I found another article that referenced 3 studies saying that it increased resting metabolic rate by 24%, 30%, and 4.5% for 60 minutes following consumption of a half liter of ice water. The results aren’t conclusive but on average it’s a boost of 19% and on the low side 4.5% which are both positive. Even if the results of the study were close to 0% I would still do use it as an excuse to get my recommended daily intake. I found this article that estimates water requirement that is pretty easy to follow.
I was going to keep my ‘before’ license, so when I went in to the DMV I told them I lost it. The woman said it wasn’t a problem since they have them electronically now. She asked me my name and address then hit enter. She got this wrinkled up look on her face and leaned closer to the monitor without saying a word or looking at me. I started to chuckle, knowing exactly what she was thinking.
BIG SECRET people are always looking for. Eat right and Exercise THE END
I still keep the ‘before’ in my wallet to remind myself of where I once was in my life. One of my favorite posts from a while back.... "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." ~ George Santayana
