In a study from Germany, researchers reported that drinking water boosts your body’s calorie burning rate by 30%. Ten minutes after 14 men and women drank just over a pint of water, their metabolism sped up, and within 40 minutes, it reached a peak burning stage that lasted more than one hour. Since the metabolism spike is partly due to the body’s efforts to warm the water you drink, cold water works best.

    Yea, I know the chinese drink only warm water throughout the day which I think it has to do with removing grease and clear the body from toxics as cold water as they claim makes the grease more solid and harder flush out of your system.

    Japanese also state that if you drink 4 glasses of water every morning on an empty stomach, you will avoid “and cure” the following diseases:
    Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

    Water can do magic I guess. 🙂
