Always start off your day every morning with a nice cold glass of water. it is refreshing and and very good for your body! Drinking cold water helps speed up your metabolism because your body needs to increase it to your body temperature for it to be absorbed.
i drink cold water throughout the day.
Everybody's bodies are different...some like it hot...some like it cold. It's no different with the water we drink. If you're struggling to drink your water quotient for the day maybe it's because of the temperature! I love hot foods and hot drinks...the thought of drinking cold water freaks me out...so I drink hot water (with a wedge of lemon, if possible) or room temperature water when I'm not near a kettle! It goes down so much easier than cold water!!
