  • Well, #1, your body is MOSTLY water, so you need it to thrive and flourish, and should be drinking it no matter what. But as far as the fats go, water breaks down the water-soluble fats to digest easier. Also while you're burning the fat, you're body using that water to flush it out (and sweat), so the water replenishes you.

  • It has helped me drop 17 lbs!

    The colder the water the better, it lowers your body temp and this causes your body to have to work to stay at a constant internal temp....therefore burning more calories.

    It flushes out the fat that you are loosing too.

    Drinking water can also help hunger, it fills you up and causes you to eat less.

  • Ice cold water burns calories, but not many.
    One day's worth of 64oz water burns about 70 calories if it is ice cold.

  • This may be the dumbest question ever.

    Water involved in every function your body performs. It is the primary component of every cell in your body and all body fluids including: blood, lymph, saliva, cerebrospinal fluid, intestinal juices, gastric juices, and pancreatic juices.

    Dehydration is loss of water and important blood salts like potassium (K+) and sodium (Na+). If you become extremely dehydrated, damage can occur to the kidneys, brain, and heart.
