    ...that ice cold water speeds up your metabolism by 20/25%!!! So go get your water, stick in some ice (or keep water in fridge) and hey presto, extra calorie burning...! :) xxx

    I know I can't stand it cold but I'm managing... I can drink loads at room temp... but I think it's worth the shivers for 25% extra calorie burning!! lol x

    Well I guess there's no way of 100% knowing unless you get some scientist to check for you! lol. But it's an easy thing to do if there's a possibility it'll help so I'm all for it.x

    Oh dear.....I hate very cold water - I drink lot's of sparkling water every day - but it has to be at room temperature, it put's my teeth 'on edge' if it's too cold.

    I heard that before, apparently alot of models drink iced water.

    I have to admit I do but, mainly in the evenings, it stops me pecking :)

    Yeah this is true I heard it on Tv before! I think because the water is sooo cold, your body uses up extra calories trying to bring your body back to a normal temperature! Thanks for reminding me im def gonna have some now :) xxxx
