Health Tips – 4. Hydrate

Drink cold water – not good if you’re thirsty / dehydrated!

Researchers found that drinking 6 cups of cold water a day can raise resting metabolism by about 50 calories daily, with essentially zero additional effort. This is due to the ‘extra work’ your body needs to do in order to heat the water to body temperature.

If you are dehydrated, you may be burning up to 2 percent fewer calories.
