Why You Should Never Drink Iced Water? 為何你不應該再喝冰水?

Whenever you go to eat somewhere in a restaurant, you should always ask your server for water with no ice and they will often look at you like you are crazy, because everyone is asking for ice in their beverages. But we will explain below, why you should do that. What Happens When You Drink Cold Water

  • Drinking cold water after a meal creates excess mucus in your body, which can lead to a decrease in immune system function, making it easier to catch illnesses and colds.

  • Your blood vessels shrink, when you drink cold beverages, your hydration is hindered and digestion becomes restricted.

  • If you eat food while drinking cold beverages or immediately after, the water temperature solidifies fats from the foods we’ve just eaten and the body in turn finds it hard to digest the unwanted fats from our bodies.

  • Instead of working to absorb the nutrients and digest the food to create energy, your body is wasting energy to regulate your temperature. This can only lead to water loss.

Some people say that because ice water burns more calories, is beneficial for drinking. We argue with that statement because we do not want to make our digestive system to work harder; we want to makes things as easy on it as we can. There are many other ways to burn calories!

Benefits to Drinking Warm Water
Here are of the benefits of drinking water that is room temperature or lukewarm:

  • Your bowels move better (warm water with lemon in the morning is great for this!)

  • Increased + Faster hydration

  • It increases your bodies natural detoxification processes and purifies your blood via your skin, lymphatic system and kidneys

  • Your digestion is enhanced because the natural digestive enzymes are stimulated

  • Food breaks down more easily

Once you get into the habit of drinking warm water or at room temperature, you will notice a drastic improvement in your digestion and the way your body feels while eating and after the meal. There are also reports stating that there has been reduction in the sugar cravings.

So, the smart thing to do next time you eat out is, to ask your server to “Hold the Ice!”

每當你到餐廳吃飯,若你跟侍應說你想要一杯暖水或熱水,你會發現身邊的人均會對你的選擇感到驚訝,因為喝冰水在別人看來才是「正常」的! 即管如此,我們還是會建議你向冰水說不!看看這篇文章,你便會找出原因所在。


  • 在進餐後喝冰水,會使身體產生過多黏液,從而導致身免疫能力下降,令身體更易生病和感冒。

  • 喝冷水令血管收縮,身體難以保持體內水份,使消化變得困難。

  • 當你一邊進食一邊喝冰水 ,或進食後立刻喝冰水,冰水的溫度會把食物中的脂肪凝固,使身體難以消化多餘的脂肪。

  • 冰水令身體溫度下降,使身體專注於調節體溫,而乏略了營養吸收和食物消化,因而影響整體健康。


喝暖水的好處 以下是喝室溫水或微溫水的好處,

  • 有助於身體排便(早上喝檸檬水是最好的選擇)

  • 快速為身體補水,滋潤身體

  • 增加身體的掛毒過程,並透過皮膚、淋巴系統和腎臟淨化血液

  • 刺激體內消化酶,增強身體的消化能力

  • 身體更容易分解食物

當你習慣了喝冰水或室溫水,你會發現身體的消化能力會大幅改善!另外,亦有一些報告指出,喝暖水有助於減低人體對糖分的渴求。 所以,做一個聰明健康人,下次出外吃飯時,來一杯「走冰水」吧!
