What's better for you when you're trying to lose weight? Is there any difference?  What do you drink??

I've been drinking ice water, not only because its hot out but because it seems to help me feel full or somehow take the edge off those early hunger pangs.

I don't like to drink warm or hot water unless it tastes like something.

The colder the better. The reason is the water cools your body, so your body works to get your temp back up (burning more calories). I love ice water, though. I can't drink warm water, ew.

They say that colder water the better to burn calories, but because of dental sensitivity I can't drink ice cold water!
