water in the colder months

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Thu Jun 21, 2007 1:57 pm

I've been having terrible trouble getting water into myself over the last few weeks due to it being bloody freezing! The last thing I want to do is drink cold water. I think this may have had something to do with my recent diet travails too - I was thirsty but didn't want to drink cold water, so I ate instead.

I got a slice of lemon and poured on hot/boiling water. I get my water, and stay warm!!

It's an oldie, but a goodie to revisit.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Yep I do the same thing with the hot water and lemon. Sometimes I have lime instead.

Peppermint tea is another one of my favourites.

(I drink cold water too but from a bottle not a cup so it isn't a huge burst of freezing cold at once.)

I also drink warm water in the winter.

I also make herbal teas like chamomile, peppermint.

Green tea too, it also helps with suppressing appetite.

This sounds far more appealing than my theory of pouring tobasco in water :D

T2 has some awesome infusions as well. They're not tea, they're more like flavour to add to water. Turkish Green Apple is to die for, but you have to watch the sugar content.
I believe in the madness called "now".
