Water & wt. loss: You can drink both warm and cold water to help you lose weight. When you restrict caloric intake and exercise you want to remain hydrated typically with cold fluids. Note that if you have a warm beverage ( i.e. broth, herbal tea) before meals, you will delay gastric emptying and hence feel fuller faster when eating the rest of your meal.

drink a full glass of water 10 minutes before every meal to help you feel fuller during the meal itself. The aim is that you will consume less solid food during the meal.
