Default I found this about water - Food for thought

Was reading the other thread a couple of days ago about water killing someone after a work out. I found this in the most recent issue of Prevention Mags "Weight Loss" issue. You guys may alread know this info, but on page 25 it says this:

"A German study showed that drinking cold water burns calories. Drinking about 2 cups of cold water, no warmer than 72 degrees, used up roughly 25 calories. About 40% of the burn was for bringing the water from drinking temperature to body temperature. Drink a liter a day and you're loosing 5 pounds a year."

I know the other thread indicated that the guy had been working out and drank the water afterwards, so this is not the same thing. However, I found it really interesting, I'd heard this before, but never read it in a health mag or anything. Food for thought.
