Re: Is it true that you’ll burn an extra 250-500 calories a day by drinking 8 glasses of ice cold water?
Yes, you’ll burn extra calories, but you’ll GAIN weight, not lose it.
Those extra calories are burned by interfering with digestion, blood pressure, and heart rhythm.
Cardiologists warn their patients about the dangers of drinking liquids that are either too hot or too cold.
Weight loss and gain are determined by your body’s ability to metabolize oxygen and supervise carbon dioxide, not by the rate you burn calories.
To lose weight, do aerobic exercise at Spleen-Pancreas Time (9:00-11:00 a.m.) and drink Spring Temperature liquids immediately thereafter.
To gain weight – structural weight, not residual weight – do aerobic exercise at Urinary Bladder Time (3:00-5:00 p.m.) and drink Autumn Temperature liquids immediately thereafter.
This relates to the four daily cycles of Solar Nutrition …
(1) Spring of the Body – 3:00-9:00 a.m.
(2) Summer of the Body – 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
(3) Autumn of the Body – 3:00-9:00 p.m.
(4) Winter of the Body – 9:00 p.m.-3:00 a.m.
In turn, this relates to our biphasic annual cycle of food metabolism.
(1) Phase One lasts from April to October.
It’s a period of sugar-burning activity with a lipid reserve stored for winter hibernation.
(2) Phase Two lasts from October to April.
It’s a period of relative inactivity when lipids are burned more readily than in the previous phase.
This biphasic mechanism “mimics that of hibernation in lower animals.”
Human hibernation genes are located primarily in the pancreas, and help regulate pancreatic lipase.
It’s the primary enzyme for breaking down fat molecules – when activated by bile acid and colipase.
