Does drinking cold liquid on a hot day have the effect of making you hotter? Should you then drink hot water on a hot day?

I heard exactly the same thing from a Native American "spiritual teacher" (I don't want to call him a "medicine man" because I'm not actually sure he thought of himself as such; he was a pipe-carrier, though).

I am personally drinking cold water in today's heat, but for some time, I tried to take his advice. I begin to suspect he was wrong, as the reply to the above thread suggests.

What d'yall think?

I almost never drink cold water. I've never looked up the truth behind it but what I've heard was that you absorb more of the water when its closer to your body temp than when it's cold.

i've heard of that too.
i think there is a thing in japan
'eating sizzling hot ramen on a hot day'
that supposedly might make your body feel cooler outside.

not that i know much about other factors though. makes sense to me.

If drinking cold water makes you feel better then do it. Someone's made up superstitions don't mean shit compared to what your body tells you. I drink cold water, but I also never get hot. My comfort zone is between 85 and 105 degrees Celsius and the higher the humidity the better. I think that may be why I have gravitated to working in kitchens. Who knows, maybe I'm just a freak with a brain tumor on the temperature control lobe. All that I know is that Robbie and I would not be able to drive cross country without a long stoned argument about the vehicle's appropriate climate.

Some of the old men I've worked with drink hot coffee in the hot
summertime for those same reasons. I've not tried it as cold water
always seems to do the trick for me.

Jeff was the next person I wanted to meet in person from this forum
and it saddens me to find out now that we may not even be able to
sit in the same room together.

its pretty easy math
its only dangerous if you need to conserve energy
your body has to waste/use energy to make the water the same temp as your body
so body temp water should be the best
thats old survival skill training indian style
jeffs right drink it cold if you like
but too much too cold on a hot can fuck you up bad

another water trick is to drink a lot before you go to sleep if you need to get up early

When I lived in Indonesia as an exchange student, I quickly realized that no one drank cold drinks on all of the hottest days. They drank warm tea. And you know what? It fucking worked.

Now that I'm back in the USA, I'll take a cold drink any day though.

I prefer hot drinks to cold soft drinks/water. I do drink loads of water at room temperature, cold water usually gives me a headache.

I pressume this thread is about drinking temperatures of no-alcohol beverages.

Energy drink or nothing, faggots.

















(I laughed for about 5 minutes at this.)

Come visit me in the winter. I'm too cheap to adequately warm my house so I can wear four shirts while you strut around the room like the cock of the walk in a t-shirt and dashing beret.

Really though, you can't wear a beret on my property.

Yes, I swing around my cold dead hands on a chain with my new prosthetic limbs. It scares off intruders.
