I love cold water! Especially in this weather. I hardly ever drink room temp water - it's really warm here.

I like to drink temp water because it's easier to go down and I drink lots of it. Cold water gives me brain freeze.

I've heard it the other way and this way...also that you are more likely to consume larger amounts of room temp water. I've also heard that about cold water burning more calories. Most of the time, I drink it at room temp because It's a Pain ITA to keep water in the fridge here at work. But sometimes a cold bottle of water is all I'm craving.

I have heard that cold water takes your body more effort to metabolize, so it burns more calories as well.
