Default Warm Water Vs Cold?

My friend at the gym today was telling me that drinking warm water through out the day will keep your metabolism higher then drinking cold water because the cold usually slows things down i suppose. Was just wondering if anyone else has ever heard if this is true.

First of all the difference would be so insignificant in the sceme of things it's hardly something to worry about. But while cold water may slow down digestion your body has to in essence warm it up so cold water will require you body to burn more energy...not that it's so very significant.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I like warm water better. (Room temp). I've always thought it was better for the digestive system.

The other day I made the mistake of using cold water out of the fridge for my pre shake and ended up with nausea and a stomach ache for the entire workout. I almost threw up. I went and got some warm water (tepid) and it helped a lot.

warm water is discusting IMO, especially if your mixing protien and other things in it. I couldnt imagine drinking warm protien water, I just threw up a little in my mouth.

I just use tap water for my shakes - not cold, not warm, just basic. I like cold water for just general drinking purposes, though.

I'm not talking really warm. Really just plain tap water. Just not "chilled". I agree...I can't stand actual heated water. Same as Cradler, I use cold for general drinking, it's just the workout thing that causes the problem.
