I hate ice cold water. I can only do room temp.
me too. I can gulp it easier at room temp or slightly cool. Even in burning hot weather it need only be slightly cool.
that said there are days when I hate water. Like real hate. I get so tired of drinking it...of constantly sipping tryna get proper intake. I will stare at my cases of water with such venom and malice sometimes and refuse to drink anything because I don't water. smh. Sometimes I wish I was raised like one of them Raw Vegan kids. This would be so much easier if I didn't know the ecstasy of Polar Grapefruit fizzy water, SAD juices and Rum & Coke.

You feel me. I wish I'd never had a taste. And it's not like my mom let me overdo it...she didn't buy soda and we had to ask for juice and then it was watered down juice concentrate at that. Though she did let me get in that Tampico.
Sidenote: I keep telling myself I'm gonna be raw vegan...I follow a bunch of them.
As do I. I've gone raw vegan a couple of times. I was actually going to try again. I've been doing some more research and reading more. What I think my prollem was (besides missing the taste of a good home burger) was that I wasn't getting enough calories. U can't eat 2 mangos for breakfast and think u gone be alright. I was so used to restriction. I had to get out of that mindset...well in the case of raw foods. Antyways... You have to eat so much more. I tried an experiment where I ate "Raw till 4" for a week (since i'm leaning in that direction). My energy shot up and my pants felt loser. I didn't weigh myself. I tracked my caloric intake on Cron-O-Meter and I was eating appx 2000-2500 most days. I was struggling to get my calories up. If I didn't I felt like I was starving. I feel that that helped me with water since I was eating a lot of water rich foods I didn't have to drink as much...or at least I felt.
I felt good ...slept better and had more energy for class but at the same time...bad habits are hard to break. No matter how they hurt you.
My next go around i'm gone try it for 30 days and see what it do. I'm procrastinating tho.
