Your body is expending the energy to regulate the temperature, instead of absorbing the nutrients to create energy and instead of working to digest the consumed food. This situation can lead to water loss.
When you drink cold beverages, the digestion becomes restricted, the blood vessels shrink and the hydration is hindered.
If you drink cold beverages while you eat food or after that, the water temperature solidifies fats from the eaten food and your body in turns finds it difficult to digest the undesired fats from the body.
If you drink cold water after a meal, you create excess mucus in the body that can decrease the function of your immune system, making it easier to catch illnesses and colds.
Some people think and say that the cold water is beneficial because it can burn more calories. But, we don’t want to make the digestive system to work harder, we should make the things as easy as we can.
