In Response to Re: In my oven.........:
For you dieters....I know this will sound silly and unbelievable; but it worked for me. My older (and smarter Brother) told me that he would drink a glass of ice cold water before each meal. He said he lost over 50 pounds in one year. I laughed (LOL), how was a glass of ice water going to help me to lose weight? But to keep him happy, I said I would try it! One year ago, I weighed 183!!! EGADS!! When I was at the Doc's office on Wednesday, I weighed 148!!!! Still would like to go a bit lower (I'm not even 5 foot), so I am still drinking the ice cold water!! I used to drink a lot of soda pop.....I do not drink that any more. Perhaps that has something to do with it.

The ice water does several things.
1. quite often when you think you are hungry you are dehydrated. Your body recognizes "hunger" before thirst so people eat rather than drink.
2. The glass of water fills quite a bit of the stomach so you feel full faster.
3. The ice water needs to be heated and your body uses energy to raise the temperature of the water. So you are expending a few calories to raise the temperature of the water before it can be digested.
