Does my body burn energy trying to stay cool?

Does your body burn more energy trying to keep cool than it would trying to warm up?

The body does use more energy trying to warm up as stated above, it's good that you're drinking lots of water as we can lose alot of weight through water loss and it is not a true indication of weight loss or energy use.

Drinking water will also consume energy in the fact that the body needs to warm up the liquid to 98.6 F. Unless you want to drink body temp water when it's hot outside (yuck!)
