I got this notice in my e-mail box this morning:

Is sucking on an ice cube the fastest way to burn belly fat?

Some Harvard Scientists are saying the answer is “YES”.

Apparently, sucking on ice triggers a bizarre chemical reaction in the body…

A reaction that EVAPORATES body fat…

And that’s been shown to triple your metabolism’s speed

What does this mean and is it true?
Sucking on ice would be a fun thing for me to do, especially if it will help my metabolism and therefore make it easier to lose that last 20 lbs that I want to lose to get me out of the BMI Obese category.

I don't know Dee…I have been sucking on ice my entire life..My kids use to laugh at me…because I ate all the ice out of my drink cup at the table every night (no calories wink)…and instead of bringing water bottles out with me I would bring cups of ice..(water just gets warmer faster)…I Just like Ice…and other than the 4 years I was thin from my Atkins diet in my 30's and now…all I have ever done is put on weight…

Dee, the advertisers are trying to sell you a "bill of goods" for $39.00. I don't think that it is that easy.

If it worked so well, I'd be skinny as I chewed a lot of ice for quite a while. That was before I got serious about eating a low carb high protein meal plan.

When I was chewing ice I was somewhere 240 to 250 lbs. and I really didn't lose weight

This is the "dark, or brown fat" theory steve mentioned below. And what Steve suggests about no plan can target any particular part of the body.has been proven true from all the research I've done.

I pray you don't fall for the sales pitch and pay them that $39.00.

Hi RebDee,
You made me giggle. How sweet and innocent you are. You can't believe everything you read especially on the internet. If it were true I would look like Marilyn Monroe. But I know sucking ice is a symptom
Of iron deficiency. It happens to me. I too so wish burning fat were that simple.

I have sucked and chewed on ice my whole life. If that is true, then I am very afraid of what I would have weighed at my heaviest. YIKES.

is this the theory of forcing your body to burn calories to maintain core temperature? cold showers/baths do that as well … no evidence that it targets belly fat though.

The only thing ice chips ever did for me was a symptom of iron deficiency.

I don't understand how ice chips would trigger iron deficiency. Please explain.

Sorry Reb I didn't mean ice chips cause an iron deficiency. I meant to say that chewing on ice all day was a symptom of my own iron deficiency.

I like ice chips and had just decided to start chewing on them especially when I am hungry and it is not yet time for me to eat. But I don't have iron deficiency. I still have no idea why sucking on ice shows iron deficiency,

Dee think of it this way, sucking or chewing ice may be a symptom of iron deficiency, but not the necessarily the cause of ID

My Dr told me that sucking ice was a system of iron deficiency not the cause.
Every time I start sucking ice I know it's time for a lab test.
