This is Why Room Temperature Water is Winning

A few months ago, wrote a hilarious post titled "Shit that Bougie Black People Love" and one of the things on the list was that bougie black people only drink room temperature water. While the post was nothing short of laughs, it does prompt the question: is room temperature water better than cold water?

The answer is surprisingly yes. While cold water may taste better and all around feel better going down, water at room temperature detoxes and is better for digestion. According to, drinking cold water, especially while eating, requires a lot of energy and takes food longer to break down. So before you judge your bougie black friend for not offering ice with your water, maybe you should give room temperature water a shot especially if you're trying to lose weight.
