What To Know About The Popular Ice Hack Diet
The ice hack diet has taken over the internet, racking up more than 122 million views. It involves drinking cold water or ice before a meal to help your body lose calories.
While the body tries to warm itself up and restore temperature balance, it loses calories. The diet also requires intermittent fasting, caloric restriction, and exercise.
The whole idea of the ice hack is an attempt to sell the Alpilean dietary supplement — capsules that contain ingredients derived from the Himalayan Alps.
Alpilean’s manufacturers have concluded that persistent belly fat is a result of a decrease in our body’s internal temperature in recent years, per Infomednews.
The Alpilean supplement targets the body’s internal organs’ temperature, increasing it to the optimal level of 37 degrees Celsius (or 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
However, while it’s true that our body’s internal temperature has decreased, many other factors come into play, including unhealthier diet habits and less active lifestyles.
Therefore, no evidence to date has been provided to back up their proprietary claims. If you want to try it, be sure to discuss with your doctor before starting a new supplement.
