    I remember when i was like 12 i used to eat ice a lot.

    And that got me thinking, wouldn't that be a plausible way of weight loss? Eat ice for every meal?

    So it'd still 'fill you up' and if you felt hungry you could just eat more ice, but you'd effectively just be drinking wasser.

    Is this a million dollar idea or WUT ROFL!?

    You might find that your body actually requires nutrients that cannot be found in water (ice).

    Its gotta be proper juice though. It isn't as solid as ice when it freezes.

    That'll just make you hungrier, since your chewing action will activate your stomach juices anticipating food, and you'll only be giving it water.

    Ice is just water, so it'll go through your digestive system extremely quickly and the feeling of fullness will be very temporary. If you mix stuff that your body has to digest with the water (ie: soup), it'll take much longer to go through your system and will keep you feeling full for a lot longer.

    This is why it's much better to snack on wet things like soup than crisps and other dry snacks.

    You'd still be hungry! Drinking a glass of water only fills you up for a little while!

    I think it would be a good distraction to stop you snacking between meals, but it couldn't replace a meal!

    You've been spending too much time in the Health and Relationships forum. ;] :yes:

    I'd rather drink water and chew gum than eat ice. People with sensitive teeth wouldn't be able to eat ice anyway without considerable difficulty (and probably a lot of pain).

    Just inject all the nutrients and everything you want into the ice :yes:

    (Oh wait, you may as well just eat normally for all that effort).

    People have eaten ice when lost in the mountains and sustained themselves for weeks. I might get myself lost in the Alps one day just to see if will work (if you hear another Briton has been lost whilst conquering the mountains then you'll know it's me)

    Drinking liquid is one method of reducing hunger.

    Obviously only drinking water will not do you well.
