Cold Drinks For Weight Gain
By Atom Bergstrom
Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) told me to drink cold drinks to gain weight.
Warm drinks help lose weight.
The stomach’s preferred temp is 101° Fahrenheit, according to old-school Western medicine.
Re: And yet, common advice is for dieters to drink ice water in order to burn more calories.
Cold water burns more calories … but puts on more weight.
Science is more interested in logic than results!
There is an exception to the rule.
Very cold drinks can induce shock, resulting in edematous weight gain — not our highest choice.
Re: What about the stories of cold beverages leaching Qi from your body?
Qi is beyond cold and heat. Qi protects us from the Four Elements, but not from the Fifth Element.
“Qi stagnation and blood deficiency” (to borrow Oriental terms) cause vulnerability to cold and wind.
Re: What is the Fifth Element?
PRESENCE (Open Sky).
That’s why adverse weather (the Four Elements in conflict) can often be mitigated by singing The Elemental Song (usually to the tune of My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean) …
We love you, we love you, we love you,
Our dear Elementals, we do.
All beings of Air, Fire, and Water,
And beings of Earth, we love you.
I Am Presence,
Free all Elementals, the great, the small.
I Am Presence.
Through them give protection to all.
