Often when I eat out I end up with more food than I can eat in one sitting, so I put it away in the fridge for later or the next day. I love left overs, but the catch is that I don't heat them up, I prefer to nab a fork and dig right in straight from the fridge. More than once I've gotten take out, and without even touching it, put it straight into the fridge for later simply because it tasted better cold.
I know this sounds extremely random, but I was kind of wondering if there were any effects to eating cold food vs hot because I've come across diet tips saying you should drink COLD water because your body uses energy to heat it up. Albeit water, warm or cold, is good for you, but I was wondering if the same principle applied to cold food as well. I'm not trying to lose weight or anything (come on, I'm talking about take-out food here!) I'm just curious.
Searched online and came up with nothing, how disappointing! Does anyone know if the temperature of food has any good/bad effects on the body? Also tried searching "cold food diet" even though I'm not looking for a diet, has anyone heard of or tried this?
