Does Water Speed Metabolism?

Q&A: Can drinking water speed up your metabolism?

Yes, says Rachel Brandeis, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association, but the effect is tiny and temporary at best. "You might burn a few extra calories, but it won't translate into any long-term, meaningful changes," she explains. One study found that subjects who drank half a liter of water a day had a 30 percent increase in metabolism -- but the boost lasted just 40 minutes.

Any exercise that instructs you to "tighten your abs" (#4) is probably not going to be very effective in strengthening the abs because it is very difficult to pay attention to multi aspects of an exercise at the same time. If tightening the abs isn't crucial in performing the move, you will probably let go while you are concentrating on the actual move. Anyway, no exercise will produce flat abs unless you have very little fat over them.
