Apple Cider Vinegar Diet

Is the apple cider vinegar approach to weight loss sweet, or sour?

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Detox diets, cleanses and fasts seem to be all the rage right now. From losing weight to ridding your body of toxins, many people swear by the effects of putting their bodies and minds through the challenge of a cleanse. One such popular cleansing diet is the apple cider vinegar program.

It's yet to be determined if the benefits of apple cider vinegar are worthwhile for weight loss. Even still, some suggest that the acidity of the vinegar mixed with the pectin found in apples can offer an easy answer to dropping pounds.

While pectin has been linked with lowering cholesterol, it's still unclear whether there is a connection with weight loss. A 2005 study of 12 people found that those who ate a piece of bread along with small amounts of white vinegar felt fuller and more satisfied than those who just ate the bread.

On the apple cider vinegar diet, you consume a few teaspoons of this pucker-worthy liquid a few times a day. Organic apple cider vinegar is a top-choice among enthusiasts.

PRO
  • Apple Cider Vinegar Diet is not expensive
  • Apple cider vinegar as a health tonic has shown positive results in animal studies
CON
  • No solid documented evidence of its benefits
  • Apple cider vinegar has a pungent taste
  • May cause stomach and throat irritation
  • Long-term use can cause bone loss and a potassium deficiency
  • Can interact with other medications
DIET and NUTRITION

Here is what you do on the apple cider vinegar diet: Take no more than three teaspoons of apple cider vinegar about 15 minutes before each meal. Regular users recommend prepping your stomach by taking one teaspoon to start with and easing into more.

The apple cider vinegar diet does not prescribe a menu or meal plan. Just eat in moderation with sensible portions and skip the snacks. Over time, the vinegar will decrease hunger and urges to nibble.

If the flavor becomes too much to handle, you can find apple cider vinegar tablets.

EXERCISE

Not really applicable since this address something very specific in the benefits of apple cider vinegar. But, the book does broach the subject a little.

CONCLUSION

Since the benefits of apple cider vinegar are still inconclusive, it’s hard to make a solid recommendation. Some research shows that it does have some health benefits like reducing cholesterol and as possible aid in weight loss. But since there are a few apparent serious risks involved, speak to your doctor before consuming apple cider vinegar, especially if you have osteoporosis or take any medications.

A Bowen Healer told me to take 2-3 tsp with a small amount of water and to add a little sugar if I couldn't take the taste...he also explained that this is better for you stomach than Prevacid...that reflux is actually due to your stomach NOT having enought acid rather than too much...I'm going to try it because I not only need to loose weight, but I want to get off all these chemicals the doctors have me on...

I took two teaspoons on Sunday and weighed myself before and after....I lost two pounds! It's very hard to swallow...but it's worth it.

I haven't tried this "diet" yet, but I do drink it with 8oz of water a few times week. Maybe you should the 3 tsp. in water instead of taking shots.


sam

I jsut started taking the pill form of it and in a week I can eat smaller portions with out being hungry after and i almost never was to snack. I think it's really working


Jamie

My mom has used this diet and she looks great now. But I hated the smell everytime she drank it.


Gloria

They also make a pill if you can't handle the taste. Plus, it protects the enamle on your teetch.


didi

i've been using ephederine pills. but if this keeps you from feeling hungry too it's probably cheaper. those pills can get expensive!


cable guy

This is a good "man" diet. People just think you're taking an aspirin or something.


Shanda
