*The Apple Cider Vinegar Diet has been known to help people lose weight.
*Experienced individuals in the weight loss business suggest three teaspoonfuls of apple cider vinegar before meals.
*Tests have claimed that the pectin in the apples along with the acidity of the vinegar may actually be a good fat and weight loss agent.
* Apple cider vinegar cleans your stomach out and curves your appetite.
Dr. Andrew Weil offers his expert opinion on this matter:
“There is absolutely no scientific evidence showing that apple cider
vinegar can aid in weight loss or that it contains any magic
ingredients that help you to shed pounds. Back in the 1970s when this
diet took its place among the many weight loss fads and scams,
proponents claimed that somehow a combination of apple cider, kelp,
vitamin B-6, and lecithin fooled the body’s metabolism into burning
fat faster than it would normally.
These days the claims are far less elaborate - supposedly, all you
need to do to lose weight is to take one, two, or three teaspoons of
apple cider vinegar before every meal, starting with one teaspoon and
then working up to two or three. I understand that taking more than
three teaspoons isn’t supposed to lead to better results. The only
dieting advice you get with this “diet” is to eat moderate portions at
meals, avoid snacking, and wait for the apple cider vinegar to reduce
your hunger and food cravings.”
Also, remember the phrase 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away?'
