|Apple cider vinegar on Jul 22, 2011 @ 04:33 am|
I ahve been heard apple cider vinegar helps to lose weight but i never use apple cider vinegar..I use apple cider vinegar only for acne treatment.
Do not drink apple cider vinegar without any medical advice.

I'm curious how you'd use apple cider vinegar to lose weight?
I've said it before and I'll say it again - my best advice to losing weight and keeping it off is to not go with an extreme regimen but rather to tweak your existing lifestyle toward healthier choices: more well-rounded and reduced-fat diet, more exercise, better habits (like reducing stress, getting enough sleep, etc), join a weight loss support group or create your own with a friend to be accountable, etc.
An extreme fix might help you lose weight initially, but we hear over and over that such things often lead to yo-yo weight loss/gain AND you are endangering your health at the same time because these short term solutions often involve drastic diets that are unhealthy.
Find a plan that helps you lose weight gradually but steadily. Make it a plan that you could realistically follow for the rest of your life (initially it'd be tailored to weight loss, but once you reach your goal it becomes about maintaining your weight and being healthier overall).

This is interesting I've never heard of using apple cider vinegar to lose weight but like what Mamaluv said, how does it do that? Like are you talking about drinking it or putting it in food, etc?
And does it really work?
|I think you drink it. on Jul 22, 2011 @ 10:23 am|
My dad drinks it every night, and it doesn't actually taste that bad if you mix it with some water. Apple cider vinegar does have a lot of health benefits, but I'm not sure why it would be called a diet option. Possibly because it helps promote bowel movement?
I agree with Claire, there is no "simple solution" to losing weight. A huge part of losing weight is controlling what you eat, and getting enough exercise.
Nevertheless, you should try this vinegar! It won't do any harm to your body anyway.
|increasing acid? on Jul 23, 2011 @ 11:16 am|
First of all - I don't know for sure. I would guess that the acid helps break down food better/faster and which aids digestion. I have tried this in the past ... but for digestion. My concern is what taking the vinegar would do to your tooth enamel and esophagus. Not sure I'd buy into this as a diet aid... maybe talk to a homeopath / nutritionist and see what they think it will do for you...and what would actually work to assist you with your weight loss goals.
|I dont think ACV makes much of a difference on Jul 26, 2011 @ 01:13 am|
I used to be a diet pill junkie and one of the pills I took were apple cider vinegar pills. Don't quote me on this, but I think they're pretty much just a digestive aid. On their own I dont think they really would help you lose a significant amount of weight or anything, but it does help your body break down food.
On the subject of pills though, I agree with what mamaluv said - changing your diet & lifestyle goes is so much better than pills. Not only does the weight loss have a much better chance of being permanent, but your energy levels will be higher as well. And there's also the few cases where you start to rely on pills (mentally and physically) and that can get dangerous for your health... my little sis was hospitalized 4 times for anorexia, she nearly died twice, and when I was her age I was taking diet pills, it started with 1 type to help lose a few lbs. Eventually I was taking an average of 6-8 pills twice a day for meals that consisted of a bottle of water and a granola bar. I know these are extreme examples, and yes sometimes some people do need something to help "kick start" weight loss, but personally Im really not much of a supporter of diet pills. IMO the risks outweigh the benefits too much from what Ive seen.
Changing your focus to having a healthier lifestyle (rather than focusing solely on the weight) is a way to practically guarantee that you wont get into the yo-yo dieting, in the long run its so much healthier!
|Apparently true on Aug 10, 2011 @ 09:43 pm|
I found a site that claims it breaks down fat among having many many other benefits. I tried to drink acv once and couldn't stomach it. Then I tried to make a salad dressing out of it and the taste was still too strong.
Does anyone have advice on comfortably ingesting acv??
|Pills on May 09, 2012 @ 01:35 pm|
I tried Apple Cider Vinegar pills (can be found in the vitamin section in any store) and I believe it's used as an appetite suppressant and helps release access liquids (from bloating) in the body! I only used them for a short period of time seeing as their quite acidic and did a number on my already weak stomach!
|Here's the skinny on ACV on May 10, 2012 @ 04:11 pm|
One of my fave athletes Tosca Reno has blogged about the benefits of ACV, mostly being to reduce bloating check it out
|tried it on May 22, 2012 @ 10:34 pm|
I have tried it any never say a huge difference, but then again.... I didn't have much to loose to begin with. I know a lot of people who swear by, however. I couldn't take the awful taste.
