I’m sure if you have attempted any kind of weight loss program you have scrolled through Google looking for a quick fix… what can make the pounds fall off faster than just doing a workout or having to eat healthy and cut out your favorite fatty foods.
Most of you have probably seen the ads come up on your favorite social media site, seen and read articles about celebrities that swear by it, and also probably seen the famous Dr. OZ speak about it on his daytime talk show. Apple Cider Vinegar seems to be the new fad going on and everyone is rushing to try it…. BUT does it really work? What are the benefits? Is it really as good for you as they say it is? What else can apple cider vinegar do? AND the big main question CAN IT HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?
SO…. Here’s the scoop! Apple cider vinegar has been used in weight loss regiments for years. It is fermented apples that naturally produce their own acid that really your body needs to be able to sustain a healthy blood sugar level but of course the pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know that. ACV also helps to suppress your appetite; apple cider vinegar makes you eat less by producing a feeling of satiety sooner. ACV also taps into psychological mechanisms that promote healthy weight loss. Of course with any new diet or weight loss regiment you should always consult your doctor.
ACV has so many other benefits not only for weight loss, it can help regulate your blood pressure, helps control your sugars if you are diabetic, helps with acid reflux. ACV also is very good for your skin and teeth. Of course excessive amounts can ruin the enamel on your teeth due to the acidic nature but as long as you rinse your mouth after or brush you will be ok. You can also wash your hair with ACV to help with growth and to make it fuller. It can too be used as a household cleaner and it doesn’t have all of the harmful chemicals like in other off the shelf cleaners.
So how do you take ACV? What are the measurements and mixture? There are MANY recipes you can find on line, it just depends on what you are looking to use ACV for. If you are looking for a weight loss mixture most of them call for 2 tablespoons of ACV in the morning mixed with some honey and lemon for taste in 8 ounces of water 30 minutes prior to consuming your first meal. It is said that it will give you an instant boost of energy and help suppress your hunger.
There are many different brands of ACV on the shelf; picking one can be a little overwhelming. The best is organic, and one that reads MOTHER on the front label that means that it is free of any and all artificial flavors and colors it is all natural. The taste is a little rough to get past but if you are willing to give it a try they say 30 days is the normal time period to start to see results in weight from the ACV but the benefits of your skin and energy levels can be within days.
SO….ARE YOU READY TO GIVE IT A TRY…..?
