It may sounds like an extreme diet but the benefits of apple cider vinegar for weight loss could actually be more than just a fad.
The diet has a steady following of avid fans, who believe it’s helped them shift the pounds steadily.
What is the cider vinegar diet?
Less a diet and more a supplement, to get the benefits of apple cider vinegar for weight loss you luckily don’t have to drink too much of the tangy stuff. Just a spoonful before each meal will do.
Who is it good for?
This is one for people who are keen to eat more healthily in general, because it’s not a miracle cure and probably won’t work before a big old burger and chips!
Adopting a balanced, sensible diet of plenty of fruit veggies, lean meat and fish should do the trick, with the vinegar solution helping things along nicely.
What does a typical day look like?
A typical day will look much like your typical now, with one key addition. Cider vinegar.
Simply mix 1 – 2 teaspoons of vinegar in a glass of water before each meal, drinking the solution three times a day.
What are the pros?
Users of cider vinegar to help with weight loss report that this one little trick helps gradually shift weight in a maintained way.
The thought behind this is that the acid in the vinegar aids digestion. Plus, apples are a good source of pectin, which can make you feel fuller and more satisfied. Cider vinegar contains the same amount of pectin as apples (which is roughly 1.5 grams per apple) so will help suppress your appetite in a similar way, leading to you eating less of your main meal.
What are the cons?
The very obvious having to drink vinegar con is probably the biggest, but other than that this diet supplement is pretty fuss-free. And if the results are to be believed then we’ll happily throw back a glass of tangy water three times a day!
