Weight Loss With Apple Cider Vinegar

Mar 2, 2008
History records the benefits of apple cider vinegar actually long before Johnny Appleseed transversed the continent planting trees. The vinegar was used in England in the 15th century to combat the Bubonic Plague. Apple Cider Vinegar has been used in this country for many years as an aid in keeping the blood vessels clear and the vessel walls in good repair. How could we have dill pickles with out it? In this article we will consider apple cider vinegar as it relates to weight loss.

Normally we would not consider using an acid substance for weight control. After all the ideal ph for our bodies is sightly basic (caustic) and apple cider vinegar is acidic. That bothered me until I found out that our digestive system will convert it to basic. As far as I know that only applies to vinegar.

One of the diet benefits of apple cider vinegar is that it increases the body's metabolism which in turn lets us consume more calories. An added extra is that it contains pectin. Pectin is believed to lower cholesterol. Take one to three teaspoons in your favorite non carbonated or non milk beverage before each meal. If you try and take a large quantity or take it straight it will take your breath away. It might be good to start with the smaller quantity.

In selecting an apple cider vinegar source look for some that has what is called "the mother" liquor.That would be a milky or cloudy looking substance at or near the bottom of the container. Often that can be found on the grocery store shelves. What you do not want is a distilled vinegar. The distillation process will leave the beneficial qualities behind. A visit to your local vitamin or health food store should put you in touch with a high quality vinegar containing the mother liqueur. You will end up paying a lot more there, but, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have right product.

While you are at the health food store inquire if they carry the apple cider vinegar capsules. For people who simply cannot stand taking the vinegar-like I said earlier it can take your breath away- the capsules are a good option. The capsules allow us to continue to take the vinegar when it not convenient to mix a cider tonic. Actually that may be the way to go as it is certainly less bother and mess.

This diet is an easy plan to follow. There are no known taboo foods as some diet plans require. As with any diet you will want to exercise some control over snack foods consumption and use sensible food portions with your meals. Your diet plan should include drinking plenty of water. Read that as water and not liquids. Liquids includes soft drinks, coffee and any malt beverages or anything that is not just water.

The apple cider vinegar diet is a simple and almost effortless way to diet and can be an important weight loss remedy without restricting what you can eat. Combine that with some moderate physical exercise and notice the pounds drop down.
