Ways Apple Cider Vinegar Helps with Weight Loss

1. Cuts Blood Sugar and Insulin

Apple Cider VinegarApple cider vinegar’s weight loss boost is partly due to the fact that it cuts blood sugar and insulin.

When you add it to your daily diet you feel full longer. That means you eat less.

Studies have shown that when people add it to high-carb meals, they feel full faster. This leads to taking in almost 300 fewer calories later in the day.

2. Boosts Metabolism

On top of that, a study showed that ACV boosts the levels of an enzyme that increases how fast fat is burned in the body. It also cuts the amount of fat and sugar that the liver makes.

Those two things lead to improved metabolic function.

3. Blasts Belly Fat

One of the most exciting things about ACV is that it has been shown to cut fat storage around the  belly and the risk of obesity.

One study showed that people who drank small amounts of apple cider vinegar for 12 weeks had lower body weight.

They also cut BMI, visceral fat (AKA the deadly fat), waist measurements and triglyceride levels.

4. Blocks Starch

One of the most important things that ACV does is block the body’s ability to digest starch.

According to the lead author of a study about its effects, “If you’re interfering with the digestion of starch, less is being broken down into calories in the bloodstream.”

If you’re going to try ACV, don’t expect a huge change. The studies that have been done show small improvements.

People who drank 1 tablespoon a day over 12 weeks lost 2.6 pounds.

People who had 2 tablespoons a day lost 3.7 pounds.

It’s a helper but not a magic bullet and you still need to eat sensibly and exercise.

The Best Way to Use Apple Cider Vinegar for Weight Loss

Adding apple cider vinegar to your diet is one of the easiest changes you can make.

All you need to do is to mix a teaspoon or 2 to a glass of water and drink it before each meal. That’s enough to make you less hungry.

If you find you don’t like the taste, try it in this 3 Ingredient Tonic or one of these 5 ACV Brew recipes instead.

Not All ACV is Created Equally

If you’re going to try to lose weight using vinegar, make sure that you’re getting the right one. You can’t just buy any vinegar you find on the shelf and expect it to work.

If you look for organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar with the “mother” visible in the bottle, you can be sure of getting the most health benefits.

Yours in health.
