Last night at our tops meeting, a kops (someone who has lost all their weight) suggested this (her idea, but I found this on a website):
Apple cider vinegar and weight loss
It helps to detoxify the liver which plays an important role in weight loss. There are historical facts that Egyptians took apple cider vinegar for weight loss. Some claim ACV speeds up the metabolism while some claim it burns the calories to reduce appetite. To lose weight just take 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, mixed in water, before every meal.
ACV is also available in tablets and capsules. According to some nutritionists the combination of apple cider with kelp, vitamin B6 and lecithin is much more effective for weight loss than ACV alone.
Although I'm not into taking pills, etc. to lose weight (I'm trying to do this this old fashioned way with diet and working out), I think I might give this a go this week. I mean, what could it hurt? It has been a little over two months since I've started this diet, and I'm in the mood to change things up a bit. I'll let you know if it works. I would love to know if any of you have ever tried it with success. In the mean time, I'm going to continue to do my 1,000 calorie a day diet, workout and drink water like I'm a fish. :)
Have a great day, everyone - think skinny!
UPDATE - 8:37 a.m. Just drank two teaspoons of ACV in 8 oz of water. YUCK! I had to hold my nose to get it down - and then I ate breakfast right afterwards (carbrite bar) to get the horrid taste out of my mouth. I'm committed to try this for a week, but I might puke in the mean time...it is so horrible! Maybe next time I'll dilute it a little bit more...I'm fully open to suggestions on this one!
