Quote  |  Reply

I have read up on them, and most websites i have looked at seem convincing enough to try it. 3 table spoons a day, mix with water. it helps with kcikstarting weight loss because of appetite suppressants and all that. so theres no real harm in trying it, as long as i take as directed i will be fine. Its healthy for you reguardless. So my first day trying it will be tomorro.

Oh yea, im still exercising with it too, it would be pointless to take it to lose weight without exercising, defeats the purpose of my intentions.  aha, anyone ever heard of it/done it before? Id love any insight you guys have [:

 

thanks! xoxo rach

I would suggest it with veggies, unless drinking vinegar straight is appealing to you :/ Also, I would avoid putting the shots into anything carbonated... it is like a volcano

If you mix even a tablespoon with a glass of water 3 times a day, it would be enough.  It actually doesn't taste too bad when it's diluted.  I add extra baking soda to mine sometimes. just  a pinch, it will fizz for a min but it will stop and it takes out the vinegary taste.  Also, the baking soda makes it more alkaline which is why apple cider vinegar helps people lose weight.  When you drink it, it is digested as alkaline.  If your body is too acidic it is a breeding ground for cancer, yeast/candida, etc.

Happy Drinking :)

Also, water with lemon is very alkaline, and tastes much better than apple cider vinegar!

My mom tried that one years ago.  Didn't really work for her and in fact it started making her sick to her stomach and she can't stand the smell of vinegar to this day :(  Don't think it did anything for her weight either, she is still morbidly obese.  Good luck tho, you might find it works for you :)

Distilled white vinegar mixed 3-to-1 with water, is great for washing windows ~ much better than Windex.

Vinegar can also be great as a fabric softener.

I tried drinking vinegar once ~ it grossed me out. But there are some awesome salad dressings you can make with vinegar .... plus then you can eat all sorts of yummy fresh veggies.

Do let us know how you go with this - it would be interesting to see it first hand! There's been a few small studies that have shown it increasing satiety after a meal, also subjects had less of an insulin spike after eating carbs with it.

Really? All vinegars contain acetic acid, and have a pH around 2-3. Alkaline substances have pH's of 7-14. Vinegar, lemon juice, coke, battery acid etc are not alkaline.

Also, how does your body become acidic? Cancer is caused by mutations in DNA/RNA/protein in cells. Candida is the result of an infection - commonly due to impaired immune function.

How did you arrive at these conclusions?

the way your body digests these things (vinegar, lemons, apples, oranges, etc NOT COKE, and you don't drink battery acid ;)) are acidic when you taste them but your body converts them to alkaline http://thealkalinefoods.com/ .  Your body becomes acidic from eating too much meat, too much processed white flour and sugar, etc.  Candida is actually an overgrowth of yeast, and they claim that cancer is actually a type of fungus.  People can heal themselves naturally from cancer.

Drinking a shot of vinegar (acid) even dilluted down with water can do some damage to your stomach and esophagus and/or give you heartburn. 

My suggestion is to mix it with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and pour it over some veggies as a side salad to a healthy well-balanced meal. 

But that's just me....

Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water takes AWAY heartburn.  yes i would advise you brush your teeth afterwards though.

Drinking an acid to get rid of acid seems counter-intuitive to me.  But I full admit I'm no doctor.  :-) 

I still think it's better to have a salad than drink vinegar, dilluted or not.  And I say that as someone who really likes vinegar and used to drink it straight as a child :-D

my boyfriend has suffered SEVERELY with acid reflux/heartburn for the past 3 years.  he just recently discovered the wonders of apple cider vinegar.  he drinks a tablespoon with baking soda in a glass of water if he has heartburn or acid reflux and it immediately goes away.  he's been doing it for a few months and now he rarely gets heartburn/acid reflux.  And it's not the food he's been eating that has made it go away because he has been eating the same things and he's  the healthiest person I know.

But yes, if you do have it on a salad you're still getting the benefits from it :)

I...see. What an interesting idea.

You make a valid point about candida - when I say infection I'm referring to the impairment of function in/on the body that it causes. It would have been more appropriate to specify "fungus".

Well, with regards to the alkaline foods idea - I guess everyone has a choice in what they believe. I choose scientifically demonstrated theories - like the small studies I mentioned earlier which might demonstrate apple cider vinegar's effects.

i just took my first shot this morning, and WOW i am going to have to dilute it with something! holy craaap! i almost threw up it was so gross. and now i keep re-living the horrific taste every time i burp lmao!
