7 Pounds lost in Two Weeks with ACV!
(Redondo Beach, CA, USA)
One of my best friends somehow came across literature for Apple Cider Vinegar and its many benefits for human consumption (use as a health supplement).
I have been trying to lose weight for *several* years, and she particularly noticed the claims for weight loss. She instructed me to drink 2 tsps. of the ACV in a 10 oz. glass of water before every meal.
I did not follow it religiously, drank it one or two times a day, and not necessarily before every meal (sometimes after meals, or between meals).
The first thing I noticed was an odd sense of clarity and a slight change in awareness of my energy level (it went up) upon downing the ACV/water drink.
The taste is pungent, sour, and provides a little "zing". (My friend compared to the flavor to Kombucha - I believe it is a good likening... similar.)
It has only been two weeks, but I am so excited. Even without following the instructions to the letter, I have lost 6.8 lbs!!!
Granted, I weighed 218 lbs. (on a 5'1 frame - morbidly obese), so my weight loss is (as is always) marked at first. I expect the weight loss to slow down quite a bit through time. I am now 211.2.
I am so excited! Whoever thought that weight loss could be accomplished so easily with such a simple adjustment? What I notice the most is that my appetite has decreased (portion size has decreased), and that I seem to sometimes actually *crave* healthy foods.
Other than that, I have not changed a thing. I have not changed the kinds of foods I eat really (besides the occasional anachronistic yearning for carrots), have not switched to low-fat or low-carb replacements, have not weighed or measured a thing!
Thank you ACV! I look forward to more weight loss in the recent future, and in time to come!
(NOTE: I will post when I reach my weight loss goal: 128 lbs. final!!!)
