French translation



This is an email that I sent to my co-worker after taking ACV for just one week:

Good Morning Cheri,

I am very pleased to share with you that today marks my first week on the apple cidar vinegar diet. I really don’t consider it a diet at all because I still eat what I want.

In one week, I lost a total of 5.4 lbs! Isn’t that amazing! I mean, that is without dieting or starving.

That vinegar must have some truly fat burning properties because IT WORKS! (You can tell how excited I am…LOL!!!)

Once again, THANK YOU so much for telling me about this perfect home remedy for losing weight.

And, GOOD LUCK TO YOU in your reducing efforts!

Trying this thing called "ACV"
by: Vic

So I have here the "American Garden" brand of apple cider. I heard a lot of good feedbacks about this ACV so I decided to try it.

I bought it earlier at the super market for $2 or in Philippine Peso (95 pesos). I mixed 2 full tablespoons on a one cup of water, after I shampoo my hair I pour the mixture into my hair. And waited for 5 minutes. It really has an unpleasant smell but its okay.

So after I rinse it, I feel like nothing happened. But as I brushed my hair its like I used a conditioner even if I didn't. I usually have a tangled hair but thanks to apple cider vinegar.

Tomorrow I will mix ACV into my morning coffee or juice and Ill tell you guys after a week if I lose any weight. Because I heard that ACV can help you to lose weight.

I also have a acne problem on my forehead but I'm still thinking if I will use it there.

2 days in, weight loss 1 lb!
by: Bobbie

I discovered the benefits of ACV a few months ago and bought a bottle but didn't bother using it.

However because my weight is steadily creeping up despite diet and exercise I thought I'd at least try it for a week just to see what would happen.

I'm two days in and have already lost 1 lb! I am so chuffed. I always used to be 140 lb but following a hip replacement I gained 17 lb and also having an under active thyroid at 61 years old, losing weight was an impossibility so to me, this is a miracle.

True, it is truly disgusting to drink so I put two tbls in half a glass of water once in the morning and then last thing at night and drink it quickly through a straw.

I have discovered though that it's best to drink after a meal rather than on an empty stomach.

I initially discovered ACV as it's supposed to be able to get rid of Lipomas, that remains to be seen!

4 years update on apple cider vinegar
by: gdg

Hello ladies out there! It's been a long time since I've commented about the Apple cider vinegar.

I stated in 2011 I lost 5lbs in one week. But I have something I'd like to share with you all.....I switched from regular Apple cider vinegar to BRAGGS APPLE CIDER VINEGAR.

Taking this 3 times a day in a 8oz glass of water, eating boiled & grilled food (only) baked included, 6-8 glasses of water per day.

I also did cardio 2 hrs per day (slowing building up to these 2 hrs/ getting in those 10,000 steps 5-6 days a week. All this along with eating fruits and vegetables 4-6 times a day, everything was done in moderation.

As of today I've lost 135 lbs. All of my drinking Braggs Vinegar water paid off......(2011-2015).

I thank God everyday that I kept going. I fell off the wagon lots of times but got back on always pushing myself a little more. It can be done.

So all of you don't give up and believe in yourself. I weighed 329 now weigh 194! Good luck to all of you.:)

Wow, it actually works!
by: Bob Onit

2 TSP in approx. 8 oz of water plus a squirt of Aguave Nectar to kill the taste of the Braggs vinegar a bit.

Stated at 219 lbs about 3 weeks ago, with absolutely no diet change, just the vinegar/water/aguave mix. This morning I was at 203.4 lbs.

That's 15.6 lbs! lost

But... side effects are ... super thirsty, I crave cold drinks, especially water and apple juice.

I drink at least a gallon a day of water, which make me get tired of reading bathroom walls, but hey, I'll take it all for this much weight loss without starvation. Just got to pee a lot!!

After hearing positive comments, I decided to try this to myself. I'm 25 yrs old , 5'2 and I weigh 145 lbs. . I hope this will work for me.

I was just confused, can I take the acv with water all throughout the day? If so, how many ounces of this should be taken? I drink water a lot. Would it be okay to add acv on it? Please help.

Apple Cider Vinegar
by: Twinkle Toes

Any type of Apple Cider Vinegar is better than none and that includes the pill form of this. It tends to make the cells more alkaline and able to shed their waste build up. The goal is to get the body working well and the over all metabolism to function better and less sluggishly.

Drinking water is also a very good idea. Raw fruits and veggies are always a good addition. Watch out for too much dairy products. The bread I try and eat is sprouted grain bread.

I was low on money for a while and had to just do the best I could and shop sells. I found a food bank that gives free produce to people. That was nice. If there is a way of having your own organic garden, that is the very best.

Hope that helps.

Using apple cider vinegar to loose weight
by: gdg

Hi girls out there!

I am here to tell you that it is possible to loose 5lbs in one week using the apple cider vinegar.

My weight loss also came along with moderate exercise and eating lots of fruits and drinking plenty of water, like 6 to 8 bottles per day.

I find it hard to make myself eat rite sometimes, so usually I get my grapes, peaches, apples, strawberries and kiwi from the fruit market and pre-bag them off so that it is convenient for me to go in the frig and grab a bag instead of grabbing something that I don't need (something that the rest of my family would eat, cause they aren't in need of weight loss like me).

So just ten minutes of exercise per day for me, eating grilled fish, turkey salads, green salads, fruits and staying away from alcohol drinks during the week and on the weekend I may have one or two no more has tremendously help me and I can see a major difference in my body.

I feel better and my feet have never been free of swelling like this in a long time...

Excited to see ACV benefits
by: radostal

I am 28yrs old have gained 20 lbs over the course of a year, have major stomach problems, lack of energy, sleep at least 12 hours a day, and have been struggling with UTI's for many years even after extensive testing doc's were unable to help me.

I called my mother yesterday to complain like daughters do and she proceeded to tell me she has been taking ACV for several months now.

Thyroid problems and Migraines run in our family and she has battled with her weight since before I was born and I have terrible memories of her blacking out from the worst headaches. She has seen significant changes in her weight and no longer worries about being bed ridden from migraines.

To say the least she told me to get my butt to the store asap and start taking ACV. I couldn't stop thinking about it all night and this morning I found this website. Everyone's stories are so inspiring and I can't wait to share my success story with you all as well.

Congrats to everyone and wish me luck!

About Peeing Alot
by: Twinkle-toes

That is great that your kidneys are flushing, the benefit of that is really good. You are loosing water weight right now, and that is toxic waste that was hanging around.

Keep on trucking with the ACV and drink lots of water too.

You might need more fish or protein if you are getting hungry at night.

Started 2 weeks ago.
by: Anonymous

When I first started about 2 weeks ago,
it really made me pee a lot, and it cut down my cravings, but now I don't pee as much and I crave late at night. Is that normal?

I haven't weighed myself because I'm waiting for the 1 month mark, so I don't know if I've lost any weight. I don't see any difference but I'm hoping I'm wrong.

Started tonight!
by: Jane

After struggling to get my weight down - I'm not grossly overweight, but have a large spare tyre round my waist and my work as a life model won't countenance that really -

I have been trying to change my diet, drink lots more water, do yoga and plenty of walking as well as a physically strenuous job one day a week and saw the predictable weight loss of a few pounds during the first week but for the last two months am just stuck at a certain weight.

Took 2 tablespoons in water for the first time this evening and maybe its my imagination but I feel better already! Time will tell, of course.

Love reading all your comments folks.
I weigh myself once a week at the chemist on their 'scientific' scales which are very accurate so will keep you posted!
Good luck everyone.

The first week
by: Twinkle Toes

Most people add a Tablespoon of ACV to water or shoot it chased by water, 1/2 hour before they eat three times a day.
Water is a must. Even if they do not change any other life style patterns, like exercising more or eating less food in less quantities, they will see a loss of water weight the first week. They will continue to lose weight more slowly the weeks following. It depends on the person.

After the first week, if there is a good deal of weight to lose still, I recommend the book, The Belly Fat Cure by Jorge Cruise. Walking and swimming are good for the heart and circulation too.

I hoped that helped. There is also a great book
Called "Ask and it is Given" by Abraham-Hicks

That book talks about being happy as a way to permanent weight loss. Many people eat out of boredom, depression, or other emotional reasons. It seems odd, but developing a happy outlook might be exactly what helps in the long run.

Good luck with it.

Proucts that might help
by: Twinkle Toes

Yes there is a good ACV capsule. Made by Nutraceutical, Apple Cider Vinegar Extract. Taking two would probably be just about right. I like them for when I am on the road. When traveling it is not always possible to do the real deal. The website is www.go nsl.com.

Another really helpful supplement is Isagenix brand Natural accelerator. I have a hard time waking up sometimes and having energy. It has a blend of ACV and green tea and cayenne pepper and other stuff. I like it because in about 1/2 hour I feel like I am fully awake but not jittery like caffeine does. There is no bad side effect. It just feel good constant energy.

I also recommend a Youngevity product that has every thing in it. I mean plant derived minerals and a full spectrum of vitamins. It is a powder that reminds me of "Tang" that you mix in water and drink. It is called: Tangy Tangerine Mix. Great stuff. Even if we don't eat right you get all you need in the way of vitamins and minerals.

Hope that helps.

by: jen

OK, so I already eat healthy for the most part (occasional cakes on birthday and such though lol) and I exercise daily.
But I want to loose 5 lbs and hoped ACV would speed it up.

But let me say, that stuff is SO NASTY! I almost threw up taking it. And I'm concerned of it burning my throat or damaging my teeth, even mixed in water.
I'm considering the pills, I know they say be careful of the brand to buy because some aren't exactly ACV.

So I was wondering has anyone tried using the pills, and did it work for you? also what brand did you buy? thanks :)

In response to the last posting
by: Twinkle Toes

I think eating only Oatmeal is not good. I think in time you will tire of it. Any Apple Cider Vinegar is preferable to none.

I honestly thing one great benefit is that ACV allows our cells to absorb more water because the body becomes more alkaline right after drinking it.

Some people want quick results...I think it is better to take it once a day, morning, or evening and then forget about it. Over the months, slowly your total health will improve and your metabolism will improve and that gives you more lasting results anyway.

I purchased a book called" The Belly Fat Cure, by Jorge Cruise.

It is about reducing sugar, even in fruit juice and eating more complex carbs,

For the first time, I think I am seeing a big change.

I have tried so many things. Clearly it is a combination of healthy life style changes that will result in a better you.

ACV is not like a magic pill. But it helps.

Then I came across ACV diet while surfing the net? I?m on it right now.. But I?m using Heinz. Is that ok? Can?t find Bragg?s here. Btw I?m from Philippines.

Good for you determined
by: Twinkle Toes

I always think it is so wonderful when people have lost successfully.

At the moment I am experiencing a set back. We all got the flu, lost some with that then gained the sick weight back.

Life will do that sometimes. I am getting determined to try it all again. Start over.

Another thing is I have been exercising at a gym and think that muscle weight is causing some temporary increase.

So, Determined, how did you lose the 40 pounds?

It is great to hear how others have managed it.

Food choices changed
by: Twinkle Toes

It has been about two months now. I think I am on my second big bottle of Braggs unfiltered ACV.
I went out to dinner last night. My son and I decided to split a desert. But honestly, I only ate a bit or two. The food I desire is different. Less sugar I think. When people are joining a diet, they are thinking I can't eat this or that and feel deprived. I decided this time that if I really want something, at least in moderation, I am going to eat it. I also want to walk more and go to the gym more. Been sick lately, with bronchitis so no, I am not getting there. The nice thing is the ACV is slowly changing my cravings and choices. Maybe the research is right; that women who do not change one thing about their diet (consciously) seem to loose about 20 pounds a year. Maybe they just start to make some better choices and not crave the wrong things as much. Just a thought worth pondering. I think ACV works on many levels.

I have said before, I need my own page. I enjoy blogging about my progress, honestly.

I am 57. Have quite a bit to loose and seem to have tried about every weight loss therapy. This is slow but steady and it just has me hooked.

Until next time...Twinkle Toes

Observations
by: Twinkle Toes

Well, not too much weight loss but, I quit smoking recently.

Did the ACV help? Maybe.

The break down looks like this: Quit smoking, got a cold that moved into my lungs and severe bronchitis. It was very productive. Mucus. Lots of it. Could the ACV have helped clean up my lungs in such an extraordinary way? Then the other end. History of bladder problems which I read can be caused by smoking. The relationship is unclear to me between nicotine and the bladder but it exists. Urine collection seems to be improved with my body. That means I am eliminating more toxins via urine out of me. That is good.

All of this is moving me closer to a healthier me. It would be nice to see the scale move down faster, but, being healthier, and more energetic is very important.

My lungs should be able to take in more oxygen and then that should up my metabolism just a bit.
I will let you know.

Hi I read somewhere that ACV was good for weight loss so I thought I would give it a try.

I started yesterday but this morning when I woke up I had so much energy. I cleaned my entire house and wasn't even tired, before I would be tired just doing half.

I also got to sleep really well last night, I haven't done that in a long time, I have problems falling asleep but last night fell asleep right away.

So far, I'm loving the benefits. I will see in a week how much weight I have lost and also add some exercise too to help.

Wish me luck

Just started...
by: Tsuki

Well, I have just started my routine of drinking ACV. I have bought 1 big bottle of ACV last year and I used it to make some mask for my face but I just gotten lazy and so the entire bottle is left in my fridge untouched.

But I have heard of ACV weight loss and thought of trying it. At the same time, that bottle left in my fridge will not go wasted.

So, basically I have just started taking it 3 days ago. I don't feel any difference yet but I will religiously taking it everyday until that entire bottle has finished.

Right now, I am taking 4 tablespoons per day. 1 mix 2 tablespoons of ACV diluted with 1 cup of water plus 2 tablespoons of raw honey. Tastes like apple juice to me. haha! I take it about an hour after meal. I read this page saying that it should be taken before meal but I guess taking a glass of plain water itself is able to suppress appetite before meal. I realized by taking it an hour after meal, I feel that my stomach "emptied" pretty fast. Means I feel as if I am hungry or something but I didn't eat after that. I am taking it after lunch and before going to bed.

I don't know... Perhaps I should start trying to take it before meal instead.

I have also been exercising twice a day, I run about 1.5 to 2 miles at a moderate pace, and in between your run do short but explosive exercise, then work on your core strength with 30 second interval.

Also if you feel the need, stretch your muscles if they feel tight. Then finish it off with 15 to 20 min rest in the sauna. That so far has been my routine.

Remember outdoor running is better then indoor.

Keep you all posted.

Welcome to Devil Dawg, Joann and Bishi
by: Twinkle Toes

I keep watching this thread, and I am curious about how all of you are doing. Please keep us up to date. Went to Phoenix last week and was off the "juice" for about 4 days. Since I left in a rain/snow/sleet storm I forgot some things. I was just anxious to get to the valley.

It has been a month since beginning this program and I can say that over all I pee more. I do believe water weight is starting to come off.

Like Devil Dawg says exercise and other life style changes can help. Those are going to be added this month.

My main focus was just developing a "habit" last month. If you do something for 21 days, it starts to become a habit.

Thanks for your input. I think I am going to start a twinkle toes page.

Cheers.

About to do it.
by: Devil Dawg

The thought of ACV never crossed my mind until a friend of mines tried it when he went home for vacation. Now every comment that I am reading is so far true. He was also feeling the same way. Now that I have read your comments and seen what you have experienced, that makes me want to try it even more. But for the rest, just ACV alone is not enough to get in shape. Exercising is the true key.
Adding ACV is just a plus. Remember 30 minutes a day is all you need. But don't half ACV, cause you'll be just cheating yourself.

Good luck!

I did weight today
by: Twinkle Toes

It has been a few weeks now. Maybe I am a few pounds lighter, I did actually weigh today. The Holidays usually result in about a 10 pound gain, but, I think I have lost 2 pounds in the last month without changing my diet at all.

The thing that I notice is better digestion and it just feels like junk is getting removed from my intestines.

There is less bloating around my middle section.

I think I will need to work a little harder to see more weight loss. But, I am encouraged already and feel better.

My way of taking ACV
by: Twinkle Toes

I just wanted to add, that my son also has a weight problem. He adds a tablespoon of ACV and honey to warm water. I can't do it that way. I shoot a tablespoon at a time, several times a day and before going to bed at night. That means, I pour a tablespoon of regular store bought...ACV into a shot glass and down it. Then I chase it with a glass of water.

I have noticed that some people like to put it in tomatoe or V8 juice. I say whatever works. Also there are ACV capsules available. I have some of those too. The capsules are nice if you are on the go..you can put them in a pill box and take them. When I am home I just take the real thing.

I also believe that the water is a key element in this process. I am going to be shopping the local health food store for unfiltered raw ACV in the near future. I am seeing results with the regular cheap stuff right now.

I hope that helps and I will continue to update. Good luck and please comment.

Good Results
by: Twinkle Toes

My clothes are looser. The amazing thing is my stomach just feels better, flatter. I can feel the puffiness going down in my face and stomach. I have been doing this about a week, I can't wait to actually weigh.

It really does work!
by: Amri

I started 4 days ago with the acv.

I didn't know much about it till I went to the grocery store to buy salad dressing and seen that and wanted to actually try it out so the first thing I did I googled to see if it's good or not.

I started drinking 2 times a day acv when in the afternoon and late at night. I've lost 3 pounds in 4 days. I drink only water & eat fruits more.

I'm down to 130, now my goal is 120 or 115. I know by using this it will really help me, goodluck to everyone :)

Loving my body more
by: Twinkle Toes

I am having results now, after about a week. I only weigh once a month.

Don't just focus on pounds and weight loss. Oddly I started with the Abraham Hicks DVD, Think and grow thin. My food problems tend to be emotional eating. They say the most important place to start is with self love and appreciation. Get Happy, anyway you can and there will be a bounce in your step.

Find a purpose for your life. In other words, some people are couch potatoes moping around the house. That can't be good. Do things you enjoy, like walk with a friend, get an ipod and dance around the house etc. Make a salad dressing out of ACV and olive oil and seasonings...homemade is best. Add it to tomatoe juice and chase with another glass of ice water.

I am more vegetarian now too. I eat kinder for all living things have consciousness. Look pretty no matter how much you weigh...take time to groom and look attractive. I add vitamins and minerals to my own life...it really helps my overall well being.

Edgar Cayce said the ACV makes the body more alkaline, even though it is acidic. He also recommends adding lemon juice to things and drinking a small amount of no sugar added grape juice before each meal. Get a pretty wine glass, fill it with grape juice and water and sip it while cooking. Now that is the appetite suppressant that works for me.

If people aren't seeing immediate results it might be for other reasons. Some of us are water retainers and will shed a great deal in the beginning, some won't. I would look at the many benefits of what you are doing and if you must add a bit more exercise to see greater weight loss then do so and watch out for dairy and white flour products. Those are my two problem children. Use moderation with sugar too.

I will be back next month to update. Feel better, don't worry, be happy.

Just Starting Out...
by: AnnaME

When your 80 year old family starts to extol the virtues of ACV then you KNOW that you have to pick some up too. He was recommending it for my insomnia, but I'm much more turned on for its weight loss properties.

But just a couple of questions...

Hubby and I are going to try it as a half and half shot (1 tbsp ACV with V-Go:seasoned V8) before dinner. I'll probably try for 3 times a day though as I'm around home.

I was reading that most people are trying 2 tbsps though... what do you think?

And are you just using plain old grocery store ACV, or do you pick up something fancier at the health food store?

Please advise when you can.
Thanks bunches.

I'm trying it - I'll follow up with you
by: Mememe

I'm just adding a twist to it and having a "shot glass" of apple cider vinegar before an 8 oz glass of water , and that's before every meal.

Also trying to blend a variety of info I have compiled into a meal plan ..... I hope to lower my fat intake , lower my sodium intake , cleanse my system , and lose weight in the process.

Final results I hope for are weight loss , lower blood pressure and less water retention and the ability to endure healthy exercise ! wish me luck and I will definitely keep everyone posted .
