Only 1 pound lost after taking ACV for 4 weeks

French translation

I have beent taking 2tbsp of ACV three times a day for the past four weeks. I have lost inches around my midsection but not much actual weight loss (approximately 1 pound).

I’m not sure if the inches lost are due to ACV or my new workout regimen but I am currently between dress sizes and on my way down from a size 16 to a size 14.

I know the way ACV works in the body is similar to the way the body responds to high levels of glucose in people with diabetes. The increased blood sugars cause a metabolic response to makes the body burn fat. Rapid weight loss is often seen in people who are newly diagnosed with diabetes.

My husband has uncontrolled diabetes and has to switch medicines frequently because his blood sugars are not responding to the meds. When his sugars are really high he drops 20-30 within weeks.

Since I am also diabetic, I may already be predisposed to these metabolic changes which may be why my body is not responding (as fast) to the ACV.

Just a thought... any suggestions?

A possible solution if you stop losing weight with ACV
by: Anonymous

If you don't exercise much and during your weight loss phase with ACV and limited exercise.

You could stop the ACV for awhile, eat protein such as neat and increase your exercise. Drink plenty of water.

You could also keep taking ACV, but exercise or increase your exercise level. You may begin to build muscle and burn fat. Muscle also weighs more than fat.

Stopped loosing weight with ACV.
by: Alfiya (Ontario, Canada)

I have been taking ACV for 2 weeks today. I was 85 kilo when I started, now I am 82 kilo and I stopped loosing any more weight.

I don't know what am I doing wrong.

I started taking one teaspoon with mango juice 3 times a day now I'm taking 1 tablespoon 3 times a day.

I eat healthy and I don't eat anything after 5 pm.

Please help, why am I not able to loose more.
Thank you.
