How ACV helped me to shed excess weight

by Karen

French translation

I didn't believe it and still don't know what is actually happening, but I lost 10 lbs the first week.

I quit using ACV at the end of the week because I got sick. Just in case it was caused by ACV and because I could not stomach it while sick, I quit.

My stomach is better so I am trying it again. After 1 day, I have lost 1/2 pound. I have no stomach issues at all so far.

ACV broke the plateau I was on, after 3 weeks of dieting and no weight loss. I thought it was just water weight, but after weeks of not using it, I have still maintained most of the loss. (still dieting).

I don't lose weight easily; so, this boost was a welcome one. I exercise and am trying a low fat diet. So far, it has helped.

I don't think it was a coincidence that both times I started ACV, the weight loss was immediate.

Amazing weight loss results for me with ACV
by: Anonymous (NSW, Australia)

I was overweight in school. When I was just out of high school and freshly 18, I broke my neck and the surgeon told me if I didn't loose weight I'd never walk again and recommended Apple Cider Vinegar.

I lost 35 kgs in 8 months. It has made such a massive difference to my life and I swear to ACV now.

It's the high fiber in ACV
by: melizzamelizza

Your stomach is aching due to the fiber content folks. Drink lots of water to combat it.
Your system is like a toilet flushing without water...give it water.

Remember the product is from apples and apples have fiber. Has anyone noticed their bowl movements increased?

Too much ACV?
by: Anonymous

Acv shouldn't be taken in doses as high as one-two tablespoons per glass of water, three times a day. This most likely will cause your stomach some pain. A better dosage is one teaspoon per glass(250 ml).

I've been exercising and trying to eat better to lose weight. Regularly, which is not giving the results I'd like :/

I'm gonna start this in the morning and see if it changes anything.

You rock, keep it up :)

Hi, Karen! Thanks for sharing your story.

I am about to start the ACV "diet". A couple in our church said they mix 2 TBSP of Honey & 1 TBSP of ACV to a cup of water. They drink this twice daily and swear to its weight loss benefits.

My question to you is how do you take this? Do you mix it with water? Do you include honey?

I look forward to hearing back from you!

Would you dilute ACV with water or how do you use it to shed weight?

Congratulations Karen! I too found that taking ACV after meals not only was easier on my stomach, but I saw an increase of weight loss and a decrease of my stomach faster than when I took prior to eating.

I guess it's all about experimenting and seeing what works best for your own body!

Good luck to you and keep us updated on your progress. :)

ACV to lose weight continued
by: Karen

After my stomach got better I tried it again and my stomach got worse. I recommend eating before taking the ACV. It's really acidic.
