How I'm using ACV to loose weight

by Kerry Borth
(Dalhart , TX)

French translation

I started out at a huge 190 lbs which is way more than my frame and knees could handle.

In just over a month I have lost 20 lbs. I crave my vinegar. I use it straight (never watered down) on lettuce by itself or on salads for salad dressing without the oil. I love to slice up cucumbers and pour vinegar over them and let them sit for a while then eat them straight out of the bowl.

I made a soup with cabbage, potatoes, onions and Kielbaska sausage that is very yummy. Then I have to have vinegar on it. I had probably 4-5 bowls of it the first day (thru' out the day). It was very cleansing also (if you know what I mean :). I think that's what jump started my weight loss.

I also steam a package of the cauliflower, broccoli, carrot combo and put the vinegar on them to eat.

Now that my daughter has gotten me on the Atkins diet, I leave out the potatoes of the soup. But the best part is I have cut out carbs. No sodas, no sugars etc. I have found the Atkins shake drinks-choc, vanilla and strawberry. The strawberry does taste like a shake. They help keep my blood sugar on more of a level keel instead of the highs and lows swing that all my sweets loving days did.

But I still have my vinegar. I keep thinking of foods that I can put it on. When I was a kid I loved to just take a swig of vinegar from the jug, so I have loved the ACV for a long time. So getting reacquainted with it isn't a problem. In fact just thinking about it makes my mouth start to water. My daughter will walk into the room and go "whooo I smell your vinegar!".

I’m so happy to be able to 'shop' in my closet and be able to wear clothes that I haven't been able to wear in a long time. It really is a sin to have good clothes hanging there and not be able to wear them because I have let stress of a mother-in-law living with us make me want to reach for the sweets to eat or the 'can't sleep so do the midnight snack attack'. But I don't do that anymore because when you see the results happening to you, you want to to keep on making it happen. It's so nice to hear-"gee is that a new dress?" "No it's been in my closet for a long time and I can NOW get back into it."

Hope you try this and have the results I have had. I have too many before pictures but when I have an after picture I'll post the 2 together. :)

Did I mention that this year I will be 60?
That's hard to get my mind around but the way I was headed-the next years were going to be very hard to manage.
Getting a handle on my weight now hopefully will help me get thru' them easier and enjoy them more.

@ Kerry I loved your story, I was very inspired.

I too have a closet full of lovely clothes, some not worn. I have reached the weight that sounds off an alarm for me. I had ACV today, as well as cut back on carb intake, I intend to start walking 3 miles a day beginning in the morning.

Hope it all works for me I'm looking to lose about 20lbs by Xmas.

Day 1 ACV tablets
by: wantabehealthyweight

Today is day one for my ACV Diet.

I am currently obese at 185 lb and 5?1?? tall only 25 years old. Started to eat healthier starting in February when I reached 200 lbs. I was getting frustrated when I stopped losing weight last month.

I had taken this same diet in high school and it got me to my weight. I want to do it again. I will keep you posted.

Just starting out
by: Mommy585

I am just starting out, day three, and already I don't mind the strong taste.

I went to a health food store and bought a big bottle not knowing about all the other benefits but now even if I don't have weight loss I think I will continue with it for the other benefits.

I am looking forward to seeing what changes will happen. I am 32 next week and I am sick of the weight and soreness in my body from it.

I am excited to think that instead of diet pills I can do this naturally and much less expensive.

I will post results as I see them myself.

It's working!!!
by: wendie

I also am going to be 50 this year, that must be the magic number. I love my carbs., and look like.

I started this week drinking ACV. It is true what the other people are writing. It has stopped my cravings for carbs. Before, I was always hungry, now I'm not.

We will see what next week brings. I'll keep in touch. Thanks

Hoping that this will work since everything else has failed
by: R

I am 28 and going to get married in 4 months time and I'm terribly overweight.

I am getting panick attacks now and don't know what to do about the excess weight on my tummy, hips, thighs, arms.

I have started taking ACV from today but I'm not sure if it will really work. I am very nervous.

ACV new to me
by: Debra

Hey guys, Thanks for the encouragement. I'm also going to be 50 this year. I've made some serious life changes. I've decided to get my degree on-line. And seriously need to loose some weight.

SO, for myself first, I'm gonna go get me some good quality ACV from the health food store first thing am.

My son and I also suffer from acid reflux and both of us are very much looking forward to ditching our Nexium pills.

I'll let you know how the weight loss goes

ACV helps older people loose weight too
by: Tammy

Thank you for your testimonial. I feel there is hope.

I found out about ACV just today.
I am going to be 50 soon. Had never had weight problems. But since I had a hysterectomy last Dec. I have gained 20 pounds. And I am not liking it.

I hear it is harder to loose weight when you get older.

Kudos to you, and good luck.
