I Lost Weight Without Trying - Using ACV

by Marion Smith

French translation
I have had a lifelong battle with my weight.

I could never control the inevitable gradual gain of weight over the years. When I felt disgusted enough, I would crash diet and lose anywhere from 10 - 50 pounds until my will power gave out and the process would start all over again.

As I've gotten older, the only thing I've tried to do is to cut out desserts, but even that has been difficult, and the weight would come on even without the desserts.

About 3 months ago, I began taking 2 tablespoons of ACV daily - one first thing in the morning and the other before I went to bed.
I did not start it to lose weight but as a means of trying to boost my immune system to ward off colds and infections.

I had heard of using it for weight loss but was extremely skeptical. After about 7 weeks, people began commenting that I was losing weight. I still didn't believe it. I have no scales at home, so I do not weigh on a regular basis.

Nonetheless, it dawned on me over the last 2 days just how true it is! To my amazement, I tried on several pairs of old, tight trousers, and they are now becoming loose and floppy.

There is no doubt about it, and I have a theory. Somehow, the ACV puts the body into ketosis and burns fat. I suspect this because when I've been in ketosis before, I could always smell a kind of sweet smell, and I had noticed this several times over the past few weeks prior to really noticing the weight loss.

This is a totally unsolicited testimonial which was voluntarily made after stumbling onto this website.

Just a comment on the labeling
by: kneedragger

The ACV from the Trader Joe store looked good until I got it home. It states in big letters it is unfiltered, but in small letters it shows to be pasteurized. The pasteurization will kill mother.

Instant Energy and weightloss
by: Anonymous

I started drinking 2 tablespoons a day after reading that Fergie drinks this to stay slim. I tried it and can honestly say it is natures little wonder.

The second after I drink ACV, I feel revitalized and energetic. I do not crave food and feel like my metabolism is revved up. Also, my medication gives me horrible constipation, and when I drink ACV, I am instantly regular again...which could have to do with the rate of metabolism.

I have lost 5 pounds in a week...probaley just water and cleansing, but at this rate it will fall off!!

Type of ACV to purchase
by: Anonymous

Please make sure it is all natural RAW unfiltered "with the mother". I buy it from natural food stores, or a co-op, Trader Joes, etc.

Please don't buy a cooking brand like Hienz, it doesn't carry any of the natural benefits.

Any brand of organic ACV
by: Mary W.

It can be any brand of organic apple cider vinegar, as I understand it. Bragg's is good, as it contains the "mother" (a live culture that helps turn wine or cider into vinegar.)

But there may be other local organic brands that have the "mother", too. Ask around at a health food store in your town.

As long as it's not a chain store brand or one of the big brands, like Heinz. Heinz tastes really good (I'm one of those weirdos who like the taste of vinegar) and I use it in cooking and pickling, but it's too processed and sterilized to have the same health effect on the body as one of the unfiltered organic brands with the "mother" in it.

Thank you so much for sharing your story in this page.

I've battled with my weight pretty much my whole life too. It doesn't even help that I have a very thin sister, who's always glamorous with her slim body, perfect hair, and trendy clothes.

I've been reading up on the acv diet for days now and plan on starting this next week. Does it have to be bragg brand of acv or will any acv brand be just as effective? Please help.

I'm very determined to lose 80 pounds this summer. Thank you for taking the time to help me out.
