How Apple Cider Vinegar can help you shed excess Body fat

Apple cider vinegar is one of the few weight loss remedies that comes with an instA glass of apple cider vinegar next to apple slicesruction manual because as effective as it is, one has to learn the proper ways to take it.

 

With decades of use, research into the health-giving tonic has found it to be an especially powerful blood sugar regulator.

Apple cider vinegar has also been used previously to remedy simple conditions such as yellowed teeth, dandruff and even to eradicate hiccups.

Regardless of how much of this is true, plenty of research into the near-miraculous remedy has already been conducted, and the results are nothing short of promising.

Apple Cider Vinegar Could Be Instrumental in Weight Loss

With millions of “miraculous” weight loss solutions available on the market, apple cider vinegar has lived in their shadow for decades.

However, according to a study that was published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, apple cider vinegar has a significant role to play when it comes to regulating the accumulation of body fat.

In the study, a group of mice was fed a high-fat diet. A small portion of that group was given acetic acid alongside their diets while the other portion was not.

The results showed that the mice that were given acetic acid had 10 percent less body fat than the other mice.

How is it possible that acetic acid prevents weight gain?

The researchers who conducted the study concluded that the acetic acid, vinegar’s main component, improves the work rate of genes that are responsible for the production of fast-breaking enzymes, thereby preventing weight gain to some degree.

For more conclusive findings, a slightly similar study was conducted, this time on humans. Japanese scientists carried out what is called a double-blind trial on obese adults in 2009. The trial subjects all had similar waist measurements and body weights.

After dividing them into three groups, the scientists gave each group a different beverage for 12 weeks. The first group drank a beverage that had half an ounce of apple cider vinegar, the second group’s beverage had an ounce of apple cider vinegar, and the third group’s beverage did not contain any apple cider vinegar.

When the study came to an end, the groups whose beverages contained apple cider vinegar displayed lower BMIs and body weight, lower triglycerides and belly fat, and lower waist measurements. The group that consumed the beverage with no vinegar showed no positive change whatsoever.

Miracle Elixir is also great for Digestive Health

Clearly, apple cider vinegar is a winner when it comes to keeping body fat in check, based on the two studies. However, the miracle elixir has also proved to be very important when it comes to digestive health.

To that effect, a study was conducted on rodents with ulcerative colitis. At the end of it, it was found that small amounts of acetic acid added to water resulted in good digestive health and an abundance of good bacteria such as Lactobacillus in the stomach. Furthermore, apple cider vinegar reduced the symptoms of gastrointestinal disease dramatically.

The Not-So-Good Side Effects of Apple Cider Vinegar

Before you rush home to treat yourself to a stiff shot of vinegar, here are a few things you should know:

· Apple cider vinegar should never be consumed straight. Not only will it taste horrible, it is also known to wear down the enamel of the tooth and to burn the lining of the esophagus.

· Drink apple cider vinegar with moderation. Too much of it will result in the drastic lowering of potassium levels within your body.

· Drinking apple cider vinegar on a regular basis will not cancel out the effects of overeating. Think of it as a useful part of the solution to your weight gain problems, not the entire remedy.

Consuming Apple Cider Vinegar

Experts recommend that you mix the vinegar with some honey and warm water in a cup once a day. But because this is the simplest recipe out there, there are still a lot of ways you can get your daily intake of the healthy vinegar.

For instance, most people prefer to drizzle it on their salad as a component of their salad dressing. Recipes are in abundance on the internet so you will be spoilt for choice. You can also go for coleslaw with a touch of the vinegar or even drizzle it on fresh, leafy vegetables to give them that extra zing.

What matters is that you consume apple cider vinegar the right way. It might take a while but it will have an impact on your weight gain problems.

 

How To Lose Weight Without Dieting – The Mystical Unicorn

If you knew how to lose weight without dieting, I bet your life would be a tad bit easier.

You’d be less stressed, happier, and probably a little more confident in yourself.

After all, dieting is the hardest part about losing weight…

Right?

I’m here to argue it’s not.

Not only is it not hard, I’m here to convince you it’s actually the easiest part.

Contrary to popular belief, learning how to lose weight without dieting is possible.

You just have to change your perspective a bit…

Let’s begin, shall we?

How To Lose Weight Without Dieting

Every day you turn on the TV or go on Facebook and someone else has a new magic, miracle cure for weight loss.

In fact, one of the newer and dumber ones I’ve seen just received a ton of publicity.

It’s called The Taco Diet. See for yourself:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCKDvIcVK_I

This could be the DUMBEST, STUPIDEST, MOST IDIOTIC thing I’ve seen in a long time.

If you ask me to explain why it’s as moronic as I say it is, then my site and teaching probably isn’t for you.

Any weight loss plan that is structured around only eating 1 food to “detoxify your body” is so beyond nutritional science that I’m not going to waste my breath.

Now that the rant is over, let’s talk about the safe way to lose weight without dieting.

You see, “dieting” implies a temporary fix.

When you “diet,” it’s usually for a set period of time for a certain event.

You may want to “diet” for your wedding, for swimsuit season, or for a 10 year family reunion.

Whatever it is, as soon as that event finishes or the scale reads a certain number, the “diet” is over.

Shortly thereafter, you gain the weight back and start the “diet” all over.

So how do you lose weight without dieting?

Change the word 🙂

Yep. Stop using the gosh forsaken word.

In order to lose weight without dieting, you have to change your habits and your lifestyle.

I get it. Dieting isn’t fun. It’s boring, restrictive, and an overall pain in the ass.

Why do you think even competitive bodybuilders and figure models binge after a show?

That being said, don’t think there is something magic about ANYTHING you see from here on out.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT A NEGATIVE CALORIE BALANCE.

What’s that, you say?

How To Lose Weight Without Dieting: Calorie Balance

No amount of vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, paleo, Twinkies, tacos, or girl scout cookie diets are going to work unless you eat less calories than you burn.

End. Of. Story.

Seriously. Magic is gone.

What does that mean?

It means that, luckily for you, there are 2 sides to that equation.

Calories in > calories out = weight gain

Calories in < calories out = weight loss

Are all calories created the same? Not on your life.

However, the #1 most important factor is to control your energy balance.

One of my mentors, Dr. John Berardi of Precision Nutrition, calls it “G-Flux.”

The long and the short of it is that you can control either how many calories you take in or burn more calories throughout the day.

If you’re like me and enjoy pizza, beer, and Dairy Queen, then you’ll have to burn more calories.

If you want to know how to lose weight without dieting, this is your 1st answer.

Burn. More. Calories.

Done. That’s the magic.

You can do more intense training, workout more days per week, workout more times per day, or whatever your little heart desires.

The possibilities are endless.

Now let’s say you don’t have the time or knowledge to workout more or more intensely.

Well, sorry to break it to you, but you’ll have to work on the other side of that wonderful equation.

Eat. Less Calories.

Do you have to “diet” to do this?

Nope. Not at all.

The simplest way for you to do this, especially if you’re just starting out, is to change a SINGLE habit of yours.

Let’s take Stacy for example.

Stacy is a single mom with 2 kids so it’s very difficult for her to cook separate meals for her and for her boys.

So how does Stacy eat less calories without dieting.

Let’s look at dinner, shall we?

Stacy cooks chicken, mashed potatoes, and green beans for her boys.

Stacy likes gravy on her mashed potatoes because Stacy is normal and normal people like gravy on their mashed potatoes 🙂

*P.S. If you don’t like gravy on your mashed potatoes, we can still be friends. I just think you’re weird*

Stacy has 2 easy, simple choices.

She can either:

  1. Not eat the gravy, or
  2. Eat half the potatoes and gravy she normally would eat.

See? Was that so hard?

If she did that every night, Stacy would cut out hundreds, if not thousands of calories each week.

Almost on accident, Stacy learned how to lose weight without dieting just by changing ONE thing she did.

Then, after that stops working, Stacy can add in something new.

Seriously guys…

That’s the secret.

Nothing else.

Don’t make it harder or more “mystical” then it needs to be.
