Many people would like to get rid of a few pounds and lose weight permanently. This is most of the time, however, easier said than done. Even though we set good intentions, there’s always an excuse for not turning them into reality.
Thus, many swear by aids such as apple cider vinegar for weight loss, which has been used for centuries for various health-promoting purposes. How can you lose weight with apple cider vinegar, though? Here, I want to share with you three ways in which you can lose weight with apple cider vinegar (ACV).
What Effects has Apple Cider Vinegar?
Apple cider vinegar can be a great help in losing weight. The fruity vinegar, however, cannot perform weight loss miracles alone either. It is always important to include and maintain a generally healthy lifestyle, such as:
– Being more Active.
– Eating a Balanced Diet
– Avoiding harmful influences such as alcohol, nicotine, and unhealthy foods
If you follow this, apple cider vinegar can lead you to success on your journey, because of its many properties that can promote a fast and balanced weight loss.
Let me give you some examples of this:
Apple cider vinegar stimulates the metabolism, which burns fat faster and also already accumulated fat deposits disappear faster.
Apple cider vinegar has a positive effect on your digestion by regulating gastric acid production and killing harmful bacteria in the gut.
Apple cider vinegar has an appetite suppressant effect. If you drink a glass of diluted ACV before eating, the existing apple pectin, a liquid fiber, swells up and causes calming satiety in your stomach.
Apple cider vinegar is very low in calories and, therefore, hardly matters in a diet plan. But, it contains comparatively many nutrients, e.g. B vitamins, beta carotene, potassium, magnesium, and sulfur.
Apple cider vinegar can bring forth many positive effects that contribute to weight loss. Nevertheless, how exactly can you lose weight with apple cider vinegar? I will give you some tips on how to use apple cider vinegar to reach your ideal body-weight.
There are basically three ways to lose weight with apple cider vinegar; mostly connected and in combination with drinking diluted apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar should never be taken undiluted, as acetic acid may have a negative effect on your health; it may irritate the stomach and esophagus unnecessarily.
That’s why you should always dilute apple cider vinegar. As a rule of thumb, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a commercial glass of water (7 oz to 10 oz) and drink it.
In general, it is also possible to dilute the cider vinegar with other drinks such as fruit juices or to add sweeteners such as honey to soften the taste. When losing weight, however, you have to keep in mind that the added honey, for example, does increase the calorie intake significantly.
It is also possible to take apple cider vinegar capsules. These are high-dose capsules which you can take with a glass of water.
You should not take too many of these capsules, however, because this, in turn, can upset your stomach. So, if you are taking a lot of apple cider vinegar to lose weight, you should always drink it diluted.
Apple Cider Vinegar as a Food Supplement
Apple cider vinegar can also be used without a nutrition plan for a healthy diet. Here, the rapid weight loss is more in the background, but this form of nourishment is suitable for keeping a certain weight steadily. Especially after a diet, apple cider vinegar can help to prevent a yo-yo effect.
It’s best if your making apple cider vinegar a part of your daily diet. So, you eat what you normally eat and use apple cider vinegar to drink or as a food supplement.
Thus, your metabolism can be permanently activated and increased, and your unwanted appetite feeling will be reduced. Some application examples:
You can drink a glass of water with 2 to 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in the morning after getting up to boost your metabolism.
There are so many health benefits to ACV. You can drink slightly diluted apple cider vinegar before each meal to curb your appetite and eat less frequently, for example.
You can use apple cider vinegar as a natural spice, e.g. as a marinade or as a salad dressing.
Disadvantage: This form of nutrition is suitable for maintaining weight, but not for rapid weight loss.

The Apple Vinegar Diet
An ACV diet is a calorie based diet that is aided by cider vinegar. It is carried out over several weeks or months and is not intended for very short-term weight loss, but for medium to long-term success, which can then remain permanent.
An apple cider vinegar diet is based on a strict diet plan that should not be deviated from. It’s made up of only 2 to 3 main meals per day, in which you count your calorie intake.
You can download a trusted and free calorie counter app from the Google Play Store. I leave you the link below. Once you have obtained the app, you can just begin to add each food item that you’ve consumed every day.
“Loseit!” will automatically count the calories and calculate the percentage as well as the distribution of all nutrients ( fat, carbohydrates, and protein) for you. One day of the apple cider vinegar diet should not consist of more than 1200 calories.
The apple cider vinegar diet consists mainly of low-fat and low-carbohydrate foods. Instead of protein and meat, fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens are the center of your daily menus.
In this diet, apple cider vinegar is used primarily to boost the metabolism and curb the appetite. Existing fat pads are burned faster and weight loss can be accelerated.
The appetite-suppressing effects of apple cider vinegar make the diet easier to deal with, too, as excessive appetite and food cravings will be reduced.
During this Diet, use the ACV as follows
You should drink a glass of diluted apple cider vinegar about 30 minutes before each meal to curb your appetite. If you skip a meal, you should drink a glass of diluted apple cider vinegar instead. You should also do this in the event of a sudden hot-hunger attack.
You can also drink diluted apple cider vinegar to boost your metabolism. This is especially helpful in the morning directly after getting up.
During meals, apple cider vinegar can be used as a salad dressing, for example, to increase the effectiveness of the vinegar and to ensure a low-calorie diet.
Cons: A calorie-based diet requires a lot of discipline and computing and is. therefore, not always easy to follow.
In addition, there is a risk of a yo-yo effect after completion, which is why it is advisable to continue taking apple cider vinegar afterward.
The ACV Treatment (ACV Fasting Course)
An apple cider vinegar treatment is a rather radical way to lose weight. It is basically a special form of healing fast, in which apple cider vinegar plays a central role. Especially in the short term, it can be used to achieve a very fast weight loss.
With an apple cider vinegar course, solid food is actually completely dispensed with for several days to weeks. Instead, one feeds only on liquid food, which is supposed to detoxify your body.
In this detoxification treatment, apple cider vinegar plays a crucial role, as it becomes a nutritional foundation here during the detoxification phase.
Drink as much diluted apple cider vinegar as possible to replenish the liquid balance and at the same time allow for positive effects, such as:
Curbing appetite to do without solid food
Cleansing of the Intestines: Allows better digestion and faster detoxification
Boosting your Metabolism: Allows faster fat burning, activating liver functions to excrete pollutants more quickly.
In smaller quantities, other liquid foods such as vegetable stock and tea can also be consumed with apple cider vinegar.
After several days to weeks, the body is then reintroduced to solid food, eating particularly gentle and easily digestible foods, e.g. crisp-bread and fruits. Also, at this stage, the apple cider vinegar is used to keep your metabolism going and curb your appetite.
Cons: While an apple cider vinegar treatment can quickly lead to greater weight loss, it also carries the increased risk of a yo-yo effect, as the detoxified body subsequently demands a lot of solid food. In addition, this course can be very tiring, especially in the first few days, and it requires a lot of discipline.
Apple cider vinegar has many positive properties that can also be used for losing weight. For example, the natural fruit vinegar stimulates digestion and metabolism and has a good appetite-suppressing effect.
In addition to simply using apple cider vinegar as a food additive, you can also perform an apple cider vinegar diet or a targeted apple cider vinegar treatment to shed some extra pounds.
All these methods have advantages and disadvantages so that you have to decide for yourself how you want to use apple cider vinegar for weight control.
In addition to discipline, however, a generally healthy lifestyle is always necessary for this to end in a success story.
