Re: Digestive probs caused by apple cider vinegar
Hi Bonny...... As far as I know, there's no proof that taking a few teaspoons of vinegar before meals can curb your appetite or reduce cravings. A few studies have shown that vinegar may have some impact on how quickly a meal affects blood sugar levels, but body weight was not affected.
The bottom line...... Anyone losing weight on a cider vinegar diet is doing so because they are eating fewer calories and not because they're ingesting vinegar.
If you're trying to lose weight with vinegar, try eating more vegetable salads and topping them with a dressing that uses less oil and more vinegar. This will shave calories and encourage consumption of high-in-fiber, satisfying veggies. If it's causing digestive problems, I would hold off and see if your present symptoms go away.
Wishing you the best in health.........
