Weight loss is usually achieved through a careful balance of diet and exercise.
However, there are many other tips and tricks that can help speed up weight loss, and improve results.
One way is drinking apple cider vinegar, a natural, fermented liquid that is known to aid weight loss.
Drinking the liquid everyday can even help you lose 11 pounds in just one week, a health website has claimed.
How does it work?
Apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries in cooking and for its medicinal properties, but only recently has it been used for weight loss.
Studies have shown the link between apple cider vinegar and the body boosting fat burning, with the liquid decreasing fat and sugar production in the liver.
According to Natural Remedies 4U, the liquid can actually speed up weight loss and has the potential to help Britons lose a whopping 11 pounds in one week.
The vinegar works by ridding the body of toxins, and as a result boosts digestion and the metabolism.
It also works by reducing appetite and controlling blood sugar levels, which can spike and lead to increased appetite.
The liquid also aids weight loss by reducing the body’s ability to store fat and increasing the body’s amount of fat burning genes.
Apple cider vinegar is a natural liquid that is fermented, meaning it is full of good pre and probiotics – which aid gut health.
How much to drink?
Apple cider vinegar is a fermented liquid, and should only be consumed in small quantities.
According to Healthline.com, the perfect amount of the vinegar to drink is one to two tablespoons a day.
Doses should ideally be consumed before meals, to sooth the liquid’s effect on the stomach, and at different times throughout the day.
Apple cider vinegar shouldn’t be drink alone, but instead mixed with water or made into a tea with other spices such as ginger.
When buying apple cider vinegar it is important that the liquid has “the mother” in it, as it is the most powerful bacteria that oozes health properties.
Other benefits of apple cider vinegar include controlling blood sugar levels, lowering cholesterol, helping with PCOS and fighting off bacteria and viruses.
Many studies prove its miraculous effects, with one study of overweight or obese subjects finding that those taking the drink lost double the amount of weight over a three month period.
Scientists found the drink helped to reduced the appetite, decrease weight and cause dieters to lose inches.
Another study found 15 or 30 ml (one or two tablespoons) of apple cider vinegar daily for three months helped overweight adults lose an average of 2.6 and 3.7 pounds.
