Apple cider vinegar diet: pros and cons

Many people claim that following an apple cider vinegar diet has caused them to shed several pounds in just a few weeks. It's certainly interesting that raw apple cider vinegar appears to assist some people in re-balancing their body chemistry. But do the benefits of following a vinegar diet outweigh its drawbacks?

Disadvantages

The most obvious disadvantage to cider vinegar is its taste. Drinking vinegar, or even adding it to your food in large quantities, is not an appealing idea for most people. Fortunately, there are ways around this. Try sweetening natural apple cider vinegar with equally natural fruit juice, or honey. Better yet, just dilute a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a large glass of water and drink it straight down. However you ingest cider vinegar, it’s always a good idea to drink plenty of pure water afterwards. Prior to digestion, apple vinegar is still an acid, and can destroy the enamel on your teeth. Bear in mind also that the vinegar diet doesn’t work for everyone. If your body has laid down fat in order to protect organs from the chemical attack of bad diet, then cider apple vinegar may help you to restore your natural PH balance, stop the chemical attack, and lose weight. However, the cider vinegar diet needs to be combined with sensible eating and an increase in exercise levels too. Even cider vinegar can’t visit the gym for you.

Benefits

In many ways, it’s the positive side of the apple cider diet that makes it unique, and totally different to any other diet out there. Apple cider vinegar’s apparent ability to balance your body chemistry may improve your long-term health prospects too, alleviating symptoms like fatigue, heartburn or joint pain. These benefits have been a part of folk medicine for centuries. Whilst tradition isn’t the same as rigorous scientific research, at least the cider vinegar diet has been time-tested enough to make it more than just a fad. Unlike some modern diet plans, the cider vinegar diet is also cheap and simple. Buy a bottle of cider vinegar (unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar contains the most nutrients) and you can begin. There are even easy ways to boost your cider vinegar intake if you can’t face drinking it. You can find apple cider vinegar recipes for tasty marinades, tempting relishes and tangy sauces. As with any diet, it’s important to check with your doctor that the cider vinegar diet will be suitable for you. But if it is, give it a go. You may be surprised by just how slim and energetic cider apples could make you feel.

How can women lose weight

As unfair as it may seem, women have a harder time losing weight than men.

Another reason why a woman's body may be more resistant to losing fat is because adipose tissue is essential for women, so as to enable her to conceive and carry on a pregnancy.
