I Drank Apple Cider Vinegar to Lose Weight and Here’s What Happened

19 0

When I think of apple cider vinegar, my face immediately makes that distorted “sour” expression and a wave of heebee-jeebees washes over me. Which is why I don’t typically fancy myself a shot of it first thing in the morning — or, ever.

That said, apple cider vinegar has an astounding amount of health benefits. Though I do wish I could just spritz myself with ACV and call it a day, the health benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar are far greater than my overall hatred for its taste. Here’s what happened when I drank it to lose weight (plus, how many pounds I ended up losing and why you should be careful about too much apple cider).

1. I felt less bloated

Since I couldn’t stomach the taste of ACV in the morning, I decided to mix a shot of it into ice cold lemon water. The lemon and chill factor helped mask its flavor and actually made the process somewhat enjoyable.

One of the first things I noticed was my bloat — or, lack thereof. I am someone who, unfortunately, gets bloated very easily, to the point where I don’t even notice it half the time. And, while I may not always notice my bloat, I definitely noticed when it disappeared.

2. I felt full faster

Another thing I noticed throughout my two week experiment was how I actually felt fuller faster. According to research, that’s because apple cider vinegar can actually suppress appetite and decrease calorie intake.

3. My guts were happier

In addition to decreasing my bloat and suppressing my appetite, apple cider vinegar also helped out my gut. Because of its fermentation, apple cider vinegar can act as a probiotic on the body and promote a healthier digestion. And while compared to others, this benefit was minor for me, I definitely noticed less stomach aches and digestion issues while drinking ACV as opposed to not drinking it.

Hope this was helpful!
