Does organic ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) really help lose weight?

Total Votes
I'm on a weight loss mission so it could be great to see what you guys think about it (ACV) since it's my first time using it. I've heard some good news about its wonderful works and I just need to be 100% sure angel

To be's like everything long as you're on a healthy low calorie diet and exercise then it will help.

I've been taking some every day for about 3 months but not for weight loss. I take it mainly for stomach cleansing as an anti oxidant.

Is it such a mystery? Burn off more energy than you take in, simple.

I use apple cider a lot.
It is certainly supposed to help with weight loss if taken first thing in the morning.
Either way, it is good for you thumbs up

It does help. If you can put up with the taste alone, otherwise you may want to consider mixing it with other fruit juice flavors that also help curb weight gain. 100% pure prune juice mixes well with it...just be prepared for the 'pruning' affect. laugh
100% pure unsweetened pink grapefruit juice is another very good one for curbing, but I wouldn't recommend mixing it with ACV. uh oh It does make a good breakfast juice.

I mix mine with organic Apple juice and it makes it more bearable to drink first thing in the morning.

don't have a clue about this stuff in thought you just putv on chips if yo wants to get lighter I hasd the answer eat less piles of fuit as well is not easy stop bickies and fizzy drinke and drink loads of good wine instead then you will be happy as well hope it goes well

If anyone has lost weight while drinking this stuff, how do you know it wasn't something else responsible for the weight loss.

Drinking apple cider vinegar for weight loss seems far-fetched.
Does it work?

Answers from Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.
Apple cider vinegar isn't likely to be effective for weight loss.

Proponents of the apple cider vinegar diet claim that drinking a small amount of apple cider vinegar before meals or taking an apple cider vinegar supplement helps curb appetite and burn fat. However, there's little scientific support for these claims.

Although occasional use of apple cider vinegar is safe for most people, it won't likely lead to weight loss — and it may pose problems of its own. For example:

Apple cider vinegar is highly acidic. It may irritate your throat if you drink it often or in large amounts.
Apple cider vinegar may interact with certain supplements or drugs, including diuretics and insulin. This may contribute to low potassium levels.

Remember, there's no magic bullet for weight loss.

The key to losing weight is burning more calories than you consume.

Choose a variety of healthy foods — such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein —
and include physical activity in your daily routine.

If you drink it, you are much less likely to want to eat anything afterwards, thus weight loss laugh


That's my take on it..... laugh , although there's plenty of folks swear by it.
One needs to be careful though.... I used to drink a lot of pink grapefruit juice too, till I found out it contained red dye. So I switched to just regular grapefruit juice. And I also tried the vinegar for a while....ended up in hospital over night with low potassium.
(was struggling with gallstones at the time.... and apple cider vinegar was supposed to help with that... it didn't)


I do use it myself sometimes. I always felt better after it. But I have no underlying illnesses, so just for general health.

It's good for the hair and scalp too,.


I think it's good for lotsa stuff.
I still use it, drink it, cook with it, and sometimes as hair rinse (although I prefer tea tree oil shampoo now)

It just isn't all that great for gallstones......laugh
which is no longer an issue as I no longer have one

I use cider vinegar regularly.

At the moment I'm drinking the juice of half a lemon and a good slug of cider vinegar in a glass of water in the mornings.

It has good cleansing properties and is a veritable miracle cure for nausea.

I've not noticed any weight loss.

(I eat very healthy foods, I'm very active, but I do rely on protein supplemented smoothies to cope with early work shifts and 10 minute lunch breaks.)
