There are many different kinds of crazy, fad diets but the best way to find something that works for you is to try something that is natural. Many people consider apple cider vinegar to be a natural way to lose body fat. There is a way to burn body fat using this vinegar but in a healthy kind of way so I thought I would look into this further.
There are many fad diets created to make you lose weight fast but they are not always too healthy for you. The apple cider vinegar diet offers gradual weight loss. You eat balanced meals and as long as you keep away from fast food and other unhealthy kinds of food you should see results.
Apple cider vinegar has a two-step fermentation process. In the first step, the apples are cut or crushed and they yeast is added so their sugar converts into alcohol. In the second step, bacteria is added to the alcohol fermenting it into acetic acid. It takes about a month for this process to be completed in the traditional apple cider vinegar production. When the apple cider vinegar is ready to be used one tablespoon (15 ml) of the vinegar had about three calories and practically no carbs.
Apples are a good source of pectin which when added to a diet will make you feel fuller and more satisfied without overeating. Apple cider vinegar contains the same amount of pectin as apples do which is about 1.5 grams of it and it can suppress appetite. The reason this vinegar can help instead of eating raw apples is that acids help with the digestion of proteins. These are the building blocks of our hormones particularly the growth hormone and this hormone is able to break down fat cells.
Therefore by increasing the acid that is present in your stomach before each meal you ensure the chances of faster digestion and increase the availability of protein for hormone synthesis. Since apple cider vinegar stimulates digestion, it also reduces the time that fats remain in the digestive tract. Apple cider vinegar begins working right from the start of the digestive process and stimulates your appetite and increases your interest in whole foods.
Apple cider vinegar also improves the utilization of iron in your body which is a key component, carrying oxygen to the cells and keeping it there. It is also a great source of potassium. Taken on a regular basis apple cider vinegar will contribute to the potassium your body needs to balance the sodium in your diet. So in other words with this vinegar, it is like replacing salt in your diet. You can even sprinkle some on vegetables to replace salt.
To start use 1 to 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with 8 ounces of water. Drink this before each meal or three times a day. This will get you on the road to burning body fat and as long as you eat sensibly before long you should start seeing results. If you are wondering then yes, I plan on doing this because I do not have too much excess weight but I sure can stand to lose some body fat for trimmer lines.
