It’s the new diet that’s sweeping the world - claiming that you can lose serious weight in just one week from consuming ONE thing.
A prominent health website has stated that drinking just two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar - either with water or even in a salad dressing every day - can help you lose up to 5kg in a week.
According to Natural Remedies 4U, the liquid can actually speed up weight loss and has the potential to help you drop kilos fast.
Apple cider vinegar has long been hailed as one of the most effective weight loss tools, with studies showing that people lose nearly twice as much weight in three months compared to those who didn’t consume it.
The vinegar works by ridding the body of toxins and aiding liver function, boosting digestion and metabolism. It also works by reducing appetite and controlling blood sugar levels, meaning you feel more full and are less inclined to eat too much.
There are also other health benefits to consuming apple cider vinegar - it can improve digestion, protect against heart disease and control blood sugar levels.
Experts say you should never have more than 1-2 tablespoons of the vinegar a day. Extreme dieters may choose to do the full detox with the apple cider vinegar drink to get maximum results, which involves drinking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with 250ml of filtered water and 1/4 teaspoon of honey every day for a week in conjunction with a low-calorie diet.
Otherwise, just incorporating apple cider vinegar into your diet - try it mixed with olive oil as a tasty salad dressing - could still see you reaping the weight loss benefits of apple cider vinegar.
Of course the apple cider detox is only meant to be a short term diet solution and people should always contact their doctor before starting a new health regime.
