Heidi Klum: The Apple Cider Vinegar Diet
An alternative to dangerous weight loss pills,
Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural and potent remedy for losing weight.
Celebrities swear by a pre-meal gulp of vinegar. Heidi Klum has said even a sniff curbs her cravings.
Mix with 12-16 oz of water with 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (ACV) and drink before a meal. If unpalatable, try mixing with a natural sweetener such as stevia, but do not add sugar. Apple cider vinegar cleanses the system and makes your digestive tract more alkaline. Because acid production may be too plentiful in breaking down food, the excess acid causes your body to store toxins in fat and extra weight. This is one reason you can find vinegar used in detox programs, activating the liver to rid your body of extra fats and proteins.
ACV also helps to reduce cravings. Use unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar (Braggs is a popular brand), where you can still see the mother, or cloudy, brown material floating in the jar. ACV has also been known to improve digestion, clear up acne and reduce swelling.
Do not expect the same weight loss results with vinegar mixed with oil, such as in salad dressings. If the ACV composition is changed, such as heated up or combined with oil, the chemistry of the ACV is altered just enough that it does not have the same affect as with mixed with water.
This traditional and age-old elixir for shedding the pounds has had its supporters and its skeptics. Nonetheless, you can’t argue with the likes of Heidi Klum and others like artist Fergie, who used apple cider vinegar to look as good as they do!
