The Truth About Apple Cider Vinegar For Weight Loss

Today I want to cover a topic I was asked about recently, which is “will apple cider vinegar help with weight loss”?  So here’s the truth about apple cider vinegar for weight loss.

What is it?

Apple Cider vinegar is made from fermented apple juice and is often used as a salad dressing or to marinade food etc. But more recently it’s being pushed as a health supplement for weight loss.

But does it actually help with weight loss?

In short, the answer is no, the effect it has will be very minimal that it’s not worth consuming apple cider vinegar as a health supplement.

There’s still not a lot of research into the health claims made about apple cider vinegar but the research that has been done doesn’t support the claims.

Here’s one study I read.

The good news is that vinegar is low in calories (3 kcal per tablespoon) and an easy, low-calorie way to flavour foods. While it contributes minimally to the nutrient composition of a meal, the use of vinegar as an ingredient can be part of a healthy meal pattern and a way to limit calories, which can ultimately help with both weight loss and diabetes.

So my suggestion would be instead of looking for the magic pill focus on creating a calorie deficit by reducing your overall intake of food and upping your activity levels.  And that’s the truth about apple cider vinegar for weight loss.
