Nutrition Tips : How Does Vinegar Help You Lose Weight?


My name is Christine Marquette and I’m a Registered
Dietician with the Austin Regional Clinic and I’m going to talk to you about how vinegar
helps you lose weight. There isn’t actually any scientific evidence that vinegar truly
helps you lose weight, it is mainly anecdotal. And one of the big factors is the use of apple
cider vinegar thats’ usually the type of vinegar that most people associate with weight loss.
There have been some preliminary studies, it’s been very modest weight loss, once study
showed an average weight loss of two pounds over a four-week period. That’s only a half
a pound a week. So again, no significant amount of weight loss in this particular study. And
the exact mechanism wasn’t really identified. One of the things that was hypothesize was
that it improve this particular group of people insulin response; so their insulin was used
more effectively, they actually did and completely digest all the carbohydrate that they ate,
so they actually absorb fewer calories. Again, that’s just a theory of why these people may
have potentially lost two pounds over a four-week period. So again, that’s not a significant
amount of weight loss and it really isn’t well known whether it was truly the vinegar
that cause to that weight loss. So again not a lot of scientific evidence that vinegar
truly can cause weight loss. It’s not something that necessarily bad for you, you definitely
can include it in salad dressings and pickling and that type of thing, but it’s better just
to use it because you actually like the flavor that it imparts on your food rather than relying
on it as a weight loss aid.

  1. RAW, ORGANIC, UNFILTERED apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg but there are others) 2 ounces in the morning with apple juice, every day, will tone you up. It is also a mild diuretic and can also aid in sugar metabolism. It has lots of B vitamins that boost energy, and enzymes that help the liver in it's quest to clean blood.

  2. Much like when you put an egg in cider vinegar and the shell is slowly eaten away leaving only the egg, the raw organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar eats away nasty deposits around the joints. I have arthritis so bad I am on chemotherapy (pill form only) but that did not totally do the trick so I started on the vinegar (again, raw, unfiltered) and it helps with the pain. It puts a bounce in your step.

  3. Also, I did not lose any weight while using it but I did lose two inches on my waist. That's nothing but toning. My blood pressure dropped. I went from six pills a day to two, and I still eat the same foods. It really has helped a lot. It has to be raw, unfiltered, organic to really really work good. Most health food stores carry them. It's like five bucks a bottle, lasts two weeks for a 16 ounce bottle. I take two ounces a day (one shot standard glass) with cold apple juice yum!

  4. Dont know about weight loss but I have great experience using Apple Vider vinegar to cure skin problems. Taking a bath in tub with 0,4 liter of 5% Cider vinegar once a week eliminates acne and helps my chronical subdermal inflammations.

  5. I have been using apple cider vinegar for 2 days now and I have lost 7lbs. The second time i took it make my stomach feel awful. I took 1 tablespoon a day for 2 days. It Tastes really gross, almost thew up. But yes I think it helps people lose weight, i weighed 138, now im 131^^
