"Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism in January 2010, reinforces previous evidence that the acetic acid in vinegar can indeed reduce postprandial blood sugars. According to Johnston, "Two teaspoons of vinegar effectively reduced PPG (after meal blood sugar). This effect was most pronounced when vinegar was taken with the meal as compared to 5 hours before the meal." Just two teaspoons of vinegar, taken with a meal, may help you keep better blood glucose control."

Oh I remember that diet fad. My aunt, who is now in her 80's, swore by it. It didn't work.

Please provide a direct link the this research you are quoting, sunshine. I'm using my university hospital access and lexisnexis to find this Nobumasa Ogawa, Ph.D you are quoting and I am not finding anything but that quote with no citations. I want to read this research and claims for myself.
It seems for some people vinegar in their diet will improve blood sugar...it was discovered by Nobumasa Ogawa, Ph.D., of Tokyo University in Tokyo...he said that "the acetic acid inhibits the activity of several carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, when vinegar is present in the intestines, some sugars and starches temporarily pass through without being digested, so they have less of an impact on blood sugar".
As the previous posted BSBARLOW said it helps control cravings...an easy way to get the vinegar is by using a Olive oil and vinegar salad dressing, vinaigrette dressings drizzled over steamed veggies, or whole rye bread dipped in Olive Oil and vinegar. The rye also digests slowly and helps keep me full.
So I would think trying it may or may not prove to help you.....this is not medical advice...Please consult a medical professional for individual advice.
I have been drinking the vinegar with green tea and it HAS REALLY cut my out of control cravings WAAAY back. I started 5/10 and as of 5/17 have lost 9 pounds. It works for me.

There's a problem with drinking vinegar (even diluted): it does affect your teeth's enamel. So, go lightly - use a straw if you decide to try it, and bypass your teeth as much as possible.
That said, it's not a magic elixir, but it does have some effect. Not much, not enough to be a substitute for calorie-counting and more physical activity.

I'll tell you the best thing for acne. Proactiv. My daughter had acne real bad and it really works. Cleared her right up. No, I'm not a spokesperson for them, I just know for a fact that it worked on my daughter. Also, about the ACV and Honey, everyone's right. The only way it would work is to act as an appetite suppressant, and the sweetness of honey only makes me hungrier. I take the ACV every night and it helps with my acid reflux, nothing else.

Apple cider vinegar may have benefits, but weight loss isn't one of them.
There's no food you can eat or drink that will make you "burn fat" or lose weight. That's because losing weight is about eating fewer calories than you burn. At the end of the day, if you're over your calorie count, drinking apple cider won't make you lose weight anyway.
It is a fad diet that was popular more than 30 years ago and is making the rounds again.

Apple Cider Vinegar, in the organic kind, is very good for you. Naturopaths, or mine at least, recommend it. So, whether you decide to see if it helps with weight loss or not, just know it won't hurt you.

I'm sorry, it's just another one of those odd "fad diets" - there is nothing about apple cider vinegar that will help you lose weight. It's a fad that has been around for many many years, and I've yet to hear of anyone that experienced anything resembling success with it.

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried drinking organic apple cider vinegar with water, and honey for a weight loss aid? I have also heard that is helps with acne. I am thinking of starting to take a little each day and want to know if it worked for anyone.
