I did choke down Apple Cider Vinegar everyday because I thought it would be some miracle weight loss cure. I didn't lose a pound. My mom likes it and uses it on something practically every day and has found no benefit.

There was also a time that I was suffering from allergy related vertigo and one of my friends swore that ACV would cure it. It did not.

If someone likes to drink that particular mixture and they dilute the vinegar. Maybe it won't be that bad.

Personally I don't find any benefit in it.

I'm going to question your nephrologist, then. I worked as a sonographer (that's ultrasound, in case you didn't know) in a nephrology office in Denver and every doctor there said that nothing would flush toxins from your body any better than the body already does. This came up often because people always wanted the quick fix to their problems, and even women in the office would do 'lemon detoxes' and other things. There are over 30 doctors in this office and not one of them gave any credit to the rumors of the benefits of lemon water, except that it helps people to drink more water.

If your nephrologist cares to share where he gets his information, I would love to take it to my bosses. If there is any real, scientific fact behind lemon water, then it should be made public. As far as I can see, it is merely anecdotal evidence.

Although occasional use of apple cider vinegar is safe for most people, it won't likely lead to weight loss — and it may pose problems of its own. For example:

Apple cider vinegar is highly acidic. It may irritate your throat if you drink it often or in large amounts.
Apple cider vinegar may interact with certain supplements or drugs, including diuretics and insulin. This may contribute to low potassium levels.
-----------------------------------

"As far as the apple cider vinegar diet is concerned, there is absolutely no scientific evidence showing that it can aid in weight loss"

I'd say if you like apple cider vinegar, go ahead and use it, but there is no proof of it actually working.

If you decide to try it, be SURE that you dilute the vinegar. A tablespoon in a glass of water is about right. The other name for vinegar is acetic acid, and when it's undiluted it can cause burns to the mouth or throat as well as damaging the teeth. As long as you dilute it, it can't hurt. And if you really believe that it's going to help, it might. The placebo effect can be powerful.

Nothing you eat or drink can "flush" water (or toxins for that matter) from your body. including ACV and honey. Your body isn't a toilet, and it can't be flushed, period. If you dropped 15 lbs in 10 days, you probably dropped that because you cut sodium. If you replaced another beverage or food with the mix, that would do it.. time and hydration, not magical properties of the ingredients. Lemon water, cucumbers, mint, whatever.. it just a different way to be hydrated.

It's also common knowledge that often we mistake thirst for hunger, and drinking water can cut that feeling and fill up your belly, reducing perceived cravings.

I find this an interesting thread...I've heard of and used ACV for colds and illness, but not for anything having to do with weight. There are probably lots of things that are good about ACV but it isn't going to be a cure all for everything, just something media seems to hype up, kind of like Acai berry or pomegranate being the next "super" food.

look at it this way, there isn't anything in there that is going to be particularly harmful to you, right? so try it out. if nothing else there is the placebo effect.
that being said, don't try it as the only thing you do. and if you find you hate it, have to choke it down or otherwise find it unpalatable, then skip it. and if you find you like it, pat yourself on the back that you're getting a little boost, just like you would if you like spicy food or icy water [both increase calories burned, but to the tune of less than 10 cals a day. so it's not worth it to suffer through, but if it is something you already do then it's a teeny, tiny little boost you can be pleased with].

-google first. ask questions later.

When I was pregnant I was retaining water like crazy! My mom recommended i drink honey and vinegar mixed in water.. idropped like 15lbs in 10 days. I think it just flushed the water off. A few days ago I started drinking a mix of raw honey,Braggs AC vinegar,lemon juice, cinnamon and water.... I LOVE IT! Not only is it tasty but I don't feel hungry all the time! Maybe its in my head but regardless how can you go wrong!?

Or you could take nothing and save your money. That's usually the angle I'm after. I take enough things that actually "work", usually in the form of food. I'm always interested in more things that work. But anecdotes are nowhere near proof. You can find anecdotes for just about everything thanks to the internet.

That's why I never hesitate to ask. There is a lot of research out there and I haven't gone through a sliver of it. So if someone else has found something, I'm all ears.

I have looked up benefits on some home remedies, including ACV, and they all say, "there have not been enough studies to prove if it actually works" I say, "why the heck not" I believe it's because they want to keep making money off conventional drugs and do not want you to rely on good ole fashioned remedies. That's just my opinion, not a fact.

Nothing in the form of peer review that SP is so fond of. Just personal experience. I have been using ACV like i said almost every day in my salad dressings. Raw honey and bee pollen go into my smoothies.
I have also studied with Hallehuja acres and Ann Wigmore. I have studied Gabriel Cousens. Many of their recipes include ACV and honey.
But otherwise like I said, just personal experience.

Why don't you think it's a myth? Do you have some evidence you could share? I think that would help out the original poster (and me).

No there is no truth to it.

If you like apple cider vinegar then enjoy, but so many people choke it down for some health benefit that doesn't exist.

Technically I use both almost on a daily basis. Maybe not in the mix that FB claimed, but I love to make my salad dressings with ACV and every now and then I will use RAW honey or even bee pollen to sweeten things.
Not completely convinced it is a myth, but it would work differently in everyone.

Nope. It's largely a myth to my knowledge. For ACV, there are some interesting results on blood lipid profiles and glucose control in diabetic rats. I don't put a lot of faith in rat studies. But I put even less faith in people in Facebook.

I have seen occasional Facebook posts suggesting that consuming a mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and raw honey mixed with water has all kinds of health benefits and is helpful for weight loss. Does anyone know if there is any truth to this? Is it worth doing?

short and mid-term goal:
stay consistent and keep losing weight.
long-term goal:
feel better about myself and not have weight be something I think about on a daily basis.
