I love this topic. I'm not an expert. Yes, vinegar is considered an old remedy according to my mum. Cleans internal organs, reduces body fat, anti bacterial/yeast properties and balances the ph in your body, anti inflammatory, reduces high blood pressure. Some are proven and some are not. You can even clean glass with it. Great for green living. :)
As for the odor, I haven't heard of it. Yes, you may need to adjust the dose and drink more water to flush.

Everyone's PH balance is a little different. Perhaps if you cut down a little bit on how much you drink? ACV changes the ph balance in your body...usually that is a good thing but I've never heard of it causing an odor. ACV is actually used to dissipate body odor. I guess you will have the weight the benefits of drinking it against the side effects.

We used to have a neighbor that reeked of garlic all the time. He was told by his Dr. that taking garlic pills were good for his heart so he took 4 a day. It actually started leaking out of the pores of his skin. Personally, I would rather have my lady parts smell like a salad (they make douches in vinegar and water by the way) and lose the weight, than be fat forever and smell sexy.

I usually get the "scent" too. I use ACV for internal cleansing. My uncle swears by ACV and its remedies. I have noticed that it helps with my allergies but not sure if it is attributed to weight loss.

I know this isn't the classiest subject, but we're all ladies here and I want to know if it's just me. In my quest to drop the extra pounds I'm willing to try some bizarre things, I read that drinking a little bit (about a tablespoon full) of vinegar before a meal will help shed lbs. I don't know how if it actually works or if my body's just gullible because without making any other big changes to my diet or fitness I noticed a spike in weight loss, and I didn't get my usual late night snack cravings either. I thought I had stumbled upon the dieting world's holy grail! The only problem is, within about 4 days of this new ritual (this isn't pretty, gals) I and my boyfriend noticed that my lady bits started to reek of vinegar! This odor was entirely unprecedented, and I'm sure there is a direct correlation. I stopped with the vinegar and the smell went away. Am I the only one out here who's tried the vinegar thing and experienced this phenomena? I was using apple cider vinegar, think I should switch it up and use white? I apologize for the crudeness of this subject, but what better place to ask?
