Has anyone else heard of drinking vinegar with their water every day for fat burning and reducing arthritis inflammation?

I did hear something a few years ago. I think it was cider vinegar. Don't know that there's any data to prove it though!

If you google "weight loss + vinegar" the most mentioned form of vinegar referenced is apple cider vinegar. Then, if you read many of the articles cited, you'll find that apple cider vinegar is mentioned frequently as beneficial to weight loss but most of the references are anedoctal and not hard science. Many people however SWEAR by the benefits of apple cider vinegar. As for me, I have a salad every day and so I think I'll just switch to apple cider vinegar & see what happens!

Tell you what, I started having a V8 "Mocktail" every evening: 4 oz low sodium Spicy Hot V8, 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp. lime juice, 4 drops oil of oregano, and a dash of extra hot sauce. I knock that back before I start dinner and have been doing that almost every night for about a month. I have been more careful with eating habits and working out consistently, of course, but all I can say is not only am I OFF my year plus plateau, I am now in the lower 140s. Not only that, my skin is clearing and my hair is a lot shinier! Is it mostly the ACV? I don't know, but you might want to try it and see if it does anything for you! I use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar with "The Mother". If you google it you can learn more. It is not expensive and it is found in many supermarkets and health food stores. Best wishes!

I recently picked up a used book from 2007 that recommends having a high acid food, 3-4 tbl spoons, with every meal to control blood sugar rise (which results in more efficient fat-burning). Carole, it sounds like your "Mocktail" is perfect for that. Tomatoes, citrus, vinegar, hots, are all high acid. The book is "Reader's Digest Magic Foods For Better Blood Sugar". The section cites case studies that were done etc... I don't know if it's still in print but I'd be happy to send a scan of the chapter to anyone who is interested in what it has to say.

I have noticed when I eat olives it helps with digestion. The olives are in vinegar. Wonderful info here.

Hi! Thanks for commenting, "14pounds"! I've also started having 1 tablespoon of raw coconut vinegar (does NOT taste like coconut at ALL!) in a glass of very warm water with a tablespoon of lemon juice and some hot sauce in the morning. It's quite invigorating. Today I weigh 141! Cheers!
