I have hypothyroidism and for years I fought to lose weight. I tried every diet out there, exercised everyday for 2-3 hours a day. I would lose 5-20 lbs and gain it all back, plus some. I finally saw a dietitian and found out I was doing it all wrong. She explained that people with thyroid issues, can't digest food fast enough, if large volumes of food are eaten. So I was put on a six mini meal a day plan. I was also told no more than thirty minutes of cardio. I did this and very slowly the weight was coming off. I wanted quicker results and saw an article about ACV, baking soda, and lemon. I have hypertension and opted out on baking soda.

I started drinking 2 TBSP of ACV in 4 ounces of water, three times a day. Immediately the pounds started melting away faster with the program I was on. I went from 259 lbs down to 197 lbs in six months. Even my blood pressure dropped to normal, my cholesterol levels were normal, and the inflammation in my joints were gone. If not for weight loss....do it for your health. It's worth it!!

I have been taking apple cider vinegar for the past month to lose weight. It's working and I feel awesome. I take a teaspoon of ac vinegar in hot water with lemon when I wake up, then a tablespoon of it in my sports water bottle, which I sip all day. I have lost 4 pounds so far.

I am a believer! I thank God for you. I stumbled upon your website because I was looking for a natural way to lose weight. I was at my wits end. I started reading all of the ACV reviews and they gave me so much encouragement. I had some organic ACV in my kitchen so I started the regimine two weeks ago. I started at 215 lbs and this morning I weigh 209.8! So far I'm down 6 pounds!! During this time my husband and I went out for a special dinner and I had wine, bread, a steak dinner, mac and cheese, and cheesecake for dessert! I have not dieted or worked out once. I take 2 tbls with 6-8 ounces of water 3 times a day and the weight is slowly but surely coming off. Before I would have been so discouraged because I wanted the weight to come off quickly. I have now realized that, like the turtle, slow and steady is the way to go. Along with the weight loss I have also noticed other benefits as well. My skin is glowing, the whites of my eyes are "whiter", I am post-menopausal and would wake up several times throughout the night but since I started taking ACV I sleep without waking up (unless I have to make a bathroom run), and my energy is through the roof! I am so very happy for the weight loss and the other benefits from ACV. This is some amazing stuff! I will continue to take it for life!

I have been struggling with my weight for a long time. I became hypothyroid after the birth of my second son. My weight skyrocketed up to 260 on my 5ft 10 inch frame. I was getting joint pain, back pain, no energy, irritable bowels, depression..so I began eating more whole grains,vegetables, took multivitamins, ate natural yogurt each day, exercised every day..nothing worked. then I read this book written by a doctor from vermont in like 1958 about apple cider vinegar. Sounded weird but I have tried weirder stuff so I began drinking a teaspoon of it in a glass of water with a teaspoon of honey. That was one month ago. My weight is 239. thats 20 pounds in a month. oh, I am 38 years old.

I have been drinking apple cider vinegar for about six years. What I noticed right away was I don't have any of joint stiffness and pain. When I stop using it for more than 4 days, the pain returns to my back and neck. I also noticed that my weight is always perfect for my height 5'6", 127 pounds, 54 years old. The vinegar removes the excess salt from your body when you sleep, so no bags under the eyes when you wake up in the morning. I drink two tablespoons of acv with 16 ounces of water, two hours before bed, it removes toxins in your body while sleeping, so no swelling in the joints, no bags under the eyes from excess salt. It is a natural weight loss, as well as rotor-rooters the arteries, so good for your heart. also keeps your body from getting sick. I love it! Carolynne

I learned about the Apple Cider Vinegar for weight loss from a parent of one of the girls I coached in soccer. I used it twice a day, in the morning (2 table spoons in apple cider) and 2 tablespoons again before I go to sleep. I ate sensibly and exercised two days a week. I lost about 60 pounds in 4 months. Recently I went back to it when I felt my weight was getting back up to an unacceptable level. Using the same plan I have lost 25 pounds in 3 weeks. I find that using about 4 ounces of apple cider does a good job of making the taste of the ACV. It's working for me, you may want to try it

This is update #1. I've been taking ______ ACV religiously 3 times daily (1/8 - 1/4 cup). Since I've started taking the vinegar, I've noticed a lot of other benefits besides helping to heal my sinus problem. My energy level has greatly increased. This has allowed me to start exercising more. I started walking about an hour a day (at least 3 days a week) for a few weeks, and now I'm even jogging on occasion. So far in the past 2 weeks, I've lost a few pounds, which of course is related to the exercise, but I still maintain it wouldn't be possible without the ACV and the energy I've gotten from not being sick all the time. God bless this site and for the information you provide. I'll give another update in a month or so. As I like to say as a toast when I take the ACV... Here's to your health

26 Days ago I decided to try and get my weight down for my vacation, now in 11 days. At first, I told myself 37 days, I can just go running everyday, do my stairmaster and eat well, I should be able to be back to my normal weight of 115 or less, in the 37 days. At the time I was about 126, and I originally gained up to the 137 mark! SO I really wanted to lose that last 10-11 pounds before my vacay. I was on a roll with my exercises, then I got sick, and stopped and 1 day turned to 2 turned to 3. So then I went online looking for motivation, tips, etc. I found the Apple Cider Vinegar diet on Earthclinic. I was amazed and so motivated by the feedback I read, so I figured, what could it hurt? Well I have been on it for about 2 weeks, I weighed in this morning at 116. I have NO idea how this is happening, I eat what I like on the weekends, and a light lunch during the week and what I want for dinner. I changed none of my eatting habits from when I had the weight, and yet, I am weighing in at 116. I am so happy, I have told my co-workers, Gramma, friends, about this diet, I feel it really works. I was so discouraged before, I haven't felt good about my body in over a year. Thank you for your website!

I used vinegar several years ago when I lived in Florida, it worked great. My friend told me about it, and we usually mix the vinegar with V8 and drink it 2 or 3 times a day. Well recently since i weighed myself and found myself at 217 pounds I about died, already after one week im down to 204 pounds. It works for me!
