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!

Hey! I've been taking ACV for about 10 days with meals...twice a day. The best way I found to take it without tasting the actual vinegar is to put it in a glass of water with an AIRBORNE tablet. Airborne is great for keeping colds away and giving you energy...so I suggest taking it this way because you won't actually taste the vinegar and it actually tastes really good. I take the "lemon-lime" AIRBORNE (invented by a school teacher--fizzy drink) tablet...with a glass of water...and i use the measuring cup for cough syrup to measure the vinegar... my recipe: 1 Lemon-line Airborne tablet 1 glass of water at room temp 2 table spoons ACV

Drink it before meals twice a day...

I always brush my teeth right after too, the acidity is so high in the vinegar that my teeth started to get sensitive because the vinegar wears on the enamel. Anyway, I started out as being 108lbs...I just wanted to lose about 5 or 6lbs before going on vacay (to a beach city). That might seem like a lot of weight to lose but I am only about 5ft tall and very petite. Anyway, this stuff really works if you stick to it. I didn't lose weight gradually. I dropped about 4lbs in 5 days on the 5th day. For the skeptics out there, TRY IT! It also works great for sore throats...It helped me!

I would not mix ACV in Airborne--or take Airborne at all. It contains an artificial sweetener, which is not only poison, but also makes you FAT!

Thank you so much for sharing. I just started taking the royal jelly and honey mixture together at night. It has done wonders for my sleep, and my abdominal. Is not as inflated, ive noticed a change in my eating habits as well, and I dont feel brain fatigued. I am happy that you found this remedy that works, like you had suffered, I am tired of suffering from obesity and I truly want my body back, I have alot of living to do. Your testimony definitely give me drive and inspiration. I will also include your remedy as well. I cant wait to try it.

I just wanted to say that the acv diet really works. When I first started the program I was 196lbs and I've been on it for 9 days and I now weight 187lbs!! I am so happy I stopped the diet, but I am now back on it. I am also doing the colon cleanse as well. The only thing that I am unsure about is how much am I to drink per day?

Hi, I have been drinking the apple cider vinegar concoction 3-4 times a day (about 2 tbsp ACV, 1 tbsp honey, 1/2 cup water, and occasionally molasses and cinnamon if its handy), and not consciously trying to diet (or exercise) in any other way- sort of out of laziness and sort of in an attempt to see if this stuff works- well, its been three weeks and I just got on the scale for the first time because I knew I'd lost a lot and wasn't scared of the dreaded scale like I usually am- I AM 124 POUNDS!!!! I'm 5ft 3in so this isn't quite my ideal yet, but I was almost 140 when I started this. I think the way it works is by just really killing your appetite while giving you some nourishment so your metabolism doesn't go into free fall. I've still been eating - I just am not that interested in it anymore. Not that into coffee anymore either, and my smoking is DOWN- I'll be honest, one of the reasons I didn't want to give up smoking was I was worried I would gain more weight. Ok, so I am losing AND smoking less- guess that reasoning is now blown out of the water. It just seems to kill your appetite for stuff of all kinds. All I can say is WOW. Today I dug into the closet and got an old pair of jeans out that I nearly threw away last year because I could not even get them up past my thighs, and today I zipped them up and am sitting comfortably in them here at the computer. This stuff WORKS - can't remember how I found this site, but I am SO grateful. Thanks everybody and good luck to anyone trying out the wonderful ACV!

I have struggled with GERD, Overweight, and fatigue for several years. After the medical discovery that Prilosec, Nexium and other medications as these can stop calcium from being absorbed in your bones, I was a little scared. So I decided to do some web surfing for natural cures.. And YOU WERE HERE! Over a week ago I started the ACV and HOT water with baking soda mixture. The first three days I lost 5 pounds and my reflux problem was gone. It tried to come back later that first week, so I increased my intake of AVC to a more powerful solution.
1/2 cup of ACV
1/2 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda ( 1 x day)

Today I weighed again ad I have lost 9 lbs! I am so happy! Plus my blood pressure is becoming more stable. The GERD is gone. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for this website! God bless you guys!!

ACV is amazing! I've been reading this website and decided to try 'The Cleanse' recipe for losing weight. On 2/5/07 I began taking 1/2 cup of _______s Unfiltered ACV, 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemons, cayenne pepper, and 2 tablespoons of honey in a quart of spring water and only 4 days later, I've lost 5 lbs.! I'm so excited about ACV; I didn't think it would work so fast. My goal is to lose 20-25 lbs. I will continue this regimen until I reach my goal. Thank you for this wonderful website!
