I've been drinking a tbs of apple cider vinegar in 16 ounces of water since Friday. I read it could boost your metabolism ect. I noticed that I get some mild stomach pains for a few hours after drinking it.

Has anyone had this issue? I've lost nearly 4 lbs since Friday. I don't know if it's that's a reason why I've lost so much weight in such a short span of time or if it's because I've more than doubled my water intake since Friday. One thing is for certain, the nausea suppresses my appetite.

I used to use it -- a few tbsps before meals. seriously helps you loose weight-- i think its an insulin thing

Yes my son and I use it a lot. I sometimes have to stop because it mess with my taste buds. I had to cut down from 1 tbsp 3 times a day to 2 tsp 2 times a day. I had to stop while I had treatment on my stomach and I have not started back. You may have to reduce the amount of vinegar or increase water. Another reason I done it it for acid re flux. After doing the tonic for a week I had less heartburn and then none. I wont start back until the first of the year. I have to be very careful of acid foods for a little while. I am still trying to see what I can stomach. I stand by this tonic. I like home remedies. Google benefits of apple cider vinegar you will be amazed at all the health benefits.

I was drinking a Tbsp a day for a few weeks. Never made me feel nauseated or anything of that sort. Can't really say if it helped me or not as I was more diligent on working out and eating healthier then (been slacking a bit lately).
I personally wouldn't drink something that made me feel ill but I'm interested in hearing more!

I took it for about six weeks recently (advice from personal trainer) but I really didn't like it...liked it less and less each day as I took it after exercising.....then it did start to affect my stomach, and I have an acidic stomach issue anyway so figured it was just not something I could keep up long term. I now have an almost full bottle of the best apple cider vinegar in the pantry ready for making salad dressings! Good luck with it.....

I do when I remember to do it. I have the organic one by Bragg's. I took it one morning first thing on an empty stomach and it burned so I'll never do that again! Only after food for me. Didn't take it long enough to notice any benifits.

Yes, I drink it diluted in water, maybe once a day. Make sure you are getting apple cider vinegar with "the mother", which is the beneficial bacteria growth that does lots of wonderful things for our bodies.

Hi! I always drink apple cider vinegar in water. I don't do it for metabolism, I've never heard of that.. if it's true than cool, that's a bonus.. haha. I do it to prevent UTIs which I used to get a lot of, but not anymore since I've been drinking that. I actually think it tastes good too. Take care!

When I get a sore throat, I gargle with it! I do like the taste of it, so I tend to put a little bit in hot water or a little lemon in hot water in the mornings.

If it hurts, I wouldn't do it. You can get good bacteria from probiotics (acidopholus pills - the refrigerated kind) and to ramp up your metabolism, it sounds like you're staying hydrated and eating breakfast, so that's good! From various sources, 5 small meals throughout the day keeps the blood sugar steady, so that's good for your metabolism too. :)

Most of what you said is actually completely false...the breakfast thing, the 5 small meals thing. We need to stop repeating these ridiculous myths.

I use it in my hair. Never eaten/drank it before. But I hate the taste of regular vinegar so I think the same would apply

You must be made of steel! I can't even stand it diluted - makes my eyes water.

I don't really like the taste either. I add a stevia packet and sometimes some cinnamon powder.

I prefer to research via reputable sources;therefore, this is copied from the Mayo Clinic:

Apple cider vinegar for weight loss: Effective?

Drinking apple cider vinegar for weight loss seems far-fetched. Does it work?

Answer

from Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.

Drinking apple cider vinegar for weight loss isn't likely to be effective.

Proponents of the apple cider vinegar diet claim that drinking a small amount of apple cider vinegar before meals or taking an apple cider vinegar supplement helps curb appetite and burn fat. However, there's little scientific support for these claims.

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.

Remember, there's no magic bullet for weight loss. The key to losing weight is burning more calories than you consume. Choose healthy foods — such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein — and include physical activity in your daily routine.

Besides all that is just SOUNDS gross :-P But if it works for you, more power to ya.

its great for more than just weight loss-as previously mentioned.
I take 2 tablespoons in the am before my breakfast and it helps me to not feel bloated throughout the day. It is also awesome for your skin! I have read that it balances out the acid in your stomach (even though we would think it messes it up seeing as it is an acid itself).
I like it :)
November 23, 2012 7:24 PM
I take 2 tbsp with 1 tbsp of flaxseed oil as a salad dressing every day. As mentioned previously it is great for your metabolism and fantastic for skin. Maybe take it with food to reduce the chances of stomach upset and reflux.
November 23, 2012 8:13 PM
Would anyone who is claiming it's great for your metabolism care to explain why?
November 23, 2012 8:15 PM
Be sure to drink it with a straw to protect your teeth from the acidity.
November 23, 2012 8:31 PM
I usually just down a tablespoon by itself or I use a tablespoon on my salad, instead of dressing. I use braggs with the 'mother'
