Experimenting with Apple Cider Vinegar

Many of you that have seen my pictures may not think anything of it, but lately I have been insecure about weight gain in my tummy area. I weigh myself on a weekly basis at my local gym and have noticed weight gain around March & April time frame. During that time, I dealt with a lot of stress that stemmed from having to relocate due to a rise in rent. The move resulted in me having to drop my spring semester due to time consumed looking for an apartment which consisted of me finding a realtor, contacting, scheduling, and viewing the apartment listing. I even took time off from working out due to winter and having to canceling my old gym membership due to the move. That alone limited my options to combat stress because it is only so much you can do without a gym membership.

Because of this weight gain, I  researched other means of losing weight in the tummy area other than working out. As a fitness guru that is deeply into running and cycling, I have taken supplements throughout the years that may have kept my weight in check. Do not quote me on this, but I believe a previous supplement that I use to take called ‘Endurox Excel’ influenced maintaining my weight. However, it is no longer on shelf at Vitamin Shoppe, so I’m looking for other alternatives.

I have researched several ways to combat tummy fat. Many foods such as eggs, vegetables, nuts, and avocados, but one in particular kept popping up which is Apple Cider Vinegar! Apple Cider Vinegar has gotten a lot of buzz about how it assists with losing weight and reducing belly fat , so I seeked it out while doing my weekly shopping. While shopping at the local Dollar Tree, I found and picked up a 32 ounce bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar, which costed only a dollar! With it not being Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother, I questioned if it would get the job done, but hoped to get Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother on a later date. Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother contains the proteins and bacteria that make it so effective and healthy, per Danette May. Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar is full of probiotics too, which means it can help with digestion and prevent constipation. About a week later while already into drinking two tablespoons a day, I purchased Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother while at Jewel – Osco.

With this experiment with Apple Cider Vinegar, I hope to continue my regular fitness activities which I keep up with well to help assist with weight loss in the tummy area.

  1. I don’t know about the losing weight part, but I do strongly feel that real apple cider vinegar even without the mother greatly contributes to overall good health. Just be sure to read the labels, because just as some “honey” is sugar water with artificial honey flavor added, they also make fake apple cider vinegar that is not made from apples. You can make your own apple cider vinegar rather easily at home, btw.
