RECIPE: Apple Cidar Vinegar Diet

hagar_ONTSeptember 11, 2002

I'm posting this again since weekly I get tons and tons of inquiries about the apple cidar vinegar diet.

Here is what I did and what is available to you.

I bought regular apple cidar vinegar from the grocery stone. It tastes nasty so I'm warning you in advance. To compensate for the unpleasant taste I mix one tablespoon of ACVinegar into a glass of warm apple juice. Measure in 2 tablespoons of honey.

You can also buy the tablets at the drug store if you think you can't manage the liquid, but the liquid works FASTER that tablets as the tablets have to dissolve in your system first.

Directions for usage.

TAKE WITH EACH MEAL-that's 3 times a day. It won't work unless you take it with food. Its designed to burn up the fat taking into the body's system with foot.

I then took the same drink with an evening snack. I did this and lost 10 pounds in the very first week. I continued to take the liquid until I lost a total of about 55-60 pounds.


I'm not talking about going to the gym everyday and doing a workout. I just went for a walk everyday. Get out of your can and get moving...use your legs for what they were meant to do...

Health benefits

I felt better, dropped from size 22 to a size 12 in less than 6 months. I have an annual checkup and I'm 52 years old this year and look if you seriously want to get in shape try it. You have nothing to lose.

I hope this helps anyone who wants to know. I don't like to have to do the individual emails that keep coming in...sorry i just don't have the time to answer them..

Not everyone can tolerate this diet, certainly not if they have a hiatal hernia.

I have the book, "Folk Medicine" by Dr. D.C. Jarvis.
He is from Barre, Vermont. The book that I have is old. So, he could be dead now. He talks about using 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of honey to a glass of water (sipping on this drink throughout the meal), for many ailments. Anybody interested in the apple cider diet should read the book. He tells how couples who have never had children, were able to have them. Also, he talks about food poisoning and the apple cider was good to take in a glass of water before going out to eat, to avoid problems. He talks about pregnant mothers taking the apple cider solution and having more alert, smarter babies. He also says some people cannot tolerate the vinegar and tells you what to substitute. This is a must book to read!!

I too tried the Vinegar Diet, and it works Great!...
It made me feel refreshed and renewed,...
and it can actully taste pretty good!... Like apple soda!..

I got it from a newer book, and I guess there are different versions you can try,... All you need is 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar (unfilter is best), and 1 tablespoon of honey for the first week or two, in 8-10 oz. of water (cold water)... also you can try it with seltzer to begin with it taste great! like apple soda. Take it just 15-20 minutes before each meal. The liquid should work better than tablets, because they don't desolve fully, the liquid work faster and better. You can give the tablets a try when you can't have liquid vinegar.

The Vinegar Diet It Really Does Work!...

Have you actually tried the viegar diet,.... I absolutly first hand know that Vinegar Diets help you lose weight, faster,...while also renewing your body and organs, also invigerates you and makes you feel and look better than ever.

I tried the vinegar diet and lost about 40 lbs. in about 2 months. It's not cooky or far fetched. All you have to do is try it,... See for yourselves that it absolutly works,.... all you do is have it 3 times a day once 15-20 minutes before each meal, and no you don't take straight vinegar, you put only 1 tablespoon of unfilter vingar (is best, from the health food store or grocery store) in 8-10 oz. of water, to start you can even have it with a tablespoon or teaspoon of honey, for the first week or two,... you can also use seltzer water to start for a week or more, it taste great actully, (and no I am not crazy) like apple soda. You don't even have to diet much, just try eating like you do, but of course it will work better if watch your diet a little,.. don't eat much sweets (But you can use natural sweetners like Stevia it's good for you & taste great, good for weight lose & diabetics), also cut back on fats that are bad for you (but you can have an avacodo a day, it's a good fat that actully helps you lose weight. Moderate exercise does help speed up things too, like any diet 15-30 minutes a day of walking works, and don't for forget to eat your fruits and veggies.

As you'll find out the Vinegar diet actully does work,... so please don't put it down. Just give it a try! You'll like it, and you'll feel & look younger.

I did this diet several yrs. ago and when I stopped it because of my job, I slowly gain the weight back.

But not to worry I'm going back to the viegar diet.

Thanks, Lillian

Well, today is my first day on this diet. I have drank 3 doses of this nasty tasting drink--I am determined tho! :)
I just came to the conclusion that I am suppose to drink yet 1 more drink of this stuff, with a snack later on this evening :((
Oh well, I will keep posting my comments & progress.
Thanks! I'm very anxious to see if I can loose 10 pounds in the first week or so also!

I mixed up apple cidar vinegar in a little 8oz.bottle with 1 tbsp. of honey; that way I was able to take it to work with me. I measure out 2 tsp. of vinegar mix and add it to about 8-10 oz. of water; then I hold my nose and drink it I must say, I HOPE this works!

There are so many different post - some say 1 tbsp some say 1-2 tsp. I am going to start this weekend. I know I can not handle a tbsp, so I will start slow and see how that works.
Good luck, please keep the post up with your progress

OK tried something a little different. I mixed it with apple juice - a whole lot better, I had no problem getting it down. O course I am only using 1 tsp instead of 2 I have to work my way up to 2 tsp. When i go to the store I am going to get some apple cider I bet this will work great, but we will see - I will keep you all posted.

I find it intriguing. Being 61 yr old diabetic II, heavily overweight (250 lbs)I am giving it a try for 2 months. Staring today on 2 Tsp+honey+water. Keep your fingers crossed. You will hear from me weekly. Tried other disgusting and painfull things, so why not this one. And just read this: Vinegar May Aid in Fat Loss
Study Shows Ancient Medical Remedy May Help Modern Struggle Against Obesity
By Kelli Miller Stacy
WebMD Health News
Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD

June 22, 2009 -- The latest weapon in the battle of the bulge may be as close as your kitchen pantry.

Ordinary household vinegar -- used to make oil-and-vinegar salad dressings or pickles -- appears to turn on genes that help fight fat, researchers in Japan report.

Vinegar has long been touted as a cure-all for many ills. The substance has been used a folk medicine remedy since ancient times. Modern medical evidence is slowly adding credence to some of the claims. In recent years, research has suggested that the main chemical in vinegar, called acetic acid, can help control blood pressure and blood sugar.
The current findings suggest that vinegar might help a person lose weight or fight obesity. Tomoo Kondo and colleagues gave acetic acid or water to mice via a stomach tube. All were provided a high-fat diet to eat normally.

Researchers found that the mice developed a lot less body fat (up to 10% less) than mice who didnÂt receive the vinegar compound. The amount of food eaten by the mice was not affected.

ItÂs believed that acetic acid turns on genes that produce proteins that help the body break down fats. Such an action helps prevent fat buildup in body, and thwarts weight gain.

The findings are scheduled to be published in the July 8, 2009 issue of Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Well, I started this on June 24th and today is July 3--The scales at the dr's office said I weighed 192 and I weighed myself at home today and the scales say 187--I didn't walk or exercise or anything, so this coming week I am going to force myself to walk at least 3 times @ 20 minutes and see how much better I can do. The drink tastes god-awful! But it is worth it! :^))

Good luck. I to have tried all types of diets and nothing seem to work. I also saw something on tv about mice and vinegar and how the mice lost weight, that when I decided to give this a try.

I've recently learned of this diet thru a family friend who lost 30 lbs. in 2 months. She said to have 2 tablespoons of ACV 2 to 3 times a day and with an apple before bed. I've had no problems with the ACV ( I mix with a 1/2 glass of applejuice) but I'm just a morning mocha drinker, snacker throughout the day and maybe a full meal at am I drinking this stuff for nothing because its never before an actual meal?? Any thoughts would be helpful. I just assumed the vinegar would float around all day and help break down the fat I consumed.

I want to know if the amount of honey needs to be 1 tbsp or could it be less, is it just for helping with the taste of the vinegar or is there a weight loss help with it also..I also started using a light vinegar dressing and that really lowered the calories...any suggestions would be helpful!!

I'm glad to see this is so current from 2002 to yesterday posting! I've been reading about this for insulin dependent diabetics/overweight. I wonder if you could mix the ACV with unsweetened applesauce and honey. It seems that way it would go down faster; plus I have applesauce on hand!!!

I just turned 60 and have been struggling to take some weight off, while on vacation a cousin shared with me about taking vinegar just to feel better but when I went to the Health Foods store the clerk told me how she had lost 75 lbs with it. So my husband and I started it last week but untill today I was unaware that we were to take it 3X a day just before we ate. So today we start it 3+ times a day. So I will come back and share how we do.

Hello everyone! I've enjoyed reading everyone's comments about this diet. I just got back from visiting my parents in the midwest and my mother told me about the vinegar diet. She had a paperback book that she showed me about the diet. The book is called The Vinegar Diet by Emily Thacker. I plan to purchase a copy soon. I believe the proportion of vinegar and honey are two tsp. each before meals in water. I tried the drink today and it seems not too bad. Will start on the diet tomorrow. Good luck everyone! Maria

I started this diet last Wednesday and have lost 3 pounds. I mix 2 teaspoons of vinegar and 2 teaspoons of honey with 2-3 ounces of orange juice. It tastes better than mixing it with water.

Hi ppl!
Great to see this diets still around. I first heard n subscribed to a diet similar to this back in the early 90' I'm 38 hrs old n had 2 kids..both 4.5kg (10pounds). The diet I went on back then was vinegar, garlic n lemon... It worked but really, the garlic killed my breath... So glad to try out this one.... I'm a reg nurse, specialized in cardiac! Can tell u that I think the vinegar increases ur metabolism the natural way, so prob helps to increase fat burning too. But there is no other remedy to doing exercise so to those who are hoping there's a replacement...there isn't. I'm going to start this drink with exercise...and will let you know the outcome as I progress too.... Current wt I think I am is approx 63 kg! I'm only 155cm tall, n live in Australia... Good luck ladies!!

I also read the book Folk Medicine when I was a young teenager. I take apple cider vinigar with honey in raspberry tea every time I feel a cold coming on. Gave the same thing to my kids and we all had a lot less colds. I buy the best vinigar I can find and even give a little to my dog. Less flea's. This is just a good healthy thing to include in our diet. I'm not overweight and eat a lot

I too am beginning this vinegar diet. I began Monday 4/30/12 and I feel I have lost some weight. I did weigh yesterday and my mistake was not weighing before starting, but I had just came from the doctor and I knew something had to be done. I have tried just about every diet that can be imagined and no luck. I am just miserable and I know loosing weight would help so many issues. Being 66 years old is not an easy task. Seem to be healthy with a little back issue but other than those problems I am ready to go. Wish me luck.

Hi I have been on the ac diet for 5 days! I have not seen any results at all not even a lb. I am not giving up bc its too early to tell. But I am woundering if im doin it right. I take 2 teaspoons of str8 ac vinegar b4 meals no mixing of water or anything bc I actually like the taste of vinegar. Does it only work when mixed with water? I can really use some help on this. I am 28 n weight 280 lbs. Which is very uncomfortable for me. I hope to get a reply

Hello everyone,
Im new to here. I was interested to hear what you all had to say about the ACV diet. Well done to all of you that have got such wonderful results already. I do hope you all keep it up as it will be worth it.
I have been on diets before on got weight off but put it back on once i stopped like some of you suggested and on others i got so far and stopped losing weight too.
I have a bulging disc in my back so have to get very respectful of myself and get rid of the weight now.
Someone asked about haitus hernia problems. I havent had any problems so far.
I have been using ACV now for a few weeks but have only been taking one dose of 2 teaspoons of ACV in grape juice once a day. Even with this small dose i cannot believe the health changes it has brought on. I have a clearer chest and vision. My large tummy is shrinking, i have more energy too.
I also put 2 tablespoons of ACV in my bath water and settle in for a long soak. Now all those odd little itchy spots have disappeared and by letting the water in my ears the serious eczema itch i had in there has gone away too. For those who care about how their hair looks, the ACV in the bath hasnt harmed my hair at all and in fact it is now much softer and just feels great.
Someone asked about trips to the toilet. If anything my trips have decreased and to keep the tone in the toilet, movements are changing to what i remember they should be from younger days.
Good luck folks and dont let the weight win!

I am starting this tomorrow. I have some vinegar and honey so here goes.

My Mother and I did a vinegar diet when I was in my late 20's. It consisted of vinegar, honey, lesathin (sp) oil all mixed, vitamin B12 complex and Kelp tablets. We both did very well on this. I have looked for anyone who might know of this form of the vinegar diet to no avail. I can't remember the measurements of the liquids. If anyone else does I would be grateful.

Ive started this 3 days ago, with 1 tablespoon of acv for 8oz of water. The taste was so horrible, so today i did 3 glasses with apple juice and didnt use 8 oz i used about 5oz per 1 tablespoon of acv, & it was better than the water. Does using apple juice opposed to water make a difference?

Just drank my first glass today. EW! I added so much mio to the concoction to cover the taste. I will definitely buy some apple juice tonight to see if that works better. Anyway, I used 2 tsp. Braggs apple cider and 2 tsp. honey I bought from Amish mixed in with a glass of water. I will let you all know if this works for me. I have so much weight I have to shed from having my last child. It hasn't been easy like it was with my first especially now that I am older. This will be interesting to see. :)

I mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in about 8-12 ounces of regular or spicy V-8. Seems to mask the taste enough to make palatable. At least it doesn't gag me now LOL.

I had been coughing harshly last year for 3 months and even contracted colds. That's the first time I had those for 3-month long. I drank cough syrups and tablets to ease them just like I usually do. In my surprise, it still persisted. My sister advised me to drink apple cider vinegar (with the 'mother') diluted with water and pour 2 tbsp. of honey...and it worked!

I researched a lot about ACV and found out that it gives a lot of benefits for optimal well-being. Since then, I have been drinking ACV with organic honey daily and never felt sick.

Just a reminder, in choosing your ACV choice, select the raw and unfiltered one and with the label "With the Mother" (this is a strand-like appearance that plays a major role in giving you a healthy body).
