Are you on the Keto diet or a low carb diet? Maybe you’re not losing weight and you’re wondering why. You could also be suffering from other body issues and not really understand why.
I’m here to tell you that Apple Cider Vinegar is the answer to all your problems. Hear me out because I know I may sound a bit crazy. ACV has nothing to do with nutrition it has to do with the acetic acid. Keep reading to discover how apple cider vinegar works for weight loss.
It’s important to note that acetic acid lowers the output of insulin. Acetic acid is also known to improve insulin resistance. It also lowers blood sugar and improves the A1C (average blood sugars for 3 months). Acetic acid makes up about 5–6% of apple cider vinegar (Healthline).
Need More Acid as You Age
As you age, your body needs more acid. As you age, your body becomes more alkaline. What does this mean? This simply means you have a PH of 7 or greater. Once your body is too alkaline, you have a PH problem, which means you can’t absorb nutrients like you used to.
Too Much Protein?
If you eat too much protein, your body needs help flushing out all the extras. You can use Apple cider vinegar helps to flush it out. Too much protein often results in intestinal discomfort and even indigestion. If you were to calculate your macronutrients for the day, protein should account for 10-35% of your daily macros. ACV can help do the following:
- Helps to cleanse your body
- Helps to absorb minerals
- Helps the immune system
I also feel the need to mention this… if you get nauseated when you eat too much fat or protein you could also benefit from an enzyme digestion supplement. This will help you break down and digest the healthy food you are consuming without pain and discomfort. It makes a real difference!
Drink to Enjoy Before You Eat
- Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 teaspoons in an 8-ounce glass of water
- Organic Lemon Juice
- Cranberry Juice from Whole Cranberries (teaspoon) just make sure there is no sugar added. You can skip this ingredient if you are strict keto.
Liquid stevia is also a good way to sweeten the drink. This works well for someone drinking this drink that likes it a bit sweeter. Keep in mind that you don’t need to have Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, you can use whatever brand your store sells. Organic works best because then it doesn’t have the pesticides.
