An Apple (or a couple) A day Keeps the Fat Bitch Away....

I'm back to my Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Detox. The last time I did it, it was years ago and it worked. This time, it's promising again cos I'm like about 5 days into it and I feel more energetic. I'm taking it cos I'm 1) A bit of a health freak 2) Afraid of becoming a fat bitch cos I have fat genes at home, my mom's waist-line swelled up to 32 from 23 (reverse the number) after she popped me out but then everyone in the maternal family is massive 3) Trying to feel more energetic cos I feel tired all the time from waking up early. Well, the last time I was on the ACV Detox, I lost quite a bit of weight, so it must be good stuff and I bought the Bragg's Health Book on ACV's benefit and I'm kinda convinced that I ought to be taking it daily despite the funny smell for my "Anti Fat Bitch Regime"...some say it smells like stinky feet but then the good trumps the bad and I simply need to promote its wonders! So here you go: APPLE CIDER VINEGAR IS GOOD FOR YOU!!!  And here's why:
  • It's a natural detox to rid the body of toxins
  • May help with joint pain and stiffness. No stiffness=karma sutra woot!
  • Helps get rid of water retention. no water retention=looks skinnier=no fat face and puffy eyes=pretty
  • Been used for centuries as a natural remedy for heartburn
  • Improves bowel irregularity and constipation. Shit more=flush out toxin=better skin and health
  • Help breakdown fats, so your body can use them instead of store them. So it's Anti Fat Bitch (Should I acronym it as AFB??)
  • Acts as a natural appetite suppressant. No appetite=no snacking=no binging=no fat bitch
  • Helps speed up your metabolic rate. High metabolic=skinny bitch. Low metabolic=fat bitch.
  • May help lower blood glucose levels
  • Helps restore alkaline acid balance of the body. Acidic body environment breeds diseases and it's good to have an alkaline body pH cos it lowers the likelihood of cancer. Things that up the acidic level includes meat so going vege helps!
  • Home remedy for dandruff and acne, taken externally though I wouldn't do it cos otherwise I'll smell like I've just shower myself with stinky feet water....
Convinced? I take it 3 times a day now...or at least twice really. I either pop 2 tablespoon of it into my morning fruit juice (fresh please) or honey water. But when I'm at work, I sometimes just stir it into cold water and gulp it down as water can use it to flavor your salad too. Zero fat. Oh but then you MUST buy the non-filtered, organic raw ACV cos the filtered ones have got all the good stuff in it taken out so it's rubbish. Bragg's my trusted brand. Oh someone just asked what's the stuff in ACV that's so damn good, I was like erm....gimme a second....I googled, I's what's in ACV
  • Potassium – helps to prevent brittle teeth, hair loss and runny noses.
  • Pectin – helps to regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.
  • Malic Acid – gives ACV the properties of being anti-viral, anti-bacterial & anti-fungal.
  • Calcium – helps create strong bones and teeth.
  • Ash – gives ACV its alkaline property which aids your body in maintaining proper pH levels for a healthy alkaline state.
  • Acetic Acid – It appears that this acid slows the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
Wow...I didn't know it's that good either....sounds like miracle drink....just put up with the stinky feet smell, it's worth it!! I swear by it now! Let's see how long I'll go with ACV!

Hi B,
I like to find out from you how this ACV works for you. Yes i wanna feel more engertic and lose just few pounds!

I've heard about the benefits but just not sure how i should start on it. I read you mix with some juices/honey drinks. But it's not a meal replacement right (i dont really buy the idea of meal relacement :P ). And what organic brand ACV do you buy?

Thanks for helping.

Hi Jane,

It's not a meal replacement cos it's essentially not a diet thing but more of a health supplement. I buy Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar and you can get it from GNC, Watsons or cold storage and the small bottle is about 7 bucks. You can just start by drinking honey water mix with 2 tablespoons of ACV to start with. Sometimes I just put it in cold water cos I'm lazy but I have no problem with the taste. If you hate the taste, pop it in orange juice cos it's the easiest to go down. I put it in my salad too! Good as dressing!
