There’s no weight loss secret that thin people are keeping to themselves: To slim down simply requires sticking to a disciplined diet and exercising consistently.
With that being said, there are certain drinkable concoctions that make it easier to follow a strict eating regimen — and a pre-breakfast beverage of apple cider vinegar, warm water, and honey might just be one of them.
Drinking a mixture of eight ounces of water, one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, and one teaspoon of honey before a meal can help aid in digestion and lower blood glucose levels, but it can also result in the overall calorie reduction of your meal. I know you’re probably reading this with a degree of skepticism, but research shows that apple cider vinegar helps with weight loss by interrupting the body’s digestion of starch; if less starch is broken down then the overall calorie absorption of the meal is disrupted.
But if you’ve ever tried choking apple cider vinegar by itself, you’ll recall that it feels like downing a shot of the cheapest house whiskey. Adding a teaspoon of honey not only makes the drink palatable, but it also endows it with honey’s natural ability to speed up metabolism.
And while the studies supporting apple cider vinegar’s miracle weight loss potential are limited, there are also few studies suggesting any serious negative side effects from drinking apple cider vinegar. Try this mixture a few times a week before breakfast and see what happens!
