Apple cider vinegar for fat loss

How does this help?

There are 3 main places where your blood sugar gets stored:

  1. Muscle (where it’s stored as glycogen)
  2. Liver (where it’s stored as glycogen)
  3. The rest is converted to body fat and stored in various areas of your body

Here’s the problem

Your muscle only has the capacity to store 500 grams of glucose and your liver can only store another 100 grams. This leaves the rest to be converted and stored as body fat. Thus, the hormones that control blood glucose levels play a powerful role in controlling fat storage, but the key determine is the level of sugar in the blood – The level of sugar in your bloodstream is what determines how much fat you store in your body. And since nearly all sugar comes from carbohydrate foods (like bread, pasta, rice, etc.), limiting how many carbs you eat is the most effective way to reduce fat.

Apple Cider Vinegar helps with your blood sugar levels.

Want to keep eating the carbs? Try this.

But, targeted supplementing with Apple Cider Vinegar can effectively buffer this process. Recent research has shown that taking 1.5 – 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar before eating a carb-heavy meal improves muscle glucose sensitivity by 19-34% and significantly lowers blood sugar and increases the hormone responses in the bloodstream.

In other words, the carbs (sugar) you eat gets better partitioned into building muscle tissue and not stored as fat. Further, additional studies have shown taking 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar before bed lowered waking blood sugar levels by 4-6% in Type 2 diabetics.

The takeaway tip

Use vinegar in your foods. Or take two tablespoons (30mls) of Apple Cider Vinegar mixed in 300mls of water before your biggest, carbiest, non-post-workout meal of the day.

If that doesn’t sound appetizing to you, try mixing the Apple Cider Vinegar into your salad dressing.
