This is what changed in those consuming 2 tablespoon (30 ml) of vinegar per day:
- Weight loss: 3.7 lbs (1.7 kg).
- Decrease in body fat percentage: 0.9%.
- Decrease in waist circumference: 0.75 in (1.9 cm).
- Decrease in triglycerides: 26%.
The placebo group actually gained 0.9 lbs (0.4 kgs), and their waist circumference slightly increased.
According to this study, adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your diet can help you lose weight. It can also reduce your body fat percentage, make you lose belly fat and decrease your blood triglycerides.
To date, this is the only human study that has investigated vinegar’s effects on weight loss. Although the study was fairly large and the results are very encouraging, additional studies are needed in different populations.
