weight loss hack

Hi Beauties!

Losing weight doesn’t have to be time-consuming or complicated. In fact, it couldn’t be simpler!

To prove it, I’ll be sharing a favourite Weight Loss Hack every day this week. I want to show you that you can eat for the body you want even by making a few simple, effortless changes in your diet.

Even if you change nothing else, these hacks will likely get you a bit closer to the body of your dreams.

Let’s get started, shall we?

Weight Loss Hack #1 of 7: Drink Apple Cider Vinegar

People have sworn by the weight-defying power of vinegar for hundreds of years—and recent research seems to agree.

To begin with, vinegar is an extremely low-calorie way to make our food yummier. If you’re not sure how to use it, you can check out my recipes for all kinds of inspiration. 

And in high enough doses, vinegar (which is essentially diluted acetic acid) can promote AMPK production in human cells. AMPK is the enzyme that tells our bodies to start burning fat stores and up our energy production.

A double blind trial of 150 “overweight” Japanese men and women specifically looked at the effects of apple cider vinegar on weight loss. One group received a high dose of vinegar (two tablespoons per day). One group drank only one tablespoon per day. And a placebo group drank an acidic beverage that didn’t actually contain any acetic acid.

The 150 test subjects otherwise went about their normal lives. They changed nothing else. And within just one month, both vinegar groups were showing significant weight loss—over two kilos (five pounds) in twelve weeks—compared to the placebo. They lost more and more every month, while the placebo group had gained weight by month three.

So, what do you have to lose? (Except those extra pounds, of course!)
