We’re willing to try just about anything in an effort to shed those extra holiday pounds, so a few of us decided to make a New Year’s Resolution and take two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before lunch and dinner. A recent Arizona State University study found that consuming two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before lunch and dinner can help non-dieters lose, on average, half a pound per week. The acetic acid found in vinegar reduces the activity of enzymes used in carbohydrate digestion, in turn allowing fewer calories from the starches to be absorbed by the body. The study also revealed that a serving of vinegar before a meal can reduce post-eating blood sugar increases by 36 to 81%, making you feel more satiated and less likely to continue on with dessert.
