    My friend literally just argued about this she stated her nutrition told her its great for loss and she thinks i'm just "hating" :D

    Remind her that nutritionists get a bout 6 weeks of training, usually through a correspondence course. If she wants real, truthful, and useful information she should see a Registered Dietician.

    A lot of people say it doesn't help and then some say "now that you know it doesn't help".....with not a single scientific study reference. It doesn't help because a bunch of people said so???? Whatever, I think it does help some. There now it is proven to help.

    That right there is a right purty piece of sciencin'.

    You do understand sarcasm I hope!

    Tried it. All I lost was the will to live! Started counting calories about two months later. So far have lost about 20-25lb.

    I have apple cider vinegar on the shelf for when I make red velvet cake. I don't use it for anything else. I don't need to nutrilise acid because I have a healthy functioning pancreas which does that for me.

    There's some logic to the idea that drinking it will make you feel so sick you won't want to eat and so will lose weight. Sounds like a miserable way to live though.

    It's good for digestion. Acid to break down your food better. It also metabolizes certain organs. When you digest better, most likely you get rid of the food faster, and therefore you lose the fat. It does increase energy. Try it in the morning with glass of water ... it acts better than coffee. So anything that gives energy, your body is burning calories to provide you the energy. All in all, it's not like you're losing hundreds of calories from it... probably 100 or so. A lot of people use it to cure indigestion though.

    What? Metabolizes organ? :o That would be a horrible, horrible thing!

    And better digestion actually would mean better absorption of nutrients, which is a good thing, but that would also mean better absorption of calories.

    I'd rather just use it in my Bourbon BBQ sauce.

    The acid in it is nullified by what the actual hydrochloric acid in your own stomach can do.
    It also metabolizes certain organs.
    What? Why would you want your organs metabolized?

    Digestion is a process to reduce food and drink down to it's simplest components to be ABSORBED by the body. You not "getting rid" of anything at this point. And it does nothing to "lose the fat".
    It does increase energy. Try it in the morning with glass of water ... it acts better than coffee. So anything that gives energy, your body is burning calories to provide you the energy.
    Again what? Lol, you're burning energy to provide energy? How in the world will you ever reduce stored energy in that case?

    With the POSSIBLE exception of helping with indigestion, the rest you've posted is misinformation. Wherever you're getting it from isn't a great source.

    Sadly, I don't think this nonsense is ever going to die. Just this week MSN had an article about how Jennifer Aniston drinks ACV every morning and was basically saying that it's magic and will make us all like her. Uh, no. No thanks. Ridiculous.

    Protect tooth enamel ? I must disagree. My husband used to drink a swallow daily, not diluted, and ended up having dental issues over time, which I am assuming had something to do with it. ?? He read something that made him believe this was a good idea for what I don't know. Just thought I would mention.
