    Acetic acid turns on genes that make proteins that break down fat.

    I'm glad to hear this, if it proves to be true. One of the curses of our modern world is that we're often jerked back & forth about what the experts say is good to eat, and what's bad. It seems to change every other day.

    I've used vinegar & olive oil as a salad dressing since I was a little kid. I've never use the prepared dressings like Ranch, and Thousand Island, etc. I also love to pour vinegar over salmon, of all things, a practice my grandmother taught me. I do recommend you try it!

    I have tried this, and I only use it for salad dressing now; drinking it is just does not go well with me! It is supposedly good for your skin, your PH, and claims are that it does assist with fat reduction. It also contains something called "the mother" which has implied micro-health benefits. can't hurt...

    Not so weird. It's very common for the Brits to pour vinegar on their fish and chips. Your way is just healthier because you're not frying the fish.

    Diluted cider vinegar would be palatable than regular white vinegar. I'll sometimes drink a glass of diluted vinegar to suppress my appetite in the evening.

    I put a tablespoon of vinegar with my breakfast V-8 juice. I also use lime juice and tabasco sauce. Sort of a Virgin Mary.

    It slows down the absorption during digestion.

    By itself, I doubt it would reduce fat, but it is a part of my over all routine to reduce body fat and build lean muscle.

    I learned to use balsamic vinegar from both my late and current Italian partners. I still use regular vinegar for some purposes, but balsamic, which must come from Modena in Italy to be genuine (not unlike how real French champagne can only come from the Champagne region), is truly wonderful.

    Have any of you tried balsamic? I recommend you do.

    I have mentioned at another post that after looking at a recent photo taken of me at a party, I decided to see a specialist and try to reduce my weight. This was a month ago. At my last appointment the specialist said that I have lost five kilo, but I have already bottomed out. I need to lose a lot more.
    So away with the full cream milk, instead it's semi-skimmed, smaller breakfasts, brown bread instead of white, fruit instead of cookies, more walking and cycling, and I'm considering becoming a member of a gym for supervised weight-loss exercises.
    But vinegar? I have once read that vinegar is a kind of "miracle substance" capable of benefitting many areas, from cleaning windows to curing certain illness, as well as sustaining good health.
    But reducing body fat? Well, I'm not surprised. I'm going to give it a try.

    NNJfitandbi saidi thought it had tons of calories and gave you ulcers, interesting

    Au contraire! Vinegar is all good for heart burn and acid reflux. I was on meds for acid reflux....doc said I would be for the rest of my life. Turns out the problem was caused by LOW acidity in the stomach ...so the stomach wasnt digesting the food properly...so the undigested food churned and grew bacteria....vinegar and yogurt with live culture corrected teh problem....no more meds...no more reflux problems

    I guess salt & vinegar potato chips don't really help.

    NNJfitandbi saidi thought it had tons of calories...

    That made me curious to check the label on a bottle of ordinary white vinegar we have in the cupboard here. It says:

    calories: 0
    total fat: 0
    sodium: 0
    sugars: 0
    total carbohydrate: 0
    protein: 0

    Basically the same as water, with which this particular brand is mixed for a 5% acidity rating. I don't think this kind of vinegar is about to make us overweight.

    I then checked several of our balsamic vinegar bottles from Modena. All the same as above, except they each had 4-5g of sugars, which brought their calories up to 20-25 per 1 tablespoon serving.

    It seems if you're watching calories & sugar closely, choose ordinary vinegar over balsamic. But even balsamic doesn't have "tons" of calories.

    This is VERY true! If I ever have heartburn, I chug some apple cider vinegar. It goes down less smooth than chugging tequilla but it clears up the heartburn IN SECONDS!

    Apple cider vinegar has been used for years for almost every condition imaginable, including weight loss. It's interesting to see the remedy being proven by traditional research as well.

    I just had an argument this evening with a friend who's a pharmacist, about the validity of "natural remedies". Thank you so much for sharing this article. I can't wait to show him icon_smile.gif
