Follow up: Apple Cider Vinegar Experiment

So about two weeks ago, I decided to drink Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) three times a day and take CLA Safflower Oil daily.  I had no problem swallowing the CLA Safflower Oil.  On the other hand, Apple Cider Vinegar was awful tasting!  The taste of ACV is comparable to nothing I have ever put in my mouth before.  I am pretty sure that is ACV tastes like a wet, sweaty and salty saturated athlete’s sock that has an after taste that lingers even after chasing it with 16 ounces of water.  I first tried mixing the ACV in 8 ounces of water and that was bad; then drinking a shot of ACV by itself was even worse.  If you trial this ACV, I would recommend mixing it in water, plugging your nose and chug.  Try not to inhale the vinegar, it will burn your lungs.

Alright, so what results did I get from drinking the ACV?

  1. I had an immediate bowel movement the first, second and third time I drank the volatile chemical.
  2. I noticed no change to my energy levels.
  3. I had no difference in my alertness or mood and my sugar cravings did not increase or decrease.
  4. I did not mix anything with the ACV other than water.
  5. I took 2 teaspoons of ACV when I got up for the day, then before lunch and supper.  I took the CLA Safflower Oil within a half an hour of getting up for the day.
  6. I did lose 2 pounds during the 1 week that I did this experiment.  However, I was surfing the crimson wave and that may have contributed to the loss.
  7. As far as measurements go, I am terrible at getting measurements in the same spot each week.  I go by how my clothes fits.  Check out the picture in this post to see if you notices a difference.  My waist does look a little smaller.

In my opinion, my weight loss is a result of following the low carb and high fat life style.
