Question About Apple Cider Vinegar Dosage

Posted by Monika (Las Vegas, NV) on 10/18/2006

I have been taking 2 tablespoons of acv 3 times a day since last 1 week as i am willing to lose weight but i am not losing weight. I will like to know should i continue taking the same strength of acv or i can increase the dose. As in some recipes they say 1/2 cup of acv can be consumed in a day. I will like to know, Mr Ted, if this is safe to be done. Also i wish to get pregnant and if continue to take acv during pregnancy is it safe to do so. I will be grateful if you can help me with my queries. Thanks a lot for your help. It is very nice of you to help people with there problems and will be grateful if you can solve mine problem as well as i am not happy with my obesity

Dear Monika: The best ways to reduce weight is usually not eating in the evening or before you sleep, but you can substitute this with a low calorie meal such as a salad. The second thing is to reduce sweet food in your diet by at least 50%.

ACV does reduce weight to a limited extent by dissolving some fats, but its limited ability necessitates me to recommend other food source to better emulsify and thus dissolve fat, which is the use of granulated powdered lecithin taken both on an empty stomach, 2-3 times a day with one tablespoon and taken along with food with one tablespoon too. To take more ACV, I prefer you add some baking soda to increase buffer the body and increase the eliminations by reduction of constipation and thus water retention. The new dose at near neutral pH, is 2 tablespoons of ACV plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. So if you want to increase to large dose, simply double each in similar portions and the body's pH and buffer should be affected the least with increased dose. Ted
