    It seems like every week, another trendy weight loss beverage is making headlines... I've recently noticed apple cider vinegar taking the wave.

    From what I have been able to gather, apple cider vinegar is made from crushed apples combined with yeast and bacteria for fermentation. Some alternative medicine experts are saying the acidic substance is a miracle diet remedy, saying that downing 1 tablespoon per day can help you drop a few pounds fast.

    I've been contemplating trying this... Just seeing if anyone has had any luck with this, or if there are any concerns being on a bariatric diet. From what I can find, only those suffering from diabetes should check with there doctor before taking it (due to regulating blood sugar).

    It doesn't seem like there are too many negative effects though.


    Any comments regarding this approach are greatly appreciated.

    Happy Monday :)

    I looked into it and it appears ACV can help with some forms of ulcers (not all I'd imagine). Definitely something I would talk to my doctor first before pursuing.

    I had just seen a lot of friends posting about it on social media and figured and see if anyone on here has tried it, and if so what the results were.

    It certainly is interesting.
