If you have ever browsed the Internet for tips to lose weight, you have probably come across a few articles that state the benefits of adding apple cider vinegar (ACV) to your diet. But before you add the ingredient to your weight loss plan, there are some things that you must remember, says health coach Luke Coutinho. In a detailed video on the subject, he has explained that while ACV aids weight loss, it is only a small part of the process. In the video, he said, “While ACV has several benefits, you must also know the side effects that you can have of consuming ACV if it does not suit you, you overdo it or do it the wrong way.”
Weight loss: Can apple cider vinegar help? Explaining that there is no “magic pill” that can help you lose weight, he said, “Losing weight is getting your hormones in balance. It is a product of a good lifestyle, eating foods that suit your body, doing exercises and recovering the right way, improving your sleep, and looking after your stress levels.”
“So, can ACV help you lose weight? Absolutely not. But can it play a role in your weight loss process? Can it help you lower your blood sugar levels? Can it help you lower your blood pressure? Can it help improve your digestion? Absolutely yes —if it suits you,” he explained.
