Apple Cider Vinegar Curbs Appetite

I was researching eating apples on a diet, then I spun off unto apple cider vinegar, and it's many benefits. To my surprise I found proof of some of the claims made for it!

Having vinegar with meals even mixed in a glass of water before or a salad dressing during may lessen damage from high carbs while curbing appetite and possibly weight gain. In a new Swedish study, downing 2 to 3 tablespoons of vinegar with white bread cut expected rises in insulin and blood sugar by about 25%. Surprisingly, subjects also felt fuller.

This study confirms research by Jennie Brand-Miller, of the University of Sydney in Australia, finding that eating 4 teaspoons vinegar in a salad dressing with a meal lowered blood sugar by as much as 30%. By: Jean Carper
