fitbodylife A 2006 review article in the "Medscape Journal of Medicine" concludes vinegar may have a role in blood sugar control and appetite suppression. Other studies show vinegar may also promote weight loss by preventing fat accumulation through its impact on insulin secretion. Individuals with type 2 diabetes or who are pre-diabetic may benefit from vinegar's apparent ability to stabilize glucose. A 2007 study reported in "Diabetes Care" followed 11 people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but who were not taking insulin. Every night for 3 nights they ingested either 2 tablespoons of either apple cider vinegar or water plus some cheese. The results showed drinking vinegar at bedtime had a significant and favorable impact on waking, or fasting, glucose concentrations even among the subjects who were taking hypoglycemic medications during the study. By promoting stable blood sugar vinegar may help prevent the sugar crashes that encourage you to wolf down the nearest source of carbohydrates, shooting your blood sugar back up and starting the cycle all over again. In the 2005 study of vinegar and satiety, the scientists also evaluated blood samples to determine vinegar's impact on glucose and insulin levels. The low and intermediate vinegar groups had significantly lower blood glucose levels at 15 and 30 minutes, which continued to be measurable at 90 minutes for the high vinegar group. Similarly, the intermediate group enjoyed lower insulin levels at 15 minutes, the high group at 30 minutes. In a 2004 study in "Diabetes Care," insulin-resistant individuals who drank vinegar and water followed by a meal enjoyed significantly improved insulin sensitivity compared to a control group. The study authors concluded that vinegar's effects may be similar to those of some popular diabetes drugs. Of course given the connection between insulin levels and fat storage, these results support vinegar's use as a fat burning food. 2y
  •   c0urtney321 So freaking good! Love it on salads, and even in water! 2y
  •   rita_a Is it working for you? 2y
  •   gymgirlxoxo You don't put it on chicken when it's baking? 2y
  •   fitbodylife @jacki3ee most clinical trials show its successful by drinking it. I think by heating it it loses some of it's benefits 2y
  •   andy_fitlife @loved_blessed be careful, it weakens your teeth enamel and you definitely don't want that!! You can have a nice body but if you're smile is messed up..... :/ 2y
  •   andy_fitlife @loved_blessed yep, but just mix it in with a glass of water or something else so it won't be so abrasive. I mix it with my protein smoothies and it's great 2y
  •   andy_fitlife @my_duong not at all!! But my protein smoothies are loaded so it's well camouflaged in there. Ugh! I tried doing the vinegar+a bit of water mix for some time.....worst thing ever. Give it a try in your shake and let me know how you like it though 2y
