Apple Cider Vinegar Weight Loss
By Sharon Irish
I drink this Apple Cider Vinegar Weight Loss Drink every morning and it has done wonders for me:
This Apple Cider Vinegar Weight Loss Drink Recipe actually burns fat without exercise! It detoxes the body, provides energy and has many more health benefits too.
Since discovering this apple cider weight loss drink I have seen a huge change in my weight loss, but the beauty of this drink is that it does so much more than help you to lose weight!
I have seen changes to my skin, my hair and feel changes in my overall well-being thanks to the ingredients that I put together with the apple cider vinegar.
I no longer have a stuffy nose and sore throat throughout winter, if I do happen to catch a cold then it only lasts for a couple of days and the symptoms are not too bad. I have not had to stay in bed ill at all this year and I am sure it is because I am protecting my body daily with this drink. I used to spend at least a few weeks on and off per year unable to move from the couch because of a severe cold or bouts of flu.
Not only does it seem to ward off those nasty germs, but it is a wonderful detox drink, flushing away toxins in the morning and keeping me fresh for the day.
There are thousands of weight loss and detox drinks products on the market and they range from average prices to very pricey indeed – the thing is though, you don’t need them!
That’s right, all the hype about certain products with a hefty price tag really doesn’t need to worry you because you can make your own apple cider weight loss or apple cider detox drink at home that will probably work better and will cost much less.
Not only can it save you money but if you make the weight loss detox drink yourself then you know exactly what you have put in it, there will be no need to read through a long list of unpronounceable ingredients and worry what they actually are.
There is a YouTube Video for this recipe as well as the full recipe and method, a little further down but for now, let me explain why the ingredients in this drink are so important:

Recipe for Apple Cider Vinegar Weight Loss Drink:
100 ml Boiling Water
1 tsp Honey
2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp lemon juice, water and fresh ginger mix (2 tbsp chopped fresh ginger mixed in blender with 200 ml lemon juice and 200 ml water).
1 pinch – 1/8 tsp turmeric powder.
1 pinch – 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper.
250 ml cold water.
Firstly I make sure that I have enough of my fresh ginger, lemon juice and water mix – I use my nutribullet to really finely blend the ginger with the lemon juice, and the water just helps it to blend more easily.
I pour 100 ml boiling water into a measuring cup and then add in 1 tsp honey, mixing together.
In a large glass, I pour 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (with mother on label is best) and then 2 tbsp of my ginger/lemon juice/water mix. I add in the turmeric and cayenne pepper (to taste – it is best to work up to start with a pinch and then work up to 1/8 tsp I find).
Then I add 250 ml cold water into the measuring cup with the boiling water and honey, mix it again and then pour this into the large glass and drink it immediately while it is still warm.
