Sipping Cider Through a Straw

The Fat Flush Foods : The World's Best Foods, Seasonings, and Supplements to Flush the Fat From Every BodyFolk Medicine     Apparently apple cider vinegar a day keeps the fat away, one of many uses besides dying Easter Eggs and cleaning coffee makers.  According to the book The Fat Flush Foods by Ann Louise Gittleman, apple cider "flushes the fat from every body".  Apple Cider Vinegar became popular in the late 1950's when Dr. D.C. Jarvis talked about it in his best-selling book Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor's Guide To Good Health.  It contains acetic acid which stimulates the metabolism and several qualities that create an ideal chemical balance for fat burning.  To reap these benefits the apple cider vinegar should be organic and unpasteurized, with no chemicals or preservatives added.  The vinegar should be a light brown color and have cobweb-like floating substances in it, which is referred to as "the mother".  It doesn't sound too appetizing, I know.  But used as a salad dressing or a teaspoon or two of it added to a glass of water doesn't taste bad at all.  I had a glass today for breakfast and I was full all morning.  After seeing the list of benefits, I found several Weight Watchers recipes that contain apple cider vinegar. They are listed below and hopefully, those of you who do not have Weight Watchers e-tools can see the links.  If not, I can pass on the recipes.  Gittleman's book suggests using it for a pH balancing bath or using it as a hair rinse.  Who knew?

Acetic Acid-stimulates metabolism, lowers blood sugar by as much as 30%, keeps appetite in check-slows stomach emptying

I tried this apple cider thing, but did not last long with it. I might have to go try it.
