What is the recipe for the Apple Cider Vinegar Diet drink

Question: I read your article on the Apple Cider Vinegar Diet and would really like to try it out. What I really like about this weight loss plan is that I can follow it using natural ingredients from my cupboard. I don’t have to buy expensive diet pills or weight loss supplements, nor do I have to invest time and money in a book. It is also great to know that there is scientific evidence to prove that the Apple Cider Vinegar Diet can help me lose weight! Can you please let me have some more detail on the recipe for the Apple Cider Diet drink as well as instructions on how to follow this diet?

Answer: The Apple Cider Vinegar Diet is a rather easy and cheap diet to follow, and has first been described as a safe home remedy for weight loss centuries ago. You need to take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar about 15 minutes before each meal, i.e. three times a day. Obviously, the strong vinegar taste can be very unpleasant, but it can be softened by adding the vinegar to a glass of water or apple juice and then sweetening the mix with two tablespoons of honey. Some of our clients reported that they actually like the taste of the drink! We all have very different tastes, so it would probably be best if you use the recipe described above as a starting point and then play around with the quantities of water, juice and honey until you like the taste of the drink.

The Apple Cider Vinegar Diet does not prescribe a specific menu or meal plan, but it can only help you lose weight if you follow a healthy diet while you take apple cider vinegar before your meals. Stick to natural, healthy foods and control your food portions. Many of our clients on this diet use our free online food diary to track their daily calorie intake and manage their protein, fat, and carb ratio. Most healthy diet plans suggest a caloric ratio of 20-30% protein, 30% fats, and 40-50% carbs. Make sure you obtain the majority of you fat calories from good fats like olive oil, avocado and nuts. Try to stick to fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grains as the main sources for your carbs. Avoid snacking between meals and have plenty of water.

Finally, if the taste of the vinegar becomes too much to handle, you can always try apple cider vinegar diet pills.

I need a diet pill that can help me stop overeating

Question: I am really tired of spending my money on weight loss pills and supplements that don’t work, but I need help. I am hungry all the time and just can not stop eating. I can’t control myself, but I simply have to lose weight. I need something that works! All help will be appreciated.

Answer: The best diet pill for you depends on your dietary preferences. I will suggest some weight loss pills you may want to consider, but it is important to realize that while these pills may help you lose weight a bit faster; any sustainable weight loss can only be brought about by a permanent change in eating habits for the better. You don’t mention your main “poison”; but if junk food or store-bought snacks are what you keep on craving, I’d suggest you read this review of David Kessler’s the End of Overeating first. Most of these processed food products have been specifically manufactured with just the right mix of fat, salt and sugar to lead to food addiction. The only way to overcome addiction to junk food is to switch to a healthy, balanced diet based on natural foods.

If you still want to proceed in trying out a weight loss pill, you may want to consider Alli. Alli is a FDA approved diet pill that works by blocking fat absorption, but it should only be used if you are seriously sticking to a very low fat diet otherwise the side effects can be embarrassing. You can find more information on this fat blocker in the following review of Alli. Another product that prevents fat absorption is Proactol.

If you are not planning to go on a low fat diet, you may want to try NuPhedrine. NuPhedrine contains bitter orange for its fat burning or thermogenic qualities, along with Hoodia Gordonii as appetite suppressant. As you may know, ephedra has been banned for use in weight loss pills. Many of the popular weight loss products were subsequently reformulated with bitter orange as replacement for ephedra. Although bitter orange is not as strong a stimulant as ephedra is, it is still a stimulant so do not take it unless you are healthy. Pay special attention to any predispositions for heart problems. NuPhedrine can be used with any diet. More information van be found in this review of NuPhedrine.

Does the Acai Berry work for weight loss

Question: I read of so many people that claim to have lost weight using acai berry supplements. Is it true that acai can help you lose weight?

Answer: No. The Acai Berry is a great source of anti-oxidants with the result that does possess anti-aging and cancer fighting properties; but as far as weight loss goes, it really does not offer any real benefits. It is just another fruit and as such can be a great addition to a healthy diet for increased variety. Fruit contain lots of sugar though, so try to restrict your fruit portions to about two per day. Beware of unscrupulous vendors selling Acai products. Some of them falsely claim an association with Oprah Winfrey, and are currently being sued. Many of them imply that Oprah endorsed acai as a weight loss product, which is untrue. There are also a number of vendors out there that automatically ships a monthly supply of acai to you once you’ve signed up, and then make it extremely difficult to cancel the order!
