Last November I started another self-experiment to see if vinegar consumption would lead to any weight loss in me. I quit after nine weeks instead of sticking it out for the entire 12-week trial. I just got tired of it and hadn’t seen any weight loss. And I ran out of apple cider vinegar.
Results? No change in weight.
A Japanese study had shown loss of 2.2-4.4 lb in Japanese overweight study subjects. Maybe it didn’t work for me because I wasn’t overweight. Or because I’m not Japanese. Or because I chose to do the experiment over the Christmas-New Years’ holiday, a notorious over-eating time of year.
Nevertheless, the vinegar option would be reasonable for an overweight person to try.
PS: I blogged recently about how vinegar diminishes blood sugar elevations after meals that contain complex carbohydrates. So an overweight type 2 diabetic would be a perfect study subject.
