Hot Apple Cider Vinegar Toddy That Boosts Metabolism & Keeps Pounds Away

 

An apple cider vinegar toddy that can keep the pounds away ? Sound too good to be true !! I read about this drink in a women’s world magazine  ( Cannot find  link to the recipe),  added some ingredients to it and tried it over the holidays. Worked like a charm !!  Although, I did not have time to work out ( with family visiting and all) I did not put on extra pounds :) ! Considering all the extra calories I consumed over thanksgiving I should have packed on a couple. It tasted pretty good, like a warm spicy drink , perfect for a cold morning or evening. I had it twice/day.   I am not promising  it will make you lose weight,  but it could help boost your metabolism and prevent absorption of calories which is pretty good, especially over the holidays. Some added insurance  for holiday weight gain ! Real weight loss needs a dedicated exercise program combined with clean eating !  It ‘s all natural so just try it if you wish –  a nice drink that revs up the metabolism and tastes great to boot ! The original recipe called for lemon, ginger and cinnamon. I added apple cider vinegar and cayenne pepper and gave it some additional oomp ! It turned out to be quite a nice tasting  apple cider vinegar toddy ! You can add some stevia to it if you like it sweet or a teaspoon of maple syrup. Maple syrup helps to boost metabolism too. With the maple syrup it will be about 50 calories which is not bad for a toddy :) ! I like it plain and I sometimes add some stevia to it.   Enjoy and drink it hot or warm. This  helps the spices mix well and  it tastes better too. BTW, this is a non alcoholic toddy !

 

 

Science behind why  the apple cider vinegar toddy may work  !!

Lemon ‘s citric acid stimulates gastric juices to speed digestion and reduce bloat & absorption of calories. Cinnamon reduces craving, helps balance blood sugar and sugar spikes. Ginger revs metabolism by as much as 20 % . Apple cider vinegar helps by curbing appetite. It also helps by preventing sugar spikes similar to cinnamon and stabilizing blood glucose levels ! Studies conducted show acetic acid (the main ingredient in vinegar) was associated with reduced liver lipids and less fat accumulation. As for cayenne pepper, the main active ingredient called capsaicin  is a “thermogenic chemical” which will help speed  metabolism and decrease your appetite.

      Start with one tbsp Pen and then graduate to 2 ! You get used to the tartness after awhile. Warm is the key & the spices tone down tartness. I like it sweet too. Add stevia or the maple syrup. Let me know how it goes :) !
