Does Apple Cider Vinegar Aid In Weight Loss

Does Apple Cider Vinegar Aid In Weight Loss? It’s highly likely that you have heard of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and the endless list of benefits it supposedly has. It’s definitely been one of the most popular health buzz words over the last few years, coming up in conversations about skin care, heart health, weight loss, and more. It almost seems to be one of those “fix-all” ingredients (kind of like coconut oil being the said solution for everything). But today, we’re going to focus the primary ways it may benefit you in your weight loss journey… 1.) Apple Cider Vinegar can help maintain normal blood sugar levels.  How does this relate to you in your weight loss journey? Out-of-whack blood sugar levels lead to hormonal fluctuations, cravings (you know when you feel like a raveous creature), poor sleep, and more. One study found vinegar consumption to decrease blood sugar levels by an average of 31% after eating white bread (which normally will quickly spikes blood sugar). In another study, scientists gave ACV to diabetic rats for four weeks and found that it significantly reduced their blood sugar levels. Talk about a simple biohack! 2.) Apple Cider Vinegar can help increase satiety.  Studies have shown that taking ACV can help increase your level of satiety, or feeling of being full, which can clearly work in your favor when trying to lose weight! Feeling full can consequently help you to consume less calories and more easily control your cravings. One study found that, on average, people who incorporated ACV into their daily regimen consumed almost 300 LESS calories per day compared...

Are “Natural Flavors” Actually Safer Than Artificial Sweeteners?!

Should you be concerned when consuming products with Natural flavors in them? How do you know which ones are truly natural, and which ones contain additional ingredients? These are the questions that need to be addressed, with “natural flavors” being the 4th most common ingredient on food labels these days (right behind salt, water, and sugar). The Live Training video above will give you the 411 on this trending topic. But if you’d rather read than watch, you can find the details below! First we’re going to address the question, “What is considered a “Natural Flavor?” The FDA states that for something to be classified as a “natural flavor,” it simply needs to originate from something natural (you can find the exact FDA labeling requirements for natural flavors HERE). But that doesn’t mean it STAYS natural. In fact, one natural flavor tends to have anywhere from 50-100 chemicals added to it! So about 80-90% of your “natural flavor” isn’t natural! Crazy, right?!? Here’s an example for you. Say you are drinking the strawberry flavored sparkling water beverage called Bubly. The ingredient label says the beverage contains “natural flavors”. So the scrumptious strawberry flavoring could have absolutely started from a natural strawberry source. But the FDA ultimately allows these companies, such as Bubly, to add over 3000 chemicals to the flavoring concoction and still list it as “natural flavors.” It’s very possible that it started as a strawberry extraction, had some ethanol or propylene glycol added to it, plus 90 other ingredients before they finally got the perfect strawberry flavor with zero calories to add to their beverage! Now, ready...

[[To view info on probiotics and see my husband belly dance in the process, CLICK HERE]] First of all, why do either of these components matter? Why are they essential to your health?
