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...

Could PREbiotics Be The Answer To Your Health & Weight Loss Struggles

It’s very possible that a lack of PREBIOTICS could be contributing to your difficulty in reaching your health, fitness, or weight loss goal. There’s a lot of talk and emphasis on PRObiotics these days, but PREbiotics are not talked about nearly enough! So I’m going to help you understand what a prebiotic is, what the benefits are, and whether or not you should be taking one! [[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? Because they’re necessary for a well-functioning gut, and with your gut being your second brain, you need to support it in every way possible. Chances are, if you have some type of health issue going on, your gut is affecting it. If your hormones are unbalanced, your mood is unstable, you experience bloating, you deal with anxiety or depression, you’re tired, you deal with inflammation in any form, there it is HIGHLY LIKELY that it is stemming from your gut. So if you want to have more control over your body and your results, you need to take control your gut health. What exactly is a prebiotic? It’s a special type of soluble fiber that can be consumed via supplement or whole food sources. There are several different types of prebiotic fibers such as inulin, oligofructose, and fructoiligosaccaride (FOS) and you can find these fibers in many plants such as Jerusalem artichoke, chicory root, onions, garlic, bananas, etc. The problem most people encounter is that they won’t or can’t eat enough...

Top Weight Loss Questions Answered

How much weight should I be losing? How quickly should I be losing weight? How do I know if I’m hitting a weight loss plateau? How quickly can I build lean muscle mass? I answer all these questions and more in this recorded Facebook Live! 1.) Three to five lbs lost per week is the maximum amount of weight you should lose per week! In the beginning of a weight loss, health, or fitness journey, it is common for weight loss results to be more significant. I have clients who have lost 10 lbs their first week. But these clients were of a heavier stature and had A LOT to lose, released a lot of water weight, and cleansed a lot of gunk from their gut! If you go 2 consecutive weeks without a change in weight, measurements, progress pictures, you may be approaching a plateau and have to adjust certain variables of your meal plan or training regimen. 2.) The type of workout you’re doing DOES make a difference in how much weight you lose and how quickly you lose it! HIIT Cardio, Steady State Cardio, Resistance Training… every individual has a body with different needs! 3.) Average lean muscle mass that can be built per month depends on how long your have been engaging in resistance training! For a beginner, the max about of quality lean muscle mass you can build per month is about 1 to 1.5 lbs. For someone who has been incorporating resistance training for 4+ years, such as bodybuilders and athletes, maximum lean muscle mass built is 3 to 5 lbs. 4.) Your...
