I’m ready to write about my experience drinking apple cider vinegar.
All I remember is that I started in late May/early June.
What inspired me to drink apple cider vinegar?
I watched a YouTube video until I came across a video about someone talking about how they lost weight by drinking apple cider vinegar, which made me curious.
At first I didn’t believe them until I tried it.
Warning ⚠️: don’t drink apple cider vinegar without diluting it with water.
How do you drink apple cider vinegar?
- For me, I add a tiny amount of it into the apple cider vinegar lid as a measurement then I pour the measured apple cider vinegar into a cup.
- I fill it with water (for me personally, cold water).
I exercised as I was drinking it every day and did one of Chloe Ting’s workout programmes roughly 4-5 days a week. To be honest, it’s hard to remind yourself to drink apple cider vinegar (even with water).
I usually drink before breakfast and after dinner (I basically drink it twice a day) and try to eat healthy during meals and, I try to eat in the right portion size (if you know what I mean).

Before and After
- At first, I didn’t like drinking it because it tasted awful but, now drinking it is not as bad as it used to be.
- I feel like I see an improvement when consuming apple cider vinegar compared to not drinking it.
- My stomach doesn’t seem bloated in the morning and is instead defined.
The benefits and dangers
According to Amrithaa, Rani and, Brundha (2020) apple cider vinegar contains vitamin B1, B2 and B6 and Vitamin C and is used for many purposes, for instance, weight loss. It also contains biotin, folic, niacin and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) which is known to convert foods such as carbohydrates and fats into energy; however, consuming too much can cause issues that could need medical attention if it is severe such as increased acid reflux, nausea and weak tooth enamel (insider, 2019).
I am not an expert when it comes to health and nutrition since I am not qualified or studying in the field but, all I want to say is to be careful and do your research before consuming it to avoid problems.
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine): Impacts different parts of the body such as the nervous system, the heart and brain.
Vitamin B2: Breaks down fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine): Reduce symptoms of depression
Vitamin C: Maintains healthy skin and protect cells in your body.
