I Drank Apple Cider Vinegar Everyday For A Month. Here's What Happened.

There are tons of health claims on the benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar. I drank it every day for 30 days. This is what happened.


Apple cider vinegar has a whole bunch of health claims. A quick Pinterest search will tell you that it will help you lose weight, cure indigestion, lower your body fat, assist in autoimmune disorder symptoms - heck, there's probably a claim out there that it will cure cancer, too! (I haven't seen those claims, but I wouldn't be surprised, because it's the internet after all.) Given all these amazing claims, I wanted to check it out and see what actually happens when you drink apple cider vinegar everyday. A group of friends were doing a January cleanse, which would have been awesome for a "reset" after the holidays, but since I'm breastfeeding, I couldn't participate. So, the apple cider vinegar challenge it was! I took before and after photos that are unedited and taken at the same time of day for equal lighting. Here it is, friends! I drank apple cider vinegar (ACV) everyday for a month. Here's what happened.

For clarity, I did nothing else differently than consume the ACV. I started with a tablespoon and worked my way up to about 1/3 a cup. Y'all, this stuff is STRONG. It's tart. It makes you pucker your lips after you take a sip, even if it is well mixed with something else! So I started with the minimal amount, and after I found good ways to incorporate it into my beverages, I slowly increased the amount. I do NOT suggest taking a "shot" of it right off the bat, or going balls to the wall and drinking a half cup as a slow sipping beverage. Start with a small amount mixed with other natural juices and work your way up slowly!

Here's my just starting pic, or "before photo" if you will:

My diet remained the same. I didn't cut calories (like I said, I'm breastfeeding, and twins at that so I need tons of calories daily). I didn't work out more or less than I was previously, and didn't omit any particular food group (like dairy) from my diet. Literally, the only thing that changed was adding in a ACV drink everyday. I read that it was best first thing in the morning, or on an empty stomach before a meal to aid digestion, so that's what I did. Usually I consumed it around 3-4pm, well after I had eaten lunch and a few hours before I'd eat supper. 

It took me a while to figure out a way to consume it that was drinkable. I'm not kidding when I say this stuff is harsh, strong, robust, maybe even brutal - and that says a lot coming from me, because I can get over a lot of strong foods for the sake of better health! Here's my favorite way to drink it:

- 2oz Young Living Ningxia Red
- 2oz Acai berry juice (it's sweetened)
- 1-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
- 3 or so tablespoons unsweetened cranberry juice

Mix it all together and enjoy! Add ice if you're so inclined. I'd start with one tablespoon of ACV and increase as you get accustomed to the drink. The tart cranberry juice surprisingly paired well with the ACV and 100% real, organic cranberry juice is great for your liver and kidneys.

Apple cider vinegar has so many health benefits, but is so hard to drink. Make this drink that tastes great!
Like it? Pin it!

Ok, so that was how I drank it. Let's get into the deets of what happened! After the first week, I didn't notice any specific benefit, other than I got on the scale at they gym (same scale I use every time) and wouldn't you know, I was down two pounds! Two pounds, after doing nothing but drink the ACV drink daily. I literally changed nothing else. And it wasn't just one day at two pounds, it was consistent. After a month, I was down CONSISTENTLY (meaning, over at least 7 weigh ins) 5 pounds.

I don't suffer from digestive issues like heartburn or indigestion. So I can't speak to if it helped with that or not. But one Friday night I did indeed drink too much red wine, which for me results in a horrible headache the following day from all the tannin. I made up my ACV drink first thing in the morning, and it completely took my headache away! If you're like me and occasionally like to indulge in that extra glass of vino (because, weekend!), this drink is a MUST. It's a lifesaver. No need for pain meds, just chug this drink down real quick and be on your merry way for the day without a headache.

Frankly, I didn't feel like a new woman. I didn't feel healthier. The real differences were the fairly immediate weight drop, that at first I attributed to de-bloating. But since it was sustained and kept going down, I have nothing other to attribute the weight loss too than consuming ACV. And my before and after pics look a tad different, so I think it was actual weight and not just water/bloat! The weight loss and the hangover cure were legit. If you have indigestion issues, I can definitely see this helping with that, too. Also, as a side note, I started using an ACV shampoo and it did wonders for making my hair super shiny, and it really felt like it took away all the dry shampoo build up I accumulate. I, ugh, use LOTS of dry shampoo! And this shampoo did wonders for clarifying my hair. I'm sure an ACV rinse would do the same thing (but this shampoo smells so much better...)

And, the "after shot"!


So, am I going to continue to drink this stuff daily? Meh. Probably not every day. Unless my weight starts creeping back up. I'll more likely drink it 3-4 times a week, especially on the weekends after I've had wine. That was a huge difference I noticed immediately, was the headache cure! It also was a great de-bloat-er. Is that a word? I'm sure there's a word for that, but my vocabulary is lacking from lack of sleep, so I'll just go with de-bloat-er. There were definitely some good health benefits and some cosmetic perks to drinking ACV everyday, so if you're looking for an easy fix, I'd highly suggest adding it to your daily regimen. Will it solve all your problems? No. Is it a cure all? Absolutely not. But drinking apple cider vinegar daily made some small improvements to my life, that's for sure.

Update! This post was supposed to publish in early February. Deadlines got switched around and last minute projects added, blah blah blah, and here we are in March. But that resulted in an interesting thing happening! I drank ACV everyday from Jan 6 (per my announcement on Instagram) through the first week of February, and got all the results above. Then I stopped for the remainder of February. By the end of the month, I had put 3-4 pounds back on and my tummy was poofy again! So in the last few days of the month and into March, I started to drink it everyday again. Low and behold, the weight went away and my tummy debloated. That leads me to believe that ACV definitely helps digestion, as it helped me lose excess water weight TWICE.

  1. Wow, your pics do look different- your abs are much more defined after the ACV! I have to say I'm a fierce vinegar hater, but I keep hearing about it's many benefits, I'm torn! Would you say the mocktail was quite palatable?

  2. This is very interesting! I’ve tried in the past to chug a shot and just couldn’t do it but with your suggestions I will try the mixture and see how it goes. I know it is good for health and I’m all for that but losing a few extra pounds would be great too!

  3. My husband drinks it when he’s dieting! I’d mix it with apple juice (it tastes like slightly sour apple candy that way) but I didn’t do it consistently enough to notice a change. Maybe I should!

  5. I've been wanting to try an ACV morning cocktail for some time. Your before/after definitely has me even more convinced I should just do it. I too keep reading about all health benefits and I just wan to see for myself.

  6. You look amazing! I'm a huge lover of AC & don't mind the taste at all! My favorite way to drink it is in warm water with a dash of cinnamon, honey, & a little lemon!

  7. I for sure agree with the ACV for hair! I use it every so often to get all the dry shampoo build up off my scalp. And yes to the bloating. I definitely notice a difference in bloat when I'm consistent with drinking it. Good stuff!

  8. A few women I used to work with swore by Apple Cider Vinegar and the benefits are obvious in your pictures. I think I am going to take up the challenge next month!

  9. I used to drink an ACV beverage almost every day but then for some reason I stopped. The taste does take some getting used to but I did find it helped with digestion and bloat. Think it might be time to try it out again.

  10. I love this idea. Combining it into a mocktail has to make it much easer to consume. I use it for several applications like cleaning and a conditioner for my hair, but I will have to give this recipe a shot. Thanks for sharing.

  20. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com

    Has anyone here heard about blank ATM card? An ATM card that allows you to withdraw cash from any Atm machine in the world. No name required, no address required and no bank account required. The Atm card is already programmed to dispense cash from any Atm machine worldwide. I heard about this Atm card online but at first i didn't pay attention to it because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from guarantee Atm card vendor. We both went to the ATM machine center and confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go. Ever since then I’ve been withdrawing $1,500 to $5000 daily from the blank ATM card & this card has really changed my life financially. I just bought an expensive car and am planning to get a house. For those interested in making quick money should contact them on: Email address : besthackersworld58@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +1(323)-723-2568
