----------- TRANSCRIPT --------------
It seems like every now and again, some new guru, study, or book brings a new fad to the marketplace that makes the same promise: the body you want, without the work you don't want.
Some are more harmful than others.
Some are just placebos.
Some maybe actually make a difference.
But what about apple cider vinegar for weight loss?
Check out the study below to see what researchers found.
What The Researchers Found
In North Africa, apple cider vinegar is apparently a common method (or at least folk remedy) for attaining weight loss.
In one case, noted in 2012, a 15 year old Morrocan girl was presented showing symptoms of extensive tooth erosion. When the researchers dug deeper, they found it was associated with her daily glass of apple cider vinegar used to attempt and induce weight loss.
Another study done in 2001 sought to evaluate the physiological and health effects of apple cider vinegar on mice when given varying dosages.
Three groups of female mice were given varying dosages of vinegar per KG of body weight for 4 weeks (low dose, moderate dose, high dose - where the high dose was 5-6x the low dose).
Here's what the researchers found:
In the moderate dose group, the apple cider vinegar produced "significant reduction in weight gain" but not in the other groups. However, and this is a big however, high doses of the vinegar also produced health complications including: increases in liver and spleen weight, changes in the liver and stomach, erosion of gastric mucosa, and other lesions in certain organs.
So should you really be taking it to lose weight?
My verdict - NO - here's why.
So Should You Really Be Chugging Apple Cider Vinegar?
First of all... as long as you don't mind smelling like farts mixed with apples (since that's what this stuff smells like), here are some actual things to consider surrounding apple cider vinegar (and any other gimmick that pops up every year).
#1 Use the Silver Bullet Framework
Whenever a new thing enters the market - whether it's a pill or a plan - ask yourself: Does it sound like a silver bullet? It probably is then.
Listen, the whole world is going to be screaming "TAKE ME!!" to lose weight (or achieve your goals faster), and there are billions of dollars invested into getting you to buy the latest miracle pill found on unicorn poop somewhere in the Amazon.
But let me ask you this: if a little kid said, "Mommy, do you think this will help me lose weight?" what would your gut say?
"No honey, you actually need to do the work."
Intuitively I think we all know it to be true, but emotionally it can be easy to latch on to the next shiny thing.
And I know we all find ourselves in desperate straights sometimes, where we want the outcome NOW (who doesn't?), but that's why It's especially difficult to
#2 If It Takes You Less Than 5 Minutes To Solve a Complex Issue, It's Probably B.S.
Think about anything.
Your marriage or relationship.
Do ANY of them really take just five minutes to fix?
Nope. Not at all.
In fact, they're all kinda complex processes. They require consistent, daily habits over time (also known as the compound effect). And intuitively, I bet you know deep down that a marriage, job, relationship, and yes, our health, can't be fixed with a simple supplement.
There's no doubt that five minutes can make a big difference in your life, no matter what you're working on.
But consider this: intuitively, does the idea that we can spend an entire year neglecting a relationship - and then fix it in five minutes - make any sense to you?
It doesn't make any sense to me either :-).
The same is true of our health, and unfortunately the news is typically the worst offender when it comes to sharing the newest, latest, sexiest, unique-est, rarest new method of weight loss.
Sometimes you just need to put on your little scientist hat and pause for a moment before dropping $50 on a jar of something that's a very "small win" (or placebo) compared to many of the big wins we can make with our health and body.
