What studies have found true is that consuming ACV before large meals, [1 tbsp in a cup of water], does seem to help with appetite control and curbing cravings. Researchers in Japan also found that daily consumption of ACL helped prevent weight gain. So if you’re currently trying to maintain your weight loss, this might be the magic tip you’re looking for!

The research proving this effect was done on rats, but a study of a large group of women who increased their consumption of ACL in an oil and vinegar salad dressing did find that their risk of heart disease decreased.

Takeaway: eat your greens, and top them with ACV in your dressing for an added healthy kick!
