Apple cider vinegar benefits include weight loss – but just how much do you need to drink in order to lose weight?
One scientific study carried out in Japan showed that drinking more of the vinegar can help you lose more weight.
The nutrition experts at the Central Research Institute in Aichi asked two groups to drink different amounts of apple cider vinegar once a day, and a third control group drank a drink with no apple cider vinegar.
The scientists found that the apple cider vinegar drinking groups lost weight, had a lower BMI and lost inches around the waist.
Just how much cider vinegar should you drink?
The researchers found that one tablespoon a day or 15 ml saw test subjects lose 2.6 lbs, or 1.2 kgs.
Those who had double that a day lost even more, shedding 3.7 lbs, or 1.7 kgs a day.
Those in the trial drank the apple cider in 500 ml of water.
However, there are other ways that dieters can try the drink.
It is perfectly fine to take the vinegar neat if you can stomach the sour taste.
You may also drink apple cider vinegar like a hot toddy.
Dilute the vinegar with warm water and add a healthy sweetener such as honey.

Women’s body measurements were lower and the women were lighter and had a lower BMI after eating three grams of cumin twice a day for three months, the study found.
