Q:

How does apple cider vinegar help you lose weight?

A:

Apple cider vinegar may help with weight loss by activating certain genes that break down fat, according to WebMD. WebMD warns that the only study to test the notion that apple cider vinegar promotes weight loss was undertaken in Japan, and study participants using the apple cider vinegar lost slightly more weight than those who did not; nonetheless, the participants gained all the weight back when the study ended.

WebMD points out that while apple cider vinegar doesn't hold much promise for weight loss, it does help diabetics with controlling blood sugar in a way that is similar to some prescription medications. Scientists say this is because it blocks some of the digestion of starch that ordinarily raises blood sugar.
