    Good Morning ladies,

     

    Is it too late for me to enter?  I know I cannot "win", but I would like to enter for the motivation.

          It's never too late to enter. Since it's passed the deadline, any new entry just won't be eligible for the 'win' but you are still free to join for motivation and fun =]

            Started my Apple Cider Vinegar today....wasn't delicious...but wasn't too bad.  How soon did you feel/see results?

             

            Do you use it everyday?  I'm the tiniest bit nervous to use everyday cause so much acid...maybe every other day...but then will I get all the benefits?

              I also tried the ACV today.  I bought organic, unfiltered, unpasturized ACV with the "mother" in it (Omega Nutrition is the brand).  It didn't taste great, but it wasn't horrible...

               

              However, I have been looking up some possible side effects and I've read that because it is so acidic, it can cause yeast infections -- has this been a problem for anyone?  Also heard that it is not great for the tooth enamel.

               

              I'm going to use just a little bit for now, greatly diluted in water to see what happens.

                You're supposed to drink it before every meal (so 3X daily, but 2x a day would be fine too): 2 tsp. in 8 fl. oz. of water or 3 tsps in a water bottle. The water weight goes first and I noticed that within the first week. You'll notice your complexion improving soon after use. It might get a little worse the first couple days(like pimples,etc.) but it's only removing the bacteria beneath the skin, so right after you'll soon see smoother skin and blemishes disappearing. ACV speeds up your metabolism and is an appetite suppressant among other weight loss benefits. I personally started seeing results in the first couple weeks of use; but it won't do it all on it's own, so healthy dieting and exercise is still necessary. I definitely feel more energized during the days I drink it.

                 

                I use it everyday before a meal. For work, I just bring a premixed bottled water with me. However, I do skip days sometimes if I'm too busy and that didn't interfere with the results. I'm pretty sure you can drink it every other day if you want. You'll most likely get the same results, but perhaps not as fast. I'm not 100% sure, but it should still work IMO.

                 

                The taste definitely isn't something to rave about, but you get used to it after a while. I learned personally that it actually tastes better (well not as strong) when you drink it with cold water (refridgerated temp.) or if you add ice cubes even. Hope that helps. =] Good luck

                  The acid from Apple Cider Vinegar is heavily diluted from the water. As long you don't drink it by itself, then there's not much chance of the acid harming you. However, make sure to either brush your teeth or wash the mixture down with another glass of pure water, because the acid could effect teeth enamel like Oryx said. This can be easily prevented with the above options. Hope that helps =]

                  I've never gotten yeast infections as a result of it, but I'm curious to find out if this has happened to anyone. This is the first I've heard of this side effect. Thanks for pointing that out =]

                   

                  I always drink a cup of regular water after the ACV mixture(diluted with water) to help prevent any enamel wear. Any acid isn't great for teeth (limes, lemons, oranges, etc.) so I try to drink the ACV before I brush my teeth. Since it should be ingested before meals, I would drink it before breakfast, eat breakfast right after, then wash my teeth and the same for dinner. At lunch, I just wash it down with another glass of water without ACV. I've heard of some people just drinking it consistently throughout the day, but I wouldn't do this as it probably would affect the teeth far more.

                    Hey ladies, I've never used the apple cidar vinegar but no I'm thinking of trying it.  If you are worried about tooth enamel, then I would suggest drinkning it with a straw to minimize any contact with your teeth.

                      Good idea, Cindy! I'll be buying some straws next time at the grocery store
