Two tablespoons of white or red wine vinegar taken daily is supposed to promote fat burning qualities. I am so jazzed by this recent finding I am going to test it out on myself! You all should try this with me and let me know what happens to your measurements as in your waistline! In a recent study conducted by Tomoo Kondo in 2009 (a researcher at the Mizkan Group Corporation in Japan), individuals that consumed 2 tablespoons of vinegar lost more abdominal fat than those that did not consume it.
How It Works "While the fat-burning qualities of vinegar are still a bit unclear, both Johnston and Tomoo Kondo, who performed the 2009 study, believe that the acetic acid in vinegar is the reason it works. Essentially, the acetic acid leads to the body producing proteins that will break down the fat and help prevent build-up in the body," as stated by livestrong.com.
