Vinegar for Fat Loss

In a recent short article by Danielle Alvarez in Fitness Magazine, she quotes a recent study finding that two tablespoons per day of Vinegar consumed by obese people helped them lose an average of 5 percent more tummy fat than those who did not consume the vinegar. A study by Tommoo Kondo, a researcher at Mizkan Group Corporation in Japan states that Acetic acid, which is the main ingredient of vinegar helps reduce body fat by stimulating oxidation of fat in the liver.

I personally hated vinegar as a kid, but now I use it with everything, making a variety of different types of dressings. I use White Wine Vinegar, Apple Cider Vinegar, Distilled Vinegar or even Balsamic to create variety in my salads and keep my palate in ecstasy.
