    You are welcome. Do a little research on ACV and diabetes though. I can't remember if I read something against its use or not.

    If you are taking a multivitamin, like One a Day Womens, you are already getting B6 and Lecithin, so I guess the only thing you would be missing is the kelp!

    Same here..my face it really starting to clear up. Myhusband has even said that my dark spots seem to be getting lighter. If you can stomach it , it is well worth it. It's chep, natural, and doesn't require an office visit copay to get a prescriptions.

    Walmart has apple cider vinegar capsules in the diet aid section in the pharmacy. Would these work the same way?

    Ok..I tried the baking soda/ACV last night. I must admitt I can tell a difference in the way my skin feels. I wet my hands and put a generous amount of baking soda in my hand and scrubbed my face, it was a little rough, but after I scrubbed and rinse and wiped gently with a wash cloth and then I poured a little ACV on a cotton ball and wiped my face ( as a toner) and then I used my normal night cream....and my face feels really really good today. So thanks for sharing this information!!!! I love this SITE!!!

Up until I was 30 I never weighed more than 135lbs and was belmish free. But soon after I went above and beyond 135 as well started to develop terrible breakouts. I've tried everything, proactiv, black opal, ambi, you name it I probably have it on my bathroom shelf.

    I remember coming across an article that said Apple Cider Vinger was a natural remedy for acne. In doing more research i learned it also good for weight loss. So I challenge you my Phen friends to join me starting Monday June 9, 2008 to participate in an experiment to see if ACV is all that it is hyped up to be.

    Check out the following links on ways to digest ACV as well as ways to use it for skin care.

    http://www.healthrecipes.com/apple_cider_vinegar.htm
    http://www.apple-cider-vinegar-benef...-theories.html

    The second link is great: You may need to copy and paste it to be able to open the link.

    Here are a couple of ways I found to use it:
    In summer months: Add 1/4 cup of ACV to a quart of water. Add ice cubes. Drink this on a hot summer day, especially before working out. Your body will feel very cleansed.

    In winter months: 2 TBLS of ACV in a mug filled with hot water 3x day. Are you used to drinking tea or coffee during your long commute to work? Try this instead -- you will feel energized but not adrenalized. Add a few shakes of cayenne pepper if you REALLY want an energy lift!

    Cider Vinegar is rather strong and so is best diluted with water. Add a little honey to the mix if you find it easier to drink. If you want to neutralize the mix slightly add about a ¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda). Rinse out your mouth afterwards to remove any excess acid that may cause damage to your teeth enamel in the long term. Choose a tonic mix from the recipes below and drink three times a day.

    From my understanding the best ACV to buy is the organic type. So who is all wiling to go on this ride with me. I don't expect it to be easy but my understanding is that you can mix it w/green tea as well as honey to get a better taste. I will post a second thread on Sunday so that we can share are experiences. Good Luck
    Hey, I wanted to ask you how is the Apple Cider Vinegar working??? Can you tell me again how to use it as a toner on my face??? My face is starting to look really dry. HELP!!!

    How did your first day go dmistyc7? I took the apple cider right before lunch and dinner. Today I feel a little more upbeat. Has anyone else started it?

    girl I am SO GLAD that you brought this up! Mami from the board is using the cider vinegar to lose weight and i saw the organic kind in the health food store. i'm going to buy it so count me in on Monday..I have no problem drinking it with ice water....sounds refreshing....
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    I don't need to dilute mine either. I went out this morning and got Bragg's Raw Unfiltered Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. I looked on line and it was voted the best ACV. I got a 32 Fluid Ounce for $4.99 at Krogers. I took two tsp 30 minutes before lunch and drank 20 ounces of water afterwards and it wasn't bad at all. I plan on taking it again right before dinner.
