Several studies show that apple cider vinegar can increase feelings of fullness. This can lead you to eat fewer calories and lose weight. For example, according to one study, taking vinegar along with a high carb meal led to increased feelings of fullness, causing participants to eat 200–275 fewer calories throughout the rest of the day.
Furthermore, a study in 175 people with obesity showed that daily apple cider vinegar consumption led to reduced belly fat and weight loss.However, keep in mind that this study went on for 3 months, so the true effects on body weight seem to be rather modest.
But the results were still favorable: taking 1 tablespoon led to a loss of 2.6 pounds while taking 2 tablespoons led to a loss of 3.7 pounds
One final note: Apple cider vinegar only contains about three calories per tablespoon, which is very low.
