Vinegar Tonic

I have a book quoting the value of vinegar, apple cider and white, in health and diet. They recommend drinking 1 tsp vinegar (either) and 1 tsp honey to glass of water 1/2 hour before meals.

I've heard that it acts as a diuretic.

The vinegar helps the digestive system process your food faster so that fat is not absorbed but passed through, the honey makes it palatable (ever try taking a tablespoon on white vinegar and swallowing it???) and adding it to the water helps fill the bottom of the tummy so you do eat less.

Well, I'm not sure if I could swallow a tablespoon even with water and honey... YUCK! But, if it works it may be worth it.

It does not taste that bad, the honey sweetens the vinegar, tastes like vinegarade

Still... I think I'll stick to drinking a plain old glass of H20 before every meal .

A good apple cider vinegar can be quite nice, no sharper than lemon juice, and quite appley tasting. I can drink a tablespoon of it neat!
