How much apple cider vinegar is needed for weight loss?

I recommend two teaspoons of vinegar, including apple cider vinegar, with each meal. Never drink vinegar straight, though. Instead, flavor meals or dress a side salad with any of the sweet and savory vinegars out there. If you want to drink it, make sure to mix it in a glass of water and, afterward, be sure to rinse your mouth out with water to protect your tooth enamel. You can even add to tea with some lemon juice to aid weight loss.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial showed that a little vinegar every day led to pounds of weight loss achieved for just pennies a day—without removing anything from their diet.
