Apple cider vinegar (ACV) and vinegar in general has been found to have a plethora of benefits ranging from improved blood sugar control and possibly improved weight loss.(1) Typically, the studies are finding that around 1-2 Tbsp. (15-30 mL) of apple cider vinegar is all that's needed to reap the benefits. In fact, this is about the amount used in the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle protocols in order to aid in improving Intermittent Fasting results. But if you aren't a fan of ACV, here are three ways you can experiment with adding it into your routine.

The OG ACV Sipper
This is the original way of incorporating Apple Cider Vinegar into your routine that AENpeeps use in the Complete Intermittent Fasting Bundle. An important note here: make sure you SIP it! Drinking apple cider vinegar drinks too quickly can sometimes cause an upset stomach. That's why it's called the ACV Sipper.

Lemon ACV Tea
A small amount of lemon juice can help to mask the flavor of the ACV if you aren't a fan. Try boiling water with 1/8-1/4 lemon if you're in your fasted state. Otherwise, if you're in your eating window, you can add as much lemon as you like. Once the lemon tea has cooled to your liking, stir in 1 Tbsp. of apple cider vinegar. You can also start with less ACV (1 tsp. or so) if the taste is still a little strong for you.
Sparkling Water + ACV (AKA Sorta Kombucha)
This is a trick that one of the AENpeeps suggested to me. They use 8-12 oz. sparkling water and add in 1-2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar for a kombucha-esque flavor. So if you're a fan of kombucha, test out this swap to get your daily ACV in!
