How to Lose Weight With Prune Juice & Apple Cider Vinegar

While there is no miracle weight loss product, there is evidence that drinking both prune juice and apple cider vinegar could help you shed a few of those unwanted pounds. Both prune juice and apple cider vinegar are high in fiber. Adding fiber to your diet helps to curb your appetite and makes you feel full for a longer time after eating. Prune juice also acts as a natural laxative and will help to clear out old fecal matter.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Step 1

Choose organic, all-natural apple cider vinegar that is cloudy in appearance and contains the "mother." Vinegar "mother" is the cloudy cellulose that develops as the vinegar ferments. Clear apple cider vinegar has been filtered and pasteurized, destroying the vital enzymes and beneficial microbes present in unfiltered, raw vinegar.

Step 2

Fill a glass with 8 oz. of filtered water and 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar. Mix well.

Step 3

Drink apple cider vinegar up to three times per day, 10 to 20 minutes before a meal to help curb your appetite.

Step 4

Develop a consistent exercise routine. Opt for at least 30 minutes of cardio exercise three times per week. Combining prune juice and apple cider vinegar with regular exercise and a healthy diet may help you to shed unwanted pounds.

Prune Juice

Step 1

Choose organic, all-natural prune juice that does not have any additional sweeteners. Extra sweeteners can add calories to your diet and may hinder your weight loss goals.

Step 2

Drink 1/2 cup of prune juice every morning with your breakfast.

Step 3

Mix prune juice with 1/2 cup of another unsweetened, all-natural fruit or vegetable juice if you do not like the taste of prune juice.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup prune juice

  • 8 oz. water

  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp. honey (optional)

Tip

Add 1 tsp. of natural honey to your apple cider vinegar drink to sweeten the taste if needed.

Warning

Because of the laxative effects of prune juice, you should not drink more than 1/2 cup per day.
