Drink This! The Simple Morning Tonic That Wakes Up Fat Loss



I have a morning routine that has made all the difference in the world when it comes to permanent fat loss.  I am certainly not the first to promote organic apple cider vinegar and lemon juice as a "wake up call" for digestion and fat burning, but I give this recipe to every client I work with at Gordon Studio:

1Tablespoon Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
4-6 Drops Liquid Stevia
16 oz. Water.

At the very bottom of this e-mail, you can read the introduction of a study from Arizona State University that outlines the effect of daily vinegar ingestion on pre-diabetes. (Before I began eating Sugar Freedom style, my morning blood sugar was regularly above 100.)

If the blood sugar lowering effect of apple cider vinegar wasn't good enough news, here's more.  My clients and I are convinced that the morning tonic above increases our satiety throughout the day.  That is so important because I am convinced that the ultimate key to permanent weight management is Appetite Management.

Beyond the morning tonic, several of my clients and I have been following the Six Minutes to Skinny Program, and we are amazed at how a six minute daily routine can produce a feeling of well being and appetite control that lasts throughout the day: leading to very gratifying fat loss results.

The fact is, research shows that a simple 6-minute shift in your morning routine can literally TRANSFORM your entire body at record speed...  Even better, my good friend Craig Ballantyne shows you exactly what to do at the link below:

PS – Craig calls this…the most exciting discovery he’s made in his 15+ year career in health, nutrition and fat loss!  I think what he found will shock you… 



Please leave comment if you have any questions on the tonic.

Here are some highlights from the study I told you about:

THEREPUTIC EFFECT OF DAILY VINEGAR INGESTION
FOR INDIVIDUALS AT RISK FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES

INTRODUCTION Vinegar ingestion at mealtime reduces postprandial glycemia and increases satiety, metabolic effects that may benefit individuals struggling with diabetes.1-3 In a research summary, the American Diabetes Association states that ‘Vinegar may make food healthier’.4 As a result, the medicinal use of vinegar has likely increased in recent years. The main constituent of vinegar, acetic acid, is the active component in vinegar responsible for the improved glycemic responses to meal ingestion. Most vinegar research to date is acute trials spanning one to two meals. Furthermore, little is known regarding the long- term benefits of regular vinegar ingestion in healthy individuals at risk for developing diabetes. This 12-week study investigated the effect of daily vinegar ingestion on blood glucose concentrations in healthy individuals with elevated fasting glucose. 

CONCLUSION
These data indicate that daily vinegar consumption favorably influences fasting glucose concentrations in healthy adults and contribute important information to the growing evidence base supporting the antiglycemic effects of vinegar. Vinegar is inexpensive, readily available, and a flavor enhancer. Although vinegar was taken as a drink prior to mealtime in the present study, vinegar can be incorporated into meals as a vinaigrette dressing on salads or vegetables or as a sandwich spread in the form of mustard, or it can simply be spritzed onto foods. Note that commercial vinegar tablets do not contain adequate amounts of acetic acid to induce an antiglycemic effect.
