Title of Abstract

Eliminating Fad Dieting With Vinegar

Abstract

It is a family tradition to consume apple cider vinegar to reduce cholesterol levels; this influenced asking the question if it could also be used for weight loss. $40 billion is spent annually in America on fad diets, ones that have temporary popularity without manifesting long term results. Since vinegar proved effective for reducing cholesterol levels, it was assumed it would also reduce fat. By using the natural ingredients contained in vinegar, the same, if not better results can be reached as if one were to conform to a fad diet. The hypothesis was tested by: researching the chemical and enzymatic effects vinegar has on the body, investigating costs and side effects of different diets, how much weight was lost, if weight remained off and associated health hazards. Findings proved vinegar helped to prevent body fat accumulation and weight gain. It decreased activity of the enzymes that respond to sugars. Fad dieting analysis averaged at a cost of $91 per week where no diet, just vinegar, averaged $54. Results proved money can be saved; harmful side effects prevented and weight loss goals attained. Vinegar not only induced weight loss but also decreased cholesterol levels, promoted body detoxification and efficient digestion.
