Which curbs hunger the longest: Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea or Plain Water?

The answer to this question isn’t cut & dry. All of these liquids have stupendous merit and definitely do the job of bitch-slapping hunger. Yet as a veteran-slurper off of all three of these, I’ve discovered something quite interesting…

acv apple cider vinegar Which curbs hunger the longest: Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea or Plain Water?

WATER

OMG, plain water is so dang boring. Ya, I do drink it in impressive (forced) amounts, and we all know how important water is, but when drank-en for the purpose of curbing hunger, it gets last place marks. In my personal experience, making a concerted effect to slurp on water to curb hunger has mostly led to bloating and the necessity for me to strap a Porta-Potty to my back. I’m not discouraging you from getting in your hydrationfication through plain water, but for the sole purpose of battling hunger, you have better options.

HOT OR COLD TEA

I get it. Not everyone is a tea drinker. But here’s why it’s better than plain water: Tea is an experience. It gives you that fanciful feeling. And since tea is most times slurped slowly opposed to being gulped profusely, in my own unscientific experience, tea is digested in a way that makes you not have to run to the bathroom in excess. One can argue that you can simply slurp water in the same slow manner to avoid the bathroom problem, but the fact still remains that water can get boring real fast. Tea seems to fill you up in a more slow, controlled fashion, allowing for greater hunger-curbing longevity.

I’m currently in love with The Republic of Tea, Ginseng Peppermint Tea Which curbs hunger the longest: Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea or Plain Water? . It is ahhh-mazing. Each teabag contains a mix of cinnamon, Echinacea, panax ginseng, peppermint, licorice, and other fanciful ingredients.

Tea delivers the waters you need while also pumping your sexy body with other healthy ingredients. If you’re intrigued, check out my easy recipes for Homemade Citrus Sweet Tea and Easy Homemade Detox Tea.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR (ACV)

I stumbled upon ACV’s hunger-curbing superpowers by accident. I add 4 teaspoons of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar Which curbs hunger the longest: Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea or Plain Water? to a bottle of plain water (approx 16 ounces). My initial and continued purpose for adding ACV to my water is to promote alkalinity in the body (yes, vinegar does create an alkaline state). I’m greedy for all the health benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar Which curbs hunger the longest: Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea or Plain Water? , but never thought it might curb my hunger as wonderfully as it does.

Apple Cider Vinegar has a strong reputation as a weight loss aid and natural healing agent. I’ve written about its effectiveness at keeping the stomach flu away. Just be sure to NOT get the basic, crystal clear kind you find in the stores. Get yourself some Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar since it contains the “mother”. Many stores are now carrying this in the natural food aisle.

Tea-slurping has a tiny edge over ACV when used to curb hunger, but Apple Cider Vinegar is still the best choice because of its weight loss benefits. ACV contains acetic acid, which helps breakdown and prevent the accumulation of body fat. Here is additional reading you can do to explore the subject further:

Whatever healthy methods you use to stay hydrated and curb hunger, consider adding apple cider vinegar to your regimen. It’ll do ‘yo body good. Now drink it up!

Greedy Recipe! Instant Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

OMG. Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal. I licked the bowl clean… while at work. Didn’t care who saw me.

blueberry muffin oatmeal Greedy Recipe! Instant Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

After having salad with chicken breast for lunch, my stomachs demanded additional nourishment. So why not make a “muffin”?  You’ll be muffinated in less than 4 minutes when you try this. It’s sweet, yet low in sugar and screams of decadence.

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries, or as much as desired
  • 1/2 cup oats — not the instant kind
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 packet or teaspoon of coconut sugar

DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients into microwave safe bowl, except for the sugar.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until your “muffin” thickens to desired consistency.
  • Sprinkle coconut sugar on top and let it melt in. Ahhhh!

I cooked my oatmeal a bit thick to garner more of a “muffin” texture. Also added lots of blueberries to totally bling it out with flavor.

Coconut Sugar Notes: I do recommend you use coconut sugar due to its low glycemic index rating. This sugar is derived from the sap of the coconut tree, not the coconut itself. It won’t taste like coconuts but, instead, offers a lovely sweetness that will keep your fitness on track as you enjoy gnawing on your “muffin”.

Coconut sugar is wonderfully sweet, yet with a rating of 35, has a lower GI Index than apples, carrots, and oranges. Refined white sugar has a GI Index of 99. Whoa!

What Does the Glycemic Index Mean?

“The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Low-GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health. Low GI diets have been shown to improve both glucose and lipid levels in people with diabetes (type 1 and type 2). They have benefits for weight control because they help control appetite and delay hunger. Low GI diets also reduce insulin levels and insulin resistance. “~ via University of Sydney

Well how about THAT! Coconut sugar’s nutrient profile will also slap yo’ face off with impressiveness.

Hope your ready to enjoy your sweet blueberry “muffin”. This is a great meal for anytime of day, and especially works well in the evening when you’re feeling extra greedy snacky.

Now open up those hungry jaws wide and CHEW.

How to Make a Kick Ass Power Sammich

  • 1 egg, scrambled or fried hard in a dab of coconut oil*
  • 2 thick avocado slices
  • fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 slice cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS

  • Build your sammich by first toasting your Ezekiel bread while you prepare the egg.
  • Lay small amount of spinach of top slice of warm & toasty bread

Speed Rope for Fat Loss: Workout and Meal Plan

Isn’t fat loss a beautiful thang? If you haven’t yet acquired your speed rope for cardio conditioning and to battle your fatty parts, don’t you dare fret. Even before I had my own speed rope, I would mimic the moves with an “invisible” speed rope. You can do the same.

speed rope workout Speed Rope for Fat Loss: Workout and Meal Plan

SPEED ROPE FOR FAT LOSS: WORKOUT BREAKDOWN

This is a timesaver workout that should take approximately 14-16 minutes to complete. It leaves ample room for quality couch-azzing later on. During speed rope, set your interval timer for 8 rounds of: 20 seconds work / 10 seconds rest

  • Full body warm up of your choice, approx 4 mins
  • 4 minutes high knee speed rope intervals
  • Push-ups until failure
  • Short rest, approx 90-secs
  • Push-ups until failure
  • 4 minutes high knee speed rope intervals

speed rope intervals Speed Rope for Fat Loss: Workout and Meal Plan

EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST

Speed Rope or invisible speed rope

Interval Timer or free online timer

THE MEAL PLAN

  • Breakfast: Tea or coffee. Waffle smathered in raw honey. Fresh watermelon cubes.
  • Lunch: Spinach salad with diced tomatoes, 1 sliced hard boiled egg & 2 slices fresh bacon crumbles. Light dressing of your choice.
  • Dinner: Turkey burger with lettuce & tomato. Homemade, baked sweet potato fries.
  • Snacking throughout the day: Small handful of almonds, carrot sticks, small square of chocolate or other small sweet treat.

Eating Tips: If you are doing Intermittent Fasting, skip the breakfast and enjoy your first meal at lunchtime. Remember to hydrate sufficiently throughout the day. Stay away from bottled juice, soda (including diet soda) and those high calorie mocha-latte-cha-cha types of drinks. Stick with water, tea, coffee, and freshly squeezed juice. Feel free to sweeten your tea or coffee with your favorite non-artificial sweetener, but make it your goal to use less sweetener than normally. Natural, zero-calorie Stevia works nicely in tea, but not coffee.

You guarantee yourself results when you stick to your fitness plan and put in the work. Strive for nothing less than awesome.
