There’s a new twist on the trendy Ap­ple Cider Vine­gar Detox— one so pow­er­ful, folks re­port us­ing it to speed off up to 57 pounds in two months. The se­cret: adding me­tab­o­lism boost­ers like cayenne pep­per, ginger and turmeric to a tonic that in­cludes un­fil­tered vine­gar and wa­ter. “It’s one of my big­gest hacks to lose weight fast,” re­veals diet coach JJ Smith, whose vi­ral Face­book videos on ap­ple cider vine­gar (ACV) have got­ten more than 18 mil­lion hits. Im­pres­sive sci­ence even has doc­tors ex­cited. “Re­search shows that these drinks can help you lose sig­nif­i­cant weight with­out any change to your diet,” says Columbia Uni­ver­sity–trained nu­tri­tion ex­pert Fred Pesca­tore, M.D. And if you do eat health­ier, the spicy ACV ton­ics can “pro­foundly speed fat loss”

T ake it from Giros­alee Hil­liard. She was al­ready us­ing JJ Smith’s smoothie-based plan when she learned about cayenne-spiked ap­ple cider vine­gar ton­ics. The Ari­zona mom, 42, was skep­ti­cal at first. But, she laughs, “it seemed easy, and I’ll try any­thing once.” From the be­gin­ning, “I could feel it work­ing. I was less hun­gry and I could feel my en­ergy and me­tab­o­lism pick up.” So twice daily, she be­gan sipping a cayen­nevine­gar combo— some­times also adding lemon juice and ste­via to make it tastier— and the num­ber on the scale went down much faster. Giros­alee dropped up to 11 pounds a week, shed 50 pounds in a mat­ter of months and is down 60 pounds in all.

She’s not alone: When Julie Ethier, 41, teamed with her hus­band, Mike, and their friends Shawn and Stephanie

to shape up, they like­wise made the new ap­ple cider vine­gar trick part of their reg­i­men. So far, they’ve sped off about 40 pounds apiece. The On­tario mom doesn’t just drink her vine­gar ei­ther. She loves turn­ing it into salad dress­ing by whisk­ing to­gether spices, ap­ple cider vine­gar and olive oil. “Whether I take a ‘shot’ of vine­gar or make dress­ing, it cuts hunger way down, so it’s eas­ier to make smart choices,” she says. “I’ll keep tak­ing my ap­ple cider vine­gar ev­ery day!”

These sips work slim­ming magic by…

Speed­ing fat burn A land­mark study from Ari­zona State Uni­ver­sity re­vealed that acetic acid in vine­gar slashes blood­sugar and in­sulin lev­els by up to 64% af­ter meals. “Com­pounds in vine­gar mimic the di­a­betes drug Met­formin, but with none of the side ef­fects,” says nat­u­ral-health ex­pert David Jock­ers, D.C., cre­ator of The 30-Day Su­gar Detox Chal­lenge. Dr. Pesca­tore adds that if you stir cayenne pow­der or turmeric into your vine­gar tonic, you’ll flood your body with an­tiox­i­dants that have been proven to fur­ther im­prove blood-su­gar con­trol and in­sulin func­tion. Since in­sulin is a hor­mone that drives fat stor­age and blocks fat burn­ing, the health­ier your lev­els, the more fat you can burn and the more weight you can lose!

Spik­ing me­tab­o­lism

Any spice that makes your mouth tin­gle con­tains com­pounds that cre­ate heat and boost me­tab­o­lism—in­clud­ing turmeric and ginger, says Dr. Pesca­tore. The most po­tent: cayenne. A Ja­panese study re­vealed that eat­ing it can help you in­crease calo­rie burn­ing a full 30% for sev­eral hours.

Ac­ti­vat­ing skinny genes

Choose “raw, un­pas­teur­ized vine­gar with a cloudy look,” ad­vises Dr. Pesca­tore. Why? That means the liq­uid—which is made from fer­mented ap­ple juice—is loaded with “pro­bi­otics that help bol­ster strains of ben­e­fi­cial bac­te­ria in the di­ges­tive tract,” he ex­plains. Stud­ies show these ben­e­fi­cial gut bac­te­ria ac­tu­ally ac­ti­vate genes that help us shed up to 10% of our body weight in 16 weeks with­out any other life­style changes!

Turn­ing off hunger

“One study showed that drink­ing ap­ple cider vine­gar ac­tu­ally de­creased to­tal caloric in­take by up to 275 calo­ries over the course of the day,” notes Dr. Pesca­tore. The rea­son: When we have health­ier gut bac­te­ria, they “turn off” genes linked to junk food crav­ings. Also cru­cial: Ap­ple cider vine­gar and spices like cayenne and turmeric help pre­vent blood-su­gar spikes that trig­ger in­tense hunger.

“This trend has a lot go­ing for it,” adds Dr. Pesca­tore. “Give it a try!”
