Hi I have taken acv for six weeks 3 times a day befor meals started with 1 tsp in glass weak squash and then after 3 weeks increased it to two teaspoon midday and evening. I found it suited me completely stop ins almost after 2 days and I've lost 12 lbs .... but stopped eating nearly all carbs and bad fats and not too sure if that made real difference. Now thought I should have a break after first bottle and tummy does not like it almost immediately ins returning! But I am very stressed at this time? But decided to get on to next bottle tomorrow ! Sorry for the book but just thought it may help others .
