Water Fasting has many known benefits. It does more than simply help in weight loss. It helps reset many systems in the body. When we water fast, our body recycles (autophagy) and rebuilds. It can both decrease inflammation and at the same time boost our infection fighting capabilities. It helps regulate and reset the hormones that drive our hunger (leptin) and insulin resistance. It can play a key role in getting blood pressure under control, eliminating the need for diabetic medications, reverse some autoimmune problems, and much more.
Different benefits come along with different durations. 24, 48, and 72 hours each as additional benefits. You do not need to jump into a 72 hours or longer fast. Many find it beneficial to start with a 24-hour fast and work up to a longer fast.
Your body needs to be ready for this powerful treatment. If you are not already eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and seeds, that is the place to start.
For many people a short-term water fast is safe. However, there are some risks to water fasting. This is especially true if you are taking medication. Talk with your doctor to see if this is a good option to kick-start your health journey.

For nearly 200 years vinegar as been used as a weight loss aid. But does it work? Yes! A high quality twelve week study in Japan shoed that 2 tbs of vinegar resulted in the loss of about 5 pounds and loss of 1 inch around the waist without making any dietary or exercize changes.
This study prepared three drinks one with 2 tbs of vinegar, another with 1 tbs, and a third drink with a different acid that make them taste the same. They monitored the participants diet to insure there were not changes; and gave them a pedometer to insure not significant change in activity.
However, this by itself is not the solution. After the study the 2 tbs group regains most of the weight they lost during the study.
