Things we’ve heard you should drink to lose weight: lemon water, super-cold water, low-fat milk (seriously) and green tea.Of course, they’re not legit – there’s no magic bullet when it comes to weight-loss, so we’re not surprised that gulping apple cider vinegar is bogus, too.Add a couple of tablespoons into your daily smoothie for a boost in probiotics with a subtle taste or try using it with herbs and spices as a marinade.Keep in mind that heating the vinegar can kill a lot of the valuable bacteria, so eating it in its natural state is probably best.
