The apple cider vinegar in this soothing “toddy” has been proven to promote weight loss. In one impressive study, Japanese scientists found that vinegar’s acetic acid switches on fat-burning genes—an effect shown to help subjects trim nearly 10 percent of their body fat in only six weeks. And in an Australian study, women who took 2 Tbs. of apple cider vinegar daily consumed 1,400 fewer calories per week than those who didn’t take the vinegar.
