Apple Cider Vinegar

Would you drink ACV? Apple Cider Vinegar (with the mother) is known to curb appetite. For more than 10 years my family has practiced it for many other benefits.
My was the first to try it and with the results he enjoyed, introduced the practice to us. I stopped taking when I couldn't get hold of Bragg's ACV. But now that I found it again, I am back to practicing it again.

Every morning, 2 capfuls of ACV is mixed to a glass of water. It's the first drink one should take on an empty stomach. Aside from curbing appetite, it also has other benefits. 


Intermittent Fasting: My Second Attempt

Since the pandemic started, I have gained weight rapidly. And a week ago, I have finally started Intermittent Fasting again. I have done it before but due to some stress eating, I have stopped doing it. I found comfort in food as cooking and baking or even simple food preparations are my ways of relaxing. 

So it started when I weighed myself again. But this time, I decided to finally pick up myself and do something about it. To help me in my journey, I have downloaded Fastic, an intermittent fasting app from PlayStore. It's quite good.

You can monitor weight too. 
It also allows you to monitor your water intake and how much movement you are able to achieve. Plus, you can have buddies in the journey who will help and encourage you. And the best thing, there are lessons you learn to give you more information about your journey and what happens to your body.
Best of all, the food I eat when I break from fast, within my eating window, and the last meal before I start my next fasting time, are now all healthy and carbs all scraped from my plan. But with Fastic, it has also become yummy too. This  is good so people on Intermittent Fasting will not feel deprived while on the program.

I always look forward to creating healthy, carb-free meals and I actually crave proteins instead of sweets and carbs.. But of course, this is also effective if we do exercises and prayer & meditation.

Crossing my fingers.. Wish me luck.
