  • It's really not as bad as it sounds. I know it works great for cramps, constipation, and other stomach problems. But it also gives the heart a real boost. Drinking it with hot water works faster than with cold. Or you can just buy the capsules. If you're serious about losing weight, pour some cayenne powder into an 8 oz. glass of apple cider vinegar and sip it throughout the day. Works better on an empty stomach and no, it does not burn your stomach lining.

  • I've never heard it but it does not sound healthy...nor does it sound like it would have any long term benefits. Like most fad diets, the second you go off of them, you gain all the weight right back. I suggest Weight Watchers. You don't have to go to the meetings if you don't want to. You can buy the eating guides (that tell you how many points all food is) off Ebay, and go it your own. That's what I did, and lost 20 lbs in 2 months. I went on a break and have only gained 5 back...and its been like 4 months. It teaches you to eat healthy, make better choices, and its actually HEALTHY weight loss...and not just water weight.
