Apple Cider Vinegar Uses in Real Life

Apple Cider Vinegar Uses in Real Life

apple cider vinegarApple cider vinegar or ACV is a by-word in home remedies and health regimes. People trusted ACV even back in the days and it was during the time of Hippocrates that it was utilized to provide relief for various kinds of illnesses as well as to battle infections. To this day, apple cider vinegar continues to play an important role. Some people consider it as a miracle cure for almost anything. It is said to be great for the skin, hair, and even in weight management. But how true are all these claims in actual application?

The Wonders of Apple Cider Vinegar

Weight loss is associated with the consumption of ACV. When enjoying your meals with vinegar, it tends to give you that feeling of fullness that can last for hours. As a result, it prevents you from eating too much. It was found in a study that those who had vinegar with their meals consumed lesser calories at 200 to 275 for the day.

Apple cider vinegar is also very useful in reducing and regulating blood sugar levels. Because it has acetic acid, the absorption of sugar in the blood stream can be slowed down. This was shown to be true in a study conducted at the University of Milan. The blood sugar level of the subjects dropped by 34% after they drank a gram of acetic acid found in olive oil. They did this before they ate 50 grams of white bread and it had a significant effect. In comparison, if they just ate the bread without having the acetic acid first, a sugar spike in their blood stream could have occurred as is usual. Sugar spikes are dangerous for the body when they happen often. It can lead to the development of Type II Diabetes.

It has been proven that ACV can help cut down the risk of heart ailments. A number of researches have been done on how vinegar can reduce blood pressure and this study was started out with rats. A healthy conclusion has similarly been reached in another study when rats were given Apple Cider Vinegar to consume and their triglyceride and cholesterol levels were reduced. There still has to be more actual research application on humans but, there is already an observational study which revealed that women who ate up on vinegar-based salad dressings reduced their chances of suffering from heart diseases.

At home with Apple Cider Vinegar

ACV is also great to use externally. It can be a powerful cleaning agent that you can use in the house to freshen up surfaces. You can also mix it up with lemon juice and utilize it when you wash your fruits and veggies. It will clean them up and get rid of any traces of Salmonella. When you quickly gargle on ACV, its antibacterial properties activate and it swipes your teeth clean of gunk. It cannot be expected to whiten your teeth though because its too acidic. So just use straight apple cider vinegar in your mouth to a minimum as it can harshly erode your teeth’s enamel.

As a beauty solution, ACV’s antimicrobial properties can help clean up acne. However, there are no scientific studies yet to back up this claim so you have to proceed with caution. This has only been recommended via personal testimonials. You can also try to apply ACV to soften your hair. It can help remove the excessive build up from your hair care products. However, there are no studies that can confirm this as of now.

Proper Use of Apple Cider Vinegar

Should you opt to give ACV a shot, there are important guidelines to follow. For one, ACV should never be taken straight if you are going to put it in your mouth. A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar should be mixed with 8 oz. of water or more. It has to be diluted because the taste and the smell is not that pleasant. Acetic acid, as mentioned earlier, can be extremely harsh especially in high concentrations. The same has to be done for external uses. Besides, adding lemon juice or water will not only render it a super cleaner, but you can also make it go a long way. Braggs is a brand of ACV that’s quite popular. It is organic, non-processed and unfiltered. It has this so-called “mother” found at the bottom of the bottle which is a hazy substance that gives rise to the good bacteria and the enzymes that activate apple cider vinegar’s healthful benefits.

Finally, ACV can prove to be beneficial for you but as you noticed, not all of its claims have scientific evidence so you got to take extra care when using or consuming it.

A P90X fire sale, say what?  All I can say is wow!  I think this is the very first time that P90X has ever been discounted for as long as I can remember. If you are looking for a P90X deal then I have to say that this is the very best discount you will find.  Here’s why, not only will you be getting P90X but you will also be getting P90X Plus and two P90X One on One work outs. All I can say is this is an amazing price for an amazing product. The P90X Plus alone used to retail for $59.90, P90X is $119.95 and the 2 Bonus P90X One on One workouts have a retail value of $40.00. Add that all up and it comes to $219.85 and right now you can get all of this for $59.95. I have no idea how long this special deal is going to last but I do know this, I’ve never seen it priced this low. If you have ever thought about P90X before, now is the time to pick it up. (even if you’re not ready for it)  You can always do P90X first and then pull out the big guns (P90X) when you are ready.  P90X is the work out that started it all for me. I have done several rounds and I have also completed P90X2 and P90X3. Now more than 5 years later I am a Beachbody Coach full time and in the best shape of my like at 43 all thanks to P90X and Tony Horton.

I have no idea how long this p90X sale will last but I have a feeling it won’t be long so if I were you I would head on over to the P90X Sale page and place your order.

If you are looking for a workout that will change the way you look at fitness plus get you in awesome shape that you have to look no further than P90X.  Check out the video below to see my results from the very first time I did P90X.


Yes it was hard. Yes I struggled. Yes I wanted to quit, but guess what? P90X was the workout program that changed my fitness habits forever. To this day I workout 6-7 days a week.  It is a “lifestyle” for me not to mentions it is also the fountain of youth. 🙂 If I can do it you can do it. All you have to do is take the first step.

One of the main reasons I recommend P90X and all of the Beachbody workouts is because I know without a shadow of a doubt that you will get results.  You also have a full money back guarantee for 90 days. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is, I think Beachbody definitely does that with this kind of guarantee.

If you are ready to get start started with P90X just click here.

The firs time I did P90X I remember saying to myself that I would gladly have paid double the price for P90X which would have been about $240 bucks but heck for $59.90 I just might pick a couple more up for Xmas gifts.

Think you too old for P90X?  Bob was 60 the first time he did P90X. Check out his results below.

If Bob is not an inspiration than I don’t know what it is.  If you have questions feel free to leave a comment below and remember, I will be here with you every step of the way.  Grab this awesome P90X deal now by clicking here.

Can You Really Make Money as a Beachbody Coach

can you make money as a beachbody coachCan you make money as a Beachbody coach?

Inquiring minds want to know and I bet you want to know too. I guess I will give you the long and the short of it. The short of it is “YES” you can make money as a Beachbody coach. The long of it is “Do you have what it takes to make money as a Beachbody coach?” The opportunity is the same for all of us and  if you are on this page you owe it to yourself to get all of your questions answered because if you let it, Beachbody will change your life. How do I know, because it has changed mine.

Let’s get the legal stuff out of the way.

“Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity. Each Coach’s income depends on his or her own efforts, diligence, and skill. See our Statement of Independent Coach Earnings  for the most recent information on our Coaches’ actual incomes.”

Now that we have that out of the way let’s get down to business. There is no ceiling at Beachbody, you can earn as much money as you want and the number will be up to you. When I got stated with Beachbody it was all because of P90X. I went through 90 days of that program and I was truly amazed. I said to myself that I owe it to others to share this with as many people as possible and hence, my business was born. Beachbody has come along way since then by adding in Shakeology, The Ultimate Reset, Hammer and Chisel and more hit at home workouts so my business gets easier every day.

Keeping It Simple

By keeping things simple in our Beachbody business we make  easy for others to have success physically and financially. We focus on the “3 Vital Behaviors.”

  1. Invite. Invite. Invite (Share your business, share your products, make recommendations)
  2. Be Proof the Products Work (Be a walking success story in progress)
  3. Personal Development (you will get a “Success on Demand” section with your coach business but I also encourage you to read at least 10 pages daily)

If you can do these 3 things consistently you will have success. How much success? Well once again that is up to you. There will be people who perform these activities for 1 hr a day and others 7-8 hours a day. I’ll let you guess which one will have greater success and at a faster rate. The great thing is, you get to choose.


What I want to do now is show you how far I have come in this business. I was torn whether I should post these pictures or not but I feel it is the best way to show you what is possible.  Keep in mind, when I first started I was sitting right there where you are now.  Then I took action and made the decision to go for it and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Yes, as you can see from the picture below there were many weeks and months that I made a big fat -0-.  Persistence pays off. 🙂

0 commission

Yep, I had some zeroes but I kept marching forward.

Beachbody Coach Earnings 2009

2009 Earnings

As you can see my 2009 Beachbody earnings were not too much to write home about but I can tell you one thing, I was in great shape and it also felt really good getting those checks even though they were small.

Let’s move on to 2010

beachbody coach earning 2010

2010 Earnings

The time period between 6-2009 and 6-2010 was a very crucial time for me and as you can see my income grew by almost 10 times. (When was the last time you got a raise like that from your boss?” This was the point I decided I wanted to give up my Real Estate career of 18 years and become a full time Beachbody coach. I would jump in full time at the end of 2010.  Had I replaced my income? Well, not yet but I was taking a leap of faith. Luckily Real Estate was real good to me when it was booming so I have built up some nice reserves to cover me during this building process.

Let’s Move on to 2011

beachbody coach earning 2011

2011 Earnings

As you can see my income grew about another 4-5 times. I am stoked and there is no stopping me now. The key is consistency. It doesn’t matter when people say “no”. I just keep on moving on. There are millions and millions of people who need what we have. We are the only home based business that offers a total health and wellness solution.

Let’s Move on to 2012

Beachbody Coach Earnings 2012

2012 Earnings

2012 coach earnings

2012 2nd Business Center Earnings

All I can say is MORE GROWTH… 🙂 Looks like about around 30%+ give or take and I was able to open up another business center. What does this mean? Well to keep it simple I was able to sponsor myself and build that business too. This translates into another weekly check. 🙂  Everyone has been complaining about how horrible the economy has been but it doesn’t show in my numbers. You can choose to stay in a down economy or make your own economy.

Let’s Move on to 2013

Beachbody Coach Earnings 2013

2013 Earnings

2013 2nd Business Center Earnings

Even more growth for 2013 and my main goal now is to help others duplicate my success. I am in the best shape of my life. I have completed several rounds of P90x, have done P90X2, Insanity, Asylum, Body Beast, T25 and I am anxiously awaiting the release of P90X3.

Become a Beachbody Coach


In addition to what you see above I also receive a quarterly Star Diamond Bonus, $500 per month Elite bonus (for 2013, check out Jeff Ochoa reaches 2012 Elite Coach Status), have earned a trip to the Atlantis in the Bahamas, a trip to Disney World, 3 trips to the Laguna Cliffs Mariott in Dana Point California (the 3rd of which is next week) and have already qualified for our 2014 Caribbean Cruise aboard the Royal Carribean’s Liberty of the Seas. We also attend The Coach Summit every year in Las Vegas and it is always an amazing time.

What the numbers don’t show

What you don’t see here are the thousands of people who’s life that I have impacted directly and indirectly.  We have an awesome team and we are definitely making an impact on ending the trend of obesity.
