In this video, Dr. Berg talks about when to consume the apple cider vinegar drink. Apple Cider Vinegar helps with the gut, digestion, blood sugar and reduce hunger or cravings. It is a great transition tool as you are doing keto-adaptation into fat burning, and lemon which helps prevent kidney stones. He also talks about uric acid stones, the common type of stones when doing the ketogenic diet.
So I had another question, when do I consume my Apple Cider Vinegar drink so let me just create another short video on that. A lot of people like to do it at their meals which is totally fine. Personally, I like to do it in the morning, sometime I would do it with a meals, sometime I do it in the morning, sometimes I’ll do both. But in the morning, i’ll do about 16 ounces of water. 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, I use braggs. You can use, pretty much use any, try to do organic if you can. And then 2 teaspoons of lemon, try to do organic lemon juice. And sometimes I do a tiny little bit of sea salt and I’ll dissolve that in there. Simple because when you are in the low carbohydrate diet, you are gonna dump a lot of water. You are not gonna have the volume of water that you have before which could trigger low blood pressure if you don’t have enough volume of fluid because it’s the salt that holds the volume. Plus, lack of sodium because you do lose electrolytes in the ketogenic diet could create some muscle weakness as well and what’s called keto flu. All these could be remedied by a little bit of salt. You basically need more salt when you are doing a keto (ketogenic diet) like 1 teaspoon a day. If you are doing a high carbohydrate diet, you don’t wanna do even that much because you are gonna retain fluid and keto (ketogenic diet) cause you to lose fluid. So this is the drink that I like to consume. The apple cider vinegar could help with the digestion, helps blood sugars, it helps reduce hunger and cravings if you have that, It’s a great transition tool as you are doing keto adaptation into fat burning. The lemon is really good to prevent kidney stones. The type of stone that is more common with the ketogenic diet is the uric acid stones cause uric acid does go up a little bit when you are in keto (ketogenic diet). But this is really related to pH. So in otherwords if you keep your pH a little bit higher, you are not gonna get this uric acid. If you have strips, you can measure your urine, you wanna keep it 6 to 6.5 maybe even 6.8. That’s perfect! You don’t necessarily want it 5 if you have a predisposition to kidney stones or gout. Just a little tip there. And the way that you would handle that, is the lemon juice helps and also what helps is potassium citrate which is an alkalizer and all the vegetables that you are consuming. Another way to slightly raise the pH to make it slightly more alkaline is to add the raw wheatgrass juice powder to it in another shaker bottle, shake it up. Some people mix them both together. So there is different ways to handle the pH if you are concerned about having higher levels of uric acid.
