Swimsuit Slimdown Drink by Dr. Oz

 Swimsuit Slimdown Drink--steb 1 by Dr. Oz

I love grapefruit  and the idea of a swimsuit slimdown, sooo this concoction just seemed like a must try! Turns out that it’s not too  bad and has a a kick in the glass!

Ingredients:

1 cup grape fruit juice

2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon of honey for sweetness>>>optional<<< (only 20 extra cals)

Direction & Benefits:

Drink Dr. Oz’s secret slimdown drink before every meal and you’ll literally burn away your fat while enjoying a citrusy delight.

The juice from grapefruit  is loaded with vitamin C, which will help you burn fat faster, especially during exercise. In fact, a study showed that people with adequate vitamin C levels burned 30% more fat during moderate exercise than individuals low in vitamin C. Meanwhile, the acetic acid contained in the vinegar may switch on genes your body needs to pump out fat-burning proteins. . Drink Dr. Oz’s secret slimdown drink before every meal and you’ll literally burn away your fat while enjoying a citrusy delight

Personal thoughts:

I have been tolerating the drink. I was able to finish half while cooking dinner, but the drink was working as an appetite suppressor (not what I was going for at the time while I was chefing up Parmesan Chicken ) so I saved the rest for later in order to thoroughly enjoy dinner. Next time, I plan on giving myself a bit more time (greater than 5 minutes) to get this drink down , however the bf prefers to chug the thing and get it over with.  I trying to learn to like it– mainly waiting around to see if slim down thing is true or not… the investigation continues!

ps. let me know what you think!!

    Well did it work?

    Has this worked for anyone?

      I hate to say it, but I quit it… the apple vinegar three times a day was just not happening.. I did it once a day before dinner for about a week, but I didn’t loose any weight (however they still say once a day is better than nothing)… What I am trying now is different types of protein shakes to help improve my protein intake and metabolism. I’ll post about that once I decide which is most tasty, nutritious and keeps me full!

      Hi. I started a Facebook challenge with this drink a week ago. So far, after day 4 I lost 3lbs and 1inch on my waist (did not check yesterday bc I do feel the difference!). My neighbor weighed in last night and she lost 2lbs. We did an initial weigh in last Saturday. So so far it is working for me. I drink the whole thing about 10mins before I eat. I exercise pretty intensely on the regular (before and since this challenge). I use grapefruit juice and I pretty much love the taste. I make the drink 30min before consumption and places it in the freezer to chill for 15-20min. I can see the difference mostly on my love handles and belly!

    Did it work??

    • pinvestigation April 2, 2013 at 4:35 pm #

      so i’m sad to say but I sort of just stopped doing it once I ran out of grapefruit juice. I will say if you do start doing it to just chug the drink—the concoction does not taste terrible at first, but it has one nasty after taste. I would end up gargling some water after downing the cup. Let me know if it works out for you!!

      • foxyandcarver April 3, 2013 at 4:14 am #

        Ahaa, that sounds so foul to chug that concoction! Did you see any benefits to doing it? I’m tempted to try it, but I feel a bit doubtful about these sort of remedies! I don’t think much can beat good old exercise!

        I love your blog by the way! Great stuff. Jess

      • pinvestigation April 3, 2013 at 10:37 am #

        i didn’t see any benefit, but i didn’t do it for long.. I’m with you, I just stick with exercise!

    Ugh. Too much vinegar. Made me sick after 2 days. Now I’m too scared to drink it again for fear of more nausea. :(

    • pinvestigation April 4, 2013 at 4:21 pm #

      yea, the drink has a terrible kick to it. I could handle downing the drink once a day, but certainly not three time a day..

    • Melissa August 25, 2013 at 8:49 am #

      I have read it was 2 teaspoon of apple cider vineger instead of tablespoon.Maybe that would make a difference?

      • Anonymous November 5, 2013 at 8:05 pm #

        I have tried this as well, and I agree it taste better with 2 tsp instead of 2 tbsp. I also tried it with welche’s grape juive and pineapple juice. I loved the pineapple juice better than the grape juice.

      • pinvestigation November 6, 2013 at 7:38 pm #

        hmm, is it working for you with the changes?

      • Anonymous January 30, 2014 at 7:08 am #

        I have this recipe and mine also says 2 teaspoons, not 2 tablespoons. That’s a huge difference in taste and on your digestive system.

      • pinvestigation January 30, 2014 at 10:48 am #

        I’m sure it does taste better. I got my recipe straight from Dr Oz’s website:http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/swimsuit-slimdown-plan

      Mind sharing your success story?

      • pinvestigation May 16, 2013 at 3:43 pm #

        i have not had success with the slim down drink b-c i quit after a few days when i ran out of juice… However I purchased the book ¨It starts with food¨ and plan to share my experience with a 30 day detox!

      How long before you started seeing results?

    • mommyofthree June 14, 2013 at 10:48 am #

      I have lost 9 pounds already !!

      • pinvestigation June 14, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

        that’s awesome!

      • ghenie July 20, 2013 at 12:26 am #

        how long have you done it?

    • Tiwana June 23, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

      Hannah! You are correct. It is working for me. I exercise 6 days a week very intensely but stalled in my progress. This drink, in one week, tightened my core and I dropped 4lbs. My neighbor is doing it as well with now exercise and she’s lost 2lbs. We will continue this.

  6. CoCo June 17, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

    Sooooo did it “work”? Actually addin this to my “already eatin better” but need some ‘snacks’

    • Tiwana July 29, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

      Coco I sank on Bare Naked brand trail mix and for night cravings I drink instant oat meal. It works because these are filling foods. I recommend you try it…if you like oatmeal💪

    Does it have to be fresh grapefruit juice or in the container from the store?

    • pinvestigation July 22, 2013 at 10:15 am #

      nope, store bought grape fruit juice is fine

      • Stephanie July 29, 2013 at 9:35 am #

        Today is my first day trying it. The recipe I found said you can use orange or pineapple juice as well. I had some orange juice in the ‘fridge…it wasn’t bad. I could taste the vinegar a little bit. I did not add the honey. I’ll buy some grapefruit juice today and to see the difference.

    • Tiwana July 29, 2013 at 8:58 pm #

      I bought the Simple Grapefruit juice because its no sugar added. I seem to be different as I actually love the taste. Been doing it for over a month now and I tell you I feel the difference when I don’t drink it. Digestion seems slower. With this drink, that stuffed bloated feeling is gone as well. The Dr. Oz method is actually a drink, a salad, and a meal. This week I’m am going to add the salad as well! Yay!😜

  8. Tammy Ellis September 5, 2013 at 11:15 am #

    Have started drinking this drink and is actually isn’t bad. Just curious to see how well it works. i

    • pinvestigation September 5, 2013 at 3:31 pm #

      I’m trying it out again.. currently drinking the concoction at the moment. Last time I tried it out I ran out of grapefruit juice, got lazy and stopped so I personally didn’t see any results. Hopefully this time around I will be more dedicated =)

  9. Anonymous September 12, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    I’ve been drinking this for about a week now and while I can’t say I notice anything on the scale, I have noticed that my tummy doesn’t appear as bloated as before. Maybe the vinegar and vitamin C are helping to flush out water or something. I think i’ll continue it for a while to see if I get any tangible weight loss. By the way, I walk 5-6 times a day with a little jogging in between.

  10. Lisa October 14, 2013 at 5:44 am #

    It’s supposed to be 2 teaspoons of vinegar, not 2 tablespoons, that might be why no one liked the taste. With 2 teaspoons and the honey, it’s actually a really nice taste.

    • pinvestigation October 14, 2013 at 10:20 am #

      That does sound tastier, but I found the recipe from Dr Oz’s website that says the following:
      Swimsuit Slimdown Tip 1: Sip Smart

      Before every meal, try Dr. Oz’s secret swimsuit slimdown drink of a choice – a mixture of grapefruit juice and apple cider vinegar. Simply mix 1 cup of grapefruit juice with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, stir, and enjoy. The juice is loaded with vitamin C, which will help you burn fat faster, especially during exercise. In fact, a study showed that people with adequate vitamin C levels burned 30% more fat during moderate exercise than individuals low in vitamin C. Meanwhile, the acetic acid contained in the vinegar may switch on genes your body needs to pump out fat-burning proteins. If you find the drink a bit tart, add 1 teaspoon of honey, which only adds 20 calories, for sweetness. Drink Dr. Oz’s secret slimdown drink before every meal and you’ll literally burn away your fat while enjoying a citrusy delight.
