What to Drink Between Meals – Simple ACV Recipe – Thomas DeLauer
Eating things in between meals, like snacking, could be one of the things that really slows down fat loss a lot. There’s two primary reasons. I’ve talked about it in other videos, but I’m going to break them down really quick today in this video. Then I’m going to give you something that I drink in between my meals that seems to help the hunger pangs, but also makes it so that I feel like I’m getting a little bit more of an effect. Plus, there’s also some concrete evidence backing up some of the ingredients that I have in this. So we’re going to talk all about that.
So we’re going to be cooking up some stuff, or I guess mixing up some stuff. But first, let me give you a quick bit of science. In between meals is where fat burning occurs. I do not care if you care intermittent fasting, if you are keto, if you are a carboholic, if you are vegan, if you are paleo. I do not care. In between the meals is where the magic happens. What happens is when you eat food, no matter what you eat, you have an insulin spike that occurs to some degree. That insulin spike flips a switch and puts you in absorptive mode. Whether you are gaining fat when you eat or not is irrelevant. All of it is for certain is that you are definitely not burning fat at that point in time. You burn fat when you are not eating. Because when insulin levels come back down, glucagon comes up. And when glucagon comes up, that’s what activates cyclic adenosine monophosphate. That’s what activates all these things that allow fatty acids to be mobilized and burned. Plain and simple.
The other thing we have to pay attention to is gut motility. When we take a break from eating, even for a few hours between meals, and I mean anything, not a single peanut, our digestive system has a chance to actually recover. Therefore meaning it’s more powerful at burning fat when it comes time to digest the food and also just makes it so bacteria can balance back out. So we get the right balance of what is called the firmicutes and the bacteroidetes bacteria. Not going to go down that route.
Anyways, I drink this and it tastes freaking awesome. All right. So all I’ve got here is I’ve got 10 to 12 ounces of water. Then I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to add as much apple cider vinegar as I really like. This is what’s going to give it the bite. With apple cider vinegar, I’m usually just going to do, I don’t know, maybe three table spoons. Just kind of eyeball it there. Maybe even closer to four. I like a good bite. Here’s the thing. In between meals, the acidic acid that is in the apple cider vinegar is not only going to help you digest faster and get you through that gut motility phase faster, but also helps what is called uncoupling protein 1.
Now, there’s a multitude of studies that I could talk about when it comes to apple cider vinegar, but I don’t even want to bore you with that. Next up, I add just a dash of salt. You can use Himalayan, you can use Redmond real salt. I’m a fan of these guys just because it’s good quality stuff and it’s made here in the states. Now the thing with salt is it’s going to trigger what is called an NST receptor. A lot of times you get hungry in between meals because signals get crossed.
I don’t know. That was maybe a quarter teaspoon or so. Here’s the big one. I use some ginger juice. Now the reason I use ginger juice is because it’s a huge digestive benefit. So I’m adding a fair bit because I like the bite of it. Now if you’ve ever had those Bragg’s apple cider vinegar drinks, I’ve talked about them in other videos, we’re essentially making our own for a little bit cheaper, but also something that we have a little bit more control over. The ginger juice contains gingerols. Gingerols are going to do a lot of things from and anti-inflammatory standpoint. So it’s going to help mitigate some of the inflammation that occurs simply as a result of eating in the first place.
They have it in a 32 ounce size. They have it in a really small size. You can get them on Amazon. I linked out to them below so you can check them out. They’re super awesome, really cool people. Then the next thing that I’m going to add in there is I’m going to add as much stevia as I need, which is usually going to be probably a good 10 drops or so. This all depends on how much ginger you put in there honestly.
