Eat Less Using Vinegar

 Recently, a few studies suggest that adding a small amount of vinegar to sugar-rich foods could lessen the sugar metabolism of that meal, thereby reducing the consumed calories.

 Here is how balsamic vinegar can promote the sense of fullness and make a person resist eating for a longer time.

 Vinegar can make the tongue more sensitive to other tastes, thereby improving satisfaction with that food. Vinegar can make one feel full longer by delaying gastric emptying time  the transit of food from the stomach to the small intestines. Vinegar is also believed to improve blood sugar control after eating.

 So, knowing the calorie-cutting edge of balsamic vinegar, you might want to sprinkle it on your fish, pasta, chicken or tuna salad, sandwiches and veggies from now on.
