My First Diet– Kelp, Cider Vinegar, B6, and Lecithin– and it Worked!

Lecithin Kelp B-6 & Cider Vinegar. This is the first real "diet plan" I tried, backed in the mid-70's. Apparently it first popped up in a big way mid-century in women's magazines and tabloids, and I probably saw it reading at the news stand. For me, it worked.

It featured these ingredients:

Kelp is a seaweed containing nearly 30 minerals that act as natural diuretics and regulate metabolism. Rich in iodine, kelp is said to help the body adjust the rate at which it burns calories. 

Lecithin, commonly found in egg yolks or soybeans, is the second ingredient in the formula.  It facilitates the movement of fats, wastes, and nutrients in and out of our cells.  It is said to lower cholesterol and triglycerides while increasing the blood's good cholesterol (HDL) levels.  

While B6 does many things for us, in this context, it’s necessary to synthesize and break down amino acids (the building blocks of protein).  It aids in fat and carbohydrate metabolism.

And apple cider vinegar?  Entire books have been written about the therapeutic properties of raw apple cider vinegar.  Many folks take it regularly as a digestive tonic 1 Tbsp in a cup of warm water before meals.

While it is now available in pill form, when I used this diet, there were no such pills. I had to order bags of kelp and lecithin, buy b6 tablets, and get cider vinegar at the grocery store (and it wasn't the big deal that it is today, so it wasn't always easy to find. There was no amazon, so the kelp (a green powder) and lecithin (a white powder) took a while to show up.

Using this self-made supplement and a modified mostly vegetarian diet plan, I went from 220 pounds to 170 in about three months. Now you can too. Order above.



If you want to try a supplement that has all natural ingredients and no calories, this may be for you. It's tasteless, inexpensive, and features individual ingredients that are known to have positive effects whether you're dieting or not.

And-- combined with a serious diet plan-- it works. I never felt hungry, and my energy levels were enhanced. It kept me focused, and I lost weight without much exercise, I can recommend it because it worked for me!
