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.
