Well, the week is over, and although the cider vinegar didn't cause bloating, it caused lots and lots of heartburn and also caused pains in left side of my waist (details at the end).
So before I tried any of these, I was not experiencing bloating or heartburn.
Week 1: Quarter of a lemon squeezed into warm water in the morning caused me bloating.
Week 2: Stopped the lemon water and the bloating slowly disappeared. Took about a week.
Week 3: A teaspoon of cider vinegar in warm water in the mornings gave me very uncomfortable heartburn, still experiencing it.
Week 4: I have stopped the cider vinegar and am hoping the heartburn will be gone by tomorrow.
The pains to the side of the waist was on the left side, I think the kidney type of area. The pain would last about 30 minutes soon after waking up and would go like this:
1. Pain for about 20 seconds
2. No pain for about 90 second
3. Pain for about 20 seconds
4. No pain for about 90 seconds
This would continue for about 30 minutes. This happened 3 times during this week. It wasn't extreme pain, more of a dull pain where I felt look squeezing my waist area, roughly around the kidney area I think.
So what does all this mean? Why the bloating with lemon water, and why the heartburn and waist pain with cider vinegar?
I just wanted to start lemon water because of the benefits, I wasn't expecting all this...
