This whole acai berry thing is a scam. Acai berries are high in antioxidants. A diet high in antioxidant foods can increase your metabolism. An increase in metabolism can burn more calories. More calories burned can result in weight loss. Acai berries cause weight loss! That is the big "stretch" these con artists are selling. Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than regular blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. At 10 times the price because they are "exotic". The "cleanse" that usually come with them contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. There is no such thing as a "fat burner ". Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner. None of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program. So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money? You are spending somewhere between $2 and $4 per day on products that are not approved or guaranteed to do anything. The same "stretch of the imagination" applies to the green tea, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, gojiberry, fruta planta, and african mango seed extract pills out there. That kind of money pays for a great gym membership. The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin. A healthy diet high in both soluble and insoluble fiber is the only safe way there is.

There is no reason that you would be banned from eating an acai berry, or drinking acai berry juice. If the acai is banned, then so should be blueberries, apples, bananas, and cranberries. I really can't figure out how the acai berry turned into such a bogus fad. It doesn't do anything for you above and beyond what you would get from many other common fruits. People talk about it being high in antioxidants, but that isn't really true. There are plenty of commonly eaten fruits that are higher. A well conducted study in 2007, set out to determine how fruits ranked in terms of their level of antioxidants. The study showed that an apple had a total antioxidant capacity, or TAC, of 5900. The acai berry was only measured to be 1800. Pretty poor for a "super fruit". Not to mention, let me clear up something about all the buzz surrounding antioxidants. People seem to think that if they can just pour a dump truck full of antioxidants down their throat they'll live longer, healthier lives. Not so fast. As you may know, antioxidants bind free radicals in our body. One way our cells can be attacked is when they are bound by free radicals, thus oxidizing it. So to reduce the amount of free radicals is good, right? Well, to a degree. But our human biochemistry is not as simple as the seller's of these fads want you to believe. The oxidation from free radicals also has important benefits in our body, like converting fat into energy, and attacking bacteria. Scientists have studied antioxidants extensively, and here is what they've found. A certain amount is good, but too much is bad. And the source of the antioxidant is certainly relevant (the best sources being vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene). The point is, go eat an apple. And quit paying top dollar for every health fad that is featured on Oprah.

All diet pills are scams. All of them. There is no scientific evidence that acai helps lose weight, only that acai has very high levels of antioxidants which help protect against cancer. Since "supplements" like these acai pills are not regulated by the FDA, there is no guarantee that there is even any acai in them. They can put pretty much whatever they want on the box but there's no one making sure that it's true. It's a huge waste of your money. Working out and eating right are how the pounds come off.

Acai berry is super healthy, but I wouldn't use the diet pills. Those are most likely a scam. Acai itself is super full of healthy fats and nutrients, so if you can find some frozen pulp, you could try it out in smoothies and stuff!

swap out brown rice or quinoa yes even the new super food which both add up to about 220 calories per cup for cauliflower or roasted peppers that are only about 30 calories per cup

I have tried many Acai products and the winner in my book is Sambazon. You need to be very careful when buying Acai products (I don't trust any of the ones you can buy in a grocery store) because if the companies do not process them correctly they can lose many of their health benefit. Sambazon sells their goods based on the quality of the product, and not on multi level marketing. It didn't take long to notice some really great health benefits from drinking Sambazon. I have more energy and focus and have been sleeping a lot better. It also tastes amazing, so it will be very easy to introduce to your family. I have a site dedicated to Acai so if you'd like to learn more about Acai and how to get your hands on Sambazon visit: http://www.the-acai-fruit.com
