Acai Berry Diet

Ever heard of Acai berries? The first place I heard about them was in my Booster Juice smoothee. After running at the gym, sometimes I'd stop there and get a BJ (lol) with protein and acai in it.

The berry comes from a palm tree, found mainly in South America. Over the last few years, there has been an explosion in demand for acai because of its "miraculous weight loss" properties.

Like every single thing ever written on the internet, take this information with a huge grain of salt.Although there are some nutritional benefits to eating concentrated acai berries, there are plenty of people who believe they can eat the fruit and continue to pick breakfast, lunch and dinner off the McDonald's Dollar Menu. If this were true, there would be no fat people.

Like any diet, acai berries provide a healthy, nutritional supplement to your healthy eating and exercise routine. However, there is no documented, scientific evidence that they influence dramatic weight loss, cure diabetes, or increase penis size. In fact, if you’re looking for anti-oxidants, you’re better off drinking a glass of red wine. These are claims made by affiliate marketers who are trying to make an easy, sleazy dollar from you.

Nevertheless, these outrageous claims still circle around the internet, especially among middle aged women. In my opinion, you're better off buying frozen fruit, low-fat yogurt, and protein powder from Wal-Mart to make one delicious (and healthy) smoothee.

I remember a few years ago during the whole herballife and Tahitian Noni juice craze, everyone lost their poop over those products as well. It seems like American consumers are just to right for the picking (no pun intended)every few years when somebody discovers a new "miracle" fruit...

Unsurprisingly, my sister's trying this one atm. You'd think that after the first million diets that don't work, she would think "hmm maybe diets don't work".

Take it all with a pinch of salt - even if the diet insists on 'no salt'!

Acai berries were discovered in Amazon and have been a rage since then. They are available in many forms such as juices, smoothies, supplements and many more. Acai supplements are ideal as they are packed with antioxidants, minerals,Vitamin A and Vitamin C. The antioxidants present in Acai berry can make your skin look healthy and younger.Acai is being termed as mother of all fruits because of the high content of antioxidants in it.
