Acai Berry Diet And Weight Loss

2009 September 25

The Acai berry diet is not an effective diet at all. Even though there are a multitude of programs and products on the market today touting the success of this so-called ‘super fruit’, there is no real bearing in the abilities of Acai to help you lose weight. Oprah does not endorse or recommend this product. She uses it for her own personal use, but not with weight loss in mind.

Dr. Oz has also never endorsed or promoted this product for weight loss. Since it was seen on the show, though, many people assume that the ads they see for ‘Oprah-approved Acai berry diet’ or ‘As seen on Oprah Acai weight loss plan’ mean that it’s endorsed by Oprah and therefore going to work.

Not true. And for the record, just because Oprah endorses something or associates herself with it doesn’t make it better or more effective. People tend to think that because Oprah is such a talk show superhero that her name is a stamp of approval on just about anything. However, if the experts (doctors, scientists, nutritionists, etc.) don’t think there is any merit to the Acai berry diet, why would you believe a talk show host that promotes it? It’s easy to get caught up in the hype, but you need to make sure that you don’t let it get the best of you.

The Acai berry supplements that you get are supposed to be used in conjunction with other weight loss plans and diets, including colon cleansing products to enhance health and wellbeing through waste elimination and weigh loss. While advocates will tout that the antioxidants in the Acai berry will promote a healthy, general sense of wellbeing that supports weight loss, this is far from the case in most instances. Plus, there are a number of unsubstantiated claims that the Acai berry diet is helpful in other areas. While acai berries may have some nutritional benefits, they in no way will make you lose weight.

Many will market the berry to offer improved digestion, cleansing and detoxifying elements, immune boosters, support of cardiovascular health, a slowed aging process, and more. Not all of these claims are supported by scientific research, so be careful what you believe. It might be a nutritional supplement to have on hand, but it’s not going to be your miracle cure to being overweight. Keep this in mind as you shop for your vitamins, supplements, and consider your dieting options, because you don’t want to get swindled like so many people already have.
