Weight loss suggestion - Acai Berry Extract

Postby momie32 » Thu Jul 22, 2010 3:29 am


I am a mother of two beautiful children and after my second child, I had gained a lot of unnecessary weight on me which is really freaking me out...One of my friend has suggested me to try some Acai Berry Extract.

Can someone please suggest me for the same, so that I may consider using this extract but I am not sure really if it is helpful for me or not. So advise ... !!!

Have a nice time and thanks for your patience in reading this. Ellisa Cheers

anything I see that is PLASTERED on the internet (except for porn) is usually a con. And seeing that half of all ads are for the aforementioned berry, I'd be skeptical. Because of said huge market base, asking people on the internet is maybe a bad idea. Bring it up with your doctor or pharmacist on your next visit? I'd be half interested to learn a professionals opinion on it too!

I tried it, I only lost 1 kilo on it, but I can not say if that was diet related or because of the berry? I did it for over 1 month.

There is no magic pill/berry/laser beam/vibration machine.

You need to eat less and get moving more!

Hi Ellisa,

I admire your efforts. However, the Acai berry weight loss programs that seem to be everywhere online are a waste of time!

Acai berry has some very good health benefits because of the antioxidants they contain but they certainly don't have any magical weight-loss properties.

The promoters of so-called weight loss products with Acai berry in them usually combine it with psyllium husks, which is a fibre and helps food pass through the intestines faster or they combine it with chromium, which is a glucose disposal agent and may help to curb cravings and keep insulin low. I guess this is how they get away with calling these products 'weight loss' products; it has nothing to do with the qualities of the Acai berry.

In saying this, if you really want to 'push the boundaries', you may say that because Acai berry helps the body function better due to the antioxidants it contains, a better functioning body means that you may lose weight faster but I can guarantee that the additional weight loss will NOT be significant at all.

Plus, many of the online Acai products lock you in to continuity programs that are very hard to get out of, whereby they keep sending you product and keep charging your credit card. However, this may have changed now.

If you want to use Acai for the health benefits- great! Just don't expect any miraculous weight loss results from using it.

You are far better off just sticking with the fundamental weight loss principles that have been proven to work. Here are a couple of tips:

- Have 5 or 6 small meals a day
- Have a small portion of protein with every meal
- Drink plenty of water
- Control your sources of carbs (without cutting them out altogether)
- Exercise regularly (30 minutes 4-5 times a week)
- Take a multivitamin and fish oil supplements
- Perform some resistance exercise

I wish you the greatest success with your weight loss efforts!

I don´t trust much in natural products.

Of course, most pharmaceutic products are extracts or synthetic forms of a substance found in nature - but whenever such a substance is found, you will soon find a REAL pharmaceutic product in your drug store. By real, I not only mean a pill, but a pill from a known corporation, like Bayer, Roche, Eli Lilly or such.

Also, many of the products that actually help losing weight have chemicals like carnitine, which they don´t put on the label and can alter your metabolism. Some of those can be used, but are save only if supervised by your physician.

At the end of the day - all those pills and diet drinks are responsible for maybe 2% of your weight loss, the rest is simple, like Jewles said: eat less and move more.
Better spend those money on a good stationary bike.

Also, the Acai berry has been unfortunately (though not exclusively) linked to a particular almost scam (it's technically legit, just sneaky) by some of its online retailers... basically if you don't read the fine print of the "trials" agreements you may get stung with a monthly charge.

If you're going to give it a go (and hey, as long as you're making a decision based on the info and not just good and impressive marketing, do whatever you like), be sure you know what you're buying and signing on for.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

If you want to try it then don't risk buying it on the internet - just go to GNC or somewhere and get it from them

Hi I am new here,

Just read this post, and may I suggest you try green coffee bean extract. I saw it on today tonight, went and got it and I lost 6 KG in one month. Yes I have exercised and ate well too, but initially I lost 2.5 KG in first 10 days on it alone!

I have friends who didnt experience the same results but they had much less to lose..

Good luck

I like the acai berry pills, and altho they arent a magic pill, and wont suddenly make you loose inches and kilograms, they do make you feel better, clearer skin, and just over wellbeing, which in turn motivate me to keep going.
I bought mine from a online health shop, as the ones in the ads, as previous posters mentioned, have companies recharging credit cards and even tho they claim a free trial, you end up out of pocket with hidden expenses and postage of $2.95 is not to australia usually, and with conversion rates etc, can cost ALOT.

Hi Ellisa, first off I wanted to congratulate you on your children. I myself had 2 children and I know how hard it can be to lose that extra belly fat. I did try out the [advertising link removed] weight loss supplements and found they did help. I was a bit skeptical at first but figured I'd give it a shot, and it ended up going great. I lost 7 pounds off my waist and I plan on losing more. I would say definitley try it out :)

Hope this helped! :wink:
