Acai berry ads are everywhere and you have probably already seen your fair share. There is an attractive young lady demonstrating in some way how she lost a bunch of weight. The headline exclaims, see how I lost 30 pounds in 30 days. You want to believe the story so you can get the same results, but something just doesn’t seem right.
So, does acai berry help you lose weight? Probably. I know that doesn’t help a lot, but it is the truth. What I want to do is tell you what the acai berry will and will not do for you.
There are lots of antioxidants in acai berries. There are more antioxidants than in other super fruits like pomegranates and blueberries. It also has dietary fiber, omega fatty acids, and some protein. This combination should give you more energy and help you feel better. If you have more energy, you should be more active and burn more calories. If you burn more calories, you should lose weight. You may even lose some weight because the dietary fiber will help regulate your digestive system.
Now, you may have noticed there are a lot of “should” and “may”. That is because there simply isn’t enough data to show that acai berries will definitely help you lose weight. If you are able to harness the benefits of the acai berry, there is a good chance that you will feel better and even lose weight, but I can’t promise anything.
The one thing I will say for sure is that most of the websites claiming tremendous weight loss from acai berries are pure scams. The stories are fake, the pictures are fake, and they will probably forget to tell you how much your free trial will cost if you forget to cancel. With any offer, pay attention to the fine print and don’t fall for unbelievable claims.
I am sure you are smart enough to know a scam when you see one. Just make sure you think about what you are signing up for and eat a sensible diet when you take acai berry supplements and you will probably get good results.
