  • I would expect them to be the same as any other half-baked, ridiculous diet fad: astonishing results claimed by the people who sell it, 100% based on people who happened to have eaten whatever it is they're selling at the same time they started eating sensibly and exercising enough... magic.

    Acai berry is no healthier than blueberries... but the blueberry diet fad went away decades ago and acai is at least 'new' to North Americans...The reason why people who live where acai berries grow are thin is because they can't afford enough calories and have to work too hard every day to gain weight.

  • I tried the acai berry tablets, it basically went right thru me.

  • They are a natural laxative. That's why the claim is there. You will poop the weight off.

  • I've heard on the news (wish I could remember what) but it's making people sick. Just be careful hon if you decide to take it. Look it up on the internet first........
