  • Oh dont waste your time with acai berry. It doesnt work for everyone.

    I take the amino acid L-Carnitine to convert stored fat into muscle and energy. With it take CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) to keep the weight off so your your diet does not backfire on you. You need 2000mg of L-carnitine and 3400mg of CLA for serious weight loss results. I also like to take natural apple cider vinegar. If you put 2 teaspoons in a 16oz. bottle, mix with some natural honey and sip it throughout the day it will curb your appetite and cleanse your body. You can still eat while you do this.

    CLA is not recommended by everyone but it worked for me. L-Carnitine and Natural Apple Cider are very highly recommended for daily use.

  • I havent taken it it... BUT... I know that the best way to loose weight, is to do cardio... you can make it fun! Go on walks with friends or your kids, join a kickball team etc. And eating right. Lots of veggies, the right proteins and lots and lots of WATER! Good luck!!! After my baby is born, I to will be throwing in the fatty towel and loosing bout 60lbs :) Woo Hoo for choosing to be healthy!

  • I did the acia berry and it didn't help me lose any real weight. It pretty much just makes you go doodoo alot and cleans out your bowels.

  • I took it and it clogged up my bowels. You have to take massive doses of laxatives with it or else. Not worth taking.
