There has been a lot of hype about Acai (pronounced “ah-sigh-ee”) Berry as a magical elixir for weight loss. Apparently the devious marketers are using Oprah’s name to promote the Acai Berry as a weight loss solution.
I was shocked the other day when a lady came to me and asked if Acai Berry would work for weight loss. She told me that she had read on the internet that it works wonders. And no exercise needed………..and its also recommended by Oprah, so it seems.
Sales of acai products catapulted to $13.5 million last year from $435,000 two years previously.
The acai craze didn’t begin but was fueled by discussions on the “Oprah Winfrey Show,” where at least two of her experts — dermatologist Dr. Nicholas Perricone and heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz — have mentioned the so-called superfood.
Neither suggested acai was a weight-loss product.
Apparently lawyers from Harpo Production (Oprah’s production company) are going after all the companies that are using Oprah’s and Dr Oz’s name to market this product.
As we have always stated, there is no short-cut when it comes to weight loss. For weight loss, SLOW is FAST and FAST is SLOW.
Attempt to use a quick fix and you will spend more time reaching your goal then if you just attempt to do it right from the start!
Acai Berry is a superfood. It has phenomenal amounts of antioxidants and this can only be a plus to health. Take it for its nutritional benefits but not for weight loss purposes.
