Hey moms!! Quick question...I am sure you have all seen the ads all over the internet about moms losing weight with the Acai Berry and Natra Pure stuff. Has anyone tried it? Does it actually work? I have a friend who is thinking about using them...but it just makes me nervous!!! What are your opinions on them?

What can I do next?

The only thing that has ever worked for me is eating less and exercising more. Everything else I have tried has been a waste of money!

Havent tried it but I thought it was a big red flag that Oprah had a huge warning on her page about not being affiliated with it. You can probably still find it.

If they are going to lie about who uses it, what else will they lie about?

Just a thought...

I don't know about the weight loss pill stuff, but the Acai juice really did wonders for my libido...speaking of, I need to get some of that again! :)

I'd love to know what at home work you landed also.

Heard about that weight loss plan. Was interested in trying someday. I need to get more info on it. I was just wondering what kind of work you do from home? I am a medical transcriptionist and work part time from home. Looking for other at home employment options for future.

Hi N.,

I just answered Amy with this same question. It follows:

"Acai berry products, if high quality, are incredible antioxidants. Weight loss and energy boosting comes from good nutrition and an abundance of antioxidants and the absence of free radicals. My husband has lost 130 pounds in the last 3 years and has not put any of it back on. That is the important part! I put him on an absorbable multivitamin that includes a mineral complex that does NOT create free radicals (most minerals do if not from pure food) and added fiber to his diet to cleanse the toxins from his digestive system. He did not change his activity level until he had actually lost 60 pounds. It is AMAZING what "really GETTING nutrition that actually absorbs in your system" will do!

I have also helped his best friend lose 50 pounds, my sister-in-law lose 25 and quite a few other friends with just a little "good" information and a suggestion of a few products, like particular vitamins and fiber, that I know work. Acai will definitely help but don't look for that one miracle because your body is too, too complex for that."

God bless and good luck,

M.

This is what one Naturopathic Physician has to say about mangosteen: http://www.kitchentablemedicine.com/index.php?s=acai. I think it's good wisdom for any of these miracle cures, but if you try it anyway at walmart and it doesn't work, I believe you could return it to walmart (with the receipt, within 90 days) and get a refund - satisfaction guaranteed. Good luck!

I have been drinking Acai juice for about 6 month. I feel great and have lots of energy (I am a grandmother). It has not helped me lose weight. One thing to be careful about. I ordered some FREE Acai Berry pills on line. The pills were free, but not the shipping. once they had my credit card number they started billing me for all kinds of stuff every couple of weeks that i did not order. we had to cancel that card and and the card company ran an investigation against them and all charges were finally dropped. I only recieved one package that i did not order and returned it unopened with confirmation of delivery so they could't charge me for that either. Try Walgreens or GNC.

The Acai berry has so many good things to take it, other then weight loss. It does help with weight loss. I wasn't lossing anything. I did everything. When I started taking it i lost weight!! I was so glad. Look it up in a search, You want belive how good it is for you. It is not a diet pill! All the doctors I have asked said it is on of the best things you can take. I buy it at walmart. All these sites have been selling fake pills.So I wouldn't buy it online at all!!! Anyone who tells you it is not good for you crazy!!

DO NOT BUY IT!!!!!
I tried the Acai Pure pills over the internet and they made me violently ill.
I got the free trial bottle and tried one pill and was sick for two days. So I put it away thinking I had eaten something, I waited and about a month later I tried it again. Same thing. I was so violently ill I thought I would need to go to the hospital. By this time I had been receiving the bottles for $90 a pop. I contacted the company and they wouldn't let me return the pills and then sent me another bottle and charged my credit card again. I had to go to my credit card and she said they have been having many problems with the company with other customers and promised to get the whole thing resolved, whih she did but it took about three months.
Go to your doctor and see what he recommends. Mine said Weight Watchers and exercise, and here I sit on the computer.

Hi N.~ My husband and I have both been taking it for about 3 weeks. He has lost 4 lbs and so have I!!!

I am extremely sensative to herbal supplements that give you energy and it scared my husband when I brought this home, but I am taking 2 pills each morning with NO SIDE EFFECTS. Other than the fact that I am not as hungry and I am not craving sweets. No shakes, trembling or nervousness.

I bought a bottle of ACAI TRIM at Walmart for $9.89

Let us know if you try it and if it works for you, S.

Scams and good companies - we have plenty of both in this world!

I have some friends that work for a company that makes TaiSlim (juice drink) - I think it has the berries in it?? Anyway - the product, I believe, is trustworthy quality and the company trustworthy...and the product does work! I lost two pounds a week using it...and was eating a whole lot healthier because I didn't want to waste my money!!!! <grin> It is geared for weightloss, but has a bunch of healthy benefits. I was able to order it on line when I wanted it - www.kory.taislim.com in case you want to check out something that works.

It concentrates on mid drift fat and metabolism; one of my friends lost 12 pounds the first week (has a lot to loose) and his pants fell down one day when he was carrying a load of stuff. Hee.

I have and I didn't see any weightloss....I take the juice every morning and it actually gives me a boost of energy for the day. It doesn't have any added sugars...only natural from the fruit. I have also noticed that I used to get sick ALL the time, and I haven't been sick in the 7 months I've been taking it. Hope that helps! I highly recommend it (but not for weight loss)

N.,

Please be aware that there are a lot of Acai Berry scams on the internet right now. Make sure your friend reads the terms of agreement before she purchases anything online. I got what I thought was a free trial bottle of Acai Berry supplement and although they say it is a free 15 day trial they send you a 30 day supply. As soon as you get the bottle you have to immediately cancel your order or you're going to get charged $90 plus they automatically enroll you in some "Fit club" and that club bills you $29.99 per month so you're paying about $120 per month for something right off the bat that you're not sure will work because you haven't taken it long enough to see. Go to GNC and buy it. They will have Acai berry there and it doesn't cost near what it will cost your bank account by ordering it online. Acai Berry has a lot of benefits if taken properly. No pill will guarantee weight loss unless you are taking other steps in addition to taking it like, eating healthier and excercising. So take my advice and BEWARE of the online ACAI Berry Scams.
