Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. Today's question was sent in via myspace in and it was regarding acai berry supplements.
I'm starting my Fat X project on Monday. I've watched the workout videos,downloaded the FX workout guide and have done my grocery shopping so I can stick to the Fat X diet. I'm wondering if it's OK or even worth it to take an acai berry supplement. I've seen acai berry advertised and it's supposed to help weight loss. What do you think about it?
When it comes to supplementing your diet, I believe in a hierarchy that puts proven and time tested supplements at the top. The first of those is a protein supplement, then a multi mineral vitamin, followed by fish oils and if you want a proven metabolism booster, green tea in some form. Acai berry is a good anti-oxidant, but it has not been proven as a fat loss or fitness aid so I would skip it for now on stick to what has been proven and time tested.
If you've made up your mind and are planning on buying an acai berry supplement, take a look at my post Acai Berry Truth, a video by the Better Business Bureau is there.
