Acai Berry Diet and Weight Loss

The Acai berry diet is being touted as the miracle food that can cure everything ranging from cancer to cardiac problems and acne to arthritis. They have also been labeled as being the super food for weight loss. While acai berries are really rich sources of a number of essential compounds that can greatly improve overall health, till date there has been no scientific study or research that has actually proven that you can lose weight simply by eating acai berries.

However, at the same time, you should not forget that acai berries are one of the richest known sources of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids, flavonoids and phytosterols-- compounds that actually help in boosting metabolism, burning fat faster and absorbing lesser fat from food. Combined with the right diet and lifestyle, acai berries can actually help people lose weight.

Let us have a look at how acai berries aid weight loss:

An Acai Berry Diet Boosts Metabolism: Acai berries are very rich in essential fatty acids:omega 6 and omega 9. These fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the human body, but are necessary for the body to function properly, which is why they have been prefixed with the title essential. Sources of essential fatty acids are flax seeds, fish oil, olive oil and most nuts, but acai berries are richer in these than almost all other sources. Essential fatty acids are the key to boosting metabolism, and if you have been gaining weight because of a slow metabolism, then you might just start shedding it naturally by adding berries to your diet.

An Acai Berry Diet Inhibits Fat Absorption: Acai berry contains phytosterols, which are phytochemicals that have been proven to reduce cholesterol absorption in the intestines. These physterols have been proven to reduce cholesterol and fat absorption by 15%, which means that at least this much fat is passed out of your body instead of being absorbed by it every time you eat.

Acai Berries Increase Stamina And Energy: Acai berries are rich in antioxidants which boost metabolism and greatly increase stamina and energy in human beings. With more energy and the stamina to continue and finish off your fat busting workouts (that you otherwise abandon midway), you will naturally lose weight faster.

Acai Berries Help Muscles Grow: Amino acids in acai berries help in improving muscle tone and muscle growth. With better and healthier muscles and increased muscle mass, you will burn off more calories and lose weight faster.

Acai Berries Suppress Hunger Pangs and Cravings: Acai berries are rich sources of fiber, and if you consume them in pulp form, then the berries will naturally help suppress hunger cravings and prevent unnecessary snacking and bingeing. The result would be a slimmer and a healthier you.
