Acai has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss. It’s a berry, high in antioxidants. You can get the same vitamins by eating blueberries or raspberries, or even drinking green tea or pomegranate juice. CNN has already done a story about how the weight loss claims are bogus

All of these internet ads are nothing but scams to charge up your credit card every month for with no way to cancel – google acai berry scam to see how many tens of thousands of people have reported being scammed

If you want to try for yourself, never fall for any free trial or buy online. You can get them at any health food/vitamin store.
