Healthtap Doctors: are asked not to endorse specific brands or product lines. The best approach to weight loss is physical activity and good food/ portion choices. Some of the colon cleanses can be risky for your health. Natural, fresh organic juicing with protein powder & appropriate supplementation can be beneficial - but you need to be knowledgeable about it before hand.

It's only effective: at making your wallet or purse lose weight, not your body. It's a worthless scam. Don't believe anything recommended by Dr. Oz, even when he's testifying before a congressional committee. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. By the way, your colon cleans itself every day - that's what toilets are for.

Diet & exercise: Diet and exercise are the safest and most effective ways to lose weight (we have all heard it before, because it's true!). Although there are some nutritional benefits to acai and green tea, they should not be considered as a major part of your weight loss plan.
