Acai Berry: As yet another supplement, that is not regulated by the fda, there is no good data supporting the effectiveness of acai berry. Again, may i recommend good old fashion healthy diet and increasing your activity level to a least a moderate activity level of 5-6 times per week of 30-45 minutes ore more of exercise to help you lose that weight and more importantly keep it off!
