Has anyone tried the Acai Berry/Colon Cleanse diet?

Posted by admin on Thursday 18 June 2009

I desperately need to drop the 50 lbs I have packed on in the past few years of nursing school. Graduation is in one week, and then my wedding is on 9/9/09. I need a good jumpstart to motivate my weight loss attempt and get my energy level up. Heard these were good, but you never can believe the reviews about diet products. Anyone have any personal experience they can share? Good or bad idea? Any tips? THANKS! :o)

From what I've read in interviews with trained nutritionists, cleanses don't work. All they are capable of is helping you lose water weight, which will quickly come back after you go off of it.

I might give something like Alli a try though. I haven't heard any reviews, but perhaps it will work.

I'm sorry I'm not much more of a help, but I tried a soup diet, hoping to lose only five to ten pounds, and found myself nearly passing out the third day. Try to eat more leafy greens, fruits, veggies, and lean protein like chicken or fish. Switch to water instead of soda. Even if the cleanse does work, I doubt you would drop 50 pounds. Don't buy into the hype and do it right.

    Its a colon cleanse…you just poop a lot….

    No way in hell you're going to drop 50lbs in a week, if you do, send me an email at wellitusedtobe[at]gmail.com so I can teach others how to do that. Now, it is possible to drop 50lbs by 9/9/09 (what a lovely date LOL). Just eat 6 small meals a day, and avoid carbs. Old fashion diet and exercise solves just about everything.References :
