I knew it. I knew that one day, I'd see the news headline: "Acai Berry Scam." Everyday I see commercials and advertisements for the amazing Acai berry. I believe everyone's grandparents told you at some point in your life, "If it's too good to be true, it is." But, apparently millions of people decided to disregard that and give millions of dollars to the multitude of companies selling these bottles of bullshit.
I'll be honest with you. I've tried some Acai drinks, and they weren't that bad. But at two servings per bottle and 45 grams of sugar per serving, I nearly went into a diabetic coma. It was cold, sweet, tart, and I had diarrhea for the rest of the day. There is no way someone could lose weight by drinking that stuff. As for the pills and supplements? Well, if you feel like spending $68 on a bottle of pills, go ahead and tell me how you feel.
This was the original news report.
