Seems like everywhere you look on the Internet these days there’s another company promoting the nutritious Acai Berry as a weight loss miracle. I have had several people ask my opinion on the subject. First, I KNOW you know better than to believe you’re going to pop some pills – ANY pills – and have the pounds and inches melt off like magic. If you’ve been listening to me for any length of time you know true fat loss comes from a variety of factors, including exercise, recovery and proper nutrition. Notice “magic pills” ain’t one of them.

Second, any fitness expert with any sense will tell you that any diet that promotes you eat any one food all day long ( like cookies) and then eat a “sensible dinner” is stupid. Yes, you will lose some weight short-term, but as soon as you go back to your old eating habits – and you know you will – you know exactly what happens.

In it’s defense, the Acai Berry can be useful because it contains EXTREMELY powerful antioxidants and it is getting a lot of good press for that very reason. Antioxidants are extraordinary nutrients that help fight the free radicals associated with aging, cancer risk and other degenerative diseases.

And while on the subject, I wanted to fill you in on something that has recently been brought to my attention. Did you know that the coffee berry (the berry that covers the coffee bean) is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet? It’s something researchers have discovered in recent years.

What’s really cool is my friends at Prograde Nutrition have just created an amazing Whole Foods based Anti-Aging formula called Prograde Longevity that includes both Acai Berry and Coffee Berry. Oh, and it also utilizes Green Tea, Pomegranate, Wolf Berry and Biovin Grape (Red Wine extract.)Just to give you an idea of how powerful this formula is, well, you’d have to eat an entire POUND of raspberries to get the same ORAC value. ( ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)

The best part is their having a Thanksgiving Week sale to celebrate the launch of Prograde Longevity. From now until Friday you can get 11% off Longevity or any of their other exclusive products they offer.You can check out Prograde Longevity for yourself here.
