Acai: Weight Loss Wonder Fruit?

Acai-Bowls-Quick-Bliss-6

Is Acai beneficial for weight loss? A growing body of research says yes, when it’s part of a sensible nutritional diet, along with some regular exercise.

 

As you know, here at Quick Bliss, we love Acai!

 

It’s a versatile berry with an unusual flavour that can be paired with many other different flavours and textures to make delicious Acai fruit bowls and cups.

 

It can be added to salads, too … It’s high in fibre and antioxidants, which are great for overall health and well-being. Acai berries also contain vitamins, minerals, unsaturated fats such as Omega 3, 6, and 9, and many other essential compounds.

 

Does Acai help with weight loss?

In recent years, there has been a lot of attention on Acai as a miracle weight loss food! And while these claims need to be tempered with common sense, some facts about Acai berries support that this could be the case.

 

Acai berries have appetite suppression qualities, which makes you feel less hungry. Because Acai berries are also high in fibre, they make you feel ‘full’ for longer, and the fibre helps the body’s digestive system to work more effectively.

 

Other recent studies have suggested that these two factors are further supported by the essential fatty acids within Acai berries, which work to help improve metabolism. All of this sounds pretty good, right?

 

Well, we say everything in moderation – and we can undoubtedly say that regular doses of Acai berries will significantly improve your health and well-being! But we’re also going to add something else here just as ‘food for thought’. Acai cups are straightforward to make (whether you choose one from our menu or DIY at home) – and the options are endless, so they never get boring. Not only are they delicious, they’re super quick to throw together too, so they’re an excellent choice if you’re hungry but want a healthy option. And, if you start the day with one, it’s more than likely that you’ll set yourself up to make better food choices throughout the day, which, as we all know, is crucial if you’re trying to lose weight or make other changes.

 

What is it all those life coaching gurus say? Our choices create habits, and when we have healthy habits, we have a solid foundation for a healthy life! Or something to that effect.
