Reporter Julia Miller at News 6 took it upon herself to try the “Acai Optimum” and “Advanced Colon Diet” for 4 weeks (This sounds surprisingly similar to The Princess Project right here on FIT!). After 4 weeks, she lost 25 pounds with no special diet, and no intense exercise! Sounds like the mighty Acai just got mightier!!
This amazing “news report,” impressed us until we read the fine print:
“…THIS WEBSITE IS ONLY ILLUSTRATIVE OF WHAT MIGHT BE ACHIEVABLE FROM USING THIS/THESE PRODUCTS, AND THAT THE STORY/COMMENTS DEPICTED ABOVE IS NOT TO BE TAKEN LITERALLY.”
We quickly realized that we were looking at an advertisement for a fasting/cleansing type set of products, and NOT a real news story. Bummer dude…
I’ll refer to my own personal “Homeostasis Food Plan”, which you’ll be reading more about very soon, for an explanation of why cleanses, colonics and detoxes are pseudo medicine and not recommended by western doctors:
The “Homeostasis Food Plan”
“Science disagrees with the common assumption that our bodies progressively accumulate dangerous levels of toxins.
A proclivity to storing away waste material would be quickly self-destructive to any organism. Indeed, there are medical conditions that prevent the body from clearing toxins. In most people, the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin do their jobs quite well.
Nonetheless, there may be a “steady state” of free-circulating toxins that, although only briefly permitted to affect the body, do so, indeed.
You can use alcohol as an example. It is consumed, metabolized, then excreted as waste. The body is now clear of the toxin (alcohol) but there was a finite window of opportunity for numerous effects on metabolic processes, cognition, coordination, perception, et cetera. Other harmful substances, such as sugar, trans-fatty acids, pollution and stress hormones follow a similar life cycle, and exert themselves potently within the human body.
We should like to see how the body functions when not affected by these “toxic” substances.”
The”Homeostasis Food Plan,” can assist with naturally restoring balance to:
* -immune function (better health)
* -skin (look better)
* -cognitive function (think better)
* -emotional health (feel better)
* -sensory and motor function (better athlete)
* -bone, muscle, connective tissue health (less pain, better performance)

In reality, there’s no one quick fix that will work to restore balance to your body and help you lose weight. The best that you can do is to follow what up-to-date science has to say with regard to physical fitness and proper nutrition. The “Homeostasis Food Plan,” is a smart step in finding balance through clean nutrition habits.
