There was a woman’s magazine at the grocery checkout stand which featured “The juice that Melts Belly fat!” The article talks of drinking two glasses a day–to lose 9 lbs and 3″ in a week! It is blueberry juice.
There are two universities that experimented with blueberry juice on rats. The first researcher is Pierre S. Haddad, Ph.D. He did his research on rats at the University of Montreal. Allegedly he was using an enriched blueberry juice.
He was contacted via email. Pierre Haddad wrote “Please note however that our study found no benefit of regular blueberry juice on weight loss in obese mice. It is biotransformed juice (fermented with a special patented process with a specific bacteria) that we published impressive results on.”
An experiment was tried by University of Michigan’s E. Mitchell Seymour, Ph.D. He allegedly fed fat mice blueberry-packed diet. He was quoted “Blueberry was altering abdominal fat!” He also said, “There have also been signs that blueberry COMPOUNDS may even turn off our fat genes.”
An email to E. Mitchell Seymour, Ph.D. was sent asking if he had fermented the blueberry juice/diet with special patented process with specific bacteria. He did not reply
The article also recommended drinking the juice with a meal. There are recommended antioxidant-packed meals to go along with the diet.
