It is unsafe for everybody, but especially unsafe for children and growing teens. At your age, you should be focused on eating healthy in order to get the nutrients you need for your growing body, as well as exercising so that your body will be strong and fit.

Its safe because you will still be eating and receiving nutrients but only if you go about it properly, and its for a short time. You cant just all of a sudden one day stop and switch your diet up you have to slowly work Your body down, for 2-3 days cut back your intake of meat and don't have any caffeine, then 2-3 days only veggies and such, then 1-2 days only dried nuts or w/e and liquids then 1-2 days plain liquids and then do the process backwards until you are back to your normal diet. Its important to do this or your body will respond the wrong way and it could be very bad. (always be sure you are intakeing enough energy and don't exert yourself during the minimum food days because that's dangerous). Some people go through this process for four weeks but you are young and it is very dangerous to have your body do this for longer than maybe 2 weeks-ish.

If you want to go on a cleanse the best thing to do is only drink water or cranberry juice, cranberries are good for cleansing. Try eating blue berries to boost you immune system as you do not know how it will react to one. And also make sure you're using supplements to get what fruits cannot give you such as proteins and omega oils. Canned tuna fish is great low cal way to get these. Hoped this helped and Good Luck.

This whole acai berry thing is a scam like all other weight loss supplements. Acai berries are high in antioxidants. A diet high in antioxidant foods can help increase your metabolism. An increase in metabolism can burn more calories. More calories burned can result in weight loss. Acai berries cause weight loss! That is the "stretch" these con artists are selling. Acai berries don't have any more antioxidants in them than blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. At 10 times the price because they are "exotic". Small red beans are the top antioxidant food. But they are boring, a low price commodity, and not sexy. The cleanse pills that come with acai extracts usually contain nothing more than psyllium husk powder to help you poop more. The result being - quick weight loss. But only of the waste. There is no such thing as a fat burner. Burning more calories than you consume is the only fat burner. None of these weight loss supplements guarantee anything unless you establish a healthy diet and exercise program. So why not just establish a healthy diet and exercise program and keep your money? The same stretch of the imagination marketing applies to garcinia cambogia, green tea capsules, maquiberry, hoodia, moyoberry, green coffee, gojiberry, fruta planta, hoodia, raspberry ketones, and african mango seed extract pills. See a pattern here? Magic exotic plants or extracts. Spending the same $2 to $10 a day on this junk would pay for a great gym membership. The only weight loss supplement I recommend is a basic multivitamin. A healthy complete life diet high in fiber and moderate exercise is the only safe way there is. See the story below about how the scam artists have to sell this stuff. If it worked, why would you need to use questionable marketing techniques?
