Low calorie açaí bowl recipe
Overweight is not only an aesthetic problem, bu it affects to health in an alarming way. Miracle diets are clearly not the solution. There are also no foods or products that alone will achieve incredible results. However, it is possible to use some of them to lose weight. Do not miss how we will integrate our açaí into the diet to improve body composition, with a delicious low-calorie açai bowl recipe.
Before starting, it is necessary to take into account that the fact of gaining weight or losing weight does not only correspond to the result of subtracting the calories that are ingested from those that are spent. Other factors like metabolic flexibility or the composition of the gut microbiota are involved in weight loss.
How to use açaí in weight loss diets?
The açai alone will not make you thin, this is a fact. However, we can use it to modulate appetite and induce satiety, which will reduce the risk of eating unhealthy foods between meals.
Although some restrict the intake of fruit in the diet to lose weight, scientific literature does not support this position. We will teach you how to take advantage of açaí intake to lose weight.
To do this, we will prepare a low calorie açaí bowl recipe that presents in its composition, in addition to this fruit, a high fiber content. It is proven that fiber intake generates satiety. This is what a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition says. This objective can be achieved by introducing some whole grain, such as oats. In addition, the beta glucans in the food will improve the quality of the microbiota, which will have a positive impact on weight loss.
At the same time, we must ensure that the recipe contains omega-3 fatty acids, as these are able to contribute to reducing the abdominal perimeter, according to research published in the journal The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry. In addition, lipids are involved in many physiological reactions, also modulating inflammation. To provide a significant amount of omega 3 fatty acids just include a handful of nuts.
With the mentioned nutrients, together with the antioxidants of açaí, we will achieve reduce the sensation of appetite at the same time that we cause a beneficial impact on the microbiota and on the metabolic health. All with the advantage of being a recipe free of added sugars.

Your açaí bowl at the best time of the day
To maximize the benefits of açai, but reduce its possible disadvantages, it is essential to include the food at the right time of day for assimilation. The optimal is between noon and night. The natural sugars present in the fruit are not assimilated in a correct way if they are ingested outside the hours of sunlight, due to a series of complex hormonal processes studied by chrononutrition.
However, as a snack, or even as a dessert at lunch, it could exert the desired effect.
Remember that one of the bases of a healthy diet is to prioritize the consumption of fresh foods over ultraprocessed. The açai bowls contain hardly any ingredients that have been manipulated by the industry. Only açai goes through a technological process, although with the sole purpose of improving its conservation and allowing its consumption. It does not alter its nutritional value.
Pay attention to your diet
We taught you how to take advantage of açai to lose weight. However, you need to keep in mind that you have to pay attention to the rest of the diet to achieve such a goal. It is important to adjust energy intake to needs. While it is true that weighing food and counting calories can be a costly and frustrating task, it is enough to exercise daily and ensure a high volume of vegetables on dishes.
Don’t forget the protein. Ensuring the protein supply will contribute to improve muscle health, indispensable when maintaining active metabolism. Finally, keep in mind that reducing the amount of carbohydrates can be positive in order to obtain an adequate body composition. To do this, keep eating fruit and dairy, but try to reduce flour, sugars and rice. Instead use tubers and legumes.
