View Full Version : Goji berries and weight loss

Would goji berries have a stalling effect on weight loss? I've heard people mention that nuts and oils can. I love goji berries... I think I'm addicted :o but I'm also overweight so I'd like to lose some, however goji berries seem to stop me craving bad sugary things :)

I can't see why they would, but google it or search it on here, you should get plenty of info :) xxx
good timing...I just bought a package earlier this week. They are a bit higher in calories I think than your average berry...mine are dried and it says 100 calories per 1 ounce...so like a handfull. BUT I keep them at my desk and just take maybe a half handfull and chew them slowly one at a time. They really do help with the hunger (I'm in my first week and up till today had trouble going from breakfast to lunch without starving!).
so in moderation like how I use them, I bet they would help. Just treat them as a nut...no more than a handful at a time.

Thanks both for your replies :)
Yes, I think that is the key... moderation :o If I can be sensible with them they are a great hunger and cravings fighter :D
