I think it is true that both blueberies and the tart cherries are good for you and I have been taking the tart cherry juice and find it to be of some hielp. I have actually cut down on the asap and the hydrodone. I have yet to loose the weight but then again I am a surgar addict and can't live without my Jelly Belly. But I have cut way way down on those as well. I think that the natural fruitcose that is in the cherry juice curbs that craving. There is a major problem with blueberries for me. I can only take them for so long and then I can not swollow them for a while. It does not trigger a gag reflex but I litterally unable to swallow them. It is the same with pork if I eat too much pork chops and pork sausage it gets to where I can not swallow the pork. Now I am not sure about the gin and grapes but there is truth to what they say about being full of Vim and Vinegar. It seams that if you take a cople of tbsp of vinegar a day it will increase your metabolic rate. The only thing is no one is really sure what the Vim is. Do and take what makes you feel good.
