Imagine for a moment you belong to a hunting and gathering society, and you are miles and miles into a trek through the Kalahari of South Africa, which is a 362,500 square mile desert. You're on this expedition for days, and all have you to eat is a cactus-like plant called Hoodia. Your hunger and thirst is suppressed for hours, you're surged with vitality.
How does it keep you alive? Hoodia is extracted from a succulent plant and was first used by the indigenous people of South Africa on long hunts through the desert. In 1977, researchers isolated an ingredient in Hoodia with appetite suppressing properties. How Can Hoodia Help Me Lose Weight? When you eat a little bit of Hoodia it instantly shuts off your hunger for 6 hours. During those 6 hours, you won't crave anything.
You won't feel any side effects. The food still smells great and tastes the same, but you won't want to eat it! Hunger is simply a chemical message that causes you to feel hungry. Your body can, and does create the illusion of hunger even when you don't need calories. Your hypothalamus, part of the body's endocrine system, decides when you should feel hungry or full by sensing the rise of glucose in your blood. Normally, to get your hypothalamus to turn off the hunger switch, you have to eat. But your hypothalamus is slow, it takes around 20 minutes to figure out what you've eaten, and by that time, you've probably eaten another 800 calories.
So by the time your hunger signal finally gets turned off, you've overeaten. When do I take Hoodia? Hoodia should be taken 20 to 30 minutes before meals. Just before you feel hungry, Hoodia has already fed the hypothalamus with artificial glucose. What results can I expect from Hoodia? Experiments have shown that Hoodia reduces a person's caloric intake by as much as 1,000 calories per day. This may be equated to losing about 2 pounds per week. But unlike exercises and diets which tend to make you feel starved or deprived of food, Hoodia lets you lose weight even if you are just reading a book or watching a movie.
Authentic Hoodia works. Its capacity to help you lose weight has been documented in scientific studies and from thousands of success stories. It has been highlighted on major TV networks such as BBC, ABC and CBS. Even Oprah Winfrey has used it! Are you exercising as much as you want to? Getting impatient for the weight to go?
