Many of us have struggled with our weight at some point in our lives. We all know that it takes discipline to eat right and get enough exercise.  The problem is that knowing and actually doing are two different things.  There can be many reasons why it’s tough to get all the exercise we need and / or eat right, difficult but not impossible.  If you were looking for something that may be able to help you achieve your goals and were thinking of using a supplement, your next question would probably be: Hoodia does it work?

As with most things, everyone has their own opinion. If you ask 100 people you’d probably get about 100 different answers.  The fact is that most people will get some help with their weight loss efforts by using Hoodia, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to do anything, which is the mistake that many people make.  No matter how great a supplement is you will still need to get plenty of exercise and eat properly.

There are three main things that Hoodia can do to help you lose weight:

1. Hoodia has a compound that sends a signal to your brain telling it that you are full and don’t need any more food.  That trigger can help you eat far less without feeling like you are being deprived.  A recent study took a group of obese people, half who were given Hoodia and the other half were given a placebo, to monitor the effectiveness of the Hoodia supplement.  

The patients were told they could eat as much as they wanted and they weren’t exercising, just eating and relaxing.  After about 2 weeks the patients who were taking the Hoodia supplement were taking in an average of 1000 calories less per day and had lost weight compared to those who were only taking the placebo.

2.  The second benefit of Hoodia is that it has been reported to stop food cravings altogether.  Many people will say that any supplement that helps control hunger really won’t work for them since they eat because they are bored, feeling down, or something just looks good… in other words they eat even when they’re not hungry. If that describes you than you’ll be pleased to know that Hoodia can help lessen your desire to eat all the time and not just control your hunger.  Of course, this effect hasn’t happened to everyone so you would have to try Hoodia first to see if it will work for you too.

3.  If Hoodia can help you stop ‘binge eating’ or just grabbing the closest thing because you are either hungry or bored, than it will be easier for you to limit your food intake to just those things that are healthy.  That is the one component that can make a big difference in your weight loss goals.

If you want to lose weight you might as well get all the help you can to make permanent, healthy changes.  So if you’re asking : Hoodia does it work, the answer would be yes, for most people it works very well and it will very likely work for you too.

You should consult your personal health care provider, prior to taking any weight loss supplement.
