BACKGROUNDBACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

We've all been inundated with emails and stories hyping Hoodia. This native South African plant belongs to the cactus family and has most recently been praised for its contribution to weight loss. The Cactus Diet is not as much a reliable plan for losing weight as it is a snack. It is suggested that Hoodia reduces feelings of hunger, helping individuals to eat less.

South African native San Bushmen have been relying on Hoodia for centuries, using it as sustenance for extended travel without availability of other food sources.

Hoodia was examined to learn how it mimics an appetite suppressant. They found a new molecule, since named P57. One researcher summed up the findings by explaining that when gluclose sugar is recognized by nerves in the brain, it causes a spike in blood sugar and signals your body that it is full. The P57 in Hoodia reacts 10,000 times more than glucose, sending essentially a very loud signal that you're full, leaving you without any desire to eat.

Really really really bad review, no offence. Did not tell anything about the cactus diet.

A diet doesn't need to give exercise information. The US government already does. Used to be 30 minutes 3 times a week, now the official recommendation is 1 hour per day. This is just common sense â?? depending on your health conditions and level of fitness you squeeze in as much activity as you can. Do you really need a diet program to tell you that?

It seems as if it does makes one feels less hungry w/o the added jitters.

I agree with Callie, this diet doesn't supply enough information to be a well-rounded plan. Where is the information on exercising, how much should it be when taking this supplement?

This is just a supplement. Which si fine, but i'd like some info for meals and exercise to go with it.

So if I'm just eating healthier then the hooda will make me less hungry? That would keep me from snacking.
