By Eric James

What is the Hoodia Diet?

So you are looking into trying a new trendy diet? I mean there are tons of them out there to chose from, right? There aren't many that haven't been tried. Well this one you may not have even heard of. How does cactus sound for a diet? This new product called Hoodia is appetite suppressant.

They say that it is not the tastiest of choices. It looks like a cucumber and grows in dry heat. They also say that it can take as much as five to seven years before it can truly develop. This plant actually grows in Africa in the Kalahari desert. Also it grows in Botswana, Namibia and Angola.

In ancient days they would peel the plant and eat it to curb your appetite. There are about twenty different kinds of Hoodia Gordonii plants. Significantly enough there is a small molecule that actually makes this seemingly legit. With all of the diets going on, who knows? You always must be skeptical when trying these diets. They are always so wishy washy and are good about making you feel like you are really going to lose the weight.

It is found in a diet pill called Trimspa and can come in the form of a capsule, powder, liquid and even tea. Pfizer bought it in 1998 for 21 million. If you are willing to give it a go, you may or may not get results that you want.

Weigh all of the pro's and con's about it. How much does it cost? Are there others who have tried it and gained results by it? Look for testimonies and the results of others. You have a right to be skeptical. There is a lot of hoopla going on about these diets and you could very well be wasting not only your time but your money as well.

Sometimes going natural is the best thing to do. Do you want to suppress hunger? There are all sorts of pills and potions out there that will suppress your hunger. That should give you something to ponder. I mean they say don't knock it until you try it. I say be skeptical. It's your health and your money!

This is not to say that Hoodia will not work. Far from that, many people around the world have used Hoodia to help appetite suppression and lost weight. The key to all this however is to realise that a good exercise and diet plan in also a big part of the puzzle. Most people hate calorie counting as it can get very cumbersome and as a result give in to their hunger.

If you decide to take Hoodia, you should consult your doctor, just like if you started any other medication. There are no studies to show that Hoodia has side effects but you can never take too many precautions. It is also important to point out that pregnant women should not take Hoodia.
