Hoodia As A Part of Your Diet
You can incorporate Hoodia into a healthy diet in order to help you to suppress your appetite. Many people have found success with Hoodia, as an appetite suppressant and thus as a weight loss method. However, many people have not had very good results, as well. It seems that Hoodia does not suppress appetite when you are working hard (physically), and many pills are too weak to work for the full day they are said to work for. If you are using a pill form, check the other ingredients in the pill. Do not use a pill that contains epinephrine, which is a dangerous stimulant.
You may be best off using Hoodia at certain times of the day when you know you start craving unnecessary food, such as before bed. Most of the diet pills recommend that you eat a healthy diet, including a low amount of carbs or fat and a decent amount of protein and dairy, as well as 6-8 glasses of water per day, and possible more depending on your size. Be careful not to mix Hoodia with other nutritional supplements which are appetite suppressants, as you may end up forgetting to eat. Also, even with Hoodia helping you to eat less, you should still perform some exercise. A half hour walk every day or every second day is an easy way to get some light exercise and keep you metabolism boosted.
In any diet, you should be eating at least 2000 calories per day. Do not forget that you need to eat in order to stay healthy, and while losing weight can improve some people’s health, losing weight too fast can be detrimental to your health. Losing 1 pound per day may be too much for some people, and you should talk to your doctor or nutritionist to determine the best way for you to lose weight and a safe rate at which to lose weight.
Once you have determined that you would like to take Hoodia, and chosen your pills, you need to set a schedule for when you will take the pills and when you will eat. If you have chosen an effective pill, it will suppress your appetite and you may not wish to eat as much or at all. Some might decide that the fastest way to lose weight is to not eat at all for a couple of days, but that will lower your metabolism, making future weight gain more likely. Instead, develop a menu of foods that are low in saturated fats, low in calories, and tasty enough to appeal to you even if you are not very hungry.
Hoodia does not replace food. You will not eat enough of it to get any nutritional value from it, instead it will make it easier for you to control your eating and eliminate food cravings, and thus, it can be a part of a healthy diet.
You might also find success with other appetite suppressants, which would have the advantage of more research having been done on them, although they may not work so thoroughly.
