I have been using Hoodia Gordonii Succulent for Five years now to help suppress my appetite thereby maintaining my weight but does it work for everybody? The quick and easy answer is NO! So why would it work for one person but not for another? Well lets look at some other natural substances like caffeine, if I drink some coffee at night I'm pretty much up all night because of the caffeine in the coffee. But, my wife can drink a cup of coffee in bed and fall right to sleep. However, my best friend gets a migraine headache if he drinks more than a cup of coffee a day. The reason being is that most natural substances have three different effects on people. The first effect is that it does what it is supposed to do for about 1/3 of the people who use it. Second it does nothing at all for about 1/3 of the people and thirdly it can actually have a negative effect on about 1/3 of the people who use it. Anyone who has struggled to lose weight can tell you that diets alone don't always work!
How much water do you consume on a daily basis? The human body is made up of 75% water; our bodies cannot store water itself so you need to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Our bodies can survive without food for a number of weeks but only a couple of days without water. You cannot drink too much water as our body rids itself of the excess through urinating. The best indication to tell if you are drinking enough water is the colour of your urine, if there is any amount of colour in it then you seriously need to up your water intake. Water helps our bodies to flush out the toxins, which in turn helps our bodies with cell reproduction. The more water we drink the more our bodies will be able to purify itself. By drinking plenty of water you will notice dramatic changes in your skin tone and elasticity, a visible reduction in the cellulite on your body, if you have any and yes weight loss. Increasing your intake of water will help to naturally speed up your metabolism which is one of the main keys to weight loss.
10 reasons why many people fail at losing weight. 1) It wasn't your decision to lose weight - you were told by a family member, doctor or friend that you need to lose weight, so you rush out and buy the first weight loss product you can get your hands on. 2) As losing weight had never crossed your mind losing weight will always be something you can do tomorrow - Remember tomorrow never comes. You need to want to lose weight yourself for yourself for you to become successful. 3) You bought a weight loss book which is supposedly easy to follow, there are a number of foods that you can't get your hands on and this is a strict diet that you cannot deviate from. This limits you to only a few of the recipes suggested in the book. Shopping for food is now a pain in the neck. 4) The eating plan is boring, you are given 3 set meals each of which you have to eat every day. You sit and look at your plate of food and long for the foods you love - you then you go on an eating binge, you attack the pantry at warp speed and eat everything you are not supposed to eat in huge quantities.
This week, our Aussie friends conducted a study that found that about 60 percent of the men in the country were clinically overweight. Big deal, right? We Americans can beat that! But, the more surprising finding was that, of all those pot-belly men, only 36 percent perceived themselves as being overweight. Sure, that may be beneficial to their self-esteem, but it doesn't change the fact that they could be setting themselves up for more serious health complications by ignoring the keg resting on top of their six pack.

Then, there's always the BMI (body mass index), but that doesn't take into account your lean muscle mass, so it's less effective at separating the fatties from the fitties.

The age old question about dieting is how do you lose weight and still enjoy yourself.

I highly recommend the South Beach Diet because it helped me lose 45 pounds in a healthy manner over the course of six months. I was able to lose weight and also lose some of my medical problems so it is definitely is one of the good ways to lose weight but the snacks they recommend are really not the best. I am sorry chewing on celery is like chewing on wood.

Before I lost the weight my snack was a bowl of ice cream or chips or cookies and I knew they were out. Well I found a replacement for my unhealthy snacks - Nuts!
Hoodia Gordonii is a type of cactus that grows primarily in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa. The San Bushmen tribe have eaten the plant for years, using it to stave off hunger and thirst when away on long hunting trips. After its discovery, scientists spent years researching how to effectively isolate the compound P57, which is responsible for dramatic weight loss. Now Hoodia is available in pills, liquid Hoodia, patches and even chewing gum.

Hoodia has been featured on Oprah, CBS, NBC, 60 Minutes and many others, as a safe and effective way to lose weight. Real 100% Hoodia is not easy to come by. There are many imitation products out there, released by unscrupulous marketers looking to make a quick buck on the back of Hoodia's amazing success. Pure Hoodia is both rare and expensive, as it takes 5-7 years to mature enough to provide its appetite suppressant qualities.
