I see another real problem here, especially if people managed to get their hands on REAL hoodia:

she said she had no cravings and basically forgot about food even at regular mealtimes

Everyone with a little or a lot of weight to lose has said "wouldn't it be great to be anorexic...for a little while!" But it's NOT great. It's not a healthy way to lose weight. Not eating leads to muscle loss, fluid loss, eloctrolyte loss, BRAIN FUNCTION LOSS and if continued, DEATH. And it doesn't take that long. If somehow, people are actually obtaining real hoodia (which I very much doubt), unmonitored use is a really bad idea, no matter how much weight they have to lose.

Falling down is not failure....Failure is staying down.
Save the Earth, it's the only planet with chocolate and wine.

It isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.
