Yes, I know-we all need to be skeptical of all of the diet aids out there, and before I get a lecture, I'm fully aware of all of the scams. I'm just curious and looking for info....
Has anyone tried this stuff? I just saw a commercial for it, and the web address is The commercial and site purport up to 5 pounds a week lost, which is pretty outrageous, but the thing that got my attention was they stated that in "their study", 100% of the participants lost weight, and that 50% of those people also gained muscle mass.

Setting the idea of whether Hoodia is effective and safe aside (which is a BIG step for me) there is only one company currently licensed by the research company that found this plant in Africa to distribute it.

The biggest problem is the fact that other companies are not regulated and can say anything they want. Slim coffee says it has hoodia, I would bet it does not, unless it is counterfeit and in a very minute amount.

I would agree this is a pretty far stretch. And yes the "fact" (supposedly) that it contains hoodia would be all I needed to hear to know to avoid it. What kind of "magic" will they think up next to earn a buck?

Thanks for the great links, Karen!
