I've been drinking a hoodia tea the last couple days. Not sure either
Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God

There has been a lot of discussion on this in the past but basically no commercial products use 'hoodia'. Generally they are fiber supplements that advertise themselves as having hoodia and they may even have a form of a different (non-appetitite suppressing hoodia) but they don't contain the hoodia plant that has been used to suppress appetites by chewing them. So there is no real standardization on what 'hoodia' will mean from one product to the next. It is mostly an advertising label.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.

I loooove Hoodia capsules. I would never take the "recommended" dosage on supplements because it's just too many. But 1 or 2 a day I've noticed to decrease appetite. Now, whether that's a placebo effect or not is a different story. I like them, though. No negative side effects here, but everyone is different!

I knew a girl who used the hoodia lollipops a long time ago (I know, you can already tell this 'review' is going to be soo helpful, right?).

She DID lose weight while she was using them, but to be honest I think it was just the fact she was eating regular meals (2 - 3 a day), and then not snacking on anything else but the lollipops. And she was counting calories, so obviously that's going to help, lol. Either way, she was eating less overall.

I think I remember a a 20/20 special saying something like hoodia is so hard to get that it is highly unlikely the pills u r taking have any in them. But who knows maybe they have something else in them that may help.
