Hoodia and Exercise

It is never a great idea to diet without exercising and the same goes for people who are taking hoodia as a supplement. Even though you are likely to be consuming less calories due to the appetite suppressant effects of hoodia you still need to keep your muscles in tip top shape. 

It is important to realize that you can’t just sit back and let hoodia do all of the work for you. After taking it a few days you could be minimizing your daily calorie intake by a thousand calories or more which could lead to flabby skin or untoned looking muscles or skin. Keeping active is crucial to keep yourself looking healthy and fit.

Another reason to exercise is that in some people the body is not triggered to lose fat unless the body is in motion. Most people on hoodia lose weight due to the calorie deprivation that naturally occurs as the appetite is lost but there are some individuals who simply will not lose weight if they are sedentary.  This is because in some cases the body simply will not lose fat unless it is triggered to do so by movement. 

Some bodies burn glucose in the blood first and never get around to burning fat unless absolutely necessary. The more you exercise the faster your body will run out of glucose and the more expediently it will start burning fat cells instead.

Exercising is also a good idea because it will keep your body toned, trim and fit over the long term. Furthermore people on hoodia feel slightly euphoric and like they have the stamina required exercising. They also feel less fatigued afterwards. This hearkens back to its original use as a food substitute for warriors from the Sans tribe in Africa who would use hoodoo to sustain themselves on long hunting trips.

Many people also end up binge eating after working out. Hoodia helps reduce these post workout type of cravings especially if you drink a lot of water with it.

Of course whether you are on a conscious weight loss program or not you should be exercising every day regardless. Aside from physically being beneficial exercise also helps you have a more positive attitude, improve self-confidence and boost self-esteem. Many people also experience a reduction of stress, especially if being on a limited calorie diet causes the stress.

Another reason that you need to exercise while taking hoodoo is that some people who take it experience such a drop in the need to take calories that the body “plateaus” after reaching a certain weight loss goal.  This is because your body may interpret the lack of consumption of calories as a “famine” situation and start to conserve weight.  Only exercise reduces this effect of calorie deprivation.

You can lose weight using any kind of diet or weight loss aid but the bottom line is that to keep it off you need to exercise as well. This will also help you keep it off for good.

What is Hoodia?

Hoodia comes from a plant scientifically known as Hoodia Gordonii. It is found in the arid deserts of South Africa and has been used for thousands of years by indigenous tribes as a miracle food that staves off hunger. Hoodia is also one of the lesser known and more contemporary appetite suppressants on the market.

Hoodia helps you lose weight in a safe and natural manner. It is not a drug of any kind and in most places it is classified as a food or food supplement. It is often referred to as the natural diet miracle because it cuts the appetite nearly in half in most individuals. Read More
