The Safe Use of Hoodia

Like any type of weight loss aid or supplement the way to safely use Hoodia is to use it in moderation. It is hard to hurt yourself in any way taking hoodia but it can lead to extreme weight loss if you take it daily for a number of months. The key is to respect your own body’s need for nutrition especially if you are one of those people who finds themselves losing as much as a pound a day on Hoodia. Although your body will eventually hit a plateau where it will not allow you to lose any more fat or tissue it is not a good idea to lose too much weight in too short of a time using this very effective and fast acting weight loss supplement.

For most part hoodia can be taken in large amounts. This is because it is not classified as a drug. In most areas it is called a food. It has been taken in Africa for centuries to stave off hunger. Still studies done in Africa show that if you eat nothing but hoodia for three months you will eventually starve to death. This is not just due to calorie deprivation it also has to do with being deprived of different vitamins and nutrients found in foods. The key to staying healthy while on hoodia and in fact on any type of diet regimen is to eat a variety of foods. Hoodia is a food but it is not considered to be a “whole” food like wheat grass. It’s value instead is to do with weight loss.

The biggest hazard of taking Hoodia is losing too much weight too rapidly. You can lose ten pounds a week if you are the type of person who takes Hoodia and completely loses all appetite. However this type of rapid weight loss is very hard on the brain, muscles, nerves and heart. If you start taking hoodia and you notice a rapid weight loss or you notice that you have not eaten in days then be sure to reduce your dose. Hoodia has a different effect on different people. With some individuals it takes as long as two weeks to work and with others the appetite suppressing effect seems to happen immediately.

Another reason that it may be wise not to lose too much weight at once is because doctors and fitness experts do say that losing more than two pounds a week is not likely to result in permanent weight loss. To keep it off you need to pace yourself and get your body gradually used to the fact that it will be assuming less calories.

Another challenge for people who are hoodia is drinking enough water a day. Some people find this difficult to master because hoodia also has the remarkable property of cutting your thirst. Drinking the eight glasses of water a day that doctors recommend seems difficult enough but it is even more of a challenge for people on Hoodia. This is something to keep in mind while you are on hoodia as it is quite possible that you will simply forget to drink enough water and as a result suffer from dehydration.
