Does Hoodia Work for Appetite Suppression?


#1

I am getting back into lifting and trying to cut my calories and drop fat. The thing is I need a good appetite suppressant. The thing is due to some medical issues I can't take phentermine or ephedra.

Has anyone had any luck with Hoodia?

Good advice.

Don't cut back on your eating too much -- make sure you're taking in enough protein to recover.

High protein/low carb/moderate fat diets are generally very effective. Try cutting your carbs in half to start, if you don't have a food log I'd highly recommend it! Puts a whole new perspective on leading a healthy lifestyle.

Cottage cheese and a small handful of nuts is a great snack.

Just my two cents.
