Weight Loss With Hoodia Gordonii was written by P. Mehta from fatfreekitchen.com

Hoodia gordonii is a natural succulent plant that looks like a cactus. It grows in the Kalahari Desert region of South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Angola. It is said that the bushmen used to eat hoodia gordonii stem to curb their hunger and thirst during their nomadic hunting trips. Hoodia gordonii is believed to contain the natural appetite suppressant property. Some studies have reported its hunger suppressant effect.

Why Hoodia gordonii supresses the hunger?

Hoodia gordonii contains steroidal glycosides that affects nerve cells in hypothalamus in the brain. The brain thinks that there is no need to eat any more as there is enough sugar in the blood and disables the hunger mechanism. The overall effect of this is to reduce the appetite.

An Example:

An average adult needs about 2200 calories per day. To burn 1 pound (2.2 kg) of body fat, you need to burn 3500 calories. This number of calories can be burnt by doing exercise or by consuming less calories (due to lower appetite) over a period of say 1 week. Then in one week you will lose 1 pound of body fat.
