Can Hoodia Become America's Version Of the "French Paradox"?

By: Patricia Zelkovsky

Over the past year or two there has been diet backlash in America. We're finding that "diets" don't work. Just the sound of the word diet, sends some into sheer terror. It conjures up thoughts of tasteless lettuce and constant hunger pangs.
Here we are tracking and counting carbs, fat and calories, meanwhile those in Europe continue to eat creamy sauces, buttery laced breads and rich desserts and still stay slim and trim. This fact has actually been given a term, itís called the French Paradox!

Why is it that Europeans can eat such wonderful foods, not gain weight, yet we Americans have to live on rabbit food to stay slim?

Is there a difference in our genes?

No, there is a difference in the QUANTITY of the foods eaten. You see while Americans super size everything, our European counterpart eat smartly with smaller portions, so they can basically what ever they like. What may also surprise you is the fact that we not only have larger food portions, but even our bottles of soda are twice the size of those sold in France and England.
Did you know that a standard American muffin is 2 and 1/2 times the size of a muffin in France? Youíre talking the difference of an extra 600 to 725 calories just at breakfast, and how many people do you know that have a muffin just as a quick snack?
Did you also know that American women consume almost 1,500 calories more per day than a woman living in Paris? Then to that add the frightening statistic that 40% of our calories come from fat and sugar, and then you no longer have to wonder why we are getting so fat and unhealthy.

Yet, because we are so spoiled by eating such large quantities of food, we feel as though we are starving if we drastically cut back to lose weight.

Enter Hoodia. Hoodia is a natural product that can help you eat less without being hungry. There are no stimulants in Hoodia, no known side effects, and has worked for 1000's of years for the San People of South Africa. Hoodia contains a molecule called P57 that is similar to glucose, yet is 1000,000 times stronger. This wonder molecule tricks the brain into believing that the stomach is full and satisfied.

In tests taken, those taking 3 grams (3,000 mgs) of Hoodia daily eat approximately 1,000 to 1,500 calories less per day but are totally satisfied without any hunger. And unlike previous weight loss products, Hoodia does not cause any jitters, Hoodia does not keep you up at night and can be taken right before bed time. Can Hoodia train us to eat less like out European counter parts?

I personally use Hoodia and have been blown away by my results. I eat what ever I like, when ever I like, yet I continue to lose weight. WHY? Now I am naturally eating less food. I am not hungry, and if I do have a craving for chocolate, I am satisfied with a small piece. I no longer feel the need to eat the complete chocolate bar.
By not feeling hungry, I have found that I choose my foods more carefully, relying on fresh fruit, lean meats and vegetables.

If you feel deprived by eating smaller portions of food when dieting or compelled to snack all day long because you are hungry, then Hoodia could be exactly what you are looking for.
Hoodia usually starts working the first day, but may take up to a week for some, before starting to feel its full benefits.
Although Hoodia is considered a food in Africa and in many other countries, in the US, a disclaimer stating that statements regarding Hoodia have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug administration and that Hoodia product web sites are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, is always shown on the product page. You will also see a suggestion to consult your physician before beginning any new diet or using any diet product.

Can Hoodia be called the American Paradox?
Only time will tell, but I do know that Hoodia works for me!
