hi, new to this site..i was read all of this forum on Hoodia..and one place it mentions that if we buy from UK and cross it over here in Canada or USA we dont need to pay custom? I ordered from Ebay Desert SUN and so far i dont really see much difference...been on them for over a week now...i also ordered Hoodoba and saw a  bit of difference in hunger..i just finished that bottle of Hoodoba 750mg took forever to get it in Canada plus i had to pay custom.. :( so it comes out very expensive...now i just ordered Desert BURN but in juice form..hopefully i get it soon...they say in juice form cuts hunger right away cause pill form you have to wait to desolve etc etc..harder to take pill form if your not always home or scheduled...i will let you guys know how that worked...i get a funny feeling desert sun is a scam cause the real one that was on 60 min. was desert BURN...but i would be curious if i buy from UK if it would cost me less in all this shipping and handling and custom...

cheers

Hi
Just been reading all the comments on Hoodia and never realised how much bad Hoodia there could be!!!
I bought my hoodia off a website called Dermaslim.  They were 700mg each capsule, Hoodia Max they are called.  They definitely make me feel full cause I could usually eat everything in the cupboards but now I may eat a sandwich and half way through I don't feel like eating any more cause I am feeling really stuffed.
Has anyone else tried the ones on the Dermaslim website it was buy two get one free!! £47.00 including P&P for the three (I think, around that anyway)
Going on holiday in three weeks and hope to drop a lot of weight so heres hoping.  I will report back with the results. fingers crossed X:)

Hi all,

I risked it other day thought that's it im going to get some! Ordered 3 bottles for £54 from hoodiashop.co.uk and they arrived today. My partner and I are both taking them we took 1 at 10.30 this morning and have just taken another one now, 1 hour before we have jacket tatie and salad.

Lets hope they work.

Keep us updated on your progress peeps.

hi graham, so what are you taking now? guess your from UK...dont worry i live in Canada and when my stuff comes from USA i get hit too with custom and taxes cause i live in Quebec..so we get doubled taxed plus custom...ex: 3 bottles of desert burn 750mg = 165$ canadian + custom, tax so all comes about to 200$ canadian...very expensive...

where in UK are you?

Hey, Ian...I've been taking Hoodoba brand hoodia & it is 750 mg.  It really works!  I feel full for about 3 hours after taking it.  Only problem is, it's pretty expensive!!!  About $52 per bottle of only 60 capsules.  And if you REALLY want to lose weight, you need to take 3 capsules per day.  That would mean the bottle would only last you 20 days, & that would run into a TON of money.  I'm not really using it to lose weight.  I'm just using it to cut back on cravings, & to stave off my hunger for longer periods of time.  I think if I took 3 capsules per day, I would notice a difference in my weight.  But I just can't remember to take it!  UGGGGGGGGG!  I got mine off of ebay from a very reliable seller...but can't remember the ebay i.d. of her right now...sorry!
Good Luck to you!

Joy

Hi Guy's, i'm new to here but started taking pure hoodia a couple of days ago.  Things seem to be ok & hopefully will continue and get better as they are meant to take around seven days to get into your system.  I got mine off of ebay (uk)seller is prime-visions they are based in Germany and delivery was exceptionally fast.  They have a lot of good feedback, with lots of people returning for more of their product.

I will post back in a few days to let you know how things are going.  Also got to say 'congrats' to Terri, you must be so pleased. :)

yes, in my opinion hoodia does work, but you need to make sure you do your homework and ask around about what works.. keep in mind though, not every brand works for everyone..

Hi everyone - I'm so happy to have found this forum - getting tired of all the websites that are like infomercials! :)  

I also bought my hoodia from Prime Visions on ebay (the german seller.)  They have really positive feedback from 2-time buyers and I even emailed a few of the buyers to get their real opinion on the hoodia - all which came back positive.

I started taking the hoodia a week ago today and noticed that my appetite seemed to lessen and I could just about make it from meal to meal without a snack.  I still get a bit of a hunger fit where I feel like I could raid the house but if I just have a sip of diet pepsi or something like a ritz cracker the hunger feeling quickly goes and I'm back on track.  

I've been taking the pills three times a day, 1/2 before each meal like the seller recommended.

However, this Wednesday I noticed some problems with breathing.  I don't have asthma so to speak but I do have an enhaler just in case I get wheezy due to summer allergies.  (I probably get a new one about one a year, each summer - that's how little I use it.)   Anyhow on Wednesday I noticed my breathing seemed a bit more tight.  I wasn't wheezy but it was like once I would breathe in everything would constrict and it would be hard to exhale again to breathe in again, etc.  I think I must have eventually paniced because it rapidly became worse but after using my inhaler I was okay again.  

Starting today I'm down to just two pills a day - one before breakfast and one before dinner at night.  This afternoon again my breathing got a bit tight.  I don't know whether it is the hoodia or just high pollen in the air or something.  

Has anyone else have any alleric reaction or side effects to report?

Thanks,

Kathryn

Hi there

I've just purchased my first lot Hoodia, after stumbling across it. The BBC's article on it got my curiousity going.  I ordered mine from **************** for 60 capsules, 1 months supply.  They arrived this morning & I will start taking them tomorrow.  The bottle says 100% Pure Hoodia direct from South Africa.  500mg of hoodia gordonii.  says to take 1 capsule 1hr before lunch and again 1hr before dinner with 8oz of water.  

I bought them to boost my weightloss.  For the past 3yrs i've done no exercise at all, due to a sciatica problem.  Luckily tho, i've been pain free since the beginning of this year and decided to get back to the gym etc.  I go 4 nights a week 2 hrs at a time & although my shape is changing and my clothes are getting looser, im not losing a lot of weight, but I am a lot hungrier.  So lets hope Hoodia is the answer for me.  I have 2 stones to shift, but if i can get a stone off for my holiday in 5 wks time i'll be chuffed to bits.

I'll post back on a regular basis to keep ya updated.  

Fingers crossed      (Please no advertising on the forum)
Carol ;)

Hi all

I purchased some Hoodia Gordonii plus from Ultra Herbal ******************* on a knee jerk reaction after watching GMTV do an article on a revolutionary diet pill soon to be available in the UK.

I have approx 4 stone to lose after a couple of motorbike crashes, one which parlaysed me for over a year. No exercise and many drugs and steroids later means that I have ballooned and although am up and about now, cannot excercise due to remaining damage to hips & scarred sciatic nerve.

The hospital put me on some diet drug beginning with a 'Z', but they just made me have very very bad runs. They stopped the body saturating fat, but had revolting side effects.

Anyway - I have 4 bottles of the above tables and would really appreciate any comments ontheir success or lack of.

My problem is that I never wait until I am hungry now to eat, I pig out because I am being greedy. That is what I hope to curb.

Anyway - best of luck to the rest of you trying too!
