Hoodia Appetite Control Nasal Sprays What are They?

Here's an article from my good friend Bill Barton over at Squidoo. Bill really knows his stuff so if you want to know more go to:

or his latest offerings,

, which are used on the tongue, ,, . A large debate ensues, as the various ways to apply hoodia flood the market, what we need to know is do the various methods actually deliver any greater benefits.

If you want to read more on the differences between various products application go to:

The new kid on the block is the markets latest arrival, , from . Whilst, this product is still in second stage development for use in humans, and is likely to be a prescription only drug, it is still causing quite a stir in the hoodia market. So, whilst we wait to see if it makes it to market, or not, we are stuck with the hoodia products available. Hoodia is seen to offer fantastic benefits to people seriously wanting to lose weight. However, they struggle with the need to supress their appetites. The old adage for many overweight people, "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak", holds true. Sadly, whatever supplement you take you will still need to exercise your body, and self control. And, so a drug that actually suppresses appetite would be of benefit to all types of people, from diabetics to catwalk models. PYY3-36 appetite control nasal spray it seems will offer a direct burst of hoodia into the , thereby providing a rapid and effective . So while we wait, what do the various alternatives give us as users of ? Firstly, it is clear that all hoodia products are not created equal. Pills are full of bulking agents, which means you pay for the padding on the pill! Patches are reportedly, slow on delivery of the hoodia, therefore, they are slowly absorbed into your blood stream. In effect, the craving may increase before it is suppressed. Lastly, the purity of the hoodia is questionable, a recent survey suggests that 70% of all hoodia products sold are not genuine, nor are they guaranteed pure. So, whichever method you use you need to assure yourself that you are getting exactly what you paid for. Not bulking agents, impure hoodia and an ineffective delivery system. for me is still by far the best method.

Weight Loss Products

"What You Should Know About "

There are a lot of weight loss products that offer results; however, are these really guaranteed? Could these products live up to their claims to a slimmer body?

In the USA, there is an estimated 50 million people trying to at anyone time, however, only 5 per cent are ever successful.

One thing's for sure, weight loss and and programs have more than their fair share of fraudulent claims and practitioners.

Samples of weight loss products on the market today:

· – these were already removed in 1990’s by FDA having proven themselves to be utterly ineffective.

· Magnetic Diet Pills – allegedly flushing out fat, but not.
· Guar Gum – gums can cause internal obstructions.

· Electrical Muscle Stimulators – no proven effect.

· Eyeglasses that Suppress Appetite – These claims that the projected

image on the retina decreases appetite. No proven data has been provided

for these suckers.

· – through acupuncture, suppresses appetite.

There are also other examples of weight loss products:

that are mixed with beverages or food and used as a replacement meal. A downside of this is that once a person stopped taking the drinks, they usually regain the lost
weight after a short period of time due to feeling of emptiness in the stomach.

Another is diet supplements and medicines that also don’t work long-term, such as, an over-the-counter pills that may raise blood pressure and cause palpitations.

, on the other hand can cause serious side effects such as heart problems, seizure, stroke, and even death. One surefire way to lose weight - most definitely not recommended.

Tom Venuto's Burn the Fat Site

The list below is a short resume of some of the products available today.

§ Herbalife Nutritional Program – good as a meal spplement, dieters may rely

on shakes and follow artificial dieting methods, this in the long term increases weight gain.

work into their lives.

§ Mega-Thin 100 Formula – Its formula contains an anti-fat weapon,

however, diet is not emphasized that’s why it’s categorised as an

appetite suppressant.

§ NestlĂ©’s Sweet Success – recommended up to three times a day and it

does not promote healthy eating habits. Weight loss is difficult to

maintain once intake is stopped.

§ Ultra Slim Fast – this plan requires regular exercise but does not

teach good eating habits.

§ Diet pills with Ephedra and PPA – many of these have enclosed diet

plans. Slimming can come from the diet plan and not the pill intake and

there are risks of adverse side effects.

§ Chitosan products – contains fibers which were taken from shellfish

that may cause diahorrea and bloatedness.

§ Chromium Supplements –claim that products will lower blood sugar,

body fat and cholesterol but causes anaemia and even memory loss. Studies

show only minimal or no beneficial effect at all.

§ – known for their strong anti-oxidants effects that have been medically proven to help lower cholesterol and triglycerides, and promote weight loss, however,
the caffeine content may cause insomnia and restlessness.

§ Algae Tablets - Spirulina contains significant nutrients that can

be an acceptable food supplement when used as part of a varied diet but are very

expensive. Why bother, save yourself the money and but healthier foods.

§ St. John's Wort Supplement - it is claimed that it will suppress appetite

and promote weight loss, but it may lead to gastrointestinal discomfort,tiredness,

sleeplessness, and arouse allergic reactions.

§ Glucomannan Products – claimants for this say that two capsules before each meal

decreases food absorption. Known more usually as a food thickeners but not yet

proven safe or effective. Weight loss will only happen if good diet plan is

followed. Do you really fancy being the slimming industries laboratory mouse on

unproven product testing on humans?

Even if you plan on using over-the-counter weight supplements or even

participate in a weight loss activity, the verdict is that you still have

to eat fewer calories than you burn to lose weight. When choosing a weight

loss product or program, collect as much information as possible.

In short, there is no magic bullet just plain old self control and


We believe the answer to permanent weight loss is a change of lifestyle and

thinking. That's why we highly recommend Tom Ventuo's product.

It's an exercise based weight loss plan combined with superb food information.

Weight Loss and Cancer

Excess Weight Linked to 90,000 US Cancer Deaths Annually
Most Types of Cancers Affected By Weight

I reading a horrifying report that I should like you to read if you feel like giving up on .
The American Cancer Society's findings make grim reading for those of us who struggle with our .

Being overweight or obese substantially increases the risk of dying from cancer, according to researchers from the American Cancer Society.

In a new study published in Thursday’s New England Journal of Medicine (Vol. 348, No. 17: 1625-1638) researchers Eugenia Calle, PhD, and colleagues determined that overweight and obesity may account for 20% of all cancer deaths in US women and 14% in US men. That means 90,000 cancer deaths could be prevented each year if Americans could only maintain a normal, healthy body weight.

“As a [nation], we have not really acknowledged the contribution of obesity to chronic disease in general and cancer in particular,” said Calle, director of analytic epidemiology at the American Cancer Society. “We are not taking it seriously enough to turn it around. We are not acting on it.”

The researchers followed more than 900,000 men and women for 16 years to determine the role of weight in cancer deaths.
