Beating the Bulge with Proactol

I don’t know about you, but I believe that technology is one of the main reasons why we are nowadays able to live such long and fulfilling lives. Many of us would not have been around today, had it not been for major advances in medical science and technology. So I, for one, am a big believer in using the best that technology has to offer. Yes, we have to develop healthier eating habits, become more active, and all those good things, but…if technology can make life a bit easier, why not?

Have you ever found yourself at a work, family or other social function surrounded by the most wonderful variety of mouth-watering food (high in fat off course), just as you started your new diet? Or do you sometimes feel the need to throw caution to the wind for just one night? Well, fortunately, help is at hand. Fat binders allow us to eat fatty foods and then prevent the excess fat from forming that hated “protective layer” around your thighs or waist!

Hoodia Gordonii report

According to CBS (Correspondent Lesley Stahl – November 2004) people spend more than $40 billion each year on products designed to help them lose weight. Many of these products did not live up to expectations, but a lot of research is underway into solutions for this ever present problem. By all accounts Hoodia Gordonii may finally be the answer.

Hoodia is a natural substance that reduces your appetite. It functions differently from other appetite suppressants and diet stimulants such as Ephedra and Phenfen, that are now banned because of the dangerous side effects. Hoodia doesn’t stimulate at all. Scientists say it fools the brain by making you think you’re full, even if you’ve eaten very little.

Studies showed the diet of the South African bushmen (the San people), legendary for their ability to survive in a very barren environment with very little food available, naturally contains hoodia as a key ingredient since the beginning of human memory. The natural habitat of the bushmen is the Kalahari Desert in South Africa, which also happens to be the only place in the world where hoodia grows wild.

Nigel Crawhall, a linguist and interpreter, hired an experienced tracker named Toppies Kruiper, a local aboriginal Bushman, to help find hoodia. While Kruiper led the 60 Minutes crew out into the desert, Lesley Stahl asked him if he ate hoodia. “I really like to eat them when the new rains have come,” says Kruiper, speaking through the interpreter. “Then they’re really quite delicious.”

When the team located the plant, Kruiper cut off a piece that looked like a small spiky pickle, and proceeded to remove the sharp spines. In the interest of science, Stahl ate it. She described the taste as cucumber-like in texture, but not bad.”
