What happens when you stop taking them? Most people go back to their regular eating habits and end up back to square one.

Nothing worked for me back in the day... in fact all I got out of hoodia was a severe stomach upset. What works for my appetite now is eating better.... protein, fiber, good carbs, whole grains, low fat dairy, healthy oils. Like the previous posters said, if you're eating right you won't be hungry.

Never could find that one worked. like the PP, I eat clean and find that if I eat enough veggies and fruit, I am not hungry, the fiber and all the good stuff in what I eat keeps me satisfied until the next meal.
Suppressants play with my metabolism and I end up being hungrier.

I don't need appetite suppresants, I eat clean, balanced and healthy; complex carbs (fiber), healthy fats and lean protein and I am satisfied all day.

Besides, what do you think happens when you stop taking them? You're still going to have the root of the problem that made you gain weight in the first place... over eating. Which means, you're far more likely to gain the weight back than to keep it off. Suppliments that supress your appetite are just a band aid solution and won't help you conquer the issues that made you gain weight in the first place.

There are several "eating" habits that can help with excessive hunger.
1. Eat within your SP calorie range
2. Eat within your SP protein range
3. Get at least 20 grams of fiber daily through food selections
4. Select foods in a more whole state; not overly processed.

I don't have a need for suppressants.
I eat the right things, and I am not hungry.

What has worked for you?

I used hoodia gordonii and I have also used saffron extract, all taken right before or with meals.
