First off, I am not someone who needs to loose a lot of weight. I stumbled upon your forums while looking for ways to just loose 20 pounds on my gut before summer. So forgive me for barging in However, I've been reading about Hoodia for some time now, because I'm researching it as part of a 'scammer' marketing paper. Even though some of you have pointed this out in a few posts, I've noticed that it seems to go unnoticed. HOODIA is NOT on the MARKET!!! Whatever they are selling all over the place...internet, TV, Radio...etc... IS NOT THE REAL THING! It will not be available in pill, or any other form for years, if at all. Testing is still ongoing, and hasn't reached the marketting stage yet. So Please! I know it must be frustrating to want to believe something so bad that you'll almost pay anything for a "miracle" but try and refrain from sending these scumbags any more of your hard earned cash. If you are taking a pill that you thought was "hoodia cactus" stop. You have no idea what is in it. It could be sawdust for all you know. Or worse.
