Since I have started eating clean, I have lost a significant amount of weight. While I wish that I could say that I am at my goal weight, unfortunately I still have a ways to go. I contribute this to the fact that I still love to indulge in rich gourmet food from time to time, my love for wine and the fact that I sometimes have a problem with snacking.
Now, I am not sure that there is anything that is going to completely address the first two issues. I have been cooking from Bon Appétit and Food and Wine since my early twenties and I do not think my love for gourmet food is going anywhere. I am doing much better at turning gourmet dishes into more healthful options, thanks in large part to what I learned in the The Eat-Clean Diet.
As far as the snacking goes, I am always on the lookout for things that can help me to control my appetite. So, when I recently heard that hoodia tea was an excellent appetite suppressant, I decided to give it a try.
To be perfectly honest, I drink tea all the time anyway. Both green tea and oolong tea are a regular part of my day. While both work to help burn fat and are a great addition to healthy eating and exercise, I haven’t found that either worked to completely eliminate my urge to snack. So, I thought I would add Hoodia Slimming Tea into the mix and see what type of results I got.
As I have said before, I am in Arizona. Hot tea and Arizona in August just don’t mix. So, I like to brew a strong pot of hot hoodia green tea and turn it into a big pitcher of unsweetened iced tea. Then, I sip on it all day long (until 2 PM which is my personal caffeine cut off!) along with plenty of water.
I have to say, I was pretty impressed with hoodia tea’s ability to help control my appetite. I had heard that research had shown that people were able to eat 1,000 calories less than they normally did when drinking hoodia tea, but I honestly didn’t believe it. For me, anyways, it seemed to work fairly well. Now, I am not saying I was able to survive on no food thanks to hoodia – but that wasn’t my goal anyway. I am merely trying to stop unnecessary snacking and help keep my portions in check.
While there hasn’t been a great deal of research to support the idea that hoodia tea can help with weight loss, there is some early evidence that suggests it does. In a study conducted at Brown University and published in Brain Research, the P57 molecule was identified in hoodia. This was shown to be 10,000 times stronger than glucose and work into fooling the body into thinking that it is full. Apparently, it works on the hypothalamus to reduce the appetite.
It is important to understand that hoodia tea does not burn fat, so it isn’t going to do a thing for you if you don’t actually make an effort to eat less. Still if you focus on eating things like my favorite hummus recipe, stir fry recipes and black bean recipes hoodia tea can help you control cravings. And of course, you want to keep on cooking quinoa and try to make sure that the quinoa recipes you making are as healthy as possible.
One thing I really liked was combining Wu Long Tea with hoodia tea and trying green tea and hoodia. Both green tea and wu long tea have both been shown to be effective fat burners in medical research. You can also by green tea with hoodia already in it!
