    Yesterday I thought I was on our message board just doing some reading. I came across some information about ( I thought) african avacados. I know it was African something but now I can't find it. It seems a person is supposed eat just one before each meal and you lose weight like mad.I have looked and looked under everything I can think of about avacados and decided it wasn't them. Who would like to eat an avacado all by itself" anyway? but what was it?

    I know, I know, I am one of those weired people that is always asking about things normal people don't even think about but I do this all the time. Usually I can solve my own questions but not this time.

    If you need help with appetite control try Hoodia Gordonni. It is an african cactus and it is so good that drug companies are trying to derive a prescription from it. I found it by doing a web search and comparing different companies. If you pm me I'll tell you where I found the best deal. Make sure you get 500mg extract. I take 2-3 tablets before every meal and I am eating less and less. I also take 2-3 apple cidar vinegar tablets that I purchased from the same company. They are in capsule form and you can smell the vinegar in them, they are very strong. I haven't weighed yet cause I just had to start taking prednisone for a severe case of poison ivy and I don't want to get discouraged but I can tell you that they do keep you from being hungry. I take 3 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon and 3 at night cause nighttime is my worst craving time. Hope this helps. I also cut out all sodas which I never thought I'd be able to do and eliminated all aspartame. I only drink the flavored waters with Splenda and tea sweetened with Splenda. I don't really miss the soft drinks like I thought I would. I love tea though and the peach flavored waters are so good! Good Luck.
