Fun with drugs! Hoodia

Never one to shy away from trying a new “experimental” substance I, of course, had to give Hoodia a try after seeing a 60 minutes piece on it a while ago.

So how did it work? Stahl says she had no after effects – no funny taste in her mouth, no queasy stomach, and no racing heart. She also wasn’t hungry all day, even when she would normally have a pang around mealtime. And, she also had no desire to eat or drink the entire day. “I’d have to say it did work,” says Stahl.

Kat and I ordered some from (we ordered the Pure Vegetarian Capsules) which has got to be the sketchiest company I’ve ever ordered from online … my identity hasn’t been stolen yet though and spam levels seem unchanged. But I did have to ignore every scam warning sign I’ve ever learned before hitting “submit”. :)

Today is my first day on this drug. I took it a few hours ago and am still alive and feel fine – except for the giant Pink Bunny swearing at me in Sanscrit from behind my huge UFO light in the office. I’m going to take a pill every 3-4 hours and see how easy it is to go without eating. I’ll report back here with results daily.

I’ve done a lot of fasting over the years. It’ll be interesting to see if this makes the dreaded first 3 days any easier.
