does hoodia actually work?, this is what my friend has to say after she heard that I had been using it for quite a while. Well, it did suppressed my appetite to the point that I didn’t ate TOO much now. The only thing that I am afraid of is this may cause liver damage. That is why I decided not to use this for too long. I need to discipline myself—that is to eat healthy foods and be physically active to maintain my ideal weight.
