How many crazy diets are there now?!
One of the most recent wacky weight loss solutions is the ice cube diet. Have you heard of it?
These ice cubes contain more than 97% of hoodia, which is a plant extract that is believed to your appetite and cravings, mixed with lemon juice.
This doesn’t sound too bad at first, however hoodia has been a controversial topic in the health market.
Dietician Roberta Anding commented on hoodia saying :
Pfizer actually tried to develop this into a drug and stopped its clinical trials without any real explanation, and Unilever, which makes Slim-Fast, was going to make a dink with Hoodia and they also discontinued development.
Now it is not sounding too good…
What do U think? Would U be willing to try the ice cube diet???
