I didn't lose or gain any weight.

Do not do the free 30 day trail with sensa, because it will take a lot of time and effort for you to cancel your trial.

Even though advertisements state that sensa product is odorless and tasteless, it affects the taste of food. I also experienced stomach upset with the product. Most disappointing however, I actually gained weight while using the product as instructed.

THIS IS A SCAM!!!!!!! I KNOW 2 OF THE GIRLS THAT ARE "CLAIMING" THAT IT WORKS FOR THEM. THE TRIALS WERE DONE AT A COMPANY OWNED BY ONE OF THE GIRLS. HER NAME IS DOLLY, AND SHE IS IN THE COMMERCIAL. SHE GAVE ME SOME TO TRY AND IT DID NOTHING FOR ME. SHE ASKED ME IF I WANTED TO GET PAID TO PRETEND THAT IT WORKED FOR ME. I'M NOT OVERWEIGHT, SO SHE SAID SHE COULD JUST PHOTOSHOP ME TO LOOK LIKE I USED TO BE FAT! I DIDN'T DO IT, BUT MY FRIEND AT THE TIME DID. SHE'S THE ONE WITH LONG BROWN HAIR SAYING THAT SHE'S "GETTING CHILLS." THE PICTURE OF HER IN THE PURPLE HALTER IS PHOTOSHOPPED. I HAVE KNOWN HER FOR OVER 10 YEARS. SHE IS A PROFESSIONAL DANCER. SHE HAS ALWAYS HAD ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING BODIES I HAVE EVER SEEN. I DID A DANCE SHOW WITH HER, THAT WAS ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA, AND SHE WORE THAT SAME OUTFIT. SHE HAS NEVER BEEN FAT... EVER. I'M JUST LETTING EVERYONE KNOW BECAUSE I THINK IT'S DISGUSTING TO LIE TO PEOPLE THIS WAY. MY HUSBAND AND I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT WHEN WE SAW THEM ON THE COMMERCIAL. SAVE YOUR MONEY. IT'S A SCAM!

I'm surprised they allow this infomercial to be on TV. To me, it's FALSE ADVERTISING. I purchased this product and used it religiously according to the instructions. I saw no difference...none at all...in sprinkling this crap on my food. Don't waste your money, people. You'll be thoroughly disappointed and you can NOT get my money back because the supposed "guarantee" is also false!

I ordered the product and paid the $89 at that time. Two months have passed and I have gradually gained 8 lbs. I followed the directions and did not lose one pound during this two month period. I kept thinking the weight gain might be water weight but it turns out it is real fat. I was truly disappointed in this especially since the reviews on the televion infomercial were showing rave reviews from people claiming they lost an amazing amount of weight. I cannot recommend this product at all.

I tried the product for 3 weeks, stopping in time to return it for my money back. Although there is no mention of specific side effects in the literature that came with the product, I experienced (highly acidic and burning) diarrhea when I used the amount recommended. I did not experience any weight loss during this period.

I tried Sensa, but after only 8 days started feeling very bad, my normally low blood pressure was through the roof, the inside of my mouth was very sore, pineapple felt like I was eating fire. Went to my doctor who said one of the ingredients was a stimulant, I can't take stimulants. Stopped using Sensa immediately, took another week for my blood pressure to go back to normal. Then to top it off Amazon would only give me less than half refund because the first month shakers were opened. Sensa company was even less sympathetic. I think a serious medical problem is bad for public relations, but they don't care. Stay away from just another scam for weight loss!!

I'm about 340 lbs men. I used it for one full month and it did not help, I gained weight about 7 lbs. They sent my money back. I don't recomend any one to even try this. Orlistat or Alli helps, but sensa helps to gain weight.

Crystals tasted and smelled like sweet 'n low and left me queasy. They claim you cannot taste the crystals, but you can. They change the way your food smells too. I could smell them long after the food was gone. I returned the product the very next day. The only way I would loose weight with this is because I couldn't eat the food I sprinkle it on due to the smell, texture and taste.
