I lost 35lbs. the old fashioned way but it's winter and -8 today. I dont walk in the winter. I have gained 25lbs back and I'm going to start walking as soon as it starts warming up.If I write down what I eat and walk everyday I lose. I was wondering if someone knew something about Sensa?

I tried it on 2 separate occasions. It made everything I sprinkled it on taste even better, and I wanted to eat more, not less. There is no magic pill, sorry.

My husband has been using sensa for well over a year and has had absolutely no weight loss during that time but he has managed to gain many pounds. I lost 200 pounds 30 years ago which left me thinner but still about 30 pounds overweight. I then re-gained about 50 pounds during that time frame because of my fast-paced and chaotic lifestyle of eating fast-food on the run. Last year, I lost 100 pounds only by altering my dietary intake. I fit into a group of the most sedentary people as I am unable to exercise because I am bedridden and quite a few exercises are not options for me. However, I do not use food as a security blanket, sedative or counselor, it is simply for survival and health. I enjoy good food and really cannot eat something that doesn't taste good just for the sake of eating. I also have times where I crave junk food, candy and soda and I allow myself to satisfy my sweet tooth or I would find myself needing to consume those food items more and more. Having a candy bar or fast food burger does not cause weight gain unless it's 100 candy bars and fast food burgers on a regular basis. I've learned to listen to my body, researchers believe cravings are caused by something our bodies need at that time. When my husband and I first married and I was still fairly mobile, I did all the cooking, portion control and purchasing groceries, like the refrigerator police. My decision to do that was based on the extremely unhealthy eating habits practiced by my step-children and husband which were seriously affecting their health. My husband and step-children, literally never included fruit or vegetables or even drinking water as opposed to soft drinks in their diets which consisted mainly of fried foods at home and fast food which I can no longer tolerate as a regular diet since college cured me of that. My husband lost very nearly 80 pounds without ever beginning a diet. My step-children reduced their cholesterol by 50 to 60 points after our doctor discovered that their numbers were totally out of whack and one 14 year old child was bordering on diabetes when his fasting blood sugars exceeded mine by 60 points. Since making the changes both children now test within normal ranges every annual physical. I also discovered that by controlling what processed foods if any we consumed, that my youngest suddenly no longer needed medication prescribed for his ADHS with violent tendencies in less than 2 years after changing the diet and that he could actually manage his violent tendencies with little effort and now they are nearly non-existent. I cooked all meals from scratch using fresh or frozen foods that contained no preservatives. Now my husband has had to assume the meal preparation and the weight has returned and I am seeing evidence of the children's response with increased lethargy and diminishing ability to concentrate and focus.

It's really about portion control, proper nutrition, treating underlying conditions and understanding that food will not really make you less lonely or happier, in fact, it does just the opposite by creating overweight and obese people who are typically left out of inner circles. Which then gets people stuck in a vicious cycle of eating to medicate thus gaining weight which gets you left out even more and the resulting loneliness requires more food as medication to find comfort.

Good parenting and knowledge and adherence of portion control and required daily intake limits help avoid childhood obesity that winds up creating obese adults and weight loss for those suffering long-term obesity is very difficult.

Although our genes do regulate how our bodies capture, store, and release energy from food, genetics, in and of itself, do not create the obesity but rather creates the foundation or predisposition that one individual over another is more likely to become obese. Environment, familial obesity, childhood obesity and the emotional aspects all contribute to the potential for obesity. While there are some specific health conditions that can be a direct cause for obesity it is a relatively small percentage of all obesity cases, hypothyroidism and cushings disease being the most common ones cited but there are close to 250 conditions that contribute to more frequent obesity. The types of food we consume also alter the metabolism so obesity results since our body no longer functions at the level necessary for maintaining recommended weight.

Attitude and desire to alter your lifestyle and eating habits is the best way to get down to that size you want to be. It takes a lot of self discipline and patience and one really good motivator. Also, being evaluated for any underlying health issues should be examined and treated if they exist and limit the ability for weight loss. Managing both the emotional aspects and health conditions appears to be the most successful treatment for losing weight and maintaining the weight loss.

Yes, my husband tried Sensa. Before he got thru the first box of Sensa, he had swelling in his feet, ankles, and hands. We sent the stuff back REAL quick!!! Not for us.

I used SENSA for 6 months and lost 20 pounds. It worked great for me. I was never hungry and simply quit eating when I was full. SENSA took away my cravings for sweets and allowed me to eat and lose weight comfortably.

yes it very good an works well if you forget to shake it on something dont worry just do it on the next the video that comes with it shows you how much to put on an you dont have to limit yourself of what you eat a 2 mont supple is like almost 100.00 i think unless its gone down now but i seen at walmart that nv an hydrocut has come out with sprinkles an i heard for a fraction of the price it works just as well i dont know but i think it costs like 20.00 for a month but the trail for sensa is free for 1 mont then your card will be billed for next shipping of 49.99 or 59.99 but double that price for a 2 month supply cause thats what i heard they do unless that changed but the hardest thing is to remeber to put it on everything you eat except liquids like soup an drinks you cant i think but you dont put alot on an for grapes grapes wet them a little with water but it tells you for which to use like for salty sweet watch dvd first an make your own decision if you can afford about 100.00 every 2 months it adds up or to start with the other brands that are cheaper it more of your own perspective of what you want but it works but it cost right at about 600.00 plus shipping for a year of it but it all depends on how much weight your needing to lose i would try the free trail an see if you lose anything during the trail an if youe willing to pay that if it's worth it to you i did lose some weight so its about your choose an finances i hope this helps anyone out there

I've tried it and it doesn't work. I returned the unused portions and never received a refund either. It's very expensive and I wouldn't order from that company again.

What is the name of the book?

If you google this product you will find the ingredients apparently are: maltodextrin, tricalcium phosphate, silica, and flavors.

Wikipedia defines these as:

Maltodextrin is an oligosaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a white hygroscopic spray-dried powder.[1] Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless. It is commonly used for the production of sodas and candy. It can also be found as an ingredient in a variety of other processed foods.

Tricalcium phosphate is a calcium salt of phosphoric acid with the chemical formula Ca3(PO4)2. It is also known as tribasic calcium phosphate and bone phosphate of lime, BPL. Calcium phosphate is one of the main combustion products of bone, see bone ash. In general cases, calcium phosphate is also commonly derived from inorganic sources such as mineral rock.

The chemical compound silicon dioxide, also known as silica (from the Latin silex), is an oxide of silicon with the chemical formula SiO2. It has been known for its hardness since ancient times. Silica is most commonly found in nature as sand or quartz, as well as in the cell walls of diatoms.[2]
Silica is manufactured in several forms including fused quartz, crystal, fumed silica (or pyrogenic silica), colloidal silica, silica gel, and aerogel.
Silica is used primarily in the production of glass for windows, drinking glasses, beverage bottles, and many other uses. The majority of optical fibers for telecommunications are also made from silica. It is a primary raw material for many whiteware ceramics such as earthenware, stoneware, porcelain, as well as industrial Portland cement.
Silica is a common additive in the production of foods, where it is used primarily as a flow agent in powdered foods, or to absorb water in hygroscopic applications. It is the primary component of diatomaceous earth which has many uses ranging from filtration to insect control. It is also the primary component of rice husk ash which is used, for example, in filtration and cement manufacturing.

I couldn't find any specific definition for 'flavors' but am assuming it is some chemical additive to improve taste.

All in all I would suggest that eating a proper well balanced diet with exercise, plenty of fresh water is the way to go. While saying away from chemical laden diet aides and processed foods of course.

When I first purchased Sensa, I read all the ingredients just to be sure it was safe. So I started using the product according to directions and after 3 days, my esophagus started to become irritated, I began to cough every time I used Sensa. After a week my throat started closing up, so I called customer service to ask if this was normal and no one seemed to want to believe I was having an allergic reaction to the product. They kept saying, "it's all natural," so that shouldn't be happening, are you sure? and at that point in time I had acceded the time allowed to return the product or I couldn't return it because I had opened it. The bottom line was I could not return the product and I couldn't get a refund. Sensa should come with a warning saying something like: Do not use sensa if you have esophageal, hiatal hernia, or any other stomach disorders.

Absolutely. I was barely three weeks into it when I began to have swelling in my ankles and feet. Since that had never happened before, I knew it was the Sensa. Meanwhile, I had lost absolutely 1 1/2 lbs, and not like I was indulging in pizza and ice cream, I was eating sensibly. I would have lost that much weight anyway. I am sending it back for a refund immediately.

I'm man who has trouble losing weight. Sensa did nothing to help me. It actually made me retain a whole bunch of water. My girlfriend decided not to try it, and she's better off for it. I never had any serious medical reaction to it- it just doesn't work. I did lose some weight, but that was mostly because I cut out bread and stopped eating out as much. The Sensa did not control my appetite at all. I was hoping it would. It doesn't make things tastes better or worse. I believe they want you to get tired of sprinkling it on every dang thing you eat so you'll just give up and not eat as much. Sensa didn't work. I reckon it may work for a few people, but not for me.
