Weight Loss

Question: I tend to eat until I’m stuffed. How can I stop myself from overeating and lose weight?

Answer:   Overeating is a common problem for many of us. Between massive portion sizes and our “clean plate” mentality, we’re likely to eat far more calories than recommended.

The good news is that I have used and have been able curb my appetite with a product called Sensa – click here for more information on Sensa.

First, let me say that I am skeptical and often don’t like to try new things, but in this case I am glad that I did. Second, I really believe that the Sensa company has adapted to this growing trend (no pun intended) by helping people like me take control of my portion sizes.

A Little History on Sensa
You may have seen an infomercial for Sensa or read about it in the New York Times or TIME Magazine. Sensa has garnered lots of media attention due to its unusual weight loss method in which users sprinkle their food with flavorless crystals called Tastants that prevent them from overeating.

A neurologist and the creator of Sensa, Dr. Alan Hirsch says most diets fail because they prevent you from eating the foods you enjoy. That’s not a sustainable or healthy way to lose weight.

I can attest to this. I stick with my diet for a period of time AND always fall of the bandwagon due to cravings that I cannot control. Sensa claims to be different, in that you will lose weight without changing your diet. Well, it worked for me. I can eat the foods that I crave, but I don’t over-indulge…yet I still lose weight.

How Sensa Works
According to Dr. Hirsch, he tested more than 4,000 tastant combinations when creating Sensa to see which ones were the most effective in inducing weight loss.

He said that he discovered that certain scents enhance the smell of food and speed up the satiety process, so users feel full faster and eat less.

Sensa is unique in that it’s based entirely on the science of smell, so there are no stimulants, pills or drugs in Sensa that work against your body’s natural impulses.

Also according to the Dr. Hirsch, when Sensa was tested in one of the largest clinical studies involving a non-prescription weight loss product, 1,436 men and women lost an average of 30.5 pounds in 6 months just by sprinkling Sensa on everything they ate.  None of the participants were told to change their diet or fitness routine. This too is what attracted me.

Dr. Hirsch says that he came up with the idea for Sensa after spending more than 20 years studying patients who lost their sense of smell due to illness or brain trauma and noted that many of them gained weight. That’s because people who don’t have properly working smell and taste receptors have nothing to control their appetite. In fact he says, science has discovered that there are subtle, almost imperceptible scents that can curb our desire to overeat.

So in a nutshell, Sensa enhances the smell and taste of your food and allows you to feel satisfied on smaller portions without feeling hungry or deprived.

Dr. Hirsch also went on to say that by enhancing smell, Sensa helps trigger your ‘I feel full’ signal so you eat less and feel more satisfied and the Sensa weight loss system works to curb people’s appetites so they can gradually ‘shrink’ their appetite rather than turning to crash diets or pills that aim for instant weight loss.

Sensa May Not Be for Everyone
Sensa was right for me, but it may not be right for you. From my point of view, I’ve tried just about everything from strict calorie counting to working out like I was training for an elite marathon and had nothing to lose by trying Sensa – since I always seem to stop for some reason or another and sadly gain back most or all of my weight. I know that I should have more control and focus, but my food cravings and family responsibilities always seem to get the better of me.

In the end, I just knew one thing – I had to do something to get my weight back under control and was happy when I found Sensa. I also hate to admit it, but there are plenty of people with busy lifestyles that possess the will power to control their food cravings and also work out consistently. If this sounds like yourself, you are probably fine on your current path and don’t need Sensa. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case with me.

Tip on How to Get the Most Out of Sensa
Here are some Sensa ideas that I hope you will benefit from. They are my trial and error tips that I now use on a daily basis:

  1. Consistency: Plain and simple – If you aren’t consistent, it won’t work.
  2. How to Save Some Money: I often would forget to bring my shakers with me when going out and in turn, would eat more. The hard part for me was making sure I always used Sensa for every meal and to do so while I was out, I needed to either buy another container and keep it in my handbag or come up with another solution. So here is what I did…I made it a habit to always have some extra Sensa in a separate small container that I kept in my handbag. This way, short errands that led to a quick bite – now meant less of a quick bite. Now that I was covered, I remained consistent. I still kept my main container at home and just kept the second container while I was on the go. The best part is I didn’t have to buy any extra shaker
  3. More is Sometimes Better: When I sprinkled a little on my fav foods (aka yummy tasty fatty bad stuff), it didn’t seem to do the trick and curb my appetite – as I would still eat a lot of it, basically because it tasted so darn good. But when I sprinkled enough on my food so that I could see it covering my food – I would noticeably eat much less
  4. Small Food Items: I love snacks, but there was no easy way to sprinkle Sensa on chips or pretzels without it falling off. Here is what would happen, Sensa would wind up sticking more to the plate than my food. What I learned to do is mist my food very, very lightly with a spray bottle. This would ensure that Sensa stuck to my food and not to the plate
  5. No Liquids: Do not use Sensa with any liquids at all – soups, shakes and more. I don’t know why, but it doesn’t work. Save your time and just don’t do it

The Million Dollar Question: Does Sensa Really Work?
Apart from the success of the clinical study, it turns out I am not the only one that lost weight with Sensa. According to Dr. Hirsch, millions are losing excess pounds with Sensa. And many of them are doing so without drastically changing their diet and fitness regimen. By sprinkling Sensa, they’re losing weight simply by eating less.

My two cents, if you’re tired of overeating and want to take back control of your portion sizes, you can try Sensa free for a limited time. Just click here for a 30 day free trial. It worked for me and hopefully it will work for you. If you don’t like it for any reason – no worries. It is a free trial.

    I received my order last week and still am debating whether or not to send it back because of all the nasty reviews. On the other hand, i also have read a lot of positive reviews. All i can say is that you have to try it for yourself. I realize that everyone is different and people live their lives differently. As with any diet and fitness program, weight loss is purely calories in and calories out. I exercise 5x a week and the scale doesn’t budge, so i know I am eating too many calories. So, what the heck? I am going to give it a shot. After all, this product is made to satisfy hunger and tell the brain when to stop eating. I will continue to exercise and eat healthy. I don’t eat junk foods or processed foods, I just eat too big of helpings. I do suggest to those who fill their stomachs with junk, fried foods, fast foods, and anything else bad for you to change their habits along with their “fullness meters”. Losing weight is a “lifestyle change” and there is not a medical miracle to weight loss.

    I have been being faithful to use my sensa until last night, WOW, I did not use it and overstuffed on a seafood feast. It was a big mistake, I was miserable, I din’t realize how much less I had been eating using Sensa. Thank you Sensa, that proved to me Sensa is really working for me. By the way, I had only been using Sensa for three weeks.

  23. Bob says:

    I just ordered it today. We will see if it works.

  24. Christopher Monahan says:

    as in anything, all done in moderation produces the same result. 2 pounds a week is the norm achieved from any of these “diets”, if you excercise, also in moderation. All who try these things still chip and dip, swill beer, and most known do not get of the sofa to excercise period.

  25. Connie says:

    Will Sensa work for those who have lost their sense of smell?

  26. Dolly Colwell says:

    How does one get additional supplies after the trial has been expended? WHAT IS THE COST?

  27. linda says:

    What about maintaining your weight, i havent seen much anywhere explaining if you have to continue using it , or moderately or what. I wanted this info before i bought it and couldnt find anything.

  28. Cynthia says:

    I saw the youtube video about Sensa and I am still tempted to try it.

  29. MICHELLE says:

    I have to tell you anyone reading these reviews , It works !!!!! I lost the 20Ibs that I was holding on to after having my daughter . You sprinkle it on everything you eat , it curves how much you eat . For example sprinkle on a slice of Pizza and it gives you a felling of fullness where you will not go back for another slice . IT WORKS!!!! You have to sprinkle on everything the more the better , the taste is not bad and you still taste your food . It took me about 3 months with my normal workouts . Now that I reached my goal I stopped using it but you have to be careful to not over eat and maintain a healthy diet after your goal , You can not go back to eating two donuts in the morning after your goal and expect the weight to not go right back . It got me where I wanted to be and I look great again lost the last of my belly . Thank You Sensa IT WORKS EVERYONE !!!!:)

    I suffer from GERD (stomach issues). I often have severe gas problems if I eat the wrong foods. As long as I keep to the right menu of foods I can eat, I keep the GERD under control. I also find that an 8 ounce glass of milk with meds helps coat my stomach. Is SENSA something I should stay away from because of my stomach issues? All other weight loss plans incorporate tomatoes and spices which I cannot have.

  31. Lilly says:

    I just started using sensa 8 days ago. i need to loose 40 lbs….

  32. I started using Sensa on February 1st, 2012. I have been sprinkling it on everything I eat. So far, great success. My goal is to lose 90 lbs. and so far I have lost 20 lbs. I will definitely keep using Sensa. Even though their advertising states that you can still eat all the foods you are accustomed to eating, I have been watching what I eat and if I splurge once in awhile I get right back to watching what I eat and mentally counting my caloric intake. I have most of the time been trying to stay under 1,000 calories per day.
