Overview Of Sensa

Sensa comes in powdered form and shares the similarities of a salt and pepper shaker. In fact that is the sole vision of Sensa, it’s supposed to be used like salt. Simply sprinkle Sensa on every single meal and this will supposedly supply the will power to not over eat and/or stop before you do eat your entire meal. Apparently Sensa has an effect on the brain that controls your hunger hormones. By using Sensa these hormones are stimulated and give your stomach the feeling of fullness before it is actually full.

Sensa comes in monthly supplies and is categorized in a different Testants. These consist of six different patent-pending scent/flavor combinations they claim will help trigger the brain mechanism that signals when you are full. Even if at the end of the month the left over Sensa is advised to be disgarded. This is supposedly because your body can become accustomed to the Tastants and will not be as effective if you use them for longer than 30 days. (Plus why would you buy more if you had some left over – sorry this is our cynical side).  Dr. Hirsch has specifically developed new and different Tastants for each month to ensure that you continue losing weight. If you find that you have a lot of Tastants left over, then you should sprinkle more Tastants on your food the next month.

Ingredient List Of Sensa

Sensa contains Maltodextrin (Derived from Corn from the USA), Tricalcium Phosphate, Silica, Natural and Artificial Flavors, FD&C Yellow 5, and Carmine. Sensa also contains Soy and Milk ingredients.

Sensa’s Guarantee is a thirty-day grace period before you get charged a whopping $89.95 fee for a sixty day supply. AutoShippments are often disguised as free trials, but always be aware that your stuck in this until you get yourself out of it.

Overall Impression of Sensa

This to me screams “gimmick” and I hope if your inquiring about Sensa you can see it for what it is and save $90. If you have any doubt just read the user comments below.  Aside from my rants of companies taking advantage of naive customers, I will give you some background on why Sensa is a failed diet plan. To begin I quote from the official site of Sensa. “The most likely reason that someone would gain weight when they begin Sensa is that they are not yet in tune with their body’s hunger signals. Eat slowly, and pay attention, as soon as you START to feel full you should stop eating. Also if you are already on another weight loss program or diet at the time that you start Sensa, you should continue on that program and use Sensa in addition to it.”  With or without Sensa our bodies already have hunger signals.  They proclaim to having to change the ingredients ever so slightly each month so your body will not become accustomed to the Tastants and it will not be as effective if you use them for longer than 30 days. Convenient for them, not so much for you.  If you really want to lose weight we recommend products that are effective and from Companies that stand by their products, see below.  If you have tried products that you like please comment on them or email us if you want us to review a product.

    FREE 30 day offer? I don’t think so. No where does it say that if you keep the product, they will charge you $89.00, and to mail it back costs over $8.00. I did not have a chance to try it. If it did not work, it would cost me $89.00

    Not happy with the lies.

    I did not like the fact that you are automatically enrolled in a 6 month program and that you have to cancel and return the merchandise within 30 days, otherwise your credit card would be charged $90 every two months. If this kind of arrangement is not illegal, it probably should be. I will never again go for these “free trial” offers.

    You CAN return the product, even if the shakers are empty. Yes, they have an automatic order, but it is easy to opt out on the site. The information about the studies seems reasonable. It is different from just being aware of your hunger and fullness signals, as the odors are supposed to increase feelings of fullness faster, similar to responses from pheromones. And- if $90 for 2 months is expensive, what about the products being touted on this site? $179 a bottle for some pills?!!! Even Weight Watchers costs more.

    The Sensa “trial data” is phony. It was “presented” but never even published, never inspected by anyone. And it was not a valid test, because it did not have a placebo for the control group, so the people “tested” were well aware of being given the product. They also were undoubtedly not really “trial” patients, but clients who already paid for the product, were thus convinced of the premise and were trying hard to eat less, the perfect group for a placebo reaction. And the “control group” might easily have been a complete fiction. You can’t tell until the data is presented and audited by an outside group. The “formula changes” are a con to make you throw away the product rather than use all you paid for, and it also “restarts the False Hope Clock” so you feel inclined to give it another month despite disappointing results.
    No legitimate product makes it so hard to find out the true costs.
    No legitimate product makes it so hard to stop buying, much less get refunds.
    I had to make a Visa Card complaint and have them intervene and they had me change my card number just to stop repeat automatic payments. If I had used some other payment method I would have lost hundreds of dollars on a wishful thinking diet product.

    I just received another shipment of SENSA, which I do not want. I have had absolutely no good results with the first shipment and should have returned it without wasting time trying it. If I need an RAM for returning it, please send it ASAP. Thank you.

    I received my 1st month of Sensa a couple of weeks ago and before I opened it I called Customer Service to cancel my order because I do not want to pay 90.00 every two months. So what the customer service agent did for me because I wanted to cancel, she gave me the products for 1/2 price she told me instead of paying 89.00, now I will pay 44.00 every two months. It was that easy I just threatened I was going to cancel. I still plan to cancel. I am not happy with this product.

    Sensa is impossible to cancel. Do not give them even a try. Do not give your credit card #. They will charge you for months! They claim they do not get the product you return and keep charging. BUYER BEWARE!!

    Does DecaSlim contain magnesium stearate?

    Thank you

    listen up everyone when you purchase these products you need to use a prepaid credit card then you do not have to worry about these companies charging your regular credit card ; cause a prepaid card only has the amout of money that you put on it once you spent the money on the card the company can not debit from the card cause their is no money on it to get. worth looking into

    Hi Tina,
    We looked on DecaSlim’s ingredients on the bottle and it does mention magnesium stearate, which as you probably know is very common in medical pills and supplements OTC and prescription. We have sample of every product we review if you have any questions about other products. It does not say how much is contained.
    Thanks for the question and good luck.

    I bought Sensa on Shop NBC…. and I AM sending it back.
    It hasn’t made any difference in my appetite what so ever – and yes, I am very in tune with how my body feels/changes. In fact, at 60, I’m more tuned in than ever. I bought Sensa – because I’m the kind of person who has to TRY it to believe it and knew I wouldn’t have a problem sending it back to NBC.

    It sounds like it would be a lot cheaper to alternate vicks rub and a foul smelling cheese to smell while you eat ;-D

    I really don’t know why the public falls yet again to these so called products that help you loose weight while “Not changing the way you eat”. Isn’t that the fact why we are overweight, because of the way we eat? If you want to loose weight the first rule of thumb IS changing the way we eat, excersise and proper rest.

    Not to rain on everyone’s parade, but this product actually works for me. An avid yogi and healthy eater, I could not drop the 30 lbs I had gained from years of overeating. I am down 18 lbs at 4 months in. I eat less and do not sprinkle much on my food, and just changed the shaker to a new one a month ago, so changing it monthly was unnecessary in my case. It took me years to gain this weight so would not expect to lose it over night. I have cut down on my food intake and feel much better about myself. With 12 lbs more to go to hit my goal, I have the confidence that I will reach it. So many of you expect something to work overnight, but this is something that only works with consistency, patience and awareness. What works for me may not work for you. In that case try the vapor rub and smelly cheese! LOL! Who knows? Karen may be on to something…
