Is there a Low Carb support group here somewhere?

I can't seem to find one.

Does anyone use Sensa?

Thanks,

Shelli

I'm not on a low carb diet but I am trying to cut out or lower my intake of all white foods which is mostly carbs out of my diet. I believe you still need to have good grains and low amounts of meat for a balanced diet. Everything in moderation. I have heard about Sensa does anyone think it really works? Does it change the taste of foods? Where is the most reliable but inexpensive way to buy it?

Here's one opinion that I copied from the Mayo Clinic Website:

Do weight-loss products such as Sensa work?
How do weight-loss products such as Sensa, SlimScents and Aroma Patch work?
Answer
from Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.
These scent-based weight-loss products deliver aromas that are supposed to reduce your appetite. Sensa is sprinkled on your food. The Aroma Patch is worn on your hand, wrist or chest. SlimScents is inhaled through your nose before meals.

Alan Hirsch, M.D., who developed Sensa, says proof of its effectiveness comes from a six-month study he conducted in which participants lost an average of 15 percent of their body weight. The makers of Aroma Patch and SlimScents point to another study by Dr. Hirsh to bolster their claims. That study, which was reported in a medical journal, showed that volunteers who used an aroma inhaler lost an average of 2 percent of their body weight over six months. However, neither of these studies lasted longer than six months. So they didn't look at whether participants were able to maintain the weight loss over time.

So can these weight-loss products lead to significant, sustainable weight loss? The jury is still out on that question. Even some of the makers of these weight-loss products acknowledge that losing weight comes down to diet and exercise. It makes more sense, then, to skip the scents and focus on what's proven to work — reducing the calories you eat and increasing the calories you burn through exercise.


So, in other words....diet and exercise, kids! Laughing
I've also read that when you order Sensa, they keep charging your credit card and it's hard to cancel.

Shelliegl,

Remember it is best to avoid as many carbs as you can from the late afternoon on. The reason behind this is that our metabolism slows down as the day progresses. So eating the carbs in the morning and for lunch is a good idea when our metabolisms are working at their best.

Protein, good fats (unsaturated), and veggies are the choice for evening meals.
