Hey guys, I'm just curious how sensa works. I know it messes with your senses, but IDk how or if it's just an appetite surpressant.
Is it, ya know... safe? Or is it a "scientific" (and I use that term VERY lightly) way to starve yourself?

Imdoc...i'm curious as well. I've seen the commercial with the ladies shaking their sensa, and I'm wondering...does it make the cheeseburger disappear?

I tried it once, they also give you a restrictive diet to follow. You don't eat anything you want. You have to make sure you sprinkle the food so that there is sensa in every bite. I didn't lose weight because I didn't want to limit my food intake. I was looking for a miracle, as in the cheeseburger disappearing after I had tasted it and been made full!

Actually, there is nothing in Sensa to make it work. ABC news did an expose on the product. While I couldn't find the ABC news report, I found another link from a news station about the Sensa product.

Sensa works because people think it will work. It's the placebo affect.

Oh, wow... that's typical, I guess. We all want something to magically help. :/

That pretty much sums it up right there. Of course if people are following the diet they give you that is what is doing it and not the magic sprinkles you put on the food.

Ha! Good to know. Gee, who'da thunk that healthy foods and excersize did the trick?
