Will Sensa Help You Lose Weight?

It seems people will always be on the hunt for the magic pill that leads to weight loss, and there is no shortage of products trying to satisfy people's need for short-cuts to weight loss. Alli diet pills and Thermo Bubbles both come to mind. There's another product to add to the list called Sensa, developed by Dr. Alan Hirsch. You add these sprinkles to your food, and they supposedly curb your appetite and make you feel full, so you eat less and lose weight. Extra host Dayna Devon says, "It eliminated my sweet-tooth cravings!"

The website says you can eat whatever foods you want when using Sensa, and still lose weight. To find out how that's possible


All you do is sprinkle either the salty or sweet Sensa crystals on all your food. The sprinkles stimulate the area in your brain known as the satiety center, which tells your body when it's time to stop eating, and they trigger the feel-full signal. There are no diet restrictions, but the crystals are added to your foods to help you overcome your desire to overeat.

Sounds like a dream come true, being able to eat what you want and still lose weight, but there's one problem here. People using Sensa aren't making any permanent behavior or attitude changes about food, so they're not going to learn how to keep the weight off once they stop using Sensa. Plus, it's not cheap. A one-month supply costs $59. Seems like another diet scam to me. I sound like a broken record here, but if you're looking to lose weight and keep it off, a healthy diet and regular exercise is the only way to go.
