Sensa Weight Loss Review


obese1Too good to be true? A weight-loss aid that finally curbs your hunger through your own senses? The Internet is littered with Sensa ads. Is there finally a product that you can trust to give you desired results? Read on and let me bring the light to Sensa.

What is Sensa?

Sensa diet aid was developed by Dr. Alan Hirsch, a medical practitioner who has spent many years researching. His focus of research is the senses of smell and taste. The Sensa diet works on the premise that by enhancing your sense of smell, it will tell your body it’s time to stop eating. You eat less and feel more satisfied. Sensa has received much attention because of its claims of no food restrictions. You can eat what ever you want, but in smaller amounts, reducing caloric intake, thus leading to weight loss. All this by sprinkling some Sensa tastants on your food. It claims that it is clinically proven and the in the test trial individuals lost in a 6 month period up to 30 lbs instead of only 2 lbs in the control group. Sounds good to be true? Is it another scam that follows “Alli” in its foot 7steps (remember the fatty stool as a side effect)?

What are the ingredients?

Sensa contains Maltodextrin (derived from corn from the USA), Tricalcium Phosphate, Silica, Natural and Artificial Flavors.

In case you don’t know what the ingredients are and what they do for you, here is a quick summary:

Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. And a food additive is a substance added to food to preserve flavor or improve its taste and appearance.

Tricalcium Phosphate is combination of calcium and phosphate compounds found in nature and essential for proper human bodily function.

Silica, an oxide of silicon, has been known for its hardness since antiquity, is found in ceramics, sand or quartz. In food production, it is used primarily as a flow agent in powdered foods, or to absorb water.

Natural and artificial flavor enhancers. Tumeric is a natural flavor enhancer and Red 40 or Yellow 5 are chemical enhancers.

Are there side effects of these ingredients?

First, let’s talk about the food additives. They are used to preserve food. To make it taste palatable. Sure, processed food doesn’t taste as good as fresh, organic local food. Why then increase food additives on food that is already processed?

Regarding calcium phosphate, according to, side effects from taking calcium phosphate may include nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, constipation, dry mouth, increased thirst and increased urination. Side effects that occur when taking calcium phosphate as a calcium supplement are all health risk indicators and you should contact your doctor if you experience the aforementioned symptoms.

Silica is an absorbent. Our body is composed of 66 percent of intracellular fluid (inside the cells) and 20 percent of extra cellular fluid (outside the cells). By taking Silica additional fluid is absorbed. We need fluids to nourish our cells and transport waste. Less fluid will concentrate the waste in our system and possibly provide less nourishment to our cells.

Artificial flavorings such as Red 40 or Yellow 5 have shown to be carcinogenic. Studies have also linked artificial additives to learning disabilities, ADD and behavior disorders. Although, the FDA has approved Red 40 or Yellow 5 as safe as a food product. Sensa comes monthly installment and in different colors. And what do you think those colors might be? Perhaps not red, perhaps not yellow. I don’t want to find out and neither should you.

Not all bad…

There is really good advice answering the question “What if I don’t lose weight”? Here are the recommendations on the site that I highly recommend as well:

Eat slowly, and pay attention. As soon as you START to feel full, you should stop eating.

Having smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day is a highly effective way to boost your metabolism.

Since you are trying to lose weight, it is important that you stop eating when your body signals “satiety” or “fullness.” You should stop at the onset of these signals, not once you are already feeling full (or worse, too full!).

Anyone who would like to lose weight needs to be concerned about calories. That is a given. Yet a calorie is not a calorie. Our systems depend on nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and other important ingredients to function efficiently till older age and to live younger longer. And to eat calories exclusively from processed, fried, and chemically altered foods will not achieve this result.

Just simply compare individuals of same age, gender and lifestyle who have been eating fast food for lunch and dinner to individuals who have been living in areas where no fast food exists and food is provided from local resources and the land.

Think before you take that next bite.

Stay focused.
