Sensa – Does It Really Work?

The makers of Sensa sure make some big claims about how well it works –
but is all that true? 

Does Sensa really work for weight loss
or is it just yet another big marketing ploy?

does sensa workBelow are some common (and not-so-common) questions about Sensa that *I* had along with the answers I found for myself (yep, it’s like a “wiki” about Sensa…haha!). Hopefully all this will help you make an informed decision before trying Sensa for yourself as it did for me.  If you’re really serious about losing weight, take a moment and be sure to watch this video BEFORE buying Sensa.

My Sensa Q&A

How Does Sensa Work?

Alright, let’s start off with my first question I had about the Sensa system… HOW does it work? Surely, it’s not pixie dust or magic…there had to be some science behind it. I already understood how all-natural things like Saffron Extract work to curb your appetite, but how can these sprinkle things work the same way?

Here’s the answer about how Sensa works to help you lose weight straight from the horse’s mouth (so-to-speak):

The scientific principle behind SENSA® (created by Dr. Alan Hirsch) is remarkably simple. As you eat, smell and taste receptors send messages that tell your body it’s time to stop eating. This is a phenomenon we call Sensory Specific Satiety. By enhancing smell, SENSA® Tastants were designed to help speed up the process and trigger your “I feel full” signal, so you eat less and feel more satisfied… read more

How To Use Sensa

Alright, that kinda makes sense – it enhances your sense of smell which helps to tell your brain you are full quicker…so you eat less. Got it.

So how do you use the Sensa Sprinkles?

I am not sure what it is that takes my appetite and reduces my cravings, but I have begun to eat less portions of the foods I actually enjoy. I would not have believed it except that I have lost 3 pound in 5 days from portion control. Sensa has provided that for me. I eat my normal foods sprinkled with salt/sugar which ever applies and I eat maybe 4 to 5 bites versus 4-5 pieces of something. I am a stress eater and it had caught up with my 5″4 frame. I love Sensa will continue to use. Rule: USE IT CONSISTANTLY,NOT ONCE IN AWHILE…read more

What Does Sensa Taste Like?

I don’t know you, but if it’s something I’m putting on my already great-tasting food, it better not taste BAD. If it does, I know I won’t use it. Who wants to eat bad tasting food? Or, is that the secret to Sensa – make all food taste bad so you don’t eat? Hmmmm… Not thinking that is their angle, but that sure would cause a “total transformation”…hahahaha!

We’ve all seen the Sensa commercials and infomercials – people at the drive-in shaking that Sensa on their french fries or the other commercial where they put it on ice cream. I know that is what really makes people curious about Sensa – since when can we be on a diet and be able to eat fast food and ice cream??

Anyway, let’s talk about the taste of these sprinkles – actually, let’s WATCH how real people react to tasting Sensa for the first time (some of these folks are pretty darn funny!)

Is Sensa Safe?

Now, we talk about the safety of Sensa. Now that I think about it, that probably should have been my first question, but don’t know about you, but with weight loss stuff, I think WEIGHT LOSS first. Bless my heart {grin}

So, is Sensa safe? Are there any interactions with other foods and/or medications? What about for those with high blood pressure or diabetes or other health issues? Is it harmful if you’re pregnant or for kids (not thinking I would do either of those, but check with your doctor, of course).

Here’s the answer…

The ingredients in Sensa have been deemed safe. It consists of commonly used food additives and fillers that include:…read more

Any Sensa Side Effects?

So now, the million dollar question – what about negative side effects? Have there been any real health-related complaints or horror stories?

Most side effects people experience include stomachaches, headaches, nausea, constipation and heartburn….read more

How Much Does Sensa Cost?

This was a big one for me because I’ve heard a ton of horror stories about their “auto-ship” program. I’ve heard they might offer you a *free* 2 month trial or something but THEN you are set up in the system to where they keep automatically shipping (and billing) you for more Sensa every month and it’s super hard to stop it. This is what I found out about all that:

On the Sensa website I see they will give you a free 2 month starter kit -  BUT if you do not cancel within 30 days you will be charged $89.95 AND you’ll be “enrolled” in an auto ship program where they send Sensa to you each month (at a cost of about $59.95 a month). To opt out of this you MUST SEND BACK THE BOTTLES of Sensa (even if they are empty they say) to not be charged. So, you will have to pay to send them back!…read more

What About Belly Fat? What Helps?

Belly fat is tough to get rid of for many people (I know this…that ol’ muffin top can be a real winger-dinger to deal with).

Sensa may not be the best route is you’re out to slim down that tummy area.

Here’s some info from a doctor that shows how losing belly fat really works.

In this short weight loss presentation I will teach you a somewhat unusual weight loss strategy that can help you get a flatter belly in under 7 days, while still enjoying the foods you love.

This is the first tip that I always teach my patients here in Fishers, IN. And is the same tip that helped one of my patients whom I’m most proud of, (Lori) lose 2 inches from her belly, lose 8 lbs in only 9 days, lose 2 inches from each thigh, lose ¾ of an inch from each arm, and drop 3 dress sizes (At the age of 30, she now wears a smaller dress than she did in high school!)… read more here


What About Sensa Sprinkles – How Do They Work?

Did you know that each month the folks at Sensa send out different flavors of their Sprinkles? Yes, different “flavors” – but they aren’t really flavoring as much as smells. Yes, it sounds weird – here’s how that works…

In the Sensa package, you get several crystal shakers with different tastants. They include flavors like cheddar cheese, onion, horseradish, ranch dressing, cocoa, raspberry, etc. You can use the tastants on all the foods you eat. You may want to keep one in the kitchen, one at work, and take one with you when dining out.

Each shaker has two sides: a sweet side and a salty side. Sprinkle salty foods, like meat, pasta or sandwiches, with the salty side. Sprinkle sweet foods, like fruit, pastries or cereals, with the sweet side…read more
