Sensa serves no useful purpose. It's a scam which you don't need unless you want some extra calories, just love the taste, and don't mind paying $30 a month for sugar.
Sensa consists of Maltodextrin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Silica, natural and artificial flavors plus soy and milk ingredients. They are all cheap ingredients so you're not going to be getting what you're paying for. The first ingredient is, of course, the one which Sensa has most and it's just sugar ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maltodextri... .
Like most supplement scams, you can't believe what you read about it on the Internet because the manufacturers pay for phony reviews like this one ---> http://www.consumerhealthanswers.com/sen... , fake scientific sounding articles, bogus testimonials, fake news reports, etc. They know that you're not going to go to page two of the search results so as long as they can keep their ads at the top of the search engine organic output, you'll be suckered into believing all the propaganda they're telling you.
Sense is supposed to "fool" your brain into thinking you're full....lol. If anything could fool your brain into thinking you're full, how does Weight Watchers stay in business, why are 2/3 of Americans over weight, and who is paying for all the Herbalite, Hoodia, acai, green tea, hydroxycut, and the rest of the junk that doesn't work?
Check out this article and note the excerpt: "I don’ normally like to write about products I haven’ tried myself, but with this one I had to. The negative feedback on this demonic dandruff is just too overwhelming and you should avoid it like the plague. If you do decide (possibly in a drunken stuper) that you simply must try this for yourself, please please please proceed with caution and a credit card with ironclad consumer protection!"
Here's another article. Note the excerpt: "Common side effects experienced while using Sensa include upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhea and hives. If you have difficulty breathing, dizziness or swelling after taking Sensa, you should contact your doctor immediately. People without known allergies have also experienced some of these side effects while using Sensa. Others reported side effects including gas and loose bowel movements. "
And one more. Note the excerpt: "So will it really work? I doubt it. I imagine that in the beginning you might feel fuller and less hungry. But over time your body will just get used to the new smells and tastes. Honestly, this is not a good way to lose weight. Take the $89.95 (every 60 days) and buy a gym membership, Wii Fit, or more nutritious foods. Is it long term? The main reason to avoid Sensa is because it is NOT a long term solution. You do not want to buy their product for the rest of your life to stay slim."
"Fast" is a relative term. To me a fast weight loss is 2 pounds per week. That, however, may be slow to you. Two pounds per week is good. The problem with losing fast is keeping your body properly nourished on a very low caloric intake daily. And, people who lose fast tend to regain the fat more easily. So, two pounds per week is a good loss rate in general. If you don't know how to lose fat, read my answer about how to lose fat --> http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=As615QJM4X_3ID9_05qmmlXty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20111028185603AAVcP4D
Obese people often lose many pounds early in their diet as many have seen on TV's "Biggest Loser". However, that kind of loss is mostly water dumping and not fat. There are no tricks, supplements, pills, etc. that make fat loss quicker or easier than calorie conservation. Remember that when you lose fat, you weight less and, hence, burn fewer calories. You BMR will be lower so you'll have to eat less on maintenance than when you were heavier. And, losing the fat is only the beginning. Once fat is lost, you have to keep it off for the rest of your life and the includes such difficulties as pregnancy, somatopause (the old middle aged spread), etc. It only gets more difficult to stay slim as the years roll by. It never gets easier. So, now is the time to establish good eating habits...the kind that will keep you svelt and fit for the rest of your life.
Good luck and good health!!
