While millions of Americans continue to jump into the latest diet fad in hopes of losing weight, most end up stuck on a yo-yo cycle of weight loss and weight gain and miss out on eating foods they truly enjoy.
Sensa, one of the latest weight loss aids to enter the market, offers a radically different approach to dieting and weight loss.
Sensa works by curbing appetite so that eating smaller portions becomes a natural habit. Instead of forgoing certain foods, counting calories and following restrictive diet plans, sprinkling Sensa crystals on food allows the dieter to continue to eat regular foods but pay attention to their body's fullness response. Sensa Tastants are designed to trigger the feeling of satiety early in the meal so that eating more simply feels uncomfortable.
Sensa is not a drug, and does not contain ingredients found in many diet pills on the market. The product is made with maltodextrin, tricalcium phosphate, silica and natural and artificial flavors. It's also calorie-free, and can be used as a topping or seasoning on almost any food. The product works by sending satiety signals to the brain and hypothalamus to naturally suppress the appetite.
But does this weight loss program really work?
The Sensa weight loss system is backed by several clinical studies and has been tested by Dr. Alan Hirsch, Neurological Director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago. He developed the flavorless crystals that can be sprinkled easily on food to make it easier to manage portions, regardless of the type of meal. Since the Sensa weight loss system encourages people to pay attention to their feelings of satiety, it may help some people lose weight naturally because they are only eating when they are truly hungry.
A one-month starter kit costs $79 online, and larger quantities are available. Sensa crystals are designed to be sprinkled on meals and snacks to evenly coat the foods, and come in both Sweet Tastant and Salty Tastant varieties.
