The use of Sensa has not been shown through research evidence to be a weight loss recommendation.

Think about it.

Magic sprinkles that let you lose weight without changing anything else.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

The entire principle behind them is based on inaccurate science, there's absolutely no reliable scientific evidence that they are even capable of doing what they claim, and none that they do.

Not to mention, then also have deceptive advertising and billing practices that stick you with high-dollar charges you didn't ask for.

Skip the high dollar magic sprinkles.

Faster weight loss isn't better. It took time to get the weight on, it's not good for your body to try and rush to take it off. The faster you lose it, the harder it is to keep it off!

Pretty much every other day someone starts a thread here on the message boards about Sensa.

Here's the thing, as with all things in life, you can't get something for nothing. Diet pills may help you lose weight, but there is usually a terrible price to pay. Pills often cause all manner of issues with people's bodies and long-term health.

The only way to meet your goals and stay healthy is to put the hard work in. You have to learn to live in a healthy way. Short cuts lead to troubles latter.

Like all internet's mostly hype.
Any kind of supplement or diet aid isn't a good choice since it only treats the symptom (excess fat) and not the cause (unhealthy lifestyle), which only you can control.

MANDIETERRIER1 My late hubby and I LOVE Chevrolet - and have had/have a few (old ones :-)

As far as the ads go, I don't see them because I downloaded Firefox and included an ad-blocker - I LOVE it - no more sickening (from the movement) or obtrusive ads take over my computer any more :-)

Spark People doesn't choose the ads, Google does.

I am getting ads for Chevrolet and I tell you a certain place will freeze over before I ever buy a Chevrolet

Does Sensa actually work at all? I just find it odd that they advertise on this site...
