Hi MINKY1111 !

I'm glad that you've found things that work for you. However, they might not work for everyone. The problem is that the media tends to cherry pick sensational bits and pieces of information whenever a new "study" is released. I've read the articles that said that eating hot sauce or hot food "might" help a person lose weight. But, there really is no hard evidence. The data is inconclusive. Which is the problem with all these different studies. That's why some things might work for some people, but not all.

Everyone seems to have a cure for obesity and yet, there is still an obesity problem in the United States. Unfortunately, there really is no fast way to take the weight off and keep it off. I wish there were. Weight loss really is a slow steady process that takes time.

You've done a fantastic job. Congratulations on your own successful journey !

I'm sorry, but neither sensa nor respberry ketones have been shown to have any effect in humans; with the ketones, there's been ONE study done, on mice... it hasn't been tested at all in people. Sensa's a total scam. Any effect it may have is purely placebo.

You are also undereating... if you're eating under 1,000 calories per day, that's not enough to support your body's needs, and you are likely slowing your body.
