Sensa is weight loss product that claims to help users lose weight without being subjected to any type of diet or exercise. The product comes in the form of “tastant crystals” that one sprinkles on his or her food during a meal in order to stimulate the brain’s responses and signal the stomach that it’s already full.
Meaning to try the product out, I read a lot of feedback from Sensa users both good and bad, and so I decided to investigate further and see why it was getting mixed responses from users.
Now, I am by no means a rookie when it comes to trying out different weight loss supplements, and being a mom to four kids I can say that I’ve had my share of weight issues. I’ve tried just about every diet and supplement in the market, with some being better than others, while a few being nothing more than scams.
What the Product Offers
When you visit the Sensa website, you’ll notice a number of user testimonials and a free trial offer for 30-days. You’ll also get the usual info about how the product proves to be effective and how clinical studies found out that Sensa has helped those in the program lose as much as 30 lbs in 6 months.
Basically, Sensa works by “tricking” your brain into sending signals to your stomach and allowing you to feel full even if you don’t eat as much as you’re used to. What struck me as odd however is the product’s claim that one can lose weight even without following a diet plan, meaning you can eat anything and everything you want and still lose weight as long as you use Sensa with every meal. This is a pretty bold statement for a product, so I decided to go for their free trial to check it out.
My Sensa Experience
Thinking that I was getting a good deal since I only needed to pay for shipping, I entered all the necessary details as indicated on the website including my credit card info. Since I’ve tried free trials for weight loss supplements, I knew not to skip the fine print as I was pretty sure there had to be a catch on there somewhere. True enough, there was one in the Sensa free trial.
What I found out is that when you sign up for the free trial, you are given 30 days to see whether or not the product works for you. If you don’t cancel your subscription within this period, you will automatically be billed for $89.95 as payment for another shipment and every 60 days thereafter. This was similar to other trials I’ve opted-in before, so I figured I was good as long as I marked my calendar to make sure I don’t get billed without my knowledge.
I got my starter kit a few days later with the package containing the first and second month’s supply of Sensa. I followed every instruction to the letter and eagerly waited for results. The first week passed without any improvement on my weight loss efforts, and the bad thing is that I was starting to feel dizzy after every meal I used Sensa on. Thinking that it was just my body reacting to the reduced amounts of food I was taking, I decided to continue with the product for another week. I was simply too confident that the product would eventually work, especially since there was a clinical study done on it.
Halfway through the second week I was convinced that users who had a lot of negative comments about Sensa were telling the truth, as I didn’t notice any change in my body at all. If anything, the dizziness was starting to get worse and my cravings for sweets have intensified. Seeing that I was still within the 30-day trial, I decided to give the company a call and cancel the subscription so I wouldn’t get billed for $89.95. I also requested for a Return Merchandise Authorization or RMA for me to return the package containing both the used and unopened product.
The Good and the Bad
I was lucky not to be billed for the starter kit and the subsequent shipments for Sensa, so I have no gripes about their refund process. Digging a bit further however, I was quite disturbed to find that the product has not been subjected to rigorous testing by the FDA simply because it is a food additive, so there’s really no way of knowing what other ingredients are used in the product that may cause side effects.
I’m not advocating that you stay away from Sensa though, but I feel that users should be made aware of how the product really works as compared to the testimonials found. If you’re thinking of trying Sensa, make sure you consult your doctor first and see what he or she has to say so you know what you’re getting into. If Sensa works for you, then congratulations are in order. If it does not, you probably start thinking of another alternative other than relying on every weight loss supplement that comes out in the market.
As for me, I’ve stopped taking any kind of supplements for a while and have started focusing on regular diet and exercise. I figured this is the safest way to lose weight after all, and regardless of whether or not you are taking weight loss supplements these two should always be included in your daily routine. I’m currently in the process of trying to lose belly fat, and the good thing is that I’ve found an ebook called 15 Foods that Kill Belly Fat which has helped quite a lot in my efforts. I’ve seen positive results after trying the information contained in this ebook, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for an effective way to lose unwanted fat and get back in shape.
