Has anyone tried it, are you using it currently or know anyone that is? I am curious but I don't think I am quite $89.95 for a two month supply curious at this time.

there's a "does it work" forum, you could check there. IMO, I spend less than that a week on healthy, whole foods for a family of 5, how can sprinkling an unknown powder on any food I want be better? I'd probably eat crap food and be unhealthy

I tried it several years ago - I definitely paid a lot less for it then.

Did it work?

Well, it did get me to the point of being conscious about what I was eating, which I hadn't been doing for a while at that point. Did it get me to eat less? I'm not sure. But I did start tracking and being much more mindful about what I was eating, so I segued into a full fledged diet and did take off some weight. However, I had discontinued using the Sensa after just a short time, maybe 2 weeks or so? So looking back, I think it wasn't wasted money for me at that point in time, since it did kick start that effort. Would I have stayed at it longer that time if I had kept using the Sensa? Not sure, but I did keep at it for several months before following my usual dropping out and yoyo-ing back up pattern.

For someone who is already actively working at weight loss, tracking what they eat, etc, I tend to be skeptical it would make any difference. For someone thinking about dieting and just getting started, sure, maybe- even if it's a placebo effect, it might help.

I have a co-worker that used it and says she lost 4 pounds in few weeks. But to me that doesn't seem like a substantial number considering your body can fluctuate a few pounds daily. It seems way overpriced.

While it might work short term, research the side affects, and the dietary recommendations that come along with it.

The best bet is a sensible lifestyle change. Reasonable nutrition, that balances, nutrition, exercise and allows for life. :D

Thanks everyone for your replies, I am just going to keep on doing what I am doing. But I swear sometimes I wish there was a "magic weight loss fairy dust" :)

Please create said "magic weight loss fairy dust." That would be AWESOME, k, thx. ;)

Lol, patent pending ;)

Although- I do have to admit, sometimes the ketogenic diet seems "magic." Do you agree?

They sent it to me to review. I tried it. Here's my take: My Real Life Sensa Review (http://escapefromobesityreviews.blogspot.com/2012/05/does-sensa-work-real-life-review.html)

I also found this rather recent thread on Sensa: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/does-work/146084-sensa-appetite-suppresant.html

Lyn, I read your review. SO interesting. I didn't realize that was how Sensa worked!! I LOVE eating! It delights all the senses, so taking away one of them would be REALLY sad for me.

If there is anything close to a magic pill, I would think it would be supplements to help balance out your body's chemistry. Things such as- a good multi-vitamin, some good fatty acids (like krill), an amino acid complex (also helps with depression!).

L-glutamine works almost instantaneously for sugar cravings.

Regarding looking for something that makes you feel full, well that would be trying to balance your insulin levels, so that leptin can properly inform your brain that it's content and full.
