Dieting is, by definition, a restriction in terms of nutrition the slimmer imposes on their body in order to achieve a desired weight. However, there is also the possibility to lose the extra pounds without cutting down on all those foods that we take so much pleasure in, and it’s called Sensa, a new product developed by Dr. Alan Hirsch that curbs the appetite and tricks the stomach into feeling full.
There are two variants of the Sensa crystals, the salty and the sweet type. What the slimmer does, according to the manufacturers, is sprinkle the crystals on their food and the pounds will start disappearing in almost no time. This happens because the sprinkles act on that part of the brain that triggers the feeling of satiety, sending the message before the stomach is actually full. This way, the slimmer is prevented from overeating, and will lose weight without even cutting down on any kind of food.
“With Sensa, there are no food restrictions. It is designed to help you overcome the biological urge to overeat, so you can reduce your calorie consumption and lose weight while continuing to enjoy the foods you love and feeling fully satisfied. It works gradually, with no shock to your system. At the heart of the Sensa program is a patent-pending technology 25 years in the making. Sometimes referred to as ‘sprinkles,’ Sensa Tastants use your senses of smell and taste as allies in weight loss. Sprinkling Tastants on your food makes you feel full faster by stimulating the part of your brain that tells your body it’s time to stop eating.” it is said on the official page of Dr. Alan Hirsch’s product.
Apparently, trials for Sensa have returned the most encouraging results, with 1,436 women and men aged 19-55 losing an average of 30.5 pounds over a 6-month period using Sensa. “No other weight-loss product has such extraordinary clinical results.” the team behind it confidently claims. However, that does not change the fact that, in order to maintain in top shape after weight loss, slimmers must make continuous use of Sensa. At $59 for a one-month supply, that could be a problem for many.
There is also the issue of the slimmer’s attitude to food, several health-oriented publications are pointing out. Since nothing changes about that and the person in question does not see losing weight as a change in diet and lifestyle, chances for success (meaning, of keeping the pounds off once the “diet” is over) are slim to none.
