I signed up for a "Free" Sensa trial and gave them
my credit card for the $4.95 shipping. About a month later they charged my
credit card for $89.95 that I didn't authorized. I reported the fraud to my
Macy's American Express credit card and they did nothing. The $89.95 was turned
over to collections and my credit card was cancelled by American Express.
What's the Evidence for Sensa?
The company's weight loss evidence is based on a few company-sponsored studies done by Hirsch. These
studies have not been published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.
The lack of published scientific evidence on Sensa, along with a lack of
diet and fitness guidelines to accompany the product, raise a red flag for some nutrition experts.
"This is not a magic bullet," says diet and fitness expert, Pamela Peeke, MD. "It
oversimplifies the complex physiology and psychology associated with appetite."
Ultimately, if Sensa leads you to eat fewer calories, it should produce weight loss. However, until more research is done
to support the link between smell and weight loss, many experts recommend
sticking to traditional weight loss plans that involve eating less and exercising more.
Educating yourself about healthy eating and making simple, sustainable changes to your
lifestyle are the keys to lasting weight loss. You can do that without buying a product.
