Sensa is a weight loss supplement that has garnered much media attention. It is a diet supplement that you sprinkle on to all the foods you eat, which helps to overcome your biological desire to overeat by using your senses of smell and taste. When this happens, you will naturally eat less, and consume less calories leading to weight loss. However, for individuals with diminished or no sense of taste or smell, Sensa will not work.
Dr. Hirsch, the creator of sense, claims that the weight loss effectiveness of Sensa is supported by a clinical trial involving 1436 men and women. In the 6 months test period, the participants that used Sensa achieved a 30.5 pound average weight loss, and the control group experienced a 2 pound weight loss. This may sound exceptional, however, it brings into question the validity of their claimed “clinical study”.
Sensa Scam – Does it Work?
In a news segment broadcast by ABC News, the validity of the Sensa clinical trial was brought in to serious questioning. On that news segment, Dr. Hirsch was shown saying that the sense clinical trial was “Peer reviewed”; however, ABC News later uncovered that the Endocrine Society stated that “it would be incorrect to characterize Dr. Hirsch’s study as having been rigorously peer reviewed by the Endocrine Society”. In the scientific community, for a clinical study to hold any weight, it must be a peer reviewed study, meaning that it must be examined and reviewed by other experts in the same field. However, it is apparent that the Sensa study is not peer reviewed, although Dr. Hirsch claims otherwise.
What’s more revealing is that the Endocrine Society went on to say that “they were surprised and troubled by the promotional nature of his presentation”. Obviously, the Sensa presentation Dr. Hirsch made was more promotional than anything else. Dr. Pamela Peeke who also appeared on the ABC News segment said that: “There’s no magic bullet, and there’s no magic sprinkle.”
So is Sensa really a weight loss scam?
That’s not really for us to decide, so we’ll let the users of Sensa to decide for themselves. The Sensa diet aid has appeared on numerous news reports, with some reporting users having positive weight loss results so far. However, I still remain skeptical about its effectiveness, and at a cost of $ 59USD for a one month supply, it is definitely not cheap. For about half the cost of Sensa you can purchase a weight loss program that’s proven to work such as the Fat Loss for Idiots diet program.
