Another New Diet Do

I've blogged before about
your sense of smell having
a great impact on weight loss.

Well, I just ran across a
new product that professes
to be an innovative weight loss solution.

I'm just going to paste the article here
for your dieting enjoyment.
Let me know if it works for you!

New Food Sprinkle Convinces the Brain to Stop Over-Eating
A California Company has recently launched an interesting new product which may signal a major breakthrough in weight loss. The company, Sensa,, came up with an innovative way to convince the brain to stop overeating.

First the theory behind the product. The obvious fact is that we eat too much. But why? It turns out that's the way our brains are programmed. Throughout our evolutionary history, food has been scarce, so in order to ensure survival, humans have been conditioned to eat as much as they can whenever food is available. Unfortunately, when food is abundant and rich in calories, as it is today, the results can be ugly.

Enter Dr. Alan Hirsch, an intrepid doctor and scientist, whose lifelong specialty has been understanding how our senses, and in particular, smell and taste affect the brain's functioning. Dr. Hirsch noticed that many patients who had lost their sense of smell and taste due to illness or accident experienced rapid weight gain. Certain smells and tastes seemed to be acting on the brain to control the appetite.

Dr Hirsch studied hundreds of compounds and after years of research developed a set of virtually odorless and tasteless food sprinkles that have shown a strong impact on the body's appetite-control center, which he called "Tastants". Then, in one of the largest studies of a non-prescription weight-loss system, these Tastants were tested for effectiveness as a means of weight loss.

The results were significant. Over a 6 month period, 1,436 women and men sprinkled, flavorless "Tastant" crystals on everything they ate, and lost an average of 30.5 pounds - nearly 15% of their total body weight.

Participants achieved these results without having to follow any special exercise regime or diet.

Best of all, because it is tasteless and odorless and contains no stimulants and does not directly interact with the digestive system, there are no unpleasant side-effects. None of the horror stories associated with "fat-blockers" or stimulant based weight loss systems.

According to Dr Hirsch, "With Sensa, you can eat all the foods that satisfy your senses and you don't have to deal with any intense food cravings or feelings of starvation. Sensa merely helps you eat less of the foods you love and gain greater satisfaction from smaller portions."

A flavorless, odorless sprinkle that triggers this type of weight loss - too good to be true? Apparently the company anticipated a somewhat skeptical response from consumers, jaded by a weight loss industry spread thick with misleading claims. For that reason, they have introduced the product through a special Free Trial Offer that lets you try it before paying for it. You can learn more at

Diets, Diets! We ALL know the road we should follow. The road that works for some, doesn't always work for everyone! Some folks take the no carb route, some weight watchers, some the no-white route and some of us make up our own.

It is not the fact that I eat lots and is WHAT I eat! I love pasta, salty stuff and of course sweets! When I learn to give ALL of those up I think I will have a fighting chance!

Well, the end of this journey is near. I know that many have succeeded. I know that you have inspired many. I for one, am still on this journey and I WILL succeed...not in 200 days but perhaps by the end of 2009...after all, I promised to be healthy and look fine in 2009!

I am thinking about all the WORDS written about dieting...Sheesh! And, I always wonder if the SENSA would even begin to work with anyone, I have a suspicion that it would not with me...Me? I love just plain food...It loves me, too. Your journey and your Sister Linda's journey is working, because you are so aware and determined..I wish you the very best! (((Now, I need to still lose that 100 pounds...)))

Doesn't make any "Sensa" to me! LOL We all would love to have that magical pill or whatever to make us stop eating and get thin! But the past has always shown that after a while the side-effects are bad. I'll keep praying for the "magic" fat cure, but for now, I realize it's me and my choices. Well, I'm like Margaret, I have 15 down but 100 left to go! On your mark, get set....GO. Love ya all.

Your journey has been a wonderful inspiration for me. My 200 days should end the middle of August but like you I need to continue on until I am happy with myself.

Having been a "thin" person earlier in my life I am now happy with the progress I am making and I do hope to be what I call "a thin person" before the years end. One of my most important sayings that I have posted in many areas of my home and I say it to myself a million times a day is "NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS THIN FEELS". I do remember how I felt when I was thin, and I know from experience how different people treat you when you are heavier. It's painful and it's unfair because inside I am still the same person at any weight.

As I am doing my speed walking every evening, I have a mantra I say to myself very often and I believe it has truly helped me. To myself, in my head, I repeat "BEING THIN IS POSSIBLE" to the rythem of the music. It sure helps my mind to hear it everyday.

Rae, I am just trying to let you know that you have made a huge effect on my life and I don't want you to be discouraged in any way. All the good intentions you have sent out to all of us will be coming back to you double and you too will find your journeys end. Just remember, there is always an new and exciting journey awaiting us! And please let us know if you head out for another one! Gail
