This new found diet craze "Sensa" has not only put me in the hospital with a gal bladder attack is it has also effected my heart. My heart is enlarged and is having to be treated with medicatios. I only lost 2 pounds after using religeously for 5 weeks. It seems I cannot find a website to cancel any further charges to my card. Please out any information I can use to "Cancel" Thank you and

I was going to order this product, I am glad that I saw your information.
Being over weight and on a strict income makes a big difference for me.
Please keep informing the public about their poor buisness practices and fraulent product advertisments.

Ordered trail size for free just paying 4.95 shipping. Not told they would charge my credit card 89.95 eachmonth after and recieve nothing for the money. Was not told you joined anything or had to cancel. This company is like the old scams of years back where they didn't tell you all the details

My name is Steven Sikes and I saw your complaint about Sensa. I think you should contact an attorney named Robert Ahdoot, who works at a law firm called Ahdoot and Wolfson. I know he handles consumer protection cases like this one and will probably take the time to speak with you. His number is 310-474-9111.

I'm fat, I'm a nurse. Being fat puts me at risk for gallbladder attacks and just about every king of heart ailment you can think of. An enlarged heart does not happen overnight. It is most often the result of high blood pressure over a period of years as our poor hearts try to push blood out againt all the resistance created by all the fat. If you lose weight you may improve the heart enlargement and gallbladder attacks. FAt, not Sensa is the problem

Sensa - Not Free
United States

NOTHING" FREE" about Sensa. Do not order unless you wish to be charged $89.98 for the "Free" trial. It's a scam, Now will they continue to charge me every month ? Probably! What a HASSEL!!!

Just pass my 30 day trial (9/10) )Saturday and the following day after using Sensa that morning my sight started going Hazy and very sensitive to light. My blood pressure is almost 20 pts above my norm. My breathing slightly abnormal. You do feel tightness in the chest and No did not lose any weight on this product. All week long, been to my eye dr, retina specialist, and my physician. Did this to check my vitals and make sure this is not permanent damage to my vision.
I wouldn't recommend this product to any one. Diet and Exercise I recommend.

Placebo effect can go in a positive OR a negative direction. If you are afraid of something, you can create a feeling of fear and can experience negative placebo symptoms. If you feel excited and optimistic or hopeful, you can have positive placebo symptoms. The ingredients list for Sensa looks a lot like all the same kinds of filler and ingredients found in packaged foods like Mac & Cheese, frozen meals, and candies. I personally have been on a medicine that made me feel hungry for snacks and meals all the time, many, many times a day. After sprinkling Sensa on my food for a few days, which I was extremely skeptical about, my cravings for snacks have disappeared by about 75%. I don't wake up in the morning feeling like I'm starving and need to eat that very moment. I didn't expect it to work, but it is possible that it's a positive placebo effect. It's also possible that Sensa really does send messages to the hunger centers of your brain. Over time, if I stop eating snacks all the time, my weight would go down. I think the negative comments about Sensa's claim of "not having to change" any of your habits are valid--but I also think that if you feel comfortable without snacks or large meals, over time, you are going to discover that your habits will change without your active focus on making the changes. Since it is considered a seasoning, I plan to use my free trial of Sensa to reduce my medically induced food cravings, but my primary weight loss program has always been Weight Watchers, which allows me to determine what are reasonable and healthy quantities of food to eat, and I don't have to spend a lot of money on special materials. I have lost 50 lbs eating fast food within reason while on Weight Watchers alone. As for Sensa being tasteless, it actually does have flavor, but it's very light--I've only tasted Month 1, but the salty one seems kind of oniony, and the sweet one is definitely strawberry flavor.

Have lost 70 pounds with exercising and watching what I eat. I feel every diet plan encourages weight loss but ultimately its the consumers decision on whether they make. Necessary changes. If u really really want to loose weight greedy hamburgees and chunky chocolate cake seems like minor things to give up especially ially for your health. Sensation seems safe and if may even trick your senses into believing your full but anything messing around with me neurological is a side effect itself

Seven weeks of Sensa lead to extreme sharp pains on my right side. Gas, bloating, digestive problems, constipation, diarrhea, belching, sharp pains between my shoulder blades led me to the doctor. I never even suspected it was the Sensa. I was not afraid to use it at all and it did reduce my cravings for food, now to the point I can hardly eat at all without feeling sick. You will lose weight because you are too sick to eat!

Just finished 9 days of tests in the hospital trying to determine why my eyes and skin have turned yellow. My bellirubin levels are off the chart as well as are other liver 'numbers' So far, all tests have failed to produce a cause for my condition other than a 'problem' with my liver and they have tried everything about everything... MRI, CT, unending blood-work, biopsy, ultrasound etc. I started using Sensa about 5 months ago and have used it religiously till I discovered the change in my skin color and the whites of my eyes becoming yellow. At this point in time the consensus of the doctors is that Sensa may well be the cause. Anyone else experience any of these symptoms or results? Thanks

I had only used Sensa for a day and that evening I began to itch around my ear and along the back of my neck. The next morning I still had a itchy rash around my hairline and further up on my scalp. I took some benadryl with little relief. I continued using the Sensa throughout the day because I had not made a connection between the two...until the morning of day three. The rash is all over my body! It itches and just looks bad. The only thing I've done different is sprinkle Sensa on my food. I called the company and told them the problem. The operator gave me the "magic return number" but told me to make sure to track my return because even though I called, if the box got lost they would still charge me regardless of what side effects I had. Wow! But at the moment I'm just curious if anybody else has had skin, rash type symptoms from this product?
