Don't do fad diets. I've only been a bit over weight once in my life and it was because of junk food. Didn't have a choice, had to eat what I got.
Just eat real food, you know the food that doesn't come in a can, plastic packet etc and you won't get fat.
I just buy raw ingredients and avoid ready made anything and no one in my household is overweight. My husband is a bit but he buys a energy drink, pkt of crisps and a chocolate bar very morning on the way to work and eats tons of 2 min noodles and blocks of cheese lol!

if the garcinia cambogia works as described (busting fat and curbing the appetite) then it could very well become part of the "real world" and may only need an occasional adjustment up or down. people don't stop taking their lipitor just because their cholesterol readings have come down to a healthy level, do they? it's called maintenance.

I, personally, have not tried Sensa. I'm starting to see more ads on TV.

I watched a few seasons of Millionaire Matchmaker, with Patti Stanger. She appeared to have lost a lot of weight, & recall her mentioning Sensa. You can read more here:

Sensa Reviews by Patti Stanger: I LOVE SENSA! | Sensa Blog

That's about all I "know" about Sensa.

I go with the "Mother Nature doesn't make mistakes" theory. I don't eat ready-made meals or packaged foods. I am 5'6" and wear a size 10/12. I have since I was 21--before that I wore a size 5-7. I don't own a scale. If my clothes start getting tight, I back off on the butter, up my exercise, and eat more veggies, and eat my biggest meal in the morning. And, I eat real food--it tastes so much better!

Thanks for the replies. It seems like no one really tried it. Maybe it's psychological. You think it makes you full so you are

vitauta tried it and it didn't work for her.

Yes, the seller's theory is that it's psychological, but it hasn't been proven. What has been proven is that eating a cup of non-cream-based soup or a salad before meals can reduced calorie intake during the entire meal by up to 20 percent: Stay slim with this mealtime trick: start your meal with one of these healthy soups and salads
