Coach Miriam Weight Loss Tips

Each year our family takes a vacation to a place we have talked and dreamed about. My husband sets into motion a plan to see that we get to our destination. He saves the money for the trip, looks for places to stay, books the hotel, plans the entertainment and gets the car ready for our journey.  When it comes time for us to go on our trip, I get all of our clothes packed and the food, drinks and treats laid out for each of us to enjoy. I make sure the children have things to do while we are traveling and the suitcases and goodies are sitting at the door for my husband to put in the car. After getting everyone loaded into the car we are off for a super and memorable time to be had by all.  Being married to my wonderful husband for all these years have taught me that planning is more than necessary for having success in whatever you do in life….especially weight loss!

Like many of you, I went through years of trying any and everything diet related to lose weight.  From grapefruits, to meetings, to starvation…I tried it!  The only thing that has ever worked for me is SENSA®!  Once I made the leap of faith and ordered SENSA®, I decided it was in my best interest to invest in the six-month program with SENSA®.  I figured that I had more than 30 days of weight to lose, and I would probably be more invested in the program if I bought the full 6 months.  Boy was I right!  I found it to be effortless and very rewarding. I lost 45# in 7 months. I went from a size 14 to a 4. I weighed in at 175 and now weigh 130 pounds. I eat less than half of what I ate when I started, my cravings are gone and I have learned portion control. Throughout my journey I continue to eat what everyone else was is eating and never had to exercise.

With that in mind, I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you some weight loss tips and the steps I made to make this journey a successful partnership with SENSA®.

  • I sprinkle everything I eat except liquids-Sprinkle right on top, don’t mix it in.  There’s actually a DVD that tells you how much to sprinkle but it does depend on how big your meal is.
  • I use a smaller plate, fill it, sprinkle it, eat it and stop--I try to use a salad plate to eat my meals off of.  It helps me eat less over all and it keeps my calorie intake in check, plus it kind of visually tricks your brain into thinking you’re eating more than you really are.  Try to fill your plate up with mostly veggies, then sprinkle.  Eat slowly, listen to your body, and wait at least 5 minutes before going back for seconds.  Make sure to stop eating when you’re full!
  • I eat 2 small meals, one larger meal and 3 healthy treats every day-Eating smaller meals more frequently helps to keep your metabolism pumping and burning calories.  Another big plus is that you aren’t as hungry throughout the day and less prone to run for the vending machine come 3pm.  Remember you have to eat to lose weight or your body goes into starvation mode and stores away fat, and that’s the opposite of what you want to do!  If you’re hungry, eat!  Try remember to sprinkle and try to make it healthy.
  • I drink at least70 ounces of water daily-I can’t stress the importance of drinking water.  It flushes out toxins and fats and helps keep you full.  Did you know most people mistake hunger for thirst?  Don’t wait until you’re thirsty!  Try for 16oz. of water every 2 hours.  You’ll notice a difference in your skin, in your energy, and in your eating.
  • I am consistent with sprinkling SENSA® on everything!-Many people are quick to say SENSA® doesn’t work, but admit that they weren’t consistent.  SENSA® works if you work it!  Sprinkle EVERYTHING!  The more consistent you are the better it works.

Planning is essential if we want to meet the needs of others, enjoy the relationship on the journey and receive the rewards for all the efforts put forth. I am so glad I took this journey with SENSA®. It really took little effort on my part but staying focused, remembering my purpose and being consistent brought me the rewards I was looking for. I hope you will jump on board and take this journey with SENSA®. If you need some coaching and weight loss tips, I’m here for you!  Here’s where you can find me http://www.mysensa.com/ask-coach-miriam.htm.  Good luck everyone!

Keep Sprinkling,

Coach Miriam

    I have been sprinkling Sensa since April 12 and I have lost 7 pounds already. I am excited!

  2. Hi I just started sense a week ago and I find it changes the taste of my food. Is that normal. I wish I could say I have lost weight but I haven’t I actualy gained 1 pound. Also it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

  3. Hello Martha. Congratulations on your 7# weight-loss! You should be excited and the continued effort on your part and the changes that SENSA® will continue to make on your behalf will be incredible. Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

  4. Annette, thank you for writing to me. It is not unusual to gain weight when you start a new weight-loss product. Your body needs to make a proper adjustment to accommodate the new changes your body is making. Be patient and keep sprinkling everything but liquids. In terms of the taste you are experiencing with SENSA®, this too is not usual. Some are more sensitive that others to a new taste and smell and others do not smell anything. Your body will adjust so enjoy and keep in touch.

  5. Can you just eat the sensa before you eat your food? Why does it need to be sprinkled?

  6. Miriam.
    I have been on Sensa now starting my 3rd week. I have not lost a pound. In fact I have gained. I sprinkle Sensa on everything. I have given up sodas and drink only water, and lots of it. I don’t eat sweets and if I do have a sweet I sprinkle. In the 3 weeks I have planted a veg garden and a flower garden, sweat probably 10 pounds of sweat and still haven’t lost anything. I have a problem staying with diets if I don’t see any loss. I have over 100 pounds to lose and I am desperate. What else can I do?

  7. Hello Cindy. It sounds like you are really working the program. Sensa is non-caloric and alone would not produce weight gain and with that being said, your body needs to make an adjustment to the product for it to get a good result. Everyone is different Cindy and some find that they lose inches before they lose pounds. So get out the measuring tape and see how you are doing in that department. Be patient and keep sprinkling and drinking your water. Results will come.

  8. Hello Melanie. You can just eat Sensa but the way Dr. Alan Hirsch designed it was to sprinkle it on your food so that your natural appetite suppressant system would pick it up from both your taste buds in your mouth and your sense of smell. The tastants work hand-in-hand with eating and sprinkling. The results are a curbed appetite, diminished cravings and you learn portion control. Keep Sprinkling.

  9. I just started the Sensa program. I’m 78 and concerned about possible geriatric side effects. Have you had any reports about this?

  10. Hello Michael. Thank you for writing to me. All of the ingredients found in SENSA® are on the FDA’s GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) list and can be found in foods Michael you already consume on a daily basis. If you have food sensitivities or allergies, specifically to soy or milk or in your case concerns about possible geriatric issues, you may want to consult with your physician prior to using.SENSA®. Keep in touch and thanks for your great question.

  11. Just started 3 days ago. Is one “aware” that Sensa is working, apart from actually weighing? Being a senior citizen, I have concerns that it is harder to lose pounds, as is usually the case. I am encouraged by all the testimonies, and yours too, Miriam.

  12. Hello Dee. Thanks for the great question and your concerns. I am 65 and have lost 45#’s. With that being said, you too can loose. You will notice your cravings and portions size changing as time goes on. You will also experience your clothes feeling looser on you, so make sure you take the time and measure yourself. Keep Sprinkling Dee and keep in touch with me.

  13. Since the sensa product is olfactory in nature if you eat spicy food does it keep it from working?

  14. Hello Tommy. Thank you for your question. The product works with everything you eat except liquids. So you sprinkle and enjoy your meal. Keep us posted on how you and SENSA® are moving forward on your weight-loss.

  15. PraiseGirl50 Says:

    Coach, thanks for the testimony. I just ordered today. I think I have tried all the liquid,pills and counting diets in the world! Quick Weight was my last trial. Not saying they did not work because the last one did…it just did not work for my style of life. I am very sceptical about this Sensa diet, but I will be commintted to what it takes to loose. My goal is to loose 50 lbs by Feb 2012. My yongest son just graduated from high school and I am ready now to focus on me! I am expecting great things from Sensa but I am very sceptical.

  16. Hello PraiseGirl50. Congratulations on ordering SENSA®. I was where you are right now, skeptical but determined to do this for me. I know with your attitude alone you will be a winner. Your goal of 50 pounds is reasonable and obtainable with this awesome product. Get plugged into the Community for the support, encouragement and accountability. I hope to see you there with your success!

  17. Miriam Will a cleansing diet help lose weight faster than just sprinkling your food with Sensa? How long does it take to lose 20 lbs on the average? Do we need to go on a six months Sensa to lose this much weight? We eat mostly vegetables and fruits and some meats. No Carbohydrates to speak of. Hope this wil help tell me what I need to do. Thanks Jere

  18. Hello Jere. Everyone responds differently to a new weight-loss product. The SENSA® Tastants work with your body’s natural appetite suppressing system through your sense of taste and smell. Doing a cleanse is important for cleaning the toxins and impurities out of your body. With that said, doing the combination of both the SENSA® & cleanse would be to your advantage. . There was a 6 month clinical SENSA® study done with 1436 people that lost an average of 30.5 pounds. Best on your journey with SENSA®.

  19. I am excited about this product, Sensa. I just received mine in the mail 2 days ago. I am allready losing weight. I sprinkle and eat. Wow ! What a product. I have allready lost 2 lbs. I drink plenty of water or liquids to flush out the fat and toxins. I walk one mile 3 times a week.
    Now, my question? When I get to my goal weight will I continue using Sensa?

  20. Hello Bev. Congratulations on your 2# weight loss. I am glad you are finding SENSA such a joy to use and getting results right out of the gate! In terms of what do you do when you reach your goal-weight; you can either continue to use SENSA as you feel you need it or stop. The study participants reported sustainability due to practicing moderation with portion control, healthy eating and exercise. Best on your journey with SENSA!

  21. Maylene de leon Says:

  22. Hello Maylene. Yes, you can stay on any other product you desire while using SENSA. SENSA works with your sense of smell and taste. SENSA doesn’t contain any sodium, stimulants, or sugar. All the ingredients are on the FDA’s generally recognized as safe list and are found in everyday food, Maylene, best on our journey with SENSA.

  23. Virginia LaBella Says:

    I am a type 2 diabetic and NEED to lose 50lbs. I lost 2 lbs my first month and am starting month 2 today. If I am eating something like a container of yogart and I sprinkle on the top, as I eat down in the container do I sprinkle again or just one sprinkle on top for the whole thing? Same with pasta, just sprinkle the whole plate once or again as you eat the top layer off?…Thanks

  24. Hello Virginia. When you are sprinkling semi-solid food you do want to sprinkle layer by layer and this does include your yogurt and pasta dishes. May you have much success on your SENSA Journey Virginia and keep in touch with me if you have anymore questions or comments.

  25. I’ve heard of Sensa for a while but was skeptical to buy it. Now after having my thyroid removed, bad eating habits and my pregnancy, I find myself at my heaviest with 192lbs (i used to weigh 125lbs before all this). I want to go back to my old weight and stop feeling likea failure and find some self-esteem, so decided to give it a try and just purchased the 60 day trial. Should I go ahead and order the other 4 months? also, if I want to continue with Sensa after the 6 months, do I start over with the month 1 tastants? I appreciate your words of encouragement, and your testimony… I hope I can follow your steps. Thanks again

  26. I’ve heard of Sensa for a while now, but was always skeptical to try it. After having my thyroid removed, bad eating habits and my pregnancy I find myself at my heaviest with 192lbs (I used to be 125lbs before all this happened). Now, I want to take control of my life back, gain some self esteem, and be back to my normal weight. I just ordered the 60 day trial kit, but was wondering should I go ahead and order the other 4 months too? also, once I reach the 6 month, should I start over with month 1 tastants if I want to stay with Sensa? I appreciate your testimony, your words of encouragement, and your help.

  27. Hello Annie. I am encouraged by your determination to make a difference in your life and do what you can to see that you arrive at your destination. There was a 6 month clinical SENSA study done with 1436 people that lost an average of 30.5 pounds. You are looking for the similar results and with that said, I would recommend you give yourself the 6 months to experience a curbed appetite, your cravings diminished, the ability to practice portion control and your desired weight-loss. Annie best on your journey with SENSA.

  28. Hello! I am in my BMI {on the high end though} I am going through menopause and I am finding it is difficult to lose! I would like to lose about 10~15 lbs. Does Sensa work for people who only need to lose a small amount of weight? Also, does this have any interference with any medications? Thanks!

  29. Hello Robin, What great questions. I am 67 years old and have lost 45# in 7 months and have gone from a size 14 to a 4. Your chances of losing are as good as mine. When it comes to health concerns it is good to know that all of the ingredients found in SENSA® are on the FDA’s GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) list and can be found in foods you already consume on a daily basis. Some users embrace new healthy lifestyle changes when they start SENSA® that can result in temporary side effects. If you have any medical concerns whatsoever, we recommend you consult your physician. Best to you on your journey with SENSA.

  30. Hi, I have been on Sensa for about 3 weeks now and dropped 3 lbs. I also eat well and exercise 4x’s a week. My only problem is that I get horrible headaches from it,, is this common?
    Thanks!

  31. Hi Lisa. Some users embrace new healthy lifestyle changes when they start SENSA that can result in temporary side effects. For example if you give up soda or other caffeinated beverages you may experience headaches for a short duration of time. Increasing your water consumption may help with this side effect. Keep up the good work!

  32. Hello Hubbert. It is good that you are ready for this weight-loss journey. Be consistent with SENSA® on everything you eat except liquids. We also promote exercise and good nutrition in order to have success. Best on your journey.
