Sensa Sprinkle Diet

While searching for a few good web sites, I found this article from Calorie Count @about.com:

Fad or Real Deal? The Sensa Sprinkle Diet

All for $60 a month?

Sensa contains natural and artificial flavors in a base of maltodextrin (derived from corn), tricalcium phosphate, silica, FD&C Yellow 5, carmine, and milk and soy derivatives.

If it’s so good, then why do they have to use artificial flavors and colors? Yuck! Wow! I am all for trying new things, and this might very well work for some, but if it compromises your health with chemicals and other un-natural additives then I got to say NO!

The exact combination of the Sensa blends are proprietary and patent-pending. However, no flavors are derived from meat sources and there is no mushroom, nutmeg, cinnamon, fish or garlic. Some flavors may contain milk and soy derived ingredients

Blah blah blah. How can they get away with this? Doesn’t the FDA mandate that all ingredients should be labeled, etc. Hmmph.

As a food product, FDA approval is not required for Sensa. All of Sensa’s ingredients are on the FDA designation list of GRAS — Generally Recognized as Safe.

Yeah, and we all know how “safe” the FDA GRAS list is.

Nope, not for me! I would rather be fat!

Healthy Choices

A good friend posted something on her Facebook page this week, and it hit home.

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it’s me. Life is AWESOME. CHANGE for the Better!

I have been wanting to start to eat and live healthier for so long. I start, then immediately fail! I want this time to be different. I am almost 47 years old, and although I am medically healthy, I know I am not at a good weight! Things have got to change for the better!

Thanks Mae for helping me see the light again!
