Sensa Diet Week 5

How is it that you can go off the rails with the easiest diet in the world?  That’s a really good question and I wish I had the answer.

Actually I do have the answer.  I keep forgetting to sprinkle.  And it’s because I made a fatal mistake when buying “month two” on Amazon.  As you may recall the idea behind Sensa is you change each month, this is to stop you getting used to the taste and your body being accustomed to it–in other words you’re supposed to keep losing weight.

I accidentally bought the “on-the-go” packets instead of the shakers (well I was pretty sure it wasn’t an accident but clearly in hindsight it was).  You see there are “handy” “on-the-go” satchels that you take out but they’re not–they’re a pain in the backside (you know I’ve become localised because I didn’t say arse).  It is so much easier to bring the sprinkle container with you and sprinkle on everything you eat rather than opening a little packet and getting it everywhere.  Worse still they’re little so you can’t find it in your bag.

That pic is a little useless actually because it only shows how I could order the wrong thing not actually what the little packs are like but if you imagine a small sugar pack then you’re on the right track.

So my advice to you is don’t buy the little packets, sprinkle on everything and the world will be a better place.  (And you’ll be miraculously skinny).  I’ve hopped back onto Amazon bought what I should have bought in the first place and we’ll proceed as normal.

I also tried to contact the people at Sensa and let them know I was blogging my progress.  Unfortunately they only replied about where to buy their product (they recommend their website which is more expensive than on Amazon) and ignored the bit about my blog.  So I’ll have to continue un-sponsored.

Anyway here I am this week, not much of a change from last week I don’t think.  Let’s hope next week sees me back on track.

Looking for a number?  I’ve put on a kilo. Ouch!  (I do think it can be put down to that time of the month rather than real weight gain so let’s see how we go next week.)

      Bugger, sorry to hear that. Perhaps we should see if they’d like to start distributing it in Australia and make a small fortune?! Seriously though it’s not very PC of me to condone this rather than eating healthily an in moderation. Good luck getting it there.
