A Saturday Morning Hike


Posted on March 10th, 2012 by Matt Schoeneberger

I had originally planned to head to a bodybuilding show this morning to support my friend Ryan’s client. The morning show is less expensive than at night, only $15, but once I got up and out of bed I felt motivated to do something more productive with my day. Sorry Ryan’s client, I still hope you do well.

SENSA Weight-Loss System Review


Posted on March 7th, 2012 by Matt Schoeneberger

We’ve had a post in the queue for quite some time about SENSA, the stuff that’s supposed to help you eat less if you sprinkle it on your food. Last week or so, a reader asked about SENSA in the comments section of another post. While doing some digging this morning, I found this review of SENSA by Fed Up Female. It’s a video post (turn your volume down, it’s a loud one) with text references beneath it and she does a pretty good job reviewing the basics and revealing some of the business side of SENSA. I had planned on digging into it’s inventor, Dr. Hirsch’s previous peer-reviewed studies more than Fed Up Female does, but after watching the rest of her review I don’t feel it’s necessary. Why waste precious time on a bunk product?

Nice job Fed Up Female!
