She said that the program has helped her with portion control by reigning in her appetite. She said she cannot handle the deprivation of a diet, but appreciated the empowerment that she said she gets from Sensa.

The View: Mario Cantone Oscar Picks
Since the countdown to Oscar Sunday is wrapping up, Mario Cantone visited The View to make his own Oscar predictions before the big weekend. Mario said that Rihanna was snubbed for her supporting performance in Battleship.
Now that Hollywood is making movies based on board games, Mario said he should star opposite Chris Christie in a movie version of Hungry Hungry Hippos. Mario said that his best actor picks were Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin in Rock of Ages.
For best actress, he voted for Cher in This Must Be The Place, even though the role in question was played by Sean Penn. For best actor, Mario suggested Brad Pitt’s hilarious Chanel No. 5 commercial. Finally, his best picture choice was Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, which is certainly an unconventional choice.
