Shakes, fads, and quick fixes are temporary fixes to a bigger issue in my opinion. Yeah, I can detox, drink shakes and a few healthy meals a day but am I willing to do that for the rest of my life so I can lose weight? Hell no. I’ll stick to eating 6 times a day, eating my dozen egg whites and veggies, chicken and tilapia. I’d rather invest my money in real food. 

I think that we can all be driven crazy by paying too close attention to material details. There are thousands of issues worldwide which are effecting all our health. I know many many doctors and scientists that swear warfare radiation is going to kill us all, wireless technology is killing us all, that manufacturing particles that fill the air is killing us, that HAARP is killing us, and those are all massive environment factors which we can hardly dream of controlling. Yes we should be informed, yes we should eat ABSOLUTELY as close to our own vegetables, from our own garden AS WE POSSIBLY CAN, yes we should be halting the monoculture and commercially grown system which is poisoning so much, yes we need to monitor what we put into our bodies, BUT…We must become aware of that which has the greatest effect, the most detriment AND which is least attended to – That is the power of our thoughts and minds, and how they effect our health and others. This is a sacred power and it can more deeply influence our lives then you may know. I don’t just mean thoughts influencing water, happiness reducing illness or Qi creating incredible physical and mental abilities (all demonstrated by people I personally know)…But beyond that, there are forces which are utilized by the mind which are part of creation and cause people to be ill, that cause the best intentioned people to die and that create wellness in others which seems unbelievable (the chronic drinkers and emotionally terrible people etc.).

Wow, I came on here to research the product as a friend was doing a hard sell on me. She has lost about 10 kg. ( good on her I say ) But from what I have learnt from Isagenix supporters is you’re all a bunch of Nutters ! If you have any faith in your product then you should not be threatened by a review. But listening to you all, then listening to Dani’s replies, I would have have to trust her opinion in a heart beat. It also seems most of you are believing what you have been told by the company and have not done any independent reasearch yourself. ( And by independent I mean not from the lsagenix website ). So before I get sucked into this cult like diet culture, I am saying NO ! And BTW you are not doing yourself or the company any favours by defending it in this “obsessed like nature”. I’m of to make a banana smoothie ! Thanks Dani if anything you helped me stear clear of this product as the peolpe are ” A Special kind of Special”
Wow! This is great! I was approached by someone during the week – trying to get me to rep this product for them, because I “have good energy” I knew nothing of it, and assumed it was something far natural and sincere. So I sit down to find myself watching the most ridiculous video ever, of all these weird cult like people, claiming that they no longer work but make MONEY MONEY MONEY.! This is so far removed from what I think a healthy person (body and soul) should be like. It appears just another brainwashing scheme, spend money to find health and happiness. There are many more ways than this stupid company! Sure people do this and lose weight, good for them, but I agree that there are many other HEALTHIER ways to do so. You don’t need to buy packaged, manufactured crap. People need to wake up. Spend time, not money on yourself. Way to go Dani! Loved the read, and will follow your blog now too! All the best to you. 🙂
Dani doesn’t need credentials to read a label Leisa and if you weren’t so brainwashed by the whole “we’re a family that want to be free and healthy and live life crap” then you would realise this too. Recently my girlfriend who works as a physiotherapist at a top clinic in Melbourne and knows a fair bit about Nutrition was pushed samples of these products by one of probably 10,000 ‘unique’ sellers in Australia . She mentioned she had fructose intolerance as diagnosed through thorough testing and the seller said “oh you’ll be fine there’s no fructose in these” she didn’t even know what was in her own products. Stop being little passengers in a world where you can create your own path and get some thoughts of your own Leisha and crew. Its a shit product on the same lines as progenex and herbalife. 

I went through the entire thread up to 2016. Woh… I admire your knowledge, passion, integrity, honest, strength, commitment and courage especially when you received a daily barrage of hate mails for your reviews on Isagenix during that certain period. I love your spirit and determination. Yes, I do agree that some individuals have used you to drive more traffic to their sites but it may not necessary worked in their favor.

As a doctor practitioner who has invested long hours of study into nutrition and lifestyle, as well as current therapies, to help my chronically ill or compromised patients, I have watched the effects of Isagenics on many patients and close friends. In many, I see weight loss and an increase in confidence that they have control over their body, but in the majority of those cases it is just an acceptable form of Bulimia (which also gives the sufferer a sense of control). For many, the ‘cleanse’ is a socially acceptable form of purging, for others it is a way of stopping twice at the next stop sign, because you just ran through the first. What hurts me is to watch many of these ‘devotees’ trim fat, but also dramatically increase wrinkles, along with increasing body and emotional reactivity. It is very difficult to help some of them get their lives back on track, just as it was difficult, years ago, to help those who got deeply into cults. For a many, it starts as a healthier path than they were on, but instead of encouraging them to continue to the next healthier level, the culties try to keep them from leaving the fold. Certainly, there are many ingredients that are natural, superfood, or have some recent hype about a unique property, but they are not applied in an individualized manner, but more as a marketing ploy, and to help the ‘converts’ feel that their company is up on the latest so that they don’t get tempted to stray over to other products. We are regularly getting patients ‘off of’ supplements that are known to have beneficial properties, but are not currently appropriate for them. Lastly, I am concerned about the interdependence that the company fosters for the sake of profit, in the name of helping each other. How easily can an Isagenics member leave the fold to pursue the next higher level of physical, emotional, and spiritual health? Does the company encourage you to use their products to help you get out of the fast food rut, but then to graduate on to higher health with real food, no-strings-attached relationships, and selfless service? What is the company’s real mission? It is the image of that mission that you will find imprinted into the product you consume. I can feel the difference in our patients. Naturally grown, harvested, and consumed real food carries a different signature than corporate products.
Ive read most of these comments. I’d like to add that this is America and everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, there should be more of a modicum of respect for the blogger. Dani has a job. If you don’t agree, at least be respectful in your responses. This country has gone downhill in values and morals. But on to the reason for my post: Isagenix does have certain components with whey, gluten, etc. But there are other components of the cleanse that are extremely natural with nothing added. I am NOT affiliated in any way with the product. I am doing research based on what a friend has recommended. I was just diagnosed as prediabetic and have to make some serious changes. So, for all of you, go tohttp://www.isagenix.com/~/media/product-misc/nutrition-and-supplemental-facts/anz-en-nutrition-and-supplemental-facts.pdf and read for yourself. A) Dani was right and B) others are right as well. It’s a win win. SO, in the end, don’t let someone else make the decision for you and definitely know that it’s not worth the horrible words used in these comments.
“After speaking with him, I gathered that Dr. Lustig and Dr. Sievenpieper actually do tend to agree more than disagree on the data. For example, Dr. Lustig told me that he understood full well that the animal data and ecological analyses shouldn’t be used for arguing his position that fructose is a unique metabolic danger. He also agreed that answers needed to come from randomized controlled feeding trials in humans, which is really what Dr. Sievenpiper’s research has been about.
This easy a.m. ritual works on two levels. First, a recent study found that exposure to UV rays, even on a cloudy day, between the hours of 8 am and noon reduces your risk of weight gain regardless of activity level, caloric intake, or age. Researchers speculate that the morning light synchronizes your metabolism and undercuts your fat genes. And burning calories before you eat means you’re exercising in a fasted state—the energy you burn comes right from your fat stores instead of the glucose still in your system. According to some studies, exercising in a fasted state can burn almost 20 percent more fat compared to exercising with fuel in the tank.
If my students wrote a review like this they would get an F. The ingredients may come from Isagenix but your “facts” are not supported and are conflicting. Despite saying the use genetically modified ingredients you later state that you “doubt” that the products are non-GMO. That alone brings all other statements into question. You should back up your statements of the “toxic ingredients” with references, or are they specifically your opinion? Finally, you have neglected to reference your education/expertise.
I realize that I must sound like an infomercial: “I have a magical bean that will make all your problems go away!”. Here is a kicker though, it is NOT an easy week. This weight loss cleanse can take a toll on anyone, so read the instructions carefully and prepare accordingly. Get rid of all junk food in the house, grab groceries for the week, prepare you meals… And figure out what to do on the weekend, so that it won’t ruin your progress. 

This is the type of sensationalistic, fear-mongering that we need to be careful of. As someone in a leadership role (ie. people trust you for information), you need to understand how people react to that information. When you use language like, “It is toxic to the liver, raises triglycerides…”, it doesn’t matter what follows, people just remember that it is toxic to your liver.
I have read all of the essays put out by Isagenix because someone close to me is involved with the company. I have written to its higher-level employees with questions and received replies. I have watched their videos, listened to their podcasts. My conclusion is that the folks who control this company are dishonest and so are their stated scientists. I do not believe that their products, if consumed on a short-term basis for the purpose of either losing weight or kick-starting one’s diet to a more disciplined daily regimen, place the consumer at any real risk. And I’m not sure if the Isagenix products place anyone at risk who eats a meal per day of real (actual) food. What is pathetic and sad about this company is the the untested claims it makes to sell its product. When I say “untested,” I mean not tested by an independent third party. Isagenix, and only Isagenix, says it tests its products (“really we do, I swear,” to quote a recent podcast narrated by an Isagenix “pro”). The company operates within the law — just.
Dani I love the logic and common sense you bring to the table. I said earlier I’m am a Isa distributor and I’ve received tremendous results from the products. I also have a chronic disease and my Naturopathic doctor told me point blank to get off some of the Isagenix products. I see what you’re saying Dani and I’ve also had tremendous results with the products. I’ll research the ingredients on my own later but for now Dani I’m asking you do all the Isa products contain these ingredients you mention? This might sound kinda lame but no one is perfect. Isa has helped 1000s of people change their lives. That is a fact. Are all the ingredients the best? Apparently not but all I can say is I take what I can take and once again I experience tremendous results. Thanks again Dani for your work.
8. The product is unsustainable because of its cost. I know, I know, “you will save more than you spend in the long run because of what you don’t buy at the store.” Not true for me, and many others, who’ve learned to eat within a budget of less than 300 dollars a month per person. I spend 400 dollars a month on 5!!, that’s right, 5 people. Generally speaking, my family is healthy. All our tests, etc., come back scott free of problems. So, basically what I’m getting at is that I spend about 80 bucks per person per month. Now, I’m spending 300 (305.76 to be exact) a month on me, and 80 dollars for everyone else. That’s $620 a month! Many might be able to sustain that, but I’m poor! I can’t afford it. (And yes, I literally qualify in the poor range of yearly income.)

I was connected to several people on FB that sell this product. They are all claiming the same ‘wealth’ that Isagenix has brought them. One girl claims she has purchased several expensive sports cars, fly’s in a private jet and has an expensive home (posting pictures to prove it). She also claims to be one of the top selling reps, yet her name is nowhere on the Isagenix website. Her pictures appear on other peoples pages as well. Her profile picture has changed from an older blonde woman to a young brunette. Sounds like a fraud to me. This is why I’ve started looking into this product. How can you trust it?

One of the top sales person for Isagenix had his wife on it for 5 years and she did not lose any weight. She had a stomach operation to help her lose weight. Now at all of the Isegenixs conferences and shows they have people taking pictures and posting them on facebook on how they both lost weight from Isagenix. This is a false impression that the sales people under them get.

Breakfast time! You’re about to feel a whole lot better with the push of a button—the blender button. Throw a large ripe banana (peeled and then frozen are best!), some non-dairy milk and a scoop of your favorite protein powder in a blender and flip the switch, baby. Bananas are one of best natural sources of vitamin B6, which a study printed in the Journal Annals of Nutrition showed can reduce hangover symptoms by as much as 50 percent! They’re also brimming with potassium, a mineral lost by frequent urination when you drink.
Are you feeling sluggish throughout the day? Do you lack the energy you had only a few years ago? If so, a Dr. G’s 5-Day Cleanse Kit can hit the reset button on your body and help you regain the pep in your step. If you’re curious what Dr. G’s 5-Day Cleanse Kit can do for you, call to make an appointment. Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness has locations throughout Florida, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, as well as two international offices.
In fact, stop eating at 7 pm, if possible. By ending your eating by 7 pm, you’ll set yourself up to begin burning fat first thing in the morning. Not just burning calories—burning fat. As you go through the Zero Belly Cleanse, you’ll experience a sense of control over your diet, your body and your health. One of the reasons so many cultures impose periods of cleansing on their people is that it helps to bring a sense of order to life.

Debate provides a platform informed choice – in the spirit of increased knowledge and insight – thank you for this blog. We are all doing the best we can – for our bodies for our future 🙂 This program works for me – I am not an evangelist – as it may not be for you – but it just might be a better option than what people choose now – with obesity as an epidemic – I would suggest its the mainstream consumption habits of the western world that require a sprinkling of this education contained within this blog.
