There’s a big difference between small amount of naturally occurring fructose in whole foods that I recommend. There’s also a big difference between “fear mongering” and educating people who are otherwise spending their hard earned money on overly processed food byproducts that are being peddled ad health. I find lately that using facts and science to evaluate things is labeled as fear mongering. It used to just be called critical thinking.
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.
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.
Very well said Tim Edge. Opinions and even some form of clinical information is fine, but at the end of the day what gives anyone the right to chastise others for choosing to walk a certain path in life? Oh and yes, medical practitioners can support, research, recommend and endorse all they like, that didn’t help the sufferers of thalidomide did it?
It is to bad Dani, for such an educated researcher you pinpointed a couple of ingredients which are in just about everything, and you used that to bash a company you obviously have no idea about…just some website information…there are 11 years of testimonials and scientific evidence backed by Isagenix…you should really further your research on solutions for getting people healthy and teaching them how to stay healthy…nothing is perfect we can only try and work together…if you have not tried something or know anyone who has tried it, how could you talk about it just by reading some information…You are missing out on the best solution in the world…If you really want to know what Isagenix has done for millions over the past 11 years , try it yourself and only then will you become a believer…results and stories do not lie my friend…i love that you are concerned and want to educate people, but make sure you know what you are talking about first…Proud Isagenix user for a long time, a health nut myself and have not found anything close to what this system has done, is doing and will continue to do for people…thank you:)
Thanks for reaching out. There are different stages of the Cellular Healing Diet; the advanced stage is basically the ketogenic diet, wherein may lie the confusion. The basic CHD may include small amounts of sprouted ancient grains, whereas the advanced CHD (the keto diet) includes no grains, but much more good fat and moderate protein. See here for Dr. Pompa’s article on ketosis: Ketosis 1: https://drpompa.com/additional-resources/health-tips/ketogenic-diet
Former Isagenix customer Megan Moulton says that the power of the social media groups and the communities can be the magic bullet for hardcore fans. "You can become a celebrity within the Isagenix community. Social media can make you feel special and affirmed, and the more you post the more important you can feel. Some people really seem to need that."
You never hear of anyone "living" a cleansing lifestyle, yet we all know intuitively that we need to eat healthier. That's what makes juicing so attractive - it's considered a quick fix. We've all been there; sick and tired of being sick and tired and know we need to change our situation, so we try to do the right thing and jump into a juice cleanse because every good diet starts with a cleanse - right?
Many people feel the effects of these various toxins and do not realize what is the actual cause. As I always say, one must discover the root source of the problem, and once this is understood, a person can work to effectively remove many of these toxins from the body with a cellular detox. However, I do not suggest attempting detox on your own, especially if you’re struggling with a health condition that is affecting the quality of your life. To safely and effectively go through the detox process you need a trained practitioner trained who can coach you each step of the way. Many hire coaches to improve their golf or dating game, why not a coach to take your health to the next level? Good health is truly a precious gift, I know all too well.
I also was going to have forgo having my daily coffee for the duration of the 9 days. That part had me a bit nervous because I seriously love my coffee. However, I told myself it was only 9 days and this was a challenge to me and I wasn’t deviating from the plan. You are allowed to drink green tea and herbal tea though. However, I do not like either of them!

Cleanse for Life contains a unique blend of ionic minerals, antioxidants, natural plants, teas, and gentle cleansing herbs that support the body’s functions and immune system. It is third party tested to make sure it has the highest quality and potency. Cleanse for life is available in both liquid and powder form for your convenience.
Anyway I finally tried isAgenix. Wow. In 30 days I did lose the belly I had been trying to lose for years. I also met other isAgenix users. I met one fellow who lost over 100 lbs.! In my humble opinion isAgenix is an excellent product line. I also do a bit of kinesiology and all the isAgenix products appear to be of excellent quality and are very healthy. (for me anyway)
Then I’m told that all modern food has chemicals and it is the liver putting fat around those chemicals that has caused me to gain weight……. and I always thought it was poor diet like eating too much sugary things that did it, a case of more calories in than being burned. Apparently I’m wrong, but there was no explanation forthcoming in reply to my comment that I managed to lose weight by exercising more and watching what I ate, especially cutting right back on sugary foods and sugar, otherwise making no dietary changes. I even managed to wear trousers again that I’d had to stop wearing because I got too big for them.
Is that the conversation where you’re perpetually defending yourself to the critics who are attacking you personally and professionally? Or where you’re basking in the praise of those who agree with you? You’re right, I wasn’t trying to contribute to either of those conversations; I was simply pointing out that had you worded things differently, you could have saved yourself a lot of grief since that’s where it seems a lot of the criticism stems from. It’s called constructive criticism.
I’ve been eating a whole food plant based diet for 3 months – no pre-packaged stuff, no Gluten, no refined sugar, no dairy ( although I do allow myself the odd bit of seafood, as it sits very well with my stomach ) and I’ve never felt better. I’d eat dirt before I ever started eating some “meal-replacement” shake. Meals shouldn’t need to be replaced if you’re preparing them correctly.
Hey not everyone has the ability to exercise (possibly due to any injury). So for some of us Isagenix has been a life-saver. It’s not just about the weight loss. I have never felt better in my life! And by the way, I don’t sell it, I use it for my own personal consumption. And it is gluten free!! I’m sorry everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but that’s just what it is “opinion.” Not everything is going to work for everyone, but that’s what makes the world go round! People need to make their own decisions based on their own personal needs. For me, Isagenix in conjunction with super clean eating has been the answer.
