I follow Vani the food babe and she has a wealth of information on this, too. There’s a reason she was able to get fast food companies (chik fil a for ex) to agree to switch to certified organic chicken in the near future. It all comes down to awareness…you cannot trust a company backing their product, nor can you trust the FDA. It’s the sad truth!
I read your blog and I agree with you on a lot of what you stated. However, sometimes to prove your point it seems that you leave out info from both sides of the argument. For example, I am allergic to onions, uncooked onions!! Crazy I know but I won’t go around telling people that they should not eat it and that all of it is bad all of the time for everyone. Gluten has been around forever even before the environment became so polluted. If you study history and archaeology research shows that people who were suffering from simple allergies were mistreated or misdiagnosed; which ultimately lead to premature deaths.
thanks so much for your article about isagenix products. My husband has been using them since Nov. last year and just last week I decided it was about time to CUT IT OFF!. He has lost a lot of weight and his IBS got much better, but I think it was because he finally started eating a more cleaner diet and giving up things like, coffee, cold cereal in the morning, etc…
Im away from home for 13 hours a day with work (on an island which I have to catch a ferry to and from), I have a dog who deserves some of my time daily, like to keep a clean house, have clean clothes every day, get some exercise daily if I can, and I don’t have a wife to cook for me like most of my work mates do. So far with the cleanse, I initially dropped 4kg and 3 belt sizes, (1st time under 110kg in 10 years), am sleeping better, given up coffee, thinking clearer, no more inflammation in my joints, and I now have the energy to: work out more often (I’ve put 1kg of lean muscle back on bringing weight loss back down to 3kg), give my dog more exercise, and most importantly, I now have the energy and the drive to plan my main meal for the day with the absolute focus on the very REAL and natural nutrition you imply from organic produce. I’ve known about good nutrition at least at a basic to intermediate level for some time because I care about my health and I realise that only I am the authority with which my life and health depend. Intimately. But that doesn’t mean that I am immune from the pressures of life, long hours at work, bills to pay, adventures to plan and pay for, etc. I am human. And so we all are. All so very different in our experiences and subsequent characters, yet so very much the same in our inherent nature.
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.
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.
