I’m not sure what you mean by “strict paleo” and I’m not sure how long (or short) you were eating this way. Paleo is about eating unprocessed, organic, local and sustainable food that is tailored to your own personal needs. So in short, I honestly do not believe your testimonial, or that you were properly tailoring a healthy diet to your individual needs.

Each day, we’re surrounded by numerous pollutants in our environment. Whether it is the food that we consume (most of which contains genetically-modified organisms), the water that we drink, or even the things that we touch, we’re sure to be contaminated somehow. This can be pretty harmful and it can take a huge toll on our bodies; especially internally. With Nutritional Cleansing, you can cure these interior pollutions by purifying the body and removing those unwanted toxins that we’re exposed to so often. What’s great about Nutritional Cleansing is that it’s a win-win: it gives your body the opportunity to rejuvenate and regenerate while also nourishing your body with nutritional products, thus helping your long-term health and wellness to prosper.
Tracy, why aren’t you calling out the real scams like vaccines, GMOS, chemo, etc that the rest of the world isn’t buying into? If science is so great why is autism, chronic disease, cancer on the rise? Oh that’s right… How would you get paid? You really think you are fooling anyone? You are just a shill, in your terms, for the real scams… The difference with Isagenix is if I don’t like it I can stop, I don’t have a choice to eliminate the attack on me when my water is fluoridated, or there is GMO’s in that supposed organic food or there are pesticides engineered into the food that doesn’t wash off… Your lack of common sense is stunning… It is next to impossible to eat healthy in America even if you wash your produce you moron!

For those of us who are open minded and have been through the ropes on the MLM world, and are willing to do the research it takes to understand how health is achieved, you don’t need to state your credentials. Irregardless of them, you are stating your opinion based on the ingredients listed on the label. So don’t you worry about telling me who you are.
Here is an example of what I have read in these feeds: As much as I would like to MAKE AN UNEDUCATED GUESS that the deniers are probably democrats or don’t vote, I have absolutely no data to support my crazy statement and could have also made an assumption based on the personal filter/belief that all or most democrats never or can’t back their decisions with facts. Presenting facts to support a concept or product is not an action influenced by a group you belong to. Presenting unbiased facts is honest research. Everyone should be supportive of honest research. Rather than getting upset, use your energy to seriously find research to support what you beleive. Dani has done so and continues to address ethically those who disagree with her. This entire feed is so educational and entertaining on many levels. Amazing how so many people resort to name calling when they interpret something as offensive. I am sharing this sight with my daughter and students to learn how to debate and how not to debate, good and bad research, the balanced and unbalanced person, Gorilla Marketing, and the list goes on! Keep this feed alive!
No one is asking about science based research. Dani is correct in everything she has said and my only critique would be to further back her current research by utilizing and citing additional sources backed by evidence based research. The critics on this site offer no back up of their opinions with anything more than what they have obviously bought into after some type of indoctrination into this program. As a RN and public health professional there is simply no research that supports this type of program as being ” good” for you. Any extreme reduction in calories, fasting, and eliminating real food will get you results if yyou’re looking to lose weight, however, over the long term because of the lack if research we really don’t know what type if long term effects this type of regimen may have on the body. The key here is to fully research not just the program but the ingredients and the claims any type of program makes. If you know a medical professional that you trust utilize their professional opinions. Lastly the mist credible information will be found in peer reviewed journals and publications. Be fully informed!!!!!!! One last thing…when you say that the protein is Ftom “grass fed cows grazing in the pristine lands in New Zealand” exactly HOW do you know this? Seriously. How in the world could you even verify this? HOW is that protein turned into the protein you consume in your shake? I’m sure that the process is not as “pristine” as you might think.

Corn is high in phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors. It is extremely irritating to the gut lining. The phytic acid in corn also binds to minerals like iron, magnsium, zinc, etc. and prevents them from being absorbed. This is true of all grains. This is why traditional cultures soaked and sprouted their grains, to reduce the phytic acid content. The bran is the worst part.
To use myself as an example, in a period of four months at age 21, I lost 18kgs and had my body to less than 4% body fat, when eating McDonalds at least twice daily, while training intensely for Senior football. This is why I laugh so much, as am I to assume that consumption of McDonalds leads to weight loss and health? Absolutely not. I could leave it at that, but what I failed to mention is that my lack of a nutritional diet led me to become seriously ill and bed ridden for over two months which nearly cost me my life. True story. For $50 a person could exercise regulary and have a diet consisting of vitamin supplements and water which would result in immense weight loss, but it is not a legitimate healthy option either, and would almost definitely leave you seriously ill as well.

Fats often get a bad rap. Although there are some types of fat you want to avoid or consume sparingly, such as trans fats, our bodies do require fat for survival. Fats are necessary for providing an important cushion around organs, they are essential for building hormones and cell membranes, and they supply the body with an efficient source of energy. In addition, fats assist in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins K, E, A, and D). For these reasons, it’s important to have a healthy amount of fat with every meal.

– Dr. John Anderson – Dr. Anderson made extensive plant tissue studies in organic soil. He discovered ionic minerals. In 1980, he translated his knowledge to the nutritional field. He has worked as a private-label supplement manufacturer and formulator for more than 600 companies, including GNC, Nature’s Sunshine, MetRx; creating more than 2,300 nutritional and weight loss products. His products are internationally recognized.
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.

I like to believe the “thinking” person prefers to make informed choices and decisions about what they put into their bodies, or not. So, I can’t comment on the reasons for the choices people make though I do question the validity and reliability of those reasons from a researcher’s perspective. I can share why I found Isagenix appealing (quick easy fix) and equally unappealing. I’m an early adopter of many things, however, when no (proven) independent clinical studies exist to support something, I tend to smell a rat. I know there is anecdotal evidence and millions of photos to support Isagenix. That’s called the perfect marketing strategy.


The problem with programs like these is that people compare where they are in January to where they are in March/April of the same year. If you truly want to see how effective these programs are, compare yourself from December of 1 year to December of next. I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t want to enter holiday season next year with a bigger appetite and lower metabolism.
Just to try it, my wife and I started using the diet about a month and a half ago. I’m an IT guy, and my wife is a nurse. We are very busy and love that it’s a quick and easy meal in the mornings and lunch. During this last month or so I’ve lost 30lbs. I eat way less sugar and now I eat way less foods. I’m never hungry and I feel great. The cleanse days were rough at first, but now they’re fine. I don’t sell, and I’m not some advertisement person. Just a guy that is happy to share my success.
Iasgenix!? If it were truly a revolutionary product that everyone could benefit from, then why MLM? Why have Isa Kids!? Children need to cleanse? WOW. That shows you right there what they are about…$$$. I have no stake in this game, just stumbled across the blog. I have friends on Isagenix. I dont get it? Starving themselves to be healthier? Cleansing? What happened to calories in calories out? Exercise? Site this, site that, but really ..come on pleople..it seems simple to me…eat food, real food, veggies, fruit, meat, not too much and exercise. I really hope no else asks me to meet for coffee because “they have something they want to discuss with me!” And no child should be cleaning! HOLY CRAP! LOL
I think most people would agree that whole, from nature, in season, organic, etc etc foods are always best. But unfortunately eating that way 100% of the time is not always realistic for many people (time, money, fitness goals, etc). I use a variety of shakes for that reason, not because I think they have magical powers or are better than whole foods. If I had all the time and money in the world there are certainly ways I would eat different, but for now I just have to do the best with the resources available and what works for me. In the Herbalife post, comparing to anorexia is a low blow.. especially to people who have struggled with it! JMO
Just because scientists and doctors research and back a product, does this make that product safe for consumption? How does business effect their input and work on synthesizing and endorsing certain ingredients? Do you think it’s possible they could be PAID to create a COST EFFECTIVE product which may APPEAR to be healthy to the lay man? How does a magician perform a “trick?” It is likely they are “tricking” the audience into believing the “magic” they perform is real. The fact that it is a TRICK, as in not a real magical event, does not make the field any less marketable and profitable. Here is a great little read about a product likely created by scientists, and quite possibly endorsed by doctors at some point:
I think you know that you will never convince the “true believers” of Isagenix that their product is seriously flawed with regard to real healthy nutrition value. As you can imagine in my 30+ years of practice in nutritional and functional medicine I have literally been approached hundreds of times with the newest, greatest, promise to cure all the ills of the world products both MLM and from nutrition companies. I always ask 3 questions of the promoters of any nutrition product:

Bottom line if you want something to happen for yourself you can do it, you can make it work without all these products. Eat clean, exercise, include a good protein shake from vitamin shop, add a vitamin or two and be determined to exercise with a good program. Have a plan, be a leader don’t have someone feed you like a baby. Don’t forget come up with a meal plan. Do your own research and save big bucks by keeping money in your pocket and not these huge multi marketing companies who want nothing more then your wallet.


I love what you have written, it’s wonderful but it’s a shame that you advertised your own program on there, it just gives them a reason to say you are only putting down isagenix to sell your own product. Drives me nuts the shit they carry on with and I know your products are the best way to get healthy but they will use anything to support their argument!
The SHRED Power Cleanse If you have two weeks to commit, this program by Dr. Ian a great one to consider. Why? Because it's filled with whole, nutritious, fiber-rich foods, a common sense approach to eating and an exercise program that is based on smart science. It is not designed to be a weight loss program, but you're likely to lose weight while you're on it. And during the program, you learn healthy lifestyle habits (like planning ahead and journaling) that you can use for long-term weight loss and weight maintenance. 
Part of why many of us choose to involve ourselves with Isagenix is because of who we were. I don’t think schools should have vending machines. I don’t think companies such as McDonalds and Coca-Cola should be allowed to sponsor sporting events. I admire companies that don’t cut corners in the name of bottom line profits but most of all, I think people deserve to have facts when making decisions…especially regarding their health.
A colleague was telling me about the product who has lost quite a bit of weight. She says she feels amazing… How could I not want to know more? But, I am cynical by nature and wanted to know more. I guess the things I was wondering were; if this product is so great, why is it only available via MLM methods? Wouldn’t it be available everywhere for everyone, rather than kept quiet? Something just didn’t add up, and I wonder if in fact the colleague is being conned? The more I look, the less I like what I see, almost like a pack mentality from the people involved?
But when I consciously choose to travel to far away countries, be accepted by the indigenous people and accept them in return, who hold ancient knowledge and wisdom for the future betterment and evolution of our species, do service to a community, to be part of a combined and soul felt movement for love, understanding, acceptance and peace, then I am SOMEBODY.
To be sure of bioavailability and potency, Isagenix provides ingredients either present in natural form or derived from natural food sources. We do not use any artificial or synthetic ingredients. In addition, Isagenix provides vitamins that are consistently tested for stability, purity, safety and efficacy. Each vitamin is evaluated using United States Pharmacopoeia standards or higher. They are sourced only from highly reputable suppliers with an excellent track record of meeting and exceeding cGMP guidelines.
Scott…..so are you trying to say that our livers are not cleaning out the toxins in our bodies anymore?? Seriuosly? Instead of just telling us your analogies, why don’t you give us scientific proof that the liver doesn’t clean out our toxins like it did 100 years ago!! That is the most crazy thing I’ve heard in a long time. Our livers work great, especially eating healthy foods. Not eating anything and then drinking some magic shake doesn’t make your liver work better! Comparing our bodies to taking the trash only to the garage is laughable. And I’m sure you are laughing all the way to the bank!!! That is if you have made it that far up the pyramid!! If not just keep spilling the nonsense to gullible people and you MIGHT just make it!!

If I knew nothing more about Isagenix than that its proponents are exceedingly defensive, it would be sufficient basis for rejecting the product. However based on your common-sense analysis (I did not need to check your credentials) I know way more than I need to know. Indeed, the most damning evidence you presented was simply the ingredients lists! I remember Michael Pollan writing, if it has more than five ingredients, don’t eat it.
Once I stopped, I put on some weight, then more, then even more than before I started. I was gaining weight in places that I never did before. I prided myself on my great metabolism. Not anymore. I can’t lose weight no matter how much I exercise (which was the way I could lose weight in the past). Isagenix destroyed my metabolism and I still have not been able to repair it.
The bottom line is that a cleanse might seem innocent enough for speedy weight loss, but it can have serious consequences for your health and metabolism, especially if you have any medical conditions. If you’re really interested in trying a cleanse, get your doctor’s go-ahead and guidance, so you can reap the benefits of fruits and vegetables without putting your health at risk.

So how do you explain the rise in autism, cancer, diabetes, chronic illness in America? Why not put you forensic skills to work investigating this issue? And these all started to increase right around the same time as the introduction of GMOS, increased vaccination, antibiotic farming, pesticide laden farming, etc… And great I won’t attack you but you are the one who is attacking anyone here who has had a positive experience with Isagenix, because they must be a shill…thats what you called me…that’s not an attack? And interesting that when I tried to reply with my previous email I could not but when I changed it I could…
Wow. I was going to meet with one of the sales reps for this product until I read through this site and many others. So here’s my take: it’s probably not for me. I lead a relatively healthy lifestyle and try to eat organic when I can…but I am also very busy and dont always drive 45 mins to the farmers market or make my own protein shakes with raw eggs. 

Thanks for all of the comments. Yes, I too, firmly believe that Isagenix is a complete and total scam. Its marketing scam works because management convinces their sales agents that they are saving the world – yeah by selling expensive highly processed nutritional products (I don’t even want to use the word food) using questionable means and unscientific and undocumented claims.
Toss the remaining candycanes and enjoy a zero-calorie peppermint-scented candle instead. The essential oil found in mint leaves has analgesic properties that studies show serve as a muscle-relaxant and natural remedy for headaches. Relax into your recovery by lighting a minty candle or sniffing some peppermint oil; you may actually get the added benefit of losing a bit of the weight. One study published in the Journal of Neurological and Orthopaedic Medicine found that people who sniffed peppermint every two hours lost an average of 5 pounds a month! Let a minty candle burn for a couple hours before you go to bed (blow it out before bedtime, though). And to lose even more weight, don’t miss these 42 Ways to Lose 5 Inches of Belly Fat.
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.

So happy to see people finally hearing the truth about these products. I have been with Isagenix for 13 years and am tired of the scam being run on customers. The products are no better than typical vitamins that can be bought at Target or Walmart. Further, the claims of financial freedom are completely overblown. Almost no one makes money in Isagenix!
I was recently sent this article/blog/discussion by a patient. I get hundreds of “Dr. Google” articles sent to me to evaluate and frankly, I evaluate products and supplement/diet systems for a living from a physician’s and nutrition and medicine perspective. Old companies (GNC, Vitamin Shoppe/ Hebalife/Shaklee/4Life/Usana/Nuskin, etc) and new companies/products (IDLife/SilverWolf, etc) and all the “new and improved products” each produce. They all have commonalities: Most products are not new, just recombined and renamed. No one can distinguish the sourcing of ingredients just by reading the label, and it is very difficult for the consumer, let alone the self described online blogger experts to distinguish and evaluate the science and science officers of each company and product.

On shake days, you’ll use IsaLean meal replacement shakes for two meals a day, and then eat a third meal of around 500 calories, which you make yourself. Shakes are between 240 and 280 calories, approximately half of what I’d call an actual meal. If you get hungry, which you most likely will, you can treat yourself with an Isagenix snack like 100-calorie Slim Cakes, which look like little turds. Doesn’t that sound like fun? Yum yum!
Hi! Very interesting blog post and comments section. I was given Isagenix by my sister and am currently on Day 4 of a 2 week “cleanse”. Prior to her giving it to me, I told her that I was wary of the product because I could not find any research supporting Isagenix that was not influenced or purchased by the company itself. That’s odd, especially for such a large company with so many supporters and testimonies. Despite my hesitation, I agreed to try it. I am obese and have been having trouble with sleep apnea, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. My typical weekly diet included regular doses of fast food, pizza and at least 2 liters of fit soda per day. Frankly, I believe that Isagenix DOES contain things that are unhealthy. However, it is likely that they are less unhealthy than the disgusting things I was already consuming everyday. My plan is not to use Isagenix for life. I can see why people do, though. It’s a matter of convenience (and for some, a matter of pride). I am using this period to move from being completely unhealthy to embracing real foods again. There’s something about two shakes a day and a 48 hour no-solid-food period that just makes you appreciate something simple and natural like a sweet potato. (Please please please don’t tell me sweet potatoes are bad for me. I just fell in love with them.) I fully intend to return to a life of real food, which I believe does have everything we need to be healthy and thrive. I just needed a way to “reset”, to start the change I know my life needs.
This may be one of the stupidest comments I’ve ever heard regarding the anorexia comment. I’m a physician of 18 years. I’ve been using this product in my practice for the past 3 years and have seen some amazing, Life changing results!! People who have lost over 100 pounds, people who are off ALL meds, people who no longer have type 2 Diabetes. You can break down most ingredients and find “something ” that’s conflicting. However, look at the big picture. Millions of people are getting healthy!!
Actually, they are. I definitely see your point and agree with you, but would expand it to say we are designed for natural foods like fruits and vegetables and animal products. Every culture in history has thrived on animal products, so much so that there has never, even been a culture that has only eaten fruits and veggies. Whey has been used for thousands of years, just not in protein powder form. That’s why I recommend this specific whey, it’s grass-fed and has undergone minimal processing.
I cannot thank you enough for ALL of this. You are a hero in my eyes. I have been training my five children how to eat an organic, non-gmo, real, whole food diet (gluten free) and will be sharing this info with them as we are being bombarded at church (yes, church) and school by isagenix sellers. Real food and healthy moderate exercise are the key. xo
I found myself about 25 days ago, being faced with the choice of trying Isagenix. I looked into it. I did some research. I was discerning. And given that those who introduced me to it were close family and I had been watching their results closely and was actually impressed, I decided to give it a go. But lets be clear about something: I owned that decision completely. It was not sold, because I will not be sold to. Now, 20 days in, so many of my hopes and dreams are back in gear and the adventures I’ve been hoping and praying to be part of are within my conscious control. Isagenix didn’t do that. I did. I saw Isagenix as a tool and I realised that my application of that tool would be paramount to the success or failure of the venture. Sure, I understand and appreciate that some of the ingredients are suspect. But so is the fluoride added to water supplies that is still mandatory in most provinces and states of New Zealand and Australia where I’ve spent the majority of my 39 years. And we know what that stuff does to our pineal gland… right? And what the pineal gland does for us and how important latest neurological studies are suggesting it is to our overall experience as “living systems?” I really hope thats a bandwagon those of you with “credentials” are on. I don’t mean that disrespectfully, I sincerely mean that.
Also, you mention Monsanto in your article and their statement that GMO’s are healthy. But there is nothing stating that behind their business finances are investors who profit from the use and sale of genetically engineered food. In fact, they actually spent millions opposing a bill that would require the mandatory labeling of GMO’s on food products. Is that not also biased? Their own scientists “who make claims” warned Monsanto executives about the harmfulness of using Monsanto created products such as DDT, Agent Orange, etc. on farming crops. It has a harmful effect on the people who not only eat it, but who are exposed to it when the harvest comes.
When fructose is consumed in a normal range as our hunter-gatherer ancestors did when they ate fruits and vegetables all year round – and as part of a reduced-calorie diet for building muscle and losing weight – it and its cousin sweeteners such as sucrose, glucose, honey, agave nectar, fruit juice concentrates, and sugar alcohols really aren’t so freaky after all.
THANK YOU! I have several friends who are currently on this and are trying to recruit me. I have hashimotos and have had three babies in five years. I am 60lbs heavier than I was five years ago and have tried everything. I eat clean, gluten free, soy free, refined sugar free, and try to be active (even though I want to sleep my life away) and don’t seem to be getting anywhere. I am at a point of desperation and was very close to caving and trying it been though it goes against everything I believe to be healthy. This article has reiterated the things I was already telling myself. So glad I found you before I caved 😉
Secondly, I find it interesting that it is mentioned several times about the gluten and soy – the shakes don’t have soy in them. There are a few products now that have gluten however the shakes don’t. I am gluten intolerant as well and have major reactions when even a bread crumb touches something i eat. I have been using the product for about 8 months after being on a completely organic diet where my body could only eat sweet potatoes, avocado and organic vegetable soup. I was anorexic, malnutritioned and exhausted all the time. I wanted to give up before I was introduced to the isagenix product line. I had done so much damage to my body that even my brain was affected. I had a hard time holding conversations and my focus was gone.
This is not your ordinary milkshake. It tastes a little chalky, not as sweet, and definitely not a treat. The snacks, which we ordered in both chocolate and vanilla, aren’t bad. They’re like dense wafers or a harder version of those freeze-dried ice creams. For lunch, I had a grilled piece of tilapia and a small serving of roasted eggplant. All in all, the day wasn’t so bad, and I feel a lot lighter on my feet.
Instead of using Isagenix products whether it is for weight loss or for muscle gain or energy & performance, what would you recommend to be a healthier option or diet to begin with, just say to feel more energised? I myself have gone to incredible lengths to gain more energy and still haven’t been able to find an answer. Whether its changing what foods i eat (carbs/fats) or keeping hydrated by drinking up to 1 gallon (3.785ltr) of high alkalised (9.5PH to be exact) water per day or getting more sleep. I am a pro. footballer from Australia and still being quite young, my aim and dream to play overseas has never been higher. I came across your blog as i am just about to get started on Isagenix and i wanted to add a little more research to gain a better understanding about the product because to be quite honest, i am unsure as to how all of their products will effect my body/health. I have spoken with plenty of health professionals about what foods i should be eating, when i should eat them, all the where’s and how’s and to be honest, I’m sick of wasting my time/money going around in circles not finding any results. I have also done a bit of research by myself (not a lot or else i would probably be as qualified as you are haha) and still no luck. How can i find what will work and be beneficial for me, with out “trialling” products for 30 days and “hoping” it will be right? To put it straight, i am sick of this trial and error BS and honestly would love to know something, anything that will help assist my performance playing football and feeling more energised. If there is any chance you are able to provide any websites that I can take a look at, that would be incredibly helpful not only to myself, but to everyone reading through your blog as it would give a number of different, healthier alternatives but very similar results.

Let me clarify something for you, I wrote this article and receive hate mail because of it every single day. If I didn’t have integrity, I would erase it. But I leave it up despite the hate mail, despite the ignorant comments, despite the people like you who continually comment with no actual argument against my very valid points, because people need to know the truth about products like this. People need to know that they’re being sold junk that’s packaged as health. People need to know that the people selling it know little to nothing about nutrition. I wrote this article because I wanted to help people, I wanted people to question what they’re told instead of believing it. That is why I do what I do, to help people.


Sorry, kitchen’s closed (for 12 to 15 hours since you last ate). Nighttime fasting—or reducing your “eating window”—may help to reset your metabolism and burn the extra glucose in your system after a period of overindulgence, according to researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. The scientists fed adult mice one of four diets—some high in sugar, some high in fat, some both. And each of the four diets contained the same number of calories. From there, mice in each diet group were then given set times to eat. Some could eat whenever they wanted, others were restricted to feeding times of 9, 12 or 15 hours a day. Regardless of what kind of diet they ate, and regardless of the fact that they ate the same number of calories, mice in the 9-hour and 12-hour groups remained healthy, while all of the mice in the 15-hour group became obese.
It was as if no one had actually read what I wrote. No one bothered to address any of my specific criticisms. No one even tried to defend Isagenix's false claims that toxicity accounts for most disease, that the body protects itself from toxins by coating them with fat, and that internal organs become clogged and deteriorate if you don't cleanse. No one offered any evidence that “detoxification” improves human health. No one tried to identify any of the alleged toxins or show that they are actually removed. No one tried to provide any rationale for the particular combination of ingredients (all 242 of them!) in Isagenix products. No one questioned my assertion that “no caffeine added” is inaccurate labeling because green tea, which is added, contains caffeine. No one commented when I observed that the amount of vitamin A in these products is dangerous and goes against the recommendations of the Medical Letter. No one offered any evidence that more weight is lost by adding Isagenix to a low-calorie diet and exercise. I offered some alternative explanations that might account for people believing that Isagenix is effective when it isn't; no one commented on that.
