I have a similar opinion to Mickhael. You need to be more considered with your use of buzz words like toxic. Moderation is absolutely the key. If you drink too much water it is toxic. Yes maltodextrin is a food additive, one that serves a useful purpose as a thickener in some processed foods. I agree that processed foods should be limited, cooking with unprocessed ingredients is definitely the way to go. But I still eat processed foods in moderation because I enjoy them, and they serve a useful purpose on many occasions. I think you need to improve your understanding of a few nutrition topics (there are many that I need to improve my understanding of also, nutrition is a relatively new science).
In a small skillet heat the remaining ½ teaspoon olive oil on medium low. Whisk the egg whites and eggs together with a tablespoon of water until light and airy and add to the small skillet. Let cook slowly undisturbed until ½ of the eggs have set. Use a spatula to gently lift one side of the omelet so that the runny eggs can pool below, then lay back down the cooked eggs and top the entire top of the omelet with cheese.
I’m not sure if your brain isn’t properly functioning due to taking Isagenix for almost five years, but the ingredient lists were pulled directly from the Isagenix website and I really don’t appreciate being called a liar. Anyone who has the basic ability to read can see the list of sources I used to provide the ingredient lists. So to say that the ingredient lists are fake (when I clearly provided links for them that go to the Isagenix website) is basically an admission that you know the ingredients are garbage.
I’m immoral for highlighting the fact that people who know nothing about nutrition are often duped into buying these products that are touted as healthy when they’re anything but? For giving people the tools to recognize unhealthy ingredients in their overpriced protein shakes? Mind you – I give away all of this information for free, and I’m immoral?
One of the most important defense mechanisms the body has to guard itself against aging is a process called autophagy (8). Autophagy can be thought of as the body doing its own internal “housekeeping” so that all organ systems and processes continue to run smoothly. Old, damaged cell components are repaired or discarded so that cells can continue to function optimally. Autophagy in the body decreases as we age, so the body’s ability to self-help itself is reduced as well. Calorie restriction, including fasting, has been found to promote autophagy to mend the body’s cells (9). It’s as if the consumption of fewer calories allows the body to rest and to go into recovery mode. This has been proposed to be the reason why calorie restriction and fasting have an “anti-aging” effect.
Thanks for the article, Dani. I really appreciate the insight. I am always entertained by the constant back and forth. I tried Isagenix because a friend of mine has been using it and having a great deal of success. Since January, I have been trying to really get my health and weight under control. I had a real unhealthy lifestyle (eating like crap and very little exercise) and was bound and determined to get it under control. I started Isagenix in February (after a solid month of clean eating and exercising 6 days a week), and experienced a great deal of success in the first week and a half. I had more energy and my body was feeling great. However, after that first week and a half, I experienced serious hunger and harsh digestion reactions. It was really a struggle to follow the plan and all of the suggestions that my friend gave me. I felt like my body was holding onto everything I ate (or drank) – I was exhausted all of the time, dizzy, and constantly hungry.
The particular products I use are all gluten free and it is keeping me healthy. I had all kinds of aches and pains before I started drinking Isagenix shakes and my cholesterol was a little high. I just went for my annual doctors visit and I have never been healthier. My blood work all came back perfect and my cholesterol is lower than its ever been, and my good cholesterol is in a great place. Again, I’m not saying you’re right or wrong or that I’m right or wrong. I just want you to not be so closed minded. There are very healthy aspect and not so healthy aspects about all plans, which is why different plans and approaches work for different people and their particular needs. I’m not bashing your way and I’m just asking you not to bash mine. Any good professional will be able to argue both sides of any story. You have to be flexible in life. That’s how you learn new things and grow.
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.

If you're thinking about starting your weight loss with a juice cleanse, think again. While juicing may be the most popular way to jump-start weight loss, it's not the best way; especially when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. What you don't know about juicing could STOP you from losing weight and may actually be harmful to your health.
Dave in reply to your comment “those that Fail aren’t doing the programme properly” let me assure you I am INDEED doing it correctly! I am nearly at the end of my 30 day cleanse and have only lost 3.5kgs and 15cms I have followed it to a T and all I can say is good for you if you and your wife find this product great. I have also found that those that are “Big” to start with on this programme generally loose a lot quite quickly and it cant be a healthy way to loose. Exercise and wholesome food can generally shift the weight if one sticks to that. I just wanted a helping hand and can say that it wasn’t an enjoyable one! And……Tracy, you are definitely right about the sugar! Do people not know that Sugar is reported as being a Killer? Does not take a rocket scientist to see that!
I appreciate the information you have brought to the forefront. I have been a practicing healthcare provider for over 14 years now. I have used high quality supplements throughout my career in efforts to help people become more healthy. I have the ability to see health from the inside using objective data. We use blood, urine and other clinical testing to assess sickness and toxicity. I am someone that does their due diligence in order to put my name on that recommendation for my patients. This is precisely the reason I use the highest quality supplements from high quality companies, this one included. If I feel one company uses a superior product, I will use that particular supplement for that goal. I have always said I would not be married to any one company and feel that I have some of the best companies at my disposal for my patients. With regards to the deep cellular / molecular cleanse I have not seen anything work nearly as well as Isagenix, using objective data.

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!


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!
There are many, many poor people out there desperately looking for a solution to their obesity, and many of these programs will work for different people. Presenting opinion as fact, and robbing these people of the opportunity to try something that may save their life, is immoral. Perhaps your way of life will suit some other people, but maybe others will need to try something different. They deserve to read truly unbiased reviews of products, and try at their own discretion.

When CHOICE contacted Isagenix Australia a spokesperson said that the company prohibits 'associates' (who are independent contractors) from providing false or misleading information about the products or business opportunities and that it routinely monitors improper claims as well as providing training sessions. "We do not authorise any medical claims or advice with respect to our products."
While your cells constantly detoxify, consider doing a more formal detox as a spring (or fall) full-body cleanse. These plans, which typically last two to three weeks, include all the essentials to help your liver and other organs optimally detoxify, including protein, nutrients, and a detox-minded eating plan. Our Detox System provides all the nutrient support you need to keep your natural cellular and body detoxification in peak, all in one convenient package.
I just stumbled on this article because a friend is planning to do Isagenix and was suggesting I might like to do it with her. I have to admit that it sounds terribly seductive, albeit expensive. However your article makes a lot of sense to me and I admire the way you have held your own against so much abuse…Isagenix loyalists sound like Scientologists! If anything, the way that they are attacking you so viciously makes me MORE cautious about their products.

I’ve met the most wonderful people on the planet in this company. People setting out and doing the work of creating positive change in other’s lives. If you are doing the same thing in your own work… BRAVO to you! There’s no need to try to tear someone else down or a company down when there’s clearly (over 400 people have shed over a 100lbs!) tens of thousands of people who are benefitting.

I dunno even know where you pulled the ingredients list from! It’s so inaccurate. So what if you are a holistic coach it doesn’t mean anything. First of, your source is not accurate. I am into supplements and truly believe in whole food and clean eating. However, Isagenix is by far the safest when comes to Herbalife, Shakeology, Nuskin, Usana and Unicity when comes to toxicity and percentage of chemical compounds. Like you mentioned, US soil is depleted so where else do you get the nutrients; plants, fruits? LOL
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.
If a cross-fitter needs meal advice based on his/her specific needs, then that cross-fitter has some responsibility to bear as well. Isagenix has never claimed to offer personalized meal planning though some associates are fully qualified to do so. Would it be fair for me to expect my personal trainer to live with me to ensure that my very specific issues are being addressed while on my own as well… no, at some point, I have to take what I learn from him/her police myself. Isagenix is excellent at providing advice on healthy meal choices.
Calories in v Calories out, exercise etc etc, these are all the common sense answers to any attempt to lose weight. If you take Isagenix or any other product to SUPPLEMENT your lifestyle then you are more likely to achieve success, so if you look at Isagenix or other SUPPLEMENTS in this context then they will help. Maybe use them as a jumpstart to help you improve other lifestyle habits like the fruit and veggies and exercise. I have never tried this stuff but over the years as a Professional Athlete I have tried many, but they have never been the hook on which I hang my nutritional requirement hat….
I always keep an open mind when I am doing my research. So when I was approached about isagenix I started my reading and actually found ingredients online on some of their products. It was not hard to see that their products are not good for you. ALSO…some of their labels say it’s not for pregnant women or there are some warnings on their labels. What does that tell you? If it was apples, spinach, walnuts and coconut oil…it wouldn’t have a warning label. (just an example)
I’m talking about how certain activities and moments would trigger this desire in me to snack even though my body didn’t really need it--from the TV shows I was watching to where I was sitting in my living room. For instance, I knew I wasn’t hungry, but the minute I turned to Bravo to watch Andy Cohen or any of those Real Housewives, I suddenly felt the desire to pick up a bag of chips or order Chinese food.

You say your review is unbiassed, however it clearly is not since you go on to promote your own system. An unbiassed review has nothing to gain from it’s review and you clearly do. You are treading on thin ice by making claims about soy and gluten being in the products, when the label on the front clearly states “Free of Gluten and Soy”. And like Tanya says, what ARE your credentials to be making such false claims. You make strong assumptions about natural flavours and what some do, but that doesn’t mean that Isagenix does the same thing.
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.

I’m embarrassed and somewhat ashamed to admit that I was an Isagenix Associate for 2 years. I became aware of Isagenix through a friend (at the time) that I respected in the local fitness industry. I took only the main products (“Pillars of Health”), enrolled others, and for a while made some decent money. Luckily, I met another Certified Nutrition Consultant purely by chance during a layover at an airport and when I brought up Isagenix to her, because she knew a good amount about it from some of her clients that had come to her, she filled me in on many of the same “facts” (and I mean “facts” in a real and positive way) that you have mentioned throughout your blog. Well, of course, after meeting her I was bummed because I had so wanted to believe in Isagenix, and when I got home I spent hours doing research on my own – I had even taken notes at the airport. What the woman that I had met at the airport had told me was backed up by the research I did. Truthfully, there was always a part of me that didn’t feel comfortable with the whole thing, especially the 9 day and 30 day cleanse “systems” Isagenix highly promoted. I, personally, only sold a couple of the cleanse systems and one was to a good friend and he felt like crap during the 9 day cleanse and couldn’t wait until it was over. He did lose 3 pounds but like you said so many times, just because something makes you lose weight doesn’t make it healthy.
You could look at the fact that these EXPERTS have been experts for much longer than Isagenix has been around, and when they took a look at the formulation of the products, the source of the ingredients and the quality of the products, they formed an EXPERT opinion that Isagenix has produced a superior product to anything else on the market. After establishing their expert opinion, that Isagenix is the real deal, they decided to align themselves with Isagenix. After all, why wouldn’t you associate yourself with a company that produces superior nutritional products.
But the products are expensive. I suspect too expensive, given that I can get protein shakes and similar “metabolism boosting” supplements at my local SuperSupplements store. My coach tells me that the difference in price is due to the “trace minerals” and the fact that the whey protein comes from fully organically raised cows in New Zealand. That sounds a bit fanciful to me, but I can’t ignore the fact that the system appears to work for me.
Not true Dani. Good pick up Emma! A person eating a mainly organic diet with lots of fresh fruit and veges could be eating just as much fructose through the fruit they eat, if not more. I have already explained the low sugar levels in the isagenix products, 11gs in the shake, The swiss study I linked to mention that it could be dangerous at high levels like more than 100grams per day!
I must say that this is a well-written article although, it is unfortunately not accurate. I have been using the products for almost 5 years now and being gluten, wheat and lactose intolerant, I’ve never felt any better. There is NO SOY and NO GUTEN in the products!!!!! Also, the whey used in the shakes are from New Zealand where are found “happy cows”. The cows don’t get injected with growth hormones, no pesticides, herbicides and other “ides” are used in New Zealand since it is ILLEGAL.

Some of the comments were upset about you saying that there is gluten, soy and rancid oils in the products. How can they argue with company ingredient labeling? Gluten sensitivity is a huge concern for many people. One of my problems with the product is the whey content. For people with nonceliac gluten sensitivity any dairy derived product can be a major issue due to cross reactivity. Don’t believe me? Investigate Cyrex labs and their test array panels for cross reactive foods to gluten. New Zealand raised cows are not really any healthier than US raised cows for a variety of reasons. That is a myth perpetuated by companies using NZ raised cows.

I wrote this Isagenix review because I do not want you to fall for meal replacement shakes, for protein bars, or otherwise gimmicky foods. These companies produce cheap, toxic products and push them off on people as healthy alternatives (to what exactly I’m not sure). Instead, watch my video on how to make a protein shake that is not only unprocessed but actually good for you.

You may be tempted to reach for the meds, but medicating with vitamins from whole foods—blueberries in particular—is a much better, all-natural option to perk-up a compromised immune system. In fact, you can think of each sweet little blueberry as a pill that’ll make you feel a whole lot better. Oregon State University recently took a look at over 400 compounds for their ability to boost the immune system, and the study revealed blueberries as a standout due to a compound called pterostilbene. Goodbye Pepto Bismol, hello Pterostilbene! Bored with plain blueberries? Try any of our 50 Best Snacks for Weight Loss for nourishing eats that are also delicious.
This all reminds me of when Scam-way came out. Oops… I mean Amway. My girlfriend (at the time) was selling that garbage and I remember her telling me, “Tim, I was thinking about you today and thought of something that can help you save money.” Proceeded to hand me samples (the old reciprocity sales tactic). Those scammers have everything thought up down to the “script” she read to me. Eventually I read and saw all of the junk about emerald island blah blah blah. Fast forward it’s the same hustle different product different people in same cases.
Anyone who did the cleans and did lose weight, I can’t even fathom. each shake has 240 calories add in a light dinner say 400 calories, thats 880 calories a day as an intake. I know calories are not always perfect and I don’t pretend to know what I am talking about but I think you would have to be 80 pounds to eat 840 calories a day and not lose weight. At my size I burn approx. 3400 calories a day, hence my weight loss. Add in about 3-500 burned at the gym and I am losing a pound a day in just calories (which I know id not a perfect science)
I’ve been feeling very tired and have eaten very little. The shakes taste like twelve kinds of ass (I have to add decaf coffee just to make them palatable and I’m yet to be able to finish a whole one) and the snacks they give you with the presidential pack are, unfortunately, laden with chocolate. The bars have twice as much carbs/calories as the closest fruit containing equivalent I could find on the market, and the ‘cleanse day tea’ I have tastes like powerade. Exactly like powerade. I don’t think there’s a difference.
7. Finally, You know your goal well, (IE, to become a bodybuilder, just to lose weight, general health). You aren’t going to become an IFBB bodybuilding pro from using Isagenix. It doesn’t have what you need to sustain that lifestyle. Want your pro card? This isn’t for you. Want help with a pesky 10 pounds, this might be for you. Want to lose 100 lbs? Isagenix can help. Yes.. help (refer to #4). Want help with changing eating habits, this could work for you.. if you educate yourself in the process. All this is going to do, is help you wipe the slate clean to begin new healthier habits. I can help you, but you have to first, be willing to help yourself, including learning.

Appreciate the info Dani. Do you think all the isagenix products are bad? I do take some of their vitamin supplements which include vitamins B A magnesium adaptagens and many more vitamins that seem to help with energy. I am also taking the non dairy pea protein powder because I have a hard time getting enough calories every day because of the nature of my work and hours.
Lastly, length of time in this industry does not mean you know about nutrition (or maybe you do and still sell Isagenix for financial benefit). “if you think that “WHOLE” foods are something that the average person can afford to put in their body and get as much nutrition as in just 1 shake by Isagenix, then you are sorely mistaken.” So the average person can afford to spend hundreds of dollars a month on these products full of synthetic vitamins that can’t be absorbed? That doesn’t even make sense.
One of the most popular bottled cleanses today is the BluePrint Cleanse, which offers different juice options depending on how often you use cleanse systems. The standard Renovation Cleanse (recommended for beginners) has six daily juices for a total of about 1,070 calories. If you’re not ready to go all-juice, BluePrint also offers the Juice ’Til Dinner plan. On this diet, you’ll drink fresh juices all day, and have a dinner of a salad or another raw-food meal, along with two snacks. Jantz says that this food-and-juice cleanse is a healthier option because you're not starving yourself completely. But J.J. Virgin, a nutrition expert in California, points out that it still has drawbacks. “With the exception of the cashew milk, all of the juices have just 1 to 2 grams of protein but as much as 10 teaspoons of fruit sugar. With all that sugar and almost no protein or fat, you’ll crash, feeling lethargic and hungry a few hours after you drink the juice.”

This weight loss cleanse won’t put millions in your bank account or give you a fitness model’s body. It’s only meant to kick-start your journey towards a healthy lifestyle and help you get rid of bad habits. While weight loss will occur, it’s up to you to continue making healthy choices afterwards. This detox will simply make it easier for you to achieve your goals.


The Isagenix 30-day plan replaces two meals per day with shakes and has you eat a 400- to 600-calorie meal for your third meal. You also take their supplements, and two days per week in the first two weeks you drink their cleanse product instead of eating regular meals or drinking meal-replacement shakes. The ingredients of Isagenix include whey protein, fiber, enzymes and herbs, and the Natural Accelerator supplement also contains cayenne, green tea, cinnamon and ginseng, all of which the manufacturer claims assist fat burning. According to the manufacturer, these meal-replacement shakes and supplements improve energy, promote digestive regularity, increase endurance, encourage weight loss and help you maintain lean muscle mass.

I was surprised to find that I didn’t feel hungry on the Cleanse Days even though I wasn’t really eating any food besides the snacks. On day one, John and I went shopping and he stopped at McDonalds drive-thru and ate his Big Mac meal right in front of me!! Not very nice of him at all, but I wasn’t really tempted. I was a woman on a mission to complete the 9 days with NO CHEATING! When I did feel hungry, I went for a glass of water and an Isagenix snack. It satisfied my hunger and gave me energy.

Honestly, I could rant about this till im blue in the face. But no amount of ranting will mean anything because you do have some valid grounds but your missing the concepts of what Isagenix was based off of. The real quality of the stuff used (again my body can tell). But hey id be willing to even challenge you that if you worked with me directly, id probably gain 20-30 pounds no matter what you tried to do if I went Isagenix clean for a month. But at that point you would probably brush it off as a failure and I would be the one left to suffer the consequences .


We had to include green tea because it’s as mainstay as it gets. We especially recommend matcha green tea due to its high flavonoid profile. Green tea is even widely available in capsule form as a weight loss aid. What makes Green tea a top weight loss cleanse drink? Aside from containing a bevy of antioxidants that help flush the liver, it’s also long been touted as a natural fat reducer. How so?
"We can help our bodies do their job and get rid of toxins and byproducts of metabolic processes by simply eating well," says Kim Larson, RDN, spokesperson for The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. That's good news, since extreme cleanses can be harmful: They deprive you of the fuel your body and brain need, they rid your body of helpful gut bacteria, and they can contribute to an unhealthy relationship with food.
The only truly effective and comprehensive type of detox is a cellular detox also known as cellular cleansing. Cellular cleansing is designed to remove harmful toxins from the body where they are causing the problem: at the cellular level. While many people focus on eliminating toxic food, which is important, but there are many other toxins that people encounter that are not food related. A cellular detox doesn’t just focus on removing toxic food; it looks at all the potential toxins a person encounters on a daily basis and aims to remove them as much as possible from the body and environment. Before a person begins a cellular detox, it’s important to know what the potential toxins are and where they originate.

This is not written to debunk what you have written only but to those super supporters of Isagenix who rely only upon research provided by Isagenix and “third party’ reviews. Sorry, when you look at the third party they also are affiliated with doctors and supporters of Isagenix. What you want to review are Medical Journal totally unaffiliated. Arbonne is another company similar to Isagenix but their ideas are more closely insync with what you are talking about Dani. They also have better third party research to support their products. They believe in 100% natural and organic ingredients combined with a whole food diet. Take a look at it Dani and tell me what you think. I can not take it because they use soy they say NON-GMO soy but soy period causes a reaction for me.


But other experts don’t see cleanses as necessary. “In otherwise healthy people, there is no evidence that cleansing or detoxification has any benefit,” says Thomas Schnell, MD, a gastroenterologist at Loyola University Medical Center in Illinois. “The human system is designed to clean itself out without interference. Fiber, which is absent in an all-juice diet, is what keeps the bowels moving." Most American diets are low in fiber and eating less meat and more fiber through fruits and vegetables is a healthy diet step, Schnell says. However, the idea that your colon needs cleansing is just not true for most people.
While frighteningly difficult to pronounce, this digestion-resistant carbohydrate source is quite natural and good for you. Oligosaccharides, in fact, are found in a variety of fruits and vegetables. The ingredient also acts as an important “prebiotic” that helps feed healthy intestinal microbes (1). That’s really about all that’s creepy crawly about it.
Hello Dani! WOW! Truth is.. The BodyDoesn’t Lie! So you are right on the money when you mention listening to your “intuition”. Oh my holy goodness.. I have been taking the Isogenix Shakes etc for almost two weeks..because a ‘well meaning’ someone signed me up under her to sell, sell, sell and had a UPS package of products shipped to my home at no charge to me. I didn’t have a good feeling about them and immediately voiced my concerns about the high fruitcose and sodium content to a top representitive of the company who repeated a continuous looping of ‘these products are formulated by a Master Formulater and everything balances out.. He knows what he’s doing!” I just came across your site late this afternoon and read clear through to the end. So gratefull for your staying in the arena here with all these cultish holy rollers.. I drove to the small market in this small mostly one religion town and bought a Kombucha and took a swig in your honour…because I have felt so fuzzy headed, unclear and with an ache in my back in the area where my right kidney is since taking this “stuff “! There is so much more I could say.. Instead ~ I’ll just say how much I appreciate you and look forward to reading more of your other articles! It’s probably a ‘runaway train’ with the long winders. .. But keep your post up..for those who know the truth doesn’t lie!!!! My best to you!
I’ve never done the cleanse, but was thinking about doing so after the holidays. I’m no medical expert, but I am entering into health care as a nurse in the near future and nutrition fascinates me. The hypothesis that neurological syndromes and food allergies are attributed to toxicity *has* been supported by research (see Dr. Theo Colhoun’s work). Differences have been shown between subjects who ingest foods laden with additives and pesticides in contrast with with subjects who eat whole, organic foods. The effects of taking in said toxins can range anywhere from developmentally delayed children to reproductively impaired adults. These statements have been supported by data and research.
