So, Dani, your world appears to be about being fit and healthy. You take a holistic approach to that. You advocate organic food – and that’s fine as long as we recognise that this food is subject to the toxins in the environment – like fumes for example on their way to market just as we are on our way to buy them. Does the organic farmer check the trucks they use to ensure the fumes from the vehicle itself isn’t polluting the carefully grown crops in organically optimised soil?

I would like to point out here in this blog and comment thread: How many people commenting here are actual and active scientists, clinical practitioners, updated active nutritionists? Did you know just because it is natural does not mean it is good for you (sexually transmitted diseases are natural), and on the other side just because it is “manufactured” does not mean it is bad for you. I am in no way comprehensive in these quick comments. Please do not ask me what I recommend in these comments. I am biased because I am picky and I am science based as a practicing clinical nutrition and medicine expert. And those are the sources where you want to get information from on these subjects. There are a great deal of comments on this blog, most distracting and many dangerous in their information.
I think sometimes people in your profession forget just how much most regular people do not know, and condemn products that may be a far better choice when compared to what they are currently eating, as in my case. What that does, is confuse people even more and they throw up their hands in defeat and return to their good old American Processed diet. An entire generation plus, has been born and raised into this over processed, convenience food country….Perhaps the all or nothing approach to better nutrition with them will not work? It does appear to be failing, as American’s keep getting heavier and heavier, and far less healthy than say 45 years ago. But wait, not true, we have pharmaceuticals to keep us alive in our unhealthy state even longer 🙂
What really amazes me with isogenix has no actual legitimate proof that their products work when the suggest the meal replacement injunction with an exercise and calorie controlled diet WTF no wounder the weight stripes off. If you actually look into credible research databases isogenix is not listed but yet the hoax on google and through the isogenix has produce this “so called reseach” which I suggest is backed by isogenix. One thing I find bizarre they claim that isogenic detoxifies our bodies well WTF are our liver and kidneys for. These quick fixes are a money making scheme which is not even approved by the AGA therefore not creditable what so ever.
Although both MSG and protein hydrolysates are additives that are primarily used as flavor enhancers, they are subject to specific labeling rules that requires their disclosure on ingredient labels. MSG is an isolated salt of the amino acid glutamate, which is used to enhance the savory flavor of foods. While glutamate is found naturally to some degree in nearly all foods (particularly high in cheese, mushrooms, and tomatoes), MSG is an extremely concentrated source. Protein hydrolysates also tend to be naturally higher in glutamate, although are presented with other amino acids and nutrients. Even though they are listed as natural flavors under the Code of Federal Regulations, it’s mandated that they be specifically listed along with their source on the ingredients label. Common types of hydrolysates often appear on labels under such names as “hydrolyzed wheat gluten,” “hydrolyzed soy protein,” and “autolyzed yeast extract.”
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.
The recommendations, results and safety of cleanses vary. Extreme cleanses, such as the Master Cleanse, which has you subsist on lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for 10 days, can leave you weak and nauseous. You may lose weight in the short term, but are likely to gain back all the weight you lost shortly after returning to your old habits.
A cleanse is different than a fast. And the body knows the difference. During a fast the body slows the system and its workload/efforts to compensate for a perceived lack of nutrients. To this end, if your cleanse doesn't supply sufficient nutrients (the range of nutrients -- carb, pro, healthy fats) it's likely that the body may alter its metabolic functions in a way that prevents sustainable results and may compromise short term energy and immune function.
That’s in part because when you restrict calories, you restrict nutrients. As a result, you lose weight on a crash diet, but much of it is lean, healthy muscle tissue. With less muscle, your body’s metabolism is set at a lower point. So when you go off the diet, even if you eat the exact same number of daily calories as you ate before, you’ll actually gain more fat than you originally carried.
There are some vegetable oils contained in products however these are non-hydrogenated. Meaning they do not have trans fatty acids like hydrogenated oils do. Palm Kernel Oil is a stable vegetable oil that is extracted from the seed of Elaeis guineensis, the oil palm. Thriving in tropical areas, oil palm is commonly found in Southeast Asia and central Africa. Palm kernel oil is solid at room temperature, which is something that is unique for a plant-based oil. The reason is because of its high content in the medium-chain triglyceride lauric acid (similar to coconut oil).
Also, I was extremely frustrated after I initially signed up. The person who had “sold” me on it immediately sent me links on how to branch out and get people to ask me about it. It was suggested that I post my success (there was not success) on my facebook page and to watch videos on how to talk to other people in order to sign up. The exact words were “you will be a great brand rep as you are already active and healthy, people will flock to you”. That was not my intent at all and I did not sell it to one person.
Please don’t assume to know how I earn a living. I’m not compensated for these reviews. I write them for people who are sucked into spending their hard earned money on a subpar product. It’s insulting to insinuate that the only reason I wrote this article is because I was paid to do so. I wasn’t. I write what I want and it’s important that people know the ingredients in these products. Health doesn’t come in a can.
Hell, the last time I visited my doctor she recommended going vegan and avoiding whey – so who is right? My doctor or Isagenix doctors? Why do you think there is so much debate in scientific and doctoral fields? Because people disagree! Because people are paid to promote one thing over the other, people are paid to skew studies. There are doctors that say GMO’s are safe, even healthy!
If you don’t feel ready to try a full day at first, there’s nothing wrong with gradually easing into Cleanse Days. For example, you might prefer to start out with a 12- or 16-hour “mini cleanse” as a way to experiment with Cleanse Days and see what works best for you. In this approach, you begin your day by following a typical Cleanse Day schedule, and then break your Cleanse Day in the late afternoon or evening with an IsaLean® Shake.
Sleep 7 to 8 hours every night and indulge in a little pampering and self love. Avoiding tobacco, alcohol and caffeine helps reset your system. Drink adequate amounts of water. Registered dietitian Joy Bauer suggests that you have at least two 8-ounce glasses within 30 minutes of lunch and dinner, and additional water throughout the day. Herbal or green tea also fits in with a weight-loss cleanse.
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.

It is talking about the overconsumption of fructose, and especially when used in large amounts in beverages and sweets. Because when found in fruits, there is fibre and other nutrients/bulk to help balance out the sugar (and also slow its absorption), as well as reduce the likelihood of overconsumption — because you’ll feel full faster eating an apple than drinking a Coke.

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.
