The reason why people feel “energetic” is because those bars are just blocks of sugar, and of course people will lose weight if two of their meals only add up to ~600 calories (recommended daily intake is 2000-2500). It’s possible to achieve a healthier body by healthy eating and portion control – hell…I trust Supersize vs Superskinny more as evidence than Isagenix.
Luke, Doctors of Naturopathy are registered practitioners and their recognized services are covered under group health insurance plans in Canada. In Europe, where they are even more highly esteemed, and specifically in Germany, they work alongside oncologists to help battle cancer by using multi-disciple approaches to saving lives. On the other hand, while my husband endured 6 months of chemotherapy for stage 3 cancer, the hospital dietitian provide a toxic list of antiquated notions of supposedly healthy foods. It was the 1950’s all over again. Thanks to our naturopathic doctor, who helped fortify and sustain my husband’s immune system and the elimination of inflammatory foods, he is, at the moment, cancer free. I think that if you have had the good fortune to be “thrown in to the same category as a naturopath”, your reputation will benefit.
My darling made me watch the 30min hype clip about how you can do this and that with this new thing, I asked her to wake me up when they tell you how to do all that amazing stuff. I fell asleep but after a while she pats me on the shoulder. I said to her. “Did they tell you you can give and live and all that cool stuff?” She said. “Nah they just want me to buy their milkshake.” I love Isagenix

I wish people would open their eyes a bit and spend more time criticizing and ripping apart the REAL scammers in our world, like Big Pharma whose job it is to keep us sicker than ever and not a product or company that promotes and believes in REAL solutions for a healthy body, whatever the company may be. If any of you actually believe that our bodies can naturally defend themselves against all of the toxins and pollution that is bombarded on us WITHOUT our consent, then good luck to you…you will need it. Start fighting against those making you ill….NOT those trying to at least help! And btw…this lady’s job is to pick apart anything she gets her hands on….open your eyes!
I was introduced to Isagenix by sister who is a massage therapist. She shed about 55 lbs in the course of 4 months and really kept off the weight. I was always very excited for her, but for a long while I wasn’t interested in having to do anything with Isagenix. I thought I could merely, “pull myself up from my bootstraps” and do it on my own, just by eating clean and exercising.
Thank you for doing all this work! very informative. I have a friend who has just begun distributing this and I was curious (NOT Curious enough to try any of it! I was sure it was NOT a good idea) but when I went to the website and could not find an ingredient list (except for hype) I KNEW for certain it was not a good idea! if they don’t want to tell me what’s in something its not going in my body! good job!

The second link you provide by David Despain is the science and communications spokesperson for Isagenix, what irony. Now he would be a good person to contact to raise your concerns:): This link doesn’t support your argument at all. quoting the first paragraph “It was the most recent of several review papers to conclude that fructose is probably not inherently fattening in humans, but that it can be fattening if it’s consumed to excess, due to the added calories”

Furthermore…… to all the people out there who have been quite arrogant in some of these posts, but saying that Dani knows nothing…………. I do not know this lady, but I do know my family GP very well and i have no reason to doubt her. My recent blood results did show a change in the Vitamin D level, but that was purely down to the fact I had a Vitamin D injection to cover me for 6 months (rather than take daily supplements). Other than that…. NO Change anywhere. I can honestly say, this system did not work for me.
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.
Today is Day Four of my special "Does it Work" Health tests, and perhaps, today features the most controversial test of them all.  I'm focusing on nutritional cleansing weight loss plans   These days, it seems almost any magazine you open or red carpet interview you watch on TV, celebrities are talking about detoxing to jump-start their weight loss.
One more thing…. organic is kinda a joke, you know that right?? With the amount of pollution in our air, water and soil….. how can it be organic? Yes it can be free of pesticides, color, flavor and they have grown it to their best ability, but locally grown food is just as good. My opinion, organic is a money grab…. do I not buy organic? No! But I most certainly don’t buy only organic. I do buy 90% of my produce and meats from Canada though… keeping local 🙂 But that’s just my opinion…. and I don’t judge or recommend anyone do anything but what they want 🙂
Apple Cider Vinegar Mint “Detox” Drink: Among many great ingredients that help to flush bloat, it’s got mint–we like to think of it as a peace maker in the body It eases indigestion and calms the stomach, likely by improving the flow of bile through the stomach, which helps to speed and ease digestion. Thanks in part to it’s anti-inflammatory antioxidant rosmarinic acid, it “calms your insides” to ease the havoc inside your body!
I take issue with anything listed as “natural flavors.” Because chances are, it’s not all that natural. Hell, even monosodium glutamate (MSG) can be masquerading as a natural flavor. The labelling is loosely regulated. In Food Rules: A Doctor’s Guide To Healthy Eating, Dr. Shanahan discusses a study in which 95% of ingredients listed as “natural flavor” contained MSG.

Oh Boy, I am reading all this information about how ISAGENIX product is bad for you because of some ingredients and is wondering why is isagenix helping me. I am a cancel survivor and had developed allergies, joint pain, was tired and wipeout out. I am not an obese person and always eat healthy but yet have these problems. I used natural product to help my allergies and joint pain and it never work. Since I am using Isagenix, my allgeriies and joint pain are ALL GONE!!!. I am actually enjoying being outside again. I have so much energy and I feel my life is back. Fact is ISAGENIX WORKS FOR ME.
The Isagenix diet will not deprive your body of any nutrients. Hence, you can follow your regular exercise routine or start working out whenever you get time. Warm-ups, walking, running, jogging, cycling, yoga, dancing, playing a sport, etc. will help secrete the good hormones. These, in turn, trigger metabolism and help you lose weight. You will look and feel good after a good workout of at least about 30 minutes.
You said you called Isagenix and asked if they were certified Organic and when you were told “No” you didn’t bother to investigate further or get any other question answered, like your question about ingredients. It’s not that Isagenix choose not to certify their products, it’s that they can not even start the process because there is no organic certification available for some of the ingredients used in the products. That does not mean they are below organic standards. In fact, the Isagenix shakes, that contain Grade 7 Whey Protein (the highest grade possible), actually exceed US Organic Standards.
This is a low-calorie diet that lasts 30 days, makes untruthful claims, uses unproven ingredients, has no research behind it, and is a huge waste of money. The salespeople are clearly not supervised in how they promote the product, and to be honest, I’m not sure how Isagenix gets away with this entire racket – the products, claims, and the sales pitches. And marketing to kids under 18? What are they thinking? I guess they want to hook people for life…do you really want to give this company your money? 
Shame on them for “bashing” you. I hope you don’t feel that I’m one of them. I want you to know that I fully respect your efforts and that you truly believe in what you do. However, I also have a real soft spot for people who try their best but don’t have the knowledge to make an informed decision. I personally know people who have been taken advantage of and feel a personal responsibility to help.
Thank you for this post. It is unnerving that people are questioning your “professional background”. What credentials do these so called blog-blashers have? Now, I’m the first one to say that if it works for you, GREAT! If using whatever-shake-pound-reducing product has been a stepping stone in the right direction, than that too deserves applause. However, we all know there are many foods that even our beloved FDA trumpets as “healthy” even though they are chalked full of toxins. Nitrates in lunch meat comes to mind here. Nitrates that have long been (and ban from most European countries) known to cause cancer and other illnesses. Just because something has been “approved” by doctors, doesn’t necessarily mean it is safe! Phen-phen was also the wonder drug, and many many people lost weight, and now the use has been banned. This too was hailed as “safe”. Canned food is another example. It is now becoming widely known that approximately 10% of canned foods have high levels of BPA that is known cause various cancers, especially in children where many infant formulas contain high levels of BPA. These canned food were also toted as “safe”. So let’s stop with the “doctor’s research and doctor approved” jargon.
I have to say that I’m pretty amazed that people are still falling for the ‘cleanse’ thing. Maybe it’s just me, but haven’t we learned by now that cleanses are useless? What is the point of doing this 30 day diet/cleanse, anyhow? Losing weight that’s mostly water and will come right back when you start eating normally? ‘Resetting your metabolism’, which really doesn’t work that way and in fact, may reset the wrong way, slowing down from lack of nourishment? Is it the handfuls of supplements that you couldn’t possibly take – or afford, for that matter – for the rest of your life, but are also unproven and likely do nothing? Or, the replacement of meals with a shake – reminiscent of Slim Fast, and we all know how that works – but not learning how to really prepare, savor, portion, and enjoy food? I know that you know all of what I’m saying here, so please don’t let emotion overtake intellect when you’re considering Isagenix or any other diet program.
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.
” Hi Hanh, Yes, I am with Isagenix. I understand how you feel that way about shakes also. I was glad I took the time to speak with the formulator. He’s an amazing person and he really understands how to put whole food nutrition into a shake. He explained to me how our body has to actually liquefy the food we eat and break it down into it’s most basic components. He decided to put together a shake that already had all the nutrients our body needs, broken down so our body does not have to do the arduous task of digestion. It tastes really good and I think that if you looked into it very closely you would find that like me, you would be very pleased. If you know anyone who would be interested in something like this and you referred them to me, I would truly be grateful. http://www.isagenixhealth.net
I can not process sugars or starches at all. They make me very sick. Despite me trying to explain this to people selling this, I have continued to get flooded with people trying to tell me it will help me . I can’t have maltodextrin, brown rice syrup, agave sugar, beet sugar,canola oil, flour,and many other ingredients in the products. This company and other companies have people who are uneducated about the damage these ingredients can do over time or in a short time for people with serious health conditions. I have been reassured over and over that they have heard of people with the same condition being in a wheel chair and now they can walk. If I point out ingredients I literally can not have, they try to direct me towards other products they offer . They don’t care about me. They care about sales.

I was overwhelmed a bit at first, but quickly figured out how it all worked. They include lots of literature in the kit so I was able to read more about the products and how they work and when I needed to take them. I was ready to begin! I started on a Thursday and I got up that day and weighed and measured myself (ugh!). The kit provides an area for you to record both your starting weight and measurements and even included a tape measure. I knew this weight had to go and I was excited to finally have some direction!

I do believe the Isalean shakes can cause bloating, because that is how I feel. Bloated. Constipated. I can no longer button jeans that fit me fine up until they reached my distended belly. This is in the wake of drinking adequate water and exercising and confirming ( on multiple occasions) that I am not pregnant (which would make me very happy if I were).

Either you are getting bad advice from your coach or you are not doing the program correctly, my wife and I have been on Isagenix for over 2 years have lost weight and have never been healthier, there is no reason why you should be hungry you can do your shakes plus your meals make sure taking in enough calories, if your not happy you send your products back and you will get your money back they offer a great money back guarantee. Most that fail on this program either have bad coaching or are not being honest with themselfs and are not doing the program correctly
I have a very small farm (less than 4 acres), I own a small, Heritage breed Jersey cow who produces over 4 gallons of butter-fat rich milk every day that I milk her, and that is WITH me sharing milk with the calf. MY cows live to be 17 years +/- old and pass away (usually) laying down in their barn on a soft bed of sweet hay/straw, closing their eyes and just not waking the next morning.
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.
Wow, what a read!…l understand your problems with Isagenics Dani, however my daughter and a couple of her friends have recently completed their Isagenics 30 days, and tell me that they have never felt better!..l can see that they r so well…shining eyes, hair energy, clear skin, sleeping well etc …all the usual markers of good/improved health! I can also see that is not for everyone, and definitely do not feel that l could trust the company and just a smell of the “artificial smelling” products is a turn-off!…so lots of warning bells but personal experience so far, quite amazing!…

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!

Make sure to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and at least one snack (absolutely no skipping meals!) and ensure they consist of whole, real foods only. Eating consistently throughout the day will help you lay the foundation for ongoing healthy eating. I’m talking loads of veggies, lean protein such as grass-fed steak, chicken, fish, eggs and healthy fats from nuts, seeds or olives, avocado or coconut.
