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.
I was connected to several people on FB that sell this product. They are all claiming the same ‘wealth’ that Isagenix has brought them. One girl claims she has purchased several expensive sports cars, fly’s in a private jet and has an expensive home (posting pictures to prove it). She also claims to be one of the top selling reps, yet her name is nowhere on the Isagenix website. Her pictures appear on other peoples pages as well. Her profile picture has changed from an older blonde woman to a young brunette. Sounds like a fraud to me. This is why I’ve started looking into this product. How can you trust it?
There is absolutely no Soy protein. They use soy lecithin as an emulsifier…Lecithins are oily substances that are naturally found in plants (soybeans) and animals (egg yolks). It is extracted for use as an emulsifier in many prepackaged foods such as ice cream, milk shakes and chocolates. As an emulsifier, it helps keep fats and water from separating and produces smoothness in our IsaLean Shakes and IsaDelight Plus dark chocolates.
2. Include water and potassium-rich foods (and drinks) that are low in sodium. This is a potent combo that restores normal fluid balance and flushes out bloat and puffiness. Why is this combo so magical? Fluids help to flush out your system while potassium helps to counterbalance sodium. (Go for vegetables [all of them, especially green leafy veggies] and fruits).
Let’s start off by clarifying that in general, multilevel marketing companies are legal scams in the United States. The government allows them to exist and multiply. They offer products which are little more than a “front” for the schemes, since without a legitimate looking product or service, the companies would be at risk of appearing to be illegal pyramid schemes.
It’s been very interesting reading all the feedback on isagenix. I know many people who sell it. I think it’s nothing other than a MLM scam for consultants to make money.The bottom line for real weight loss is, get your butt up and exercise, eat a clean healthy diet and drink plenty of water. There is no magic pill, shake, vitamin, cleansing product out there. My philosophy is, if you can’t read the ingredients in what your eating then don’t eat it!!
I have to question anyone’s credibility who makes an ignorant statement that wholefoods is causing obesity. Clearly, these individuals are misinformed. ANY food in excess may lead to obesity. However, health is not just about weight. There are many variables which determine good health. If one where to eat 8 cups of brown rice a day 8 bananas and 14 avocados a day, YES this could lead to weight gain. It is still important that when eating whole or raw foods that we are eating a balanced diet. Even eating too much of the same greens may have an adverse affect on the body.
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.
