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.
The reason I feel this stuff is a scam is this. I did an experiment after I after heard all the hype on this stuff. I bought an herbal cleansing kit from the good food store and used protein shakes to replace breakfast everyday for a week. It cost me 39 dollars for the protein and 30 dollars for the cleanse. I lost 8lbs in 7 days. Was it the right way to go about it? No, I just wanted to prove that people are sheep and 280 dollars was a waste of money!
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.
Not just Isagenix, but to all the health/weight loss fads out there, there will rarely ever be peer related articles fully concerning these individual products, as there are issues with funding the research. These products generally do not stay in the marketplace long, hence health agencies will not get involved. Isagenix will not provide research that will ultimately affect the sales of its own products. That is why Dani has brought to our attention some of the ingredients/components that are of concern, and its up to you, the consumer to make a decision based on these facts. Just because a product has passed the guidelines to enable it to be sold in a country, doesn’t mean it is good. Take caffeinated energy drinks for example.

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.


Raw nuts and seeds provide healthy fats and protein. Dried beans and legumes, such as lentils and chickpeas, provide protein and phytonutrients. Brown rice, quinoa, teff and millet are whole grains that you can find in the bulk bins at health-food stores and in some grocery chains. The fiber in the whole grains and produce will help keep you full and helps regulate your digestive tract.
Shakes, fads, and quick fixes are temporary fixes to a bigger issue in my opinion. Yeah, I can detox, drink shakes and a few healthy meals a day but am I willing to do that for the rest of my life so I can lose weight? Hell no. I’ll stick to eating 6 times a day, eating my dozen egg whites and veggies, chicken and tilapia. I’d rather invest my money in real food.
I googled Isagenix and came across this crazy conversation. I also noted that I am on a website for a HOLISTIC HEALTH COACH. Why is everyone attacking her?! A bunck of people asked her to give HER review of Isagenix, and she did. You don’t have to agree with her. You can think whatever you want, this is HER blog. Make your own and post you own opinions there!
Since each individual’s body is different, it is better to consult your dietitian or physician before you start this diet. Depending on current weight, medical history, current activity levels, age, genetics, etc., your dietitian will be able to customize the diet plan. Feeding your body the right foods to help burn more fat and being physically active is the best way to lose weight.
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!
I just started the 30 day plan today and I have such a bad headache and mentioned it to a co-worker. She said that these types of plans are drastic and it can take a couple of days for your body to get used to it. I decided to read about it ( I know a little late for that) and everything seems so positve but when I saw the ingredients under the label (you need to peel it back to read it) I got a little nervous. I like the keep it real approach, buy whole and local food when I can, but I struggle with LIFE. A sit-at-the-computer all day job, low energy, high sugar intake and drinks on the weekends. I wanted something that would give me a boost and my girlfriend was selling this and I thought I would try it. I read all this back and forth and I realize that most of these people “FOR” Isa are worried about people not buying or stopping Isa and you are wanting people to make informed decisions, so coming from 2 totally different places. If I was selling it and making money I wouldn’t want people saying it not good for you but I am really glad that you choose not to worry about being popular with all these folks and wrote this article, because I am going to buy a salad and return my Isa products for a refund. I think I will buy your book too while I’m here!
