Isagenix Weight Loss Program -Does Isagenix Really Work?
Have you heard about Isagenix and want to understand what exactly it is?
Or perhaps you have had a friend of acquaintance experience Isagenix and seen their transformation and you are asking, what exactly is it, how does it work and is it safe and possible for me?
What can you expect
If that's the case, in this blog post, I will tackle what the Isagenix Weight Loss Program is, What's in it includes, how and if it really works. Share my experience and honest opinion about the product line and a few key tips for your success
Before I do that, is it okay if I share a little bit about myself, how I came to be introduced to Isagenix and why I chose to make this the subject of one of my blog posts? Thank You!
A little bit about me and why I'm writing this blog

What is the Isagenix Weight Loss Program?
The Isagenix Weight Loss Program is a system of products called the
What are the products in the program?
Above is a picture of the complete 30-day system that I recommend people get started on. The key to your success with the Isagenix system is that each product in the system is designed to target a specific issue/ area of health AND more importantly are designed to work well together. Know that when you are doing the Isagenix Weight Loss Program, it is not in addition to what you are already doing but instead a shift or switch to the Isagenix nutritional products.
So in the above 30-day system, with the 4 box/canisters of meal replacement shakes and one box of meal replacement bars, you are replacing a total of 68 meals which is more than 2 meals a day.
Specifically, the 30-day program includes:
4 canisters/boxes of meal replacement shakes
What makes the Isagenix replacement shakes superior is that not only are clinically shown to support healthy weight loss and lean muscle growth with 24 g of high-quality protein but they only use high-quality New Zealand whey from grass-fed free roam cows free from antibiotics and steroid. The whey shakes come in vanilla, dutch chocolate, and strawberry cream and periodically different seasonal
My personal take on these shakes is that they are easy to make, just add water, convenient, filling and an amazing value considering they are equal to three plated organic meals yet cost around $3 per meal. I also love the fact that I can give them to my kids and know that they are getting a much better start to their day than the typical bowl of sugary cereal. I'm in love with the dutch chocolate shakes and the seasonal shakes like the pumpkin spice. The seasonal shakes are extremely popular so when they are released you literally have to place your order right away or you miss out. I find the non-diary shakes are an acquired taste for someone who may be new to non-diary shakes and of the two I actually prefer the dutch chocolate (can you guess that I'm a chocolate girl ?).
1 box of the meal replacement bars
This 30 day supply of vitamins come in a pack specific to the needs for men or for women. There
Many of my clients comment that they see and feel a difference when they incorporate these vitamins versus others they have tried. The notice a lift in brain fog and they feel and notice a difference in the texture and appearance of their skin, hair and nails. Below is one such transformation from the inside out:
2 bottles/ canisters of Cleanse for Life
One of the keys to Isagenix being able to help so many different people achieve their weight loss goals is the incorporation of intermittent fasting into the program. Specifically, in the fact that with the Isagenix program, unlike other fasting you may have completed, the Cleanse for Life nutritionally supports you during the fast and you can only cleanse for a maximum of 48 continuous hours.
When I first tried the program, I was worried about how this product was going to taste and also how my body was going to feel/ respond. I had done several other cleanse or detox programs before and found them to be really hard on my body plus some of them tasted just plain yucky. I was pleasantly surprised that this beverage actually tasted good and it wasn't a poopy cleanse. I also actually found it difficult to finish my fourth serving of Cleanse For Life because I was so full so I had to stay up just a little bit later to get it in.
I was pleased to find that I felt more energized on my cleanse days, especially on the second one so now I actually look forward to them. For someone who has never cleansed, this is really a mind over matter challenge on the first cleanse day or two. It's a change in
1 bottle of Ionix Supreme
This is one of our top selling products and personally, I notice a difference if I run out of it in between my monthly grocery order. It's a very strong green drink that you take a small shot or two (or three if you are me with all the testosterone running rampant in my house :-) a day to support your body's better management of stress. This was an acquired taste for me on my first 30 days. However, with me noticing visible changes in how I looked and felt by day 4, I was very happy I made the effort and now I don't go a day without (unless I miscalculated between shipments). I actually now order 2 bottles each month because the difference in how I feel and look both in mental state and puffiness/bloating is just amazing.
1 box of Isa Delights
Another one of our most popular products. Who knew you could eat chocolate and lose weight? The Isa Delights also make the cleanse day experience a breeze as it helps to support your mind with a small treat during the day.
1 box of e-shots
These shots are a great natural alternative to any product you may use to boost your energy during the day. They are also great to kick start a workout as they the body burn
1 cleanse support bundle
The cleanse support bundle includes Chewables, the Natural Accelerator and
To be honest, I found it hard to remember to consistently take these supplements as part of the program so to counter this I put reminders
With the 30-day value pack, you also receive the following other items and freebies:
1)Free mini blender to make it easy for you to prepare your shakes
2)2 sample packs to share with friends and family as they start to see your results and question what you are doing or for you to sample some of the products in there that you may not have in your package like the greens.
3)Free wholesale pricing membership for an entire year. Similar to
4)A $75 dollar coupon to attend an Isagenix event. These Isagenix events are an amazing way to really see what the company is about and to connect and hear others stories of transformation. I really like that they skip the hype and create simple and welcoming atmospheres that exude good energy with leaders authentically sharing their stories and answering questions.
5)A guide to healthier you and other supporting material to set you up for success depending on your goals with Isagenix. This guide is really well designed and comprehensive. When you do start your program, I encourage you to take a few minutes before hand and read through and complete each section of the guide, particularly the first several pages.
What is the actual program?
Below is a really good illustration of the two main types of days that you have during the program.
Shake Days and Cleanse Days. Throughout the first 30 days, you can have up to 4 cleanse days and 26 shakes days. I usually recommend for someone who has big goals or is new to cleansing that they get a good 5 days of shake days in before doing their first cleanse day that way, the body has started to fill in those nutritional gaps using the easily digestible clean superfood shakes.
On a shake day, you can either do one shake and two meals or two shakes and one meal. This is the general protocol for most people however for someone with a high activity level such as professional athletes, their number of meals and shakes can go up considerably depending on their goals. In the guide, there is great guidance on what a good meal looks like including several example recipes and a list of sources for other good recipes. For my clients, I usually recommend that they do a shake in the morning for breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the deal and often the most lacking in protein and nutrition so just that one swap alone can trigger a significant improvement on how you look and feel.
On a cleanse day, you are giving your digestive system a well-deserved break to repair and recoup. A cleanse day is the equivalent of giving yourself a gentle internal shower, helping your body to gently remove toxins and impurities that are blocking you from being at your best. Unlike laxatives, or colon cleanse, the Isagenix cleanse is a full body cellular cleanse designed to replace the toxins with vital nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. This leads to a better and healthier you.
Does the Isagenix Weight Loss program really work?
Well, let's look at a couple of things.
1st- Let's look at the facts via 3rd party Clinical studies
There have been multiple clinical studies completed to date on Isagenix and the different solutions we offer. Including in those clinical studies, a two stage long term project for which the results are depicted below.
From the research summary below you can see that the clinical study concluded that the Isagenix program delivered better fat loss particularly fat around the middle. The Phase 2 study results are the most critical for me as I know one of the main concerns clients have is that is the weight going to stay off for good. The results from the Phase 2 results showed clearly that those who used the Isagenix program not only saw better results but were able to maintain or improve upon them on the long term.
2nd- Let's look at Actual results received by so many others
As the saying going, a picture is worth a thousand words and if you google Isagenix transformation, you will find thousands of pictures of people be it after a 30 day or after 4 years of incorporating these nutritional solutions into their lifestyle.
Isagenix has been operating for over 10 years and over those 10 years, we have seen a flood of transformations in people's health and physical appearance. More importantly that these people have been not only able to release the weight but also embrace their new identity and keep the weight off, thanks to the supportive community and a great and unique Isagenix tool called the Healthy Mind and Body.
Here are just a few of those thousands of global transformations below:
****The weight loss testimonials presented apply only to the individuals depicted, cannot be guaranteed, and should not be considered typical. A 2008 university study showed a statistically significant weight loss of 3 kilos during the first 9 days of the Accelerated Wellness System. As with any health or fitness program, a sensible eating plan and regular exercise are required in order to achieve long-term weight loss.
Finally, let's look at The Guarantee
Isagenix believes so strongly in their solutions that there is a 30 day "eat everything and still get your money back" guarantee. And with me, I personally touch base with each of my clients throughout their transformation to ensure they are having the best experience and that they are well supported. So, if for whatever reason you decide it doesn't work for you within your first 30 days, I ensure that you get your refund. This is extremely rare yet does happen and the one time that it did, I made sure to remind the client and actually also called in on their behalf to get the ball rolling.
How much does it cost?
The cost for the program outlined above which includes approximately 2 meals or more replaced per day for the 30 day period plus all the other supplements and support is approximately $25 per day including taxes and delivery cost for a maximum total of just under $750 USD depending on your province and address. This can be paid by any major credit card.
If this feels to be outside of the budget you are willing to invest in yourself to achieve the changes your need. There is the opportunity that you can get your products paid for thanks to the generous Isagenix compensation plan. It's quite simple, we call it you plus two and them plus two and is depicted briefly in the video attached below. Basically, Isagenix will pay you cash when you refer another individual to the company(deposited to your bank account or a credit card), cash not discount or free products (although they also do this in some ways).
When you refer two or more people within the same week, Isagenix actually doubles those cash referrals to you so if you find two other people who would like to do the program with you and they join in the same calendar week (Monday to Sunday), these referrals would basically add up to 50% of your package cash back to you well before your credit card bill arrives. Take a look at the "You Plus Two Them Plus Two" video below to understand more:
Who can do the program?
The Isagenix program is currently available to be mailed directly to your door if you live in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Colombia and Indonesia. The product is shipped from a depot within that country so there are no duties and shipping cost is kept in a reasonable range.
The program is designed for adults 18 years or old. Those under the age of 18, must have the approval of their guardian/parent to proceed. Here is the complete list of products as of November 2016: Isagenix Weight Loss Program Allergen Table Nov 2016. This list includes ingredients that people may be allergic and which products contain them as well as the minimum age(last right column) to safely consume the product.
If you are pregnant, nursing, diabetic, on medication, have a medical condition, or are beginning a weight control program, consult your physician before using Isagenix products or making any other dietary changes. Discontinue use if adverse events occur.

What's the best way to get started?
The best way to get started is with a 30-day system as outlined above. You may have heard of our 10-day program, yet I avoid recommending starting with that fist. When you starting feeling the results and want to keep going to achieve your goal, your total investment ends up being much higher than if you went for one of the 30-day value packages given the discounts that are incorporated in those bundles that you don't get with the 10 day. Further, the 30-day money back guarantee is only available for your first purchase so why tiptoe? Instead, make the decision then GO ALL IN so you experience the full kit and kaboodle risk-free and get a clear indication of how this can work for you.
Here is a video that I shot, walking you through step by step how to place your first order to maximize the value you receive for your initial investment:
What happens after the first 30 days?
During the course of your first 30-day program, we check in periodically so I can answer any questions, see how your results are coming along and make any tweaks as needed to improve your results and ensure you are enjoying the journey. If at the 30-day mark, you have achieved your goal, then after the first 30 days, we look into how to maintain the results for you. If at the 30-day mark, you still have a ways to go towards your goal, then by that time, we would have already spoken and set a plan for the next steps including customizing your system for that particular stage of the journey that you are in.
Other popular and highly recommended products
Outside of the 30-day programs that help people just like you, release weight and keep it off, have more energy naturally, improve their athletic performance or age more youthfully, there are also a few healthy lifestyle products that Isagenix offers. I would like to take a few minutes to spotlight my two favourite.
Brain and Sleep Support
This is a great product that you can slip into your purse and stick in a small corner of your bathroom or medicine cabinet. It boosts the body with minerals and vitamins to help our body's immune system stay strong. This is particularly useful in the winter or if your travel frequently as these tend to the risk times for you to become susceptible to viruses or infections.
Recap and Final Thoughts
Let's be honest, there are many great programs and products out there, the key to you achieving the results you desire is making a decision. Making a decision that you want to give it a try and then making a decision on which program or products are right for you based on your preferences, goals, and budget.
Isagenix has a proven natural system that helps to get your body back into balance and packages can be created for any budget including showing someone how to get their products partially paid for or free. I will be your personal cheerleader, accountability partner, and coach ensuring you're are well supported along the journey. So the bottom line is, you will never truly know if it will work for you unless you give it a try. Are you willing to give it a try?
So the decision is yours, keep on doing what you're doing and get the same results or try something drastically different, risk-free, (thanks to the 30-day money back guarantee and my personal commitment to you). Something that is proven to help many people just like you achieve and most importantly maintain the healthy lifestyle they desired.
Your new life is waiting, will you accept the challenge and claim what is rightfully yours?
P.S: Get started today, time flies! Do you want to live in regret or excited and happy that you said yes to you?
