Myself and my friend tried Isagenix myself for a month and my friend for a week we both became uncharacteristically aggressive and are wondering what is in this product to cause such a mood altering reaction? I am contemplating just sticking with the program minus the cleansing stuff. We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who has 10 or pounds to lose. You wrote this in July Isagenix is a meal replacement shake designed by the Isagenix Company, to help your muscles grow and to help you lose weight.

A number of scientific studies have shown that creatine can improve strength,  energy,  muscle mass, and recovery times.
In addition, recent studies have also shown that creatine improves brain function. Creatine increases what is known as cell volumization by drawing water into muscle cells, making them larger. Creatine is sold in a variety of forms, including creatine monohydrate and creatine ethyl ester , amongst others.
Though all types of creatine are sold for the same purposes, there are subtle differences between them, such as price and necessary dosage. Creatine monohydrate is regarded as a necessity by most bodybuilders. Creatine monohydrate is the most cost-effective dietary supplement in terms of muscle size and strength gains. This can be accomplished by mixing powdered creatine with grape juice, lemonade, or many high glycemic index drinks.
Some studies have suggested that consumption of creatine with protein and carbohydrates can have a greater effect than creatine combined with either protein or carbohydrates alone.
The inhibition of exercise-induced skeletal muscle damage by HMB is affected by the time that it is used relative to exercise. Meal replacement products MRPs are either pre-packaged powdered drink mixes or edible bars designed to replace prepared meals. MRPs are generally high in protein, low in fat, have a low to moderate amount of carbohydrates, and contain a wide array of vitamins and minerals.
Some MRPs also contain flax oil powder as a source of essential fatty acids. MRPs can also contain other ingredients, such as creatine monohydrate , glutamine peptides, L-glutamine , calcium alpha-ketoglutarate , additional amino acids, lactoferrin , conjugated linoleic acid , and medium-chain triglycerides.
A sub-class of MRPs is colloquially known as "weight gainers", which are meal replacement products with a higher carbohydrate: Whereas a MRP will typically have a 0. A thermogenic is a broad term for any supplement that the manufacturer claims will cause thermogenesis , resulting in increased body temperature, increased metabolic rate, and consequently an increased rate in the burning of body fat and weight loss.
Until almost every product found in this supplement category comprised the " ECA stack ": However, on February 6, the Food and Drug Administration FDA banned the sale of ephedra and its alkaloid , ephedrine, for use in weight loss formulas.
Several manufacturers replaced the ephedra component of the "ECA" stack with bitter orange or citrus aurantium containing synephrine instead of the ephedrine. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs more medical references for verification or relies too heavily on primary sources.

Hi Shirley — What an inspirational story — really hoping she has success! Thanks for keeping us posted, and wishing your daughter all the best.
I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!! I have been on Nutrisystem for about 5 weeks now. I lost 15 pounds the first month and have been following it to a T.
The food tastes fine and it is very easy to just grab something pop it in the microwave if necessary and go. I have been using My Fitness Pal to track my food and am eating about calories a day. The first week was really tough and I had a hard time, but I stuck to it.
Now I m satisfied and use to it. Planning on finishing up the second month and then on the 3rd month working in more home cooked meals and tracking to stay at the same calorie level. Then will switch over to the auto ship of Turbo shakes for my 4th month. I have about 40 pounds to lose and feel like I am making some good headway with the Nutrisystem plan. Good job on the review, very well written. Wow, nice job Carolyn! Thanks for sharing your story, and best of luck with the rest of your diet.
I was very happy to find this website. Just wanted to thank for your time for this wonderful read, and inspirational review!! Hi Kelly — sorry to hear that!
Have you tried connecting with the Nutrisystem counseling service? We had to take Nutrisystem program for 8 weeks because we got it at a discount thru our insurance company. My goal was to loose 30 lbs. At the end of the 8 weeks I had lost only 3 lbs. We did not care for the cardboard like food and did not get anywhere close to our goals. This program obviously works for lots of folks, but not for us.
We did go to the Naturally Slim program and in 8 weeks I lost Naturally Slim is based on not what you eat but when and how you eat and you eat your own real food and got real results. We will stay with our new habits learned with Naturally Slim and will not have any good words from our Nutrisystem experience. Hi John — thanks for sharing your experience. Thanks so much for sharing your story. It was encouraging and helpful. I am only on my second day of Lean 13 and after comparing the Turbo Shakes with the protein powder I was using before, I noticed that mine was lower in calories, fat, sugar, and carbs and higher in protein by quite a lot.
Thanks again for your review! Hi Peggy — I think you should be fine using your own protein shake. Just to be safe you may want to talk to a Nutrisystem counselor, and they can let you know for sure.
The biggest issue would probably be the calorie count of your shake vs. Best of luck with your two weeks. I made some raspberry coffee and chilled it. Thought that might be a nice tip for someone else. Just finished day 1 of the Turbo Takeoff… I was down 2 lbs this morning!!! Yay… only 58 more lbs to go!!! I am so determined and my mind is in the right place to really do this, this time..
I am very excited for the results.. I know i will be on the program for a few months but, I really feel like I need the structure of this program right now. I have been feeling a lot of emotions from having gone through breast cancer and several surgeries the last 3 years… I just kinda let myself go… but, I am so ready for this change!!! Thanks for sharing, Lynn! Best of luck with reaching your goals! Very thorough review…thanks for making the decision easier!
I just signed up for my first order. Went with the Core, and really hoping to least a good 20 pounds. Just finished month 1. Does this stuff really work? Thanks for the comment, Heather…It definitely works when you follow the program correctly. Best of luck if you decide to try it! First, take the time to put the food on a plate like you would normally eat. Focus on the journey. Take the time to praise yourself for the positive change.
I started on Nutrisystem exactly 2 months ago with a week lapse. I only wish I had started months before. Question first great info as I really need something kind of no Brainerd and ready. How long in your experience would you say orders take to turn around? I am currently out of town but want to have the product arrive day if or day after returning so I can hit the ground running.
Thanks ahead for any info. Hi Deb — Thanks for visiting. If I remember correctly, the last time I ordered it only took 3 or 4 days to get my shipment. Thanks for the review! This was helpful in determining which program to start!
I also appreciate your thoroughness and videos. I hope to get fit during my weight loss journey and obtain my goal by next year. Hi Rose — Glad you liked it, and best of luck with your weight loss journey! Is it possible to melt away one to two pounds of stubborn body fat every single day?
It sounds insane, but according to the scientific proof — and the thousands who have already done it themselves using this secret — the answer is YES. I have tried every diet on the market. This was my last resort. In fact, I have to remind myself to get everything in. My doctor is on the program, her husband and son! Notify me of new posts by email. Leave this field empty.

Isagenix ingredients include whey protein powder, stevia, psyllium, green tea and apple cider vinegar. Choosing the right product is the 1 question asked by DietSpotlight readers.
We recommend trying any product before buying it and know that finding a product with a sample offer is near impossible - so we created our own product, Burn TS, with scientifically backed ingredients. Isagenix 9-Day Cleanse is a weight-loss program that includes a meal replacement shake, snacks, fat burner and detox.
The Isagenix 30 Day Cleanse schedule is similar to the 9-day cleanse, but it lasts three times as long. Isagenix can be purchased using their Official Site or through Amazon.
It also contains coconut oil and green tea extract. There are good supplements out there that offer some support for weight-loss, but our research is to find products that offer more than that. Formulas like the one used in Burn TS give you more than many others on the market. Summer Banks, Director of Content at Dietspotlight, has researched over weight-loss programs, pills, shakes and diet plans. Previously, she managed 15 supplement brands, worked with professionals in the weight loss industry and completed coursework in nutrition at Stanford University.
Do Not Send Email Notifications. No caffeine, efedra or mau haung…all natural herbs….. Diane the original source of these products was a chiropractor in Chandler who is very hard to reach.
I was wondering where you life, I am in Tempe but do not mind driving as bit to get products. Does any of these products contain caffeine or any other stimulants? Keep in mind that natural ingredients can also be stimulants. Caffeine is naturally a part of coffee. I agree, the chocolate shake made me wired! Not the acceralor, not the cleanse.
I believe it is the caffeine in the cocoa. Next order will be vanilla. Good luck in your weight loss journey — if I can be of any help just let me know. I just started today, this is my first day with the shakes, I will be doing the cleanse on Wed. I feel fine, hope I can make it to the end, need to get 30 lbs off. Steve, It is now the end of February — I wanted to know how how you have progressed over the last month. Did you stick to it?
How much weight did you lose? What are your updated thoughts on Isagenix? My hubby and i started on friday a 30 day cleanse. He was at kg down to I am healthier, have great energy, more lean muscle and my immune system is strong. How long were you on it? I just started 6 days ago and I do feel better then ever and just want to know what others are doing that makes the most of the 60 days I have bought of it!
Do I have Heidi Flagg? What products are you using with isaganix? I am using the product too. Just wanting to utilize more fully. I started the day program recently and would love to hook up with someone that I can share my journey with. If you are interested, let me know. I also started on March 9 and I will be 55 next week. I am contemplating just sticking with the program minus the cleansing stuff. Both the liquid and the powder made me sick! I love the shakes!
I have lost 10 lbs and do feel better overall. I am a nurse and am really skeptical about the whole cleansing thing. What would you do? Maybe try eating a IsaSnack before you take your accelerator on your next cleanse day. But as Always make sure you talk with your cleanse coach that signed you up. You wrote this in July How did it go? Did you stick with it? Did you keep the weight off? I am staunch skeptic on things that claim to be natural and come out of a bottle.
My best friend signed my fiance and I up for a 30 day. We know how to lose weight without these products, but I am doing it for a health challenge and see if it has results on my next blood test…i.
Added bonus if we lose weight for our wedding in June. Let me know how you go. My products should arrive today or so. Allergic reactions appear to happen. Yes the money back guarantee is only for the first 30 Days. Auto-ship is not necessary to get the 30 Day guarantee though you get the very best prices on auto ship! Isagenix is extremely good at honoring this policy.
The shake mix is rather high carb and high in cellulose but better when mixed with their whey powder. In my opinion, any time you choose not to eat for a day or two you are going to lose weight, slow down your metabolism and most likely gain it back. I will tell you that doing the cleanse as directed is key and eating organic balanced meal.
The 9 day, 30 day and maintenance program make it easy. My whole family loves it and non of us have caught cold knock on wood.. I personally coach all that signs up with me. Just eating normal food. How often do you and your family get colds?
Your losing weight because you are controling your calorie intake. You can do that with real food. You will actually find losing weight HARDER if your system is sluggish and inundated with the kinds of toxins that come from common additives and preservatives. When those are flushed from the system.
Kinda like flushing out an engine. I am sure it is. But you may find your efforts a little easier with a cleaner more effecient digestive system then not. Surprise, surprise we all need to look better on the outside to be happy. I needed what it did on the inside. My energy, my recouperation time, my mood. All these are the best they could ever be.
The whole world is fat! I believe that cleansing is key. Nutrisystem is real food? The best way to lose weight is through sensibly reducing your calories, adding more fresh fruits and raw vegetables, and cutting out a lot of meat and dairy. The fastest way you can lose FAT, is 3 lbs a week. Try to keeping down….. Look at the studies. They are there and I have medical background.
This was recommended by my doctor. I have been exercising several days a week, watching my diet and still not losing. I really need to go to work. Tracy, isalean shake is all you need on shake day. Mixed with 8 oz of water and fruit. Isagenix is the only thing i have ever done that worked lbs total weight loss and kept it off for 2 years! Totaly changed my life!!
I got extremely ill on this product…threw up and it took me a week to recover. My doctor says that a lot of these herbs are not good for people…obviously that was true for me.
