When the Isagenix came to my door I was pretty excited to start my journey to cleansing my way to weight loss. Everything I have done since my third son had been born always ends up with the same results – me gaining the weight back, and usually within a two-week time frame. This last round was the final straw. I was so upset because I had been dieting for 18 months straight. That really sucks! It is hard to always have to pass up meals with friends, family and special treats because you want to be able to fit into your clothes. I went up to 205 pounds with Mason and came out of the hospital at 215 and an 8 pound baby! It just did not seem fair. I breastfed my way down to 175 but I could not break past that, so the dieting began. I tried HCG which worked great and I got down to 145, but I was back up to 160 eating normally within a month after I stopped the diet. I tried Nutrisystem, which was an easy diet for me and I got down to 143, but I started to eat normally and I was at 155 in two weeks. I saw where I was headed! Depression! Then I read about Isagenix Reviews on Simply Stacie’s site. I always have my eyes open for a better way, and Isagenix really spoke to me. As you can see in the above graphic it cleanses your body. That is why I always had the rebound. I was toxic! Go figure with all the dieting and pregnancy and stress of my husband being gone for a year and the pot of coffee a day, I should be. I am a run-on sentence of toxic! I also want to add that eating normally is not gorging, not a bag of cookies, but a sensible dinner and lunch – balanced and nutritious and proportionate. I believe anyone who eats a bag of cookies will rebound! So, I talked with Jason, Stacie’s rep and he signed me up for my first shipment. I received everything you see below.
I chose the liquid cleanse formula over the powder. I knew it was a berry flavor (one I am not fond of- all berry not just Isagenix) so I figured I could just down it in a gulp! The shakes and snacks come in two flavors – chocolate or vanilla, and I opted for the chocolate. I love chocolate and figured I could not go wrong with that choice. I started off with one shake day to get my body used to the low calorie diet ahead of me. (Okay I lie – I really wanted to start out on a cleanse day, but I woke up with no coffee and drank a shake cause I read the sheet wrong in my non-coffee, sleep deprived state)
You are supposed to drink two glasses of water and then an hour or so later drink a shake with an Isagenix natural accelerator pill. I was really worried I was going to starve, so I split my two scoops of IsaLean shake powder into two shakes instead of one. I figured that would add another glass of water to my 8 required for the day and “trick” myself into thinking I was having two shakes instead of one! It worked. I did not really even want the two Isagenix snacks that I was allowed to have as my morning snack, but I did to see if I would enjoy them. Stacie was not too fond of hers, but she liked the Isagenix Cleanse drink – everyone is different, because I really liked them. They were kinda creamy after you chewed them, and in hindsight I crave them. Crazy! Another trick I did with the shakes was to pour them into a short glass so I was able to have two glasses from one shake. That gave me four shakes – this really made my “head” think I was full.
On the Isagenix shake days, you get to eat one 400-600 calorie meal. Below is a picture of my standard meals. I had 150 grams of chicken, a mixed green salad with spinach, carrots, tomatoes, and a laughing cow – lite cheese (35 calories). I used 1 Tablespoon of Fat-free Greek dressing. I really enjoyed my lunch and was completely satisfied until almost 7 pm for my next shake. I took two Isagenix snacks around 4 pm, but I did not feel I needed to eat them.
That is an overview of my first day. I was so impressed with how easy it was.
Cleanse day – I will have pictures on my next post, but I wanted to let you know it is not as hard as I would think. The first day was a bit rough – I could feel the toxins pouring out of me and I had a killer headache. BUT after three days, here are my results. After only three days, one shake day and two cleanse days, I lost 4.2 pounds and 1.5 inches off my waist. My pants fit and I feel good. I wasn’t even hungry when it was time for my shake day again. Today when I write this I am on day 6. I am thrilled. My headaches are gone and I feel healthy! I will keep your updated as to my progress and beyond.
