The Isagenix Weight Loss System Works!

There are so many health and wellness programs out there. How do you determine which one is worth your time and money? Transforming your body is more achievable when you can engage with a supportive community to help you optimize the products. That’s just the beginning of the secret to success with Isagenix. We provide nutrient-dense meal options that are easy, convenient, and an exceptional value. We combine this with the latest science on effective weight loss and sustained health, including an intermittent-fasting protocol. Read on to learn more about the Isagenix Systems for weight loss, energy, performance, and healthy aging.

Supportive Weight Loss Community
Good health is an important commitment, and anyone making a lifestyle change needs positive support to reach his or her goals. Isagenix not only offers products that help you achieve your goals but also a community for education, support, motivation, and accountability. Hundreds of thousands of people across the world have maintained healthy lifestyles for weight loss, weight maintenance, muscle building and retention, and fitness performance by using Isagenix products. The best results are achieved with the right support and guidance in combination with our products.

Isagenix Nutrient-Dense Meal Options
Isagenix originally developed meal replacement options using dairy and whey protein due to the large body of evidence supporting whey protein’s ability to support muscle building, fat loss, and support for overall health (1-3). The advantage of dairy protein, and whey protein in particular, is likely due to the amino acid profile and high concentration of branched-chain amino acids. Research supports this notion not only for the aforementioned benefits but also for satiety, a factor crucial for successful weight loss, weight maintenance, and long-term compliance when using meal replacement options (4-5).

The Isagenix System differs from the protein-shake diet regimens commonly offered in the marketplace, as the shakes and bars are complete meal replacements, providing the optimal nutritional profile. Because nutrient-dense meals must contain more than just protein, Isagenix meal options are well-balanced, providing carbohydrates, fats, and fiber. Many of the Isagenix meal options are low-glycemic, which means nutritious meal options for a broader market.

The Ease and Convenience of Isagenix Nutrition
One of the primary reasons people have difficulty remaining compliant with a diet regimen is the amount of time and planning required to achieve the desired results. While most consumers understand the importance of a healthy diet, many lack the time, knowledge, and/or skill to follow and prepare a nutritious diet. Isagenix makes it easy and convenient to integrate nutrient-dense foods and supplements into one’s diet. Isagenix takes the guesswork and time out of preparing one to two meals per day and provides healthy snacks that make it possible for anyone to achieve and maintain a nutritious, satisfying, and delicious diet.

The Exceptional Value of Isagenix Products and Systems
While price is an important factor when choosing meal replacement products, it is critical to determine if those products are meeting the nutritional requirements needed to sustain and nourish consumers. Isagenix protein meal options provide excellent nutrition at a reasonable price. When comparing Isagenix products and systems to other companies, not only should cost be considered but also the nutritional makeup of individual products. Many products claim to be “low carb” or “low fat” but have 15 grams or less protein – which makes these products inadequate meal replacements. In comparison, Isagenix meal replacements include 24 grams of high-quality protein. At 240 calories, the high-protein, balanced nutritional profile keeps you feeling full, longer, without depriving your body of much needed nutrition. This is not just a shake; it’s a total meal!

The Isagenix Intermittent-Fasting Protocol
Another integral component to the Isagenix Weight Loss System, as well as the other lifestyle solution categories, is an intermittent-fasting protocol that we call Cleanse Days. Performed one to two days per week depending on lifestyle goals, Cleanse Days provide guidance and nourishment on the day(s) that consumers abstain from shakes or other meals and foods. On Cleanse Days, consumers are provided with targeted, low-calorie nourishment that make intermittent fasting easier and more successful. Isagenix Cleanse Days have been clinically studied as part of the Weight Loss System and are shown to support successful weight loss, long-term weight maintenance, and improvements to cardiovascular health markers (6-9). A growing body of research further shows that intermittent fasting supports aspects of health, such as metabolic and cardiovascular health, as well as activating cellular repair or “self-cleaning” mechanisms (10-13). Scientific literature also shows that fasting substantially increases human growth hormone, which facilitates fat burning and fatty acid release, and can also lead to other potential benefits long term (14). Cleanse Days are one of the multiple factors that makes Isagenix stand out as a science-based nutrition company that supports overall health.

Results not typical. Weight loss, muscle gain, lifestyle, and other results depicted here reflect exceptional individual experiences of Isagenix Customers and should not be construed as typical or average. Results vary with individual effort, body composition, eating patterns, time, exercise, and other factors, such as genetic and physiological makeup. In a study performed in 2012 by University of Illinois at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 9 pounds with an average of 2 pounds of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix System. The subjects also had a greater level of adherence and had more consistent weight loss from week to week compared to subjects on a traditional diet. In a two-phase study performed from 2015-2016 by Skidmore College in New York, researchers evaluated use of Isagenix products for weight loss followed by weight maintenance. As part of the weight-loss phase, the participants took part in a calorie-controlled regimen of Shake Days and one Cleanse Day per week and lost an average of 24 pounds after 12 weeks. During the weight-maintenance phase, the subjects who continued the calorie-controlled program using Isagenix products better maintained their weight loss in comparison to those who transitioned to a traditional diet after 52 weeks.
