Next Well & Good story:
Herbalife is a meal replacement shake that is synthetic, overly processed and contains GMOs. Continuing in my series of comparisons of popular meal replacement supplements, I've tested out the Arbonne protein shake program and am ready to compare it to the ever popular Shakeology meal replacement. Their weight loss program includes protein shakes, fiber, energy and weight loss supplements that can be grouped together to try for a maximum weight loss system. Looks like it is Shakeology for me. Shakeology Summary When you hear the term meal replacement shake, Shakeology is a name that often comes to mind. We have so much energy, sleep well and our focus is amazing. Love this program it takes a lot of discipline but you get the results and following it is not complicated!

I was super excited when I heard about this product, and how well it supposedly worked. I followed the directions to make my first shake, and the taste was terrible! It doesn't taste like chocolate at all. It is very chalky and has a texture like cake batter. Over the next week I tried adding peanut butter and fruit, but nothing made it taste better. Also, it didn't keep me feeling full either, each day that I took the shake, I would end up with a bad headache every afternoon.
I have tried other mixes and couldn't use them because of their content and me having a bad reaction. I bought this and tried it for almost 60 day which is what most nutritionist would suggest for something to truly have a chance to work as it should. First let me say that is taste horrible. I tried to add fruit to the mix and all and I still had a hard time drinking. Also it didn't mix well no matter what temp water I used. I wish I could return after this epic fail. I didn't have a weight loss success and it was not satisfying to my appetite at all.
Would not recommend to anyone. As far as scientific backing and clinical trials, the company does not make it easy to find out the real details behind the science of their product. There is no tab on their website talking about the development of the product. They provided the only clinical study I could find in small print on their page booklet on how to take their product: All of the descriptions are vague and full of fluff.
The transparency is not there, when taking a deeper dive into what you will be consuming. Good reviews can simply be purchased, which has me thinking that this mega company has invested their money in trying to pull popularity through reviews on their website. To see the reviews click here. No, it does not appear to be easy to follow. I am assuming you cannot, so you are required to take four cleanse servings along with four snacks for the day. You can purchase Isagenix on multiple different sites such as Amazon, the Isagenix site, and Ebay.
I believe this company is just another multi-level marketing company that offers nutritional supplements with little to no benefits for your overall health. I would call them a multi-level marketing scam myself, because of the inaccurate reviews on their website versus the rest of the internet. Distributors go out of their way to plant positive reviews without clearly disclosing that they have interest in company's good reputation.
I do not feel that this diet program is worth the investment or the time! Information on this website is not to replace the advise of the doctor, but rather for general education purposes.

Whether it be hiking, running, camping, or just enjoying cooking in the kitchen I have made health a focal point of my life.
I love to incorporate movement, and wellness in everything I do! I love the isagenix system! In my professional life, I have found diets that fail people are usually because the person fails to keep to the diet faithfully. Yes, I have tasted better shakes, but this does taste better than shakeology for sure. Even the creator says that usual weight loss is kgs. Which I would attribute to water loss on the cleanse days, which doesn't stay off unless you stay on this very expensive product.
Save yourself the money. Write a review on ProductReview. Want an easy way to lose weight or save time? Verified Purchase Unbelievable results. The 30 day cleanse and detox has been amazing, i did not do this system to loose weight i have RA and needed to get rid of the fatigue after trying many different diets ie. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free without good results i found this system and decided to give the 30 days a go, I wish I found it years ago, energy levels, sleep quality, skin and hair all the best in years.
I do not sell or try to sell Isagenix, but it is hard to stay quiet when you have such great results. I will continue to use these products for as long as i am feeling benefits.
Poor customer service and the 'sponsors' are just out to take advantage and make money. So my husband and I used Isagenix with good results last year. Recently we wanted to jump back on them, but we had moved address. Unfortunately due to a glitch our products were sent to the wrong address, and the rude consultant in customer service would do nothing to help us.
Instead said it was up to us to contact a realestate company we had not dealt with for over a year who were also not helpful.
Don't get sucked in they are just after your money! I'm not a first time user and this is not the first time we have had issues with orders.. The solution I needed. For the first time in my life I have a 6 pack AND energy to get through my day without coffee or taking short "nana" naps.
The support I received really shocked me, in a good way! Could not recommend more highly. Well it worked all right, lost 8. I stuck to the schedule like a champion as I was determined to give it my best shot. I am excited to see my next lot of results. Verified Purchase Fabulous results. Love this program it takes a lot of discipline but you get the results and following it is not complicated! I have done it twice and each time lost weight and felt fantastic.
Unfortunately last time I just went straight back to old habits and over time regained the weight. This time I will always have the products available so I don't allow the weight to creep up again! I ordered their products and was reasonably happy until I started getting charged and sent products I didn't order. I called them to let them know they'd made an error and requested to return the mistaken order for a refund and was told more or less 'Tough.
We will not refund and if you don't like it we'll cancel your account' which they did. There are better alternatives out there who won't scam you out of hundreds of dollars. Can't live without it the shakes anyway. I started in and have found that the Shakes are all I need for what works best for me. I did try the big bundles as well but felt that my body didn't need all that back to the shakes, They are delicious, thick, creamy and beneficial.
I like the shakes, they are satisfying and fill me up. It doesn't hurt to try and Rome wasn't built in a day. Verified Purchase Poor returns policy. I felt the flavours of the shakes were a bit strong, too sweet but once I started to mix 1 scoop each of the vanilla and strawberry together it was much better.
Its very convenient, and I did feel full and lost weight within a few weeks of being on the program. For me though, I suffered from excessive bloating and heartburn. I also tried the protein and greens which also didn't agree with me.
I kept going off it, and then trying again, with the same result each time. I then forgot to cancel the autoship order, and even more product arrived at my door. I rang to cancel the autoship and asked if I could return the order - it is unopened - I have been told no, that because it was my third autoship, I could not return the order.
I am not impressed with their lack of customer service, the product is unopened, I am prepared to pay for return freight - it should not be an issue.
I lost 4kg in the first week because you hardly eat real foods. Body ached, severe headaches, nausea, swelling. Not normal to be living on shakes anyway. What's that teaching our families at mealtimes at the table. Family meals around the dining table are lacking in this country. Wot age do i hafto be to take isagenix ageless actives is it for older people: Very over priced for what it is.
Others may enjoy their products. Verified Purchase Mixed results, far better products on the market. A friend of mine convinced me to try the isagenix.
I have tried many other brands and though there are many similar products on the market, isagenix has a range of added nutrients esp amino acids, and also comes in a dairy free version that's more suitable for lactose intolerant and vegetarian people. USAGE In practice the product doesn't work any better than many other products I have tried, the caloric content is much the same the regular version has quite a lot of sugar and dairy free has much less and the added ingredients including the accelerator and flush pills did not make any difference to the weight loss outcome.
The isagenix hunger craving snack pellets are a good way to get through fasting days. ALSO after researching the ingredients list, it became apparent that the vanilla 'natural flavour' is not actually vanilla essence, natural flavour for vanilla can include castoreum from beavers' castor sacs, you should check with the supplier?
Verified Purchase Good kickstart to a healthy life. I have just finished a 30 day Nutritional Cleansing program and whilst I found it hard at the beginning, I now feel great and have lost 10kgs. Would use this again. I was convinced by a friend to try Isagenix. Apparently we don't get enough nutrients in real food due to soil leaching and our bodies are awash with toxins that need cleansing. Most of the claims made are false and have no basis in science except for dodgy studies undertaken on behalf of the company.
One of the claims is that you don't need to exercise because all of the top-quality protein will be magically converted to muscle. You will lose weight if you stick to the program as it severely restricts your calories. Cleanse days are horrendous, no food at all.
