What is Shakeology?
This supplement incorporates cleansing minerals, herbs, and magnesium to help enhance your digestion. I have a great feeling of peace, even though I hit some pretty stressful events head on. I lost 16 pounds in these 10 days and could truly feel the detoxification. I have been exercising several days a week, watching my diet and still not losing. The first time it was for 14 days, the 2nd time was for 10 days and now I am attempting 21 days. I am lactose-intolerant and I need to know if this contains a milk product. Here are a few important notes on the Shakeology ingredients from the Bloomberg Business week article:
Take Action Today & Start Losing Weight...
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.
As I was throwing up and in bad shape my Isagenix person was calling me on the phone and telling me to continue…she didnt care about my or my health just about making her commission. They want you to do 2 days of precleanse recommended. I never did that I broke daow and ate dinner. It does make people nausous. You have the choice of drinking it straight then water. Thats what I do. It sounds like you jumped straight into the Cleanse, which is too abrupt a change for some people.
You were in the middle of cleaning out your body! When you change the oil in your car, what comes out? Exact same thing happened to me. This happens to me everytime and I know the reason. I was just full of junk! You were most likely allergic to one of the ingredients in the product, since there are a lot of them. That is not uncommon. Isagenix should not do that to you at all. You are just unfortunately possibly allergic to one of the ingredients.
And if she set you up with a membership she was truly looking out for you. Sounds like she was just trying to be your cheerleader and that she wanted you to be successful with your cleanse.
Sounds like the isagenix associate was being a great cheerleader and trying to help you through cleanse symptoms. I myselfcoached someone who became sick after two precleanse days and two liquid cleanse days. She asked if she could take something for her symptoms and I told her to go ahead. By this point we knew she was sick because she was on shake days food and still having symptoms.
I told her if she had to take anything for her symptoms to go ahead but if she still felt bad when the last 2 days came up not to do them. It just seems like we live in a paranoid world where everyone thinks someone is out to get them. I signed her up as an associate, for her benefit, so she could save money. If you are an isagenix rep you know the commission is sooo much less than it would be to sell it retail.
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 on the 8th day of my 9 day cleanse, and I can promise you I feel amazing!
So I thought my body would go into schock without them, but I have never felt better. The inches are coming off everywhere, and even though I know I may not be able to maintain the weight loss, just feeling better and getting all the toxins out is worth the price for the cleanse.
Hi, please refer to the Isagenix official website to reach their supportive customer service for details on product usage. On the shake mix?
I like the vanilla you can do more things with it. It is a nutritional program that helps to clean your body from toxins. I know people that have had diabetes and now they are healed. I have had eczema for 10 years and now my skin looks great. In 14 days I lost 12 pounds of fat and i feel super. You control diabetes thru diet and excerise. Type II diabetes response differently than Type I. I think this needs clarified.
Many people have been cured of all kinds of chronic diseases from diets consisting of whole plant based foods. There practice is geared to treat symptoms, not cure diseases. If they cured disease then they would be out of business.
I agree you cannot cure diabetes. MOst of what you lost in the first week was water. Not to discourage, but you will be discouraged later in the program. Hard work always pay better dividends then quick soultions. I have been using Isagenix for 2 years with the 30 day diet. It does not cure, or treat any disease. People feel relief, and if your replacing junk food with a nutritious program you will feel better but not cured. This is not water weight as one reader said.
If that is the case I was carrying 60 lbs of water. Price is an issue? Funny how it is not an issue when you go to an expensive restaurant. Your health is worth something. Isagenix has helped people lose up to lbs. I am 83 years old and have been drinking a shake once a day and the cleanse at night. I find this a very satisfying and beneficial product.
I dont need to lose weight. I do drink alcohol on weekends. Just want to detoxify and be more healthy, dont really want to lose weight. Anyone else took isagenix for those reasons only?
Hi Allison…has anyone respond to your question? Cleansing if an excellent idea for optimal health…not just for weight-loss! Excellent and nutritious way to do so to match your healthy lifestyle!
She says her flashes have been so much better and she sleeps a lot better too. She loves her wine and uses the products basically the same way. Hi, Im just starting my 30day cleanse, and am hoping to get some pointers? Thanks in advance, I know thats alot of questions!! Chocolate I add no fat cheryy greek yogurt and it is pretty good.

And when you have decided to get off these products and just eat your normal healthy food and exercise. Would the chances be that you will put on weight again. I have been on isa since May of and stopped smoking June I have not lost any weight on this program. I work out and was gaining muscle, and the scale was going up not down.
I have stuck with this program with buying bars and other snacks. Still no weight loss. They say if your bodies gone through a lot it may take longer to see results, well I am healthy but no results. I want to stay with this program but fell is down the drain.
Have any of your measurements changed? The scale can be very deceitful if that is your main measurement of determining success vs failure.
You say you have been gaining muscle which weighs more than fat AND takes up less space than fat. Before you throw in your towel, I would recommend that you ensure you are eating 2 shakes a day and drink a TON of water. I was stuck at first then increased my water intake. Now down 20 pounds of fat, tummy pooch is gone, and down 4 sizes. Now I will start weight training again to build more lean muscle mass as I pass 65…Keep the faith and contact your coach or the corporate office for guidance and tweaks- you will be SO glad you stuck with it!

It was like a manual. During the cleanse, my night sweats ceased, my acne cleared up and my allergy symptoms went away.

I have shown this book to 3 people who have asked me about the cleanse after noticing how my skin looks better, how happy I have been, and my weight loss a nice side effect. It is a challenge, but it is worth it if you are serious. So I am going RAW! If you are lazy and are not willing to make good changes to your diet not necessarily going raw, but cutting out processed foods and chemically foods then the MC would be a waste of time.

As a person who suffers with asthma, allergies, inflammation, sinus congestion, high blood pressure HBP , and leg edema, I have been on medications from my doctors for many years.
I found it hard to believe the words and claims of those in the book. After 15 days, my edema had lessened greatly, my sinus congestion had disappeared as did my chest congestion.

I lost 20 pounds on a 20 day cleanse and the weight is still off , I have more energy now than ever, and now I have a sense of clarity that is helping me to make better decisions in my life.
The cleanse does take a healthy helping of willpower, but just take it day my day. Not only did I lose 10 lbs, but I feel amazing! I would read and reread it every night while I was taking a bath during the cleanse. It answered so many questions.
I would never leave home and travel to a different state without a map and I would never do the MC again without this book. I am planning on doing the MC twice a year and am sooooo excited how it changed my life!
My husband and I are doing the Master Cleanse and already on day 6, I feel such a relief. My whole system feels rested and I know that we will not only finish the ten days, but will do future cleanses, just like Peter prescribes.
Thank you so much. I highly recommend the cleanse and the books! This book is true to its title, I bought this book about 2 weeks ago, read it, followed the advice, and my experience was just as the title states.
I lost weight, have lots of energy and was happier in 8 days, not Excellent Companion to the Master Cleanse. This book is a must for anyone aspiring to complete a Master Cleanse.

Peter is very encouraging and answers questions simply and clearly. My sister is getting the book and is starting today. This is a great guide to detox! This book helped me stay focused on the purpose of cleansing. Because of the experiences of those who have been on the cleanse, it was easier to be successful. It is comforting to know that I am not the only person to have detox symptoms.
Thanks Peter for writing this fine collection of testimonials. This book is a must for anyone contemplating the Master Cleanse. It answers any questions one might encounter and thoroughly explains the cleanse and what to expect. It also gets the mind ready and focused to begin.
I highly recommend it for everyone before beginning the cleanse. I have completed this fast twice — the first time with my soldier husband before he deployed and the second time with a soldier friend before she deployed!
The biggest challenge for me was having to prepare meals for our children while not eating with them! So I have to admit, misery did love the company! Both times I did the fast using just the website for advise but I ended up ordering the book for myself and another friend who is wanting to do the cleanse! This book is so practical, easily read and understood! Knowledge is power and having everything explained will help give the motivation to keep on with it and see it through!
My husband and I plan to do this again when he gets home from Afghanistan, and I will be so glad to have the book to refer to the next time around!!! Wanted to let everyone know that I have finished the fast that was started on Jan. In March I plan on doing it again for the ten days only. Till I totally clean myself out. The comments on the salt water solution I solved by using the SENNA tea from the health food store once at night before I went to bed and once at work in the morning and it worked great for me.
It did its job. Along with the fast I have now started to try and be a vegetarian with poultry and fish somewhat and meat on rare occasions. Lets all make our best year yet. The things you will learn in this book will change the way you feel about mindlessly putting things into your body that will slowly take your life. I gained knowledge of my body and learned how to manage my health and the health of my family. This is an amazing cleanse, and I personally know a number of people who have done it and lost weight and have felt much better and gone on to be much healthier after doing it.
My husband and I went on the detox after hearing about it from a coworker. It was hard, rough, making it through the 10 days but we both feel great now. I have no desire for meat, alcohol, cheese which was mostly what I consumed before being on a low carb diet. I have energy enough now to work out every day. This book explains everything in detail and the website has a forum where you can ask any question under the sun.
However, the forum in the back of this book will answer most of those questions anyway. As a society we are too consumed by food, it runs our lives. Try it and find out how you feel for yourself, it will open your eyes. Best detox plan — I did the Master Cleanse once and what a difference for me.
I am a truck driver and am always eating fast food on the road. I had gained a lot of weight and had headaches all the time. I started the cleanse making 3 32 oz. Not one time during the cleanse did I have any hunger pangs or feel weak from not eating… My headaches went away and I felt great. The hardest part was mentally stopping myself from eating, out of boredom, not from hunger. I am now starting the cleanse again… this time longer. As a girl with self-control and overeating problems, I thought it was absolutely impossible for me to not eat for ten days.
I found that this program was much easier to stick to than I originally thought; if at any time I was in doubt of the healthiness of not eating for so long, I would consult this book and its partner online bulletin board. These sources provided me with the answers to all the questions I could possibly have. I have just completed my longest cleanse, which was 20 days long, and every time I finish I feel like a new person.
Make the commitment to yourself and your body and go without food for ten measly days. Just make sure you allot 13 days to ease yourself back onto solid food. Good luck and happy cleansing! It was a hard and pretty miserable experience. Having bought this book now and read it thoroughly I feel so much more prepared to do MC 2. It will be a comfort to me to be able to pull it out anytime and read the words of advice specifically chosen by Peter to help one through the cleanse.
It is a must-have for anyone attempting to do the MC for the first time. Great Read, Great Program. Doing a cleanse was something I thought I would never do. Straight forward and easy to read, you can get through this book in a day. The numerous testimonials and questions from fellow cleansers give a degree view of what this program is really like. I did the program for the minimum 10 days and have enjoyed better health, more energy, and a slender physique.
I highly recommend this cleanse for people who are serious about ridding themselves of their bad eating habits. I did not want to lose weight, but wanted to be healthier and sleep better by removing the toxins from my body. And I feel great. I had not been sleeping for some time even less since I found out I had cancer last November. I would have continued the cleanse for 20 days, but I had lost a pound a day and was down to Needless to say I have been sleep soundly and feel great!
I will do the cleanse again later in July. I have both books, the original by Burroughs and this one by Glickman. This one was very informative. The web site is great, and if you get on the mailing list you receive taste recipes to help you continue with a raw food diet. This book is awesome! I am so glad I found it and I highly recommend it to anyone starting the master cleanse or lemonade diet. Night before…I just wanted you to know tonight is start night for the Master Cleanse and fast.
I think this will be tough, but something I must do. You have inspired me to give it a try. Second day…salt water sucks! I am at 36 hours plus. I had a little bit of a headache on and off yesterday. This morning I dreaded the 32 ounces of salt water. However, you are right about the minutes after. I started drinking at 6: My stomach feels good. I am very weak. So I am learning. I am hoping I can last at least 10 days. Any help from you and Marlene is most welcome.
I am mainly concerned about getting around the cravings by having alternatives. Your kalamata olives as something salty is excellent and one that I inherently know will work. You mentioned a good one for beef burger etc, but I forgot it.
Well I am still post salt water and heading back to the throne. I may need some encouragement by this evening. Hard part is everyone eating around me. However, you were right about the intestine cleansing from the lemon. After number two I had a sweep of the lower intestine etc with accompanied gunk that was not there this morning. It is evidence like that — that motivates one to continue.
Next is tea and bed. Some things to do after that. Day three of the Master Cleanse is well under way. Walked 1 hour 45 minutes. Drank quickly 32 ounces of salt water.
Had one lemonade drink and 24 ounces of water after that. I think I absorbed a lot of the salt water because of the walk. It took longer an hour or more to come out. Now it is one lemonade one toilet trip. A bit of an energy rush. I am relaxing because it is Sunday though.
Mostly reading and computer. I finished the raw book. The author is easier to take after not eating three days. I also have to say, and this is just plain nuts, I can read my computer screen without glasses and I have not been able to do that for two years.
I may have to hold back any more opinions about the peace love hippie granola stuff until I get all the way through this. Last day 10 …Thanks again for the inspiration and information.
