One of the many things I love about Isagenix is the way they keep things real. Contrary to some misperceptions out there, this is NOT a crash diet, nor is it a vehicle to “jump-start” your diet. In fact, it’s not a diet at all but nutrition for life. These high quality products are designed to provide the body with the nutrients it can no longer ingest from our food due to a variety of factors: nutritionally deficient soil, cows injected with artificial hormones, pesticides, etc.
They are designed for long-term usage, to be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle with benefits that go far beyond weight loss to include healthy aging, increased energy, better muscle tone and an overall feeling of well-being. At the same time, the folks at Isagenix understand we’re all human: even the best intentioned and most disciplined person in the world is still going to enjoy an occasional slice or cake, or a piece of candy, or a glass of wine — especially when celebrating a special event or taking a vacation.
One of the secrets to my success is that I only weigh myself about once per month, preferring instead to take measurements and notice the way my clothes are fitting. Everything is loosening up, including the workout shorts I am wearing right now, which used to be almost painfully tight. Just a little while ago, someone remarked about how much weight I am losing as evidenced by my face. Hearing that kind of feedback is nourishment for body and soul and keeps me motivated to go the distance.
Funny thing is, while I agree that we must keep living (which includes the enjoyment of what we typically think of as “forbidden” foods), I don’t even have a desire for sugar or sweets since starting the program. However, it’s nice to know that when the day comes that I do indulge, I can get right back on track with a Cleanse or All-Shake Day.
