It’s been 12 days since I began a 30 Day Weight Loss Cleanse with Isagenix and I’m alive and kicking! On Day 1 I announced here on SoberJulie.com that I was beginning and that this is NOT a sponsored post. This is something I want to do for myself to improve my health and get past the plateau I had been on.
Well buh-bye plateau! I have lost 12 pounds in 12 days and am feeling so much better.
After living with injuries and chronic pain from a car accident, my biggest hope was that my body would begin to feel better. That my constant aches and pains, my sleepless nights and headaches would improve.
When one lives with chronic health issues it’s often difficult to be aware of any changes in how you’re feeling. You become so enmeshed in just getting over the pain that you don’t always realize when it’s there until it’s so bad you need to rest. This was a daily thing for me; by mid afternoon I would usually need a good rest in order to regroup and reenergize for the evening.
This is no wee thing, it’s a pain in the ass on all levels. My kids and husband felt the brunt as I’d leave them doing activities to rest…feeling as though I was missing something.
All of that has changed in the past 12 days! Now I don’t need the naps, I’m sleeping better at night and my body just feels better overall.

After reading the materials provided I realized there is a set schedule where you have 26 Shake Days and 4 Cleanse Days. It’s all laid out clearly in the documents and the folks at Isagenix are available 24/7 online or by phone to answer any questions.
I happen to have a great coach Tammy who helped me to choose my own schedule.
What a Shake Day Looks Like on Isagenix
The first 2 days were Shake Days, I had IsaLean Shakes for breakfast and lunch, IsaSnacks through the day, 30ml Ionix Supreme, 2 Natural Accelerators, lots of water and a 400-600 calorie meal for supper.
IsaLean Shakes come in 3 flavours, Creamy Dutch Chocolate, Creamy French Vanilla or Black Sesame. In my pack I ordered 1 canister of the vanilla and 1 of the chocolate. After trying both individually, I found that I actually like to combine them. Now when I make my shakes I use one scoop of each, a bit of ice and 8 oz of water.
To be completely honest it felt weird using power from a package in a shake but after reading the IsaLean Shake Ingredients I felt more secure.
IsaLean shakes are designed to help burn fat and build lean muscle, they are made with hormone-free, antibiotic-free undenatured protein, low-glycemic carbs and healthy fats to reduce your caloric intake without depriving your body of much needed nutrition.
These shake days were actually quite easy for me as I hadn’t been eating enough throughout the daytime hours before Isagenix so I actually was quite full and had loads of energy and the shakes are delicious.
Dinners for me are our typical dinners, for months now I’ve made myself 400-600 calorie meals and I’ve been keeping up my 85% Paleo lifestyle.
What a Cleanse Day Looks Like on Isagenix
Cleanse days are designed to give the liver a break and for your body to eliminate toxins. On my first day I experienced a queasy tummy and a headache but I persevered because I knew it was the release of the toxins I was feeling and by day 2 of my cleansing I felt better.
Cleanse for life tastes like a concentrated fruit punch and has no artificial colours or flavours, this synergistic blend of natural cleansing herbs and botanicals nourishes your body’s systems to help boost metabolism and energy levels.
Overall Thoughts so Far
When I purchased this kit I knew it would be difficult. I am a total foodie and miss holding any foods I desire in my hands and crunching away without much thought. The fact is those behaviours are what made me unhealthy.
The Isagenix products aren’t always delicious, to me the Ionix Supreme has a harsh flavour (hubby loves it) and the Cleanse for Life isn’t exactly a steak but oh the products work!
