Default ********...

Anyone heard of it??? A football coach from my old high school is selling it--he is in his upper 50's and says he not only lost weight but feels better....

Jules, the topic of ******** has come up many times in this forum. Unfortunately, it quickly attracts ******** sales reps and we've had to close or delete many threads because of it. It is a program with a HIGH emphasis on sales. They sell a lot of products that are unnecessary, overpriced, and not supported by science. Their shakes are no more effective than SlimFast, which is available everywhere at a fraction of the cost.

******** products have even made the infamous "Slim Chance Awards" for worst diet products. That ought to say a lot about the company.

Default Don't waste your money!

I spent 350$ Canadian this fall on the start up of the cleanse program..... I was ill on the "clease" product. I did the cleanse 1xweek..... and by the second week after throwing up on it for the second week in a row..... I tried it by the 3rd week.... and couldn't even get the stuff in me!!!!!!!I threw in the towel...... Definately not worth it.... There is no quick fix......
If you need to rid yourself of toxins..... drink lots of water..... eat lots of fruits and veggies that make you "go" and that is really all you can do.... Eat clean and balance your carbs, proteins, fats and sugars..... and things will improve for you!
Isogenix isn't worth your time.... Just a money making industry that people are doing as a pyramid thing!!!!!!!!

Nineteen - I would respectfully disagree although I don't think Slimfast is optimal, I think ******** shakes are no different than other shakes on the market. If you go to GNC, you will find lots of similar shakes.

I am glad that you have found success with ******** but I tried their shakes, I looked at their ingredients and was not happy with their ingredients. My hypoglycemia was majorly activated by their shakes.

Marie - ******** uses a pyrmid scheme to sell their products so you have to find someone who sells it. If you google it, you will find many people who would happily sell it to you.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.

well I bought the ******** for a 30 day supply and I have to admit the shakes were good

But I have to say Yeah you will lose weight you have a shake then lunch of 600 calories and then another shake and once a week you fast but after doing it WHO wouldnt lose weight having possibly 1000 calories??

I can kind of compare it to slim fast to a point The only way you cant is you pay 350 for it and thats in the back of your mind and you will most likely stay on this cleanse Tho I have to say it never sent me to the bathroom one time matter of fact I had to drink prune juice to go!

I was on it for a total of 2 weeks and lost 10 lbs But I truly believe if i stuck to slim fast I would lose about the same amount! JMHO

I tried the 9 days ******** program and for me it didn't really work. I figured anyone could lose weight if they weren't eating for 4 out of the 9 days. The cleanse stuff made me gag. I did enjoy the shakes and I wasn't hungry but I don't think it worked for me. I can see how it might initally take the weight off but it almost seems like youve got to stick with it the rest of your life to actually keep it off. But on the other hand I have seen quite a few positive results and I'm happy for those people, I guess I'm just not one of them.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
