What is Optifast?
Feeling like Skinny Blend is going to be the only one I will be ordering going forward, good-bye Isagenix and shakes. I have had all brands zhou, perfect keto, etc.. Chocolate Vegan Shakeology Flavor: Finally, Medicus took a look into the blood sugar of the participants… Instead of testing a single days blood sugar, which can differ based on what you ate today or what you ate yesterday, the hemoglobin HbA1c looks at their average sugar over 3 months. Even though the Optifast products contain plenty of nutritional value for energy, people on all liquid Optifast diets may experience fatigue and dizziness as well as a lowered inclination towards physical activity. Yes, there are many meal replacement shakes.
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. Personally I find the shakes disguisting otherwise.
Linda — have you ever tried taking a clinically tested supplement like Dietspotlight Burn. Caralluma fimbriata — Caralluma fimbriata is an edible cactus. It was first used by tribal Indians to suppress their hunger and enhance their endurance. Many studies have been done to test the effectiveness of this ingredient, and the results of these studies do confirm that caralluma extract does help suppress appetite.
Many studies have shown that EGCG has the ability to boost how much fat the body burns. One way that EGCG does this is by increasing your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the more calories your body burns throughout the day. Another way EGCG promote fat loss in the body is because it moderates the amount of insulin that your body produces. This is beneficial because it raises your energy levels, while simultaneously reducing fat storage in the body.
Digestive Enzymes — Digestive enzymes are a type of enzyme that breaks down polymeric macromolecules into their smaller building blocks, which in turn facilities their absorption by the body. Basically, they assist your body in breaking down the food you eat and unlock nutrients for your body to absorb.
Whether you consume protein, fat, or carbohydrates, there are digestive enzymes to help break each of these macronutrients down. The older you get, the less digestive enzymes your body tends to produce.
There are 3 main digestive enzymes in Bio X4. These include amylase, lipase, and bromelain. Amylase helps to break down sugars in the body, lipase helps to break down fat, and bromelain breaks down protein while calming down any irritation in the intestine.
Probiotics — The fourth compound that works with the above 3 to promote weight loss are probiotics. Probiotics are friendly bacteria , they assist in balancing your gut flora. Your digestive system is full of bacteria, some being good, and others bad. Good bacteria is beneficial because it aids in digestion and nutrient absorption. Bad bacteria, on the other hand, causes digestive problems and can lead to cravings for sugars, carbs, and other unearthly foods. The standard American diet is full of foods that feed bad bacteria rather than good bacteria.
Bio-X4 contains 12 billion CFUs colony forming units of friendly probiotic bacteria, coming from 5 unique strains. These probiotics rebalance your digestive system, promising the good bacteria to flourish. We checked several of them with deception, and finally came around a real effective Joint Relief supplement.
You can read its review HERE. I want to be more specific than that. I am 71 years old and have gone through a lot of stress and depression, not to mention I deal with Skin Cancer and sadly, for about 3 years I pretty much neglected my body. But have been slowly taking the weight off, with other brands of Whey Protein, and Fat burners, they worked for a time.
Then this year, during my yearly physical, it showed I was border line Type 2 Diabetes. Great taste for only 80 calories especially good with Great taste for only 80 calories especially good with 8 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. This is a god-send if you are trying to lose weight, if you want a pre- or post- workout protein, or if you simply are very busy and need a quick meal. Awesome product I actually ordered this product directly off their website as it was cheaper.
After doing a bit of research online and liking what I was reading, I ventured and got their 2 pack with Vanillla and Chocolate Brownie. I actually am reordering today another 2 pack as I am now on my end of my last tubs. Flavor is great, even a tad bit on the sweet side sometimes and I am a sweets person!!
At night before I go to bed, when I get hungry again or am craving sweets, I like to do a chocolate brownie and it satisfies my craving and hunger. I find the chocolate shakes taste wonderful and not chemical I've used these HMR shakes on several occasions to lose about pounds. First found them as part of a medically supervised weight loss program 20 years ago. I find the chocolate shakes taste wonderful and not chemical. I use 70 Plus because I am lactose-intolerant.
I mix them with milk and a few ice cubes and to me they taste like the Frosty's at Wendy's! I like that they are only calories and I've already lost 8 pounds! Taste great and good weight loss tool, but the new box has got to go I use these shakes to lose weight and to maintain.
I currently use per day. After 25y of blending and shaking, I've come up with the perfect double recipe for me: Strain the water into another shaker bottle. Add two packets and shake. I think that the super-cooled water makes the product taste much better. I've used a blender in the past, but this is soooo much easier and makes a shake that is easier to drink than one that is blended with ice.
I'd have given the product 5 stars except for one thing: So I'm getting g of sugar a day just from these shakes. I'll do a 1 week turbo orders the bars as well to give me that system boost to continue. Using the 2 items for 1 week, I didn't feel like I was missing anything. Cheaper than in Nutrisystem! Very good, good price for the package. Four Stars Pretty good for a shake you mix with water and a little ice.
I have been using Slim Fast for several months. The milk shakes taste good, and they do take away hunger for about 5 hrs. I have been eating one meal a day, usually at dinner, and have put myself on a calorie diet. I have to up the calorie intake when I am very active around the house or in the yard. I have lost 10 lbs.
My goal is to lose 40 lbs. I do count my calories when eating a meal. I do not deprive myself of desserts completely. I will usually eat to small bites of cake, pie, donut or whatever dessert is around. I figure out the calories roughly in those bites and include them into my daily meal. It prevents binge eating. As someone who never eats breakfast and then ends up snacking all night or having a way-too-late mega meal, this is perfect!
I purchased the Creamy Chocolate, and I mix it with 8oz unsweetened almond milk calories total. When I first tried it I was gladly surprised it did not have an artificial taste, it wasn't gritty, and even better, it kept me full well into the afternoon, so I wouldn't end up snacking like crazy of having a large meal later on.
It tastes very good and I enjoyed drinking it It tastes very good and I enjoyed drinking it. The only thing I don't like about it is that, just shaking it in a shaking glass or even with a spoon, I can't get it to dissolve completely.
I'm guessing if you use a blender it would be okay. Terrible with water Terrible with water, better with milk. I found it best to mix right before drinking, gets a little thick is mixed ahead of time. Best tasting shake I've tried so far with no side effects!
I really enjoy this! I have tried just about every meal replacement shake there is and most of them either taste gross or I get really nauseous after drinking them. These are really tasty and I enjoy drinking them. I bought the Dutch Chocolate and the Cookies and Cream.
Both are good but I prefer the Chocolate. It definitely tastes best blended with ice instead of just shaken. The only thing I would say is watch your calorie count when adding stuff to it because it's easy to get out of control without realizing it.
I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 2 scoops Herbalife powder, 2 TBS sugar free jello pudding mix and ice and blend away. It's really thick and creamy with no nasty after taste like some of the protein shakes. I tried Shakeology and immediately loved the meal replacement concept for lunch I tried Shakeology and immediately loved the meal replacement concept for lunch. I told the nutritionist that I was specifically looking for meal-replacement and I don't really have any fitness goals, and he pointed me to this Labrada product.
I originally tried the mixed pack of strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate but I don't love the vanilla flavor and I've never been a huge fan of chocolate. For now, I'm sticking with strawberry only. I mix my strawberry packet with 8 oz of OJ and 4 oz of water in a blender bottle, and it tastes like a smoothie to me I honestly have no problems with the taste of this powder.
Labrada makes some of the better tasting and higher quality meal replacements Labrada makes some of the better tasting and higher quality meal replacements, and this is no exception. I love that I essentially get a refund on this purchase in the form of sample credits. Be sure to check integrity of packets inside I have had these for years. Mix with skim milk and a banana. Last box most of the packets were leaking.
One had a one inch gap at the top. The product all over the box and the other packets. A few small black bugs in the box.
The box was not smashed. Must have been packaged wrong. Ordered a replacement to see if any better. Great nutrition and very tasty I'm impressed with this product because it does not have a lot of sugars in it, it does have 30 grams of protein, and it's tasty enough to be considered "dessert-y".
I'm taking a bunch with me on vacation for at least one meal substitute a day, should help keep me on the straight and narrow clean and lean? I feel less anxious about the effects of a vacation week on my eating plan. I figure this will be a staple in my kitchen. I really like the Chocolate Ice Cream flavor, but the vanilla is definitely good too.
Haven't tried the strawberry yet, not fond of strawberry-flavored anything, even real ice cream. Best Taste and No Aspartame! Building muscle while burning fat became paramount to me while on the Body For Life program several years ago. After being on the program for 9 months, I developed muscle for the first time in my life in addition to losing lots of fat. I attribute a great deal of my success to fueling my body with the right foods Finding the right meal replacement powder MRP for those two meals a day became almost an obsession.
I had four main criteria: Low sugar content very important to me as the more sugar I have, the more I crave it 2. High amounts of vitamins and minerals 3. Good tasting without the Aspartame I have a sensitivity to it 4. Easy to mix--especially on the run I did a lot of research and a lot of testing. I've always been a fan of Labrada products and am Feeling like Skinny Blend is going to be the only one Feeling like Skinny Blend is going to be the only one I will be ordering going forward, good-bye Isagenix and shakes.
Skinny Blend shakes taste good not great , fill me up and give me a burst of energy. When I'm hungry, I can eat and eat and eat!!! I get cravings crazy-intense cravings!!! Shake one up with 6oz of water, twice a day and my cravings are about gone.
FYI, when you buy Skinny Blend, you don't get a shaker cup. Not a problem for me as I have at least 6 shaker cups from my Isagenix and purchases.
I haven't weighed myself--holding off of the scale as I know I have gained weight during the five months I was on Isagenix.
I love skinnyblend strawberry I love skinnyblend strawberry. I've tried to many different low carb protein powders and a lot of them tastes chalky but skinnyblend does not. I usually blend it with a few frozen berries and coconut milk but it's nice even when just blended with water. I don't stir it in a glass as I like it to be a little more "airy" which it only gets in a blender or blender bottle. The best part for me is how well my blood sugars I have been using Skinny Blend for approximately 3 weeks.
I have lost 11 pounds without really adding much exercise to my diet. I use the two shakes per day and a normal meal with my family in the evening. I can honestly say I do not feel hungry at all.
