You will notice changes right away usually in the form of energy.
Next, you're likely to feel less bloated and eventually, your clothes will start getting loser.
Tips For Using Isagenix For The First Time
The Isagenix plan is simple so you're more likely to stick to it and see results.
Follow these tips to help you have a successful first month.
Measure Yourself When You First Get Started
You are likely to notice your clothes fitting differently but taking measurements gives you the real picture of what's going on with your body.
Weigh Yourself Weekly
Ok, we all want to see the scale move so go ahead and weigh but remember you may notice other changes before the scale moves.
Don't be obsessed and weigh every day because we all know our weight fluctuates daily.
Stick To The Basic Plan
The plan is simple so don't overcomplicate it.
Drink 2 shakes a day and eat 1 healthy meal every day.
Most people will need a healthy snack or two depending on their activity level.

Learn How To Make A Balanced Meal
The graphic below will show you how to plan a balanced meal.
You don't have to be super strict with exact numbers but your healthy meal should contain a balance of protein, carbs, fat, and fiber.
The goal is to create a healthy lifestyle you can maintain that includes a variety of foods so you don't feel deprived.
Don’t Add Anything To Your Shakes
The best way to drink your shake is with only water and ice.
Don't use milk or add fruit during the first month as you will be changing the nutrients and calories which could affect your weight loss.
Save fancy shake recipes for later on during maintenance.
Use The IsaLife App
The Isalife App can be used to help you stay on track much like fitness trackers except this one is specifically for Isagenix users.
Join The IsaBody Challenge
The Isabody challenge will help you stay on track.
You can join the IsaBody Facebook group for moral support plus you'll get other support via email from Isagenix.

Drink Enough Water Each Day
Besides the water in the shake and cleanse drinks, drink ½ your body weight in ounces of water every day!
For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should be drinking 75 ounces of pure water every day.
Symptoms such as headache and fatigue can often be remedied by increasing hydration.
Blend Your Shakes With A Blender
It is important to make your shake in a blender with ice so it will taste the very best.
All shakes taste better when blended properly in a well-made blender.Nutri Ninja Pro Blender
Think how smooth and creamy a milkshake tastes.
You can do the same with your protein shake if you use the right blender.
For best results, use the Isagenix blender or a Nutri Ninja.
You will get the Isagenix blender if you purchase the Premium Pack.
This blender on Amazon is less expensive and works well for basic shakes if you need something to leave at the office or take on vacation.
Beat Detox Symptoms With These Tips
If you have never cleansed, or have had difficulty with other cleansing processes in the past, start the cleanse on a day with low demands, when you can relax, and see how you respond.
If you feel a little off the first day try to hang in there; it's a normal response.
Most often detox symptoms are a sign your body is getting rid of toxins and they will go away.
What To Do If You Get A Headache?
Drink more WATER!
Eight glasses a day is a must during a cleanse.
Avoid aspirin and other over-the-counter pain relievers if you can.
What If You Feel Chilled?
Try some warm peppermint or ginger tea, and/or a warm soak in the tub.
Cut back on the amount of Cleanse for Life the next time you drink it and gradually increase your serving size.
What To Do If you Can't Sleep
- Take your accelerator pills before noon.
- Try some chamomile tea half an hour before bed.
Are Cleanse Days Mandatory For Losing Weight On Isagenix?
You don't have to use the Cleanse for Life or the Ionix (for stress) if you're budget doesn't allow it or if you want to try the shakes first.
I've known many people who just added the Isalean shakes to their daily eating plan and have lost weight.
I lost 5 lbs in the first week just by switching to Isalean shakes from the brand I had been using.
Of course, Cleanse for Life and Ionix may enhance your weight loss but if you can't start them right away or at all you will still get results when you drink a high-quality shake like Isalean and eat healthy meals.
Tips For After Your First Month On Isagenix
If you have been following the basic shake and cleanse day routines but not seeing changes try one of these modifications to see if you can get the scale to move.
Don't try them all at once or you won't know what is working for you.
Pick, what seems like the easiest tweak and try it for a week.
1. Intermittent Fast Every Day
All this means is that you delay your first meal of the day and stop eating at a certain time.
You will determine a window of time you allow yourself to eat each day.
Try a 12-hour eating window first and move to an 8-hour eating window if you can.
2. Change What You Eat For Your Meal
If you have 2 shakes a day and a regular meal then change that meal to mainly protein, fat, and vegetables.
This means you should stop eating bread, rice, and potatoes.
You don't have to do this forever but by avoiding starches you may break a plateau or lose weight faster.
3. Increase Your Activity
If you haven't been exercising then make an attempt to at least walk extra steps every day.
Gradually, increase to longer walks, faster walks, weight lifting, or some other exercise that gets you moving for at least 30 minutes a day.
4. Rethink Your Snacks
You probably fit into one of these categories.
Evaluate what might need to change to give your body a nudge so you can lose weight.
- Add: Perhaps you haven't been eating snacks so adding a snack may be good for you. I know that sounds crazy but if you go too low in calories for too long you will not lose weight.
- Cutback: If you are having several snacks every day you may need to cut back or limit the calories in your snacks.
- Change your snack: Change your snack to only protein to see if things start to shift for you.
5. Try the 11-Day ER Shred
Ok, let's say you've been using the products for a while and you want to change things up a bit you could the ER Shred.
Some Isagenix members have created this way of eating that includes drinking the Isalean Pro Shakes and only eating meat for 11 days.
- Meat for your meals, meat for your snacks, and bone broth on cleanse days.
- Eliminate all sugar, fruit, vegetables, and carbs from your diet for 11 days.
- No collagen elixir or Ionix.
After 11 days, you will evaluate how you feel and start slowly adding in other foods.
6. Try a meal planner app
As much as I hate to meal plan I always do better when I have an idea of what we are eating for the week and it's something I can whip up fast.
One of my favorite planners is Relish.
Not only can you look for recipes but you can create shopping lists, build a personalized calendar from your saved recipes, or choose from our 700+ pre-built weekly meal plans.
