Isagenix 9 Day Cleanse Reviews (Not A Full On Cleanse)
Isagenix is a popular cleansing and fat burning system. It involves taking supplements, drinking shakes and juices, while eating healthy meals and snacks.
The shakes and snacks are available in a variety of flavors.
This program is available in both a 9 day and 30-day options. I recommend the 9-day program to start. At least that is what I decided to try. Better to start out small and see if you like it, before going with the much more expensive commitment to the 30-day plan.
Let’s get started with my 9 day Isagenix cleanse review.
When evaluating any cleanse these are the top 3 factors I look at:
- Most important to me is the results. Did it work? How much weight did I lose? How do I feel afterward? Were there any side effects?
- How hard was the program? Did I hate my life the whole time?
- Was it worth the cost? I don’t mind paying a high price for something as long as I am getting a good value for my money.
The shake mix is available in 4 different flavors. These include chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and black sesame. They are soy and gluten free, which is nice if that is something you need to avoid.
The cleanse for life juice only comes in berry flavor but is available in liquid or powder form.
The snack wafers come in vanilla, chocolate, and a dairy free berry option.
The Natural Accelerator supplements are stimulant free. They include ingredients such as cayenne, green tea, cinnamon, and ginseng.
These supplements are intended to help reduce appetite and boost your metabolism.
The Isagenix 9 day cleanse starts with a 2 day prepping period, so in total it lasts 11 days.
On shake days, you replace 2 of your meals with shakes. Then have a healthy, high-fiber, low-fat lunch that is between 400 and 600 calories. They provide you with a helpful chart showing a number of meal options, in case your not sure what that looks like. You can also have between 3 and 6 snacks on these days depending on their size. (3 at 100 calories, or 6 at 50 calories each)
Again, they provide a helpful list of snack options you can eat, or you can stick to the snack wafers.
There are 2 cleanse days where you don’t have any meals or shakes. You only drink the cleansing juice, but you do also get to have snacks on the cleanse days. So your not going to starve.
Pro and Cons
I went with the creamy Dutch chocolate flavor and it was very chocolaty. I made the shakes in my blender with ice and some water and they were pretty good.
I'm not saying that is a good or bad thing; it just depends on what you are looking for.
I liked that you could eat real food on this program. As long as you follow their guidelines and keep within the 400-600 calorie range. I always had a shake for breakfast, and then for lunch or dinner, depending on my schedule that day.
I also liked the flexibility of eating the wafers as snacks when it was more convenient than finding other healthy snacks. Sometimes I’m lazy and it is a good idea to have a snack right at my fingertips to avoid eating something I'll regret later.
I managed to lose 9 pounds over the 11 days and felt pretty good the whole time.
Even on the cleanse days I wasn’t starving, which was great. You get to have regular snacks, which help keep you from crashing.
I did not experience any side effects, which is always a good thing. I'm not sure I would want to try the 30 day plan, but I liked the isagenix 9 day cleanse. It wasn’t nearly as hard to stick to as other cleanses where you are only drinking juice all day.
If you are looking for more of a health cleanse, and not as concerned about losing weight, then there might be other better options for your goals.
You could probably make your own protein shakes and save a little money, but this was a pretty convenient and easy program to follow.
I have to say as far as cleanses go, this was a pretty good experience, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to lose a few pounds.
I hope you found my Isagenix cleanse review helpful. If you are looking for a way to jump-start your weight loss, this might be worth a try.
