Meet Tracey. Like many of you, Tracey set out to lose some weight. She tried dieting, it didn’t work. She took it one step further and hired a dietitian. Together, they tried increasing her calorie intake, decreasing her calorie intake but nothing seemed to help Tracey meet her goals. Tracey heard about Isagenix from her dietitian and reached out for help. She started with the 30 Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System.
As of day 28 of her 30 day program, Tracey is down a total of nine pounds. More importantly than the number on the scale is that she has also lost 10 inches around her abdomen and her seat! Tracey commented: “I feel great and love my new mindset around eating and the energy I have!”
Since starting the 30 day program, people have taken notice to Tracey’s new way of being (energetic) and began to ask her what she has been doing differently. All Tracey had to do was share her success story and soon friends became interested in trying Isagenix in order to reach their health goals. Now, Tracey’s health quest has turned into a new business opportunity and as a result of her friends taking interest she is well on her way to getting her product paid for.
Get healthy! Join the movement! It’s as easy as two plus two. Watch this video clip to learn how Isagenix can become a reality for you!
If you’re doing all the right things and still struggling to lose weight, here are five things that could be holding you back.
- Not sleeping enough – Lack of sleep makes it more difficult for your body to metabolize carbohydrates. Also when you’re tired, you’re more likely to make poor food and drink choices for a quick burst of energy.
- Not managing the stresses of life – Cortisol is a hormone that helps your body become even more effective at producing glucose from proteins, and is designed to help quickly increase your body’s energy in times of stress. But excess cortisol may stimulate glucose production. This excess glucose then typically is converted into fat, ending up as stored fat.
- Not eating real food – Pesticides and chemicals in processed foods dramatically increase your body’s toxic load. Your liver removes toxins from the body, but when there are more toxins than your liver can handle, it goes into overdrive to get its job done. When your liver spends all of its time removing toxins from your body, it can’t do its part in helping you burn calories. If you eat the same number of calories from “clean” foods (fresh, unprocessed and preferably organic), your metabolism will be much more efficient.
- An unhealthy relationship with alcohol – It’s probably not a surprise that drinking alcohol can make you hungry. That’s because alcohol lowers your blood sugar. Alcohol not only increases your appetite, but it adds calories to your diet.
- Not eating enough or skipping meals – It’s tempting to think that the less you eat, the more weight you’ll lose. But if you try to lose weight by skipping meals or dramatically restricting calories, you will probably gain weight in long run. When you don’t eat enough, your body goes into starvation mode and begins to wonder where your next meal is coming from. Your metabolism slows down to a crawl in an effort to make the most out of each calorie. If you eat six small meals a day instead of three large ones, your metabolism will be working all day at maximum capacity.

For adults with weight loss goals, breakfast is the single most important meal. When you consume healthy food within half an hour of waking up, it increases your metabolic rate (how fast you burn calories) and kick starts your body into gear, telling it what to expect the rest of the day. When you don’t receive early morning fuel, your body doesn’t process your next meal as quickly. Since it didn’t get food in the morning, it will try to hold onto the afternoon meal as long as possible — instead of burning it right away.Breakfast is an important meal in your child’s day as well. Studies show children who eat breakfast have more energy, perform better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day.
