Foods to Enjoy & Avoid

What makes Isagenix so uniquely effective is how it’s NOT a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach and NOT a diet but a Lifestyle. This is the difference between living a lifestyle that is sustainable versus yo-yoing with a diet. Isagenix is a Healthy Balanced Lifestyle with “smarter choices” NOT a Restrictive Diet of “can’t ever have this and can’t ever have that”. Some foods make better choices than others depending upon various factors including personal goals and nutrient timing, especially when exercise is part of your overall plan. This section contains the Do’s and Don’t that we have found most effective. By most effective I mean what helps people:

a) stick to the program,
b) have a great experience, &
c) achieve their goals.

We approach it as being a “lifestyle” that can be maintained for the longer term. If the program becomes too restrictive then it’s no longer a lifestyle with choices but a diet that feels like a sentence. We always start our clients with following the program with minimal alteration to the basics as possible. But sometimes this does not work for everyone. I’d rather have someone be able to stick to their program with some modifications as needed versus giving up. This is why the coaching is so important.
