I'm not a dieter. Never have been. I just think there are better alternatives (especially mentally) than forcing yourself to try to loose weight. Baby Skibbles is 4 1/2 months now and I hadn't really done anything to loose the weight, but realized I was at a stand still and in order to loose my remaining weight I needed a change. I had recently started baby sitting a few days a week, so I needed something that was quick and didn't take up a lot of my time (I'm a busy mom you know). The mom I was babysitting for introduced me to Isagenix. She herself had lost a significant about of weight and I was intrigued that it was a very natural product line.
Now, I had done meal replacements before, but this time I wanted something different. I have really been trying to watch what I consume since everything I put in me, the baby gets as well. Not only that, but many products on the market aren't even recommended for nursing moms, so I was already limited. I learned that Isagenix has numerous products safe* for nursing moms and because of that, I knew I had to give it a try.
(IsaLean Bars, IsaLean Shakes, IsaLean Pro, IsaPro, IsaCrunch, and Fiber Pro are the 6 products Isagenix offers that are considered safe* for nursing moms).
The first morning I had a chocolate shake. It's much creamier than what I was used to in the past but I loved it. It was almost like a milkshake. I was so happy with the taste, thickness, and overall quality of the shake. I noticed that I got hungry about 2 hrs later so the next morning I put a tablespoon of peanut butter with the shake and it was awesome for curbing my hunger. Adding fruits would also be great as well! The last day I tried the vanilla flavor and it literally had an almost ice creamy quality which was awesome. I usually despise vanilla shakes; however, this one was just amazing.
3 of the mornings I had a meal replacement bar. The 3 flavors were: Chocolate peanut butter, Chocolate crisp, and oatmeal raisin. The chocolate peanut butter was my favorite, but the oatmeal raisin was so nice for breakfast. I was surprised at how tasty they were. Other meal replacement bars that I've had in the past leave a chalky taste in my mouth or are just plain gross, but these actually taste like real food & are delicious. They kept me full. I actually prefer the bars over the shakes because I literally can just open it and go and as a busy mom I need something that's fast and nutritional.
So let's get to what you really are dying to know! Did Isagenix work for me? Yes! In 7 days, I lost 2 pounds and even better, I lost 2 inches! I only replaced one meal a day and while I tried my best to eat healthy for the rest of my meals and snacks, I did have a few "oops". I definitely think that I could have lost more had I replaced two meals a day and not had those "oops" moments. I absolutely love everything about these products.
