      My name is Mary and last year I was 36 lbs. over weight, tired, had pains in my knees and feet, didn’t sleep well, and had terrible indigestion & a double chin!I had tried every diet and excercise program and ate really well but could not get the weight off.

       I saw a friend of mine, Lil, that shared with me how she was looking and feeling so much younger and slimmer and full of energy.I thought she had gotten a facelift and liposuction! Really! She told me she was doing this really simple program called Isagenix! I had never heard of it. She said it was a Nutritional Cleansing program. Well my first thought was that it was a colon cleanse! But I was wrong. She said that it gave you super nutrients and cleansed everycell in the body and removed toxins and impurities genlty and it didn’t send you to the bathroom! Plus it was organic!I needed something that would not interfere with my Interior Design business daily.
      Anyway, she invited me to see a presentation at a Country Club near me. Everyone there was having so much fun that I thought they certainly couldn’t be talking about weight loss and fat burning but they were. There must have been 50 people with smiles and laughing.I thought, they must know something I don’t know!They did and they showed me that night!
      I actually started a 30 day Isagenix program 3 days later , on Feb 1st ,08 and within 3 days lost my cravings for cheese, coffee and soda and started feeling great. I got a great coach too, my friend Lil, and online coaching daily as well!*I lost 11 lbs. in the first 15days,* felt like I was plugged into a light socket, slept great for the first time in years, had a ton of mental energy too!
      I lost a total of 36 lbs. by my goal wihich was my anniversary on May 31st! Plus, I have kept it off,and it is over a year later. I feel and look younger and I no longer have a double chin!
      Now my 17 year old daughter drinks the Choc. or vanilla(adds fruit too) shakes for breakfast for nutrition and has a bar in the afternoon before golf, swim or cheering.Her teachers comment on her alertness at school and her grades have improved. Plus she no longer drinks SODAS!
      My husband now has lost 16 lbs on a 30 day day program too! His blood work from his Interest has been remarkable too!All of our friends are asking us how we did this.He has so much more energy too! Now we do so many more things together and are not tired after work.
      I now have a website and coach people how to do this! www.henryandassoc.isagenix.com and I am on facebook as well.
      You can write me and ask anything you want I would love to share my seret with you!My friends all call me the “Pink Bunny“!Mary Henry

        • Hi Neicy,
          In order to buy wholesale you have to pay a one time a year fee of $39 (sort of like a Cosco account). You can order what ever you want and it depends on how much weight you want to lose and how quickly. You order online and it ships to you UPS. I went on a 30 day program with autoship of every 30 days but changed my products to whatever I wanted. I also did what is called a “bootcamp program” which is the 9 day program within my 30 day program to jumpstart my weight loss but remain on the products to continue the weightloss to what I wanted. I origanly thought I only needed to lose 18 lbs. but once I reached that i thought , hey I can go to 20, then it ws 25 then it was 30 then it was to 36! I now weigh less than before my kids were born,and have turned that fat into lean muscle, that is also an advantage of this program. Fat doesn’t become flabby skin!No matter if you lose 200lbs! See Testimonials on my website! Why don’t you go to either www.drspeaksout.com and watch the 8 min. video first, and you can go to my website at www.henryandassoc.isagenix.com
          The prices shown are retail on website but I will be glad to give you prices once you see what you might want to do. I can also show you how to pay for your products as well or make money, but first you just have to see if it is for you. You can always call  me on my cell, but please watch the videos first! if you want to lose under 10 lbs it is roughly $5 a day and if you want to lose more than 10 it is about $8.25 a day, that replaces 2 meals, gives you everything and 1 day a week easy cleanse program (not a fast!)Mary

          Hi. I know how you feel! I felt the same way. I did my do dilegence and really looked at the website and aked people who were on it to share with me!
          www.henryandassoc.isagenix.net
          but I also looked at this short video as well, it is by Dr. Becky Natrajan, who is a certified Gastroenterologist.It is www.drspeaksout.com She is on the medical board alsong with many other Doctors. One is Dr. Bill Wheeler. He was the Chief Science Doctor for the last 2 Presidents of the US, also for the 2002 and 2004 Olympic teams, he is an advisor to Brett Farve, The Mavericks, Michael Jordon to name a few athelets. He and the other Doctors will answer your questions at drquestions@isagenix.net
          Another product, Our electrolight drink, called Want More Energy(WME)in Orange, Citrus and Grape was originally developed for Evander Hollyfield when he went and WON the Worlds HeavyWeight boxing championship. It passes all drug requirements for pro athelets.It is organic minerals, enzymes, choline, B Vitamins and THe CORRECT Sodium to Potassium ratio, sweetend with Stevia, only 35 calories, you just pour the indiv. packet into your water bottle and shake. You can take it anywhere! Childern as young a 2 can use many of the products for great nutrition and health, but also people that are medically challenged can,(our Founder was a diabetic so he wanted them to be able to use our programs) but we do customized programs specific to each individual. Everything is organic and natural. There is no regular sugar or aspirtame or artificail sweetners or stimulants of any kind.Our Protien is Pharmicutlical grade and undenatured, that means low heat, not like most that use high heat to kill undesirable low grade protien from American cows ours is from(From New Zealand, only organic) and has live enzymes and pro and pre biotics. Is this too much info? This is in our Shakes, soups and bars.They are all gluten, barley and wheat free!
          You can always call my cell after you have looked at the info and want to talk in person!It really simplifies life too!I am a “foody” so it had to come up to my standards and it has!! Mary

        • sorry but anything with sweetners, any of them, i have read and has been in the news, are not good in long term for the body. At least for anyone with AI disorders.

        • 007pouty,
          I am so sorry to hear that you have this. I do not know the answer I am not a doctor. However, why don’t you email our Doctors and ask them? Email: drquestions@isagenix.net
          You should hear back within 24 hours or less.
          Our programs have meal replacements like Chocolate and vanilla shakes that are highly digestible and great for people who have compromosed digestive systems but I do not know specifically about yours. They are organic. Have no Gluten, barley or wheat! They have live enzymes in them! They have Pro and Prebiotics too! They only have 235 calories. They are a formulated balance of 30 carbs, 30 Fat(good fats) and 40 Protien. they are 99.9% lactose free and from organic whey so it is highly digestible. Most lactose intolerant individuals can drink them. They have all the Amino Acids, 70 minerals that will help you in absorbing nutritents, vitamins, and much much more. You can actually pull up all the ingredients per product on my website by going to a product, clicking on it directly. It will give you the info. I can also have you go to a presentaion in your home town. They are weekly in many cities and states.My suggestion is to also, have your Doctor go to the website and defintley see www.drspeaksout.com by Dr. Becky Natrajan. I can always give your Doctor her direct phone number or email. He can also email the same email addres I gave you. Many people who are really medically challenged,or have maybe had a gastric bypass, Diabetes,thyroid,diverticulosois, problemsetc, drink 1/2 shake at a time instead of a whole one with 2 ounces of Cleanse drink in it then 1hour later do the same thing. I hope this helps.fitandlean07

        • neicy,
          I know how you feel. I had a hard time becuase it is such a very large website($20 million Dollars to be exact!)So you think it woudl be easier. But they want you to contact one of us so we can get a take on your goals, and what you really neeed. It has prices they are just retail on the site. In fact I agree they are hard to find on the website but they are under products and pricing.
          Did you see my email and contact number on my website profile? Do you want to contact me or me you?
          Also. Did you watch the video? That is super important.
          Which program did you like on the website or could you decide?
          What is your goal maybe that way I can help.,Under 10lbs? over 20 Lbs.? Over 50 Lbs. ? Over 100Lbs? That way I can tell you what you would need to do.Do you want to just get Toxins and Impurities out? Do you travel alot and need convenient packaging? Do you drink lots of soda, eat high Carbs, smoke, drink much? all of those things are important to know and they are private so you might want to just connect with me.
          Hope that helps.Mary

        • It doesn’t have sweetners. Agave is a plant and so is Stevia.They both have been used in other cultures in Asia,India and China, etc for over thousands of years. If you check out those two you will find no adverse reactions. They are not man made. Just extracted from a plant . They have low glycemic values.

        • No you can buy individual products. You can by the for Retail off my site but I suggest to buy them at wholesale! You have to set up an account and it is $39 for a year. It will give you your own website that you order from at no charge and daily advise and coaching if you want. There is also a 100% money back guarentee on everything you order. No questions asked.
          You can also have a home based business and write off all your products on your taxes too!
          On my website if you are interested in the business part go to Isavideos(top right tab) and check out any that have to do with it. The video that comes up on my website tells you about the products and what they do. It is called Cleansed for Life.
          www.isastory.com
          www.recessionmyths.com
          are good ones.
          For testimonials on weight loss

        • It’s very expensive.  To get started, it’s something like $300 for just one month. I have a gal that’s in my Mastermind group that’s told me all about it and it sounds wonderful, but understands that even at a distributor’s price, it’s costly. Sorry!

        • lipsdiva,
          If you look at that price you do probably think it costs a lot. However, It comes out that you are not only replacing 2 meals a day(less than $3 each x 2 =$6) with this but you are getting the Organic Nutrient rich cleanse program( 2 full days of  cleansing) and daily  stress adaptagen drink program all for less than $9 a day.It gives you all of your minerals, amino acids, vitamins, protiens,fiber, antioxidants, etc, etc every day. If you go to Starbucks for coffee you are already spending 1/2 of that ! I don’t know about what all you want to achieve but It has been worth every penny to me to have my health, lose a great deal of fat and pounds, lose 4 dress sizes and have no more night sweats or hot flashes and get tons of energy!! 17,000 people decided to do this in March and of those 17,000 most decided to stay on their program and they shared it with 11,000 people so far this month of April and it is just the 15th. There is a 100% money back guarentee! I also coach people for free but there is free online coaching daily by email and free suport too. Go to www.halloffame.com for testimonials

        • No you cannot write this off if you are just doing it as a program. However, if you do this as a business and make more than $600 a year you can right off 100% of your Autoship program which are your products because in order to do this as a business you have to be on autoship. They just happen to be food!You can ask a CPA that has Network experience on taxes.So, when I order my products I write them off , before I started this program I spent over $500 a month on groceries and nothing was a right off! Also, my grocery bills, etc have gone way way down because I no longer fill my pantry and refrigerator with junk or things I should not eat. Also, if I have people over to see our programs all the things I buy are tax deductable (50%)At first my family was upset that I didn’t buy all the old things for frig and pantry , then they saw what a change it made in my body, spirit and moods and they started doing programs or products, like my family drinks the shakes as breakfast. they each make their own kind, my husband likes vanilla with fruits in it, my daughter likes chocolate with some peanut butter in it(tastes like a Reeces PNTbutter cup) and I like mine with extra dk.choc powder and Espresso powder!We add extra Protien if we are excercising for faster weight loss and muscle building.

        • Susan, The programs and all products are all organic and have no stimulants,. There is no Ephedra, Caffiene,artificail sweetners, nothing that can cause side effects. However, if you are pregnant you should not do a cleanse day, and you should take the Childrens vitamins instead of the womens, but can do everything else. If you are insulin dependant you have a special program under Dr’s supervision.The only pills in our program are vitamins, Anti oxidants, Accelerator Capsules with natural Ingredients and Isa Flush with Magnesium and Bentonite and crushed walnut. That is it . Everything else is a super food or nutrient in a canister or bottle and organic.

        • Hi Mary! Congratulations on your weight loss. I just have to say that I could not live without my Isagenix nutritionals. I am also an Isagenix distributor and became one after the amazing results with my health (the weight loss was a total surprise). I have never been healthier or had more energy, mental clarity, deeper sleeps, amazing skin, hair and nails. Anyway, I jsut want to say congratulations again. By the way, have you had a chance to check out the AMAZING results by the very young gal with downs syndrome? Her results are amazing and represents exactly why we are so passionate about this amazing system. Anyway, you can do a search at YouTube under Angela’s Transformation. I wish much continued success and hope to meet you in person some day. Thank you for being a part of making a difference in the lives of others.

        • Well, the key to proper weight loss is to eat right and try and be active.

          I am so glad you lost the weight and love it! Just make sure you do not stop it, as the weight will most likely come back.

          Remember, to make pills, shakes, etc... they process all of it. Stevia, splenda, etc is processed using bleach. how it gets white. I did my research on this as with my MS, I have to eat real food and not processed anything.

          Again, sorry to be the party pooper, but somethings can hurt more than help.

        • Unfortunately, it’s our real food that is killing us as our foods are nutritionally bankrupt. I don’t know Mztracy, all I know is, despite eating healthy and exercising, and doing all the right things, including eating organic, I simply was struggling on a day to day basis with both my weight and more importantly with my health. There are so many women that have the same struggles. I feel extremely blessed that I no longer take any “written dr suggestions” for all the health issues I used to have and I am healthier and happier than I’ve been in years. So I’m simply saying this is what worked for me (and Mary). And I have kept the weight off for 4 years. I am sorry to hear about your MS but I am SO happy that you have found what works for you as well. I wish you much continued success.
