Isagenix 9 Day Cleanse and Fat Burning System – Review and Final Results

I finished my cleanse on Sunday night.  For all the details on the first 5 days, go read THIS blog post.

The entire week last week were all shake days up until Saturday.  Saturday and Sunday were the last two cleanse days.

The shake days were pretty uneventful.  I had lots of energy, felt great and didn’t ever feel lethargic, tired, weak, etc.

I did choose NOT to run the 6 mile race on Thursday that I had signed up for but that wasn’t really because of the cleanse.  It was a combination of LOTS of things.  I felt it was the best decision for my husband and I so we went with it.  We are thankful we did.

I could totally do the shake days for a 30 day cleanse.  That’s how easy it was.  I enjoyed not having to think about what to eat for breakfast and lunch.  Then, at dinner time, I just kept my meals around 400-600 calories.  That’s it.  Easy Peasy.

The cleanse days are a little harder.  No food at all.  Just a Cleanse Drink and small snacks.  I have done deep cleanses before so I could handle the two days with relative ease.  If this were my first time cleansing, it would have been more difficult.

I can’t believe I forgot to tell you about these IsaDelight Plus chocolates.

IsaDelight Plus by Isagenix

I am so thankful that Shannon sent me these with the cleanse.  They saved my sweet tooth.  They are made with green tea and give you a little boost and also give you that chocolate fix.  Plus, they are super delicious!  These made the 11 days much more bearable!

Now, I know what you all want.  The results.  Before I give you stats, let me tell you how I FEEL because we all know that is more important than any number on a scale!

I feel amazing!

I feel thinner than I have since I got to 100 pounds down.  My clothes all fit great!  I put on a pair of pajamas that were too snug at Christmas and they fit perfectly!  I can tell I lost inches and I know I lost pounds.  Now, down to the numbers:

And my weight on Monday morning:

Weight after Finishing Isagenix 9 Day Cleanse

BAM!  11.8 pounds down in 11 days.  I will take it!

Now for the measurements:

  • Neck:  Down 1/4 inch
  • Arms:  Up 1 inch (Muscle…)
  • Chest:  Down 1 1/2 inches
  • Abdomen:  Down 4 1/4 inches (HOLY CRAP!)
  • Hips:  Down 2 inches
  • Thigh:  Down 3/4 inches

Total Inches Lost:  8 3/4 inches!

Now, for the photo:

Before and After Isagenix 9 Day Cleanse

I know the pictures are a little different because for some reason my pants were pulled higher in the after photo.  However, I can see more definition in my belly which is where I need more definition.  Also, my arms look smaller and I can tell in my neck too!

Would I do it again?  In a heartbeat.  Would I recommend it to others?  Yes!  Is it expensive?  Yes.  Is it worth it?  As long as the weight stays off.  I will keep you updated!

Now, the big question, “How do you plan to keep the weight off now that the cleanse is over?”  I have asked that question to myself also.  I am going to go immediately back to counting Weight Watchers points plus.  I am also going to add some cardio in along with Crossfit.  Even if it is just a walk around the hood at night with the hubs and the dog.  Hopefully counting points strictly and putting in a little extra cardio will help keep those pounds off and continue to lose even more!

Would you ever try a cleanse or a detox?  What if the price was more reasonable?

  • MARY E

    I tried to do this cleanse & it was my first time trying a cleanse…well, I didn’t make it 1/2 way… & I hate feeling like a failure at this so I think I’m going to try it again…maybe purchase the chocolate snacks (chocolate makes everything easier). I do wish it was not so expensive. I have been doing my healthier eating plan though, so I have to stay positive & I enjoy reading your encouraging words!

    • Jacky Bautista

      Hi Mary,
      I highly recommend the WellnessPro detox supplement, really easy and not harsh on your stomach at all!

  • Kristi K

    Great job! That’s amazing! I am very interested in whether the weight stayed off when you went back to counting points.

  • Jacky Bautista

    Have you ever tried any of the WellnessPro products? They have a natural detox supplement that I really like and their shakes are only 2 points!

  • Sarah

    I’m doing the Isagenix 9 day cleanse right now (on day 4 and already down 9.5 lbs). I’m wondering how much of it came back on after because it was just water weight that was lost? I’m loving the results so far, but I’m skeptical til the end.

    • Jennifer Swafford

      I felt the exact same way, Sarah. I kept all of the weight off except the last two pounds until I stopped following the Weight Watchers plan. Of course, as soon as I started to eat bad things, the weight slowly came back on. My advice is to keep yourself super strict afterwards and you will keep it off! I can’t wait to hear your final results!

  • Mandi

    Hi, just wanted to see if you were able to keep the weight off after you did this cleanse? Do you still feel it is something worth trying?

    • Jennifer Swafford

      I would do it again in a heartbeat. I kept the weight off for a few months until I started eating badly due to stress. The weight did stay off…it was NOT water weight!

  • DB1949

    My daughter just did a 7 day cleanse with GNC totally lean and dropped 14 lbs for under $ 40…I keep reading through the Isagenix site looking for what value added you get for the price difference, plus the convenience of going into a store or gym and grabbing what you need is a big plus…My daughter has kept the weight off plus is now 5 weeks later and down 26 lbs, total she does exercise 3 days a week, is mid thirties with 3 very active children, plus uses nutritionist who monitors vitamin supplements….

  • Steph

    Hey I know this is an old post but I wanted to thank you for writing! I am on WW right now, and my goal is to once I get down to 190 to reward myself with the 9 day cleanse :) Glad to hear the weight stayed off when you went back to counting points.. Hope all is well!
