Isagenix Savory Snacking for Cleanse Days

Snack Your Way to Better Weight Management

By now you’ve probably heard about our 2017 Product in the Spotlight as well as the announcement of the new White Cheddar Whey Thins™ flavor. This delicious new flavor joins the rest of the savory Whey Thins family of Sour Cream & Chive and Barbecue. This family of protein-packed snacks offers a delicious way to support your healthy lifestyle and weight-management journey.

Whey Thins come in 100-calorie packs and are sure to help satisfy cravings without the overload of calories. The combination of high-quality protein, good fats, and carbohydrates support weight-loss efforts and muscle maintenance while helping you stick to your ultimate health goals.

Snacking the Right ‘Whey’

Choosing the right snacks can make or break seeing all those hard-earned results, which is why we want to ensure we set you up with the right tools to snack smarter. When snacking, it is important to keep in mind that what you put in your body should be nourishing, satiating, and filling all at the same time – especially on Cleanse Days. With an average of 18 chips per bag, Whey Thins can be used as an effective tool. When your body needs a little nourishment, reach for your favorite flavor of Whey Thins – you can even spread them out throughout the day, instead of consuming the entire bag in one sitting. This would allow you to enjoy the savory goodness throughout your Cleanse Day.

 

The Purpose of Cleanse Days

Cleanse Days are a foundation of the Isagenix System. Cleanse Days combine intermittent fasting with nutritional support for the body, supplemented by Cleanse for Life® (offered in both powder and liquid form).

With the recent inclusion of Whey Thins as an approved Cleanse Day snack, Isagenix is increasing options to support Customers on their health journeys! Giving our Customers nutritious options is something we strive for, because we understand that not one person cleanses like the other. Remember to reach for Whey Thins “in substitution for” and not “in addition to” your previous or current Cleanse Day approved snack.

When cleansing, it is also important to know your limitations. Do not deep cleanse on more than two consecutive days or more than four days in a month. When you feel like you need something to get you through a hunger hump, it is important you listen to your body.

Losing weight can be a challenge.

Ways to Stay Healthy All Year long

Losing weight can be a challenge. Losing weight and maintaining those results can be even more challenging.

According to the International Journal of Obesity, among overweight and obese adults, only 17 percent of those who lost at least 10 percent of their initial body weight were able to successfully keep the weight off. Moreover, those who lost a greater percentage of their initial body weight were even less likely to keep the weight off.

Do you find yourself falling into this trap? Read on for some helpful strategies on sustaining your summer weight-loss plan.

Maintenance Tips

Isagenix products are a great starting point to help you succeed in your weight-management journey. We’ve also come up with a few strategies for keeping up your healthy lifestyle. After all, you worked so hard to get here.

1. Develop Healthy Habits: At the start of any successful exercise routine and nutrition plan, developing healthy habits is key. Even before you have reached your weight-loss goals, you will need to start making good habits early on. This will make weight management much easier, especially when it comes to sticking to the best dietary choices. One key to success is ensuring that you have a high-protein intake both during and after your weight-loss periods. This will help you maintain lean muscle, and in turn, burn more fat.

2. Set Firm Goals: It is important to establish goals. You can’t reach a goal if you don’t actually have one. When it comes to maintaining your body weight, keep that goal in mind and hold yourself accountable for staying within that range.

Don’t fall into the guilt trap! Not everyone can follow the system perfectly all the time, and that’s okay! If you slip up occasionally, don’t let it sabotage your results or make you quit. Get back on track when you can, and continue to work toward becoming your best you.

3. Customize Your Diet to Fit Your Lifestyle: It’s important to have flexibility when you are in maintenance mode.

An Isagenix System with Shake and Cleanse Days is still a great way to go, especially with a few modifications. While a normal 30-Day System calls for approximately 1,200 daily calories, you will want to up this to about 1,500 calories (give or take, depending on size, gender, etc.).

The key to successful weight loss and management is to find the right balance that works for you personally. Fun times, such as vacations, birthdays, and evenings out, will always come up. It’s completely fine to enjoy these times! Try to keep your overall diet healthy and practical for your lifestyle. Shake and Cleanse Days are a great tool to fall back on when you start to feel you aren’t maintaining as well as you’d like. During maintenance mode, one to two shakes per day and up to four Cleanse Days per month (no more than two back-to-back) is ideal.

4. Exercise: Exercise and nutrition go hand in hand. Exercising is a great way to break through weight-loss plateaus and help you manage your weight, even after you’ve reached your weight-loss goals. Whether you prefer a leisurely walk around the block, an intense weight-lifting workout, or something in between, any exercise is great!

Once you’ve hit your goal weight, it’s great to continue building muscle mass with exercise such as resistance training. But what if you don’t want to build muscle and simply want to lose fat? In actuality, you can’t have one without the other. Muscle burns fat and is vital for weight management and keeping your metabolism up. The best way to lose the fat is to build lean muscle with exercise and eating the right amount of protein.
