After 20 Years, Finally, Weight Loss that Works With Isagenix
Location: St. Paul, Minnesota
Was: 220 lbs
Lost: 67 lbs*
Joined Isagenix: October 2012
Breanna B. had been trying to lose weight since the fifth grade. You name it, she tried it: Weight Watchers, AdvoCare, cabbage soup diets, “heart-healthy” and low-fat diets, the Manotech diet, Lean Cuisine – but it wasn’t until Isagenix that she actually saw results 20 years later.
“I really think I wasn’t losing weight because my body was holding on to toxins, and it wasn’t in a place where they could release,” says Breanna. After discovering Isagenix at a health fair, she tried the 30-Day Cleansing and Fat Burning System and lost 20 pounds.*
“I couldn’t believe my weight,” Breanna says. “Every pound I had lost up to then had been fought for, and for this to just drop off my body, I thought ‘This is crazy.’” She has since lost nearly 70 pounds on Isagenix and plans on staying on the 30-Day System™ forever.*
“For me, it’s a way to keep my life under control,” Breanna says. “A cleanse is something I know is so good for my body, and I think, ‘Bye-bye toxins.’ It’s a blessing for me because weight loss is something I’ve always struggled with, and now I have power and control.”
Isagenix Benefits Beyond the Scale: “Even My Skin Glows”
Along with the continuously dropping pounds, Breanna’s journey with Isagenix has powered her workout routines and given her more energy. The social worker ran her first half-marathon since starting Isagenix and now takes kettlebell boot camp classes.
Breanna also says her skin never looks better than on Cleanse Days. “When I do a Cleanse, my skin is really glowy, and it’s a no-makeup day,” Breanna says. “When I cleanse, there have definitely been times when I can feel the toxins evaporating from my body and being pushed out. It’s wicked cool.”
Tips for Staying Motivated and on Track
Even though her diet has changed, Breanna still makes time to do the things she’s always loved – including hanging out with pals at restaurants. She says a strong support system has been key to maintaining her new healthy Isagenix lifestyle.
“I have met many-a-friend at my favorite pizza places, and when I go in, I have the mindset that I’m burning fat,” Breanna says. “I’ll always just get a cup of tea, and all of my friends have been really supportive of the process and have offered to do different activities.”
Breanna’s Tips for Success:
Keep your end goal in mind.
“If there are Doritos in the kitchen, I’ll ask myself, ‘Are those Doritos more powerful than knowing you could reach your end goal?’” Breanna says. “I’m not going to let those Doritos win.” Also, by participating in the IsaBody Challenge®, where she finished in the Top 10 in the Weight Loss category, Breanna says the direction the challenge provided held her accountable and kept her on task. She lost more than 40 pounds in only six months during the challenge.
Add more color to your plate.
“I’ve been a lifelong vegetarian, so I’ve always eaten differently than most people,” Breanna says. “Now, I definitely eat less pastas and heavier foods, and moved more towards eating lots of color on my plate — lots of greens, kale and peppers, instead of potatoes and pasta.”
Share your story.
When you tell others about your results and what got you there, you’re increasing your network of supporters while inspiring others, Breanna says. “I try to live my life to be courageous because you never know who’s watching you,” Breanna says. “When you have courage, I feel like people take inspiration from that.”

*Weight loss should not be considered typical. In a study performed in 2012 by University of Illinois at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 9 pounds with an average of 2 pounds of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix system. The subjects also had a greater level of adherence and had more consistent weight loss from week to week compared to subjects on a traditional diet.
