Isagenix Shake Review

Isagenix Isalean Meal Replacement Shake Review Rating

have been getting more and more popular. I personally had no idea why, since I’d never tried that meal replacement shake before. So I thought it was about time that I did. Here’s my review.


You can buy a tub of Isagenix for about 40 bucks. That’ll get you 14 servings, which is roughly $2.85 a shake. That price isn’t terrible, but it’s not that great either. I would say it’s about middle of the road.


Isagenix shakes come in three different flavors: Creamy French Vanilla, Creamy Dutch Chocolate, and (surprisingly) Black Sesame. As you know, I’m not an adventurous girl. So the thought of a black sesame-flavored shake freaked me out a little. I went with reliable old chocolate instead. It was actually pretty tasty. No chalkiness whatsoever. Definite thumbs up from me.


This is one meal replacement shake that kept me full for a long time. Seriously, it was hours before I was hungry again. Maybe it was the 8 grams of fiber or the 24 grams protein in each shake. Or maybe it was just the overall thickness. Whatever it was, it definitely kept my hunger demons away for a while.


This shake was doing so well until I checked out the nutritional value. Isagenix Isalean contains 240 calories per serving, which is substantially higher than most of the other shakes I tried. It also has 11 grams of sugar and 6 grams of fat. Those aren’t Big Mac numbers or anything, but for a meal replacement shake, they’ve got to do better than that.

Overall, Isagenix shakes are tasty and they can really curb your appetite. But there are more nutritious options that you might want to explore first.

    It is pretty obvious that you don’t understand nutrition from a macronutrient perspective. Fat is essential to fat loss when consuming a low carb diet. Fats equal energy. Also the reason your appetite is curbed has nothing to do with the fats contained in each shake, but more to do with the soluble fiber content. This makes the shakes a very low glycemic food. That in turn causes your hunger to be curbed longer. Curbing your hunger has nothing to do with fat content. After reading your nutritional grade you lost all credibility. Understand nutrition before giving out a grade for a product.

      Amen! I have been using Isalean and have dropped more than 60 pounds (268 to 204). After reading this I went to Amazon so I could see the nutritional value of each and wow are these reviews wrong when it comes to nutritional value. Another reason Isalean is a better appetite blocker is that the shake has 24 grams of protein compared to only 9 for the GNC. 9 grams is not enough protein for a meal replacement, that’s a quick lo-cal, small protein bar snack.

        I agree! The protein in the shake is what helps to keep you feeling full and ready to go.

    I don’t really agree with your nutritional value grade. Yes it does have more calories than the other shakes out there as it is a meal replacement the fats are also healthy fats and the sugars are all natural. So the quality of those nutritional facts needs to be considered as well.

    The Isagenix shakes are part of a system that works in synergy to assist weight loss and improve energy and performance. The shakes are a well balanced micro/macro nutrient meal that can deliver pretty incredible results. Personally, I lost 23.5 kgs in just over four months and feel great. I have kept the weight off and have developed much better habits along the way. Combine this with regular exercise, continued healthy eating and you too can be on a path to success. Isagenix encourages a healthy lifestyle and provides great support to its users. I reccommend this to anyone looking for an improvement in their overall health and wellness. I am more than happy to answer any questions anyone might have about this company and the products they offer. Best of luck to those out there doing their research!

    What’s the vitamin content- I’m concerned more about that if it’s replacing regular meals. Some fat is good if it’s healthier fats. That’s probably why you weren’t so hungry.

    The reason the Isagenix shakes have more sugar and fat than the competition is due to the fact that they are all natural. They don’t load them with unhealthy artificail sweetners to get them to taste good. You don’t want artificial sweetners like aspartame and sucralose in your shakes for the same reason you shouldn’t drink diet soft drinks.

    I bought the 30 day isagenix program. I lost 15 lbs in 20 days and the shakes are by far the best part of the regime! The chocolate and French vanilla are both an A+ in my book. I found neither one to be too sweet. Just right. I like them so much, I will buy them again even at that price. The independently packaged shake portions were perfect for my work life. I am almost out now and am searching for something a little cheaper that I enjoy half as much.

    Good luck!
