I've never followed the Isagenix program "as directed". I don't really exactly follow any program. I tend to "tweak" others' ideas to fit me personally, rather than follow them.
As I've come close to goal, I continue to mix my Isagenix Greens and muy IsaFruits. I take 1/2 T in the morning and 1/2 T in the evening.
I'd been using 2-3 half shakes per day, when I was dieting more consistently. Sometimes the IsaLean shake (I prefer choclate); sometimes the IsaPro. Often a combination. And, combining them with small amounts of food at meal times (usually veggies and protein).
I've been using the shakes a lot less frequently lately. I really DO prefer solid food to meal replacements. But, I've been fluctuating around the same 2-3 pound range for about 3 weeks now. Hasn't happened to me since November 2010. (I'd consistently lost 4-6 pounds per month between September 2010 and June 2011, even during a 3-week plateau. During July, August and Sept, as I was closer to goal, my weight loss slowed to 2-3 pounds per month.)
Today,for breakfast, I ate a 230 calorie breakfast (mostly veggies and a little bit of deli ham, stir-fried with a small egg). Also, a little bit of cottage cheese sweetened with Stevia with some blueberries added. For lunch, I went to Pizza Hut's buffet, and had one slice of thin crust taco pizza, lots of raw veggies from the salad bar, and one cinnamon stick, for a total of 372 calories. I plan to have half a shake and something small and healthy for supper, and I may eat some small, healthy snacks too. For today, I'd like to keep my calories in the 850-1000 calorie range; tomorrow, I'll eat "ehough", so my body doesn't go into starvation mode (probably 1200-1300 calories).
I haven't been tracking calories for the past 3 months anymore -- just estimating, and, trying to stay in the 1200-1300 calorie range twice a week, and, below on the other 5 days. That worked for me before. So, because I've been "stuck" for awhile, I plan to go back to what worked in the past, and see if I can't lose another 10 or so pounds, in order to get some needed inches off of my "apple" waist.

I'm having a shake right now. I get up in the morning between 5 and 5:30, walk my standard poodles one at a time, have Ionix Supreme and my breakfast shake and then take both dogs for a ninety minute walk.
It's apple season in Washington so apples are a main part of my snacks. I make applesauce from the apples I pick in a friend's orchard. I freeze it so I can have applesauce and oatmeal for a snack all year long.
Our big meal today will be turkey burgers(5oz of ground extra lean turkey breast with matzo meal and a TBS of salsa), a big salad (tomatoes, carrots, spinach, red pepper, sweet onion) with a TSP of Ken's Greek salad dressing, and frozen green beans.
I'll have a shake for my other meal.
It's raining here this morning so I am grateful for my wonderful coat with a hood. The dogs don't care what the weather is. Wet weather seems to make everything smell better to the them so they like it better when it's raining.
have a great day
The reason most people fail instead of succeed is that they trade what they want MOST for what they want at the MOMENT.
