Supplements… Which ones? There are so many to choose from!

Want to know how which products I use to simplify my life, improve my appearance, and get an edge over the competition in my athletic endeavors?

If you are like me, you have heard and read so many different things about different supplements and supplement companies and you might not know quite where to start.

What works? Which ones are the best?

I went for a very long period of time where I didn’t think any of them were worth the money and more importantly I wasn’t sure they were safe for my health.

I created this Supplementation Guide in hopes to clarify, simplify, and answer your questions and to help you gain the same advantages I have gained since giving Isagenix a try.

Why do I choose Isagenix?

I love Isagenix for these 3 reasons:

  1. I get the question all the time about comparing this protein powder and that protein powder and to be honest, there is a chance that those two brands people are asking me about are the same protein powder with different labels. The nutritional supplement world is an interesting one and that is why I choose Isagenix because the supplements are of the highest quality and you are getting exactly what the label says.
  2. I am a tough one to convince that a supplement is going to do what it claims to do and I look for not only science to back up the claims (hello, former nuclear engineer), but I also want to see how it works for ME and for my clients.  Isagenix has passed the test time and time again.
  3. Most importantly Isagenix products are used to create a LIFESTYLE. You still eat real food and Isagenix is a highly beneficial tool added to your toolbox for creating your FitLife.

Since starting to use Isagenix in 2010, I have noticed the following benefits just to name a few:

  • decreased amount of time I have to spend cooking food
  • decreased cravings (especially starchy carbs and sugars)
  • increased energy
  • incredibly quick recovery time
  • and improved everything from building muscles and decreasing body fat levels to quality of sleep

My personal “secret formula” I have found for using Isagenix:

As soon as I wake up: 1 scoop Cleanse for Life and 1 serving of Ionix Supreme and AM pack of Ageless Essentials with Product B.

20-30 minutes after I have my Cleanse for Life/Ionix Supreme/AM Ageless Essentials pack, I have an IsaLean shake… If I am at home, I will add in some frozen kale, beets, and berries and from time to time IsaGreens. Bottom line: I have a shake whether it is made in a blender or dumped into a water bottle on the go.

Lunch: I have a lot of lunch meetings so this meal is usually eaten out at a restaurant. I have pretty much whatever I feel like having as long as it is relatively clean.

Around 3pm, I have my second shake. This is almost always consumed on the go but if I happen to be at home, I like to add a little coconut oil to it. This is also when I will have a second serving of Ionix Supreme.

Dinner: More networking and dinner events most nights and if not, I cook a big yummy dinner keeping it clean with plenty of green veggies but I don’t hold back. I hate going to bed hungry and find that I sleep better if I have a little starch in my last meal.

This way of eating provides me with plenty of energy, keeps my cravings away, keeps me lean and strong, and is EASY. For anyone who has followed me for any length of time, I truly believe we all have better things to spend our time, energy, and brain power on other than obsessing about food.

Right before bed: I have 1 scoop Cleanse for Life, 1 serving of Ionix Supreme (if I didn’t have it around 3pm), and PM pack of Ageless Essentials with Product B.

I rotate other products in (especially the IsaLean Pro and the IsaLean Bars), but this is my tried and true formula that has kept me looking this way on a regular basis. Now if I need to tweak a couple things for a special event or vacation, it’s just that… tweaking.

Isagenix uses a business model that encourages teamwork and I am super excited to have you on this team with me. Want to join us?

There are a couple different considerations when it comes to using Isagenix…

1.) How to use the products.
2.) How to build a residual income.

To address “How I use the products,” I created these blog posts and videos to discuss when, how, and why I use Isagenix and how you can incorporate it into your FitLife:

To address “How I am building a residual income,” I made this video:

For the first year, I was just a product user. Then the second year, I learned more about the business side of things and started out by earning about $400 per month which more than paid for my products.

From there, I started spending more time working on building my business which covered my living expenses during my 5 months I spent in Costa Rica in 2012 and is now an important piece of my overall business model… it provides a nutritional tool as well as a source of income for myself and my other team members.

If you are reading this and thinking, “but I’m not in the fitness world as a profession,” the best part is YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE! Some of our most successful team members are engineers, finance professionals, stay-at-home moms, and everything in between. When I started in this business in 2010, I was working as a defense contractor with no prior sales experience.

There are so many different ways to be successful in this business. Stay-at-home moms may be most comfortable hosting nutritional talks in their homes while others are hitting it hard, treating it like a business and getting business-building results.

Janice is the perfect example of this. Janice and I served together as nuclear engineers on the USS Abraham Lincoln and have teamed up again nearly a decade later. Janice jumped in with both feet and joined BNI, in my opinion the best networking group around. She meets weekly with her networking group to show THEM how to sell FOR HER. She has made connections with business owners and is focusing on business to business sales.

As a side note here, many MLM companies focus on the one-to-one sales model. Isagenix is easily replicable for business to business sales. Business owners also love Isagenix because they don’t have to maintain a high inventory. This is a HUGE relief for a business owner.

To better understand the compensation plan and how you can at least get your products paid for and at most build a successful business like my friends and our team, Chris and Lori Harder and Holly DeMott, check out this video:

I met Holly when she was just getting started and I can still remember how excited she was because she had just replaced her 6-figure income she lost when she was laid off from her job in finance. When you watch this video, you will hear her say she made 1 Million dollars total within her first 3.5 years of selling Isagenix.

The past few years I have been very busy building my online training business and I am finally getting to the point where I can dedicate more time and energy to Isagenix. We have some incredible members on our team who are doing great things and I want to connect you all and do even more great things.

Now that you have seen your earning potential $$$, and if you are ready to take Isagenix to the next level, ask me for more information and exclusive team training on how to start building your business. You can email me directly at

I am working on developing a coaching program for those of you who are ready to learn, grow, and earn with Isagenix. For now, please share this information with those team members who have enrolled with you and/or pass along their email addresses to us so we can keep them in the loop and offer the support they need to succeed.

If the timing is not right for you to build your Isagenix business, I completely understand… as you saw in my timeline it took me some time to jump in too! I’m just glad I was still receiving the valuable information from Chris, Lori, and Holly.

As always, if you have any questions about how to use any of the products, don’t hesitate to ask!
