Some call it intermittent fasting. We call them Cleanse Days. They’re a fantastic way to work toward losing weight, burning fat, and giving your body’s systems the chance to rid toxins naturally. You’ll hear a lot about Cleanse Days at Isagenix (if you haven’t already) and the impact they have on physical transformations. But, how they work can sometimes feel like a mystery, especially because we can’t see what’s going on inside our own bodies.

Let’s go through a typical Cleanse Day to see how it works.

What Is a Cleanse Day?

A Cleanse Day is a full day of intermittent fasting using Cleanse for Life®, which nourishes your body in place of meals and supports your natural detoxifying systems, such as your liver and kidneys, in their functions during this time. Cleanse Days are designed to help you lose weight and burn fat while your body gets a break from the calories normally consumed during shakes and meals.†

Is Cleansing Hard?

We’re not going to tell you that a Cleanse Day is as much fun as a cheat day, but just because something isn’t easy, doesn’t mean it can’t feel doable and even rewarding. While intermittent fasting takes many forms, a proper Cleanse Day is a full day without eating a meal. Is it challenging? Yes. Will you feel amazing after you’ve accomplished one? DOUBLE YES. In short, Cleanse Days are worth it.

What Is Cleanse for Life?

It’s easy to see Cleanse for Life and lump it together with all the other juicing and cleansing fads out there, but there’s a key difference between Cleanse for Life and the others — we aren’t making wild claims that our drink is cleansing magic. Instead, Cleanse for Life nourishes your body with botanicals while your body does the cleansing. You’ve been walking around with the tools to cleanse your whole life; Cleanse for Life just helps your body do what it does best during a Cleanse Day.†

So, I Don’t Eat Anything Else?

Isagenix has got you here, too. In addition to the nourishment from Cleanse for Life, you can enjoy small snacks in limited portions, like Snack BitesPlant-Based Harvest Thins, and IsaDelight® chocolates (yum). They’re the perfect ways to get you through Cleanse Days without ruining your routine. It’s all about having the tools you need to achieve results while staying comfortable!

How Often Am I Supposed to Cleanse?

Every Isagenix Weight Loss Pack comes with a Weight Loss Guide that explains everything you need to know about the products and your weight loss journey, including an easy-to-follow calendar that labels your Shake Days and Cleanse Days. Most people choose one day a week to cleanse, but if you’re feeling mighty, you can venture into back-to-back Cleanse Days (with no more than two back-to-back Cleanse Days and a maximum of four Cleanse Days per month)!

How Quickly Can I Expect Results?

Hundreds of product users agree that Cleanse Days feel incredible, but weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint. While those juices and cleansing fads promise instant results, Cleanse for Life and Cleanse Days are an important step in a journey designed to last a lifetime.
