Your New Energy Solution with Isagenix
“Energy” is what moves us. It’s the capacity for work, action, change, and transformation. In nutritional terms, “energy” is often referred to as a way to describe the calorie content of a food or how many calories the body ingests or expends—energy in, energy out. But nutrition as it relates to an individual’s subjective feelings of “energy” is quite different.
Why Should You Seek Out “Clean” Energy?
When you woke up this morning, how did you feel?
- Did you wake up feeling ready to face the day and live life to the fullest?
- Did you wake up feeling sluggish and barely able to drag yourself out of bed?
“Clean” energy is about creating a lifestyle where you always feel ready to rise and shine—It’s the energy we all want and need. It’s the energy that’s attractive, motivating, and powerful.
11 Swaps for Cleaner Energy
Think of the Isagenix Energy Solution as a catalyst for change—getting you on the right track quickly. Swap out “junk foods” with nutrient-dense alternatives along with healthy habits like regular exercise and quality sleep. The goal is a flood of “clean” energy to power your day. Here are 11 swaps for clean energy through better nutrition and lifestyle habits.
Swap No. 1: Breakfast – Glazed doughnut versus IsaLean® Bar
The nutritional goal here is to switch from a high-glycemic meal pattern of eating in favor of a low-glycemic meal pattern. You want to say goodbye to rollercoaster-like blood glucose and the spike and crash that comes as a result.
A glazed doughnut has roughly the same number of calories as an IsaLean Bar (210 to 250 calories), but its nutritional profile is starkly different:
|Glazed Doughnut||IsaLean Bar (Caramel Cashew)|
|14 grams of saturated fat||5 grams of balanced fats|
|30 grams of high-glycemic carbohydrates and sugar||28 grams of low-glycemic carbs|
|3 grams of protein||18 grams of protein|
Swap No. 2: Coffee – Conventional coffee with cream and sugar versus Isagenix Coffee
Burnt coffee with poor taste—of which sugar and trans fat-laden cream are required just to improve the flavor—is just not worth it! You should also never have to worry about your coffee being potentially contaminated with heavy metals or mycotoxins.
Rigorously tested, gourmet-blended Isagenix variety can be a powerful health tool when delivered and used in the right way. It’s virtually calorie-free and hydrates the body (doesn’t dehydrate it, as some would suggest). Its content of caffeine and bioactive compounds can also help to quickly increase mental alertness, make exercise more enjoyable, and help sustain energy throughout the day.
|Conventional Coffee||Isagenix Coffee|
|Can easily reach 120 calories or more||Rich in flavorful compounds for best taste (no creamer required; scoop of Vanilla IsaPro® optional)|
|6 grams of trans fat from added creamers||Virtually calorie-free|
|10 to 20 grams of sugar (depending on whether you choose one lump or two)||Rigorously tested to be contaminant-free|
Swap No. 3: Lunch – Fast-food hamburger and french fries versus IsaLean Shake
Suboptimal micronutrient status is often associated with symptoms of fatigue or reduced motivation at subclinical stages. Both iron and vitamin C are examples of how this might occur; and while a hamburger might provide some of the iron you need (maybe even too much), it lacks vitamin C along with several other important vitamins and minerals. By swapping a typical hamburger and french fries with an IsaLean Shake, not only do you avoid the high number of calories, but also receive better nutrition.
|Hamburger and French Fries||IsaLean Shake|
|745 calories||240 calories|
|37 grams of saturated fat||5 grams of balanced, good fats (omega 3, omega 6, medium-chain triglycerides, monounsaturated fats)|
|33 grams of protein||24 grams of quality protein (whey and milk protein)|
|70 grams of high-glycemic carbohydrates||24 grams of low-glycemic carbohydrates|
|High in iron but lacking vitamin C and other important vitamins and minerals||Complete vitamin and mineral profile|
Swap No. 4: Drink – Sugary soda versus Ionix® Supreme
Why drink soda when you can reap the rewards of Adaptogens on a daily basis? Ionix Supreme’s cocktail of Adaptogens is especially designed to help you deal with daily stresses while supporting mental and physical performance.
|Sugary 12-Ounce Soda||Ionix Supreme|
|39 grams of sugar||4 grams of sugar|
|140 calories||20 calories|
|0 nutrients||Adaptogens to support mental and physical performance|
Swap No. 5: Energy shot – Typical energy shot versus e+™
|Typical Energy Shot||e+ Natural Energy Shot|
|Excessive caffeine||About 80 mg caffeine (roughly the equivalent of 1 cup of coffee) naturally sourced from green tea and yerba mate|
|High in sugar||Just 35 calories|
|Artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners||Adaptogens and botanicals to naturally boost energy and fight fatigue|
Swap No. 6: Snack – Typical vending machine chips versus Fiber Snacks™
Why choose extra calories from vending machine chips—that never really satisfy your appetite—when you could load up on filling protein and fiber? Fiber Snacks make it easy to enjoy an extra six grams of protein and six grams of fiber.
|Vending Machine Chips||Fiber Snacks|
|160 calories||140 calories|
|10 grams of fat||5 grams of fat|
|15 grams of carbohydrates||20 grams of carbohydrates|
|2 grams of protein||6 grams of protein|
|0 grams of fiber||6 grams of fiber|
Swap No. 7: Sitting in front of TV versus going out for a walk or working out
Watching TV too often leads to snacking and can be one of the largest contributors of excess calories in a person’s diet. Ditch the television set and head to the gym or the park for a workout.
Swap No. 8: Workout drink – Typical sugary sports drink versus AMPED™ Hydrate (formerly Replenish™)
Even mild dehydration (1 percent of body weight) is associated with symptoms of fatigue and reduced cognitive and physical performance. But if you’re watching your waistline, you don’t need all the added sugars and calories that come with a typical sports drink. AMPED Hydrate can provide you with a more comfortable dose of carbohydrates along with nutrients and electrolytes to support energy levels and help you stay on track with your weight-management goals.
|Typical Sports Drink||Replenish/AMPED Hydrate|
|140 calories||35 calories|
|39 grams of sugar||8 grams of sugar|
|Artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors||Free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors|
Swap No. 9: Dinner – Swap a large dinner for a higher-protein smaller dinner with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
For most people, dinner is the time when they are most likely to overeat. But through careful attention to spreading protein and calories over the course of the day, you can satisfy appetite and manage hunger cravings. Swap a big dinner for a smaller one containing lean protein, whole grains, and plenty of fruits and vegetables in the range of 400 to 600 calories.
Swap No. 10: After-dinner dessert: Chocolate candies versus IsaDelight® (Bedtime Belly Buster Optional)
Chocolate is the most craved food—especially after dinner. So this swap is all about managing that desire for something sweet. IsaDelight chocolates are high in quality, infused with green tea, B vitamins, and amino acids, and individually wrapped for convenience and portion control.
|Typical Bag of Chocolate Candies||IsaDelight|
|240 calories||60 calories|
|10 grams of fat||3 grams of fat|
|30 grams of sugar||5 grams of sugar|
|Green tea, B vitamins, and amino acids|
Swap No. 11: Bedtime – Watching TV late at night in bed versus quality reading material (like the latest R&D newsletter) and Sleep Support and Renewal™
Watching TV at night contributes to inadequate sleep (less than seven hours per night) and is a likely contributor to feelings of fatigue and low energy. Sleep Support and Renewal provides you with melatonin, which can help to normalize sleep patterns that helps protect your health and helps you wake up more refreshed for a more energetic lifestyle.
