Prime, Inc. Announces Driver Body Composition Study Results to Promote Healthy Lifestyles Among the Trucking Industry: Body Composition


A study was conducted in 2010 comparing four popular diets vs. the amount of their nutrition sufficiency (see graphs) below. The average of all four diets was just 43.5% of the US RDI of nutrients.

Sufficiency of 4 Popular Diets

Calorie Requirements to Meet RDA




USING THE SAME METHODOLOGY, I have shown that the IsaGenix nutritional system provides 75% of the US RDI of nutrition. So the quality and superiority of the IsaGenix products should no longer be in question.

Others have reviewed IsaGenix products, too. For example, go to: for a review of the IsaGenix IsaLean Shake by an independent consumer group. Of 47 ingredients that the review lists, 38 of the ingredients were rated “good”, 8 of the ingredients were rated “neutral” and only 1 ingredient was rated as “controversial”.  That ingredient was “fructose”. Their main objection was that

Fructose has come under considerable controversy as of late . . . It’s a monosaccharide (simple sugar), the body can use for energy. Because it does not cause blood sugar rise tremendously (has a low glycemic index), it was once thought that fructose was a good substitute for sucrose (table sugar).  However, the American Diabetes Association and nutritional experts have changed their minds about this. When too much fructose enters the liver, the liver can’t process it all fast enough for the body to use as sugar. Instead, it starts making fats from the fructose and sending them off into the bloodstream as triglycerides.¥  In short excess fructose is associated with weight gain. American Diabetes Association. “Nutrition Recommendations and Interventions for Diabetes–2006.” Diabetes Care 29 (2006): 2140-2157.” 

However, they failed to say what “too much fructose” is nor do they say how much fructose is in the IsaLean shake. Here is what IsaGenix has to say about fructose:

“Sometimes companies resort to frightening people about other companies’ products just to sell their own. . . . As a company growing around the world, Isagenix is no stranger to these types of negative campaigns. But rarely are the statements made by these other companies accurate or truthful. The goal is simply to misinform and mislead a target audience to encourage them to buy their own product. Fructose is an example of an ingredient regularly misjudged and a target for scare-mongering campaigns, said nutritionist Michael Colgan, Ph.D., an Isagenix Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) member. . . . But by comparison, a large apple of the Belle de Boskoop variety—“the kind that are great for apple pies”—contains up to 26 grams of sugar mainly from fructose and few people would think of them as unhealthy, Dr. Colgan reminds. The fact is that fructose used in normal amounts can be useful in foods such as nutritional shakes because studies show it can support glycemic control long-term while being sweeter, allowing for less use of sugar and carbohydrate calories overall.” -

There are a lot of people who start IsaGenix the WRONG way. They get one or two of the products and then expect great results, and then they don’t even use those products correctly. The right way to start is by doing the 30 Day System. IsaGenix isn’t a protein shake. IsaGenix is a complete nutritional system and a lot of people don’t understand that. Also, the IsaLean and the IsaLean Pro are not protein shakes. They are meal replacement shakes, and that’s why they have 11g of sugar. That’s not a lot, actually. Not what I would consider “excessive fructose”. How much is too much for you? Look at the fructose level of fruit below and then determine if you should stop eating fruit. IsaGenix does have a straight protein shake that only has 1g of sugar. However, I am recommending the IsaGenix 30 Day System to people because the IsaGenix products taken together as a “whole” system provides the easiest and best nutritional foundation for the public and most of my clients.

Finally, the website also fails to correctly categorize the IsaLean Shake. They compare the IsaLean Shake which is a “meal replacement shake” to mostly “protein shakes”. For example, their top rated shake, the 310 Shake, only has 25 ingredients, not 47 ingredients. This is because the purpose of the 310 Shake is not the same as the IsaLean Shake.

Nutritional Deficiencies
