After witnessing his best friend experience a traumatic hiking accident, James’ physical and mental health plummeted. But after joining the IsaBody Challenge, James not only lost weight, but he also found the passion and hope that had disappeared following his friend’s accident.

*Weight loss should not be considered typical. In a study performed in 2012 by University of Illinois at Chicago researchers, subjects lost an average of 9 pounds with an average of 2 pounds of the loss from visceral fat after 30 days on an Isagenix System. The subjects also had a greater level of adherence and had more consistent weight loss from week to week compared to subjects on a traditional diet.
