Greens Plus vs Isagenix

So Lately I have been getting sick of people shoving Isagenix down my throat. Is it really that good? I know people who liked being on it, lost weight but couldn’t afford the $300 a month price tag. So i decided to go out on my own and find a reasonably comparable product that is cheaper and way more accessible. In short. Greens plus is much more affordable, very close in ingredients except for the Greens plus contains 15 grams of protein. where as Isagenix is only 0.5 grams.20120417-144635.jpg

Also greens+ contains no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives, corn, dairy, egg, gluten, yeast, GMO or animal products.

I am one serving down( I will be replacing only my lunches) at the beginning of this i was 142 pounds. This should last me 3 weeks so we will see what happens.

Greens plus isnt sold as a weight loss product but Isagenix is, that’s why I am making the comparison and seeing what happens. So far it tastes ok, and I dont have any nasty cravings.

    I always love stevia because it is a great substitute for sugar and it can be taken by diabetics. ‘:.,’
