Meal Planning for Shake Day Success

Starting a busy week without a plan in place can often derail your best intentions. The same goes for your weight loss and wellness goals on a Shake Day. Prepare for success with these Shake Day meal planning tips. 

Shake Day Basics 

The Isagenix System for weight loss and well-being is comprised of Cleanse Days and Shake Days. With helpful tools like the Cleanse Day Tracker and Cleanse Day Approved snacks, planning the perfect Cleanse Day is a breeze. Your Shake Days can be just as simple and successful with a basic meal plan and recipes to keep you organized. 

On Shake Days, you replace two meals with your choice of Isagenix shakes and consume a nutritionally balanced third meal along with a few 100-200 calorie snacks. If you have different goals on different days of the week, keeping a variety of Isagenix shake options on hand and customizing your menu could be the best choice for you. 

Organize your Shake Days for success with these four steps: 

Choose two meals each day that you will swap for shakes. 
Next, choose one meal each day that will be your third meal option and pick delicious, balanced recipes between 400-600 calories for each meal.  
Make your weekly shopping list to ensure you have the ingredients you need on hand. 
Prepare and proportion your snacks ahead of time. 
Don’t forget to include Ionix Supreme®, Natural Accelerator ™, IsaFlush™, and your other favorites to help you reach your goals. 

Meal Planning for Successful Shake Days  

Meal planning is a simple solution that can make a big difference in helping you reach your health and weight-loss goals (1). Planning meals in advance takes the stress out of trying to decide what’s for dinner every night and will end the temptation for takeout when you’re feeling tired at the end of a long day. 

Consider your schedule for the coming week and decide how many meals you will need to prepare. Jot down your Shake Day menu ideas for each day of the week and collect any recipes you plan to use. Rely on the convenience of an Isagenix shake when you are most crunched for time and plan to cook when you aren’t as rushed.  

It’s not necessary to always follow the same Shake Day schedule. If your routine is different from day to day, adapt your Shake Day to work best for you.  Personalizing your Shake Days is the best way to be successful, so be sure to customize each menu to your needs. 

Here are three sample Shake Day meal plans to help inspire your own plan.
