2015 SkidmoreCollege Study 15-month results 2015 SkidmoreCollege Study HERE
The year-long collaboration with nutrition researcher Paul Arciero Ph.D., of Skidmore College was designed to test the long-term success using Isagenix for sustained weight loss, and its effect on detoxification, and metabolism. The results showed extraordinary advantages to following the Isagenix system over a traditional heart-healthy diet.
The study consisted of 40 obese or overweight participants who followed an Isagenix system for initial weight loss. After 10 weeks the subjects were divided into two groups. To test the long-term effects of the products, one group then continued with an Isagenix maintenance system and the other group followed a heart-healthy diet for the remainder of the 15 months.
At the 2015 New Year Kick Off event in Palm Springs, Calif., Isagenix Chief Science Officer, Suk Cho Ph.D., shared his excitement over the long-term results of the Skidmore College study showing that subjects who stayed on the Isagenix maintenance plan were more successful with sustaining their weight loss. After one year, participants who continued with the Isagenix maintenance plan were able to maintain, if not increase overall weight loss, lean body mass, and continue to decrease their percent body and visceral fat. In comparison, those who followed the heart-healthy diet with the help of a dietitian on average found that they gained back most of their weight initially lost, along with a majority of the body fat.
Dr. Arciero plans to submit the research for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
