Does It Works really work?????


I recently came across the company It Works, a company I had completely disregarded in the past. I thought the wrap was gimmicky and their products weren’t great . I’m not wrong often (I mean I am a woman and aren’t we always right?!?!) but I can admit when I was wrong and in this case boy was I wrong!

My other half Mike is friends with the owner Mark Pentecost and the CSO Mike Potillo. After a trip to Florida he brought home some products for me to try. He handed me a wrap and I rolled my eyes at him. A few weeks later we were going to a wedding and after trying on my dress I asked him where that wrap thing was….after all I’ve had 3 kids and could use a little helping toning and firming. I tried it and was shocked at how well it worked. So I started doing what I always do and started researching their products. I was very surprised and impressed with some of their ingredients. I found a handful of their other products I wanted to try.

I am using their It’s Vital, Plant based shakes, Greens, Keto products and I’ve done a wrap. (The wraps are detoxifying and all detox products should be used with caution while breastfeeding)

I had the pleasure of doing a call with the It Works doctor and imagine my surprise when I learned that hes very into natural remedies and never vaccinated his children! We totally hit it off and I asked him if we could do a recorded call that I could share with you all! We had so much to talk about that the initial video was almost 40 minutes so I broke it up into smaller segments!

I loved hearing his story and learning that he and I share many of the same values and beliefs! I hope you all enjoy getting to know Dr. Don as much as I did!

This video talks about some of my favorite It Works products, their shakes and keto line!

Anya and I LOVE shakes so I was really excited to try these! They are plant based using yellow pea and organic sprouted brown rice proteins, they have 15 grams of protein, and ZERO sugar!!! Soy-Free. Non-GMO. Dairy-Free. Vegan. No artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. Free of antibiotics and growth hormones. Heart-healthy formula that’s low in saturated fat and cholesterol-free. Optimal levels of BCAAs. Helps build and maintain lean muscle mass. Long lasting protein that satisfies, plus they don’t cost $100 a bag like so many other shakes!!!

This article talks about why plant based protein is better for you!

I LOVE the Keto coffee. I use a non dairy coconut milk creamer (I hate black coffee) but it still has 4 grams of sugar. I’ve tried sugar free ones but didn’t like them. I hate starting my day with sugar in my coffee like that.

When I travel we always have to find an Earth Fare or similar store so I can get my creamer. It’s a pain in the rear lol

I recently tried Keto coffee and was blown away! It tastes amazing WITHOUT me adding anything to it!!!! And it’s made with awesome ingredients! Plus it’s individual packets so it’s perfect for travel!! Win win!!

There are several other awesome products in the Keto line that you can learn more about HERE

So lets talk about these wraps. I totally thought they were a gimmicky weight loss product until I tried them. I had such great results that I made a post on my FB page and was shocked at the comments from others saying they had tried them with no results, until I realized that they too thought the wraps were a weight loss product. It Works Wraps are NOT a weight loss product! They are meant to firm, tone and detoxify. True weight loss is found at the gym and in your kitchen! These wraps should be used to supplement your healthy lifestyle. They are great for an event, wedding, trip to the beach, competition etc!

*While the wraps have some natural ingredients they are not an all natural product*

Tightens, tones, & firms the skin

  • Redefines the appearance of your body’s contours

  • Improves skin texture & tightness

  • Mess-free and simple to use

  • Results in as little as 45 minutes

  • Fast and lasting results with continued use

  • Contains botanical extracts

I am going to share my before and after picture with you. I eat very healthy and I try to workout regularly BUT I’ve given birth to 3 babies and I’m in my mid-thirties so I can use any help firming and toning my skin I can get!!

These pictures were taken 51 minutes apart. Before was taken in the bathroom and after in the kitchen so the lighting is a little different.

Disclaimer: Since the wrap detoxifies it should be used with caution while breastfeeding and not at all while pregnant. I am still breastfeeding our 2 year old so I’ve only done the wrap once so far.

We are using their It’s Vital Minerals at our house currently so I am going to talk about them!

There are several products in the It’s Vital Line, you can read about them all HERE.


Greens are one one of my favorite products from this company!!! While I believe that you should get most of your nutrients from the foods you eat, sometimes you need to supplement! Great for picky children or even adults who don’t get enough fruits and veggies in their diets!

Anya eats great and is still breastfeeding but some days she only wants to eat fruit and pretzels #balance! At least on these days I don’t feel as guilty knowing shes taking her Greens. The best part is that she LOVES them, the Berry Greens are her favorite!! Seriously I have to fight her to share them with me! #momlife
