NOT posting this to start an argument, just wanted to share an article I read today regarding Body by Vi. You hear all the good things about it, but rarely do you hear the truth - it really is just another fad diet, no matter HOW you market it...

To be honest I am getting sick of people on my facebook and leaving me messages wanting me to join this.. When I post things that I can't afford anything after all pay checks they ask me if I want to join.. God some respect.. (sorry venting) but it is getting very old from people wanting me to join this..

A good read and pretty much what I had figured this to be. Another FAD Diet! huh

I do wish people wouldn't refer to blogs as articles =/

Thanks for posting this-- I've always thought the same things. Anyone would lose weight on this shake because of the low calories, there's nothing magical or even nutritious about it!

Thank you for posting this! I think his analysis is probably pretty spot on.

Nice article. I don't have the patience to do this kind of research myself....nor the dedication. I don't care what product that guy is talking about I love the information he give and how much work he did. I wish he would review all these shakes, etc so I could read all of his reviews. I will by saying....."If it's too good to be true, then it's too good to be true!"

OMG one of the guys was a former Monavie peddler, no surprise there.

I am a body by vi promoter and Two of my customers have lost 7-8 lbs in the last week. They can be as little to as much calories as you like, depending on what you put in them. Most of the ones I drink have about 350 calories in them.

Body by Vi worked for me. It was so much better than the normal Slimfast & Atkins shakes i been drinking. Healthier for you than the slimfast, and the body by vi gave me energy. I think it is well woth the price i paid for it, i liked it so good i ordered 2 more 30 meal pkgs. It was more filling to me too than the slimfast & atkins shakes.

As I said before...not trying to start anything, just sharing because I think many people are very misled. I'll stick to my real food, real exercise, and real progress. drinker

1 pound worked for you? I'm hoping you're talking about the weight you lost before joining MFP...

It's still processed and not real food...regardless of what you add to it.

Losing 7 pounds in a week isn't healthy!

I really want to see how to determined it's healthier? I'm assuming your friendly neighborhood multi-level marketer told you :( I've spoken to 2 dietitians about it so far and they agree , it's junk...it's a low call milkshake that of course will make you lose weight because there are barely any calories to sustain your body!

You aren't changing your core body composition! It's not the weight that's important, it's what you're made of!

I wouldn't be able to do it, I wouldn't be able to look at my friends and family in the face and say here, eat this for breakfast and lunch to lose weight. Especially when there is so much evidence coming out that the nutrition facts are dubious and that it may indeed slow down vitamin/mineral absorption and the soy protein may in fact be harmful in the quantities you are taking.

Has anyone else read ALL the Posts?! - All the people selling BODY by VI are posting the exact same responses! - Word for Word! - LOL! - Word for Word. - My best friend sells Body by VI (ViSalus) and he has gotten his BMW! - He spews the same EXACT word for word quotes these other people did on here! - Laughing my Butt Off! - ViSalus is no better than HERBALIFE was!

Or you could just eat real food and forget the shakes....

A real life friend tried to sell me on this a few months ago and was so indignant when I said it sounded like SlimFast. I have the time and money (generally) to prepare real food, why would I want to forego some killer seitan tacos and asparagus for an overpriced milkshake?

Really, soy hating? It's pretty small quantities of it from what I see. Many foods contain negative qualities. If it's your singular source of food, it might be a problem, but realistically, it's a non-issue.
