Body by Vi Scam?

So, you want to see if there is a Body by Vi Scam, eh?

Well, let’s show you what we uncovered when we did our own due diligence.  Here are just a few of the testimonials we’ve been able to gather from customers on the BodybyVi Challenge:

Tamara Sands ~ Since I started the Body By Vi program, besides losing 68lbs so far, as of last Oct, my cholesterol decreased from 224 to 182, my LDL from 215 to 150, my blood sugar was borderline diabetic & is now normal, I sleep, I have no pain, & I feel better than I did in my 20s!

Melissa N Kelly Vicent ~ This product is great for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetics. Our 10 year old daughter has Type 1 Diabetes and even though we know that NOTHING can prevent Type 1 as it is an autoimmune disease, unlike Type 2, we do know that the shakes do not spike her blood sugar like other snack and breakfast choices sometimes do. We love to hear her say, “I want a shake for my snack/breakfast.”

Donovan Dwyer ~ I am so proud of my parents: Dad is down 13 lbs after 4 weeks on the Challenge. Mom is down 6 lbs after 3 weeks and has brought her sugar levels down from the 140’s to 100-105 range.

Lucy ~ I threw away my size 15 pants last night, now I’m in a size 8 and down 37 lbs, I have 10 more to go til I hit my goal! Thanks Body by Vi!!!

Shane Lavell ~ My Facebook And ViSalus Brother Dale Bradley Was Born With Cerebral Palsy And Has Been In A Wheelchair Is Beginning To Walk Short Distances All THANKS To The Visalus Vi-Pak & The Body By Vi Challenge, Your Awesome My Man Simply Awesome!!!!”

Colton Galle ~ Think I read the scale wrong.Had to try again. 88 days ago @ 394.6 lbs 46 5/8 in @ hips wearing 4XL shirts. This am the scale read 334.3lbs. 40 inch jeans falling off 2X shirt is a little big. I’ve done the math and am in shock. I feel Better than I have in yrs. BP is lower than its ever been. blood sugars don’t require meds anymore. Pain lvls pretty null. Energy off the charts. Stress (whats that)!

Michelle Grigsby (via Vi-Net) ~ This is my 4th day on the challenge and my energry is through the roof! I fall asleep fast,wake up after about 7 hours and can’t go back to sleep. I haven’t needed 9 hours and a monster shot of caffeine upon waking up. It’s surreal!

Kathy Rodriguez (via Vi-Net) ~ I have chronic back, neck and shoulder pain from broken back, neck and shoulder and since talking the Vi-Pak I have seen a huge reduction in the chronic pain and I am sleeping so much better. I am completely off of anti-inflammatory drugs and I feel great. The only thing I have changed is the Vi-pak and the Shake.

Lori Ann Schermerhorn ~ I went to the doctor today to get the result of my MRI from last week. I had one last year and they found four lesions on my brain and signs of MS. TODAY I received great news, I now only have three lesions, they are smaller in size, and there is no sign of MS! He ask me what I was doing, and I told them the only things different is ViSalus- two Vi-shakes a day (meal replacement), Neuro (drinking 2 a day) and whats very important the vi-pack. He had never heard of it,so I gave him my business card, and I will stop in next week to talk to him. So I have had a extraordinary day! ViSalus has changed my life, and now I can say it has saved my life.”

Dale Bradley ~ I have lost 30 lbs in 2 months from a wheelchair…I am passionate about Visalus!

My biggest issue WAS early onset athritis, where it was growing increasingly difficult to function “normally” on a …day-to-day basis. Visalus’ products & the 90 Body ByVi Challenge has rid me of the daily residual stiffness & pain that I was experiencing, not to mention, add about 6 lbs. of muscle, allowing me to run a 1/2 marathon & currently training for the full. Being an athlete that receives a sense of freedom from running….THIS IS A HUGE DEAL!!! Not too mention that I’m 42. So, I’ve got a completely new lease on life as I get older, dare I say I’m feeling younger? ;-) Thanks for represencing me too what Visalus & The Challenge has done for me!

Ron Pruett ~ For my wife and I, I have lost 37 lbs and my wife has lost 31 lbs. But more importantly we have more energy because of the product. As far as doing the business goes I would like to say that we are both retired now. We are absolutely unemployable

    I cannot find any info on what you are supposed to eat for your third meal of the day. If it is a real restricted meal I cannot see this working for me. Unfortunately I am the kind of person that needs something to look forward to.

      Hi Bob,

      If you are asking about a third meal, it’s because you are considering a challenge kit that is replacing 2 meals with Shakes. I’ll assume that’s where you’re coming from okay? Remember that the challenge is designed to improve your nutrition and also to promote healthier eating and an active lifestyle. As a customer, you will get access to tools and trainings to help you do that such as videos from a dietician and a training log, so you can keep track of your progress.

      Now, having said that, we recommend your third meal be a healthy one. It is not restrictive. We do educate you on foods you should be avoiding and/or reducing such as saturated fats, sugars, and refined carbs like enriched flour, for example. We also recommend 2 healthy snacks a day so that you are not ravenous come supper time and then overeat. These are just basic principles and I don’t consider them restrictive – just more educated.

      Please feel free to visit our site and fill in the Guestbook with your phone number and I’ll gladly share my personal experiences with you as well as those of the people I have met since being on the challenge.

      Hi there,
      Thanks for visiting and voicing your concerns. Your points are valid, but do not apply to the Vi-Shape shakes…Let me explain.
      Our protein is a patented Tri-Sorb blend. Here is a quote explaining what that is from one of our scientific advisory board members

      “The Tri-Sorb protein blend is a unique blend of highly absorbable proteins. First we use non-GMO soy that has been processed to remove isoflavones that can impact estrogen. Why soy? It is a complete protein, easily digested, and adequate consumption can help the body reduce cholesterol and c-reactive protein. Studies show that soy can build lean muscle as good, and in some studies better than whey proteins.
      We then use a whey concentrate, and the newest technology in whey hydrolysate. This is the most concentrated and ‘clean’ protein on the market today, and is very expensive. The key reason is it builds lean muscle. The FDA allows it to be called a ‘fat loss accelerant’ as a result, the only protein that can use that claim. Our proteins have been specially processed to remove fat, lactose, and carbs.
      We add in the Aminogen, a patented and clinically tested amino acid to aide protein absorption. Many body builders buy this product in nutrition stores to aid their body. We include it.
      The key is that not all proteins are created equal. If you read the nutritional labels, some will use gelatin to ‘spike’ the grams of protein, great for skin and hair, but not so good at building muscle. Some use milk powder or milk protein, great for bone health, but not so good at building lean muscle. Some use whey, which is ok, but only about 75-80% absorbed. So with ours, its quality, not quantity…and we absorb more because of our blend.”

    what about the effects of soy and breast cancer?please explain what non gmo means.

    • Defisante

      Okay, first things first. The Soy in the Vi-Shape is isoflavone free. It is the isoflavones in soy that have been known to impact estrogen. It is the bodies production and management of estrogen that has been linked to breast cancer. You can find the medical article about it here.

      Now while we’re on the topic of isoflavones and estrogen, that is why male bodybuilders usually shy away from soy-based proteins. I suppose they are afraid of what elevated estrogen levels can do to their bodies – no need to draw a picture here….Yet once again, the Vi-Shape is not like other proteins because the isoflavones have been removed.

      Now for your second question; what is GMO? GMO is an acronym for genetically modified. You have probably seen and heard a lot about how foods are being genetically modified by major producers and we are not completely sure of the side effects of such enhancements on human health. Well the Vi-Sahpe contains non-GMO soy protein.

      Hope this helps.
