We are often asked if the Body By Vi Challenge and the Vi Shakes are compatible with Weight Watchers and appropriate for Weight Watchers Members.

Please add your review below and "Like" with the Facebook  button if you want to share it!

The answer is quite simple. Weight Watchers in general has members counting points. The Body By Vi Challenge has  people replace two meals per day with a healthy meal replacement shake, have two healthy snacks and a reasonable healthy third meal. It is easy to be on Weight Watchers and replace a meal or two with a Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake.

Vi Shake mixed with water is 2 Weight Watchers points. Mixed with skim milk it is 3 Weight Watchers points. Many people will make their Vi Shake with Almond milk and add fruit and vegetables to the shake. It is easy to download the Weight Watchers App and calculate points for any of the hundreds of Vi Shake recipes!

Weight Watchers Members might try a few days following the Body By Vi Challenge meal plan and calculating the points. They will be pleasantly surprised how easy the Body By Vi plan is and might realize that they can generally follow it, and still stay within their point budget without having to actually count each day!

Childhood Obesity Facts

This information  on Childhood Obesity Facts was originally published by the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, GA.  The italicized sections were taken directly from the article.

The original article can be accessed by clicking this link.

  • Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years.

  • The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 20% in 2008. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to 18% over the same period.

  • In 2008, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese.1,2

  • Overweight is defined as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water, or a combination of these factors.3 Obesity is defined as having excess body fat.4

  • Overweight and obesity are the result of “caloric imbalance”—too few calories expended for the amount of calories consumed—and are affected by various genetic, behavioral, and environmental factors.5,6

Our children are the first generation in history that is expected to live a shorter lifespan than their parents. Below I will share more information from the article. Children are being set up by our fast food culture fueled by mainstream media, for lifelong health problems. This is not just a family issue. Childhood obesity is a societal issue that has profound implications for our country as we move further into the 21st century. Studies have shown a correlation between obesity in children and everything from lower IQ to higher risk of cancer.

We are not setting our children up for success when we allow fried food in schools and vending machines filled with candy and soda in cafeterias. Marketing on TV is insane, leading children to believe that Fruity Pebbles cereal is healthy because it has Fruit!

More from the CDC article.

Health Effects of Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term effects on health and well-being.

Immediate health effects:

  • Obese youth are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. In a population-based sample of 5- to 17-year-olds, 70% of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease.7

  • Obese adolescents are more likely to have prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels indicate a high risk for development of diabetes.8,9

  • Children and adolescents who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and social and psychological problems such as stigmatization and poor self-esteem.5,6,10

Long-term health effects:

  • Children and adolescents who are obese are likely to be obese as adults11-14 and are therefore more at risk for adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.6  One study showed that children who became obese as early as age 2 were more likely to be obese as adults.12

  • Overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk for many types of cancer, including cancer of the breast, colon, endometrium, esophagus, kidney, pancreas, gall bladder, thyroid, ovary, cervix, and prostate, as well as multiple myeloma and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.15


  • Healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and physical activity, can lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related diseases.6

  • The dietary and physical activity behaviors of children and adolescents are influenced by many sectors of society, including families, communities, schools, child care settings, medical care providers, faith-based institutions, government agencies, the media, and the food and beverage industries and entertainment industries.

  • Schools play a particularly critical role by establishing a safe and supportive environment with policies and practices that support healthy behaviors. Schools also provide opportunities for students to learn about and practice healthy eating and physical activity behaviors.

Childhood obesity facts must change! It has to begin  both in the home and in the government. Free enterprise does not have a right to punish and damage our nation’s children. What do you think?

Obesity in Children is Threat to Health and Economy

San Francisco Chronicle reported the following article.  The article highlights how crucial it is to address the obesity epidemic in children and adults in the United Stated. Obesity in children is a threat to health and the economy

Read the original article here

Former President Bill Clinton  says there are economic and humanitarian reasons to combat childhood obesity

Clinton spoke in Little Rock on Sunday at a national forum on childhood obesity and said staying healthy would help Americans have more money in their pockets.

Clinton says U.S. residents spend almost 18 percent of their income on health care and that making healthy choices would drive that number down.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that obesity rates in children have nearly tripled since 1980, with more than 20 percent obese and more than one-third of children overweight.

Clinton’s foundation and the American Heart Association  founded the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which in 2006 launched the Healthy Schools Program to provide training and educational resources to schools.

There is a genuine and serious concern among the health care community that childhood obesity is creating a generation of children that will not live as long as their parents. Obesity in childhood sets children up for a host of chronic diseases that will plague them and ultimately shorten their lives. These include, diabetes, heart issues, blood pressure issues and cancer. Unhealthy children grow into unhealthy adults who cannot contribute to the economy and drain resources of their communities and their families.

Starting in childhood is crucial to addressing the obesity epidemic. Even children can benefit from a healthy eating program like the Body By Vi Challenge, adjusted for children.

Is Visalus a Pyramid?

Is Visalus a Pyramid ?

I think it's HILARIOUS that people STILL ask if our company, or any MLM is a "scam" or "Pyramid things" because we've helped SO many people make a 6 or 7 figure incomes in the past 3 years...probably more than ANY Fortune 500 company.
Here's a little education on the Visalus pyramid.
Let's examine the evidence, and YOU decide.
1. Visalus is publicly traded. The SEC or FTC doesn't allow pyramid schemes. Period. Stock Symbol BTH. Check.

2. Visalus promoters get paid commissions for products sold....just like car sales, software sales, retail sales, realtors, insurance agents, etc. Check.

3. Visalus trains their people. Check.

4. We work for money. NO work, NO money. Check.

5. Visalus has a world class legal team, customer service center, shipping team, product development team, marketing team, management team. Check.

6. Visalus has comprehensive policies and procedures in place. Check.

7. 75-80% of people who join Visalus and the Body By Vi Challenge  are strictly customers. Check.

Here is the REAL SCAM: Being sold into building into someone elses dream, to fund their vacations, lavish homes and cars while you work for $8-$20 an hour, work your tail off and get 3% yearly raises if you're lucky. No rewards and incentives for doing your job, no hope for huge pay raises, someone telling you when you can or cannot be sick, go on vacation or spend time with your family.

So let me ask YOU... Mr./Ms W2.... Why are YOU falling for that scam in one of those Pyramid things???

Don't you at least owe yourself a look?

Monster, Red Bull, 5-Hour Energy Review

Monster- Red Bull -  5-Hour Energy Review

A recent edition of Esquire Magazine focused their attention on Energy Drinks.  The title of the article monster, red bull, 5-hour energywas "How To Work Late" .  The picture of the review is included here. What struck me most is the really concerning side effects of these energy drinks. Why would someone do that to their body when their are energy alternatives with no side effects?

For Monster Energy side effects include Jitters, excessive bathroom breaks and over the long time, trouble sleeping and calming down.  No wonder, it contains the amount of caffeine found in FOUR cups of coffee!!

Red Bull might be great helping a man sky dive from space but it leaves a sour taste in your mouth that won't go away no matter what you do. The caffeine content is similar to a cup of coffee but the sugar is over 27 grams!

5-Hour Energy has the same amount of caffeine as Monster and no sugar. It's energy ingredients focus around B vitamins. While there are many good aspects of B's, too much of a good thing is too much. I recently heard of a situation from a chiropractor friend,  of someone having temporary paralysis in their face from drinking too many of these.  People report crashing as they come off the "high" of the energy.

Why not consume smart energy drinks rather than ones with questionable side effects?

Visalus Go has the Instant Energy that you need right away.

Visalus Pro offers sustained energy for endurance and alertness.

5-hour energy alternativeBoth were developed by Dr. Michael Seidman who is listed as one of the top nutritional physicians in the US by the NIH. Both give you the energy you need without side effects found in other over the counter energy drinks. Being energetic in the moment and in the long term means feeding your body with products that actually benefit it. Visalus Go and Visalus Pro will do that as well as Monster Energy, Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy in the short term and much better over time because you won't be risking side effects.

Should I Buy Vi Shake or Order a Vi Shake Sample ?

Should I buy Vi Shake or Order a Vi Shake Sample?

The answer depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For example,  you may have a friend in another state who is a promoter for Visalus and you want to order Vi Shakes from her. But you would prefer to taste it first.  That would be a good reasons to order a Vi Shake Sample. Taste the shake mix that tastes like cake mix and then tell your friend you love it and are ready to order.

On the other hand, if you don't have a connection and are just searching for Body By Vi Shakes on the internet it makes more sense to buy Vi Shake. Here's why. Your initial order of Vi Shakes is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. When you order a Vi Shake Sample you receive just one serving- one shake. But if you buy Vi Shake and just order a $49 Balance Kit, you receive thirty shakes. Now you have the chance to try different recipes and also see how your body responds to two shakes per day for 15 days. If you love it,  go back into your account and buy another Vi Shake Challenge Kit. If you don't like them, you can return the empty bag to Visalus and receive a full refund!!

Should I buy vi shake or order a vi shake sample   is a question I answer every day. Many people end up talking to me because  they decided to order a vi shake sample, picked up the phone because they saw a phone number on the page and preferred talking to a live person. In most cases, we decide that it is better for them to buy a bag for Vi Shake than it is to order a Vi Shake Sample. But in some cases, we determine that the sample situation is better for them.

Either way  - Don't put it off any longer. If you've been investigating the Body By Vi Challenge and the Visalus Vi Shape Shake, get your hands on some. You will see why 150,000 people per month are joining the challenge all across North America. A Shake that tastes this good and works this well is hard to walk away from!
