ViSalus – Body by Vi Weight Loss Challenge Product Review

What was your New Years Resolution?  Did you make one?  You know it’s never too late to set some goals for 2013, and becoming a more healthy you is always a positive step.  I recently was able to experience some of the ViSalus products, and learn more about the Body by Vi Weight Loss Challenge.  I’ve heard good things about the products but this is the first time I was able to experience them.  Before we jump into my experience let me share a little about ViSalus and what they do.

What is ViSalus?

ViSalus is a healthy supplement company whose goal is to help people lose weight and reach their fitness goal.  I thought the company name was rather clever, check it out.  “Vi” is the root word for life, and the second part of the word “Salus” means Health and Prosperity.  I thought the same was pretty neat, so I thought I would share. The company was founded in Troy, Michigan in 2005.

You can find a variety of products in the ViSalus catalog such as:

  • Energy Drinks
  • Weight loss products
  • Anti-aging supplements

However they are known for their Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge.  Consumers can choose from different personal Challenge Kits such as:

  • Balance Kit
  • Shape Kit
  • Core Kit
  • Transformation Kit

Are you wondering what the Body by Vi Challenge is?  If you’re looking to transform your body in 90 days you can join the program.

Another fabulous thing you’ll find at ViSalus is something called Challenge Timeline.  This is a digital dairy where anyone taking part in the 90 Day Challenge can track and/or document their progress and transformation.  You’re also able to share information with other members in the Challenge Timeline Community.

ViSalus also has a NEW Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge with a 90 Day Money back guarantee.  Every week during the 2013 year ViSalus will be giving away $10,000 to 10 people who lose 10 pounds.  Plus everyone who loses 10 pounds gets a free “i LOST it” shirt.  Monthly challenge finalists will receive a professional photo shoot and free Vi-Gear.  To make things even more awesome champions will get a $5000 Beverly Hills Wardrobe Shopping Spree!  Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it!  Learn more about the NEW Body by Vi Challenge.

I was provided the ViSalus Shape Kit. The kit included several great products.  I have to be honest with you.  I gave almost everything I received to my good friend Lindzi.  Not because the products are horrible, but because she is at a point where she’s ready to lose weight.  Most of you know I have already been doing Nutrisystem, and I didn’t feel I would be able to give you an accurate review doing both.  So let’s talk about what the kit includes.

The kit includes VI-SHAPE. 

I asked her what she thought it tasted like, and she said it reminded her of a healthy cake mix.  She liked it enough to order more, she says it’s a great meal replacement.  She feels full and energized during the day.

Vi-Shape the Shake Mix is the is a nutritional shake, and offers a filling yet balanced meal to help you lose those unwanted pounds.  It’s made with Tri-Sorb protein blend and prebiotic fiber.  The Shake Mix is also enriched with healthy vitamins and minerals to support your active lifestyle.  You will not find lactose, gluten, or sugar in the Shake Mix.  It’s also Diabetic friendly.

So what’s in it?

  • Tri-sorb protein
  • fiber
  • vitamins an minerals
  • calcium
  • digestive enzymes
  • Non-GMO soy protein isolate (helps support a healthy heart)
  • Whey protein isolate
  • Super-concentrated whey protein hydrolysate (this helps control your hunger while supporting lean muscle).

ViSalus – Shape Up Health Flavor Mix-Ins

Lindzi said these were one of her favorites.  She will add the favor packets to her shakes and oatmeal.  She said, “It gives the shakes and her oatmeal a little flavor, and keeps it healthy.”   The Healthy Flavor Mix-Ins are yummy, and come in several different flavor such as:

  • Strawberry Phyto Power
  • Banana Energy Charge
  • Peach Complexion Mix
  • Orange Everyday Defense
  • Chocolate Cardia Care

These are easy to use, just add to your ViSalus Vi-Shape Shake Mix to change it up and add healthy benefits.  Lindzi loves to add them to her shakes, and oatmeal to change it up a bit. You can also add these awesome flavor packages to your food such as: cottage cheese, ice cream, and even your beverages.

I also received three boxes of Nutra-Cookies and two Nuero Packets.  I have to say, I really enjoyed the Nutra Cookies.  They come in three different flavors Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate Chip, and Peanut Butter. All three flavors were great, but the Peanut Butter was by far my favorite.  I gave Lindzi two boxes of the Nutra-Cookies, I had to keep the peanut butter.  They are something that is okay to eat on my diet, and taste awesome.  My children thought they were yummy too, lol.  Yes, my toddler and 7-year-old would sneak in and grab one every chance they had.

What really makes the cookies great is they are all-natural and truly the perfect mini-meal.  They are made with ViSalus’s Tri-Sorb protein system, prebiotic, fiber and antioxidants.  The cookies are not only yummy but healthy too.  They supports a healthy immune system, digestive system, and do a great job curbing your appetite.  There’s 14 cookies per box, and they can be used as a healthy snack, or a meal replacement.  One cookie as a snack and two for a meal replacement.

I don’t know about you, but when I diet I always seem to get a sweet tooth.  The Nutra Cookies do a great job satisfying that sweet tooth as well.

NEURO Packets – The NEURO Packets are a fabulous way to add a little flavor to your water.  I did keep several of these, and thought they worked great.  I love drinking water, but it can often get a little dull.  The fact that you get a nice boost of energy is awesome!  There’s nothing better that adding a little flavor to your ice-cold water, and getting a nice burst of energy.  The NEURO packets come in two different flavors:

  • Raspberry Boost Drink Mix
  •  Lemon Lift Drink Mix

Does a great job in helping boost your energy.  NEURO Raspberry Boost and NEURO Lemon Lift Drink Mixes help increase energy and become more focused.   There’s Rhodiola, DMAE, and Vitamin B in the drink mix.  Simply grab a packet and add it to your water, and you’re good to go.

Are you wondering why in the world I gave the shakes to my friend Lindzi.  Most of you already know I started Nutrisystem.  I did not think it was a great idea to mix the two of them up, and she wanted to start some kind of diet.  I wanted to help her so I gave my shakes to my friend to help her with her weightless goals.  She’s actually done awesome, hitting the 20 pound mark.  She did however tell me that she has needed to mix things up with the shakes.  She uses unsweetened Almond Milk, 1 1/2 scoops of the ViSalus Shake Mix, and has started adding fruit.  She says banana is by far her favorite.

Lindzi made me one of her specialty shakes with strawberries.  The shake tasted fabulous, filled me up, and left me feeling great.  I think she just needed to change it up, we often get burnt out of we keep using the same thing over and over. It worked out perfectly, her and I are very good friends and I trust her opinion.  Plus, I have seen the results, and she always comes to work with her morning shake.

In my opinion ViSalus is something worth checking out.  If you’re read to make that move into a more healthy you, be sure to learn more about ViSalus.  I have done my homework too, and can tell you there are tons of good reviews out there.  Great reviews about people losing that weight, feeling great, and standing by the ViSalus product.  I know my good friend really like the ViSalus products.  If you want to learn more you can visit ViSalus on their Webiste, swing by their Company Blog, or follow them on Facebook.

I wanted to send out a special thanks to my dear friend Lindzi for allowing me to write about her success with ViSalus.


  • Laurie Nykaza

    The ViSalus Shape Kit would be so wonderful to try. This year I want to work on losing weight and getting healthy too.

  • Andy Brightman

    Before i had struggled severely with my unstructured body, I tried so many gyms and activities, but i didn’t got my desired result. Through one of my best friend I found the some exercises, I am extremely happy with it. By following the instructions of the I have achieved great body.

  • Dorothy Reading

    I’m not huge into weight-loss products. Everything we need we can get and all that. But this looks interesting. I might just check it out.

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    I talked my mom into trying the diet by showing her this review :) She’s type 2 diabetic and has a heart condition that requires her to lose weight. Hoping for the best in her journey, thanks for sharing more information on it so I could help her

  • michelle oakley warner

    im super excited about the fit kit, i need to get fit

  • Robin O

    I am excited to try out the Vi-Slim
    Metabolism Boosting Tablets!

  • Eileen

    Well, I am sick now over ten years and what they call some of it is chronic fatigue. I am not finding anything out there that can revitalize a body without filling you full of caffeine and other stimulants. I am really hoping to try this for the HEALTH/ part of it, not to necessarily lose weight. I have looked into most producst and find some of this would not just work for ME but for my husband and teens. (snacks for teens to get protein and energy without a ton of sugars and carbs most snacks have) Good health and what we put into our bodies makes a HUGE difference in how our body ages. I am hoping this might help with the antiaging too. Thanks for the huge heads up on this product! I am a big smoothie maker….keeps my blood sugar stable and is a easily digested food for me. I’d love to add the powder to them and see if I can pick up some energy!

  • chrissy c

    I love that there is mix ins. That’s something I haven’t seen anywhere else and it’s such a good idea!

  • Mitzi Fisher

    I love the flavors and they different challenges. It sounds like a great plan :)

  • Robin O

    I think it’s interesting that so much of the Vi™ culture is about community…and I like the ViSalus Pinterest page. It’s so inspiring!!

  • michelle oakley warner

    im excited about the energy drinks, i need some energy half way through the day, great review

  • Samantha Baker

    I would love to try the entire transformation kit. I have been looking at their products for a while, and it seems very interesting. This review just makes me want to try it even more!

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    Honestly..this whole program is so appealing to me… Hopefully i can convince my husband to let me at least try the 90 day shape kit once, I’ll be able to lose more weight. My goal is to get to 135 (at 168.5 atm, managed to lose 12.5 since Jan without any supplements but it’s hard to keep going).
    I sincerely think the community would help me get the support needed to push forward and make the right decisions since I have none here at home other than my own will do become better.

  • Amanda N. Douglas

    I am interested in the core kit. I don’t need to lose weight but I need to get stronger. I broke my back a few years ago and I have some other health issues. I have a hard time making myself eat enough and I think this will be a great way to supplement my diet.

  • Audra

    Very excited to try the flavor packets that are added to the shake mix.

  • Robin O

    I am very very interested in trying the Get Healthy-Balance Kit…health and balance are a good idea!

  • Robin O

  • Mitzi Fisher

    I would like to try the •Anti-aging supplements :)

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    Your friend’s idea of adding fruit to it makes the shake sound even more appetizing <3

  • MD Kennedy

    The mixins are so unique! I would love ot try the Healthy Balance kit…

  • Jessica C

    Shakes & cookies look good!

  • Robin O

    I think it’s great that they have “crave-worthy recipes from the Body by Vi™ Community” on the website! I am always looking for tips to help lose weight!!

  • Tricia

    I’m just so happy to have read your review as I was looking into buying this just yesterday! I love God’s timing with things. As I was looking into this yesterday, I told my husband I can’t believe more people don’t know about this. He found out about it from a friend through facebook. Your review just confirmed a lot of things for me! Thanks so much! :)

  • Lanie

    There products look pretty good and I have heard good things. I enjoyed your review and now I am even more intererested. My only concern is the cost of it. It looks like it gets pretty costly with tall the different things they want you to take.

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    I love what they did for the product name 😀
    Pretty clever 😛

  • Debra

    I’m excited to try their shakes – you make them sound SO good!!! YUM!! Thanks for the review – I feel more confident about purchasing this product being that you have also read OTHER reviews that back up the same information you presented – THANKS!

  • Immaculate Copeland


  • lisa

    I have trouble eating food. This might be good for me. I need the vitamins. As well as something that tastes good.

  • Robin O

    I think the Rising Star Program ViSalus has set up is interesting…if you reach Rising Star in your first 30 days you lock in an exciting new level of rewards!

  • Chiller

    This sound like a great product. I would love to try it.

  • Roberta Hornbeck

    I like the flavors and didn’t realize it is diabetic freindly.

  • Sandie

    Loved your review…I’ve checked into some other brands and all they were interested in was signing me up…not that there’s anything wrong with that, but fill me in on the important facts as you have done first. I think this is something I would truly love to try…

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    Flavor add ins..
    GREAT IDEA! I know a lot of people who quit diets because they get sick of eating/drinking the same thing over and over again.
    Using these would give you a variety to mix & match to find your favorite! Spice it up, so to speak 😀

  • Robin O

    I think the Challenge Timeline Community. sounds interesting–I have never really tried to join a community when trying to lose weight, but it’s probably a good idea!

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    Most meal replacement shakes I’ve heard about were described as simply “disgusting” ( They reeked of soured milk).
    A healthy cake mix flavoring… Might be like the promotional shake they had at Zaxby’s that I never got to try… and was so sad haha. Of course THIS is a much healthier version 😀

  • Sam Dock

    I will keep this in mind, Im going to have some baby weight to loose soon!

  • jennifer wexler

    the nutra- cookies look good

  • M Chamney

    I just want to try the shakes

  • cathy henatyszen

    Sounds like a great plan… the cookies sound great too…hehe

  • Robin O

    Thanks for sharing this info on the Body by Vi Challenge!
    I would especially like to try out the Banana Energy Charge in the Vi-Shape Shake Mix. Sounds like something I could use!!

  • Renee Griffin

    I am really excited to try the shakes. I really hope I win this.

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    Since I am having to be constantly on the go, the Challenge Timeline would make it so much easier to update from my IPod rather than carry around a notebook (which I forget to write in at least twice a week 0.0 ) so you can track and see what is working and what isn’t working as far as the ideal weight loss track you are hoping for 😀

  • Barrie

    I like that in 90 days there will be a change in your body!

  • Julie L

    those drink packets look nummy

  • laurie nykaza

    I like that the shake is a balanced meal and the flavors look great

  • Melanie Butler

    My cousin has lost a lot of weight and kept it off. I have tried the shakes. I love them. I have certain food allergies and the shakes never made me sick. I used when I did not have access to an allergy free meal

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    Those cookies do sound very appeasing haha. I wonder if I would be able to fight off my husband so I would have enough to last me the 90 days!

  • Lori Tobin

    I’d love to try this. If it is as good as it sounds maybe I would stick with it for once!

  • Carey Campbell

    I would love the Neuro water enhancers!!!

  • Julie L

    the personal challenge kids sound like they would work well in my life

  • Audra

    Very informative and would love to give this a try!

  • lyndsey

    I absolutely LOVE Visalus! I lost 20 lbs and have kept it off this past year by drinking one shake a day, eating better, and exercising. It was so easy to follow, and the shakes are yummy. Plus they have the 3 for free – refer 3 friends and get your kit for free. It has been so rewarding for my health, and my finances! I attached a link to my page for before and after pics! :)

  • sharee hill

    i weigh 280 pounds and i need something that is going to work because nothing else seems to, and i’ll take anything that tastes good

  • Jenn

    I dont need to lose too much weight so I would like the tone down and shape up product

  • Sacha Schroeder

    I love the idea of the mixins! Thanks for the review!

  • Rosemarie Dalley

    My sister in-law is working on her 2nd 90 day challenge and says she is in it for life :)
    This review helped reassure me that the weight lost is effective (she lost 53 lbs in her first 90 days!!!)
    The lactose free is what really catches my eyes…I keep searching for an affordable dietary supplement program that has more positive results than negative and not many offer that. HUGE PERK for me 😀
    If I can ever afford to do this (I’m a stay at home mom to a wonderful 22 month old) when I have an income, I would defiantly be interested!

  • Marylou Sakosky

    I would be so blessed to get this and really try as i was just in hospital for phnemoina and all the vitimains in the healthy one i am sure i need .I loss my Randy from a massive heart attack on Nov 10th an then my brother went 3 weeks before him amnd my mom too so i a so close to just being in a depression i have not ate right at all .its hard now witn it jst bein me too .

  • Emily B.

    I have such a random schedule (mostly sleep) and it makes for not being able to eat properly or at the correct times. I would hope these Vi shakes would help me stay on track. Based on what you’ve learned and what others say about the product it seems quite doable. :) I could lose about 30 lbs too 😉

    The transformation kit is what interests me. After the birth of my son 2 years ago I have struggled to lose weight, I need to knock off 100lbs to be at a healthy weight. From reading the article and the website the shakes and the metabolism boosters is what I would love to try.

    • James

      Good review? Only if you are a promoter or a friend of one. Do your research prior to getting involved in a multi level marketing business. Keep your friends and family. Eat healthy and exercise. God bless.
