Vi Shape Review - Does This Meal Replacement System Work? Are cost and long-term side effects deal breakers?

Vi Shape Review

Vi Shape company employees, have you ever even taken your own product? This line has only been on the market for a few years, but it’s already generating a lot of interest, so we conducted an in-depth review of the ingredients, side effects, customer service and clinical studies. We also looked at online experiences from current and former users of this meal replacement supplement. Then, we summarized what we found to give you the info you need.

EDITOR'S TIP: Combine Vi Shape with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

First off, Vi Shape is a meal replacement shake that contains a protein blend, pre-biotics, aminogen, vitamins and fiber. It’s meant to be taken 1-2 times per day in place of food and it only contains 90-140 calories per 2-scoop serving. It can be consumed anywhere and it’s easy to mix.

Vi Shape is produced by ViSalus and has been around for about five years. These shakes are meant to curb your appetite and reduce your daily caloric intake which can help you lose weight. Their products seem to taste OK to most customers and some people do see weight-loss results, but read on…

Price – “Too Much Money?”

The first thing we looked at with Vi Shape ingredients was the price dieters are expected to pay. The products are distributed by consultants as part of their multi-level marketing structure. While we don’t have an issue with MLM companies, this particular choice can only be purchased in large quantities or at an exorbitant markup. If you’re unable to find a friend that is a consultant, you’re likely to pay $150 a month for the meal replacement shakes. “Some customers do lose weight with these shakes,” said our Research Editor, “but the dent in your wallet may leave you unable to stock up or stick with it.”

“The MLM strategy is frustrating and makes these products cost way too much,” said one user.

“I feel like the pyramid scheme of MLM makes these cost more than they should,” claims another.

Long Term Side Effects – “An Issue”

We often find products that leave the dieter feeling off, but not with a meal-replacement. Vi Shape’s negative side effects quickly became apparent. “Vi Shape lead to blurry vision and partial vision loss in addition to various other health issues,” said another.

There were several reviews with similar complaints and the serious nature of these had us worried. Another customer lost weight without side effects, but had her own complaint as well: “Because of the dangerously low caloric content, Vi Shape forces your body into starvation mode, which can have unintended negative consequences.”

While researching diet supplements and weight-loss routines, we’ve found that whenever there is something particularly troublesome about a product or work out (poor taste, side effects, high cost, etc.) the likelihood of long-term, sustained success is slim. If Vi Shape really does cause adverse reactions, it could make it difficult for dieters to stick with the program.

The Science – “Clinical Backing?”

Vi Shape’s promises aren’t exactly backed up by clinical studies and unbiased research, but it has been proven that minimizing caloric intake will help you lose weight. These shakes do a good job at helping you replace your meals, but they may take it too far. We also have issue with the fact that science does nothing to show how this product is different from hundreds of others that cost less. When we don’t see trials proving a company’s claims, it’s difficult to believe in them.

The Bottom Line – Does Vi Shape Work?

So now, what’s the 411 on this line? We like the longevity of the company behind Vi Shape and their shakes are easy to mix and seem to taste pretty good, but we can’t ignore the lack of data backing their claims. We’re also concerned about the high price because of the MLM distribution, the alarming negative side effects and the fact that there are comparable products that cost less than half.

If you’re looking to slim down and lose weight, we suggest you start on a supplement that delivers on their promises and offers an affordable solution and realistic weight-loss claims backed by published research.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. This supplement contains a proprietary blend of four powerful ingredients that may help you lose weight by burning fat and boosting metabolism. The claims are all based on published trials and research and we found no mention of harmful side effects. The reviews online are full of positive comments from satisfied customers that have lost with the formula.

The makers of Leptigen are even providing a limited time Special Trial Offer because they are confident in the supplement. This is a great way to start trying this new product.

How Does Vi Shape Compare?

Previous Vi Shape Review (Updated February 17, 2014):

What You Should Know

Click Here To See Our Highest Rated Review

Vi-Shape is a weight loss shake mix marketed by ViSalus Sciences and affiliates working for the company. Interestingly the company is in good BBB standing. The ingredient list was VERY hard to find as it is not listed on the official website. This is very disappointing because the flavor is one that many dieters love, so it could be a good source of protein for weight loss. We did manage to find a comparison of Vi-Shape and another shake that alluded to the possible ingredients. The price of the Vi-Shape shake mix is $59 per 30 servings. That is far more expensive than other protein powders that cost between $15 and $20 for more than 100 servings.

List of Ingredients

Protein Blend, non-GMO Soy Protein, Fibersol, Pre-biotics, Aminogen, Vitamins.

Product Features

This ingredient list tells us enough about the product to convince us that there is nothing spectacular about Vi-Shape protein shakes. The first ingredient, protein blend, is likely a combination of different types of protein. Whey protein could be one, but that would only be a guess based on the majority of weight loss shakes on the market.

Soy protein is a healthy, lean choice that we like in a protein shake. There has been some question about soy's ability to feed estrogen based cancers, but there is no evidence that soy from a soybean plant has any effect on cancer.

Fibersol is a source of fiber and the appetite suppressant in this supplement. Fibersol will slow down the digestive process making food last longer in the stomach. Many weight loss supplements include a source of fiber, like glucomannan, for this same purpose.

Pre-biotics are all about improving digestive health. There is mention that the Vi-Shape shake mix contains vegetable and fruit extracts. They try to break this down on their official site. Particularly of concern would be broccoli extracts and the like. If this is the case, the pre-biotics may help the intestine digest the protein more effectively without gas and bloating.

Aminogen is an interesting ingredient that is commonly used in bodybuilding supplements to boost nitric oxide levels. It is a source of health amino acids which help protein to digest, but is not often found in weight loss products.

Vitamins round out Vi-Shape making it an effective meal replacement.

Advantages

  • Tastes great.
  • Low calories - 140.
  • Good source of protein.
  • Healthy meal replacement choice.

Disadvantages

  • Lack of information on the official website.
  • No complete ingredient list.
  • More expensive than other protein meal replacements.
  • Only 30 servings per container.

Conclusion

Vi-Shape may taste better than the competition but it is also about three times more expensive. This and other business aspects are addressed on the wikipedia page. There is not even a complete ingredient list for dieters to read before making the plunge. We suggest looking around for a comparable product for less.

    I used Visalus a few years ago and lost about 80 lbs. I stopped as I got tired of them. I have tried many different things and always come back to Visalus. Items like this are only a tool and are not magic potions and are not for everyone. I have just started using the shakes again and lost 6 pounds my first week. Everyone needs to use the tools they are most comfortable with.

    I have been on the shakes for a month and I have gained! I follow all the rules and can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong!? Plus I walk and exercise regularly. I know a close friend has the same problem. We won’t be continuing with the shakes due to weight gain!!!

    Amanda

    Prolly because you ate with the shakes… Your suppost to replace a meal with the shake. Or your using it too much. Every body is different. I take my shake once a day and eat 2 healthy meals a day with healthy snacks water orange juice cranberry juice lemon water and I exercise and the product works for me. I’m also a paediatrician. People claim the product is unsafe but what they don’t know the products in stores are more harmful and have no nutrition at all. Like boxes of cookies and bags of chips have chemicals we can’t even pronounce…I suggest a clean healthy diet such as fruits, veggies lean meats, clean fruit juice water and replacing one meal with the shakes :))

    [Reply]

    Amber

    For me the shakes have worked and I’m a paediatrician. Perhaps you took the shakes too much with food. Your suppose to replace one or 2 meals with the shakes and have healthy snacks in between and one major carb meal. I replace one meal a day because I believe it’s unhealthy to replace 2 meals a day. I also exercise 3 times per week at the gym. People claim the shakes are unhealthy but the stuff sold in regular grocery stores are unhealthy itself. Some chemicals in products like cookies, chips, crackers, soda pops, juices we can’t even pronounce and have fake sugar in them. Visalus shakes are healthy if you use them right. Don’t replace all 3 meals and don’t eat. Replace one meal, have healthy snacks, eat 2 healthy protein, veggie fruit meals pasta, water, Lemmon water real fruit juice and exersize !!!… Hit the gym and follow the instructions properly and you will see results. Don’t eat shakes with a meal because you will see weight gain.

    This “diet” is built on a foundation of lies. Went to a “party” which is really a sales pitch, where 10 minutes were spent on selling the product, but 30+ minutes spent on selling their “rich and thin” pyramid scheme. Not in writing – but spoken – we were told it would pretty much cure just about anything. Back pain. Fibromyalgia. Hip pain. Migraines. Fat. Low energy. Depression. Irritable bowel. Really? Doesn’t anyone think that perhaps if a magic potion had been invented to CURE every illness EVER, that perhaps it wouldn’t need a “party” to get the word out?

    I am into fitness and consume a varity of protiens but mainly whey and cassin. I ran out of my normal whey protien that i take before and after workouts for better results and quicker recovery of lean muscle so my mother in law offered me some of this and said it was for weight loss so i assumed it was or had whey in it. after taking a sip i realised it tasted like casen which has a grittier textur and flavor since it is more of a slow to break down protien that whey is. Casin is also used in weight loss but more for preventing muscle loss over night while sleeping. Overall it taste good but not for that price and you can probably find better quality whey or casin without the other fillers that taste just as good for less of a price. Just my oppinion not an expert.

    This is a weight loss protein formula not for curing high blood pressure. If you are overweight and have high blood pressure it can be cured by transforming your life, eating healthy, loosing weight and exercising.

    From what I can tell it’s expensive. (I got a sample pack.) Also, the cookies are gross and very plain tasting. The mix for your water is disgusting as well. I’m afraid to try the rest! AND PS DIETS ONLY WORK SHORT TERM! Cut your calories the right way, work out, and eat right. Stop trying to take short cuts.

    I have been given some of this by my daughter to try, it is very sweet & a bit sickly for my taste but improved by mixing in frozen blueberries & raspberries, there was really too much in a serving for me. I would like a savoury soup version. I will say the complete list of ingredients is on the back of the packet so you know what you are taking. I suppose it works out about £1.50 per Shake which is a lot less than you would spend on an average lunch. I hope it works – 6wks until my daughter’s wedding & I want to shift 7lbs. I haven’t tried other weight loss products. A 35gm serving with 250mls semi skimmed milk is 230 calories. It suggests 2 shakes per day then a normal meal either for lunch or dinner.

    Honestly, I’m reading through these comments and seeing how negative majority of these comment’s about this product. I’ve used vi-shape replacing 2 of my meals a day and having 2 snacks a day with a sensible dinner(prep meals) in 6 months I lost over 30lbs starting weight was 230 down to 175. I absolutely love this product. If any one is interested in this product to lose weight you definitely should. Not, only did I replace to meals I also downloaded an app called “fitness pal” it tracked how much carbs,fat and protein I was sopose to eat and counting calories. I also, exercised regularly Monday,Wednesday and Fridays I do strength training and Tuesday and Thursday I would run the treadmill for 30mins and do an elliptical for 30mins I only had a cheat day once a month.

    [Reply]

    Your Name

    I also have had success with this product, Ana. I don’t understand how so many people are having issues? Its not for everyone, I suppose. There is no way you could be gaining weight if you are eating right, exercising and drinking these shakes for a supplement (or any healthy meal replacments for that matter). I could only imagine that the reason for the weight gain would be due to an underlying issue, or you really aren’t doing something right, like you think you are. Maybe? Anyway I always have more energy, and lost 30 lbs in a month and a half…cutting calories, drinking two Vi shakes a day, and exercising. I started at 230 and got down to 198 in a month and a half. It worked for me…I still drink them. Yeah, it might be pricey, but they are meal replacments. Think about all the extra food you buy eating out, and all those expensive coffee trips you make…let’s not kid ourselves 🙂 you save money, at least I have

    I’m reading all of the problems that people are having as well and I’m amazed. This is my story.
    A couple of my church members were selling this shake and having the taste parties and I would see some members post on FB that they took the Vi challenge (meaning they’re committed to change their eating habits using the shake). Well for me shakes as meal replacements was not realistic so I ignored the FB invites. I began to notice that the people who were posting their pictures for the challenge was losing weight. I asked one of them about the product and she told me, so I decided to take the plunge and coming from someone who has tried, practically every diet or change of eating company or product out there (I will not name them because it’s not about bashing other companies) this has actually worked for me!!!
    I need to lose over 100 pounds and when you’re that overweight it’s not so easy to cut back and exercise as so many people are quick to tell you, because your joints hurt and you have NO energy. I started on the shakes the first of April and in my first 30 days I lost 10 pounds which is a healthy weight loss. But even before I saw the pounds drop I started seeing the inches come off. My clothes were fitting me looser. My sister started this after me and she’s lost over 10 pounds in a month, so if you do it…it will work for you. By the way the shake mix is only around $60 per bag (with S&H) for a 30 day supply. It averages $2.50 per serving and used as a meal replacement it’s much less expensive than a meal. Even when you consider adding the frozen fruit to it like I do ($1.00 per bag at Dollar Tree). I love this product so much that I became a promoter of it. I’m not on here to drum up business but just to tell you my story. I feel better and now that I have more energy I have joined a gym and work out about 3 times a week (for now hoping for more physical activity)!
    Good luck and God blessings to all on any form of healthy living that you endeavor to try. Take back control of your health!!!

Plus downloaded fitness pal to keep track of my snacking. I wanted to add the shake to my diet but not sure exactly how. What can i add to it. Its very sweet. I bought the vanilla. I shake it up just in the mixing cup. Should i be using a mixer and adding other ingredients.

You still have normal food, still have snacks, etc. If you don’t know about the actual PROGRAM, then you should not comment on the product. PERIOD!

    I’m down right disgusted withy visalus.. I watched my friends get excited about this scam opportunity and I watched for a year and saw a bunch of people get bmw’s but their income didn’t really increase.. Then after a year I wanted to join bc I thought wow I’m a really motivated excited fun energetic live person that would be great for this as I’ve done promotional modeling, worked as a server at blue martini, and was recently a Hooters Girl before I started my “visalus career”. Totally horrible.. I started the shakes all excited yayyy then had a few people join n more people. Started seeing results, posted videos, started getting the hype out there, and wham smacked me in the face like a ton of bricks!!! I drank the shakes two a day for 4 weeks…. Then my health just plummeted .. I STARTED HAVING GAS HORRIBLE DISGUSTING DUMPSTER RANK GAS, THEN CAME THE ABDOMINAL PAIN AND BLOATING, AND CONSTANT STOMACH ACHES, THEN CAME THE DIARREAH EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR 5 weeks straight… And it didn’t stop there. I started having bloody diarreah and severe dehydration. My lips felt like dry super glue. My skin was pale with dryness I couldn’t absorb the water I kept trying to drink.. N headaches.. I was drinking two shakes a day and stopped when I realized that’s what was causing it. At first it was only gas.. But when I started having bloody diarreah that’s when I had to decide fvck this company and their deceptive marketing and lack of proper warning labels and possible side effects. I don’t have any food allergies and never have, and as a student I have studied nutrition and maintained healthy eating habits on a regular basis. This is a terrible product. It’s starving your body and pumping it with chemicals like sucralose n maltodextrine and no one tells you to be aware of this. I bought up a stock in Gatorade n thank god bc it truly helped revive me. I’m still suffering from the diarreah n combatting dehydration as this product has done some bad things to me. I originally intended on giving this product to my dad to like the company states, “improve his health, balance out his body with nutrients, proteins, and vitamins he could not get unless he ate 8000+ calories a day” however being that he is healing from a traumatic lung cancer removal I thought this would be a good product for him. However after seeing the way it ruined my life n made me lies my job at hooters for health reasons as well as time consuming deceptive business planning that I thought would be good development has spiraled into a terrible night mare and I refuse to let my friends and family use these harmful products!!! They have all been there and heard first hand what happened to me and I’m sorry to my friends and family that have used this product and I hope they get their money and health back. I am definitely pressing a lawsuit ASAP !!!!!

    I have been using the vi shake for 7 months now and I feel amazing! People who complain about the shake they generally complain about any other diet I am sure! People who don’t want to accept the fact that they just can’t stop eating. Food adiction is as bad as any other adiction and often people deny it and blame the diet that is not working!… I’ve been there too! No diet was good enough for me.I would not accept the fact that often have found myself eating stuff I shouldn’t eat while on the diet. One day I looked at myself and I said enough is enough! I started Vi shake and I lost 13 kg. The amount of fresh fruit I have with my shakes is far more then what I would eat before, the nutrients I get from the shake it is much better then the junk food I was eating before! If I would choose between a burger and chips or a nutritious shake I would go for Vi shake. You are not starving with shake because you can always eat a healthy snack if you want like almonds, nuts,and so many other staff that are good foryou during the diet.Don’t suffer and think too much about it make it work and start enjoying life! You can do it!

    140 calories should never be suggested as a healthy meal replacement! This shake is a protein snack to be enjoyed with the rest of a meal to make it balanced. and if you mix it with water… I believe it’s only 90 calories. “Protein Blend”… no thanks … Whey is superior to soy for SURE… I wouldn’t feed these to my dog. 90-140 calories and a sure fire way to send your body into starvation mode … and artificial sugars (sucralose) to sweeten it? No thanks again…

    I feel like there’s a diuretic and laxative in the ingredients. Also, I find that if I don’t drink LOTS of water, I dehydrate and get leg cramps at night.

    I just got some samples of Vi shape and I am debating if I should buy it. after reading all this comments it sounds like you guys are losing weight from starving yourselves not from the shakes. for a healthy lifestyle you should eat 5 meals a day in a small portion but this is not healthy

    [Reply]

    Francine

    Great comment! 5 meals a day is a healthy lifestyle for sure! Don’t buy it… it’s not worth the $

    My cousin started the vi challege snd lost 19 pounds in 2 weeks. You dont starve yourself. You can add fruit, vegetables, yogurt, whatever you like. You also can snack on vegetables or nuts. Anything that’s healthy.

    I add fruit to the product and eat about 3 healthy snacks throughout the day and a GREAT dinner. It’s not starving your body if you do what you’re supposed to do. If someone’s only using the shake mix or the cereal (solid form of the shake) then it will starve your body. But if you’re still eating healthy snacks during the day then you’ll be fine. You have to keep your blood sugar level on an even keel throughout the day and eating 5-6 small meals is the way to do it and this product helps you do just that.

    The taste is great, and it’s low calorie. I have IBS though, and it gives me really bad gas and makes my stomach make some really strange noises. So I had to discontinue the shakes due to that.

    I found Prime90 Moringa enhanced and Protein-rich Dutch Chocolate Meal Replacement to be the best on the market. Packed with 90+ verifiable, cell ready vitamins, minerals, vital proteins, antioxidants, omega oils and other benefits from the Moringa Oleifera tree. 150 calories per serving, delivers 20g of protein and 3g of fiber. Contains many parts of the Moringa, whey protein, but not the type that cause constipation. Great for those with IBS. Pure cane sugar, no surclose. I used this two weeks striaght,for lunch wen I was painting a house in rural Ky and going to a restraunt was not condusive. Oh my Gosh I loved the results.

    I have used the Vi Shake for 54 days and have lost 43 lbs. I am type II diabetic. My fasting blood sugar has consistently been in the high 60′ to 70’s and once in a while low 80’s, which is fantastic! I have cut my levemir from 50 units each evening to 26 units. I go to the gym 2-3 x per week, and walk 1.5+ miles about 5 days per week. I use MyFitnessPal on my IPhone to track my calorie and weight loss goals. I drink 2 shakes per day, and my cost is $99.00 per 30 days, so each shake is about $1.65. I am actually saving money on food because I don’t eat out, and don’t consume as many grocery items. So yes, if you want to really lose the weight, you can with Vi Shakes, but it’s not a magic bullet. If you are gaining weight with the shakes, you’re doing something WRONG! I may look for a different protein product after my 90 days are up, but for now, this is working.

    I used this product for approximately 4 months. During that 4 months I began walking at least 4 days per week, approximately 3 miles per day. I lost 50 lbs. during that four months. I am since off the product as it is hard for me to continue the same routine for a long periods of time.

    I have been taking this for a week Now. I have actually gained weight. This stuff gives me really bad gas, belly cramps and looks like I’m prego because of the bloated belly. My friend said she didn’t see results till two weeks into it but I’m not thinking I can take the added weight and discomfort to see if it even works.

    i also gained weight on the shakes. i do have an underactive thyroid which is controllled by medication, so i dont think the thyroid is the problem. i wont be using it anymore.

    [Reply]

    Tina W

    Actually, Soy and Broccoli are known to inhibit uptake/conversion of Thyroxine so it is more likely that this is the cause of your weight increase . I am a fellow underactive thyroid sufferer so I won’t be taking this supplement because I avoid Soy and Broccoli.

    At a party, these are the only things that are done: samples of the shake are given out for everyone to try, the host, whose house it is, shares their story on why they joined the Challenge and what it has done for them so far, a DVD is played, giving everyone the detailed information about what the Challenge is, and how to pick the kits based on one’s health goal, and finally, at least a second person shares their story and what the Challenge has done for them, usually the person who sponsored the host, which is typically their own friend or family member. During this time, there is no mentioning of “curing” anything, and if there is a mentioning of “curing” by a promoter or a challenger, they are not providing the correct information. At any party, or a pre-party, there is no selling. There is no sales pitch, or people pushing you to do the Challenge or become a promoter. The Challenge is something you do together with your friends and family who you know, and you hold each other accountable for at least 90 days. When one comes to a Challenge party after they’ve heard two tools from their friend or family member, they are already interested in something that they like about the Challenge…they are going to get more information about what they liked about what they heard and saw before the party. So, already, they know what they are looking to do for themselves…now, they are going for the taste, meet others who are taking the Challenge already, and watch the informative DVD, and after all of that, because it is the third exposure, the guest then decides all on their own what they want to do. You have better results when guests voluntarily make the decision on their own without being a salesman, because it’s relational marketing: people who you already hangout with, spend time with, who are your friends, family, etc., who you love and care for. So, why do we have parties? Because it’s duplicatable. Not everyone can be a walking encyclopedia, or a nutritionist, or a fitness expert, or a salesman, or one to conduct a show at a flea market or a mall, etc. But everyone knows how to throw a party at their own home, press play on a dvd player, and press ON on a blender, and share. As for the reviews on this, the best way is to talk to the experts themselves about what the products do, experts consisting of the top 1% human nutritionist, and the top 1% scientist. To get all of the info, the website has every little detail regarding the ingredients, the patents, the research team, the testimonies, etc. Oh, by the way, the Body by Vi Challenge is NOT considered a Weight Loss Challenge, but it could be. The Body by Vi Challenge is a Health and Fitness Challenge, which has a side affect of Weight Loss. So, while other weight loss programs target the fat and only focus on weight loss, the Body by Vi Challenge focuses on health itself, which puts the body to work at MAX Capacity, which then allows all of the systems to start functioning again. This is why you see various results for diabetes, fibromyalgia, migraines, weight loss, muscle building, etc. But, you want the science behind it, you have to talk to the actual experts behind the products and inquire about the research done and why it works. I personally met them, shook their hands, and sat down with them and found out a lot of information, but it is not for me to go out and expose like a walking encyclopedia. They can easily be reached…all you have to do, is ask.

    I have been drinking the shakes once a day forthe past 16 days and I have lost 9 lbs, 7 in the first week and 2 in the second week. I love the taste, live the shakes, but I will stress this to everyone, it is not magic, it will supplement one meal for you but you still need to eat real food, you need to eat healthier foods, excersise, and eat healthier food, and drink lots of water, cut out sodas and drink just water.

    BTW, The price is $49 for 30 days not $59 for 30 days. That’s less then $2 for a healthily meal. Also, the ingredients are listed on the package.

    Yes, it is safe to use for a diabetic. A personal diabetic friend of mine is drinking this now. He went from 2 insulin shots a day down to 1 now and his doctor is very impressed. He is doing GREAT and loving these shakes. This is NOT a cure and should not be used to treat any health problems. Best thing to do is ask your doctor. Many doctors in my area are starting to put patience on this because of the health benefits and life style changes that are happing. LwLisa.bodybyvi.com

    It may be that your calorie intake is not high enough. If you are eating “diet” food for your third meal you may want to try a higher calorie meal that is well balanced and eat healthy snacks in between meals and shakes.
