Vi Shape company employees, have you ever even taken your own product? We decided to take a closer look, so our attention turned toward the ingredients, side effects, customer service and clinical studies. Furthermore, we examined hundreds of user comments and reviews. Then, we summarized and condensed to give you the info you need.

What is Vi Shape?

First off, Vi Shape is a meal replacement shake that contains:

  • Protein Blend
  • Pre-Biotics
  • Aminogen
  • Vitamins
  • Fiber [1]

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. [2]

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. “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 this MLM makes these cost more than they should,” claims another.

The price wasn’t wasn’t an issue for every dieter.

As one put it, “For the price, I don’t think you can beat how good these make you feel.”

Vi Shape Customer Testimonials

Vi Shape Side Effects – “An Issue?”

We often find products that leave the dieter feeling off, but not with a meal-replacement. Vi Shape side effects quickly became apparent. “I purchased a month’s worth and from day one started feeling nauseous, awful headaches and sleeping problems,” said a customer. [3]

Another commented, “Because of the dangerously low caloric content, Vi Shape forces your body into starvation mode, which can have unintended negative consequences.” [4]

As we find with most products, what one person experiences another may not. One review said, “Excellent tasting with no side effects.”

“This doesn’t happen to everyone so I would advice others to try it out first and see if there are any side effects,” commented a dieter.

While researching diet supplements, we’ve found that whenever there is something particularly troublesome, like negative side effects, the likelihood of long-term success is slim. If Vi Shape causes adverse reactions, it could make it difficult for dieters to stick with the program.

The Science – “Clinical Backing?”

Vi Shape’s promises aren’t 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. [5]

What Users Are Saying

“Ive used ViSalas for a little while now and stuck on it”…just what I was looking for! Ingredients, stellar and taste is delish. Drink it cold or warm (great w hot coffee added or coffee w a tblspoon of cocoa for nice mocha, etc) or just plain vanilla, etc. Prompt delivery and great price…what more can i say? Outstanding! (I add the ViTrim & fully satisfied for hours!!!)”

“I have been using this for quite awhile. the taste is really good especially considering all the other products on the market. I drink it as my breakfast each morning.”

“A good product but the taste is not great. Hoping to try a different flavor. If it tasted better it would be a higher rating. Got it as a comparable but cheaper version of shakeology”

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. [6][7]

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 this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. 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 Dietspotlight Burn 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.

Vi Shape Ingredients

Vi Shape is a meal replacement / protein shake from Visalus. It supplies 90 calories, 12g of protein, 7g of carbohydrates (<1g sugar) and 1g of fat. That's certainly not enough to completely replace any meal, so there needs to be additional calories or meals added during the day.

We dug deep into the Vi Shape ingredients to give you the details you need.

Non-GMO Soy Protein

This is a type of protein from soy beans that haven’t been genetically altered.

What is it Supposed to Do?

Protein is an essential macronutrient, necessary for the production of muscle. When the body has more muscle, it burns fat more efficiently. Protein deficient diets will struggle with weight-loss. There’s also a potential connection with healthy cholesterol levels.

Clinical Research

According to a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, “The substitution of soy protein for animal protein produced significant decreases in serum concentrations of total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides without significantly affecting high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentrations.”[1]


Fibersol is a patented blend of fiber that can be added to a variety of products to increase dietary fiber content.

What is it Supposed to Do?

Fiber helps regulate the digestive system, keeping you fuller longer, the bowels regular, and helps lower cholesterol. As such, it can help with weight-loss.

Clinical Research

According to a study published in Nutrition Research, “This study demonstrated that 10 g Fibersol-2 with a meal stimulated production of satiety hormones and enhanced satiety.”[2]


Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that help promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestines. They are classified as fiber compounds and are found in some fiber rich foods.

What is it Supposed to Do?

Higher intakes of prebiotics are associated with a number of health improvements, including lower risk of heart disease, better cholesterol levels, improved digestion, higher immune function, lower risk of obesity and weight gain, and reduced inflammation and autoimmune reactions.

Clinical Research

According to a study published in Gastroenterology, “Alternatively, administration of beneficial bacterial species (probiotics), poorly absorbed dietary oligosaccharides (prebiotics), or combined probiotics and prebiotics (synbiotics) can restore a predominance of beneficial Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species. Current clinical trials do not fulfill evidence-based criteria for using these agents in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), but multiple nonrigorous studies and widespread clinical experience suggest that metronidazole and/or ciprofloxacin can treat Crohn’s colitis and ileocolitis”


Another Herbalife product, this is made of protease and calcium.

What is it Supposed to Do?

Protease is supposed to help with better absorption of protein, and calcium is supposed to help with a number of bodily functions, including strong bones and teeth.


We are not sure what vitamins are in the formula, but each vitamin plays a special role in the body’s normal and healthy function.

What is it Supposed to Do?

Vitamins supply the body with the nutrition they need to function correctly at the cellular level. As such they can be helpful in preventing disease.

Ingredients are a huge part of the equation when it comes to losing weight. We’re all about tested formulas shown to help you reach your goals. We think Dietspotlight Burn is a good choice.

Vi Shape Scientific Abstracts

Soy Protein Isolate

Dietary soy protein decreases body weight and fat mass in obese individuals as well as decreasing plasma lipids. Some possible mechanisms are covered in the report, including soy protein’s ability to decrease body fat and blood lipids and improve insulin resistance. Additionally, soy protein’s molecular activities that affect cholesterol homeostasis and fatty acid metabolism are discussed. Biological activities of constituents of soy protein (including soyasaponins, conglycinin, isoflavones, and phospholipids) that are linked to obesity are also discussed. Long-term randomized trials including a large number of obese participants are required to confirm whether this protein delivers long-term benefits and safety in obese humans. [1]


There was an increase in satiety and substantial delays in hunger for 1 and a half to 2 hours following treatment with 10g of Fibersol-2. The delays failed to occur following ingestion of 0 or 5g Fbersol-2 at any point in time. Control and 5g Fibersol-2 supplement failed to suppress hunger increases after meals. Hunger scores elevated and fullness scores reduced greatly (P < .05) at all points in time relating to initial postmeal observations. Glucagon-like peptide-1 and plasma peptide YY were greatly elevated due to a meal consumed with a tea containing Fibersol- at 10g in comparison with 0g or 5g Fibersol-2 (P < .05). The study showed that 10g of Fibersol-2 along with a meal triggered satiety hormone production and elevated satiety. [2]

Xantham Gum

This study was performed twice; one with fiber and another with placebo. Consumption of test meal with drug and placebo triggered a substantial decrease in hunger and elevation in satiety within both subject groups. During the 2 hour observation period, the significant elevation in appetite was observed. No alterations between groups were found regarding hunger, epigastric feelings and satiety. The monumental positive relation between the third factor of Three Factor Eating Behavior Questionnaire (hunger) and body mass index was discovered (r = 48, p < 0.05). 0.5g of xanthan fiber along with a meal trigged substantial changes in satiety. This is most likely caused by a lower dose of xantham gum. [3]


Compiling data from 18 large, epidemiologic studies, sucralose was found that artificially-sweetened beverages are linked to weight gain in children. RCT (randomized control trials) on children are extremely limited and fail to display adverse or beneficial effects of artificial sweeteners. To date, there is no substantial clinical evidence showing that artificial sweetener being directly linked to metabolic health effects. However, it is crucial to study this food additive further to examine potential causes for the rise in pediatric obesity and diabetes. [4]


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

Vi Shape: What You Should Know

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. Money will always be spilled for dietary products, especially those that claim its effective use, Athletic Greens is a superfood protein shake blended with fruits and vegetable extracts.

List of Ingredients

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

Product Features of Vi Shape

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.

Vi Shape Advantages

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

Vi Shape Disadvantages

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

Our Conclusion About Vi Shape

Vi-Shape may taste better than the competition, like Muscle Milk or Slim Fast, 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.

  • thyroid sufferer

    I’m underactive thyroid sufferer is this product suitable to take?

    • Bonnie

      Been using for 2.6 years. Ithe is a complete meal replacement and DOES NOT cost $150 for the shakes. Best tasting meal replacement I’ve ever used. Lost 30 lbs. Now I’ve used it to lose body fat and gain lean muscle. Can’t imagine using anything else. I find many of the findingsame on this report inaccurate. The company has been around much longer than 5 years. They do have scientific backing and actually have placed themselves out there to be scrutinized by industry leaders for their process ando quality.

      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.

    I have a thyroid problem the vi shakes has been wonderful for me i have lost 30 pounds in 3 months the doctor has lowered my medication i walk everyday for 30 to 45 minutes a day ! Feeling great

  • TheHonestOne

    While on the shake, you still need to count and limit your calories for your other meals, depending on your needs. I had 165 lbs and wanted to lose just 10 lbs. I attended a gym for 1 hour each day/5 days a week for 1 month. I did not lose any weigh but lost an inch or so. I then tried the shake for 1 month, once a day from Monday to Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays, I would eat normally (breakfast – 300 calories; eg. one egg with some vegetables and one slice of toast). After 1 month, I lost 10 lbs. Since then, I continued to use the shake from Monday to Friday, once per day, and ate normally on weekends. I have since maintained the 155 lbs (where I would like to be), and have not returned to the gym. I have been using the shake for 3 months now. As a reminder, whether you are using the shake or not, everyone needs to count and limit their calorie-intake daily. Don’t ‘pig out’ because you are on the shake.

    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.

  • Weight gain on shakes
    confused (Verified User)

    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 :))

    • 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.

  •  Tastes good but quite expensive
    jeff (Verified User)

    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.

  • Kelli

    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.

  • frozen blueberries & raspberries
    Grace (Verified User)

    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.

  •  I absolutely loved the product!
    Ana (Verified User)

    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.

    • 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

      • Gale

        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.

        Record what’s written on the labeling, in relation to the portions you prepare for yourself, to start out. Use precise measurements to calculate your target or ideal daily intake.

      How did you lose the weight so fast? Ehat are you doing that I have not? Been a month and only lost a few lbs. I have done this challenge before 6months ago and lost alot of weight but when I stopped it I gained it all back + some. Now I’m on it again and it isn’t working as well as the 1st time I’m confused but it has only been a month any suggestions?

        It’s a life style change, not a diet. Try isagenix! Much better for you also. 🙂

      I’d like to try it if you have samples..my MD recommended this for weight loss, but I want to try prior to buying based on very mixed reviews

    • Messiah

      What am I not doing this time around right? Been a month and only lost a few lbs. I have done this challenge before about 6months ago and lost a lot of weight but when I stopped it, I gained it all back + some. Now I’m on it again and it isn’t working as well as the 1st time I’m confused but it has only been a month any suggestions? What should I do? I am only eating once a day with the 2 supplements and I use my treadmill and other work outs daily. What’s going on?

    • Leonard

      I would like to know if this product can be used for men and how do you use it for weight loss.

  • Vi Shake User

    You are NOT “starving yourself” on this product. You can add stuff to it, like fruit, peanut butter, soy milk, yogurt, whatever you want. Also, this isn’t ALL you would have all day long. 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!

  •  It work and start enjoying life!
    Misha (Verified User)

    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!

    • Your Name

      thanks for your comment, you seem like a positive minded person, so you got positive results..Same here, I’m doing great on it as well as exercising and eating healthy. That’s all that counts.

  • 140 calories should never be suggested as a healthy meal replacement!

    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 just got some samples of Vi shape and I am debating if I should buy it?

    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

    • Francine

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

    • Your Name

      No you don’t starve imnot hungry at any time, I have ra and feel better than anytime in the las 3 years!

    • Your Name

      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.

    • Gale

      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.

  • How to lose weight quicker?
    jordan archuleta (Verified User)

    Hi there im 27 years old I weigh 184 I started at 199.9 I started using the shakes in January started walking on the treadmill for 30 minutes and drinking 2 shakes a day and drinking lots of water. In the beginning of may I started running on the treadmill at 5.5 speed until I hit 400 calories burned I also lift 10 pound weights for 30 minutes I do 100 jump squats and 100 lunges I haven’t lost much weight but me loosing some weight is better than nothing I guess. How can I loose weight quicker?

  •  Loved the product.
    Jessica (Verified User)

    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.

    • Donna J. Wimsatt

      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.

  •  Loved the product.
    JB (Verified User)

    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.

  •  Loved the product.
    GregL (Verified User)

    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.

    this stuff sucks, its too expensive does nothing. It can’t possibly be healthy for you, your starving your body and replacing it with a protein shake! think about it,

      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.

    • 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.

  •  This a health and fitness challenge
    Chris (Verified User)

    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.

  •  This tastes great but cut out sodas
    Msrbutterfly79 (Verified User)

    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.

  • Is this safe for people with Diabetes?

    my father inlaw wants to try this product but he is a diabetic. is this safe to use and what are the ingredients. thanks

    • Robert

      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.
