What is Body by Vi?

ViSalus Sciences just launched a new Health challenge called Body by Vi. I have had success losing weight with ViSalus products in the past but I had reached a plateau and have been unable to motivate myself to take it to the next level. So when I heard about the Body by Vi 90 day challenge, I decided to TAKE THE CHALLENGE!!!

Ok - so Body by Vi has 3 kit choices that depend the seriousness of your health goals:

Balance Kit seems to be for small weight loss goals, or to get you started feeling healthier.

Shape Kit looks like it is what you do to see a change in your overall body shape.

Transformation Kit (what I chose) says it has everything that I need to help me see and feel maximum results. (I like the sound of that!)

Here is a picture of my Transformation Kit.

Here is what it comes with:

Vi-Shape Shake Mix (60 servings)
Vi-Slim Metabolism Boosters (30 servings)
Vi-Trim Appetite Suppressant (30 servings)
Shape-Up Flavor Mix-ins: Banana, Chocolate, and Strawberry (45 servings)
Omega Vitals (30 servings)
Neuro Smart Energy Drink: Raspberry and Lemon (30 servings)
Online Health Membership
Program Guide with a journal, 90-day exercise plan, 90-day walking plan, & sample week menu.

I am sooo excited to get started on this challenge! If you want to join me go to and click Join the challenge! There is a lot of pictures and videos on there that you can see too. ;)

Body by Vi Challenge - Day One: motivated and (surprisingly) satisfied!

This morning I started the Body by Vi 90 day Challenge - and I am excited!! I think that there is probably nothing that can motivate me more to transform my body than seeing myself in a bikini! ;) I was headed to the Huntington Dog Beach today -- so needless to say, I was pretty pleased with myself as I drank my protein shake this morning.

Today's Shakes:
Strawberry Banana Vi-Shake : 2 scoops Vi Shape Protein Shake mix, 8oz non-fat milk, banana energy mix-in, Vi Trim appetite suppressant, and 6 frozen strawberries in a blender... yum!
The O.G. Vi Shake: 2 scoops Vi Shape Protein Shake mix, 8oz non-fat milk, Vi Trim appetite suppressant in the Body by Vi Shaker cup... easy and quick when you are on the go ;)

I've tried several different diet and weight management plans in the past - but none of them were as straightforward, cost-effective, or downright easy as this Body by Vi Challenge. What I really love is that you set your own goals. They can be ambitious or small based on how you want to change your body. I also like that I don't have to weigh myself in public or carry around any boxed meals.

So what are MY goals for the next 90 days? (Yes, I am going to make them public.)

--- Follow the Body by Vi Exercise Plan (do 3 sessions strength training & 3 sessions aerobic training per week)

--- Replace 2 meals per day with a Vi - Shape Protein Shake

--- Take Vi Trim Appetite Suppressant and Vi Slim Metabolism Boosters once per day

--- Cut down sodas to 1 per week -- replace with Neuro!

--- Drink at least 6 glasses of water per day

--- Get into a single digit size

--- lose at least 30 pounds... that's 1/3 pound per day! yikes!!

So... will I make it? Stay tuned to find out. :)
