Body by Vi – 90-Day Weight Loss Challenge
This weight loss challenge provides a reduced calorie diet by incorporating two meal replacement shakes a day containing 200-250 calories, one sensible meal for dinner and 2-3 snacks. A fat-burner supplement and an omega-3 fish oil supplement are both incorporated as part of the challenge along with an appetite-control drink mix, energy drink and cookie snacks to use as needed. The price for 30 days worth of the recommended kit of products is $249.00 and $747.00 for 90 days of products (cookie snacks not included -- see below for detailed list). An online program with menus, recipes, exercise videos, a progress tracker and virtual community is included with the purchase of the kit. Multi-level marketing is used to incentivize participants to earn their monthly kit for free by hosting a party or signing up three new friends per month. Participants are also entered into drawings to win free prizes.
Upon review of the fat burner supplement and hunger control drink mix, it appears that the recommended amounts likely have no benefits based on current research on the active ingredients. The multivitamin and mineral complex is lacking in key nutrients that are deficient in the typical American diet (for example, vitamin D) and excessive for others (such as selenium). The meal replacement shake contains a blend of milk protein (12 g of soy and whey), carbohydrates (7g), and fat (1g), fiber (5g) from a patented fiber blend (digestive-resistant maltodextrin) and the sweetener sucralose.

In short, it is very likely that you would lose weight with the Body by Vi program, but you also risk losing your hard-earned dollars while increasing your chances of nutrient deficiencies (which are naturally occurring during the weight loss process). Analysis of the Body by Vi supplements and nutrition products shows that they are lacking in essential nutrients, padded with excessive amounts of other nutrients, AND they are overpriced. We can get you on a similar program, with high-quality supplements and meal replacements, for literally half the cost. And we’ll never ask you to hold parties where you encourage your friends to buy things so you can make money off them.
