You can look back at this previous thread. In other words, there are a lot better alternatives than Visalus.
Also be careful about signing up to sell the stuff. I have seen a lot people having their credit cards charged multiple times with no refund.
Tell your mom to save her money and get off the couch.

Another good thing about Body By Vi is that the shakes are a "transfer of spending" not an additional expense. You are replacing meals with a shake that is less expensive, low carb, low sugar, gluten free, lactose free, low sodium, full serving of fiber & calcium, 23 Vitamins & Minerals, Pre-Biotics, Digestive Enzymes and 3 types of PURE protein! Drop me a line for a free sample... and for more info go to my website

Visalus is not like all the others and there is no double credit charges on the other hand they have the best program (and i have been on a few others) and you really get money payable 5 times a month (once every week and and the 5th on every 15th of the month). Another thing that Visalus as different is that you get a BMW on the second rank (Regional Director) and myself i am getting mine this month and i only started on Feb 28th 2011!!!

Hulk Hogan? Ex-wrestler who took Steroids and later admitted to it in a documentary. So he senses another MLM cash cow and decides to jump on it, that's expected since he is/was going through a nasty divorce.
Emmith Smith? Ex-NFL superstar who helped led the Dallas Cowboys to a few Superbowls. News Flash: Football players especially running backs HAVE to be in shape/fit to be as superior as he was back in his glory days, therefore he was already on strict optimal diets designed for him. Pretty sure Vi product didn't exist at the time. Just a hunch.
My point: Its another MLM scheme just like all the other products/crap that's out there with hired big names to help push a product that the bodybuilding/health industry already had out to begin with.
So, boys and girls, are YOU up to the challenge to understand that it takes hard work, determination, and knowledge to achieve the body/goals you desire?
Be smart. :P

Just wanted to add a little something here!! I did just sign up for visalus!!.. I would like to start off by saying I am not trying to convince you to join or have your mom join!! so I am not going to get paid to tell you this. just being honest!!
If people were smart , they would get off the couch and workout and eat healthy.. but to be honest people are lazy!
but yes eating the right foods and working out does help!!
but ive been working out and trying to eat health for as long as I can remember, but junk food tastes good, and life slows you down, and its tough to find time to get all the right foods you need ...most people end up with fast food.. or microwavable foods. "For Me", Visalus stops those cravings to stuff my face with whatever ... has a good balance of carbs, proteins, and fiber and etc.... to give me energy, maintain my fitness goals.... while still feeling energized throughout the day!!!
So yes.. there are many, many ways to be healthy and get fit... but for me, Visalus is helping me get to my fitness goal... staying lean and mean.
anyway.. if you have any questions feel free to write!!

Before I got into bodybuilding, I had to lose some weight (around 50lbs). Yea, I tried Visalus because I got sucked into all their marketing, and thought it was an easier way to lose weight and be healthier. Boy was I wrong. The shakes were disgusting, it made you sh*t bricks about 3 times a day, and my energy levels sucked. All for a whoppin' $150ish a month. I lost about 10lbs. the first month, probably by going to the bathroom 3 times a day, but then it plateaued for the next 2 consecutive months. It's not until I dropped the shakes, and did some research on clean, healthy diets that I lost the weight. I will never recommend their product over a clean diet anyday.http://joneallen.com

I didn't want to start a new thread, so I'll post here: went to a Visalus house party about 12 hours ago. A few people where there.
Hell, Iris Kyle and Hidetada Yamagishi was there, which was cool. Very nice people.
I'm not so sure as to the efficacy of the products, and I'll plop down a couple hundred dollars to find out. As a business model, some of the marketers/sellers do VERY well for themselves. I'm not sure selling is for me, as I'm not a very influentially persuasive type of person.
Looking at the ingredients, they look quality enough. Protein and carbs aren't as high as store bought supplements. Their claim is that the body can only process 25-30g of protein per hour anyways, so having overstuffed protein and carbs would lead to bloat rather than results. They also emphasis that their shakes have some amino acid enzyme blend that helps utilize all that stuff.
One thing I'm not a big fan of is soy, and they do use that in their product, but they claim that the isoflavones have been filtered out.
Anyways much of the presentation was geared towards become a user/seller of the products and I didn't get enough science about the products themselves. I may try once.
As for selling the stuff, I'll stick to my stocks and gold for now.

ok.. visalus is big in my area and its mixed emotions.. visalus is one of those things that you hafta sink alot of time and effort into to make it work... on the other hand.. it can work.. i believe the bmw thing is bs cuz the moment you dont make ur numbers you hafta make the payment urself..
the products contain soy which for men isnt very good.. it can promote bitchbtits(bad wording) and on females soy has been linked to cancer.. now im not saying visalus does these.. but its in the products .
the 90 day challenge.. ok lets b honest.. if you find someone new to exercise.. no matter what they do. the first 90 days are newb gains anyways.. so i think thats what visalus was aimed towards .. now it does have good stuff in it and does taste great.. but there are cheaper routes imo.. ive heard ppl that work and sell visalus themselves who say they wuld nvr put it in there diet. but then i heard opposite also..
im just sharing what i have seen heard and know.. not flaming and dont intend on starting anything.. i just think a multi vit and whey wuld b easier and better for you..6'5 285ibs

All it is, is an overpriced powdered multi and protein. I'm not even sure if it's WPI, could be all soy protein. Ever smelled a bottle of multi's? Just imagine how delicious it would taste as a powder!!! There is also question into the shelf stability of powdered multi's. Like pumped12 said, just stick with whey and a multi and save yourself some $$$.

OK, per my earlier post, I've come to a conclusion:
Stick to whey/casins/egg albium stuffs. Like Isopure, ON Whey, or whatever else you people love to use. The stuff is overpriced, marketed and sold in a way that you can only buy it overpriced, and their soy protein is not well filtered as just about everyone who uses it seems to complain about cramping and gas.
You are not going to be getting good muscle gains on this stuff, and people who claim weight loss is dubious as weight loss is simply a numbers game.

Well Visalus does work but be ready to starve a bit. You should follow their indications to never be hungry and to eat at least 3 healthy snacks a day for example 1 portion of low fat white cheese with an apple. And dont forget to hit the gym, I lost 20 pound doing Visalus doing 1h30 biking 5 times a week and 30-40 min running 3 times a week for 3 months. The first thing you will notice when you start doing that is the lack of energy so you will undoubtly have to add some whole food to Visalus (like 2-3 eggs and fruits) and eventually stop doing it. You can't do **** with a 1200 calorie diet. I worked hard and it's not VI who did that, only me.
If you want to stay in front of your tv watching Biggest looser and hope to be lean, Visalus is for you.
Otherwise forget about Visalus, Mcdonald and frozen prepared meals and let's do some exercise, it'll be way better.

Did it for a while and it is crap. Pyramid scheme for selling it and for taking it, it is a low calorie shake that's it. No different than protien powder and a multi. People lose weight and muscle on it because of the drastic cut to their calories. Take 2 shakes and 1 meal a day and you can easily be around 1000 calories max. ScamMeet lifts
