On the product education call recently, we had one of the best questions asked about our Body By Vi Challenge™. The question was: “I hear that the quicker you lose weight, the quicker you put it back on. Is the Body By Vi Challenge™ a quick, or slow and steady way to lose weight?”
There are many questions in that question, so let’s begin with the first one: Losing weight fast.
There are many programs out there that can have you lose weight fast, only to regain it back quickly. For example, if you cleanse, or drink those cayenne pepper type of drinks you will lose weight quickly. The challenge is you may be losing water weight, and eliminating waste to feel lighter, fast. When you go back to eating normally again, you will gain back the water weight because our diets are so high in sodium. The average American consumes as much as 8x more sodium per day than needed. These fast weight products can also cause you to lose life enhancing muscle, slowing your metabolism and weakening your long term health.
The Body By Vi Challenge™ is different. It is designed to have you see quick results to keep you motivated, and it also provides optimum nutrition to help you lose steadily, and safely. The core of the program is our amazing Vi-Shape® Nutritional Shake, followed by all the other products. Our Shake gives you nutrition that is not easy to get from foods alone. The nutrients found in the shake can compare to those found in over $100 dollars of groceries, including 1.5 cups of broccoli, 1.5 cups of frozen yogurt, 18 ounces of tomato juice, 13 eggs, 15 slices of wheat bread, and more. How can we do this? With concentrated nutrition, and perfectly balanced nutrients. One shake contains the digestive support from enzymes equal to those found in 3 whole pineapples. This helps your body break down the protein, and helps it absorb it for maximum muscle and hunger support. This is just one reason why our shake helps support a healthy heart, healthy digestion, healthy elimination, healthy bones, healthy blood sugar, and more.
Our Balance kit helps those who simply want great nutrition, to get started. By replacing one shake per day in place of a typical breakfast of a bagel with cream cheese, orange juice and coffee you can shave 300-500 calories per day, and fuel your body. This may result in ½ to 1 lb. per week of weight loss if you are overweight, or can help you maintain your healthy weight level once you have achieved your goal.
Our Shape kit helps those who want great nutrition, and better shaping support. By having 2 shakes per day in place of regular meals, along with healthy snacks (10 almonds, protein, fruit or vegetables) you will see weight loss and shaping faster. This is because one pound of fat is the size of a large grapefruit. As you lose fat (and our shake helps you maintain lean muscle) you will see and feel inches dramatically melting away.
Our Transformation kit really helps those that want a dramatic change, to see and feel results. This kit includes our shake, along with additional products to support boosting your metabolism and curbing hunger. This powerful 1-2-3 combination will help your body melt fat, fast. The ViSalus Neuro™ will help keep you hydrated and full of energy. Why is this important? Well, a little over 1/3 of us confuse thirst for hunger, so keeping hydrated helps with hunger. We also know that when we cut calories, we may feel tired and sluggish, so Neuro helps support healthy energy for the body and brain. Lastly, we know that keeping hydrated can improve our metabolism. The Essential Oils in the transformation kit also help you on your way to the body of your dreams with healthy and robust Omegas. These support joint flexibility as you work out, along with a healthy heart. And because you’ve got the special oils your body needs to function, it will support your efforts to burn fat, build lean muscle, and get in great shape.
Along with the products, the best part of the Body by Vi Challenge™ is that if you join it with 3 other people, your product can be FREE. When you are embarking on a new way of eating, it is helpful to have others share the journey to keep you motivated, supporting long term weight loss.
Lastly, we have maintenance. Many programs that have you lose weight quickly, see you gain it back because they don’t offer a maintenance program. The Core Kit has all you need to maintain the shape you worked hard to achieve, fueling your body with the ultimate in fun, flavorful, and easy to take nutrients.
So share the program, share your results, and have fun losing weight quickly, steadily, and help maintain your health with Body By Vi.
