Do Body By Vi Shakes suck?

Recently there has been a lot of talk in my Facebook stream about weight loss. I think it’s something that is constantly on a woman’s mind, especially the year or two after having a baby.

I honestly only have about 5 pounds to lose, but once you realize that 5 pounds doesn’t go anywhere fast, its easy to become obsessed with the hows and whats of getting it off. I tried calorie counting but it made me feel punished and obsessed with food, I have been doing some light exercise in the house but so far I have not made real serious exercise a priority and I am aware of that. It is probably where my personal failure is at.

I also have this terrible scar from surgery and it gives me what is fondly known as the “C Section Shelf”. No amount of crunches hit that targeted area with the scar, so it’s a very difficult and specific way that you have to take it down…IF you can even get it there.

Most people just think you are still pregnant.

It is super hard to get motivation when you have a 9 month old and a 7 year old and work from home. At the end of the day I want to do…well…nothing.

And I want to do that nothing with a bowl of vanilla ice cream on the couch curled up with  my spouse watching the DVR.

At any rate, my good friends on Facebook sent me a sympathy box of Body by Vi. I have seen it everywhere. People posting how great it is, before and after pics, and how tasty it is. I said OK, fine, send it to me, I will give it a shot and test it out. Personally I am not sure that any sort of diet plan is going to work for someone that needs to lose as few pounds as I do, but hey, if it tastes amazing and will make me look like Bar Refaeli, I am so there.


Yesterday I busted open the box, but before I tried it myself, I asked my babysitter to test it out. She has no affiliation with anyone with Body by Vi, no friends on the system, and isn’t a chronic dieter. She does want to lose weight and has been exercising and keeping track of her diet. She has lost four pounds in the past week the old fashioned way.  She had a baby less than 6 months ago and also major surgery.

Here is her completely unbiased and honest opinion on the Body By Vi shakes:


I think I am going to get Lacey to test everything around here.

Have you tried a weight loss program? Did it work? Did you fail? Did you succeed? Tell me!

Hi, y'all! If you got this far, awesome . I am assuming you want to know more about me. I am a *cough* 36 year old mom of 2 great kids, 6 rescue animals and proud wife of my high school sweetheart. This blog is my outlet and allows me to pretend I am a kid at heart. I get to play with glitter and glue, eat lots of sweets (its for the blog, I swear!) and connect with readers and friends. As a blogger I love to share with you- so the rundown is that I am currently reading this, using these for calmer bedtimes, giving away this, and suggesting here if you ever wanted to be a blogger yourself.

  1. There are a lot of people who love the body by vi shakes, and quit a few who hate them and the ingredients in the shakes, I have tried them and I think the taste good and that is important because if they didn’t taste good people wouldn’t drink them right? I don’t think the company really expects the customers to drink them for the rest of their lives hence the name 90 DAY CHALLENGE so I don’t see the harm in drinking protein shakes for the next couple of months.

  2. When it comes to fitness in the world, we need help! In the end, a healthy diet and exercise are what people need. We just need to find a way to convince them all of that.

  3. Hello i was just browsing the web to find it more about the VI shakes and well the real deal is they aren’t good for you and everyone needs to start reading labels because you shouldn’t east anything e with unfermented soy in it soy is terrible for you and any one who would knowingly sell this crap needs a swift kick below the belt
