ViSalus 90-Day Challenge Week 1 Review. PLUS GIVEAWAY!!!

I have been needing to lose weight for a long time. Especially after my daughter was born, and I had kept the baby weight and then gained more.

I am way to ashamed to say what I actually weigh or what size I wear, but it was definitely unacceptable for me.

I knew I had to do something, but nothing I have done before ever worked.

I think most of that was due to the fact that I was trying to create my own plan, and I didn't really understand what I needed to do, I ended up cutting fat way down, but eating too many calories(or so I think).

All I know is that I might loose a bit, but I would also gain a bit. I was always starving and just felt totally deprived, and it was as much mental as anything. For one reason or another(usually lack of results in a reasonably quick time) I always quit.

Since I have heard so many success Stories about ViSalus, I really wanted to give it a try, just to see if it would be something that I could do and see results.

One if the first things that really stood about to me is the total confidence that the ViSalus owner have in their products. Just the fact that I am doing this review for them shows that. They knew it would work for me, before I did.

They are really nice and made sure any questions I had were answered quickly and completely.
The products shipped super fast, and I got everything I could possibly need to succeed.

In addition to some extras, I got 3 of the Transformation Kits(90 day supply total). These kits supply everything you need to lose weight. Each kit is a 30 day supply and contains:

2  Bags Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake Mix(60 servings per bag)
This is your staple. Vi-Shape is the main component to the 90-Day Challenge since this is used to make shakes for your breakfast and lunch meals.

Thank goodness it tasted fantastic or that would be difficult, but they taste unbelievably good.

You just mix 2 scoops of powder with 8-12oz of Skim Milk or Soy Milk(I use about 10oz Skim), and add in some ice to make it cold and thick(and a larger portion). You can mix in most anything(calorie friendly in mind) else you want too, for an even more exciting experience.

I have found that instant coffee is a great add in. Does not add fat or calories and gives it a really nice flavor. Since I had t give up my high fat/calorie iced coffee, this makes a wonderful substitute.

I also love adding in Vanilla Extract, which is very low in calories. I want to try peppermint extract as well, I love mint flavor.

Get creative and enjoy it. These really fill you up and satisfy much more than I expected. It's not hard to stick with, an that is they key. Add a Vi-Slim packet(mentioned below) and really bust that hunger for hours.

1 Bottle Vi-Slim Metab-Awake Tablets. (30 servings)

Boosting metabolism is so important for not only loosing weight, but especially for keeping it off. I have a horrible metabolism, and if these help, that is amazing.

I obviously have no way of actually knowing what my metabolism is like except for the results I am getting, and everything is great in that component, so I give these a huge thumbs up.

These are not even difficult to take(and I despise pills). You can take more than one a day if you want, but I want to make them last the full 90 days, so I only take one and that seems to be great. I imagine 2 would be really great.

1 Box Vi-Trim Clear Control Drink Mix(30 packets)
These little packets are miracle hunger crushers. Seriously one of these added to my breakfast shake keeps me full until my lunch shake or even makes me fine with just a small snack fo fruit or veggies(and not even need my second shake).

It is so powerful, but it does not make you feel like you have taken anything to stop hunger, you just don't get hungry it's incredible.

When mixed in the Vi-Shape, you cannot even taste them(I have not tried them with other beverages)

10 packets of Shape-Up Health Flavor Mix-Ins(10 servings)

These are so awesome. Perfect for those just beginning before they come up with their own add-ins.

They come in 5 awesome flavors: Strawberry, Banana, Orange, Peach and Chocolate. The best thing is you can mix them together to make awesome combinations(chocolate-banana anyone?)

They all taste great. I think the peach may be my favorite but I love them all.

1 Bottle of Omega Vitals(30 servings)
These are great. I have wanted to try Omegas, but the horrible taste and smell put me off from other kinds. These are not like that at all, and are easy to take, even for me. I think they are helping with my focus too, which is a huge plus.

2 Boxes(15 packets each) ViSalus NEURO Smart Energy Drink Mix(30 servings)
These are so yummy. Perfect for on the go since you can just add them to any bottle(or glass) of water. I like the raspberry best, but they are both great(and really good mixed together).

The really cool thing about these is they can also be mixed into your Vi-Shape Shake to add favlor and energy to any Shake Meal.

A great way to give you the boost you need to get going in the morning.

While these products are all you really need to have, the other ones are really great and I am so glad that I got to try them out as well.

My favorite of these extras, or course, is the Nutra-Cookie

As you can see, they come in 3 fantastic flavors. Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Raisin.
All 3 varieties are DELICIOUS!

I was shocked my how yummy these are, and even more blown away by that fact that for a meal you can eat 2 of these(most other plans only give you one[not very tasty] cookie as a meal replacement). You can also have one cookie with Vi-Shape shake mixed with water(instead of milk) as a meal, or one cookie as a snack between meals.

These cookies are just as good as any junk food cookie, but more filling and so much better for you.
It's a great way to get your "junk food" so you don't feel deprived, but also without cheating on your diet. These only have 150 calories and 5g of fat each. A not so guilty pleasure if I ever tasted one.

I also got the ViSalus GO Instant Energy
These come in a box of 15 energy shots. What is really awesome(an unique) about these energy shots is that you can drink them as a shot, or you can mix them with water to create a flavored energy drink.

These are Grape flavor and while I am not a big fan of grape flavored things, in comparison to other grape, this is great.

I like to just drink them plain so it get's into me faster, but my hubby tried a couple in his water for at work and he loves it that way.

And last but certainly not least, Vi-Pak Supplements

Now I am not going to lie and say I love taking vitamins and supplements, because in fact it is quite the opposite. I usually refuse t take anything I don't "need"(like cold medicine).

With that being said, I expected to not even keep taking these, however, they are not nearly as bad as I thought they would be.

I love love love the single serve(morning/night) packets. Each one has all the pills you need for either Am or Pm, and you take one of each per day. It is so simple having everything in one place, and knowing exactly what to take and when to take it.

I know what you are thinking, "All this is great, but it means nothing unless it is effective for weight loss". Well you are right and that is why I am so very pleased to tell you...


I started one week ago today, doing the ViSalus shakes(2 per day in place of breakfast and lunch) and began eating small, healthy(fruit, veggies, fat free cottage cheese) snacks, maybe once or twice daily as well as a healthy Low Fat, Low Calorie Dinner.

I kept my Calories under 1000 per day when possible, but the average was under 1200 per day.

And now for the results *drum-roll please*

After only one week I lost 7.8 pounds!!!!!

These results are so much more than I imagined. I am so happy. Seeing that this is really working is keeping me on track and making me more determined than I ever have been. I am going to do it, and it is all because of ViSalus!

I cannot recommend this any more strongly. If you want to lose weight, feel full and satisfied and just feel healthy and energetic, you HAVE to give ViSalus a shot. 

I was one of those people that always said, "Nothing works for me". But until you try everything(or find something that works and stop), you can't say that honestly. So try ViSalus and see that there is something that will work for you, just like it is for me.

Be sure to check out ViSalus on Facebook to see other stories and to be in the loop on everything.

Also check out the Challenge Timeline. I just found this and I am loving it.

And just because ViSalus is so incredible,  They are allowing me to offer you all this unbelievable giveaway.

One of you super lucky fans will win a Transformation Kit!!!

  3. It would be amazing because I am trying to loose weight but it is so hard to eat healthy with my picky family so i have to make like 2 seperate meals one for me and one for family.. with this I wouldn't have to! thank you!

  4. Being a full time college student, I find it hard to diet. by time I get home from school I just snack while doing homework, and snack more before bed. 75lbs later I'm now trying to find something to fill me, and something health.

  5. Awsome! I just tried them to and they are like a cake drink!

  6. It would help boost my resolution of finally dropping 30 lbs.

  9. i love visalus it tastes so good!

  10. It would change my life by helping me get started on a new healthy lifestyle!!

  11. It would help me get the nutrients I need.

  12. I am a gastric bypass patient almost 4 yrs out. I lost 130 pounds. I regained 48 between stress eating and hospital food (sad when fried foods are cheaper then healthy ones in a hospital)so I need a restart and this might be that for me!

  13. I hope to run a half marathon in 2014, and this could help me lower my weight and increase my health to reach that goal!

  14. i would love for this kit to help jumpstart my weightloss. I have to admit I have a hard time sticking to plans when I don't see results soon enough and I would hope with a program like this I would at least start to see the numbers going down on the scale so I'd continue to be motivated to move towards a healthier lifestyle.

  15. It would change my life with eating healthy!

  16. I sooo need to lose weight!! BADDD!!

  17. I am 120lbs over weight and have never been this big in my life. It's depressing and I won't even take family pictures or be seen in pics with my 2 year old daughter because of it. It scares me that she won't have any pics of us together one day so I'm on a mission to become healthier and get down to a healthy weight ASAP.

  18. freebielvr from fst..i would love to win this package. thanks

  22. I just started with Body by Vi, and only have half a bag that a friend gave me to try. This would help me out so I don't have to buy any for a while!

  23. This would allow me to have more energy to do things with my kids!

  24. This would definitely give me that "boost" that I need right now to set my own personal goals in the area of health!

  25. I would feel so much healthier if I could lose a few pounds!

  26. I would feel better and healthier if i lost a couple pounds.

  27. It would help me lose the extra couple pounds I have left post-baby!

  28. It would change my life by helping me to become healthier. I need to have back surgery this year, but need to lose about 30lbs to become eligble for it. I made a little progress on my own, but need something else to help me more. Once I lose weight and get the surgery, I'll be able to work again.

  29. I think that if I did this challenge, I would have more energy and lose some weight

  70. I’ve lost 5 kilos in my first week. I followed the diet with some protein as suggested. It is really like magic! It works. I’m not perfectly following the listed diet plan mostly), but the weight looses even on very little exercise. Give a try on this, this diet plan clearly works.

  71. Good website! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes it is. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which may do the trick? Have a great day!
