i have been on Visalus only for the product. I am not a salesperson. I have lost 40lbs so far and i haven't been completely serious. i still eat junk food and don't excersise. But, i believe, with Visalus i have not gained weight, i have lost weight. when i start to get rid of the junk food and excercise, i will lose more
please,please research soy.visalus did not break the soy down.it would take farmers years to do what is being claimed concerning soy also,a max of two teaspoons a day is somewhat safe yet the shakes are overloaded with it.soy has gotten much light shed on it.its not healthy.

Anyone can get the BMW, anyone. They want you to qualify ASAP so you can go show all your friends (if you have any left) how great this company is. Of course it's grown 700% or whatever the number is. The reason is because a few years ago there were 8000 reps, now there are 55000 reps. The only users of the product are the reps. More reps, more users, more sales (internal sales). If you can qualify for a BMW lease, go get it yourself and leave your friends and relatives alone. This as with all MLM's is a damn pyramid. Im all pyramids the buyers of the so called products are the reps themselves. I have seen many garages stuffed with unused products the reps bought to "qualify". It's a vicious and pathetic cycle.

Rick you are mistaken, over 1.2 million plus people joined the challenge using on of the challenge kits in the USA and Canada in 2012 and out of the 1.2 million only 120,000 are promoters, that is a significant ratio of customers to promoters...as for pyramid, when owning my own pyramid schemes over the years (corporations you sit at a desk at and build my families dreams while making what the job can pay you versus what you are truly worth as an individual) no one ever made as much money as I as the co founder..many of my friends own and operate many successful companies in the 1 to 150m a year revenue range with 10-700 employees and all of them who are executives at the top of the pyramid make the most money..your point is ignorant and mute..u need to read instead of emotionally spewing non sense

"]OMG my parents sold Amway back in the 70's and early 80's and almost lost everything because of it. I don't understand why people get involved in the pyramid schemes.
Most people believe that any opportunity presented to them outside of the opportunity to work for 40 hours, for 40 years and retire with a gold watch worth 40 dollars is some illegal pyramid scheme. How the general public is so deceived about money and how it's made for the 2% in our country and all over the world is amazing. I will tell you what a true pyramid is...a true pyramid is any business that generates revenue in large quantities never allowing the foot soldiers (employees) the opportunity to obtain ownership of his or her financial future. Trading hours for dollars, no hours, no pay. A multi-level marketing opportunity has never nor will it ever be a pyramid...we do something once and get paid over and over and over and you know this is not your job, but you are in a pyramid.

This product will be around? I'd love to start making wagers on that one. I wonder what the Vegas odds would be. I bet Amway had huge growth too you retard.
Amway is still around, my boss's sister is still selling it. Plus this is not Amway its a health challange. I dnt sell it, im just a customer. I am educated not obesse and a highly motivated individual. I love eating healthy and do for the most part. I eat a lot of fruits and veg. Drink almond milk instead of regular milk, eat no sweets or soda, and take a multivitamin. But when you stuck at work and have a thirty minute lunch away from home its hard to find fast food that is healthy, even grilled sanwiches are drenched in butter. I cannot stand the taste of leftovers so it is hard to plan healthy meals from home and I canot eat a salad everyday. Plus my greatest challenge is overeating. To me shakes make sense. They fill me up, they taste good, and for some reason I don't get tired of them. I have had a lot more energy lately too . I take them to Wrk and lunch is no longer an expensive unhealthy habit. Walks in the park are free, and my husband and I walk daily in the park. But you are an idiot if you forgot that you are still going to spend money on food. We replaced lunch with 99. We used to waste almost $400 in lunch between us. Think thats crazy? Check your bank account. It is a shame you all are so naive and hurtful. You obviously do not care for other people and getting healthy and challenges people face to get healthy.

well I truly hope people are not quitting their jobs.youre saying," just another poor soul" to this person,but you don't know them.you are clearly believing what they are teaching you.visalus founders are great hype men,they use catchy one liers,show you video if their trips and their homes,and you eat it up.wonderful,but the person you're talking down to,actually makes a valid point.also google Blythe lawsuit.they fudged numbers to make visalus appear to ave growth of +3000%, but the fact is,they stop their fiscal year ,retracting January 3rd,2012 to December 3 rd 2011.shareholders lost huge and it's in civil court,also,please research te soy,not what they say,please research it.a human body at most should have no more tha two teaspoons of soy a day,and really not even that because the health problems,over time,become life threatening.theres no way to remove the toxis from soy the way visalus claims to,not without chemicals or more toxins which in fact would destroy it to 2% of any type of value.also,this computer has terrible auto correct so forgive me for te off words.have a beautiful day.

The meal replacement shake contains soy protein isolate, sodium caseinates and sucralose. Soy protein isoloate or SPI has numerous side effects that include shortening the length of the telomeres in your chromosomes thus leading to premature aging and it also decreases the ability of your digestive system to absorb critical trace minerals. We already have the problems associated with soil depletion in the crops that make their way to the grocery stores, so now, why would we be putting further strain on our digestive system to absorb the minerals? Sodium caseinates cause numerous short term digestive discomfort and sucralose which is also known as splenda mimics MSG which is a known toxin used to preserve and flavor food. In fact, it is known to have so many side effects that it is starting to get a head of steam now with doctors helping people to lose weight. They are telling their clients to avoid it and telling them to use stevia or xylitol as a sweetener. Sucralose has one side effect that is even more troubling than I had thought in the first place. It excites brain cells associated with taste and causes them often to explode due to artificial stimulation.

The 90 day challenge through Visalus, represents a lifestyle change. It is based on a 90 day cycle. Some people reach their goal in 30 days. Some need to get through a few full 90 day challenges.
If you reach your goal, and go back to the way you were eating before the challenge, you will gain it back (shocker). The challenge teaches people to value their health, and make responsible food choices.
I am maintaining with one shake a day, replacing breakfast. This costs me less than if I actually had cereal, milk, toast, coffee, etc. And, I am keeping the weight off.

It is simply supposed to kick start healthy habits, it is intended to be easy and healthy.....once you get to where you want to be health wise & weight wise the hope is that you have built healthy habits so that you can slowly cut back on the shakes and eliminate them. Just like any product on the market it has some effects depending on how your body reacts to the ingredients in it. Do research and make the choice based on what you believe, not what everyone is telling you to believe!

Yes, selling it. Over 700 promoters earn a six figure income with Visalus. It is a business, not a pyramid scheme.

They have removed the isolates from the soy in the Vi shakes. As for the sucralose, less than a gram is found in a serving. It is safe for diabetics. We have many doctors recommending the 90 Challenge to their patients. Every 20 seconds someone joins the challenge and over 15 million pounds lost since the start of the challenge almost 3 years ago. The results of people losing their weight, becoming active and continuing to participate in the challenge to tacle their fitness goals tells the true story.

Yes, but the problem is it is still MLM. I do not care who you are, what you say. MLM compensation plans do not deliver the long term residuals promised. No ifs ands or buts. No excuses. Multi Level Marketing can also stand for Most Lose Money. There is only one real model that works in te long run and the ViSalus comp plan does not offer it. It's not an opinion. It's fact. Numbers don't lie, and Vi is too young to prove its strength.
Not sure you have checked your facts thoroughly. I have been in the industry for over 15years. I know of several millionaires who have been with the same company for over 15 years and are still working and sustaining their incomes. This is a solid business as long as it is treated as a business. As long as you are not looking for a get rich quick plan. Those don't exist. Direct Sales, network marketing absolutely works. And the big picture...it's legal!! Alexander, I dare you to disprove this fact. The only way that you can do it is by stepping into this industry and giving it an honest go. Lives are changed constantly for the better. All you need to do is do your due diligence to research the company. Making sure that you are aligned with the right one. And that is backed by great products. Give it a go, your life and attitude, just might improve.

every job no matter where you go is in the so called pyramid scheme. You have the employees on the bottom, then the supervisors, then the managers, then the executives, then the owner. To me it looks like a pyramid. Only difference is the corporate pyramid is the hardest to climb and the least productive when it comes to the pay check. I'm not in visalus but I understand how it works and the only reason pole don't like their system is because they don't know how to get it to work for them. They don't want to work for their money. They complain about their jobs and how they don't get paid enough but what do they do to change it?

A protein shake is nothing magical, no magical ingredients. Losing weight by drinking a shake is not rocket science, and it is wrong to claim that a shake (even ones sold at Walmart) is the "healthy" way to live....that is misleading to people, especially those who are desperate.

Does Body By Vi work? Sure it will; if you replace high calories meals with low calorie, protein rich nutritious ones, you will lose weight, have more productive workouts, etc. But this is not because of any miracle formulation; itís simple calorie restriction/reduction

I read through all the comments on here and see a lot about MLM's being Pyramid Schemes.
I have to shake my head at those who are so narrow minded and uneducated to think that their own "JOB" isn't a Pyramid Scheme!! Do you honestly think that if you are on the bottom rung of the company that you work for that if you tried to climb the ladder to the top CEO position that some how some way someone wouldn't find a way to get you fired or demoted just to save their job?
The difference between those who work MLM's and those who work "Jobs" is that those who work MLM's have a dream. They want to work their own hours and make their own type of money and build their own dreams and help others achieve the same. Those who work jobs usually have no dream left and no confidence in themselves to think they could own their own business. They have probably been told over and over again that they are not good enough or will never amount to anything. They are content to work for someone else building someone else's dreams!
America was initially built on Free Enterprise! Everyone out there has the equal opportunity to own their own business no matter what the product is.
Just because someone else's choice in making an income is different than yours does not mean that they are some how a bad person or the company they choose to work with is bad. I really urge those who are skeptical or negative about a MLM company please do your research. If this venue creating an income is uncomfortable to you or just not for you then great. But please do not poo on those who choose to make an income this way. Most who choose to work with an MLM company don't bash on your choice of profession, instead they say "Great I am glad you found something that works for you."
Hope you all are having a great day!!!

Hey same ol, you do realize that you get the BMW bonus in addition to your commissions and at the 2nd level in the company? We focus on people hitting their goals, and making sure people are advancing quickly. We have a 7 day training for people who want to go fast. For the people who want to do it, they do. As for the people who are not getting anywhere, that is their choice. I received my BMW bonus in 55 days(january 31st) and have requalified every single month since then.
