This weight loss challenge provides a reduced calorie diet by incorporating two meal replacement shakes a day containing 200-250 calories, one sensible meal for dinner and 2-3 snacks.  A fat-burner supplement and an omega-3 fish oil supplement are both incorporated as part of the challenge along with an appetite-control drink mix, energy drink and cookie snacks to use as needed.  The price for 30 days worth of the recommended kit of products is $249.00 and $747.00 for 90 days of products (cookie snacks not included -- see below for detailed list).  An online program with menus, recipes, exercise videos, a progress tracker and virtual community is included with the purchase of the kit. Multi-level marketing is used to incentivize participants to earn their monthly kit for free by hosting a party or signing up three new friends per month. Participants are also entered into drawings to win free prizes.

Upon review of the fat burner supplement and hunger control drink mix, it appears that the recommended amounts likely have no benefits based on current research on the active ingredients. The multivitamin and mineral complex is lacking in key nutrients that are deficient in the typical American diet (for example, vitamin D) and excessive for others (such as selenium). The meal replacement shake contains a blend of milk protein (12 g of soy and whey), carbohydrates (7g), and fat (1g), fiber (5g) from a patented fiber blend (digestive-resistant maltodextrin) and the sweetener sucralose.

In short, it is very likely that you would lose weight with the Body by Vi program, but you also risk losing your hard-earned dollars while increasing your chances of nutrient deficiencies (which are naturally occurring during the weight loss process). Analysis of the Body by Vi supplements and nutrition products shows that they are lacking in essential nutrients, padded with excessive amounts of other nutrients, AND they are overpriced. We can get you on a similar program, with high-quality supplements and meal replacements, for literally half the cost. And we’ll never ask you to hold parties where you encourage your friends to buy things so you can make money off them.

Do Weight Loss Challenges Work?

Weight loss challenges have become extremely popular over the last several decades. Because participants can achieve dramatic weight loss results in a relatively short period, 30, 60, and 90-day weight loss challenges can be very appealing.

Anyone who participates in a weight loss challenge that reduces calories and increases movement will likely lose weight. The difficulty with many weight loss challenges, including Body by Vi, is they recommend ineffective dietary supplements as part of the program. The multi-level marketing system that is part of the Body by Vi program adds an extra layer of complexity for many of the participants.

How Does Body by Vi Work?

Body by Vi is a 90-day Weight Loss Challenge. Participants incorporate two meal replacement shakes containing 200-250 calories, one sensible meal for dinner, and 2-3 snacks into their daily diet.

As part of the Body by Vi Challenge, participants are instructed to consume supplements that include a fat-burner, omega-3 fish oil, appetite control drink mixes, energy drinks, and pre-packaged cookie snacks as needed. The cost for the recommended kit of products is $249.00 for the 30-day supply and $747.00 for the 90-day supply of products. Cookie snacks are not included in the cost of the program at the time of this review. Participants have access to an online program with menus, recipes, exercise videos, a progress tracker, and a virtual community.

This particular challenge includes a multi-level marketing incentive for participants. Participants can receive financial incentives by hosting a party or signing up three new friends every month. Participants are also entered into drawings to win free prizes.

Nutritional Product Comparisons Between Body By Vi and dotFIT

The Body by Vi program recommends various supplements, snacks, energy drinks, fat burners, and shake mixes. Unfortunately, many products lack essential nutrients, are padded with excessive amounts of nutrients and are incredibly overpriced. As a result, you risk losing your hard-earned dollars while increasing your chances of nutrient deficiencies (which commonly occur during the weight loss process).

Below is 30 days' worth of dotFIT products that you can use as part of any weight loss challenge. The critical difference is that our products contain the correct amounts of proven, active ingredients, yielding more significant results for about half the price.
