Mr WordPress on Hello world!
Shakeology – $90-$120/month
Body by Vi- $49.00-$250/month, depending on which program “level” you purchase. This also doesn’t include the cost of the snacks they want you to purchase.
Shakeology – 1shake/day
Body by Vi – 2 shakes/day plus their brand of snacks (again not included in the price)!
Shakeology-$2.99-3.99 per day
Body by Vi – $1.65 each shake. So when you account for the 2 shakes you have to drink each day, the cost is $3.30 per day. However, in actuality, it can be up to $8.30 per day if you buy their higher end package. I know I sound redundant, but remember snacks are not included in these costs!
Shakeology – Yes. In addition to being lower in sugar than Body by Vi, Shakeology is low on the glycemic index.
Body by Vi -Yes. However, no evidence of low glycemic index is mentioned.
Shakeology – Nope – None – Nada
Body by Vi – Yes-sucralose. Sucralose is a controversial substance and because of it’s molecular makeup may cause damage to your organs and reproductive system, among other things.
Shakeology – Greenberry, Chocolate and Tropical Strawberry. Tropical Strawberry is gluten free and contains no caffeine!!! Other flavors are on the horizon!
Body by Vi – Nope – They only offer sweet cream flavor.
Shakeology- Contains both pro/prebiotics not to mention 12% dietary fiber. By eating the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables you can reach your 100% daily fiber intake or if you have difficulty, you can add fiber to the shake. Learn more about probiotics and prebiotics here: http://faq.teambeachbody.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/999/~/what%27s-the-difference-between-prebiotics-and-probiotics%3F-which-does-shakeology
Body by Vi – Prebiotics are included and 100% dietary fiber included. Keep in mind that if you eat something with high fiber in addition to drinking Body by Vi, you may end up gassy with diarrhea and/or cramping.
Body by Vi – “High quality” “Tri-sorb” protein. This is a term created and invented by this company. Whey protein is whey protein point blank. When you start changing molecules, you can no longer call it a protein. This is a marketing gimmick.
Various fruit extracts (acerola, camu-camu, pomegranate, bilberry, blueberry, acai, Goji, Cordyceps, Rose Hips, Maitake, Reishi, Citrus bioflavonoids, Gingko), Whey protein, Chromium, Hydrilla, Apple pectin, Flax seed meal, Chia seed meal, Blue green algae, Spinach powder,oatgrass, wheatgrass, Barley grass, Grape seed extract, cinnamon, natural vanilla flavor, chocolate powder, cocoa powder, xanthum gum, ,guar gum, pea fiber.

In summary, I am a proponent of Shakeology simply because it is the better choice. Not only does Body by Vi not offer any type of exercise program associated with their drink but also no real meal plans. It’s simply buying the (more expensive and less healthy) drink and the snacks and be off with you! I know people who do drink Vi and have lost weight but they DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE to get into shape – no exercise, continue to eat junk food and are not disciplined. So, if they ever stop drinking Vi, they will be quickly back where they started.
Neither a drink nor a magic pill is going to help you achieve your goals. You must change your lifestyle – diet, exercise, and determination are the key. If you are sick of looking and feeling a certain way. Shakeology can help but it’s only a start. Find a workout you enjoy and it helps you stay motivated!!!

I just wondered what everyone out there does when they have been disappointed by someone or a situation. I have had this happen to me tonight and my first thought was to eat something. I refrained which is very unusual for me. That’s something that always lead me to go eat something unhealthy in the past. BUT now since I’ve set real goals for myself, I’m not going to worry about it. I will move forward and forget and forgive those who are against me even when they say they are with me.
As a positive, I have not drank any soda or eaten past 8 p.m. any this week!!! Pop/soda was always a must for me! I haven’t even had any headaches as a result of not drinking it. Since i work 2nd shift and staying up until after midnight, not eating past 8 p,m. is usually hard for me. Not anymore! AMAZING! Set goals!!!
