No

Not everyone gets paid to use, actually a small percentage of people do. Most use it without a paycheck, BUT lots do get it for FREE by having three other people join the challenge with them. Thanks for the discussion but back to work now.

hmmm..

traveller - they aren't any different really than any other meal replacement except that they are marketted for weight loss and cost you 3 times as much LOL  
 
Bananarama1983 - your reasons aren't any different than anyone else wanting to lose weight fast and easy except that you are planning surgery. My question is - if you are unable to lose the weight through proper eating and exercise before surgery and are relying on these sjakes to replace a balnaced healthy diet, how are you going to be able to maintain the restricted diet neccessary after surgery for the rest of your life. Whenever I have a client considering GB surgery I challenge them to live on the post-surgery diet for 3 months before deciding - amazingly if they do it, they start to lose weight that they thought only surgery would do for them.  
 
ANY sustainable healthy weight loss program is about balancing diet and exercise in healthy proportions. There is no magic quick fix - no pill or shake that will do it for you.  
 
JC - As a medical professional I am sure that you are educated enough to realize that anytime you substitute real 'food' with any type of supplement that you are changing your metabolism because our body's are NOT designed to erive nutrition from anything but raw food sources. I am sure you know that through your anatomy, metobolic and physiology studies. So to use your 'medical' credentials as a point to promote something like this is in my opinion incredibly irresponsible. You say you aren't getting a paycheck but get your shakes for free - perhaps you have studied the science of hair-splitting as well?  
 
And yes JC is 100% correct, Body by Vi is NO different than all the other quick and easy weight loss solutions like Herbal Magic etc... they are all the same. Anytime you see 'quick, easy, fast' in an ad for weight loss, it can't possibly be healthy or sustainable - our bodies are not designed that way.  
 
like the man with the orange says - save your money!

I wasn't meaning that Herbal Magic or U weight was better. They are all the same quick fix. I was referring to the actual marketing of said products. Everyone is going to claim the BBV (that uses it) is great because they have something to gain by you using that product.  
 
Back to my orange (that I actually peeled instead of shook out of a bag)

Body by Vi

Because this same thread seems to come up every few weeks and ultimately turns into more or less the same discussion I'm going to close this particular one... but please check out some of the past ones for a wide variety of opinions and information exchanges on this topic:
