Body by Vi vs. Weight Watchers

A review of two diet plans that are available to consumers. One popular diet plan is Weight Watchers. This article will address the 5 reasons why Visalus Siences Body By Vi is superior to Weight Watchers.

Before we continue you should know that the vi-shake is backed with medical and scientific research. And all the Body By Vi Recipes taste great.

1. Choosing foods based on low points instead of nutritional value.

Weight Watchers has implemented a point system for it’s members. Each food is assigned points based on the calories, carbs, fat and fiber present in the food. A person is assigned the allowed number of points for their body weight. The company has attempted to make it easy for people to lose weight. Unfortunately what they have done is to create a group of people who choose foods not on nutritional value but on points.

When nutrition is simplified, as in the points system, foods lose their purpose for the body and are not compared based on their benefit for the body. A hearty multi-grain bread is passed up for a white bread because it allows for more points that day is just one example of this faulty logic.

The Visalus Sciences Body By Vi shakes have been created by leading scientists and doctors in the medical community such as Dr. Michael D. Seidman, M.D. who understand the importance of nutrient dense foods. Body By Vi products steps in where Weight Watchers falls short.

Losing weight is about more than low calories or “points” it is about making sure those calories are coming from high nutrition which is crucial for biological processes.

2. Sodium

Sodium is necessary for many biological processes but in excess, it can wreak havoc on the body producing high blood pressure, stroke and many other serious consequences. Losing weight is also affected by sodium. High amounts of sodium cause the body to retain water which can give a person that bloated look.

Weight Watchers has attempted to make healthy eating simple for our fast paced society with the introduction of frozen foods. Weight Watchers even calculates the point value in each meal making it easy for those on the point plan to eat healthy…. or so people think. These meals are actually salt shakers in a box. Frozen meals are notorious for high sodium content and Weight Watchers frozen meals are no different.

These are just a few meals with their sodium content.

*chicken enchiladas 640 mg *pasta with ricotta and spinach 630 mg *Salisbury steak 900mg

Let’s say that Jon is on Weight Watchers and he is committed to losing weight. He brings pasta with ricotta and spinach to lunch at work and for dinner has the Salisbury steak. Well in just those two meals, Jon has consumed over 1,500 mg of sodium.

The guidelines for sodium intake are around 2,300 mg daily, but drop to 1,500 mg per day if you are over 51, have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney issues.

If Jon in our example is over 51, he is in trouble with his current eating plan. He thinks he’s being healthy based on points when he is in fact headed for trouble.

The Body By Vi Products are just as convenient with only 75mg of sodium. So Jon has taken 1,500 mg of sodium in only 2 meals with Weight Watchers and when he switches to the Body By Vi Shakes and makes a creamy blend with milk, fruit and ice he is only taking in 410 mg of sodium.

3. Binge on Nutrient deficient foods

When focusing on points of a food it does not teach proper nutrition. A person who has an allotment of 20 points for the day could eat 20 points worth of brownies.

Now I would hope that no one would do this but I have seen countless people on Weight Watchers who do not eat their entire meal or skip lunch to “save up” for that death by chocolate cake later on in the day.

Body By Vi takes this point calculation and turns it into sensible eating with nutrient rich shakes. There is no saving up points. When you skip meals or eat less calories at one meal to binge on the next your metabolism slows down. Our bodies are built for survival.

When you are feeding your body sufficient nutrients frequently, it processes them and gets rid of them because it knows it has more coming soon. When you eat less frequently it tends to hold on to these calories as it goes into survival mode. The body does not know when it will get more nutrients so it stores them as fat to use as fuel in case calories are not available later on. This goes back to the survival mode of the body and is detrimental to weight loss.

With the Body By Vi Shakes you are able to consume high quality nutrition which is required for the body and this prevents the body from going into survival mode. Like an oil change for your car, Body By Vi products help your body to run in tip top shape.

4. Financial Obligation

Weight Watchers and Body By Vi both understand the importance of support and encourage those looking to lose weight to have others join them in their journey.

Let’s say that Sandy joins Weight Watchers and attends a meeting. She learns the power of support and in the next week has her mother, sister and best friend join the weight loss program with her. Well this is great for Weight Watchers who receive more clients but what does Sandy get from the company? That’s right nothing.

Sandy decides to join Body By Vi instead and learns about the power of support from others in achieving her weight loss goals. Her mother, sister and best friend also join Body By Vi with her.

What does Body By Vi give Sandy? Her weight loss kit and shake for free each and every month! As a thank you from the company she is now losing weight for FREE.

5. Who is behind Body By Vi?

So who is behind the Body By Vi products anyway?

Dr. Michael D. Seidman and Steven A. Witherley are two of the main people behind these amazing products.

Dr. Michael D. Seidman M.D. attained a degree in human nutrition as well as his M.D. He is an active scientist as well as consultant for many professional athletes and is an adviser for the NHL,NFL,MLM, and NBA.

Steven A. Witherley, Ph.D is a leading expert in the field of food science, nutrition and product formulation with a Ph.D in human nutrition, M.S in food science and B.s. in nutrition and dietetics. He is a published author and speaker on the science of food.

It is great knowing that a product I recommend to others is backed by science and medicine.

I’m sure you can see the power in Body By Vi. But for those of you who would like to continue counting points the Body By Vi Shake has only 2 points!

Peter and I started the Body By Vi, 90 Day Challenge, 87 days ago, the Tuesday after Canadian Thanksgiving, and we honestly haven’t looked back since. I would love to be able to say that we haven’t “swayed” from the challenge from time to time, but well I would be lying, seeing as we just came through the Christmas season!! But having the shakes around during the holidays definitely made some decisions easier that’s for sure!!

Actually, that’s the thing I love the most about the challenge (other than the results), is the simplicity of it. Peter and I are crazy busy parents of 4 girls at home, one away from home, the girls are all soccer players, etc, we are on the move all the time, and the challenge has allowed us to STOP the INSANITY of the Drive Thru windows!!! We just make a shake and away we go 🙂 So simple, tasty and FREE!!!

Since the start of the challenge, I have lost a total of 25.4 pounds and 15 inches, and Peter has lost 16.6 pounds and 16 inches, for a combined total of 42 pounds and 31 inches!!! WHAT A FEELING!!!! I have lost 2 and a half – 10 pound bags of potatoes, do you have ANY idea how good I feel??? How much energy I have??? It’s ridiculous really, just from changing a couple of habits and I feel amazing!! I LOVE THIS CHALLENGE!!! I’m actually excited to get started on my next one 😉 This has been a total lifestyle change for us, it’s not a diet, it’s a way of life. I simply can not feed myself the same amount of nutrients in the course of a day as I can by drinking my shakes!! I can’t wait until next week at the end of this first challenge to post our BEFORE and AFTER photos!!!

I have a question for you all …

This year is going to be so different for the Moore Family, than any other year, this is the year we are going to get HEALTHY together as a family, we are going to start LIVING life instead of watching it pass us by and we are going to experience prosperity for the first time ever!! We have big dreams for 2012, and there is only ONE way to get there – work hard, run hard, and play hard together as a family. Today, the Moore’s will let NO ONE stand in the way of their dreams of the future. Our lives started changing 83 days, when Peter and I started our first 90-day challenge with Body by Vi. We have lost weight, inches, gained energy, confidence and the beginning of a total lifestyle change. 2012 is going to be lived out in 90-day increments to meet each one of our goals for our family!! We are going to live stronger and laugh louder together as a family!! We are going to work together, play together, dance together and love together. We will succeed in our goals because we know today that WE CAN DO IT!!! Nothing is going to stand in our way, because as a family united with a common goal we will be an unstoppable force. This is the year of taking control of our lives and destiny. Negativity is no longer a welcome part of our world, we will run from it, learn from it and throw it away. We will stand together as the clock strikes 12:00am, January 1, 2013 and together say I TOLD YOU SO!!! This is OUR year!!!
