Which Nutritional Shake is Really Best?
There are several popular nutritional shakes out on the market. Occasionally, a company looking to gain attention will draw comparisons between their products and well-known brands with quality products. Sometimes companies will even draw comparisons not based on any real facts—such an example can be found in a blog post entitled, “Weight Loss Protein Shakes Challenge: Isagenix IsaLean Shakes vs. ViSalus Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake”.

- Body By Vi- Is It All Hype?
Let’s first look at the Nutrition Facts. My first concern would be the calories being so low. Two rounded scoops are only 90 calories? I know this is actually a selling point for many of the Visalus promoters. “It’s really low in calories!” Calories are so bad right? All calories make you fat! Not if you are getting the “the right calories”. My second concern would be it only contains 12 grams of protein for 2 scoops? That is in my opinion way too low for a meal replacement or nutrition shake. Having such a large serving size (2 scoops) and only getting 12 grams of protein that means this mix is 46% protein so what does that mean this mix contains “lots of fillers”. I am aware that they encourage you to add this shake to skim milk, almond milk, or soy milk for more calories and taste. Well if this shake mix is so special and is so great why do you need to add it to something else other than water to it to make it work? (not to mention something that might not be very healthy as well) To its credit the fiber content is good with 5 grams; however I am pretty sure the fiber is used to make you feel full. I have heard multiple times someone promoting the shake saying its only 90 calories and after having it “I’m not hungry for 4-5 hours or all day.” Again anything that curves someones appetite to a point where they are not eating for long periods.

- The Side Effects of Vi-Slim Diet Supplements
The major problem with Vi-Slim is the stimulant content. All but two of the ingredients are considered stimulants, so those who are caffeine-sensitive should steer clear. Even if you tolerate normal amounts of caffeine without any problems, the total stimulant dose in each dose of Vi-Slim is unknown.
