You know as well as I do that the best programs in weight loss out there have two different things that make the successful, maybe even 3, sometimes 4.  I want to cover each one of these in general, and then talk a little about the Visalus 90 day challenge, and why you should get involved if you are not.

The first key aspect to any weight loss program is a diet right?  Well I want to use the term diet lightly, because I don’t want to lead anybody down the path of the negative feelings we all get when we hear the word diet.  A lot of folks think about what they eat on a daily basis and imagine how hard it would be to give all that up.  Most of the successful diet plans still let you have some of that stuff, but the key is moderation.  The problem is we all have a hard time disciplining ourselves to get to that moderation.  For instance the 4 hour body gives you a cheat day once a week, which seems like the perfect day, the problem is sticking to a very tough diet the other 6 days is nearly impossible.  On top of that if any of you have a family like I do, a lot of these diets require me to prepare 2 meals.  One for me, and one for everyone else.  Now there is no way you are going to stick to that for the long term.

The second key aspect are usually supplements.  Now not all weight loss plans include supplements, some weight loss plans simply just make you eat better which replaces the supplements.  Some, though I don’t think they are good, are solely built around just supplements.  You can buy a ton of diet pills at the local Wal Greens or Wal-Mart that promise to shave the weight right off of you if you just take the magic pill.  Let me be the first to tell you I don’t believe in the magic pill, and I am not about to say that the Visalus 90 day challenge is that magic pill so you should keep reading.

The third possible key is a work out plan.  When I think of this I think of programs like p90x.  This is solely a video series of workouts that comes with a “meal plan” which again is targeted towards people who want to build lean muscle.  Now, I have nothing bad to say about things like p90x, they will work if you can stick to them.  The problem is the workouts are very tough if you aren’t currently in shape, and by the time you get good at them you will probably dread doing them.  That also brings me to my last point which is…

Accountability.  It is so hard when you are working out or losing weight by yourself to remain accountable.  Think about it, nobody knows if you slug down that big gulp and that bag of Doritos from the gas station when you are fueling up.  Nobody knows that you just didn’t work out for the last several days and that is why you haven’t lost weight.  Nobody knows that you aren’t drinking enough water so you maintain your gut.  Even going out telling people doesn’t always help because the problem becomes that you just either avoid those people, or feel guilty because you are secretly betraying them by having a milkshake.

So here is why I recommend the Visalus 90 Day Challenge as a pristine “diet” plan.  First off the meal plan is easy.  Remember back in like the late 80s when Tommy Lasorta used to promote Slim Fast?  Just two shakes a day for breakfast and lunch and a sensible meal for dinner and I look freaking great!  Well, we are bringing that back.  That’s our meal plan, but the Body By Vi Shakes are so much more nutritious compared to the old Slim Fast.  Plus, the shake tastes like cake so it is much easier to put down.  As a matter of fact there are a ton of body by vi recipes out there to help you have variety in your diet.  That shake covers both your diet and your supplements, when you pick a challenge kit you can pick the kit that most meets your needs whether you need to lose a ton of weight or just maintain.  The nice thing is the workout plan is optional.  I help my team all the time with workout plans, and there are plenty of very fit people on Visalus who will be willing to help you too.  I mean, after all the better you look the more we all make.

Lastly, there is this big accountability piece.  Let me tell you why the Visalus 90 Day Challenge is Different.  First of all, you enter it with friends.  The whole idea is to enter a 90 day challenge, then get 3 friends to enter with you so you get your Visalus challenge kit for free.  Secondly to keep you motivated they give away over 25 million dollars in prizes every single year to challenge winners.  Lastly, the better you look the easier it is to grow your business.  That’s right if you are a challenge promoter, and you go from looking like Rosanne to looking like Megan Fox or from John Candy to Johnny Depp then people are going to naturally ask what it is that you did.  Your response at that time is… I am so glad you asked, let me tell you about Body by Vi and the 90 day challenge.

So, in short, commit to 90 days to improve your life.  Get your challenge started right away, if you want help starting your challenge or want more information, call me at 417-894-4909 today or visit this website.


What is this Body By Vi I keep hearing about?

Body By Vi is taking the country by storm, and soon will be an international sensation.  Visalus Sciences has created an awesome program to help the entire country and soon the entire world lose weight.  So what exactly is Body By Vi?  It is a 90 day challenge.  The 90 day challenge is simply you setting a fitness goal or a weight loss goal that you will achieve in 90 days.  This could be anything from maintaining your current weight (if you are so fortunate) to losing 30 lbs, to losing some inches off your waist, whatever it is.  You commit to the 90 day challenge and then you pick a challenge kit.  More information about the challenge kits are available here at this website.

There is a kit for everyone.  There is the balance kit which is for those that want to maintain, to the transformation kit which is for those who are serious about changing their lives.  Now, the “shake thing” and the challenge isn’t all that you get with body by vi.  First off you get a huge support team, you share in your goals with your current friends, and even the new friends you make.  Body by vi is all about events.  If you want to really partake in weight loss, getting in shape, or just feeling better about yourself, then you can attend a Visalus event.

Once you start your challenge, you have two things you can do, and that you will want to do.  First you can have a three for free party.  Now a three for free party is really easy to do, and will lead to you getting your challenge kit for free.  If you join the challenge through they will even help you host your party, no matter where you live.  So here is the deal.  You get your friends together for a fun little casual gathering at your house.  You get some really good shake recipes, and make a few shakes.  I will be sharing soon the shake recipes we use at our parties so bookmark this BLOG.  You make 3 different types of shakes, and serve them to your friends.  Then you show them a short video.  If 3 people also sign up for a Challenge Kit with Visalus to lose weight or lose inches or get in shape or whatever, you get your Challenge Kit for Free.  Now who wouldn’t like to have a free challenge kit, that’s like someone buying you 2 meals a day every day for a month, just for having 3 friends commit to losing weight with you.

Studies show that you are 60% more likely to accomplish your goals if you sign up with friends.

The Opportunity of A Lifetime with Visalus

Now there is also another great thing about Visalus and the 90 day challenge.  After you get your 3 for free, and you start seeing results, you will be promoting this product all over the place.  I mean the results speak for themselves (these are just a few of the results):

Once this happens to you, you won’t be able to stop talking about it.  So why not get paid to talk about it?  The opportunity is simple.  Just like the three for free party, you invite people over to your house.  They sign up for the challenge, or they sign up to promote the challenge just like you are doing.  This business is super simple because of the viral nature of it.  Once people get results from the Body By Vi Challenge, they naturally promote it.  If you help 3 people get 3 for free and get 3 other people to promote the challenge, you get a free Black, Gray or special Green BMW paid for by Visalus.  You even get a paid for by Visalus license plate tag.

I can’t stress to you enough, the results of the challenge sell the product, you will naturally sell this product, no experience, sales skills, anything required.  Take a 90 day challenge and see for yourself.

If you would like more information, or if you would like to talk to me directly about the challenge, please visit, watch all of the videos and then fill out the form on the right.  I am telling you, today is the first day of the rest of your life, let’s make the rest of your life awesome together!

Pretty easy, tastes fantastic.  This is my favorite for breakfast:


8 oz Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/3 cup Pure unsweetened Orange Juice

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 cup ice

2 scoops Visalus Shake Mix


This is an awesome “treat”, can you believe that a treat that makes you lose weight.  Seriously this is so good that I can’t believe I am replacing a whole meal with it.  Try it out.

Here is what I have for lunch all the time when doing Visalus.

First off you need a blender bottle.  You can get them at GNC for like $10, GET THE BIG ONE:


Blender Bottle Colors


Next you get Fruit and Protein Silk, there are a few different flavors:


I have one of those water bottles with the Ice Pack inside it for work (get the 32 oz size).  Keeps the Silk cold until lunch so I don’t even need a refrigerator.  I bought mine for like $4 at Wal-Mart.  I did 2 things.


#1 – I took the ice pack thing out of the water bottle.  It looks like this:

Freeze this over night.  In the morning we are going to put 8 oz Fruit and protein Silk in the blender bottle, drop this ice pack thing (after you freeze it overnight) into your blender bottle.  Put the wire ball on top that comes with your blender bottle.  Take that wherever you are going where you won’t have access to a blender to make a shake, but still want flavor.  Don’t forget your two scoops of Visalus Sake Mix (put it in a small ziploc bag).


#2 – Don’t waste the water bottle.  Even though I only wanted the ice pack out of it, the water bottle comes in handy to make sure you are drinking your 64 Oz of water.  I totally stole this idea, but if you take the water bottle and mark it off like this:


Then you just check it and make sure you stay ahead of the time.  Anyway I will try to do a Youtube video and embed this as I get ready tomorrow so you can see all the steps.   Here is a quick recap:


1. Big Blender Bottle from GNC ($10)

2. Water bottle with built in icepack that is removable Wal-Mart ($5) marked as shown above by the hour (8 oz per hour) ice pack thing removed and frozen overnight.

3. 2 Scoops of Visalus Shake Mix

4. 8 oz Silk Fruit and Protein (Peach Mango is my favorite)



1.  Take wire thing out of blender bottle, add 8 oz Silk Fruit and Protein, drop in Ice Pack thing from freezer, and wire ball, put lid back on blender bottle ensure closed well.

2.  Fill water bottle marked off by the hour and make sure you stay ahead of the clock all day.

3.  When time comes to make shake, open blender bottle, remove ice pack, add Body By Vi shake mix, leave wire ball in, shake and consume.

4.  Loose weight and feel great!



Weighed in this morning at a hefty 157 pounds.  Well may not be considered obese, and it isn’t the most I have ever weighed, but needless to say it is not a weight I am happy with.  Time to do something about it right?  My fiance has been doing the Body By Vi Challenge now for a few months, and I have been off and on.  Last week, for instance, I was in the Philippines on business.  Didn’t get to take any shake mix with me so I figured I would add 15 lbs to my gut while I was over there.  I didn’t, but that is probably because I am scared of half the food.

At any rate this weekend I did the routine all weekend.  An awesome shake for breakfast, another and different shake for lunch.  For dinner didn’t really pay specific attention to what I was eating, just made sure to control the portions of it.  Was I fatter on Saturday than I am today?   Well, I don’t know if I had a 2 day transformation but let’s just say today is the official start.  I will try to take some before pictures to post somewhere, though that may deter people from even reading this damn thing.  I am off to KC on Saturday to a convention of Visalus users so I figure I better be a firm supporter of the product by then.

What I am planning to do:

1.  Shake for breakfast (which I will be sharing the shake recipes here).

2. Shake for Lunch

3. Morning workout

4. 64 oz of water per day

5. Have to take my thyroid pill for hypothyroid (which you may not have to do)

6. For dinner, just be cautious of what I am eating.  I know for a fact that I can’t just give up everything I have ever ate, that would last about one day.  I do, however know that my appetite on the shakes comes under control.  The shakes give plenty of nutrition so I feel good.

Honestly, and I attribute it mostly to the B12 in the shakes, I have more energy every day I have them.
