What Do I Eat With The Body By Vi Plan?


What Do I Eat With The Body By Vi Plan?

That is a great question! One of the ways that I have been able to lose the weight was to change the way that I eat. I NEVER used to eat breakfast, which is a BIG mistake, especially if you are trying to lose a significant amount of weight.

With the help of my nutritionist and personal trainer, Taryn Tarver, I was able to lose the weight safely and quickly, by incorporating the Body By Vi Shakes into a sensible eating plan.

Body By Vi Shake For Breakfast

I typically start my day with a shake for breakfast, which is quick and simple.

Since the purpose of breakfast is to “break the fast” you’ve been on while sleeping, having a shake as soon as you wake up is a great way to jump start your metabolism for the day.

At Taryn’s recommendation, I eat 5-6 times a day, with two of the meals being the Body By Vi Shakes.

I typically eat every three hours – and I know for people on the run, this sounds like a lot of work. With a busy career, the preparation time to incorporate a couple of snacks takes an additional 5 minutes.

Another thing that I do is to take full advantage of as many Body by Vi Recipes as I can. The shakes can be used as a mid afternoon snack, and using the wide variety of Body by Vi Recipes is helpful in keeping things interesting, which kept me very motivated.

My typical day looks like this:

6 am -  Body By Vi Shake

9 am -    Snack

12 pm – Lunch

3  pm – Snack

6 pm  – Dinner

1 hour before bed or within 30 minutes of working out – Body By Vi Shake

The list below is just a small portion of snacks that you can purchase on your off time – and they are easy to throw in your bag, briefcase or purse.

Try to carry these snacks with you everywhere you go, they will help you to stay ON track – and avoid temptation.

  1. I have a question, I’m on the 90 day visalus diet and have lost 13 pounds in 14 days so far. I would like to know the best time of day to walk on my treadmill for 30 min.

    • Hi Heather, great question! It really depends on you, what your work schedule is like, etc. I actually like to work out in the evenings during the week, great stress reliever and it gives me a sense of accomplishment – “finishing my day strong”. I do mix it up on the weekends though. I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with hiking, and so I try to hike a minimum of every other weekend if not more. I like that it is outdoors, you set your own pace, the goal is to finish the course. As you get more fit, you can challenge yourself to improve your time. PLUS, the longer you hike – you burn SO many calories, it’s awesome. You an google “hiking clubs(your city) and you should be able to find some great groups that schedule regular hikes in your area. :-)

  3. I tried Body By Vi and I did not lose a pound. I was only making one shake a day and that was for breakfast. what was i doing wrong because it was’nt cutting my appetite at all… Please give me some advice on how to mix this and how much should i mix.

    • Hi Cassandra – In order to lose weight you will need to drink two shakes a day –

      The shakes are meal replacement shakes, and should be incorporated in a daily routine of 5 small meals a day. Two Shakes, Two Snacks and a regular meal under 350 calories. Make sure you are drinking your water, you can add crystal light, or lemon and lime sweetened with Nu-Stevia for a great Limeade drink. Hot green tea after meals is also VERY effective.
