I have been debating about whether to just do an "edit" to the post I did on Jessica last week or if I should do a new post because I have tried a sample of Body by Vi.
I suppose if I didn't like it I would have just done an edit and say that it was "ok". Since I'm posting a new post, I guess you could say I thought it was better than OK.
Let me tell you right now, when you open the package you get this wonderful smell - almost like a vanilla cake mix - that just draws you in. It has that somewhat sweet homey smell that just makes you want to try it. I'm sure you could just mix it up the way it is and be very happy, but I am always looking for "variety". I know I get bored with "diet" products easily unless I can keep changing it up. And once boredom sets in, the changes I was so set on putting into place goes right out the window.
That was one of the things that intrigued me about this product. You had a "base" that was pleasant that you can change up all the time with things you probably have in your home already or should. If you are going completely "cold turkey" on unhealthy options and using this as your jump start product you can add the variety I want (and I don't' think I'm that unusual) without having to rob a bank. This just made me feel like I was taking the first step towards a new lifestyle, a new "me" that will be ditching the excess weight and making me want to hit the gym to tone up too.
My first shake was a blender shake with 1/2 cup of frozen berries, 8 oz of 2% milk (should have been skim or soy or almond, but that was what we had so we went with it), 2 scoops of mix and some ice (about 5 ice-maker cubes). This filled an 18oz red solo cup!
If you remember I showed you a picture of some recipe options using the mix, where some used a blender and some were just mixing it up in a shaker cup. I bet the Tupperware Quick Shake(r) Container would work well with these.
I have one of these so I will be trying it very soon. I'm thinking a PB2 (powdered peanut butter with less calories and fat) and Cocoa ...... I mean chocolate and peanut butter just might be awesome! Or how about Cocoa and a little mint extract - can you say "York Peppermint Patty" in a glass? And then there was that Apple Pie in a Glass ...... These could be my go to when I'm running out the door in the morning to make a meeting. No donuts and coffee from the table for me!
Now I will admit that when I first had my shake, I thought it was VERY tasty, but I honestly thought I was going to be starving in an hour. WELL I was fooled completely. I had my shake around 9AM (I was dilly dallying and didn't really want to get moving), when I was finished drinking it I really thought I was going to be in deep trouble by 10. I thought I would be rummaging through the cabinets and refrigerator before 11. I was SO WRONG! I didn't even remotely feel hungry until after 1PM! Yes this shake lasted me about 4 hours - better than some "regular" breakfast foods. But I also noticed when I had lunch that I was full very quickly. Now I am not sure what or why that happened - but I'll take it! I will definitely checking out which package I am going to pick up for next month.
If you want to check this out, just let me know - and remember there is an option to get a challenge going or to get your monthly delivery for free - just ask and I will fill you in and get you set up.
