I’ve been a little slack in getting this body by vi shake update out. Meant to have it on Monday….oh well. Just two weeks to go (as of Monday) on my first 90 day challenge. Yep. My first. I’m going to be a little short of my goal for body fat, so figured I’d grab another 90 days…but, we’ll see how the next two weeks go.
I called this one “body by vi full disclosure” for my friend DS. She pointed out that my blog made it sound like I’ve only been taking body by vi shakes.
I figured it was self evident…especially making fun of my formerly inaccurate view of elliptical machines! Ha!
However, she probably has a valid point. On a couple fronts actually. So, here goes:
1) Yes, I’m hitting the gym. To me, the results I’ve achieved are fantastic for the limited time I’m at the gym. 45 minutes of weights, 3 times per week. Strictly timed–don’t really want to be a “gym rat.” 20 minutes of cardio, 3 times per week. To me, this is a ridiculously small amount of time. Especially when I see people in there for literally hours. How do I know? They brag about it. Its usually in the middle of a conversation where some guy is flexing for no reason, “Yep….ahhhh….kick ass workout today man….pumped iron for 2 hours….”….Moron. Dude….you’re doing something wrong if you’re in the gym for Hours a day and you’re not a fitness model sponsored by some supplement company or pimpin’some new energy drink.
2) Yes, you COULD achieve the same results on your own, no visalus shakes. The easy way would be another meal replacement shake. There are good ones out there, even a couple great ones. But, this brand fell in my lap, I like it, and I’ll probably promote it as a distributor and make a couple bucks. Why the hell not?
3) Yes, you COULD achieve the same results on your own with food you already buy. Okay, this one is hysterical to try. The fastest way to lose fat and gain muscle is 5-6 small meals a day. Depending on what you read, they should be balanced equal protein, equal carbs, zero sat fat. Or 30/30/20…and….if you’re trying to lose weight…200-300 calories each. If you are trying to pack on size….maybe 400-600 calories each time. Ever tried prepping 5-6 meals a day? I don’t care who you are–damn near impossible. For the record though, there is a guy on Youtube that goes by Scooby. He’s a monster…claims to be all natural. Not sure how he finds the time, but kudos to him! Oh yah…don’t forget to pound the multivitamins as eating tiny meals like this is a nightmare to try to ensure you get all the proper vitamins, minerals and macronutrients when its coming in waves of 5-6 meals!
If you find other bodybyvi blogs, and even visit the main site, the real point of the 90 day challenge is to ultimately, change your “lifestyle.” Something healthier. Leading to happier. Leading to more fulfilling and satisfying. Yep, you’ll lose weight. Yep, you’ll tone up. But those are only the icing and sprinkles on the cake.
Well DS–did this one meet your FDA guidelines? (FDA = Fred’s Darla Approval) hahahaha….by the way, the body by vi shake ingredients list is coming–been too damn busy to find an easy one to read online.
