Day 4

So today was day 4 of the Visalus samples.
Today I mixed it just like yesterday. Juice, water, vi-trim and shake powder. Today I liked it as much as yesterday. Today I REALLY wished they made it with real sugar, just like yesterday. Today I know, I will not order it for me, just like yesterday….
I will catch up with an old friend if mine IFBB pro Jeni Briscoe, next week. We will chat, and I will learn more about the product. I went to Jeni, because she has been selling and using Visalus for over 2 years. Swears by it, loves it, recommends it, Uses it. I trust Jeni. She has told me there is a possibility they will be changing the auger substitute. I sure hope they do!

Day 3

Mixed the shake this morning with my kids fruit and veggie juice. 1/2 cup juice to 1/2 water. It was great! I’m really liking the shakes for the nutrition side. I also tried one of the vi-trim packets mixed in. My hunger was curbed almost all day! I tried one of the cookies that day too….which really makes me think…why can’t they either use real sugar in the shakes like the cookies, or no sugar/sweetener at all???
I have 1 more day of samples. I would love to say I will order it, but I know I won’t! I will post another day as to why I can’t stand sucralose!!! But for tonight, that is it. VISALUS…USE REAL SUGAR OR NO SUGAR PLEASE!!!

Day 2

On to day 2 of the Visalus Shakes…..

I mixed my shake this morning again with water, milk, a 1/2 a banana and added the Strawberry Phyto flavor mix.  Gotta say, it tasted pretty good.  I could still taste the sucralose, but I think I always will.

I didn’t get the headache, was thirsty all day, didn’t get any stomach issues, also didn’t feel hungry all day.  I ate, because I had to, but really didn’t want to.  I was quite surprised!  I see how so much weight can be lost on this system!  Maybe I just need to force myself to eat more!

I have been questioned…

so I’ve decided to take on a challenge…yes the Visalus challenge. However, I am not doing it as a transformation, or a weightloss. I am doing it to see what it is like. I am only doing it for 5 days. And I am only doing the shakes.

If anyone knows me, they know I really don’t like fake sugar.  I don’t like what it does to me, I don’t like how it tastes, and I don’t like what it does to your body.  BUT…many many people I know are on it and LOVE it.  and since MANY of my clients ask about it, I decided to grab a few samples and give it a try….

Day 1!

8:30am I mixed up the shake with 1/2 a banana and a squirt of nestle quik.  I know, kinda defeats the purpose, but I had to add some chocolate, and I didn’t want to add the chocolate flavor pack that has more sucralose in it.  I mixed it with 1/2 cup of 2% milk and 1/2 cup of water.

The first sip, i could taste the sucralose, but still decided to give it a go.  Within 10 minutes I had a headache.  I stopped at Tim’s to get the kids their bagel and juice and had some of their bagel to get rid of the headache….it worked.  I found I was getting munchy feeling still about 10:15, so I had some of my fresh pineapple salsa I made.  Then I got really really thirsty!  I was craving water the rest of the day.

So after day 1, all was ok.  I had no more side effects and decided to give it another shot!  On to day 2!
