This challenge is blowing up!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or you’re not on the Facebook, you’ve probably heard of the BodyByVi 90 day challenge.

What is it? Why should I care?

Here are my top 5 reasons why I think the challenge is spreading like wildfire:

1) It’s easy! All you’re doing is having a yummy shake for a post workout snack or replacing a meal a day if you’re trying to lose weight. It’s healthy fast food for the busy folks!

2) It’s all about quality products. Some of the best products industry, all backed by science and they’re really tasty. And affordable! What more could you ask for?

3) It’s a viral phenomenon. The challenge is really spreading on the interweb, at water coolers and in living rooms everywhere. The refer 3, get it for free is doing rather well I guess. And something about free BMW’s doesn’t hurt either…

4) They’re on the cutting edge of technology. By first using social media and now creating their own mobile app, they use technology to get exposure for their products while teaching people to become as efficient as possible.

and finally 5) It’s fun! You’re helping people get healthier and maybe make some pocket change as well. I’ve met some really cool folks through BodyByVi. It’s nice to feel you’re making a difference while bettering yourself!

Here is an overview of what happened in the first quarter of 2011, straight from one of the founders of Visalus, Blake Mallen:

I was a bit skeptical at first since it’s still a fairly new business model for some and you don’t see the products on the shelf somewhere. But then you realize that the world is changing so rapidly, maybe the old ways were not the best ways. It’s not for everyone and it’s not easy (like anything worthwhile) but it’s quite simple!

    Ask any certified nutritionist (with a BSC degree in nutrition, Kin degree or that sort), they dont aprrove those type of diet. You will regain your weights as fast and this is not good for your body. As well, Health Canada discourage those type of diets. This is misleading for the consumer and create a false statement

      Amanda,
      I appreciate your point of view. I agree that if you don’t change your lifestyle as well, you’re likely to put the weight back on. The one thing I like about the challenge is that it promotes physical activity and proper nutrition as a key to a healthy weight, not just reducing calories to drop weight. And this wasn’t actually designed as a “diet” product but more of sports nutrition!
