Weight Loss Protein Shakes:Comparing Herbalife Instant to Visalus

If you’ve found this post you’re likely digging around on the internet trying to find information on what diet is right for you.

I did that too! I did it for months. I spent endless hours combing the net to find out as much as I could about as many diets as I could because I knew I had to do something, anything to lose some weight.

Lucky for you I like to write about what I learned :)

Today I’m comparing Herbalife Instant with Visalus. As you can see, by the branding on this site, I am a fan of Visalus. For so many more reasons than how great the product is but we’ll start there.

Herbalife is set up similarly to Visalus and Isagenix. You take 1 shake/day to maintain your weight and 2 while you’re in weight loss mode.

TASTE:
Herbalife has a couple of different flavors, chocolate, vanilla and latte. The jury is out on taste. Some people love the taste. Others? Not so much.

Visalus Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake comes in Sweet Cream flavor. You can easily enjoy this as-is or change the taste by mixing in your favorite fruits (frozen fruits make it a smoothie!)

You can also get Health Flavor Mix Ins that add not only great flavors but great health benefits too.

I think that Visalus wins on TASTE!

Next up let’s look at PROTEIN:

Herbalife’s Formula 1 protein shake is a soy-based meal-replacement shake. The top ingredient in their shakes is Isolated soy protein. According to a report by the Center for Science in the Public Interest Isolated soy protein is simply protein purified from soybeans.

Textured vegetable protein is soy protein that has been combined with chemical additives and processed into granules, chunks, or strips that resemble meat. These proteins are used in some imitation meat products, which are generally healthful, but may contain flavor enhancers, thickening agents, emulsifiers, and artificial colorings.

Ummm, ew?

Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake includes a unique, concentrated and highly absorbable blend of proteins called Tri-sorb protein.

What makes this blend special is it has the highest quality whey available, whey hydrosolate. (there is a ton of info on Wikipedia about the benefits of Whey but it would fill this entire post to list them here. Suffice to say, it’s got some good stuff in there)

The protein has been processed to remove fat, lactose, carbohydrates and isoflavones to provide the purest possible concentrated protein. This is the fastest absorbed and utilized form of protein available.

Each serving has 12 g of whey/non-GMO soy protein.

I’m going to have to go ahead and award Visalus the crown on this one!

Ok moving on to the important stuff that affects your health, fat, cargs, sugars etc.

Herbalife:
Saturated fat: Yes
Sugar: 3gr
Calories: 200
Sodium: 420mg (wow!)
Cost per serving: $3

Visalus:
Saturated fat: Nope
Sugar: <1gr
Calories: 90
Sodium: 75mg
Cost per serving: $1.78

Are you gonna make me say it? Ok then, Visalus wins on the supplements and price too. Great job Visalus!

It's pretty easy to tell who the overall winner is. For taste, price, protein and customization Visalus takes the prize.

Additionally people tend to do really well with Visalus due to the massive amount of support from peers and mentors that has been built into the company philosophy. The founders realized that everyone does better when they don't have to go it alone.
