Ocean Avenue vs Visalus BMW Rewards

Ocean Avenue vs Visalus BMW Rewards

Ocean Avenue vs Visalus and why people are leaving behind their BMWs

So,  you remember this company that suddenly last year everyone was talking about.. Visalus. I had not interest because I am against sucralose and soy protein and that is what they were promoting. A lot of my friends, and fellow Beachbody coaches however ran at the change of getting their own BMW – which happens to be the lure of the Body By Vi recruitment.

So how do you get this amazing BMW??

Let me just say upfront that you have to make it to the regional director level to actually get a chance for this lease. You, not Visalus, sign up and lease a 3 series BMW for up to $600 a month. {If you have good enough credit to get the lease with BMW in the first place} Now going forward every month you must hit that sales quota in order to get the allowance from Visalus for your payment, or you are stuck paying the payment. And you also have a catch… you have to advertise for them on YOUR vehicle.

What’s new with Visalus currently?

Securities Fraud Class Action Lawsuit Has Been Filed Against Blyth, Inc.-BTH. It makes me sad to see that Partylite is being hurt by all of this. This class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, on behalf of investors who purchased the securities of Blyth, Inc. (“Blyth” or the “Company”) (NYSE:BTH) between March 14, 2012 and November 6, 2012, inclusive (the “Class Period”). The action is brought against Blyth and certain of its officers and directors for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Taking your Body By Vi BMW to Ocean Avenue
The Complaint alleges that Defendants made false or misleading statements about sales and prospects of ViSalus, Inc., in which Blyth owns a controlling interest. As the true facts concerning ViSalus became known to the market, the Company’s stock price plummeted, losing more than $462 million in market capitalization. 

So, that’s why so many Visalus / Body By Vi reps are tearing the ads off their “BMW” vehicles, so to speak, and jumping to Ocean Avenue. Integrity, quality products and stability is something that they are really looking for. It’s truth in advertising, truth in ingredients {they are actually LISTED on the Ocean Avenue shakes website} and it’s something for the entire family. Well, I personally think it’s great to have them.

UPDATE: There is both a pending federal securities case against Blyth and a RICO case against Visalus.  Will watch for the outcomes.

It amazes me how people know about Soy Protein, yet still push false information. I heard from so and so , so it must be true. Check into up to date studies. Soy is a complete protein that does not affect hormones as once thought.
There is nothing innovative or new about Ocean Avenue. Not even the name. Product differentiation is key.

Crystal, all you have to do is google “dangers of soy protein” to get all of the information on it – http://bit.ly/X3EKci – I’ve written loads of articles as a holistic health coach about what soy will do to you, and that’s not talking about fermented soy, although even the leading cancer organizations are now having chemo patients stay away from even fermented soy. In fact some of the latest studies that you’ve recommended I search out state: ” On balance it does not seem that soy and its constituent isoflavones have met original expectations. Clinical results with regard to soy’s ability to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease have been inconsistent; a review in the 21 February 2006 issue of Circulation indicated there was little to no effect. The only apparent impact of soy and soy isoflavones on cardiovascular disease risks seems to be a slight reduction in low-density lipoproteins in individuals who had very high levels of cholesterol. ” I think that we can agree to disagree, but I personally would not use soy protein, and am very proud that neither of the shakes I recommend from Beachbody or Ocean Avenue have soy protein in them.

FYI: The isoflavones have been removed from the tri-sorb protein blend. The sucralose in the shakes is so minute, you have to have like 80k shakes in a day to be at the toxic level of sucralose… Research does wonders! ;)

AND you don’t have to lease the BMW if you don’t want to. You may buy.

After reading that law suit can we say something is wrong here?

Google the “benefits of soy protein” and get ALL the facts . . . not just the one-sided, skewed facts.

8 Barbara { 10.31.13 at 1:28 pm }

A study in 2001 showed that if in fact you’re going to use soy protein for the hypocholesterolemic benefits it’s attributed to the isoflavones. Therefore haven’t you removed the good in it?

9 Barbara { 10.31.13 at 1:31 pm }

I’ve been researching soy for 25 years. Fermented =Good. Unfermented =Bad. Pretty simple if you’re reading the information put out beyond the soy farming industry in the US.

Actually, their soy protien is from non-gmo soy, which has a big difference from the gmo soy in most products out there. Yes you are right about most soy and its effects as far as gmo products go. Now keep researching, and find out the differences between the gmo vs non-gmo ;) It’s not just fermented vs non-fermented.

11 Barbara { 01.11.14 at 3:10 pm }

I agree with that, because about 90% at least of the soy in our nation is gmo…We tried so hard to get the gmo labeling here in WA, people may never learn just how important it is.
