Put a pep in your step with a low calorie, low fat mocha milkshake with Vi-Shape®. It’s the perfect breakfast with a jolt of caffeine to wake up your senses and get you off on the right foot. Active/Fitness Challenge Champion Pat Ryan and his counterpart Lauren Purcell start each day with this blended boost.
“We’ve been drinking this kind of Vi-Shape Shake daily for four years and still love it,” says Pat. “Now, 225 lbs. lost combined over multiple Challenges and I can’t think of a better breakfast.”

Did you know? A cup of Joe in the morning might actually be good for you. More and more research suggests links between coffee and health benefits like heart health and more. According to the University of Scranton, coffee is the #1 source of antioxidants in the U.S. No other antioxidant source even comes close!

In a blender, combine all ingredients until well blended and smooth.
Not sure what should come next? Depending on his activity level, Pat typically drinks another shake post workout and snacks on Vi Bites (he loves Chocolate Monkey!), Nutra-Cookies, hard boiled eggs, almonds and fruit. Lunch and dinner consist of lean proteins, green vegetables and smart carbs like brown rice or sweet potato.
Exercise is just as paramount. Pat’s regimen includes cycling and lifting up to five days a week. He also participates in a virtual Challenge Group with 100-lb. Club members to reconnect leading up to Vitality.
