No Use For Amway Nutrilite Vitamins

One day Ambot opens his expensive box of shit from Amway and pulls out a bunch of Nutrilite vitamins that his upline has brainwashed him into believing he had to have.

One of the useless vitamins he pulled forth was called Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables.

What the fuck do we need this for? I asked him.

This is to make sure we get our 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables each day he says.

Are you shitting me? I ask.

I mean what is wrong with this picture? Taking 2 vitamins a day because some asshole from the Amway cult stage says you can take them instead of eating healthy fresh fruit and vegetables. What kind of a fucking moron believes that bullshit? Answer - a brainwashed IBO.

Since when do we have trouble getting our 5 to 10 a day? OK, maybe when we have to attend an Amway function getting in healthy meals might be challenging.

I was brought up to eat an orange or half a grapefruit with my breakfast every day so that is probably the only meal of the day where I might only have one serving of fruit. Sometimes 2 servings if you count juice. I’m not real big on drinking juice and calling it the same thing as a serving of fruit. I guess its the same way I feel about eating a vitamin and calling it the same thing as eating a fruit. I usually have juice in the house but I don’t necessarily drink it at breakfast time. I’m more likely to make a strawberry or banana smoothie to drink at breakfast or mid-morning than drink juice.

For lunch and dinner I usually eat 2 or 3 fruits and/or vegetables. Salads made with either fruits or veggies or sometimes fruit is part of the dessert. Gotta love those banana splits!

I was always told if I was hungry to eat an apple. If I wasn’t hungry enough to eat an apple then I wasn’t hungry. I remember that old saying about how an apple a day keeps the doctor away. I eat at least one apple everyday, usually more. Seems to be working. No health issues. A person like me who shops at least once a week at a produce store has a good selection of fresh fruit and vegetables in the crisper. I also grow my own fruits and vegetables. I have a few fruit trees around the yard and grow rhubarb, strawberries and raspberries too. Nice going out in the morning when they’re in season and having fresh berries with my cereal. I’m not big on growing vegetables and technically that rhubarb is a vegetable but I have potatoes, onions, lettuce, pumpkins, and tomatoes on the grow. Except not all of them grow so well…. It’s kind of fun trying though. Kind of like burying the top of a pineapple and hoping for a crop. I keep doing it no matter how many times I don’t get a pineapple crop. So much for those fucking Amway losers who stop by this blog and call me a quitter.

Do I sound like a person who needs to take 2 Nutrilite vitamins daily to get my 5 to 10 servings of fruit and vegetables? Sometimes I can get in my daily intake just be wandering around the garden and snacking!

Nutrilite Fruit and Vegetable vitamins cost $40.99. There are 60 vitamins in a bottle but you gotta take 2 a day so it only lasts a month. Amway was kind enough to break down the amount down on their website - costs $1.37 per day. They are very careful to say 2 vitamins a day = the amount of phytonutrients in over 10 servings of fruit and veggies though it excludes mentioning which 10 fruits and vegetables were part of this study. Hell they exclude who did the survey. Maybe some Amway employees penned it after a night of drinking!

I usually spend less than $20/week on fresh fruit and vegetables but lets call it $20 for the sake of rounding up. Divided by 2 people is $10/week for this good stuff. Divide by 7 days = $1.43 a day to get 5 to 10 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables daily. Just pennies a day more than Amway's 2 vitamins. For real food. Good food that you can actually eat and not feel hungry afterwards. I can't say that about vitamins!

The bigger picture is what are people not getting by eating those shitty vitamins instead of fresh fruit and vegetables. The health benefits. Many fruits and vegetables are thought to be cancer fighters, help prevent osteoporosis, and other possible benefits for preventing some illnesses. What about fibre? What about Vitamins A, B, and C? What about Potassium? What about Iron? I could go on and on but I'm sure you get the picture.

None of that in those Nutrilite concentrated fruit and vegetable vitamins. Or maybe there is but its not listed on Amway's nutritional information on their web page. Could be trace amounts.

There are other options available such as V8 juices and similar juices that equal 2 fruit servings by drinking a glass. Its not my first choice but it would be preferable to gulping back 2 vitamins.

I can not fill up on 2 vitamins a day the way I can by eating an apple, a banana, a cup of grapes, sticking a sweet potato in the microwave, or adding a tomato to my sandwich. I’m already at 5 servings of fruit and vegetables and its probably not even dinnertime. Its not hard to get those servings in.

Nutrilite sucks! So do those fucking Amway assholes that tell you to eat vitamins instead of fresh produce!

And now its time to go water my garden!


  1. Rhubarb-Now you've got me hungry!

    1. LOL! Sometime between when this post first appeared and now most of the rhubarb bit the dust!


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
