- Ok. I’ve had it.
There’s a MLM out there bashing fake foods by offering to sell you….uh…..food?
But it’s not just any food.
It’s YEVO International Products sold by special and very well informed (not) YEVO International Distributors!
(Oh yeah…it’s special alright!)
Special Food that is so unique and original that it is sold ….are you ready for it?
In a freakin BOX!!!!!!
Come on…now tell me you didn’t see that coming?
We are here in world of processed foods and along comes YEVO International Distributors all pumped and hyped up telling you about how there are fake foods out there.
You sit and you think…YEAH! There are fake foods! I’ve had enough!
Down with the fake food!
Down with the bad nutrition!
Let’s attack this problem head on!
You get excited cause you know that YEVO International is going to whip out the best mlm products to solve the next best problem to world hunger and ….
wait for it…
wait for it…
It’s a ….
BOX OF FOOD.
Yeah. Minion Style. Let’s swear in a safe way. WTF.
Doesn’t that just drive you batty?
“Oh hey look! The world is filled with Kraft Macaronis and fake food and I have the perfect answer to our problem! Look what I can do! (like MAD TV jumping up and down and out whips the shit) I have a wonderful, spectacular, OMG I think it’s actually made of unicorn dust! BOX OF FREAKIN REAL? FOOD!”
I just can’t take it.
Ok…so let’s take a look at this. YEVO International (which I will do a more thorough review on the YEVO compensation plan and stuff later…but I can’t help myself here…I just found these guys and coming from a science background..this just kills me!)
First off, let me be upfront, this isn’t meant to bash YEVO (even though they will likely take it as such but it is certainly not my intention as it’s not just YEVO that is selling boxed “food”).
I actually like a lot of the “mission” that YEVO is using in their attraction internet network marketing ads, however, my issue comes with what they are doing to solve the problem they have found which is “fake foods” and the lack of educated Independent YEVO distributors out there.
It really really urks me to see a fake food being bashed only to promote a fake food.
Kind of like saying that killing people is bad and so we will kill you with a death penalty. ( I know there will be backlash on this comment but I’ve never understood it and there are times in my life where yes…..I like the death penalty killing baby molestors and sick mofo’s who do unspeakable things to children…..but…I still see the irony of it and don’t get it)
So here we are in 2015 with a “new” (it’s been around a little while but it just launched this year) mlm that focuses on the problem of the world that is corrupted by fake food.
Peter Castleman, so I hear, is an intense and superb marketer that is the brainchild of this “invention” along with a guy named Chip Marsland.
Their mission? “To reverse 100 years of bad foods”
I can solve this problem in ten seconds.
Hold out your hand.
I just gave you an apple.
Real Food baby. REAL FOOD.
(Don’t give me that crap about GMO’s and all that crap…it exists but it’s been around longer than you even know and it’s all hyped up because we now live in a world that seems to feed off of fear….crazy people)
So I’m sitting there just reading someone else’s blog about selling YEVO International Products and how it’s going to change the world and all I can find is mistake after mistake after mistake.
It totally just kills me!
For instance, this blog says: “Humans Need Three Things”
Now if you don’t second guess that statement, I can’t help you…
Oh wait a minute…maybe I can.
But for the sake of pure entertainment at this point…Oh…please..please dear YEVO International Distributor, can you please tell me what YEVO says are the three things (wow that’s it?) that humans need?
Ok…so now I know you are going…”but that sounds good to me Charissa, what else do we need?”
And that’s when I go…Alrighty then!
What do you need in order to be alive? WHAT do humans need?
So the YEVO International Distributor got it somewhat right..but not really because their whole point in telling you that you need oxygen, water and nutrients is to make you think that two of them are solved and YEVO International products will solve the third.
But there are not just three.
Humans go WAAAAY beyond just three things in order of needs.
I mean I could go on for days about what humans need but I suppose we should strip it down to some basics….like total bare bones here (nevermind that humans need social interaction and crap like that right?) …so if we strip it down…then the YEVO Distributor wasn’t too far off point but they did forget one essential and very important thing that doctors actually monitor in us everytime we visit them….Thermoregulation.
Humans need Oxygen (I’ll tell you why in a moment), Water (we are mostly water and water if our responsible for transport between cells), Nutrients (aka Energy and Building Blocks) AND THERMOREGULATION (and other stuff but we are going bare bones today!).
You can throw all the O2, H2O and vitamins and minerals at me that you want but if you don’t give me shelter, you crazy YEVO International person, then what use is your box of non fake fake food? (ON a side note, I bet you I would love YEVO stuff because I do like oatmeal)
The YEVO Distributor goes on to say that “Nutrients help you grow, live, heal.”
I have a problem with that too.
Maybe I’m being picky here, but uncontrolled growth is cancer and I’m not really thinking that I want too much growing on here….but I will take repair, replacement and regeneration.
So I’m just nit picking here and it really depends on how we twist the word grow.
So just forget that I’m annoyed and keep reading.
So this YEVO Distributor then says…
“Every YEVO Food provides 50% of 43 essentials in every serving… Yes! WE can change the world.”
50% of what?
50% recommended for me? You? My baby? A donkey?
What are the 43 essentials?
Why do I need them?
What the heck are you trying to sell me?
Oh wait…Let’s take a look at what one of the top YEVO Distributors has to say:
Ok…so what you’re saying is..our bodies DON’T produce proteins? (wrong. wrong. wrong!)
And how in the world does that change the world?
Humans have lived on this Earth for HUNDREDS OF YEARS.
You’re telling me a box of food is going to “change the world”.
I’m sorry…but changing the world, for me, needs to include some sort of plan to stop violence and senseless murders. …not boxes of overpriced oatmeal. (Now don’t think I’m insensitive and that I’m saying that the world doesn’t need food….but this is not just food…it’s overpriced “fake food”.)
If you have been thinking about becoming a YEVO International Distributor, I don’t blame you and I do like how they continually encourage you to do your “due diligence” and research their company…which by the way is a part of their selling tactic.
If they tell you to go check out others, you automatically trust them in some ways because they give you permission to leave and do your thing. So you might just decide that you don’t have to do research (which is what I bet you they “bank” on because the information (at least that I’m getting) is not 100% legit and I feel that they could do a much better job educating you on the “why” of their product other then “We Can Change the World”
I LOVE that mission though.
I’ve been trying to change the world since I’ve been born so it really touches me.
Almost made me join.
It’s a simple mission (although, after looking at the information they are putting out there, I have decided they would be much better at saving the world if they could get everyone to eat a piece of cheese and a banana)
I have no doubt that YEVO will spike in some success in the mlm world because of it. They have some truly talented internet network marketors on their team and I’m hugely impressed with their skills BUT I have a huge problem with misinformation and “polite scare tactics”. By “polite scare tactics” I mean that they have found a problem (really..we know the problem already because it’s called JUNK FOOD and PROCESSED FOODS) and then they are repackaging it and reselling it to you…..and in my opinion in a whole new packaged problem.
The world wasn’t meant to be packaged.
Food wasn’t meant to be wrapped up.
If you’re going to call food fake….then you HAVE to offer me real food.
Real food comes from the Earth….and it DOES NOT have magic nutrients infused in it.
I believe that our bodies are adapted to the seasons that the nutrients are available and that we are not suppose to have certain nutrients during certain times of the year and when we do, it messes with our biorhythms and not to mention our excretory systems.
But that’s just me.
I mean…I’m a human. I don’t really know much about myself do I? I have no clue about nature and things like that (this is very very sarcastic btw)
So..maybe you find a nutrient that our bodies benefit from.
But that doesn’t mean we need it everyday.
It’s like kissing.
Remember that first kiss?
The one you waited for?
The really really good one? (not the one from Aunt Sally with the mole on her face)
Then you dated that person and you kissed all the time and then eventually the kiss became a habit and it wasn’t as “good” as the first time?
But then you had some time apart and when you got back together you had “that kiss” again?
Don’t you think our bodies emulate in the same way?
Our bodies react in positive ways (think about drug addicts) and they develop resistance (think pesticides) and eventually it takes more and more of that stuff to make an impact again.
If we push these YEVO international products and put 43 “essential” nutrients in our bodies from these foods, we are putting drugs in our bodies (“a chemical substance used in the treatment, cure, prevention, or diagnosis of disease or used to otherwise enhance physical or mental well-being”-http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/drug) and we are risking resistance to these nutrients in an entire population that is eating them.
The irony here is that they are saying the “fake” foods are bad and then they offer YEVO International products that have these substances to help us enhance our current situation and they even offer to “Save the world!”
What are we saving? Our time on this Earth as humans because we are pushing natural selection to work faster?
I don’t know…maybe I’m over thinking all this.
Like I said…I LOVE the idea…but something isn’t right.
It’s like telling a kid to not hit because hitting is not nice and then when they don’t sit down at the dinner table or they don’t stop running around the kitchen island….what do you do? You spank them. Spanking is hitting…fyi.
Ok…so let’s take a look at some of these “essential” nutrients.
YEVO International Distributors are saying that essential nutrients are carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins and mineral that our bodies require daily but can’t make on their own…..stuff that HAS to come from our diet.
(BTW…our bodies make proteins, fats and carbohydrates….so that statement is inaccurate….what our bodies do is use nutrients to make these macromolecules that are needed for biological processes such as cellular respiration.
Our bodies also need to ingest macromolecules and break them down too. Kind of like taking old car parts and building new cars.
Our bodies just shift the elements that we ingest into other molecules and such for whatever our bodies need them for….it’s far too complicated to explain on this blog post and expect you to get it……but …to say our bodies don’t make these things is pure misinformation.
Remember protein synthesis in high school? You know…that little thing where our cells MAKE PROTEIN??? Just sayin.)
OH..and here’s the proof of them saying it:
It would make me much happier if the YEVO International Distributor who was trying to “educate” the public on what our bodies need and what they can and can not make were a little more educated because I can’t stand that people are going to learn from them and it’s WRONG!
So…YEVO International Distributors go on to say that the World Health Organization says that there are 43 essential nutrients….then it says YEVO products provide you with these 43 nutrients daily with “real foods from nature”.
They take these “real foods from nature” and add any missing nutrients.
I’m not getting it.
Knock my head against the wall and slap my right ear with a wet zucchini noodle.
Maybe I’m just not getting it.
So…real foods from nature need nutrients? So if they need nutrients are they considered fake until you add to them or are they real and then you make them fake by adding to them?
It has to be one or the other right?
Because in order to NOT be a FAKE FOOD that you are telling people is the problem, you would have to be offering me real food right?
Ok…not to beat a dead horse but really?
Back to the essential nutrients.
Let’s talk about them: [fyi..all amino acids are used to make proteins.(but one of the founding YEVO International Distributors says that our bodies don’t make proteins WRONG!!!! )..so just remember that so I don’t have to repeat it]
- Leucine -Amino Acid that needs to be ingested. This is one that we do not synthesize. Used to make proteins! You can get it by eating that real food called MEAT. (or soy if you don’t like meat). Used as an additive that enhances the flavor of “fake foods.
- Isoleucine – Amino Acid that we must ingest. It is stored in high quantities in our bodies already and we get from most white meats, cheese and eggs.
- Valine– Amino Acid. Meat. (any questions?)
- Tryptophan -AminoAcid. Used to prevent illness or death (yikes!) Needed for neurotransmitter stuffs (really scientific sounding I know) and lack of it can be a cause of depression. Find it in Chocolate, milk, red meat…tons of stuff really. There is scientific evidence that blood tryptophan is NOT altered by any change in diet. ..AND…Did you know that in 1989 1500 people were permanently disabled AND at least 37 people died because of an outbreak associated with the intake of Tryptophan? (Too much of a “good thing” Can KILL YOU.
- Histidine-Amino Acid. Too much can strip zinc from body cells.
- Lysine-Amino Acid. Good skin stuff. High protein Foods.
- Methionin – Amio Acid. Eggs, seeds, nuts,fish chicken BACON!!(I don’t know about you, but I’d rather eat Bacon then a box of dehydrated “essential” fake food, Rice and a ton more! And…get this…Scientific Research suggests that actually restricting Methionin can increase the life span of some animals. So if you are buying this YEVO International Product and getting 50% (of whatever it is they give you) you may actually be decreasing your lifespan! Yikes!8
- Threonine –Amino Acid. Cottage Cheese, chicken, fish, meat. Makes CoA utilized in bio processes.I’m starting to think if I just eat meat and eat healthy, I might just get my 43 essential nutrients. Crazy huh?
- Phenylalanine – Amino Acid. Milk. Meat,Ham, Fish, Spinach.
- Tyrosine –Amino Acid. Signal transduction..Chicken, fish, yogurt, cheese, seeds, bananas
- Cysteine –Amino Acid that is required by sheep to make wool. Cool huh? It is a non essential amion acide and is rarely needed in people who have absorption issues. OUR BODIES MAKE IT as long as Methionin is available…eggs, seed, bacon. Used in hair perms as well.
- Linoleic Acid- Fatty acid. Found in cellular memebranes, it is found in nuts, vegetable oils with sunflower or corn oil. Used in oils and paints.Anti Inflammatory and acne reducer when applied topically. Chicken fat, olive oil, butter, lots of different types of vegetable oils.
- Polyunsatruated Fatty Acid- Fatty acids that are found in nuts, seeds, fish, leafy greens. Help reduce disease factors
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D —OK I’m going to stop now. I’m wasting too much of my life figuring out that I don’t have to eat a box of expensive YEVO International foods in order to get what I need to be healthy. I just have to eat real food….like meat, nuts, greens….surprise surprise!
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B3
- Vitamin B5
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
Did you ever take vitamins and pee and it was neon yellow? You ever wonder what that was?
It was probably 43 essential nutrients that your body said was not essential and got rid of.
Can you imagine the extra work your poor kidneys have to go through to get rid of excessive amounts of processed food stuffs like “essential nutrients” that it can’t use?
CAn you say Kidney stones?
Remember that old adage about if you fix one problem another comes along.
It’s not a wive’s tale. It’s a fact of nature.
For example, if you get rid of one problem like mosquitos in your back yard, you develop a whole new problem that may stay under the radar for a while….like the bat population is declining….all because you had to kill mosquitos…but you might not even know about that until you are long gone from that place.
Remember DDT? That was the perfect fix to a problem too right?
Speaking of fixing problems. Do you have a problem with NOT thinking like a Millionaire? Go here and watch these Millionaire Mentoring Videos and stop making excuses.
So, before you go and buy those YEVO International Products or before you decide to become a YEVO International Distributor..PLEASE PLEASE educate yourself properly before going out into the world and telling them that our bodies can’t make proteins and we have to ingest 43 nutrients in order to be healthy.
If you area looking for a way to make money by selling products on line or you just want to be able to stay home with your kids, why not get real online internet marketing coaches to show you how?
You don’t have to join a mlm company and you can put all of your money into your own business.
It’s way easier to sell something if you know your product and the mlm Coaching program I’m in does just that…and even better than that? You get to pick what you sell. It’s not a mlm…so you literally can use the process they teach you to sell anything….yes…including YEVO International Products.
