    A friend was telling me about usana and all the products they offer. I have not heard much about the company and was just curious if anyone else has. Sounds like a great company but thought I would see what others know about it. Any info would be appreciated.

    if you do go to a meeting "accidentally" forget your credit card they ask you for it when they're done.. after cramming you into a room with like 200 other people and for some odd reason its super hot... and there is not enough water for everyone..

    Yes....I have sex with this guy who latter turn to be a usana dealer (he a great top , btw). During breakfast I told him about my struggle to lose weight and mine on the borderline blood pressure . Sure enough came all those talk about MLM, health product and magic pill. Just like mention by other there a meeting attended by other potential customer /dealer and a talk about usana. I have not attend any eventhough he have ask me to join a couple of time. They alway meet during Saturday nite, which it really bad. I been trying to get him to come over for more sex , but he prefer to attend he weekly meeting. I guess he think making money is more fun than topping me.

    I read that article and it doesn't surprise me at all.

    I thought it was kind of funny that it's pretty much impossible to actually turn a profit with them anymore.

    Hey Guys. I've read through the USANA comments. I find the comments a little negative. I'm not trying to sell you anything just clearing the things up a little for ya. I haven't personally experienced any of the room crowding etc. But everyone does business a little different. Pyramid Schemes are illegal and USANA is a legal and publicly traded company on the NYSE and a member of the Direct Sellers Association. I’m a personal trainer and performance coach and have used and promoted USANA products for almost 11 years now with great results. USANA has a 1 million dollar guarantee for Olympic Athletes that they won’t test positive for any banned substance. The only supplement company to put their money where their mouth is. This has attracted many athletes to USANA as consumers as they realize the necessity of good pharmaceutical grade supplements in today’s world. You can check out the company at www.usana.com without having anyone hassle you. Or go to my website at www.healthyoutlook.usana.com and take a look around.
    I feel bad for those of you who had a bad experience with another distributor but we’re not all pushy and when I have information sessions with my clients etc. I don’t even sell anything I just educate. I think some people just get caught up in the money and forget it’s a great product line and can make a difference in people lives. I love to help people live healthier lives whatever changes that may take. From personal training, diet, sleep, stress to supplements but it’s always about helping the person before financial gain.
    I hope you keep an open mind and don’t let one bad experience keep you from learning.
    Take care and good health to everyone.

    Hey Jonny;
    Did you ever look into this? You can also check out my website for info, videos etc. at www.healthyoutlook.usana.com or the public site at www.usana.com. They're a public traded company on the NYSE so you can check them out there as well. Let me know if you have any questions at all.
