    Shakeology Meal Replacement Shake

    Shakeology is well-known and popular choice for a meal replacement shake. It’s brought to you by Beachbody, the creators of popular in-home fitness workouts P90X and Insanity. Based on the reputation of these workout programs alone, without doing any research on the shake itself, one could initially assume that this is an effective, high quality meal replacement shake. These workouts definitely aren’t for everyone and are insanely intense and difficult, but they also produce impressive results when you stick with them. This is a review website though, and we’re not crazy about assumptions. Naturally, we have to dig deeper.

    Price

    This well-known product may be popular, but it is expensive. At $130 for a monthly supply, the numbers add up fast. Theoretically you could stop buying the shakes once you reached your goal, but depending on how much you want to lose, that could end up costing many, many hundreds of dollars! For many people, this shake simply isn’t affordable.

    Let’s take a look at their top seller, Vanilla formula. With over 70 high quality and unique ingredients, it’s a powerhouse. All of these ingredients aid increasing energy, and improving digestion and regularity, while simultaneously providing you the necessary nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you need in your daily diet. To the manufacturer’s credit, there are no “evil” nutrients here, only powdered vestiges of healthy fruits and plants in minuscule and insignificant quantities.

    Sounds like a recipe for weight loss. Additionally, each serving of Shakeology Vanilla contains 16 grams of protein and 130 calories. This is a reasonable amount of protein and calories. There are shakes out there with less, but considering that this shake is replacing an entire meal, 130 calories is a good number. This meal replacement shake includes a mix of super-fruit and antioxidant ingredients like camu-camu, acai, goji berry, and green tea. Their website states that these sort of ingredients “promote a healthy heart and optimal blood pressure.” The shake also contains pre- and probiotic ingredients such as yacon root and amylase, to promote healthy digestion and regularity.

    What is Fructose and why is it in Shakeology?

    Unfortunately there is a significant factor that, in our opinion, lowers our overall opinion of this shake.  At the very bottom of the ingredients list on the Vanilla shake, we see that fructose is listed. Fructose (a form of sugar) has become controversial as of late.

    1. Fructose rapidly causes leptin resistance. Leptin is a hormone that controls appetite and metabolism to maintain a normal weight. Leptin resistant people tend to gain fat and become obese really easily.

    So much so that the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has conducted studies that suggest similar findings of weight gain. That being said, it’s not clear what the effect fructose has in this meal replacement shake. Regardless, in our opinion, the sugar level is a bit high at 7 grams per serving for a meal replacement shake, particularly in comparison to the 1 or 2 grams in some other meal replacement shakes.

    Bottom line: Save your money as there are less expensive low sugar, high quality shakes out there. At $130 a month, you can purchase a plethora of fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds. You’ll get the nutrients you need from real food, and still have cash left over to spend on a less expensive shake.

      Not only they add fructose, but also Xanthan Gum, just another name for sugar! I love the shakeology shake, but I honestly believe that a real superfood should have no added sugar, which is a toxin to our bodies.

      I used Shakeology for about one year. I started using it for weight loss, but continued using it because of the changes I seen in my health. My memory improved. I had been slurring words and having problems when speaking; This cleared up while using this product. I suffered from leg cramps that stopped after I started using the product. My nails became strong; they were so thin they tore before. I had chest sensations (seemingly caused by my heart) that stopped while using this product. While I was not successful losing weight (because I do not have good self control) this product offers much in the way of overall health. I found it was very affective at curbing my appetite and reduced cravings. The fact that I did not lose weight was totally due to lack of self control. I hate to say that I did finally have to stop buying the product because it was so expensive. I hope to be able to purchase it again when my financial situation allows for it. I always used the chocolate shake. The taste is not all that great, but with the health improvements I experienced it was definitely worth drinking.

      finally received my shakes after a month of ordering. Disappointed with the amount of transit time but just drank a chocolate one and it was very good. Thought it was a bit expensive and if i checked online i could of got it alot cheaper and not had to call to cancel the autoship program as it took me 20 mintues on hold to do so. Will see how it works but so far not to impressed

      Unfortunately, Shakeology is manufactured in a plant the processes wheat so there is glutton in the the product. I am very sensitive to glutton. The Beachbody folks were very supportive and understanding in canceling my auto ship order.

      I was so excited to start Shakeology. At first, I love it. I lost 15 pounds with the shakes and the T25 Workout. Love Shawn T! But, unfortunately, I broke out with hives on my feet and hands and now all over my body after the first 2 to 4 weeks of taking this product. I am now battling hives and it is horrible. I had an allergic reaction to something in the ingredients of this product and I am now seeing an allergist. PLEASE look at the ingredients first before you put anything in your body. It was not worth the weight loss and I have been miserable.

        Oh no! We’re so sorry to hear that you had an adverse reaction to Shakeology’s shakes! You’re right, it’s important to check the ingredients before committing to a particular shake. We’ve found that the best shakes to avoid allergic reactions are plant based, such as Arbonne.

      Your review FAILS to consider that this is promoted as a weight loss shake, and there is FRUCTOSE in it which causes insulin resistance, and then you have MSM…which NO ONE should ever take longer than 3 months due to excessive side effects and long term damage to adrenal glands…this is also NOT safe for those with candida issues as there are two types of mushrooms used…so ah what point is this considered healthy???????

        Hi Susan, thanks for voicing your concerns. Meal replacement shakes are commonly used as part of a weight loss program, but not exclusively. We try to take care to encompass all the possible uses of meal replacement shakes in our reviews and not single out weight loss. We did note that fructose is included in Shakeology’s recipe and we’re just as concerned about that as you are! We cannot give consumers answers as to what the healthiest choice is for them individually. We can only provide a look into nutritional facts and leave the decision making process up to you!

      Have used Shakeology for 18 months. I lost 30 pounds in the first 6months with a P90X3 workout . Kept up the Shakeology but have eaten more to not lose anymore weight. It worked for me. I find I have more energy and only require 7 – 8 hours of sleep per night where as pre taking Shakeology I was getting tired by 2:00 PM and fighting it till I left work at 6:00 PM. I recommend it for better energy level.

      It is correct about the high sugar, however, if you notice the taste of cinnamon. Cinnamon is a natural insulin, and it counteracts the sugar.

      I am on my 2nd month of strawberry shakeology and I am amazed! I am very much of a skeptic so I did not have much hope for this product. I started it in hopes to lose 15 pounds and I see it working even without the exercise program that I should be following. As of today, I have lost 8 pounds and only exercised 3 times in the 41 days that I have been on the program. I truly believe if I would exercise my 15 pounds would be gone by now but I hate to exercise (I know that is bad). The weight lose is not the major factor of why I am continuing the program though, for the past 3 years or more I have suffered from 3 day migraines monthly and since I have started the program I have not had a migraine. Also my energy level is up and my cravings for junk food have decreased. So as long as I continue to not have migraines I will continue to stay on this program and pay the price. As for the taste, I like it – I add one banana to my strawberry shakeology and blend it with water /ice which keeps me full from 8-2pm and then I have a salad for lunch and a light dinner.

      I love shakeology! It tastes great. My kids love it as well. Every month I get the multi-flavor box. Sometimes it makes a difference what you mix it with. I will mix it with water but I prefer to blend it in a blender with ice, a little low fat milk and water. Sometimes with my kids I will use chocolate or vanilla and put a thing of yogurt in it so chocolate with strawberry yogurt, ice and water makes a choc covered strawberry shake. I’ll mix the strawberry shake with banana and water for a strawberry banana. My health overall and how I feel as greatly improved since drinking this. Also if I ever want to change my home direct, the flavor or ship date I just call or submit an online form. It’s easy & the customer service people are very helpful.

      My husband and I have been drinking Shakeology for 4 months. It has changed a lot for us. Increased energy and my mommy fog brain is disappearing after years of fatigue and lack of motivation. My carpal tunnel and joint pain is also GONE! I suffered for years with achy joints. We are losing weight and feeling great we drink the Vegan Chocolate, and I am not sure about this review saying its horrible, ITS DELICIOUS! We add some spinach or kale and ice 🙂 Yum I think I will go have one now 🙂

      I Love tis product. If you have an issue with taste, because you are just using the shake mix and either water or almond milk and ice, it taste better when you add in fruit and such. There are numerous healthy recipes available. I have had a big issue with my weight most of my adult life so far and took the plunge and tried this. I’m hooked! This is not a magic shake that takes inches off. This is a health shake to go along with a healthy diet and exercise program. Its a lifestyle not a fad diet. I believe in Beachbody so much that I actually became a coach myself. Not to earn money from it, but to teach others a new healthy lifestyle.

      I do not sell this product so I have nothing to gain by commenting here . I just wanted to say I don’t understand all the chatter about taste – I have used the product for 1 week and the taste is good – is it as good as a milk shake from McDonalds ? No it is not but it is so much healthier . Their are so many healthy items in here it is crazy so do your body a favor and sacrifice some taste for a very healthy meal replacement .

      PS: I like your effort here but your reporting seems biased until you talk apples to apples. Your calorie and price claims are simply wrong when you look at how little Yoli and 310 offer. (I have not sampled Evolve.) Your “x” rather than a check for Shakeology fiber (indicating less than 5 grams per serving) is inaccurate. Servings of various flavors have 5 or more grams. Price is also wrong, depending on who is buying. Sugar claim is also too high. I have used Yoli, 310, shakeology, and Isagenix. Pound for pound, each has some advantage, depending on why you use it. Body builders will favor the higher protein of Isagenix but for pure health and nutrition, most will favor shakeology. Taste is subjective so why bother referencing? Please consider a pound for pound review.

      I start my day with this one everyday. (I have not experienced over charges and use auto-ship for easy reordering.) If I need more protein after a workout, I may have another shake with some extra protein powder added (usually a scoop of IsaPro whey protein); or I might use IsaLean, which has a much higher protein serving. I understand 310 appears cheaper but it is not when you see the size of the servings. It has more fiber proportionally, but less of EVERYTHING per serving – more than 1/3 less, which makes it more expensive unless you aim to starve yourself. Unless you use a metabolism enhancer, (which I do not), starving yourself on low-cal shakes will slow your metabolism and may cause you to gain weight.

      I have been taking Shakeology for only 6 days. I have already noticed a difference in energy, and I’ve lost 5 lbs in 6 days. I am also doing the 21 day fix which I am sure has something to do with it. In 6 days I no longer crave my bowl of ice cream every night and I just feel better all around. I am a huge sweets craver and I am not craving any sweets. As far as the taste goes, I tried the regular chocolate, and wasn’t a fan, however I have also tried the vegan tropical strawberry and the vegan chocolate and they both have a much better taste. I believe taste is individual. I don’t think you can rate something on taste. What tastes good to one person can taste aweful to another. I will be sticking with shakeology for sure.

      I am not a shake lover, but I started the 21 day fix and wanted to give the shakes a shot. I really like them. I have tried chocolate and vanilla. The chocolate is my favorite, but I love the versatility of the vanilla. There are so many varieties to makes many flavors, you could have a different flavor each day if you wanted. Even in the simplest ways, by adding a banana, peanut butter, or strawberries to name a few. The also make me feel really good, I am using them as a meal replacement for one meal a day and they do keep me feeling full. If I drink the shake in the morning, I don’t need coffee, it seems to give me the same energy as caffeine. The big downfall of this product is the cost! Way too expensive, if I stop using this product, it would be because of the cost.

      Can’t tell you how many people I have talked to that have turned around their digestive problems after starting Shakeology. They were taking Shakeology for weight loss or adding protein and were happily surprised with the cessation of IBS symptoms. Maybe their systems were missing some important nutrients but whatever – they are sticking with the product. I enjoy the chocolate, I haven’t gained weight from the sugar everyone seems to complain about, and it improves my mood.

I have been using this daily and feel the BEST i have felt in my life and it has a dreamy flavor and LOW glycemic index. HIGHLY recommended!!! If you want feedback on this amazing product from an experienced user, email gudmund@mymts.net! Oh, and regarding some of the comments below about customer service….the customer service is impeccable with Beachbody!! NO COMPLAINTS here! NO aftertaste, no artificial ingredients…just pure amazing SUPERfood to prevent cancer, disease and promote wellbeing and energy..who wouldnt want that? 🙂

      Tastes pretty good (I had the chocolate), and I usually use frozen strawberries with it. But, the price is prohibitive. I suggest you try and review the Sun Warrior products. The vegans are good, but need to supplement the flavor. For chocolate, I usually add a tsp of cocoa powder, and for vanilla, I usually add a half to one tsp of vanilla extract. Added with frozen sweet cherries is awesome. To get the antioxidant part, I add a scoop of organic super green food. Together the cost of both is way cheaper than Shakeology with approximately the same nutrition profile. Plus, sun warrior lists the amino acid profile and is great for a recovery drink or meal replacement.

      I find the whole Beachbody empire cultish and off-putting. It’s a multi-level marketing scheme (aka pyramid scheme) that turns normal people into annoying non-stop carnival barkers on social media as they try to recruit new customers. Nevertheless, I tried shakeology because a friend had lost weight on it and I was looking to jump-start my own weight loss.

      The shakes are fine. I ordered several months’ worth of the chocolate shake and I did find that it filled me up until lunch. As a quick meal on the go, it was a fine solution. And I think it does taste better than many others I’ve tried (Vega and other brands available at Whole Foods). However, after a while of near-daily use I began to develop a lot of stomach discomfort, gas, and cramping. After experimenting with different possible sources, I identified the culprit as the stevia in the shake. There’s no way around it so I called to cancel today. I hope they actually follow through on that.

      So, in summary: If you can overlook their strong-arm sales policies and are willing to be roped into a monthly subscription (if you aren’t, you’ll have to pay $15 shipping per individual order), it’s a perfectly good shake. But be sure you have a strong stomach.

        I have been using Shakeology for almost 4 years now. I have been able to keep my weight off for over 2 years now. I hardly ever get sick, if I get any cold or flu symptoms they don’t last more than 48 hours, compare to weeks of being sick in the past. My favorite is the chocolate, and my least favorite is Vanilla. I mix them with different fruits and nut butter to change the flavors.

        I”ve had a very good experience with the customer service when I need to return a product because I have too much. You have to talk to a real person in order to cancel the subscription, you cannot do it through the automated service. If I didn’t like the flavor they had nicely send me another one at no cost to me. I have not tried any other shake as good as Shakeology. Buying it as a coach is only $99, and you have the ability to just sell enough to pay for it, or just buy it at a discount without any other commitments. I love their fitness programs, is the only company that combines fitness and nutrition as its best. Yes, I am a coach. I lost 30 pounds, kept them off, and I’m in the best shape of my life thanks to Shakeology and Beachbody.

        That’s because you had the “home direct” auto shipment. When you order it, at the bottom in the small print it says that you have signed up for the auto shipment and at the end of the 30 days you will be charged again. When you call to cancel make sure that you tell them which product and that you want to be taken off the auto shipment or “home direct.”

      The first few days that I used Shakology it worked as advertised, kept me full was a good breakfast replacement. However after about the first week I noticed that I was hungry after only an hour.
      Not all it was advertised to be. It also has the aftertaste of artificial sweetener.

        My understanding is that the product is sweetened with fructose. How does it have an aftertaste of artificial sweetener when it supposedly contains no artificial sweetener?

          We aren’t quite sure how anyone can identify an artificial sweetener based on the aftertaste, but if Shakeology did contain artificial sweetener, it would be stated in the ingredients list.

      The chocolate is the best flavor, and when mixed with ice it tastes like a milkshake. But there are 2 serious draw bags. A bag is $150, which is absurd. In addition the amount of sugar and sodium is high. So with all the nutrients in there, the quality if the shake is diminished because 2 serious health offenders make up a significant percentage of the ingredients. I have thus been motivate to gind other more nutritious options that just happen to be less expensive.

        I agree about the price but find the sugar content not so bad – 9 grams. Have you found an alternative? I was also looking for something cheaper with the same or better benefits

      I have been taking Shakeology off and on for about 2 years. I have suffered from chronic migraines and arthritis for a long time. I recently started drinking it daily for the past 2 months. Since starting I have not had any migraines and my arthritis pain has reduced immensely!! I am now a coach because I believe this HEALTH shake can help tons of people. It is not just a weight loss shake and that is what makes it different than anything out there!!

      Your information regarding the source of sugars and the amount of FRUCTOSE is erroneous and needs to be corrected. There are several flavors of Shakeology without ANY fructose. Get your facts straight before you publish them for public review.

        hello TJM, we are always looking to be accurate. For these reviews we only reviewed Shakeologys flagship products of choc/van which both contain fructose. You are correct in that there are a couple flavors without this ingredient, ie., the GreenBerry and Vegan chocolate. As soon as we get enough request to review these specific flavors we would be happy to! For a complete breakdown of which flavors have fructose and which do not please refer to their company website at http://www.shakeology.com/shake-flavors?SHAKEOLOGY_CART_ID=0#chocolate-vegan

      I have been drinking Shakeology for about a year now. I love the Chocolate Vegan flavor and the Tropical Berries. It is also vegan. My other favorite flavors are Greenberry, Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry in that order. I had never used a shake before to loose weight. But my husband has been a gym guy for many years and he buys all kinds of supplements a month, that make a price of shakeology 1/3 of what he spends. I liked that it is more than “protein shake”, it is a meal replacement packed with fruit and vegetables, pre and probiotics, enzymes, superfoods. I did for me what they advertised: it gave me energy, it reduced my cravings and improved my digestion. I drink it with 1/2 banana, 2-3 strawberries, 4 pieces of ice and 8oz of Coconut water, or water. Sometimes Almond milk. Or just the ice and water. Hope this helps!

      I have had health problems in the past. I changed alot of my eating habits 2 years ago. Even with the healthy lifestyle that I live it has been a struggle to lose weight. I was very disappointed with Shakeology. Since I have been trying to get 20 pounds off I thought that shakeology would be a step in the right direction. I don’t feel that this is for people that do eat right and have a very active life style. If eating deep fried, junk, and non portion foods is the lifestyle that you are used to, then this may work for you. This definitely isn’t worth me spending 140$ for 30 days of something that isn’t going to jump start a weight lose. I have read reviews and was optimistic. after trying this product I would not recommend it to my friends.

      I do not really have a handle on the amount of each ingredient though together it does sound healthy. I have tried the Vanilla and chocolate. The Vanilla tastes horrible. We actually just threw it out as even with almond milk it tastes awful. The Beachbody coach said to mix it with jello but that is time consuming and I do not eat Jello routinely. The Chocolate is okay if you mix with lot of water/ice and really dilute it. It does make you feel full though. I am still on the fence as it does not really affect my work out and is like drinking medicine.

      just started using Shakeology…choc flavor…..I use almond milk and lots of ice in a blender, I’m usually not a chocolate fan, but find the taste amazing and it really does stop cravings thru-out the day and I have more energy and I’m feeling better each day…I’m hooked although it is a bit pricey for me

      Awful taste took getting used to. Way to sweet!!!! Now i mix it with lots of water and that helps. Im ok paying for the quality. True about the cravings, Calmed down my usually endless appetite and took the place of coffee. I’m really into it now. Going to try the other flavors and try to convince my children to start drinking it(my son hates veggies).

      liked shakeology samples, but truelly cannot afford the pricetag to purchase product, or the ridiculous shipping from beachbody, and eat quality foods from healthfood stores. Idid enjoy the shakes. But Will try others to make a final decision. Good health has a pricetag going to gym is only 30%. My diet is important to me and my goals, saving is hard on a barista salary:-)

      I love Shakeology. I have been using it for year now. I am amazed at how using it really has changed my eating habits. I no longer have cravings for junk food, and make much better choices in my regular meals. My health has improved, both in how I feel and in my medical test results. It may sound expensive however it costs about $4.. per serving, much less than what I’d spend on a fast food meal or a cup of coffee and doughnut; and I feel full and obviously have nourished my body not filled it with junk.
