Shakeology Product Description

Shakeology is a nutritional shake that is marketed as both a protein and meal replacement shake.  Honestly, it is neither but closer to a protein shake.  It does not contain enough calories to be a meal replacement supplement and it does contain 17G of protein but no essentials in helping break down the protein.  Bottom line, you don’t buy this to use after your workout and you don’t buy it to completely replace meals.

Pro’s

  • Tastes good
  • Good mixer for meal replacement
  • Variety of quality vitamins / minerals
  • Noted for its quality ingredients

Con’s

  • Promoted by Beachbody coaches to get more sales
  • Very expensive
  • Inefficient calories / protein to be full meal replacement

So you’re probably saying, this guy is crazy!! I lost 15 lbs when I used Shakeology! It is amazing!… Of course you did.  If I gave you a 160 calorie salad with 17 grams of protein from grilled chicken and a multivitamin, then told you to eat that for lunch every day, I can almost guarantee you would lose weight.  Why?  Because of the calorie deficit and essential vitamins and minerals added to your diet.

So why drink Shakeology then?  It contains a variety of nutrients, vitamins, and 17g of quality protein.  Shakeology is an excellent additional nutritional supplement to use.  Instead of using it solely as a meal replacement, mix it with some other ingredients and you’ll have a nutrient packed meal.  This is a great ~400 calorie nutrient packed breakfast:

Great tasting shakeology recipe and calorie sufficient meal replacement shake:

  • Chocolate Shakeology
  • Peanut Butter
  • Honey
  • Banana


Who Should Purchase Shakeology?  

You’re probably thinking shakeology is great and everyone recommends it, so why shouldnt I use it?  Well, A) it is very expensive for what you get.  At around $4 a serving and the fact that it doesn’t stand alone as a meal replacement, you’ll have to spend additional money to create a calorie sufficient meal, B) Beachbody has a multi-level marketing program where “Beachbody Coaches” get a kickback for you buying Beachbody products.  AKA not all of those reviews you read are unbiased.

I’m not going to sit here and say that Shakeology is a bad product, its not and its from a very reputable company. Its a high quality product and worth a try, unfortunately, its just not long-term affordable for most.
