Description:


Shakeology is the most expensive shake in our review of various meal replacement shakes. This is your health we are talking about, so what do you get for the expensive price? Read on for more details.

This shake consists of over 70 different ingredients, including good quality non-soy protein, a full amino acid profile, camu-camu, maca root, sacha inchi, acai berries and other additives. Pea protein, when added to a Shakeology shake, is a good choice if you want to block your hunger.

Our WLT team decided to test it out.
We were shocked when we discovered that it was a very expensive item, costing about $120 for 30 days. It will cost over $135 after adding the costs of taxes and shipping/handling. This comes to around $4 per serving!

Top Benefits:

quality non-soy protein,good appetite suppressant, exotic ingredients

Negative:

high price, poor taste, high in calories, high sugars

tips

We ordered the chocolate flavor and the green berry flavor for our test reviews. After testing each flavor, our team found that not one of us liked it. We were very disappointed that this expensive product did not meet our expectations in terms of taste. Click here to learn more

However, the Shakeology formula includes quality ingredients, despite its high number of calories and sugars. We recommend it to people who are not restricted by a budget and get regular exercise (the latter, because of the high calorie count).

WLT Conclusion:

Shakeology is a quality product, but it is high in calories, does not have the best taste, and is rather expensive. There are better shakes on the market that you can use as a meal replacement.

If I can't find all the ingredients of a product then no way Jose! Been watching these companies since the early 80's & only 2 I've seen with no bad ingredients are Evolv & Xtreme Healthy Lifestyles & everthing they have tastes great & works!

I'd rather fix myself some other protein meal that is quick and on the go, and stick to an LCHF way of eating than to use any meal replacement shakes. They all have too many carbs in them... too much sugar... and it's not appropriate for diabetics. If you have to add fruit and other food, the sugar/carb content goes even higher. The 20g carbs in Shakeology would leave me with only 5g more allowable carbs each day if I want to keep my weight and my blood sugar down. And the price on this kind of stuff? No thank you. Do yourselves a favor and get real food you can eat in a hurry or on the go. The stores even sell ready-made protein packs if you don't want to take the time to throw it together yourselves. Real food is always better.

In your review you mention that Shakeology is a good appetite suppressant, but in the table you have a red X signifying that it is a bad appetite suppressant.

I really don't like the taste of the vanilla. Has a powdery taste that I just can't hide w/ fruit or beverages. I'm very disappointed

I don't like the gritty feel of the Shakeology or the after-taste it gives off. It is too expensive and doesn't really suppress my appetite much. I feel like I have to add fruit or veggies to it to tweak the taste, which only adds calories in the long run and doesn't essentially take away the gritty feel of the powder itself. I have tried 18shake in Chocolate and Vanilla and find it to not only be better tasting, but way less expensive to boot. I get at least a month to 2 months worth of shakes per container so it is much more economical for me in the long run. It is similar to Shakeology in nutrient content and calories, but it surpasses Shakeology in taste, by far. Anyway, that's just my honest and unbiased opinion. I've tried other shakes besides Nature's Bounty and Shakeology and I seem to always come back to Nature's bounty for taste, quality and price.

What have you heard about the meal replacement called "18shake"? I've read lots of testimonials and it sounds really good.

I haven't tried the shakeology even though I have two daughters that are coaches and I can get a discount. I just can't afford it. I started drinking 18Shake, I bought the chocolate cream pie flavor and mix it with unsweetened almond milk...it is creamy and delicious and mixes up great with the blender bottle they give you. Price is 50, a month. So far I enjoy it.

I have ran into so many people that still do the 21 day fix day type diet like I do without a shake and still loose weight without paying the big price. All about proportion and exercise. However, I am looking for a replacement shake and thanks to this page, I am going to try the 18 Shake. This page is very appreciated!!!

I have tried the Shakeology with a beachbody package and paid 140$ per bag. I tried the strawberry flavor and found that there is an aftertaste. The only thing I have found to mix with it that doesn't make it taste so gross is the crystal light packages with water. Even fruit and yogurt cannot mask the taste. Like mentioned earlier, I also found myself feeling even more tired and lethargic and after over a week I narrowed it down to the powder. Once I stopped, I felt fine again even after drinking enough water and exercise. It was too packed with nutrients for my body size so I lessoned the scoop. I would not recommend this for taste and price.

I have tried shakeology, I dont like the taste of the shake I have added things to the shake to make it tastes better its still awful. I also feel that $130.00 is to much to pay for shakeology. I think it was a waste of money.

Ok...so everyone's complaining about the taste, but what about vitamins. etc.? That's what I was wondering about before I make a purchase. That is what I was interested in. Thanks

I bought the chocolate, vanilla, and cafe latte. I mix the shakeology with rice milk, banana and cinamon in blender. I think it taste great this way and ive lost 8 pounds in 5 weeks. Try mixing it with rice milk or almond milk. Shakeology has alot more vitamins than the whole food brands.

Interesting. The Beachbody coaches indicate that you can get the whole 21 day fix with Shakeology for just a few dollars more than the Shakeology. I have several issues - migraines and interstitial cystitis that can flare with some food ingredients so I have been hesitant to order any meal replacement shakes. Thanks to this review, I think I will hold off...

I've tried shakeology, but found reviews in 18 shakes to be better. The taste is better on the 18shakes, the consistency is better, and the price is better, and the calories are lower(which allows me to add more items in my smoothie without having the calories go sky high)

I went to the Shakeology website for the first time (and the last time)! The first ingredient (I only looked at the Chocolate) is non-GMO fructose. That's outrageous and so it the price. I would not tell my friend and her kids who use this product, but it's definitely not the way to go IMO. Sorry, but I'm glad I came HERE and looked at the comparisons/information! THANK YOU!

I have been on Shakeologe for 6 months. I like the results and the strawberry taste the best to me. The price is my problem. I'm on a fix income and 160$ is getting to be to much,when I plan to stay on it for years. If you could help with another product with the same ingredients I would be so great full. Thank,Shery

I have a high sense of taste and smell. To me it tasted like it had some sort of chemical or soap product in it. I tried making it in different containers and added bananas and strawberries and I still could not get that awful taste out of my mouth. I tried the chocolate and vanilla.

I tried it and didn't like it either. I was a coach but felt bad trying to sell anyone a product that I have to add banana's and peanut butter too just to drink something so healthy and natural. The only good thing was the money back guarantee because this was too expensive to not taste good.

I've had MUCH better meal replacement shakes over the years. I only tried this because my daughter in law gave me a bag which is one month's supply. The Strawberry wasn't bad too bad but it left a terrible after taste. It also jacked up my sugar quite a bit and it's WAY too expensive! You can get much better for way cheaper at your local health food stores.

I was happy to see that there was a vanilla shake by Shakeology; however, I found that the aftertaste is horrid and slicing up a banana to add to it doesn't reduce the bad aftertaste.

my friend let me try a sample of this, so I made the chocolate flavored shake. I used skim milk and mixed it up in the blender--or, tried to! But it wouldn't blend. It was still thick and full of lumps after several tries. Once I tasted it, I knew I'd never try it again. It was really gross!

I bought this when the price was $120, and now it costs $160! Definitely expensive. I haven't decided if I'll buy it again. The chocolate flavor tastes good but the price is way high. I give it three stars because it's so expensive.

After 15 years of weight-lifting, I've tried all kinds of shakes and supplements. You name it, I've tried it. But this is absolutely the worst. I added two cups of frozen strawberries and raspberries to improve the taste but it didn't help whatsoever. The texture was chalky and the flavor (tropical strawberry) was terrible. And at $120 for a package of this, there's no way it should taste this bad! Avoid this like the plague!

After trying Shakeology for two weeks, I noticed I felt worse than before. I felt apathetic, tired, and lethargic. It might be a good product but it hasn't helped me at all!

I've tried adding different things to improve the taste, but to no avail. I have to practically pinch my nose when I drink this to get it down. I feel better when I drink it, but it's just psychological, same thing as eating your veggies because you know they're healthy for you.
