After the Shakeology review I published 3 weeks ago, several of our readers reached out to give their opinion on the meal replacement. They agreed to publish their view here. There really is a hate-love relationship with this product. Just check out some the independent reviews where 73 out of 102 people gave NEGATIVE rating!
For starters, I was not sure if I was going to like this product. I was a little hesitant, but I decided to give it a shot. I am glad that I did!
Yes, you will lose a significant amount of weight if you drink this product and stick to a healthy diet. You have to walk away from things like sodas, sweets, fried foods, and breads. You will lose weight if you stay disciplined and drink the shake daily. You will lose weight faster if you exercise several times during the week.
It’s not a wonder shake that provides overnight results, but it will give you the extra edge your body needs to get through a tough day of work. You will also need that edge to deal with the kids when you get home.
I look forward to drinking the shake every day. It tastes good and it helps me get off to a great start.
You may be on the fence, but I urge you to give it a try. You may have seen some negative reviews, but those people probably did not give the product enough time to work. You will not see positive results if you drink the product and lay on the couch all day. You must exercise!
Because of this product, I have lost close to 110 lbs.
Okay, I will not dispute that Shakeology doesn’t have good nutrition. It does, but this stuff is pretty expensive. I really did not like the after taste. I now use another product that was recommended to me by a close friend. I checked out the labels of both products. I carefully looked at the nutrition, vitamin, sugars, protein, and etc. on the label of Shakeology. The new product I am using holds it weight when compared to Shakeology. It has similar ingredients and it is more affordable.
I must stress that people need to get away from hyped-up advertising and conduct their own research. Look for credible reviews that are not biased. In some cases, companies pay people to say positive things about their products. I am shocked at how many people are deceived by BeachBody’s advertising and coaching. They have many people believing that this product is some type of “super food”. Well, it’s not!
I think it may have some ingredients that are not good for your body. It’s probably one of the best meal replacement shakes on the market, but it is priced high. How many people can afford to buy a one-month supply for $120? This is ridiculous!
Here’s my take. I’ve been drinking chocolate Shakeology for three weeks, and I am ecstatic. It is expensive, but you should be able afford it if you are a fast food junky.
My first impression of Shakeology…well, it’s pretty odd. Our taste buds are accustomed to processed and sugary stuff. Shakeology is the opposite! I bought an inexpensive blender from the department store in my area. It does a great job at blending the shake. It is also easy to clean. I make two shakes each morning without dealing with the difficulty that comes with cleaning larger blenders. A small blender will do a great job at making a delicious shake. It will also help you save precious time when you are trying to get ready for work in the morning.
I normally drink the same shake each day. It consists of chocolate Shakeology, ice, water, and peanut butter. I wish I could afford to make more drinks during the day. These shakes will lower your appetite and craving for sugar. It will take some time for your body to adjust, but you will persevere. The shake in the morning helps me get to lunch. I never have a feeling where I am ready to take on a food buffet.
Beachbody also provides the famous T25 home DVD workout. I have never been a fan of DVD workouts, but I decided to give this one a try. It will stimulate your entire body. I really enjoyed it. Each session is only 25 minutes, and the countdown timer is shown throughout the session. The countdown timer really makes you work extremely hard.
Shakeology will help you if you exercise daily. I love coffee, but I now drink Shakeology during my coffee breaks. Shakeology gives me the energy I need to have a productive day. Coffee has never done this for me.
The cool thing about Shakeology powder is that it comes with easy shake recipes. Most of the recipes require two to three simple ingredients. I enjoy adding fresh strawberries to my chocolate and peanut butter shake. On some occasions, I add vanilla extract. I plan on mixing half a scoop with my Fage Greek Yogurt tonight. It should turn out well.
If you are interested in trying Shakeology, get the month supply. You will not be disappointed. You can supplement a meal with it, sit back, and complain. This will not help you get positive results. You must change your diet, drink the shake daily, and get on an exercise regimen. Please stay away from sweets. They will hinder your progress.
I cannot calculate the long-term cost, but I am determined to stick with this product. I have a solid budget that helps me spend my money well. I know that good health is priceless. This is the main reason why I don’t have a problem with making sacrifices. In the end, it will pay big dividends. I hope you give it a try. Good luck!
