I've shared my story here. You can find them here. There are a lot of things on your page that I read and use. However, I think that the alternatives to Shakeology are misleading. Thanks for your kind words. Although more ingredients does not mean that is more effective or healthy. This is based on my opinions and experience. In my opinion these are high quality products, but I understand that we all have different opinions. Have a great day. Hope you like it. Protein Shakes recipes are coming, meanwhile I have published 2 articles regarding protein powder supplements.
Hi Michelle, Thanks for your comment. We all have different goals and different lifestyles which results in different protein needs. Hope you find it useful. Hi Tamar, Shakeology alternative recipes are coming in the next days. Hi Jenn, Thanks for your comment. Looking forward to seeing the recipes. I have a soy allergy so fining a good protein powder that tastes good is a little difficult. Thanks for the info! Thank you so much for all this amazing information, it has been so helpful and I feel prepared with the tools necessary.
I loved the pages that you posted on protein options. After you post recipes for shakes, maybe put them under: Days to fitness menu on the right under this page? Thanks for your kind words and for the suggestion. A new guide will be published next week, a new protein shake approach that you can easily do at home.
Thanks for your patience. Allow me some more days, and next week the new guide will be ready and published. My question is about protein powder…. I have some at home and would love to be able to use it.

My advice would say to start without the shake and then replace a meal with a protein shake check the meal replacement matrix to create a complete shake and then see how it goes for you.
Hope I have helped. I have read that Lean Body has a very similiar taste and ingredients. At Protein Shake Recipes you can find some examples. Are you allowed a container of each food type at each meal or are the filled containers the food you get for the day.. After you calculate your calorie target you know how many containers of each color you should have in one day.
You can see my Calendar Meal Planner for my target calorie on this article under the section Calendar for Calorie Target without Shakeology. Phoebes, thanks for your insight on the protein powders on the market. Good question, that information was missing. Just received by Extreme package. I, however, was hoping for more detailed meal planning. Can someone help me with a sample daily plan for calories. I have no allergies or diet restrictions, so anything goes. Not a real fan of coconut.
Is that equal to one scoop? And does the honey count? Can Agave be substituted? Thank you very much. I ordered the visalus sweet cream mix, when I make this do I use 2 scoops as directed on the package when mixing with water or 1 scoop? Although if you add 1 cup of fruit consider adding half a purple container. You said red in another answer above but here you say purple.
Just want to clarify that 2 scoops of Visalus would be 1 red and then a serving of fruit would add a purple. So I have isagenix shakes which are calories for one shake. Should I just have 1 shake as a snack and call it 1 red container. Or as a meal replacement? Am i blind or do you not have other ones. If you do can you tell me where they are.
All the meal replacement shakes are 1 red container, because of the protein levels of this shakes. Now if you had some fruit or veggies, use the color containers to know how much of purple and green containers you have used before adding the ingredients to the blender.
Thank you so much for this info. I bought some shaklee protein drink powder and wonder how it stacks up with the ones you recommend? Have you tried the chocolate Raw Meal? I assume it should be equivalent to the vanilla but just chocolate flavored? Have you tried Nutrition shakes as an alternative? What is the difference between the 3 meal replacement powders listed under shakeology alternative and the 3 meal replacement options in the article on choosing meal replacement for weight loss?
If I want to make healthy meal replacement shakes which product should I be considering? Hi Carolyn, Thanks for your comment. The reason is because those articles have been published on different times. So Shakeology Alternatives was published when I was looking something to cut the costs of Shakeology, while Best Meal Replacement Shakes for Weight loss was published after when I decided to start a plan to lose weight with meal replacement shakes.
All of them are, in my opinion and experience, the best options, to lose weight, you have today on the market without paying a fortune. Labrada Nutrition is more directed to those who want to build muscle. Thank you for responding. I prefer sweeter powders so I will try the ViSalus creamy vanilla since u said its like cake batter. Hopefully, that will help my sweet tooth along with the weight benefits. Thanks for your message. If you feel like sharing your feedback, let me know what you think about ViSalus.
I love the Shakeology shake in my vitamix. But would love to have it as an Is there a way to make it beforehand and still have it be good at work? I really like your site! Thank you for your recommendations! Have a nice day. I just orderedthe Vi-salus because of your recommendations. Funny that I was just talking to my husband about how much I like Shakeology but it was too expensive and I wish there was an alternative.
Your article was on time. Hi have you heard or tried Shake. Can you do a review? I appreciate your reviews and recommendations above. I need a product without Soy at all, if a sweetner is added, using Stevia, a low sugar content and a low Carbohydrate content. 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? Really loved this when it was sent to me in T its just way too expensive to keep up with the re-order.
The chocolate is the best flavor, and when mixed with ice it tastes like a milkshake. But there are 2 serious draw bags. 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!! It is not just a weight loss shake and that is what makes it different than anything out there!!
There are several flavors of Shakeology without ANY fructose. Get your facts straight before you publish them for public review. You are correct in that there are a couple flavors without this ingredient, ie. 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: 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.
I did for me what they advertised: Or just the ice and water. 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. If eating deep fried, junk, and non portion foods is the lifestyle that you are used to, then this may work for you.
I have read reviews and was optimistic. 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.
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. Awful taste took getting used to. 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.
Going to try the other flavors and try to convince my children to start drinking it my son hates veggies. I have been using shakeology for the last 11 months.. I was going to start back Dec. Idid enjoy the shakes. But Will try others to make a final decision. My diet is important to me and my goals, saving is hard on a barista salary: 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. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Individual results may vary. Healthy weight loss is approx. Check with your physician before beginning a supplement program.

Shakeology Meal Replacement Shake Shakeology is well-known and popular choice for a meal replacement shake. Price This well-known product may be popular, but it is expensive. What is Fructose and why is it in Shakeology? 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. Top rated Brand Comparison. Did you find this review helpful? Will see how it works but so far not to impressed Did you find this review helpful? 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. We did note that fructose is included in Shakeology's recipe and we're just as concerned about that as you are! 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: Hey Tom, glad to hear that your lifestyle has improved with the help of Shakeology! Wow, it's great to hear all of the health benefits you're getting from drinking Shakeology!
I'll mix the strawberry shake with banana and water for a strawberry banana. We add some spinach or kale and ice: Yum I think I will go have one now: 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?
Your "x" rather than a check for Shakeology fiber indicating less than 5 grams per serving is inaccurate. Definitely gets me started and makes me feel full and full of energy. I have already noticed a difference in energy, and I've lost 5 lbs in 6 days. 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 don't think you can rate something on taste. It's true that everyone has different taste but we appreciate knowing what each person prefers. Glad to hear that your cravings have gone away as you've been drinking this shake.
If I drink the shake in the morning, I don't need coffee, it seems to give me the same energy as caffeine. Can't tell you how many people I have talked to that have turned around their digestive problems after starting Shakeology. 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.
Oh, and regarding some of the comments below about customer service NO aftertaste, no artificial ingredients 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. I ordered several months' worth of the chocolate shake and I did find that it filled me up until lunch.
And I think it does taste better than many others I've tried Vega and other brands available at Whole Foods. There's no way around it so I called to cancel today. Don't order this product! I have called and they are still taking money out of my credit card for product that I don't want anymore!
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. I"ve had a very good experience with the customer service when I need to return a product because I have too much. If I didn't like the flavor they had nicely send me another one at no cost to me.
