Mix it up using their suggestion of orange juice. Or does the diet shake actually work? I started using GNC Lean Shake a year ago and usually have shakes most days for breakfast and lunch along with some fruit or greek yogurt. The cost is a bit much. This will cause you to have more energy, to feel lighter, and lose weight it is common to lose 3 to 5 pounds.
I would say that Shakeology is a great snack, but definitely not a meal. As with all dietary supplements, Shakeology is designed to supplement your healthy diet and not be the only source of nutrition throughout the day. Shakeology is not recommended to replace more than two meals per day. You really have to dig into the website to find the above recommendation about boosting the calories in the shakes up.
I find that a bit misleading. Shakeology contains globally harvested ingredients, such as adaptogens, proteins, prebiotics, and antioxidants that support energy levels, support regularity and digestion, and help curb junk food cravings. All of this is essentially true. So good going, Shakeology. You know how I feel about cleanses! Can we please stop talking about beach bodies? A beach body is a body in a bathing suit. A fat body, a thin body, a pink, green, yellow, or orange body.
Whatever body you have is your beach body. Shakeology has too few calories to be used on its own as a meal replacement, unless you like getting hangry. Whole foods trump processed stuff hands down, every time. This is how much it costs to start on the respective program. We always recommend trying a product before making a large investment.
IdealShape protein blend is used in their bars and shakes is a combination of whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate, which is designed to keep you full. Whey protein can also support lean muscle growth when you add exercise to your diet plan.
They also mention, in a meta-analysis, that there is no real link between Slendesta and the reduction of body weight. Green tea benefits include boosts in energy, antioxidant support and possibly weight loss. The catechins in the green tea are what gives this ingredient its weight loss properties. Raspberry ketones are found in various fruits and berries. Convenience being a benefit is a no-brainer.
As mentioned earlier, green tea extract is shown to cause weight loss and is backed by some pretty positive research. IdealShake has more reviews from customers backing its ability to squash appetite, but Shake is made with natural ingredients and the plant extracts do provide you with a load of nutrition.
Shakeology contains more protein. Shakeology also uses plant-based protein and more natural ingredients than IdealShakes. Go with IdealShakes if you are on a low-sugar and low-carb diet, or want something a bit more affordable. Shakeology is the winner if you want the extra protein and natural ingredients — and if you can afford it.
According to our research, mocha is the least liked flavor our of all of them. Vanilla seems to be a popular, as well as salted caramel, which they just recently brought back. The newest flavors are orange cream and chocolate peanut butter. One of the bigger complaints from customers were on the consistency of the shakes. And much like the typical diet plan, the IdealShape diet consists of meal replacement shakes, bars, and energy drinks that are meant to be consumed throughout the day.
The IdealShape diet is also flexible, encouraging you to add additional ingredients for nutrition and flavor. You can also check out some IdealShape recipes online. Some of the IdealShape recipes found on Pinterest include salted caramel, pecan pie, and pumpkin spice.
You can also create your own recipes by adding bananas, strawberries, blueberries, kale, spinach, and more. The challenge incorporates the IdealShape diet and workouts, lasts a month, and only requires less than half an hour of exercise per day.
Since men and women have different nutritional needs, IdealLean is a diet plan specifically for women. The Ideallean shakes offer almost double the amount of protein than IdealShape, while offering an alternative with no sugar, carbs or fat.
Additionally, the customer reviews on Ideallean are pretty impressive — with the majority of negative comments pointing to gross texture and flavor. IdealShape is a trusted name in the wellness space. The company offers a meal plan, where some see results. While there are benefits, there are also alternatives fitting your weight management needs.
Weight management may take you to IdealShape products or an alternative offering four clinically-tested ingredients shown to work. One of the products we like the most is Burn TS. The formula contains four clinically-tested ingredients — green tea, Meratrim, ChromeMate, and caffeine. Research shows the ingredients help boost energy levels, metabolic rate, and help curb hunger.
Also, the team behind Burn TS is offering a 2-Week Sample as a sign the company has confidence in their supplement. Choosing the right weight-loss system can be confusing and often times frustrating. Let us know a little more about you and your goals.

Choosing the right product is the 1 question asked by DietSpotlight readers. We recommend trying any product before buying it and know that finding a product with a sample offer is near impossible - so we created our own product, Burn TS, with scientifically backed ingredients. There are studies suggesting adding protein to a diet could help with weight-loss, but nothing that points directly at this supplement.
It all depends on what you are looking for. 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. 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. I was so excited to try this famous shakeology.. The flavors are horrible, i tried all but the greenberry but im not going to try it. Do NOT try these unless u wanna die. 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. 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. It was not worth the weight loss and I have been miserable. 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 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: 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. We like to remind customers to try to factor in a healthy diet and at least light exercise for maximum effects.
I love love love this shake, I love the vegan strawberry and have found it to be a great supplement to my diet, more energy and feel better. Shake is ok, but the high price made me reconsider. They have started taking money out of my account without my authorization even though I called and complained to a representative.
Definitely would not recommend doing business with them. 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.
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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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 offer. I have not sampled Evolve. 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, , 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 appears cheaper but it is not when you see the size of the servings. 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 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. I believe taste is individual. What tastes good to one person can taste aweful to another. I will be sticking with shakeology for sure. Hi Cari, thanks for sharing your experience with different Shakeology flavors! 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.
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. Just spent the last 45 minutes waiting for a customer service person, still waiting. This has given me time to review Shake. I believe I will now change to Shake. Sorry Beach Body, poor service just lost you a customer.
