I tried many different types of vegan protein shakes on market. This is the only one I can drink everyday. I mean most of others made me gag. I tried so hard to like cheaper ones because they are easy on budget, but I had to hold my breath to swallow shake and shake my head before I open my mouth again to hold it down. I don't work for them, so I am not saying this because I am not affiliated with them at all. Funny thing is that when I leave the used shaker bottle for a while, the bottle smells just like any other vegan shake, but when it is freshly made, I only smell delicious chocolate if it is vegan chocolate flavor and tropical fruit if it is tropical strawberry flavor. Also, I first started doing Beachbody exercise programs without Shakeology because I couldn't afford it. Then after I figured the program works very well, I ordered the sample shake pack. They are all good vegan or not, but I liked vegan better because they are a little bit thinner and lighter and easier to drink. I definitely recommend if you can afford it. As far as the food craving is concerned, I am not sure if it is working because I still like and have junk food, but in less quantity.

It is very expensive. I was not that thrilled with the taste, even though I tried several flavors; I was also concerned that unless you stayed on the program that the weight lost would come back unless the unhealthy eating habits (and/or other source) that caused the weight gain in the first place were changed (which is not part of the "program"). So while some people are reporting good short term results, I see it as just another fad diet... it may work for some but a good long term result is going to take more work than just drinking shakes for meals; if you are aware of that and willing to do the extra work on your own, it may be a convenient adjunct method; it just was not right for me and I know many others that were disappointed (but I think that was mostly because they were looking for a "magic" bullet). If you go in with your eyes open an a long term plan you may be one of the successful ones; good luck.

    Love this product - but it is pretty costly!

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    I decided to give the 21-day fix with Shakeology a whirl as I have quite a bit of weight to lose. After reading some reviews, I was nervous to fork out the money for the Shakeology since a lot of people didn't like it! Well, I ordered the chocolate Shakeology (because who doesn't like chocolate) and I absolutely LOVED it! It may take a few times of making it to find a variation/recipe that you like, but give it a try!

    The product also comes with some Shakeology "recipes" that you can try. Find one that sounds good and try it! I personally liked mine with 1 cup of skim milk and 1 teaspoon of natural peanut butter. Blend in some crushed ice and it's almost like a creamy peanut butter chocolate shake!

    I will be disappointed when my product is finished. The product is very costly and in my honest opinion, not required to be successful on the 21-day diet (or any diet that you choose).

    If you do plan to order it, I would suggest ordering it in the bag. You will get 30 servings vs only 24 in the packets. The packets are nice as you can buy them in a multi-pack of flavors, but you don't get as many servings.

    Overall, I recommend the shakeology if you can find it at a reasonable price. But if you can't afford it, don't feel that you can't be successful in your weight loss journey because you don't have it...exercise and eat right daily!

    Worth every penny

    By 

    from Pittsburgh, PA USA

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    I first tried Shakeology when a friend talked about it and told me about a sample pack you could try out. I liked the sample pack, but it was hard to tell if all the benefits were actually true or not. My husband and I have been having shakes for breakfast every morning, so I figured I would purhase the monthly supply and put it to the test. All of the information talks about how many nutrients are in the powder, how good it is for you, how it supplies your body with exactly what you need. I thought, yeah right. Its just another gimic, but hey, I like the taste of the powder so at least there is that. I have to say that within three or four days of using Shakeology, I noticed a HUGE difference. I used to guzzle diet pepsi. Two to three of them a day (sometimes more). When I didn't have it, I craved it like crazy. Now I don't even like the taste anymore! When I drink anything with artificial sweeteners, my body is like "blah, what is that?!" I never thought it would be this easy to kick my diet pepsi habit!
    The second side effect is my increased energy level. I noticed this about a week into drinking the shakes. I've always been a busy person, but I feel wiped by the end of the day. I still get tired, but I am more energized to charge through and keep moving. I also have more motivation to get moving during the day because of the increased energy level. TMI, but interesting, It also helped me to be more regular.
    If you are looking for a great product that will make you feel more energized and alive, this is it.

    chocolate and vanilla are good!

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    I was given envelopes of a few different flavors from a friend so I could determine which I liked best. The greenberry was totally gross for me, and I don't usually mind "green" smoothies, so that was a disappointment. I did manage to finish the whole thing, only because I didn't want to waste it, knowing they are rather costly. I definitely won't order that flavor. The tropical fruit one tasted somewhat like banana bread, oddly enough, and although it wasn't as bad as the greenberry, I was disappointed. I figured it would be a strawberry/banana tropical fruit medly which I typically enjoy quite a bit as a flavor in other things. Another one I won't order. The chocolate was quite good and I didn't mind it at all and will definitely be ordering that one. The vanilla was also quite good and I'll be ordering that as well. Either one would be fine made alone, with almond milk, with fruit thrown in, or other additions that might appeal. I've ordered both flavors.

    Best stuff on earth!

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    Yes, I am a coach for the brand, however I became a coach because this product and company has changed my life- not the other way around. Shakeology is real food. Not chemicals and fillers to sell you and make money. Vanilla and Chocolate are my favorite. The tropical is tasty however I am allergic to strawberries. Greenberry is not my favorite, however many of my friends say it is their favorite; it has a wheat grass taste and pairs well with fruit. This nutritional supplement has helped me with my IBS and gluten intolerance, along with staying away from junk foods and having the energy to work out and lose 40 lbs!

    Makes me Feel Great!

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    I started drinking Shakeology when my husband joined Beachbody about a year ago. I tried the chocolate first and didn't care for it very much since it tasted funny to me. If I'm going to eat chocolate I want it to taste like chocolate! The strawberry flavor is okay. The vanilla is my favorite. The texture takes a little getting used to since it does have "floaties" in it. I can definitely tell a difference on the days where I have a shake in the morning and when I don't. I have more energy and I feel full longer than with my regular breakfast. The only big downside is that it is super pricey. It's hard to spend a hundred bucks on one bag of mix that only typically lasts a month. I know trainers say that the cost is made up because it replaces meals and makes you feel better, but I still buy food for my kids so it's hard to spend money on both. Overall I think it is a great product that tastes decent and makes me feel great, if only they could figure out a way to make it cheaper!

    These make a nice meal replacement on occasion.

    By 

    from West Virginia

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    Like many shakes, I only use these a couple times a week as meal replacements. Many people use these twice a day or for all three meals a day as a replacement for actual food.

    I find that I prefer them as an occasional meal replacement. Food bars get old after a while and it's nice to enjoy a shake.

    The Shakeology shakes have a lot of vitamins, minerals, and proteins in them and a huge selection of flavors to choose from so I'm not just stuck in the usual vanilla, strawberry, or chocolate slump of other shakes.

    These have to be blended up and mixed in a blender. They're slightly less convenient than other shakes because you have to take the extra time to make your own shakes but it's worth it for me because I like to add a few things here and there.

    These are nice because you can mix them with water, milk, soymilk, or even tea if you like for added nutrition and flavor.

    I use these for a single meal replacement occasionally because sometimes I don't want to actually sit down and eat a grapefruit and boiled eggs. These are quicker, easier, and softer on my stomach. They offer a lot of vitamins and the taste of most of the shakes is actually quite good. These don't leave a chalky, thick taste in my mouth like many shakes do.

    Expensive but woth the cost

    By 

    from Texas

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    I recently started drinking Shakeology. I got the box that has individual packages in strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. I'm not usually a huge chocolate fan but I ABSOLUTELY love the chocolate flavor Shakeology. It tastes so rich and creamy. Even my husband said he liked the flavor when I asked him to try it. It's easy to blend in the morning and drink. I usually add water, ice, milk and a banana too mine. One of my favorite things about Shakeology is it's such a great nutritionally dense shake. The shake really fills me up and I can honestly say since I started drinking it I feel much better and have more energy. I'm looking forward to seeing if i get weight loss results after drinking Shakeology. I just started drinking it recently so I'm not sure if I've lost any weight yet. I love Beachbody products and use their workout programs. I'm excited to add Shakeology to my fitness journey. I would recommend this product even though it's a little expensive because I feel it's worth the price you pay.

    Best Nutritional Shake on the Market

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Shakeology Nutritional Shake:

    First I must say that I am an independent beachbody coach but the reason I became one was because of Shakeology. I was turned on to Shakeology as a way to get my nutritional needs in an easy form since I have a very busy lifestyle. First off I love the chocolate flavor it helps kill my sweet tooth and tastes great even in water. I also like vanilla and strawberry but dislike the greenberry. I have more energy when drinking the shakes and use it as a meal replacement so the cost is reasonable for them. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a healthy and fast alternative. All the flavors taste great in water but for special treats I like to add in some almond milk and frozen bananas. When you receive your back you get a list of different combinations to try with the shakes or you can pretty much add anything you would like. Trying it for the first time is risk free since they have a bottom of the bag guarantee and will refund your money if not satisfied after you have used all of it.
