My Beachbody Shakeology Review

When I ordered P90, they gave a few things I could add to my order for free. One of those things was a 7 day supply of Shakeology. I've heard a lot of great things about Shakeology from people who drink it. Some people even live by it and the benefits from it. According to Beachbody, Shakeology will help you lose weight, gain energy, reduce cravings, and help with digestion. It also claims that the nutrients you get out of one serving is more than you would be able to eat in one sitting. So I said sure why not give it a try.

On the directions it says to add 2 scoops into 8-10 ounces of water and add ice for you desired consistency. A card came with it with recipes to try different smoothies combinations. It also suggested to replace either breakfast or lunch everyday with a smoothie.

Ok so here is what I did with it:

I never tried any of the recipes mainly because I wanted to try it by itself. I wanted to compare it to other protein smoothies I have made before. I never replaced my breakfasts or lunches with it. Dinner time is the busiest time for me so making a shake instead of a meal worked out better for me. I also never added ice for two reasons, the first is I don't use ice trays or have an ice maker lol. My fridge keeps my water cold enough for me. And second I wanted to compare it to other drinks I've had like I said previously.

The first time I tried it I used my blender bottle to shake it up. I found the consistency to be more watery which was fine. However, I noticed it has a lot of granules (small pieces) in it. The next day and for most of the days I put it in the blender (I use a Ninja). The consistency was thicker but there were still granules in it. Blending it did remove more of them. The taste was great. It taste just like chocolate! It did fill me up and keep me satisfied. I didn't lose weight faster than I usually do but that didn't matter. I liked it and thought it is a great option for meal replacement smoothies.

Now will I now subscribe and start buying Shakeology???? The answer is no and that's for a variety of reasons. The biggest reason is the price. It is $129.95 for one month of servings per flavor. That is extreme to me and I definitely cannot afford that. The next reason is because I do not drink smoothies or protein drinks every day. I drink protein drinks when I am too busy to have a sit down meal which is very few and far between. I love to eat, I have to chew some food lol.

I think Shakeology is for someone who is new to eating healthy or someone who wants to get back on track. All in all it is a great product to buy if you have the money to do so. I enjoyed my sample!

Have you tried Shakeology before?? If so, how did you like or not like it?


  1. I only do the vanilla Shakeology. I'm not a huge fan of chocolate (crazy i know lol) and with the vanilla I mix in fruit- mangoes, strawberries, bananas etc. It is grainy! Since I only blend it, it's not so bad. The price is pretty expensive, I became a coach for that reason. if you coach with them you get a 25% discount on all the products. Since I want to do PiYo and the 21 Day Fix and some other programs that was a good option! Keep up the good work on your journey.I just recently restarted mine.

    1. Thank you and good luck on starting back up on your journey :)
