Top 3 Meal Reaplacement Shakes

But, the price is prohibitive. I suggest you try and review the Sun Warrior products. The vegans are good, but need to supplement the flavor. For chocolate, I usually add a tsp of cocoa powder, and for vanilla, I usually add a half to one tsp of vanilla extract. Added with frozen sweet cherries is awesome.

To get the antioxidant part, I add a scoop of organic super green food. Together the cost of both is way cheaper than Shakeology with approximately the same nutrition profile.

Plus, sun warrior lists the amino acid profile and is great for a recovery drink or meal replacement. I find the whole Beachbody empire cultish and off-putting. Nevertheless, I tried shakeology because a friend had lost weight on it and I was looking to jump-start my own weight loss. The shakes are fine. As a quick meal on the go, it was a fine solution. However, after a while of near-daily use I began to develop a lot of stomach discomfort, gas, and cramping.

After experimenting with different possible sources, I identified the culprit as the stevia in the shake. I hope they actually follow through on that.

But be sure you have a strong stomach. I have been drinking chocolate shakeology for a month and love it. The only problem is it is expensive. I have tried to research other products that are cheaper with the same benefit. I am so confused. Anyone have any advice or know any alternatives. I would greatly appreciate it. Shakeology is the best thing I put in my body everyday.

I love the chocolate but all the flavors are good. I am a Nutritionist and I recommend it to all of my clients. I use it as an after workout supplement because I have achieved my goal weight with Shakeology and P90X. I did not like the taste and with that much sugar and not so great ingredients, I have chosen to go with another protein shake of higher standards and quality. I do not recommend spending your money for this! I keep sending shake mix back. How do you stop this??? I have been using Shakeology for almost 4 years now.

I have been able to keep my weight off for over 2 years now. My favorite is the chocolate, and my least favorite is Vanilla. I mix them with different fruits and nut butter to change the flavors. You have to talk to a real person in order to cancel the subscription, you cannot do it through the automated service.

I have not tried any other shake as good as Shakeology. I love their fitness programs, is the only company that combines fitness and nutrition as its best. Yes, I am a coach. When you order it, at the bottom in the small print it says that you have signed up for the auto shipment and at the end of the 30 days you will be charged again. I have called to cancell but they keep charging my credit card and sending me product that I no longer want.

I would give shakeology less than 1 star. I actually ended up cancelling my creditcard. Then the auto pay and shipment stopped. The thing that you had to do was tell them to cancel home direct. As beach body coach none of my customers have ever had a problem for anything.

I m here to help them in anything they need. These shakes taste horrible! They taste like chemicals. The first few days that I used Shakology it worked as advertised, kept me full was a good breakfast replacement. However after about the first week I noticed that I was hungry after only an hour.

Not all it was advertised to be. It also has the aftertaste of artificial sweetener. You have to eat clean o when drinking these shakes.

They work fantastic for me. Ive been drinking them for a few months and doing a workout with them and have noticed a HUGE difference with the shakes.

Eating right and exercising are an important part of a healthy lifestyle! 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. Thiamin also known as Vitamin B. Biotin aids in healthy nails, skin, hair, and protein synthesis Phosphorus supports bone health. Magnesium supports muscle and bones. Copper supports blood and nerve health and increases energy. Vitamin C supports immune system, healthy blood teeth, gums and muscles. Iron supports blood and nerve health, and reduces tiredness and fatigue.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Riboflavin helps reduce tiredness and fatigue, and metabolizes fats, carbohydrates and protein. Vitamin B6 helps to break down the protein we consume Vitamin B12 helps make red blood cells and hemoglobin Pantothenic Acid synthesizes nutrients from food energy hormone creation.

Zinc aids in immune system support. Chloride is essential for digestive health and body fluid balance. Slendesta Potato Protein is key the ingredient in IdealShake that helps you curb cravings! How does it work? Slendesta is derived from a potato protein extract called Proteinase inhibitor or PI2. Found just beneath the potato's skin, this extract stimulates an increased bodily release of cholecystokinin or CCK.

It can also prevent blood sugar spikes by slowing the release of sugar into the blood, thus promoting a slow and steady rise in blood sugar. Fiber acts similarly to protein in this respect. Meal replacement shakes are portion controlled and therefore may be a very important tool for diabetics who aim to lose weight. Energy balance is also a key factor in weight loss.

The average meal replacement shake provides around calories of energy; it is not considered a low-calorie food item unless it is used as it should be, as a meal replacement. If the energy provided in one shake is not enough to sustain you, consume something solid, like fruits and vegetables, to promote satiety. However, in the case of hypoglycemia -- abnormally low blood sugar -- meal replacement shakes with an appropriate amount of carbohydrate are easily absorbed and can help normalize blood sugar levels.

Although the Glucerna brand of meal replacement shakes was developed specifically for diabetics, it may or may not be the right choice for you.
