My personal experience with Shakeology:
When I first saw Shakeology advertised on the Team Beachbody web page I saw the price of $4 per serving and was admittedly a little taken back by the price. The more that I looked into it, it actually made sense. I was already buying vitamins each month, buying whey protein powder, and would also take digestive supplements. I hated the digestive supplements, but took them because they were good for me and I needed them. After becoming a coach and having a 25% discount I ordered my first shipment on HD (home direct).
When I got my first order I opened the box took out the bag and got some fat-free milk and ice to blend it with the chocolate powder. I was surprised. In the past I had tried health shakes and meal replacements and had the “It tastes good for a health shake” reaction. Not with Shakeology. This shake was actually very good. As I began to try the different recipes from the insert that came in the box, I soon looked forward to having it every day.
After using Shakeology® as a daily part of my diet, I began to feel better, have more energy, and really noticed an improvement with digestion. I won’t go into detail on that, just believe me, it works. About a month prior to taking Shakeology® I was about to purchase life insurance. In purchasing insurance they have you take a physical exam to see what kind of health you are in. Prior to taking the exam the insurance agent told me, “I’ll be honest with you. Your weight might be a little bit of an issue.” About six weeks later I went ahead and purchased the insurance and was set up for the exam. By the time I took the exam I had lost about 30 pounds at that point with P90X® and Shakeology®. My insurance agent called me soon after exclaiming, “Good news! Your weight is fine and you scored as high as you can get with the blood tests.” I attribute my weight loss and improved health to Shakeology® and P90X®. I don’t think I would have produced the same transformation in such a short amount of time without the two together.
Is 3 or 4 bucks a serving worth it? For me it’s a no-brainer. A lot of people spend that much on coffee drinks, energy drinks, liquor, cigarettes, and fast food everyday as a part of the “normal” daily routine. People spend $4 (or more) on things that will cause cancer, shorten their life span, or deteriorates their health and are fine with it. I choose to spend $3 a day (coach price) on something that improves my health.
Shakeology® is one of the higher-priced shakes on the market, but it is also the best in my opinion. When you break down the ingredients, benefits, and taste, nothing else compares. That is why I drink it daily.
