Let me be the first one to say, I used to be that girl that said, “$4 for a simple protein shake, that’s crazy!” Until I tried Shakeology for the first time. There is probably only one protein/meal replacement that I have had that tastes better than this, which is Ideal Fit and I had tried a lot of brands. Shakeology is designed to get you the nutrients you need to get you through the morning while still tasting good.

I also want to say, this is not a meal replacement if you are a high intensity, endurance athlete. If you are a runner, this would be a great snack for after running and sitting down to stretch and then shower before having a proper breakfast. Most coaches will tell you that they are not drinking the shakes as full meals. Instead, they are drinking them as part of the 21-day fix. On the program, you are free to divide your “containers” up as you please throughout the day.
21 Day Fix
This program is designed for you to start eating the number of calories, nutrients, and vitamins you are supposed to get in a given day. I really do enjoy this program because I like eating by color.
Shakeology counts as one protein throughout the day on the program.
If you are doing say the 21-Day Fix workout program alone from Beachbody On Demand, you may be able to count your Shakeology as a meal in itself. I am currently half marathon. On top of that, I am doing the 21-Day Fix so it doesn’t work for that purpose for me but everyone is different.
What Shakeology has done for me is allowed me to cut out coffee with sugar and flavored creamer. I went from drinking 3 cups a day to just one because I like the taste of coffee. Now, I just take it black or with almond milk and a scoop of BCAAs.
It has also curbed my sweet tooth so I am eating less sugary snacks in the evening.
So what makes Shakeology worth the price?
I have always been the person who goes to Starbucks, orders my $5 drink and enjoys it. But 2 hours later I am hungry despite slurping down a 500+ calorie drink. So if I am willing to pay that, why shouldn’t I be willing to fuel my body instead? That is exactly the justification I make when subscribing to Shakeology.
