Shakeology vs. Meal Replacement drink--which is better?
I've completed 4 weeks of Turbo Fire and I've drastically changed my eating habits. I don't have a lot of weight to lose, only about 10 vanity pounds. I have really increased my protein intake (I try to get at least 50 grams of protein a day). Right now, I'm drinking a generic whey protein powder (with almond milk and 1/2 a banana) after my workout in the morning and many times it counts as my breakfast. The problem I see with using this generic protein powder as a meal replacement is that there aren't many other nutrients in it, and I think I need more nutrients if I'm going to use it as a meal replacement.

So I was looking at the various product BeachBody has to offer. Of course there's Shakeology, which is heavily promoted. I'm concerned about the high price. Also I've read numerous online reviews and some people swear by it and others seem to have a lot of bathroom problems. BeachBody also has a meal replacement shake, which is way cheaper than Shakeology. Does anybody out there have an opinion on either product? What are the main differences (besides price) between Shakeology and the Meal Replacement shakes?

Shakeology is a little pricey.... I was more than concerned about that before I started. But to make it cost effective for me I make a breakfast shake using 1/2 scoop and then make a lunch shake using 1/2 scoop so I am getting two meals covered for 3.50 a day. Shakeology is awesome! Gives you crazy awesome energy, regulates your blood sugar levels, lowers your cholesterol, promotes digestion. It will make you regular, that is for sure but that is a good thing! This is the healthiest thing you will put in your body.. hands down! It helps reduce cravings... keeps me from being hungry. I just can't say enough good things about shakeology. It is well worth the price and then some. Very easy to come up with 3.50 a day to cover the price....

Well, at regular retail price the daily cost of Shakeology is $4. Bathroom issues are from shakeology cleansing your body and getting rid of the build up crud in your body, and can be normal, I never experienced any of that....in fact as a person who does not have a gallbladder and has lived with frequent bathroom issues for 8 years, I am happy to say I am now a regular gal again since taking shakeology! For that alone, I will never stop drinking shakeology. It's my multi-vitamin, my supplements, I'm now also off the 5 pills a day I took for my diabetes, and my drink to good health, IMO it's worth every penny, and if it was double the price I'd still pay it (lol, don't raise the price, Carl)!

Ask your coach for a sample of chocolate and greenberry, if you wish to try before you buy!
