Another good protein shake beside Shakeology?
shakeology protein shake
7/19/12 5:09 AM
Hi-
Personally, I feel the price of the Shakeology powder is pretty darn high for a one month supply. Am I being ridiculous? <_<

Can someone please recommend another protein shake that might be just as good/beneficial as Shakeology but a bit lower on the price front?

Thanks!!!!!!!!!

Hey there,
I know I'll probably get blasted for this like I have been but there are definately other alternatives! I thought the price was insane as well, and GNC can be pretty pricey as well but it depends on your budget. I have just been using the body fortress stuff from walmart, 26 g protein, 7 g of carb, and 1g of in one scoop, I combine that with almond milk, a banana, and a little bit of peanut butter. I hate to say it for a guy but I'm on day 24 and went from 145 now I'm 132 so the coaches can blast me all they want! lol good luck and keep pushing on!

Shakeology is not just a protein shake. It is looaded with antioxidants and super foods. If you ask me, at less than $4 a day it is the best value you will find in any shake. But, if you're willing to settle for less then have at it. I value myself enough to pay more for added benefits my body will get by drinking shakeology.

I respectfully disagree, exercise is only half of it. Nutrition is equally if not more important than exercise, if nothing else I've learned that since becoming a coach.

lol Thats fine man, I ain't trying to argue or anything and yes nutrition is more than exercise (common sense), what I am saying is you don't need shakeology to have good results

You're right, you don't have to have shakeology to get results. I just think it makes sense to simplify your nutrition if you can and Shakeology does that. I found a couple of small things I was willing to give up to offset the cost because it isn't cheap. Everybody has to decide for themselves.

I had amazing results without [link cut]. But that is only because I ate right, and even when I had a 'treat' I kept within my calorie requirements. I drink gainer, because it heals my muscle better. But who can deny that [link cut] is awesome!

If only shakeology was under $60 I would buy it and add it to my supplement regimen. Shakeology is a superfood shake, not just a protein shake to help your body be more efficient.

Anyways... About the protein shakes. Walmart protein is fine. I just recently bought Pro Mass PM-1250 which is a gainer but it has 4-5:1 carbs to protein at about 60 servings... It's a lot cheaper than Results and recovery and uses better proteins and carbs also. It's about $46 for 60 servings.

I can't post links here but If you buddy me and message me, I can tell you how to get it.

There are some people who would be able to intelligently argue that nutrition is a much bigger part of the equation. In fact, as a Certified Senior Fitness advisor working with military personnel, I have seen this to be true first hand. It is often difficult for the younger men to recognize the balance the body goes through more effortlessly in youth, but requires more finesse in later years.... and training can have a negative as well as positive impact, depending on the QUALITY of nutrition and other factors.

Blasting you, not at all... you have a definite spirit to help others, and your passion for fitness is admirable! Don't quit!!

Some of the ingredients in Shakeolgy are so expensive that to assemble all of them would cost most people much more than they could afford... so from that perspective it is considered a very good value both from a convenience perspective as well as price.

Greg Franklin, I would have to agree with Jatormala there are other Protein/Meal Replacements that are more affordable and just as Nutritious. Shakeology is pretty Dang expensive! And if BeachBody want to help end Obesity, then they need to cut the Prices so that the more Poorer working class that are the ones who are Obese can afford it!

Soooooo to the orginal Poster I got Total Lean from GNC, It is just as nutritious and tastes about the same as Shakologly. You can still add your favorite fruits and ice in the blender for even more nutrition just like Shakology.

GNC has a deal where you can buy one cansiter of Total lean (any flavor) and get the second one 50% off. There is two sizes one cost $42.99 and one that is $32.99. I brought two for a total of %49.97 that is 1/2 the cost of Shakelogy! I'm going to stick with Total lean.

Good Luck to the Orginal Poster!

I drink Shakeology as a meal replacement. I find it invaluable as a healthy alternative once a day. If you look at is as a "shake" then it is pricey. But truthfully it's also a vitamin replacement (I compared to my Centrum's and stopped taking them as it would be vitamin overkill) and a snack mixed on it's own.

But that being said, I also use as a regular protein snack GNC's Total Lean Shake (chocolate). Tastes really good, low sugar, good protein, etc. This could be blended with ice and fdruits etc to make a meal replacement if you choose to. I use the ready to drink kind, but the powder is also available.

I use Athletes Food By Neutrabolics which is a shake exactly like shakeology. An actual better alternative is to get Vibrant Health Green Vibrance and mix that into a protein shake for a meal replacement every day. At the most you'll be spending about 2 dollars a day if you went with 50g of protein with a tablespoon of this stuff.

Athletes Food gets a bit more expensive, but still less expensive than Shakeology. You just have to look around.

There is one website where you can buy any supplement you want at competitive prices and for the best ingredients, and that's where you can find these two. You can do a google search to find both these products.

Finally received my RAW meal replacement and am on day 2. I blend it with blackberries and a banana with ice in the morning and take it to work for lunch. The texture is a little odd but I don't mind it. It's definitely filling. Hope it helps.

I think that Shakeology taste ok, but I have only had the original chocolate and strawberry. I hear from several the new chocolate isn't very good. And face it, if you want to be consistent, it will have to taste good!
That being said, I have tried the 2 day fast formula, and it is AWESOME, but it is not for everyday. It is by Beachbody. (Its not something to use routine, but just telling anyone thinking about using it).
Beverly Intl protein shakes are very good, and especially for ladies, it is low fat and zero sugar. (If you aren't looking for a "gainer" or true "meal replacement".). A lot of fitness competitors use Beverly. You can get it on Amazon. Muscle milk light is ok, but has gotten some bad press for the ingredients. At the end of the day, it depends on what your budget is, and you have to make adjustments. I don't think one supplement is going to make/break your workout and fitness journey if you are consistent in all areas.
Several fitness professionals I know have told me if you don't want to spend the money on Shakeology, make sure you take a good multivitamin. Also, the Beachbody protein powder (whey) is good, and not as expensive.
Just my 2 cents.

My main concern is I'd like something with NO artificial sweeteners, and NO nasty aftertaste like the new chocolate formula has. Any suggestions appreciated! (I've already written down a few names of products from this thread to research -- thank you!)

Hi StephDeni,,
NO, you are not being ridiculous, you are being truthful!
Due to other issues regarding the new "superfoods formula" (please see the side effects thread started by Wendybird7),I WILL NEVER PUT SHAKEOLOGY IN MY BODY AGAIN!.
So, while searching for alternatives, I found this on a BB thread AND THERE ARE NO PROPRIETARY INGREDIENTS. I hope you enjoy it! Amazon has the best prices,too! I am posting this on many other threads for people , too!

Here's the recipe:
You could also add Rainbow Superfruit to the shake but it would increase the price a bit, not too much!

"It is very easy to recreate shakeology. A lot of companies have made these shakes even before shakeology even became "a thing". Neutrabolics Athletes Food is a complete meal replacement with all the benefits of shakeology at a higher calorie count at a smaller cost. There are also more ways you can do this with even more benefits than shakeology has and I've even counted up the costs of doing all of these. I'll put a recipe below for an example.

1 Tablespoon of Vibrant Health Green Vibrance
1/2 a scoop of hydrowhey by Optimum nutrition
8 oz simply orange juice

All at 170 calories at $2.31 per serving. Same amount of calories and more nutrients than Shakeology. at about half the cost.
Hope all this information is useful. I can't post links to the above products but a quick google search you can find them"

Enjoy!
Lisa
