Cant get shakeology - alternatives?
Showing 11 results.
hey everyone!! all i hear are rave reviews of shakeology, but I live in the UK so cant get it emoticon

Is there a recipe perhaps i can use to try and at least make something close to it, or is there something else i can take instead? am missing out over here, but its not worth trying to order it as it wont get past customs!

thanks for the advice!

Hi Missmo83,

Actually, you can get it in the UK. I've sent you a buddy request and will send you the information on how to get it as an International Beach Body Customer.

Have a good day,

Justin, Can you mix that with weigh protein and get the same results as a shakeology? This may be a good alternative until I can get some Shakeology. Thanks.

Yes. All the benefits of shakeology are in vibrant health and especially for 1/4 the cost per month for better ingredients without a propriatary blend.

Coaches make $30 off of anyone they can get to buy shakeology let alone beachbody as a whole makes a ton of profit off it anyways the coach then tries to encourage you to get home direct so they can keep making a profit off you every month for a "discount".

It is then reported on these boards and other places that it is hard to get off of home direct once you've started home direct. I wouldn't take any chances.

The idea is to try to get healthy, not to spend a whole bunch of money on powders that don't live up to their promises in results.

So just remember this every time a coach tries to over exaggerate a products benefits. If it's too good to be true... It probably is.

Well since I haven't over exaggerated anything in my response I'll assume you directed that to other people even though they don't seem to be in this thread. What I wonder is that you don't like Shakeology and you slam it yet you haven't said what it didn't do for you or you don't use it which would mean you don't have any first hand knowledge of the product and results it provides or doesn't provide. I'll assume you use Vibrant Health and it works well for you at least based on your photo that and your workouts and that's great, and if it works then by all means keep using it. But remember, Shakeology is a meal replacement not an additive to other products. If you don't use Protein powders or don't make Protein shakes then maybe Shakeology is right for you, heck maybe your favorite isn't available either. I actually do both, protein shakes and Shakeology, and for me it works.

I don't push product and I don't try to get a commission because I have a job and more importantly, I coach so that I can pay it forward and help others succeed and reach their goals. I also coach so that I can get my coach discount. To me for the supplements I use and their equals at GNC or the local shop the prices are actually better from BB and the results, for me, are great. But it isn't Shakeology alone. It's not a wonder supplement, or a miracle powder. It works for me because as a meal replacement I watch what I eat. I figure if I'm going to spend money and time to get healthy and stay healthy I'm going to watch what I eat at other times as well. And for me it's been great. Since I started using it I've been much more focused on my meals and what I'm eating vs. the I'm working out so I can eat that approach. And I've had success with that approach and product. If someone asks about a product and I can answer with my on experience I will but if I don't have that experience I ask others or recommend they ask others. As I've told international team members, there are package forwarding companies. They are the same people I've told to call BB directly to purchase programs so that they can save on the outrageous shipping costs for international packages...no coach commission and those are much better on programs due to costs. Here is a comparison of Shakeology vs many others...http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/1196/shakeologycomparison.jpg

Like I said, I coach to pay it forward and for my discount on products. I've been helped with advice from my coach and from others on these boards and I want to be able to do the same. If someone doesn't agree that works and is actually good for the boards because there are many things out there that work for people. Heck, I've never seen a long distance runner struggle with his/her weight but for many of us that isn't an option due to injuries or other. For some people, Shakeology and Vibrant Health won't impact them like those products have for you and I and that's just how it is and they will need to find something else. But for many people they will be impacted and the best way is to try different things and see what works and what makes them feel better in regards to supplements. I took a GNC product a couple years ago that cause stomach issues with me but my wife...nothing so she still takes it and I've switched. Is it a bad or overpriced product, nope, not at all but it did cause me issues.

Is Shakeology expensive? I pay $90 per month for mine and get 30 meals so to me it's $3 a day. I use to have 2 or 3 Diet Cokes every day and 2 coffees now I buy the Via from Starbucks and make a 22oz coffee for $1 and spend $3 on Shakeology and $2 on a Banana and Apple so I've taken the same $'s and reallocated...works for meemoticon But each person has to decide that for themselves. You said in a different post "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"...so Shakeology is $1 more a day but doesn't have to be mixed into anything else, saving the cost of something else at lets just say $30 which would be $3 per day...same cost just a different product.

I'm glad you've found something that works for you and I think you have some great points but I disagree with pushing any product and think that each person is going to have to, thru trial and error, find the best mix for them.

I know there's something you like about the BB products but not the supplements otherwise you wouldn't be online responding to posts right? So what do you like about them?

By the way I have no interest in selling you anythingemoticon
