imho asking that question on these boards is like going to a ford dealer and asking if ford makes good cars.

that said let me answer that question without answering it. People who wear motorcycle helmets (when helmets are not mandatory) while riding are less likely to get in an accident than those who do not. In fact, they are about half as likely. This is not because there is anything magic about the helmets, but because the kind of people who wear them are the same people who are less likely to get in an accident. they are better drivers and more committed to safety.

so, and again this is just my opinion, if you commit to buying shakeology it may keep you from cheating on your diet so much because you have spent the money on shakeology, even if shakeology had zero benefit and was just flavored water. just as the helmet has no direct effect on your ability to control a motorcycle, simply committing the money may have a positive effect on your diet.

personally i suspect this is the primary reason for most of the results people have gotten from shakeology.

Its a bit expensive, especially if you are on a budget... BUT if you think about the money you spend at the store, or eating out anything like that it adds up. Replacing one meal a day that is satisfying helps you lose or control your weight and also gives you all of the nutrients in one shake...You feel full for a lot longer and have more energy through out the busy college day. That is my personal opinion, I enjoy it and enjoy the way I feel daily when I have my shake, so well worth it IF you have the extra funds.

If your goal is weight loss, it will sure help. Shakeology is a great way of getting your macro nutrient right. It contains lot of protein and is low on carbs and calories.

I find it really useful when you are on a fat shredder plan and to hit your protein target while keeping your carbs and calories low. It really helps stop the craving and is pretty convenient as you just mix it with water.

If your on a budget, there is some cheaper alternatives but if money is not a problem i would say go for it.

Hi Brittany,

YES!! It is sooooo worth it! I have been working out to Turbo Fire for a whole year! which I LOVE by the way.
Anyway, the question is about Shakeology emoticon The reason I mentioned how long I've been working out to Turbo Fire is because it took me almost as long to get on the Shakeology band wagon emoticon

I was completely skeptical at first, thinking that it was too expensive and that everything it was boasting had to be just hype! BUT it's not! In actuality, it is everything they say it is! AND if you think about it.. it's a decent price for a meal replacement. Some people spend $4 alone on just as Starbucks or something.

It is very satisfying! I use the Vegan flavours, my favourite is the Vegan Chocolate emoticon I look forward to having my shake everyday, it satisfies my sweet tooth, curbs my cravings and appetite, and keeps me feeling full longer, not to mention all the vitamins and minerals you get from it! My hair and nails grow faster!! I feel healthier, but then again, I've been eating healthy and working out diligently for a year now!

From a skeptic turned Shakeology lifer, the answer is YES.... IMHO of course emoticon

Hope this helps,

~Sherrie

HI Brittany,

Back in 2009 I researched every shake I could possible find. Including the Body by Vi Shake.
I have used both body by vi and Shakeology.

The price point can be a sticker for Shakeology. When I was on body by vi I didnt feel much different then when I didnt drink it. Shakeology on the other hand was a completely different experience. I felt stronger, more energy, body feels much more alive (not sure the working I want to use but this will do) and I am rarely sick.

I know that money may be an issue but remember what you are wanting the shake to do. No company can match whats in the shake and how it can improve our health. Money was an issue for me as well when I went back on Shakeology, I cut out coffee and other treats!

Give it a shot and see what happens, Beach Body does have the bottom of the bag gaurentee, if you dont like it.

Hope this helps!

Thanks

From my personal experience, YES. It is worth EVERY penny. It is packed with so much great stuff! I have less cravings and more energy when I drink it consistently.

There is also a bottom of the bag guarantee. If you don't like it/don't think it is working, you can return the bag, even if it is empty and get your money back (less shipping and handling). You just have to contact customer service to do that. I can't think of a reason not to try it.
