Issues With Shakeology
Issues With Shakeology
shakeology abdominal issue
1/25/13 12:40 PM
I have been a loyal Beachbody customer for 7 years and I have been happily using Shakeology daily for 3+ years and have been very satisfied with it until recently. About two weeks ago, as I always do, had my Shakeology at breakfast time.

I started to have stomach discomfort and had diarrhea for the better part of the week. I stopped using Shakehology for two weeks and my stomach felt back to normal so I started taking it again this morning for the first time in two weeks and I am starting to have the same affects.

Has anyone had issues like this with Shakeology? I know that there is a new new formula that was just released in December, but that is not the one I have been taking.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.


PS- I called the customer support line to see if there was someone from Beachbody to speak to about this issue and I was told there wasn't. I would think BB would have some support line to field inquiries about adverse reactions to their products. If you are a BB employee reviewing this post, let me know if there is a better number to call.

I have had digestive issues with Shakeology ever since they changed the formula. I cannot handle the bloating & gas, it does not matter what I try -- more and more digestive enzymes, of every type -- drinking more water, LOTS more water... I tried switching to the vegan and it was SO much worse. emoticon I believe they added plant proteins when they changed to the Superfood formula, and my body must not do well with them. They also *doubled* the fiber, and it may be that I just don't do well with the type of fiber they are using. I am on day 3 of completely stopping the Shakeology (again) because this "new new" formula was now causing constipation, as well. Very uncomfortable... and not making me feel very "slim". emoticon I have never been one to lean toward constipation, sorry if that is TMI for anyone but the fact is that my bowels have usually had the opposite problem for most of my life. So for a product to do *that* to me... I decided that it just plain may not be a product that I can live with anymore.
