Shakeology VS Herbalife
Shakeology VS Herbalife
6/11/10 9:38 PM
I've been taking Shakeology practically the last year since it came out. It's been kind of on and off because of the cost. Last Monday I decided to give Herbalife a shot after a friend recommended it to me. I've lost 4 or 5 lbs since Monday when I started.

Being a Beachbody coach I really feel kind of like a double agent here. I'd love to stick with Shakeology if I could get similar results or if someone knew the true differences between the two.

The biggest differences I see is the Shakeology doesn't have as much protein BUT with Herbalife you add more protein to it through some of their other products. I definitely didn't feel as full with Shakeology.

Has anyone taken both Shakeology and Herablife? Or know the pro's and con's of each? I'm just trying to weigh out each product.

I tried Herbalife about two years ago. I was on it for a year an lost 36 pounds. I got off of it, and within 4 months all the weight was back on. The only thing that changed then was not drinking the Formula 1 or taking the supplements.

i have just recent became a coach with BB, and my Shakeology is on its way.

Honestly, I've been on Herbalife for just a week now. At first I was feeling good BUT last night and today. Between naps and regular sleep, I've been having some BAD nightmares. Like 3 or 4 per sleep session. Not feeling that great. Honestly, I don't want to live my life drinking two shakes a day and eating one real meal.

Anything can be achieved with real food. To me, all Herbalife really is..high protein, low carb diet. That can be done with regular food. I think I'm going to try it this month if that and not do it anymore. I felt much better working out and having my one Shakeology shake per day.

You'll definitely enjoy Shakeology my friend!

I think that Shakeology is one of the best parts of my day because I feel energized and full for hours after taking it. It also tastes amazing. I have not tried Herbalife, but I am committed to Team BeachBody, so I am sticking with Shakeology thru and thru. It has helped me cut 10 pounds in about 2.5 weeks!!!

I've done a little research to compare the two. I've sampled Herbal Life while I visited a shop to compare prices. The taste wasn't bad. I also hear of several people who have lost weight with it.

On the other hand, the cost & nutritional value doesn't compare to Shakeology. Not to mention the trouble of opening this, adding that. It seems like a big hassle to blend.

I've personally lost 100 lbs with Shakeology & P90X! It took a few weeks to work my diet for best results. I found that having Shakeology for dinner works best for me. I exercise in the evening after work. I consume Shakeology immediately afterwards as a recovery drink / dinner. This way I do not go to bed on a full stomach. I also add the Slimming formula / Metabolism pills to my Breakfast. The combination works great for weight loss!

Healthy snacks are a must in between meals.

Shakeology for me!
