Shakeology Portion Size Question
shakeology chocolate portion size
6/25/10 1:32 PM
The bag of Shakeology says a portion is 48 grams or one scoop. I looked at the scoop and it says 80 ccs at the bottom. One cubic centimeter of water weighs one gram. So is the "one scoop" rule correct? When I use a whole scoop in 8 ounces of water or milk, it seems way too sweet and pretty nasty. When I cut the serving back to where the handle meets the scoop (about half way) it tastes more like a shake and is pretty good. BTW, this is with Chocolate.

I noticed in the "Tony Horton mixes up some Shakeology" video, he's making a shake for himself and another person. He says in the video, "I'm gonna go for the big scoop for two of us", then he takes one scoop to make 16 ounces of Shakeology. It looks like the same scoop that came in the package.

So what is it? Is one serving half a scoop or a whole scoop?

Thanks!

One full scoop will give you the nutrition facts listed on the package. That doesn't mean you need to eat that much. It's your choice. There's plenty o' nutrition in a half scoop.

So you're saying the 80cc scoop equals 48 grams?

Yes, the scoop equals 48g of chocolate shakeology. 40g of greenberry. I can't really equate the ccs to the grams because cc is a measurement of volume and gram is a measurement of weight.

After doing some research, that's not correct. A quick search on Google reveals that cc=ml and 48g=1.5oz. By searching 1.5oz to ml you get 44.3602943 ml. Meaning that CC to g are almost equal (other sites also reveal that cc to gram are almost equal if not 1 or 2 ml more per g. Therefore if you have a 80cc scoop, then using the entire scoop will give you equal, if not more the amount of grams (80g). The serveing size on the back calls for 48g, which would be around the line on the scoop.

keep in mind that that items with different densities will have different weights for the same volume. There is a difference between ounces for volume and ounces for weight.

If that's the case, how come I'm getting less than 30 servings with the bag using the full scoop? Has anyone else kept track of the number of servings that came from the bag? I decided to do that when I realized I was buying the bag faster than every 30 days (I didn't do home direct because I wanted to do some budgeting first), and the only reason I switched to the bag from the more convenient packets is because of the serving differences (or alleged ones).

I have had the exact same problem! I have been 5 to six days short. I called customer service and the nice lady double checked and the proper portion was a full scoop. I have been a customer since 2010 and I do not like to run out of my shake. This has been happening for the past six months so I thought maybe my shipments were off or something along that line and finally called. The lady informed me that they are automatically every thirty days and on months with 31 days I might be a day late receiving my shipment. This is when the scoops came up and I asked about that. She then confirmed that a full scoop (as it says on the bag 1 scoop) not to the line is a serving. She suggested I see how many scoops are in the next bag I have and call back. I received my bag today and it only had 25 scoops. UM???
I called customer service again and I have an open ticket with them. I want to get to the bottom of this. What am I spending my money on every month as a loyal customer and receiving in return? This was not always this way. The gentleman I spoke with on the phone had the audacity to tell me I would not run out if I only filled it to the line on the scoop. Where does it say on the bag that you have to fill it to the line to get the full servings? I'm not very pleased with this.
Recently, Shakeology added superfruits and changed their bag. I remember thinking the new bags seemed a little lighter but eh, whatever. I never had a problem. Well now, I'm ticked and cant wait to talk to someone.
This has been Chocolate Shakeology in the bag I'm referring to. Automatic shipment for the past almost 3 years. I'm not making this up. I'm simply happy to see I'm not the only one with this problem. I will have to let those in the community know how this is resolved. I love this product and am highly disappointed.

I have the same question and did notice the new bag seemed a little smaller. Anyway, for taste purposes I only fill the scoop to the line, which looks like about half. To me it tastes best this way and does not make me too full.

I'm sorry to hear this. The bag I'm looking at says "Portion Size: 1 scoop (42 grams)".

The bag also says it contains 1260 grams, which divided by 30 comes back to 42 grams per serving. If I could find my gram scale I'd measure out 42 grams of Shakeology and tell you whether it's the line or the top of the scoop or even heaping. But it's missing. If you have a gram scale please use the 42 gram portion to figure out exactly where on your scoop that falls, and let the rest of us know here.

I know this is from2010 but I wanted to see what the outcome was - I just noticed the same thing with our chocolate bag running our before the greenberry and the scoop size difference! Any insight as to what customer service came back with?

You sure that's not just because chocolate tastes better?

No, seriously, the scoop size is the same, I believe. What is different is the WEIGHT of a serving (aka 1 scoop). Greenberry and Vanilla weigh in at 35 grams per scoop. Chocolate at 42 grams. And, obviously, those are on average. Density and weight of any given powdered substance are bound to vary with humidity and other factors.

If you really find yourself running out of Shakeology after 25 servings rather than 30, then the solution is just to not fill your scoop quite so high. If you're REALLY concerned about getting the serving size right I'd suggest weighing out 35 grams of Greenberry or Vanilla and 42 grams of chocolate. Then put that amount into your scoop and see where it comes to.

Why is Vanilla Shakeology only 35g per serving and others are 42g. I just feel like i'm getting less for my money, and the scoop is smaller.

If I'm not mistaken 1 serving of chocolate is 42g unless they changed it. I'd stop measuring in volume (horribly inaccurate) and start measuring with weight. I measure my Shake-O scoops (as well as all my other food) in weight on my digital food scale. They're cheap and will yield far superior results.

I don't recommend mixing Shakeology with just plain water as well, especially a mere emoticonz. Add in a few ingredients and use the recipe card.

Well, you are getting less for your money, weight wise. I'd really suggest looking at the nutrition you get for a day and decide whether you're satisfied with that. Weight is less important than that.

im actually glad to see this thread here. because in fact the chocolate scoop in the bag is in fact bigger than the greenberry one (80cc to 66cc) i understand the volume size is different and densities and all that. but following the bag serving to serving with the chocolate, you are in fact left short for a week without a shake.

It makes me wonder if they do that intentionally to convince you to buy more?
in any case, I am going to use a smaller scoop now just to simplify things for me in the future, so i can make the 30 servings last for 30 days emoticon

You sure about that? Just out of curiosity I'm going to take a scoop of my choco Shakeology and weigh out one serving, to see where it falls on the scoop.

Back from the kitchen now.

As a test I used a precise scale accurate down to the 10th of a gram. Using the scoop that came in my chocolate Shakeology bag I weighed 10 separate scoops to get an average. The lowest I got was 38 grams and the highest was 44 grams. The average came to about 41.5 grams. A bag has 1280 grams in it. That divided out to 30.84 servings in the bag at my average weight.

I can tell you that the 44 gram one is the one where I forgot to level the scoop with my finger. It didn't look like much of a difference but if you are consistently over by 2 grams for 30 days that's going to make you come up short about two servings. I think the one that was 38 must have had an air pocket I didn't see.

It's frustrating that I'm paying a ton of money for this product and you run out every month. The least BeachBody could do is make sure there is more than enough in each bag. I am sure the profit margins on this product are insane (meaning it costs them pennies to make while we pay a lot).
