Shakeology Review - An Inside Look at the Beachbody Shakeology Meal Replacement Shake

I wanted to write this Shakeology review since I've now had an opportunity to use this popular meal replacement shake for several months.

I've used many different types of meal replacement products and protein powders over the years, so I was really excited to see how the Beachbody Shakeology supplement stacked up in comparison.

Shakeology Review - Part 1

In this first portion of my Shakeology review, we'll cover some of the basics such as flavors, taste, and ingredients...

The Beachbody Shakeology meal replacement product comes in a powder form, and it's currently available in two flavors:
  1. Chocolate
  2. Greenberry
While both flavors are appealing, they're obviously dramatically different. While some people have reported that they prefer the Greenberry flavor, I personally feel that Chocolate tastes the best. In fact, it's probably the best tasting powdered supplement I've ever had tasted -- absolutely delicious.

If you happen to get tired of drinking the same flavor every day, there are also a ton of great Shakeology recipes that you can try. Keep in mind that you'll lose some of the convenience that Shakeology offers if you start adding additional ingredients, as you'll need a blender. Otherwise, a simple shaker cup and some water is all you'll need.

While the taste of Shakeology was the initial thing that caught my attention, the high quality Shakeology ingredients are equally (if not more) impressive. Beachbody took great care in formulating the Shakeology meal replacement shake, and all of the ingredients that they sourced are healthy and of the highest quality.

When you look over the list of Shakeology ingredients, you won't find stuff like artificial sweeteners or other harmful additives that are typically spotted on the labels of similar products. Shakeology is all-natural and doesn't contain stuff that you shouldn't be eating, it literally is "the healthiest meal of the day"

Shakeology Review - Part 2

Now that we've covered the basics, I'll discuss some of the things that I've really grown to love about this product.

The first thing that I think you'll really enjoy is the convenience of Shakeology. Whether you're at home, on the road traveling, or simply don't have time to take a lunch break -- Shakeology provides an ultra-convenient way to feed your body the wholesome nutrition it craves. 

Simply add a single scoop of Shakeology powder to a shaker cup, pour in some water (or another liquid if you prefer), and shake.

Another thing that I've grown to love is the Shakeology autoship program. Beachbody offers something called "Home Direct" that basically reorders Shakeology for you each month -- automatically. I love this because it means that I don't have to remember to place my order, and Beachbody also picks up the shipping fees on all autoship orders. Lastly, they also include two free bonuses with all Home Direct orders:
  • A FREE Shakeology shaker cup
  • 2 FREE Shakeology workout DVD's
Shakeology Review - Conclusion

I hope that you've enjoyed reading my Shakeology review. If you can't already tell, I'm a firm believer in Shakeology and it has become a valuable part of my daily diet. If you're thinking about trying Shakeology out, I would highly recommend it and because Beachbody backs it up with a money back guarantee, you have nothing to lose.
