Shakeology Reviews, Why You Can Lose A Ton Of Weight With This Supplement


 Last Updated : September 24th 2016
By Brad Kopec…If you spend about 5 minutes looking over Shakeology reviews, you’ll see a ton of Beachbody coaches talk about all the nutrients, vitamins, protein, and other good stuff that makes this supplement unique.

These reviews are totally transparent and its obvious they’re just trying to promote this supplement to their financial benefit.  I will give you a real, unbiased Shakeology review and why I honestly feel the benefits of this drink are far beyond the ingredients, vitamins, protein, and carb quantities.

There’s a real reason you can lose a ton of weight and have tremendous success taking this supplement that they don’t talk about.

First, I’ll discuss the ingredients and how they differ from other protein powders and meal replacements, then I’ll talk about how this supplement offers something no other protein powder or supplement can offer, and how this can help transform your body.

Ingredients And More

Take a quick look at the nutrition information in Shakeology and how it stacks up against other protein powders and meal replacements…

At first glance, its pretty comparable to other supplements.   140 calories, 17 grams of protein, and 17 grams of carbs.  Pretty standard stuff.

But look further down the page and you’ll immediately see how the vitamins have far more to offer than the others on the list.

And look even further down the page and you’ll see a list of more stuff that Shakeology has the no other supplement offers.  Things like flax, probiotics, and oat grass.  These ingredients really separate Shakeology reviews from the other supplements out there.  In fact, not only will you not find those ingredients in other supplements, you’ll find ALL NATURAL ingredients in Shakeology, an Shakeology alternatives.

Take a quick look at other protein powders and meal replacements and you’ll see a long list of chemicals.  A lot of crap you can’t even pronounce.  Shakeology, on the other hand is just a short list of natural ingredients.

If you’re going to be taking a supplement to enhance your health why would you take something that was full of unnatural ingredients? That’s like drinking a screwdriver and saying that the vodka in the drink doesn’t matter because it will be offset by the vitamin C from the orange juice.

Don’t Expect To Lose 50 lbs. In 3 Days, But…

The people at Beachbody promote Shakeology like crazy, but they actually promote it as a nutrient enhancer, not a miracle shake that will help you lose 50 lbs. in 3 days.  And this is a great thing.

Contrary to pretty much all the weight loss products out there telling you a bunch of BS about how you can lose a crap-ton of weight, Beachbody doesn’t do that.  They simply tell you its a nutrient enhanced meal replacement with the perfect amount of protein, carbs, vitamins, and nutrients designed to give you proper nutrition, not a miracle weight loss.

Have you ever spent money on a weight loss pill, supplement, or drink only to not lose a single pound?

Shakeology doesn’t make these claims, which is why its something to consider as legitimate.  If you use it  as a meal replacement that offers everything your body needs to build muscle and enhance your overall health you’ll have success.  If you use it as a miracle weight loss supplement, chances are you won’t lose a pound.

But, if you want to lose a ton of weight, Shakeology does offer something that no other supplement can give you…

Been There, Done That

Ok so Shakeology will not make you lose a ton of weight overnight, but you can lose a significant amount of weight using Shakeology because the only way to buy this stuff is through a Beachbody coach.


This is what separates this drink from all the others.  You have to purchase Shakeology from a Beachbody coach, which is an independent Beachbody affiliate.  A Beachbody coach, like myself, is someone who has been there and done that.

We have gone through p90x, Insanity, 10 Minute Trainer, Hip Hop Abs, Body Beast, T25, Chalean,  T25, Hammer And Chisel, and many other Beachbody workouts.

We have used or are using Shakeology on a regular basis.

We have persevered through the difficulty, frustration, and even loneliness of these difficult exercise programs, lost weight, and changed our lives.

In short, we have been there,  lost weight, got in shape, and done that.  And with our direct assistance, you can too.

And that is REALLY how Shakeology differs from all the other protein powders or meal replacments out there.  When you purchase Shakeology from a Beachbody coach, you’re not just getting a supplement, you’re getting advice and friendship from someone who has been there and struggled just like you, and can help you reach your weight loss, fitness goals, and change your life.

This is how you can lose a ton of weight with Shakeology.  A combination of these drinks on a regular basis, with a great exercise program, and the advice and support of a willing coach can truly transform your body and life.

But, Isn’t It Expensive?

This is one of the best supplements available, but many people are legitimately turned off by the high price, $130 retail price without any of the available discounts.  However, there are many ways to get around this high price tag.  Here’s a good way of looking at the price from a different perspective.

If a bag costs $130 each month and you take one drink each day, that costs you $4 each day.  Each day, I easily spend $7 on food, so for me, using Shakeology is actually cost effective, and I’m sure many will agree.    Furthermore, the $7 I do spend is usually on a salad and some kind of healthy snack, but its nowhere near the nutrition of one serving of Shakeology.

Also, you have the choice of many delicious flavors.  Over the years, Beachbody has added many new flavors and even made Shakeology healthier by adding vegan options.  Among the flavors are chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, greenberry, cafe latte, chocolate vegan, and tropical strawberry vegan.  I’ve tried all seven and some are better than others, but you have many options to choose from.

However, $130 each month is pricey for many of us.  Fortunately, Beachbody offers discounts when you sign up for monthly autoship, if you join the Beachbody Club, or if you become a Beachbody coach you’ll receive the highest discount.  And if these discounts STILL don’t fit your budget, you can get a bag through Ebay.  I’ve seen prices for as low as $89 on Ebay.

From Down And Out To Happy And Healthy

So here’s my personal Shakeology story…

Back in 2008 I was looking to change my life.  I was in the process of getting a divorce and I started slacking off on my routine workouts at the gym.  The stress of my personal life was starting to affect my health both mentally and physically.  Gaining weight and high blood pressure needed to stop so I researched different supplements thinking that might motivate me to start working out more.

I purchased some Shakeology and a day or two later was emailed from a Beachbody coach introducing himself who proceeded to mention the benefits of Shakeology and how I made a great decision to buy it.  He went on to mention the workout program P90X and how I might be interested.

At the time, Beachbody was promoting P90X like crazy through infomercials and since I was looking for something different, decided to set up a small home gym in my basement and commit to the program for 90 days.

90 days later I lost 20 lbs., got in the best shape of my life and felt great.

However, I felt so great that I wanted to put this new “body” to the test.  So I joined a coed softball team.  In hindsight, I think P90X helped my athletic performance, but more importantly I made some friends for life from that softball team.

Furthermore, those group of guys I met on that team dragged me out one night where I met my wife.  Eight years later, five years of marriage, and two kids later, I am enjoying my life to its fullest.

I’m not saying Shakeology transformed my life, but its funny how small things can make a big difference in life.  My purchase of Shakeology led to P90X, which motivated me to join a sports league, which led me to new friends, which led me to a new wife, life, and happiness.  All joking and cliche aside, this is a happy ending and I’m forever grateful for deciding to buy Shakeology  years ago.  I’m not saying you’ll have a similar story, but the relationship I made with my Beachbody coach from a simple workout suggestion changed my life.

To Your Success,
