Has anyone tried Shakeology from Beachbody?

Options
I've heard so many great things about it. Just wondering if it is too good to be true.

Looking for people's experience with it.

    I have. It is good, it is not a life changer though. Not sure what you are looking for from it

    I did years ago. I thought it pretty much sucked. And is/was waaaaaaay too expensive for what it is/was.

    Shakeo: Mediocre, vastly overpriced product sold by unqualified "coaches" who are part of an MLM scheme. :)

    I heard that it is a meal replacement packed with a lot of nutrients. I'm interested in trying it, but wanted to hear others' experiences with it first .

    I will give it that if I drank one in the morning (you have to mixed it with other stuff or it's unbearable), it would keep me full until lunch. But I don't think that is any different from others that are cheaper. It ends up being about $110 a month, plus you have to buy the fruit and whatever else you want to mix with it.

    Thanks for the article! It's very informative. I'm having second thoughts about getting Shakeology.

    Waste of $$$$$

    If you want to drink a smoothie for a meal, buy your own protein powder for 1/16 of the cost and add whatever you want. Done.

    Don't be fooled by some overly hyped MLM scheme

    Overpriced meal replacement powder that tastes awful. There is nothing magical about it. If you are looking for a cheaper, better tasting alternative buy a good protein powder and take a multivitamin and probiotic.

    ETA: The only people that sing about its miraculous powers are the BB "coaches"

    I think it's overpriced and it tasted like chalk to me. I was even offered a free container from my friend who hated it too. It's mediocre in terms of quality. But I would rather invest in quality protein and make my own shake.

    I do not have any experience with Shakeology, but have had friends that like. I use some of the Zija International products that contain moringa oleifera. They are more nutritionally based vs. protein supplementation.

    I have. It is way too overpriced. But it taste amazing in my opinion. In terms of benifits? Eh, don't know of its that big of a difference from a regular protein shake.
