Shakeology has the slogan of “The Healthiest Meal of the Day”. What exactly does that mean, and is it really the “healthiest”? On this page we’ll explore everything that has to do with Shakeology so that you can make the right buying decision on this shake.*
To start off, I do sell Shakeology here on Sweet Life Fitness. But I’m not here to sell you on the product, YOU need to make sure it is right for you! So, I put together this information so you can understand WHAT this shake is, HOW it works, and WHY I recommend it. As always, contact me if you have more questions that I didn’t answer.
What is Shakeology?
Shakeology can function as a meal replacement shake. If you are trying to figure out how to eat healthier and lose weight, you can replace a meal with this shake. For me personally, I like to replace my Lunch with Shakeology (I have a special recipe I blend with Shakeology that makes it super tasty).
According to the USDA, we need about 9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Think about how tough that is (unless you are a super eater!)
If you think about the foods you need to eat to “stay healthy”, you’ll quickly realize how EXPENSIVE it is to eat healthy. Let alone all of the fiber, wheat, superfoods like blueberries and acai, and protein you need per day. Add that up, and you’ll be spending more money that you probably want to!
Comparing all of the ingredients in ONE serving of Shakeology, you’ll be spending about $50 per day – yikes!. One serving of Shakeology is about $4.33. So instead of $50, you get the necessary ingredients you need to maximize your healthful eating for just $4.33 per day.

Results with Shakeology – Is it Really the “Healthiest Meal of the Day?”
Shakeology was launched in 2009. Prior to launch, Beachbody (manufacturer of the shake) held an independent study. The study took place and the results came in as the following*:
- Participants lost 10 pounds on average.
- Participants cut cholesterol levels by 30% on average.
- Realized improved digestion and regularity
These participants were all closely monitored by a doctor throughout the entire process.
But then in 2013, another study happened. It was time to REALLY see if Shakeology was indeed “The Healthiest Meal of the Day”. This time, instead of 60 participants, a total of 2.769 Shakeology users participated in this study. The results came in as follows:
- 93% feel healthier since drinking Shakeology
- 72% say that Shakeology has helped them lose weight
- 86% feel Shakeology has helped them increase their energy
- 81% feel Shakeology has helped them reduce their cravings for junk food
- 81% say Shakeology helps keeps them full until the next meal
- 82% reported improved digestion

- Speaking honestly, as I mentioned above, it is my lunch daily. If I had to give up all supplements except one, Shakeology is what I would keep. Getting the right nutrition is crucial.
