How much do you really need? Kathy Burns, a toxicologist and founder of Sciencecorps, a Boston-area nonprofit network of science and medical professionals, was concerned about possible health effects of protein supplements her then high-school-aged son and his friends extensively used. Place all ingredients in a blender and mix well. Do you think that an equal amount of eggs or fish would do the trick for him? Another issue is that in the therapy i did not include the protein shake but instead tuna chunks and other rich-protein foods..

What are GNC Lean Shakes?
Our whey is our only formula that contains any predigested protein. I am not a believer in fully digesting a protein powder because it can absorb too quickly causing an amino acid rush similar to a sugar rush.
Protein and carbohydrate should break down slowly over time during natural digestion for best usability by the body. Does your egg white protein have any vitamin D in it, and how much? Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and egg whites are fat-free, therefore it contains no vitamin D. All the vitamin D content in eggs is found in the yolk. The amino acids phenylalanine and aspartic acid are on your nutrition facts panel.
Aren't these in the sweetener Aspartame? Phenylalanine and aspartic acid are naturally occurring amino acids in egg whites. Phenylalanine and aspartic acid are two of the three main ingredients in aspartame.
Aspartame is simply an unnatural concentrated free-form combination of those two amino acids created to be used as an artificial sweetener. In our egg white protein the amount of those two amino acids is balanced and not concentrated because the product is primarily derived from egg whites.
You may use our product with the same peace of mind as you would have if you were consuming an egg white omelet at your favorite restaurant. Other than the delicious taste and the other obvious benefits listed on the container, is there any benefit to the body in using your protein powder as a health supplement versus getting protein from animal meat?

I couldn't imagine a day without a Jay Robb protein drink! I was in Amarillo for three months taking care of my ill parents. I had a hemoglobin A1c just before I left, and my diabetes was out of control.
I tested out above 10, which is not acceptable. I have had a weight problem all my life. With the diabetes, I do not utilize carbs. I crave milk and that was a big problem. Why I chose your product, I don't know. I do know that by Day 2 I no longer craved milk or carb foods. It has been two months, and I have gone from pounds to pounds.
I do not crave foods, and I feel better than I have felt in years. Your products are the only thing I am doing different. Just before I returned to Kansas, I did another hemoglobin A1c and it was 6.
I chose the egg white protein because of low carbs and chose the chocolate flavor because I craved chocolate. If you ever need a recommendation, you've got it. Looking better and feeling great! Just tried your vanilla and chocolate flavored egg white protein. It is so hard to find protein that isn't stuffed with harmful junk and that tastes good.
What tastes good to one person can taste aweful to another. I will be sticking with shakeology for sure. Hi Cari, thanks for sharing your experience with different Shakeology flavors! I am not a shake lover, but I started the 21 day fix and wanted to give the shakes a shot. I really like them. I have tried chocolate and vanilla. The chocolate is my favorite, but I love the versatility of the vanilla. There are so many varieties to makes many flavors, you could have a different flavor each day if you wanted.
Even in the simplest ways, by adding a banana, peanut butter, or strawberries to name a few. The also make me feel really good, I am using them as a meal replacement for one meal a day and they do keep me feeling full. The big downfall of this product is the cost! Way too expensive, if I stop using this product, it would be because of the cost.
Just spent the last 45 minutes waiting for a customer service person, still waiting. This has given me time to review Shake.
I believe I will now change to Shake. Sorry Beach Body, poor service just lost you a customer. They were taking Shakeology for weight loss or adding protein and were happily surprised with the cessation of IBS symptoms.
Maybe their systems were missing some important nutrients but whatever — they are sticking with the product. Shakeology is the BEST product out there.
It has a great taste, is full of antioxidants, probiotics and numerous other healthy phytonutritients and cellular nutrition. If you want feedback on this amazing product from an experienced user, email gudmund mymts. Oh, and regarding some of the comments below about customer service….
NO aftertaste, no artificial ingredients…just pure amazing SUPERfood to prevent cancer, disease and promote wellbeing and energy.. Tastes pretty good I had the chocolate , and I usually use frozen strawberries with it. But, the price is prohibitive. I suggest you try and review the Sun Warrior products.
The vegans are good, but need to supplement the flavor. For chocolate, I usually add a tsp of cocoa powder, and for vanilla, I usually add a half to one tsp of vanilla extract. Added with frozen sweet cherries is awesome. To get the antioxidant part, I add a scoop of organic super green food. Together the cost of both is way cheaper than Shakeology with approximately the same nutrition profile. Plus, sun warrior lists the amino acid profile and is great for a recovery drink or meal replacement.
I find the whole Beachbody empire cultish and off-putting. Nevertheless, I tried shakeology because a friend had lost weight on it and I was looking to jump-start my own weight loss. The shakes are fine. As a quick meal on the go, it was a fine solution.
However, after a while of near-daily use I began to develop a lot of stomach discomfort, gas, and cramping. After experimenting with different possible sources, I identified the culprit as the stevia in the shake. I hope they actually follow through on that. But be sure you have a strong stomach. I have been drinking chocolate shakeology for a month and love it. The only problem is it is expensive.
I have tried to research other products that are cheaper with the same benefit. I am so confused. Anyone have any advice or know any alternatives.
I would greatly appreciate it. Shakeology is the best thing I put in my body everyday. I love the chocolate but all the flavors are good. I am a Nutritionist and I recommend it to all of my clients.
I use it as an after workout supplement because I have achieved my goal weight with Shakeology and P90X. I did not like the taste and with that much sugar and not so great ingredients, I have chosen to go with another protein shake of higher standards and quality. I do not recommend spending your money for this! I keep sending shake mix back. How do you stop this??? I have been using Shakeology for almost 4 years now. I have been able to keep my weight off for over 2 years now.
My favorite is the chocolate, and my least favorite is Vanilla. I mix them with different fruits and nut butter to change the flavors. You have to talk to a real person in order to cancel the subscription, you cannot do it through the automated service. I have not tried any other shake as good as Shakeology.
I love their fitness programs, is the only company that combines fitness and nutrition as its best. Yes, I am a coach. When you order it, at the bottom in the small print it says that you have signed up for the auto shipment and at the end of the 30 days you will be charged again. I have called to cancell but they keep charging my credit card and sending me product that I no longer want.
I would give shakeology less than 1 star. I actually ended up cancelling my creditcard. Then the auto pay and shipment stopped. The thing that you had to do was tell them to cancel home direct. As beach body coach none of my customers have ever had a problem for anything. I m here to help them in anything they need. These shakes taste horrible! They taste like chemicals. The first few days that I used Shakology it worked as advertised, kept me full was a good breakfast replacement.
However after about the first week I noticed that I was hungry after only an hour. Not all it was advertised to be. It also has the aftertaste of artificial sweetener. You have to eat clean o when drinking these shakes. They work fantastic for me. Ive been drinking them for a few months and doing a workout with them and have noticed a HUGE difference with the shakes. Eating right and exercising are an important part of a healthy lifestyle!
My understanding is that the product is sweetened with fructose. How does it have an aftertaste of artificial sweetener when it supposedly contains no artificial sweetener? Really loved this when it was sent to me in T its just way too expensive to keep up with the re-order. The chocolate is the best flavor, and when mixed with ice it tastes like a milkshake. But there are 2 serious draw bags. In addition the amount of sugar and sodium is high.
So with all the nutrients in there, the quality if the shake is diminished because 2 serious health offenders make up a significant percentage of the ingredients. I have thus been motivate to gind other more nutritious options that just happen to be less expensive. I agree about the price but find the sugar content not so bad — 9 grams. Have you found an alternative? I was also looking for something cheaper with the same or better benefits. I have been taking Shakeology off and on for about 2 years.
I have suffered from chronic migraines and arthritis for a long time. I recently started drinking it daily for the past 2 months.
Since starting I have not had any migraines and my arthritis pain has reduced immensely!! It is not just a weight loss shake and that is what makes it different than anything out there!! There are several flavors of Shakeology without ANY fructose. Get your facts straight before you publish them for public review. You are correct in that there are a couple flavors without this ingredient, ie. As soon as we get enough request to review these specific flavors we would be happy to!
For a complete breakdown of which flavors have fructose and which do not please refer to their company website at http: I have been drinking Shakeology for about a year now.
I love the Chocolate Vegan flavor and the Tropical Berries. It is also vegan. My other favorite flavors are Greenberry, Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry in that order. I had never used a shake before to loose weight. I did for me what they advertised: Or just the ice and water. I have had health problems in the past. I changed alot of my eating habits 2 years ago. Even with the healthy lifestyle that I live it has been a struggle to lose weight. I was very disappointed with Shakeology.
Since I have been trying to get 20 pounds off I thought that shakeology would be a step in the right direction. If eating deep fried, junk, and non portion foods is the lifestyle that you are used to, then this may work for you. I have read reviews and was optimistic. I do not really have a handle on the amount of each ingredient though together it does sound healthy.
I have tried the Vanilla and chocolate. The Vanilla tastes horrible. We actually just threw it out as even with almond milk it tastes awful. The Beachbody coach said to mix it with jello but that is time consuming and I do not eat Jello routinely.
It does make you feel full though. I am still on the fence as it does not really affect my work out and is like drinking medicine. Awful taste took getting used to. Now i mix it with lots of water and that helps. Im ok paying for the quality. True about the cravings, Calmed down my usually endless appetite and took the place of coffee. Going to try the other flavors and try to convince my children to start drinking it my son hates veggies.
I have been using shakeology for the last 11 months.. I was going to start back Dec. Idid enjoy the shakes. But Will try others to make a final decision. My diet is important to me and my goals, saving is hard on a barista salary: I have been using it for year now.
I am amazed at how using it really has changed my eating habits. I no longer have cravings for junk food, and make much better choices in my regular meals. My health has improved, both in how I feel and in my medical test results. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Shakeology Meal Replacement Shake Shakeology is well-known and popular choice for a meal replacement shake. Price This well-known product may be popular, but it is expensive. What is Fructose and why is it in Shakeology? Fructose rapidly causes leptin resistance. Leptin is a hormone that controls appetite and metabolism to maintain a normal weight.
Leptin resistant people tend to gain fat and become obese really easily. Top rated Brand Comparison. Did you find this review helpful? Will see how it works but so far not to impressed Did you find this review helpful? We're so sorry to hear that you had an adverse reaction to Shakeology's shakes!
You're right, it's important to check the ingredients before committing to a particular shake. We've found that the best shakes to avoid allergic reactions are plant based, such as Arbonne.
We did note that fructose is included in Shakeology's recipe and we're just as concerned about that as you are! I find I have more energy and only require 7 - 8 hours of sleep per night where as pre taking Shakeology I was getting tired by 2: Hey Tom, glad to hear that your lifestyle has improved with the help of Shakeology!
Wow, it's great to hear all of the health benefits you're getting from drinking Shakeology! I'll mix the strawberry shake with banana and water for a strawberry banana. We add some spinach or kale and ice:
