The idea of making your own is a great gift as these are regulars in my pantry. How effective do you think eating fish every day for 2 weeks be? My body responds positively when I DO eat protein, but I have a natural dislike of just about all protein So now that I plan to go out and buy protein powder, asap, can you please educate me on what type of protein powder I should get.

Two different groups of test subjects consumed either IsaLean Shakes as part of Shake Days or a food-based healthy diet.

At the end of ten weeks, the subjects who followed the Isagenix system with IsaLean Shakes had lost more weight, more fat, more visceral fat, and had better improved health biomarkers. And compliance was better with Isagenix, too. The study was published in two peer-reviewed journals and provides strong support for the effectiveness of having IsaLean Shake as a regular part of your diet 1,2. Macronutrients—aka carbs, protein, and fat—are calorie-containing nutrients that fuel the many functions of the body.

A good meal replacement will have a healthy balance of these, in addition to a good dose of fiber. If you want a meal replacement to do its job, you need something like IsaLean Shake that provides 24 grams of protein, 24 grams of carbs, 6 grams of fat, and 8 grams of fiber along with all the necessary micronutrients vitamins and minerals. Speaking of satiety, protein is known to play a big part, especially when embarking on a reduced calorie diet—more protein will keep you feeling fuller 4.

Studies also show that the typical Western diet tends to not be ideal for protein distribution and that consuming about 20 to 40 grams of protein at each meal leads to better weight management and increased muscle synthesis 5,6.

Jayne Williams, author of Slow Fat Triathlete. 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. Individual results may vary.

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: Yum I think I will go have one now: I just wanted to say I don't understand all the chatter about taste - I have used the product for 1 week and the taste is good - is it as good as a milk shake from McDonalds? Your "x" rather than a check for Shakeology fiber indicating less than 5 grams per serving is inaccurate.

Definitely gets me started and makes me feel full and full of energy. I have already noticed a difference in energy, and I've lost 5 lbs in 6 days. As far as the taste goes, I tried the regular chocolate, and wasn't a fan, however I have also tried the vegan tropical strawberry and the vegan chocolate and they both have a much better taste.

I don't think you can rate something on taste. It's true that everyone has different taste but we appreciate knowing what each person prefers. Glad to hear that your cravings have gone away as you've been drinking this shake.

If I drink the shake in the morning, I don't need coffee, it seems to give me the same energy as caffeine. Can't tell you how many people I have talked to that have turned around their digestive problems after starting Shakeology.

Maybe their systems were missing some important nutrients but whatever - they are sticking with the product. I enjoy the chocolate, I haven't gained weight from the sugar everyone seems to complain about, and it improves my mood. Oh, and regarding some of the comments below about customer service NO aftertaste, no artificial ingredients It's a multi-level marketing scheme aka pyramid scheme that turns normal people into annoying non-stop carnival barkers on social media as they try to recruit new customers.

I ordered several months' worth of the chocolate shake and I did find that it filled me up until lunch. And I think it does taste better than many others I've tried Vega and other brands available at Whole Foods.

There's no way around it so I called to cancel today. Don't order this product! I have called and they are still taking money out of my credit card for product that I don't want anymore! I hardly ever get sick, if I get any cold or flu symptoms they don't last more than 48 hours, compare to weeks of being sick in the past. I"ve had a very good experience with the customer service when I need to return a product because I have too much. If I didn't like the flavor they had nicely send me another one at no cost to me.

I lost 30 pounds, kept them off, and I'm in the best shape of my life thanks to Shakeology and Beachbody. That's because you had the "home direct" auto shipment.

You don't need the extra protein or the heavy metals our tests found
