To be honest, I am probably the most excited to try this shake…why you may ask?? Well….when I was a Beachbody coach, I had a bunch of customers switch to isagenix (and vice versa) so in my mind I figured it was comparable. Even as a coach, I kind of wanted to try out the competition but I never did. Since Isagenix is a very popular MLM, I believe it’s probably Shakeology’s biggest competition.
Admittedly, I do not know that much about Isagenix but I know that they have various cleanses you can do and people have amazing success with it. One of my friends (not a consultant) messaged me that she now does Isagenix instead of Beachbody, and she lost 9 pounds in a few weeks. That is pretty impressive!!! They also have other shakes, snacks and various other products that all look enticing.
As for the shake, I know Dr. Laurie Brodsky discussed the nutrition in an amazing post yesterday, but I just wanted to explain some important nutritional information for me. I have always been anemic with respect to iron and b12. Shakeology helped cure both of those so I was very happy to see iron and b12 in the shake.
Each shake has 240 calories which is a lot higher than what I’m used to (chocolate Shakeology only has 160 calories). As a calorie counter, that is a big difference but I understand why the difference.
Today, I had people working in my house so I couldn’t get to my kitchen. I literally only had this shake (I had to shake it up in my bathroom with room temperature water) and it’s now almost 6pm. This is the most filling shake I’ve ever had. The taste is INCREDIBLE!! It actually tastes better than Chocolate Shakeology..which I didn’t even think was possible. It does taste a little similar to Chocolate Shakeology, just tastes more like a chocolate milkshake to me because it is much creamier.
I have been so energized on it all day too and feel great!!! Day one in, and I could totally see why so many of my friends are obsessed with this shake!!!
