I’ve heard a lot of good things about Shakeology during my first round of P90X but I contemplated due to its cost. Basically, Shakeology comes in two packaging options — a one-month supply bag that contains 30 servings and another is a one-month supply box that contains 24 individual packets. Both cost $119.95 (the Vegan version cost $129.95). The 30-serving bag will give you the biggest bang for the bucks as it costs only about $4/day — about the same or less than what you would spend at Starbucks in a single trip.
It comes in 4 flavors:
- Regular Chocolate
- Chocolate Vegan
- Tropical Strawberry (Vegan)
What does it do actually?
Eliminate Toxins – Shakeology has proprietary blend of digestive enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics that helps your body eliminate toxins that have built up in your digestive system over the years due to eating highly processed foods, fast food, and junk food. A healthy digestive system makes it easier to absorb the nutrients you need for optimal health.
Curb Cravings for Sugar and Junk Food – While your body is cleansing itself from the inside out, Shakeology’s 100% whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to help curb its cravings.
Shred Stored Fat – Your body will begin to shed stored fat while Shakeology’s superfoods (that are chock-full of antioxidants and phytonutrients) work their magic, helping reduce “free radical” damage that could potentially lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and strokes.

Why I chose it?
The main reason why I decided to give it a try is because it’s macro-nutrient ratio gives me what my body needs. Take the Chocolate flavor for example (which by the way has been changed to the original flavor that people love), it only has 2g of fat but has 17g of carb and 17g protein! You need to take in enough protein to build or maintain your muscle mass while losing fat so this is important.
Here are some money-saving tips:
- The shipping is around $10 but you can get free shipping if you make it auto-ship to you every month.
- You get a 10% discount if you sign up for the Team Beachbody Club membership, which also will make me your personal coach.
- Ask me for more discount opportunities if you think you still can’t afford it.
