Shakekology Myths Debunked & How to get it for less!!

Shakeology is a superfood nutrition shake that’s a catalyst for positive change. It helps build a strong nutritional foundation of healthy energy and vitality we need to take on bigger challenges, like a fitness program or a healthier diet.

It works by addressing some nutritional gaps our diets can have with potent ingredients that help support digestive health, provide healthy energy, reduce cravings, and just plain make us feel better. And when we feel better, we do better — making smarter choices and taking on bigger challenges.

That said, trhere are a ton of misconceptions around the shake and the Beachbody Blog did a great job of putting some of these into perspective!

Here’s what they had to say!

4 Shakeology Myths You Might Have Heard:

  • Shakeology is just a protein shake.

  • Shakeology doesn’t contain whole-food ingredients.

  • Shakeology is expensive.

  • Shakeology is only for weight loss.

Myth #1: Shakeology Is Just a Protein Shake

Meaning just a shake that provides extra protein. I can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for anyshake.

But all shakes are not created equal — especially ones that contain superfoods. Shakeology is a very nutrient-dense shake.

You’d have to eat a whole lot of different foods to get the fiber, phytonutrients, protein, vitamins, and minerals in a single glass of Shakeology — and it would be tough to do that for fewer than 170 calories.

Truth be told, the majority of people are way more nutrient-deficient than they are protein-deficient.

Myth #2: Shakeology Is Just a Bunch of Extracts, With No Whole-Food Ingredients

Whenever it’s possible and sustainable for the formula, the superfoods in Shakeology are whole-ingredient powders processed in a way to help preserve their nutrient value.

It’s more difficult to source these specialty ingredients, but Beachbody has a whole team of scientists whose mission it is to help maximize the nutrition in every ingredient used in Shakeology.

Imagine trying to eat all those superfoods! Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.

When you compare other shakes against Shakeology, take a look at the calorie, fat, protein, and carbohydrate amounts, but also look at the ingredients.

For instance, you might notice other shakes have zero grams of sugar. How do you think those shakes achieve that? Hint, it’s not natural, as even fruit has sugar in it.

Shakeology has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Myth #3: Shakeology Is Expensive

To anyone who feels this product is expensive, I know that I have not done my diligence in breaking down its real value. Most healthy shakes out there cost between $3 and $10. Shakeology, at approximately $4 per shake, comes in on the low end of the average.

When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you’re buying 30 of your shakes up front. And, it means you’ll spend less money at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. I cannot duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients for the price.

Myth #4: Shakeology Is Only for Weight Loss

Most shakes are marketed this way. Shakeology is about health. When you put the right nutrients in your body, you may ultimately have more energy, fewer cravings, and feel better. As a result, you might eat less and become more active.

When was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and battling against a ton of cravings? That is because you may have been nutrient-deficient. Because it’s so nutrient-rich, Shakeology helps you in your battle to lose weight.

Shakeology isn’t magic. It’s clean, dense nutrition made supereasy. It’s my family’s “fast food” on the counter.

How to Save Money on Shakeology #1:


When you first order Shakeology, be sure to choose the Home Direct option to get free shipping (you can cancel that anytime, or even skip a month or two) Beachbody has even upgraded their system to NOTIFY you of upcoming shipments and you can now easily modify your shipping dates and flavor options right in your account settinging.

How to Save Money on Shakeology #2:


When you get a Challenge Pack through, it comes with a full program and a month of Shakeology at a reduced rate. There is usually always a Challenge Pack or Completion Pack on sale for $140 – just a little bit more than Shakeology alone. To me, it’s a win win. Often times you are spending only $10 more to get a program when you purchase shakeology.

How to Save Money on Shakeology #3:


Beachbody coaches get 25% off Shakeology, when you sign up to be a coach with a challenge pack the sign up fee ($39.95) is waived.

Don’t let the term “coach” scare you! Many people sign up to be a coach for the sole reason to get the Shakeology discount. Just ask my momma.... Beachbody set up the coaching opportunity in such a way that even for those who don’t want to do the business, can save 25% on every product they sell. There is a monthly account maintenance fee of $15.95 that covers the web sites that Beachbody provides to you.

Of course if you’d love to do more with your Beachbody business than just get a discount on Shakeology, I’m here to help you with that as well. This is why I decided to become a Beachbody Coach.

How to MAKE MONEY on Shakeology:


Also, as a coach, if you decide to recommend Shakeology to others you will earn a 25% commissions on every sale. Once your friends see your success, they will ask you what you’re doing – so it’s easy to just give them your link to order when they do. The commission isn’t just on the first shipment either, it’s for every month your friend continues with Shakeology. Start referring them to the challenge groups as well, start earning even MORE.


Why I Think Shakeology Is a Great Deal

• Shakeology helps curb my junk food cravings. Because it’s so nutritionally dense, Shakeology gives my body what it needs in a form that can be easily absorbed. Plus, it’s so incredibly delicious that it feels like I’m having a treat. Hello Chocolate Milkshake! It’s the best of both worlds!

• Shakeology is soooooooo convenient. I just add it to water and it mixes easily.

• Shakeology is packed with superfoods. I used to buy separate superfoods to add to my smoothies. Then I realized that I was spending way more on my separate superfoods per month, even from discount sources, than I would spend on Shakeology.

Compared to what I used to spend, I’m actually saving money by purchasing Shakeology!
