There have been a lot people saying, “Shakeology it too expensive!” These are mostly people that have not even tried it, which is kind of unfair in my opinion. it is not right to run around town saying Shakeology is too expensive if you haven’t even tried it.
Recently I had someone tell me that because of the price difference, they were using GNC’s Lean Shake instead of Shakeology. They asked me my opinion on this GNC Lean Shake and wanted to know how it compared to Shakeology. So I did a little research to see what I could come with.
Shakeology & GNC Lean Shake – Apples And Oranges
After doing a little bit of research I realized that you can’t even really compare Shakeology to GNC’s Lean Shake, these are 2 totally different products. As you can see from the comparison chart above, Shakeology contains much more of every beneficial ingredient.
But what is more than just this comparison is that Shakeology is a superfood shake that contains these superfood ingredients (some ingredients may differ or not be included depending on flavor):
- Maca Powder
- Probiotic Blend
- Kamut Grass
- Decaffeinated Green Tea
- Sacha Inci
- Spinach Powder
- Oat Grass
- Holy Basil Powder
- Enzyme Blend
- Wheat Grass
- Apple Pectin Powder
- pea Fiber
- Ashwagandha Powder
- Astragalus Powder
- Barley Grass
- Grape Seed Extract
- Coconut Flower Nector
- Luo Han Guo
- Himalayan Crystal Salt
- And Maybe Some More That Missed!
These are all superfood ingredients that are contained in Shakeology that provide numerous benefits to the body. This is why Shakeology is more expensive than the average “meal replacement shake”. Shakeology is not your average shake.
And Shakeology Tastes Great!
As for my thoughts on GNC’s Lean Shake taste, I haven’t tried it, so I’m not really in a position to say. All I know is that Shakeology tastes great and the feedback I get from my customers is the same. The Tropical and Chocolate Shakeology is very good, the Greenberry, well…that’s another story.
Shakeology can’t really be compared to anything because there is nothing like it out on the market. My recommendation is to try it out for 30 days, and if you are not happy with your results, or how it tastes, or for whatever reason, you can send it back the empty bag for a full refund of your purchase price. No questions ask, no games to play or hoops to jump through.
Here’s what a few Shakeology customers had to say about it:
“Shakeology had an immediate effect on my hunger—stopping it completely!” -Debbie T., Evans, GA.
“Shakeology gave me the digestive health to be able to go off my colitis medications. Plus, I lost about 7 pounds.” -Kristin H., Lincoln, NE.
“I feel so energized!!!! Yes, those exclamation points are real energy! :)” -Caterina P., Roseville, MI.
“Since beginning Shakeology in April 2009, I have lost 53 pounds. In October 2009, I was taken off my high blood pressure medication after 2 years! My doctor has told me to keep doing whatever it is I’m doing. People tell me I look thin, awesome, beautiful, and do not look my age. I feel fantastic and much younger. I personally think I look better than I ever have in my life! I can look in the mirror and be proud of my appearance now. My skin and hair are healthy looking. I have more energy, and if I happen to miss taking Shakeology, I feel a difference in my energy level, as it’s not as strong.”
I believe Shakeology has made a positive healing impact on my digestive system and endocrine system. It has fueled my body with the nutrients it needs so I don’t get cravings for wrong junk foods anymore. I can drive by fast-food restaurants and even other restaurants and have no desire for them anymore. That has been awesome! Before, it was like those places would “call me” as I tried to drive past them. I never get headaches anymore, do not crave sugar, and I’m not snacking at night anymore, either. Another major bonus is that I do not have hot flashes anymore—while in peri-menopause! “-Joyce B., Vestal, NY.
