Buy the Best Meal Replacement for Weight LossThe Shakeology meal replacement mentions “whole-food ingredients” – what does this mean? How is it possible when it’s ground to a powder?
Shakeology uses several whole-food sources of nutrients, rather than using only synthetic extracts or isolates (like some multivitamin pills or other diet meal replacements). The benefit of whole-food derived ingredients is that the nutrients are preserved as close to their natural state as possible and are therefore delivered to your body in the most holistic way possible. Your body will better absorb and more efficiently use the nutrients from whole-food sources. The process of converting a food from its natural state to a powder, if done incorrectly, can destroy the nutrients in that food. To bring you the best meal replacement available, we ensure the highest levels of nutrients are preserved through strict temperature-controlled drying and processing.

Why is there fructose in this Diet Shake?
To give Shakeology its great taste and for a balanced, well-rounded macronutrient profile we’ve used fructose. Fructose is a natural sugar found in fruit and some vegetables. The good thing about fructose–as opposed to glucose (table sugar) or high-fructose corn syrup (chemically altered sugar)–is that it is very low on the glycemic index (GI). This means that your body sends it directly to the liver for absorption, which minimizes its impact on insulin and blood sugar levels. The fructose in Shakeology is from non-GMO (not genetically-modified) sources and is processed cleanly in GMP-certified (Good Manufacturing Practice) facilities.

Is it OK to drink more than one protein shake a day or to replace more than one meal a day?
Yes, but it is not recommended to replace more than 2 meals per day with any protein drink.

Can I drink this healthy shake right before a workout?
Shakeology would be a better option than a full meal prior to working out. However, if it’s immediately before a workout, you’d be better served by something with more sugar and less fiber for rapid absorption, such as Results and Recovery Formula or Meal Replacement.

Can I drink this shake right after a workout?
Again, it’s better than many other options available but less perfect than something designed primarily for this purpose, such as Results and Recovery Formula.

Can I mix this meal replacement powder in with food I’m cooking/baking?
Cooking or heating Shakeology would destroy many of the nutrients and upset the nutrient balance. It’s highly recommended that you drink it at room temperature or cooler.
