She went vegan in for animal, environment and world hunger reasons, and for three years ran the vegan recipe site The Voracious Vegan, which VegNews magazine named one of the Top 10 Vegan Blogs in But that was two months ago.
If you want to cheat, click here to get it now. Regular readers know that I have a hobby of analyzing MLMs and showing consumers how they deceive you. P90X and Insanity are two of the most popular ones. I noticed a good high school friend of mine promoting it on Facebook.
I pushed it to the back-burner because I wanted to believe it was legit for his sake.
Also, I see nothing wrong with P90X. Oh well, this could make for an awkward 20th reunion in a few weeks if we both go. A former Beachbody Coach also gives good details into the pyramid scheme nature of the company. According to her, the focus is not on nutrition or fitness, but classes instead include: What is extremely fishy is the Shakeology product.
Before I cover it allow me to explain why pricing matters in an MLM. This is a good question and few people seem to grasp it initially. Everyone has to buy 10 Morally indefensible and environmentally unsustainable a month for personal use to participate in the program.
Just find three people who find three people who find three people…. The pens get used. No recruitment revenue, only product commissions. This is an extreme example, but if you look at the world of MLM, there are some pretty big name companies out there that somewhat fit this mold on a less cut and dry basis.
Back to Shakeology Anyone who has read my ViSalus article knows this is a red flag.
Unless you are the CEO of company making millions this is exception use of your time. There are many ingredients. I found a nutritional label herewhich is worth looking at. It criticizes Shakeology in quite a few places, but gives it an overall thumbs up for ingredient choices.
His conclusion is interesting: No liquid meal replacement satisfies the need to eat and chew solid food, which also stimulates the release of digestive enzymes in saliva… I do not recommend any of these products as a route to supreme good health.
However, if you are going to drink a meal replacement, opt for Shakeology by Team Beachbody, it seems to be way better than the others in terms of the quality of the ingredients. As we covered earlier, pricing does matter in MLM.
This is where Shakeology starts to fall apart. People typically eat three meals a day. If you use the Subscribe and Save option, the price comes down to 50 cents a serving. Yes, I know Shakeology Coaches are going to try to rip me apart for the comparison saying that Carnation is full of bad ingredients.
If you are looking to get into shape the important things are calories, protein, carbs, fiber, etc. Vega One has double the fiber and an Omega 3 blend, which arguable makes it better at a much lower cost.
The comment also gives good details into the pyramid scheme nature of the company. That buys a lot of Beachbody workouts, time with a personal trainer, or other things that will help you get in shape.
Sometimes I get crazy and add flax seed. It tastes great and costs probably around 50 cents a serving… again a fraction of Shakeology. So for the health nuts that have a problem with the Carnation Breakfast option, this is another option that should eliminate all health questions.
Finally here are some other cheaper alternatives to look into: To summarize, it seems like Shakeology tastes so terrible that you need to mask it with a plethora of other ingredients.
It is so expensive that the pricing at a restaurant is famous in a movie for being outrageous. It misrepresents itself as a meal replacement when it is really nothing of the sort at only calories.
In only becomes a meal replacement when you add the other ingredients… at which point you might as well just had the meal. Beachbody Bummer has a great chart about how absurd Shakeology pricing is … Pricing for calories: What Can you Expect to Earn as Beachbody Coach When someone presents you with a business opportunity it is always wise to crunch the numbers.
