At first, I love it. Although the Glucerna brand of meal replacement shakes was developed specifically for diabetics, it may or may not be the right choice for you. Views Read Edit View history. I will mix it with water but I prefer to blend it in a blender with ice, a little low fat milk and water. Oh, and regarding some of the comments below about customer service…. I have been taking Shakeology off and on for about 2 years.
It's really quite insulting when you open a package and it's filled only half-way up. Why does this container need to be so big? Why don't they fill it with more product which they could charge more for?
This company says it's an advocate for the environment, but this container is sooo wasteful and this is excessive slack-filling to a T. The nutrition, specifically protein powder industry, has seen an increase of law suits due to this slack filling. Which is also a form of false advertising by misleading consumers. Furthermore, this is non-functional slack filling. Functional slack filling would be what you see when you open a bag of potato chips; this spaces helps to prevent damage to the product.
I'm not going to be suing this company by any means but there are currently two class action lawsuits filed for excessive slack filling. If you're going to be an advocate for the environment, manage your containers better. There is no reason this container needs to be so large. A sweet little company, made in the USA: I needed a shake that came in a planet friendly bag, bulk options, tasted good, lots of extra nutrients, legit enough to be a meal replacement, whole foods not chemicals, and preferably vegan protein.
LyfeFuel is all those things are more. I am 36 year old female 5'7'' lbs in decent shape but was feeling really bloated and worn down. I had been consistently working out with my friends but not losing weight or feeling more energetic like they were. So I went to see my doctor. We decided I'd take a bit of a "solid food" break and do some elimination diet type testing.
I never feel like I'm starving and Im losing weight. This is a big deal. I researched the hell out of meal replacements. LyfeFuel is one of my favorite shakes that I reorder. Actually, out of the 7 that I ordered, only LyfeFuel and Fit really tasted good to me. No bitter stevia after taste It really is weird when your trying to convince yourself Vega taste likes mocha.. I mainly use this now because it has a whole foods, comes in bag less waste , has a great nutrient profile and bonus nutrients that mean I save money on other supplements , its a kickass small "made in the usa" company, the bulk discount makes it more affordable, and I just like it.
Both flavors I tried were comforting and filling, without being sickly sweet. I used to mix it in the blender, but all the extra bubbles were making my bloating worse. Once I switched to the shaker bottle, everything was great. I actually like the little blobs that don't completely mix, it gives me little sweet nibs to chew on. LyfeFuel has helped get my tired body back up and running. I just couldn't get my act together enough to eat healthy home cooked meals a day.
I couldn't grocery shop and organize and cook and wash dishes and meal plan and food diary everything. So much organic, pricey food was going bad in my fridge.
So this little shake break is going great for my body, my stress levels, and my budget! I have tried to get away from This is great stuff. I have tried to get away from whey protein and dairy in general and this has been a great substitute. It mixes well, tastes great and digests very well! I don't get bloated at all which tends to happen with lots of meal replacements I have tried over the years.
There are a lot of plant based proteins out there that taste like dirt, and are tough on the wallet. This tastes great and is not overpriced. This to me is like a good substitute for Shakeology. It has a lot of geat clean ingredients and the taste is pretty good too. I never really mixed mine with anything but almond milk and ice and found it very satisfying.
It also agreed well with for a plant protein shake. More whey proteins don't and even some plant proteins still upset my stomach. This has been the most gently one yet. I enjoyed the shake as a smoothie with frozen fruit and green machine all natural juice with a coconut water base.
It kept me full and satisfied my cravings until lunch. I need to lose weight and think this will be a welcome addition as my go to breakfast before work.
I just made my first shake this morning, and I am absolutely impressed! I open the bag and took a sniff, I was actually a little bit worried by the way that it smelled. After mixing the powder in my shaker cup I sipped with caution. Oh my god this stuff is amazing! I'm so excited by the way it taste and how smooth it is, I just ordered another bag.
As far as results, obviously it's too early to tell but I will definitely be updating my review accordingly. As of now, I'm impressed. See all reviews. See all customer images.

If the energy provided in one shake is not enough to sustain you, consume something solid, like fruits and vegetables, to promote satiety.
