Meal Replacement Shakes Comparable to Shakeology

The users’ opinion about Shakeology is dualistic. This product is rather effective and popular, although the overestimated price of the shake scares off many consumers. The meal replacement supplement is designed to suppress hunger. It should be noted that the shake is good in this function. There is a few feedbacks that relate to poor efficiency of Shakeology in appetite suppression.

Such good performance is achieved due to high amount of calories (130) and protein (16 grams) supplied to the body. The other nutritional data of Shakeology include 14 grams of carbs, 3 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of fat. Unfortunately, the sugar content is rather high. Besides, it comes from fructose that can be called a healthy ingredient.

All other components of Shakeology are natural. The product is free of soy or GMO. By the way, the protein comes from six sources, five of which are plant protein. Whey protein isolate is the only dairy protein source.

The price of such formula is too high if compared to other MR shakes in the market. Although, Shakeology does not provide any special or exquisite ingredients, 30 servings of this shake cost around $130. For this reason, it is advised to review other products comparable to Shakeology.

Yoli YES Shake

Unlike Shakeology, this protein shake by Yoli offers a superb protein formula called PuraWhey. It consists of whey protein and supplies 12 grams of this component to the body. The number of ingredients is not huge, however, most of them are natural.

As for the shake’s characteristics, they are quite decent. YES Shake provides 80 calories, 4 grams of fiber, less than 1 gram of fat, 2 grams of sugar, and 9 grams of carbs. According to these values, Yoli Shake is a great solution for weight management purposes.

The users’ opinion is also different, since many people complain about bad taste of the shake, while others are satisfied with its high performance and great effect. The price of YES shake is also an issue, because users are not willing to spend $80 for 30 servings.

Vega One

Since the largest share of Shakeology’s protein is plant-based, we decided to review a shake with plant protein. Vega One shake is such type of product. The protein sources include chlorella vulgaris, hemp, pea, and sacha inchi. Nevertheless, the quality of the protein is unsatisfactory that is confirmed by consumers. 

In general, Vega One is not bad solution for people who need natural meal replacement product. However, the shake is rather expensive, because the price of $70 accounts for 20 servings.

18 Shake

This shake includes the best qualities of Shakeology and excludes its flaws. As a result, the users obtain a great meal replacement solution with natural ingredients and high performance. The protein source of 18 Shake is whey.

The shake provides 90 calories that is quite enough to substitute a full meal. In addition, each serving contains 15 grams of protein, less than 1 gram of sugar, 5 grams of fiber, and 8 grams of carbs. Such formula that costs around $50 is the best solution for your diet.
