Shakeology/Beachbody???

There are several 20-something's in my area who have had great success with Shakeology & Beachbody.

They've completely revamped their lifestyles. Better food, exercise, support groups & shakeology.

Any insight on this product?

I'm thinking they probably would have had the same success with better food, exercise & support groups.

I use it and love it. Shakeology is not a weightloss shake.

I have a friend who is a Coach for Beachbody.  She loves Shakeology.

I agree.

It's incredibly expensive. You could make your own shakes, with the same or better nutritional content, for a fraction of the cost.

 Me too. I would say that for most of the products and programs that are similar to this though. I believe similar results can be achieved without the expensive products if you are willing to put some effort into it.

I used to be a Beachbody coach/Shakeology user. Unless you have a downline, it's expensive. I have a girlfriend who recently tried it and found the same thing - it's expensive, if you don't implement it, it won't work.

I do like some of the workout programs. With that said, I have found that cleaning up my diet, being more active, and drinking more water (which is essentially what Beachbody tells you to do) has been a lot more beneficial to me than Beachbody was.

I was a coach for BB years ago....I never used Shakeology and refused to do so as I don't like processed shakes. 

The workouts on the other hand, only work if you do the work. They are fantastic programs. I've done many of them and really enjoy them.

This. 

Supplement lines are there to make money, period. Just look up the qualifications needed to be a beachbody coach, absolutely nothing. No qualified personal trainer or nutritionist (as in people with actual knowledge) would be caught dead selling that crap.

save yourself some money and get a good multivitamin. Incorporate more protein into your diet. if you can't, look for a decent protein shake that doesn't cost so much. Then exercise, eat right, get some friends who want to do the same.
