MY EXPERIENCE WITH SHAKEOLOGY® (INCLUDING A PRODUCT REVIEW)
The best way for me to tell you about Shakeology® is to include a product review I posted into the TEAM XCELLENT FITNESS thread on the Beachbody® Message Board (HERE is the link to my TEAM thread). For a list of Shakeology® Frequently Asked Questions, click HERE.
This is a product that is intended as a meal-replacement type shake. Beachbody® advertises Shakeology® as "your healthiest meal of the day." After using this product for 170+ days now, and mixing it up a TON of different ways, I tend to agree. I like Shakeology® for a variety of reasons, one being it's versatility. On it's own, it's a serviceable meal-replacement (17 grams protein, 17 grams carbs, 70+ nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids). But, when mixed with OTHER ingredients, WOW, it really can become a SUPER drink.
For example, one of my favorite ways to mix it up is what I call the "Gorilla." Along with (1) chocolate, Shakeology® packet, I mix in 6 oz. COLD water, 6 oz. skim milk, (1) banana, 2 tbsp Omega-3 peanut butter and (1) scoop chocolate Whey Isolate protein powder. The result: approx. 520 calories, 57 grams protein, 50 carbs and 13 grams of fat, and that isn't even considering all the vitamins, minerals, nutrients and amino acids! Someone find me a healthier alternative to that "meal replacement" and I'll listen up!
Shakeology'® has also reduced the need for me to take a multi-vitamin, saving me $29.99 every month or so (I had been taking Vitamin Shoppe brand Ultimate Male Gold).
The other BIG benefit I'VE noticed (and many others have too) is the great digestive regularity and digestive cleansing Shakeology® has done for me. Higher protein diets typically lead to constipation, so this can be something to consider for everyone doing the 50/30/20 ratios.
Shakeology® isn't cheap, I'm aware of that. But, your P90X® "time" is probably, health-wise, the most important 90 days of your life. I've said it before, I'll say it again: You're trying to build a RACE CAR - you can't build a BMW with Hyundai parts! Period. My advice would be to get Shakeology® on Home Direct (auto-delivery every 30 days, auto billing = FREE shipping). Try it during the duration of your program, and it you don't see/feel the amazing benefits, you can cancel at any time.
Bottom Line (5 stars max):

Price: 3.5 stars, up to 4.5 stars though with Club membership and Home Direct (if you want the best, sometimes you gotta pay the price!)
