Shakeology vs. Isagenix

In this edition of Shakeology vs. we will compare Isagenix. If you have never heard of Isagenix, it is also a meal replacement shake that founders John Anderson and Jim and Kathy Coover have created to try and help the obesity problem around the United States. It comes in two main flavors: chocolate and vanilla.

The positives of Isagenix is that it contains 23 grams of protein per serving (compared to Shakeology’s 18 grams of protein per serving). Isagenix, like Shakeology, also contains many naturally occurring ingredients which set them apart from other meal replacements. However, I have not found other components that set Isagenix apart from Shakeology.

On the negative side, Isagenix contains 1100% more fat than Shakeology (6 grams compared to less than half a gram). It also contains more cholesterol and sodium than is found in Shakeology and contains 240 calories per serving when Shakeology only has 150 calories per serving.

Isagenix lacks to potency of the vitamins and minerals that Shakeology contains. Isagenix has only 40% of the daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C versus 300% in Shakeology.  It lacks significance of other vitamins contained in every Shakeology drink such as Vitamin B1, B2, and B3. You would actually have to drink 2-4 Isagneix shakes to get the same concentration of vitamins and minerals found in just 1 Shakeology shake.

I do feel that Isagenix is one of the better meal replacement shakes, but it just does not compare to Shakeology. Shakeology is a step above the rest.

Shakeology vs. Body By Vi

Before I say anything…lets let the nutrition labels do all the taking. I encourage you to click the labels to enlarge.


Body By Vi

    • 90 Calories
    • Tri-sorb Protein 15g
    • 15 mg Cholesterol
    • 75 mg Sodium



    • 140 Calories
    • Whey Protein Isolate 17g
    • 15 mg Cholesterol
    • 100 mg Sodium

Let Me Make It Simple For You:

As I searched and searched, I couldn’t find too much information for the Body By Vi nutrition shake. The only placed to really find any information was the Body By Vi site and even there I couldn’t find any nutrition label, any nutrition facts, or any ingredients. It was almost like they were trying to keep this information from me. Shakeology on the other hand had plenty of information all of the web. Just searching Shakeology, I found everything from labels, to facts, to ingredients, to success stories, to doctors opinions. Nothing seemed “hidden”.

All I really did find about Body By Vi was this new protein the shakes contain. They call it Tri-Sorb Protein. Is supposedly “has the highest quality whey available, whey hydrosolate along with the whey protein isolate and non GMO soy with the isoflavones removed” and absorbs. Other than this, it just seems to have all of the basic vitamins and minerals as all the other meal shakes.

Shakeology on the other hand is full of healthy ingredients. It contains 17g of Whey Protein Isolate per serving. Along with whey protein, Shakeology contains over 70 high-quality ingredients that are all natural and nothing is artificial. As the labels show, many of these vitamins and minerals are over 100% of the daily value (Body By Vi is mostly 30% of the daily value). If you want more information about the ingredients of Shakeology and where they come from click here.

Now I know what you are thinking. If Shakeology is a better product, then why would you put the total number of calories in the description? (Shakeology = 140 cal. per serving, Body By Vi = 90 cal. per serving). Well lets get real here. These are meal replacement shakes. That means you are substituting them for your meal. Are you really going to tell me that a 90 calorie meal is HEALTHY? (On the Body Bi Vi website they actually say the 90 calories is a “healthy snack”, so they are comparing a snack to other meal replacements). Yes, you will obviously lose weight when you starve yourself. However, if you are using it to lose weight, there is probably one reason you are over weight…you love food. So if you are only taking in 90 calories for one meal, you are going to make up for that (because you are still hungry) somewhere else, with unhealthy calories. But, don’t worry, you are getting enough protein. Shakeology gives you enough calories (250-300 if you add milk and some fruit or organic peanut butter, perfect for a meal) AND gives you a lot more nutrients.

Lastly, you are probably still looking at the prices. Body By Vi costs a little less than $2 a meal while Shakeology is $4 a meal ($3 if you are a coach). All I can say is…you get what you pay for. If you are looking for something that has all the nutrients you need to get fit and healthy you are going to have to pay the extra dollar. However, if you are satisfied with a product that has just as much nutrients as many of the store brand meal shakes (Slim Fast, Muscle Milk, etc., do the research), $2 a meal is perfect.

New Tropical Flavor

I am sorry to say, but it took you years to get to where you are today. It is going to take a lot of effort to get to where you want to go. It’s like getting a tattoo. If someone is trying to offer you a cheap deal, I will guarantee  l you that you tattoo (which will be with you forever) is not going to look very good. Put in the money and effort now and you will be happy for life. The End.

Did I mention that Body By Vi uses an artificial sweetener?

Shakeology vs. Slim Fast

In this segment of “Shakeology vs.” we will explore the comparison between Shakeology and the well known Slim Fast. They are both advertised as the same type of product, they are both meal replacement shakes. This means that you are supposed to be able to substitute them both as one of your meals and get everything you need for that meal in the shake. HOWEVER, does this really work? Let’s go exploring…

The first BIG difference between the two are the ingredients used in creating the different shakes. The first (of MANY) differences is in the sweetener. Slim Fast contains artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose (Splenda), and acesulfame potassium. These sweeteners are actually sweeter than sugar and give a high spike in insulin to the body (also detrimental to diabetics). This spike in sugar (energy) causes the body to store it as fat. It also inhibits the body of “feeling full”, leading to food cravings, increased carbohydrate consumption, and ultimately weight gain. (Just ask, or do your research, for other problems with artificial sweeteners)

Shakeology contains Yacon which is a plant that grows in the Andes of Peru. This plant contains inulin which tastes sweet, but is not digestible and simply passes through the body. This means Yacon contains about half the calories as a regular sugar source. Secondly, Yacon contains chemicals that promote the production of healthy probiotics in the body, which contribute to better digestion and colon heath.

Shakeology Nutrition Label

Another difference between Shakeology and Slim Fast is that Slim Fast overly processed. This means that many of the ingredients in Slim Fast are artificial, which takes away much of the biological values of the ingredients, long story short: you aren’t getting all the nutrition your body needs, so your body continues to cry out, “FEED ME, FEED ME”. Shakeology, on the other hand, is as nutrient dense as you can get. It contains of 70 natural ingredients that are carefully extracted from the earth. Without all the processing, Shakeology gives you ALL of the nutrients your body needs allowing your body to be satisfied after every meal.

To conclude (before I ramble on for hours), Slim Fast contains more calories (190, and as we learned, they are mainly empty calories), more fat (6g), more carbs (25g), and less protein (10g). Shakeology only contains 140 calories, 1 gram of fat, 17 grams of carbs, and has 18 grams of protein per serving. I would have to say that the victory goes to Shakeology.

This can all be found in one serving of Shakeology
