If you have not ever heard of Shakeology, then the recent news about the price increase won't mean much to you. Team Beachbody announced that starting April 1st, the price of the regular Chocolate and Greenberry flavored shakes will increase by $10. According to the Coach 411 News website, the price increase is as follows:
Unfortunately, this is one battle we can’t fight forever. We were forced to make a tough decision: Lose the FREE shipping guarantee and potentially move to cheaper ingredients OR raise the price of Chocolate (regular) and Greenberry by a mere $10/month (33 cents/day)? Considering we’ll never sacrifice the integrity of our ingredients, the choice was clear.
Effective April 1, 2013, the new price of Chocolate (regular) and Greenberry Shakeology will be $129.95.
What This Means to Current HD Customers
Those who are already receiving HD (home direct) shipments of Shakeology will not experience a price change. They will be locked in at the current $119.95 price it has always been. New customers can also lock in their price by ordering Shakeology on home direct before April 1st.
Why is This Nutritional Supplement So Expensive?
Believe me, this is a question that is asked time and time again. I guess it's because most people just don't believe a supplement in powder form, that comes in a bag, should cost that much. What I tell people who ask is that the product is high-quality. It contains no refined sugar or caffeine. The ingredients are derived from whole food sources and it is probably one of the top meal replacement shakes on the market.
It tastes good, especially when blended with frozen fruit, and it is quite filling which makes it even better when using it as a meal replacement. Other possible benefits include:
- Weight loss
- Reduction in junk food cravings
- Increased energy
- Lower cholesterol
Many people have managed to lose a lot of weight by using it as a meal replacement. I've personally lost 10 pounds by replacing one meal a day with it (for me it was either breakfast or lunch.) Keep in mind that I ate healthy and exercised.
Overall, it is an excellent product for supplementing a healthy diet. It doesn't have to be used just for weight loss. I for one like the ingredients (primarily the superfoods and antioxidants.) Paying $129.95 for a 30-day supply can seem outrageous for some and an investment for others. It all depends on what you need and what you can afford.
I also want to mention that Team Beachbody offers a 30-day money back guarantee which is referred to as the Bottom-of-the-Bag guarantee. What it means is that you can use up an entire bag, return it within 30 days, even if the bag is empty. You will receive a full refund, no questions asked, less shipping & handling.
