There seems to be a lot of buzz going around lately with the top two meal replacement shakes on the market and this is the reason I am doing a Shakeology vs Body By Vi Shake comparison. I thought it would be a good idea to see how the Body By Vi Shake measures up to Shakeology. I’m a huge Beachbody fan and Shakeology lover. I will still be unbiased towards the Shakeology competitor. The reality is both companies are trying to end the obesity trend in this country. So with that said they are both already winners in my book. Doing a Shakeology vs Body By Vi Shake comparison for the sake of argument, lets see how they measure up head to head. And please take note that this is in my own observation and opinion. I drink Chocolate Shakeology so all comparisons will be to the Chocolate flavor.
So How about we begin and see who wins the Shakeology vs Body by Vi Shake challenge.

The Ingredients Verdict
Winner Shakeology – This is really close but I have to go with Shakeology in terms of ingredients, especially being that they are all natural. Both are very nutritious and you can’t go wrong with either one but I feel Shakeology out does the Vi Shake in this category.
Shakeology vs Body By Vi Shake Cost
Shakeology will cost you retail of $119.95 plus shipping & tax for a 30 day supply. Wholesale will run you $89.89 plus a $14.95 Monthly Distributor Fee.
The Body By Vi Shake will cost you $49 plus shipping & tax for a 30 day supply (1 shake per day). For the benefit of weight loss it’s recommended to drink 2 shakes per day which will cost $99 plus shipping & tax for a 30 day supply.
Both products come with very nice incentive programs.
The Shakeology incentive program requires you order on Home Direct (HD). When ordered on HD you will receive Free Shipping, two Free Bonus Workouts and a Shaker cup. Free shipping will save you about $10 and the value of the workouts and shaker come to be about $45.
The other Shakeology incentive is to become a Distributor, called a Beachbody Coach. After the initial sign up fee of $39.95 you will save 25% off of Shakeology bringing the cost down to $89.89 and will still benefit from the bonus items mentioned above and free shipping. This may be the best way to go when staying on Home Direct for a long period of time.
The Body By Vi Shake incentive program is a bit different. First there is no free shipping program. BUT, if you refer 3 friends on the same or higher package you are paying for, you will no longer be billed for your product (except shipping). Called “find 3 and yours is free” program. A nice incentive for both customers and distributors.
The Cost Verdict
Winner Vi Shake – Clearly the Vi Shake is much cheaper at only $49! So if you are only looking for the lower cost of the two the Vi Shake is the winner. But you need to note that to use the Vi Shake as a weight loss supplement you would need to order their “Shape Kit” package which will cost $99. I also feel the incentive package is better, from both a customer and distributors stand point.
Shakeology vs Body By Vi Shake Quality
Both of these shakes are of the highest quality. To compare the two I went with foodfacts.com for some comparisons.
Shakeology has a score 97 of 100 on foodfacts.com which is one of the highest scores in the entire database. Shakeology’s good news is that is high in vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium, iron and protien. The only bad news is that Shakeology contains added sugars (as stated from foodfacts.com). The added sugars are actually fructose which is natural.
The Body By Vi Shake acheived a score of 89 of 100. The good news about the Vi Shake is it contains high amounts of iron, protein and other vitamins. There really is not much in the effect of “bad news” (according to foodfacts.com) But if you look closer you will find that in order to achieve the taste they are using some artificial sweeteners.
The Quality Verdict
Winner Shakeology – Numbers don’t lie. Shakeology has the highest numbers in the entire Foodfacts.com database. Neither one of these really have much in them to complain about, and they both put up a good fight. Overall Shakeology out weighs Vi Shake.
Shakeology vs Body By Vi Shake Taste
Please remember this is my own opinion here. Like I stated before I drink Shakeology everyday and I add it to my breakfast. I really like the taste of Shakeology, I think it tastes great. And I’m talking about Chocolate here. Many people will add fruit and peanut butter too help with the taste or to add variety. I actually like it straight out of the bag with water and ice. It’s a nice chocolatey flavor. When you think about the tastes of these kind of shakes you need to think in the lines of supplements, so in the world of supplements Shakeology is “deliscious”. It’s not a chocolate frosty from Wendy’s.
For comparison I actually ordered some of the Vi Shake. They have a motto that is “The shake that tastes like cake”. My first impression was, who wants to drink cake. Nonetheless I ordered from someone I know who is a distributor. The first thing I did was smell it (weird huh) and it smells just like cake. I mixed it straight with water and ice just like I do for my Shakeology. I was very surprised in the taste. It tastes like cake, a sweet cake. I have to be honest and say I like to taste over Shakeology. I have now added the Vi Shake to my diet, I drink Shakeology for breakfast and the Vi Shake for an occasional evening snack.
The Taste verdict
Winner Vi Shake – I hope I don’t get to much flak here. As I am an avid Shakeology lover and will continue to drink it. The Vi Shake tastes better. And there are many more varieties with the Vi Shake. No matter how you mix Chocolate Shakeology it’s still going to be chocolate tasting. Where the Vi Shake come in a cream flavor it can be altered to chocolate, banana, strawberry and so much more. I have to give taste to the Vi Shake.
Shakeology vs Body By Vi Shake Nutrition
Body By Vi Shake:
The Nutrition Verdict
Winner Shakeology. – If you watched both videos you can see for yourself how they compare to each other. Again I feel both bring a lot of benefits to the table but if you take the videos head too head I feel the products/ingredients in the Shakeology will seem to be the healthier of the two.
Beachbody vs Body By Vi Shake Final Thoughts
Again both of these meal replacement shakes are top notch and you can have amazing results with either one. It’s going to come down to your overall desire and what you feel better off using. I will continue to drink them both, I can’t deny the results I have personally had with Shakeology (lost more than 20 pounds) and it’s helped with a few other issues I have had in the past. I’m confident adding the Vi Shake will help me even more and I look forward to even better results with me Beachbody workouts. So my over all winner in this challenge goes to Shakeology.
