I’d heard that was supposed to be a pretty decent meal replacement shake. And since it’s cheap (which is explained more below), I figured I’d review it. Here are my thoughts.
IdealShape is one of the most affordable shakes that I’ve looked at. You can get a 30 day supply for just $50, which breaks down to around $1.50 per shake. That’s much cheaper than a six-inch sub at Subway, so I think even Jared would approve.
With IdealShape you get two flavors: chocolate and vanilla. I tried the chocolate. It wasn’t like drinking a Yoohoo or anything, but it did have a reasonable chocolatey flavor. But in order to make it taste a little better, I mixed in some almond milk. That helped. Overall, the flavor didn’t blow me away like other shakes. So I’d say it was just okay.
APPETITE BLOCKER: B
IdealShape contains Slendesta, which is supposed to be an all-natural hunger blocker extracted from white potatoes. Now I don’t know the science of potatoes, but I felt hungry sooner after having one of these shakes compared to some of the others. I’m not sure if anyone else had this same reaction, but my appetite didn’t stay as blocked as I wanted it to be.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE: A-
I’m not sure where all of IdealShape’s chocolate taste came from. It certainly wasn’t from the 2 grams of sugar, which was pretty low for a meal replacement shake. The 120 calories (30 from fat) was also really reasonable. And when you factor in the 21 vitamins added into the mix, this is a pretty nutritious shake.
If you’re just starting out with meal replacement shakes, IdealShape would be a great place to begin. There are better shakes, but this one is pretty cheap. So worst case scenario, even if this shake isn’t right for you, it won’t break the bank. If you’re interested, you can .
