exante vs Shakeology: A Complete Meal Replacement Shake Comparison

exante vs Shakeology: A Complete Meal Replacement Shake Comparison

If your current goal is getting fit and losing weight, we want to help.

Our mission at exante is helping you achieve your ideal shape; not just for your wedding, your vacation next summer, or your 25 year high school reunion, but for life!

We believe meal replacement shakes are one of the easiest and most effective ways to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Since our main goal is helping you, that’s exactly what we’re doing with this post. We’ve done our homework and have compared ourselves with Shakeology, another meal replacement shake company.

But, we’re not the only company out there who’s created shakes, recipes, and other means of support to get you into the shape you’ve always wanted to be in.

We’re not going to tell you which to choose — we’re going to let the facts do the talking, and hope that once you see them laid out you can decide which path is the straight and narrow one leading you on the way to your ideal shape.

Nutritional Value

Let’s be honest, nutrition is important. If you’re going to replace a meal or two each day, you need to know that you’re receiving enough vitamins, minerals, calories, fiber, and protein to maintain good health.

Since exante and Shakeology have multiple meal replacement shakes, let’s compare the nutritional value of 1 scoop of exante and Shakeology.

exante

A chocolate exante Shake contains 120 calories, 3 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugar, and 11 grams of protein. In terms of your recommended daily value of vitamins and minerals, this shake offers 19 vitamins and minerals.

In order to create a shake that is low in calories and sugar, but also tastes great, exante Shake uses artificial sweeteners.

Shakeology

A Shakeology chocolate shake contains 160 calories, 2 grams of fat, 17 grams of carbs, 6 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugars, and 17 grams of protein and 23 essential vitamins and minerals. Additionally Shakeology is filled with some exotic plants and herbs, like chia, rose hips, ashwagandha, and yacon root.

 

All Shakeology shakes are free from artificial sweeteners and flavors.

 Craving Control

If you’re going to shed some pounds, you can’t eat every time you feel hungry (or “think” you’re hungry) and you can’t give in to your sweet tooth with a Coke and chocolate chip cookie every time you get a hankering. Luckily, exante and Shakeology each have products that work as hunger-blockers.

exante

exante Shakes control your hunger and cravings for up to three hours with a blend. We use a mixture of fiber and Slendesta, a protein extract from a white potato that’s used as an appetite suppressant. Proteinase inhibitor 2, or PI2, stimulates the release of cholecystokinin (CCK), which tells your brain that you’re full so you quit eating sooner.

Shakeology

The fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals used in Shakeology shakes are what block your feelings of hunger. These ingredients can curb your appetite up to three hours.
