Shaklee 180 Questions & Answers

Shaklee 180 Q & AWhat makes this program special?

The Shaklee 180® products have been formulated with lean protein and leucine to help you retain muscle. That means they are designed so you lose the fat, not the muscle. Muscle is what helps keep your metabolism up, which helps you with weight management. Shaklee 180® is designed to burn fat, so you see inch loss and pound loss which can improve the proportion of muscle to fat in your body. There is a reason muscle is called “lean”—pound for pound, muscle takes up less space than fat. Even when weight stays the same, you will notice your clothes fitting better! *


I don’t do shakes. They’re boring and don’t taste good.  

The Life Shakes actually taste great, and you get to customize them with fruit, vegetables, and spices. We can share lots of recipes from Shaklee 180® customers. But if you are really not a “shake person” you may enjoy the Shaklee 180® Meal-in-a-Bar instead. There are great flavors, like Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Cinnamon.

How fast will I lose weight?

Safe weight loss is widely recognized to be 1 to 2 lbs. per week. The Shaklee 180® Program is designed to help you attain a lifestyle to help you stay at a healthy weight for the long term. *

Will I be hungry?

Life Shakes and Shaklee 180® bars are packed with protein and fiber to keep you feeling full. We also offer protein-rich snacks and a tea to keep your energy up. *

What is leucine and how does it work?

Leucine is an amino acid your body uses to make proteins. It is an essential amino acid, which means your body cannot produce it. You must get essential amino acids from the foods you eat. *

Can the Shaklee 180® Program be used by children?

Life Shakes and Shaklee 180® bars can be used by children as part of a healthy daily diet. We do not recommend children, pregnant women, or nursing women use Shaklee 180® Energizing Tea because of its caffeine content, or the Metabolic Boost* because of its herbal ingredients. *

Why are the Life Shakes made with soy protein?

Unlike many other vegetable proteins, soy contains a complete protein profile, meaning it has adequate proportions of all the essential amino acids your body needs to build muscle and perform other crucial functions. Shaklee has a long history of using soy protein. Shaklee uses high quality non-GMO soy protein. Soy protein has been shown to have health benefits, especially for your heart.  *  For those who prefer, Life Shakes are available in a non-soy formula.

Why do the Life Shakes have sugars and carbohydrates?

Most of the foods we eat contain carbohydrates and sugars. For example, one medium apple has 25 g of carbohydrates and 19 g of sugars. Carbohydrates and sugars are part of a healthy diet. They are key sources of energy for the body. The Shaklee 180® Program provides healthy proportions of protein, carbohydrates, and fat over the course of the day. *

What is stevia and why is it in the Life Shakes?

Stevia is a natural, no calorie sweetener made from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. It is used to sweeten the shakes.

How does the program teach healthy habits?

As part of the Shaklee 180® Program, you get access to articles, recipes, and tools to help you to help you live a healthy lifestyle. Plus, you are personally supported by us. If you have any questions, you can speak to us, and if we don’t know the answer we will contact the experts at Shaklee.

What Good is Fiber if You Don't Digest it?

Even though we don't digest fiber, it provides us with a lot of benefits. Fiber can also help you feel full. When you are eating a high-fiber diet, it requires more chewing time. That helps your brain know that you are full. Once the fiber reaches your stomach, it also helps you feel satisfied and full longer than a meal without fiber. Meals that are high in fiber are also less calorie dense (remember fiber contains almost no calories). *
