My Review of The Lady Shake Weight Loss Shake
The one thing I really struggle with is lunch. Finding something that is healthy – but not heavy – and convenient. Because if I don’t have lunch, I end up eating chocolate peanuts and a family-sized barbecue chips at 3pm – and that doesn’t help my waist line at all!
I love the convenience of weight loss shakes – and if they do their job correctly (ie are filling and palatable) then they are the perfect light lunch for people too busy to cook like me. The thing is – many weight loss shakes have a nasty texture – and some textures really make me sick. So I purchased the Coffee Flavoured Lady Shake to give it a go and give an honest review of how I found it.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT A PAID REVIEW.
First of All – Why I chose The Lady Shake Coffee Flavour?
Seriously it is what I always go for – I’m not a fan of chocolate flavoured shakes – and I like to compare all the other weight loss shakes so I stick to the one flavour I really love! Plus caffeine!
The Lady Shake Review: How it Mix’s?
I mixed one scoop of The Lady Shake mix with 300ml of cold water. You can use milk instead and I think skim milk would actually give a really delicious end result. The water-based one wasn’t bad – I do add ice as then it tastes like an iced coffee and I do find that adding ice to weight loss shakes makes them a bit more palatable. I always mix my weight loss shakes in a blender – I find it mixes well and blends the ice into the mix.
The Lady Shake Review: Taste?
Quite nice. It is sweet, but not too sweet. Has a nice coffee flavour but not too strong. Sure – it is no iced coffee that you would buy from the shop – but it is drinkable and pleasant. The fact that I can drink the whole lot without even a thought about heaving is excellent!
The Lady Shake Review: Texture?
Hmmm even though I mixed it with ice, the The Lady Shake texture is still a little ‘gritty’. It kinda tastes like those shakes your Mum made you when you were a kid to fatten you up – you know the ones with Weetbix… but not THAT gritty.
But on a positive note – because The Lady Shake is thick – it does fill you up. It was very filling and I was certainly not hungry after drinking this – and it contains LOADS of fibre which is one of the most important thing in weight loss shakes – because if it doesn’t have enough fibre, you will be hungry an hour later.
I still think having The Lady Shake with milk would be better.
The Only Downfalls of Weight Loss Shakes?
Now I have tried A LOT of weight loss shakes over the years – I do love reviewing them honestly and faithfully. But I’m yet to find one that doesn’t make you have disgusting farts at day three of drinking them. This one is no exception. I could power a small city. I do recommend taking something for gut health if you are thinking of doing the whole weight loss shake journey. It really does help with the flatulence.
The Lady Shake Review: My Final Opinion
- For taste, I give The Lady Shake 7/10. With skim milk instead of water I give a 8.5/10
- For texture, I give The Lady Shake a 6/10
- Satisfaction Factor I give The Lady Shake 8/10
- For healthiness, I give The Lady Shake a 9/10 (it has a five-star review)
I think The Lady Shake is a great option for replacing one meal per day. Sure it isn’t the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth – but it is a weight-loss shake and at the end of the day, we can’t expect something that is so low in calories to taste like the full fat and full-sugar version. As far as weight loss shakes go – The Lady Shake is one of the best and lowest in sugar!
