I purchased the shakes after reading the reviews online. I did not do an in dept research though. Few great things said about the company made me decide what I would be going with. And, I repent that I took that decision. These shakes are awful. Not just the taste, but the way it made me feel afterwards. I have never tasted anything like these.
I have tried many such products before and the last one was pretty good. My habit of trying something new everything made me take this blunder decision. It happens sometimes with me. But, the reason I am writing this review is that the company is a cheat too. Not just the shakes but what it says is completely fake.
First of all, the company makes you feel that you are taking a three months subscription by offering three jars and they advertise in a way that you start believing that you are paying for three months. Now, you do receive three bottles. But, woh! These three bottles do not even last for a month. I have my calculations right.
They say that each bottle is sufficient for 16 servings. And they recommend you to take two servings each day. One for the breakfast and the other for the dinner. That means you would be completing your bottles in 8 days. So, all these three bottles will last no longer than 24 days. They do not supply for a complete month of February as well. And, they try to pretend as if they are providing for three months being so reasonable. Who are you kidding with?
This is how this company tries to act smart and thinks that they can fool everybody but for how long. Now, when I started taking these shakes, I did not feel a thing. And, the taste was sweet. It was too sweet as if someone had mixed the entire ounce of sugar in water. There was no other taste that you can feel. It was all bland just sugary. I am not sure what are they using to make these shakes so sweet.
When I mixed it with milk, there were lumps and it was difficult to mix it thoroughly. It blends better with water but the taste is worse. You would definitely choose plain water over this shake. I have no clue what makes them feel that their shakes taste like chocolate. They have this flavour and it reminded me of nothing but water and sugar. There is nothing like chocolate in the shakes.
I tried these for three days and then asked for a refund policy. I returned the remaining jars and they have not yet refunded me. This is not acceptable. Moreover, these guys won’t entertain my requests and keep hanging up on me. I tried to reach out to them many a times but have got nothing.
The taste was not alone the reason for the return of these jars. I was following all the routines as I was doing earlier. I exercise a lot and I keep tracks of all the calories I intake every day. I am a hard core fitness freak. I have maintained a weight since a long time that was difficult to beat. I have tried many products but this one was the worst. In just three days, my weight shot. I could not believe that it was because of the shakes and could make such a difference.
I checked my weight twice to be sure. After that, I left taking these shakes and my weight came down in just five days. I did not take anything apart from the diet I was following and the previous protein powder in my routine.
18 shake is the worst company and its products are a waste of time and money. You may not feel it in the first few days, but you would eventually be gaining weight overtime. The review that I read were mostly all placed by the company itself. No one can write such good things about these products which do the exactly opposite of what they promise and claim.
Please do not put yourself through such misery when you can choose the good ones out there.
