What Is The Man Shake?

The Man Shake is a weight loss shake produced by an Australian company named Belmac Investments Pty Limited (trading as The Man Shake). The company was founded by popular sportsman Adam MacDougall.

One pouch of The MAN Shake costs $34.99 and will last for 7 days; it is available via the official The Man Shake website, as well as places like Woolworths and Chemist Warehouse.

This particular product has allegedly been formulated for men who are looking to lose weight without having to make drastic lifestyle changes.

Does The Man Shake Work?

Based on our research into this product, we do not believe it will deliver fast weight loss results for the majority of users, however it’s still a decent meal replacement shake for those just looking to lower their daily caloric intake.

Firstly, it’s important to note that this shake isn’t a “miracle” fat burning shake. To clear up any misconceptions, this product doesn’t contain any clinically proven fat burning or metabolism boosting ingredients.

The product also doesn’t have any ingredients that promote satiety over the long-term, so users may find themselves hungry soon after consuming the shake (though this will be on an individual basis for the most part).

We believe that the only way users will see tangible weight loss results from this product is if they replace at least two meals per day, while actively monitoring their caloric intake.

The Pros & Cons Of The Man Shake

Below we’ve listed everything we personally think is either a positive or negative:

The Pros

  • Useful to be used as a meal replacement.
  • Contains ingredients that are good for general health.

The Cons

  • Doesn’t contain any fat burning or metabolism boosting ingredients.
  • Shakes may not suppress appetite levels for too long.
  • Quite expensive as one pouch only contains a 7-day supply.

Are There Any The Man Shake Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following The Man Shake review testimonials via customers online:

Full of artificial sweetener. Be careful if you suffer from migraines. Taste is not good.
I tried the shake for two weeks and I did lose weight. However, I didn’t realize it had artificial sweetener and suffered the worst migraine ever. Products that have artificial sweetener should be labeled more clearly.

Flavours not bad only tried choc and banana . choc mixes better than banana for some reason but I like it . really you could get same results with simply eating healthy but this is convenient so give it a real try before making excuses . oh and if you don’t exercise than your never really going to be healthy.

Our Final Verdict On The Man Shake

To conclude our The Man Shake review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by. It’s not a terrible meal replacement shake, we just feel that, for the price consumers are paying, there should be some clinically-proven fat burning ingredients included in the formula.
