Since its release in 2003, 310 Shakes, a popular meal replacement drink produced by 310 Nutrition, has gained popularity. This is mostly due to the online buzz that the firm and users of its social media platforms have created for it.

The Science Behind 310 Shakes

Although it doesn’t specifically mention 310 Shakes, a 2003 study in the International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders found that partial meal replacement (PMR) strategies for overweight and obese people are generally beneficial. Meal replacements are almost always some sort of shake-like beverage.

Customer Feedback

The reviews section of the 310 Nutrition website is probably not the best place to find thorough, frank, and impartial reviews. In actuality, 310 Shakes received an overall rating of 4.75 stars from more than 56,000 reviewers. Hmm.

We therefore visit Amazon.com, where honesty is usual. The 310 Chocolate Shake has 214 reviews with an overall rating of 3.6 stars. The majority of reviews—nearly 60%—give it five stars, but the rest range from 1 to 4 stars. Let’s examine one from each:

Renee (2016, 5 stars) has a devoted following.

I was introduced to 310 Shake by my daughter, and I adore it. Before purchasing your items, I thoroughly researched the components; I placed an order for 2. The first thing I searched for—or should I say didn’t search for—was the amount of sugar. It’s really crucial to me that your items include less than 1 gram. Low carb and the right amount of vitamins came next. Both fell inside the range I had in mind. Although I prefer vanilla, which I was unable to find, the chocolate has a nice flavor. The calorie count is what I really like about your product; most shakes have 190 calories, however yours has 90. This is significant to me since I add fruit and raw oatmeal to my shake, which still keeps the caloric intake at a reasonable level for my breakfast and lunch. Could you imagine the 400 calories that would result from my adding fruit, vegetables, and raw oats to those other shakes? I’m trying to lose weight, after all. Once more, many thanks for a superb product.

There were 16 reviews with 1 star, and all but one or two criticized the taste. But “Mahakali” (2017, 1 star) had a lot more issues than just taste.

Powdery, dissatisfied with the business, snobby phone service, and charged me for shipping after the transaction was already complete and paid for. I dislike it when people use my card after the fact. The two-month-old formula adjustment left customers unsatisfied.

2014’s “Jack of All Trades,” rated “2 stars,” has the following criticism:

Let me start by saying that this product delivered on its promise to make me feel full after drinking, however after using it as a meal substitute for two weeks, I found that I had gained weight instead of lost it. I only gave it two stars since it: 1. tastes awful (which was actually expected because most similar products taste awful); and 2. made me feel so bloated and constipated that I didn’t even want to eat. … Conclusion: Instead of recommending this product, I would advise eating healthy foods in moderation.

310 Shake Claims

“Unlike any other meal replacement shakes you’ve seen or tried,” declares 310 Shakes. As the “the best of the best in a product that will not only enable you to lose weight but will also offer you a new lease on life—helping you establish a productive, healthier lifestyle that’s perfect for you,” 310 Nutrition asserts that its meal replacement shakes are.

That is a big assertion. What distinguishes these meal replacement shakes from the countless other comparable products? It’s their “unique patented blend of proteins, called Tri-Plex,” according to 310 Nutrition.

Each 310 Shake is available in vanilla and chocolate flavors and is loaded with protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It sounds like a no-brainer strategy to lose weight by drastically reducing your consumption to substitute this smoothie for that large lunch because it only has 90 calories per serving, which is a small portion of the typical daily 300–800 calorie meal. That’s what 310 Shake asserts as well.

You won’t find meal replacement drinks that taste as good as 310 Shakes, weight loss and fitness products that have been scientifically proven to work (and have millions of verified user reviews to back them up), or ingredient lists that are so impressive to your doctor anywhere else.

The aggressive, targeted social media marketing strategy adopted by 310 Nutrition Shake, which has millions of followers across all social media platforms, is one factor in its success. Sales have probably been significantly impacted by high-profile paid celebrity endorsers hawking 310 Shake on Facebook and Instagram, as well as by claims made by 310 Nutrition about the product being as-seen-on-TV in publications, blog posts, and videos (think TMZ, Shape, E!, and even celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton).

Support from other users as well as coaching and a “community” are important for 310 Shake.

Because you don’t have to go through the process of adopting a better lifestyle alone. The 310 Nutrition Community is an unrivaled space where you can connect with people who share your goals for greater health and discover all the tools and guidance you need. [4]

Additionally, 310 Nutrition asserts the quality of its shakes. No, it’s far superior to good:

The smoothest, creamiest shakes you’ve ever had, with a great flavor and a texture devoid of grit.

Therefore, they taste excellent (though we won’t know for sure until later). What about efficiency, though? Will 310 Shakes help you lose weight?

310 Nutrition does not guarantee a user will lose a certain amount of weight—for example, a certain number of pounds.

Since every person is unique, we are unable to estimate your exact loss. However, consumers have seen positive results when substituting a 310 Shake for one meal per day and improved results when substituting two meals per day in addition to other tried-and-true 310 weight reduction products. Many users claim that following a strict routine quickly yields results

The smoothies will promote metabolism, reduce hunger and cravings, increase energy, offer nutritional nutrients, and, lastly, “maximize your weight loss,” according to the 310 diet plan.

The 310 Shakes will maximize your weight loss, there it is. Additionally, it provides a price match versus other meal replacement shakes as well as a complete 30-day money-back guarantee (okay, technically it’s a week, but I’ll give them a week’s grace). It should be emphasized that 310 Nutrition does not assert that smoothies or other meal replacement products will work by themselves; you must also eat healthily and engage in regular exercise.

A 28-serving package of 310 Shake costs over $70. For $98 plus varying shipping, handling, and taxes, the introductory bundle comes with 310 Shake recipes e-books, a live online coaching session lasting 30 minutes, a shaker, the shake mix, and either their Thin energy drink or Metaboost supplement. There are other additional choices, such as a $250 package that includes four bags of shake mix and an additional plastic shaker

310 Shake Ingredients

Superfood greens, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, plant proteins, and amino acids are just a few of the ingredients found in 310 Shakes. But not all the greens are healthy.

310 Nutrition’s exclusive mixture TriPlex, a purported plant-based protein supplement with “immense support to aid in weight loss,” is constructed of pea, brown rice, and hemp.

The 310 smoothies don’t have added sugar, soy, or dairy, and they don’t have any artificial ingredients either. So you can relax knowing that everything you’re consuming is completely supportive of your health.

We’ll quickly look at the two supplements since they can be added to the Starter Kit.

The appetite suppressant 310 Thin contains Advantra Z from Nutratech Sciences, a supposedly “safe” form of ephedra, which 310 Nutrition claims is “clinically proven to boost the body’s metabolic rate and increase energy.”

When we previously discussed this substance, I pointed you that although it is essentially caffeine and bitter orange, which is frequently used in diet and performance-enhancing supplements, it is prohibited by the NCAA and has been linked to elevated blood pressure and an accelerated heart rate.

The 310 MetaBoost contains Capsimax Plus, which is essentially capsaicin, a derivative from hot peppers. In this instance, the active ingredients in the peppers are “microencapsulated using patented OmniBead technology, which delivers effective quantities of the active principles in the peppers while decreasing internal irritation.”

MetaBoost, of course, also contains Chromium Picolinate, Caffeine, and Green Tea Extract, all of which are known for their claims to increase energy.

The Bottom Line: Is 310 Shake Worth A Try?

Depends.

Meal replacement programs are generally secure as long as you consume protein-rich, vitamin-rich, and nutrient-rich shakes that are not “energy” drinks. And with only 90 calories each, it might work for some people if they can get beyond the taste that some people find objectionable. Although 310 Shakes are expensive, you are replacing complete meals, which are also expensive.

    I am just curious because this is the third website that I’ve seen that has sold this product……Jwows says 19.00 + shipping for starter. Than… I want to know why the starter kit is 14.00 + shipping on one website and then on ANOTHER post is $98.00 for the starter kit + shipping. So this is making me think this is a scam
    it also is making me think that most of all the good reviews that are on this product are from Company themselves.

  2. I’VE BEEN WANTING TO TRY THIS SINCE I’VE SEEN SEVERAL PEOPLE THAT I FOLLOW ON FB POST THAT THEY USE AND LOVE THIS. I FINALLY PURCHASED THE STARTER KIT, WHICH IS SMALL AND THE VARIETY SHAKES SO THAT I WOULD HAVE MORE TO TRY!

    MY FAVORITE SHAKES ARE THE CHOCOLATE, THE SALTED CARAMEL AND THE MOCA …I PUT 2 T OF PEANUT BUTTER IN EACH OF THEM!
    I DIDN’T LIKE THE MINT CHOCOLATE, BUT THEN AGAIN I NORMALLY DON’T CARE FOR THAT IN CANDY. I ALSO WASN’T TOO CRAZY ABOUT THE VANILLA, BUT I’VE ONLY TRIED IT ONCE. MAYBE I WILL LIKE IT MORE IF I ADD SOMETHING TO IT! I HAVEN’T TRIED STRAWBERRY YET, I LOVE STRAWBERRIES, BUT NOT SO SURE ABOUT A STRAWBERRY SHAKE!

    LONG STORY SHORT THEY ARE GREAT SHAKES AND EASY TO MAKE. I NORMALLY PUT CHOPPED ICE, SOME WATER, THE SHAKE POWDER AND 2 T PEANUT BUTTER IN MY VITAMIX WHICH MAKES IT LIKE A THICK SHAKE. I LOVE ALMOND MILK AND NORMAL MILK, BUT I DO NOT DRINK JUST WATER SO THIS IS A WAY FOR ME TO ACTUALLY DRINK WATER AS I AM NOT TOO GOOD AT THAT!!

    YOU SHOULD TRY IT, I THINK YOU WOULD LIKE IT! I HAVE ONE EACH MORNING!!!! ENJOY!!

  3. I just started using 310 shakes, preference would be mocha but tried chocolate as the mocha is not routinely offered. So why am I sold on this shake as a meal replacement? Tastes better than shakeology (also cheaper), is plant based, packed with nutrients. Personally I love this shake. I am one who rarely ever ate breakfast and if I did it was carb loaded. I have a sugar addiction which I’m trying to break. I blend mine in my ninja bullet with a banana and some of the PB powder. Tastes great, no after taste. Definitely filling. There is no grittiness whatsoever, if someone says so perhaps they need to use a blender versus simply shaking by hand. This meets my needs 100% as I often skipped meals and consumed junk foods.
    I also recommend the detox tea, just never late at night (less on learned here) as you may find yourself awake much of the night. The tea is great, also filling and a definite replacement for a snack. Someone asked me why I’m drinking these as not very overweight (maybe 20 pounds to lose). I’m drinking these to better my health. To assure I’m consuming nutrients not empty calories. Hope this helps someone here. Just remember if you are a heavy consumer of sugar and carbs this may take time.

  4. I just started 310 2 days ago, I am having a shake 2x a day and have used the hot tea or lemonade as a snack. I have placed 2 subsequent orders as I love the taste and versatility of the shakes. I have read that many folks don’t like the taste/texture of the shakes. I love them! I have tried other shakes that were not as tasty! I am drinking Hibiscus tea now and am enjoying it. Yesterday I tried the cherry and lime lemonade…so GREAT!!! As far as losing weight it’s too soon. I’m hoping for great results!

  5. This company has the worst customer service I have ever seen. I ordered a trial pack, tea and vitamins. I was never sent a tracking number. I called customer service and the rep seemed to be half asleep. Once I recieved my order I joined the fb group. Upon inspection of the package I noticed I was missing product. In the chat on fb I was censored and eventually my post was deleted. It was not negative nor was I bashing the company. I emailed the company and requested a return lable to send everything back unused and unopened. After about a week I recieved the label via email and immediatley returned everything. I recieved my partial refund about a week later. I was not refunded the taxes I paid. A rep said that they only refund the sub total THIS IS RIDICLOUS! I feel this company is a scam and the customer service is horrendus! I am so glad I returned everything and avoided even bigger problems in the future.

  6. I was thinking of trying this product because of all the reviews which is overwhelming makes you wonder if it is that great I did read it has caffeine in it which would give you energy but there’s people like me that cannot have caffeine because of my heart, and I already have high blood pressure as of right now I just been doing all the reading on it.

  7. There are 2 starter kits. The $9 plus shipping is just 3 one serving drink packets, shaker cup, sample of lemonade and berry juice. The expensive starter kit is the large servings of 4 shakes etc. I started with the little $9 packet and loved it. Chocolate with banana n teaspoon peanut butter ice almond milk is excellent

  8. I just think these taste great when you make some of the recipes they offer. Like, really good! For me it’s a way of getting a lot of protein in me without a ton of calories. I do think they are very expensive. I am not too sure about ingredient quality but know it’s gotta be better then french toast or waffles for breakfast!

  9. you can purchase this elsewhere. I bought my tea on line from walmart. $23.99 for 18 bags. The tea is all I have used so far. Got the hibiscus and peach flavors. Awesome.

  10. i would rather stick to just my regular protein i tried the sample and cause my stomach to hurt. i dont need a particular product to help me lose weight . i can lose weight by sticking to whole foods rather then shakes.

  11. I used 310 shake to help me start with my diet process..this was the first time I had to truly diet after giving birth at age 44 to a 12 lb. Baby and developing diabetes in the process…I lost over 40 lbs. in less than 6 months…I also walked 3 times a week..it will always be my go to should I need some help in weight loss again!

  12. 310 is a big rip off. I started with the original flavors that I like. However, they are now selling this organic flavors and is actually forcing you to purchase the organic flavors which to me does taste metallic. I have not lost any weight and everybody body type is different plus one scoop of protien in the smoothie does not fill me up. After 1 hour I am hungry again.

  13. Well i do like a couple of the flavors yet i would need to add another protein powder to the shake or it just wont fill me up. 110 calories is nothing more then a snack.. i would much rather do smoothies i can make myself then a powder like this. i think ill stick to my shakeology and orgain way better too

  14. 310 Nutrition is indeed a scam. Despite the company’s claims, the shakes are NOT gluten free, the shakes are made in a factory that also processes wheat. I’m not a celiacs sufferer, but I’ve got a heavy gluten intolerance. The “All in One” shake I tried was horrible going down and worse leaving. I had diarrhea and the weird rash I get when I’ve been exposed to a considerable amount of gluten. I thought I had food poisoning, and oddly enough, today (4/10/23) I saw that 310 nutrition is being sued for fraud, because the “All in One” shakes are allegedly contaminated with a harmful bacteria (B. Cerius) that can make you extremely ill. The lawsuit claims 310 Nutrition was aware of the contamination and refused to warn customers. That’s horrifying. 310 has been sued before because of heavy metals in their products. 310 knew lead and cadmium were present in their stuff and they refused to apply a required warning, hence the lawsuit that forced 310 to comply. Sounds similar to the current litigation. Needless to say, I’ll never touch another overpriced and potentially dangerous bag of chalky dust from 310 Nutrition, and people thinking about trying 310 should reconsider. This evening I read a 310 employee’s review of the company, and they complained about being forced to write positive comments and reviews while deleting any negative ones. Try asking about the current fraud lawsuit on 310’s FB page and see how long it remains visible, lol. So, based on 310’s lack of transparency, openly deceitful advertising, terrible taste, high price, lousy returns policy, and the chance of getting a bacterial infection that causes vomiting and diarrhea, I strongly advise against trying it.

  15. 310 Nutrition is far worse than a regular scam. They straight up lie and engage in lies of omission. Despite the company’s claims, the shakes are NOT gluten free, the shakes are made in a factory that also processes wheat. I’m not a celiacs sufferer, but I’ve got a heavy gluten intolerance. The “All in One” shake I tried was horrible going down and worse leaving. I had diarrhea and the weird rash I get when I’ve been exposed to a considerable amount of gluten. I thought I had food poisoning, and oddly enough, today (4/10/23) I saw that 310 nutrition is being sued for fraud, because the “All in One” shakes are allegedly contaminated with a harmful bacteria (B. Cereus) that can make you violently ill. The lawsuit claims 310 Nutrition engaged in fraud because they were aware of the contamination and refused to warn customers. That’s horrifying. 310 has been sued before because of heavy metals in their products. 310 knew lead and cadmium were present in their stuff and they refused to apply a required warning, hence the lawsuit that forced 310 to comply. Sounds similar to the current litigation. Needless to say, I’ll never touch another overpriced and potentially dangerous bag of chalky dust from 310 Nutrition, and people thinking about trying 310 should look elsewhere. This evening I read a 310 employee’s review of the company, and they complained about being forced to write positive comments and reviews while deleting all negative ones. Try asking about the current fraud lawsuit on 310’s FB page and see how long it remains visible, lol. So, based on 310’s lack of transparency, obviously deceitful marketing, terrible taste, high price, lousy returns policy, and the chance of maybe getting poisoned by a bacteria that causes vomiting and diarrhea, 310 is a huge scam.
