Below we take an in-depth look into ICONFIT Diet Shake, to see whether this meal replacement shake strikes the right balance between taste and effectiveness.
ICONFIT Diet Shake is a weight loss shake that comes in strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate flavours. It is designed to be consumed twice a day instead of two regular meals, and claims to induce weight loss, offer better digestive health, and burn fat.
Customers shouldn’t expect to experience any side effects whilst using this product, although it should be normal to experience hunger as a result of the low-calorie intake. Overconsumption of the whey protein that makes up the bulk of the powder can also cause bloating, nausea, cramps, and increased bowel movements.
On Amazon UK, a week’s supply of ICONFIT Diet Shake (containing 14 sachets) costs £16. Although this price may seem reasonable, the actual running costs of using this product are surprisingly high – any customer choosing to use ICONFIT Diet Shake regularly would pay £64 for less than a month’s supply. We would regard this price as far too high given the relative cheapness of the ingredients.
Meal replacement shakes tend to work as they are supposed to. As long as customers consume them as directed, they will surely be consuming fewer calories than normal, and will lose weight as a result. The thing that really separates the good meal replacement shakes from the bad is taste, price, and the degree to which they are filling.
In terms of being filling, the ICONFIT Diet Shake does what it is supposed to. Most customer reviews agree that this diet shake is thick and filling, acting as a good, low-calorie substitute for a meal. However, the existing customer reviews are very divided as to whether the shake tastes good, with many claiming that all of the available flavours taste fake and watery.
The price is also not particularly attractive. A month’s supply of ICONFIT Diet Shake will set you back by more than £64 – not bad when you consider that this is supposedly two-thirds of your food intake, but a bad deal when you consider the relative cheapness of the ingredients. Customers also cannot return their purchase if they remain dissatisfied, as ICONFIT do not appear to offer a money-back guarantee.
Overall, this product should work as advertised, and it offers a consistent weight loss effect that is relatively free from side effects. However, there are better meal replacement shakes out there in terms of price and quality.

ICONFIT Diet Shake is a diet programme and set of meal replacement shakes that claims to help dieters to lose weight. Each set comes with 14 sachets of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry-flavoured powder, which are designed to be mixed with water and consumed instead of a meal. Customers are instructed to take two sachets of ICONFIT Diet Shake in place of 2 meals, with the third meal consisting of a “healthy and regular” normal meal.
This diet shake set is produced and sold by ICONFIT, which is a diet and sports nutrition specialist known for their protein powders and supplements. ICONFIT are the largest manufacturer of its kind in its home country of Estonia, and they claim to use some of the best ingredients available in the EU. Customers visiting their official website can only arrange deliveries to Estonia, Lithuania, Finland, and Latvia, although UK customers can also purchase ICONFIT products on Amazon. The company can be contacted via email ([email protected]).
The directions for use are as follows:
ICONFIT Diet Shake is intended to work as a weight loss programme. Whilst consuming two sachets per day, customers are told that they will feel fuller for longer, and will be able to draw on a slow-releasing source of energy. The contents of each sachet will also supposedly prevent blood glucose levels from peaking, whilst also promoting overall digestive health. Most importantly, the green tea found within this product is said to work well to burn fat.
The overall effect of taking the sachets and avoiding all other sources of unhealthy food is that customers should lose weight.
Meal replacement shakes simply work by encouraging customers to swap meals for a 200-calorie thick shake. This method will absolutely cause weight loss for most people if observed correctly, as dieters will inevitably be consuming the low quantity of calories needed to experience weight loss. The question is whether this product is filling and more-ish enough for dieters to stick to.
Although the lack of ingredient quantities makes it hard to work out whether this product is well balanced, the majority of customer reviews claim that ICONFIT Diet Shakes are genuinely filling and stave off hunger effectively. However, a similar number also state that the shakes are not tasty, which might make the programme tough to stick to. Overall though, we would imagine that these diet shakes would broadly work as they are supposed to.
The ingredients found in ICONFIT Diet Shake are listed below. Unfortunately, the manufacturer fails to list all of the ingredient quantities used in this product, which can make it hard for customers to work out how effective the overall mix is. The quantities that are listed are correct for 1 sachet of powder.
ICONFIT Diet Shake is unlikely to cause any major side effects (apart from the hunger associated with not eating enough).
Overuse of whey protein shakes can sometimes cause increased bowel movements, thirst, bloating, nausea, cramps, reduced appetite, fatigue, and headaches. Those suffering from kidney issues or those that require prescription medication should check with their doctor before trying out this shake, as the increased protein intake could cause issues.
The use of green tea could give dieters a small hit of caffeine; those sensitive to caffeine may experience jitters, headaches, sleeplessness, or an increased heart rate.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you are taking any medications or are unsure about the suitability of this supplement for you, consult your doctor before purchase.
The majority of the customer reviews available on Amazon UK are positive, with customers claiming that the shakes are both filling and satisfying. However, a large minority of customers also state that the shakes taste cheap and fake, which obviously makes the programme hard/impossible to stick to.
I can only think all the negative reviews saying it doesn’t mix properly aren’t using proper shakers. They mix fine. I don’t know what people expect with regards to taste either. No they’re not gourmet Milkshakes, they’re diet shakes that you mix with water. All things considered they actually taste pretty good… They also do a good job of suppressing hunger. Overall can’t complain.
I liked these because they’re not as sickly sweet as some of the other brands out there. Consistency is thinner than others but still ok. Wasn’t too keen on the chocolate but still drinkable. Lost 8llbs in a week and a half with two shakes and a regular meal in the evening. Just ordered my second pack – this is too easy!
Didn’t mix well and tasted like paint
Worst shakes I have ever tasted!
UK customers can buy the ICONFIT Diet Shake on Amazon and eBay. Customers from Baltic countries or Finland can buy the same packs from the official ICONFIT website.
