Shakeology: What is it, exactly?
It’s a conundrum people face in kitchens the world over: You want to eat healthy, but you don’t know where to start.
Oh, and you kind of don’t like vegetables.
Introducing the meal replacement, health shake my whole family drinks DAILY. Fruits. Veggies. Antioxidants. Probiotics. All natural. No caffeine. No artificial flavors or sweeteners. Shot of wheat grass. Vegan flavors. 70+ all natural sources of FUEL designed for YOUR body. Read the label and actually recognize the ingredients! (quinoa, spinach, blueberries, wheatgrass, flax, chia seeds, acai berry, green tea…)
When I first heard about Shakeology, I rolled my eyes. Another gimmick on the market. Another SlimFast right? Like we needed ANOTHER magic pill or diet shake to promise “energy and weight loss” riiiiigggghhhhtttttt. Plus, I’m not a shake person. I like to chew my food!! I didn’t believe that Shakeology would actually keep me full and satisfied.
See, I was a skeptic, too. But then one of my most trusted friends and a fellow health & fitness nerd started talking to me about Shakeology and some of my personal struggles and I agreed to try a sample pack. (Some of my issues are severe ulcerative colitis, a history with Guillain Barre Syndrome, and a liftetime of struggling with acne).
I liked it! I started researching it and loved what I was reading. Natural ingredients with tons of studies into their health properties and benefits. Shakeology is full of real ingredients that I want to fuel my body with but can’t afford, or access, to buy individually. It was a shake that I would have no hesitation to also share with my children.
• Proteins and fiber: Help reduce hunger and junk-food cravings.
• Antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals: Help fight free-radical damage, while helping your body support a healthy immune system.
• Adaptogen herbs: Traditionally used to help your body adapt and respond to the effects of stress.
• Prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and fiber: Help your body absorb nutrients as well as support regularity and healthy digestion.
Shakeology gave me natural energy to help combat the fatigue that I was feeling, especially in the afternoons. It is low on the glycemic index, so it keeps me from having sugar crashes and my sugar cravings had a significant decline. My skin has cleared up and I no longer experience acne. I no longer take (with my doctors approval) a ulcerative colitis medicine that my gastroenterologist once told me that I would have to take for the rest of my life. My recovery from exercise has been reduced (no more sore muscles!) and I feel my endurance has improved as my muscles and body have been properly fueled. Plus, it is a key component to my weight loss.
I understand that Shakeology is a considerable investment! I totally gawked at the price tag and had sticker shock initially! Hello! I am a teacher and we do NOT make millions in that career. :/ But then I thought, this isn’t a snack or a drink that I also have to take tons of supplements with. It’s a full meal replacement and multi-vitamin in one! If I was to buy these ingredients separately, it would cost me over $700! If I skip the daily latte and doughnut, which are just sugar/fat/and no nutrition, I’d actually SAVE MONEY (especially when I learned how to save 25% as a coach) and be doing something that helps me FEEL and LOOK better!
Let me ask you a few questions:
Would you like more NATURAL energy (not the cracked out kind)?
Would you be willing to replace ONE meal a day and take out one meal that isn’t meeting your nutritional needs?
Do you have $4 a day to feel better, to replace one meal you either skip or eat out, with something thats going to make you feel and look better?
How would you like to lose weight the healthy and natural way by giving your body what it REALLY needs?
How important is your health to you?
What are your health and fitness goals? Are your goals worth investing in your health?
Look, I’m not going to tell you that Shakeology is going to make you skinny overnight, make you glow, and float on clouds. What I’m saying is that for me, personally, Shakeology has helped!
I have more natural energy. I use to feel so sluggish and tired – especially with the mid-day crash. (food=fuel just like gas=car running, you’re a machine that needs the right stuff!)
I’ve lost weight and kept it off – while I’m consistent with my diet and workouts (including Shakeology every day)
My hair grows like weeds and my nails grow like they do during pregnancy
It’s actually helped with mood swings. I can tell that Shakeology gives me a natural UP feeling. (My husband will vouch for this!) Food effects a big portion of our emotions because of how are brains react chemically to what we ingest – give your brain and heart something to be happy about!
I’ve shared it with my friends and family, and am happy that so many of them are also Shakeology addicts now and preach the results and effects that they are experiencing. I wouldn’t advocate this product to people that I love if I didn’t 100% believe in it’s quality and potential.
I am no longer dependent on any prescription medicine of any kind! That is such an amazing feeling! 🙂
