TRUE STATEMENT: “You don’t NEED a shake to lose weight. You just need to exercise, watch your calories and eat clean”.
ALSO TRUE STATEMENT: When you cut your calories, you are consequentially reducing your volume of nutrients. That means you still will have cravings. Having cravings make temptations difficult and you tend to “cheat” more (and feel miserable).
Secondly, when you reduce your calories (and nutrients) you feel tired. You lack energy to complete a workout or sometimes even get through your day. Then, you reach for caffeine which spikes your heart rate and drops you flat on your face feeling worse a few hours later. These are the two main reasons why people are inconsistent with losing weight and end up giving up. They are miserable and it’s difficult sticking to anything, feeling this way.
IN SUMMARY: Yes, you CAN lose weight safely and successfully with just diet and exercise. But, by adding Shakeology, because it’s SO nutrient dense at just 160 calories, your body is satisfied because you are super-charging it with the nutrients it needs to thrive. Hence, you don’t experience cravings – and let me tell you, this alone is HUGE for me! Additionally, because of super-food blend of ingredients, you naturally get a rested energy so that you don’t “crash” and can workout harder. Additionally, because Shakeology is %100 natural (unlike anything else) your not “tricking” your body and harming it with chemicals (or metals) that ultimately reduce your bodies natural performance.
So, do you NEED Shakeology to be healthy and lose weight? No. But it sure does make the entire lifestyle change EASIER and way more enjoyable. It only makes sense to use this remarkable product to HELP you along in the process.
It’s not just a “protein” shake at GNC or at your local gym. Shakeology stands alone in it’s whole-food ingredient integrity and super-food blend.
Shakeology – Why I made it a staple in my daily meal plan?
Shakeology has been a life saving fitness and wellness tool for me in this journey to continue to get fit and stay fit. When I first started doing Turbo Fire years ago I didn’t feel like I was the type of person that needed to drink a shake every day. I really thought I could manage my eating habits and exercise and still reach my goals. Then the “protein shake” craze hit and it seemed like everyone was doing a shake so I tried several. I tried cheap ones, I tried one from my former gym I went to that was considerably more expensive and all of them really upset my stomach. Ugh!
I came across Shakeology from my now coach and I told her I couldn’t do protein shakes and she explained to me that Shakeology wasn’t a typical “protein shake” and was so much more than that. So I gave it try – went with the vegan line because it aligned with my dietary needs and really helped with my tummy “issues” because it’s dairy free! yay!
After researching and reading all the information on the Shakeology site I chose the chocolate. I needed that quick fix of chocolate everyday to curb my cravings, I LOVE my chocolate! From there I decided to become a beachbody coach shortly after to get the 25% discount on the products. I was so early in my transformation but, I had already come so far and I knew that I could help other people do the same thing. I received my shakeology order and my first shake I blended ice, 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup blueberries and 1 cup strawberries. I got better at mixing the shakes as the days went on and now they taste amazing. In my shipment was a calendar of 30 ways to mix Shakeology. I love trying new recipes and I wake up every morning looking forward to another shake.
Shakeology helps me every single day stay full, keep cravings away and it continues to help me get to my fitness goal! I drink my shake for the first meal of the day, right after my a.m. workout.
Here is a little background on Shakeology to help you make a better informed decision.

How often do you spend $41 on a salad?
But would you spend $4 to get the equivalent of a $41 salad?

Shakeology contains over 70 ultra high-quality ingredients conveniently located in one glass, to deliver nearly all the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy diet. It’s good for you, and good for everyone, because everyone’s diet is deficient in some of the key nutrient groups packed into just one Shakeology serving.

Phytonutrients support immune function and have anit-inflammatory properties.

What can Shakeology do for you?
It is an effective way to help you lose weight, increase your energy and be the healthiest you can possibly be. Shakeology can help you reduce cravings and promote healthy digestion and regularity. Shakeology recomends that you replace one meal per day with a shake along with regular exercise and a balanced diet, participants who did this experienced remarkable health improvements. It can reduce your total cholesterol, reduce LDL cholesterol, reduce cardiovascular risk, and reduce oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
How to use it.
It’s very simple.
Mix 1 scoop of Shakeology with 8 oz. of water. If you like, add ice. If you want something more filling and maybe even more satisfying, I highly recommend that you blend your Shakeology with ice and nonfat, almond, rice, or soy milk. I also recommend using a nutribullet or a ninja blender! Shakeology dissolves easily, but blending it will give it a thicker, creamier texture. Honestly, when I make my shakeology I always add more than 8 ounces of a liquid because I think it’s too thick! The more liquid you add the thinner it gets!! Check out my recent BLOG POST about how to REALLY make your shakeology taste GREAT!
The choices are endless as to what you can add to it! 🙂
