Why drink Shakeology?!?
At the end of January 2012, I met my coach, Becky thru Facebook. After a few days, I reached out to her and inquired about P90X. I remember seeing the infomercial sometime around 2007-2008. I was intrigued at the results they advertised, but was very skeptical. Why? Because I didn't know ANYONE who looked like that and because since becoming a mom in 1999, I had SEVERAL failed attempts at weight loss and achieving a "HOT MOMMY" status.
When I told her that I was ready to make my purchase, she recommended that I purchase a "Challenge Pack". I had no clue what a "Challenge Pack" was. She told me that it was a fancy name for a combo-pack that included the program and a 30 day supply of Shakeology at a 25% discount. Plus, I would get a 30 day trial VIP membership, a bonus workout and FREE shipping.
The next question I had was, "What is Shakeology!?" She explained that Shakeology is a nutrition supplement that can be used as a meal replacement or as a snack. She shared a video with me that explained that Shakeology provides your daily dose of dense nutrition in ONE serving which helps improve your health while helping you combat your cravings and increase your metabolism. All which would help me reach my weight loss goals more quickly. My next question was, "Do I REALLY need it??????" She told me that it wasn't necessary, but it would definitely help me achieve my goals faster than if I did NOT add it to my daily routine while embarking on my weight loss journey. The only things that were preventing me from trying it was 1) the price 2) I remembered how Slim Fast, Kellogg's Special K Protein Drinks and Whey Protein never yielded any decent results. I was told that ALL Beachbody products came backed with a 30 day money back guarantee. So that was good. I also took a step back and looked at how much I had been spending on lunches eaten out and did the math. It was nothing compared to what a Challenge Pack would cost me. So after several hours and chickening out a few times, I did it. I PLACED THE ORDER.
I waited til the next morning to make my first shake after looking up recipes from Pinterest.
Within 3 days of consumption I noticed a major change in my appetite. I no longer felt like I needed to snack all day.
Within 1 week I noticed a major change in my energy levels. I no longer felt groggy in the mornings nor did I feel like I was going to fall asleep at my desk after lunch and around 4 p.m., which had become a "normal" feeling.
Within 2 weeks I noticed my lifelong cravings for salty, fried foods had subsided. They no longer crossed my mind.
We felt great! Our minds were clearer. Our bodies functioned better. Our diet was better than it had ever been. Our digestion improved greatly. It was amazing how 1 serving of Shakeology daily could have such a positive effect on us. It's not "random", or a "coincidence", or "in your head" that you FEEL BETTER, within days. These are the smartest calories you'll put in your body!
I started drinking Shakeology, totally skeptical and for pure vanity reasons. I wanted to lose a few pounds and look better. Now, several months later, I remain a loyal Shakeology customer for the fact that it keeps us healthy, keeps us functioning properly and because I believe it will not only improve, but save our lives, by keeping us as healthier than your average person. (And because of that, my mission is to get as many people as possible to try it!) Check out this video Seay Stanford put together informative video on the health benefits of Shakeology. If you have 6-7 minutes & are serious about improving your health, I highly recommend that you watch it. Here what Doctors have to say about Shakeology http://www.teambeachbody.com/watch/products/shakeology. Did you know that Canada's version of the FDA (Health Canada) considers SHAKEOLOGY a MEDICINE?? All 70 holistic ingredients had to be approved medicinally before Shakeology could be imported.

Are you wondering why you would choose to purchase Shakeology over a protein shake and/or a multivitamin?
Protein shake – The purpose of a protein shake is to help repair and build muscle tissue after a workout. Protein is an important element of a healthy diet, especially if weightlifting is part of your exercise routine. Muscles are made primarily of protein, so by adding protein post workout you will help them to repair and grow. However, protein shakes do not replenish essential nutrients, vitamins and acids lost during intense exercise.
Multi-vitamin – This helps to replenish the vitamins and minerals in the body that are often depleted during exercise. Because of this, you need to consume the recommended daily allowance of vitamins, which becomes harder to do as you reduce calories to expedite weight loss. A daily multi-vitamin helps to prevent disease, maintain energy, and keeps your immune system strong. This aids in the prevention of illness and recovery. However, a multi-vitamin cannot be used as a meal replacement and it also does not help to build muscle tissue.
Shakeology – This provides a protein source (17g) and all of the benefits of a multi-vitamin. Plus, it can be used as a meal replacement. This means that it can promote faster weight loss and faster muscled gains. Shakeology is a premium meal replacement shake that combines many health-boosting ingredients, including real food sources of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, protein and phytonutrients. These ingredients help to rebuild muscle, maximize cellular health, eliminate toxins, kick start metabolism, and lower cholesterol in as few as 30 days. It can also keep you blood sugar from spiking. A typical Whey protein shake cannot provide you with these benefits and neither will a multi-vitamin. Have a complete shake, once a day, which combines a protein shake and multi-vitamins plus so much more. I know from my experience that this is easier, more effective and less expensive.
I have heard this often: "You don't NEED a shake to lose weight. You just need to exercise, watch your calories and eat clean", which is true.
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. 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. Find out WHY it's termed truly, "The Healthiest Meal of the Day".
