I first discovered Shakeology about 3yrs ago. My husband sent me a link to an article he found online. We had both been talking about losing weight because we were unhappy with how much weight we had allowed ourselves to gain over the years so, I told him to go build a plan and bring it to me and we would get started.
Shakeology instantly. I liked how it was full of whole food ingredients and was something I could quickly drink. I also liked how it advertised renewed energy, helped with craving control, regulated your digestions and assisted with weight loss.
But then, I saw the price… YIKES that is a lot of money for a shake. I wasn’t sold anymore. It took my husband getting us a free Shakeology sample and a few months of convincing me that it would be worth it before I agreed. I honestly thought it was overpriced.
However, I never took into account just how much I spent in Fast Food or groceries.
I also didn’t take into account how much it would cost me to recreate this shake. It is packed with over 70 Super foods and when they say Super Foods they are not kidding. Looking back I wish I started drinking Shakeology sooner!
Plus, Beachbody offers several different Shakeology discounts!
The first 2 weeks were rough, my tummy was always grumbly and I had to go to the bathroom all the time. But, I noticed that not only was my stomach feeling better it was getting flatter. I lost 5lbs my first week drinking Shakeology. I couldn’t believe it. I hadn’t worked out, I had changed my diet much and I still lose weight and I had energy, real energy! I have always suffered with Insomnia since I was a teen and just always felt tired and run down and a little sick.
Waking up and feeling awake was a huge deal for me. I kept drinking Shakeology and started my first Beachbody program about 3 weeks after starting Shakeology. By then I was already down 11lbs and was beginning to feel like a whole new person.
My skin was clearing up, I had acne really bad especially on my neck, my hair was growing faster and thicker than it had in years even my nails where looking better. Overall I just felt incredible.
Fast forward 3 years and I’m still drinking Shakeology every day. This shake is NOT just a protein shake like a lot of people think. It is a daily dose of dense nutrition your body craves. You can’t get the things this shake offers in our modern diets. Even with eating a clean diet 100% of the time, I still think it would be difficult to get all the things this shake offers in.
My Naturopath actually told me to stop taking a daily multi vitamin because I didn’t need it. Shakeology was more than enough.
So, if you are tired of feeling sick and tired all the time and want to feel better than you ever have, I highly recommend Shakeology. Chocolate is my favorite flavor with Vanilla and Strawberry tied for second.
