This Beachbody program has changed my life. My quality of life. I have had asthma since I was 8 years old, always had to have a rescue inhaler. Its been living in the bottom of the diaper bag for months.
I can’t tell you the last time I used it! I used to get bullied all the time, I got made fun of for my weight, I starved myself throughout most of High school and even into adulthood. I walk with confidence now! I’m eating more than I ever have and it’s all good for Me! My blood pressure is back under control too!
Shakeology is a superfood nutrition shake that’s a catalyst for positive change. It helps build a strong nutritional foundation of healthy energy and vitality we need to take on bigger challenges, like a fitness program or a healthier diet.
It works by addressing some nutritional gaps our diets can have with potent ingredients that help support digestive health, provide healthy energy, reduce cravings, and just plain make us feel better. And when we feel better, we do better — making smarter choices and taking on bigger challenges.
4 Shakeology Myths You Might Have Heard:
- Shakeology is just a protein shake.
- Shakeology doesn’t contain whole-food ingredients.
- Shakeology is expensive.
- Shakeology is only for weight loss.
Myth #1: Shakeology Is Just a Protein Shake
Meaning just a shake that provides extra protein. I can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for anyshake.
But all shakes are not created equal — especially ones that contain superfoods. Shakeology is a very nutrient-dense shake.
You’d have to eat a whole lot of different foods to get the fiber, phytonutrients, protein, vitamins, and minerals in a single glass of Shakeology — and it would be tough to do that for fewer than 170 calories.
Truth be told, the majority of people are way more nutrient-deficient than they are protein-deficient.
Myth #2: Shakeology Is Just a Bunch of Extracts, With No Whole-Food Ingredients
Whenever it’s possible and sustainable for the formula, the superfoods in Shakeology are whole-ingredient powders processed in a way to help preserve their nutrient value.
It’s more difficult to source these specialty ingredients, but Beachbody has a whole team of scientists whose mission it is to help maximize the nutrition in every ingredient used in Shakeology.
Imagine trying to eat all those superfoods! Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.
When you compare other shakes against Shakeology, take a look at the calorie, fat, protein, and carbohydrate amounts, but also look at the ingredients.
For instance, you might notice other shakes have zero grams of sugar. How do you think those shakes achieve that? Hint, it’s not natural, as even fruit has sugar in it.
Shakeology has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Myth #3: Shakeology Is Expensive
To anyone who feels this product is expensive, I know that I have not done my diligence in breaking down its real value. Most healthy shakes out there cost between $3 and $10. Shakeology, at approximately $4 per shake, comes in on the low end of the average.
When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you’re buying 30 of your shakes up front. And, it means you’ll spend less money at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. I cannot duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients for the price.
Myth #4: Shakeology Is Only for Weight Loss
Most shakes are marketed this way. Shakeology is about health. When you put the right nutrients in your body, you may ultimately have more energy, fewer cravings, and feel better. As a result, you might eat less and become more active.
When was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and battling against a ton of cravings? That is because you may have been nutrient-deficient. Because it’s so nutrient-rich, Shakeology helps you in your battle to lose weight.
Shakeology isn’t magic. It’s clean, dense nutrition made super easy. It’s my family’s “fast food” on the counter.
