Shakeology is in a league all of its own. For me, it makes me feel like a million bucks and it tastes good. Umm.. win win! HOWEVER, it took me awhile before I would ever even give it a chance. I have never been a ‘shake’ person…ever. I don’t put chemicals into my body and I truly believe that nutrients from food are our best source of nutrition. So, closed minded I was when I was told about Shakeology. But, I was stuck at a weight loss plateau, I constantly felt tired and I was sick of cooking 5-6 meals a day for not only myself, but for my family. So, research I did. I quickly realized that Shakeology was not a chemical filled weight loss drink like most of the rest. Shakeology’s ingredients are PURE. After researching each ingredient (and there are over 70!!) I realized that each on was a REAL FOOD. There is no harmful additives, no preservatives, no sugars, no soy, no CRAP in it! And I noticed that most of the ingredients are root/plant based and I am all about preventative medicine! So, I gave it a whirl and holy cow! WHY didn’t I use it long ago? I also signed up to be a coach at the same time so I could get a 25% discount on it. I have had my Shakeology every single day for 8 months now and I have never felt better. I am full for 3 hours, I have energy (without any caffeine I might add!!), I don’t get headaches anymore, my skin isn’t dry, my digestion is so much better and the list goes on. Basically, I am a mom who is constantly on the go. I need a meal that is healthy, one that I don’t have to worry about and one that I can grab and go when I am racing out the door with my kids. This is IT.
Shakeology helped me lose my last 8 pounds. The nutrients from it properly fueled my body and boosted my metabolism. I also have no thyroid, so that can make my body go whacky a lot too.. Shakeology has changed that 100%. My thyroid levels have been normal since 2 weeks after drinking it. I was in shock. I never thought I would feel ‘normal’ again because of all the hypo/hyper thyroidism issues I had had for two years. Well, this has been my saving grace! Even my doctor couldn’t believe the difference!! I’m PROOF of the PRODUCT 🙂
Shakeology TASTES GREAT!! I have nothing to lose/gain by saying this! I just want to speak the truth! I literally make mine like a ‘dessert’ everyday and it tastes like a milkshake. SO GOOD! Who doesn’t want to eat a meal that tastes like a snickers bar, but is getting the nutrition like eating 6 salads in one meal?? THIS GIRL, that’s for sure!
What’s in it and why in the heck is it so good for you?
Well, simple answer. It is pure, dense nutrition. Shakeology is a nutritional protein shake that provides a wide spectrum of healthy nutrients in a low-calorie formula. Whether you use it as a meal replacement for weight loss or simply to ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs for optimal health, Shakeology takes the guesswork out of nutrition.
Shakeology has over 70 natural, non processed high quality ingredients that are conveniently all together in on amazing ‘meal!’ It is literally all the nutrients you need to be healthy!! It’s ridiculous how good it is for you!! Shoot, I give it to my kids because it is so darn amazing! The low down TRUTH– everyone’s diet is deficient in some of the key nutrient groups packed into just one Shakeology serving. No matter how hard we try to eat properly, most of us truly can’t get 100% pure nutrition everyday.. UNLESS– YOU DRINK SHAKEOLOGY!

What in the world can Shakeology do for you?
Here is where the fun begins! The benefits of Shakeology are literally endless! Within the first week I noticed less bloating, more energy, my junk food cravings practically disappeared, no headaches, better digestion, I became “regular” in the nice terms ;), my skin felt smoother, no more dry spots, my hair was shiny, my nails got stronger, I seriously was not irritable or moody, I felt like my head had been taken out of a cloud and the list goes on. That was literally wall within the first week! I still feel the same way now, I don’t get bad menstrual cramps like I used to, I lost my last 8 pounds I wanted to lose with Shakeology because it set my body up with proper nutrition which in turn helps drop unwanted pounds and I am just happy to wake up everyday!
I had my thyroid removed in 2012 and for nearly a whole year I felt horrible. I was beyond tired everyday, I cried all the time, I was depressed, my hair was falling out, my nails would break, when I would scratch an itch on my body my skin would bleed, I just looked and felt awful! I seemed to go up and down between 5 pounds each day and my stomach was ALWAYS BLOATED. Shakeology leveled out my thyroid hormone!! It truly saved my life!! No amount of ‘medicine tweaking’ was working for me.. I couldn’t seem to get it right, until this. Some of the roots in Shakeology aid in thyroid hormone production! I didn’t find that out until after I started using it. Well, I tell everyone about it now.
It has proven to lower cholesterol, lower blood glucose levels, lower cardiovascular risk and reduce oxidative damage caused by free radicals. This stuff is the real deal. EVERY SINGLE PERSON should use Shakeology. My kids love it and I tell you what. We haven’t been sick nearly the number of times we were sick at this time last year. Our bodies are set up and our immune system is working great!
How to use Shakeology-
So, this is the easy part! You can literally put 1 scoop of shakeology in a shaker bottle, cup or blender and 12 ounces of water. Easy as that. Or if you want to add a few things to it to make it a TREAT, (that is what I do) then we have plenty of recipes to satisfy everyone’s tastebuds. My absolute favorite is the Greenberry flavor. I mix 1 scoop of Greenberry with 1 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup water and some ice then I put 1 TBSP Peanut butter and 1/2 banana in it and LOOK OUT!!!! SO GOOD 🙂 If you like a THICK shake then use less water if you like a THINNER consistency, use more liquid! 🙂
