Shakeology

chocolate-shakeology-bag-161x300Shakeology has been a life saving fitness and wellness tool for me in this journey to regain my energy and balance.  When I first started doing P90X 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.  But after 90 days of working out and following the meal plan,  I realized that with my busy schedule it just wasn’t a lifestyle I could continue indefinitely.  That’s a lot of time in the kitchen!!  I needed to simplify my daily meals, without compromising the QUALITY of my meals.  I decided to give Shakeology a try.

I know a lot about reading a label and I was thrilled that Shakeology had been made completely ‘clean’-not an artificial ingredient, sweetener, flavor, color or filler.  It’s just 70+ natural FOODS, reduced to a powder form for better  absorption.  If you can eat food, you can drink Shakeology.  THAT’S something I could feel really good about, without needing to worry about side effects or cancer causing ingredients like you might get from something else!  Yikes!  I chose the chocolate because frankly,  I needed that quick fix of chocolate everyday to curb my cravings!  :)

I received my shakeology order and for my first shake I blended it with just water.  I didn’t expect much, but it was surprisingly good! Nothing incredible, but it was good to know that on days I was traveling or REALLY in a pinch for time, it would save me from heading to a fast food place!  For my next attempt I followed one of the recipes that came with it and blended  ice, 1 cup coconut milk, 1/2 banana, and 1 tbsp almond butter. It was delicious!  There were 30 recipes on that calendar, but I hardly ever venture away from this combination–it’s THAT good!

Shakeology helped me lose the last couple lbs and now maintain my weight.  I drink my shake for either breakfast or lunch, and sometimes even throw in an extra for dessert! You can make it however you like, even making into cookies, pies and ice cream!  Here is a little background on Shakeology to help you make a better informed decision. See why 100 doctors recommend Shakeology!

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 does Shakeology Compare?

I’m all for finding the BEST products at the BEST possible price.  Therefore, when Shakeology came out I did some research to see what else was out there.  Here’s what I discovered….

Comparison to ‘Cheaper’ Fast Food…

Comparison to other shakes and ‘health’ drinks….

Comparison to pretty much everything…(this is overboard for me, but some of you really want ALL the deets, lol!)  Just remember…too many cals and you gain weight.  Too few cals and you die.  Lower cals does not equate to ‘better’, it’s just one factor of many.
