My Shakeology Review

28 12 2010

I’m starting to get more and more questions about Shakeology. So, I thought it was time to share my secret weapon when it comes to helping me feel comfortable in my own skin.  This is by no means a quick fix or a miracle drink. Those of you that know me know I don’t believe in that. Having a healthy fit body is a journey that takes a commitment to  a healthy lifestyle.  Shakeology is just one of the puzzle pieces. And, I have seen it help people gain the confidence they need to commite to the other pieces of the puzzle.  It does provide your body with all the nutrients many of us are missing due to our fast pace life, allowing your metabolism to function to the best of its ability to burn maximum calories and helps control cravings.  I am the smallest I have ever been and the shake is the only thing I have changed.

Anyway, let me give you my little Shakeology review…it was created by Beachbody®, the very same company who produces P90X®, Insanity®, and TurboFire® home fitness programs.  It’s more than a protein drink, meal replacement drink or an antioxidant drink.  It’s more of a health shake and an absolute God send when it comes to my stomach challenges (I have quite a few allergies).

I never dreamt in a million years this shake would impact my life the way it has (in terms of my stomach challenges and nutrient deficiencies) and my family and friends in terms of cholesterol, weight loss, blood pressure, etc.  Being around supplements for so long with college sports, personal training and all the gyms I have worked at, there has never been one that I would put my name on the line for until now.  Honestly, I don’t think the amount of body beneficial ingredients that are included in this supplement can be found anywhere else on the market. I truly believe in this supplement with all my heart.

So what’s in it then?

It has more than 70 ingredients…essential vitamins, minerals and whole foods  that your body needs to…

  • accelerate it’s ability to shed stored fat
  • Reduce cravings
  • Increase energy and stamina
  • Promote healthy digestion and regularity
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Help decrease inflammation
  • Boost your immune system
  • Helps keep blood sugar steady
  • Promotes healthy skin, hair and nails

I could go on… How many meal replacement drinks can say they do that?!

More Specifically, Shakeology® has…

  • Protein and essential amino acids to help build muscles and reduce food cravings.
  • Prebiotics and digestive enzymes aid in improving digestion, regularity, and nutrient absorption.
  • Antioxidants and phytonutrients help counteract free radical damage that can lead to degenerative diseases.
  • A daily dose of 23 vitamins and minerals provides your body what it needs to function for optimal health.

How It Works

  • Ingredients derived from whole-food sources deliver the daily vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients your body needs to curb cravings, allowing it to shed stored fat.
  • More than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.
  • Fiber, prebiotics, and digestive enzymes help your body gently eliminate the toxins that build up in our body from all those highly processed junk we eat more efficiently and promote better absorption of nutrients.

A 30-day supply of Shakeology® is $119.95 or approximately $4 a day .  Many people are shocked by the price but there is good reason for that…it’s worth every penny.  Chad and I both drink it every day along with most of my family and a growing number of friends.  When you select to have your order automatically shipped to you from the company every 30 days (Home Direct), you will receive FREE shipping! In addition to your initial order, you will receive 2 FREE Shakeology® workout DVD’s including a 30-minute and 50-minute workout.  I think that is pretty cool since exercise is another piece to this crazy health and weight loss puzzle.

Beachbody does give a “Bottom of the Bag” guarantee, so even if your clients consume the entire bag within 30 days and are not satisfied, they can send it back for a full refund (less S&H)
