Why Shakeology?

So many people have been asking me why I choose to drink Shakeology.  They ask why it is so important for me to become a 365er.  People say it’s a fad, while others say it’s far too expensive…Screen Shot 2016-02-18 at 8.29.53 AM but in the meantime, I am choosing to drink it every single day for ME.  Let me share with you some of the benefits that I have seen since drinking Shakeology (and no, I am not reading you an advertisement for the product, but rather am sharing with you my very own personal experience).  Having one of these shakes every day fights off my usual 3pm sugar cravings.  From the first day of consuming a shake, I stopped visiting my colleague’s office for gummy bears!  It gives me boundless energy too – so much so that I am able to complete an intense workout late in the evening, even after a full day at the office, supper and homework with the kids, and their bedtime routine!  Since drinking Shakeology, I’ve also noticed significant improvements in my skin – fewer blemishes and definitely an enhanced glow!  One other great benefit is that my migraines have become less and less frequent and I attribute it to my drinking Shakeology.  Also, although it may be TMI for some of you, I have to say that these shakes have helped me to become more “regular” (and so for that, I have to say a very big thank you to the makers of Shakeology!!).  Yes, the product is pricey.  However, when you break it down, it actually comes to less than what I have spent on a fancy coffee at Starbucks (and so rather than buy a drink that will give me little to no nutritional benefits, and that won’t fill me up, I choose to spend the money on a shake that can either be a meal replacement or a snack, with a boatload of benefits to gain from it).

Now let me tell you a little bit about the taste – holy moly, this stuff rocks!!  I have tried almost every protein and meal replacement shake that is out there on the market.  Some have made me gag, some I’ve had to add so many other ingredients just to make it taste decent, and some have just been “ok”.  Shakeology is so delicious that I look forward to it all day.  I have tried Vegan Chocolate, Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Greenberry, and haven’t been disappointed once!  And Beachbody has so many incredible recipes to “spice up” the flavors, whether it be adding nut butters, fruits, veggies, avocado, juices, spices, or nuts…  And, I’ve made the no-bake Shakeology balls for dessert and they were a huge hit with our guests!  I just ordered the Tropical Strawberry and cannot wait to experiment with it.

So why not give Shakeology a try?  As I said earlier, it can be to replace a meal, or as a snack (I prefer to drink mine at 10am at work, and often to replace breakfast on the weekends when we are out running to one of our kids’ sporting events), and for the price, you can benefit in so many ways in your life.  Become a 365er like me – you won’t regret it!
