Shakeology


The Healthiest Meal of the Day!




Fitness is great, but proper nutrition is 80% of your results, if you don’t have that you won’t get the body you want. Shakeology  has a very unique superfood ingredient makeup of 70 amazing ingredients! It will take your health to an entirely different level! It’s 100% natural, has no artificial sweeteners and it’s not just a weight loss shake or protein shake. There really is nothing at all on the shelf today that it can substitute for, or even a compare to Shakeology. I’ve been into superfoods for a long time and this formula is the best on the market. I’m simply a firm believer in the product as someone who used it myself as a customer for one year, and now as a coach. 

It’s packed with 16g of protein per servingThe ingredients include Brown rice protein, Pea protein, Maca root, Chia, Quinoa, Yacon root, Spirulina, Chlorella, Pomegranate, Goji berry, A├žai, Camu-Camu, Himalayan salt, Strawberry, Banana, Pineapple, Papaya, Green tea, Maitake & Reishi mushrooms, Barley grass juice, Kamut grass juice, Spinach, Holy basil, Wheat grass juice, Ginkgo biloba just to name a few, but the picture below shows all the ingredients.




The shake helps increase energy, build and repair muscles, its full of antioxidants and will help you to maintain a healthy weight. It is sweetened with stevia and coconut flower nectar. Beachbody said that "since Shakeology is a low-caloric meal replacement, with a lower glycemic index than most meals, it should be acceptable for most people with diabetes." If taken daily for three months it will help with lowering cholesterol levels. The protein source is brown rice and pea protein, but you don't have to be vegan to drink it, it's just a great alternative to whey if you body doesn't tolerate whey too well. It's also soy free, gluten free and lactose free. It’s high in vitamin C (thanks to the camu camu) and zinc so if you're prone to get sick often shakeology will make your immune system stronger, I rarely get sick. I've also heard from many people that the vitamin content in the shake has helped with their migraines. 

It will keep your blood sugar steady and crushes junk food cravings. It's definitely been key in my weight loss because it fills me up and decreases my cravings for bad foods. It's a quick and easy way to get all the nutrients you would from a bowl of fruit and vegetables. Perfect for a meal replacement if you're on the go or didn't have time to cook dinner after a hectic day. Or if you're a college student and need an easy late night snack. Or if you don't get to eat your daily's worth of fruits and vegetables shakeology has that covered for you! It's easier than juicing because it's not time consuming, no mess, its portable and costs less if you think about how much it would cost to juice all 70 ingredients in shakeology.

What does it taste like?

Tropical is a light refreshing flavor so it’s really easy to customize by adding fruit so it’s a great choice for breakfast if you want a fruitier option. Chocolate whey tastes like a thick milkshake. Chocolate vegan tastes like dark chocolate but you can have a different flavor daily by adding different additions like a banana, peanut butter, sugar free caramel, etc.
Vitamins

These are all the vitamins I used to take everyday and powders I would add to other protein shakes, can you believe that! Not anymore with Shakeology! Every single one of these is in Shakeology. I'm saving money buy not having to use so many nutritional supplements because I get it all conveniently in one shake.  Additionally it has 22 vitamins and minerals including my favorite for healthy hair and nails - B12.
 


With that said, let’s look at Shakeology from a cost perspective. How much do you spend on your combination of whey protein, multivitamins, etc. per month already? How many times per week/month do you eat lunch out?  By the time you add it up, you may be spending close to the amount you’d spend on Shakeology and not even getting nearly as much benefit as you would from Shakeology; which has not only the protein and vitamins, but fruit and vegetable blends from around the world that would simply be impossible to find even if you had all day to look for them.  Carl Daikeler, CEO of Beachbody, personally went around all over the world for 70 different superfoods to one lot farmers to make sure the integrity was perfect, not chemically altered, the soil wasn't depleted, and negotiated importing them, which is it’s a huge deal. You can watch his video at the bottom of this post. There’s not much of a profit margin to the company with shakeology and the science to put it into a bag and keep it fresh is just amazing! They’re not taking the cheap easy way. There’s nothing out there that compares and goes through that much work.

The Competitors
Shakeology helps your body eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. A proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and prebiotics helps your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating processed foods. The whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat while the 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.
Sure you could use Muscle Milk which has the same 16g of protein as Shakeology, but It has fewer vitamins. For instance one serving of Muscle Milk has 105 mg of Vitamin C, while Shakeology has 180 mg. Muscle Milk also only has 875 IU of Vitamin A, while Shakeology has 5000 IU. Likewise it has less B1, B6, and B12.
Myoplex has double the amount of calories for one serving, yet still has less Vitamin A, C & E. Neither Myoplex or Muscle Milk contains any of the phytonutrients, prebiotics and enzymes found in Shakeology.  
EAS 100% Whey Protein has no vitamins in it, just protein so you'd still have to buy vitamins on top of that. Consumer reports found that all of those brands have hidden dangerous ingredients - cbs news report.

Slim Fast only has 10g of protein, more carbohydrates and triple the amount of sugar. You'd need a dictionary to figure out what all the ingredients are; unlike Shakeology where every ingredient is a whole food. Slim Fast contains aspartame and corn syrup solids, two things I try to avoid in my diet.  It's not as filling as Shakeology and doesn't give you the kind of energy Shakeology gives you.

MonaVie has a similar calorie/protein/sugar/carbs content as Shakeology but MonaVie has more cholesterol and sodium. Monavie has little fiber which is the major benefit of eating fruit so their new formula has Fibersol-2 which is a questionable additive. It's missing the pre-biotics, digestive enzymes, and amino acids found in Shakeology. It's made of acai and whey protein and only has 19 ingredients vs 70 ingredients in Shakeology.

Educate yourself on the product and decide if you’re ready for a change! You'll see it will really be instrumental in your weight loss! The question is do you want a protein shake that is made of 70 whole foods or synthetic chemically manufactured ingredients? Shakeology outperforms all of its competitors and is worth every penny at $4 a serving! You probably spend $4 at Starbucks every morning, why not drink something that has more nutrition? You can pour coffee into your icecube tray, freeze it, then mix a few cubes into your shakeology in the morning.
When you look at all the amazing ingredients Shakeology has, you'll see it's more than just a protein shake. Now you just have to choose what flavor you want: Greenberry, Chocolate (whey), Chocolate (vegan), Tropical (vegan), or the new Vanilla flavor. The price of the two whey flavors is going up April 1 but they are allowing people to lock in their current price now for life!  Let me know if you need help deciding!
