I was not a shake person.
I wanted to eat my food, not drink it.
Why would I need some gross, gimmicky shake to give me nutrients when I could just eat clean?
When my coach, Kelly, told me that I needed to drink Shakeology and do a Beachbody workout to be able to join her challenge group in March 2013, I told her I didn’t do shakes. She basically told me I couldn’t be in her group if I didn’t at least try it for a month, and assured me it would give me the best results by combining the two. I was desperate, so I reluctantly agreed to do it. However…before I committed to buying a full bag of some Slim Fast looking junk, I asked her if I could taste it to see which flavor I liked. She agreed, and I bought a 5 packet trial from her to test out.
I made my first shake with water and ice. I hated it.
I made my second shake with water and ice. I drank most of it.
I got smart and asked for a tastier way to make my third shake — peanut butter and banana with chocolate — and almost had to fight my kids off to be able to drink it. By the way, I pretty much don’t recommend making your shake with only water and ice. I can recommend a million better recipes that taste better than that.
I was hooked. Shakeology not only helped with my cravings (ohhh the sweet tooth struggle is a REAL one), but it was a super easy way to get my nutrients in. And I don’t know about you, but I’m not a huge breakfast person. I just don’t have a big appetite in the morning. Being able to whip up a shake before I drive to work and then drink it during my commute — well that saves time, is a healthy meal (the healthiest one of the day actually), and is actually CHEAPER than what I would usually end up grabbing if I opted for fast food. And, ironically, is actually faster than fast food.
Not only that…but after drinking Shakeology, my A1C levels have been lowered, I have lost weight (in conjunction with exercise and mindful eating), and my B12 and vitamin D levels are finally in the healthy range!
Want to try Shakeology for yourself? There are two very easy options for you:
1. Order the Shakeology Sampler Kit from my website. You get 6 packets of Shakeology (one of each flavor) for $29.95 plus tax and shipping.
2. Order a trial kit from me, and have the ability to customize the number of packets as well as flavors! Fill out this form and I will get your packets sent to you – with free shipping!
Shakeology – clinically proven to help with weight loss, blood sugar, and cholesterol, is more than just a “weight loss” shake. It is seriously the KEY in the health transformation of myself and others.
Why just take my word for it? Here are some comments made by some of my clients, coaches, and friends:
- I had actually tried a couple of brands of shakes from the health food store and they were horribly gritty…Shakeology is totally NOT gritty. I was starving when i got home and my shakeology had been delivered so i figured i would try it.
- I love the Combat workout! Also, shakeology is awesome! I’ve went from 158 to 142 in two months. I’m definitely seeing change in the way my body looks. Getting more defined and kicking myself for not taking before photos lol.
- Thank you for the Christmas card. I want to let you know that I have lost 22 lbs so far since you gave the meal plan in November. I also have been doing the workout from the 21 day fix. It has been a hard 4 weeks and a lot of tears. I know now that in order to get where I want to be I got to push through the pain. When I started I weighed 295 and I thought I would never see anything smaller. Honey 273 looks good but can’t wait to see 173.
- I found out I am in menopause. I truly think shakeology and beachbody has kept me sane and helped to ward off the weight that is trying desperately to latch on to me!!!
- I used to be so sick after I ate anything. Like a six month pregnant food baby. I was embarrassed to go anywhere to eat with friends because I would bust out of my clothes within minutes of eating. I had all kinds of tests I’m my gall bladder and endoscopies trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Enter Shakeology and within one week the problems were gone. I haven’t blown up like that once in a year and a half! Never going back!
- I feel more energized, less cravings, makes me feel good in the mornings because I’m actually having breakfast.
- [My husband] doesn’t feel sluggish during the day like he had been. So I get up at 4 every morning to get his shake ready. Anything to help him through his long day.
- I sleep better. My migraines haven’t made an appearance in a month. I crave healthy food. I don’t want to put whatever is easiest into my stomach just because its there. I have actually energy. Not the fake energy drink kind. And after I had an appendectomy in ’09, which resulted in me getting C. diff. I’ve had IBS type symptoms. Well since being on ShakeO they have disappeared.
- After years of testing deficient for D, Bs and Iron, I’ve gotten my first awesome blood results. Now am I not deficient in any of the areas I was before, but I also had normal sugar levels for the first time in years.
