Shakeology…the REAL DEAL!

Shakeology…what is all this hype about? I thought the same thing…wasn’t interested, wasn’t convinced, been there, done that before. I had tried different supplements in college, different protein powders, and I came to the conclusion that they were all the same. Plus I didn’t feel like I needed to PAY for a nutritional shake when I could buy the ingredients and make my own. Right??? Wrong! The problem was that I wasn’t doing it, didn’t have the time, and my nutrition was not anywhere where it needed to be to truly jump start my health and fitness. The truth was I really didn’t know much about nutrition. I spent 10 years competitively swimming and CARB LOADING. Ummm, that works when you swim 5 hours a day (think caloric intake of Michael Phelps!), but not when your swimming career ends and you go to college, get a real job, and have 2 children. Let alone…metabolic changes.

In December 2012, my coach brought me one to try at school and I was amazed at the taste! Chocolate Shakeology is my favorite, especially for this chocolate lover! And I was SO surprised how it filled me up. I thought my 90 calorie Special K bar was doing the trick, but the problem was that there was NO nutritional value to it and I was hungry 30 minutes later and found myself wanting to snack all day. I committed to 30 days ( gotta love the 100% money back guarantee!) and was hooked! 2 and 1/2 years later, I have my super foods shake every day for breakfast on the way to school.

What have I noticed as the biggest changes? Where do I begin? My energy increased (which was MUCH needed for this mom and teacher), digestion improved, sweet cravings decreased, and my immunity sky rocketed! I can’t tell you how many times I was in the health clinic each year because of illness being around students all day. Even if I get a cold once and awhile, it lasts for just a few days as opposed to weeks. It was the absolute GAME CHANGER for me!

Shakeology is NOT intended to be a protein shake, although it averages about 17 grams of protein per serving. It’s a SUPER FOODS shake with probiotics, antioxidants, phytonutrients (plants, roots, berries), and contains your daily dose of multi-vitamins. It was just the jump start I needed when I began my health and fitness journey and combined with weekly exercise, I lost over 25 pounds and 30 inches in 3 months!

With being a history teacher, I’m a TOTAL research gal! Beachbody just conducted their first clinical study last summer & the results are profound. It wasn’t just about weight loss, but a gradual decrease of weight loss over time coupled with incredible decreases in cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure for many.

If you have been struggling with nutrition and just don’t know where to begin, this could be the perfect time for you too! I was so blessed that someone shared Shakeology with me because it’s been not just a game changer for my nutrition but a life changer!
