Nutrition and weight loss via Shakeology!

Many of you know that talking and writing about juicing and Shakeology is huge in my life because they are both something that I believe in so much! Well, I’ve decided to write another post about shakeology! I have been using Shakeology as a meal replacement every single day (and at times I'll have two a day)! It’s interesting how I came about using this product, because I was super skeptical about it at first, and actually refused to try it out. It wasn’t until I started on P90X that I really saw the value in getting healthy and then I realized that the nutrients contained in one serving of shakeology were hard to come by at the grocery store, farmer's markets and other places. When I first made up a Shakeology shake there were only two flavors available. They have come along way since then. Initially I tried it and ended up liking the taste. I had order a month’s supply to see what kind of health benefits I could personally experience. I knew I had 30 days to see how it would impact my life! I took a chance to experience the benefits and decided I would give my best shot for thirty days. To make a long story short, I lost 30 lbs, had more energy each day than I had in a long time, and felt “healthier” overall. I drank shakeology while I did P90X and I felt full and satisfied. I now am doing Insanity and still am consuming shakeology daily.
After I started to get results with it, Jannene started drinking it too. Within the first month she lost a few pounds and she wasn't even drinking it every day! She had been going to the gym and seeing a trainer but wasn't really dropping pounds. Almost like she hit a plateau with her weight loss. When she started drinking shakeology, she started to lose and I found her dipping in and making her own without any regards to how long my "30 day" supply would last the two of us. When I brought that up she simply said I better order some more. As a way to save money we decided to buy Shakeology on Home Direct so that we received it each month and received free shipping!
Since starting on shakeology we both started talking about it with friends and family. My mom started drinking it after she was discharged from the burn unit in Arizona. I suggested shakeology to her after her Doctor told her to buy "Boost" from Wal-mart to help her get the nutrients she needs while recovering. A few months later we all went to dinner and she picked up the tab. I inquired as to why and she told me; "Because of you, I know I am at least 20 pounds lighter!" I wasn't sure what she meant then she told me she ran into a lady that shared a room with her while she was in the burn unit for 20+ days. It turns out the lady gained over twenty pounds after she followed the advice to drink Boost to help her recover! My mom thanked me profusely for telling her about shakeology and how nutritionally dense it is! There are literally hundreds of people that use Shakeology, and many of them have experienced outstanding results. Shakeology works!
One of the best videos about Beachbody Shakeology that Beachbody has created is the “100 Doctors Don’t Lie” video. Here, doctors explain why Shakeology is such a unique product and why it should be used on a daily basis.

Many people immediately have an objection about the price, as I did, but if you use it how it’s supposed to be used, as a meal replacement, then it completely justifies the cost. I know as a meal replacement, I work it into my grocery bill. I'm not having to buy as much as at least one (sometimes two) meals a day come in the form of a filling and satisfying shake. Now that I understand the health benefits and value in Shakeology, the price is a non-issue because I know that I’m taking care of my body and providing a way for my wife to get the nutrients she needs too. Especially since making a juice really isn't her thing. She'll drink the "good" ones I make, but I've never caught her making her own juice, but I have often caught her red handed making a shakeology!

Before we started using Shakeology, Jannene would go out for lunch from time to time spending anywhere from $6-$12, but when she started using Shakeology as a meal replacement she told me she felt full, satisfied and that her appetite has been curbed. We started saving money because it only costs about $4 per serving, so for basically $8, we both get a meal! Plus, who actually knows what we were putting into our bodies from the food at the restaurants? At least this way we are consuming something 100% healthy! Some people eat out for lunch every day or get a gourmet coffee! And that can add up fast! While others say they don't have time for breakfast, so they skip it. Now, with a shaker glass, a blender or even a simple magic bullet a nutritious meal can be made in seconds! And... clean up is fast and easy! With that said, you can’t look at it as an extra cost on top of what you’re already spending at the grocery store as you are replacing what you would spend to purchase at least one meal's worth of groceries, every day. You actually save money! And from a juicer / juicing standpoint, this makes sense! I couldn't purchase the 70+ ingredients in a shakeology for less than what it retails for.
If you’re interested in Shakeology and want to try it first before you spend the money on it, then I have Shakeology samples to send out. However, I will ONLY send you a Shakeology sample on 2 conditions: (1) I’m your coach, and (2) You’re 100% serious about purchasing if you enjoy the taste. It costs me about $6 to send out one (1) sample, so it’s important that you’re serious about it. If I’m not your coach, you can make me your coach by clicking here (it is free to have me as your coach).
Beachbody's Shakeology truly is an amazing product, and one that I’m completely passionate about because I’ve seen it impact not only my own life, but the people I care about most, my family.
