What is Shakeology?
I understand how busy our days can get, but I also understand how important it is to eat right. I’ve learned the hard way that the key to staying fit is healthy eating. Our metabolisms only work when we feed them. If we want them to work properly we have to feed them correctly. This is where one of my favorite mottos come into play. You have to eat to lose weight!
Shakeology is a great way to stay on top of our nutritional needs.
Shakeology is a delicious, protein, and nutrient-packed superfood shake that you can add as a meal replacement on busy days, a simple snack to get you from breakfast to lunch, or as a post-workout treat that gives you everything you need. It is made from a blend of premium superfoods, proteins, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. You won’t find added sugar or artificial flavors in Shakeology.
Many of us try and eat healthy every day, but we all struggle at times to get the necessary nutrients from the foods we eat. This is where Shakeology comes in. An easy to mix, great-tasting shake that allows you to get the nutrients and vitamins, needed to live a healthy life. Shakeology can help curb cravings, builds muscle, and best of all help with general health.
Free Radical Fighters- No other protein powder offers this. Anti-oxidants like vitamins A, C, and E have properties that help fight free radical damage caused by the daily stress of life. So not only are you helping yourself get in shape but you’re preventing future stress and wear and tear on your body.
Many of us struggle with food cravings. This is where Shakeology really made a difference in my life. Having one shake is filling and with the probiotics, prebiotics, fiber, and digestive enzymes in the shake, it keeps me full and helps me stay regular and healthy. Staying full is the key to curb cravings.
Why choose Shakeology and how can it benefit you?
Shakeology helps you keep your body at peak performance levels. Beachbody offers no better all in one solution to building muscle, staying fit, and getting lean. Without the proper fuel, your body cannot perform at its best. This simple, great-tasting shake is your answer. In just two minutes you can have all your nutritional needs taken care of.
With the fast-paced world we live in now, everybody is racing to meet their deadlines or get the kids to their next event. Taking the time out to make regular, healthy meals sometimes just isn’t an option. We grab whatever is quick and easy to eat and move on to the next activity. Unfortunately, our body pays the price. These quick easy meals are often filled with tons of preservatives and do not take care of our nutritional needs. We might be getting the calories we need, but not the right nutrients. Most of those quick and easy meals are filled with empty (bad) carbs. Which fill us up in the short term, but leave us hungry an hour later. Shakeology has a low glycemic index. This means that the Carbohydrates are released slowly into your system.
Shakeology keeps you full longer. The mix of protein and fiber helps you feel full, which in turn causes you to eat less and have less craving later.
What makes Shakeology great?
Most of us are missing out on the vitamins and nutrients our body needs to function at peak performance. This causes us to be tired, lazy, and lose motivation.
This is where Shakeology plays a vital role in making sure we are in top shape. It offers us the ability to get all the vitamins and minerals we need to stay active and be healthy. Matching any multi-vitamin our there. Wouldn’t you rather drink a tasty shake that does everything in one? Shakeology packs a potent punch and offers so many health benefits for your body.
What’s in Shakeology?
- Over 70 Superfoods and Phytonutrients – Superfoods are just what the name says: Foods that naturally pack a nutritional punch. They contain antioxidants, healthy fats, fiber, and phytonutrients (The stuff in plants that keep the plants healthy and colorful. And guess what? They do the same for our bodies when we eat them).
- Kick the Sweet Tooth to the Curb – Packed full of protein, fiber, and healthy carbohydrates, Shakeology helps fill you up and changes how your body uses and needs nourishment. With its low glycemic index, it releases the carbohydrates slowly. This makes your body less “hungry” for those carbs. The protein and fiber help you feel full. As you use Shakeology, your body changes. You may find you aren’t experiencing your normal cravings and, even if you get hungry, you may find your regular go-to candy bar just doesn’t sound good anymore.

Benefits of meal replacement shake for weight loss and health
The most important meal of the day is breakfast. A mistake that many people make when trying to lose weight is they skip meals. This is about the worst thing you can do. In order to lose weight, you have to eat. Our metabolisms only work when they are fed. This is where Shakeology is the most convenient. Those mornings I am just to busy to make breakfast I can whip together a shake in two minutes and have all the nutrition I need to start my day right.
How it can work for you
Say you are like my husband and are on the go constantly? He misses meals and is constantly behind and hungry. He will reach for anything to curb his appetite, which is usually something carb-based. This process is what causes us to feel lethargic and crash midday. Instead, grab a packet of your favorite Shakeology flavor, a cup and some water or almond milk and you have a quick and easy shake on the go. A snack that delivers a big source of protein and fiber to help keep you full until you make it to your next healthy meal.
It balances out your daily intake and helps keep you away from the vending machine or food truck at work.
For those of you who already are following a healthy, balanced diet, Shakeology can be an after-workout supplement that delivers not only protein but an assortment of nutrients. That’s how I personally use Shakeology and it has worked great for me!! I grab a Beach Bar and a shake to get my full nutritional balanced post-work-meal.
No time for a workout?
Whether your schedule doesn’t allow for regular workouts or your weight is keeping you from doing the workouts you would like, just a simple Shakeology replacement shake can jump-start your weight loss even before you start exercising. Watch those pounds come off and soon you will be ready to join us in one of the amazing on-demand workouts and really get the benefits of health and fitness.
Let’s talk about boosts!!

Ready to buy?
Shakeology comes in two options:
- A resealable bag (30 servings)
- Individual packets (24 serving)
I personally use the packets. They are easy, especially since I am always on the go and when traveling you can just grab a few packs to take with you! If you are wanting to try Shakeology the packets are the best option, because you can try 3 flavors at once. The packets are available in a combo box.
There are also a variety of flavors, with most also available in a vegan mix. My personal favorite is the Vegan Chocolate.
What’s the difference between regular and vegan Shakeology?
Almost all our flavors come with a vegan option. These vegan shakes are 100 percent vegan, soy-free, and dairy-free. But you would never know it. You still taste the creamy richness of each flavor and provide a healthy meal replacement or snack option for your body. For those of you who struggle with Whey protein, this is a great solution. I personally only drink vegan shakes. They have all the same benefits as the regular shake.
$129.95 sound pricey to you? When breaking down the price it’s only $4.33 a serving.
Are you late in the morning with no time to make breakfast, or have you ever tried to pick up breakfast on your way to work for less than $5.00? Compare that one simple shake and not only do you get all the benefits of Shakeology but you actually save money.
Still, sounds excessive? Well, let’s do some comparisons. How much do you spend on that daily venti mocha from Starbucks? $4.75! Does that provide you with health or weight loss benefits? Nope, just a lot of caffeine and sugar. But guess what? Even at the $129.95 price, that makes a serving of Shakeology range between $4.33 for the 30 serving bag to $5.41 for the individual packet servings. And for about the same price as that coffee, you are giving your body the nutrients it needs!! And with our new Café Latte flavor, you can even get that great coffee flavor!!
Shakeology comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so this is an all gain, no loss solution to your fitness goals.
