Is Shakeology a Weight Loss Shake?

I will never call Shakeology a “Weight loss shake”, because it is an integral part of my nutrition for the rest of my life. Can it help with weight loss? Absolutely! When you feed your body the right stuff, it stop craving the bad stuff…hence you lose weight! Shakeology has been a NON-Negotiable part of my Daily Diet for 5 years. Not only my own diet, but my kids and husband as well. I LOVE knowing that I am fueling my body every single day with 70 TOP superfoods grown in the most nutrient dense soils around the world with the highest quality of care and attention paid to every single detail. There is nothing artificial within this superfood dense nutrition shake, just REAL FOOD! Before I drank shakeology, i was bloated a lot of the time, I craved sweets, and I just never really felt satisfied. I have now learned its because I was not giving my cells real food, just a lot of processed junk it had no idea what to do with. So…my body kept craving food trying to fill that void! I do NOT go a day without, because I feel the difference. I feel it in my energy levels, my gut, and I start craving bad stuff again!

Why is shakeology so Important for your day to day nutrition?

•Side effect of giving your body the Correct nutrition daily? You lose weight!

•The proteins, fiber, and healthy fats will help you feel fuller longer, so you’re less likely to snack.

•Your body feels nourished to help reduce cravings for junk food. (cellularly satisfied!!)

•Having healthy energy helps you power through your workouts.

I would love for you to listen to this 9 minute podcast on the Science behind Shakeology. It will help to explain WHY Shakeology is so important for your overall health and to help you fight the toxins in our environment that are all around us.

There are Misconceptions out there about “Protein”, “Weight loss” and “Health Shakes”, so let me clear up a few.

#1 Misconception: Shakeology is a PROTEIN Shake. Meaning just a shake that provides extra protein. I can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for ANY shake. But, all shakes are not created equal, especially ones that contain just protein. Shakeology is a very nutrient dense MEAL REPLACEMENT. By replacement I mean it is the nutritional equivalent to FIVE plates of salad. I don’t know about you, I do love salad, but I don’t care to eat five a day and certainly couldn’t do it for 180 calories. Shakeology makes it very easy to cut your calories LOW, without subsequently cutting your daily volume of nutrients needed. Truth be told, the majority of people are WAY MORE nutrient deficient, than they are Protein deficient. So why just stop at a protein shake?

#2 Misconception: Shakeology is about comparing Carbs, Proteins and Fats (i.e. Macronutrients). This is not at all what makes Shakeology stand alone. It’s about EVERYTHING else. The quality of all the ingredients, where they come from and what they do for your internal health on a cellular level. Its also about what shakeology does NOT have in it. NO artificial sweeteners, NO artificial colors, NO soy, NO artificial stimulants, NO artificial flavors. The sweetener, Stevia, is from a plant base. So often I see people comparing shakeology completely on terms that are irrelevant and foregoing basic nutrition needs and food quality. There are so many “weight loss shakes” out there that are actually BAD for you! They contain ZERO nutrition and so many chemicals, and so low in calories you will be starving by your next meal!

#3 Misconception: Shakeology is not a WHOLE food. Actually, yes it is. Unlike many “processed fake” foods, most of Shakeology’s unique ingredients are imported from their countries of origin. Each superfood has a unique way of being “preserved”. It’s a very difficult and tedious process to dry a food out enough that it can be ground and stored in a bag, but not so much that it’s precious nutritional enzymes are killed deeming the it’s nutritional value, useless. If its not dried well enough, the ingredients literally can go rancid in the bag. It’s literally within a 5 degree temperature that makes the difference between keeping its nutritional integrity or burning it off. Think of doing this tedious process times 70. Thats the number of super foods (like wheat grass, chia seed, goji berries, maca root to name a few) in Shakeology that must EACH go through this process to keep its whole-food integrity. I am confident in saying it’s a form of “dry juicing”. Except with juicing you are typically not juicing this many ingredients and Shakeology is way less expensive and time-saving.

#4 Misconception: Shakeology is EXPENSIVE. To anyone who feels this product is expensive I know that I have not done my diligence in breaking down its REAL VALUE. Most people will agree that they would spend an average of $3-$7 on a HEALTHY nutritious meal. I know most store-bought salads cost even more than that, and don’t contain near the dense vitamins. But on average I think we can all agree healthy meals run between $3-$7. Shakeology at $4.30 per MEAL (you are REPLACING a meal that you’d be buying anyway) comes in on the LOW END of average. Not only are you replacing a meal, but you are also getting an entire days worth of vitamins that your body needs. So you are replacing your VITAMINS, too. Sure, you may need a specific vitamin based on your conditions, geography or age, but in general, Shakeology will provide you (and your children) with all your daily whole food vitamins. Here is my next point. When was the last time you went to your grocery store and bought THIRTY meals all at once? Typically, I’m guessing, you buy a few days worth each time. When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you are buying 30 of your monthly meals up front. Thats 30 meals LESS than you’d be spending at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. Its literally the least expensive AND the most dense nutritious daily meal my family consumes. For the price, I can not duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients.

#5 Misconception: Shakeology is a WEIGHT LOSS SHAKE. Lets face it, most shakes are marketed this way so it’s what one would assume…But here’s the thing. Anything will induce weight loss if low enough in calories. Just because you are drinking a shake,does not mean the fat will melt off. Actually, if you are not getting enough nutrients and calories you will actually inhibit your weight loss efforts. Shakeology is about HEALTH. When you put the RIGHT nutrients in your body that it needs to develop, heal, recover, repair and thrive, you will ultimately have MORE energy, LESS cravings, and FEEL better there fore you eat less and become more active. With Shakeology, weight loss becomes a BYPRODUCT of dense nutrition. To make my point, when was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy and had a ton of cravings? That is because you were nutrient deficient. Its nearly impossible, even on a perfect diet, to cut calories without cutting your volume of needed nutrients leaving your body screaming for MORE (which we manifest as cravings).

Shakeology is your BASE. Everything you do beyond that you know you’re at least covered. What if you’re at your goal weight, or need to GAIN weight? Because Shakeology is about DENSE NUTRITION you can use it as your meal base and add clean calories to it making it a 300 calorie, 500 calorie or even more… meal. Lets face it, not everyone needs to lose weight, but every needs to be healthier. And if you need to gain weight…why on EARTH would you fuel your body with all the chemicals that Ensure and Pediasure contain? Shakeology isn’t MAGIC. Its just clean dense nutrition made SUPER easy for everyone at a very affordable price. Its my families “fast food” on the counter. Yes- my family goes through 4-5 bags a MONTH because even though we all have different weight and caloric needs, we all share the same NUTRITIONAL needs.

Shakeology isn’t a weight loss shake… its a Dense, Superfood, Nutrition shake.

Weight Loss Success Stories

When I joined as a beachbody coach, I had an 8 month old son, and I ran all the time but my body did not feel like my own. I was suffering from mild depression, and I was just going through the motions. I had stopped pushing myself in my life, and stopped setting goals. I kept thinking I could do this on my own. One day I just said NO MORE! I need a goal, something to be excited about, a Challenge! I went ALL IN as a coach at the same time that I bought my Challenge pack so that I could not quit! 90 days later, and a renewed confidence-  I had lost 12 lbs, and gotten down to my wedding weight! I learned how to “Eat Clean” NOT “low fat and diet”.  The picture you see is my 2nd transformation- losing 40 lbs- after my daughter was born. I was so thankful to start with the 21 day fix 6 weeks post partum, followed by Piyo, because the second time around I didn't have the guesswork!

In My before picture I was a runner. That was the only exercise I got. Although I was burning tons of calories , I was eating horribly and the weight just wasn't coming off.
Then came along 21 day fix extreme. I chose the extreme but I wanted a challenge. I did 7 rounds of it and lost almost 40lbs. After I learned how to eat properly, I wanted to start building muscle. I researched and did hammer and chisel, then onto body beast. I haven't looked back since!!!
I am So glad that I found our team of supportive moms and dads and these amazing programs to get me fit from home while running after 3 boys and working full time!

Weight Loss Success Stories

Before Beachbody, I was so unhealthy.  I ate awful, and had horrible stomach pains all of the time.  I got winded going up just one flight of stairs!  I am young! I should not feel like an old woman in my twenties!
I decided to jump in with the 21 day fix to start, then Piyo after my knee surgery.  I went onto complete 21 day fix extreme, Hammer and chisel, 22 min Hard corps, and T25.  I have LOST 70 lbs so far and I never miss a day of Shakeology and I eat by the 21 day fix food plan to this day! I can now climb mountains, literally;)  NO more stomach pains, SO much more energy and I know my body. More than just physical though, I've also grown as a person. Beachbody has me to become the woman I am today.

Weight Loss Success Stories

My name is Becky and I started with Beachbody programs after my 2nd baby.  I started with P90X, and insanity, and found this amazing fitness community that I had no idea existed!  I was working long hours, taking care of two babies and just pushed to my limits. After falling in love with the programs, and recommending them to so many friends, I realized that you could also become a coach, and help others stay motivated and on track throughout and EARN an income as well!  I knew I needed to go all in, because I believed I could help others feel the way I did now- getting in amazing shape- all without having to leave my babies and spend hours at the gym. I needed to own my time, and beachbody “retired” me from Corporate America 2 years later.  My transformation is Physical AND financial. I am over 40, have rockin abs, and control over my future!

Weight Loss Success Stories

My name is Shyla, and I am excited to share my story to give others hope. After having three babies, recovering from two fractured vertebrae and major knee surgery, I was unhealthy, and needed a change. I needed a way to get in shape without leaving my children, and I wanted to do this to be BETTER for my children. I made the call to my friend, a coach on Wildfire Empire, who I had watched on facebook make an amazing transformation with Beachbody programs and Shakeology. She recommended the 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack so that my meal plan was covered, my 30 minute workouts, and Shakeology to give me the best results.

At first I couldn't even keep up with the modifier, but as time went on I slowly got stronger, and leaner. I did multiple rounds of 21 day fix and lost 55 pounds! Most importantly, I gained the ability to take care of myself and took Ownership of my own future.

 

Weight Loss Success Stories

I came to Jamie 4 years ago defeated. I had a baby 6 months previous, had been put on thyroid meds, which I was thought would help me lose weight, and nothing was happening. I was out of shape with no idea how to even start. I had followed Jamie’s journey with turbofire and Shakeology and decided to give it a try. I figured, Why Not?  I have nothing to lose, right?  First workout was turbofire, and I hated it. I told Jamie I was not going to finish this 90 days, but she convinced me to stick with the schedule for 2 weeks, drink my shake, and follow the clean eating guide, then re-evaluate. And thank god I did!  I fell in LOVE with turbofire, and it became the catalyst which led to me losing 50 lbs and becoming an ATHLETE!  I went on to complete 5 more beachbody programs and 4 years later I am now competing in triathlons!  I would not be where I am now without beachbody, the online fitness community, and taking a chance!
