So what is all of the hype about Shakeology?
During the Spring of 2014 I noticed a huge increase in posts on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter revolving around Shakeology. I had absolutely no idea what it was and honestly thought it was a scam. Over time I became more and more curious about the product…mainly because of the benefits associated with the shakes and the amazing fitness results people were talking about! I have had stomach and digestive issues for several years now and since one of the benefits listed is to improve digestion, I gave the shakes a shot. At the same time, I ordered the 21 day fix plan and joined a challenge group via Facebook.
Within one week of drinking Shakeology I saw a huge change in my body. My digestive issues didn’t seem to be as bad, but I chalked that up to being a coincidence. Another week went by and my issues were even better. I couldn’t believe it. I had spent years trying to eliminate gluten and wheat, avoiding dairy, eating better, etc. but nothing really made the terrible IBS symptoms go away.
Combined with eating the right amount of foods (the 21 day fix portions out food groups for you) and drinking the Shakeology it was like living an entirely new life. Now, my problem was that Shakeology is expensive. It is 129.95 for a 30 day supply. I am a teacher…so I don’t have a ton of extra money floating around! After I was done with my first round of Shakeology I made the decision to stop drinking the shakes because of the cost. I had just bought a house and was planning a wedding so spending extra money wasn’t ideal. Three days after I stopped drinking the shakes, not only did my energy levels go WAY down, but my stomach started acting up again. It was UNREAL. I also noticed that I began to snack more than I should have been. Shakeology has over 15 grams of protein which helps keep the body feel full and therefore reduces cravings and unnecessary snacking.
After weighing out the benefits of the shakes, I decided to bite the bullet and spend the money. It has been WELL worth the money. Combined with a healthy eating plan, I have lost 15 lbs and am still losing. Friends have had success with this and just recently my mom started to see success as well (with her stomach issues and weight).
Something that helps me with the cost aspect is becoming a coach. As a Beachbody coach, I receive a 25% discount on ALL products. Isn’t that crazy?!
