Shakeology has had a great impact on my overall health since I started using it daily in 2009. I feel like many people who hear about it at the end of P90X, Insanity, or one of the other Beachbody workouts might take a glance at it but think that it’s just another protein shake. It’s not. Without me getting all scientific I’m gonna lay out *my* top 5 reasons why you should drink Shakeology daily.
It costs over $400 to buy the ingredients in Shakeology separately. Many people see the $120 price tag for a bag of Shakeology and go into “that’s too expensive” mode. The reality is it would be a huge pain in the butt for you to go out and buy the stuff yourself. Beachbody has done all the acquiring, shipping, separating, and warehousing of these goods for you. Here are pictures showing what it would look like if you bought the ingredients on your own, a display of them at Beachbody Headquarters, and a receipt from Blake Warrington showing off what each item costs.
Spend $120 to save $340. Sounds like a deal to me.
Where else can you get all of this nutrition in one place? Everything on the right hand side is what makes up most of the cost of Shakeology.
Follow a recipe and sip on it or go hardcore and scoop, mix, and shoot. Getting your daily amount of nutrition is easy with Shakeology. With 70+ ingredients there is no reason to buy Whey Protein, Vitamins, Fish Oils, Glucosamine, and every other tub or bottle of nutrition you have in your house. All of those are in Shakeology. How much counter space in the kitchen or the area on top of your fridge did you just got back without those tubs? Travel a lot? Buy the Shakeology packets and take them with you. Easy. Done.
3. Pooping And Tooting
The first week of taking Shakeology will result in more trips to the bathroom than normal. Without getting into how the ingredients work lets just say that they go to work on getting the crap out of your digestive system. Literally. A couple of years ago I gave 3 Greenberry packets to an uncle and warned him about what might happen the next couple days. He probably has 40 pounds to lose but carries it well do to having a physically demanding job. Four days later he calls me and said he just got back from the Drs. He went because he has never gone #2 so much in the past 20 years and wanted the Dr. to check him out. Everything was fine. My uncle dropped 7 pounds (of poop) in 3 days and the only thing he did differently was take Shakeology in the morning. He bought a bag and took it everyday for the next two months. In doing so he lost 20 pounds all from Shakeology helping his digestive system work properly.
Those who have a lot of weight to lose might feel the effects a couple of days longer than those who don’t. After the initial phase is over you’ll become more regular. Don’t think your out of the woods though. Those cheat meals or times when you go off your diet will bring back these effects assuming you continue to drink Shakeology daily. I could have made weight loss a whole other reason on its own but pooping and tooting is more fun to talk about.
Forget coffee. Forget Red Bull. Your body needs nutrition. Shakeology provides what your body needs to keep a steady flow of energy throughout the day. Energy drinks work for a short time period and are usually followed by a crash. Shakeology gradually brings your energy levels up so you don’t feel the ups and downs. Many don’t notice the ups and downs as they are small when you take it daily. If you don’t take Shakeology daily then you will notice the downs more than the ups. Ask any person who runs out of their bag before their next shipment gets to their house. Go 3+ days without Shakeology and you notice how sluggish you feel and possibly a little bloated. When taken regularly you’ll stop noticing how you feel because of how good you feel. Make sense.
1. Goodbye Sickness
I’m not saying that Shakeology can cure cancer or severe illnesses but it has done a great job of taking on the common cold, coughing, sore throats, and runny noses. I can’t remember the last time I had one and I feel its due to Shakeology. My nutrition levels are always high so my body is able to fight it off. I also don’t get sinus infections anymore. From the age of 11 – 29 I would always get really bad sinus infections in March. Some would last a week while others would last a couple of days. Since taking Shakeology I have not had a sinus infection. Its weird. I don’t know what the ingredients have done to cure/calm it but its gone. I did get the 24 and 48 hour flu twice in the past 3 years and I don’t think Shakeology could have stopped those. But the small annoying illnesses are almost non-existent to me anymore. Think about how many less days of work or school would be missed with using Shakeology daily. I haven’t been to the Drs. office once due to the common cold in 3 years where as I would normally visit once or twice a year before.
If your on the fence about buying Shakeology then I hope this helps make your decision easier. I cannot tell you how much money I’ve saved on other health related issues just from investing in a bag of Shakeology every month. The only way to know what Shakeology can do for you is to try it. Head on over to the Beachbody Store and pick up a bag for yourself. Vegan Chocolate is my favorite and you’re best off going with the auto ship for free shipping.
