Most of y’all have probably heard me rave about Shakeology at one point or another. I mean, who doesn’t love a superfood shake that’s actually delicious?
Up until this point, I only had my own experiences with it and those of my friends and fellow coaches to back up how much I love this stuff. However, today’s the day, folks, where I have even more to go off of!
How I Found Shakeology
First and foremost, if you’ve never heard of it before, Shakeology is a meal-replacement shake by Beachbody that’s choc full of vitamins, minerals and superfoods. Unlike a number of other meal or protein shakes out there, it not only TASTES awesome, but it makes you feel great because it’s packed full of so many wonderful things!
Prior to adding Shakeology to my daily routine, I had the WORST junk food cravings and a positively monster sweet tooth! For me, eating healthy (and making healthy choices) ALWAYS seemed like a battle. Finally though, after a year of disbelief and full on doubt that this shake was everything it was claimed to be, I decided to take the plunge and give it a try.
I knew that I felt GOOD while I was drinking it but it wasn’t until I RAN OUT that I realized just how much it had been helping me control my junk food cravings and sweet tooth. I literally STALKED my UPS driver until he brought that package to my door and I gave him a HUGE hug. #crazybutdontcare
The Awesome Stuff
I must have read and re-read the nutrition facts a million times to wrap my mind around all the good stuff that’s packed into these shakes. I mean, there’s everything from pre- and probiotics to phytonutrients, to protein and amino acids! No wonder it makes you feel fantastic when you compare it to, say, your favorite candy bar. Haha!
What’s more, my father-in-law, who had been taking cholesterol meds for YEARS and was barely under control started drinking Shakeology every day and completely QUIT his meds (with his doctor’s approval). When he went in for his 90 day bloodwork, his cholesterol was lower than it had been even WITH MEDS!!
And NOW beyond the personal testimonies, it has been CLINICALLY proven to do what Beachbody coaches have claimed it could do for YEARS!!
The Awesomeness Has Been Backed Up!
An independent 90-day clinical study was done with 50 individuals to test how effective Shakeology is. All the participants drank Shakeology for breakfast and lunch for 90 days, carefully recorded their adherence to the program, checked in every 30 days, and made NO OTHER CHANGES in their diets and their exercise regimens.
After 90 days, the results were pretty darn staggering, IMHO: Overall, the 50 people in the trial lost anywhere from 9-24 pounds; they saw their total cholesterol go down by 7-50%; they had fewer cravings for junk food and generally wanted smaller portions; AND, their blood sugar levels went down by 5-19%!
