How I Shake it
So what do you know about Shakeology? Have you heard about it or have you heard about BeachBody? You know who they are even if you don't realize it, have you stayed up late watching infomercials or woken up early to find not even the news on. You know that workout program you want to try, P90x, Chalean Extreme, Insanity and Turbo Fire? Well these are all the same company and Beachbody created Shakeology to accompany their program to help everyone get the results they want while continuing to get all the needed nutrition in one simple shake.
Shakeology is more than just a meal replacement, it is a whole meal that will provide you with the protein you need to fuel your body after a hard workout. It will give you the essential amino acids that will develop long lean muscles help keep you fuller for a longer period. One of my favorite things is that it as Prebiotics and digestive enzymes, the added fiber isn't the only benefit to the prebiotics and digestive enzymes, these also aid in the absorption of nutrients and helps boost the immune system. It provides super foods that purchasing each individually would put a dent in your pocket book.
This drink has 70 healthy ingredients that come in two delicious flavors, Chocolate (for nutritional) and Greenberry (for nutritional). For one drink that has 150 Calories, 1g fat and 18g of protein, not to mention B vitamins that will help increase your energy, Calcium to strengthen bones, whey protein, "Shakeology includes whey protein isolate, an easily absorbable source of high-quality protein that's ideal for building and maintaining lean muscle mass. It also helps keep your blood sugar steady, reducing hunger and junk food cravings. Essential amino acids, found in protein, help the body repair muscle tissue and heal wounds; support the brain to promote calmness and alertness; and reduce hunger pangs. The whey protein in Shakeology provides a highly bioavailable source of essential amino acids." (source)
Since drinking Shakeology on a daily basis my fluctuation of weight has decreased, I eat less throughout the morning and don't feel as tempted to dip into the candy cabinet at work. I also have my 78 year old (don't tell her you know her age) drinking Shakeology every morning. She recently told me that in the 2 months that she has been drinking Shakeology she has lost 10 pounds and this is purely from replacing her morning meal.
