Yes, it’s true… Beachbody has mastered cramming a TON of healthy ingredients into one shake. When we say that it’s like eating 5 healthy salads we aren’t fully giving you the picture of what that actually looks like. I love this visual~ makes it crystal clear how much good food is in one shake. It also gives a great cost comparison for those who may think it’s too expensive to drink Shakeo daily. So what does all this good stuff do for me?
I’ll be honest, I was skeptical at first. I have tried many other shakes and drinks so I felt a bit leery of the benefits a few friends were bragging about. Didn’t take me long after drinking them to realize I no longer crashed around 2-3 p.m. I had energy throughout the entire day. I didn’t feel like I was dragging after school and had plenty of energy to get us fed and out the door to our next activity. So my energy level definitely increased. I also was able to curb a lot of my cravings with my shake. I’d use it in the evenings when I’d crave chocolate or sweets. (for those of you who know me well I am a chocoholic, seriously, my struggle is real.) Or mid-morning when I was craving something salty. (yes, I am also a saltaholic, so I am on both ends of the naughty food spectrum, lol) The thing I began to love was that I could tailor my shake to curb whatever I was craving. There are so many recipes out there that there is NO WAY you can’t find one to curb that craving. Check out my Shakeo recipes and you will see how easy it is to make shakeo taste like other things you love but aren’t healthy. I was losing weight while drinking my shake, and it may be because I was no longer acting upon my unhealthy food cravings. Instead I’d turn to my Shakeo and whip up something to get me through that craving.
So the next thing that I noticed after drinking Shakeo was that my hair began to grow like a weed, it was a lot thicker, too. And my face/skin was needing less makeup to give it a glow and look healthy. I was really loving those benefits as I do not like to wear a lot of makeup but sometimes ya just can’t help it.
After about a month of drinking Shakeo I realized my knees were feeling a lot better. I no longer needed to take an anti-inflamatory first thing in the morning. I could actually get out of bed without feeling like I was 90! It was awesome. I have struggled with severe pain and inflammation in my knees for years. Autumn and winter months are brutal. But not this past year. While I cannot claim that Shakeology cures arthritis I can speak with a lot of experience and I can tell you, with my whole heart, that nothing else changed in my life except for me drinking shakeo. I continued to eat as I have for several years and I continued working out the same. So I chalk up this past year’s successful weaning off of anti-inflamatories (ibuprofen and naproxen) to my Shakeology.
Long list of benefits in my personal life. It’s my go-to shake daily, and I will always find a way to continue to drink it! I’d love to answer any questions you might have about Shakeology… comment or email me any time.
