Good question right? There is no right answer. What works for everyone differs from person to person. My formula is simple.
- I workout daily
- I follow a 80/20 rule of clean eatinggreater undrstanding and appreciation for what I drink daily
- I drink Shakeology – the delivery system of the most nutrient dense botanicals in the world (my favourite flavours are Vegan Chocolate and Cafe Latte)
I recently sat in on a Beachbody team call where our guest speaker was Darin Olien, the co-creator of Shakeology. Also known as the ingredient hunter. His passion for what he does and his quest to help others live a healthy life is truly inspiring. As I listened, drinking my shake nonetheless, I walked away with a
What exactly is Shakeology?
“Shakeology® is the most delicious, nutrient-dense, superfood-packed protein shake on the planet. It’s made with the healthy stuff you should be eating every day, but typically don’t. Shakeology’s the perfect combination of proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics. Plus, it is also formulated with many rare ingredients, including adaptogens, camu-camu, and maca root—things we don’t usually get from an ordinary diet. So whether you use Shakeology to help support weight loss, or drink it to help support your health, this powerful and delicious shake is Your Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition®.” – Beachbody
What are its benefits and how has it benefited me?
- Helps increase energy and overall feel so much better & healthier
- Greatly decreased, practically eliminated my Rheumatoid Arthritis inflammation and pain in my hands (my own personal observation)
- Keeps me full longer
- Reduce junk food cravings and helps with weight loss
- My hair and nails are growing like crazy
- I’m a calmer person and a better mom. I learned a new fancy word during the call – Adaptogens: a natural substance that helps the body adapt to stress
I have only been drinking Shakeology since July 2016. Truth be told, I wasn’t prepared to pay the price ($155.95 CAD), like many of you I couldn’t justify it. So I started drinking a “cheaper” type of shake. After all my research, while some nutrients and minerals kind of compare, there truly isn’t anything else in the market that has all the superfood ingredients in it.
To put things into perspective I would have to buy $40 in groceries to add up all the nutrients in ONE scoop. Enough said!
Shakeology is $5 CAD per scoop. Some might not even bat an eye at that, however, those who do I bet also wouldn’t think twice about getting a $5 coffee at Starbucks – just saying. So why would we not spend it on our health?
Here’s what I learned from the call. Beachbody will not compromise quality for product, so yes the price of this product will be higher. I can 100% respect that.
Bottom of the Bag Guarantee:
To show Beachbody’s confidence in Shakeology, it is sold with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Customers may return Shakeology packages that have been opened and used, even if the bag is completely empty.
There really is so much more to shakeology than what I can fully explain, this video gives a great visual.
