When I first found out about Shakeology, I was very skeptical. My first thoughts were I don't want to take something like "slim fast". I was also nervous about putting all these ingredients in my body-what were all these things? So I decided to do my research and by research I didn't mean just asking people. I wanted to see facts and doctors opinions and studies on this powdered drink. The more I researched, the more I became interested. I did show my doctor and he did say not to take my multi-vitamin if I was going to drink this everyday. The other thing that I loved about Shakeology was that they guarantee it, so even if the bag is completely empty and I was unsatisfied then they would give me 100% of my money back, so I had nothing to lose. So I placed my order. While waiting for my order I decided to go to GNC and Wegmans, I picked out a bunch of things I could find similar to Shakeology and gave them a try, because they were all cheaper. What I soon discovered was they did not offer everything that was in Shakeology and they did not taste as good either.
A couple things about the taste. This may seem funny, but the cleaner I ate-the better it tasted. I purchased Chocolate, because I am a chocolate lover and prior to drinking Shakeology had a horrible sweet tooth. I made it with ice, water, and PB2 or almond butter or peanut butter. It tasted so good. I drank it for lunch and it was right after my workout. Refueling my body with everything it needed after some good exercise. After weeks of drinking it I started to crave it and I noticed it had killed my sweet tooth cravings. I even noticed when it was that time of month and those two days prior-I normally would be ravenous and want every sugary item I could get my hands on, no longer occurred. I found myself feeling fuller and not binge eating when the kids got home form school-I was satisfied. On the days I go out to lunch or have a salad, I will split my 1 scoop and have a Shakeology at 3pm and then at 7pm for snacks. My husband starting drinking it as well and can not believe how much he loves it and feels full for 2-3 hours after consuming it. My three children love it and actually like drinking it before a game because they said they don't feel sick to their stomach like they would have a meal before a game. Your feeling full and satisfied because it is fueling your body with all the vitamins and nutrients it needs.
I also love the natural boost of energy you get and how quick and easy it is. I joke and say its my new fast food. I included a link to a video above about a clinical study that was done on Shakeology. If this is something your interested in trying, I say do it- you wont regret it. I can not tell you all the people I know that are drinking it and benefiting from it in so many different ways. I thought I would try it for 30 days and then get my money back, that wasn't the case- I have been drinking it for 10 months now.
