Shakeology

Here is a great tool that is going to help you with sharing Shakeology.

From the Beachbody FAQ:

At just over $4 per serving, Shakeology is an incredible value. Each serving packs up to 17g of protein per serving along with whole-food nutrition from some of the most nutrient-dense superfoods on the planet. This combination of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, phytonutrients and rare adaptogens is unparalleled. Beachbody is exceptionally proud of the benefits Shakeology delivers. Beachbody makes great efforts to ensure the high quality and purity of ingredients- when all of this is factored in, the value is truly impressive.

Each serving contains the same nutritional value as:

3 cups of romaine lettuce
4 cups of raw mushrooms
1 shot of wheatgrass
1 bowl of exotic fruit
3 raw onions
7 raw carrots
4 cups of non-fat yogurt
4 cups of red radishes
4 cups of raw broccoli
1 cup of peas
AND
10 cups of cauliflower

Buying all of these ingredients individually would cost approximately $41 versus just $4 for one serving of Shakeology!

From the Beachbody blog:

One of our most successful Team Beachbody Coaches wanted to take a moment to share her thoughts on some of the most common Shakeology myths floating around. Here’s what she had to say!

Myth #1: Shakeology is just a protein shake.
Meaning just a shake that provides extra protein. I can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for any shake. But, all shakes are not created equal—especially ones that contain superfoods. Shakeology is a very nutrient-dense shake.

You’d have to eat a whole lot of different foods to get the fiber, phytonutrients, protein, vitamins and minerals in a single glass of Shakeology—and it would be tough to do that for fewer than 170 calories. Truth be told, the majority of people are way more nutrient deficient, than they are protein deficient. So why would Beachbody have created just a protein shake?

 

Myth #2: Shakeology is just a bunch of extracts, with no whole-food ingredients.
Whenever it’s possible and sustainable for the formula, the superfoods in Shakeology are whole ingredient powders processed in a way to help preserved in their nutrient value. It’s more difficult to source these specialty ingredient, but Beachbody has a whole team of scientists whose mission it is to help maximize the nutrition in every ingredient used in Shakeology. Imagine trying to eat all those superfoods! Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.

When you compare other shakes against Shakeology, take a look at the calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrate amounts, but also look at the ingredients. For instance, you might notice other shakes have zero grams of sugar.

How do you think those shakes achieve that? Hint, it’s not natural, as even fruit has sugar in it. Shakeology has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.

 

Myth #3: Shakeology is expensive.
To anyone who feels this product is expensive I know that I have not done my diligence in breaking down its real value. Most healthy shakes out there cost between $3 and $10. Shakeology, at $4.33 per shake, comes in on the low end of the average.

When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you’re buying 30 of your shakes upfront. And, means you’ll spend less money at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. I cannot duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients for the price.

 

Myth #4: Shakeology is only for weight loss.
Most shakes are marketed this way. Shakeology is about health. When you put the right nutrients in your body, you may ultimately have more energy, fewer cravings, and feel better. As a result, you might eat less and become more active. With Shakeology, weight loss is a byproduct of dense nutrition and a healthier lifestyle.

When was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and battling against a ton of cravings? That is because you may have been nutrient deficient. Because it’s so nutrient rich, Shakeology helps you in your battle to lose weight.

Shakeology isn’t magic. It’s clean, dense nutrition made super easy. It’s my family’s “fast food” on the counter.

Most of you saw by way of social media that I was a speaker at the New Leader Conference this past weekend. One of the presentations I got to sit in on was by Darin Olien, co-creator of Shakeology. His educational session really got me thinking about how Shakeology has made an impact on my life, and I thought I’d share some of my thoughts with you!!

Many of you have been following my fitness journey over the past five years. When I started as a Beachbody customer, I went through the Insanity program without Shakeology. I thought it was too expensive and figured I didn’t need it. Guess what?? I only lost 2 pounds by the end of the first month!!

I quickly learned that nutrition makes up 80% of your results. I was eating low fat and fat free foods but not really focusing on what I was putting into my body. I thought if I had a Diet Pepsi instead of regular Pepsi or sugar free creamer instead of regular creamer that I was doing the right thing. I was wrong!!

What I learned is that the quality of the food you eat is far more important than the calories. I was never a shake drinker, but when I committed to trying 30 days of Shakeology, I got better results. I lost 9 pounds on my second month of Insanity after I started drinking Shakeology and paying attention to the food I was putting in my body.

I started drinking my shake for lunch because it was easy to throw together as I was making food for the boys. I noticed after starting Shakeology was that I was no longer getting that afternoon crash. Shakeology saved my butt!! My hair started looking healthier, my skin cleared up, and my digestion became regular.

I have IBS and I’ve had it my whole life. I haven’t had problems with it since starting Shakeology unless I eat something that I shouldn’t be eating. In the beginning I was gassy and bloated, so I cut my full scoop in half for two weeks. After that I tried two weeks of ¾ scoop and after a month I was able to use a full scoop for each shake. I noticed I had a sensitivity to peanut butter, so I started adding almond butter instead. Milk affected my digestion so I tried it with water and almond milk. If regular Shakeology stills bothers you after taking these steps, try switching to vegan Shakeology. It’s all about finding the right combination for your body!!

I gave it 30 days to see how I felt about Shakeology. Now I drink it every day, not just when it’s convenient! Shakeology is a Monday thru Sunday thing for me. It’s my multivitamin! Shakeology has the right carb to protein ratio to make up a complete meal and it’s convenient to make and take on the go.

Shakeology isn’t a protein shake and it’s not a weight loss shake. There’s nothing comparable!! I drink it because it makes me feel good and I care about good, quality nutrition. When I drink Shakeology, I’m not tired. I noticed that I had too many carbs on my trip, and I had brain fog. I wasn’t as focused. When I drink Shakeology, I’m regular and my cravings decrease.

It’s one meal a day that I don’t have to think about and it’s super easy to take on vacation. I brought my shaker and some packets and made my shake in my hotel room for breakfast, lunch or snack every day while I was gone. I feel off when I don’t drink it now!!

Shakeology serves a different purpose for people of different ages. My dad has high cholesterol, and he was able to go off his meds by simply making the choice to drink Shakeology every day. A lot of you might be pregnant, and in that case I would consult your doctor. Every physician has a different approach but I have several coaches and customers who were able to drink Shakeology while pregnant and nursing.

When you break down the cost, Shakeology is about $4 a day. If you combine all the drive thrus, coffee shop runs and extra snacks I was eating before, Shakeology actually is actually the cheaper option!! It’s not an addition to my grocery budget, it’s replacing the crap I was buying and eating before.

I hope this has helped give you some perspective on Shakeology! Look at your individual situation. It might start as a weight loss option or a portion control helper, but it can transform into a healthy new lifestyle. You have nothing to lose!!

Knowledge is power

Knowledge is power, but you can also use your own testament to the product to share with potential customers. I can’t pronounce half the ingredients in Shakeology, much less be able to tell you what they do for your body without spending days looking up each ingredient, etc. And well….who has time for that?!?

What do I know about Shakeology is this….

  1. It’s a WHOLE FOOD
  2. It contains no processed ingredients, chemicals, or artificial sugars
  3. I can tell when I’m not drinking it vs. not
  4. It curbs my hunger

  7. My skin, hair, and nails are healthier because of it and I rarely ever get sick bc I have a vitamin rich breakfast.
  8. One scoop is like going to the salad bar 5 times and filling my plate with a variety of fruits and veggies
  9. It is my daily dose of dense nutrition
  10. It comes in Regular Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry with Vegan options in Chocolate and Tropical Strawberry.
