I have seen a lot of post and pictures on instagram and other places about herbalife and
advocare, I have tried to find the ingredients for these products and have been
unsuccessful other than finding things that are in it that I can't even
pronounce. I can't understand why people use either of these products, when
there is an amazing shake out there that you can find the ingredients for and
pronounce them.So I wanted to write a post to explain both HOW I feel about Shakeology
and WHY I feel the way I do. I will start by saying that yes, I am a Beachbody coach.
Yes, I get paid for selling Shakeology. I also get paid for selling an abundance of other
nutritional supplements, meal replacements, vitamins, nutritionals, bars, etc. I bet you
didn't know that. Why? Because I don't use them myself. When I started coaching, I
didn't really think I would do much with this or that it would be my full time job till after I went
to Summit a coach conference and I saw coaches making six figures a year and
paying mortgages off etc. You see, I am a Beachbody coach, first and
foremost, because I am passionate about wanting to HELP people. If there is
a product that I wouldn't use I would never recommend it to
others! If I believe a product (that I have used myself) is going to improve
your health and get you the best results possible, you're going to hear about
it. A lot, I will talk about, post about it on Facebook and tell my experience
with it. WHY? Because I am passionate about wanting others to get healthier and
live long lives. Am I going to push it on you? No. When you tell me you
want to get the best results ever am I going to recommend it? Hell yes. Because
my ultimate goal is to help people.
Which brings me to my next topic, taste. I have heard people say other shakes
taste good and people say they didn't like the taste of shakeology. I personally
love the taste of it! Yes you have to experiment with recipes and figure out what
works for you best. At first I wasn't fond of the texture of it but I educated myself
about what was in it versus these other shakes before I even became a coach. I
decided I could look past the texture of it because I knew I was FUELING MY BODY
with excellent nutrients! Shortly after starting to use shakeology I became
dairy free mainly it was because of my sinuses. But then I did research about
what dairy does to our bodies and how it destroys our system over years
of consuming it. Cow's milk is not made for humans. We do not have the
digestive system to break it down properly. That's it! When you EDUCATE
YOURSELF TO THE BENEFITS of the food you're putting in your body (or not putting
in your body!) you begin to look at it in a whole new light. Milk didn't turn
into an "I CAN'T eat that food", it turned into an "I could eat it if I wanted,
but I know the health benefits of NOT eating it". I feel better, I am not
bloated all the time from it because my system is having a hard time digesting
it. That's the same with Shakeology (only I still swear it tastes great!) When
you educate yourself to the benefits of Shakeology, you look forward to it. You know
you're nourishing your body. You know you're taking that extra step toward your
health and your results. If you're looking for a milkshake, go have a milkshake.
If you're looking for great tasting nutrition, then have a Shakeology.
When you educate yourself to the benefits, you slowly
start to see just what is in Shakeology. There are numerous other "health
shakes" on the market, too many to count, that probably cost a lot less and
taste a lot better. If you're only looking for taste and cost, then by all
means, buy them! BUT, when you truly put your HEALTH first, and flip over the
bag of Shakeology and COMPARE it to the rest of the shakes that are out on the
market, you'll very quickly see that there is NO comparison. I can't
stress this enough, there is no other whole foods meal replacement shake on the
market that even comes close to the nutrition you get from Shakeology.
That's it. Shakeology has over 70 superfoods, antioxidants, wheatgrass, maca,
digestive enzymes, pre and probiotics, the list goes on. When's the last time you
priced out wheatgrass, maca, digestive enzymes or probiotics? If you were to buy
just those four ingredients separately to use daily you would already be spending
well over what you'd spend on Shakeology in one month. And when's the
last time you tasted wheatgrass or maca? Let me tell you, I have eaten
some wheatgrass and maca and I felt like I just drank the clumps of grass
from my front yard after mowing, it is some pretty nasty shit! I
get nauseated now just smelling wheatgrass, and there is no
concoction big enough that I've been able to make to mask the taste of maca in a
smoothie. And you're telling me I can get both of these in Shakeology for a
fraction of the cost AND it tastes great! You better believe I'm choosing
Shakeology. And if it didn't taste as great as it does? With all those benefits,
I'd be crazy NOT to drink it.
All this, and I haven't even gotten to the benefits yet! So many people see so
many benefits when they use Shakeology DAILY. You need to use it daily to
see the benefits. Just like eating healthy or working out for one day isn't going
to make you lose a year of weight gained, Shakeology also has a cumulative
effect. Some results are going to be subtle. Recently when discussing Shakeology
and the benefits with my sister and mom, I realized that my bad shoulder that has
degenerative joint disorder in
it and my back that has a T-Spine compression fracture haven't been bothering in
months. I never really thought about it. But when they brought it to my
attention that since starting shakeology I haven't complained about my neck,
back or shoulder bothering me. I have had pain in those areas since 2007 after
in injury. I learned to live with it though it was excruciating pain every day.
I went to chiropractors, orthopedics, massage therapist and all that money spent
only provided a temporary relief for about a week. I've noticed my skin clear
up, I have more energy, I don't have as many cravings.
For others it's drastic. One of my coaches challengers dropped her cholesterol
by over 50 points once she started using Shakeology and working out with TurboFire.
Others have been able to get off of prescription medications, including diabetes medications,
lower their cholesterol and blood pressure, and improve their digestion.
what's your health worth? What ARE you spending $4 a day on? Are you going out
to eat for lunch? Are you stopping at Starbucks in the morning? Maybe you're not
spending $4 a day, but what about $28 a week? Are you going out for drinks on
the weekend? Are you getting a manicure or pedicure? Buying some new
clothes? The price of Shakeology may seem like a lot up front, especially
because when's the last time you bought 30 days worth of meals at one time, but
I promise you, your health is worth it. YOU'RE WORTH IT! People are so quick to
spend money on material or useless things that will be gone in no time, and will
not effect their lives in any positive way in the long run. Forget about short
term gratification. Stop putting a dollar sign on the importance of your health.
Would you rather spend the money now and be healthier or pay later when you have
medical bills that you are drowning in or even the ultimate price
death. VALUE YOUR HEALTH.
