What is this stuff?
Shakeology is the Ferrari of all meal replacement shakes. It is hands down the most nutrient-dense, low-calorie health shake on the planet, providing the widest array of super foods, vitamins and minerals from around the world. And yes, it’s true –there is nothing more beneficial on the market today.
Not only will it help you lose weight the healthy way, it fights junk food cravings, increases your energy levels, and improves your digestion. Instead of a meal replacement, some people use it as a supplement to get all the nutrients their body needs for optimal health (this is for those that don’t want to lose weight, or want to gain weight).
What’s in it?
Shakeology is 100% natural and contains over 70 ultra high-quality ingredients from around the world to give your body all the nutrients it needs to maintain a healthy diet. It contains protein from whey, which is highly absorbable. It gives you 8 essential amino acids that help build muscle, lose weight, support brain function, and keep your skin and bones healthy. It has vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to boost your immune system and help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, blood pressure and stroke. It has phytonutriends to support immune funtion along with anti-inflammatory properties. The prebiotics help support your digestive and immune health. The digestive enzymes help the digestion of foods and increase the absorption rate of those foods for optimum health.
It’s $130 for a month’s supply?! That’s too expensive.
You’ll actually SAVE money if you replace it for one meal a day. On average, people spend $8-$14 for lunch at a full-service restaurant, whereas Shakeology is roughly $4 a serving. Keep in mind that you’re fueling your body with the stuff it needs, which translates to less cravings and more natural energy throughout the day.

Is it safe for pregnant or nursing women?
I drank Shakeology before, during and after pregnancy. I’ll quote the co-creator Isabelle Daikeler: “It can only enhance this new life you’re creating.” But because we don’t know your health history, it’s always important to run it by your doctor first.
What will I experience when I drink Shakeology?
Personally, I felt the benefits after drinking it every day for a week.
I noticed the weight fall off after a month.
The instant benefit I felt was a reduction in cravings, which is huge for me –especially at night!
- Here are a few more benefits:
- Help with weight loss
- Increase energy
- Reduce cravings
- Promote healthy digestion
- Reduce cholesterol
- Reduce stress
- Reduce migraines
- Reduce cardiovascular risk
- Reduce oxidative damage
- All around “feel good” feeling
Why do you drink it?
I hate to admit this, but I don’t eat veggies. I don’t like the smell. I don’t like the texture. I never have. Drinking Shakeology fills all of my nutritional gaps, and it tastes way better than a salad, it’s easier to make, it’s more filling and a lot more nutritious! I drink the chocolate flavor to get my daily chocolate fix, and the vanilla when I want to make a creamy vanilla frapuccino!
Besides, let’s face it, the food we eat today has no comparison to the nutritional value it used to have a thousand years ago or even 50 years ago. Sadly, clean eating isn’t enough anymore. Shakeology fuels me with every superfood, digestive enzyme, pre and probiotic, phytonutrients… and so much more.
How do you prepare it?
Mix one scoop of Shakeology with one cup of water —add ice to get a milkshake! If you want something more filling, add nonfat almond, rice or soy milk. For a boost of energy, mix in with black coffee! Blending i will give you a thicker, creamier texture. I like it thinner so I double the amount of liquid.
