 What is Shakeology?

Shakeology is a nutritional protein shake that provides a wide spectrum of healthy nutrients in a low-calorie formula. Whether you use it as a meal replacement for weight loss or simply to ensure your body gets all the nutrients it needs for optimal health, Shakeology takes the guesswork out of nutrition.

What’s in it?

Shakeology contains over 70 ultra high-quality ingredients conveniently located in one glass, to deliver nearly all the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy diet. It’s good for you, and good for everyone, because everyone’s diet is deficient in some of the key nutrient groups packed into just one Shakeology serving.

Protein from whey, which is highly absorbable, gives you 8 essential amino acids that help you build muscle, lose weight, support brain function, and keep your skin and bones healthy.

Shakeology recomends that you replace one meal per day with a shake along with regular exercise and a balanced diet, participants who did this experienced remarkable health improvements. It can reduce your total cholesterol, reduce LDL cholesterol, reduce cardiovascular risk, and reduce oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

Why Shakeology?

I love Shakeology because I am a “fat kid at heart” and I love to snack on sweets. It is a quick and convenient way to get complete nutrition. It supplies me with the energy I need every morning instead of coffee or carbonated beverages. It is also easier to make than most snacks and salads. I’m not a huge fan of salads so having Shakeology provide me all the benefits of a salad and so much more! For those who don’t like eating fruits or vegetables, this is a great way to get all the benefits of eating a whole bowl without actually having to. And for those who have high cholesterol, then Shakeology will help you lower your overall cholesterol and LDL as well.

How to use it

It’s very simple.

Mix 1 scoop of Shakeology with 8 oz. of water. If you like, add ice. Or if you want something more filling and maybe even more satisfying, blend your Shakeology with ice and nonfat, almond, rice, or soy milk. Shakeology dissolves easily, but blending it will give it a thicker, creamier texture. Honestly, when I make my Shakeology I always add more than 8 ounces because I think it’s too thick! The more liquid you add the thinner it gets. Instead of water, I use unsweetened almond milk and shake. It is great for when I’m too lazy to use the blender 🙂
