About these Shakes…
My health and wellness journey started for two reasons….I wanted to look better on the outside and wanted to feel better on the inside. I knew for sure I had to start working out again but I also knew I needed to majorly overhaul my diet. I had become lazy and disengaged with what I was feeding my body and I was definitely paying the price! I, like most people, have a crazy hectic schedule so most days I would grab the quickest, easiest thing to eat which often times ended up being either packaged or fast food. By the end of 2017 I felt absolutely terrible most days. I had chronic headaches, I was always tired and I was getting colds/sinus infections like every other week. I had begun to permanently live on antibiotics and even they weren’t doing anything but depleting all the good bacteria in my body. In short, I was miserable.
What I didn’t realize at the time was how directly related my poor health was to the bad food choices I was making. Fast forward to almost a year later and I am so grateful that I stumbled upon one product in particular that has honestly changed my life you guys….Shakeology. I didn’t set out to find a meal-replacement shake or a magical elixar that would shed the weight overnight but instead was totally randomly handed a sample packet of Shakeology right after I made the decision to get my act together and I was almost immediately hooked! For most people getting the right nutrition and enough of it is challenging these days. For me, it is almost impossible given all the food allergies I have. I didn’t even realize how incomplete my diet was before incorporating the shakes which are LOADED with super-foods, antioxidants, pre- and probiotics and of course protein!
What I love about these shakes is they deliver in one quick meal over 23 vitamins and minerals through 70 whole food ingredients! I usually start my day off with a shake in the morning because it fills me up, gives me the energy I need for the day, and curbs cravings that keep me from reaching for the chips or cookies throughout the day like I had been doing! Drinking one of these in the morning also really helped me because before these shakes I almost always skipped breakfast. I would rush out the door, go to Starbucks everyday and get a Venti Caramel Macchiato (which not only was a ridiculously expensive habit but also loaded with sugar!) and then end up snacking all morning until we went out to lunch. Thinking I was saving myself calories by not eating breakfast what I was really doing was the exact opposite. Studies show that people who eat a nutritious breakfast:
Tend to be leaner
- Have more energy
- Have a faster metabolism
- Have less junk food cravings
- Snack less throughout the day
So not only was I NOT saving calories but I was slowing down my metabolism and getting absolutely no nutrition in whatsoever. As soon as I swapped my macchiato for a chocolate shake in the morning my energy sky rocketed. I no longer had the mid-morning crash that I dreaded every day and with the increased energy the shakes provide I was able to start really working out to where in no time at all I was seeing major results.
What I am really impressed with though is the amount of nutrition that each shake contains. With all my dietary restrictions I was not even coming close to getting all the vitamins and minerals we all need on a daily basis. I was feeling the effects of my poor diet in major ways and almost immediately after I started drinking one shake a day it became apparent just how badly my body had been craving proper nutrition. These shakes have so many good-for-you ingredients in one little package it couldn’t be easier to give your body what it needs to run the way it should. Take a look below for all the different nutrient groups one packet contains:
After incorporating these shakes into my daily meal plan for the last eight months the difference in my health in staggering! My headaches are all but gone, my energy is through the roof, I have not had even ONE sinus infection or even a cold ALL YEAR, my metabolism is much quicker and I even sleep better! I almost feel like a whole new person….it truly has been amazing and my own personal results have far surpassed what I could have even ever imagined. You guys, I am telling you this product worked for me. I am not saying it will be for everyone, and if you have special dietary concerns or health conditions it is always smart to consult your doctor before using any new products but these shakes made all the difference in the world for me. If anyone would like to try a packet just let me know and I can mail you out one totally on me. That is how much I believe in this shake you guys. Also, if you would like more info just let me know or are curious how to try them out for yourselves you can follow the link below:
This product is also great because if you don’t like it for some reason there is a 30 day money back guarantee right from the founder of the company. So really you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! I sincerely believe in this product you guys. I use it everyday and it has been a key part of how I have turned my own life around. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you have. I also have tons of really great recipes to mix up the standard flavors and keep life interesting!
