Shakeology was the reason I got into coaching. Coaching has become much, much more to me since then... but Shakeology was the reason I started. Plain and simple, I signed up as a coach because I wanted to get a discount on a great product!
I first ordered Shakeology in November 2013 (as part of a Black Friday sale... that was the only way I could justify the price!). As I feared, once I tried it... I never wanted to stop drinking it. I immediately felt a difference in terms of mental focus and clarity. My mood also improved... I am NOT a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, but with Shakeology, the day seems a little more bearable and I'm a little less grumpy.
Around the same time I started drinking Shakeology, I was also working to eliminate processed sugar from my diet. I can't tell you how much Shakeology helped with this! It's sweetened with just a small amount of fructose for taste, and a small amount of stevia (a plant-based sweetener made from a powdered leaf, with a high sweetness for volume). If I'm craving a candy bar, a few sips of chocolate or vanilla Shakeology keeps me away from the vending machine. This can be so helpful, whether you're trying to stay away from sugar to lose weight, or for the direct health benefits of improved energy and mood.
Shakeology also contains probiotics that help with healthy digestion; adaptogens that help the body respond well to stress; and a full complement of supergreens, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It's made from real, whole food ingredients, simply ground into a powder—nothing chemical or artificial—and the company takes the utmost care in sourcing and processing its ingredients. I'm very careful about what I put in my body, and I feel comfortable drinking this each and every day!
It isn't the cheapest shake on the market, that's true. But in my comparison shopping, the few I've found with equally high-quality ingredients are also comparable in price. This replaces a multivitamin for me, so that's a bit of savings right there. Although I still do enjoy my Starbucks, some people like to note that the price of Shakeology is about equivalent to a Starbucks latte daily... so if you're cool with giving up coffee in return for this natural energy boost, that's a trade-off that might make sense.
I'm not telling you all of this because I get a commission when you buy; rather, I sell this product because I believe in it. All the same, I am very grateful for my Shakeology customers' business. As a thank-you, these customers get access to exclusive private groups, resources such as recipes and meal plans, and first notice (and early registration) for my upcoming programs. Shakeology is a great start and a sound investment in your health. When you work with me, you receive the coaching services that help you make the most of this investment through what you do day in and day out in your life: fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, and overall healthy living.
It's absolutely true that you don't need a shake to lose weight. But if you know that there's a product that can make it easier—and can help you feel your best—then why not try it?
