So thought I'd write about a nutrition product which I truly believe in and drink several times a week as my breakfast.
Beachbody is an amazing company - top notch fitness programs (my FAVES are P90X and ChaLean Extreme) and a passion for "ending the trend of obesity". Earlier this year Beachbody released a powdered nutrient powerhouse - Shakeology! I won't get into the details (but you can read it here) but I just love this stuff. It's basically powdered whole food sources that carry a ton of nutrients from veggies, fruits, grains and seeds and of course some protein thrown in for good measure. Shakeology is advertised as a nutritional/energy shake, not necessarily a meal-replacement or weight-loss shake, but I use it as my breakfast (blended with a mix of different things) and I have no doubt that some of my weight-loss is due to the shake.
I've been drinking it at least 3x/week for the last 5 months and I can't say enough about it! No joke... I can feel a difference on the days that I don't have my Shakeology... the energy level really isn't there. And sure, it might be 'all in my head' but if me just thinking it works makes it work, then why not? Plus do some research and read about what the other THOUSANDS of drinkers have to say. But even more important than the energy increase (and that's an energy increase without any stimulants, I might add!) is knowing that my body is getting the nutrients it needs and that's the most important thing. I'm working really hard to get the body I want and achieve the fitness level I want so I need to make sure I fuel my body correctly.
And Shakeology helps me do this by giving my body the nutrients it doesn't get from my diet. Of course I watch my diet, but even a person who eats clean, clean, CLEAN, can't get all the nutrients they need from the food they eat. How would you like to eat two pounds of broccoli, 10 cups of blueberries, five pounds of spinach, or 8 apples at a sitting? And even those won't cover everything you need!
It took me a while to finally order my first bag of Shakeology because like fitness gadgets, I'm skeptical of what's out there. But I did my research and read up on what makes Shakeology, Shakeology and I do believe it's one of the best supplements out there. And for me it's worked out great! I love it and will continue to use it for as long as I can!
Now I know this sounded like a sales pitch for Shakeology and I assure you I have nothing to do with this company except that I'm a loyal customer. But come to think of it, I do profit from Beachbody and Shakeology. I've profited stronger muscles, lower levels of fat, more energy, and a huge boost of self-confidence! No financial gains are in order for me after writing this, this is just one happy user sharing her thoughts and opinions on Shakeology!
