So Just What IS Shakeology?

29 Sep

So as promised, this post will focus on Shakeology. Shakeology is a meal replacement powder from BeachBody.

BeachBody claims that in order to meet the equivilant nutrient content in one scoop of Shakeology you have to eat: 

  • 1 bowl of exotic fruit 
  • 4 cups of raw broccoli 
  • 7 large carrots 
  • 10 cups of raw cauliflower 
  • 3 cups of romaine lettuce 
  • 4 cups of raw mushrooms 
  • 3 raw onions
  •  1 cup of peas
  •  4 cups of raw radishes
  •  4 cups of non-fat yogurt
  • 1 shot of wheat grass

All that in ONE scoop??? Sounds too good to be true right? That’s what I thought.  But then I saw the video that they’ve put out that claims that 100 doctors are putting their weight behind Shakeology and claim that Shakeology is a great product nutritionally.

Shakeology combines over 70 all-natural ingredients. Researchers combed the globe looking for the highest quaility ingredients from all over the world including Acai & Goji Berries! Shakeology employs the digestive enzymes and probiotics in the shake to aid in the elimination of waste and toxins in your body. Shakeology is also rich in antioxidants, which are proven to help eliminate free radicals which basically eat away at our DNA which causes us not only to age, but is thought to contribute to your risk of heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimers, and hypertension (fancy for “high blood pressure”).

Shakeology is also considered a low glycemic food, meaning it keeps your blood sugar more even (the higher the Glycemic Index, the more roller coasters your blood sugar levels experience).  In other words, this could be a perfect option for diabetics!

Shakeology was found in an independent study to drop bad cholesterol by 38% & reduce cardiovascular risk factors by 24% in participants.

In the same study, Shakeology was shown to curb participants appetite which more than likely aided in the participant’s weight loss.  Daily (and religious) users of Shakeology swear they see an energy increase when they replace just one meal with Shakeology and exercise right.

But I cannot stress enough, that you can’t just eat Shakeology one meal, but then pig out the other 2 or 4 meals you have in the day.  You still need to smart the rest of your meals and don’t forget to exercise!

Shakeology works for me because it’s all-natural with nothing that was created in a lab! But it might not be for everyone, it is definitely a personal decision.

Healthy Living!
