Day 8: Sharing Shakeology (Part 1)

When my coach first recommended Shakeology to me, I refused. But she encouraged me to try it, so I did. It turns out, I needed Shakeology more than the workouts she recommended. It changed my eating habits and helped me crave healthier foods. Instead of drinking a Diet Coke and eating M&M’s in the middle of the day, I started treating myself to a shake and my body started responding quickly to my workouts. I was hooked and six years later, I’m still hooked! What I began to realize is that my nutrition is everything, it’s not just 80% of my results, it’s 100%. Why? Because your nutrition impacts your ability to do your workouts, too. If you eat junk, your workout will suffer. If you eat to fuel your body, your workouts are not only more effective, but results will come more quickly and they are more FUN!

One of the coolest things about Shakeology is that it’s NOT a protein shake. Yes, it has protein in it, but truly, it’s a WHOLE FOOD nutrition shake. If you think about it, most of us are not deficient in protein. The general population, even us clean eaters, are NUTRIENT deficient because so many of our foods have been stripped of the very things that are good for us.

This is truly where Shakeology comes into play. It is a versatile nutrition shake that has WHOLE FOOD ingredients compounded together for a purpose, and that purpose is to enable your digestion and insides to thrive so that your outsides follow suit. When your body gets what it needs, energy levels go up, you begin to think and process more clearly and extra weight begins to fall off … all as a side effect of good nutrition.
