4 Key Benefits of Shakeology
Of course, I have probably mentioned the many benefits of Shakeology in the past, but I thought I would compile a list of the top 4 and highlight them in an article. I have been drinking Shakeology for over a year now and it is one of my favorite supplements. I choose to have mine at breakfast, post workout. I typically will make it with the same basic recipe:
- 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
- 1 scoop Whey Protein Powder
- 8 oz Almond Milk
- 6-8 oz Water
- 1 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
- 8-10 cubes of ice
I have found that this recipe is tough to beat, especially if you like the PB and Chocolate combo. The flavor reminds me of a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup, so it feels like a cheat!
1. Your cravings for unhealthy foods will eventually disappear and be replaced by cravings for healthy choices.
It’s true! While I have never had a lot of trouble keeping my cravings under control, they still get the better of me from time to time, this is one of the benefits of Shakeology that some people may not even realize! The Chocolate flavor of Shakeology is the one that I think has the most effective impact on this, since, as I mentioned above, it really does feel like you are getting something that you shouldn’t be eating. Shakeology has the perfect balance of sweetness and a rich chocolatey taste that most of us would associate with our favorite candy bar.
I am sure there is some scientific reason or specific ingredient that allows this reduction is craving to occur, but I have no idea what that might be and quite honestly am not too interested in know how it works, I just know that it does work! This simple and usually unnoticeable benefit of Shakeology could be the most impactful, since if you have a better control over the actual food you eat and put into your body, you are going to be able to lose the weight you want and KEEP IT OFF more effectively.
2. You can save time!
Replace one meal a day with Shakeology and that’s one less meal to plan. Whip up your shake and go. It’s fast food that’s great for you. As I mentioned before I have my Shakeology in the AM, post-workout and it literally takes me less than 5 minutes to prepare. You can see from the recipe above that I don’t have to really prep anything, just put everything in a large enough cup to hold everything and the blend it up using a stick blender. I prefer the stick blender again, for the clean-up time saver. A stick blender will cost about as much ($20-$30) as a normal blender, but they also travel well, just like Shakeology.
3. You can actually save money!
If you substitute Shakeology for a meal and drink Shakeology instead of eating breakfast, lunch or dinner, you’ll spend just $4 on that meal. That’s cheaper than any double-cappuccino or sub-sandwich run we’ve made!
Here are some testimonials from actual customers and how the benefits of Shakeology has helped them save money.
Brian L., Mesa, AZ – “Shakeology save my family about $500 a month. We no longer buy snacks or junk food – we just make a shake. I didn’t think at first we would be able to afford it, but now we can’t live without it.”
Kassi D., Moshieim, TN – “$120 sounded out of my league since I only work part-time. If I would have known this one simple drink would fix all my health problems, I would have saved myself a lot more money and trips to the doctor.”
Deanna D., WI – “I thought it was expensive, but when I broke down the cost, it’s only $4 per day. That’s cheaper than any meal you could make at home or buy! I told myself I am worth the investment.”
Cruzita S., Porterville, CA – “We travel, which forced us to eat out 8-10 meals a week. Now we take Shakeology, eliminating the fast food. Also, our grocery bill went down because we cur out chips, soda and cookies, plus we have eliminated one meal a day.”
Michael H., Meigs, GA – “Can’t beat the Healthiest Meal of the Day for only $4. Eating at a local sit-down restaurant would cost over $7-$10 a day. I mainly decided to try it so I could save a little money each month.”
4. You can keep the weight off with the help of Shakeology!
Studies show that people who eat breakfast every day are less likely to regain the weight. Further, a protein-rich breakfast helps you feel full and reduces the tendency to snack through out the day. A real benefit of Shakeology is that, when used as a meal replacement for a meal like breakfast, you really give your body a great start to the day and you are full of energy. You will certainly feel more full and satiated when you have Shakeology for breakfast and this will lead to less mindless snacking before your next meal.
BONUS. Save even more money!
An added benefits of Shakeology that you don’t see at the time of purchase is the lower cost or even elimination of cost of medical bills. As the benefits of Shakeology mentioned above will help improve your digestion, boost your energy and keep you lean, you are bound to have fewer medical bills in the future.
Any Negative Benefits of Shakeology?
With any product, there are always PROs and CONs and Shakeology is not excluded from this. While the PROs of Shakeology are numerous, there are a few people that have expressed some a few that I thought it would be appropriate to mention here.
- Upset Stomach – Shakeology has natural detox properties and it’s removing toxins and regulating your bowels and digestive process. Eventually, this will go away and you body’s digestive process will settle down considerably. This occurred for me as well when I first started using Shakeology, but I knew the Benefits of Shakeology were too important to just simply stop using it everyday. You might try starting with 1/2 serving for the first few days to see how your body responds and then move to a full serving.
