Everyone wants to eat healthier, and if it were as easy as that it’s what we’d all do. The best way to get on the road to eating healthier is to do it one step at a time. And a meal replacement shake may be a good option for you.
I’ve been a wellness professional for over a decade and every now and then someone asks me about meal replacement shakes. My first question is, “how’s your diet?” If they’re skipping meals, eating on the go or eating food with no nutritional value then a protein shake is a good place to start.
There are a ton of meal replacement shakes on the market and the choices are expanding every day. My recommendation? Read the ingredients label. That’s it. If you can read the label and not wonder what the heck something is, then chances are it’s a pretty good choice.
I’ve done my fair share of research and recommend Shakeology mostly because I drink it myself. If you read the label, there isn’t one ingredient in it that isn’t natural or healthy. It’s a symphony of good nutrition with super foods, vitamins, minerals and high quality protein. There’s more than 70 whole food ingredients in each serving.
When you do your homework, you’re probably going to find that most of the shakes on the market have little to offer in the way of nutrients and are overly processed. This means you’re going to feel hungry right after you drink it because it’s filled with empty calories. Kind of like junk food. When your body doesn’t get the nutrients it needs, it signals hunger. That’s why there’s an obesity problem in this country. People keep eating food (or non-food as the case may be) with no nutritional value, and their body tells them to eat more because it hasn’t gotten the fuel it needs. We keep eating and gaining weight. The cycle repeats over and over again.
Shakeology is a nutrient dense food containing more than 70 whole food ingredients with as little processing as possible to maintain a 100% bio availability to your body. What this means is the calories in Shakeology contain the nutrients your body is looking for so most people feel satisfied for 3 – 4 hours with just one shake.
The majority of shakes on the market use highly processed corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) for their sweeteners, or even artificial sweeteners because it keeps the cost down. Shakeology uses coconut flower nectar and stevia sweeteners. Both have a low glycemic affect, making Shakeology diabetic and blood sugar friendly.
The way I see it, the choice is an easy one – drink a meal replacement shake with over 70 whole foods or a synthetic, chemically manufactured concoction.
I consider Shakeology my secret weapon. I use it when I don’t have time to prepare a healthy meal or in the late afternoon during the midday slump. Don’t take my word for it – try it yourself. If you contact me, I’d be happy to send you a sample at no charge. Or better yet, buy a 10 day supply and really put it to the test. You really have nothing to lose but unwanted pounds and junk food cravings.
Oh, and I forgot to tell you the best part: There’s a 30 day money back guarantee, so if you don’t like it just send it back for a full refund. Check out the links below for a complete list of ingredients and more information to help you decide if Shakeology is right for you.
