You have probably heard something about Beachbody workouts including the 21 Day Fix and P90X.  The trainers that are associated with Beachbody are legendary, including Shaun T, Autumn Calabrese, Sagi Kalev, Chalene Johnson and Tony Horton to name the most popular ones.  You can get into incredible shape using the workouts created by these trainers.

One of Beachbody’s flagship products is Shakeology.  You might have heard of this product, but you are not sure what it is all about.  Shakeology is a meal replacement shake, but it is NOT a weight loss shake nor is it a protein shake.  There is a lot of misinformation out there, and people get all up in arms when you mention Shakeology.

Here is the explanation:  First of all, and most important, it is NOT a protein shake.  It is so much more than that.  Today’s protein shakes are strictly protein, but Shakeology is so much more.  A Shakeology shake is packed with nutrients; it is a meal replacement, so it is balanced with what your body needs, including minerals, vitamins, proteins, carbs and fats.  Clinical tests have been done on this product.

It is NOT a weight loss product.  Weight loss shakes are everywhere in the market and the companies that make them show skinny models using those products.  The truth is that these shakes are loaded with processed junk and will not help you to lose weight.  If you do experience weight loss, it is only going to be for the short term because you are not learning proper nutrition.  The truth is that weight loss is what occurs when you have the right nutrition – your body is getting all that it needs.  Shakeology is a product designed for everyone, those who want to lose some weight and those who want to bulk up.  Everyone needs good nutrition!

DIETING is a cycle:

  1. You start a diet, and you are excited!
  2. 10 – 14 days into the diet you are experiencing a nutritional deficiency, and this is when huge cravings begin.
  3. You give in to the cravings – we like to call this Temptational Frustration.
  4. Guilt sets in. You feel like you are a failure.
  5. Begin next diet.

Sound familiar?  What does a nutrient deficiency look like?  If you have cravings, mental fog, feel sluggish or are irritable then you are probably experiencing a nutrient deficiency.  The JAMA medical journal recently conducted a study in which they discovered that 100% of nutrient sufficiency was possible when caloric intake averaged 27,000.  What does this mean?  If you ate around 27,000 calories, you have a chance of obtaining 100% of the vitamins and minerals that your body needs to operate optimally – with no cravings, mental fog or irritability.  The truth is that you just cannot obtain all the vitamins and minerals that your body needs without taking a supplement such as Shakeology.

Shakeology gives you the FUEL you need so that you get all the nutrients you need.  This means you will not continue to experience the Diet Cycle depicted above.  You are going to feel better, and you will lose weight due to good nutrition. Shakeology is easy to prepare, it’s vitamin packed (it’s like eating 5 plates of salad), and it is very flexible in calories for your needs (weight loss/weight gain).
