Secret To Real Long Term Weight Loss & Health!
Ok… ok… It’s not really a secret… If you really want to lose weight or improve your health, you need to watch what you’re eating. You need to change from eating very little fruits and vegetables to eating more and also eating less of the junk food.
Let’s be real though… Eating more fruits and vegetables is HARD WORK…. Especially hard if you don’t like vegetables to begin with. So, what can you do?
Imagine this, a health shake that includes only superfoods from all around the world. Superfoods from places like Asia, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Madagascar, Mexico, Brazil, the Peruvian Andes, and the list goes on and on… These superfoods are grown in nutrient rich soils so that every superfood is dense with nutrition to help improve your health… And get this, it’s mixed together to taste like a milkshake!
Shakeology is the healthy milkshake people have always wanted… A health shake that will help you feel healthier from the inside without chemically produced ingredients, without dangers chemicals that may damage your body, and without tasting like a nasty health shake.
Before we get into the Shakeology benefits, here’s a quick run down of the Shakeology ingredients and what they do:
- Protein & Amino Acids – Help the body build lean muscle, heal wounds, improve skin and hair. Support optimal brain function, mental clarity, improved mood, and reduced cravings.
- Antioxidants & Super-fruits – Help reduce oxidative damage in the body caused by free radicals. Oxidative damage is a major cause for degenerative (aging) conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure (which can lead to stroke), dementia, and arthritis.
- Phytonutrients & Super-greens – Boost immunity, help fight diseases, can slow down the aging process, detoxify the body, and have alkalizing properties. Plus, helps to alkalize the body and promotes detoxification of the liver, kidneys, and blood to restore health and vitality.
- Adaptogens Herbs – Plant derived agents help to adapt the body or protect it from stress. Adaptogenic herbs are unique from other substances in their ability to balance endocrine hormones and the immune system.
- Prebiotics & Probiotics – It enhances the production of the essential bacteria that improves the digestion process. Also it helps for the optimal absorption of the nutrients.
- Digestive Enzymes – Help the body break down foods and increase absorption of nutrients.
So, what’s the secret to weight loss and health?… Getting the right nutrients in your body!
How Does Shakeology Taste (Review)?
It wouldn’t be a complete Shakeology review without giving a Shakeology taste review… Shakeology can be the most healthiest drink on earth, however, can you drink it? Remember, Shakeology comes with 70+ super food ingredients, so it takes some real talent to get everything tasting good together.
So, Does Shakeology Taste Good or Bad?
- Chocolate Shakeology Taste Review – Chocolate Shakeology is truly the smoothest tasting and thickest Shakeology flavor. It has a nice Chocolate taste on it’s own and you would never be able to guess that it’s good for you. Chocolate is the #1 selling Shakeology flavor and it’s probably because many people have a Chocolate sweet tooth.
- Chocolate Vegan Shakeology Taste Review – Chocolate Vegan is my personal favorite. It has a lighter Chocolate taste than regular Chocolate Shakeology and has been made smoother in the last year. I think people are turned off by it being Vegan. However, this Shakeology flavor tastes amazingly good with only water, almond milk, or anything else you would like to use!
- Café Latte – If you’re a coffee lover, you’re going to love this flavor! Café Latte includes all the super food ingredients like the other Shakeology flavors and also WHOLE coffee fruit, giving you even more health benefits! Café Latte is a smooth shake that tastes like a Starbucks’ Mocha Frappuccino. However, this is not a bold coffee taste and contains about the same amount of caffeine as all the other Shakeology flavors. This is a great addition to the Shakeology line up!
- Greenberry Shakeology Taste Review – Greenberry has a smooth texture and tastes very sweet. It tastes almost like a sweetened, smooth, and thick Green Tea. If you’re not used to health shakes, Greenberry may not be the flavor you want to start with. One thing for sure, you cannot tastes any berries in this shake.
- Strawberry Shakeology Taste Review – Strawberry Shakeology is a smooth shake like the other regular Shakeology flavors. Unlike Tropical Strawberry, you can really taste the Strawberry in this shake. However, the Strawberry Shakeology flavor offers a bit of bitter taste. If you want this Shakeology flavor, make sure to make use of Strawberry Shakeology recipes.
- Vanilla Shakeology Taste Review – Finally a smooth and light tasting shake. And best of all, truly all natural without using FDA loop holes. Vanilla is perfect to customize with different fruits and vegetables allowing you to change up the flavor of your health shake. As soon as you open your Vanilla Shakeology bag, you’ll smell the sweet aroma of Vanilla! Highly recommended if you’re not a Chocolate fan!
- Tropical Strawberry (Vegan) Shakeology Taste Review – Many Shakeology reviews won’t say this about Tropical Strawberry but it’s true… it’s a gritty flavor. Beachbody calls it smooth but it’s not as smooth as the other Shakeology flavors. The taste is very light so you can customize it with fruit, which is a plus. Many Shakeology users recommend using frozen bananas or other fruit to smooth it out.
Which is the best Shakeology flavor?… Here is the order of my Personal favorite Shakeology flavors based on taste, texture, and ability to add different ingredients:
- Chocolate Vegan Shakeology
- Chocolate Shakeology
- Café Latte
- Vanilla Shakeology
- Strawberry Shakeology
- Greenberry Shakeology
- Tropical Strawberry Vegan Shakeology

Benefits of Shakeology: Doctors & Clinical Studies
Shakeology Doctor Reviews
When Shakeology first came out, Beachbody contacted Doctors in order to get Shakeology reviews. These Doctors were simply asked to check out Shakeology and to share their honest opinion about what Shakeology has to offer. How many Doctors were contacted to share what they thought?…
I couldn’t say. However, Beachbody did come out with a 100 Doctors Don’t Lie: Shakeology Reviews… Check out the video below…
Many of the Doctors shared again and again that they were amazed by the ingredients in Shakeology. And here’s what’s even more crazy about these reviews… This video was recorded in 2010 when there was only 2 Shakeology flavors, Chocolate and Greenberry. And this was before Darin Olien upgraded the Shakeology formula with more potent and powerful superfoods. Needless to say, Shakeology was positively being reviewed from the beginning…
Here are the new Shakeology flavors to date:
- Chocolate (2009)
- Greenberry (2009)
- Vegan Tropical Strawberry (2010)
- Chocolate Vegan (2010)
- Vanilla (2013)
- Strawberry (2014)
- Café Latte (January 2016)
Shakeology Clinical Studies Show It’ll Improve Your Health!
While we’ll go over several Beach body Customer Shakeology reviews later, many people still want empirical evidence that answers the question: “Does Shakeology work?“… Well, in 2014, Beachbody had Shakeology go through Clinical Trials in order to discover what the real benefits of Shakeology are….
Shakeology Clinical Study Details: The research was conducted by Medicus Research, led by Medical Director and CEO, Dr. Jay Udani, MD. A total of 50 subjects drank Shakeology as their breakfast and lunch each day for 12 weeks. Nothing else was changed. They were NOT placed on a diet and they were NOT asked to exercise during the 12 week period. Researchers conducted extensive before and after medical testing at baseline, 4, 8 and 12 week intervals, along with detailed patient interviews, which validated the comprehensive health improvements experienced by the participants in 12 weeks.
The best thing about the Shakeology Study was that NO ONE went on a diet… Often weight loss products will state in small print that people got their results by also including exercise AND changing their diet… NOT HERE THOUGH… In this study, the participants simply drank Shakeology for breakfast and lunch….
SO, DOES SHAKEOLOGY WORK?… HERE ARE THE SHAKEOLOGY RESULTS…
CRAZY CONTINUED WEIGHT LOSS – The majority of the participants had a significant reduction in the desire to eat lunch. Over the course of 90 days, the participants lost an average of 9.3 pounds… With the highest weight loss coming in at 24 pounds! – Remember, these people DID NOT exercise.
Additionally, the participants continued to lose weight throughout the study! This means they didn’t lose all the weight in one month. Instead, they kept losing weight, never hitting a weight loss plateau!
CHOLESTEROL PLUMMETED – Many people who are overweight or obese often have cholesterol problems as well. Well, guess what… Shakeology helped the participants lower their total cholesterol an average of 7%, with a maximum reduction of 50%!
LOWERED BLOOD SUGAR – Along with high cholesterol, high blood sugar is also a by product of being overweight. This is important to consider because high blood sugar puts you at risk of diabetes. The participants were able to reduce their blood sugar (HbA1c) by an average of 5% while some reduced their number by up to 19%!
Overall, these are some crazy Shakeology results considering that nothing else was changed in their lifestyle, outside of drinking Shakeology! To get more details on the Shakeology Clinical Study, check out the video below…
Shakeology Reviews Weight Loss
How Does Shakeology Work?
As we saw from the Shakeology Clinical Studies, people have been able to lose weight with Shakeology from simply drinking Shakeology every single day. However, how does Shakeology work? How is Shakeology able to help you to lose weight?
In a interview conducted with Darin Olien, the Shakeology ingredient hunter, in How is Shakeology Different? Darin stated that it’s all about nutrition because that’s all your body is really craving. Yes, your mind may be addicted to chips, cookies, junk food, and fast food… Yet, this does not mean that these foods are NUTRITIONALLY SATISFYING…
And that is when weight gain happens, when we keep eating High in Calorie, Un-nutritional foods until we finally feel full. For example, many of us will feel satisfied with 2 or 3 bananas. Yet, when left unchecked, many of us can eat a few bags of chips and never feel satisfied. Instead, we may move onto eating something else until our belly feels full and ready to explode from junk food!
So, how does Shakeology work?… It works by giving you the nutrition that your body craves. Shakeology contains 7 Nutrient Groups that you will never find together in one meal. As a result, YOU WILL FEEL FULL AND NUTRITIONALLY SATISFIED. These Shakeology nutrient groups include:
- Essential Amino Acids and Protein
- Prebiotics and Probiotics
- Digestive Enzymes
- Vitamins and Minerals
It’s also important to know what’s NOT in Shakeology… Shakeology will help you lose weight…

Real Unbiased Shakeology Reviews
What kind of real unbiased reviews are these? Well, Shakeology reviews unbiased, are reviews with no affiliation to Beachbody. For example, many people would call me bias because I’m a Beachbody Coach. It doesn’t matter how much I love Shakeology and believe in it, people will still call me bias. Even if I took the time to try other popular health shakes on the market, which I have…
Some people would also argue that the Shakeology Customer reviews are also bias because they were verified by Beachbody before they were published. Whatever your stance may be, I did search high and low online to find some Unbiased – Real Shakeology reviews! Check them out for yourself below:
Unbiased Shakeology Review: Refused To Buy Shakeology
Qi Heart first refused to buy Shakeology because it was too expensive and just though it was just another whey protein shake. She actually said, “No freaking way…” However, after her mom told her that she was interested in Shakeology, Qi Heart decided to try it out for herself. Check out her Shakeology video review below:
Qi Heart Shakeology review highlights:
- Qi Heart stated: “It [Shakeology] has everything you’ve ever heard of that’s good for your body.”
- Understands why Shakeology is expensive because it has expensive, healthy ingredients.
- Not only does she state that, “This stuff is freaking amazing” but she shares that she has plenty of energy to do chores, take care of her two young children, and is still looking for more work to do.
- She feels great and has plenty of energy left over!
- Shakeology offers sustainable energy! It’s NOT like coffee nor energy drinks that come with High Energy and then Nothing.
- Says it’s delicious and looks forward to drinking it (she tried Chocolate Vegan Shakeology).
Note: Qi Heart stated that you can get Shakeology at a cheaper price at Amazon. However, this is no longer true since she posted her Shakeology review. Shakeology is NOT SOLD on Amazon anymore. Check out Shakeology on Amazon Here… And the link she placed below her video for Shakeology on Amazon is no longer active… You can, however, Order Shakeology From This Website…
Shakeology Review: Close To Death
ABC News reported on a father of three who two years ago was an overweight, over-medicated insomniac watching infomercials in the middle of the night who is now 118 pounds lighter. Casey Walker, 42, weighed 275 pounds and was in and out of the hospital due to an undiagnosed autoimmune condition in September 2013 when he “reached the end of his rope” and turned to Beachbody for help.
Casey stated: “One morning I was sitting in my chair on a ton of medications and was watching Beachbody infomercials because I couldn’t sleep,” Walker said. “I felt like God said, ‘It’s time for you to get up and get moving.’” At this time, Casey was no longer working because of his poor health. He had to talk to his wife in order to get the Focus T25 Challenge Pack. Although their budget was tight, Casey was convinced that he could lose the weight.
Exercising 25 minutes a day with Focus T25 and drinking Shakeology everyday was Casey last hope to get control of his health. Everyday he worked out with Focus T25 and modified every move because he had limited mobility. However, he kept going and in the first 3 months he lost 70 pounds! Casey stated: “I started fueling my body with something that my body had been craving”.
Between September 2013 to May 2015, Casey lost 118 pounds!… That is simply amazing… There’s nothing like feeding your body what it needs to gain back your health!

Real Shakeology Reviews: Compared to Over 50 Meal Replacement Shakes!
Meal Replacement Shakes Reviews.com is out to find the best meal replacement shakes on the market! MealReplacementShakeReviews.com has already reviewed over 50 different popular meal replacement shakes for weight loss. Including the following popular shakes (with their overall rating given):
Here’s what MealReplacementShakeReviews.com has to say about their meal replacement shakes reviews:
Each review will give you the facts about it. Whether or not we liked it and the specifics of why or why not. If the shake is part of a full program, we will talk about the program as well because usually they build those to make their shake most effective. We’ll talk about cost analysis, nutrition analysis, how effective the hunger-blockers are and (most important for some of us) how it tastes.
Here’s their official Shakeology review, Shakeology came in #2 out of over 50 Meal Replacement Shakes!…
Now, the reason we know MealReplacementShakeReviews.com is offering a unbiased Shakeology review is because when you click on their Buy button, you’re taken to Amazon.com And as we mentioned earlier, Shakeology is no longer being sold on Amazon like it used to be. However, it is still an unbiased review because every meal replacement shake links to Amazon.com. Meaning they’re not a Beachbody Coach and simply make some money from their site by using the Amazon affiliate program.
Even so, MealReplacementShakeReviews.com compared many shakes that people often compare Shakeology too. For example, VegaOne is often thought to be similar to Shakeology. Yet, VegOne only got a overall rating of 7.6. Shakeology is also often compared to Herbalife (8.1), Monavie (8.0), and Isagenix (8.3). Again, all of them falling short of Shakeology’s overall rating of 8.9.
Here are two important notes to consider about Meal Replacement Shake Reviews.com review of Shakeology:
- Value: The cost is higher than your average meal replacement shake… If you ONLY want a meal replacement shake, then I would not recommend Shakeology.
- Shakeology offers more protein than most meal replacement shakes and several different suprefoods that have helped people lower their blood sugar and lower their cholesterol without changing their diet nor including exercise into their life (see Shakeology Clinical Study above for details).
- If you’re only looking for a meal replacement shake, click here to compare poplar shakes…
- Taste: Meal Replacement Shake Reviews.com tried Greenberry and Chocolate Shakeology. Of the two, they preferred Chocolate Shakeology. Personally, Greenberry isn’t the tastiest Shakeology flavor. However, Chocolate is the best tasting one and most popular. Along with Vanilla and Strawberry. Also remember, Shakeology has over 70 different ingredients and they don’t use anything artificial to enhance the flavor. Knowing that, Beachbody has done an amazing job in creating a tasty and healthy shake.
- Want to know how each Shakeology flavor tastes like? Go here: How does Shakeology taste (Review)?
- Protein Powder for Weight Loss: Although Shakeology is considered more as a weight loss meal replacement shake, it’s also high in whey protein. For those looking for a protein powder for weight loss, you’ve found it here with Shakeology. Shakeology often has as much protein as regular protein shakes and includes health improving ingredients! Keep reading to learn more about the Shakeology ingredients…
Vegan Flavor Shakeology Reviews
Beachbody makes use of the best whey protein possible in their regular Shakeology flavors… However, Shakeology does have two non-whey protein flavors, which are Vegan, Vegan Chocolate and Tropical Strawberry…
Our nest reviewer, Alissa Fleming, is not a Team Beachbody Coach. Instead, she enjoys writing about living a dairy free lifestyle on her blog at GoDairyFree.org. Why did Alissa decide to do a Shakeology review (unbiased)? She states: “I receive quite a few requests for dairy-free meal replacement drinks, and this new version of Tropical Strawberry Shakeology definitely tops my list of recommendations.”
Alissa wrote her Shakeology review back in August 3, 2012… so check out the notes after her review to get a few updates…. Here’s Alissa Fleming’s Shakeology review from Go Dairy Free:
The Pros: Dairy-Free Nutrition, Diet-Friendly, Low Sugar
- It is fairly low calorie (160 per serving), but packs in so many nutrients including: 15 grams of protein from raw sprouted brown rice, 9 essential amino acids, prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and loads of “superfood” ingredients for antioxidants.
- The vegan shakeology suits a variety of special diets.
- It is fairly low in sugar. It’s almost dessert-like and when blended, not bad compared to other options on the market.
The Cons: Rice Protein Texture, Cost, Too Sweet?
- Since it uses a brown rice protein base, it has that “powdery” texture. If you’ve had brown rice protein, then you know what I’m talking about. Some people love it. I’m not a big fan, but when blended into a smoothie, the texture mellows quite a bit.
- This isn’t a cheap meal replacement! I can say it is out of my budget for regular purchase, but if it fits your needs, it may be worth the price tag.
- They pack a lot of info onto that packet, but fail to note if it does supply any of your days essential vitamins and minerals.
Alissa ended her review of Shakeology by stating:
“Though I would give the Strawberry Shakeology 4 stars, just knocking one star off for the cons noted above, I have since trialed the Chocolate Vegan Shakeology, which just nudges this review up to 5 stars.”
Notes: Overall, Alissa recommends Shakeology… It’s of great quality and tastes great. She mentions in her Shakeology review Cons that the texture may be powdery. Beachbody has been working on the Shakeology formula since this review was written in 2012, to be smoother and to have new and more updated ingredients. Personally, Tropical Strawberry is not my favorite but it’s still nice and smooth if you throw in a banana.
Additionally, Alissa mentions that the Shakeology Nutrition Label is missing essential vitamins and minerals. This is because the Vegan Shakeology flavors are not fortified with vitamins and minerals like the non-Vegan flavors. As a result, all the nutrition in the Vegan Flavors are directly from the ingredients. Which means the amount of vitamins and minerals in each bag can vary a bit because not all fruits and vegetables will consistently have the same amount of nutrition. Thus, Beachbody cannot label the amount of Vitamins and Minerals in each bag. Learn more here: What is in Shakeology?
Beachbody Shakeology Reviews: Discovery News
Our final unbiased Shakeology review comes from Discovery News. Discovery News is unaffiliated with Beachbody and simply took the time to better understand what Shakeology has to offer. Discovery News did an interview with Darin Olien, the Shakeology Ingredient Hunter. Here’s what Discovery News reported…
“As the developer of Shakeology, the “healthiest meal of the day” shake from fitness behemoth BeachBody (the people who brought you P90X), Olien wanted only the absolute healthiest, most nutritional ingredients for the product. Ingredients that have very powerful antioxidant and adaptogen abilities like acai berry, Camu-Camu, maca root, and Sacha Inchi.”
During his travels around the world in isolated villages, he meets with local medicine men and shamans to discover what foods they’ve been using to heal and promote health for centuries. Foods that western civilization has never been exposed to but could hold the key to untold health and wellness.
“This is not us coming up with some magic effect from these foods,” he says. “It’s observing what these ingredients provide, and being humble to what these people have been using successfully for millennia. That’s the power.” – Darin Olien
Here’s what Discovery News reported about Shakeology:
“Some of the 70 or so ingredients he has included in Shakeology have caused “incredible and profound” results according to Olien.
He’s seen people who were overweight with dangerously high cholesterol drop significant weight and 80 or more points on their cholesterol levels once they drink his shakes. Enough that they can get off their prescription medications.”

Shakeology Review: Why is Shakeology “Expensive”?
Finally, we come to a question in this Beach body Shakeology review that many people often ask. People normally feel like Shakeology is expensive at first because they’re comparing Shakeology to a limited meal replacement shake or other protein shakes to lose weight. Often thinking that Shakeology is created to simply be a “meal replacement”. And if you’re looking for a meal replacement shake, then yes, there are several cheaper alternatives.
However… if you’re looking for the best meal replacement shake for weight loss AND health… There’s nothing that you can really compare it to. If you look at an earlier Beachbody Shakeology review above, Meal Replacement Shakes Reviews.com found Shakeology to out rank over 50 other meal replacement shakes on the market. So already, you know you’re getting a superior “meal replacement shake”.
Yet, there’s more to Shakeology than simply keeping you full. Shakeology is a total health shake that does not compromise on quality!… In 10 Facts You Didn’t Know About Shakeology, we covered the following:
- Vanilla Shakeology took over 3 years of research and development because Beachbody wasn’t able to make a real NATURAL Vanilla Shakeology without using FDA loopholes that other “Natural” health shake makers use. For example, using bacterial fermentation of corn or rice bran is considered a “natural” vanilla flavor or using Castoreum (derived from the anal glad of beavers) can also be used as a natural vanilla flavoring. It wasn’t until Darin Olien found a potent, Vanilla Bean source in Madagascar that Beachbody was able to make Vanilla Shakeology…
- Beachbody upholds strict quality control by sending their own team of experts to test every distribution center around the world. Remember, there are over 70 different ingredients! Not only are the ingredients tested for quality and potency when they are gathered, but also when they are shipped out, at the manufacturing plant, and also the finished product is tested again!
Besides being strict on quality, the Shakeology ingredients come from several places around the world, allowing the ingredients to grow naturally in nutrient rich soils without the use of harmful chemicals nor gmo crops… Here’s a short list of where the Shakeology ingredients come from…
- Asia – Cordyceps, Hydrilla, Schisandra
- Bolivia – Quinoa Seed
- China – Astragalus root, Gingko, Schisandra, Barley Grass, Reishi, Goji Berries
- Costa Rica – Papain
- Madagascar – Vanilla Beans
- Mexico – Chia Seed, Moringa
- Northeastern Brazil – Acerola
- Peru – Yacon Root, Sacha inchi, Maca root

So then, “Why is Shakeology so expensive?”…. Simply put, Shakeology is a premium health shake. Shakeology is like the Nike of the running shoe and the majority of other meal replacement shakes are a Walmart running shoe. If you had to run a marathon, would you use a high quality, top of the line running shoe or the cheapest running shoe you can find? In the same way, would you rather ingest a high quality, potent, super-food shake or a semi-decent quality, artificial, gmo filled meal replacement shake?
Depending on your health and weight loss goals, you’ll need to determine what is the best course of action for you. As you can see from the several Shakeology reviews above, people have transformed their health with Shakeology. Will you be next?
Order Beachbody Shakeology Shake Only
As you have seen from the Shakeology Clinical study and from several Shakeology reviews, Shakeology does help with weight loss AND also helps you with your overall health. While you will get faster weight loss results by combining Shakeology with a Nutrition Plan and a Workout Routine, you don’t need to… As discovered from the Clinical Trials.

While writing up this Shakeology review, we looked high and low to find any Shakeology promo codes or Shakeology discount codes but we found none because Beachbody never discounts Shakeology to the public.
Not sure which Shakeology flavor is the one you’ll love? Over here you can read a Shakeology Flavor review to get a good idea of how Shakeology tastes. However, with a Shakeology price of $129.95, some people would love to try a Shakeology sample first and now here’s your chance!
Check out the following samples:
- Shakeology 7 Day Sampler! – Sample ALL 7 Flavors
- Shakeology Vegan Sampler – Sample Chocolate Vegan & Tropical Strawberry
Money Saving Option for Sampling Shakeology – The Shakeology Super Sampler Costs $34.95 before shipping and taxes for only 7 Shakeology samples. After shipping and taxes, it’ll cost you about $45.26. Another option would be to order the “Shakeology Chocolate + Vanilla + Strawberry Combo Packets”. You’ll get a total of 24 packets. You won’t get the other 4 Shakeology Flavors (Chocolate Vegan, Greenberry, Tropical Strawberry, Cafe Latte). However, most people normally enjoy Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry the most. Or, you can check out the other Combo Packet Boxes that you may enjoy more!… When placing your order, make sure to order with monthly auto-ship to save even more money! Order Shakeology Here!
Outside of the options above, there’s no other way to order a Shakeology sample.

I am a registered dietitian. I have tried other products, but this one is hands down the best! The shake is delicious (i blend it with ice and the consistency is so thick and satisfying). The vitamins and minerals that are packed in just 140 calories is amazing. I do find that the shake fills me up and has helped curbed my cravings. I am a distance runner, but even with my running i have gained about 5-7 pounds over the last several years as i am hitting that 40 year old mark. The shakes helped me to drop 4 pounds in first few weeks. I just ordered my second order. I would highly recommend them to anybody that wants the most nutrition for the fewest calories!!! When my weight got up to 230 lbs... my doctors told me I'd be dead by the time I was 35 if I didn't make changes in my diet and start exercising! I turned to Beachbody for help and the results I achieved from P90X, INSANITY, P90X2, the Ultimate Reset, and Shakeology have far exceeded anything I imagined, and are honestly nothing short of a miracle! I was experiencing horrible acid reflux and was about to go on prescription medication. Then I started drinking Shakeology (nothing else in my diet changed), my digestion improved and I haven't had acid reflux since. It's been life changing! Shakeology plus 21 day fix changed my whole relationship with food and fitness 🌿❤️ 55lbs down officially and went from a size 16-size 4! I have been maintaining it off. And now I am sharing this amazing opportunity with the world! I used to suffer with acid reflux but soon as I started using Shakeology it went away so did my inflammation I love it I wouldn't trade it for anything else plus I lost like 35 pounds and a lot of inches! I take Shakeology because it is very tasty and that I needed a good meal replacement. I like it so much that I double scoop all my shakes and also add Shakeology to kefir or cottage cheese. It's helped my energy and also my "sluggish" digestive system. I have lost weight and experienced fewer mood swings, less bloating, and increased workout stamina with no other changes to my routine. Shakeology is one of the only things I've ever been able to drink first thing in the morning. I have discovered that with milk and put in a blender it gets a really light, fluffy texture that I find MUCH easier to swallow. I highly recommend this prep method as without the blender the texture is totally different. This is by far the best meal replacement I've ever tried. The results have been fantastic. I'm close to finishing my first bag and just ordered another. Totally worth it! I can't think of a time I felt this good and this is the ONLY thing I have changed in the last month. At nearly 200 lbs., I was not healthy. But food was always my 'comfort,' so the more depressed I got, the more I ate. When my dad died from cancer, I ate and ate until I couldn't eat anymore. But I hit rock bottom when I developed a 'softball' in my neck. At first, they thought I'd had a heart attack. It was only an infection that required surgery. But the scare of a heart attack sent me to P90X, and then ASYLUM. In all, I lost 76 lbs. And I thank Shakeology—it supported my transformation, helped me lose weight, AND it saved my life. When I was in the hospital, my mom brought me Shakeology every day, and I truly believe it gave my body everything it needed to heal itself and thrive. I've lost 47 lbs in 6.5 months while drinking Shakeology and working out with 21 Day Fix EXTREME! Combining exercise and Shakeology has drastically improved my life. I feel so much more confident, happy and accomplished. It's impossible for that not to shine through! I tried Shakeology originally and liked it, but discontinued my membership because I thought it was pretty expensive. However, I found that once I bought protein powder and several supplements to concoct my own blend, it was MORE expensive and didn't taste as good! Shakeology has so many great things in it, it really is worth the money. I just had a baby, and I especially appreciate the convenience now! I love the chocolate, and actually prefer the Vegan to the original. Remember, you can't just go to work and get paid just for showing up, you have to do the work to get paid! Having a fitness activity, and most important eating right, not just less is very important. Your body needs the right fuels/foods. Shakeology is a great aid, that has helped many of us get our results and keep them for good. Shakeology does the body good. It is like a super vitamin that your body will love when you start moving and doing with your body things it's not used to doing at all.
