So what are some of the benefits of drinking Shakeology every day?  

It can help you:

  • Lose weight
  • Reduce junk food cravings
  • Provide healthy energy
  • Support your digestion and regularity

Let’s face it, the American diet is terrible!

Rarely do any of us eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables; instead, we reach for what’s quick and easy—packaged food and fast food—which have been so overprocessed that their nutrients have long been destroyed. The reality is, we’re running our bodies on empty. And like a car, we need fuel to go. Good fuel. Not empty-calorie junk. When you start thinking of food as fuel, you immediately realize how important Shakeology is in your daily diet. Because Shakeology is packed with the world’s most potent, nutritious, and delicious ingredients, it’s the quickest and easiest way to eat healthy, stay satisfied, and live a healthy life.

Do I drink Shakeology?

I have to be honest with you..

Don’t tell anyone, but I wasn’t completely on board with it when I was first introduced to Shakeology. I was a skeptic, BIG TIME. 

A meal replacement drink? Uhm, no thanks!! I’m not a “shake person”, I eat real food!

But I thought about it for awhile (a long while). I did my research – because what kind of engineer would I be if I didn’t do my due diligence and look into it and then look into it again? I ultimately talked myself into trying it out for a month, ONE month. It was a ‘shit or get off the pot’ kind of moment.

Right now you may be thinking, 

Wait a minute, if you weren’t sure about it, why the heck did you even bother trying it?

I had heard so many good things about it, but by trying it for myself, then I would know for sure. I would either be able to confirm that it was a crock and wasn’t for me or I would be shocked that I was experiencing any of the ‘supposed’ noticeable changes in either weight loss, energy levels, digestion or food cravings.  

So what happened?

Two weeks in and I did a complete 180! My #1 reason?? Of all things, digestion! This may be TMI, and I’ll save the details for a blog post, but I had no idea just how irregular I was for most of my life until things uhm.. starting moving. Hello prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes! I’m not sure how to express to you how good this has made me feel, but I should regularly (see what I did there?) be wearing a shirt that says, “Ask me about my digestion!” Ok, I wouldn’t actually wear that (probably?), but what about one that says, “I’m just a regular girl.”? Haha, yes, that would do the trick!

Did I lose weight?

Yes, 8lbs and 8″ off my body in the first month! Can I pinpoint that specifically to drinking Shakeology? Not really. I was also doing a new workout program as using the portion control meal plan that comes with the 21 Day Fix. I’m sure a combination of all three of these things contributed, but I cannot with certainty say, “Shakeology made me lose weight.”

Did I notice an increased level of energy?

Not really. Nothing noticeable anyway. But everyone is different and I know a lot of people who HAVE noticed an boost in their energy level!

Did my junk food cravings go away?

I wish! I still want an after-dinner dessert – a piece of chocolate, a cookie, something sweet. But I’ve learned how to make better choices and try to stick to dark chocolate, homemade fruit ice cream, or Chocolate Shakeology. 

Will it work for you?

Everyone will have a different experience and their bodies will more than likely react differently. You can talk to a hundred people and get a hundred different opinions. I think the only way to know for sure is to try for yourself and form your own opinion based on YOUR experience! And with a 30-day “bottom of the bag” money back guarantee, what do you have to lose by giving it a try?


Take the first step toward improving your health by trying Shakeology for the next 30 days. If you don’t feel healthier, more energized, and simply amazing, you won’t pay.
