If you’ve read my ‘Nutrition‘ or ‘Food Labels 101‘ pages, you know I’m VERY discerning when it comes to label reading and what I allow in my family’s foods. (Learn more About Me)

That being said, I’d like to share with you here a bit about Shakeology, the super nourishing meal I have every day. It’s fast and easy to make, and I love getting my daily dose of vital nutrients in a yummy smoothie instead of a bunch of pills!

Tiramisu Smoothie: Vanilla Shakeology
I first used it over 3 years ago as a meal replacement to lose weight. Now that it’s helped me reach my optimal weight, I still enjoy it for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.

Shakeology boosts energy via REAL FOOD nourishment – not caffeine, synthetic vitamins, or artificial colors/flavors/additives, like most ‘energy drinks’ or ‘protein shakes.’

It also keeps me satisfied and reduces cravings for fatty/sugary/salty foods, so it’s easy to stay on-track with my nutrition and maintain my healthy body composition (notice I am NOT focused on the number on the scale! It is ALL about BEING HEALTHY!)

I was hesitant about Shakeology
when first introduced to it, because I was afraid that using a ‘meal replacement shake’ would make me feel like I was depriving myself or I’d be starving in between meals. (I had tried using SlimFast in the past, before I knew any better! …which always left me feeling hungry).  I also worried about chemicals or additives that are said to ‘help you burn fat,’ which I believe are not safe.  

I found that Shakeology doesn’t use any chemicals or fake stuff– it’s not a ‘magic pill’ but instead an all natural meal replacement or snack, designed to help us enjoy all the benefits of optimal nourishment, with the proper balance of protein, fiber, and nutrients.  

I decided to try it, hoping it would help and figuring it couldn’t hurt – I could send it back and get a refund if I didn’t like it or it didn’t work the way I’d hoped (Beachbody offers a 30-day, bottom-of-the-bag money back guarantee!).

{Most people say they feel a difference right away when starting Shakeology…For me, it took a couple of weeks to start feeling the benefits.  (I’ve since learned that the less nutritious a person’s diet is to begin with, the faster they notice the benefits of Shakeology.)  However, one benefit I noticed immediately was that it filled me up and kept me satisfied between meals, which was VITAL for my ability to stick with my meal plan during the challenge. It continues to help me stay on track with healthful eating and ENERGY.}  

My weight loss really was a side effect of the more valuable benefits (in my opinion):

  • easy-to-use nutrition boost
  • increased energy
  • physical endurance
  • mental clarity
  • reduced cravings for sweets & fatty foods
  • reduced PMS symptoms (cramps, migraines, bloating) 



Another way people use Shakeology is with the 3-Day Refresh program – a gentle, nourishing cleanse (eating allowed!) to flush out toxins, get a jumpstart on weight loss, and/or rule out any food intolerances.  I have done the Refresh twice. Learn more about my experience and results HERE.
