Shakeology Scam

Shakeology is available in Strawberry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Vegan Tropical Strawberry, and Vegan Chocolate

Shakeology is available in a variety of flavors.

If you are trying to change your life……lose weight, get fit, eat healthy, feel better, is Shakeology for you? Is it really as good as some say?  Is it the “world’s greatest value in nutrition”?  Does it deserve the term “Superfood?” I did my own research to find out.

I was the biggest skeptic of all protein shakes and other nutritional products, including Shakeology, until two years ago.  At the University of Iowa, I studied Health Promotion and Exercise Science.  I am qualified to design fitness and wellness programs and have worked as an Athletic Trainer for the last fourteen years, caring for the health of high school, collegiate, and recreational athletes.  There are NO MAGIC DIET PILLS!  Many people say fitness and weight loss come from moving more and eating less.  I say “MOVE MORE and EAT SMART.” Shakeology is smart.  Not all calories and protein shakes are created equal.


You must fuel your body properly in order to perform.


People underestimate the importance of quality nutrition.  In sports medicine we find that there is a direct correlation to athletic performance and good nutrition.  Athletes that take care of their bodies, not only physically, but nutritionally, have an edge on their competition. Many collegiate programs have nutritionists on staff who work closely with the athletes and coaching staff to assure the student-athletes are getting the best, most appropriate quality nutrition for their bodies and physical demands of their sports.  Our bodies are not all that different from one another, we need and crave good nutrition.  Your body will function better with a healthy diet.  My husband and I even see the difference in the players on my son’s 5th grade basketball team.  The ones with better nutrition seem to have more endurance.

There is a good reason why Shakeology is the “Healthiest Meal of the Day.” No other single meal can give you the balance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, prebiotics, probiotics, protein, fiber, and amino acids that are essential to the maintenance of your mind and body.

When I started drinking Shakeology I was amazed at how much better I felt.  Shakeology has had a positive impact on my family and myself personally.  Nine months after my third son was born, my husband Aaron and I decided to start our Insanity exercise program.  A couple weeks into the program, we replaced one meal a day with Shakeology.  I was amazed at the results.  I had more energy, felt better, and became regular for the first time in my life.  I also found that Shakeology curbed my cravings for sweets.  I lost thirteen pounds and have kept it off the last two years by drinking Shakeology  and exercising.  Aaron also has had great health benefits.  His borderline high blood pressure now is low and he has lost 20 pounds and kept it off.  We feel great and are able to keep up with our three active boys.  We haven’t been this full of energy and fit since high school.  Shakeology is an intergral part of this.



Pre-Shakeology Aaron also had trouble with minor hypoglycemia, with symptoms such as shaking and feeling faint when his blood sugar got low.  These issues were generally in the mornings, and by drinking Shakeology for breakfast he has evened out his blood sugar levels and avoided these lows and spikes.  Being gluten intolerant (wheat, barley, and rye allergy) is also another issue Aaron has and Shakeology is a great gluten free option to add to his restricted diet.

When you decide to eat healthy, ingredient lists become important and Shakeology is no different. Although lots of shakes on the market may contain natural ingredients that are beneficial and increase your metabolism, they do not come close to the balanced nutrition that you find in one Shakeology, and alarmingly some of these products increase blood pressure and heart rate causing tachycardia (higher than normal heart rate) and heart palpitations in some cases.  Quite the opposite of what we are trying to accomplish in our health and fitness goals.

I challenge anyone to commit to Shakeology for two months, then go back to your old eating pattern for three days and see how you feel. When drinking Shakeology, you will feel better and crave healthy food instead of junk.  This will help you reach your weight loss and fitness goals.   You will be shocked at how much better you feel when you are getting the good quality nutrition your body needs to function.
