Is a Nutrition Shake the Answer?

Greetings Pink Lemonade Friends. How many companies promise to solve all of your health, nutrition and weight loss issues in a shake? I have always been a healthy skeptic about these types of products. So, when my company (Beachbody) came out with a similar product, I was curious to give it a try. Beachbody workout programs have always been top notch, but I was still skeptical about a nutrition shake. This particular product is called Shakeology. Here is the company description:
Even if you searched all over the world, you probably wouldn't be able to find all of the 70-plus, ultra-high-quality ingredients we've included in Shakeology. Not only do you get a wide range of essential nutrients, from the fruits and vegetables you should be eating more of every day, you'll also get the benefits of important foods from all around the world—foods that the latest scientific research has shown to be highly advantageous to your well-being.
More than 70 different ingredients were chosen from around the world for their potency and bioavailability (the ability to deliver the nutrients your body needs). Here are the key nutrient groups that these ingredients deliver:
  • Protein and Essential Amino Acids to help build long, lean muscles and reduce food cravings.
  • Prebiotics and Digestive Enzymes, which aid in improving digestion, regularity, and nutrient absorption.
  • Antioxidants and Phytonutrients to help counteract free radical damage that can lead to degenerative diseases.
  • Vitamins and Minerals your body needs to function for optimal health
Well, I've gotta tell you that now I am hooked. I'm using the Greenberry flavor (yes, it's actually green) and it has been a wonderful way to kick-start my day. It is so yummy and I feel totally energized soon after I drink it. I totally support whole foods, but honestly, how many of us get in the servings that are recommended. Shakeology helps me feel a little less stressed about fitting in as many fruits and veggies during my hectic day.

I am not one to PUSH any particular product. I sincerely recommend this one and would LOVE to hear what you think. Unlike probably any other shake our there, it comes with a 30-day money back guarantee so there is no risk in giving it a try. At $120 for 30 days worth, it is not cheap, but when you think that most folks spend at least $4-5 per day on a meal or even a latte, it seems totally worth it.

There is a ton of information at Shakeology.com, and if you are interested, you can order at my site HERE. I'd love to hear what you think.

As always, have a safe, happy and healthy week ahead.
