Breakfast is a no-brainer for me. I’ve had the same thing EVERY DAY for over 3 years. You would think I’d get sick of it, but I don’t. Actually, I look forward to my super yummy, convenient and healthy breakfast. My body craves the complete nutrition without any chemical or artificial junk in it. It keeps me full until lunch, my health has been amazing, and most days it’s chocolate. Hello! Why wouldn’t I have it every day?
Despite the long list of benefits for consuming this amazing breakfast, there are still some common myths about my beloved Shakeology that keep people from trying it. Let’s take a look at a few… and bust the myths!
4 Shakeology Myths You Might Have Heard:
- Shakeology is just a protein shake
- Shakeology doesn’t contain whole food ingredients
- Shakeology is expensive
- Shakeology is only for weight loss
Myth #1: Shakeology is just a protein shake.
I can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for any shake. But all shakes are NOT created equal—especially ones that contain super foods. Shakeology is a very nutrient-dense shake.
You’d have to eat a whole lot of different foods to get the fiber, phytonutrients, protein, vitamins and minerals in a single glass of Shakeology—and it would be tough to do that for fewer than 170 calories. Truth be told, the majority of people are way more NUTRIENT deficient than they are PROTEIN deficient.
Myth #2: Shakeology is just a bunch of extracts, with no whole-food ingredients.
Whenever it’s possible and sustainable for the formula, the super foods in Shakeology are whole ingredient powders processed in a way to preserve their nutrient value. It’s more difficult to source these specialty ingredients, but Beachbody has a whole team of scientists whose mission is to help maximize the nutrition in every ingredient used in Shakeology. Imagine trying to eat all those super foods – let alone buy them! Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.
When comparing other shakes against Shakeology, take a look at the calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrate amounts, but also look at the INGREDIENTS. For instance, you might notice other shakes have zero grams of sugar. Or worse, they likely include artificial chemicals and fillers that our bodies cannot properly process. Shakeology has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Myth #3: Shakeology is expensive.
Most healthy shakes out there cost between $3 and $10. Shakeology, at $4.33 per serving, comes in on the low end of the average. When compared to other meal options of similar cost, Shakeology is far superior.
When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you’re buying 30 of your shakes upfront. It means you’ll spend less money at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, we actually deduct our monthly Shakeology from our grocery budget. I cannot duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients for the price. Since real food is also medicine for the body, many people are able to quit certain medications, supplements, and vitamins because Shakeology has them covered. Cutting out those expenses makes Shakeology even more affordable. I personally have reduced my prescription for acid reflux disease medication by 90%.
Myth #4: Shakeology is only for weight loss.
Most shakes are marketed for weight loss. And in the short term, many other shakes can help you lose weight. So can some pills and other chemical potions. But in the long term these are only temporary solutions that may do you more harm than good.
Alternatively, Shakeology is about health. When you put the right nutrients in your body (in the right amounts and combinations), you may ultimately have more energy, fewer cravings, and feel better. As a result, you might eat less and become more active. With Shakeology, weight loss is a byproduct of dense nutrition and a healthier lifestyle. Angie & I can attest to these results. My mom loves it too!
When was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and battling against a ton of cravings? That’s because you are likely nutrient deficient. Because it’s so nutrient rich, Shakeology helps you in your battle to lose weight.
Shakeology isn’t magic. It’s clean, dense nutrition made super easy. Don’t let the bed head distract you. My Shakeo is the best way to start the day!
