Look what came in the mail yesterday! I am so so so so excited! I came across Shakeology when I was doing research on the internet for a kick of something healthy to add to my daily routine and I was magically brought to this yummy concoction. What sold me was that it is NOT a protein powder or anything like that, instead, it is a mixture of over 70 natural healthy food sources from around the world,and has no artificial sweeteners or anything of that sort.
It’s known to help:
Curb cravings for bad foods
Cleanse your body of toxins and regulate your digestive system
Promote weight lose
Support your immune system
Support your cardiovascular system
When I read all this and did some more research, I wanted it. It came out to about $129 for 30 day supply which seems pretty costly but if you break it down, it comes out to about $4.30 a day which isn’t bad, especially if it is doing everything it is supposed to do for your health.
Since I want it for the health benefits and for weight loss, I will be replacing my breakfast with this shake (which is recommended). The awesome thing about it, is that it comes with a 30 day calender which has a different recipe for the shake everyday so you never get tired of it.
This morning was my first time trying it and I decided to try the PB&J flavor. I used 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup soy milk (I plan on using almond milk though- I just didn’t have any!), 1/2 cup grapes, 2 tbs natural creamy peanut butter, and a scoop of the powder. It came out really good! It tastes like a sweet shake that you would buy from the store and there are no traces of any weird tastes like the protein shakes usually have (I hate the taste of protein powders). I think that this recipe was a bit too sweet for me especially to have first thing in the morning so I have to play around with the recipes to see which ones I like most.
So my plan is to have this everyday for 30 days, go to the gym about 5 times a week, and see how much this helps me! I reached a plateau after losing about 15 pounds so i’m hoping that this helps kick start the wight loss again. I am just looking to lose 10 more pounds and then focus on getting lean and fit.
After 7 days of using this shake, I will do a little update to see how it’s been working for me.
Wish me luck!
