4 SHAKEOLOGY MYTHS, BUSTED!
Shakeology is a superfood nutrition shake that’s a
catalyst for positive change.
It helps build a strong nutritional foundation that we need to support us in creating a new lifestyle, like a fitness program or a healthier diet. It works by addressing some nutritional gaps our diets can have with potent ingredients that help support digestive health, provide healthy energy, reduce cravings, and just plain make us feel better. And when we feel better, we do better — making smarter choices and taking on bigger challenges.
That said, I really want to share some thoughts on some of the most common Shakeology myths floating around.
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 think what people mean here is that they assume that Shakeology is just a protein powder that you can buy anywhere. That is SO false, but I really can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for any shake.
Dude, did you HEAR me say SUPERFOODS?? You think your protein shake at the vitamin store contains those babies? Think again. THAT is really what sets it apart from the rest. Ever hear Dr Oz talk about superfoods?? They are rare, they have to be carefully extracted from our earth and minimally processed in order to receive a benefit when eating them and they are not cheap! Aaaand, they probably taste like CRAP if you bought them all separately and tried to drink them!
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.
TRUTHBOMB: the majority of people are way more nutrient-deficient than they are protein-deficient. #BOOM!
Myth #2: Shakeology Is Just a Bunch of Extracts, With No Whole-Food Ingredients
Whenever it’s possible and sustainable for the formula, the superfoods in Shakeology are whole-ingredient powders processed in a way to help preserve their nutrient value.
It’s more difficult to source these specialty ingredients, but Beachbody has a whole team of scientists whose mission it is to help maximize the nutrition in every ingredient used in Shakeology.
Imagine trying to eat all those superfoods! Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.
When you compare other shakes against Shakeology, take a look at the calorie, fat, protein, and carbohydrate amounts, but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD - also look at the ingredients!!!
For instance, you might notice other shakes have zero grams of sugar. How do you think those shakes achieve that? Hint, it’s not natural, as even fruit has sugar in it.
TRUTHBOMB: Shakeology has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives. #becauseEW
Myth #3: Shakeology Is Expensive
To anyone who feels this product is expensive, I know that I have not done my best job in breaking down its real value. Most healthy shakes out there cost between $3 and $10. Shakeology, at approximately $4 per shake, comes in on the low end of the average.
When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you’re buying 30 of your shakes up front. And, it means you’ll spend less money at the grocery store because you replace one meal each day with it. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. I cannot duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients for the price.
TRUTHBOMB: if you usually stop at the store for a breakfast sandwich and coffee, you're paying at least $7 a day for that unhealthy meal. So, technically you'd be SAVING money and eating HEALTHIER with Shakeology. #duh
Myth #4: Shakeology Is Only for Weight Loss
Most shakes are marketed this way. Shakeology is about health. When you put the right nutrients in your body, you may ultimately have more energy, fewer cravings, and feel better. As a result, you might eat less and become more active.
When was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and battling against a ton of cravings? That is because you may have been 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. It’s the ONLY "fast-food" my family eats!
TRUTHBOMB: Shakeology helps my digestion (I'd pay ANYTHING for that!), boosts my immune system and replaces my multivitamin and I've been at my goal weight for over 3 years. #healthshake #notforweightloss
