The common perception is that if you simply eat healthy and take care of yourself, you’ll be fine. My goal with this Shakeology review is to show that Shakeology is actually a very sophisticated tool to help us get the nutrients that we need as modern society and big-agriculture have changed the foods that we eat to such a degree that we simply aren’t getting the same nutrition that we used to.
On a very basic level, Shakeology is proven to lower cholesterol; the lower our LDL (bad cholesterol is) and the better the HDL (good cholesterol is) and the longer we live. If this isn’t enough for you to consider incorporating Shakeology as a supplement to your diet, then read on…
My Shakeology Review – Shakeology vs. Protein
Protein is a one-trick-pony. There, I said it.
For the most part, your typical protein shake contains only one of the macronutrients (and at best trace amounts of the others) and we’ve been seduced by supplement companies into believing that protein is the end-all-be-all, magical muscle-building supplement.
Yes, protein is important, but so are carbohydrates and healthy fats! In fact, most people get more than enough protein in their diets through whole food sources. A protein powder such as whey is really just a more convenient way to increase protein and amino acids in the diet, but little more.
To this point, I don’t recommend more than one shake per day and that’s only if the rest of one’s diet is on-point. Our primary focus with our clients is an emphasis on whole, healthy foods.
By contrast, Shakeology provides you with the perfect blend of proteins, carbs and fats, but that’s just scratching the surface… read on!
Shakeology is a nutrient-dense SuperFood
Unlike a simple protein powder, Shakeology is comprised of a perfect balance of proteins (either whey or vegan), carbohydrates and fats. This makes it a completely balanced superfood as it also contains a nutrient-dense mix of amino acids, antioxidants, phytonutrients, adaptogenic herbs, prebiotics, probiotics, and digestive enzymes.
In short, Shakeology is a powerful superfood formula designed to give your body the perfect combination of nutrients to help give you energy, reduce cravings, maintain healthy body weight, and support your immune system.
Additionally, it contains ancient and exotic non-GMO superfoods sourced from around the globe that you simply can’t get at your local supermarket.
For my wife and I, as well as a countless number of our clients, this has replaced cupboards full of vitamins, minerals and other supplements, has us feeling more energized, curbs cravings, stabilizes blood-sugar, lowers cholesterol and is our little bit of added health insurance!
How Healthy is Your Shake?
An ultra-premium nutritional health shake, Shakeology provides the widest array of nutrients from around the world in a nutrient-dense but low-calorie formula. One that can’t be replicated anywhere, although many have tried.
Replace one meal or snack per day with Chocolate, Vanilla, Greenberry, Cafe Latte, Strawberry or Tropical Strawberry (Vegan) to increase your energy, reduce cravings, lose weight, improve digestion and regularity, and transform your health.
Simplicity is key.
If you do not have the time to find and gather high quality superfood, or you don’t want to have to source out, purchase and concoct your own superfood recipe, then you need to be on Shakeology!
Personally speaking, I simply got tired of spending tons of money on vitamins, supplements and anti-oxidants; I wanted an all-in-one meal-replacement that I could use as a quick supplement for an all ready solid meal plan.
Truth be told, Shakeology isn’t a ‘meal’ per se. At ~ 150 calories per serving, you’d have to add some fruit, more healthy fats and so forth for it to yield a complete meal and meet calorie requirements. More accurately, Shakeology serves as a great snack, in-between meals or as a quick daily go-to to compliment your already healthy and balanced nutrition plan.

What Flavour is the Best?
Taste, of course, is subjective. I can only tell you what I prefer and what our clients tend to lean toward, and that is chocolate. Personally, I prefer the vegan chocolate blend, but the whey version is delicious as well. If you like chocolate ‘anything’, hands down, this is my go-to.
If you prefer something a bit more neutral to mix with a wide variety of fruits, vanilla may be a better option for you.
Greenberry definitely tastes ‘green’. If you’ve ever used Greens+ or a similar greens supplement, or if you are familiar with and enjoy wheatgrass, the flavour is reminiscent. “Earthy” and “Green” come to mind when describing Greenberry Shakeology. This isn’t to say it’s bad – it’s just a distinct taste.
Other delicious options include the newest Cafe Latte, Tropical Strawberry and plain Strawberry.
