If you’ve been a reader of mine for a while, you know I’ve battled with my weight for a very long time.
It’s no small challenge to lose 100 pounds and keep it off, while working to still lose weight on a consistent basis to reach my health and fitness goals.
I’m sure you can share my struggle.
Whether you have 10 pounds or 110 pounds to lose, losing weight starts with a decision to make a change.Losing weight starts with a decision to make a change.Click To Tweet
And it’s NOT big changes that make the difference.
For change to be effective and permanent you need to make SMALL daily changes.
It’s scientifically proven that small changes make a REAL difference in whether you succeed at your weight loss goals or don’t.
Recently, over the past year to my dismay I regained about 25 lbs… so I renewed my commitment to myself and made small changes in my lifestyle once again to move myself closer to my goals and make real progress again.
I promised myself and my accountability partner to workout for at least 30 minutes four times a week. Whether it involved bouncing on my trampoline, doing some serenity time yoga, or powering through strength exercises. I was going to enjoy it and I would GET. IT. DONE.
Another one of these simple changes was adding a daily powerful all-in-one superfood that delivered a powerful dose of dense nutrition and tasted delicious too!
My accountability partner Dana K., who’s our in-house Daily Superfood Love certified personal trainer and the fitness expert genius behind 10 Minute Workouts in my book Vivid Living, introduced me to these yummy shakes.
Normally, I’m not a fan of breakfast unless it’s brunch. But I do I love the idea of an easy nutritious shake that gives you all your daily vitamins, superfoods, and minerals in one protein packed punch.
When I first tasted it, I was surprised by how rich, thick, and delicious it was. There was no terrible aftertaste and best of all it was packed with powerful superfoods that I love and write about often! 🙂 Bonus!
It’s called Shakeology® and it’s made from a proprietary protein blend of whey, pea, sacha inchi, chia, flax, and quinoa.
What’s in this Powerful Superfood Formula?
- There’s a special antioxidant blend of whole coffee fruit, camu-camu, bilberry, green tea, acerola cherry, and vitamins A, C and E to help support a healthy immune system.
- It’s even blended with an ultra-powerful supergreen blend of moringa, chlorella, spirulina, spinach, and kale.
- And powerful adaptogens including – reishi, maca, ashwagandha, astragalus, cordyceps, and maitake mushrooms to help your body adapt and give it what needs to fight the effects of stress and disease.
- There’s even probiotics, prebiotics, powerful enzymes, and fiber to help ensure maximum nutrient absorption, support regularity, and healthy digestion.
It’s so easy to make, just combine one level scoop with 8 ounces of water or your favorite milk (I love coconut or cashew milk).
Did I mention it’s delicious! So far I’ve shed fat (15 lbs to be exact)…in six weeks!
But don’t just take my word for it…While almost everyone who drinks Shakeology on a regular basis has lost weight, many have lowered their cholesterol, while others were able to reduce their blood sugar levels and speak to their doctor about getting off prescription medications.
Plus, almost every Shakeology customer I’ve heard from has commented on how this superfood shake has helped curb their cravings for junk food as well as helped improve their digestion.
Shakeology has made a real difference in my ongoing transformation. It doesn’t matter how much you work out, if your diet isn’t right you can’t shed fat or all the pounds you set out to lose.Shakeology has made a real difference in my ongoing transformation. #ResultsClick To Tweet
Shakeology Results Are Real
Shakeology conducted an independent clinical study that sought the answer to the one question everyone keeps asking: “How effective is Shakeology?”
Numbers don’t lie.
This study was administered by an independent clinical research organization for natural health products. After a rigorous selection process, 50 individuals were chosen to participate in a 90-day clinical study and their results blew everyone away—including the clinic administering the trial.
Details on the study:
All 50 participants were required to drink Shakeology for breakfast and lunch for 90 days, without making any other diet or exercise modifications. Participation in the trial was monitored with a proprietary app that tracked their compliance every single day. This was a very valuable study because it isolated the effects of Shakeology, which is something that had never been done before!
Shed fat and pounds.
Turns out, when participants drank Shakeology for breakfast they had a significant reduction in the desire to eat lunch. Over the course of 90 days participants lost an average of 9.3 pounds, with the highest weight loss coming in at 24 pounds. WOW—losing that much weight in 90 days is quite impressive!
Another interesting fact about the results is that participants continued to lose weight throughout the entire study. This shows that the continuous use of Shakeology resulted in the healthy type of weight loss—slow and steady. And those are the kind of results that are sustainable for the long haul.
In addition to lowering the digits on the scale, another very important number that shrunk was participants’ cholesterol. The average total cholesterol reduction was 7% with the maximum reduction being 50%.
Lowered blood sugar.
The study also monitored participants’ blood sugar levels. And rather than testing just a single day’s blood sugar (which can vary based on what you ate that day or even the day before) the study evaluated the average blood sugar for each day over the 3-month period (also known as HbA1c). Turns out, participants reduced their blood sugar (HbA1c) by an average of 5% while some reduced their numbers by up to 19%. And keeping your blood sugar levels steady is important in helping reduce the risk of diabetes.
Shakeology saves the day!
Thanks to this study, there’s now proof that Shakeology really works. And it works really well.
So the bottom line is – Shakeology is now clinically proven to help you:*
- Lose weight
- Lower cholesterol
- Reduce blood sugar levels (as measured by HbA1c)
There’s one that includes 1 packet each of Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Greenberry. There’s even a Vegan Taste Sampler that includes 2 packets each of Chocolate Vegan and Tropical Strawberry Vegan.
My personal favorite flavors are Café Latte and Chocolate!
Here’s a delicious and easy recipe: Simply mix Shakeology Chocolate with one cup of almond milk, one cup of chopped fresh strawberries and blend well…can you say, “Hello chocolate covered strawberries!”
Remember, it’s called the Your Daily Dose of Dense Nutrition® for a reason!
