When it comes to weight loss or curbing cravings for sweets, women are the first ones who will try anything. Well, I have found the proven solution: Shakeology; for women who are pressed for time, who desire a weight loss solution, who struggle with sugar or other cravings and those who are desperate for an increase in their energy levels. Not only Is Shakeology a nutrient dense shake that promotes weight loss, it also offers, an alternative for sweet cravings, digestive health, and aides in helping to prevent the likelihood of certain diseases.
When I began drinking Shakeology, almost 2 years ago, I was not necessarily looking to lose weight. I had just completed my first round of P90X and already lost 12 pounds and over 8% body fat. I still had about 5-6 more pounds to go, but I knew that had to do with my eating and not just my workouts. Within two weeks of drinking Shakeology on a daily basis for breakfast, I noticed two important things. The first was that my days were less draining. To say I had more energy would be an understatement. My day begins at 4:30 am with an hour workout followed by teaching from 7-3:30pm, caring for my 2 children, homework, dinner, house chores, clean up and a bedtime routine, all which ended around 10 pm. I did not experience that “caffeine induced jittery” feeling at the beginning of the day, followed by hitting an extreme low later in the day. That was simply because Shakeology does not contain caffeine. What I did notice was when I sat down at 10 pm, I did not crash. I was not exhausted. And I was able to sleep well at night and get up the next day and do it all over again. The second thing I noticed almost immediately was I did not crave many of the sweets I once could not live without on a daily basis. I read that your body begins to crave sweets approximately 12 hours after you first wake up. This is when your body needs to refuel, or rest. Since I was up at 4:30 AM, 4:30 PM was my worst time of the day. I wanted chocolate, any kind and lots of it. Drinking chocolate Shakeology actually felt like I was getting my “sweets” in daily without actually cheating on my eating plan.
I did fail to mention while I had tremendous physical success with P90X, I was suffering terribly with my internal heath. I had been lactose or daily free for almost 15 years. I had cut red meat completely out and felt I was eating a pretty balanced diet. The problem was I felt sick and bloated constantly. DAYS would go by without the elimination of my meals…I was desperate for something to change. I read about the prebiotics and digestive enzymes in Shakeology and how they were proven to increase digestive health, regularity, and nutrient absorption. I was not convinced. I made a commitment to try Shakeology for the 30-money-back guarantee, but in my mind, I was only committing to 2 weeks. After day 3, I noticed a difference in the way I felt. Two weeks came and went and I was hooked. I felt energized, my bloated feeling was gone and I was more regular. I noticed foods that bothered me before, including raw fruits and vegetables, were no longer an agonizing digestive issue. My eating schedule became easier, filled more with lean meats, fruits, vegetables and less with grains and sweets. By day 30 I felt alive from the inside for the first time in a long time, I also noticed I lost an additional 6 pounds; 6 pounds directly from my midsection. I honestly felt like Shakeology had cleared out 6 pounds of toxins in my body.
Without mentioning how old I really am, I will say that I am at a point in my life where I find myself beginning to focus on diseases that affect women especially. The number one cause of death in women is still heart disease. Shakeology is an alternative to taking multiple Multi-vitamins to ensure as my body ages it is getting all the nutrients it needs. Shakeology is rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients which help counteract free radical damage that can lead to degenerative diseases, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and strokes. It also contains all the recommended daily dose of vitamins and minerals to provide your body what it needs to function for optimal health.
