THE 5 MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS MADE ABOUT SHAKEOLOGY
THE 5 MOST COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS
Shakeology is a protein shake.
Meaning that it is just a shake that provides extra protein. I can't blame the general public for
thinking this, since "protein shake" has nearly become an interchangeable term for ANY shake.
But all shakes are not created equal—especially ones that contain superfoods. Shakeology is a
very nutrient-dense shake that can be used for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You'd have to eat a
whole lot of fruits and vegetables to equal the nutrition in a single glass of Shakeology—and you
probably couldn't do it for less than 170 calories. Shakeology makes it very easy to cut your
calories, without substantially cutting down your daily volume of nutrients needed. Truth be
told, the majority of people are WAY MORE nutrient deficient, than they are protein deficient.
So why just stop at a protein shake?
Shakeology is about comparing carbs, proteins, and fats to other shakes.
This is not at all what you should be comparing when you look at other shakes versus
Shakeology. Sure, other shakes have 0 grams of sugar. But how do you think those shakes
achieve that? Hint, it's not natural. Yes, that's right, they are probably using ARTIFICIAL
sweeteners to get to 0 grams of sugar. Even fruit has sugar in it. A shake with 0 grams of sugar is
using ARTIFICIAL sweeteners. Shakeology has NO artificial sweeteners, NO artificial colors, NO
soy, NO artificial stimulants, and NO artificial flavors. One of its main sweeteners is Stevia,
which is plant-based.
Shakeology is just a bunch of extracts, with no whole-food ingredients. That's not true.
Whenever it's possible and sustainable for the formula, the superfoods in Shakeology are
preserved in their whole-food state to retain maximum nutrient value. It's very difficult to use
whole, plant-based ingredients while also making sure the formula retains as much nutritional
value as possible. Shakeology has a whole team of food scientists whose mission is to maximize
the nutrition in every ingredient in Shakeology. Imagine trying to juice all those superfoods!
Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.
Shakeology is EXPENSIVE.
To anyone who feels this product is expensive, then I have not done my diligence in breaking
down its REAL VALUE. Most people will agree that they would spend an average of 3 to 7
dollars on a HEALTHY, nutritious meal. I know most store-bought salads cost even more than
that, and don't contain nearly the dense concentration of nutrients. But on average I think we
can all agree, healthy meals run between $3–$7. Shakeology, at $4.33 per SHAKE, comes in on
the LOW END of average. (You can make Shakeology into a breakfast or lunch that you'd be2
buying anyway.) Not only are you spending less than you normally would, but you are also
getting vital nutrients your body needs that you just can't get from your run-of-the-mill salad—
plus the normal range of vitamins and minerals. So you can replace your VITAMINS, too. Sure,
you may need a specific vitamin, based on your conditions, geography, or age, but in general,
Shakeology will provide you with a solid base of your whole-food nutrients.
Here is my next point. When was the last time you went to your grocery store and bought
THIRTY meals all at once? Typically, I'm guessing, you buy a few days' worth each time. When
you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you are buying 30 of your shakes up front. That means you'll
spend less money at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my
monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. For the price, I cannot duplicate its vast quality of
ingredients and nutrients.
Shakeology is only for WEIGHT LOSS.
Most shakes are marketed this way. But here's the thing. Anything will induce weight loss if it's
low enough in calories. Just because you are drinking a shake, does not mean the fat will melt
off. Actually, if you are not getting enough nutrients and calories you will actually inhibit your
weight-loss efforts. Shakeology is about HEALTH. When you put the RIGHT nutrients in your
body that it needs to develop, heal, recover, repair, and thrive, you may ultimately have MORE
energy, LESS cravings, and FEEL better, and therefore, you eat less and become more active.
With Shakeology, weight loss becomes a BY-PRODUCT of dense nutrition. To make my point,
when was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and have a ton of
cravings? That is because you may have been nutrient deficient. What if you're at your goal
weight or need to GAIN weight? Because Shakeology is about DENSE NUTRITION, you can use it
as your base and add clean calories to make it 300 calories or more. Not everyone needs to lose
weight, but everyone needs to be healthier. Shakeology isn't MAGIC. It's just clean, dense
nutrition made SUPER-easy for everyone at a very affordable price. It's my family's "fast food"
on the counter. Yes, my family goes through 4–5 bags a MONTH because, even though we all
have different weight and caloric needs, we all share the same NUTRITIONAL needs. Shakeology
isn't a weight loss shake—it's a nutrition shake.
