Happy Birthday Shakeology, you have changed my life!
I am often asked, “What is Shakeology?” Now that’s a loaded question for me because I am so passionate about Shakeology that I get really excited to share my passion for this product that has truly been life changing for me and for my family. When I am able to explain to someone that there are no other shakes like Shakeology on the market, I can wholeheartedly say that with conviction. It’s truly a unique formulation that I have not found exists in other products, so it holds a unique place in the meal replacement market. There are so many products on the market today that are marketed as “weight loss” or “protein” shakes and they promise to provide their customers with benefits that are unproven. There aren’t any “miracle” products! They just don’t exist. But, you are getting something from Shakeology that other products just don’t have. But first, we have to overcome the objections from others who don’t understand the great benefits that Shakeology has to offer.
Here are statements I hear often:
It’s just another protein shake.
Explain the price.
I don’t like the taste.
I hope this sheds some light on all three.
…Shakeology is NOT a protein shake. It is NOT a weight loss shake. It IS a globally sourced superfood of nutrients, vitamins, proteins, and minerals. It IS a 100% natural (macro and micro) nutrient dense meal replacement. It is NOT a one-dimensional protein shake. The fact that some people say it tastes like “chalky” or “cheap chocolate” is actually a selling point.
Our taste buds have been so “brainwashed” to what real whole foods actually taste like, that we generally don’t know natural real whole cocoa from processed chocolate. Believe me, four years ago, my taste buds had no clue what they were getting themselves into. Because Shakeology is 100% natural (created by Darin Olien, who has a Masters Degree in Nutrition and Agricultural Anthropology) the standard to remain natural does not allow for ANY artificial flavors, colors, stimulants, sweeteners or chemically modified micronutrients. Darin, who is also a Vegan, knows his stuff and so much more about whole foods. Nearly every single product found in gyms, GNC, the internet, you name it, have a LARGE amount of manmade chemicals (specifically soy, artificial flavors and artificial sweeteners) dumped in it so that it tastes appealing to the general public’s “idea” of what food SHOULD taste like. The fact that Shakeology tastes the way it does is exactly it’s selling point and makes it attractive. When you add ONLY what nature provides, you get the CLEANEST and PUREST product possible. The cool thing is that it doesn’t take long for your tastebuds to adapt to the flavor and you begin to crave the taste of Shakeology!
On to the superfoods. I know the average person doesn’t know what Astragalus Root, Ashwagandha Root, Chia Seed, Maca Root, Gogi Berries and Reishi Mushrooms are (just to name a few super foods, I will spare listing all 70 but you can see them all in the picture). Nor does the average person have general knowledge in all the health benefits and medicinal treatments that these foods have notoriously been used for centuries to treat examples as reducing free radicals from our body, improving our white blood cell count which helps us fight disease, reducing inflammation (the number one marker of EVERY disease), improving the natural flora in our digestive system, etc. If Beachbody grew these products in a lab and modified them to keep them cheap, that would be one thing, but EACH of the 70 superfoods are imported from the countries, climates and pure soil they originate from and then dried to a specific protocol to maintain a whole food- absorption integrity.
Does it really taste bad? By itself, with just water and shaken, I will say that it can be grainy and liquidy! But, by mixing in a blender and/or adding some natural ingredients to it (peanut butter, unsweetened almond milk, bananas, strawberries, plus cinnamon (Cinnamon is a natural herb that may help prevent arthritis inflammation when I am older. So, I add it everyday to my shake!) to adjust its base flavor it can be absolutely DELICIOUS!!!. For my personal favorite recipes, click here.
I’d love for everyone to appreciate and understand the VALUE of this $4 meal. I first hand, have hundreds of clients that Shakeology has reduced their needs for diabetic meds, statins and ace inhibitors. It’s also relieved countless cases of IBS, colitis, and arthritis.

To my customers, paying $4 and getting off their pricey side-effect laden medication is MUCH cheaper and a price well worth the $129 for an entire month supply.
They are so thankful for how great they feel and for the added health benefits that none of them has ever complained about its natural taste ♥
