When a friend first told me about Beachbody and Shakeology, it took a while to sell me on the idea. I thought I ate pretty healthy already, and didn't think I needed to change anything. I didn't understand what was so great about Shakeology, and was not excited about spending money on it. After realizing that to see a change, I needed to make a change I decided to give it a try. I must say, it is one of the best decisions I've ever made. For me, Shakeology is like a drug.....I'm addicted! Only instead of ruining my health and life like street drugs would do, it makes both things better!
Within the first week of drinking Shake-O I noticed positive changes. Before shakeology, around 3:00pm every day I would start having headaches and constantly yawning...that stopped! Also, the "not feeling good" all the time thing also faded. Before shakeology I always felt sick. I constantly complained about having a stomach ache, headache, being tired or sick. It was always something! I annoyed myself with my complaints, not to mention the poor souls around me! Since I started drinking Shakeology I have not taken one sick day from work (sometimes I'm cursing it!). It has increased my energy, helped with snack cravings, and I seem to be digesting things easier and better. Overall, I feel damn good.
So what makes Shakeology so great you ask? Well, it has a shitload of healthy ingredients hand picked from all over the world! Stuff that people have been using since the ancient times!(seen pictured left). It is crazy what has happened with the food we eat in this country over the years. Every day we consume un natural, man made ingredients. Even our soil doesn't have the nutrients that it use to. This concerns me because it means that we are not getting vital things necessary to keep our bodies strong and healthy. Our bodies are starving for good, nutrient dense foods! Now I could go on for days about un natural, processed food and drinks but for the sake of explaining Shakeology I won't. Below is a great video with p90x creator Tony Horton explaining some benefits of Shakeology.
Do you want to try Shakeology, but think you can't afford it? Here are my suggestions to cover the cost.
-Stop going to Starbucks or Dunkins. I use to drink at least one Starbucks coffee a day totaling over $5 at least. I stopped going to Starbucks and started making coffee at home. Now every morning I put it in my shake and it tastes like a frozen coffee drink!
-Stop going to ATM's that charge you fees
- Cut down on going out to eat.
-Use a refillable water bottle instead of buying new ones.
-Return your families recyclables for the cash.
There are lots of things that you can do to save $4 a day. The bottom line is, if your health is important to you then you will find a way, and if it isn't you will find an excuse.
