Team Beachbody is responsible for distributing some of the most powerful workouts that you can get your hands on today. From Tony Horton’s P90X to Chalene Johnson’s Turbo Fire and Shaun T’s Insanity. So when Beachbody recommends a nutrition shake, we sit up and listen.
What Shakeology Is
Shakeology is the meal replacement shake released by, and endorsed by, Beachbody. It’s designed to help you lose weight while also feeling more energy throughout the day. It has also been shown to lower cholesterol and has helped many people eliminate medications certain. Shakeology focuses on gently removing toxins while also priming the body to be able absorb the nutrients that it needs more efficiently.
How does Shakeology do this?
With a combination of digestive enzymes and prebiotics, it works to flush and remove the toxins from the heavily processed foods that make up most Americans’ diets today. While that flushing is happening, Shakeology‘s whole-food ingredients give the body amino-acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The combination of the 70+ ingredients found in Shakeology also help you curb cravings so that your body can shed unwanted fat while the antioxidants will help you reduce free radical damage which will reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke.
But Won’t I Be Starving Myself?
We’ve talked before on how to calculate calories for P90X and how reducing food intake dramatically isn’t a healthy or good way to lose weight. However, a meal replacement shake such as Shakeology, which is designed to replace one meal a day, isn’t the same as fasting or starving yourself. You’ll still be getting all of the nutrients that you need from a full meal, however, because the shake helps you control your calorie intake you won’t be getting any unnecessary fats or calories that you would from a full meal.
What Shakeology Isn’t
Shakeology isn’t a crash diet. Crash dieting solves nothing. But using Shakeology as a key tool in your nutrition toolbox to help you lose weight the right way will not only help you to reach that desired, healthy weight but also help keep it off by instilling healthy eating habits along the way. Oh, and by the way, it’s incredibly tasty and there are literally dozens of recipes so that you’re sure to find a version that you like that will never make you bored.
