Beachbody and Shakeology is not a diet plan. Instead, it is a healthy lifestyle choice. Yes, I am active (I love to workout) and I need good food to fuel my body. I also have a huge sweet tooth… when I drink the chocolate shake in the morning I feel like I have had my fill of sweets for the day and I can focus on eating better foods. It’s a win-win!Since starting to drink the shakes I have also had more energy and even have been able to wake up earlier to get a head start on my day before my little crazy kids even wake up! I have never been able to beat their 6 am wake up time until now! Plus, I have energy that lasts all day!
Unlike other protein shakes or meal replacement shakes, the Shakeology ingredients are all superfoods, have no artificial ingredients, and isn’t chemically produced in a lab in hopes of giving you health benefits. Instead, the Beachbody Shakeology ingredients come from around the world to give you pure and clean health benefits.
There are 6 main Nutrient Groups in Shakeology:
