I honestly wasn't sure what to think about the claims Shakeology made when I first started researching it. I'm a vet of protein shakes, it's an easy quick breakfast that I can drink while getting ready for work.
But one day I bit the bullet and ordered a bag of the chocolate. Within about a week? I was a believer.
First and foremost for me? It tastes great. And there are tons of availabe recipes online where you can mix up the variations (I also have a few that I've tried that I'll be posting soon!).
But what really impressed me was how filling it is. I have my shake, during school at least, at around 6 in the morning. Snack time with the kids is around 10. And I have to say, that shake kept me satisfied for those four hours.
I felt more energetic and definitely had less cravings for sweets.
Now I can't imagine a day without it! On the weekends I usually have it as a post - workout meal or lunch since I have the time to cook a good breakfast on the weekends. But regardless, it really is a delicious and healthy way to get a lot of nutrients into one power packed drink.
Full disclosure - the chocolate is definitely my favorite. I tried the vanilla and while I liked it, the chocolate was what I ended up putting a monthly order on. I also tried the strawberry but found it to be a tad too sweet for me.
I definitely credit Shakeology with my success in getting healthier and more fit. If you have any questions about it, let me know!
