What Shakeology® Is (and Is Not)

What is shakeology (and what it's not) #health #fitness #21dfx


When I started The 21 Day Fix, I was absolutely against trying Shakeology®.  Why?  It was my thought if I was going to lose weight and keep it off, that I would need to learn how to eat, which meant eating “real” food all the time.

Plus, shakes?  I don’t like malts and I don’t like milkshakes, so I was positive I wouldn’t like Shakeology®.

I had a lot of misconceptions about Shakeology®.

Here are some truths about Shakeology®.

  • In one shake, you will receive 70 superfoods, your probiotic, your multivitamin and your sugar craving satisfied for less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks, or a meal at Dunkin Donuts – and it’s 100X healthier!
  • Shakeology® is delicious.  There are thousands of recipes to give you variety and keep you happy.  For me, it’s like having dessert.  I don’t need any other sweet stuff.
  • You can stop spending money on the multi-vitamins, omega-3’s and probiotics that probably are not working anyway.  Take a look at this article on the case against multi-vitamins.
  • When combined with a solid clean eating program, 30 minutes of daily  exercise, and a solid accountability group, you will lose weight, get healthier, get stronger and look better.
  • Get rid of those nasty tums.  Your digestion will improve through drinking Shakeology® daily.
  • 1 shake is 9 servings of fruits/vegetables
  • Shakeology® comes in 7 great flavors (Chocolate, Strawberry, Greenbery, Vanilla, Vegan Chocolate, Vegan Tropical Strawberry, and now Coffee Latte!).
  • All nutrients are in their most bio-available form (which means they can be absorbed and used by the body) – which is unlike any over the counter multivitamin.
  • Clean whole-food nutrition
  • A filling meal


What Shakeology® is not.

  • A diet drink.  While you can replace a meal to promote weight loss, Shakeology® not a diet shake.  It’s whole food nutrition.  Even if you are looking to get ripped, or bulk up – the pure ingredients are for you.  Drink it as a snack daily to get the full advantage.
  • A protein shake.  With 70 superfoods, probiotics, pre- and probiotics and digestive enzymes, protein, essential amino acids, adaptogen herbs and more – it’s 100x better and more nutritious than any protein shake on the market
  • Filled with junk.  There are no additives, sugar, or junk.  It’s the most high quality nutrition shake on the market today.

  1. Never heard for this before. I am not a big fan of veggies so this is a great alternative to get nutrients along with some digestive benefits.
