I have a LOVE AFFAIR with Shakeology. I found it about a year & half ago. It was the key component to transforming my nutrition & how I FEEL! My quality of life was horrible because I felt sick & week ALL THE TIME! I didn’t FEEL like playing with my kids, I didn’t FEEL like working, cleaning the house, going out on dates! I couldn’t think! I had brain fog all the time. Shakeology helped to change all of that! For that I am forever grateful & that is why I quit my corporate job to represent the product & this company.

What Shakeology —>>DOESN’T<<— HAVE & Why!
NO SOY, NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS & NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS.
SOY IS BAD —>> It’s cheap so distributers use it as a filler…… but what they don’t tell you is it disrupts digestion, lowers the immune system, it affects your thyroid & mental cognitive function as well as reproduction.
ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS ARE BAD —->> What they say is…. Oh it’s only so many calories…. But there are 100s of studies that show artificial sweeteners stimulate the appetite because it raises insulin levels but yet there is no calories that go with it so you have all this extra insulin running around your body & that causes carb cravings. They are proven to increase fat storage & they are a cancer causing agent long term. REAL or NATURAL sugar is better!
ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS ARE BAD —->> They are directly linked to ADHD, cause asthma, headaches & affects your thyroid.
If you are currently using fat free anything you are dealing with artificial. Also check any “protein” shakes, smoothies & meal replacement shakes for the above ingredients.
Your body was created to run on HIGH QUALITY FUEL not artificial fillers.
Look SPECIFICALLY at the ingredients list. You may be surprised!
