There are SO many protein shakes, weight-loss drinks, energy drinks and meal replacement shakes on the market today. It can be overwhelming to understand which is best for you and what the benefits are of each one. I get it — you want to be healthy, you want to make the right choice but also have a budget and also want to consume something that tastes good!! You ALSO need to consider WHAT it is that you are consuming!! SO many products on the market today are loaded with filler ingredients. Ingredients that are not best suited for consuming, but rather are there to improve the shelf-life of the product and to make it thicker, sweeter or just plain UN-healthy for you.
RETHINK YOUR DRINK — LOOK at what it is that you are consuming! What are the ingredients? Are they all-natural, are they derived from plant-based sources or were they created IN a plant!
If any of these are listed or you think they are —– RETHINK YOUR DRINK!
—-> Mono-diglycerides: Hydrogenated oil ((used for a longer shelf-live)) This TRANS FAT (ew!) is trouble for your heart health & increases cholesterol. This solidifies at room temp., think about what it does to your insides! How is this healthy??
—-> Soy lecithin: Commonly used in processed foods. Side effects may cause gastrointestinal issues, hormone issues, allergies, weight gain (can aid in weight loss however). It has a “gummy”, “sludgey” consistency. Again – ew.
—–> Heavy Metals: Arsenic and lead from “filler” ingredients (not from the protein source) that can lead to many negative side effects.
*This won’t be listed as an ingredient, but it is tough to know if it is in fact a part of what you are drinking. Many recovery drinks or protein shakes on the market do in fact have these as part of their ingredients.
Need I say more?? Just be cognizant of what it is that you are drinking. There are many options that are better for you and for your overall health & that will help you lose weight.

Shakeology isn’t a PROTEIN SHAKE – it is a meal replacement shake! It offers you the perfect blending of fats:proteins:carbs so that your body and your metabolism can operate most efficiently. It simply cannot be compared to any other type of shake on the market today. All of it’s ingredients are derived from NATURAL plant-based sources. The sugars are from NATURAL sources — not chemical-laden, man-made, sugar substitutes. This is simply the BEST there is on the market today. Having this for your breakfast or lunch each day, ensures you that you will be having at least ONE meal that is SUPER HEALTHY — that is why it’s called, “the healthiest meal of the day”.
