One of our most successful Team Beachbody Coaches wanted to take a moment to share her thoughts on some of the most common Shakeology myths floating around. Here’s what she had to say!
4 Shakeology Myths You Might Have Heard:
- Shakeology is just a protein shake
- Shakeology doesn’t contain whole food ingredients
- Shakeology is expensive
- Shakeology is only for weight loss
Myth #1: Shakeology is just a protein shake.
Meaning just a shake that provides extra protein. I can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for any shake. But, all shakes are not created equal—especially ones that contain superfoods. Shakeology is a very nutrient-dense shake.
You’d have to eat a whole lot of different foods to get the fiber, phytonutrients, protein, vitamins and minerals in a single glass of Shakeology—and it would be tough to do that for fewer than 170 calories. Truth be told, the majority of people are way more nutrient deficient, than they are protein deficient. So why would Beachbody have created just a protein shake?
Myth #2: Shakeology is just a bunch of extracts, with no whole-food ingredients.
Whenever it’s possible and sustainable for the formula, the superfoods in Shakeology are whole ingredient powders processed in a way to help preserved in their nutrient value. It’s more difficult to source these specialty ingredient, but Beachbody has a whole team of scientists whose mission it is to help maximize the nutrition in every ingredient used in Shakeology. Imagine trying to eat all those superfoods! Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.
When you compare other shakes against Shakeology, take a look at the calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrate amounts, but also look at the ingredients. For instance, you might notice other shakes have zero grams of sugar.
How do you think those shakes achieve that? Hint, it’s not natural, as even fruit has sugar in it. Shakeology has no artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Myth #3: Shakeology is expensive.
To anyone who feels this product is expensive I know that I have not done my diligence in breaking down its real value. Most healthy shakes out there cost between $3 and $10. Shakeology, at $4.33 per shake, comes in on the low end of the average.
When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you’re buying 30 of your shakes upfront. And, means you’ll spend less money at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. I cannot duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients for the price.
Myth #4: Shakeology is only for weight loss.
Most shakes are marketed this way. Shakeology is about health. When you put the right nutrients in your body, you may ultimately have more energy, fewer cravings, and feel better. As a result, you might eat less and become more active. With Shakeology, weight loss is a byproduct of dense nutrition and a healthier lifestyle.
When was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and battling against a ton of cravings? That is because you may have been nutrient deficient. Because it’s so nutrient rich, Shakeology helps you in your battle to lose weight.
Shakeology isn’t magic. It’s clean, dense nutrition made super easy. It’s my family’s “fast food” on the counter.
