“I’m not a shake person.”
“I can make my own smoothies.”
“I can’t spend that much on a shake.”
You might think these are things I hear all the time about Shakeology. But, the truth is, they’re also things I’ve SAID or THOUGHT myself. I resisted trying Shakeology for months after it came out and was irritated that as a Beachbody Fitness coach, I was being asked to promote a SHAKE. Yuck.
Eventually, I tried it.
I didn’t want to like it. I didn’t want to think it did anything for me. BUT, I knew the FIRST TIME I tried it that it was the real deal. I had more energy immediately. I literally picked up the bag to figure out where they were hiding the caffeine or some other stimulant, only to find that there really wasn’t any. Just whole foods, superfoods, vitamins, minerals, adaptogens, pre and pro-biotics, and other healthy stuff I hadn’t even heard of. All natural and sourced from farmers/growers and my cells actually BUZZED from all the goodness.*
As I continued to drink it, I found the other benefits…in addition to increased energy, it reduced cravings, kept me from getting sick, and provided a sort of “insurance” policy that I was getting in a ton of nutrition regardless of what else I ate every day.* I found that while I wasn't a "shake for breakfast" person – I was a "shake person" after all!
I still wondered how to afford it.
Here’s what I realized:
- I stopped thinking of it as a shake or supplement – and started thinking of it as a meal that also included a multivitamin and the equivalent of a ton of supplements. I’m guessing that to re-create something that even came close, I’d need to spend more than $20/day.
- I realized I was eating less CRAP when I drank it. I was looking forward to coming home to have my shake instead of stopping for a “pick me up” snack or coffee when out and about. I found that I was actually SAVING money in the long run.
- I started thinking about what else I spend $5-$10 on without even thinking – Coffee? Smoothie? Adult beverage? A healthy meal out? A less than healthy meal out? A movie? All things that have no long-term benefit and/or can actually lead to long-term problems.
- After a while, the price of Shakeology started to seem like what it is – a bargain. To pay less than $10/shake is a screaming deal…and you can get it for between $3.50-$5.50/shake, depending how you order it.
There’s also a 30 day BOTTOM OF THE BAG Money Back Guarantee so you can try it yourself for a full month with no risk and an option to get a fitness program at a major discount when you order Shakeology.
I have trial kits (3, 5, or 7 days) of Shakeology ready to go out if you’ve been wanting to try it and see for yourself.
Message me for more info about any of these options – even if you’re “not a shake person” 🙂
