Shakeology 411

You know my motto: Keep it simple. And really, nutrition doesn't get much more simple than drinking one Shakeology a day. It's totally up to you when you want to drink it: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack. There is no wrong way to do it. You can shake it up with water and ice, or you can blend it with additional ingredients. Your shake, your way.

When you really look all the healthy stuff you get with Shakeology, it's is an incredible deal.  One of my customers said, when learning of the price, "Cassie I would have paid TWICE that! This stuff is amazing".  So not only do you get your money's worth with Shakeology, because it tastes so amazing, is so healthy, and the attention to every detail is so complete, you truly get your money back in health benefits. 

It's your body, your health, your life—and YOU are worth the very best of the best.  We think so—and that’s the Shakeology difference.



Shakeology 411: No hidden costs
A phrase that I sometimes hear is 'Shakeology is expensive.' But it is? Really? Once you break it down, it comes out to be about $4/day. YOU are worth $4 a day.

While other shakes may be less upfront about cost and even less upfront about ingredients, it's important to look at the big picture. Since other shakes aren't as nutritious as Shakeology, the companies might recommend that you buy a separate vitamin and mineral pack that could run an extra $150 per month! If you want chocolate flavoring, then you might be out another $25 per month for a separate flavor packet. And if you want metabolism-boosting effects and appetite control, you might have to buy two additional products at $50 each. Once you add it all up, most other shakes are hardly a good deal.   When I say to folks that there really isn't anything else on the market that can compare to Shakeology, it's the absolute truth. 
With Shakeology, you get EVERYTHING in one bag for just $4/day!

Shakeology 411: The scoop on sugar
Our society has become inundated with "free" foods...fat-free, sugar-free, gluten-free...and there is a lot of benefit to decreasing sugar and eliminating gluten. However, if we choose to grab a drink or snack only because it says 'sugar-free' or 'fat-free', we aren't getting the full picture. 

If the sugar content has been taken out of a food, often SOMETHING has been put in its place. Other protein shakes might only have 1 gram of sugar documented in their Nutritional Facts, yet they are loaded with artificial chemical sweeteners (check the label for sucralose, aspartame, or sugar alcohols). Beachbody refuses to sweeten Shakeology with something so detrimental to the body. 
Shakeology’s small amount of sugar only comes from natural sources, which can easily be processed by the body. Plus, Shakeology has been tested and certified by an independent lab to have a Low Glycemic Index (GI) of between 14 and 29 (depending on the flavor).*** This is lower than most fruits (an apple has a GI of 39, and a ripe banana has a GI of 62).†

So while the best stuff in life might be free, read those labels to make sure you aren't paying a price you don't want to pay for something that is "free". 

Shakeology 411: Quality first
Hands down, QUALITY is a top priority for Beachbody.  We truly aren't willing to sacrifice quality for cheaper ingredients.
To ensure that every batch of Shakeology is of the utmost quality, Beachbody analyzes the source of every single shipment that shows up at the manufacturer.

From the Shakeology Blog: "If its discovered that the manufacturer is cutting corners, or that there are any quality or safety concerns (allergens), or shelf-life issues, we tell them to find another source, or else we’ll take our business elsewhere—no matter how inconvenient it is for us.. This is the kind of scrutiny that other companies simply don’t give their products."
