Why Shakeology?

2 years ago I was losing weight but I really had no clue what eating clean meant. I was strictly losing weight because of my calorie deficit. Well, strictly calorie deficit only works for so long until you hit that dreaded plateau. I needed something to help jumpstart my metabolism again and fuel my body.

Then along came Shakeology...

I started replacing breakfast with it and after about a week or so I started to see some great benefits. I was getting all of the vitamins & nutrition I needed in this one glass of chocolatey goodness (my FAVORITE flavor) and really started to notice my energy levels going up (I used to be so tired just 1 hour after waking up!), my skin & hair felt better, and after a full month I noticed the little pouch of my stomach starting to shrink (digestive enzymes!). I have also rarely gotten sick, maybe 2-3 minor times since I started 2 years ago, the immune system boost is a major bonus. 

I haven't gone without a shake since August of 2011 as it's something I now add in to my daily routine. Nutrition is 80% of transformation results and this is one BIG way in my daily life to contribute to that.

Shakeology Ingredients and Nutrition Facts
Shakeology is packed with more than 70 of the world's most potent, most nutritious, and most delicious ingredients. Not only does it provide a wide range of essential nutrients from the fruits and vegetables you should be eating every day, you'll also reap the benefits of incredibly nutritious food you'd otherwise never have the opportunity to eat. Food that nutrition science has shown to be highly advantageous to your health.
Plus, we were able to sneak fruits and veggies into every glass for those of you who are self-proclaimed "anything-but-vegetabletarians"—like Beachbody's own CEO, Carl Daikeler. (Carl's wife, Isabelle, helped create Shakeology to get him to "stop eating like a 2nd grader.")
Everything in Shakeology has been carefully selected for its unique nutritional quality, including ingredients that herbalists and natural wellness doctors have been using for centuries to holistically heal and fuel the body.*


What's a Superfood? Superfood is the collective name given to the most nutrient-dense foods on our planet. Superfoods go beyond meeting basic nutritional needs; instead, they have high concentrations of multiple nutrients, such as antioxidants, phytonutrients, or adaptogens, that work together to support the immune system and help fight aging.*


In our vegan Shakeology formulas, we blended brown rice protein with pea protein to create a complete protein source with high levels of lysine and methionine. These two very important amino acids are often limited in most plant-based diets. Along with brown rice protein and pea protein, we also blended in sacha inchi, chia, quinoa, flax, amaranth, and spirulina. There is absolutely no soy protein used in any Shakeology formulations. Though crafting this proprietary plant-based protein blend might sound easy, it truly is a rare feat.


Not only is sacha inchi a great source of protein, it's also a superfood. Which makes this Shakeology ingredient twice as good for you.
  • An organic vegetable protein that's easily assimilated
  • Naturally rich in good fats and fiber, which help control your appetite
  • Helps promote the body's natural anti-inflammatory response
  • Has a high concentration of omega fatty acids—providing a perfect balance of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9


If you're thinking to yourself right now, "Why isolates? What's the difference between an isolate and a concentrate? And why should I care?" keep reading.
  • Whey protein is a high-quality complete protein with rich amounts of all the
    essential and branched-chain amino acids.
  • Isolates are purer than concentrates, containing 90% or more protein.
    Concentrates contain between 29% and 89% protein.
  • Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey protein, which is why they're assimilated so quickly and efficiently into the body.
  • Isolates contain very little, if any, fat and lactose.
  • Isolates are a great choice if you're lactose intolerant, or if you experience bloating or other problems associated with concentrates.
