Shakeology Review: Does Shakeology Really Work?

You’ve probably heard all the hype surrounding Shakeology. I had heard nothing but great things about Shakeology before I decided to try it. Admittedly I was skeptical. I mean it’s just a shake right? Wrong? Read my Shakeology review and decide for yourself.

Shakeology is one of the top selling products offered by Beachbody. What makes Shakeology stand out from other meal replacement shakes are the superior, healthful ingredients that go into Shakeology. For more on just what goes into Shakeology see my post on Shakeology Ingredients.

Not another Shakeology review? Well yes of course. I just wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t give you my honesty opinion of Shakeology. I’m sure you’ve heard about Shakeology and have questions and concerns about whether it is right for you.

Why Was I Skeptical About Trying Shakeology?

Cost

I had two main objectives to purchasing Shakeology. First being the cost. If you are wondering just why Shakeology carries such a hefty price tag I can tell you in a word. It’s the ingredients. It’s all natural and sourced from over 70 nutrient dense ingredients from all over the world. It’s got your daily doses of proteins, vitamins and minerals. It also includes anitoxidants, fiber, probiotics and a whole host of other nutritious ingredients. Honestly I was more than a bit intrigued by the health benefits of Shakeology.

It’s funny how we never think twice about overspending on indulgences that won’t benefit us in a positive way. If you think you can’t afford Shakeology review this comparison chart. While you may not have a coffee every day or a burger surely there is something you know you can improve on. Think about what that could be and then decide what is really important you. I mentioned in my Les Mills Pump post about the ridiculous amount I spent on fast food and dining out. Read below to see the unhealthy vice I gave up to make Shakeology a healthier part of my life.

Carb Count

As a low carber I was pretty concerned about the 17 carbs in Shakeology. At that point in time I was only allowed 25 carbs. After reading over the ingredients I realized taking Shakeology would simply be like replacing some of my veggies for the day. Which is where most of my carbs come from.

The carbs in Shakeology are not the starchy carbs that come from pastas or potatoes. But carbs that come from healthful vegetables. There are also 6 grams of fiber which brings the carb count down to 11.

What did I Think About The Shakes?

The very first time I had the shake I mixed it with almond milk. This is what was recommended to me by coach. To keep carb count low I mixed equal parts water and almond milk. Not my thing. The shake had an odd taste.

I decided to try making my Shakeology, chocolate of course, with coffee. I refrigerate until cold. The coffee just makes it taste much more chocolatey. It’s especially delicious with flavored (not sweetened) coffees. My favorite, Khalua.

Next I ditched the almond milk and opted for heavy cream. I’m a low carber, I can do that. Oh man this is just magical. I freeze it until it’s the consistency of a Frosty and it’s amazing. I highly suggest experimenting with Shakeology recipes. Try different shakes or even food recipes.

One last thing I’ll say about the shakes is that I thought they were super filling. Overly filling for me in fact. I had to cut down on the amount of liquid I used and sometimes split it into two snacks.

Does Shakeology Really Work?

Weight Loss

One of my main objectives during my weight loss journey is achieving a certain number on the scale. Before I started taking Shakeology I was having a difficult time breaking a certain barrier. I can’t recall what weight I was at when I started Shakeology but sure enough after the first week the numbers started to move again.

I use Shakeology as a meal replacement and occasionally as a snack. Yes for me it did help me get the numbers moving downward on the scale again.

Decreased Cravings

Prior to ordering Shakeology I was having protein bars daily. I was pretty well addicted to them. I hated that I had to have them every day but really I just couldn’t stop eating them. It’s artificial sugar that does that.

Sometimes I have control over artificial sweeteners and sometimes it just spirals out of control. I wasn’t convinced the protein bars were the healthiest thing for me but I just needed something sweet to satisfy cravings. Shakeology was an excellent replacement because it satisfied my sweet tooth but doesn’t bring out the craving for sweets often caused by artificial sweeteners.

Did I mention I was paying $3 – $4 a day for these protein bars? That pretty much negates any objections I had to buying Shakeology

Improved Energy

I keep really odd hours and I am not a morning person. It takes me a good while to become alert in the mornings. With Shakeology I noticed I wasn’t as sluggish in the mornings and became alert a bit quicker. I didn’t feel zoom, zoom, zoom as if I had taken something. Just more alert.

Shakeology Review Wrap Up

What I really like about Shakeology is that it makes me feel like I am doing something healthy for my body. Especially having replaced protein with Shakeology.

Shakeology will help fuel your body and help you on your health and fitness journey. Is it a magic shake or cure all? No but a lot goes into Shakeology to make sure it is one of the healthiest things you can put into your body.

As with anything consistency yields results. If you’d like to experience improved mood and energy and feel the benefits of a healthy digestion system you should consider giving Shakeology a try.

Shakeology Ingredients

Here I am standing in front of the Wall Of Ingredients at the Beachbody Headquarters. If they look like little jewels of health it’s because they are. The Shakeology ingredients are what make Shakeology the superior meal replacement shake. When you see the Shakeology ingredients up close and personal it really gives you a full appreciation for just how time, effort and thought goes into creating Shakeology.

Shakeology Ingredients: Just what makes it so healthy?

Shakeology meal replacement shakes are made up of protein, vitamins and minerals as well as a host of all natural ingredients. Shakeology is designed to fuel the body with proper nutrients. Adding Shakeology to your daily routine can help reduce hunger and cravings and can aid in weight loss.

What Do the Shakeology Ingredients Do For You?

The super-foods and antioxidants/longevity supplements in Shakeology help to cleanse and detox the body as well a support a healthy immune system. Daily use of Shakeology will help aid in digestion and regularity. You are also likely experience increased energy.

If you are looking to lose weight try replacing one meal a day with a serving of Shakeology.

Where Can I Find A List Of Shakeology Ingredients

Below are all the currently available flavors of Shakeology.  Shakeology comes in a 30 day supply package or if you’d like to sample different flavors you can try a convenience pack. See below for a list of all the Shakeology ingredients for each flavor.

  • Chocolate: One of the best selling flavors and my personal favorite. Chocolate is great because it’s super versatile and goes well in a lot of recipes.
  • Vanilla: This is the newest of flavors offered from Shakeology and from what I hear it is getting rave reviews.
  • Strawberry: Strawberry is also a new flavor and it’s definitely at the top of my list of things to try.
  • Tropical Strawberry: Tropical strawberry is flavored with strawberries, bananas, and pineapples. Tropical Strawberry is one of the vegan options offered from Shakeology.
  • Greenberry: Greenberry is also very popular
  • Vegan Chocolate: A chocolate variety of Shakeology but without soy or dairy.

My P90X Results: Bring It! It’s Been Brought

Many women may think P90X is not right for them. Like I once did, they may believe it’s much too difficult. It can be difficult but Tony has lots of modifiers in this program. Even at my weight and lack of muscle tone I was able to get through all of the workouts.

Another reason women may think P90X is not right for them is they think they will bulk up like a man. Not so. I didn’t “bulk up” during P90X but this was the first time I actually saw muscle tone on my body. Case in point, notice the arms in the photo above.

Getting The Most From The P90X Workout

This program as I said was difficult. For me the hardest part was all of the pushups. My upper-body strength is terrible. Or was, it’s improving now. One great thing about this work out is Tony says “Do your best, forget the rest”. That’s just what I did.

There were a lot of varieties of push ups. I could only do two. Standard pushups and girlie pushups. But that’s all I could do so that’s what I did. And that’s ok. Don’t be intimidated. Do what you can you will still see great results

My P90X Results

For me P90X came right after Les Mills Combat. I began taking pictures in my Zagat t-shirt. And because it’s sometimes so difficult to notice our results when you are so large I decided to focus on the fit of shirt.

Back story. When I got this t-shirt I couldn’t fit at all. Not even close. Its been very rewarding to try it on month after month and see the progress I’ve made.

That being said, you can see the progress I’ve made in the photos below. You can’t however REALLY see the progress. That’s what inspired me to take the photo above. I wanted to really be able to see my P90X results. I didn’t however expect to be showcasing them here.

Why You Should Try P90X Even If You Are Afraid

As the saying goes you can’t argue with results. Completing a challenge like this will leave you feeling strong, confident and accomplished. There is a wide variety of workouts in this program so you are not likely to get bored. You will definitely get stronger and fitter. This is a mix between cardio, plying and resistance training. Oh and did I mention there is even some kick boxing which of course I loved. Give it a try and be sure to share your P90X results with me!

Mira Instant On Digital Bathroom Scale Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

As you can see I got my MIRA Instant On Digital Bathroom Scale and I’ll be reviewing it for you today. The Mira digital bathroom scale arrived not a moment too soon. If you’ll recall from my previous video my last scale stopped working so the timing was perfect.

The Mira Instant On Digital Bathroom Scale is produced by Mira Brands Inc who also put out a digital kitchen scale.  I should probably get one of those kitchen scales as I don’t have one. You can see from the video I was pretty excited to receive this scale. Not only because I needed a new bathroom scale, or at least a new battery. I was excited because I just love the sleek look of this scale by Mira. And it’s black. I love black. The kitchen scale is available in multiple colors, the bathroom scale however is only available in black.

Testing My Mira Instant On Digital Bathroom Scale

Time to hop on the scale. The timing was perfect as I had just gotten back from my doctor’s office so I had an accurate weight to compare it to.

A few features of the Mira Instant On Digital Bathroom Scale that instantly impressed me.

  • The scale isn’t glass or reflective or reflective. This probably isn’t a big deal to most, but for a blogger it’s something consider. When the surface of the scale is reflective you have to go through great pains to omit portions you don’t want showing up in a picture or a video.
  • Glowing blue light. I love black but I also love blue. This scale glows beautifully blue. Aesthetics aside, the backlight is very functional making the numbers readable in any sort of light.
  • Large Digital Readout. The numbers of the scale are very large and you can see, record or photograph them from a distance. I couldn’t do this with my last scale. I needed to become some sort of contortionist to record my weight so that it showed up in a video. With this scale I can record or photograph from a standing position

The MIRA Instant On Digital Bathroom Scale Unboxed

Isn’t it beautiful? I don’t know if it comes in other colors but I do prefer the black. Matched with the chrom it has a very sleek look.

The Weigh In

Time to hop on the scale. Everything seems in order. As I stated above the digital display is easily readable in any light and from standing distance. Oh scale, why didn’t you say 160? Nevermind me, the struggle continues.

mira instant on digital bathroom scale

Wrap up. Where was this scale when I was looking for scales? I like it. Love it even. I hope it lasts long. The scale does come with a 2 year warranty. So that’s reassuring. We’ll see how it fares with battery life as well.

Les Mills Pump Results

Les Mills Pump was the first Beachbody work out program I tried. I discovered Les Mills Pump late one night while watching an infomercial. At this point in my weight loss transformation I had been doing moderate walking on the treadmill. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to tone up enough.

Though I had access to a full gym I didn’t have any idea how to the various machines. I remember wishing that I had someone to teach me how to properly train my muscles. Who says wishes don’t come true? That’s when I saw the infomercial for Les Mills Pump. I knew instantly I had to have it.

But What If? Say No To Negative Thoughts

The very next day I ordered Les Mills Pump and my obsession with Beachbody began. I acted promptly but believe me I had my doubts. You know those typical nagging thoughts that prevent you from trying?

  • My gosh that’s a lot of money –  Yeah it was a lot of money but I was spending more than that on fast food and dining out. And look where that had gotten me.
  • I’ll never be able to do that –  How would I know unless I tried? If worse came to worse I’d just do the best I could. Anything is better than doing nothing.
  • What if doesn’t work? –  This one is almost laughable. Of course it’s going to work. Did I think they obtained those bodies by NOT working out? From the looks of my own body I’d guess not.
  • What if I buy this and never use it? –  This was my final resistance. To which I told myself “At least you will have it when you are ready”. But I was ready then so why prolong it?

The Les Mills Pump Work Out

I am so happy I finally made an effort to do something positive for myself. To stop wasting the precious years of my life in a body that was making me miserable. Popping in that DVD for the first time was exciting. Yes I was somewhat apprehensive. When I started Les Mills Pump I was 357 pounds. I had serious doubts whether I would be able to do the moves. For the most part it was completely achievable even at my weight.

I had no upper body strength so for a very long time I only used the 5 lb plates. And that’s ok. They even give you the option to work out with just the bar or with no bar at all until you are comfortable with the moves. At my weight I had issues with my knee joints so I substituted the lunges with a shallow squat. Of course my squats were shallow too.

Les Mills PUMP Results

I did Les Mills Pump for 6 months straight and as you can see I achieved some pretty good results. I still reach for Les Mills on and off depending on which routine I’m doing. It ties in well with any cardio routine and I frequently use it that way. This is fun workout that will have you feeling strong and powerful. If you are thinking about trying Les Mills PUMP I highly recommend it. Don’t tell yourself “I can’t” tell yourself “At least I can try”.

Les Mills Combat: Awesome Results With Combat

Woot, I’ve graduated! My Les Mills Combat results are staggering. This high energy work out is by far one of my all time favorites. I just can’t get enough Les Mills Combat. I was so excited with the Les Mills Pump program and the results I achieved from it. When I heard the Les Mills team was coming out with another DVD work out program I couldn’t wait to try it. Read on, and be sure to check out my Les Mills Combat results pictures.

Les Mills Combat The Best Gift Ever

Les Mills Combat was released in or around December of 2013 and I ordered it as a gift to myself. I didn’t actually begin the workout until January as I was finishing up another routine. Wow. It’s amazing. Just like Pump, Combat is high energy. In fact it’s even more fast paced than PUMP. Don’t worry, not too fast paced. This is another workout I believe anyone could do.

What I love best about Les Mills Combat is that most all of the moves are standing. And when you do have to go to the floor it’s only for a few minutes at the end. The music selection is excellent, in fact you may find yourself Googling the songs. I know I did. Here is a full list of the Les Mills Combat Soundtrack.

Getting Started With Les Mills Combat

This program isn’t difficult at all to get into. In fact all you need are the gloves which came with the program. It’s a combination of cardio kick boxing and additional DVD’s provide HIIT (high intensity interval training). I followed the work out guide as prescribed. Some days my knees are in worse conditions than others. On those days I swapped the HIIT for something with less impact.

You will need to develop your coordination with this one. But it comes easily within the first couple of weeks. For me some of the kicks were a bit difficult at first. Especially when it came to achieving balance. You’d be surprised how much easier it becomes over time. This is a killer routine which will rip you to shreds. It was astonishing to watch the changes in my upper body.

I achieved absolutely amazing Les Mills Combat Results. What’s so great about this workout is that you can achieve amazing results and it doesn’t seem so hard. Check out my Les Mills Combat results pictures and you’ll see just what I mean.

This is another work out program that will be on my forever list. I take time out to mix it up with other routines but this is one I’ll always come back to. A note to Dan, I love you. I can’t wait to meet you in person some day. Yeah, you see how I just willed that into my future? That’s how you have to do it.
