Does Shakeology Really Work? Everything you Need to Know


Shakeology is a delicious, nutrient-dense, superfood-packed meal replacement shake that is unlike any other shake on the market.


It’s made with whole food ingredients & a super-food blend—the perfect combination of proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics. Plus, it also contains many rare ingredients extensively studied & proven to help overall health, but ingredients we don’t normally get in our regular diet. Whether you use shakeology to help aid in weight loss, or, drink it to optimize your health, this powerful and delicious shake is your daily dose of dense nutrition.

Loaded with all the essentials.

When I first heard about Shakeology, I didn't understand exactly what it was. I thought it was your typical protein shake. Wow, was I wrong about that!! I had drank a few different brands of protein shakes in the past. I thought they tasted fine, but, truthfully, never noticed any benefit or difference between the different brands. I didn’t notice any improvement in my health of fitness. When I was introduced to Shakeology from a friend, I had never before heard of it. Like many, my initial thought was, "It's how much?" I had no idea what was in the shake and all of its benefits, which I quickly learned. I quickly learned that it is worth much more than the price I pay for it. Shakeology is a complete nutrition shake loaded with all the essential nutrients (and delicious!). Many confuse this with a protein shake like others on the market, but this is by far packed with more nutrients than other “shakes”. And I’ve tried a lot). One of the things that stood out most to me was that it has no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, or, additives.

A life changing addition.

As many of you will learn as you follow my journey, I have struggled with infertility. My children are the beautiful and miraculous products of in vitro fertilization. Prior to becoming pregnant, I met with a nutritionist who advised me to avoid all things artificial, SPECIFICALLY sweeteners. I admit, I LOVED diet cokes & sugar free white chocolate powder in my coffee. However, I quickly realized how bad these were for my overall health & my fertility. So, I was thankful I found a shake that did not have any of these harmful products in them.


Shakeology has been a life changing addition to my nutrition & fitness, particularly in my journey to lose the baby weight after I had my daughter (first child). To be honest, I was skeptical about Shakeology to begin with. It seemed expensive, and I really wasn’t a Shake girl. Like many others have stated, I liked to eat my food. However, it quickly because my favorite meal of the day. After extensive research (I’m a nurse practitioner and I like to know what I’m getting in to!!), I found that it had only the best of the best products, great testimonials, and extensively researched & healthy ingredients. I decided to try Chocolate to start as I began my first round of the 21-day fix. I also wanted a quick & easy option for breakfast when I went back to work after maternity leave.  When I ordered my first pack of Shakeology & the 21-day fix, I decided to become a Beachbody coach, because it gave me the opportunity to save 25% on my shakes. I was so early in my transformation but I had a feeling that I could help others get healthy & lose weight, too, so, I decided to give Shakeology & Beachbody Coaching a shot. After all, I had nothing to lose.

Bye–bye coffee!

I have no doubt Shakeology was the game changer for me. When I first started my first round of the 21-day fix approximately 8 weeks after I had my daughter, I noticed an immediate difference. I had WAY more energy than I should have despite waking multiple times in the night. I no longer had that mid-afternoon energy crash. I no longer was drinking coffee! I remember specifically saying to my husband, “It has to be the Shakeology. There is no other explanation for why my energy is so high.” I have no doubt it’s because I was nutrient deficient. I truly think the Shakeology made the biggest difference as far as getting back into pre-pregnancy shape after my daughter & now my son.

My favorite meal.

I have it each morning as my first meal of the day and it has quickly become my favorite meal. Shakeology replaces 1 protein serving for the day. Shakeology provides you with 70+ vitamins and minerals. In fact, while pregnant, and breastfeeding, my doctors advised me I no longer had to take my prenatal vitamin because my Shakeology had everything I needed in it (though I add folic acid and fish oil as I need more of this when I was pregnant). Most people find they don’t require any other vitamins, minerals, or supplements from the store (unless they are specifically deficient in one area). My fertility doctor gave the go-ahead to continue my Shakeology while I was going through my in vitro fertilization cycle. That to me was a testimony of the high quality nature of this amazing meal replacement shake.


Some people drink Shakeology for weight loss, to gain weight, for weight maintenance, and to simply be healthier & get stronger physically it works great for either purpose. This truly is about creating healthy, lasting habits!!
