The Shakeology Scam
Trust me when I say I have heard people talk about the Shakeology scam when people are talking about P90X, Insanity, Turbo Fire and many other of our great workout programs. I will be the FIRST to tell you that Shakeology is not a MAGIC shake. You can’t just drink a shake and BOOM, you are fit and healthy. I’m sorry, it just doesn’t work like that. We teach people that you must workout, eat right whole foods, use portion Control, and have a support system. The Shakeology scam mindset gets to me from time to time because its usually from somebody that does not want to make any changes in their life and is happy with where they are at. I for one, will never be happy with where I am. It’s rewarding to set goals and challenge yourself on a constant basis. What I have seen from Shakeology is that it increases my energy, helps me cut cravings for the junk I so much love. (Reeses, sour patch kids, and Chips and Salsa.) It has also helped me to give more effort and energy into my workouts. I have now been using Shakeology on a religious basis for over 3 years and almost can’t go a day without it. I want to share with you what I read the other day in one of our support groups on Facebook from my friend Matthew and his experience with Shakeology. The conversation goes as stated below.
I had my yearly check up at the VA today and it was interesting to say the least! The appointment was to go over my blood work that they took last week. The conversation went like this:
Doc: So I have to know what has changed since last year?
Me: What do you mean?
Doc: Well first off you are twenty pounds lighter than you were last year, your blood work shows a staggering increase in all your vitamin and mineral levels since last year, and your blood pressure is nearly perfect! According to your charts you are healthier now than you were at 18 when you joined the army!
Me: Well, about this time last year I signed up as a Team Beachbody coach.
Doc: Aha! So you are drinking Shakeology aren’t you!
Me: Yes I am.
Doc: That is some of the most amazing stuff! There are quite a few patients in the area that have had their levels dramatically increased that tell me it is from drinking Shakeology.
Now I have seen the testimonials and I know how drinking Shakeology makes me feel, but to have my Doctor show me my personal results just blows me away!! I love this stuff!
