What is Shakeology all about? Healthy Results!

Aside Posted on

Today I have had many people ask me what exactly is this Shakeology thing all about.  This just delights and excites me!  Why? Because truly I am the product of the product.  I am a natural hard-core skeptic turned devoted believer!

I think I mentioned before, I have rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and put too many hours into my work (required!) as a medical transcriptionist.  Additionally, I am finishing my BA degree online.  I have neglected my overall health for quite awhile and then added in too much wine (on a daily basis!), not enough exercise (or none at all for days at a time!) and just lazy, unhealthy eating habits.  When I was introduced to Shakeology I felt physically and emotionally awful, basically defeated and feeling stuck in a rut, and was willing to give it a try.  I will forever be thankful that I did!  I actually find that I worry about future provisions of all these super foods and ingredients that go into making my most important meal of the day with all the global changes happening around our planet.  Anyway…that is a whole other subject to blog about later!

Within the first week of being on Shakeology I noticed drastic changes and differences in my health and how I felt.  I knew I was not imagining this either!  The daily aching, deep and sharp pain I had in my hips was gone, for which I have had multiple cortisone shots over the years to help alleviate this pain.  My feet and my ankles were hurting so much I was reducing my walking, which I love to do with my dog.  Also, the swelling was causing me problems in my lower legs.  This too has completely been obliterated.  Lastly, my shoulders.  I have had shots in my shoulders too, and now I have absolutely no pain.  NONE!  I have had so much energy I no longer feel the need for a nap each afternoon.  I sleep deeper at night and feel refreshed and rejuvenated when I wake in the mornings.  Another wonderful benefit: because my pain is gone, I am exercising more!  I give all my thanks to Shakeology to start this chain reaction in my life.  Believe me, I have tried many, many different products for losing weight, reducing cravings and having extra energy with zero, let me say that again, ZERO results and ZERO benefits.

Because of so many incredibly positive effects Shakeology has given to my life, I want to shout to the world and inspire others.  I wish every person on this planet could be on Shakeology.  I wish it for you, too.  My hearts desire is to be an example, to inspire, to help YOU on your journey for taking care of yourself.

Here are a few results I am sharing from others from yesterday and today:

“Since I have been using Shakeology daily, my digestive issues have disappeared, my overall psyche feels so right on and I have a ton of energy.” -Lee W. (Ventura, CA)

“I will admit, I did take a break from Shakeology for reasons that I just can’t even justify, because looking back, it was not a smart choice at all!  I felt like I had no energy, was craving junk, gaining weight and was just not happy.  Now I know that this isn’t all because I stopped drinking Shakeology, but there is a trickle effect that really does boil down to that one change I made.” -Shannon W.  (Brampton, Canada)

Take a few minutes and quench your curiosity by watching the video below.  If you want more information, please send me an e-mail at: KeepChoosingConsistency@gmail.com.

However, if you just want to sample the product and be a product yourself, please go to http://myshakeology.com/Dbluuendy and look at all the flavors Shakeology comes in.  My favorite is the strawberry, but most people say the chocolate just rocks!  No matter, there is a 30-day money back guarantee and free shipping on home direct orders.  What do you have to lose?  The better question is what do you have to gain?

Thanks so much for listening to my excitement and I am really wishing you all good health!

Keep on Juicing

Did you know that every cell in our body has a lifespan? Dead cells are constantly being replaced with new ones. Over the course of the next 7 years, literally every cell in our body will be regenerated. New cells often contain small errors and THIS is why we age. The errors in our cells increase with the amount of free radicals we take in on a daily basis. Smoking, drinking alcohol and eating unhealthy foods speed up the aging process and put us on fast track to developing disease and illnesses.

Fruits, vegetables and other plant-based foods naturally contain compounds known as antioxidants that neutralize harmful free radicals and protect our cells from further damage. Being healthy, and most importantly, the process of digesting and utilizing healthy foods, slows down the aging process so we can enjoy every day to the fullest.

The vast majority of certain diseases such has heart disease, diabetes, obesity, stroke and cancer, can be directly attributed to the consumption of the “western diet,” which consists of too many processed foods that are high in sugar and salt and too few fruits and vegetables. It seems that we have forgotten wheat we learned in grade school science class, that we are made up of cells and that cells need only 3 simple things to survive: food, water and air.

Many people dislike the taste of many types of vegetables and so many people also assume the cost of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables far surpass prepackaged or processed foods easily found through your local grocery store or available through a drive-through window at your local McDonald’s. I cannot express how untrue these facts are! Recently I had to perform a comparison assignment in my math class showing the difference in costs between fresh and prepackaged food items and I was shocked at the amount I paid for food items found in the frozen food aisle versus fresh produce I assumed was more costly. Do the math yourself and see the difference!

Juicing is something everyone should implement into their daily lives, especially those who really do not care much for fruits or vegetables. I received the Nutribullet as a Christmas gift and use it daily for both my morning Shakeology shakes and additional fruit/vegetable/nut/grain shakes I experiment with for in between snacks and supplements to my meals. You will find your body will begin to crave healthy and fresh foods more and more, you will feel fuller and the benefits to your health are just priceless.  Image

Start adding more fruits and vegetables into your diet and drink your Shakeology shake daily. If you would like more information about Shakeology, please click on the Shakeology links above or side of my blog, and always feel free to contact me for any additional information you may want.

Keep on juicing for your health and Keep Choosing Consistency,

Wendy
