Nutrition: The Power of Shakeology. Sometimes, even when you use an amazing meal replacement like Shakeology that gives you energy, stops cravings, and covers all your nutrition needs for the day, you forget just how vital it is. For instance, during my days here in New York City as a member of the Hip Hop Abs infomercial test group, I have been taking Shakeology every day.
Very early on, when the trainers were figuring out our individual nutrition needs, they saw the need to up my calories and protein, but when they saw that I was a Beachbody coach and loved using Shakeology for my nutrition, they told me to go ahead and take it every day, unlike most of my non coach classmates who were introduced to Shakeology weeks later, and even then only as a rare treat. This was great, but the catch of it was that, due to my taking it every day, my provided food calories and protein were never upped along with some of the other test group members, since Shakeology took care of that for me. Also, since I was a coach, they just assumed that I would always have my own full supply, yet I had NOT assumed the need to bring it, so I’d been having it shipped to others back home for their use/storage/etc…
Thus, when I ran out and there was a gap in getting some from back home, I suddenly no longer had my daily nutrition needs met, and I suffered for it. This past week was the first week that I did not lose any weight whatsoever, and it was a week without Shakeology. Now, obviously my weight loss is going to be less now than it was when I started as I approach my goal, but I definitely still have fat to lose, and I thought I was working hard in the workouts, but I knew that my nutrition felt off, as did my energy level, and I once again had tons of cravings like I had the first week before I initially got my Shakeology.
So, the moral of the story is simply that something like Shakeology is never to be taken lightly when it’s part of your regular nutrition, especially when your nutrition has been calculated so accurately to your body and you’re really focused on seeing results. Always make sure you have your supply on hand, and that you’re on Home Direct straight to wherever you are so that you never miss a bag, because it WILL affect your energy, your cravings, and your results, and that’s certainly not something you want when on your journey to fitness!
