Why Shakeology, How to Mix, Get Healthy

I am so grateful you have decided to try Shakeology and take control of your life and health. Many of us tend to put ourselves at the bottom of our to do list, and then we forget to maintain our health. Our necessities do not get met, too often we worry about family, children, friends, way before we think of ourselves. If your child was sick and the doctor told you he/she needs to be on a special diet or therapy, how important would it be to make sure they get what they need?
Why are you not as important, you take care of your children, and family, you are needed at work and from friends, so give your body priority, allow it the nutrients it needs and get the energy and happiness you need to enjoy your day.

Comparisons of other meal replacements or drinks won’t compare and you can tell usually with just these 3 simple steps.

Look at INGREDIENTS if it has any of these 3 it is not healthy or the same quality:

1. Proteins is it Soy – made super cheap, been shown to lower immune system, affect thyroid, mental cognition and reproduction. Soy is Genetically Modified.

2. Artificial Sweeteners – stimulate the appetite by increasing insulin which increases carb cravings, & cancer causing agent long terms.

3. Artificial Flavors – to help taste, our taste buds are tricked to thinking real foods are boring unless all this sugar and chemicals are added. These flavorings are linked to ADD, causing asthma, headaches, and affecting the thyroid.

QUALITY
The process that goes into finding the right (healthiest) nutrients is long and detailed. Beachbody goes to the ends of the earth to find the best of the best when it comes to superfood ingredients. Quality Assurance is well defined and there is no supplier or manufacture that does the work for them. Beachbody knows the farmers; we know every step the ingredients take. Check the Supply Chain of the product you are consuming, where did the ingredients come from and do you trust the company you are buying from to get quality ingredients. Today food is at a nutrient deficient and Shakeology is not. 😀

PHYTONUTRIENTS
You get everything your body needs, in one simple meal. Diversification of nutrition is one of the keys to being healthy. Each serving packs up to 17g of protein per serving along with whole-food nutrition from some of the most nutrient-dense superfoods on the planet. This combination of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, probiotics, prebiotics, phytonutrients and rare adaptogens is unparalleled. Versus the stuff competitors’ use like heavy fat, artificial flavors, sugars, carbs, (sugars and carbs are very complex and go on many different levels). Sugar is ok in proper portions and natural sources, but if you see no sugar then that is a huge clue that, this company is probably using all kinds of chemical based sweeteners to make it taste good and then market as no sugar. Marketing, Marketing vs. the Real Nutrition our bodies need and desire.

To have Refined Carbohydrates or Not to Have???

Refined Carbs to have or not to have???

There are basically two types of Carbohydrates, un refined (complex) or refined (simple). The simple explanation is that refined carbs are those that get processed and altered with artificial chemicals and sugars, and therefore the nutrients are stripped, meaning either reduced or completely eliminated. Un Refined Carbs are those that are full of fiber, proteins, fats, they are left in their natural state, and beneficial to the body.

Refined carbs include sugary sweetened beverages, fruit juices, pastries, white bread, white pasta, cereals, cakes, sweets period, biscuits, white rice and others. Numerous studies show that refined carbohydrate consumption is associated with health problems like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. With artificial sweeteners this type of carb is addictive and full of empty calories. What do you mean empty, Meaning that refined carbs have little to no nutritional value and are known to be detrimental to the health of your body. They tend to cause major spikes in blood sugar levels, which leads to a crash that can trigger hunger and cravings for more high carb foods, hence the addiction. Which is where we get the “blood sugar roller coaster” that many people are familiar with.
Un Refined Carbohydrates are the ones you want to eat to have production of energy, these also help by maintaining blood sugar levels, so there is no spiking or crashing. This type of Carb also helps by slowing absorption meaning it helps to control your appetite. For this kind of carb you should be eating brown rice, beans, oatmeal, wheat, vegetables, lean meat, barley, lentils, whole grain products.

So if you are like me and crave those carbs, make sure you are making healthy smart choices that will be beneficial to your body. Ask yourself why you are craving this type of food? Is it b/c you have been bingeing lately on junk and your system is trying to tell you there is an addiction forming or are you running low on fuel and need a boost of some good protein, oatmeal or veggies. What ever the reason just be smart and take it one day at a time. 😀
