I have been getting a lot of questions about Shakeology recently since I am known to be a frugal person and at first glance it seems pricey. I have had people asking why its so much more than other protein drinks? Is it worth the money? Am I seeing health benefits?
I will be honest, I had all those same concerns myself! It took me 8 months to even try it. I am not a fan of meal replacement shakes. I like hot food, so it didn't appeal to me that way. I started drinking it because as I learned more about nutrition I realized how very little nutritional value we actually get from our food these days. It's scary! And as I became more aware, I started looking for answers on how to fill my body with the nutrients it needs. Shakeology ended up being the answer for me. If you haven't looked over the ingredients in Shakeology, you should! Compare them to whatever shake you are already drinking and weight the difference. It becomes evident very quickly why it's more expensive!
With that said, it costs me less than $4 per serving everyday. Before I was doing the 21 Day Fix, I spent $2 a day on redbull without batting any eyelash and let's be honest, how often do we go out to eat which costs a lot more than $4 a day. Yes, I had to cut out some expenses to fit it in the budget but it came down to priorities. My perspective shifted from consuming what I felt like eating to consuming what I needed to fuel my body.
As a bonus, I got to quit taking a multi vitamin, and between 2 and 4 pm, when I start craving something sweet, I get a nutritious meal instead of refined sugary sweets. It also helps curb my cravings and keeps me on the straight and narrow with my nutrition plan.
The 21 Day Fix is not a quick fix, it's for people looking to make a lifestyle change and in this day and age of fast food and instant gratification that's pretty revolutionary! We are in need radical change. Are you ready?
