Like most things in life, there are many common misconceptions associated with the Shakeology shakes from Beachbody. Some people believe they’re just like any other shake, whereas others don’t think it will do as it says. As an avid Shakeology drinker, I wanted to take the time to address – and debunk some of the most common Shakeology myths.
It’s not a fitness shake for all lifestyles
This Shakeology myth couldn’t be any more untrue. Shakeology has several different versions to ensure a nutrient dense shake for everyone – regardless of their lifestyle. Even if you’re vegan, there’s a Vegan Shakeology version. You just have to look at the different types of Shakeology available to find the one that suits your needs the most.
It’s just a protein shake
With so many protein shakes lining the shelves of every health and fitness store out there, it can be hard to narrow in on the ones that are the best. And let me tell you, the best ones aren’t just protein shakes.
Shakeology is a fitness shake. What this means is that it’s a nutrient-dense drink that contains superfoods to give you the whole food nutrition you need to thrive throughout the day – and throughout your workouts. So, you get all of your protein requirements as well as your nutrient requirements which allows you to maximize your results.
Protein Shakes are just fillers and extracts
While it’s true that some protein shakes out there could very well just be fillers and extracts, the same can’t be said about Beachbody’s Shakeology. We get into this a bit more in the next myth debunk, but Shakeology is formulated to give you the higher amount of nutrition possible without all the junk. It’s a fitness shake full of everything you actually need.
All you need for ultimate health and fitness is carbs, fats, and proteins
As disease and illness continue to be on the rise as a result of all the chemicals and toxins found in foods, it’s important to take a natural approach to your diet and fitness shakes. While you do need carbs, fats, and proteins, not all fitness drinks are created equally. With Shakeology, you get everything you need with no added colors, soy, artificial stimulants, flavors or sweeteners. So, it’s not just a fitness drink but rather, a health shake.
Shakeology is for weight loss and nothing more
If Shakeology was only a protein shake, this myth might be true. However, since it’s a health and fitness drink, it’s for everyone regardless of their health and fitness goals. As long as you want to maximize your results by infusing your body with the right nutrients it needs to develop muscle, heal and repair your body.
Shakeology can certainly be used for weight loss as it’s a healthy meal replacement that will stop cravings and make you feel full for longer, that’s not it’s only purpose.
If you’re ready to reach your ultimate potential and health and fitness, you have to try a Shakeology fitness shake. Explore the different kinds of Shakeology to find one that suits your needs and health and fitness goals.
