He is early in his transformation but, we have already come so far and we knew that we could help other people do the same thing. We love trying new Shakeology recipes and look forward each day to another shake. Shakeology is definitely helping us to regain our health, lose weight, and tighten & tone. My husband has his shake first thing in the morning for his wake up call, but I generally have mine post workout. It is my incentive after a hard workout. Currently, I am on the Eating Clean stripped plan so I'm mixing it with water and it tastes just as good that way too!

What can Shakeology do for you?
It is an effective way to help you lose weight, increase your energy and be the healthiest you can possibly be. Shakeology can help you reduce cravings and promote healthy digestion and regularity. Shakeology recomends that you replace one meal per day with a shake along with regular exercise and a balanced diet, participants who did this experienced remarkable health improvements. It can reduce your total cholesterol, reduce LDL cholesterol, reduce cardiovascular risk, and reduce oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
How to use it...It's very simple.
Mix 1 scoop of Shakeology with 8 oz. of water. If you like, add ice. Or if you want something more filling and maybe even more satisfying, blend your Shakeology with ice and nonfat, almond, rice, or soy milk. Shakeology dissolves easily, but blending it will give it a thicker, creamier texture. Honestly, when I make my shakeology I always add more than 8 ounces because I think it's too thick! The more liquid you add the thinner it gets!!:)
