Shakeology 5 Reasons NOT to buy Shakeology and why I swear by it.

5 Reasons NOT to buy Shakeology and why I swear by it.

Does the thought of paying money for a protein shake that claims to be good for you ( like all the rest) make your head hurt from all the information that makes no sense because there is so much of it? We are going to make it clear. that’s how we do it here at Makeitrealwellness. we keep it real. Keep reading at the bottom of the page I tell you why I swear by it!

     1) It’s just like any other protein shake

Shakeology has protein in it but it is so much more. Most people drink shakes for the protein but they are not protein deficient, The majority of people are nutrient and mineral deficient. Not protein deficient

Why do you need protein? Protein is made up of amino acids, the body’s primary building blocks. Muscles, bones, skin, internal organs—and much more—are all made of amino acids. What’s more, we’re in a constant state of breaking all these things down and rebuilding them. Long story short, we’re made of protein and therefore we need to consume it to stay healthy. This blend is formulated with a variety of quality protein sources. 

Shakeology uses Whey, Pea, Sacha Inchi, Chia, Flax, Quinoa. 16 Grams

Make sure your protein is from a quality plant or animal source free from hormones and pesticides and if it’s a shake, that it does NOT include SOY, artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.

Shakeology is made up of whole Superfoods That are grown in nutrient-rich soil.  70 ingredients to be specific. Food that is high in nutrients but relatively low in calories. Nutrient-dense foods contain vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats. Examples of nutrient-dense foods include fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat or fat-free milk products, seafood, lean meats, eggs, peas, beans, and nuts.

according to, SUPERFOODS are:

Nutrient powerhouses that pack large doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals. Eating them may reduce the risk of chronic disease, and prolong life, and people who eat more of them are healthier and thinner than those who don’t.

These nutrients are

  • Protein & Amino Acids
  • Antioxidants & Super-fruits
  • Phytonutrients & Super-greens
  • Adaptogens Herbs
  • Prebiotics & Probiotics
  • Digestive Enzymes

So the Synthetic One-A-Day vitamins aren’t going to cut it. Your body will absorb vitamins best from real, whole foods.


2) There is no clinical research.

Shakeology is studied under controlled conditions at Medicus Research, one of the nation’s leading organizations specializing in clinical trials for natural health products conducted a study on Shakeology.

For this Independent Clinical Study of Shakeology, the following was accounted for during the 90 Day study:

  • There was no change in diet. (They ate how they normally do.)
  • There was no change in exercise. (If they exercised already, they continued. If they didn’t exercise, they continued NOT to exercise.)
  • They drank Shakeology for breakfast and lunch.

What were the results of the Clinical Study of Shakeology? … Here are the benefits of Shakeology according to the study:

  • Weight Loss
  • Lowered Cholesterol
  • Lowered Blood Sugar


Rest assured there have been studies. Look at these results!


3) Shakeology is expensive

It used to seem like a lot of money to me as well. But I had to stop and consider what I spent on a healthy lunch or breakfast and that used to cost me about 4-7 dollars a day for a normal workweek. And I also considered what it would cost to buy all the healthy ingredients to mix my own healthy shake. and couldn’t even come close So I considered it to be a meal replacement and took it out of my grocery money budget. Meaning I had my Healthy superfood meals for the month already taken care of.

Watch this truthful clip with Tony Horton

I have learned that you can’t just look at cost when you are comparing. you must compare what you are getting. And you can’t find another product out there that has all that Shakeology has and tastes as good as it does. My mother in law who is a very healthy eater once told me that ” you can pay for it now in healthy food choices, or you can pay for it later in medical bills.”  That stuck with me! If you would like to try before you buy we have a trial size package both in Regular and in Vegan. 

The cost is only 24.95. Then you will know what your perfect flavor is.

4) It upsets my stomach.

Do you have trouble processing certain foods? Shakeology uses 70 different ingredients that are not native to the US so your body may need to adjust to those foods. Eat something small beforehand like when you are taking a vitamin in the morning on an empty stomach

it may take some time for your body to adjust to all the nutrients. start with 1/2 scoop or mix it with nut milk, but know that you are not alone and it does not always happen,

I was having issues with my stomach before I started drinking shakeology. I was always constipated. After I started drinking this was no longer a problem.

You see shakeology cleans out the toxins that are in your body causing inflammation ( which is the beginning of all diseases ) like diabetes, cancer, high cholesterol.

Once cleaned out you can start absorbing all the nutrients.

5) Shakeology doesn’t help you lose weight.

Actually . because your normal thought when you want  to lose weight is to take foods out of your diet,( cut calories) you figure if you want to lose weight you eat less, when in fact what you are loosing is your nutrients as well,

Br drinking Shakeology you’re keeping your calories low, (160) and your nutrients high.

Thus helping you lose the extra weight.
This stuff is no joke legit good for you stuff.   I was not a believer until I was drinking the shake for a few months and went to the Dr. My cholesterol was down, and my stomach issues were gone and I finally broke my plateau and started getting results from my workout.

I have given you all the reasons I have heard and said myself before trying Shakeology,

Now I’m gonna tell you why I swear by it.

For years I have had issues with my stomach, Both with constipation as well as processing my food correctly. I was in pain and that alone was bad enough for me,

I tried Pills, fiber drinks, kombucha, I tried cantaloupe and eating food that I knew would upset my stomach so that I could go to the bathroom. I don’t know if you have ever had that problem before but its no fun. I was bloated all the time and that made me crazy because my stomach would never be flat to show my abs.

Once I tried Shakeology I was free from this, Free to go to the bathroom when needed. That along with the energy that I now have because my body functions properly are all the proof I needed.

Try yours today.
