Shakeology Scam???

Ok, I try to avoid posting about things that are debatable because, well, I could be wrong.  Just because you don’t share my opinion on something doesn’t make mine right and your’s wrong.  That being said, I do want to address what is being called the “Shakeology Scam”.  I get asked questions all the time about Shakeology and I wanted to write a post hopefully to address some fears, concerns, and myths that seem to be circling around the internet.

When Shakeology launched, I was first in the skeptics’ line.  I didn’t think there was a Shakeology scam; I just thought two main things: (1) the claims about its’ health benefits seemed outlandish and (2) the price seemed rather high.  I mean, how could they really cram all that vegetables stuff in one drink???  Seemed ludicrously impossible to me.  I had (and continue to have) an enormous amount of faith in Beachbody and their products, but I, like many others, had serious doubts.  Having been torched by other products and marketing scams in the past, it is hard to avoid being a doubter in today’s world.Shakeology Veggie Bowl

Regardless of my doubts, I was willing to give it a chance because I wanted to base my opinion on my own experiences; not some Shakeology success stories, corporate propaganda, or unscrupulous people just looking to make a buck.  Plus, if I was going to promote this product, well, I had better be a user.  Few things are worse than a liar who is also a hypocrite.  Excited and ready to prove that my misgivings were correct (because we all know how much fun it is to be right!), I started a three-month trial period using Shakeology for either breakfast or as my own modified recovery drink.  (As a competitive triathlete and exercise junkie, I had little to no interest in losing weight.  I wanted to know if I would feel any different; would I experience any of the feelings claimed by the success stories.)

At first, my opinions remained the same.  “Just another overhyped protein drink” and “Waste of money” were my usual thoughts, I have to admit.  Shakeology scam? Sure seems like it.  But, I am not a quitter and continued.  Given the volume of my training and my meticulous nature, I was surprised to see improvements in some of my standard workouts.  Not only was I feeling better, but I was seeing positive changes in my training.  Interesting I thought, but there are simply so many variables affecting how you feel and Shakeology is just one.

That to me is a big statement.  Yes, I am a Beachbody Coach and yes, I sell Shakeology.  But, I am also a consistent daily user (for years now).  Not only that, my wife has it everyday for breakfast.  (She actually got mad at me when I changed our auto-ship from Chocolate to the new Tropical Strawberry.  Ummm, I changed it back.)  I have many, many clients who have all made significant improvements in their fitness and health using it.  Do I attribute all the improvements to Shakeology?  Of course not.  It, like many other products, is one tool that they use.  I happen to think it is not only an amazing tool but also the best tool of that type ever created.  I even give it to my kids periodically.  Anybody that knows me knows I love my kids more than anything.  If I am willing to give Shakeology to them, well, that’s the best Shakeology Scam debunking argument I can offer.

If you think all of this is some trick or whatever to convince you yet you remain skeptical, that’s fine.  Ask me your questions.  Post your reservations.  Heck, call me direct if you want.  Just because I believe in Shakeology doesn’t guarantee it is right for you.  But, I’d love to have the chance to help you find out!

It is Decision Time…

Well, that’s all I can offer.  I obviously think it is worth every penny and would highly recommend you try it for yourself, especially with Beachbody’s “Bottom of the Bag Guarantee”.  You can literally return an OPENED and EMPTY bag of Shakeology for any reason, as long as it is within 30 days of your purchase for a FULL refund (less shipping and handling).  So, you have nothing to lose and a ton to gain!

Shakeology can truly help anyone.  Whether you are looking to lose weight, have more energy, or just ensure you get all the vitamins, minerals, and other healthy stuff I can’t pronounce each day that we all need to stay healthy and fit, Shakeology is for you.  It can help you:

  • lose weight
  • reduce your food cravings
  • increase your energy levels and stamina
  • improve your digestion and regularity (I know, TMI, but it is important), and
  • It has been proven to help lower cholesterol (an independent agency studied this).

Well, that’s all I have to say about the so-called “Shakeology Scam”.  Thanks for reading and, if you found this helpful, please hit “Like” or “Tweet” below to share!  :)
