Starting Shakeology was one of those "Why not" moments for me. My sister-in-law had been drinking it and she said it has helped her digestive system a lot. She knew I had trouble in that arena (sorry, TMI). I figured, well, I could try it out and if I didn't like it, I can always return it. I bought it with the Piyo Challenge Pack and began drinking it everyday. If you're like me and you don't drink diet soda, the first thing I tasted was the stevia. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to handle the taste. I will say after a while, I got use to it and it's not a big deal anymore.
I didn't feel an immediate change, as some do, but I did feel more energy over time. I just wasn't sure if it can be attributed to the shake (though now looking back, I HAD been working out regularly prior to drinking the shake and did not feel I had the same energy as I did once I started with the shake). What sealed the deal for me was when my husband left for a week long business trip again. In the past when he left, I'd feel super tired by the end of my work day. Driving home from work was scary as I'd fight nodding off on the road. Waking up earlier than normal made me bleary-eyed and unable to think clearly at work. That week he was gone, I noticed that even with less sleep, while my eyes may have been tired, my brain was fired up and ready to go. I didn't get that afternoon slump, and my commute home with the kids was definitely easier to handle since I had more energy. And to top it all off, the shake helped me stay regular. Win win!
I've been able to lose 10 lbs I didn't know I could lose, and I've been able to maintain my weight. I drink it everyday for breakfast.

What can Shakeology do for you?
I love Shakeology because I am a busy parent and it is a quick way to get my daily dose of vitamins, but have it taste like dessert. It supplies me with the energy I need to help keep up with work and my kids. It is also easier to make and tastier than a salad, and it is an excellent way to eat healthy when eating a full meal is not possible. If you don't like eating fruits and vegetables then this is a great way to get all the benefits of eating a full bowl of fruits and vegetables without having to actually eat them. If you have high cholesterol then this may help you lower total and LDL as well.
