I’ve been inspired and I’m going to follow that inspiration. My team is absolutely CRUSHING their goals! People are dropping pounds and inches left and right. Mommas are still pushing play even when they have babes who don’t sleep through the night. People are FEELING better than they have in YEARS! Some are off their medication for the first time in years…blood pressure is dropping, resting heart rate is dropping, chronic high blood sugar is being reversed. I’m telling you, LIVES ARE CHANGING!
Did you know in 2014, Beachbody paid for a third party clinical trial to be done on Shakeology? An actual science based, controlled study on the effects Shakeology alone had on participants. This study consisted of 50 participants who were selected after a rigorous selection process. The requirements? To drink Shakeology twice a day for 90 days. That’s it. No change in diet, no change in exercise.
The RESULTS? AMAZING!
Turns out, when participants drank Shakeology for breakfast they had a significant reduction in the desire to eat lunch. Over the course of 90 days participants lost an average of 9.3 pounds, with the highest weight loss coming in at 24 pounds. WOW—losing that much weight in 90 days is quite impressive!
Another interesting fact about the results is that participants continued to lose weight throughout the entire study. This shows that the continuous use of Shakeology resulted in the healthy type of weight loss—slow and steady. And those are the kind of results that are sustainable for the long haul.
In addition to lowering the digits on the scale, another very important number that shrunk was participants’ cholesterol. The average total cholesterol reduction was 7% with the maximum reduction being 50%.
Lowered blood sugar.
The study also monitored participants’ blood sugar levels. And rather than testing just a single day’s blood sugar (which can vary based on what you ate that day or even the day before) the study evaluated the average blood sugar for each day over the 3-month period (also known as HbA1c). Turns out, participants reduced their blood sugar (HbA1c) by an average of 5% while some reduced their numbers by up to 19%. And keeping your blood sugar levels steady is important in helping reduce the risk of diabetes.

For those of you interested in the science/medical opinion of these superfoods, you should check out “100 Doctor’s Don’t Lie”, where 100 medical doctor’s were interviewed about their personal opinion of Shakeology. Pretty fascinating! www.youtube.com/watch?v=dg1AaAbQ3J4
So, in light of my team inspiring me with their results…in light of this amazing study, I’ve decided to do a smaller shorter version and conduct my own test group. Here are the details:
DATES: July 1- July 14th- 2 week duration
TEST GROUP REQUIREMENTS: No change to nutrition or exercise necessary. Drink 2 Shakeology shakes each day. These can be used as meal replacements or snack replacements.
ACCOUNTABILITY: I can’t watch you drink your Shakeology every day, so instead we’ll use the Challenge Tracker App as well as a private FB group where you will log BOTH Shakeology drinks each day. You can use these groups to also ask questions along the way.
SUPPORT: If you participate in this group, you will receive daily health tips, recipes, and encouragement from me to keep you on track and support you through these 14 days. We will also have a weekly call available to call and ask questions.
TRACKING: You will be required to take the following measurements before and after the test group:
- Full body photo in exercise clothes
- Blood pressure
- Resting pulse
- Waist circumference
- Fasting Blood Sugar * Optional
- Complete a health survey addressing digestion, energy, hormone balance, drive, and stress levels.
If this is something that interests you, please email me ASAP (TheHealthPatriot@gmail.com) so we can get you registered, added to the group and plugged in. If you are not a current member of our team or if you’re an inactive member and need to order your Shakeology, the last day to register or place your order is JUNE 24th! You won’t get your Shakeology in time if you order after that date.
