Shakeology - Why Everyone Should Be Drinking This Shake?
Is Shakeology a luxury or a necessity? I sometimes hear that people think Shakeology is a luxury item and therefore, too expensive to purchase. It makes me wonder if that really is the case? Or should one think outside the box? Let’s take a look.
The cost of Shakeology on home direct (you get free shipping) is $119.99 plus tax. A one-month supply breaks down to around $4/serving. When you are using it as a meal replacement to lose weight that means that your meal costs $4. Ok, so let’s look at that number.
What does it cost to eat at a restaurant and at home? A fast food meal on average is $5…more if super-sized. A meal in a sit-down restaurant is on average of $10 or higher. A home-cooked meal is typically around $4/serving when you have a meat, veggie, and carb. Ok…sooooo a home-cooked meal may rival Shakeology regarding cost, but is that truly accurate?
Here is what you’d have to eat to get the same nutrition in a glass of Shakeology:
■4 cups raw broccoli ($3.94)
■7 whole carrots ($1.99)
■10 cups raw cauliflower ($4.30)
■3 cups romaine lettuce ($1.99)
■4 cups uncooked mushrooms ($8.97)
■3 raw onions ($2.91)
■1 cup peas ($1.09)
■4 cups red radishes ($5.16)
■4 cups non-fat yogurt ($3.49)
■1 bowl exotic fruit, including gochi berry and acai berry ($4.40)
■1 shot wheat grass ($1.95)
Multiply that by 30 servings and you are getting $1235.70 worth of food for only $119.95. I’m willing to bet anyone, hands down, that Shakeology beats the fast food, restaurant, or home-cooked meal nutritionally by a landslide.
And what about calories?
Shakeology is 140 cal/serving, plus whatever you add to your shake. A fast food or restaurant meal is 400 cal or more…and I’m being very kind. When you are on a weight-loss plan, this is a major component to take into consideration.
I promise that I’m not trying to talk you into using Shakeology (although I do think it’s the best food item since sliced bread.) I am, however, challenging you to think outside the box when it comes to limiting beliefs about the cost of it. It IS affordable. You would take $120 of your monthly food allowance and direct it to Shakeology. The nutritional benefits that you would receive, in return, would be worth its weight in gold.

You are worth it. Get past the thinking that you aren’t. Think outside the box. I dare you.
