You Can’t Afford to NOT drink Shakeology?

September 22nd 2011

The costs.
Lets add it up to see if you can afford to NOT drink Shakeology. I’m not a sales person. Never claimed to be and don’t want to be. I simply share what is working for me and those around me. Very similar to recommending a restaurant, a movie, a microwave, a local business or hair stylist. You recommend what you like. You recommend what you want others to enjoy. You recommend what you would use over and over again. You recommend what works for you.

The breakdown:
Retail price $119 a month

Club Price $109

Coach Price $89 (This is my option and the one 99% of the people choose.)

Obesity in the United States now carries the hefty price tag of $147 billion per year in direct medical costs, just over 9 % of all medical spending.

A normal weight person spends on average $700 a year on prescription drugs. ($60 a month) An obese person spends $1500 a year on prescription drugs. ($125 a month)

“Today’s report demonstrating the clear link between rising rates of obesity and increasing medical costs is alarming, but not unexpected,” Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation said in a statement. “Obesity is the driver of so many chronic conditions — heart disease, diabetes, cancer — that generate the exorbitant costs that are crushing our health-care system,” she said.

2.8 million cancers a year are tied to obesity, diet and lack of exercise.

The average American is now 23 pounds overweight.

You may think this is overwhelming. Where do I begin? You begin with the first step. You order Shakeology and actually drink it every day for 30 days. I’ve been drinking it 10 months. Rarely miss a day.

Shakeology is proven to do the following:

– Reduce cravings

– Lower cholesterol

– Regulate blood sugar

– Lower blood pressure

– Improve digestion

– Lessen joint pain

– Increases energy

– Improves liver function

– Prevents tumor growth

The list goes on and on.

It is not a diet shake. It is not meant to be a weight loss shake. It is a super food meant to help with your overall health and fitness. Weight loss is a by-product of it.

My husband and I began drinking Shakeology in November 2010. Since that time I haven’t been to the doctor due to an illness. I’ve been for a regular check up at around the 6 month mark of drinking it. Passed everything with flying colors. Optimal cholesterol, great blood pressure, and more. I haven’t had a prescription drug or even over the counter drug in almost a year. My husband had one visit to the ER for a root canal infection in December 2010. Since then, zero visits to the doctor due to illness. I went through our medicine cabinet recently and discovered that it is not really a medicine cabinet because we no longer buy or take medicine the way we used to.

How did we do it? We drink Shakeology. We buy it at the coach price so it saves us over $400 a year combined even with coaching fees.

The fact that I feel so much better on a daily basis makes it worth every penny. Heck, I’d pay more now that I know how awesome it is.

The Taste:
Anything new is different. Especially if you have an affinity to munching on potato chips instead of drinking a shake. I’ll ask you these questions: How does having low cholesterol taste? How does having regulated blood sugar taste? How does having more energy taste? How does fitting in your jeans taste? I like the way it tastes so it is not like I gag it down. There are tons of recipe options and a new flavor is coming soon.

I’ve heard feedback of upset stomachs or other side effects. Shakeology is a colon cleaner. If your body is conditioned to unhealthy, processed food then Shakeology will be a huge shock to your system. It will work over time to push out that bad stuff. If this happens I recommend you take ½ serving at breakfast and ½ serving at lunch until you are used to it and how it works in your body. Or just ½ a serving a day for a few days. Give it a chance.

The Doctor:
By all means talk to your doctor. I’m not advising you not to talk to your doctor about anything new. But while you are there also talk to your doctor about the 5 beers you had the other night, and the hot dog you ate last week, and the huge basket of bread at the restaurant you love, the popcorn at the movies, the samples you snacked on at Costco, and the pizza, and the hamburger, and the HCG diet you tried, or…you get the idea. Some people are so willing to shove anything mindlessly into their mouths but when you actually make them think about it they object. I love how people will find any excuse in the book not to try something and the doctor card is very common. I need to ask my doctor. You really trust that doctor that is prescribing 7 medications with multiple side effects to recommend or not recommend this product? They know nothing about it. I have tons of research from the creators and from independent studies. I’m not handing you something illegal or something unhealthy. It is a shake full of super foods. Hopefully you give it enough of a chance to improve your health.

The Change:
It is not a lose 30 pounds in 30 days scam. It is part of a lifestyle change. There is the rub. It is not a diet it is a lifestyle change. If you want to sit on the couch and shove pizza in your mouth, not work out, and not feed your body good food then you will continue to be sick and spend hundreds or thousands on healthcare. You may even die 10 to 20 years sooner than you expect. Drop 10% of your body weight and you reduce your risk of heard disease and type 2 diabetes by 50%. You must commit to drinking a shake at least once a day and you will change your health. Change occurs when the pain of staying the same becomes too great. Are you willing to change? Are you willing to give something new a chance? If not then I ask you this; how is your current plan working for you?

The Price:
Adding anything new to your current budget can be challenging. I understand. There were times when I contemplating canceling cable so I could make my budget work. There are ways to make your money back and break even. It naturally happens when you enjoy Shakeology. You want to share it with everyone and they want what you have. Coaching is a great opportunity to help your own health and spread health to others. You don’t have to be a coach to drink Shakeology. It is just a great way to save money. I’d ask you these questions: Is paying $89 to $120 a month worth not going to the doctor? Is the fee worth not suffering from IBS? Is the fee worth not suffering from Fibromyalgia? Is the fee worth not paying over $700 to $1500 a year on prescriptions? Is the fee worth getting healthy and keeping medical costs down? You can try is risk free for 30 days. You can drink the entire bag in a month and return it if it hasn’t changed your health. So far I have not experienced anyone return a bag of Shakeology if they committed to drinking it daily.

Buy it through me or through the Beachbody coach you know. You don’t know what you don’t know. Now you know!
