Ok…this is an email that I received from someone this past week…unsolicited. I couldn’t have asked for a better testimonial. Please read on…and if you are intrigued, you can find out more at http://www.myshakeology.com/CoachRochelle.

Wow…. when I tried Shakeology I thought of the other brands of protein powders I’ve tried, and thought, I bet there’s at least 5… just looked back and counted 14! I think that may be all the different brands of protein powder I’ve tried over the last 5 or 6 years. Either the taste is just tolerable (or worse), or after a couple of days the artificial sweeteners (and whatever else) build up enough to make my system really unhappy and me decidedly unsociable. I always ended up wasting protein powder because I’m not going to keep consuming something that bothers my system or tastes bad even if it’s supposed to be good for me (so I can’t even say whether they worked performance/health/nutrition-wise – I couldn’t take them long enough). Looking at the list, you can see I’ve tried many brands that are considered “gold standard”, many other brands too, because someone told me they liked them. The results were always the same, but I kept trying and I kept thinking that maybe the next brand will be The One That Works For Me. But after trying so many, I was really prepared to have to choke Shakeology down, and then cancel my subscription. You remember how hesitant I was, especially now that my financial situation has changed. I should have trusted the Beachbody folks!
I just tried the chocolate Shakeology (8 oz SoDelicious Coconut Milk, 2 big strawberries, 1 scoop Shakeology) and it was HANDS DOWN the best protein shake I have ever consumed!! I wished I made it a little thinner so the bits sticking to the side of the cup would come out faster, and I wished I’d used a big blender instead of a single-serve size blender so I can have more… I just want to drink it all day! Aside from the yum factor… it’s been two days now. I reserved judgement, even though the taste was so awesome… but no unpleasant “side effects” so far.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart… I can now continue to do something I know is good for me without side effects or dreading the taste. And after reading the studies, I can hardly wait to see how much I will feel in a few weeks.
PS One convenient meal a day that I KNOW is good for my health, and keeps me from nibbling all evening at the restaurant, for less than $4 a meal? My health is worth it.”
