Bottoms up!! Today is Shakeology's 6th Birthday!!!!! In honor of that I want to share my story of how I found Shakeology and why I still drink it every day!
I have had Crohn's Disease since I was 14. I have been on and off many different medications, tried many different diets, and nothing seemed to alleviate my symptoms. Lacking energy and getting proper nutrients was a huge issue for me. My body just absorb nutrients and I felt depleted.
In 2012 I had just had my first baby. I was flaring with my disease and had baby weight to lose. So I started to search for something to help. I had already started taking care of my weight issue with exercise and tracking calories. I searched out ️️Shakeology info in hopes that it might be something that would help with my Crohn's. I was excited about what I found, but the price was just too much for us to handle. So I ignored it for a few months.
In fall 2012 a friend approached me about doing a Beachbody challenge group. My baby weight hasn't budged much with the calorie tracking- so a workout program and ️️Shakeology sounded like something that would help for sure. And I was dying to try the shakes to see if they help of my Crohn's. So I took a leap of faith and made it work with our budget.
One month later I had lost 10 pounds and my Crohn's symptoms were lessening. I was so excited about the energy I felt and the fact that I didn't feel depleted anymore. I actually felt like I was getting nutrients! It was incredible.
Now just over two years later I am still drinking ️Shakeology every single day, sometimes twice a day. My Crohn's symptoms are manageable and so much more tolerable because of Shakeology. They helped me go medication free for a year so I was able to nurse my second baby med free.
I honestly can't say enough good about this superfood, nutrient dense, life-changing shake! Not only has it helped me regain my health, it has also changed the health of my family. My husband has lost over 30 pounds and regained his strength and motivation. My parents have seen weight loss and improved health screenings. Not to mention the countless clients on our team that have incredible stories with ️Shakeology- helping with chronic migraines, depression, losing over 100lbs, and many stories of helping with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's symptoms!!
Happy birthday Shakeo!!! I'm so grateful I found you when I did. (Cheesy much?! ;) ) Here's to many more years of superfood this nutrition and feeding our bodies with clean, real, nutrients that fuel our bodies to function at their best!!
