If I were to explain what Shakeology means to me this is what I would say:
Shakeology was something that I used think was too expensive.  I USED to think that I didn't need a Shake to lose weight.  I used to think that I could do it all on my own.  I CAN do it all on my own but Shakeology makes it CHEAPER (YES TRUST ME) and easier.    I always have really good intentions of packing every bag and snack but lets face it.  Life gets in the way.  We are running late, we oversleep and maybe your kids don't cooperate.  You have no idea how many times I am running out the door thinking, Oh I'll just grab something along the way.  Then inevitably there are NO healthy choices and I'm stuck with crap!  Now my Shakeology is that quick easy MEAL (not a protein shake) that I can grab and go.  It tastes really really good and it is easy to make.  You can fancy it up by blending with fruit and nuts or you can go plain jane and mix with water.  You can shake or blend and you can make it a dessert or a meal! 
 The sky's the limit.  I also love that it is perfectly portion controlled.  
We eat healthy foods but a lot of times we eat too much!  
With Shakeology you get your serving size and you don't have to even think about it! CONVENIENCE right there!!!!

Also, Shakeology has helped me to curb my sweet cravings and has given me natural energy.  Not the kind of energy you get from a red bull but the kind of energy that just keeps you on a steady state of awareness all day long.  It's just down right good stuff! 
It's $4 a day for Shakeology and it's worth every penny.  
If you compare Shakeology to any other healthy meal out there you can't find anything that even comes close to the nutritional value.  


In my opinion it's worth every single penny invested.  I am investing in my health which will affect my family, my health and our future!!!  
Think long term, always invest in your health!!
