Meal Replacement for IBS

March 3, 2017

Struggling to lose weight, See Results, Acne Breakouts, Fatigue, Loss of Appetite, Bloated Belly and Low Energy?  These are all signs of IBS and things I personally was struggling with before I started drinking Shakeology daily.  Constipation was something that I struggled with and dealt with for years, until I found a meal replacement shake that provided my body with exactly what it was missing.

My struggles….

I was a busy, on the gal that didn’t have the best eating habits.  I lived on caffeine and sugar and thought if it was low fat, fat free, diet, etc…it was a better choice then the full calorie/fat option.  But the more I learn, the better I get with my nutrition.  I have always been a girl that shares what works for me and I know I am not the only one that struggles with IBS/Constipation.

Duplicate what works….

I am not here to sell you anything, but rather share what works for me and how Shakeology has truly changed my life, energy and impacted my fitness results as well.  I work with many clients that struggle the same way I was. Exercising 5-6 times a week and not getting the results I wanted to achieve.  I had so many friends that improved their nutrition and followed a plan and in return had great results, but I thought I was invisible and that I could out work my not so good nutrition habits with my time at the gym! 😉

Not a shake drinker….

“Nothing changes, if you don’t change” is what kept going through my head.  I wasn’t getting to where I wanted to go because I wasn’t changing my nutrition habits.   I needed simple.  My love for food always got in the way in the past and I never was really a big shake drinker.  I was seeking something easy and yummy that would improve my health and help my results.  Something that I could fit in to my busy life, without overwhelming me.   In doing more research, I found Shakeology.

In the beginning I didn’t want to spend the money to be honest, but in researching it more I found it too good to be true.  70 superfoods, real fruits, veggies, vitamins, minerals and a perfect balance of carbs, fats and protein.  As a Nutritionist, I was sold with what I had researched and found.  Plus it was a 30 day money back guarantee, so I had nothing to lose.

I began drinking it daily for Breakfast, as I was not a breakfast eater prior.  Like I said I need easy and this was just that.  I found my energy improving, digestion improving, clarity, focus and did I mention less sugar cravings!!  I wasn’t trying to lose weight, I needed health, vitality, energy and an improvement in my digestion to help my ibs heal. Needless to say, I did not cancel my second month supply.  I just kept drinking it once a day as a meal replacement.

Improved Energy, Digestion & more….

What I learned is that the quality of the food you eat is far more important than the calories. I was never a shake drinker, but when I committed to trying 30 days of Shakeology, I got better results.  I drink it every single day.  Even when I was pregnant and while nursing my son.  It is my multivitamin daily and his too! 😉

Shakeology serves a different purpose for people of different ages. My friend who struggled with high cholesterol, was able to go off her meds by simply making the choice to drink Shakeology every day. Another friend was pre-diabetic with high blood pressure and was able to control her blood sugars and BP levels to a healthy range with out being on medication for either with drinking Shakeology daily and improving her nutrition.  A lot of you might be pregnant, and in that case I would consult your doctor. Every physician has a different approach but I have several clients, myself included who were able to drink Shakeology while pregnant and nursing.

Cost….

When you break down the cost, Shakeology is about $4 a day. If you combine all the drive thrus, coffee shop runs and extra snacks I was eating before, Shakeology actually is actually the cheaper option!! It’s not an addition to my grocery budget, it’s replacing the crap I was buying and eating before.

Healthier Wife & Mama….

The healing that Shakeology gave my digestion and IBS was incredible.  With Shakeology once a day and drinking 80+ oz of water, my IBS is under control and that right there feels amazing!  For me I wanted to improve my diet, feel better, have more energy and truly needed something simple and easy to begin improving my health and Shakeology did just that for me!  6 years later, I still drink it daily and take it with me on every vacation.  Simple, easy and delicious!  Look at your individual situation. It might start as a weight loss option or a portion control helper, but it can transform into a healthy new lifestyle. You have nothing to lose!!  I am healthier because of Shakeology!
