Sample Meal Plan & Grocery Shopping List for the 21 Day Fix Program

Buy Shakeology Cheap: 5 Discounts:

Is Beachbody’s Shakeology a Scam?
I am just a bit confused on the meal plans and exercises. The easy expense is coaching fees. If you look at the company that distributes it, they make it clear that their business is partnering with MLMs. Here are just a few Shakeology reviews, many of whom made use of Shakeology Discount 5. It criticizes Shakeology in quite a few places, but gives it an overall thumbs up for ingredient choices. I just gave up my daily cappuccino and it was a good trade! These shakes have erythritol in them, which means they are not Fix-friendly, but I wanted to address this brand because I have recommended them for so long.

But give it a shot! I tried this today for the first time and it was great I was a coffee mate splenda had to have my coffee blonde if that makes sense kinda person I however used a teaspoon of the coconut oil Is that ok or should I use less I didn't add any vanilla to the coffee.

That's SO exciting to hear! I too used to be a splenda girl So exciting you can get off that other stuff now!! I tried this and it just tasted like black coffee, must have done something wrong. Did you blend it?

When I've not had it blended or "frothed" then I notice that it just tastes like black coffee. What I notice is that it really helps to take the bitterness away from the black coffee. It's creamier than just black, but it may take some getting used to too! What's your prep suggestion for iced coffee? I can't do hot coffee, not a fan.

Hi Jill, I would suggest brewing your coffee, chilling it and then making it the same way as listed above! I think it would still be frothy!! I've never done it this way but may give it a try! It wouldn't work unless you're making it like a Frappuccino. You're putting coconut oil into cold coffee, it'll just start to solidify. If you do cooking picture putting melted butter in cold milk-that's what it'll do. Can you only use Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and not the organic type that comes in the jar?

I think the stuff I use is organic. I get the big giant 2 pack from costco! So excited to try this tomorrow morning!! My "coffee" more like half and half and sugar with a touch of coffee is my biggest weakness in my diet. Prior to this week, I put a couple teaspoons of sugar and 3 or 4 Tbsps of half and half. This week I completely cut out any sugar and just did a dash of half and half and its tasted so gross: It would be so much better for me!

Jenna, I'll be honest, it will take time to adjust to this. When I switched to this coffee I had already weaned myself off of 3 splenda in my coffee and lots of cream! I had been off that for about a year before I discovered this mixture. Durning that year I had been adding almond milk to my coffee instead and didn't really like that either. If you need it sweet, try liquid Stevia Honestly, I prefer with no sweetener now vs using Stevia. My hubby has switched to the Stevia though!

Do you make a whole put of coffee and add the mixture or are you adding that amount per cup? You have definitely been the best source of knowledge and encouragement that I have found without a fee.

Thank you for facilitating these conversations that help us make smart choices about fitness and health. I am getting ready to order this now. I am wondering how to know which package is right for me. Do you suggest the Essential, Extreme, Ultimate, etc. Mary thank you for your kind words.

Before you order let's connect. Will you send me a message and we can discuss your goals and needs. Without knowing that it's hard to recommend something to you!! I am attempting this now. I must have disgusting coffee. Because there is nothing I can find to do with it except for creamers. What coffee do you recommend? Rachel, I like my coffee strong. I usually use Starbucks or Peet's Coffee. Maybe a Kirkland brand too! I don't like weak coffee that's for sure!

If you're used to lots of sugar and cream in your coffee, then it WILL take some getting used to! If it's important enough for you to get off of creamers then you're taste buds will adjust! I was at that point where I realized that I was poisoning myself with tons of Splenda and needed to make a change! This comment has been removed by a blog administrator. Hey Julie, my wife just started the 21 day fix today.

Your website is so helpful, thank you! Hi Micah, PB2 is not listed under any of the approved food categories. The videos are not meant to be combined with another program. Again, the creamer is not listed, you would have to check into the nutritonal value on the label for what it exactly contains.

You do not want stuff with added sugars. I am very interested in the 21 day fix but I have a few questions. Is it extremely important to do the videos as well?? I run on the opposite days I am not at the gym. After the 21 days is up, where do you go from there? Start right back over? Thank you so much, your site is so helpful!!! Mi Micah, I would not do both your gym routine and the 21 Day Fix workouts, one or the other. After 21 days of the fix, I have seen people continue the next day picking up where they have left off, take a 1 week break before beginning again, and move onto to a different program entirelym and tnow that the 21 Day Fix Extreme program has been released this is another option.

I can already see the inches coming off. I jave done work outs in the pass. But I would just eye things I would eat. I love this plan because it tell you what to eat and how much to eat. My husband and I have been doing the 21 Day Fix for a few days now and its going well but because of his hectic schedule, sometimes he cant sit down and eat the whole foods we have packed or planned on.

So my first question is, could he use the shakeology twice in one day? I am not sure if there is anything against using the shake more than once a day. Is it bad to not feed your body after your work out? Or do you have any suggestions? Any advise would be appreciated.

Instead, you could try drinking a recovery shake or a fast-digesting protein shake like whey — both will help you recover more quickly, and you can find both on Beachbody. I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any other questions. Keep up the good work!

Hello — just reviewing your site and I have a Q. I am assuming it means weight — but how much weight — in regards to bread wg. Much thanks, Kathi Hodge. Hi Lori, No, the container system is meant to get you eating a balanced diet by ratio. If you did that you would be changing the ratio of macronutrients. The containers are not the same calorie amount either, so you would end up consuming to many or not enough calories. Hi Mara, During the summer I grill both. During the winter, I will pan fry steak on each side for a couple of minutes and then broil in the oven flipping every two minutes until cooked through.

Pork tenderlon during the winter is baked in the oven or slow cooked in the crock pot. Just a quick question…when you say you pan fry your steak and then broil, what are you cooking the meat in?

Do you have to use a container for oil or something? Also, is that the same with the veggies? Should they all be steamed only? Any help you could give would be great: Hi Courtney, I use a cast iron skillet to brown and then broil. I use a tsp of coconut oil to fry in and yes you count it. Veggies can be cooked any way you like them. Hi Maysa, the best time to exercise is whenever you will be most likely to actually exercise and less likely to find an excuse not to.

The best time is when you can most easily make the time to exercise and schedule it into your day. I am not looking to lose weight is this not the right program for me? Hi Kerri, you can do a hybrid program combining the two programs. Results will include overall toning and shaping, as well as increased strength, flexibility, and endurance. There is quite a variety to choose from. I am in the daily caloric range. My question is how do I meet that goal per day with six meals? When I wrote out a sample meal plan for one day, I still did not have enough containers filled as recommended.

Hi Kiara, you just need to eat more than one of select color containers at at your planned meals until you meet your daily requirements. The good news is that you have a couple options.

For example, add one or two fruits or even one fat to your Shakeology to make it not just a red, but a red, a purple or two, and a spoonful. Thanks for all the information!!! I know you said IdealShape is not comparable to Shakeology nutritionally….

But if I was to still use it I have two huge containers left!! Or is there no way to infuse it with this program??? The Fix is designed to get you eating healthy by being strict and consuming only ingredients found on the diet list, so to use something else would not be beneficial to your overall results. What about the Isagenix Lsalean Meal replacement shakes? From what I have read they are very similar to Shakeology so could they be infused with the 21 day fix as a red??

Maybe, yellow and red container, limiting to three times a week. Hi Bethany, Thank you for the time you put into this eating plan. It is such a help! Shakeology uses whey protein, Bodykey uses soy protein.

I would rather drink whey every day. Bodykey also uses stevia. Shaekology uses non-GMO fructose and stevia. The sodium count in Bodykey is mg, while Shakeology is mg — that is a substantial difference. And, Shakeology uses Himalayan salt, which is a naturally harvested salt with its own set of health benefits. Negligible amount, but not a great thing to see on a health food shake.

Shakeology is a true health food shake and contains a huge list of superfoods, which all have their own unqiue health benefits to make you feel better than ever. There are no superfoods in Bodykey, although they have some probiotics in there. I am weird when it comes to daily supplements, so I would definitely opt for Shakeology over Bodykey because I happen to like their ingredient list better.

Bodykey does have a lot of vitamins and minerals on their list, but for me, sugar alcohol as a second ingredient is not very impressive for a so-called healthy, meal replacement shake.

I know from my own experience that Shakeology helps me feel good, recover more quickly, and stay on track — I drink it every morning with my frozen fruit and love it. Then had surgery and just ordered the 21 day fix to get back into working out. What do you suggest? Thanks for your time: Yes, I think using the containers with any program is a wonderful idea.

As for the second round with containers, it is probably a combination of both. In a second round you will be in better shape so you can push harder during the workouts too.

Hi, I am on the calorie plan- started out really well- eating the container amounts of food- losing what I hoped I would. Is it not a good idea to cut out those containers- of course that would put me below for the day- any suggestions would be most appreciated. Slow and steady is the way to keep the weight off for good.

The first week I lost 5 pounds I want to lose 15 and am in the calorie range. Second week and into 3rd have only lost another 2. Would like to know what you would advise? Hi, I would recommend eating the amount of calories that the eating guide says. Eating below calories a day is never recommended as it is not enough calories to support your internal organ to function properly.

I am started 21 day fix and I loved your meal plan. I was just wondering if you had recipes for the food? I have a problem getting my protein in and enjoy the taste and recipes you can do with P28 products!

Ive also seen some recipes that use PB2 which I also have on hand, how would that be counted?? The Fix diet wants you eating certain whole foods for the most part. Will I fail on this diet. I would never have a plate with steamed vegetables on it! Hi Kelly, Corn is not a vegetable it is a complex carbohydrate.

Do you like veggies raw or roasted, there are a lot of vegetables that I do not like steamed, that I enjoy roasted with olive oil. Maybe, this is something you could experiment with. I am wondering about the grey box you have. Are there portions for these things as well? I am unsure about how to incorporate them into their plans. Hi Heather, The grey box is the teaspoon foods from the 21 Day Fix portion approach eating plan. Honey, is that considered a yellow or a teaspoon?

Also how long should we wait between 1st and 2nd or subsequent rounds of the 21 days or can we just continue seamlessly? Ah, this brings to question: When I complete the 21 day fix, if during that time I weigh and lost say 5 lbs, do I have to readjust the calorie fix?

Yes, you would need to adjust your calorie level to your new weight for continued weight loss. Can you tell me how the Almond Breeze Coconut Milk, unsweetened can fit into the diet?

Is it considered a protein or a carb? There are only 45 calories per cup so I am not sure where it would fit in. I see in your blog the question about what color container coconut milk is. Your shopping list shows it in Blue but your responses are Yellow. Hi Tonya, This post should be used as a companion to the eating plan the program comes with. The eating plan goes into much more detail than I could ever cover. The blue is for canned coconut milk. The yellow is for carton, but there is a weekly limit on these.

So if you make your shake with unsweetened almond milk does this count as one yellow carb for the almond milk and one red protein for the shake? How much almond milk counts as a yellow? How can you lose the weight at eating calories at a higher amount than what we have always be taught?

For example 56 yes old and eat calories… Thank you. Hi, If you are consuming between calories a day and burning a day, you would lose about one pound a week. And, you are right, the marketing propaganda has made weight lose a much more complex situation than it should be.

If I am pounds how many calories do I need to burn a day to lose weight? The above comment confused me. Hi Dianna, A calorie deficit a day through diet, ecerise, or diet and exercise to cause about a 1 pound loss of fat over the course of a week. You have to take into account your metabolism and activity level, not only your body weight to create a daily calorie estimate. The program does include the simple equation you need an I will be writing a blog post shortly about it.

I just ordered the program. Based on my weight I will be in the lowest calorie bracket but my husband will be in the highest calorie bracket. Suggestions on how to make food for both of us at the same time with such a big difference in portions for things? Hi Bethany, I have learned a lot from your blog! Just one question though, would I be able to use a little Stevia or raw sugar maybe a teaspoon or so in my morning coffee? THanks for all the info. Im starting the program tomorrow. Wondering if is ok if i work out first thing in the morning then drink the shakeology shake?

In other words is it ok to work out on an empty stomach? I had gastric bypass 15 months ago…94 lbs gone. Can eat whatever I like now,….. BUT, protein for most important nutrition factor.

Will this work for me? I hope this helps! Hi, loving your blog, really informative. Just a couple of questions — when measuring the rice has it been cooked first? And is cows milk semi skimmed allowed and if so what category does it fit in and how many fl oz can you have? Rice is measured out after cooking. I want to try the 21 day fix my only problem is I have had restrictive weight loss surgery and I know I will not be able to eat as many of the containers I am supposed to do you think this program could still work for me?

That being said, Nicole how far out from surgery are you? If you are still within a year out I would suggest that you just stick with the meal plan that your surgeon has given you.

You may do the exercises if you want to purchase this program and getting moving will help you tremendously. Hi, I am planning on starting the 21 day fix postpartum. For example, a recipe would say it is 1 red, 2 green etc. Once it is all mixed together, it would make the portions off, would it not? I ask because I will not have time to be making separate meals for everyone with 2 under age 2!

Hi Nat, most of the recipes will have serving sizes, so a recipe would use say three containers per serving. You would eat your serving size and mark down the containers. In your example, if a recipe used only 1 red and two greens, I would double, triple, etc the recipe so it makes enough to serve your family.

Hope that makes sense. You would count the mustard greens as green and turnip as yellow. I have tried Shakeology and live it and have noticed a difference in my energy and overall health. However , it can get costly so I have been trying Fitmiss Deliight … What are your thoughts? Shakeology also keeps your digestive system regular, which also helps heighten energy levels. I currently do PiYo and I have a shake every morning.

I do 8oz of unsweetened vanilla coconut almond milk and slightly less than one scoop of shakeology. I have the Arbonne shakes and do not want them to go to waste, how does it compare to the Shakeology? I am really interested in the 21 day fix plan. I am in the calorie range. But, I read a comment from you previously that said if you want to lose, eat less…..

I am trying to lose weight so should I down to the next level of calorie range? I do workout daily if that makes a difference. Hi Christina, I rephrased my previous comment, that was not my intent for it to be taken that way. You are good at the calorie range for weight loss. The diet plan goes into more depth about the cxlore ranges for different goals. While looking at the different information available online about calorie intake, I noticed that my target caloric intake is over calories higher than calories a day.

Am I going to feel starved out on this program? Is there anyway to adjust the calories a day? HI Aj, If you calorie target to maintain your current body weight is calories, calories would be a good starting place for weight loss. And, yes you can adjust the number of calories once you get a feel for the program. But, first it would best to use the program as it is designed before tweaking it to meet your needs. I understand that shakeo counts as a protein but should one use the protein grams on the back of the bag?

Or is shakeo already counted as a red? Hi Dee, a scoop counts as a red container. You are right a scoop would not fit in a red, but that is what it is counted as. Just one of those things. So much great info! Hi Jennifer, that is tough. But you can make it work. Here are a few ideas. Try not to eat large meals on the nights you work, keep healthy snacks handy if possible, prepare what you are going to eat before your shifts start, go light on carbs and higher in protein and healthy fats.

And, be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water through out the night. Hi Sky, it is going to be hard to follow without the containers or workouts. But, do your best, stick to a whole food diet and you will be headed in the right direction. I have purchased the 21 day fix with shakeology. I work 12 hour shifts,making a fully balanced meal plan a bit difficult.

Are there any suggestions to bes divide up the 5 meals throughout my day? Hi Cyndi, You use the containers tp portion your meals or snacks. Protein is red, berries are purple. Hi Joann, It will work, you just need to stick with it and if you have to make adjustments until it does work. Hi Sarah, your results will be different. But, I mean if you eat a piece of cake everyday durring the program your results would be different too. I have a question about family meals.

I stay home with my 2 young boys and want them eating healthier, but I have no idea where to start as far as caloric intake, portions with them, etc. Is there a resource you know of that has reliable information for how to calculate their daily needs? Do you think I need to be as strict with them as far as portion sizes? Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Meghan, You should not have to restrict the portions. Hi I just ordered 21 day fix. Unfortunately Shakeology is very expensive but I do have a nutribullet and make my own kale shakes will that work for the moment? If not what can I use? You will have to break down the ingredients in the kale shake down to what they would count as in the containers.

Going to try the 21 Day Fx Challenge Pack glad to here the pack contains Shakeology too, looking forward to posting back here on my results. Particularly referring to ingredients and the expense. Just a suggestion I have really. Why not point out that when u order the challenge pack it includes the Shakeology? I mean a bag of Shakeology costs almost the same. I only say this because I balked at the price too, til my coach made the above suggestion.

Even my joints feel better!! Hi Danielle, Glad to hear Shakeology is working so well for you, I got my botfriend to start drinking it too and he said the same thing as you, that his joints felt better and were not cracking as much. With the different colour containers and foods for each container, do you decide on what to eat for each meal? Basically you create you own recipe?

Hi Danielle, Yes the 21 Say Fix is flexible in that it wants you to be able to eat what you enjoy. So you get to be creative, and it does come with a fex basic recipes to get you going.

Hi Kathy, black coffee is best. Splenda is artificial sweetener and is not recommended. A tsp of organic coconut oil is what I recommend to people. I would just need some clarification on the serving for this program…. Great website— thank you. Hi Rose, yes it is a cooked cup, so half a yellow dry, will come out to a full yellow when cooked. I start the program on Monday October 13 and I purchased shakeology but the individual bags does that count as one scoop like if I would have the container??

Hi Gaby, yes the individual bag servings are a red container. To get a little more bang for your buck you could order a day bag and seperate out servings into your own plastic bags. Hello- looking at your shopping list. Hi Kimberly, whole grain cereals only.

You can usually find these in the health food section at your grocery store. Hi Tania, after doing some research on Optifast, I would strongly advise against drinking it. It not only has two different sugars listed in the top three ingredients, it also has a lot of chemicals you should not be putting into your body…especially every day for breakfast.

If you do want want to purchase Shakeology, just buy a pure whey protein powder and add in some fruit to your daily shake. Im thinking of trying the 21 day fix. I have been doing some research. Also, im thinking about doing different cardio classes throughout the week instead of doing her workouts.

What do you think Bethany. Hi Pam, Shakeology and idealShape are different in ingredients. You do not have to followe her workouts to follow the portion control eating plan.

One being I hate Greek yogurt, so what do you do about the foods suggested that I hate? How about exercise, does the exercise I do on my own power walking three miles a day count as exercise? Or does it have to be her exercises only. Does my calorie intake go up if I exercise more or less? Can I eat what I make for my family or do I have to eat differently? Also, I hate artificially sweetners refuse to put into my body, what to do about that. Thanks for your time in advance. Hi Victoria, you do not have to eat greek yogurt, that is just a sample of what I would normally eat.

I would suggest not eating the foods you hate and opt for a foods in that category that you enjoy. Power walking is exercise. You might not have the same results if you only did the walking as the 21 Day Fix is cardio and strength training. Calorie intake depends on your goals, if you want to lose weight you eat what the 21 Day Fix program recommends for containers, maintain or gain eat more, the guide book that comes with the program contains all of this information.

The whole family should be able to eat foods from the 21 Day Fix eating plan. What exactly is shakeology? Is their protein in it? I want to try the 21 day fix, however I would complete my workout first thing in the am, so should I have a protein right after? Hi Michelle, if you search Shakeology on my sidebar, you will get a few blog posts all about it.

But, yes it contains protein. I use it as a meal replacement for breakfast during the week. And, I do think everyone should get in some protein post workout, especially after workouts that are strength based. I have type 1 diabetes and this is the only balanced program out there that helps me to be very aware of the portions as I try to lose weight. I gained a lot of weight after major surgeries on my feet and because I couldnt move, I gained. I use an insulin pump and this program is very carb couner friendly because of the portion sizes you can easily figure out the carbs to take a dose of insulin.

I did a lot of research on this diet before I purchased it— definitely a great diet for people with BOTh types of diabetes. Do you know how greek yogurt with fruit counts? Hi Amy, Greek yogurt with added fruit is not allowed. I just wanted to say Thank You for all the good info on the 21 Day Fix. I am awaiting shipment of my 21 day fix. Hello, A friend and I are going to start the 21 day fix and could not be more excited. However neither of us can afford to order the shakeology. I looked into alternatives and one of them was Garden of Life Raw organic protein.

Will this have the same affect of shakeology? Hi Ashley, the ingredients are not the same. Also, nutritionally Shakeology looks to be way ahead of the Garden of Life, probably why you see the differance in price.

This seems to be more of a protein shake then a total meal replacement. Whole foods are always going to be best. I like to describe Shakeology as the missing link that fills in nutrtional gaps, but it is never going to make up for a poor diet. In the end, Shakeology like the Garden of Life are supplements to your diet, not necessities.

Hi Bethany — is it ok to move down a calorie level while on the plan? Hi Beverly, no absolutely do not move down levels. If you drop calories to low your body may go into starvation mode and instead of dropping weight your body will actually store body fat as a survival mechanism.

Plus, in the long term the best way to lose and keep weight off is slow and steady. I just started the day fix and I really like it so far. I ordered the chocolate Shakeology but it seems to be really not agreeing with my stomach. Can I exchange it for the vegan? HI Patricia, the return policy is days. All information is on the receopt that canme with your order. My caloric intake is off the chart so I round down to Along with portions, my real problem is what and when I eat.

What is the problem with not eating all the food? According to the calculations my calorie intake should only be Do I need to limit the amount of containers that I eat being that the grid starts on a calorie intake? Hi Julie, no you need to round up to calories. Consuming less calories for an extended amount of time can cause damage to internal organs. I understand that other protein powder does not have the same nutritional value and does not come close.

However can it be used as a red? I am just wondering because I can not afford shakeology right now but need a quick and easy meal for breakfast.

Hi Kathryn, yes a protein shake is red. Having a shake for breakfast to replace a meal, you want to look for a shake that contains protein sources from a couple different sources and be sure to mix or have something else to eat too, as a single protein shake will not keep you full for very long.

It sounds gross but its really good.. Precut your fruit and you can grab ad go. Its a fast one. GNC makes a pre-bottled protein shake called Lean Shake You need to be careful with these ready made drinks as they are often high in sugars and use lower quality protein sources.

When I get a scoop of shakeology the scoop itself counts as one red, correct? Then anything I add in such as milk, berries, etc would just correspond to the colors they fit with right? I also want to know can shakeology just be made with water as a snack, and if so is it still a whole scoop or half?

Hi Andi, Shakeology by itself is a red container. I would consider it a snack if you made it with just plain water, it would be a whole scoop of Shakeology that you would use. If you did mix in other foods you would count the corresponding food containers. Hope that helps, Bethany. Straight out of the 21 day fix book is a recipe that states the recipe of the Almond Paradise Shakeology drink as 4 fluid oz of unsweetened almond milk, 4 fluid oz of water, 1 tsp all natural almond butter, 1 scoop of strawberry or tropical strawberry vegan shakeology, and ice 8 oz glass of ice.

Blended together is one red, one yellow and one teaspoon. So you can be creative but you just have to account for what you intake. If she is doing 8 oz she does count it as a yellow. I love Shakeology but today a friend is taking me to a new Herbalife Shake shop. Would I count the shake as a red container? Hi Tonya, looking at the harbalife shake nutrtion profile, it looks like you would need to drink two shakes and even then you are not getting the same amount of nutrtition.

It looks like these shake also contain fructose and dextrose, two fast acting carb sources. It would be best drink something like this immediatley aftrer your workout. Most people get their recommended iodine from iodized table salt.

How would a person compensate for that? The diet is pretty restrictive on iodine rich foods such as dairy products. Seafood, dairy foods that are not processed can get you the daily amount of iodine the body needs. If you are overly concerned, you might want to take a look at a mulitivitamin that contains iodine. I did look into the multivitamin option. Unfortunately, only a little less than half of the multivitamins out there actually contain the recommended dose of iodine.

This is important to me because I suffer from hypothyroidism. Digestive enzymes are critical for optimal health. A lack of digestive enzymes leads to undigested food, which in turn gives rise to toxin production in the intestinal tract leading to toxic overload and leaky gut. Digestive enzymes, however, are very difficult to get naturally.

Even if you ate your fruits and vegetables raw, there would be a very low amount of enzymes. And cooked food has close to Zero active enzymes. The labor force of the body that digests, absorbs, allows for signals to be sent, creates new blood cells, etc. You would be shocked at how starved your body has been for enzyme support. Although I went into pretty good detail above with the Shakeology ingredients, some people might still need some more details for allergy reasons or just to know.

Below are the Shakeology Nutrition Facts of each individual Shakeology flavor so that you can take a closer look for yourself. Yet, what is Gluten to begin with? After all, many people are advising to stay clear from it.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Gluten also shows up in many whole grain foods related to wheat, including bulgur, farro, kamut, spelt, and triticale a hybrid of wheat and rye. Some celiac disease experts warn patients to steer clear of oats, as well. The first thing to make a note of is that Gluten is a protein. Nothing is said about weight loss or health… Instead, Gluten should be avoided by those with celiac disease because of their inability to digest the protein.

Then there some people who choose to live a Gluten Free lifestyle who also wanted to know: Shakeology is not certified gluten free. Although Shakeology is made with gluten-free ingredients , all Shakeology formulas are in a manufacturing facility that also processes known allergens such as soy, milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts and wheat gluten ingredients. Additionally, the Shakeology ingredients includes the following grasses, which are known to have gluten:.

Shakeology formulations do not contain grass seeds. The grasses found in Shakeology barley, wheat, kamut, oat are harvested prior to the seed grain developing. If there is any concern around allergic reaction, it is best to consult your physician prior to drinking Shakeology.

Is Shakeology Gluten Free? We can read all the Shakeology reviews we want, but what kind of results are people really getting when Shakeology is studied under controlled conditions? For this Independent Clinical Study of Shakeology, the following was accounted for during the 90 Day study: What were the results of the Clinical Study of Shakeology? On average, Shakeology drinkers lost nearly 10lbs after 90 days and the highest weight loss being at 24 pounds.

Best of all, people continued to lose weight throughout the course of the study which gives a nice and steady healthy weight loss. Finally, Medicus took a look into the blood sugar of the participants… Instead of testing a single days blood sugar, which can differ based on what you ate today or what you ate yesterday, the hemoglobin HbA1c looks at their average sugar over 3 months.

Imagine the kind of results you could achieve if you started eating healthier and exercising while also drinking Shakeology. We already saw from the Clinical Trials of Shakeology that Shakeology does help with weight loss. Feel free to flip through the Shakeology reviews below:.

Why are whole food ingredients better for your health? Ingredients that have very powerful antioxidant and adaptogen abilities like acai berry, Camu-Camu, maca root, and Sacha Inchi. Darin Olien is on a mission to find the most potent superfoods that the western civilization has never been exposed to or know very little about…. Enough that they can get off their prescription medications. Besides working with Shamans who have used superfoods for generations, Darin is working with Dr.

William Li at the Angiogenesis Foundation. Why do superfoods, from around the world, matter to you? Why did Alissa offer a Unbiased Shakeology review? Is there a difference in benefits between the Vegan and Non-Vegan Shakeology flavors?
