Shakeology is much more than just a protein shake. It’s also in a completely different league than your standard, everyday “meal-replacement shake”. In a nutshell, Shakeology is a complete (and super healthy) meal in a glass. Each shake is packed with 70 whole food ingredients, that deliver the essential nutrients that the body craves and is often deprived due to today’s typical unhealthy American diet.
Most Americans eat a steady stream of processed foods that are high in fat and sugar, and the challenge of eating a healthy diet is more difficult than ever. Shakeology offers a solution to that problem, one that is both convenient and affordable.
Unlike other meal replacements, Shakeology ingredients are derived from WHOLE FOOD sources- you never have to worry about consuming exotic synthetic extracts or isolates when you drink a Shakeology shake. Also, it’s important to note that Shakeology contains absolutely no artificial sweeteners such as sucralose and aspartame, and the whey protein used in the product is certified to be 100% free of antibiotics. It is the only meal-replacement product we endorse at PEAK fitness NW.
How to Use Shakeology?
Replace your WEAKEST meal of the day with Shakeology. In other words, which meal do you struggle with the most to get optimal nutrition? For most clients, this is breakfast. For others that may have a busy job or work through lunch, you may consider replacing your fast food or frozen lunch meal with Shakeology.

Shakeology users have reported a wide range of health benefits, ranging from increased energy to lower cholesterol. In addition to providing all of these great benefits, it’s also great to know that Shakeology is certified low glycemic with a 24 GI (glycemic index) rating. A 24 GI rating is extremely LOW (which is a good thing) and yet another confirmation of just how healthy this product really is.
In case you are not familiar with the GI ratings and the topic of blood sugar, foods that have high glycemic index ratings cause the body to produce higher levels of insulin which will provide a sugar rush, followed by a crash. Eating a diet that is primarily made up of low-GI foods is a great way to stabilize blood sugar and insulin levels.
