Shakeology

So I bought the chocolate from Stu. He had a sale last week (?) and I decided I could splurge and try it. I don't really care for the taste-it's super sweet. I'm kind of glad because I can't afford that habit!

Anyone else try it?

I'm addicted to it. I got GreenBerry, and I seriously love it. Which sort of annoys me, as I really wanted NOT to like it!!!!!

pulling up this older thread...Is anyone using shakeology? I am interested in it now that I read a thread on yayas that it is increasing energy for workouts. I have been super tired lately and my w/o's are being affected.

Any thoughts about shakeology?

Also, is it filling enough to fuel you for your workouts and you day/ morning/ whatever?

I use it in a variety of ways, typically as a meal replacement / snack / pre-workout meal. Most of often I use it for b'fast, but have also had a Shakeology for dinner when it's getting really late (post kid ball game) and I need to have SOMETHING, but don't want a real meal that close to bed.

When I have in the AM, it lasts me for a solid 3 hours - I don't know how, as it's not very high cal (140, plus whatever you mix with it), but it's awesome in its staying power. My next order hasn't arrived yet and I've been trying to make my own version using the SuperFood Greens powder that I have and protein powder. Yuck. I'm spoiled now.

I'm close to caving on it too. Do you need a blender? I workout after work so I don't know how much it would help my workout. I would probably drink it for breakfast for a kick start to the day. Or after my workout as a recovery. Would this work?
