Do I need to use Shakeology with this?
I just ordered P90X and I'm just wondering if I don't use any other suppliments like Shakeology and other things will I still receive good results as long as I keep up with it and maintain my diet. What does the Shakeology exactly do with this workout?

Hi,
Shakeology is a multi-vitamin shake like there is no other in the market. Will help you level your metabolism and health in general. The results of people that take Shakeology regularly are weight lost, and overall more energy and health. You can see more information here: http://www.shakeology.com/

You don't really need supplements if you have proper nutrition, however most of the time is difficult to get the proteins from just regular food.

Great question! You don't have to include it, but I would highly recommend it. Here's why and what you would be missing.

What it has:

1.Highly absorbable protein with all 8 essential amino acids helps build muscles & reduce food cravings
2.Daily supply of 23 vitamins & minerals so you don’t have to take your multivitamin any more
3.Red & blue superfoods are high in cancer-preventing antioxidants
4.Green superfoods help to detoxify the body, neutralize pH, and have anti-inflammatory properties
5.Adaptogen herbs help the body to cope with environmental stresses and toxins
6.Digestive enzymes and pre & probiotic aids improve digestion & nutrient absorption

What it doesn’t have:

1.NO artificial anything- colors, preservatives, flavors, or chemicals
2.NO caffeine- whole foods supply the body with all the nutrients it needs so it eliminates the need for additional stimulants making it safe for everyone
3.NO heat processing- considered a “raw” food, the whole-food ingredients won’t be denatured because they are never heated over 117 degrees, allowing them to maintain the maximum amount of nutrients and bioavailability
4.NO added sugar- certified low glycemic index helps to stabilize blood sugar levels, keep calories low, and promotes weight loss
5.NO gluten- limits bowel irritability while promoting nutrient absorption

In Health,

Hey there,

I agree it is a bit pricey but if you were to try to find an alternative, which there are some out there. They will not be the same as what Shakeology provides. The other's may have more protein or less carbs, fat etc, but this stuff has digestive enzymes, natural sweetners versus artificial. Definitely worth trying even for a month. They do have a really good return policy as well. Dont know if you buy any meals daily like I use to do which was breakfast. I swapped it out with Shakeology and I have saved a few bucks and a plus was weightloss. Good luck. Message here if you have more questions.

Thanks for your input! I make my own breakfast every morning but I have heard amazing things about shakeology and I just ordered P90X and it comes with samples so we will see how I like that. I'm not usually a fan of the texture of shakes so we will see. But thank you for your help! If I have any questions I will be sure to ask!
