Started Insanity Yesterday
Started Insanity Yesterday

Hello! I started Insanity yesterday and was wondering what I could eat after my workout INSTEAD of drinking Shakeology. The reason I say that is because I cannot afford it emoticon so I need a healthy alternative. I'm 19 years old, 5'3 and weigh 138 lbs. Could Insanity really help me reach my goal weight of 125 lbs. in two months? I'm being patient, but I'm just wondering if it's possible. Do I NEED Shakeology to reach my goal weight in two months? I've been eating healthy and trying to stay under 1500 calories a day. Also, how many calories on average does Insanity help you burn?
I just really need encouragement. I'm getting a bit discouraged by reading that some people haven't seen big results... Please help! Thank you! emoticon

I don't think you can judge your potential results based on what others have experienced. I would give it at least 30 days and be sure to focus on inches lost and fitness gained.

Hi Jessica!

Great job starting insanity. emoticon You want a meal or snack/drink with a 4:1 carb:protein ratio post workout. You can use low fat chocolate milk 8-10 oz as a recovery drink.

You do not need Shakeology to reach your goal. Focus on eating well, whole foods and giving your all to your workouts.

You CAN do this!! emoticon

Happy to help with any questions!

Cheers,
Christina

Could i possibly make it a chocolate/banana milkshake instead of just plain chocolate milk? I'd just use Trumoo fat free chocolate milk, ice, and a banana : )
