Shakeology for breakfast or lunch
So I'm on my second round of P90X. I took a year off from my first round due to some shoulder problems. I'm two weeks into the lean program and just ordered Shakeology. I routinely use the recovery drink after each workout(I love that stuff). I do my workouts after work and before dinner.

My question is, is it better to use Shakeology for breakfast or lunch. I usually have a small bowl of cereal with 1% milk for breakfast and I feel it would be a better replacement for lunch. I'm trying to follow the nutrition plan in the P90X and I'm in the beginning of the fat shredder phase.

Curious what all the nutritionists think.

I use Shakeology primarily for the nutritional value. I use Shakeology for Breakfast because it gives me all the nutrients I will need for the day. It also jump starts my body with all the superfoods that it contains.

You can use it to replace lunch, it really depends on what you are using it for. Nutritional Value or for weight loss to reduce your caloric intake.

I have done multiple rounds of P90X. Let me know if you need any assistance as you move forward. The Fat Shredder phase can be difficult.

Talk to you soon!

It doesn't really matter when you drink it. Either way you'll get the same amount of nutritional value in your system. Just find the best time or meal that works for you!

I think it depends on your goals and what you're looking to get out of Shakeology. I sent you a buddy request and we can talk about more on how to personalize Shakeology for you. Thanks.
