Breaking the vicious cycle of weight loss.....

How many of you have gone through this vicious cycle of dieting and weight loss and fall off the wagon because you get frustrated?

Does any of this look familiar to you?
Have you ever decided to start a diet and been so determined and started out with a bang only to end up frustrated and throwing in the towel? I think we all have at one time or another.
See, they cycle of dieting goes like this...
We decide to start the diet and plan on eating right so we figure we have to reduce our caloric intake and increase exercise. We do great for about the first 10 to 14 days and then something happens. We become nutrient deficient since we have reduced our calories, sometimes resulting in too large of a caloric deficit. We notice our progress slows along with our determination. We start craving junk foods and the temptation gets stronger and we give in. Then, we feel guilty and hate ourselves for giving in. We feel like we have failed and now we feel hopeless.
 Does any of this sound familiar?
Once we give in to one craving, we give in to more resulting in gaining back some, if not all, of the weight we just worked at losing. A few weeks or even months later, we decide to start again, only to end up frustrated and hopeless.
The key to ANY good weight loss program is NUTRIENTS!!
If you are not feeding your body correctly, then you will feel deprived and cave into the cravings. Signs of nutrient deficiency are feelings of sluggishness, cravings, mental fog, and irritability.
Ever feel this way when you're trying to lose weight?
 Nutrient deficiency has been shown to cause an 80% increase in the likelihood of becoming overweight or obese and is scientifically linked to higher risks of other dangerous and debilitating diseases including infections, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.
If you are getting all the nutrients your body needs, your weight loss will be a byproduct of being nutrient full. It all falls into place. There is no need to starve yourself. 
 Which brings me to my next subject.....
 I know, no one has time for meal planning right? Well, do you have time for heart disease or any of the above mentioned illnesses? When put that way, I am sure you can find a little time. We're all busy but if it's that important to you, you must find the time.
Meal planning can be quite easy if you have a PLAN!
If your fridge is stocked with food you will actually eat and I mean healthy food. You'll be just fine.
Here are some helpful tips in meal planning.
-Choose your recipes and what you will be making for the week.
Try picking things you can cook once and eat twice. Reheating food is a big time saver.
-Make a list
Write down what you will be eating for the week along with the ingredients you will need from the store. This eliminates errors during the week with bad food choices.
-Set aside time for shopping.
I can tell you, I HATE shopping. Not one of my favorite things to do but we all have to eat right? BUT, having a list and knowing what you need to buy is half the battle. Now, set some time aside to go shopping.
-Food Prep.
Once you have all the ingredients and your list of recipes and meals you will be eating for the week, it's go time. It may take a few hours to get it all cooked and planned out but it is so worth it in the end.
The key to losing weight, feeling healthy and good about yourself is to adopt a lifestyle and habits that you can stick to long term.
If you'd like to understand more about nutrition and how food works in your body PLUS follow a 4 week meal plan with workouts, I highly recommend you check out my 4 week program.

I have people tell me all the time, "I'm not a shake person." OR "I don't want to rely on a shake to lose weight."
Let me ask you this. How many of you RELY on a certain medication EVERY DAY for Heartburn, Acid Reflux, IBS, Inflammation, Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes and so on? What if you could quit taking them and relying on them just by drinking a shake? Would you become a shake person then?
Shakeology isn't just a "protein" shake or a weight loss shake. It is a meal replacement shake that is packed with nutrients that you aren't getting on a daily basis.
We are ALL nutrient deficient, whether you want to believe that or not. The foods we eat are lacking the key ingredients our bodies need. The nutrients have been diminishing over the years in our foods. Shakeology is filling that gap and reconnecting the missing link to our health.

It's not a "quick fix" weight loss shake. It's a flipping miracle in a glass. No joke. If you don't believe it, try it out for 30 days. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN if you finish it all. That's how much we believe in our product. I'm not saying it's the be all cure all BUT..What if? Seriously. What if all of what I have put up here is true? You'll never know unless you try it. I have seen many people get off of their meds just by adding Shakeology to their daily meals.
 Don't believe me? Go ahead and do your research. You should do that with everything you put into your body. Did you know the FDA approves certain foods that Aren't approved in other countries because of the CRAP that is in in?
Just think for a minute if you didn't get sick as often, if you could get off of those cholesterol pills that may be harming your liver, if you didn't have to eat Tums like they were going out of style because of your constant heart burn. What would your life be like if that happened? How would that change things for you?

Here's what I know. I have been drinking Shakeology for over 2 years and I feel great, haven't been sick, outside of a little cold this past winter, I have more energy, no more heartburn and I don't have those cravings for junk food. I just feel healthier!!!
