Use only 1/2 scoop for the first week or so. – If you get the packets, use 1/2 of the packet per shake. Since Shakeology is so rich in nutrients, sometimes the introduction of them into your system (especially if your diet isn’t clean) can be startling. It’s best to ease into it a 1/2 scoop at a time.
If you’re lactose intolerant, you may want to order the Vegan formulas. The regular formulas have a milk protein in them that’s amazing, but…not if you’re lactose intolerant. If you’ve already ordered the regular kind and are sitting there going, “Shoot!”, don’t worry. You can call customer service and you’ll be able to return your bag for an exchange. Sometimes people don’t know this and if they’re lactose sensitive, when they drink it they get a belly ache. The Vegan formula should help.
Cut back slow. – if you are use to really sweet foods then remember to make your shake so you enjoy it and slowly reduce the sweeteners ( fruit, stevia, flavored milk etc.)
Like it creamy? – if you like it creamy use a milk source ( oat milk is amazing!) or add greek yogurt.
Prep Your Shakes. – Throw some pre-measured fruit and greens into a bag and place in the freezer. This is a great way to make sure you don’t waste the beautiful produce you bought if it starts to go bad.
Get Your Green On. – Add a handful of kale or spinach—you won’t even know it’s in there but it will help you get even more greens into your diet!
Easy Access. – Leave it out on your counter. When things get lost in the pantry or you have to get up on a chair to reach it, you’re setting yourself up for extra work. Out of sight, out of mind is for real.
Clean Blender. – Let’s face it, nobody enjoys cleaning the blender. But, did you know placing a little bit of soap and water into the blender, blending up, and rinsing is a quick-and-easy solution to a dirty blender?
Be Ratio Ready. – Remember the ratio of liquid to add-ins—and look for that perfect fit for you.
