If anything, adding Shakeology to your low carb diet will improve your results! Yes, carbs are the macronutrient most prone to turn to fat, but that’s only when they’re not being used properly. They’re also the body’s preferred source of fuel, as in, they’re the most efficient way to fuel workouts. Although Beachbody offers some high protein options, we never low-ball carbs for exactly this reason. Without carbs, your body can convert protein and fat (both dietary and bodily) to fuel, but it’s a less efficient pathway, so you’re more prone to “bonking” or running out of blood sugar and glycogen. Furthermore, you’re putting your body under an enormous amount of stress, which can cause all kinds of issues, including catabolism, or the breaking down of muscle for energy.
