Do you count calories? Are you familiar with macros vs. micros in your foods? Macronutrients are basically “Food 101”: protein, fat and carbohydrates. The Basics. The numbers that the average person will look at when determining whether or not they choose to eat whatever it might be.
Some of us count macros but we choose to go a little deeper. We take a look at actual ingredients in our food. We dig into the Micronutrients: vitamins and minerals that are not produced in the body and must be obtained through food sources. Micronutrients can also be ingested in pill form (aka a Vitamin) however, these are highly processed micronutrients and harder for your body to break down and absorb. Your best bet for Micronutrients – WHOLE FOODS.
Shakeology is made from whole foods that have been harvested, freeze dried and ground. Each glass of Shakeology does contain your typical macronutrients which are all right in line with a diet based on high protein, low carb and low saturated fats. However, it’s the micronutrients that put Shakeology head and shoulders above any other shake on the market.
I’ve been drinking Shakeology for over three years and can tell you, personally, my sugar cravings have been dramatically reduced, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been sick, my hair is thicker, my nails are longer, my skin is more resilient! I’ve also ditched my multi-vitamin. I’m getting all of my macronutrients and micronutrients from my diet and my daily dose of dense nutrition aka Shakeology.
