The Solution to a Healthy Lifestyle as a Diabetic…Shakeology – Is it a Miracle? 

img_228376e437a3f6994f08943f34f94e4800dcimg_2282

 

What is Shakeology’s Impact on Diabetes & Blood Sugar?!? How is it saving lives, reversing years of diabetic damage and giving people their health back?!?

Hear it from them and read on to see how:

Hear David’s Story here: How Shakeology saved my life and my marriage!

“I swear by Shakeology! It reversed 10 years of diabetic A1C levels in me in just 4 months of daily use. Can’t and won’t live without it! My endocrinologist has it written in my medical file as a requirement for me to take now, and another doctor was so impressed that she started taking it and it reversed her diabetic levels she had for 7 years.” -Gwyn M.
********************
“My mom told me again earlier today how beautiful her blood sugars are. Shakeology has helped to dramatically reduce her insulin. Sometimes she doesn’t even need her insulin. I’m glad I made my mom try Shakeology a year and a half ago.” ~Shakeology customer.
*********************
“Shakeology works, because I am a diabetic that was on 9 pills. But once I started drinking Shakeology, it changed my overall numbers in blood pressure, sugar levels, and cholesterol. To this date of 6 months of drinking Shakeology and working out – NO PILLS!!” –Sydney
******************
“I’m a 57 yr old insulin dependent diabetic, on insulin for 47 yrs. I’ve been using Shakeology daily since 4/8/10 and it’s a predictable meal, in that the carbs are exact. That has been a major benefit for me. Since then I’ve dropped 22 lbs, reduced my daily total insulin by nearly 40%, and am now off bp medication. Also, the only workout I’ve done is the one that comes w/ the drink mix… I call ’em Shake30 and Shake50 workouts. I haven’t worked out much at all the last six weeks, other than running a bit, but the weight continued to drop and it must be due to the Shakeology.” _BH
******************
“Being DIABETIC, and HAVING KIDNEY & THYROID DISEASE, I had to do something.

Thanks to Beachbody, I have lost a total of 75lbs. and now living a more fit and healthier lifestyle. I come from a family of Type 2 Diabetics and was borderline diabetic myself, and had Kidney disease, Thyroid disease and back pains. Doing Beachbody’s workout programs and drinking SHAKEOLOGY has changed all that! My thyroid results are normal!!! My doctors are AMAZED at my results!!! My lab results are ALL NORMAL now and show that I am NO LONGER DIABETIC!!! I have so much more energy, strength and stamina than I have ever had when I was in my teens and 20s. I started at 196lbs. wearing a size 16 and am currently 125lbs. wearing a size 4!!! I have never been a size 4 before in my life!!” ~Jenny, mother of 4, and works full time.
**********************
“My wife’s Type 2 Diabetes was reversed thanks to Shakeology.” – Sean K.
**********************
“My friend’s doctor (YES DOCTOR) said she should try SHAKEOLOGY and she has DIABETES! SMART DR!” -Stacie M.
**********************
“I was borderline type 2 diabetic for the past few years. I also had gestational when I was prego. (3-4yrs ago) In December (2013)I signed up for shakeo and was just hoping to lose weight. But it dropped and regulated my blood sugar within the first few weeks of using it. I am no longer get the headaches from my blood sugar rollercoastering. I no longer considered borderline. My blood sugar is normal.” -Amy S.
**********************
“My fasting number this morning was no longer in the “diabetes” range but in the “pre-diabetes” range…with NO meds! I am so amazed.” – Kristie M.
**********************
“My parents have been drinking SHAKEOLOGY for a little over a month now. My mother’s sugars are almost normal! AND she was suffering from major diabetes headaches when she ate badly and we were getting ready to increase her insulin!!! She is now coming off her meds all together and is exercising and losing weight! Dad’s sugars are now under control and he is getting ready to cut out his meds as well! Shakeology has changed the blood chemistry in my household and family for the better!” – Ilene W.
***********************
RAFAEL’S MOM: DIABETES, ANEMIA, SLEEP APNEA, OBESITY

“Without her even knowing, my mom expressed to me the compliments she was receiving ever since she started on Shakeology. To start things off, let’s start with my mom’s medical condition prior to Shakeology. My mom is Diabetic and anemic. She was placed on Thyroid medication to help her lose weight. Her insulin was prescribed to help control her sugar levels. My mom is medically disabled and has had to use wheel chairs and a cane to assist in getting around. She also has to sleep with a sleep apnea machine to help her breathe at night.

After hearing and seeing what Shakeology has done to me, my mom decided to give it a try. After having to spend hundreds of dollars on shakes and Ensure from her doctor’s office, she figured why not do Shakeology.
So, 2 months have gone by and my mom opened her third bag. She went to the local grocery store (Publix) where like always, the cashiers are so friendly and always remember their customers. My mom walks in and the cashier yells, “OMG SYLVIA, You’ve lost so much weight and you’re walking WITHOUT A CANE!! What are you doing?”

That excitement brought my mom to say SHAKEOLOGY! My son got me on it and it’s helped me so much, she said.

My mom got the lady’s email and called me about the news. Next, my mom went to her doctor’s office. All the nurses, techs, and receptionist were shocked, too. She went the other day after having a physical done.

Her doctor walked in with a confused look on her face. Looking at the chart then at my mom, the doctor couldn’t understand the rapid change. First thing out the doctor’s mouth was, “Sylvia, what are you doing different?” my mom said “Shakeology why?” The doctor replied, “Well, don’t ever stop it!”

The doctor then explained to my mom that she no longer needed her insulin, her levels were normal. Next the doctor lowered her triglyceride medication. Next the doctor was happy to tell her that she was now no longer anemic. Within 2 months, my mom lost 32 pounds, that’s an average of 16 pounds a month. Mind you, my mother is disabled so she CANNOT EXERCISE. This has all taken place simply by drinking Shakeology. Also with the weight loss, my mom hasn’t needed to use her cane to walk or sleep apnea machine when sleeping.

This is a true testimonial that Shakeology is the healthiest meal of the day.”

You’re Invited! Happy Halloween!

You’re Invited to my Exclusive Core De Force Launch Party!

We are having a  party and you’re invited! On October 31st, TODAY, the brand new Beachbody program Core De Force launches and on November 7th my first ever Core De Force Exclusive Test group Kicks off! This is going to be so fun! This is the time of year when people check out on their goals and check-in to the Holiday Slumber! Where we put our health and fitness goals, and even our budgets on the back burner!  We become so focused on fun parties, drinks, delicious food and SHOPPING that we forget all about ourselves, our goals and our mission!  This time of year we allow the rain, the cool weather and the temptation around every corner derail our mindset and our results!
This is why I have made it my mission to keep people accountable to themselves and their goals AND enjoy the holiday season. I actually double down on my health and wellness during this time of year because I feel like finishing the year better than when I started it is necessary in my life and helps me build a TON of positive momentum during the first quarter of the year. So the Core De Force launch is perfect timing because we all need a community to help carry us through the madness! Core De Force is not only a great way to get in shape and turn some heads at all of the holiday get-together’s that you go to but it is a great way to blow off a lot of steam from the inevitable stress of family, friends, budgets and meals through the the boxing, Muay Thai, and MMA inspired workouts. Since progress equals happiness this program and my group will kick start you on the road to progress during the time of year when others are falling off…Don’t put yourself last this season, lets kick some A$$ together!

So What’s Core De Force?

Core De Force is the first program from Beachbody’s newest Super Trainers Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews. They are experts in the field of fitness, group fitness, and kick ass MMA style workouts. If you want to blow off some of that holiday stress and finish the year in better shape than you started it in then the MMA inspired Core De Force is for you. One of the coolest things about Core De Force is that each workout is broken into 3-minute “rounds” which is just like a real boxing match. During each 3 minute round you will alternate between Boxing, Kickboxing, and Muay Thai-inspired combinations, body weight training, and cardio spikes. This will ignite your fat burning and shred your core through massive amounts of engagement and rotation during each and every combination you throw. I know that you may be thinking that you do not know the first thing about throwing a punch or kick but it doesn’t matter. There is an amazing modifier with every workout and even tutorials that show you how to throw a kick and a punch properly. I love these kinds of workouts because they blow off so much steam while I am working and I always get so sore because I find myself really engaging and going HARD! I got to do a couple Sneak Peeks of this work out and I am hooked!!!

When you join my Exclusive Test Group and get your Core De Force pack it includes:

  • 4 MMA-style workouts,
  • 2 bodyweight workouts,
  • 2 core workouts,
  • 1 active recovery workout,
  • 1 quick before-bed stretch routine,
  • Quick-start guide
  • 30-day calendar
  • Easy to follow Meal plan
  • Color coded portion control containers
  • 30 days of Superfood Nutrition in the flavor you will love the most: Shakeology
  • Bonus workout: MMA MASHUP
  • Access to my group and online wellness community
  • Me as your FREE Coach and personal cheerleader every single day!

Let’s do this thing!

It is time for you to make a commitment to yourself. We are going to punch, kick, and fight our way through this holiday season with a ton of positivity and we are going to have a whole lot of fun! This is the time to build momentum. I am not about New Year’s Resolutions, I am all about putting in constant work to make my life what I want it to be. New Year’s resolutions most often don’t work but YEAR END resolutions do! True change and improvement is all about making a decision. This is your time to really make progress on your health and fitness. I do not want you to press pause on your life and enter that alternate reality for the next few months. This will only lead to a January where you come out of the holiday funk overweight, disengaged, stressed out, a little bummed, and hung over when you could sprint into January with a ton of energy, fire, and determination to make 2017 the best year yet. It really all depends on what you do with these next few months. Make a decision. Decide. Commit. Succeed.

Find a Workout Routine that You Love and Fits Your Lifestyle

Be open to finding a workout routine you love!  It might take time, but be open to the process. Most people, even those who don’t enjoy exercise, have at least one routine they consider “tolerable”. You might even be one of those lucky people who almost enjoys exercise. Whichever the case may be, I want […]

The Power of Positive Thinking, The Will to Change Your Life

So many people are pigeonholed into careers and roles that they never feel truly passionate about and they feel angst and regret for the life they should have lived or could have lived.

I want to send a message to our youth to our children and to our current working force women and men that YOU ARE MORE THAN!  You are worth more, you were made for more… I am not talking about mothers and fathers being unhappy in their domestic roles or about the workforce being undriven in their current positions.

DRIVE IS NOT THE SAME AS PURPOSE

I am talking about being COMPLACENT to accept their career, their ladder to success, their daily monotony… Even the most successful business women and men are NOT walking in their purpose, do NOT feel a fire in their hearts and are NOT fulfilled in their invested time at work.

They go to work. They come home. They often even work once they are at home. But they NEVER feel at peace. No matter how high they climb or how hard they try, or how many promotions they get… something is ALWAYS MISSING.

WHY you ask?!?

WHY would I make such a bold statement? How dare I?

Well just ASK THEM. Or better yet, ask yourself:

What is the desire of my heart?

What was I created to do?

When do I feel the most alive?

NOW ask :

Am I fulfilling that desire?

Am I using that gift to do what I was created to do?

Am I impacting the world in a positive way?

Am I fulfilled?

What was your answer?  Do you want to answer yes to all those big life questions?

What if I told you, YOU CAN!  You can live out your HIGHEST purpose in this world and still make lots of money, or have personal success or emotional happiness.  You do not have to choose between being successful and being happy. You can have it all. Seriously I am not pulling your chain, I’ve been there.

Actually I’ve been in all of the roles imaginable, I am a mom and wife and I’ve stayed home while my hubby worked, I’ve worked part time, full time, I’ve been completely broke, had immense business success and had great financial gain, I’ve been restless and  lost and had small to large regrets, I’ve been walked on, passed up and even unknown by my boss who I’ve centered my world around.

  One day I asked myself “what kind of example am I setting for my kids if I let them see me like this?”

Like a deflated balloon someone is dragging around by the string!?!

What message does that send them?

So I decided NO MORE Mrs. Nice Girl. No more pulling my string. No more regrets, no more excuses.  I DECIDED to take the reigns and put all the positive energy I could muster out into the universe (the universe=Gods plan=fate=whatever you believe insert it here), into every single aspect of my life.  Into every person I meet, every hater I encounter, every obstacle I cross and every thing I do, I do it with POSITIVITY.  Do you know what happens when you put positivity into the universe?

Positivity comes back to you, 10 fold, 20 fold, Hell I don’t even know how much but a heck of a lot of positivity!

In the form of personal growth, financial gain, self confidence, self love, marital bliss, parenting success, emotional stability, relational peace… you name it, you will receive it. All by putting your very best positive foot forward in this world.

  Do you struggle with where to start?  How to be postitive?  Well I have a few tried and true tips for you! Follow these simple steps to get started, and see your life change before your eyes!

  1. Meet EVERYONE with a smile, not just those who deserve a smile, not just those who smile at you, but everyone you encounter
  2. Don’t allow others to dictate your actions or feelings, you are not a balloon on a string, do not act like it
  3. Choose your battles, I mean really choose them… Is it worth it to win the arguement about who left the dishes in the sink, when it means fighting for an hour about everything in between?  Probably not, you know what you could do with that hour?  Take 2 minutes and rinse the stupid dishes, politely ask whoever you think left them there to try and not do it in the future, then spend the rest of the 57 or so minutes talking about positive things going on in your life, connecting and conversing – building a relationship and meeting the world with positivity
  4. Don’t say things you don’t want repeated
  5. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything.  Seems pretty basic right?  But it is probably one of the hardest things to really do…Even in frustration, in total stress-dom, speak in kindness, speak criticism from a place of love and safety…believe me you and they will be much happier
  6. Stand up for others
  7. Take time for yourself EVERY DAY – a minimum of 10 minutes, totally for yourself…not locking yourself in the bathroom and playing a game on your phone, but turning off the world for 10 whole minutes and focus on your goals with total and complete positivity
  8. Put what you want into the universe, and the universe will deliver it…speak your goals out loud, say them to someone, make them real and known and present
  9. Lastly and most importantly BE KIND – above all else treat everyone with kindnessSounds easy enough right? You cannot achieve your purpose and greatness if you do not own your drive and dream – the universe simply CANNOT give you the desires of your heart if you do not give them to the universe!

So what are you waiting for?  Your mind is a powerful force, when you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change… go change your life.
