That's a good question! I'm the same way when I drink a protein shake. I have no idea why the Shakeology suppresses my appetite. I'm guessing it's the flax and all the greens in it.
I'd either have a small bowl of oatmeal at home (steel cut) with dried fruit and nuts, or when in a time crunch, either the feta/spinach/egg wrap at Sbux or their low fat turkey bacon egg sandwhich thing.mspina,
If you don't mind my asking what did you eat for breakfast prior to taking the shakes?
I don't think it's that it actually suppresses your appetite - it's that it's so nutrient packed, you aren't hungry because you don't need to eat anything yet from a nutrition standpoint. If you eat crap, you have to eat a LOT of it to get the nutrients your body needs. Conversely, if you constantly eat nutritionally dense food, you need to eat much less, calorie-wise.
I don't have IBS, but I am allergic to pollen. I haven't had any problems. I have read several posts on the BB forum from people who have had problems with painful gas and bloat. I started out with 1/2 scoop to see if I would have any digestive issues.Does anyone have allergies (pollen/ragweed) that use the Shakeology? I was just wondering if a person needed to worry about the different grasses in it?
Anybody with IBS that take it?
All I have to go on are the several tubs of protein powders that I won't use/will eventually throw out because I can't stand the taste.Has anyone acutally done a comparison between Shakeology and others? Of course, BB really pitches it as "one of a kind."
I considered signing up as a coach for the discount, but after the $15 a month coach fee, I wouldn't be saving that much. I have no desire to sell BB products.As far as the price goes if you are a coach and get the discount you are talking about less than $4 per drink. Cheaper than many Starbucks drinks or even many smoothies at Smoothie King or the like.
