When I was at Beachbody Coach Summit a couple weeks ago, I got to meet Shakeology Creator Darin Olien. Want to hear my small world story? While I was there, I found out he is a native of Waseca, Minnesota; a small town just 25 miles away from where I live!
When I spoke with him at Summit, he told me he’d be speaking there in just two weeks. Of course I couldn’t pass up another opportunity to listen to him. He’s incredibly interesting, knowledgeable and passionate about nutrition. The guy knows his stuff.
One of the products I discovered at Summit was the new Shakeology Boost line. Boost is developed to further supplement your diet beyond that which Shakeology provides. You didn’t get your greens in for the day? Use the Power Greens. Feeling tired and sluggish? Focused Energy is your thing. There are three formulations for Shakeology Boost. A few of my clients have asked, “Why use Boost if you’re using Shakeology already?” Good question. In this video clip, Darin Olien explains why.
I’ve tried all the Boost products and I can say they really work.
Power Greens is really good to add to your shakes if you don’t consume enough veggies, in particular greens like spinach, kale and . I would say you can detect a taste, so I’ll be adding just 1/2 scoop to mine. Supports the body’s natural acid/alkaline balance.
Digestive Health is the least strong-tasting. I can’t taste this in my shakes at all. It’s got lots of soluble and soluble fiber, making it a good solution to promote regularity and digestive health.
For me, it’s Focused Energy that I’m most excited about. I have some sleep issues which cause me to be a light sleeper at night, and taking Focused Energy helps me get through my mid-afternoon slump without feeling like I have to take a nap. It is developed to deliver long-lasting energy without the spike and plummet. It contains guarana and green tea- healthy super food sources of caffeine. I tried mixing it with water alone once. Just once. Gross. I can’t detect a taste in my shakes though.
