Shocking Fast-Food Super-sizing Truths

           Being a native Texan I take pride in the Lone Star State, but did you know that over twenty-eight percent of Texans are considered obese. I feel that’s twenty-eight percent too much. The biggest contributor to this disease is fast food. People are on this “Super-Size Me” trend where they feel they want to get the most bang for the buck so they order the largest meal possible. If you went to McDonalds and got a Big Mac meal with the large fry and coke it’s a total of 1,580 calories for one meal that will only fill you up for a short period of time. In the burger alone there forty grams of fat and over seventy carbs.

Add on to that the cost being 7 plus dollars for the meal. After eating fast food you always feel sluggish and fat. But there is an amazing substitute. Shakeology is the key. One shakeology is the equivalent to going to a salad bar; 5 times. It’s got 140 calories with only 1gram of fat and nineteen carbs. It will fill you up, make you feel healthy and keep you going on about your day without a guilty conscious. When you eat like crap you feel like crap, but when you eat good you feel good.

Shakeology has over 70 ingredients in it each with it’s own unique benefit. From the protein and amino acids that help build lean muscle or optimize brain function to the digestive enzymes that help break down foods and increase absorption of nutrients. If you went out and bought all of the supplements in Shakeology: the digestive enzymes, anti-oxidants, phyto nutrients, vitamins and minerals, protein and amino acids and pre-biotics you’d be spending 200 plus dollars.  One of the best parts of shakeology is the price, at only $4 a shake it doesn’t get any better! In this case less is definitely more. Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels.

Shakeology is nationally known and popular as well. CEO and creator Darin Olien was interviewed by the people at Oprah magazine in the May 2011 issue Shakeology was quoted as being “…a crazy cornucopia of good.” The creator of Beachbody Carl Daikeler challenged Olien to make something that was the healthiest meal of the day and I believe he’s succeeded in every way. I personally use Shakeology and recommend it to everyone. There’s no need to go out and get the supersized jumbo anything. Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels.
