I’m sad to say it, and I’ve been absent from this blog for a little while, but I have to stop drinking Shakeology. Nothing against the product in general except that apparently I’m allergic to something in it. I was getting these sore throats that just wouldn’t go away and I thought it was lingering illness. When it had been almost two months of constant sore throats, however, I started to think there could be another cause, especially because I was feeling much better in every way except for my throat.
I decided to stop drinking it for a few days to see if I felt any better and my sore throats magically went away. So…there you have it.
I looked into it a bit and it seems that if you have a ragweed allergy (I do), you may react to stevia, which is an ingredient in Shakeology. I hadn’t really had stevia before so that definitely sounds like the cause.
So I had to, sadly, cancel my coach account. I had signed up as a coach because it seemed like a great way to not only motivate myself to get in better shape, but also to help others, but I obviously can’t keep buying a product I’m allergic to, so it is what it is.
In other news, I have quite a few packets of Shakeology to unload. Maybe Ebay??
Well, onward and upward. I’m trying a very Mediterranean approach to my diet at the moment and I’m feeling pretty happy with my food choices. Now just to get myself exercising more…..
