Which Shakeology is best on Ketogenic Diet?

Prioritizing your health is pivotal to your success! In order to do so, you must establish a healthy system of daily accountability to ensure you fuel your body right every day.   My results have been nothing short of amazing and I owe a large portion of that to using Shakeology. It provides my body with dense nutrition and in conjunction with tracking my macronutrients, it is a winning combination. Personally, I function best while maintaining a Ketogenic macronutrient ratio of 70% Fat, 25% Protein, and 5% Carbs. It’s my secret weapon but I realize there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Which is why Shakeology is so AWESOME, it works with just about any dietary plan. Plus it is made of over 70 exotic completely natural ingredients, ranked super low on the glycemic index and is low in net carbs. Something most healthy diets strive for!  It’s so powerful to me, which is why I am so passionate to share the data below for those who are also trying the same!

Let’s dive in and take a look at the Net Carbs for each variety of Shakeology:

Coach Talk

I always used to believe that if I got disgusted enough with my body, I would eventually build up the DRIVE to change it. What really happened is, I would feel worse about myself and would ramp up my self-sabotaging behaviors. That’s because I was focusing on NEGATIVITY as fuel instead of POSITIVITY.

I soon realized as simple as it sounds, to make positive changes you must take positive and consistent ACTION. 💛

Metabolism Booster

Yes, it’s possible to kick up your metabolism without dieting and here’s how…

1. END DIETING. When you overly restrict calories, you DO lose weight, BUT you also lose muscle! Your body’s job is to adapt, so at first, when you restrict, you lose a lot of weight, but if you continue to restrict the body adapts by holding on to everything you put in it and burning fewer calories! You should be fueling your body with foods high in Micronutrients.

2. PACK ON MUSCLE. Muscle is what you need to burn fat and calories. Muscle is what helps our body stay young! If you want to lose weight, you should be doing body weight exercises or lifting a minimum of 3 to 4 days a week.

3. FIGURE OUT YOUR NUMBERS. The average person underestimates what they’re consuming and overestimates what they’re burning. So go download a free app like myfitnesspal and figure out what the right ratio is for your diet. You’ve got to eat the RIGHT amount of fats, proteins, and carbs!

Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus and Facebook are probably the top social media sites that every coach should be on right now.

And even though those have millions of users and are great lead generators, there really is no other network as powerful for a Team Beachbody Coach as Facebook.  However, you still have to work to make sure your Business Like Page fan page gets noticed. Getting people to click the almighty “Like” button isn’t as easy as it seems. Even if you have the fans, are generating likes, and comments  Facebook still has its pitfalls.

Let’s review the main reasons why clients might decide your Facebook page isn’t worth a visit, let alone a “like”


Based on your number of “likes” you have will persuade a potential client to either move on or hit “like”. Unfortunately, this a bit of a conundrum because in order to get more people to “like” your page, you need to have likes in the first place. That is exactly the reason why getting your “Like” numbers to increase from 0 to 100 likes seems harder than going to 500 “Likes” once you’ve gotten those initial 100. Although getting “likes” does take time, it’s pretty elementary – you just need to start promoting your fan page to get more people talking about your page.
