There is a 3 word subject line to this post and I am sure that it will cause a lot of people who won’t bother reading the post to say, “See, that Shakeology causes diarrhea.” The truth is that in a one time test of Shakeology conducted in the last 24 hours, it has had just the opposite effect – Shakeology stopped my diarrhea.
I woke up at 3:30 am yesterday morning with a headache, feeling achy and my stomach was telling me that something was wrong. Both of my girls had stomach viruses and had thrown up in the past week, but I had avoided it until yesterday. Although I didn’t throw up, I did have bad diarrhea and doing just a shortened 20:00 workout at my usual 6:00 am was touch and go.
But I finished and immediately had a Shakeology with almond milk. Over the course of the rest of the day, I had Shakeology for breakfast, lunch and dinner mixed with plain yogurt, bananas and almond milk for more calories. I never had diarrhea again during the day and woke up today feeling okay.
Was it just because of drinking Shakeology while a had a stomach virus? No, I have been drinking Shakeology every day for the last year and I am super healthy on the inside. I had no appetite, but I could drink Shakeology to sustain me during a bout with a stomach virus and I do believe that it significantly hastened my recovery.
