    not really. that's kind of the point. drinking a powdered substance that includes something once resembling kale is not the same thing as eating kale.

    Mark cautions against smoothies in the book - Kelly Korg's diet - because of how easy it is to take in excess calories. But then he also sells a shake (Primal fuel) so who knows where he stands
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    My rule for shakes/smoothies is that if I make them myself from raw ingredients, they're fine, but I refuse to ingest strange powders that contain God-only-knows-what.

    Plus, I f@$%ing hate Beachbody with a passion. Shakeology cites a 90 day study - but it's practically (or maybe totally) impossible to find. Google just returns a million hits from other Beachbody coaches (on commission) telling me how good the thing is...annoying.

    Does anybody know the wherebaouts of this study?

    I feel the same way as the Coach about Shakeology and the rest of Beachbody. I don't want anything to do with MLM schemes. That said, I'm also not interested packaged shake mixes of any kind.

    The voice of reason. I'm having a drawn out argument on linkedIn at the moment with about 50 BB coaches who are trying to convince me that Shakeology is "healthier than any meal I could eat". The argument is going in my favour though - primarily because they don't understand rudimentary science.

    As a former BB coach, I'd like to get in on that discussion! That company is so full of hype it's not even funny!

    Well,oddly enough, I was gonna ask the same question! I do drink Shakeology, and have actually seen/experienced favorable results. That being said, I am a recent convert to Primal and my Shakeology is on hold. Not sure if it will be part of my 20%, but I'm in the experimental stages if this new lifestyle. Consequently, I also Crossfit, so that's my focus....to see if primal will improve my fat burning, give me a better performance output without grains/legumes. I am pretty sure my MIL is silently dying on her side of the US as I post about all the fats/dairy we have been ingesting. (She is violently opposed to dairy, is pretty much a nutritionist, drinks her shakes composed of the fresh grown kale/chard veggies from her garden, and is rather ne if the healthiest people I know). I'm rambling right now, so forgive me, lol!

    Yet Mark pimps Primal Fuel?!?

    I think the shakeology powders are some of the most nutritionally balanced *powders available.

    Low carb...No, but at least not loaded with sugars.

    I'm using up the wife's unused supply with coconut milk. Once its gone ill use Primal fuel if i need a quick fix meal.
