Weekly Coach Check-In: August 28th, 2012

Hey TeamInternallyFit,

For those of you that drink shakeology daily, you’ve probably received your shipment of the new superfood chocolate formula.  How did you like it?  Good?  Bad?  Neutral?  Did you have an after taste?  These are just a few of the concerns that I’ve heard coming from the community about the new superfood formula.

Here is what you can expect:

 Old vs. New Look: The new superfood formula for chocolate is lighter in color than the original chocolate, which had a very dark color.  The texture is less dense and is lighter and fluffier than the original.  This is most likely due to the superfood formula having a plant protein and less cocoa powder in it.

Old vs. New Smell: The new superfood chocolate does not have the rich chocolate smell you had with the original chocolate.  But, it doesn’t smell bad, just not as chocolaty.  

Old vs. New Taste: To me this is the most important.  How does it taste?  There is no doubt a difference in flavor.  Most people I heard noticed the difference right away.  But it wasn’t necessarily a “bad taste” (I was expecting it to taste terrible after hearing the negative reviews on message boards).  My favorite is still the original chocolate, but I also like the new superfood formula as well.  Not only do I like the taste but with the addition of 4 new superfoods, shakelogy just got healthier!  

It’s my guess that people who never tried the original formula will love the new superfood chocolate formula, and those who aren’t crazy about the new flavor right now will start to really like it as they get used to it (less sweet, less “chocolate” than the original). 

For those that don’t like the new superfood chocolate formula, the word from Beachbody is that they are working on the new superfood Chocolate flavor to bring out a more chocolaty taste so the story isn’t over yet.  They ARE listening to everyone’s feedback, and their goal is to give us the healthiest meal of the day (first and foremost), yet also give us something that tastes GREAT.  I have applied to be apart of the taste test group that will review the new choices . . . cross your fingers.

So if you are one of the folks who don’t like this change in taste, don’t get frustrated.  Beachbody wants to give us the very best nutrition, but taste is important too.  They have learned a lot from the vegan formulation, and they wanted to increase the superfoods in the original.  It’s a work in process, be patient and Beachbody will come through.

New on this week:

1.) Not A Diet – If you’ve tried the latest “diet” crazy and have failed to get the results you wanted, you’re not alone.  Instead of starting a new diet, why not try what works, a healthy lifestyle change that will have you feeling great and losing weight at the same time.  It will also help you keep it off!!

2.) Exercises To Avoid – There is no doubt that injuries are going to be a part of any exercise program, but knowing which ones can actually prevent injury and ones that can lead to injury is important.  This article lists 5 exercises that need to be avoided for a safer and healthier workout.

3.) Shakeology for Kids? – Can’t get your kids to eat their vegetables?  Why not try shakeology, it’s filled with nutrients that are great for growing kids, plus it provides them with all the fruits and veggies they will need each day.  Oh, did I mention it tastes like a chocolate milkshake?

Weekly Health Tip:

Turkey burgers made with lean ground turkey (90 percent lean) are packed with protein and contain fewer calories and saturated fat than typical beef burgers, making them a good choice if you’re trying to lose weight, have high cholesterol or blood pressure, or you’re at risk for or have type 2 diabetes.


And 2 favors that I ask:
1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them. Click the share links below them and share them on FB, twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow TeamInternallyFit!
2) Also, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site,, (If you buy from the plain Beachbody site I get no credit). It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it! 

Food, Faith and Fitness
