Eat food: Eat food, not marketing. Skip the Shakeology, save your money for fresh fruits and veggies. The best advice comes from Michael Pollan: "Eat Food. Mostly Plants. Not too much". The side effect of Shakeology is supporting the lie that there is some trick to weight loss and health, or that you can buy it in a can. It's how you take care of yourself: eat unprocessed food and exercise, get sleep.
