How to Save Money and Lose Weight

How to Save Money and Lose Weight

What If I told you that you could save money, save time, and lose weight at the same time? Sounds pretty crazy right? Well the reality is it’s 100% true. It’s so easy you might not even believe it when you read it.

What You Normally Spend on Lunch

If you are like most people, chances are you spend at least $5 on lunch, if you have an apple, a sandwich, and maybe a soda. If you are going out for lunch you probably spend between $10 and $20 on lunch. So what if I told you that you could cut down your lunch costs to $3 a day. What could you do with an extra $7 a day in your pocket? Or an extra $140 in your pocket? You could even replace a Tazo Chai Latte from Starbucks and still save yourself some money!

More Nutrition In Your Body

Lunch time is a critical time of the day to get some good nutrition into your body, yet so many people end up eating junk. You need to replenish your body with healthy food, and at the same time make sure you eat enough to keep you full. You see the main reason people gain weight and fail to lose weight, is their blood sugar levels fluctuate up and down all day long. Not enough sugar, too much sugar. Ever notice that when you have an “awesome” lunch, you get back to your desk and you “crash”. So what do you do? You go to the vending machine and buy a chocolate bar and feel fine for about 20 minutes, and then “crash” again. This is happening because you ate way too many carbohydrates and other sugars at lunch, causing your bodies blood sugar levels to rise, and then rapidly crash.

The Secret, My Secretshakeology-guide-e1448477352510


The secret is Shakeology. Shakeology costs about $3 dollars a day for a full meal that will actually make you more full than anything else you could eat at lunch, and more importantly: It is super healthy for you! Because Shakeology has a really low glycemic index, you will actually feel better after lunch, and will not feel that “crash” effect you do with other meals. You can buy Shakeology in Chocolate, Tropical Strawberry, Caffe Late, and Greenberry. There are even vegan options for the Chocolate and the Tropical Strawberry.

My Challenge To You

Here is my challenge to you. Buy your favorite Shakeology today. Replace your lunch with a shake for one month. Come back here and tell me in the comments how you did! I guarantee you that you will have lost a ton of weight, and more importantly, are feeling healthier and healthier every day. If for some reason you hate it, simply return it for a full refund. There is nothing to lose! You will save money and have more cash to use at the end of the month, you will be skinnier, and you will be healthier! I don’t know what else to tell you folks. If you are on this website, you want to lose weight. This is how.

Cafe Latte Shakeology – New Flavor

cafe-latte-shakeologyEveryone’s heard of the coffee bean, but how many are aware that the red, fleshy fruit that surrounds it is actually a powerful superfood? Café Latte Shakeology now includes Whole Coffee Fruit, an incredible superfood, and has a rich, aromatic café latte flavor. By using the whole fruit, it lowers its carbon footprint while delivering the delightful refreshment found in a cafe cup of joe. It has all the exotic superfood ingredients necessary to deliver a daily dose of dense nutrition. Shakeology is nutrition simplified. It can help to increase healthy energy, reduce cravings, support weight loss, and improve digestion and regularity.*

Cafe Latte Shakeology – A Good Starbucks Alternative?

Let me be clear on this one – Cafe Latte Shakeology does NOT include Caffeine in it (some are rejoicing, some are booing…I can hear you all right now!). BUT, I still believe this is a great Starbucks Alternative.

Caffeine isn’t really the best for us all anyway (see 18 harmful effects of caffeine). By taking the superfood nutrition that comes in each serving of Cafe Latte Shakeology, you are focused more on getting NATURAL energy from phytonutrients (in veggies and plant-based nutrition) to reducing your dependency on caffeine if you use the coffee-flavored inspiration in your morning routine.

Cafe Latte Shakeology – 10 details you Should Know About

Here are the 11 things you should know about with the Cafe Latte Shakeology flavor:

  • Taste – A robust and smooth cafe latte flavor that is light enough for coffee and non-coffee drinkers alike.
  • Protein Source – Whey, sacha inchi, chia, flax, quinoa and pea
  • Calories per Scoop – 150 calories
  • Recipes – Click HERE and at the top click on “Recipes” for Cafe Latte Shakeology.
  • Certified Low Glycemic Index? – YES
  • Gluten Free? – Yes, but not certified.

  • Serving Size – 1 scoop = 80cc
  • Servings per Bag – 30 servings
  • Package Options 
    • 30-day bag (my favorite)
    • 24 single serve packets
    • Barista Triple Combo Pack:8 chocolate, 8 vanilla and 8 cafe latte.


When should you drink this Shake?

You can drink it anytime! This doesn’t necessarily have to be in the morning, as long as you drink it once per day to get your recommended amino acids, prebiotics, probiotics, adaptogens, antioxidants, and superfood nutrition in Shakeology.

Shakeology can help with many of the following:

  • Losing Weight

Top 5 Best Workout Programs for Men


I’ve decided to go is put together my list of the top 5 best workout programs for men. Can anyone guess what #1 is? You will probably be surprised!

Best Workout Programs for Men

(5) Insanity. Insanity is just that, insane. What is Insanity anyways? It’s a 60 day freakin’ INTENSE cardio program that involves a lot of jump training and intervals. However, the intervals aren’t like normal intervals where you have a short burst of exercise with a decent amount of rest, but rather long bursts of high intensity exercises with very short periods of rest. This is why it is #5 on my best workout programs for men.

(4) Asylum. It’s just a 30 day program, but this time it’s more sports focused and involves some weight training. Yeah, that’s right, us guys love to push weights around, and this program allows you to do SOME of that, but not a lot. It’s enough to help you maintain body mass while chiseling yourself with crazy insane and intense jump rope and jump training. Oh and there are quite a few ladder drills involved as well, so this may take you back to your high school or college sport days, if you took part of them of course. Asylum takes the #4 spot on my best workout programs for men.

(3) P90X2. Beachbody hired some of the best sports science guys to come in and help develop this program with Tony Horton, and it sure does take your athletic performance to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL! P90X2 contains a balance of cardio and resistance training, but it’s very intense and different stuff. A lot of the moves in the program focus on improving core strength, so you do a ton of balance exercises. What’s interesting is that you even do a lot of balance exercises while doing weight lifting, so you’re working a lot of muscles at the same time. After 90 days, your athletic performance should greatly improve! Oh and this isn’t a program for beginners. Make sure you are in great shape before attempting this one!

(2) P90X. P90X is a program that has a balance of cardio and resistance training, similar to P90X2, but not as tough. This is for people who are in OK shape and want to lose some weight and get ripped up. There is some jump training (plyometrics), weight lifting, and yes, (gulp) even some Yoga. Come on guys, you could suck it up for an hour a week, right? Anyways, P90X is an amazing program and in my opinion one of the best workouts for men!

(1) Body Beast. Body Beast is a mass gaining program that involves a LOT of weight training, but also comes with an excellent diet and supplement plan as well. If you don’t get stronger and gain mass after going through 90 days, you didn’t do something right! I ended up gaining about 15 lbs after my first round. This, my friends, is why Body Beast is ranked #1 in my best workout programs for men!

All of these programs ROCK, and I hope you found my list of best workout programs for men helpful. If not, oh well! If you have any questions about any of the programs, feel free to reach out to me at trey@treycolbert.com
