Herbalife Diet Review For Weight Loss
May 8, 2017
Herbalife is a global nutrition and weight management company that develops protein shakes, weight loss supplements, energy products and a skin and hair product line.
Herbalife was founded by entrepreneur Mark Hughes and has over three million independent distributors selling its products in over 90 countries. Herbalife boasts a huge and ever-expanding following, an active social media community, and a number of high-profile sponsorship deals.
How Herbalife Works:
According to Herbalife reviews the weight loss program is comprised of protein shakes, weight loss supplements and teas. Herbalife replaces certain meals with its own meal-replacement protein shakes to induce weight loss.
08:00 Breakfast — Formula 1 chocolate shake with skim milk and half a banana
11:00 Snack — Medium apple
13:30 Lunch — Grilled chicken breast with vegetables and whole wheat bread
17:00 Snack — Can of tuna and iceberg salad
20:00 Dinner — Formula 2 vanilla shake with skimmed milk and half a banana
The supplements and teas supplement this meal.
The program is very practical, considering the products are easily accessible.
The diet is prescriptive, leaving little room for indecisiveness.
It is likely to result in short-term weight loss.
Low-fat and very low-calorie diets are no longer recommended as the most effective or sustainable approaches to weight loss.
The HerbaLife shakes only contain nine grams of protein each. That’s less than half the protein content recommended for a standard meal.
This is a calorie-restricted diet.
Impractical considering the finances. Especially if doing it long-term.
Restrictive in nature.
Herbalife products are highly processed and contain ingredients such as artificial colors, flavors, fructose and sucralose.
Many dietitian and health professionals do not recommend liquid meal substitutes as it’s a poor choice when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. Focusing on improving the balance of diet is more effective than protein shakes such as HerbaLife. The weight loss is short-term and sometimes can also result in more harm than good.
