Herbalife Products are good for health. But system of marketing is totally bad and worst. Product good but price is too high How poor people can offer per month for this product.
Nonsense we make USA people to become rich. I also did Heralife for over a year and did loose some weight I switched to Wellness Pro and lost a lot more and my wife also started to loose weight as well A way more effective product and tastes a lot better. Marla are you a nutrition expert? I think not or you would know that suralose is a simple artificial sweetener made from sugar but with no calories.
To compare suralose to the drug companies synthetics they use is absurd. I have been taking Herbalife for about a 3 weeks now I have lost 24lbs and 20 inches overall. I have tried many diets and hated them all due to taste, Herbalife tastes good and it works which is more that I can say for the many other diet plans I have tried. Hi berna, i am a distributor for herbalife for about 2 months now, and my husband has list 23 lbs in three weeks!
First of all i suggest u use the 21 day cleansing which gets rid of all the gunk in ur colon, at the same time i suggest u take the shakes and the fiber…. Also download calorie counter in your apps on your phone and set it to and rdi of , that will get you off to a great start. What are you going to do when finally you realize you are spending way too much money on this diet pal? Go back to your old eating habits and regain all the weight?
I used it 15 years ago and have not gained weight back, it actually thought me better eating habits. Yes, exercise is important to any plan. I now coach others, and I love every minute of it! This is not a diet, its a lifestyle. Bro Herbalife end up costing you about three dollars a meal. This is in when you buy it for full retail. If you feel hungrg try drinking alot of water if in 20 min you feel hungry trg eating a very light snack like those kelloggs snacks that has 90 calories and see is that helps.
You need to drink the aloe,tea and shake as ur brkfast , lunch should be based on one protein no red meat until you have reached ur weight that u want one carb and salad the ur other meal dinner repeat the aloe tea and shake. Rem if you drink the shake and then eat u will gain weight. U r sub two meals for the shake. After one week you will stRt the 21 day cleaning.
You can add fruit and ice to your shake and blend it into a smoothie and also you can have a snack in mid morning and midafternoon of protein bar, raw veggies, tuna, hard boiled egg etc. Eliminate these as best you can an you will get faster results. The sensation of being hungry is often tied to the bodies actual need for water. Herbalife, is a supplement to your daily diet and habits. The shake is a meal replacement, it does not mean you should replace all meals. It is recommended that you drink at least 64oz of water a day.
How many people actually do that. I myself am supposed to consume about 85oz, along with about 90g of protein. Figure out the balance. Plus around 2ltrs of water a day. Exactly which herbalife product are you taking?
I am interested in trying the product but do not know which one I should start with. I had a baby last year and it is hard for me to lose the weight. I am trying to lose 40lbs. Christy, would you consider sharing your weight loss enhancers and telling me which ones you used???! I am using herbalife but for 8 days and only lost 6 pounds si far!!! Kristen what products are you using?
Sucrolose is synthesized, thus artificial. It is toxic in large quantities, meaning it is poison!!! Take a few semesters of organic chemistry and biochem…. I just want to say I am not a nutritionist but I am studying for my certification and I am a researcher.
I completed research on the Herbalife shake and found that out of 72 ingredients only 12 were not genetically modified or artificial. Anyone can lose weight if they reduce their calories dramatically and take a cocktail of diuretics 1 to 3 times per day. There is nothing about the Shake. Prolonged usage can cause harm. If you notice you have constant headaches or new allergies it can come from this ball of toxins you mix up everyday.
I know this will make some people mad but we should be concerned about putting things in our body which will truly help it. Also, just to let you know, if you use sucrolose on a regular basis your skin will boil when you spend too much time in the sun. They told me all the products contained raw sugar. Sucralose would definitely be a deal killer for me. Oh I have to make myself eat because this stuff is fo delicious and I feel so full!
Please give me a break. Real weight loss takes a change in your entire lifestyle choices, including excercise, what and how much you eat etc. No supplement is going to give you long term weight loss.
You may lose some weight now but as soon as you back to eating the way you were it will come back on.
Why are people so gullible and naive? Nothing in life is easy or free. I think you and many other people have a general misunderstanding of the Herbalife products. If you have the income to support it, it's fantastic. Worth every penny if you can afford it. But I watched others without my health issues shed easily 10 kg in the first month and feel great for it. I found the consultant I dealt with to be money oriented and it made me uncomfortable.
I later met another consultant that was lovely and in the business for the right reasons. This fellow in totally unprofessional, arrogant, ill-mannered. He is a cheat of the highest degree and sells these products at very exorbitant rates compared to other associates. If confronted, never returns them. Even forcefully sells its products and hardly picks the phone when tried to return them. These Herbalife guys are cheats. Product is good but the associates are very cunning and money minded.
I gave money for a product with one associate in Bangalore and he never delivered the product. I stopped the product itself and moved to Amway. Else you need to be an associate yourself but it is not worth it. I have done business with Herbalife for many years.
Their customer service has gone way downhill in the last year. My credit card company kept blocking my order so I tried to change the card on Herbalife's system but it did not work on the recording.
I was told that it could not be changed. The order was blocked five more times. Herbalife did not even call to let me know. I finally got them to change it but the next month they used my old card and the result was it was blocked again.
You would think I could get help. I waited 30 minutes for a supervisor who then changed the card but I was told my order would take a while to get. They refused to send it out in a quicker way even though it was their fault. I am considering using another company. Thanks for letting me air this complaint. Herbalife is a good product. The formula one, which is your meal supplement, taste more like smoothie than a diet shake.
In overall the products are of good quality. If you take as recommended you should have results. I lost 40lbs my first round, it is a lifestyle change but the results are great. The people who sell it can be a bit pushy but if you overlook that and get to know the products offered you can understand why it has been in business over 30 years.
I tried to support my friend by buying some product. She was close to throwing all her products away since she could not sell it. She spent thousands of dollars and was stuck with the inventory. As for me, I had rectal bleeding for 2 days. I went to my doctor and he couldn't figure out why and we decided to go back to the same diet before Herbalife and my rectal bleeding went away.
I told my friend and she did not believe me and gave me some meal replacement. I was reluctant to take it but tried it again. After two days I was urinating blood and my hemorrhoids returned. I broke out with blisters on my lips. My friend who sold me the product told me her aunt was urinating blood as well so I don't think it was a coincidence. Please avoid this product as much as possible. I need urgently to be help by Herbalife USA as my membership is from there, when I came to South Africa try changing address and send all documents necessary but they insisted that I need it IRS number which I don't have here.
So just like that no more option were given to do transfer. And now I'm about to lose even the faculty to buy because they ask me to listen to a training in the Training Center with we don't have access in this location. So no more Herbalife for me??? It's incredible after almost 12 years of giving to a company.
I was Get Team and this situation only discourages us to try building a business here as was no point. I have always defend Herbalife as I had so good time in Latino America but sad to see a lot of what is sale to promote business as wild wide opportunity is not true!!! I bought some products online from Herbal Canada distributor and I didn't receive it for long period of time hours base on the site. In the web, there isn't any option for contact like fishing sites except an email address never heard back.
When I called main office in Montreal, they couldn't do anything and they confess they don't have any authority or power to do anything. I strongly recommend to prevent putting your time, money and mind on pressure for nothing. I was kg after 2 months, lost 14kg. My father use this shake for control blood sugar. His body weight is idle, only controls blood sugar. It means there is no side effect in this product. Herbalife products are very good for my family.
Herbalife has decent shakes and their teas are good, but the group of people in this business are immature and uneducated! They are selfish and it is all about making money for themselves and not to actually help people with their health issues. I've been doing Herbalife for only a week now and it's amazing how much energy I have. I NEVER exercise but since I've been doing the shakes twice a day and the tea, which I think helps the most, I've been running about three miles a day and hiking in the mornings.
I don't have a scale so I'm not sure if I've lost any weight but I do know that I feel really good and confident and my skin hasn't been breaking out as much I have really bad acne. Also, it all tastes delicious! Update on my review concerning the Herbalife supplements. After a visit to my primary care doctor, I learned that some of the supplements I was using were interacting with the prescription drugs I was taking.
While I still am not convinced my friends are actually going to make any money in this business, the supplements are actually good. Some supplements can cause bad interactions with certain drugs. I have been using Herbalife products on and off for a few years. But, I watched my friends and family members go broke while the "big guys" in this company made money hand over fist! Since starting these products, my energy and mood greatly diminished. At first, I didn't link this to Herbalife.
But, before starting Herbalife, I ate sensibly, took a few Ayurvedic herbal tinctures, and exercised vigorously times a week. My hair was thick and lustrous, and I felt the best I have felt in my life!
After about a year or so on the products, however, I noticed my energy levels were declining, my hair was falling out, and I started having problems with my digestion again. Upon further review of the ingredients in these products, I saw they had a lot of artificial ingredients in them.
I have spent a fortune on these products, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to throw them away and go back to my simple lifestyle; eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, along with vigorous exercise, and meditation practices. Sadly, I feel as though I have lost a lot of ground not to mention money. It will take a lot of time to get my hair back in shape, and my fitness level back to where it used to be.
Herbalife's customer service is extremely lacking, too. They would take forever to deliver my products and didn't even send me an email letting me know they had been shipped. I am so sad and disappointed with this whole experience. I joined Herbalife in January this year, got on trial package on 10th. I lost inches, I felt amazing, they were very positive. I didn't lost anything but water weight, which happened because I started eating right.
Everything was great, I became a member in March, or end of February, I'm not sure. I wasn't sure if I wanted to do it as a business or just stay a VIP client, my mentor, as they call themselves, tricked me into getting into business. I most definitely spend dollars, more or less, in 4 months.
I did see progress, but that was because of healthier diet, not the shake. I started getting hungry, they told me to get proteins to add to the shake, so I did. It tasted sweet, now it started tasting like it got bad. Then they told me to get aloe, I did and added it to my tea, I couldn't drink tea without aloe anymore. I doubt it's a healthy product, and I tell you this as a distributor, as it contains artificial sugars which have a bad impact of your brain from what I know.
But all that aside, the club and the team It was great at first, but I decided to also find tips and workouts online since we only had boot camp twice a week and no one there knew anything about right dieting, so I looked at websites of certified dietitians and nutritionists, and found other kinds of workouts, which makes me think my mentor didn't greet with enthusiasm, her ego is prevailing. I didn't ask her to help me with anything too much, I knew what I was doing and if something wasn't clear I asked, and I didn't go to the STS because I was sick, after which I felt she is keeping me there for volumes.
I started distancing myself from them. My boyfriend visited and we went to see them, all they asked him about was Herbalife. And all their stories come down to or are about Herbalife.
I am all for loving something and enjoying it, but it's consuming people, my sister-in-law is celebrating my niece's birthday a week early so she can attend the STS this month.
And the products are making me sick now, I switched to regular food and eating frequently, doing everything I did except not using Herbalife anymore and I feel great.
All they wanted from me were volumes and money, I got nothing from them. I also "won" a spa day which I still didn't get and I won a t-shirt which I didn't get. I am attending my last event on Sunday and only because I won the pizza party which is occurring after the event, so pizza is the only reason haha. After that, I'm done with them, done with Herbalife. It's a waste of money. There are so many fit and healthy people out there who are using real, clean food.
If they can do it, I can do it. All these promises of trips and obsessing over things they "won" makes me sick. Also, trips they win, they paid for in a way because they have to buy products to collect volumes to qualify. So I don't understand how someone can be so brainwashed. I have had a good experience with using the Herbalife products but I do not do the business. At first I didn't know if I could give up solid food at breakfast, and I don't always give it up, but I surely do enjoy my routine of having a cup of coffee in the morning and then a nice shake to start the day.
I have to admit, I add things to the shake like peanut butter, a banana, or a squirt of flavoring that you use in water bottles to mix it up every now and then.
I am 55 and truly feel like my body responds very well to the Formula One Shakes products. My skin is very healthy, my weight is staying balanced, I have minimal menopause issues, and regarding my hair, I feel like it is thicker than it's ever been. I see that's peculiar because I've read some reviews where people's hair was actually falling out following using the products.
I do not like the tea and don't even like the aloe so I pretty much stick with my shakes and the multivitamin. It's a simple plan but it works for me. When I started on the Herbalife products. The first thing I noticed was headaches and itching. I was breaking out in hives so bad I couldn't sleep at night.
