I shared two great weight loss tips with you yesterday, and here are some more for today to help you maintain your health and to benefit your slimming process.
3. Have a snack
I have spoken to many people who said that their most difficult part of the day to keep from snacking is from 16h00 until dinner. Often you get home, ravenous, have a glass of wine and snack on chips, last night’s leftovers and probably anything you can find. Then when dinner comes, you are not even hungry anymore and already feel tired and heavy from all the carbs you snacked on.
A midmorning snack is good, but an afternoon snack is essential. After five to six hours of no nourishment, your blood sugar falls and you start craving food, lot’s of food!
A good snack contains fibre and protein to help sustain you. It should be small and could be some walnuts, cranberries, an apple, piece of cheese or biltong
Herbalife offers a very convenient snack in the form of delicious Protein Bars. Available in 3 different flavours, the healthy bars are a great alternative to sustain you between meals.
4. Fill up on the vegetables
Think of your dinner as a pyramid. The vegetables should form the base, lean protein the next level and carbohydrates the small apex. Unfortunately most of us eat it the other way around. Starches are less filling and less nutritious than veggies or protein, and therefore should be kept to a minimum.
When you follow the Herbalife Weight loss eating plan, you will be replacing two meals a day with your Herbalife Shake. Your third meal should be a healthy third meal. Clients often ask me what this healthy third meal means. My answer is, whether this meal is breakfast, lunch or dinner, follow the pyramid principle with eating a lot of vegetables and salads in a variety of colours, about 100-125g of lean protein and a small serving of low GI carbohydrates. Keep your food interesting and stimulating, and give attention while you eat in order to satisfy all your senses.
The Herbalife Weight loss plan diet shakes include Nutritional Shake Mix and Protein Powder plus Multivitamin and Fibre & herb supplements. Further supplements from the range can also be chosen according to your needs.

Want to get slimmer and feel healthier fast? Here are a few guidelines to help you make some easy changes that will benefit you to lose excess weight!
Tip 1: Ensure that you get at least 8g of fibre for breakfast
Experts recommend that women should consume 30-35g of fibre daily. However, most women don’t even get 10g! Fibre is a powerful tool as it is a bulky substance and keeps you feeling full and satisfied. It is also responsible for sending the “I am full” signals to your brain. Fibre also assists in healthy digestion and removing toxins from the body.
Fibre is key to reducing weight and if you are able to get enough fibre at breakfast, the rest of the day should be much easier! Fruit and vegetables does not have as much fibre as one would imagine and therefore you either need to obtain the fibre from a supplement, and or from fibre-rich grains.
By enjoying a Herbalife Healthy Breakfast, you will meet your fibre needs. The following products will assist:
- Herbalife Fibre & Herb tablets contains fibre and herbs to help detox the body and provide sufficient fibre intake
- Herbalife Lipobond tablets (the cheater’s delight) – helping to move fats out of the body
- Herbalife Nutritional Shake Mix contains soluble fibre as well as healthy sources of protein and carbohydrates. The Cookies & Cream flavour is highest on fibre of all the flavours as it contains real cookie pieces.
Tip 2: Plan your go-to meals
It probably often happens that you only have 5 minutes to run out and get something for lunch or your breakfast rush to get the family ready does not leave time to prepare breakfast for yourself. If you don’t have your ‘go-to’ options planned upfront the chances are very high that you will reach for that slice of pizza, doughnut, chips, or whatever is closest and seems most satisfying. By having a go-to plan where you can get a healthy meal, you are setting yourself up to succeed.
In my lifetime I have not found a better ‘go-to’ product than my Herbalife Nutritional Shake Mix. It is the easiest way to get a full 5-course meal, whist feeling healthy, energised and satisfied after having it. Mix your breakfast and lunch shake in one go to save even more time.
Maximise your shake mix by mixing in your Thermojetics Herbal Beverage (to burn extra centimetres) and Herbal Aloe Concentrate (to soothe digestion).
Herbalife Shake Mix can also now be purchased in convenient one serving sachets (only Vanilla flavour available); making it easier to ensure you always have shake mix with you when you travel, or have a sachet or two at work. This is a great go-to plan.
