Herbalife is much more than a range of weight loss products. It is, in fact, a holistic approach to health that centres on a positive attitude, eating habits that meet all your nutritional needs without excess, and a commitment to an active, energetic lifestyle. Weight loss is simply a welcome consequence of practising all three elements in a sustained manner. As a partner to your well-being, Herbalife provides nutrients that your body needs to keep healthy while cutting back on calories.
The 80/20 Rule
Herbalife believes in the 80/20 rule: your body’s well-being is 80% dependent on what you put into it, and 20% dependent on what physical exercise you choose to do with it. As a provider of low calorie, nutrient-rich meal replacements and supplements, Herbalife is a partner in your well-being.
By combining Herbalife’s nutrient-packed Formula 1 meal replacement shakes with a powdered protein supplement, your body is getting a good variety of the nutrition it needs to remain active while lessening calory intake.
Coming in at just 170 calories per serving when mixed with low fat milk, the Herbalife shakes offer the following nutrients:
- 17-18 grams of protein (equivalent to three eggs)
- 350 mg of calcium (as much as 1.5 cups of cottage cheese)
- 3 grams of fibre (about an apple’s worth of fibre)
- 1 750 IU of vitamin A (half a cup of cooked broccoli)
- 15 mg of vitamin C (the equivalent of 2 peaches)
- 5 IU of vitamin E (equivalent to 25 almonds)
In a weight-loss regiment, Herbalife’s nutrients form part of a diet that includes two daily snacks and a normal meal: whereas two of your three daily meals are replaced by a Formula 1 shake (with the addition of powdered protein if necessary), one substantial meal is required.
Suggestions for Your Daily Meal
Of course, the meal should be as healthy as possible and appropriately portioned. A good rule of thumb to follow when cooking your meals is that your plate should be 50% non-starchy veggies, 25% grains or starchy vegetables, and 25% lean protein.
Lean proteins can include fish, lean beef, chicken, lamb, turkey, pork loin, tofu, nuts, eggs, yoghurt, cheese, and lentils. Grains and starchy vegetables can include whole grain wheat, brown rice, rye bread, squash, sweet potato, oatmeal, and quinoa. Non-starchy vegetables include spinach, carrot, broccoli, cucumber, lettuce, green beans, cauliflower, mushrooms, and bell peppers.
In addition to the nutrients in the Herbalife shakes and supplements, a good selection of all the above will help you meet your daily recommended allowances for a balanced, healthy, and nutritious diet.
Add Extra Protein for Satiety
If the Herbalife shakes leave you feeling hungry between meals and snacks, instead of reaching for something unhealthy, rather add Herbalife protein to the Formula 1 shake. The same applies to those who enjoy an active lifestyle. The protein creates satiety, meaning that your stomach will feel full for longer periods of time.
