Herbalife Review – Does This Weight Loss Program Work? Are price and taste deal breakers?

PUBLISHED: 08/07/2015 | BY: TORY GRAY, SENIOR REVIEWER
Editor's Review: 3.4 / 5.0

herbalife-product-imageHerbalife is one of the more popular supplement lines, so we decided to dive deep into the products. We pored through ingredients, cost and customer experiences to find out what the hype was all about. After gathering all that information, we condensed it so you have the most important info.

EDITOR’S TIP: Combine Herbalife with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

Herbalife is a supplement company with products for weight-loss and overall health. The supplements contain protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and, in some cases, caffeine. We could not find a complete list of ingredients for the weight-loss program. There are four elements to quick-start – Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3 and Herbal Tea Concentrate. You have to take them all for optimal results, but at least they are portable.

Herbalife entered the supplement market in 1980. You can order products from a member or via online retailers. We like Herbalife’s positive BBB rating and the length of time in the business, but read on…

Price – “Wow!”

The first thing that caught our eye about Herbalife was the price. The quick-start program cannot be purchased from the official website, so we searched online retailers for the individual products. You will spend upwards of $92 to $95 each month and that’s just the starter package. If you replace more than one meal with the protein powder the price goes up. “Using meal-replacement shakes to lose weight is an effective option,” according to our Research Editor. “The problem with Herbalife comes with the high price tag. You can purchase similar weight-loss shakes for a fraction of the cost.

“Whatever you do, do NOT try Herbalife. It will drain your bank account and you will gain weight,” says a dieter.

Another dieter claims, “It’s an overpriced sugary weak protein powder.”

Try scrolling down to see a product we consider one of the best of 2015.

Taste – “Not So Great”

We found hundreds of product reviews complaining of Herbalife’s taste. Most dieters couldn’t make it past the first shake. “French Vanilla…not even close. This product tastes like chalk…Nothing makes it taste good,” offers up one dieter.

Another consumer says, “Disgusting…hate the taste, I can’t even choke it down.” Yet another claims, “This drink tastes like…liquid play-doh…It’s really bad.”

Based on our research, if a just one part of a diet program causes problems, the chance for long-term success diminishes. If Herbalife tastes as bad as dieters claim, this could be an issue.

The Science

If you’re looking for science to back up weight-loss claims, you won’t find any from Herbalife. The ingredients are not listed on the official website, so the dieter can’t even look for relevant clinical studies. At DietSpotlight, we look at research as an integral part of the equation. If there is no support, that’s when we start wondering about a product.

The Bottom Line

We took pleasure in reviewing Herbalife products. We like the fact that the company has been around for more than 30 years and has a strong BBB rating. What bothers us is the high price and terrible taste, so we can’t suggest the supplements. We’re also concerned about the lack of clinical support.

If it’s time to shed off the weight, why not try out a supplement delivering a great price, clinically-supported ingredients and good customer reviews?

Leptigen is one of the best products we’ve seen on the market. The four-ingredient proprietary blend is clinically shown to spark metabolism, help boost fat loss and break through weight-loss plateaus. No negative side effects are mentioned by dieters and reviews show fantastic results.

Leptigen is guaranteed, but on top of that the company is offering a special trial offer – always a good thing.

What You Should Know

Click Here To See Our Highest Rated Review

Herbalife is a company that began 33 years ago with a “mission for nutrition,” according to the company website. Today, Herbalife has more than a million distributors worldwide, offering the line of Herbalife to people who want to lose weight and look and feel better. The weight management line consists of meal programs and supplements that can help dieters achieve their weight loss goals more efficiently. Supplements include those for appetite suppression, metabolism boosters and enhancers. While we appreciate that Herbalife appears to offer something for everyone, we prefer a single formula that can effectively meet all three of these needs for convenience and cost friendliness to the consumer.

The Herbalife products are sold through independent distributors and through some online retailers. We were unable to find the products for sale on the company website. To connect with a distributor in your area, you must first supply information about how you learned about the company. There is also information available on the company website about how to become a distributor.

Ingredients

For the purpose of this review, we will take a look at one Herbalife weight loss supplement, Total Control. This product claims to boost metabolism and aid in weight loss without irritability or restlessness. The ingredients in this formula include calcium, green tea leaves extract, dried ginger root extract, dried theobroma extract, dried yerba mate extract, astragalus, celery, fennel, hawthorne berry, licorice, marshmallow, parsley, suma, dried cinnamon extract and alfalfa.

Product Features

Herbalife offers a 30-day money back guarantee on all purchases. It also provides ample information about the science and research that goes into its formulas. In addition, we found customer testimonials that back the claims of the products. This is the type of information that we encourage consumers to look for; because it shows that the company has confidence in their products.

While we are pleased to see healthy ingredients on the list, the large number may reduce the potency of the active ingredients. Green tea is the only serious weight loss ingredient in the formula. The substance can boost the metabolism and suppress appetite. However, green tea is more effective with other weight loss ingredients like chromium and safe stimulants. We don’t see any other active weight loss ingredients on the list.

Advantages

  • Herbalife is a proven company with a long reputation.
  • The products are reasonably priced and come with a money back guarantee.

Disadvantages

  • Herbalife Total Control does not contain many weight loss ingredients.
  • The large number of ingredients may reduce the potency of the formula.
  • Products are not available for sale through the company website.

Conclusion

Herbalife is a reputable company with a relatively long history of providing weight loss and nutritional supplements. However, we are skeptical whether the long formulas and lack of active ingredients will really be the most effective way of dropping the pounds. We believe that other options filled with more potent ingredients may be a better choice.

    The reason Herbalife doesn’t sell on the website an only through a distributor is because not like any other nutrition company, when you purchase from Herbalife, you get a wellness coach that will be available to help you and motivate you to reach your weight goal.

    Pete

    LISTEN TO ME, EVERYONE!! You have to stop taking Herbalife products IMMEDIATELY! Read on to find out what happened to me and my wife!

    I started taking the products a little over a month now. First it started with the tea and aloe, then the tabs, and finally the shakes and bars. The side effects from these products are NOTICEABLE and APPARENT.

    Within a week I had already dropped some weight (which was concerning) and my skin started to feel a lot less oily. My blood pressure has plummeted from 155/95 on average to 117/75 on average which of course has my doctor all pissed off since I’ve kicked my BP pills to the curb (something he couldn’t do in 5+ years of drug therapy). I wouldn’t recommend having your blood pressure at normal levels, it’s really not very popular these days and you might get some strange looks from the neighbors.

    My sleep is undisturbed throughout the night, which is a BIG problem. You see I used to rely on getting up 5 or 6 times a night. Hell, I get a lot done when I can’t sleep, so that’s been annoying.

    The real kicker though is my energy level. Having all these pesky vitamins and antioxidants is screwing with my body. Having all this energy makes me get up and do things, and that causes me to miss my favorite shows! Gah!

    My wife has been experiencing similar symptoms. Blood pressure is normalized, weight is going down, energy is going up, oh and one more thing… Sex. Yeah I said it, sex is a lot more frequent and a LOT more fun. Oh the horror, I know. I am 40 years old and I’m going at it like a teenager. Someone is bound to lose an eye, it happens all the time.

    Oh and if that wasn’t enough, these products are ADDICTIVE! Yeah, that’s not something you’ll find them talking about. They are addictive. Getting up in the morning and getting ready is all about a boost of healthy energy and it gets to the point where you look forward to getting up and having your shake and tea! Unacceptable!! These things are SUPPOSED to be hard to deal with; otherwise we go down the slippery slope of enjoyment and fulfillment from a herbal product line. That’s crap on a stick, mate!

    Bottom line is this, you pay good money for these products and all they do is make you lose things. You lose weight, you lose blood pressure, you lose fatigue, you lose the depression, you lose anxiety, you lose the old you.

    What you’re left with is a healthier, happier, more productive, better looking you, and no one wants to see that.

    So I say to you, the skeptic looking for answers from an anonymous online forum; take the products, lose the weight and feel great, get back off the products and start eating fast food again so you can blame the products when the weight and fatigue returns. It’s the popular thing to do.

    To be honest, reading all of the above. Its really what works for YOU individually. One product may work wonders for one person, but may not for another. This can be due to personal tastes and preferences, as well as lifestyle choices.
    The best advice would be to seek nutritional advice from a professional if you don’t think shakes are for you, so that you can make the appropriate dietary and lifestyle adjustments. :-)

    Just started Herbalife. Drink two shakes, plus two teas each day at both breakfast and lunch.

    Is it wrong to be also eating a very light breakfast (banana) and lunch (salad with some chicken or tuna)? Also, have been lifting and walking 10 miles a week while on this.

    [Reply]

    yeah it wrong.
    you dont eay mango banana on this diet.
    its your shake in the morning and then your lunch and again shake..nothing else soon after and before your shakes.. if.your hungry then fruits..
    i started herbalife life and lost 2kg in 4 days.

    [Reply]

    angie s

    No its not wrong. Dont deprive yourself of healthy stuff. You will fail. If you dont eat food you will put it all back on when you stop the shakes. Do you really plan on shakes the rest of your life? I do 2 shakes a day, soup as a snack and a meal full of veggies and chicken or fish. Lost 9 lbs in a week. Even had a kit kat..

    So were the pills mandatory to help aid you with the weight loss or will the shakes, healthy eating and exercise be sufficient? I ask, because as silly as it may sound, I cannot swallow pills. So before I begin this I wonder what exactly to purchase.

    Everytime I drink my herbal life shake, formula 1 healthy meal, I feel. Nauseous like I need to throw up. What does that mean??

    [Reply]

    Diane

    If you take your shake in the morning, it would be wise to drink at least 8oz of water before, as your body dehydrates during the night. If you drink your shake without drinking water first, your body tries to take all the moisture from the shake which then makes it harder to go through your digestive system and makes you feel nauseous. Talk to your coach. They will help you through this feeling, as the benefits are far more valuable than the feeling of nauseousness. :)

    I have been taking Herbalife sense June 4, 2011 & by Christmas time I had lost 102 pounds. I did the shake for breakfast and dinner, two snacks of 3 hard boiled eggs or a package of flavored tuna (90 calories for 15g protein), and for lunch I had meal of 2 skinless chicken breast & a bag a vegetables. The first 6 weeks I lost 32.3 pounds, then the next six weeks I lost 33. I did exercise while doing herbalife but due to my starting weight of 375 pounds I was scared of exercise but then I found out that swimming works your whole body and takes pressure off your joints, and you don’t sweat when you are in the water. So Swimming was my exercise until it got cold then I would park far way & walk where ever I needed to go or ride my bike. At certain times of my journey I was hungry that’s when I started taking the Prolesa and total control. OMG I had to remind myself to eat, that has never happened to me in my life b4. I am still doing the same things (LIFE STYLE CHANGE! I made & feel Great) I have lost 165 pounds in 10 months. I learned a lot of information of how to eat better by going to the nutritional club classes. Its not just a product but the people that help you by giving information that has helped them on their weight lost journey. I did take supplements (multivitamin, total control, cellulose, calcium, flora fiber, amonigen, & cell activator but I didn’t pay for them I won them for attending classes. I did pay for the prolesa & I have & will buy more. I also paid for the cleanser which helped make me regular in the bathroom. Herbalife has changed my life and I recommend it to everyone I talk to because it worked for me and could work for them. Oh I should have mentioned that I have diabetes and for months now I have not had to take any insulin or pills, just herbalife diet and exercise.

    So were the pills mandatory to help aid you with the weight loss or will the shakes, healthy eating and exercise be sufficient? I ask, because as silly as it may sound, I cannot swallow pills. So before I begin this I wonder what exactly to purchase.

    Hi Marie,
    Yes the pills are mandatory, but as they are not medicine and just vitiamins they can be crushed and taken with water :)

    If you really cannot afford to spend money on dietary supplements then juice! I have been juicing fruits and veggies for the past three weeks and have lost eight pounds. I was already within my normal body weight though. eating merely fruits and veggies is inexpensive an detoxifies your body. Watch this Documentary called “fack, sick, and nearly dead”. It is very inspiring! Good luck to all the weight loss aficionados.

    I just attended a herbalife seminar and yes, to gain weight you do 3, 3 and 3. You supplement 3x a day, drink shakes 3x a day and have meals 3x a day. The supplements were herbalife also. Look for a distributer in your area – most have ‘health clubs’ now and can give you more info. Myself, not a fan, but if you already have the stuff…..

    “I was introduced to this product by signing up for the HerbaLife Ultimate Shapeworks plan. Although I am mostly pleased with the other products in this kit, I was shocked when I carefully read the ingredient list (of course, after getting home). The second ingredient listed is sugar in the form of fructose. The protein source is from Soy which the most recent research indicates that soy is not only detrimental to your hormone/endocrine system but mostly importantly that 95% of the worlds Soy is genetically modified. You can purpose non-GM Soy products in health food stores but there is nothing to indicate that the Soy used in this product is not genetically modified. The third ingredient is Corn Bran (another highly genetically modified product). The ingredient list continues to list other fillers and additives. I was prompted to look more closely at the ingredient list after my first shake b/c the shake was WAY TOO SWEET. I am not a hater of carbohydrates but I would prefer to incorporate more complex carbs into my diet vs. simple sugars that affect insulin and blood sugar levels. After much research on internet, I was able to replace this product with a much more heathful alternative (Jay Robb Whey Protein) that uses Whey protein and contains no sugars or fillers. And the taste is much better. Now I can trade off the 26 grams of simple carbs in the Herbalife product with more satisfying complex carbs. Simplly speaking, this company (HerbaLife) started in the 80’s and seems to be stuck with the 80’s research that Soy is beneficial. Anyone up on current nutrition will know that Soy should be avoided.”

    I use and distribute Herbalife. I have quit the distribution part of it as I find it unrealistic. Further, do not get sucked into their HOM meetings. They advertise them as “come learn about the products” when the whole day is preaching to you about the business with maybe 1 hour devoted to the actual products and results. I refuse to go to any more because they are the same rhetoric each time and I feel sorry for the person who genuinely came to learn about the health benefits of the products. Their main focus is making you into a supervisor so your upline and Herbalife make money. Your upline makes minimal money off what you buy and sell, however when you are a supervisor they can make royalties of the $$ you make. Furthermore, they set up exclusive training events that are only for supervisors as a means to “drive” you to become one. However, these training events teach you nothing new but how to recruit and make more money. I found, in my experience, that most people became supervisors by spending the money ($5000) themselves as getting someone to purchase that much takes some time and a lot of effort. There are SOME people who have the talent of selling anything and are successful at making this amount, however for the average joe, its not ideal. Thus, most people go into debt just to receive the supervisor status. I like the products, I do not like how they advertise them. They say they are all about better health and nutrition, yet when you actually sign up (even for the discount) you end up being sucked into trainings which do nothing but push the business. Furthermore, as some have indicated above, Herbalife can have contradictions with some medications. Some people should not be taking certain things. HOWEVER, this is not taught when you are a distributor nor are you given any training on who would benefit from what product and who not to give what to whom. I feel you might be walking a dangerous line with all the many health concerns out there, you may be making them sicker. No one is educated on the actual products, ingredients, or health risks. One trainer told me “I dont want to sit in a classroom to learn out nutrition. Why would I when I can sell Herbalife without having to spend money and go to school”. Now thats ignorance if you ask me. But I guess they do put a legal disclaimer on their products and an extensive legal team, so if you do happen to harm someone, you can just play stupid.

    I am just starting the Herbalife products. My mom used it for some time and lost a good amount of weight. More importantly, she had increased energy and her regular aches and pains seemed to disappear. She is in her 60’s and has always had a problem with her weight which caused several medical conditions. She seemed to be doing very well on these products which at first I teased her about and now I think, heck maybe I need to try this. I have gained about 60 pounds in the past 4-5 years. I have a lot of stress due to my line of business and unlike most, I think my weight gain is more so because I do not eat vs I eat too much. I usually eat one meal a day because I get so busy with work, I forget to eat. My usual meal intake would consist of coffee in the morning and dinner at night. Most of the time a late meal. I am extremely dissatisfied with my weight. It is definitely affecting my self esteem not to mention my physical relations. My question is, how exactly should I use these products and what products should I use to see the most weight loss results. For those of you saying, “You have to exercise”, I will if I can get some damn energy. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

    Is herbalife liftoff a possible and safe solution? If so, is there a credible source (article, etc.) that can prove its safety, since my parents do not trust these artificial things?

    honestly this works, but it will only work if you take it everysingle day. i honestly don’t want to depend on this for the rest of my life throwing away money after money because im too lazy to go to the gym. i took for six months and since i didnt own the product i had to pay for it daily . and since i took it twice a day i had to pay the same amount twice. after a while you jut realize that money couldve been spent somewhere else. so i stopped. it helps but it doesnt actually help you control your hunger. if you want to depend on this product for the rest of your life then so be it. i rather go back to the old fashion way by eating healthy & working out.

    It would have been far cheaper for you to have gone to someone in the nutrition club(assuming this is where you bought your product) and asked how to make your own shakes/smoothies. The price of a shake when bought and made at home is right around $3 a day. also, if you continued to use the product and was dedicated to it, you could sign up yourself to become an “individual distributor” and get a 25% discount off of all your purchases.

    I am on the plan two weeks, I started at 156lbs, I am 5ft 3 inches, lost 3 lbs the first week and nothing the second. Feel deflated, if I “cut down” for a few weeks myself at home I would probably have lost 3lbs. I feel full on this diet, one shake in the morning, one for lunch, NOTHING in between, no snacks, bars etc. Then a healthy dinner and no snacking afterwards, so hunger not an issue, going to try for another two weeks but if no more success then back to Weight Watchers I think! Any one have similar experience who are the same starting weight/height as me?

    It is important to keep your blood sugar lvl on a constant line,therefore,you should have 3 balanced meals,and 2 snacks…that way you eliminate the feeling of being hungry when you are on a weight loss plan…

    In a case of strong overweight,it’s preferable to substitute the breakfast,and dinner with shakes,and do a balanced lunch with a normal meal…depending of course of your eating habits,time and activity.

    Considering your health is something ppl do not do 2 day in a very high speed environment… A weight loss plan,or a healthy eating,is the Best investment you can ever do for your self.. So don’t be skeptical RuBii, don’t just consider your weight on the scale….Take a tight piece of clothes,push your self into that one,and after a week,do the test again,even if your weight hasn’t started to change,for sure your size has…consider to do a minimum activity for 30-60 minutes a day..drink your tea,water and 2 “healthy snacks” fruit,or protein bar..don’t eat to late in the evening 19.30 and after that if again hungry,have a tea…

    Only you can decide if you want to lose weight,so you have to be determined…for sure it isn’t easy,but I’m sure you can do it! Would love to hear your news.

    I took 2 days of herbalife and im extremely hungry, Hello this product makes you take 3 set of pills a day about 11 pills a day it is extremly harsh! I felt okay but fatigue when I started working out to boost in the weight lost. It is true, what will you as a person do after yous top taking the shake and the extreme pills? You need to change the way you eat and stop with these diet strategies. My boyfriends friend is a fitness freak. He said that although it may not be extremly bad but how far can you take shakes and replacing your meals? You need to jsut change your ways of eating now it is never to late. People take supplement shakes to lose weight fast. It does not work that way at all.

    Im not sure what you mean by that, but the facts are I have multiple clients and distributors that have amazing results with healthy testimonials. The shakes the masses has been taught about are not the same, nutritionally, or product wise- the only similarity is the word shake. If you are having concerns on supplements feel free to ask more quesitons. The only supplement you take is a multi vitamin-and all doses are FDA regulated and BSCG tested

    can anyone help to explain why there is no control of pricing for Herbalife products? Thought an established MLM company should standardize the pricing, like AMWAY. We can find different offer or promotion pricing of Herbalife products from eBay and other online store…it makes me wonder it is the right MLM company to join and whether any control on the product quality. Look like Herbalife just wanted to push the products to consumers, without care of the product pricing and quality? Why no one from Herbalife looking into it?

    [Reply]

    Coach Thompson

    Some choose to sell at retail, some choose to offer their discount to the public. This isn’t any different than any other MLM where you have independent distributors. I don’t see how finding different priced products could lead you to believe that they don’t have quality control in their products, but then again your name is confusion, so what are we to expect?

    Side Effects
    • According to a consumer report, some people may experience skin rashes with Herbalife products. Skin irritation is a possible side effect of ingesting silicon dioxide, although most people are able to consume it without a problem. The side effects of lead poisoning are well known. The extensive list of possible complications includes: behavior or attention problems, kidney damage, slowed body growth, anemia, constipation, difficulty sleeping, headaches, irritability and low appetite and energy.
    Last year I got the skin rash and over a month now I have been in pain, do to the lead poisoning. I will stop using all products.

    I have been using Herbalife for 2 years now and last month I got really sick. I am still trying to find out the real cause of my weakness. Last year I also got the rash all over my body, just like Kim Kardashian and I got treated for it and it took a long time for them to go away. Now I have muscle cramps, weakness, confusion, nausea, depression, loss of memory and it has been happening for over a month now. I am too weak to go to work sometimes. I have gone to many doctors appointments and we don’t have a lead on this, but I will request for a lead poisoning on my next doctor’s appointment to see if we can come to a conclusion. I will STOP using Herbalife immediately and I suggest you will do the same. I got a $400 supply that arrived to the home last month. What am I going to do with this garbage! I it strange that the two mayor reaction is a skin rash and lead poisoning. I got both of them, because I have been blinded by loosing weight.
    NOTE: I lost 38 pounds, but have already gained 10 back. STOP USING ANY PRODUCTS….

    I did Herbalife for a year lost 75lbs, but once I started eating normal food I started to put the weight back on. So I lost 20 more lbs and once I finished herbalife. I quit taking the shakes and pills put my self on a 1500 calorie meal plan and do 30-60 min of cardio 4-5 days a week and strength training. Now I dont gain any weight. So you just gotta learn how to repair your metabolism so your not stuck doing Herbalife for the rest of your life.

    Herbalife is great. I’ve been on it for about 1 1/2 and lost 6 lbs. and gained lean muscle. Before using Herbalife I was on a plateau doing 4 Hour Body by Tim Ferriss, which is a very strict diet. I couldn’t do it any more. A lot of people are saying they’re starting to get hungry. Once your body gets use to eating the 5-6 meals a day your metabolic rate is picking back up and your energy increases. If you get hungry eat fruit, veggies. Those who are gaining weight probably aren’t following the plan right. Eat every 3 hours but if you are hungry pick on string cheese, almonds, or fruit or even half of a protein bar. It is VERY important to drink water. You need to keep hydrated. It is recommended to drink half of your body weight or at least 6 to 8 cups of water.

    I am skeptical about using these supplements but I’m desperate. I bought these products a long time ago and I don’t remember the instructions =( I am well over 100lbs overweight and I have the Tea concentrate, N-R-G Tea, Herbal aloe concentrate, Protein mix, and meal shake mix… HELP!!!

    [Reply]

    Ann

    Hi RuBii,sad to hear you didn’t go on your weight plan…where did you get the products from? No personal contact with a distributor? They can always help you out…
    It is important to know all essential data from each person,to make your weight plan..

    My suggestion would be,since I saw that you have the basic products…
    Breakfast= aprox 125 ml water,mix in Herbal Aloe,depending on ur taste,from 15-25 ml aloe…my self I use 250 ml water,but that is me.
    A cup of Herbal tea,the tea helps your body with antioxidants,and speeding up metabolism,(based on green tee)

    Shake…250 ml liquid,depending on your taste,can be mixed with water,soya milk,rice milk,almond milk,juice etc etc,make sure to use unsweetened liquid mix it with 2 spoons of formula 1 powder(30ml) + depending of your need 1 spoon of personalized protein powder.

    That is your breakfast,normally here you will also add the fibers,multivitamin,mineral etc tab….between meals ,drink Water!

    I started Herbalife 7 months ago and I have lost 46 pounds. I dont do pills so all I have done is the one to two shakes a day and protein powder and sometimes I dont even do the one shake a day. The program that I went to that taught me about Herbalife also teaches classes on healthy habits and eating and they dont push you into it if you dont want to or cant afford it. It has changed my life.

    Way to go Christina! I’ve been on the Herbalife Ultimate program for 10 days and lost 6 lbs. I have energy to spare. I think that most of the questions can be answered on the herbalife website or by asking your distributor.
    As far as expense. I am saving money taking herbalife. I no longer need my midmorning redbull and afternoon specialty coffee. My grocery bill has gone from $250 a week to $125. Price of the Ultimate Program $214.40 for a month supply for one person. I bought one for my husband You do the math. We mix it with soy milk, almond milk or fruit juices and fresh fruit Deicious!

    I just started using the shake and tea with aloe yesterday. I usually have no problems sleeping, but I hardly got any sleep last night. I slept maybe 30 to 45 minutes. Also I had the runs through most the day. I took it exactly how my coach told me to. Two shakes a day (breakfast and dinner) my hot tea in the morning, a good healthy lunch, and small snacks in between if needed. Also a gallon of water mixed with a tablespoon of the tea and 4 capfulls of the aloe mango (finish before 3 pm) and anothe half gallon of plain water. I also had diarrhea all day yesterday. Is all this normal? Is there something I should change right away?

    [Reply]

    Heather C

    I see that no one has responded to this. Are you still having issues? Sometimes your body can react to the protein at first, it will get used to it. The tea also has caffeine which might cause that if you don’t normally consume it daily. Let me know if you are still having issues. You may need to add aminogen in there.

    Yes of course you can!!
    formula1 strawberry flavor and snack defense are best for you because they have more chromium.
    Why chromium ,because studies have shown that taking chromium supplements will help your pancreas start producing insulin.Our low carb. high protein nutrition will help you with your weight problems.WE ARE NOT MEDICINE but by giving your body the nutrientes its lacking you will be surprised the results you will have. It is real simple common sense give your body the nutrients its not getting from your regular food and you will feel and look better.Dont let the product do all the work you have to do your share ok.If you need my help im willing to work with! Dont let the negativity of other people affect you! And for the other people that are saying bad stuff about my product there are only 3 reasons why they say that.#1 because they do not understand the product.#2 they dont beleive what we say,they cant visualize them self living a healthier life . #3 they do understand ,they believe but they don’t have the money to buy it,because they give priority to material stuff and think there health is not important.Listen no matter who you are as you treat your body from young is how your body is going to respond when you get older.Good luck to everyone.

    Cheenu, if you feel hungry you may want to add another scoop of the protein powder. Remember that protein is the building block of the body. Adding more protein to your shake will not only help with your hunger/cravings but also your muscle mass. And the more lean muscle you build the more calories you burn. Its basic nutrition. HBLF makes it that easy. Shake+Protein=Full Meal….

I also go to the gym 4-5 days a week. During the week I prepare a shake for breakfast and another for lunch then have a healthy meal at night.

    Dear Herbalife team,
    Will you please help and guide me before using and selling this product I read the site Herbalife Problems
    By Tracey Allison Planinz, eHow Contributor….says….
    “There is also the potential of interactions with prescription drugs, so it is important to contact your physician or pharmacist before starting this or any other type of weight loss program.Many Herbalife products contain silicon dioxide (silica), a common food additive found in many commercially processed foods. Additionally, a medical report in Bio-Medicine revealed that Herbalife was found to contain high levels of lead. While these additives can be ingested safely in minute quantities, large quantities of silica and lead, or even small amounts taken over a long period of time, can be toxic.
    The side effects of lead poisoning are well known. The extensive list of possible complications includes: behavior or attention problems, kidney damage.” is this fact?????

    Absolutely agree. Though this company has many good products, I try to aim for pure and/or hypoallergenic products and this is not one of them. This product is not organic, non-GMO, nor diary/soy/gluten free. It does contain Artificial sweetener (ie. Acesulfame Potassium), fillers, artificial color (ie. yellow #6), and caffeine which gives a false sense of “energy”. The caffeine in one Liftoff (their “energy drink”) is 75mg which is equivalent to two cans of coke/pepsi.

    Hi Laura,
    NRG and Herbalife energy products contain caffeine. The caffeine is in the form of pekoe (black tea), guarana (a Brazilian caffeinated fruit, like the kola nut) and unknown sources or “natural” caffeine which could be extracted from coffee. One LIFTOFF has 75mg of caffeine which is like 2 cans of pepsi/coke.

    LIFTOFF says in the fine print that it is NOT indicated for ANYONE on blood thinners.

    I find it very interesting that Herbalife uses the artificial sweetner Suralose in it’s Healthy Meal replacement Shake and an Artificial flavoring in that same mix. My question is “How” do you mix ANY thing artificial with herbs and “Call” it HEALTHY?? If you check the labels of it’s various products you’ll see that most of them have some type of either Artifical sweetner or Artificial flavoring. That’s the same practice of the Drug companies adding herbs to their drugs and calling it healthy. Anything Artifical in food comsumption has NO nutritional value, Nor is it Healthy!!!

    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 1200, 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? healthy eating (diet) and exercise is the secretto staying at a desirable weight without braking the bank on “miracle weight loss products”

    unfortunately not everyone has strong will power. And believe me its better than the junk you get in the fast food places under “value” meals. I used it 15 years ago and have not gained weight back, it actually thought me better eating habits.

    Mike Baldwin

    What “miracle weight loss products?” All Herbalife does is provide your body with nutrition, the body does the rest. Yes, exercise is important to any plan. I’ve been taking the products for almost 5 years, lost 38lbs in just under 3 months and I’ve kept it off thanks to Herbalife, my weight loss coach, and myself. I now coach others, and I love every minute of it!

    Brendon

    This is not a diet, its a lifestyle. UCLA did a study, it would take a person to intake 3000 calories of whole foods per day to receive everything that we get in herbalife, so unfortunately anyone on herbalife doesnt “hit and quit” they take it for life.

    Bro Herbalife end up costing you about three dollars a meal. This is in 2013 when you buy it for full retail. If you have been taking it for a while you most likely are getting a discount anywhere from 25% to 50% off retail. that means you could get this for about 1.50a meal..plus even a little money in your pocket.

    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

    fatima

    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

    margaret shock

    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. and colorful dinner and protein.

    I’m sorry but this is a moronic comment. The shake is not meant for you to just drink and expect that your fat ass won’t be hungry again.

    Salt and sugar in the body create the feeling of “craving” food. Eliminate these as best you can an you will get faster results.

    Another fact. The sensation of being hungry is often tied to the bodies actual need for water. Consume more water, less salt and sugar and you will find that you are “hungry” less often.

    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. Don’t sit your fat ass there and be like I drank 2 shakes and 3 aloe shots and in still hungry. If that’s the case please add ice to your 16oz of vegetable oil, chug and then proceed to eat 2 big macs and 3 bacon cheeseburgers, because you have 0 will power!

    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.

    I would suggest the Formula 1 Nutritional Shake, Formula 2 Multivitamin, Formula 3 Cell Activator and add Prolessa Duo which is GREAT for Baby Belly.

    Sucrolose is synthesized, thus artificial. Roughly 50% is metabolized by the liver, where as the rest is pretty much excreted. 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. THIS STUFF IS NOT SAFE FOR CONSUMPTION…

    Anonymous

    I have done research on sucrose in my Nutrition Class, and I agree it’s not safe in 1937 it was found to cause cancer in lab rats, in high doses, out side the United States it is banded for usage, it’s great to loss weight, but at what cost,eating fruits and vegetables in proper portions, and limiting your meat intake, and proper exercise, is the still the best life style.

    Cindy

    Marla I agree. I didn’t see sucralose on the ingredient list but will look again. They told me all the products contained raw sugar. Sucralose would definitely be a deal killer for me.

    i have also been using herbalife and i have more energy now then i have ever had.. i havent been feeling hungry at all.. at dinner i literally have to make myself eat the meal which i should be excited about because its the one meal im allowed to eat besides snacks.. but im always full… and if youre like me, you rarely have time for breakfast.. i can quickly make the shake and its delicious.. by the time snack and lunch come up im still feeling full… its a success for me.. im trying to lose 30 punds by march… we’ll see how it goes.. but i have lost 3 pounds in 2 days so far im feeling confident…i have so much more energy.. its amazing.. no lie

    DAN SNOW

    hey tiarabell, and anyone who may read this. just thought I’d remind you to be sure to eat at least 4 times a day. I’m a personal trainer, and I get concerned when I hear that people are feeling full and skipping lunch ( or any meal)

    Tina

    Too funny! 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. NO SUPPLEMENT. Period. 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. Change takes WORK.

    sheela

    r u still using herbalife now… if not , have u gain weight again?

    Jeremy

    Dan, I’m also a CFT, SSC, and working on my SFN. I think you and many other people have a general misunderstanding of the Herbalife products. No one is skipping meals whatsoever. Actually they are eating 4-6 times per day. The Formula 1 shake is a healthy meal. It is complete and balanced with nutrients, proper carbs, and protein but remains low calorie. We both know all these are essential to a healthy diet. This is just a simple, and delicious way to lose, gain, or maintain weight for the majority of the people out there who simply won’t or don’t know how much of the proper foods to consume on their own. As far as the people saying this is expensive, it actually works out to about $1.39/meal for the shake alone. If you decide to go with one of the weight loss programs that include 2 shakes/day it would work out to $5.42/day for the basic, $7.50/day for the advanced, or $9.83/day for the ultimate. This includes 2 shakes/day and all other vitamins and supplements for each program. Compare that to what most people actually eat, and for the price of 1 trip to the drive through they could be much healthier. They also have healthy meals and snacks throughout the day every 3-4 hours to keep the metabolism fired up. To those who can do it own their own, great. If you need help though this is a very trusted, proven and viable option. Tina, you are right about the lifestyle change, but if it doesn’t work how do you explain my own results and those of the 60+ million people around the world who use and continue to use these products everyday? Believe what you want folks, but hard to knock something you’ve never tried!

    A while ago, my Mom got into Herbalife products, mainly the Savila and tea extract drinks. After tasting the Mango flavored Savila drink, my throat hurt to the point where I was certain I’d find Sucralose on the ingredient list, and what do you know.

    They claim their products to be “all natural”, however, Sucralose is man-made, which is NOT natural, it is made in a lab. Just because chemical engineers use a natural ingredient as their base ingredient, does not mean the result will be healthy to ingest.

    I myself use their non-flavored Savila extract and Peach Tea extract as a means to relax. The Savila drink has Thermogenic effects, which gives you that warm feeling inside. The Peach Tea extract helps calm me down and relax, a better alternative to anti-depressants if you ask me. It also makes you visit the restroom quite frequently, which isn’t so bad when you’re getting into computer programming and have to sit down a lot 😛

    As far as weight loss goes, I can’t say that I’ve used any of their products for that reason. It just calls into question Herbalifes motives when they implement artificial ingredients and claim they are for weight loss and health. The Tea extract did help me feel lighter and more energetic though, so if you’re going to get anything from them, just stick to the non-flavored Savila and any Tea extract, the rest of their products are just garbage.

    Plus if you want people to buy your product you need to make it taste good. You either do this by making it taste sweet or you add fat.

    @Marla, Herbalife is here for almost 33 years, if u afraid to die/sick taking the products, think of how many people died in the same time frame taking regular fruids/vegetables around the world that has dangerous chemical addition. U are not a consumer of Herbalife so U do not understand.

    Hahahaha!! This whole thread makes me laugh!! Herbalife might be of good use for some people but just like many people mentioned…its about a LIFESTYLE change. I changed my lifestyle drastically and guess what happened…I myself lost over 60 pounds. None of my weightloss was due to exercise either…it was ALL food intake. Some people will never see any results if they dont change their lifestyle and if they do see results then they will gain all that weight back when they slip up or cant afford it. Change your lifestyle people…dont purchase anything in the middle of the grocery store and eat your normal amount of meals…3 or 4 to 6 meals a day. You arent supposed to eat more than the size of your fist in one meal…its hard but you have to start somewhere. Fill your stomach with water when you feel hungry!! Its all about will power and what you allow yourself to get away with!

    A lifestyle change exactly I used to use Herbablife for over 8 months and lost over 40lbs, yes I was working out too! As soon as I stopped using Herbalife, but yes it gets costly. Mind you I made my own protein shake (all natural) kept working out and ate healthy. I GAINED 15lbs back in less then 2 months. Granted I lost it all again but it took awhile. Now I am doing it the right way. Working out and eating healthy! Don’t waste your money people, it is a quick fix and unless you want to use this stuff the REST OF YOUR LIFE don’t buy it. It didn’t take you a week to gain the weight, something is wrong if you drop a ton of weight in two weeks.

    you’re funny! If you take Herbalife you will know that they keep the most stringent production processes during manufacturing and even before, during their selection of the plants and herbs to be used. I love Herbalife! I am 57 yrs old and it has brought me back to my productive and happy self. Herbalife is a lifestyle not a passing diet. It’s for life! Also, Herbalife is not medication, it’s nutrition. Big difference!
