How Does Herbalife Work for Weight Loss

If you're reading this article then, more than likely, you are interested in losing weight. I'll rephrase that. You are probably interested in losing excess fat. And you may have heard about Herbalife from a friend or just online. You may also have read negative articles about Herbalife and how it's all a scam.

Firstly, let me point out that Herbalife has been around for nearly 40 years. It is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and is a multibillion dollar company. If a line of products doesn't work, what chance do you think there will be that it would reach this status?

On top of that, Herbalife offers a 30 day unconditional money back guarantee on every product purchase. And that guarantee must be honoured by it's distributors.

Having said that, let's take a look at the weight loss products and programmes.

There are a number of standard programmes that can be purchased. Alternatively you can just buy individual products and make up your own programme.

In most countries you can purchase the QuickStart programme, Advanced Programme & Ultimate Programme. At the core of every programme is the Formula 1 Shake Mix. This is a high protein, high nutrition powdered shake mix that can be mixed with low fat milk, soy milk, almond milk, etc. However it's not recommended to be mixed with plain water, full fat milk or fruit juice. The latter is way too high in sugar. Formula 1 contains protein and a number of vitamins and minerals in the correct proportions. It does also contain sugar in the form of fructose. Fructose, or fruit sugar, does not raise the blood sugar and so these shakes are classified as low GI. It does however have to be processed though the liver.

Every Herbalife programme utilises Formula One to replace 2 meals per day. The majority of people would replace breakfast and either lunch or dinner. One food meal is eaten per day and should consist of protein, vegetables (or salad) and may contain some complex carbohydrates. In other words, it should be a healthy meal, not take away.

The Herbalife weight loss programme essentially works by feeding the body good quality protein and essential vitamins and minerals and by removing those factors that are detrimental - highly processed carbohydrates, saturated fats, etc. It's not rocket science and there are numerous shakes around today, but Herbalife came up with the concept way back before all these other ones got on the bandwagon.

There are a number of supplements and additional products that assist the process. These include a multivitamin, raw guarana supplement and fibre powder, which can be added to the shake.

That's the simplicity of how Herbalife works to help you lose weight. Will it work for everybody? Probably not. But if it doesn't work for you then you are totally covered by the 30 day money back guarantee. We have been selling Herbalife products for over 15 years and have had well in excess of 1,000 customers in that time. Our refund rate is below 1%.
