Herbalife?

Posted by on Jul. 23, 2014 at 11:14 PM

Has anyone had success with Herbalife? I understand it is not ideal, but I, for the first time in my life cannot even sleep due to how heavy I am, I am extremely uncomfortable in my own skin and I just started a new job that I have only dreamt of, so I like the shakes and plan on taking on Herbalife and ween myself off the shakes with healthy meal replacements over time.  But I wanted to know if anyone has had success with it?

Thanks for any info!

Herbalife is very expensive. Why are you going straight to that, rather than just eating a clean diet? You can make your own smoothies for much, much cheaper, and they are better for you. Soy is not a natural substance, and the protein in an herbalife shake is soy.

I did wonderful my first month on herbalife then the second month I started throwing up everytime I drank a shake and took the vitamins. My "distributor" told me to order the ultimate kit if I wanted maximum results so I did the second month and it was just too much. Taking 7 pills 3 times a day and the shakes I literally threw up everytime I took the vitamins or drank a shake so I stopped. I still have probably 350 bucks worth of herbalife in my cabinet:/

I hear it's very expensive and doesn't work well, I use It Works products, they are very affordable and aren't a gimmick, I drink the greens everyday and just that has helped with cravings and makes it easier for me to lose weight? It's fruits and vegetables and affordable. I can answer any questions you may have.

Any meal shake will do the same thing, why buy that one?

Also bad idea to just drink meal replacements all the time.

I'd spend my money on weight watchers if I were you. Diets that use meal replacements typically don't work over the long term. You have to figure out what is wrong about your diet and make a permanent change to fix it.

Have you tried the thermo pill by them?

Meal replacement diets are a good way to lose 30 lbs, then gain 60 back. 


You need to eat to lose weight. You need a steady intake of 1200+ calories to keep your metabolism going.

I wouldn't do anything that wasn't a doctor prescription personally.

I wouldn't touch it personally- waste of money if you ask me. I'd rather just eat FOOD...

I have heard it's expensive and what happens when you stop?
