The Herbalife Challenge
I noticed that more and more people are getting health conscious nowadays. On Plurk, I had a friend who is taking Herbalife’s protein shake as a meal replacement. I have tried this before and that kind of diet works for me. I only stopped because I lost contact with the distributor here in San Pedro, Laguna. If I remember correctly, her name is Joy. She was the one who introduced me to Herbalife and its vitamin supplements, protein shakes and other health products.
So how does one go about losing weight by taking Herbalife? As I have mentioned, Herbalife shakes are taken as meal replacement. Ms. Joy advanced me to start by taking a glass of Herbalife protein shake in the morning as breakfast. I can add fruits to the shake if I want to. Banana goes well with the chocolate-flavored shake so that’s what I used.
I can eat whatever I want for lunch, dinner, and snacks provided I eat in moderation. I ate normally for about two weeks or so until I noticed that my appetite wasn’t as big as before. Eventually I could forgo lunch the mid morning snack and just have lunch instead. As a result, I lost about 7 pounds at the end of the month and my skin looked better. I was moving my bowels with more regularity, too!
Aside from losing weight, you can also take Herbalife shakes to gain weight and build muscles. That’s what my friend from the U.S. does. He’s very much into healthy living so he drinks Herbalife protein shake for breakfast with a fruit or two. Then he drinks a glass of Herbalife shake after lunch. He gained about 10 pounds in three weeks.
Unfortunately, some people do not respond well to Herbalife. One gal pal who took Herbalife gained a few pounds instead of losing some. She was the type who can’t go without rice for breakfast so even after she took Herbalife in the morning, she’s still eat rice before lunch as snack. This just goes to show that losing weight is case to case basis and what works for me might not work for you. So try and experiement which weight loss method fits you the most.
