Please contact me with issues you have concerning Herbalife or what other Distributors have offered you and said to you. Ive had many clients come to me after the long term failure of the likes of Herbalife, and have put them into a healthy eating plan and exercise regime that works, a true lifestyle change, no diets!

This sort of product should not be allowed to be sold by unqualified people with no nutritional qualifications! Herbalife are a law upon themselves along with other companies like them and should be regulated. Wow, stirred up something here! Firstly just want to say that I became a Herbalife distributor earlier this year and in know way was an easy, fast cars, big houses lifestyle ever proposed to me, although I do know that some of their literature does contain pictures along those lines.

As regards the business I do agree with you to a certain extent that some distributors may be selling the products for purley profit and that training should be given if no qualifications in nutrition are held. As for the products, they are the best range that I found when looking into providing an alternative to my preferred solution of wholesome, natural foods.

As a qualified fitness coach, I agree that we should always first and foremost promote healthy eating through natural resources. The true meaning of diet really just refers to the kind of food lived on, so whatever someone is eating is the diet that they are on at that time. The reason why I decided to provide Herbalife was for 2 reasons. I still ensure that they eat natural foods along with Herbalife, which is in fact what Herbalife promote. This then is still far better than their previous eating habits.

Herbalife for some of them does just that and also with the range Herbalife provide, goes on to support them in any sport or competition that they do. As for the business side of it from my perspective, I have a supportive upline and will build a downline with that continued support. As a fitness coach and someone who is continually learning about nutrition, I will be able to provide them with the correct information to help their customers.

The products are the same price to the customer at what ever level you buy them. Just as you would with a wholesaler, the more you buy the greater the discount to the distributor. A Pyramid is where the price has to keep continually going up the further down the levels it moves until it reaches a point where the price is so high that the person holding the goods cannot sell on.

Hope that explains a true pyramid scheme. Herbalife is really expanding at this moment in time, even in this recession and that I beleive is because they have realised that by bringing on board health and fit professionals brings more credibilty to their products and ensures that the end consumer is getting the right advice for them. Everyone is different and mindset that was mentioned in a previous post is what needs to be looked at first.

But in Herbalifes case, that was then and this is now and I do know that they are regulated and follow those regulations. I do just wonder whether the regulating bodies are all legit but hey, thats another debate! Great to hear that you have a made a success of your business and I think that the important thing is that we help the people that come to us in the best way we can, which means that despite our differences, our objectives and purpose are similar.

Most distributors are uneducated in the world of nutrition and fitness and should not be allowed to give such advice, Herbalife, LighterLife and all these meal replacement diets out there are a wast of time and money. None of these work long term. I know what I know because of this and because of 22yrs of working with people from all walks of life, you say about busy life style, find time! Those are the weakest people who need the kick up the arse to be told how it is and to find the time and everyone has time!

Its called time management. Taking the easy option because of the thinking of no time to prep meals is just lazy, make meals that can be made on mass and frozen in freezer such as lasagne, tuna pasta bake, things that can be eaten the next day. Cooking methods, the George Forman Grilling machine cooks in minutes, at the same time steam veg and rice etc to not lose the nutrients in food that is lost when boiling in a pan. These are very quick methods of cooking. No time to shop for food, buy online, then the only food you need to get in the shop is your fruit and veg so you know you get the best — the rest of it can be just picked from online and delivered.

If they cant time manage, they will fail, if they take the easy option of a poweder replacement instead of real food they will fail. Herbalife sports and energy products dont come near the quality and level of brands out there that speicically target sports performance. Personally Id have a rethink of what you learnt back when you did your PT course, and all other course that show dieting is not good for you, and meal replacement is the worst kind of dieting.

Its nothing more than ditching calories. Understand life coaching techniques and work with you clients on a lifestyle level as well as their fitness and weight loss goals.

Mike, you just upset that we give results… and people love our fun fitclubs more than you, get with the program.. Also im sure you have great qualifications, although they dont come close to our NAB members, we have leading scientists. I do love how you people hide behind the internet with fake email addresses and names because you cant back up what you say…. Herbalife have a number of scientists on their payroll — Yes I know this, but if you are on someones payroll you are always going to say they are great as they are paying you to do so!

I can find at least two scientists for every Herbalife payrolled scientist that is independent that will say Herbalife is just a cheap soybased protein meal replacement product diet that does not work long term and that diets over all dont work! Im just a local guy, yes I am, so are the so called scientists you mention, we are all just local people in our local towns lol.

A pathetic argument there…. Im not upset with the results Herbalife give people because the results are poor!! Long term no diet works! So keep on producing the crap you produce and I will pick up the pieces when people realise they dont work along with all the rest of the Personal Trainers that train their clients the correct way. Mike, I completely agree. Their views can hardly be treated as impartial if they are employed by the company and will always be biased.

As for the meal replacement bars I was quite horrified with what was on the ingredients list, after soy protein there is a long list of various sugars including high fructose corn syrup and to top it off hydrogenated vegetable oil! Reads like a recipe for diabetes and heart problems. I am a specialist diabetic nurse. Have 28 years experience of medical nursing and 10 years as a specialist in diabetes with degree and masters qualifications.

I have grave concerns about the claims made by totally unqualified distributors loking to make money. Plese dont claim you are trying to help people. Distributors are making money from the products ales first and foremost.

It is al,ost like a cult. One distributor scribed a severlyunderweight girl who clearly needsmedical care. Probably having electrolyte disturbance due to such low body mass. The products can do real harm in these circumstances. A qualified dietician studies nutrition to degree level.

People with eating disorders need the right help these unqualified people have not even the basic knowledge to recognise that they may be doing more harm than good. Please seek proper medical advice. I dont have any vested interest in these products. The conversations we have cause me concern. She comes out with dreadful misinformation.

Telling customers normal food has no nutritional value. If you have been overweight all of your life and unable to find a good relationship with food yourself then what qualifies you to advise others to co so.

Encouraging your children as young as 5 to use the products? Havent there been concerns about levels of lead in the products? I accept there is a place for supplementation when training, especially to ensure the necessary intake of protein and carbs is achieved. But trust me there are far better and far less expensive products on the market that will aid your training more effectively than Herbalife or any other diet shakes for that matter.

If you actually sit down and read the independent reviews of their products and comparisons to other well known, and not so well known brands they never come off by well. This in turn creates a repeat customer to a very expensive overpriced product same way a drug dealer hooks a new customer. Do yourselves a favour and read the complete guide to sports nutrition by Anita Bean if you want sound advice on diet and nutrition. This goes on in this process time as there are at least 5 levels in the Herbalife pyramid scheme.

Or you could do the sensible thing and simply do a little reading. Ask someone with a nutrition qualification and actually learn how to eat a healthy balanced nutritious and varied diet. I have a BSc hons in sports therapy, level 4 in lower back pain, been involved in sport and the body since collage till now. Got to be some worth to them. The business can and only work if you have ALOT of people under you.

It took a guy 18 years to get to chairman club k a month and at the rate this company if expanding, i dont think there will be enough people to grab and sign up. End of the day its personal option on this company. It has just hit me that you have the gift of the gab to sell this and I am slowly backing out as i want to kick my sports therapy currier rolling.

Many people who who take Herbalife supplements have claimed to feel restless and nervous, along with experiencing the jitters and anxiety. Herbalife products, when analyzed, were found to contain high levels of lead. The amounts found in Herbalife products were above what the laws allows and were deemed toxic. These artificial claims included helping to treat many diseases, getting rid of tumors, increasing circulation, improving alertness and improving overall health.

Many users of Herbalife have filed lawsuits and complaints about side effects they experienced when using the products. Headaches, constipation, diarrhea, lightheadedness, nausea, and stomach upset are some reported side effects. Ephedra, a main ingredient in Herbalife, has been known to cause psychosis, tremors, kidney stones, high blood pressure, sweats, rapid heartbeat, and damage to the heart and other organs.

It has been linked to strokes, seizures and death. Also know that Herbalife can have side effects. Cascara sagrada can have side other effects such as cramps and abdominal discomfort, notes George T. Cascara sagrada increases risk for low levels of potassium in your blood, a condition called hypokalemia, when taken with me dicines like cortisone and chlorothiaxide.

If you have a gastrointestinal disease, it also can worsen your condition. The senna leaves in Herbalife can cause vomiting, nausea, flatulence, irregular heartbeat and kidney damage along with cramping and diarrhe a. Ingesting senna with drugs such as estradiol can decrease your blood levels of estrogen.

Senna can trigger or worsen electrolyte imbalance, dehydration, gastrointestinal problems and heart ailments, note Grossberg and Fox. Some Herbalife formulations have unknown amounts of uva ursi, says Deborah R. Thus, you should take products with this herb only for five days at a time, no more than five times a year, advise the experts at UMMC.

It also can lead to insomnia, irritability, vomiting and nausea. You should not take products with uva ursi in them if you have high blood pressure, are pregnant, have a kidney or liver ailment, suffer an ulcer or have digestive problems, according to UMMC. To all wise people and so called health nutirition expert explain how this product is to be taken without a proper doctors care???

Should this product really be in market as it is??? After reading the whole discussion, your summary is the most useful answer for me. I only want to know what are the issues with this product.

Is it really a cheap low grade protein like Mike said. If so, is there a better meal replacement product? I agree those distributors are not very professional and only give positive advice. Not everyone likes or have time to go to gym three times a week. If there may be an easier way, why not take it. I guess Hebalife may not suit for me since I do have some stomach issues and I will check with my GP first.

For the same reason, I still need find a OK meal replacement since most oil food will upset my tummy. And eat boil food all time is not fun. Hi you will be better off going to a Nutritionist in your area to fully advise you on the best course for you, find one that specialises in food allergies — Herbalife is a low grade cheap protein product and sold at a very high premium and sold by mostly people who have no qualifications in nutrition and diet to be able to advise safely.

I have read countless books, studies and articles. But, even i can tell people who support this programme are deluded. Not eating a meal for breakfast and for lunch for an entire year, like Caleb.

You must be plouging hundreds and hundreds into the company for these shakes and things. You can do this by simply eating fresh foods like lean meats and fish and lots of vegetables. No need to buy gimmicky shakes and things. Just simple, healthy living. And if you want to lose more weight, then simply go on a diet as herbalife is to implement a calorie defecit in your daily amounts to achieve weight loss!

People do need to have more education about these things as these things are driven solely by advertisments and sales tactics. Hi, Just wanted to add my opinion. I joined a herbalife sliming club called limelite.

Well here is how it went. Each of the twelve weeks we were introduced to a different herbalife product and made to watch videos from America telling us how fantastic the product was. At the end of each session the items were hugely pushed onto us. I did relent and buy a couple of the shakes, tablets, creams and energy bars. The only support i got was a phone call when the distributor worked out that our products should be running low trying to encourage me to buy more.

The fit club was doing an exercise video in a small cramped shed with about 10 of the other ladies. I did lose a stone but that was due to extra exercise i was doing myself. I would be really interested to hear how much the actual cost is to make the products…I have also since found out that the fantastic photos i was shown at the initial meeting were misleading, The distributor lost 4 stones through healthy eating and diet then started selling herbalife 2 years later but told her customers that she did it through herbalife.

When i started the group there was 23 ladies. At the end of the 12 weeks there was only 6 of us left…. Healthy eating and exercise is the only real way to lose weight and tone up, we are programmed to eat, chew, etc so drinking my meals just did not do for me.

My wife asked me if her dress made her look fat, I said no, its your ass and belly that does that! Sensible eating, sensible exercising is all that is needed to loose weight and maybe just a tad of will power…simples. It concerns me that Reps of this product target new mums,playgroups and even breast feeding mums concerned about baby weight. Why pay to drink milkshakes and loose the joy of eating????

Oh and for the record — Mike I am in awe of your amazing achievements you are not Mr Average in any way at all so please do preach to us mere mortals!

Very interesting to see both sides of the debate here. Clearly science is not with herbalife, though outstanding marketing is. I will stick to keeping one eye on what I eat, and the other on my hrm. Saying that though that Adidas-cannabis type looking logo of theirs is so very appealing…. Eat healthly and exercise is the only way to lose weight and keep it off. Visit Website Be kind and share.
