Herbalife For The Win
Hi Tomatonbasil and Saskiasrhythmbeads! I am an Herbalife Wellness Coach and a product of the product! I am NOT trying to sell product, just to share my results and give a little advice.
My story: Before I started my nutrition program through Herbalife I was 191 Lbs, uncomfortable, lethargic, totally sedentary, no energy AT ALL! I wanted to sleep all the time and I couldn't even see my toes, much less touch them! Then, I started my nutrition program. I lost 19 lbs in the first 7 weeks (which was this past Sunday!) and my energy and motivation are through the roof! The snooze button is no longer my best friend and I have begun to work out! This is the best I've felt about myself in years! Even my skin, nails and hair have improved (people have been commenting).
My advice: Make sure that you are eating protein rich snacks throughout the day. Herbalife is not necessarily as "diet", but rather a total nutrition program. I have a shake for breakfast, then a snack mid morning, then a full-colorful meal for lunch, then a mid afternoon snack, then a shake for dinner.....and if I feel like it, a mid evening snack. Examples of protein rich snacks might be an avocado, cottage cheese, string cheese, grilled chicken strips or cubes, tuna and celery, yogurt, peanut butter on rice cakes. Try to eat lots of fruits and veggies and stay away from carbs. I count my calories and try to stay between 1,000 to 1,400. If you eat less than 1,000 you risk slowing your metabolism down because your body feels starved.
I understand you not wanting to take the supplements. They can be pricey, but vitamins are essential. Please please please, make sure you are taking SOME...ANY sort of vitamins. (I could shoot myself for saying that, but I just want to make sure you know I am looking at you as people)
Good luck to you both on your journey to total health!! HOORAYYY!!
