Why is it so successful / how does it work ?
This herbalife weightloss quickstart plan works because it helps you tackle the 4 common obstacles to weight loss :
- Loss of good nutrition as a result of dieting
- Loss of energy
- Low metabolism
- Cravings for snacks
Taking each one in turn :
1. Loss of good nutrition as a result of dieting
Most weight loss plans have been designed to cut back on calories but ignore a key element to your long term health : essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, etc.
A typical day on a herbalife diet is different because it actually feeds the body correctly, it does not starve it. The reason most people become overweight is due to nutritional deficiencies.
When you don’t feed the body correctly it craves more food than it actually needs; it craves sugar and fat. Which is why people often give up on diets or “cheat” because they can’t stand the hunger pangs. It becomes too hard.
That is why this plan will not only help you lose weight, but will also improve your health and you will enjoy using it until you achieve your ideal goal.
2. Loss of energy
Cereals for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, pasta for dinner and rice cakes, chocolate and biscuits for snacks?!
If you eat high-glycemic carbohydrates (ones that turn to sugary quickly) this hinders the fat burning process and decreases energy levels.
The reason is that they ‘encourage’ your body to look for a constant stream of ‘snacks’ to keep your energy up.
The herbalife weightloss quickstart plan contains low glycemic index products which provide long lasting energy – that way you will feel great all day long without have to resort to snacks.
3. Low metabolism resulting in slower results
Your metabolism affects the speed at which you burn calories – the higher your metabolism the more weight you will lose.
This plan has been designed to help your metabolism to the max – for example by providing you regular meals and protein to help your muscles work at it’s best.
That is why it is so effective and get such great results.
4. Craving for snacks
One of the biggest ‘downfalls’ of most diet plans are the temptation for that ‘small’ snack during the day. Often a snack can undo all the good from eating low calorie meals.
This plan works because the combination of higher protein (preventing hunger between meals), and low glycemic index (helping your energy levels so you don’t need that ‘sugar’ rush) takes away the snacking needs.
Our most popular questions
How quickly will I see results ?
Everybody is individual and results vary from person to person – but you will probably lose inches before lbs
Will I get hungry between meals?
No, hunger tends to be caused by not having enough protein in your diet. By adding protein powder (see below) to your individual needs you will find the shake will fill you up.
Can I blend it with milk ?
We usually recommend not blending it with milk. The only reason for this is that a proportion of the UK population is lactose intolerant and might have problems digesting cows milk. If you have no problems with milk then you can blend it with skimmed or semi-skimmer milk. Alternatively Formula 1 tastes great with Soya milk, fruit juice or even water. We have a variety of different recipes so that you can always enjoy your shake
Why do I need to add Protein Powder ?
Eating the right amount of protein for your body prevents hunger and increases lean body mass. The more lean body mass you have, the higher your metabolism and the more calories you’ll burn.
The amount of protein you should have in your diet is individual to you. Which is why we supply the protein powder separately, and not already blended into the Formula 1 drink.
Why do I need a Multivitamin Complex ?
The Herbalife philosophy is rooted in a concept based on nourishing your body at the cellular level.
The trillions of cells that make up your body must be healthy and functional before you can expect optimum well-being and energy. No long term weight control or life enhancement programme can work, unless your cells receive all the nutrients they need from natural food sources or any additional supplementations.
If your body can’t obtain all the essential vitamins and minerals from the food consumed it will continue to demand more food. The Formula 2 complex has been especially formulated to ensure you get all the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients you need.
