Herbalife FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

herbalife faq - frequently asked questions

Having been Herbalife providers for more than 32 years, we get asked a lot of Herbalife FAQ questions.
To help provide instant answers to some of the more common ones, we’ve produced this short questions and answers section for you:

Is there a difference between your recommended Breakfast Kits and Weight Loss Plans?

I’ve been asked this a few time lately, so thought I’d add this question to my FAQ section. The short answer is no, they’re the same products that you can use differently based on your goals.

I started off using Herbalife for weight loss; substituting 2 meals a day with a Shake and cutting back on food intake. After achieving my weight goal, I then continued to use the Herbalife products exactly the same way, with 2 shakes a day (Breakfast and Lunch) and found that I could generally eat what I wanted and still keep my weight under control. The primary value of Herbalife is the nutrition and how well it makes me feel. I’ve ditched the unhealthy, sugar and salt loaded breakfast that I used to eat and replaced it with a really healthy shake.

There’s a great Herbalife video on this on our Healthy Breakfast page 

Are the Herbalife products safe?

Yes, they are. Herbalife has been successfully operating since 1980, and have expanded to more than 90 countries. Arguably the most scrutinised 100% herbal-based nutrition products in the world, you can feel safe using them yourself. Millions of people use the products daily.

Can I use Herbalife if I’m pregnant?

This is another question that I get asked quite often. My advice is to consult your Doctor first. That’s what I did. I took the Herbalife products along to my Doctors so that they could see the ingredients. The advice that I was given was to not to diet whilst pregnant and use the Herbalife products as a supplement. I did this throughout my pregnancy.

Bottom line – consult your Doctor first.

How much do they cost?

That depends on several factors. Firstly if choosing one of the weight loss programs, it will depend on how much weight you would like to lose, how quickly you would like to see results and how committed you are to losing your weight. One of the major attractions of Herbalife is the price. Often our customers report that they actually save money because they’re not so hungry, they are cutting back on 1 or 2 meals a day because there are not so hungry and they are not craving the snacks. Also, think about how much it’s worth to you to look and feel great. Compared to the high cost and possible unwanted side effects of soy cosmetic surgery, for example, we’ve recommended proven and affordable Herbalife Plans and Products for you to suit your budget and your lifestyle.

I’ve bought the products before; can I buy them from you now?

Our policy on ethics dictates that we always refer you back to your original supplier if you feel that you were receiving good service and regular follow-up. However, we recognise that this is not always possible because they may have moved or you may have lost contact with them. If that’s the case, please call us to discuss your situation.

I’ve bought the products from someone else, but I’m not sure how to use them – can you help?

The person who sold you the products has a responsibility to follow you up, provide advice and support, and instruct you on how to use them properly. If that is not the case, you should contact them and ask for a better service. Failing that, you can contact Herbalife UK on 01895 819000 if you have cause for complaint.

The price that you pay includes the time factor of your supplier looking after you once you’ve bought the products. As much as we’d like to help with pre-purchases, we cannot commit to providing a compensatory service where you’ve already given the money to someone else. Remember that the products carry a money-back guarantee. Try and resolve the situation to your satisfaction, and remember that we’re here should you wish to start afresh.

Herbalife side effects

Because all of the Herbalife products are derived from natural ingredients it’s unlikely that you’ll experience any side effects. I do suggest that if you’re not normally drinking 2-3 glasses of regular milk per day then you may want to mix your Herbalife Formula 1 shake in fruit juice, water or an alternative milk such as Soy milk. This is because some people may be lactose intolerant which is found in regular milk.


How to lose weight with Herbalife

It’s really easy to lose weight with Herbalife products. Just follow the simple 3-2-1 process.

– take your Herbalife tablets three times per day

– take 2 Herbalife Formula 1 shakes per day

– Have 1 main meal per day and just cut back on the number of calories that you taking. Ensure that you’re also drinking 6-8 glasses of water for good hydration

How to use the Herbalife weight loss program

Unlike many diets which may require significant changes to the types of food that you eat, you’ll probably find Herbalife much easier to fit into your normal lifestyle. That’s because you won’t need to shop for different foods than what you usually eat, nor will you need to eat one type of food whilst the rest of your family eats something completely different. Carry on eating the food that you love, just reduce the amount of food and calories and follow the simple 3,2,1 system as described above.

How to lose weight fast with Herbalife shakes

The speed which individuals lose weight varies according to the number of factors, and everyone is different and has different weight loss goals. My advise when asked how to lose weight fast with the Herbalife shakes is to first set some realistic goals based on your aspirations and circumstances. Once you’ve bought the products from me we’ll discuss and agree some achievable goals and milestones.

What can I eat on Herbalife diet

One of the biggest attractions for me when I looked at the Herbalife Diet was that I could still eat my favourite foods everyday and all that I needed to do was cut back on the amount that I was eating. I found that the shakes gave me a real feeling of fullness and I just wasn’t as hungry as I thought I might be. Being able to still eat the food that I loved, just in smaller amounts made it really easy to fit Herbalife into my lifestyle.

Herbalife what to eat

Many customers over the years have asked me ‘what can I eat on Herbalife’ and my answer has always been the same. Carrying on eating the foods that you normally eat, just substitute 2 meals per day with the Herbalife Formula 1 shake and then have one main meal each day which can be made from your usual food choices. It couldn’t be more simple, especially if you have a busy lifestyle.

Herbalife eating plan

A Herbalife eating plan can be far easier to set up than you may think. That’s because there really isn’t a complicated plan to try and follow! When you buy the Herbalife products from me, I’ll talk through your plans and work with you to understand your weight loss goals. I’ll then discuss just how easy it is to get off to a great start and if you want to, we’ll regular calls to monitor your progress.

Herbalife weight loss schedule

Your Herbalife weight loss schedule can be easily adapted to your individual lifestyle. Some of my customers work shift patterns and I work with them to design an easy way to schedule how they use the products around different work patterns. Other customers of mine may have other factors that influence how or when they eat. The main thing to remember is that it’s easy to work the Herbalife weight loss schedule around your own individual schedule.
