Is my purchase secure? I have my own gym, I have a successful Bootcamp Franchise, I train athletes and celebs, I have members in my swindon Bootcamp alone and am a professional ultra endurance athlete who has apeared on the cover of several fintenss and running magazines around the world, so yeh if thats what you mean by a failure then I must be a failure…. Funny how all the Herbalife distributors that drive around selling the get rich dream actually just seem to be driving around in Ford KAs lol.

As they say the proof is in the pudding, so many people getting sick from this silly product!!! People need to be educated on real food.. Can healthy food make you sick? There is no quick fix.. Eat healthy and exercise. I work as a personal trainer and bootcamp instructor. I dont know everything about nutrition and I am learning new stuff all the time, but i did study it for 4 years at uni. You know i used to sell herbalife and yes it does help people lose weight but you have to ask the question is it sustainable and is it healthy?

Excitotoxins are damaging to the brain and the heart as they make both organs overwork. Both substances have been linked with conditions such as asthma, MS, fibromyalgia, migraines, and heart arrhythmias. Children are particularly affected by them and intoxication symptoms present themselves as hyperactivity.

Food labels are not allowed to include MSG any longer as it is renowned to be damaging to health, yet you will find it under different names. Yes, the same substance, just named differently! I know, this kind of sneakiness should be considered criminal!

Soy protein isolate Soy protein concentrate Autolyzed yeast Corn syrup Modified food starch Corn starch. With herbalife its easier for people to make in the morning and lunch time. There has been lots of research now about the amount of estrogen in soy milk. You have to look at the positives, they will be alot more men joining the tenners male voice choir.

The best way to lose weight is to exercise 3 times per week, doing a combination of bodyweight, kettlebell exercises and mixed up into a fun circuit, eating meat, fish twice per week, plenty of vegetables, and snack on a handful of nuts a fruit, drink plenty of water 1litre to every 25kg of bodyweight, fasting once per week is fantastic way to reduce insulin levels, burn fat reserves, it triggers hypertrophy with increase in growth hormone.

Sometimes its unrelated to weight. Herbalife is fucking pyramid with people foolish enough to buy in their pyramid scheme, scripted fuckers. Mike I would love to say that I agree with one thing you had to say about Herbalife. I have read a fair amount of your blogs, and I have come to the conclusion that you are a quite intelligent person.

I wonder though what happened to you, or better put, how you were wronged by someone in the Herbalife business, for you to post such a bias, non factual article. I have been on the Herbalife products now since Oct. I have lost 73lbs, gained 21 lbs. I also used to suffer from horrible joint pain, and Acid Reflux, both of which are gone. I have hired professionals in the past, personal trainers, nutritionists, I have even had Medical Physicians set me up on a meal plan.

These are facts, and I know they are because they have happened to me. Its also to my understanding that any company regulated by the FDA has to follow mega dosing laws as well as labeling laws. Herbalife is FDA regulated. My deepest apology to you for however you were wronged.

I wonder if you do not mind responding, What supplements do you recommend for and athlete, or a serious body builder? Thanks for your time! Any diet is wrong and does not sustain and work long term, sensible eating, and exercise is the only way weight loss is sustainable long term. GPs give out meal plans all the time and are not trained nutritionist and should not give out nutritional advice just as much as Herbalife distributors should not be allowed to give out nutritional advice.

A company that sells the distributorship of a nutrition product to any tom dick or harry is taking advantage of an unregulated industry and dangerous. As for your question about products for athletes or body builders, I have used many of the top brands, USN, LA Muscle, MetRex and many more but found a smaller UK based company called ISO2 Nutrition who after trailing their product over the past 3yrs I beleive they are the best on the market.

Not only do they work but taste good too. I have breakfast with Herablife Formula 1 since and I lost 8 kilos in a very easy way. And this products improve my energy!!!! It took you 2yrs to loose just 8kgs?

A Diet is where you lower calories and or replace food for such things like these shakes. It is a diet and there is nothing but cheap low grade soy protein in these shakes, if you eat properly and regulary exercise you loose weight become lean and improve your fitness.

Long term, dieting and replacing meals for shakes lowers your metabolism and long term does you more harm than good! This is totally untrue. 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. This is a uni-level operation, this means you have to recruit a lot of people to generate revenue however. They have been around for over 40 years and are well represented in many countries around the world.

Their annual sales revenue numbers are impressive as of six years ago, and I imagine they will continue to climb as people are becoming more health conscious as a population. Since this is a direct sales company, you might have to literally walk door to door in order to sell this type of product. This may prove to be quite difficult.

Also, there is only a five year limited warranty on these machines, if something goes wrong, you are on your own basically. On top of that, there is only a 15 day return policy.

If you are looking into starting your own home-based business, I would not recommend getting involved with Enagic USA. Their products are extremely overpriced with no scientific proof that they will do what they say. Though they say that they are a direct selling organization, they are no different than any other MLM company, because you need to recruit a lot of people in order to generate any real income. The start up cost in my opinion is ridiculous.

How do you market it? Walk around the neigborhood and offer people a glass of water that is supposed to provide all of these wonderful health benefits? Good luck with that. I saw company claims where by using these systems have alleviated everything from diabetes, obesity, menopausal complications, to breast cancer, BS. You have to be a very confident and successful salesperson to make any money with this organization.

What you really have to ask yourself when you are thinking about starting your own home-based business is this:. However, I strongly encourage you to continue to do your own research before you jump right into things.
