My Story as a Herbalife Distributor

You are probably asking yourself does Herbalife really work?

Well I’m going to tell you now, like any crazy diet, be it a “fad” or one that is sustainable… everything works!

Big statement I know. But, it’s more important to question’s a diets sustainability, as everything works in the short term. Most people go onto “shake diets” as most know it, to lose weight rapidly. Because they think that all the take in is shakes. I didn’t find that the case.

Nor did I go on a “shake diet” to lose weight rapidly. I just used it as a way to make my life slightly easier, all whilst knowing I still needed to eat the right foods.

You see by the end of 2013 I was feeling quite run down and unenergetic due to a relationship breakdown, after a few years of mental and physical abuse. This lead me to lose sight and hope of my goals at the time and I also had let my nutrition slip.

After putting those few extra kilos on and I certainly wasn’t feeling myself as I ate less good food and relied on 4-5 coffees per day to see me through each day. Even though I formally had lost 35kg in the past and understood the importance of nutrition and a healthy active lifestyle, as a Personal trainer I hid my challenges quite well.

By January 2014, I put on an extra 6kg to be exact. So I decided to commit to 3 months on Healthy eating plan with Herbalife incorporated to test it out. Mind you, I’d tried and failed miserably in the past, lasting just 2 weeks before giving up because there was too many tablets.

But this time was different, as I also needed a nutritional advantage due to a new endurance sport I’d just started to train for – Kettlebell sport. The sport was a way to distract me from the “troubles of life” so to speak too. Better a challenging habit and pursuit versus a negative one, like smoking and drinking, right?

So I thought I’d give it a real chance. Believing that like any “sponsored athlete”, these nutritional shakes and tablets (extra vitamins and minerals) would give me that advantage I needed.

Prior to trying the Herbalife nutrition program I was quite sceptical of it all. I was previously used to eating 5-6 meals per day and believed mainly in nutrition through hard food and the occasional shake after a workout.

The results… after just 3 months on my new nutrition program I noticed I recover better then ever between training sessions, have noticeably increase energy and also spend 2-3 hours per week less preparing and consuming all my meals. This was a big one for me, the time saved in preparing less meals.

I’m was also able to get my sweet fix knowing that I was getting nourished at the same time and this supportted my busy daily life.

And just as a bonus I’d also lost 5 kilos and 5% body fat, over that 3 months. Un-noticeably really, as I never even weight myself until after 12 weeks from starting. Like i said, yes I was a few kegs over weight, but I was using it more to help fuel myself as a future athlete. Having said that, my fitness levels had also increased dramatically giving me the confidence to continue on with my sport using heavy Kettlebells.

So does Herbalife work? Of course it does. It just depends if you’re ready to commit to eat healthy as well. Plus add in some exercise.

Of course I’m not saying you can’t get your goals and sustain them with out all the potions and pills. You can, just as I did and many of my clients have too. I use them for convenience now, and so do my busier clients. As it’s also good for insurance that I get the full spectrum of vitamins and minerals. All whilst still managing to eat 3-4 real food meals per day.

It’s not the magic pill. Nothing is, you have to work hard at building a good relationship with food as well. It’s not a shake diet either, but if you see it that way it is. Instead, be sure to have any shakes you may have around eating more of the right foods. Simple.

A quality Herbalife Distributor in Melbourne who actually cares.

So, after trying it out myself PROPERLY, I became a fan, and distributor. Of course, it may not be for everyone, but for a lot of my clients it was the solution they wanted. I’m able to help with my experience of losing 35kg myself and how I’ve kept it off for over 10 years, as well as over 10 years experience in the industry.

Are there any Herbalife side effects?

I never had any bad side effects from using the Herbalife products. But some people may who have allergies or intollerances may feel something. Gluten or soy intolerance’s are common, but there are other products that might be beneficial that don’t contain these ingredients. Another side effect, if you can call it that, is that it make people go to the toilet more often. Most of the time this can be put down to better digestion whilst using certain products and any abnormal symptoms usually fade away.

All of the Herbalife products can be bought individually and tailored to your needs in personalized program. Everything comes with our 30 day money back guarantee, if it’s not for you PLUS will also get my weekly Health, Fitness and Weight Loss Coaching.

Are you still skeptical?

Don’t worry so was I. But after the results that I got as mentioned above, I truly believe in supplementation together with whole food eating and exercise to get healthy and stay that way. Here is more proof of their application in this day and age.

Health is Wealth
is a book based upon hard evidence; not one filled with pseudo-scientific speculation and overblown promises about so-called wonder foods. Dr. Louis Ignarro was as skeptical as most Western medical professionals are about the ability of food to function as medicine before he began to see for himself the incredibly beneficial effects of NO supportive supplements and foods on the vessels of the cardiovascular system.

Dr. Louis Ignarro is the only doctor to work for a Nutritional supplements company and receive a Nobel Prize for his work on Heart Health.

The old if there’s a disease, there s a drug for it… philosophy was definitely the culture in which he was immersed. But as he observed the growing amount of empirical evidence proving the powerful effects of amino acids, antioxidants, and other key nutrients, he was forced to rethink his position. He is a rigorous, questing, scientific mind, and, when presented with overwhelming evidence of the ability of the 10 Power Nutrients to prevent and even reverse damage and dysfunction, he became convinced of their effectiveness.
