As someone who has struggled with her weigh since having children, I tried everything. I tried detoxes that made me severely ill, diet pills that made me sick and dizzy, and every fad diet imaginable. I even tried protein shakes. When Herbalife products were brought to me, I was skeptical because I have tried the protein shakes from GNC, all of them, and they were all terrible. I was convinced to try the Herbalife shakes and I was completely shocked when it did not taste like I was swallowing chalk! I kept going and getting my shake and tea and eventually signed up to distribute. To date, I have lost a total of 54 pounds and I do not regret it one bit. Herbalife showed me a way to keep myself healthy without hurting my body and encouraged me to pursue a fitness career. You hear negative things about Herbalife. Do some research, and try it for a bit. No harm done. See if it is the right thing for you!
