How to use them and what are the fundamental Herbalife products

Diet advice
Come si utilizzano e quali sono i prodotti fondamentali Herbalife.

Pick up any nutrition book and it will confidently claim to contain all the answers to successfully losing all the weight you want without gaining it back in no time. Some argue that eating less and exercising more is the key, others that low fat is the only way to succeed, while still others recommend drastically cutting carbohydrates. So what should you essentially do?

The truth is, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to healthy, permanent weight loss. What works for one person may not work for another, as our bodies respond differently to different foods, depending on genetics and other individual factors. Finding the right weight loss method for you will probably take time, patience, commitment and a bit of experimentation with different foods and diets.

Herbalife knows this and that's why it has a wide range of products that can adapt to the specific needs of individuals.

I Herbalife products, in fact, they are designed to implement different slimming strategies by rebalancing our nutritional scheme. The reduction of calories, the intake of more protein, fiber and healthy fats are the basis of the use of Herbalife products.

Furthermore, it should be noted that while some people respond well to calorie counting or other similar restrictive methods, others respond better if they have more freedom in planning their weight loss programs. What is certain is that, in any case, our body must have the possibility to react and readapt to the new nutritional scheme offered by Herbalife. We all would like the kilos to melt like snow in the sun, however we must set ourselves realistic goals and, above all, not harmful to our health.

At this point, let's talk about four popular weight loss strategies and how Herbalife products can help us put them into practice.


Cut calories


Some experts believe that successful weight management boils down to a simple equation: if you eat fewer calories than you burn, you'll lose weight. Sounds easy, right? And it is.

Weight loss is not a linear event over time. When you cut calories, you might lose weight for the first few weeks, for example, and then something changes. Introduce the same number of calories but lose less or no weight at all. That's because when you lose weight you're losing water, lean tissue, and fat, your metabolism slows down, and your body changes in a variety of other ways. So, to continue losing weight each week, you need to keep cutting calories.

The trick to sustained and successful weight loss is to ditch foods that are high in calories but don't make you feel full (such as candy) and replace them with foods that fill you up without being overloaded with calories (such as vegetables, for example). ).

A Herbalife product useful for this purpose is the  Herbalife's main product: the Formula 1!

This smoothie is ideal for breakfast and, in general, as a meal replacement.

In itself it is a complete, healthy and balanced meal as it contains vitamins, minerals, low fat, carbohydrates and excellent quality proteins. This specific Herbalife product has the ability to satiate us and give our body energy to start the day but, at the same time, has a low dose of calories that will allow us, by taking it as breakfast and/or lunch, to provide our body with the right supply of healthy and high quality nutrients by applying a clear cut of the calories consumed throughout the day.


Cut out the carbs


Another cause of weight gain can be identified not in consuming too many calories but, rather, in the way the body stores fat after consuming carbohydrates. When you eat a meal, the carbohydrates from the food enter your bloodstream as glucose. To keep blood sugar levels in check, your body always burns this glucose before the fat burn of a meal.

If you eat a carbohydrate-rich meal (a lot of pasta, rice, bread or french fries, for example), your body releases insulin. In addition to regulating blood sugar levels, insulin does two other things: it prevents fat cells from releasing fat for the body to burn as fuel (because its priority is to burn glucose), and it creates more fat cells to store all that that your body cannot burn. The result is that you gain weight and your body now requires more fuel to burn, so you eat more. Since insulin only burns carbohydrates, you crave carbohydrates and thus begins a vicious cycle of carbohydrate consumption and weight gain. To lose weight you need to break this cycle by cutting back on carbohydrates.

Most low-carb diets are based on replacing carbohydrates with proteins and fats. If you try a low-carb diet, you can reduce your risks and limit your saturated fat intake by choosing lean meats, fish, vegetarian sources of protein, low-fat dairy products, and eating plenty of green and non-leafy vegetables. .

In this case, the ideal is to integrate your diet with a Herbalife product that guarantees us a greater protein intake. Among the Herbalife products the Formula 3 is the one that responds to this specific need. It is in fact protein powder derived from soy and therefore suitable for everyone, even vegetarians and vegans. Proteins form the "building blocks" of muscles, support the cardiovascular and hormonal systems, regulate internal temperature and interact with the exchange of information between cells. They also keep your appetite at bay and allow for an increase in lean body mass.


Cut the fat


It's a mainstay of many diets: if you don't want to gain weight, don't eat fat. Walk down the aisle of a grocery store and you'll be bombarded with reduced-fat snacks, dairy, and packaged meals. But as our low-fat options have exploded, obesity rates have also increased. So why haven't low-fat diets worked for more of us?

Not all fat is bad. Healthy or "good" fats can actually help control your weight, as well as manage your moods and fight fatigue. The unsaturated fats found in avocados, nuts, seeds, soy milk, tofu and fish can help fill you up, while adding some tasty olive oil to a vegetable dish, for example, can make it easier eat healthy food and improve the overall quality of your diet.

We often make the wrong compromises. Many of us make the mistake of trading fat for the empty calories of sugar and refined carbohydrates. Instead of eating full-fat yogurt, for example, we eat low-fat or fat-free versions that are filled with sugar to make up for the loss of taste. Sugar is then hidden in various foods such as soups and canned vegetables, pasta sauce, margarine and many other reduced-fat foods. Since your body gets everything it needs from sugar found naturally in food, all that added sugar is nothing more than a lot of empty calories and unhealthy spikes in glucose in your blood. 

Among the Herbalife products, Thermo Complete it is very suitable for diets in which the aim is to reduce bad fats. 

Made with plant extracts, it has properties specifically aimed at weight loss and maintaining mental focus.

The most interesting thing about this Herbalife product is that it manages to activate the metabolism by stimulating the disposal of fat reserves. In short, it is a real fat burner that will significantly support your low-calorie diet with green tea, yerba mate and a good dose of vitamin C.


Fill up on fruits, vegetables and fiber


Even if you're cutting calories, that doesn't necessarily mean you need to eat less food. Fiber-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains are larger in volume and take longer to digest. They therefore represent a particularly satiating type of food and excellent for losing weight.

It's generally fine to eat as many fresh fruits and non-starchy vegetables as you like -- you'll feel full without going overboard on calories.

Eat vegetables raw or steamed, not fried or breaded, and season them with herbs and spices or a drizzle of olive oil for flavor.

Add fruit to low-sugar cereals: blueberries, strawberries, sliced bananas. You'll still be able to enjoy plenty of sweetness, but with fewer calories, less sugar, and more fiber.

Snack on carrots or celery with hummus instead of high-calorie chips.

Add more vegetables to your main courses, perfect for making everything more substantial by allowing you to introduce quality nutrients into your body.

If you are not particularly fond of fruit and vegetables but your diet needs more fiber, among the Herbalife products that provide valid food supplementation, our support comes from Multifibre! In fact, if you are having difficulty getting enough fiber through your diet, this supplement can help you reach the recommended daily allowance of 25g.


Here are some other small tips to follow to find the lost line:

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day
  • Sip our own herbal tea both for breakfast and lunch
  • Melt the mixture Formula 1 in natural water (preferably mineral and non-carbonated) at room temperature
  • In the free meal make great use of bresaola, turkey, chicken, meat, fish, vegetables and salad
  • Eat vegetables at will and of any kind (even during snacks)
  • Don't overdo it with fruit and edibles avoid bananas and luva
  • You can have one more abundant or transgressive meal a week. But only once a week and always on the same day of the week (eg. on Wednesday, every Wednesday)
  • Sweets/alcoholics/ice creams/aperitifs/sandwiches/pizza/brioche/sweetened coffee have been abolished
  • Never drink sugary drinks.  Instead, you can enjoy "zero calorie" drinks (such as Lemonsoda zero, Tonic water Zero, Sprite Zero as well as the famous Coca cola zero, etc. - even if they are carbonated it doesn't matter, just don't abuse them
  • What matters are the calorie: the least possible calories, therefore no sugary drinks 
  • Focaccia, bread, pizza are all sugars (carbohydrates).  In the free meal it is possible to eat pasta, as long as it is little, in addition to bread substitutes
  • Gallettes etc. they are fine but ONLY in the free meal and in small quantities 
  • A nice salad with vegetables, also grilled, eggs or bresaola or turkey or even all together... It's perfectly fine.  The meat is also excellent
  • Little bit, very little salt, because it prevents fats from melting

From the eleventh day, follow the quantities indicated on the product label.

Formula 1
