Be Healthy, Energetic & Happy

What Exactly Is This Program?

This program is a scientifically formulated, herbal-based calorie-reduced nutrition program. It is centered around our unique high-energy, protein-rich, nutritional "shake" or meal replacement drink to which have been added food supplements containing important vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and nutritional herbs. This program has been used for weight control and health enhancement since 1980 by literally thousands and thousands of individuals around the world.

What is Cellular Nutrition?

In order for your cells to function optimally, they must be able to absorb the nutrients you consume. Starting in the digestive tract, you need both balanced nutrition and receptive cells to accomplish this. When either or both of these systems are impaired, memory, clear thinking, problem solving and even mood can be affected. This is why Herbalife's revolutionary Cellular Nutrition Program is essential for your good health.

What is Herbalife Outer Nutrition?

Science has discovered that many of the same nutrients and botanicals that support good health when taken internally can also enhance appearance and well-being used externally. Herbalife has used this principle to develop a range of personal-care formulas, for body, skin and hair.


Can Herbalife help me lose weight and keep it off?

Yes! For more than 31  years we've helped millions of satisfied customers achieve their ideal weight and maintain it with our scientifically advanced weight-management programs. We offer both a calorie-controlled and a carbohydrate-controlled approach to weight loss, helping you find the program that works best for you. Based on improved Cellular Nutrition®, Herbalife's weight-management programs can help you feel better, have more energy and maintain a healthy weight for life.

Do You Lose Weight Because You Skip Meals?

No. This calorie-reduced program encourages participants to eat three meals daily. Two usual meals are in the form of our nutritionally balanced meal replacement drink, and the third is any meal of your choice.


Is This A Liquid Protein Or Starvation Diet?

This program is neither of these. When properly followed, our program supplies at least 1000 calories daily and is nutritionally complete so that to promote safe and effective weight-loss. "Liquid protein" diets, which use nutritionally unbalanced protein-based drinks, or starvation diets, which reduce calories so low (less than 500 kcal daily) that people literally starve to lose weight, are both extremely unhealthy and have less than 20% long-term success.

How Does It Work?

It supplies the balanced nutrition the body needs on a daily basis. Individuals, who choose to, can promote their weight-loss by reducing excess calories without sacrificing important nutrients like protein, potassium and iron. As a result, they feel their best while they lose both excess weight and inches.

Is This 'Natural'?

This program is based entirely on nutrition and herbs. The program does not use drugs, medications, hormones or other synthetic agents to promote weight loss. All ingredients in the program must fulfill three important conditions: purity, potency and stability. This is how we maintain the high level of quality associated with the program's name.


What Do The Herbs Do And Are They Safe?

Herbs are nature's nutritional bounty. They are rich sources of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and related nutrients essential for good health. The herbal mixtures used in these products have been created by experts to maximize nutritional potency. The herbs are of the highest quality available anywhere in the world and are free of pesticide residues and other possible contaminants.

Has This Program Been Tested?

Absolutely. The program has had extensive clinical testing in the United States, Great Britain and Italy. All of the studies have demonstrated that the products are safe and effective on both a short term and long term basis. In addition, each batch of these products is quality-control tested to ensure product integrity before it is shipped anywhere in the world.

Does This Diet Require Follow-Up By A Trained Professional?

This Weight Control Program has been specifically designed by experts and doctors in the fields of food technology and nutritional medicine so that it is completely self-explanatory and therefore does not require or expect nutritional expertise on the part of its user.  The distributors are trained by the company's Medical and Scientific Advisory Board to provide an exemplary customer service.

Is Exercise A Part Of The Program?

The program encourages participants to follow a healthy life style that includes good nutrition, regular exercise, moderation in the use alcohol and avoiding tobacco use. Many people cannot exercise because of serious injuries or other health problems. Even these individuals can use the program to aid their weight-loss because this program was designed to benefit people who exercise as well as those who can't.

Is This Program Recommended By Doctors?

Absolutely. The Medical and Scientific Advisory Board tests and researches these products and continually monitors reports of results sent by customers and distributors. In addition, many physicians and other health professionals in all parts of the world use these products both in their personal lives and in their practices.

Does The FDA Have A Problem With Herbalife? Is It Approved?

In 1986 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration thoroughly evaluated the Herbalife Program and issued a statement declaring that all of the Herbalife products were safe. The FDA does not actually approve any nutritional product or food supplement.  However, when Herbalife is introduced into a new country, it is reviewed by that country's government before it is approved for importation and distribution.
