If anyone could help me with this answer I would greatly appreciate it!
I was an Herbalife Distributor back when the company was fairly new. From what I've seen, it really hasn't changed. It consists of herbal vitamins and protein shakes, no "real food." Ip at least has packets that are for lack of a better description, "Camp food" LOL. You can heat then, add veggies etc. The Herbalife CANNOT be heated according to the manufacturer because it destroys the nutrients. Herbalife works but it takes a very determined attitude to stick with it! Unless they've improved it a bunch, the shakes are not nearly as good as some of the competitors. The vitamins are all herbal. I will say that the main problem I had with it was having small children at the time, cooking meals for them and drinking a cold shake myself. With ip, I've been able to prepare a meal and enjoy it with my family. My grandkids eat exactly what I do when they are here for dinner. I just add a starch to their plate (mac and cheese is their favorite) and don't feel like I'm being cheated! Fortunately, they love vegetables and salad!
