How To Get The Best Results With Herbalife
Herbalife products can be great in helping you achieve weight loss results and keep you in shape. However, it’s important to use the right products in the right way to make sure you achieve the results you set for yourself.
Whether it’s your first time using Herbalife or you’ve been using the products for a while, this article outlines the key factors that contribute to your Herbalife weight loss success.
1. The Basic Principle Of Weight Loss
Before we dive into the nitty-gritty of your Herbalife plan, it’s important to go over the basic principle of how fat loss works.
In a simplified way, every day, we consume a certain amount of calories from the food we eat which provide the energy our body needs to function. Let’s call this “calories in”.
On the other side of the scale is your body which every day burns a certain amount of calories depending on your activity level and metabolism. From your morning run to picking up the kids from school to watching TV in the evening, your body is constantly burning calories. Let’s call this ‘calories out’.
In order to burn fat, you need to consume fewer calories than your body burns which creates a so-called “caloric deficit”. When you’re in a caloric deficit, your body will take the remaining necessary calories from your reserves, meaning your fat cells. That’s where the magic happens!
The reason why Herbalife shakes and other products are so effective is that they condense a large number of nutrients into low-calorie meal replacements which are quick and simple to prepare. This helps you to achieve the desired caloric deficit without the need to obsess about meal prepping and calorie counting (for most people).
Thus, how you use your Herbalife products, how consistently and what you eat around them has a big impact on the results you can achieve.
2. What Herbalife Products To Use And How To Use Them?
Selecting the right Herbalife products according to your goal is the first fundamental step. There are different products for weight loss, sports performance or general health. With over 50 Herbalife products to choose from, which ones should you select for the best results?
If your goal is weight loss, we have answered this question thoroughly in this article. In a nutshell, the fundamental weight loss products are:
- Formula 1 Shake - meal replacement shake
- Protein Drink Mix (PDM) - increases protein in your F1 shake & makes it creamier
- Thermojetics Herbal Tea - promotes fat-burning & boosts energy
- Aloe Concentrate - contributes to healthy digestion & sweetens your tea
- Oat Apple Fibre - boosts fibre intake which makes you feel fuller for longer
The above are also ranked by the order of importance. Meaning, if you can only get one product, get the Formula 1 Shake (twice per day) and add the rest of the above products when you can.
Here is how a typical Herbalife day looks like using the above products:
- Breakfast: Shake (F1+PDM) & Herbalife Tea with Aloe Mango
- Mid-morning: High protein snack
- Lunch: Shake (F1+PDM)
- Mid-afternoon: High protein snack + Herbalife Tea & Aloe Mango
- Dinner: Well-balanced meal + Oat Apple Fibre
Also, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout your day to keep hydrated.

3. What To Eat Around Your Products?
In the above daily plan, you will see that apart from Herbalife products, you will still be consuming regular food on your plan in the form of snacks and one main meal.
Herbalife products are very effective, however, they are not magic! This means that if you eat unhealthy food around your products, it will be hard to see consistent results. Thus, you will need to keep your food as clean as possible.
For snacks, we recommend aiming for around 150 calories and at least 10g of protein for females. If you’re a male, then aim for 200 calories and +15g of protein.
For your evening meal, make sure to include lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats and plenty of vegetables. If you’re female, aim for 500 calories and +35g of protein. For males 600 calories and +40g of protein.
To increase your calorie expenditure, it’s a very good idea to incorporate some exercise at least 3-5 times per week. This way you will burn those extra calories to help create a larger caloric deficit.
In terms of what exercise to do, it’s really up to you. From doing a gym workout to playing football to going for a long walk, there are so many types of exercise to choose from. Exercises that elevate your heart rate and make you sweat are great as they generally burn more calories. The important thing is that you actually enjoy that type of exercise which will help you to stay consistent.
Speaking of consistency, it is also one of the key elements of getting great results on your Herbalife plan. You can do all the steps above to a T, however, if you don’t follow them for a consistent period of time, it will be hard to see results.
Ideally, you stick to your plan day in, day out. And yes… that includes the weekends too!
Of course, not every day will be perfect but try to follow your plan as much as you can. The more consistent you are, the faster results you will see.
Make It Count
Many customers ask us “How long should I use the products for?”. Unfortunately, the answer is always “It depends.” It depends on your goals, starting point, consistency and any other factors. However, for serious results, we recommend at least 90 days.
If you decide to take on a Herbalife plan, don’t do it half-hearted. Make the decision to stick to your plan like glue and you will be amazed at what you can achieve.
