Herbalife- A Testimonial..

First of all I would like to make a disclaimer that I am in no way affiliated with Herbalife. I am not getting paid to say this nor am I a member of Herbalife. This is just me sharing my experience about taking products under this brand.

I first tried Herbalife over 3 years ago and I did it to lose weight. I didn't feel like I was experiencing anything positive health-wise because I was so focused on the weight loss aspect of it. This time around however as I've mentioned in one of my previous posts I did it just to try it out and check my progress with their weigh in system.

My last day with the 7 day program was yesterday but I decided to continue taking Herbalife because I noticed some positive changes in just 11 days (I skipped 4 random days). As a couch potato, to say that I am a sedentary person is an understatement. I try to get in a bit of exercise at lunch time by going back to my house which is 10 minutes away from the station but that's about it.

First of all I started jogging around 2 weeks ago and expected to experience muscle soreness but I didn't. I drink a 'full course' after work (aloe, tea and shake) before I jog and on the first day that I did this I was afraid that I would experience weakness and extreme hunger either during or right after jogging. Again, my fears were unfounded. Instead it gave me energy that I didn't know I had.

 I only get to jog about 2 times a week because of the weather and when it rained yesterday I decided to substitute jogging with stair climbing (20 times up 2 flights of stairs). I know, very ambitious right? Needless to say, I was ready to die by the time I completed my work out and my legs were on fire. Again, I expected to feel muscle pain today but I only experienced minor of minor discomfort that did not hinder me in any way.

The most noticeable change however is in my skin. I have a skin condition called eczema where it flakes and when I eat certain foods like eggs, beef or shrimp paste my skin would flare up. Lets just not get to the graphic details okay? I have been taking Ezede for my allergies and topical creams were my best friend.

I recently realized that my skin haven't been itching as much and that all the flared up areas are, well, no longer flared up. It's healing up nicely and I haven't used topical cream for ages since my last bug tube ran out. Yay! I feel so free. So yeah, despite the hefty price I think I am going to continue with taking Herbalife as much as my lack of funds allow me to.

Today I started to take it as my breakfast and Kak J who prepares it for me, Bless her generous soul, gave me a double dose of protein. Haha.. Thank you Kak J. I still experienced the munchies but when I eat I find that a little is enough to satisfy me so I feel that taking it for breakfast is probably much better in terms of weight loss. Haven't tried jogging with this new routine though so it might change.

If you're worried about spending the money, you can find a Herbalife Nutrition Club near you (there's one in Wisma Merdeka and also one in Inanam that I know of) and do what I did, try the 7 day program first. They also have a 10 day program and a 30 day one as well.

There's no need to get carried away with just the weight loss or the business part of Herbalife (I know some of the members can be a bit pushy when it comes to buying products). Just invest in your health according to your needs and priorities.

I hope this is helpful for you. Cheers!
