Herbalife Meal Plans

Herbalife weight loss programs are popular because they are simple. The meal plans are very straightforward. In short, you replace two meals per day with the Herbalife Formula 1 Shake and  have one normal healthy meal. You can have two small snacks in between meals if you are feeling hungry.

Here is an example of a typical day while you’re on the program.

7:30am – Wake Up

8:00am Breakfast – Smooth Chocolate Formula 1 shake and Protein Drink Mix,  mixed with skim milk and half a banana

11:00am Snack – A medium apple

1:30pm Lunch – Grilled chicken breasts with vegetables and wholegrain bread

5:00pm Snack – A can of tuna and iceberg salad

8:00pm Dinner – Vanilla Cream shake with skim milk

The above is just an example. We recommend you always have the shake for breakfast, and then again for either lunch or dinner, whatever suits you best.

The importance of a healthy breakfast

We always recommend having the shake for breakfast. Many studies have shown that skipping breakfast increases the chance for obesity and weight gain. The same applies to unhealthy, sugar-rich breakfasts and junk food.

Having breakfast speeds up your metabolism and affects how you will feel (and what you will eat) during the day. When you skip breakfast, you are much more likely to resort to unhealthy snacks and junk food before lunch.

What to eat on a Herbalife weight loss plan

For the best weight loss results, you should be having the Formula 1 shake for two meals every day. For your remaining meal go as healthy as possible.

Lean meats (turkey, chicken, steak, fish) are always a good choice because they have lots of protein and little fat. The protein helps keep you feeling full and speeds up fat burning.

Fresh vegetables, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce etc. are great as salads. You can also go for boiled / grilled vegetables, such as broccoli. If you are making potatoes or rice, keep the portions small (around the size of your closed fist).

Do not eat junk food, fast food, sugary juices and soft drinks, sweets.

The more you pay attention to what you eat and how you live, the better and quicker the weight loss results will be.

If you are feeling hungry, you can have 2 snacks per day – 1 between each of the main meals. Herbalife protein bars are a great snack idea as they have lots of protein and few calories. They also taste great.

Snacks can also be fruits, such as an apple or pear, a handful of almonds, a few whole grain crackers, a carrot…. anything small that will sate your hunger until the next meal.

Snacks should not be crisps, cookies, chocolates and similar foods.
