Herbalife Weight Loss Nutritional Program
Characteristics: Replaces 2 meals a day with Herbalife "shakes" and tablets.
Strengths: One meal per day of regular food advocated. Shakes generally include nonfat dry milk.
Weaknesses: Heavy reliance on Herbalife powders and tablets. Suggested rate of weight loss is too high (2 1/2 to 7 1/2 pounds/week).
Comments: Weight loss is never "fun and easy" as claimed. Reliance on a specific product does not teach healthy, lifelong eating habits.
