I had lost 40lbs. with Herbalife products with no side effects. As with any diet or lifestyle change, you have to follow through to get results! Follow the routine: shake, snack, shake, snack, healthy meal. Snacks should be healthy! The distributors can be a little pushy, but my distributors were a great support system and wonderful cheerleaders for me! I was with the Baltimore, MD. community and the group is fun, supportive, and motivating. My experience has been great!
Herbalife is a helpful way to lose weight or maintain your weight. People think that losing weight by only try this product and not working out or eating a healthy meal. The results start working after a few weeks or up to a few months, Herbalife should be taken for your entire life, not for the moment. People should stop thinking that is product is going to miracles less than a week. I used to have back pain for months and I tried Xtra-calcium or joint support and this made my back feel better and made me more active.
I started using Herbalife the end of June 2018. The first week I lost 6 pounds! Now here in mid-October I am down a total of 25 lbs! First off the key to these programs are finding a reputable distributor! The person I am dealing with does not ever push product! As a matter of fact they recommended I started out with 4 basic items! The PDM formula which is the protein base. The Formula 1 powder which is your flavor. Those two items make your shake. Then they recommend their tea. And the last item they recommend is the Aloe drink. On my own I decided to purchase a few other products. The Aminogen and the cellulose. As a matter of fact I was asking about certain other products my Herbalife distributor told me I did not need them at that time. Most of the complaints on here and readings are due to unrepresentable unscrupulous distributors.
The product itself works if you follow the program! I drink two shakes a day and have a very well-balanced healthy meal for dinner. As well as to high protein snacks between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner! I work out moderately. When I walked in the door I was 284 lb at 55 years of age. I am now down to 258 lb! They have tons of different recipes for different flavor shakes so you don't get bored. As well as recipes to make different food items with their protein base! I have tried many programs over the years and none have seem to work for me!
I find this the best fit for me! I highly recommend finding a reputable distributor in your area and trying this product out! My A1C from my diabetes went from 7.3 to 6.2! Like any other weight loss regimen if you do not follow the regimen you will not lose! Many people do not work the program correctly and want to blame the product! Again I highly recommend Herbalife! It has changed my health and has giving me astounding results! Good luck to everyone!
I am so excited to report that in just 4 weeks I lost 2kg. I wake up and drink a shake, take the 5 supplements. For lunch, I drink a shake and take 4 supplements and at dinner, I have vegetables with a small portion of salmon. NO carbs, no snacks, just water all day. I am excited to see how much I can lose in the new few weeks.

In my experience it is not good for health. I took two months this shake, meantime avoided tea, coffee, sweets, etc as the part of instructions followed by the club persons. And I lose only 1 or two kg weight invariably. But, my sugar level dropped down alarmingly then under treatment of health issues like headache - vision problem, etc... I can't recommended this product to anybody.
I started the three day trial and it made me queasy. I spoke with my sponsor and they said they would help me with the return but when I went in for help all they told me was that nothing was wrong with the product. That's fine. I contacted customer service to return and that was three weeks ago. They transfer me from one person to the other and I have gotten nowhere. I would not recommend this company to anyone.
Herbalife is a fraud company. They are supplying duplicate/without barcode products to their customers. Their MD ** has also accepted without barcode if his company has sent me products then this is a big mistake. Company itself promotes of buying products directly from them instead of buying from outside. But this so called fraud company has supplied me product without barcode. I have been getting calls from Herbalife to handover them the boxes that doesn’t have the barcode. This means they are trying to capture the boxes in their custody so that I cannot raise a complaint against them. They are not at all bothered about my health. Although I have asked them multiple times to get my health checkup done. I have all the proofs available with me. Pl do not use their products. It's harmful for your health.
This product caused me severe liver enlargement, gallstone and gastritis. As per my doctors I could have ended with total liver failure if I had consumed it for a longer time. I was misguided by the agent claiming it's FDA approved, it's not. She also said it's food, it's not, it contains several product unfit for human consumption. Also the agent said it has no side effects. Another lie. Frauds. Cheats.
I'm getting excessive cold after using Herbalife milkshakes. The worst part is it has been years I took the shake, still I'm suffering with this side effect. I'm getting cold very often and every time I get cold, it takes a lot of time to subside. Has anyone else suffered this way and have find a solution. Please share with me.
I became a member of Herbalife team through **. He used to be very helpful especially when he was getting me involved with the membership. I bought some products and later on couldn’t take them properly and couldn’t sell them as well. Then I gave up and change my mind to quit from the membership. I quit and sent them all products back to the company. But unfortunately couldn’t get my money back. It was cost me 700-800$ approximately. It has been one year and still unfortunately couldn’t take even one step forward. No one answers my inquiry. No one tells the truth.
The only truth I have so far, they are basically confiscating my money illegally. My bank told me there is no received money from Herbalife. Even the company told me they deposited the money into my account. My bank denies it officially. So I don’t like to deal with this company anymore but keep advertising this company with this worst reputation. Don’t get Herbalife if you don’t need a headache and big trouble.
I tried the pre workout, the peach tea and also the Liftoff and no results. It’s makes me super tired every time I drink it!! I tried it once and thought maybe I didn’t do it right or whatever so I continued to try for a week and nothing but tiredness!!
I had joined above said centre on 11.09.2018 with good expectation to improve my health along with my parents. My parents left the centre within a short period and continue taking herbal products still. Myself is continuing to attend centre and taken shake and Afresh for 20 days with understanding that product will be taken from their centre only and I will continue exercise etc. After 20 days completed I started taking products from their centre at 19% discount only. Now today that lady Monika asking me to continue taking the product at the centre only. Therefore I discontinue going for exercise and continue taking the product from other sources. This shows that how much there is transparency in their centre. She has opened the centre only for business purpose and nothing else.
It's great experience but consultation with an expert is required for a better result. NU cosmetic give me advice for this product thanks for that. They have good and UK facility and providing better service to the clients.
The system Herbalife has does not let you unsubscribe to their marketing materials. I have tried numerous times. I am able to enter my email however once you it submit it never connects to the server.
I've been using Herbalife products for 20 days. It has altered my hormones and now my periods doesn't stop. Tried to contact the agent but no answer from her. It affects the hormones so please clarify my query.
2 weeks ago (17 Sept 2018), I bought products through someone who sells herbal life. The products were manufactured in 2016 September, expiring September 2018 - in the next few days. Mistakenly, the agent ordered 3 out off the 5 products wrong. I asked the agent to exchange this, but they had no access to a phone so I had to call herbal life myself. When I called, the lady who answered the phone had no appetite to help. She just told me to give to tell the agent to sell the items to someone else. I tried to explain that the agent is 500km away. She said sorry there's no return policy, you will have to make a plan and ended the call. So I want to know what kind of business is this where customers are treated like this and sold expired products. Obviously there's no way I will use up a moisturizer and finish it in 1 week.
It's really very bad experience, whereas during purchase they take responsibility that it's good for health and it's not medicine. They says it's food, but will gain weight if we stop using it. They don't care if you gain weight after using, only suggestion is to take it for 1 more time and place order, if we ask for refund they start showing true colors by asking weight pictures. How can they think everyone should take weight pictures every day. But really bad service at Hyderabad whom I contact by WhatsApp. My advice is please don't waste your amount by believing them.
I have used Herbalife for the last 3-4 weeks and lost 8lbs in weight as well as reduced other measures. I strictly followed the plan given and started to go back to the gym most days before work. For me, I needed a kick start, after getting myself into bad habits with eating and being lazy after work, all triggered by a health issue. I found the products to be expensive and I found the referral system to get your products cheaper, another name for a pyramid scheme which is illegal in some countries. I found my rep to be polite and had no issues with him and the products combined with my new found fitness regime worked. But, I do think it comes down to the same old adage, if you're going to lose weight, you need to make some healthy lifestyle choices, review what you eat, eat healthy, drink less alcohol and exercise a lot more. I think I could have achieved the same results without the products.
I ended up going to Holland and Barrett and buying the equivalent - i.e. aloe vera concentrate, fat burn tablets, and cod liver oil. Protein shakes I am reviewing but I won't buy at full price again from Herbalife and I won't be convincing others to get it through me so I can get my already overpriced supplies slightly cheaper. If you're going to use this product, give it a trial run, everyone is different. But be prepared to put in 100% to get the results. Otherwise, don't waste your money.
I've just join this company to work for someone else as my job and my supervisor looped hole me into business and making me a business scandal. He made me want me to advertise these products thinking they are the best in the world when people are pretending are excellent when they just cheated it out with regular food in their lives. I've tried it myself for a month nearly 2 months and horribly hated it over time. They think it works on me, NO way it never and including the people I'm trying to promote on the street and the supervisor told me not to sell anything about Herbalife. Useless he say so but it's not working if people could like to know the company and the products first before they sign up.
This company is terrible for people who have or not have working jobs in Australia or in the world because basically you're just wasting all your money or saving for all buying these expensive and never work products even it's at the highest rating but it's never worked on me so this is the biggest mistake of my life. This is a cash grabbing company and I'm telling these losers to stop selling me more fraud products. The more they fraud other people in the streets, they get more better awards or achievement for being manipulating others and even friends to donate money to them for the best and from random people that they getting off from rejected application and everyone.
I'll stop working for these busts forever because this basically doesn't work even advertising around the streets by words and putting down the ad posters everywhere I go even on any social media. I never made any money from these idiots and my supervisor never explains enough about how to get clients and made excuses when he phone people about the company when they are in voicemail. These Herbalife staff members manipulation idiots just pretending that the products working on them giving great life when they don't have proper self control, plus I've tried the products, it's sucks and never changed my life in 60 days ago but same old person as before. Just have anger issues with using Herbalife products.
Remember these Herbalife products don't change people's life, they just made it worse by forcing them by buying more and more of these expensive and never works even exercising or workout. What real thing that a fit normal person would have a much better workout and eating the right foods without Herbalife because they have much better self control by not getting involved with them.
I started Herbalife in March 2017. I was 21 years old. I took it for about 3-6 months. I developed back problems. One day it was so bad, the pain of walking made me feel paralyzed. I had to leave work and take myself to the hospital. It's been 1 year and I haven't used the products since. It works with weight loss, sure, but the pains it brings isn't worth it. Now I have a ton of this product in my house, never touching it again. It's just spoiling away in a shelf somewhere. My doctors do not recommend. And another thing that won't go away? The people who sold it to me. They keep texting me to this day about new Herbalife products. I'm not buying it.
I tried the weight loss programme a couple of years ago. With exercise I did lose weight. I had to stop products as I had bad cramps after a couple of months. I assume it's to do with the intake of milk. Greatest downfall are the suppliers/vendors. A then close friend of mine was a seller, once he found out that I found someone locally selling Herbalife, rather than being happy I was trying this product he stopped talking to me. The lady I used was found on the Herbalife website. She came, took my measurements and weighed me. I made a note of all measurements for myself. She came out almost each week to check up on me. Then after 4 weeks sent me my progress, entering a larger weight to start off with showing a big loss, she was very happy for me and thought continuing product will help me further. When I corrected her she said she made a mistake, but still by continuing the products will help me lose weight.
After the cramps got worse, I stopped Herbalife. After 2 years now, I see on Instagram and other social media all these different programmes they offer now. The breakfast plan, free trial they send you some sachets of shake and small sachets of tea. I had now gained weight and thought rather than purchasing 2 big tubs of shake I'd ease myself into with the breakfast shakes. I texted the seller sending her pictures of what I had seen, ''free trial'' she sent me the link saying to place the order where the free trial would cost me £15. Which I did. I again had cramps, went to the doctors was told maybe it was the milk. So now I order the same trial pack to try with soya/almond milk she sent me less tea than what should be in the package, when I questioned her she told me oh she must've sent it out incorrectly. That she will get more tea sent out to me. Never got it.
As the almond milk worked better for me. I decided to go all out and place a weight loss program order. I placed order on the Sunday, sent her a text to let her know. She replied to say she will get product out asap. Wednesday came I still had nothing. By now I am talking myself out of this whole healthy thing (we know it take motivation to want to lose weight). Thursday I have message her asking where the products are. I was told she was still waiting on them. Friday now I've messaged her asking for a refund as £142 is a lot of money to waste as I literally had no more motivation. She replied that's fine send her my bank details as she will need to process refund now because in the evening she was going on holiday for 2 weeks. I tried another seller and was told as I've used someone else before I can't use them. Now 2 months later messaged and placed an order.
She had the nerve to call me and say I wanted to check your definitely going to use the product and not cancel again... which I had to highlight the only reason I cancelled was she didn't have the product. Well I again have paid for postage so ask her to post products to me (was a Thursday) so I can start on Monday. She told me that's fine. She will come and see me Monday (today) to take measurements and have a chat, and that I can drop her off at her house so I can see where she lives in-case I ever need to know. She basically wants a lift home after I'm spending £150 with her. I said ok.
Monday morning I get a text saying she hopes I have an amazing week, and how she will bring the products with her after 4 pm! I've replied saying I thought we agreed they would get posted so I can start today, she replied saying she sent products to her friend and royal mail have lost them and she should've messaged me to let know she wasn't posting them. It feels like all the seller want is your money. I have expressed how annoyed I am. As there's always something. Wish me luck if these product's turn up.
I requested a refund from Herbalife due to the fact I had an adverse reaction to their products. I'm being told it takes up to 4 weeks to do a refund. How in the world is this possible when it only takes them a few seconds to debit your account when you become a member. They received their product back a week ago and I haven't heard anything else from them. This company is very shady and their distributors are no better. They push these products and make you believe that they are best products in the world. They lie like a rug to get you to purchase them. Beware. The distributors are wolves in sheep clothing. I will never ever do business with this company again.
I lost 13 pounds in 3 months. I changed my lifestyle. No diets so I was not hungry or without energy. I started using Herbalife products before. I never thought it worked but now I can only recommend it.
Herbalife is probably the WORST company I have ever dealt with. They are also massive LIARS! Be warned and do not believe the 30 day money back guarantee that they advertise as this is completely untrue. I bought the products and used them for a week but throughout I had a reaction to them and suffered massive stomach pains, I was very unwell and my doctor advised me to stop taking them. I got in touch with ** who sold them to me, ** on Instagram (beware) and she agreed to give me a refund and asked me to send the products back, for which I did and paid £12 to do so.
I am still waiting for my refund and she now refuses to give me my money back, I have called the customer services number and no one got back to me after they said 48 hours. This is literally the worst experience I have had. The products themselves are also very dangerous so take them with caution, there are so many ingredients in there that don't even make sense, you are better off following the body reset diet which is natural smoothies which are a balanced meal none of this radioactive crap!!
I found this product to be extremely helpful. I have a motor neuron disease and am physically unable to maintain exercise programs due to other health issues, including epidermolysis bullosa simplex and PCOS etc. None of the diets recommended by doctors or specialists were having any results. I devoutly followed Atkins, CSIRO heart foundation, Bodytrim. I gained weight. I spoke to a nutritionist and a weight specialist and they both said they were sorry, but it seemed that I could survive on a peanut and there was little hope to lose weight. These diets and processes were costly and disappointing. I decided to try this product after the birth of my child, it was breastfeeding friendly and instead of gaining a kg per week as on other diet programmes, I lost a kg per week.
I had so much energy and felt great. I have had to stop purchasing this product however as it is not affordable. If you have the income to support it, it's fantastic. I found the best diet they offered was near $700 per month AU. Worth every penny if you can afford it. For me that worked out to $175 per kg lol! But I watched others without my health issues shed easily 10 kg in the first month and feel great for it. I tried the basic diet plan at $250 per month and it had no effect on my weight, but I didn't gain more as on other diets. I found the consultant I dealt with to be money oriented and it made me uncomfortable. I later met another consultant that was lovely and in the business for the right reasons.
One of the worst experience with the Associate Ashsish ** who deals in these products and stays in TDI Kundli - Sonipat Haryana. This fellow in totally unprofessional, arrogant, ill-mannered. He is a cheat of the highest degree and sells these products at very exorbitant rates compared to other associates. If confronted, never returns them. Even forcefully sells its products and hardly picks the phone when tried to return them. This Associate try to fool so BEWARE of this fellow... HE IS A CHEAT.
These Herbalife guys are cheats. Product is good but the associates are very cunning and money minded. I gave money for a product with one associate in Bangalore and he never delivered the product. I stopped the product itself and moved to Amway. Amway has better professionalism and good associates so don’t try this. Else you need to be an associate yourself but it is not worth it. Try Amway instead.
I have done business with Herbalife for many years. Their customer service has gone way downhill in the last year. My credit card company kept blocking my order so I tried to change the card on Herbalife's system but it did not work on the recording. I was told that it could not be changed. The order was blocked five more times. Herbalife did not even call to let me know. I finally got them to change it but the next month they used my old card and the result was it was blocked again. You would think I could get help. I waited 30 minutes for a supervisor who then changed the card but I was told my order would take a while to get. They refused to send it out in a quicker way even though it was their fault. I am considering using another company. Thanks for letting me air this complaint.
Herbalife is a good product. The formula one, which is your meal supplement, taste more like smoothie than a diet shake. In overall the products are of good quality. If you take as recommended you should have results. I lost 40lbs my first round, it is a lifestyle change but the results are great. The people who sell it can be a bit pushy but if you overlook that and get to know the products offered you can understand why it has been in business over 30 years.
