Well if it’s good enough for Cristiano Ronaldo, it’s good enough for me, so I’m trying Herbalife… quite a few of you have contacted us about the healthy eating plans and so I thought we’d give it a go.  

Like most mums, I have yo-yoed with my weight since the children were born. Let’s face it as much as we love them, having babies wreaks havoc with your body. Then once they are here, you never get time to stick to a proper eating plan, always tired, we find quick ways to eat – and they tend not to be the ‘oh I’m hungry, I’ll have an apple’ quick-fixes either… more the ‘I have no energy, I’m tired, I need a treat of chocolate and crisps’ variety.

So no matter how we try on our own, we always tend to slip back into old ways because we love food, oh and a glass of Prosecco or two. Don’t we?

But it’s not just about losing weight… it’s about being healthy. And I’ve found having Herbalife shakes make me feel better. It’s as simple as that.

I’m now in my 50s and so approaching menopause and all those delights, so I am much more conscious of the transition my body is making from the one that made babies, to the one that’s trying to step into the next stage.

I met Herbalife wellbeing expert and coach David Forbes, he’s based in Scotland, and sat down with him in Perth and he took me through the benefits of a Herbalife. David, who looks in his late 50s, has been taking Herbalife products for 14 years now and looks the picture of health. He later tells me he’s in his Seventies…

Why shakes/smoothies?

Healthy, quick to whip up and packed with great nutrition – Herbalife shakes are complimentary to modern busy lifestyles and provide a nutritious alternative to traditional, high calorie breakfasts.

Consultant nutritional therapist to Herbalife, Miguel Toribio-Mateas says: “Soy has been found to speed up the body’s ability to burn calories, balancing blood sugar as well as providing a healthy snack which can support energy levels and help build lean muscle mass.

“Protein shakes are a viable way to introduce good quality protein early in the day and the blending process is brilliant for the body – enabling nutrients to be rapidly absorbed which can support energy levels, digestion and weight loss,” added Miguel.
