Herbalife Healthy Breakfast Review

The most sold Herbalife programme in the world is the Healthy Breakfast - you know when your parents always told you to always have breakfast, it's the most important meal of the day? Turns out that is 100% true!

What constitutes a healthy breakfast?

Well, firstly, protein is the most important macro nutrient that you need. You see, it breaks down into amino acids, which is fuel for your body on a cellular level! Also, it's great for keeping hunger at bay, since it takes longer to digest. Together, you also need vitamins and minerals, good fats and healthy complex carbohydrates...

Secondly, when you wake up in the morning, you're running on empty in terms of hydration - while you sleep, you lose a lot of water by sweating, so it's key to get hydrated as soon as you get up!

Thirdly, we all live hectic and busy lives, for which we require lots of energy just to get through everything.

So, here's the summary:

That there is the Herbalife Healthy Breakfast. The perfect start to everyone's day! 

Hydration comes from the excellent Herbal Aloe Concentrate - Everyone knows the healing properties of Aloe, and this is a very refreshing drink you mix with plain water, giving you water a very nice taste. Plus the goodness of the Aloe helps to soothe the digestive system.

Energy comes from the awesome (and fat burning) Instant Herbal Beverage (we also like to call this Thermo) - it's a tea you can have hot or cold, and comes in awesome flavours, like Peach, Lemon, Raspberry and Original. As a bonus, each cup burns about 70 calories, making it awesome for weight loss as well!

Nutrition comes from the signature Herbalife product - the Formula 1 Healthy Meal Shake. At just under 220 calories, and giving you about 18 grams of healthy Soy protein (there are Formula 1 shakes that are soy free for those allergic or sensitive to soy!), this is the perfect meal. Mass amounts of nutrition, and low in calories. 

The best part, this healthy breakfast is quick and easy to make, especially for those people in a hurry to get to work!

2 years down the line

I have now been a proud Herbalife Health Coach for almost 2 years now. I used to be the most skeptical person about Herbalife, and when I think back, I can't even really say why. I just had this opinion about it that just sort of materialized out of thin air I guess.

When my wife and I started using the products, we merely did it because of us being too lazy to prepare "healthier" meals, and the people we bought the products from were raving about it.

Anyway, I have totally changed since the first week of being on the products. I lost 2.4kg in my first week, and my wife 1.7kg. And we weren't even that strict!

I now absolutely love the products, in the last two years there hasn't been a single day that I haven't used a Herbalife product. And I think my success in the business so far (still doing it part time though), has totally been determined by how passionately I love and use the products.

So, if you want to be a Herbalife Health Coach, the first order of business is use the products, and make sure you love the products! Just by doing that alone, you can help lots of people with their health, and make lots of money doing so!

WANTED: Health Coaches to fight the war on OBESITY

I am proud to be a Herbalife Health Coach, and to know that I have made a drastic difference in many people's lives already by helping them lose weight and live more healthily.

As Health Coaches, we are fighting a never ending war against the likes of fast food companies like McDonalds, Burger King, KFC and so many others. These huge corporations have an almost endless marketing budget, so they just keep on promoting their unhealthy, high in fat and low in nutrition "food".

I am writing this post to ask anyone out there to join our war on obesity. Sign up to do your part as well today! As your sponsor, I promise I will give you the guidance and support on how you can also make a difference to someone out there!

Here's how you can get started:

Simply visit this link:

At the top, select your country.

Next, where it says "Sponsor's Herbalife ID Number*" - enter my Herbalife ID Number there, which is 46278882.

The next line asks for "First 3 Letters of Sponsor's Last Name*" - type in "van" there, since my surname is "van der Walt" :)

And lastly, on the line that says "Purchased an International Business Pack (IBP) from your Sponsor?*" - select "No" there, since you have not bought a IBP from me.

Now click Next, and follow the on-screen instructions.

If you need any help, call me up on Skype (rudivdw), or drop me an email ( or call me (+27 21 556 4297)

I look forward to hearing from you!

Product Review: H3O Pro

I am unfortunately not one of those people who get an absolute kick out of going to the gym and working out. I really wish I was, but sadly, I'm not. I know my own fitness levels has something to do with it, but I never have been able to actually push myself past that level where exercising actually becomes more something that I WANT to do, rather that something that I HAVE to do.

I am happy to report, however, that I'm slowly but surely starting to enjoy it. A good friend of mine once told me, I should rather be doing strength training than putting all my effort into cardio, and for the first time, I'm actually following his advice.

For the last 4 weeks I've actually been training at the gym with a personal trainer. All those machines always look for intimidating, so I decided it's time to call in a pro and follow his advice.

So, I've only been at the gym twice a week, but it has already made a huge difference. I can actually start feeling results - can't see the results quite as much, but it's getting there.

We do a full 1 hour workout every time, and I tend to want to pass out while working out, or even get nauseated (thank you Sheldon from Big Bang Theory for teaching me the right way to use that word hehe). So, ever since I always take some of Herbalife's H3O Pro with me, and it really helps me to actually finish the workout without falling over!

Here's what the product looks like:

Pretty cool hey!

Anyway, the flavour is a slight lemony taste, and you mix one sachet with 500ml water (which I usually go through in my workout). It has a moderate amount of calories (just under 140 kcal), and is filled with all kinds of minerals and salts, which are essential for a great workout!

The key things we need to keep in mind when working out and taking a sports drink like H3O, is this - H.E.A.T.

H is for Hydration - so H3O rapidly hydrates your body during exercise. Sweating while working out (something we can't really avoid here hehe) causes us to lose essential electrolytes (salts), such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and chloride. Replacing these helps you hydrate a lot quicker, and helps fight things like cramps, fatigue and headaches.

E is for Energy and Stamina - the key carbohydrate in H3O is isomaltulose (big word hey!), which is a naturally derived source of sugar that releases energy more slowly than glucose. 

A is for Absorption and Antioxidant Protection - Energy releasing B-vitamins help improve the absorption of nutrients, meaning your body can more effectively use the nutrients you get by drinking H3O Pro.

Also, because we tend to breathe a lot more while exercising, that increases free radical production, which is known to cause damage to our cells. So, some key antioxidants like Vitamins C & E and mixed tocopherals help protect the body's tissue against the damage caused by free radicals.

Lastly T is for Taste - H3O doesn't have a very strong and overwhelming flavour, something to keep in mind when getting a sports drink like this...

There you have it! H3O is a perfect workout drink, and I never hit the gym without it!

Herbalife stock rising and rising

As you know, Bill Ackman publicly denounced Herbalife a couple of months ago, calling it an illegal pyramid scheme and short selling the stock with $1 Billion. That basically means if Herbalife's stock price were to drop, he'd make money (which was all he's after in the first place). As we all know, Herbalife is a 100% legitimate company, and have been doing business for 33 and a half years now, and they currently do business in 88 countries. That means 88 countries have approved the marketing plan, and most importantly, that the products are safe and effective to be sold in each of those countries.

I am happy to report that Herbalife's stock is still on the rise, and it has just hit a 52 week high. In essence, this means mr Ackman has made a loss of about $300 million so far. Herbalife is still experiencing massive growth, and have had DOUBLE DIGIT GROWTH for the last FIFTEEN quarters (almost 4 years). And the only way Herbalife can grow like that, is if we, as distributors, are actively out there helping customers with the amazing products.

Here is a link to the article:
