Herbalife Success Guide
For successful weight loss and healthy results
By David Heber, M.D., Ph.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.N. Chairman of the Herbalife Medical and Scientific Advisory Boards
My experience with thousands of patients over the past 25 years has taught me that a
one-size weight-loss plan does not fit all. Individualized approaches to getting into
shape work best–approaches in which people use programs customized to their own shapes and body composition, approaches
that fit their lifestyles and their personalities.
My theories and philosophies of weight loss are reflected in the Herbalife Weight Management program. A healthy diet is one in which you
eat an amount of protein in your diet that is matched to the protein needs of your body. And it helps you build or maintain
lean muscle, which burns calories and helps keep your metabolic rate up. You learn to watch the calories you burn at rest and
how fast you can lose weight on the number of calories in your personalized weight-management program. You also learn
what your target weight (based on the proper ratio of fat to lean) should be and see how it compares to what you think you
If you tried to get all the protein you needed from foods such as meats, you would consume too many calories, because protein
usually comes with extra fat calories in these foods. But by using a variety of delicious, protein-enriched meal-replacement
shakes, you can easily obtain the protein your body requires to build or maintain lean muscle mass and feel full and satisfied.
High-protein shakes, along with healthy meals and exercise, can help you realize easy and lasting weight loss. A healthy meal
also is rich in colorful fruits and vegetables. This is because the substances that give fruits and vegetables their "color" (called
phytonutrients) may provide a number of health benefits. In addition, this program guide also discusses the role of exercise
in building lean body mass (muscle) and in reducing stress.
Choosing the right meal plan for your program is easy with the Lean-Protein Estimator.
This convenient tool uses your height, weight and gender to suggest a meal plan
for weight loss – either A, B, C or D. With this information, you can learn on
how to personalize shakes, snacks and meals without ever counting calories.
In my practice at UCLA, I have helped people learn about their individual bodies and, based on that, how to eat better and
lose weight.* Today, I am proud to be the Chairman of the Scientific and Medical Advisory Boards for Herbalife International,
one of the largest distributors of high-quality meal replacements in the world. Herbalife has embraced the ideas and the science
that I have used in my practice. I hope this program helps you achieve your goals and your ideal weight.
With Herbalife Program, weight control is as simple as 3-2-1!
