    Hi guys!

    My friend at work is starting herbalife and I've decided to give it a go with her.

    My shakes arrive on fri, I quickly went for vanilla and straw in hope that I could mix them up with a bit of fruit in case I hate them..... Firstly can I do that???

    I'm sure it'll come with instructions but I'm limited to info so I'm here to ask....

    What about tea and coffee?
    The snacks part... I take it they are calorie controlled/fat related ? If I didn't want to buy the expensive bars could I have an alternative?

    Any help to get me prepared would be very much appreciated and I hope to chat next week with how I'm getting on!

    Have a read of some of the diaries and have a google. Yes you can mix with fruit/ice/peanut butter even angel delight. Snacks should be high protein and a dinner or lunch without white carbs. It's important to snack x

    I have been using herbalife for the past year. For various reasons I have changed - I did consider celebrity slim because of the shakes, but the no carbs bit wasn't good for me. I have had some carbs with my herbalife - my consultant told me to go for complex carbs. So whole wheat pasta, brown rice etc. i would have less pasta and mix in more vegetables for example. The other thing that my consultant told me was to have "a colourful plate".

    I certainly feel a lot better than I did this time last year, more energetic plus have bought clothes in smaller sizes.

    i'm hoping that a change in my diet plan will boost my weight loss and I can get back on track (I've not lost any since Christmas)

    i used to to mix frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries etc) into vanilla shakes and blitz with a hand blender. Cool and refreshing for lunch on a hot day. A spoonful of peanut butter in chocolate shake us also nice. There are various blogs around with recipes and ideas to jazz up the shakes.

    I have have had the bars for snacks, but also nuts, fruit and yogurt. Perhaps try some carrot sticks or veg snacks for a change?
