the most common reaction when people go
on a diet to lose weight?
They eat less, depriving
their body of good essential nutrients.
What happens next? The body receives less
nutrition and less nutrients and as a result
they start losing their muscular mass. In
other words muscles become the source of
nutritional reserves for their body. When
people stop their dieting they go back to
eating as before but they have less muscle
mass which is precisely what they need to
help burn calories.
is our weight loss system different?
This weight loss system
is different because it actually
feeds the body correctly, it does
not starve it. The reason
most people become overweight is due to
nutritional deficiencies. When you don't
feed the body correctly it craves more food
than it actually needs; it craves sugar
and fat. People often give up on diets or
"cheat" because they can't stand the hunger
pangs. It becomes too hard.
No Matter how good your nutrition,
if you aren’t absorbing the nutrients –
It’s just a waste!
In your small intestines there are
finger-like protrusions called villi or
villus. It is through these villi that
absorption takes place. Through the
years, your villi become damaged and
break-off. Things that damage your villi
Water & Soil Toxins
Unhealthy foods make villi
unhealthy, flatten out the villi and
decrease absorption capacity. These
tiny, finger-like structures along the
wall of your intestine are essentially
“gatekeepers,” helping your body absorb
more nutrients, vitamins and minerals,
while protecting you from toxins. The
healthier your villi, the more
efficiently you can absorb the
nourishment your cells need–and the
healthier you’ll be. Herbalife’s
products are scientifically formulated
to support healthy “villi.”

Why do I eat more than my body can burn
the food a person eats does not give the
body the nutrients that it requires, the
body will demand more in an effort to obtain
those nutrients. Therefore, a person may
eat more calories than they need and cannot
burn them up so it gets stored as fat. That
person can also have excessive cravings
for sweets and fatty foods. When the correct
nutrients are supplied this habit can be
broken as these cravings can be greatly

is created by the body by processing the
food and nutrients it receives and effectively
distributing this to all the cells of the
body. The better the quality of those nutrients
and their ability to be utilised by the
body, the more energy the body will generate.
is the best way to ensure my future health?
The body's many systems will function
properly only when supplied with all
of the nutrients they require. When
they do not, they can break down and
problems can arise. If the immune system
were functioning at 100% on a constant
basis, this would make it very difficult
for other organisms to cause illness
in the body.
Why a balanced nutrition
A balanced nutrition plan should provide
bodies with balanced levels of energy,

does water have to do with weight loss?
Water plays a very important part in
the weight loss process. The kidneys
cannot function properly without enough
water. When they do not work to capacity,
some of the load is dumped onto the
liver. One of the liver’s primary functions
is to metabolize stored fat into usable
energy for the body. But if the liver
has to do some of the kidney's work,
it cannot work at full throttle. As
a result, it metabolizes less fat and
more fat remains stored in the body.

in Fat Metabolism and Weight Loss"

one main meal, allowing our clients to
gradually change their eating habits
so that they can maintain the results long

other diet programmes that our based on
3 shakes and offer no long term perspective.
So finish these other programmes and the
weight goes back on. Other diets are based
on low fat where they replace the fat with
carbs, not a great option if you were
already eating too many carbs!. And other
programmes based on counting calories where
you get a crazy scenario so someone is missing
meals so that they can up for save some
calories for the weekend. That's a great

it. The programmes promote

fried foods, salt and sugar in the diet
