Herbalife Formula 1 

Advanced meal replacement with protein, 18 amino acids, low in fat and calories. This is an energizing, highly nutritious protein powder that provides your entire daily needs for protein, carbohydrates and essential oils. It’s low in calories, fat, and sugar yet high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients. It also helps to build lean muscle, burn fat and satisfy your appetite.


Enjoy the Herbalife shake as a meal replacement twice a day. The shake is very filling and nutritious, but make sure you have one regular, sensible, low-fat meal once a day of food you enjoy. Combine in a blender: 8 to 16 oz. of no-fat milk or juice (orange, apple, non-sugar cranberry, etc.) and 2 level tablespoons of Formula 1.

It recommended that you add ½ cup each of 1-3 kinds of fruit (such as banana, strawberries, pineapple, or blueberries) to make it delicious. You can also add fat free yogurt. Use frozen fruits for the best flavor and consistency. Blend on high for at least 1 minute.

If you don’t normally eat breakfast, having the shake in the morning will give you energy, boost your metabolism, burn fat and keep you from being ravenous at lunch. Do not skip breakfast!

Herbalife Formula 2 

This potent multivitamin, in conjunction with two shakes a day, provides all the vitamins, micro-nutrients, minerals, herbs, and trace elements you need daily.


Take one Herbalife tablet, 3 times a day with meals including the Herbalife Formula 1 shake.

Herbalife Formula 3 

The Herbalife Cell Activator is one of the most important products in the program. It cleans out the cells in your digestive tract so you can absorb nutrients more efficiently. Normally, our cells store fat and toxins and get “lethargic.”

Herbalife Formula 3 helps them release the toxins and fluids, and restores the villi in the stomach and small intestines. This allows the cells to absorb the nutrients our bodies desperately need.


Take 2 capsules with meals, three times a day. (6 a day) You’ll run low on this product first, so pay attention so you don’t run out. You’ll be able to cut back to two at a time later on (we’ll talk about it.)

Thermojetics Herbalife Herbal Concentrate (The Tea) 

This beverage offers lots of energy, burns fat, and wards off hunger between meals. It also comes in Peach, Raspberry, Lemon & Regular (tea) Mix a teaspoon with 8oz. of hot water or cold water with ice. Add sweetener (not sugar) if desired. Have a cup mid-morning and one mid-afternoon.

Herbalife Snack Defense 

This is called “Snooze and Lose” because it helps you lose weight while you sleep, controls nighttime hunger, and balances your blood sugar level! Take 2 tablets at bedtime (or take during the day for extra appetite control.)

Herbalife Cell U Loss 

This gets rid of the extra fluids that cause “lumps and bumps” that women get on the thighs and buttocks or the “spare tire” men get around their waist. Take one tablet 3 times a day with meals.


This product assimilates and digests proteins, which improves digestion and builds lean muscle mass. Take 2 tablets with your regular meal and all protein rich meals. (Not necessary with the shake)


“The Cheaters Delight” contains elements that block the absorption of fat by passing most of it through your body without being digested. Strive to keep fat intake at a minimum. Take one or two with meals that contain any fat.

Women’s Choice 

Helps a woman lose the once-a-month bloated feeling, minimize PMS, and reduce menopause symptoms such as hot flashes. It also helps MEN reduce cholesterol! Take 1 twice daily.

Flora Fiber 

This is a wonderful product that adds fiber and friendly flora to your digestive tract. In other words it really keeps you regular. Take 2 first thing in the morning with a full glass of water.

21 Day AM/PM Cleansing 

These remarkable tablets act as a gentle “Roto-rooter to clean your digestive tract of the “sludge” build-up we all accumulate over time. Take two PM tablets at night and two AM tablets in the morning for 21 days.

Herbal Aloe Concentrate 

Just as Aloe Vera is good for your outside skin, Herbal Aloe is soothing to your digestive system. It helps heal ulcers, balances the acid/alkaline properties of your system, and makes everything in your digestive tract healthier. Drink 3 tablespoons mixed in 4 oz. of water, juice, or your shake, once or twice a day.

Performance Protein Powder 

This powerful product adds 100% soy and whey protein to your daily nutrition. Most of us don’t get enough. To determine your daily gram requirement of protein divide your current weight in half and subtract 10% of that number. Most people should get between 60 and 80 grams of protein a day. Add 1- 2 tablespoons to your shake, soups, sauces, oatmeal, salad dressings, baking, etc. No flavor, no carbs, & few calories make this a must.

Active Fiber 

This unique and powerful synergistic fiber blend helps promote: enhanced digestion, healthy intestinal flora, a stronger immune system, and cholesterol-lowering benefits. Perhaps most importantly, ACTIVE FIBER encourages regularity! Optimum usage: 1½ teaspoon 1-2 times daily. Since it is virtually flavor-free mix into your morning shake or add to your tea, aloe drink or favorite beverage. This is NOT anything like Metamucil.
