How does Herbalife help in cutting calories

Rule of thumb : If you want to lose weight you need to either increase your daily activities by exercising, or by decreasing your daily calorie intake. If you want to lose weight for good then reduce the calories that you have in your diet.

Daily calories intake for
Women: 1600-2000 calories
Men: 2000-2500 calories


Notes:
*To lose weight, 500 calories should be subtracted per day for each pound you want to lose every week. However, losing more than 2 pounds (or 0.91 kilos) per week is not recommended.
* To gain weight, 500 calories should be added per day for each pound you want to gain every week.
* For a more balanced approach to a 1 pound per week weight loss, you have to increase your activity. Decrease calorie intake by 250 calories per day and exercising to expend (use up) the other 250 calories. This approach prevents a decrease in your metabolic rate and promotes increased lean muscle mass.
* Never go below 1500 calories per day, at this low intake there’s a greater chance you may miss out on essential nutrients, some of which may help boost energy levels.

If the goal is to lose weight, let say :

1 pounds or 0.5 kilos per week, you must subtract 500 calories per day from the current daily intake.

Hence, you've managed to decrease your calorie intake in 1 month to...
500 calories x 30 days = 15000 calories/month

Note that, 1 pounds ( 0.5 kilos ) = 3500 calories

15000 / 3500 = 4.3 pounds

You'll be able to lose 4.3 pounds in a month (or 1.95 kilos in a month)

-----------

Cutting Calories

But how do we cut our calories?

Option 1: Reduce portions of food
Option 2: Switch to lower calorie food which can last you for 3-4 hours. (eg HL shakes)
Option 3: Do both; option 1 and 2.

-----------

Herbalife - Cutting Calories and Decrease Appetite

F1
- a meal replacement which is low in calorie
- help you maintain your energy, stamina and muscle mass

F3
- shapes u up by eliminating fat and replacing it with muscle
- increase your protein intake can help you lose weight faster and keep it off

Teamix (refer link for more benefits of Teamix)
- speeds up your calorie and fat burning
- calms your cravings and energises you

-----------

Calorie in Herbalife Shapeworks

F1 : 1 scoop = 44 calories
F3 : 1 scoop = 20 calories
Teamix : 1 teaspoon = 5.8 calories

There's a slight difference in calories of F1.

F1 Chocolate : 44.5 calories
F1 Vanilla : 44.5 calories
F1 Strawberry : 44.5 calories
F1 Cappuccino : 42.5 calories
F1 Tropical fruit : 44 calories

So if u take 3 scoops of F1 + 1 scoop of F3 + 400 ml of water and later drink 1 teaspoon of teamix + 400 ml of water after you drink the shakes. Your meal replacement only totals up to 158 calories.

Replace 1 meal with shakes = 158 calories
Replace 2 meal with shakes = 158 x 2 = 316 calories

So for Dinner = 2000 - 316 = 1684 calories

You have 1684 calories left for dinner, and I don't think for dinner you'll consumed that much. The most would be 600-900 calories for a plate of rice with chicken curry and mixed veggie. And guess what? You still have more calories left to spare.

You’re cutting down your calories but at the same time you can still enjoy eating your favorite food. Replace you typical tea time snacks; curry puff and banana fritters to a much more healthier snack such as yogurt, digestive biscuits, whole meal bread and fruits.


Let me show you an example of 2 meals; 1 without HL shakes and 1 with HL shakes.

Menu without HL : 3 meals a day + teatime

Breakfast
~ Nasi Lemak (small packet) - 150
~ Teh tarik - 120

Lunch
~ 1 bowl of rice - 170
~ Fried Chicken - 300
~ Mixed Veggie - 100
~ Teh Ais - 120 cal

Tea Time
~ Curry puff - 240
~ Hot Tea - 120

Dinner
~ Rice + Side dishes - 900
~ Plain water - 0

TOTAL = 2220 calories

2220 - 2000 = 220 (The max calorie intake per day for females is 2000)

Increase of 220 calories x 30 days = 6600 calories/month

6600 / 3500 = 1.9 pounds or 0.9 kilo [GAIN WEIGHT]


Menu with HL : replace 2 meals with 2 shakes + 1 meal a day, with teatime (optional)

Breakfast
~ F1 + F3 shakes - 152
~ Teamix - 5.8
~ Water - 0

Lunch
~ F1 + F3 shakes - 152
~ Teamix - 5.8
~ Water - 0

Tea Time
~ Currypuff - 240
~ Milo Ais - 120

Dinner
~ Rice + Side dishes - 900
~ Plain water - 0

TOTAL = 1564 calories

2000 - 1564 = 436 (The max calorie intake per day for women is 2000)

Decrease of 436 calories x 30 days = 13080 calories/month

13080 / 3500 = 3.7 pounds or 1.7 kilo [LOSE WEIGHT]

-----------

In conclusion...

Women:
~ If you consume less than 2000 calorie per day, you'll lose weight.
~ If you consume more than 2000 calorie per day, you'll gain weight.

Men:
~ If you consume less than 2500 calorie per day, you'll lose weight.
~ If you consume more than 2500 calorie per day, you'll gain weight.
