I have to take today to thank Herbalife for making my health venture so much easier. Today and yesterday, my husband and I did not make it to the gym. Usually I would feel guilty about having 2 days in a row off from a workout, but because I can control my caloric intake with the Herbalife meal replacement shakes, I'm able to stay on track. The Herbalife shake meal replacement is 170 calories with milk and the powder, sometimes I add some frozen fruit or powdered peanut butter which brings calories up to 250 max. Not bad for a meal! Herbalife focuses on the importance of having the right amount of protein in your diet for prolonged satiety--fullness feeling--as well. Each of their shakes has 9 grams of protein in it, plus they recommend boosting it some with their Personalized Protein Powder (5 grams of protein per scoop). They are also low in fat--1 gram per serving--and decently low in carbs as they have only 13 grams per serving.
The other thing I like about the shakes is the cost; a Herbalife shake (prepared with milk and some fruit) is on average $2.50 per meal. I honestly don't know of another place I can get a low calorie AND nutritional meal for that cheap. Having these shakes will definitely help me keep my goal attainable (and guilt free on days like today).
Anywho, I'm headed off to enjoy my wild berry and yogurt shake with a small side salad for dinner. Here's to a simple, nutritional and easy meal!
