Herbalife Nutrition has been surprising me for over a decade now, since I became a coach in 2004, with its focus on progress and innovation. Our doctors and nutritional experts always seem to be at least one step ahead and yet, always careful not to play into the hype of things, which, without doubt, can leave us members in frustration. However, nothing is brough in or replaced before the science first checks in. And that takes time. And we can and should wait.
Our Formula 1, almost unchanged for nearly four decades, is such an advanced formula that it brought the company as the leader in weight management and meal replacement industry with 31% of the meal replacement worldwide market share. Which is massive.
Starting my day with anything else but Formula 1 is not an option for me and my family. My boys want it before bed time too. And when they come back from school. My husband goes away for a day or two without it and “I really missed having shake for breakfast!” he always says upon return. Because what is good – feels good. You know it. Your body knows it.
There is so much research on meal replacements and a role they play in an effective weight management. Independent clinical studies on Formula 1 show how combining F1 meal replacement with regular diet produced better weight loss and fat loss results than food diet alone. That is in line with the recent research on meal replacements, in general.
What I do not agree with is that some meal replacement plans are too low on calories and protein alone and that is where we are different. Depending on body composition, my clients are on anything between 1200 and 2000 calories for weight loss and way over 2500 for weight gain using F1 as a plant protein source to build muscle in order to avoid too much required protein coming from an animal source (for non-vegetarians) and to enable adequate protein intake (vegetarians).
However, weight management aside, I personally think meal replacements are misunderstood. I do not know other meal replacements, apart that some are better than the others, however, I can only speak of our Formula 1 with confidence. I would not be incorporating them in my family’s diet if it was all about weight loss. Well, for us, it has NOTHING to do with weight loss. My family and I go through 11 – 13 tubs of Formula 1 every single month, together with other Herbalife Nutrition supplements and products. My clients will know the magnitude of this as they perhaps go through only one or two tubs a month.
What general population misunderstands about meal replacements is the role they can play in optimally nourishing our bodies on top of weight management. That is because majority does not yet understand the compromised quality of food that we eat and level of nutrients in them. Just look at the food related headlines. Many do not even understand how good their bodies could feel if they truly nourished them optimally.
And Herbalife Nutrition just got better!
After four decades, Formula 1 is changing. Changing for better, of course. And we can not be more excited about it. It is cleaner and yummier than ever. It is New Generation.
- It is Vegan
- It is Gluten Free
- It is Dairy Free
- Higher in Fibre than “old generation”
- Higher in nutrients than “old generation”
- No artificial sweeteners or colours
We have three flavours so far in the UK/Europe with more being released this month and in 2019: Banana Cream, Apple Spice and Caffe Latte. Mint Chocolate coming out end of November 2018. If interested, you can take a look at them and order them at my Online Nutrition Store.
Formula 1, ideally combined with targeted Herbalife Nutrition supplements and products, can be used in multiple ways:
- As an ideal breakfast
- For an effective Weight Management, recommended with free coaching through it
- To reach Optimum Nutrition when combined with healthy diet
- As a recovery nutrition after exercise
- As a quick & balanced healthy meal replacement – any meal, any snack
- As a way to reach your protein target via plant source (Vegans and Vegetarians alike might particularly benefit from it)
- It is suitable for any age as a part of a balanced diet
So, that is it, new generation is in and I thought it was something worth shouting about. For many, it is life changing experience, for some – means to an end to get to their goal. Yes, even some of our most dearest of clients are stuck in a “diet mode” regardless how much we try to educate otherwise. Of course, we love them and appreciate them anyway. However, regardless what each thinks about it, they are better off for it and we take pride knowing we are making a difference to someone’s health whenever they drink one of our delicious Formula 1s! And we are grateful to each and every one of them for sharing their journey with us.
Here is to The New Generation of Formula 1 meal replacements! They are here to stay!
