New Generation Formula 1

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.

How to turn your meals into balanced, nutrition powerhouses, and burn fat all day long

I have been a Wellness Coach since 2004, so nearly 13 years to date. I have, in that period, conducted well over thousand wellness evaluations, judging from all the files I still keep of everyone who walked through the door or I spoke to over the phone/ Skype. Most wanted to lose weight, some just more energy and vitality, a few who actually needed to gain weight. Some already knew that something was wrong with the balance in their nutrition. There were a few of those who came absolutely sure that their diet wass healthy, so they wanted me to confirm that was the case, in order for them to perhaps seek doctor’s help and investigate if there is something more sinister going on that would explain their lack of energy and weight gain.

One thing was sure, absolutely everyone who came to see me could benefit from more nutrition and better snack/ meal balance, some with just a few tweaks, some with major changes to produce the results they were after.Once this was addressed, everyone got a result they wanted, as long as they stuck to the plan, which is another story entirely.

One thing that always stuck out was that most who came consumed in between 25% to no more than 60% of the protein they should have. This alone would be a major reason why many had difficulty with weight management, cravings, energy dips, tiredness, slower metabolism and many more issues at a deeper cellular level.

Crustless Quiche

Crustless Quiche is really just another fancy word for one of my fancy omelette apart from the fact that it is baked in the oven. Mix 2 eggs and two egg whites (per person) with some salt and pepper and pour over some straight-from-the-oven roasted vegetables (such as carrots, sweet potato, squash) in a small tin. Serve with some salad and low-fat yoghurt. And, of course, enjoy! 🙂

Quorn Egg Omelette

I have really enjoyed this lunch today. When I need something quick and delicious for lunch or dinner, if I am not planning to having a shake, I straight away turn to eggs and I love them in all kinds of ways. I have never used quorn until recently trying some sausages. I was dissapointed with how little protein they had compared to some other vegetarian options, however, I could see that Quorn mince has got quite a decent amount so decided to give mince quorn a try, in my seemingly never ending efforts to find more vegetarian options in my diet.
