My mom is really pushing for me to try it.
Herbalife markets meal replacement shakes and snacks, as well as herbs, vitamins, minerals and natural ingredients that are said to enhance weight loss; however, there isn't enough scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of their claims. A very low calorie diet of shakes and snacks will produce quick weight loss, but that weight loss is not usually maintained. You can lose weight just as well by controlling your calorie intake and output. By eating "real food", you have an opportunity to practice new behaviors that can last a lifetime.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
