Healthy living

 

 

The truth is, it’s not about stop-start dieting, a magic pill or sabotaging good intentions with bad habbits. Embarking on a long-term commitment to a balanced lifestyle is essential to achieving a healthy sustainable weight. It’s a mind-shift that Herbalife’s weight control programme’s can help you with.

 

 

 

Snack Healthily

Eating five small, regular meals throughout the day helps keep your energy levels in check by maintaining a steady stream of energy. It also means you’re less likely to want to snack on unhealthy sugary foods.

 

Choose snacks that contain some protein and fibre to help keep you feeling fuller for longer, and ones that contain a good variety of vitamins and minerals.

 

Fruit, vegetable crudités, nuts and seeds or low fat yoghurt are some good options.

 

 

Keep active and drink plenty of water

Remember to keep active and aim to drink two litres of water each day. For variety, add Herbalife Aloe Concentrate or Lemon juice to your water.

 

 

Reduce Stress

To help reduce stress levels, try to avoid caffeine, choosing the healthier option of herbal tea. Herbalife has Instant Herbal Beverage, which is a refreshing drink, hot or cold.

50g = Original, Raspberry, Peach, Lemon flavours available

100g = Original flavour available

 

 

Satiety foods

When you’re trying to manage your weight, foods that enhance satiety are a good choice. But how much should you be eating?

Proteins:                                                  Fibre Rich foods:

100g fish                                                 100g Broccoli                 

100g boneless poultry                               100g Potato with skin

100g boneless meat                                  1 medium pear

2 medium eggs                                         1 medium apple

3 tablespoons of seeds                               100g brown rice

3 tablespoons of nuts                                 1 slice whole wheat bread 

 

Get Adequate Protein

Remember to always check how much protein is right for you and your lifestyle. An easy way is using Herbalife’s Lean Protein  Estimator to find out how many calories and protein you should need, and then vary the amounts in this meal plan accordingly.

Use the plan as an inspiration to cook and eat healthier.

Adapt the recipes and meal options to suit your tastes and needs.

·       For a vegetarian option, switch animal products for soy-based foods, tofu, beans and lentils.

·       If you are highly active Increase the serving size of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables in your main meals.

·       If you are controlling your weight swap bread or carbohydrate options for more vegetables, and snack on fruit or reduce your snack portion.

F1 Herbalife Shakes can be used to replace any meal, or try the F1 Express bar when you’re on the go. Herbalife Protein Bars and new Gourmet Tomato Soup are great snack options and are calorie controlled, so they don’t ruin your weight management programme.
