Herbalife has been making weight loss products for years, so I thought it was time that I finally gave them a fair shake (no pun intended). Here are my thoughts on .
You can find Herbalife meal replacement shakes on Amazon for about $30 bucks. That’ll get you 30 servings, which comes to about $1 per shake. Talk about a wow factor. You couldn’t get a cheaper meal unless you were looking at Wendy’s value menu. So it definitely gets an A+ from me.
The nice thing about Herbalife shakes is the variety. It comes in a number of different flavors like Dulche de Leche, Wild Berry, Pina Colada, and Café Latte (to name a few). I actually decided to go for the most basic flavor — French Vanilla. It was just okay. It had a slight milky taste with a serious vitamin after taste. That I could’ve done without. So the vanilla flavor was really just “meh.” But because Herbalife has so many choices, it gets a B score from me.
APPETITE BLOCKER: C+
When it comes to being an appetite blocker, Herbalife shakes are kind of a mixed bag. On one hand, it has 9 grams of protein, which does an adequate job of making you feel full. But it only has 3 grams of fiber, which means you’ll probably end up getting hungry after a few hours. In order for me to actually stay satiated, I had to mix my shake with a lot of fruit. That’s not good when you’re using your shake as a meal replacement.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE: B
Herbalife shakes does a decent job on the nutritional scale. It only has 90 calories, just 5 of which is from fat. It also has 25% of your daily serving of vitamins and minerals. That’s not bad for a meal replacement shake. The negative is that it has 9 grams of sugar per serving. That’s a little high for me, which is why I gave it a middle of the road score.
Herbalife beats a lot of shakes hands down when it comes to its price. Unfortunately, it falls short in all the other categories.
