The Beginners Guide to starting Herbalife

By Kirsi Gentille


Maybe you just have not found the right weight loss program for you. There are hundreds of “diets” out there to choose from such as The South Beach diet, A Vegetarian diet, Paleo diet, and the latest Keto diet, every year there is a new dieting trend. However, there is one company that has remained consistent for over 38 years, the #1 company in meal replacement shakes and weight management programs. Their products have helped many people all over the world reach their fitness goals. Are you are wondering if Herbalife Nutrition can also help you lose those unwanted pounds.

“To start you need a plan to help you be successful in your weight management journey”.

I created this guide to help you learn more about Herbalife Nutrition and to help you get started on your journey.

First thing is creating a plan, choosing the right products, and having a nutrition plan which includes, healthy recipes, healthy snacks, an eating schedule and knowing how many calories you should be consuming daily. You should also create a daily routine that you can stick with and enjoy. Include a daily physical activity to help you burn extra calories and when you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body which helps with anxiety and stress. 

The second thing, be EXCITED about your new journey, have a positive attitude. Have an accountability partner such as your Herbalife coach. Choosing the right coach is important,  your coach should be someone that can guide you. Someone that can give you wisdom, encouragement, and a kick in the butt when you need it.

Let’s face it most people start their weight loss journey with little or no support at all. That happens to be one of the main reasons people quit and give up on their goals. I remember, I used to be the only person that was serious about losing weight. I was the girl with a shake, a salad, and everything had to be grilled not fried. While everyone around me was indulging on all their guilty pleasures and rubbing it all in my face just waiting for me to give up and fail. 

If I did not have my coach and our online support group. I think I would have given up. It’s so important to surround yourself with people that are on the same journey as you. In the group I had a place that I can proudly share my meals, get recipe ideas, we all cheered one another whenever anyone lost a pound. I mean the support was what kept me going. 

“You don’t need to be alone in your health & wellness journey.”

As a health coach, I’ve been able to help my clients get on the right program that is customized for them based on their goals and their lifestyle. I provide them with all the right tools and support they need to reach their goals and get long-lasting results. There is no one way street to weight loss or healthy living, there are many different ways to go about it. There are many different factors to consider that will help you reach your goals and create a healthy lifestyle that you will love.
