His experience makes me feel good about this company. I love that they’re not the snake oil fly by night type of supplement company that so many others are.
I have never heard of Herbalife Nutrition but I agree breakfast is really the most important meal of the day. I am prone to headache and stomache when I skip breakfast. I also love simple breakfast that is easy to make and Formula 1 Shake sounds like a perfect option.
That’s awesome that it’s publicly traded. It’s nice to hear the insight on the company.
I agree that a healthy breakfast is very important to start the day. That is why I make sure I am eating breakfast everyday. A very good article.
Breakfast is very important meal.
I take screenshot of the guide for breakfast
Shocks my result at that guide is. Im a bussy bee? Seriously omg i need to take a break
Sometimes I skip to eat breakfast.But now I would do it for my healthy reasons.
Having a dietetics degree, I’ve seen many people (“nutritionists”) who’ve only read a few books and want to make various claims without truly understanding the science behind food and nutrition. But now after reading Dr. Chen’s background education and his support in Herbalife products, makes me feel more comfortable and confident I can trust this brand. Thank you!
Somehow I simply can’t gave a proper breakfast daily😕 and it sucks. That’s an amazing article.
It’s so wonderful to know Herbalife is backed by an expert in the field! I agree that breakfast is so important.
I don’t know how people skip breakfast! I couldn’t imagine. I’d be so hangry!!! It’s definitely a must for me. Thanks for sharing 🙂
I tried having a huge or healthy breakfast before but I don’t think it works for me except if I have a really big tiring day coming up. These days, lunch is the biggest meal for me.
I was very ignorant about having a healthy breakfast. Slowly over time, I have learned how having a healthy breakfast benefits you. 😊
Good food and good supplementation are key to keeping me feeling good. I’ll have to look into this company.
We always have breakfast. I have heard about Herbalife for years, but have never tried them.
I have heard so much about herbal life in the UK. I totally agree that breakfast is the most important meal in the day. I need to make sure I put enough time to get one before work but am always in a rush which is a shame.
I thought Herbalife had some great nutritional products. Unfortunately they were very unsuccessful in India. I wonder why.
Eating breakfast is really, really important. This was a nice read highlighting that.
I totally agree! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
For some reason I thought Herbalife was just a diet pill. I agree though on one point for sure, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
I use to believe breakfast wasn’t a big deal. Boy was I wrong. I def won’t take it for granted tomorrow.
I’ve not heard of the brand before. I agree breakfast is important.
I wouldn’t mind having Herbalife. It sounds like a good alternative for breakfast for me.
Eating breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Its night to hear about the thoughts of the company.
