Eight Weeks to a New You!
weight and feeling great!
You're into your second week on the Thermojetics®
Success Program and feeling a surge of
energy thanks to Cellular Nutrition®,
Herbalife's exclusive nutritional approach
that provides your body with the important
nutrients it needs to function at its
best. This week we address several important
concerns that can affect you when you
change your diet, whether the change is
simply to reduce your caffeine consumption,
increase your vegetable intake or begin
the Thermojetics® Success Program for
Overcoming the challenges
of dietary adjustment.
Whenever you change your diet, it's natural
for your body to go through a period of
adjustment. This can be accompanied by
physical symptoms, which may include headaches,
constipation, diarrhea and hunger pangs.
Herbalife's weight-management programs
are designed to minimize the symptoms
of dietary adjustment and provide you
with natural herbal-based products that
can ease the transition to a new way of
eating, enhance your overall health and
assist you in achieving your weight-loss
goal. Let's look at some scenarios you
may encounter as a result of changing
your eating habits and what you can do
What should I do if I get
a headache on my weight-management program?
If you experience a headache as a result
of dietary change it is likely to be caused
by one of two things: inadequate fluid
consumption or inadequate calorie intake.
You'll be less likely to experience this
if you drink at least six to eight glasses
of water a day in addition to your shakes
and other Herbalife beverages. If you
have chosen the Thermojetics® Green Weight-Management
Program, you should use soy milk, rice
milk, non-fat milk or juice to make your
shakes. Be sure that your one meal includes
a good serving of protein, such as chicken,
fish or tofu, together with a green salad
and vegetables. You may also need to include
one additional snack per day. Good choices
would be a Thermojetics® High-Protein,
Low-Carb Protein Bar or Thermojetics®
High-Protein, Low-Carb Roasted Soy Nuts
with Cardia® Salt.
If you are on the Thermojetics®
Gold High-Protein, Low-Carb Weight-Management
Program, be sure that you are eating every
two to three hours. Choose from the wide
variety of Thermojetics® High-Protein,
Low-Carb snacks or from foods on the "Green"
list for the program.
What can I do about constipation
Any change in your diet can bring about
constipation, especially when your body
is adjusting to fewer calories. If you
experience constipation, it is important
to increase your water consumption to
at least eight glasses per day. In addition,
try adding one-and-a-half teaspoons of
Herbalife's Active Fiber to each shake
you drink. This should help.
While dietary change may
cause constipation in some, in others
it can provoke diarrhea. If diarrhea is
your concern, and you are using milk in
your shakes, try switching to soy milk
or rice milk. If you are using juice,
try changing to another type-cranberry
juice is a good option. Or use soy milk
or plain yogurt in place of juice for
a few days and then resume with your favorite
juice once your system has adjusted.
What should I do when I
get hungry on the program?
If you find you get hungry a few hours
after your Thermojetics® Formula 1 Shake
or Thermojetics® High-Protein, Low-Carb
Shake, add two tablespoons of Thermojetics®
Performance Protein Powder to your shake
recipe. If you are on the Thermojetics®
Gold High-Protein, Low-Carb Program, you
can also add Thermojetics® High-Protein,
Low-Carb Drink Mix to your shake. Each
fruit flavor (Orange, Peach Mango and
Wild Berry) provides 15 grams of protein
and only 70 to 80 calories. Powering up
your shake with these extra protein formulas
will definitely help you feel more full.
Adding the fiber products, such as Activated
Fiber or new Active Fiber can also decrease
Whatever challenges you
may face as a result of adjusting your
diet, Herbalife has a solution. Listen
to your body and be sensitive to its needs.
Most people find that by the end of the
second week on the Thermojetics® Success
Program any symptoms have cleared and
they are feeling better than they have
