Dear Distributor and the Reader called 'Anon"
Thanks so much for this info. I have checked the ingredients and can see that this a reasonable meal replacement product. The macro-ingredients like the soy protein, etc should cause no harm and the vitamins and minerals are fine as long as the total intake via the shakes does not exceed the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) for vitamins A, D and E. Recent research has just revealed that taking these vitamins as supplements in excess of the RDAs can cause problems, so it is best not to overdose on these vitamins. The energy value of 910 kJ with skimmed milk is also below the 2100 kJ per meal that one would recommend for anyone who is trying to lose weight. So now that you have provided me with the breakdown of the Herbalife shake, I would say that you can certainly use it to replace one or two meals a day, provided you also have a 'normal' balanced meal with fruits and vegetables, lean meat or fish and a source of extra dietary fibre (brown rice, crushed wheat, etc) for the 3rd meal of the day.
Best regards
DietDoc
