Our expert says:
I am personally not in favour of weightloss shakes and over-the-counter slimming pills and products. If you do use the Herbalife shakes to lose those 10 kg, then make quite sure that you are not taking any products that contain herbal extract or high levels of certain vitamins (esp vit A), when you fall pregnant. The reasons for this are that many over-the-counter slimming products contain components that could be damaging to the health of the foetus and excessive intakes of vit A and some minerals like chromium are not advised during pregnancy. So if the shakes help you to lose the 10 kg, that is well and good, but don't take anything not prescribed by your medical dr during the time when you fall pregnant, during pregnancy and even during lactation.
Good luck with the weightloss and in falling pregnant
