Dear Tumi
If your BMI = 18, then it is a good idea to try and gain some weight. I have written some articles on the subject of weight gaining. For basic information click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Diet Basics' and 'Weight gaining' and read the articles. Companies like Fresenius Kabi and Nestle, among others, make meal replacement supplements Phone Fresenius on (011) 545-0000, or the Nestle Consumer Services at 0860 09 6789 and ask about Nutritional Supplements to boost your energy intake. Basically you need to eat more food either by gradually increasing how much you eat at each meal, or by taking supplements IN ADDITION to your regular meals (not to replace meals), or by having more snacks between meals. If you use a meal supplement such as Fresubin, with or without fibre, at the rate of 200 ml 3x a day, then you should gain 1 kg per week.
Good luck

Yes you can take Herbalife, you can either loose weight, pick up or maintain with Herbalife. If you loose you have 2 shakes per day and one meal, if you want to pick up, you have 3 meals and 2 shakes and if you want to maintain, you have one shake and 2 meals
