Do you know what one of the hardest things to do it? It’s hard being the only one in the house who is trying to eat better.
Let’s say, for example, that I have decided that I should start eating better, but the rest of my family is planning to carry on as normal. Now it’s burger day in the house. Don’t worry I’ll just eat the healthy parts of the meal.
Come suppertime and here you go honey, here’s your burger patty and lettuce garnish. (more…)
Ah, water! That life-giving substance that many of us are just not indulging in enough. Yes, we could all do with drinking a little more water. And sometimes, making it a little more palatable helps.
Herbal Aloe Concentrate is a wonderfully yummy way to improve a boring ol’ glass of water. The aloe is gentle on the stomach, and helps with weightloss/maintenance.
Drink it hot or cold, this great beverage helps increase energy and alertness. Available in four great flavours – original, lemon, peach, raspberry – it is a great low-cal replacement for tea and coffee.
This one is particularly suited to sports folks as it is filled with electrolytes and as a bonus is proven to enhance the absorption of water. This is particularly helpful while flying/traveling.

We all know that water is an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle and yet it often seems to be where a lot of us slip up the most. There are many reasons for why we aren’t managing this water necessity, but there are luckily also a few changes that we can make to improve our water intake with minimal effort.
1. Have it with you
There is something about the immediate availability of water that automatically leads to a higher water intake. It’s there so you drink it. It really is as simple as that. Whether it’s on your desk in a jug or you’re carrying it around in a bottle, the mere presence of water will make a difference to how much you consume in a day.
2. Make it taste better
Many of us don’t really love the taste of water. No problem! Add a couple of slices of lemon to your water. Or strawberries or oranges or even apple slices. The natural flavours might make all the difference to you. You could also add a splash of Herbal Aloe. Not only will this product help to replenish your electrolytes and boost your vitamin c but it is also calorie free.
3. Eat your water
You can ingest a high amount of water by simply adding more real foods to your diet. Watermelon, tomatoes, cucumbers and all sorts of other fruits and veggies have a very high percentage of water in them.
4. Drink more tea
As long as you aren’t adding copious amounts of sugar and other bad additives, a nice cup of herbal tea a few times a day is a great way to up your water content. Herbalife teas such as the Thermojetics Herbal Concentrate will give you the added benefit of aiding in weight loss and the NRG tea is great at easing mental fatigue and giving you a bit more energy.
Are you a meal skipper? I am. And I’m really really bad about it. For a long time I didn’t think it was a big deal. Like, I’m not hungry so surely it doesn’t matter that I’m not eating. But it is a big deal. And it’s one that might take a while to fix. Just like it might take a while before you see the damage of all those skipped meals.
My habit? Forgetting to eat. And who forgets to eat, right? Turns out: me.
I won’t get too technical, but skipping meals can cause a whole list of problems. From messing with your blood sugar, to slowing your metabolism, depleting your muscle mass, and tanking your energy levels, not fuelling your body regularly can cause quite the mess.
And yet, how often do I find myself in a position where it’s already 4pm and I’ve just realised that I haven’t eaten the whole day? Too often…
After acknowledging that I had to make some serious changes if I wanted my health and energy levels to improve, I knew that I would have to start with ensuring that I have breakfast every day. I’ve since found that my ideal is to eat immediately after waking. Of course, wanting to eat so early in the morning is something that I actually had to get into a habit of. Luckily, drinking my food has been a lot easier to deal with than actual eating and for this I am so grateful to Herbalife.
I know that even though there will probably still be days where I forget to eat, but at least if I stick to my habit of having my shake for breakfast I can be confident that I have at least given myself an essential nutrition boost for the day.
I am trying to break the habit though.
So I’m on my way to being a former meal skipper. And I know my body is thanking me for it.
