    Herbalife?

    So I have to go to a mate's hen's night next weekend, and an aquaintance will be there who is a pyramid-scheming-over-the-top Herbalife douche. Or distributer. Mostly douche.

    Anywho, her and her pyramid scheming underlings are always all over my facebook feed sprouting "I can't believe it" claims about how it's done pretty much everything bar cure cancer. The latest and greatest was that one client "Lost 1kg in one day!" Yeah, we all pee now and then. But I digress.

    Has anyone had any experience with it? Because it seems like a load of overpriced, overhyped crap from the outside, selling easy solutions to those who don't know any better and are too stupid to read food labels or educate themselves, and I fear (or maybe hope) that after four or so wines I will be telling her this in no uncertain terms.

    Anyone got any info that might stop me?

    Though a quick web search shows that some people do indeed claim Herbalife cures cancer. Give it time, I'm sure you'll see some of them on your facebook feed.

    Anyone got any info that might stop me?
    Once again, from a quick web search I'd go so far as to say that any info would just encourage you.

    I was on Herbalife for a few months and lost a bunch of weigh. Its does work but its just an OVERPRICED meal replacements plan with a support group(crazy people) that are looking for a quick fix and dont want to learn about nutrition. It seems like there is a lot of money to be made with it with all the lazy people out there but I wouldnt even bother with it. OMG and that 24 sport line...its like $75 for protein! wtf!

    Distributer discount : 25 %, Mentor ( or some other ****ty title ) discount : 50%. Even at 25% their protein is 3 times more expensive than regular whey.

    But arguing with these people is a complete waste of time, most of them won't ever admit you are right because then they'd become scumbags that scam people in order to make money so it's a survival strategy for them if they live off of the sales.

    Well, coach, you're still 20kgs overweight and dont know how to lose it eating actual food. Doesn't sound all that "well" to me.

    I made the mistake of going to wellness center with a retarded friend of mine to get a free smoothie... I was stuck there while she was listening to their whole bs sales pitch about how amazing their fitness line is. I sat there, half amused by the amazing lies the dude was spitting out. She probably would have bought into it were I not there to mind fck her with some truth!

    great way to put it. There is a guy at the gym that is all about starting up his new store...in an old herbalife store that went out of business like they all do. During the presentation I was told that their protein powder would cure allergies, including nut allergies. Just a little research shows a long history of class action and other suits against this company, constant scandals, they are still not FTC v. Amway compliant, and a myriad of other issues that arise from the way that they conduct their business. These people hide behind their new CEO, but literally screw thousands of stupid people out of their money every day. When confronting them about this they said well "thats how everyone else in america makes money." .... I am still blown away by the audacity of these people. The moment I hear of someone that actually wishes to complain once they get hit by $5000 in losses trying to get "supervisor" which is 33% of the company, yet the average return is only $915, I fully plan on helping them use the DA's office and other tools to rid this company's infection within my county.

    yes it was worded that way on purpose.

    These people prey on idiots and especially now in a bad economy it is extremely irritating to see people pour their money into some company that has a proven record of bankrupting private citizens with a dream of owning their own company.

    The Rebuild Strength that you're referring to have Whey and Casein protein to be exact...hints why its more expensive.

    My brother is their distributor, he's being using their products for over a year. And still he doesn't have decent sallary! He is constantly in debts, his cellphone bill is few hundred euros (which is a lot in my country, like 10-50x bigger than usual). He gets up early, comes home before the night, and still he is not making money that will allow him to have decent life. Everything he gets from them, he spends on products so he can sell it to people. Considering that average sallary in here is arround 200 euros, and that monthly bills are over 300 euros, people don't have money to buy it because great part of them are also in debts or have credit loans etc.

    And did I mention that Herbalife is partner with Monsanto and that Herbalife soy protein has GMO?! Maybe he is my brother, but I'm buying protein and other supplements at store. The company is brainwashing those distributors, telling them bunch of lies and they are buying it (both lies and products). And later you can't convince them they're wrong. They are calling themselves fitness or wellness coaches and they haven't been at the gym since they were born.

    Conclusion: Herbalife is one big marketing fraud. They have a lot of lawsuits too. Just stick with your supplement brand you're using and laugh at face when someone wants to persuade you to become Herbalife user.

    If he likes any of the products on this site here, tell him that I will sell them to him for double the cost. The GREAT news is though that I will pay him a 10% commission on whatever he buys. Its too good to pass up, IMHO.

    Well for most MLM businesses, you make more money being the recruiter than the salesman of the product. In fact, the salesmen are the customers for most MLM companies. They make more money from the sales people's quota of product purchase than from the actual sales of product to end customers. So they keep pitching the "make a ton of money with MLM" but hardly tell "the people who make a ton of money are the ones that are recruiting people like you". If your brother wants to try spewing the hype that he was spewed when he joined, he may make some decent money sucking others into the game. Of course at that point he may feel he joined the dark side.

    I know this is a really old thread but I see that someone bumped it anyway.

    A friend of mine is an Herbalife rep, and she posted this picture today. I wonder if the Herbalife Rebuild Strength really does take the place of all those supplements. Has anyone used it, or know anything about it?

    A. Try the products first
    b. Find out how the company marketing plan works...

    I've done a lot of research into Herbalife and is absolutely nowhere near being a pyramind scheme. For you who don't understand the difference between a pyramind scheme and MLM.
    A pyramid scheme is when you get people to give you money as an INVESTMENT with no product to sell and no end result. You get more money the more people you get to invest in NOTHING.

    Herbalife works on the basis that once you reach a certain level, you earn money off your downline distribtuors (which might I add, doesn't come out of their pocket, it gets paid directly from the company) but before you even earn ONE PENNY off these 'downlin' distributors... you must be selling AT LEAST £2000 in retail to begin with... so it is very different from a pyramind scheme.

    As for the protein shake, I've known people get massive results using it. The way I see it, if it sponsors the World's strongest man and athletes such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi... along with Rafael Nadal. It must be good stuff.

The latest and greatest was that one client "Lost 1kg in one day!" Yeah, we all pee now and then. But I digress.

    Has anyone had any experience with it? Because it seems like a load of overpriced, overhyped crap from the outside, selling easy solutions to those who don't know any better and are too stupid to read food labels or educate themselves, and I fear (or maybe hope) that after four or so wines I will be telling her this in no uncertain terms.

    Anyone got any info that might stop me?
    My wife uses it because she is under weight. It's working for her. 3 meals plus 2 shakes a day.

    I use it to lose weight because I tend to eat junk food between meals. Instead of eating crap I take a shake as a snack with protein and it works. I really don't give a crap what people say about it. I'm not selling it I just use it. Use it wisely and it will work. If you are poor get some cheap whey compound with artificial filler instead. See if that works for you.

    Cool You know...

    I normally never reply to these types of things. I think they are ignorant in the fact that the posters have absolutely no idea what's going on with any of it.
    I've made thousands of dollars in Herbalife, It's a fantastic company inside and out, and while it may seem overpriced to some... do you know that I charge literally 5 times the amount of a program to people as a corporate personal trainer? 5 times.

    I pretty much do the same thing as a Healthcoach and a trainer. Except with Herbalife? Guaranteed results, guaranteed potency, a way to teach others what you've learned and to help them in their journey. Just because someone may still be out of shape, if they lost 80 pounds, you think they could help someone else do the same? Well golly gee I bet they could.

    As far as substantial health claims, it's made very clear to each individual that such claims are not to be made. And 9/10 it's the changes to a healthy active lifestyle that helps someone in the first place.

    Listen, I know that the idea of Herbalife seems crazy but if we are educating and helping the obesity epidemic in America as well as the nutritional needs across the globe? Don't you think you may want to send merit rather than hate?
