In brief: Herbalife

Herbalife is a company that makes all kinds of products, and you would need to look carefully at each one to decide if it would be safe and helpful for you.
I agree with my colleagues that sustainable weight loss and maintenance depend more on healthy eating and exercising than relying on external diet pills and processed "diet" foods. You will end up spending more money taking those also.
