Review Summary
Herbalife is a weight loss product line, which sells a large variety of dietary supplements and weight loss aids. The company promotes many advertised benefits, some of which are "attacking stubborn fat, hard-to-lose inches and cellulite."

This company sells a large variety of weight loss supplements, and previously had a line of products called Thermojectics. This line is no longer available, but the company says that Shapeworks is its new and improved replacement. There is no indication as to why Thermojectics was discontinued and what in this program needed to be improved.

The Shapeworks® line, which we have reviewed in the past, requires the consumption of a whole array of products. We will examine this diet system and company as a whole to determine its potential success in managing weight and what type of lifestyle it requires consumers to abide by.

Concept
Herbalife markets meal replacement shakes and bars, morning and nightly supplements, power drinks and many others. The creators of Shapeworks® state that following this plan will reduce caloric intake and boost the number of vitamins users consume. The vitamins and supplements are advertised to not only augment health but also boost metabolism. There are even products designed to decrease the appearance of cellulite, although the only clinically proven method to achieve this result is the reduction of body mass.

Unfortunately, at time of print, there was no ingredient list posted online to review. This makes us unable to determine if this product line is able to perform as advertised. Also, it may be frustrating for consumers who prefer to research a product before use to assure quality and to avoid any potential allergic reactions.

Diet Lifestyle
In order to achieve maximum results from a plan, dieters must strictly follow the suggested use. Due to the many number of products sold required for use, and the simultaneous ingestion of different supplements this may be a confusing plan for some to follow. Dieters will be told to replace certain shakes for certain meals, while replacing food bars for other meals; all while ingesting morning pills, mid-day pills and nightly pills. Overall, this diet system will require diligence and organization from users to successfully follow.

We do know that the Thermojectics line utilized diuretics and laxatives in its past formulation. We are not sure if the company took these ingredients out when making Shapeworks. Though, we do want to note that many nutritionists do not recommend long-term use of laxatives and diuretics since it may rid the body of essential and needed vitamins and minerals.

Final Thoughts
Herbalife’s numerous products may create some weight loss due to the limited calories allowed, but that is if you can handle the cost of multiple purchases. This program requires two meals a day be replaced by a shake or snack bar; this could be hard for dieters to follow as it may result in hunger pains and cravings for some. Also, if this product does contain laxatives and/or diuretics these ingredients combined with a restricted caloric-intake may mean dieters are not receiving adequate levels of essential minerals and vitamins.

These weight loss plans are very expensive to use on a regular basis. The prices for packages vary from around $85.80-$212 .66 for about, a one-month supply.

There are other dietary supplement available which are less expensive and do not require the simultaneous use and purchase of additional products. Diet capsules, which contain an appetite suppressant, such as Hoodia Gordonii, can be an important part of any weight management program.
