David Heber, M.D., Ph.D., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.N., Director of the Center for Human Nutrition at UCLA and Chairman of Herbalife's Scientific and Medical Advisory Boards, answers some of your most frequently asked questions about the ShapeWorks® Program.*


Q: How does the ShapeWorks® Program relate to what Herbalife has provided for the last 24 years?

A: The ShapeWorks® Program extends the concept of Cellular Nutrition and builds on the successful legacy of Herbalife's Formula 1 Protein Shake, which has been on the market for 24 years. Cellular Nutrition means giving your body what it needs–nutrition that is missing from the modern diet. Protein satisfies hunger and many people don't get enough protein in their diets to control hunger and build or maintain their muscles. The ShapeWorks® Program is personalized for each dieter's needs.

Q: How is ShapeWorks® different from other popular diets?

A: The ShapeWorks® Program uses the proven principles of healthy shakes as meal replacements. The program is based on unique mixes of proteins developed by Herbalife in a high-protein, low-fat formula. ShapeWorks® allows for healthy carbs and encourages enough healthy fat for taste but not the "all-you-can-eat" fat of other high protein diets.

Q: Why is it important to know what my Resting Metabolic Rate is?

A: This tells you about how many calories you burn at rest each day and so can help you determine the right ShapeWorks® plan for you. You can also get an idea of what your target weight should be. Many people have an unrealistically low number as their idea of what they should weigh. By calculating the resting metabolic rate, we can help you set a realistic target and choose the right plan that will help you lose weight as quickly as possible.

Q: Why is protein important in a diet and how do you use protein?

A: The power of protein is that it controls hunger. Some smaller women may get enough protein in Formula 1, but for larger women and most men, adding protein to Formula 1, using 1 to 2 tablespoons of Formula 3 Personalized Protein Powder, will help control hunger and build and maintain muscle. You can optimize your success with Formula 1 and Formula 3 by using the enhancers that have been part of the 3-2-1 tradition of Herbalife. To put it simply: supplements three times a day, two protein shakes a day, and one healthy meal.

Q: How do I know how much protein my body needs to lose weight, rather than gain weight?

A: If you use the Lean-Protein Estimator, you will get a range of daily protein intake personalized for your weight-loss success. If you are on a meal plan with less than 100 grams of protein as a target, you may use Formula 1 with no added protein. Adding 2 tablespoons of Formula 3 Personalized Protein Powder adds only 40 calories to a shake, so you are getting protein without the extra calories that are in other high protein, high fat food choices.
