This is what we say about Herbalife. It does not claim to be high in protein and it isnt; however it is very high in carbs 52% (of the 26g serving) and contains an astonishing 36% sugar. It contains 4 different types of sugars and we are confused how this can help anyone lose weight or claim to be nutritional and healthy meal! We believe Herbalifes Formula 1 shake will give you a very short-term energy boost from all the sugar followed by fatigue and hunger a short time after. It is more beneficial to have a higher protein content than carbohydrates and sugar because protein keeps you feeling fuller for longer. There are 42 ingredients in a 26g serving of Herbalife Formula1!
