Every new Bride wants to look the very best they can for their BIG day, as dozens of eyes will be firmly focused on them as they walk down the aisle. A bride’s worst nightmare is that they won’t fit into their dream wedding dress and as the day approaches they are stressed out and anxious.  But armed with the right knowledge and a “Herbalife Weight Loss Plan” they can lose weight and look great in time for the big day.

For most brides it’s a weight loss challenge as they make the mistake of waiting till the last minute to lose weight, but one of the most important things to remember if you are trying to lose weight is to start early. For example, don’t try to lose 20 pounds two months before the big day. The key is to plan ahead so that you can lose the weight healthily and gradually. Don’t be tempted by diets that promise quick results. The only approach that works is creating a deficit in your total calories by taking in fewer calories and exercising more. If you skip meals your body will respond by lowering your metabolism and slowing your weight loss!

If you follow a Herbalife Weight Loss Plan you will achieve weight loss,  lose inches, have more energy and fewer cravings.

The “Herbalife Weight Loss Plan” features:

  • a single healthy meal with plenty of fruit & vegetables
  • 2 meal-replacement shakes tailored to your protein needs, and protein snacks to promote metabolism and reduce hunger
  • supplements to enhance health and cell nutrition
