Starbucks is selling a cup of tea which is more calorific than a Mars Bars

Starbucks’ new Citrus Mint Green Tea Latte contains a whopping 321 calories in every 470ml ‘grande’ sized cup – more calories than one average-sized Mars Bar and two standard 355ml cans of Coke.

These drinks contain 39.2g, close on 10 teaspoons, of sugar, mainly from the citrus & mint flavour syrups……

Matcha green tea, the tea used in these drinks,  is full of catechins, which are some of the most potent and beneficial antioxidants. Why oh why counter the benefits by adding so much sugar?

Starbucks claim this new range “uplifts the mind and spirit”….. No, it give you a huge sugar rush, insulin spikes which can be catastrophic for the body, and a then a sugar crash…….



If you want the benefits of a high quality green tea based drink, consider the Healthy Herbalife Instant Beverage, available in 3 flavours

Less that 10 calories each drink, AND it burns calories as well!!

5 Reasons Why Endurance Athletes Need Fuel 24/7

John Heiss of Herbalife explains how to ‘Eat to Compete – 5 Reasons Why Endurance Athletes Need Fuel 24/7.’

  1. Athletes need to fuel up in the morning, since their stored fuel reserves will have dropped during an overnight fast.  Training and racing take a toll on the body, and starting the day with a healthy meal balanced with carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals provides a solid nutritional foundation for performance.
  2. Hydration is an essential need all people share.  Because hydration directly impacts athletic performance, it is even more important for athletes to keep fluid levels topped off – especially during a demanding event. Hydration is essential, as are electrolytes – important body salts which support proper muscle function and help regulate body temperature
  3. Carbohydrates are the primary fuel during exercise and they’re essential to keep the body running.  In an endurance race, calories are king and getting enough is essential for performance.  Making sure to get plenty of carbohydrates both before and during the race is key, and proper nutrition also helps shorten recovery time, which is very important in a multi-day event.  The use of carbohydrate electrolyte beverages in a race is often essential for endurance athletes, to maintain prolonged performance.
  4. After a race, the body needs the right ratios of carbohydrates and protein to begin recovering.  Recovery is two-fold, and requires carbohydrate for replacing glycogen stores as well as protein for rebuilding damaged muscle.
  5. Additional nutrient supplementation may also be useful where the nutritional needs of athletes are so extreme that they can’t be met with food alone.  But that being said, it is important to keep in mind that supplementation is just that – a supplement to a regular healthy diet.
    Every athlete should get the majority of their calories and nutrients from whole foods, primarily healthy sources of healthy carbohydrates – whole grains, fruits and vegetables – and protein from lean meats, poultry, fish, low fat dairy products and plant sources such as soy.

High Cholesterol? Beta heart® Launched In EMEA

Beta Glucans and Heart Health14492466_10157496308125182_4191577911181653723_n

No doubt you’ve heard about the heart health benefits associated with a diet that includes consuming oats. That’s partly because oats are good sources of the soluble fibre beta glucan.

When it comes to naturally boosting the immune system by optimizing its response to diseases and infections, Beta Glucans are crucial weapons in the fight to stay healthy. But because the body doesn’t produce beta glucans naturally, the only way to get the compound is through outside sources

Introducing Beta heart®


High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Beta-glucans contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.*

Beta heart® is a nutritious vanilla-flavoured powder that contains the key ingredient OatWell™ oat beta-glucan. Oat beta glucan has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol.

*Coronary heart disease has multiple risk factors and altering one of these risk factors may or may not have a beneficial effect.

OatWell™ is a trademark of DSM.
HEART UK Charity Registration Number 1003904.

Key benefits14469724_10157496307765182_2067423722554715088_n

1 scoop of Beta heart® provides:
– 1.5g oat beta-glucans
– High in fibre (3g)
– Source of protein
– 25 kcal
– Sugar free

The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3g of oat beta-glucan.


Whatever your age, lifestyle factors can play a big part in raising your cholesterol. Take control of your health in 3 simple steps.



Step 1: Eat well:
Reduce your intake of trans and saturated fats with simple food swaps:
-Wholegrains over white bread/pasta.
-Oily fish or lean poultry over processed or red meat.
-Nuts, seeds or soy beans over ready-to-eat snacks like crisps.

Step 2: Get active:
Being active helps to increase the ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL) in your blood. It stimulates the movement of fatty deposits to the liver, which helps to keep the heart and blood vessels in good condition.
150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week is all you need** – try 30 minutes, 5 days per week!

Step 3: Boost your diet:
High in fibre and a source of protein, one serving of Beta heart® also provides 1.5g beta-glucans; a soluble fibre found in the oat bran from oats, which helps to lower or maintain your cholesterol.*

Are You A Breakfast Skipper?

A Herbalife HEALTHY Breakfast.
A Herbalife HEALTHY Breakfast.

Q: What did you have for your breakfast this morning?
A: Oh I don’t have time..I’m in a rush to get the kids off to school then I have to race off to work.

If this is you?… Read on!

Tips to help you stop skipping breakfast

When you get up in the morning, you’ve gone a pretty long stretch without eating. And even though you’ve been sleeping, your body has been tapping into stored fuel to keep your systems going. So if you don’t top up your tank in the morning, you’ll lack the mental and physical energy you need to get through your workout and your workday. Not only that, the breakfast habit is associated with better weight management and a better diet overall. The vast majority of those who have successfully lost weight, and kept it off, eat breakfast nearly every day.If you regularly skip breakfast, try these small steps to establish a healthy breakfast habit.

  • Start small and light
    Ease into the habit with small portions of easy-to-digest foods that are nutrient-packed. Try a protein shake with fruit, or a dab of nonfat cottage cheese or a hard-boiled egg with a piece of fruit on the side.
  • Break your meal into small snacks
    You don’t need to eat your entire meal at once. Sip on your shake throughout the morning, or have your cottage cheese or egg first, and your fruit an hour or so later.
  • Get up 15 minutes earlier
    An extra 15 minutes in the morning can make all the difference to those who are rushed to get out the door. You’ll not only have time to make something quick, you’ll also give your system a chance to wake up.
  • Eat what appeals to you
    There’s no rule that says you have to eat ‘breakfast food’ in the morning. A few bites of leftover chicken and veggie stir-fry might just do the trick.
  • Don’t rely on just ‘coffee and a muffin’
    Breakfast should include some protein!

Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix is a Healthy Meal on the Go

It’s a sad truth – and it also sounds like a paradox – but millions of people around the world are both overfed and undernourished. The fact is, malnutrition can exist even when calories are plentiful – it just requires too much food with too little nutritional value. The modern food supply is overloaded with highly processed, high calorie, appetizing foods that are lacking in vital nutrients. On top of that, most of us aren’t as physically active as we should be.

Herbalife’s #1 selling product, Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix, is a great product for people who want convenient, healthy nutrition.
