I’m not a doctor. I don’t know much about diseases. But I know a lot about health!
I’m not an influencer. I am neither attractive nor articulate. I talk a little and only when I know and have something to say.
But I have a success story.
For eight years, I haven’t had a single flu or other illness.
How did this happen?
The secret is simple: hygiene, prevention, immunity.
Hygiene is part of prevention, but I deliberately separated it. I thought of it as something that has entered our lives and that every modern person maintains decent hygiene. Hmm… I don’t feel like it. And for quite a few people. Education, upbringing… let everyone answer for themselves why.
In addition to the usual hygiene, prevention also includes additional measures. All the media and spam lovers have clogged the information space with them. I won’t either.
The basis of health is immunity. It is mainly achieved with proper nutrition and physical activity.
What am I doing?
I haven’t missed having a proper breakfast. This is not difficult for me at all: I mix a cocktail of Formula 1 shake and Protein drink mix in a minute after drinking a great aloe tea. Sometimes I add other natural immunostimulants.
During the day, I eat well, at least 5 times and avoid harmful foods as much as possible. I don’t deprive myself of meat or anything useful by eating regularly and at about the same time.
I reach my daily norm of pure water. I don’t drink carbonated or sugary drinks.
When flu season approaches, I add to my diet or increase my intake of a few things – Immune Buster, Herbalifeline Max, Multivitamins, and sometimes Xtra-Cal.
I don’t count calories and macronutrient ratio. They come naturally by following some simple rules that we teach in our club. I supplement my usual meals with plenty of fiber and complex carbohydrates. I also use the company’s natural face and body cosmetics.
And that’s it! It’s simple!
For the more curious, I will also explain why I do this.
Why Shake Formula 1?
- Because it contains all 114 nutrients that a person needs every God’s day. Of these, more than 60 are involved in the work of the immune system. The absence or even reduced intake of just one type of nutrients can cause serious disorders of the immune system.
- Unfortunately, it would be very difficult for a person to procure the necessary quality and clean products from the market, and even “from the village”, in order to secure this wealth.
- The shake is designed to provide, without the use of meat, essential amino acids traditionally obtained only from meat (ie even if you are vegan, drink a Formula 1 shake and your nutrition will be complete!).< /li>
- Thanks to the shake and the protein drink, I easily achieve a protein-carbohydrate-fat balance (expressed in kCal, not grams!) 30%-40%-30%, without fear of excess calories.
- Thanks to the shake, I easily achieve a caloric deficit and lose weight. Not in kilograms, but in fat! Very important!
- Obesity has become a serious problem that is often neglected, especially by overweight people.
- Obesity significantly lowers immunity.
- I have lost 30 fat kilos of my weight and have been maintaining it for eight years now, gaining muscle and reducing body fat, which makes me feel great and want to exercise!
- Shake Formula 1 helps me to eat well, despite the products available in the store network.
- Malnutrition is seen in elderly people who do not pay enough attention to themselves to “have for the children”.
- In this way, they actually achieve the exact opposite – they become a considerable burden for their children from a moment on, instead of enjoying good health.
- Often we, as children of our parents, are often late in noticing how they eat – usually only when they “lie down on our hands”.
Why Protein drink mix?
- Because that’s how I get the protein I need plus twenty other micronutrients – a wonderful and filling addition to a shake and a very effective substitute for milk, which we’re still not sure what kind of milk it is…
- The main function of the immune system is to recognize foreign bodies (antigens) and produce specific proteins (antibodies) to recognize and destroy them. Obviously we need a lot of protein. I get a lot of it with this morning cocktail.
- Protein deficiency damages the immune system.
- Malnutrition causes infections, infections – to loss of appetite and a vicious circle is formed, from which it is difficult to get out.
Why don’t I give up meat?
- The complete exclusion of animal foods leads to weak immunity.
- Meat contains essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the human body, unfortunately for vegans and vegetarians.
- The lack of meat in food leads to a disorder of the nervous system and the senses, which reaches a psychological level – the organism is so deceived that it has acquired everything it needs, that it believes itself until the moment when it is necessary to use it (and it’s gone).
- Well, imagine what would happen if the cleaning companies didn’t do their job for a few days… stench and diseases!
- In order to cleanse the body, it needs about 25 g of fiber per day.
- It is good that they are from different natural sources and include oat beta-glucans.
- Even better if they are combined with Thermojetix tea and Aloe Mango.
- They help me to cleanse my body without starving. According to some specialists, hunger helps cleansing, but if I can achieve a wonderful effect without hunger – why should I do it to myself?
Why Thermojetix tea?
- Because it is a wonderful natural energy drink, without harmful or artificial ingredients. It gives me the energy to face all the challenges of the day, and it also helps to clear fat and other harmful food residues.
- It does not affect the heart badly in larger quantities like coffee.
Why do I eat a varied diet?
- A monotonous menu leads to weak immunity. We do not manage to get the micronutrients, which, even in very small quantities, are extremely important for immunity.
Why do I eat regularly and rhythmically?
- Irregular nutrition leads to weak immunity.
- All processes in our body are relatively inert. Maintaining a uniform rhythm allows him to prepare for the metabolic operation that follows.
Why multivitamins (they are different for women and men)?
- Herbalife Nutrition multivitamins are a unique complex, reflecting the specifics of men and women and containing not only vitamins, but also other important micronutrients.
- Vitamin A – protects against infections.
- Vitamin B in all its varieties – takes part in all processes related to maintaining good immunity.
- Vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant. You can’t exceed, but you can damage your gastrointestinal tract if it’s not in the right form and combination.
- Vitamin D – is actually a steroid hormone that has the ability to influence about 2000 genes in the human body, involved for example in the body’s ability to fight infections and chronic inflammation. It also produces over 200 antimicrobial peptides.
- Vitamin E – a powerful antioxidant
- Zinc – an enzyme activator for leukocytes, but excess intake can have the opposite effect.
- Copper – active participation in the synthesis of immune cells.
- Iron – damages the immune properties of the blood.
- Selenium – minimal amounts, but extremely important for the synthesis of proteins necessary for the immune system.
Why Herbalifeline Max?
- Fats are also extremely important for the body’s immunity, but it is important what exactly they are, and these are some of the most suitable.
- This product contains the purest possible Omega-3 fatty acid, produced from fish that does not have the ability to retain heavy metals in which the world’s oceans are so rich. It is also purified through the finest possible (carbon) grid.
- Essential fatty acids are important for immunity.
- Omega-3 successfully fights all kinds of infections.
- It is extremely important that the ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 be no more than 1:4 (and it is usually 1:18-1:20).
- Omega-6 is contained almost everywhere, and Omega-3 in very few products and less.
Why Immune Buster?
- Proven to contribute to normal function of the immune system.
- Protects cells from oxidative stress.
- Reduces feelings of exhaustion and fatigue, if any.
- Improves iron absorption.
- Means for normal metabolism and energy production.
- Contains EpiCor® – yeast that improves immunity.
- Rich in vitamins C and D, selenium and zinc.
- With a refreshing berry taste.
- Why it supplements the intake of vitamin D, calcium and magnesium, copper, manganese and zinc, also necessary for good immunity, especially when a person does not have the opportunity to go to the sea and most of the time is indoors.
- Water participates in all processes in the body. It is also necessary for the skin and mucous membranes – one of the most important shields against all kinds of infections and disease-causing organisms.
- Dried mucous membranes do not have the necessary protective properties.
- The skin is the largest organ and is directly involved in the immune system. Mucous membranes too. Cosmetics, together with other products, keep the skin and mucous membranes in perfect condition, which allows them to fight effectively against the hostile world around us.
Why natural immunostimulants?
- Of all the meals of the day, I replace one or two with Herbalife Nutrition products. For all others, I use usual products.
- Natural immunostimulants are garlic, turmeric, cinnamon, citrus fruits, blueberries and other berries, red peppers, spinach, broccoli, ginger, oily sea or ocean fish and seafood, bee pollen, raw nuts.
- With them it is also important to maintain diversity. A simple rule is to eat as colorful as possible.
Why no junk food?
- Harmful foods – these are common products containing saturated and hydrogenated fats;
- These are carbonated drinks, including carbonated water (soda);
- These are sweetened drinks and “natural” juices;
- These are foods containing aspartame (or its varieties);
- These are foods containing formaldehyde or its derivatives;
- These are foods containing MSG – monosodium glutamate (Chinese salt) or its varieties.
- These are foods rich in sugars and fats, which are difficult to digest because of their processing and in which, due to being too busy processing them, the immune system is blocked and engages it in unusual activities.
- It’s alcohol – even in small amounts, alcohol neutralizes the effect of even the healthiest diet, even if only organic products are on the table. Disrupts metabolism. It burdens the liver, and with it the purification of the body. A glass of concentrate can disrupt a person’s metabolism for a week. Alcohol – these are empty calories (no nutritional value) that turn into fat. Outwardly thin people who consume a lot of alcohol are actually very fat and without muscles.
Why physical activity?
- According to specialists, physical activity improves the work of the immune system. To keep fit, the body needs no less than three 30-minute workouts a week.
- Physical activity gives pleasure and improves the quality of rest, and rest is also important for strengthening immunity.
Finally, a couple of “disclaimers” 😉
I can now claim that I understand nutrition and have six years of successful experience.
And maybe that’s why I’m going to say that the things that worked for me don’t mean they will work for you too – each person is a separate “universe”.
The products I have written about in the article are not drugs and are not intended for treatment.
Herbalife Nutrition products are not intended to prevent, deter, or treat.
All weight control claims refer to the Herbalife Nutrition Weight Management Program, which includes, among other things, a balanced diet, regular exercise , a sufficient amount of fluids per day, use of nutritional supplements when necessary, as well as adequate rest. Results may vary from person to person.
Please follow the recommendations of your personal physician.
Like everyone, I’m not perfect.
I still haven’t achieved everything I would like to. For example, to eat slowly, to exercise more regularly… To dream and pursue my dreams more persistently. But I have planned it and it will happen!
