    so theres this girl in my class spitting all this nonsense about supplements because shes an herbalife distibutor. im not one to pick a fight, so i just ignore it for awhile. but the othr day, she busted out one of these

    http://www.amazon.com/Herbalife-0103.../dp/B000A38Z6I

    and tossed around some broscience claiming it "stops fat from sticking to your body, so you take one before a meal and it helps you lose weight."

    her nonsense spouting has no affect on me. but it concerns me that these distributors take advantage of people's arogance in regards to supplement science and weight loss.

    how would you guys react in all sarcastic and serious ways? im not gonna do **** cuz id rather go the next 8 weeks of the semester peaefully

    btw, this supplement is basically pilled fiber

    Stay far away from herbalife. Consumption of their supplements has resulted in a ton of hepatoxic episodes and they are currently under investigation

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    She should also, politely, be made aware of the possible legal consequences of what she is doing. Making claims like that is not a wise idea. I would suggest she take the bottle of supps and hand it to anyone interested, and let them read and make up their minds.

    well i took a look at it when she pulled it out and told her its just fiber, looks like a hunger supressant to me. not some kind of mystical fat mobilizing anti organ glue chemical

    i didnt say the sarcastic part though lol

    and yea ive read about it being a pyramid scam too. its a weird one though because herbalife has been around for like 30 years or something. pyramids are suposed to be short lived and unable to support its structure

    They actually have some legit stuff and shaklee was one of the first to develop a multivitamin in like 1915. Idk how the company is now, but they are a pretty " green" company and have some quality products.

    This chick i know texted me the same thing not too long ago, asking me what i thought about them and about how she is going to a meeting to become a distributor.

    I just replied "When you're ready to sell real supplements, come see me".

    So keen to start my own supplement line. If herbal life can do it...why can't i?
