Three weeks with Herbalife. My take on the big Health Lifestyle Company

Image
What is Herbalife? Herbalife is a lifestyle system that was started in 1980 and has health supplements ranging from protein shakes, vitamin supplements, bars and more. It has a big following and sponsors various sports teams and individuals such as La Galaxy, Cristiano Ronaldo, and the Israel Olympic Committee just to name a few.  It is a multi-level networking company that is introduced to members by other members by talking about the benefits of the supplements etc. Then getting people to be representatives for the company and introducing more people to the products and lifestyle.  There are lots of companies that do this, such as Forever Living, Juice Plus, Younique, Fredric Mohra (FM World).  I am not here to diss the way the companies are run as I have tried many of them as a distributor and found that way of work is just not for me.  However, as a person who is very conscious of what I should eat because of the way my weight also affects my joints and what agility I have left bec

The physical act of chewing Every time anyone puts some food in their mouth there is the act of chewing the food. You may think this is the easiest way to get the nutrients that we need and yes it should be. However, it not always the case. Unfortunately, when a disabled person eats food it can be the case that we may not be able to chew the food sufficiently. This means that there are often

So the year has nearly finished! What a crazy one.

Oh my goodness what a crazy year this has been. A quarter of which has been in yet another lockdown because of the pandemic. If you didn’t know about it, where have you been? This year has been a year of almost normality yet not! There have been things that have been shut, new rules to follow set by the government. Then more changes as some of the rules were reversed. And as I write more things are happening.  In the sense that other countries are opening up for us to travel to but not everywhere. What has this year given me? This year has given me a real sense of change in myself. Yes, I have cerebral palsy but the fact I moved house at the end of 2020. That was a big change in its self after 23 years in the same place. It was a positive move although there were challenges. What hasn't this year given me? The biggest thing is that it hasn't allowed me to get the dream home the way I wanted but that's ok. There are more changes ahead but they are for the future of me and m
