Herbalife Protein Shake Study
2009 - Herbalife, Ltd.
Researchers at the Seoul National University Hospital in Korea recently reported that the use of meal replacements twice daily was an effective strategy for reducing body weight and body fat, and for improving indicators of obesity-related conditions. The study, published in the February issue of the International Journal of Clinical Practice, and led by Belong Cho, M.D., Ph.D., of the Department of Family Medicine at Seoul National University Hospital and lead researcher, followed 75 obese men and women with the metabolic syndrome - a cluster of factors including high blood pressure, a large waist measurement, elevated blood sugar and triglycerides, and low blood levels of 'good' HDL cholesterol - for a period of 12 weeks. All subjects replaced two meals a day with liquid meal replacements (Herbalife Formula 1, Korean formula) but were randomly assigned to consume a diet of either a standard amount of protein - about 15 percent of total calories - or double the amount of protein from a higher protein plan. At the end of 12 weeks, both groups lost weight and both groups lost weight in the belly area. But, in the subjects who followed the diet most strictly, the people in the high protein group lost more body fat (and less lean body mass) than the people consuming the standard amount of protein. Belong Cho, M.D., Ph.D., is a member of Herbalife's Nutrition Advisory Board. The Herbalife's Nutrition Advisory Board is made up of doctors and researchers around the world in the fields of nutrition and health who educate and train Herbalife independent distributors on the principles of nutrition, physical activity and healthy lifestyle.
