Question: Why is Herbalife so expensive?

Answer: Herbalife isn’t expensive, people have expensive priorities and they make expensive decisions that most often have very little real value.

In a nutshell, I am saying that Herbalife is not expensive, however due to certain choices, some people think they can’t afford it. Let me tell you 2 real life stories which highlight my sentiments.


Case Study 1  I have two friends *Vanessa and *Bob. They have 20 kg (44 lbs) and 30 kg (66 lbs ) respectively to lose. They approached me about Herbalife and responded that Herbalife was too expensive. A few weeks later they went on a luxury cruise and on returning traveled across state to visit their grandchildren. This is a classic example of expensive priorities and expensive decisions. While I am sure that they had a great time today, those memories are a thing of the past and they are more overweight. They placed the price of pleasure over the cost of obesity.

That’s a very common decision which we all make at some point or another; choosing short term pleasure over long term good health.

Case Study 2  *Reginald and *Susan. Both these people are overweight and are quite critical of how other people look and how overweight other people are. I was perplexed to say the least when *Reginald informed me that he “could not justify the cost of Herbalife”. Let me briefly give you their story:  This couple live in a rather affluent area in my country and have a mortgage which costs them R25 000 per month ($3000). They have a lovely home, and yet spend very little time at home for recreational purposes. They lead hectic social lives and spend most of the time away from the home on weekends *Reginald and *Susan both work at home and in spite of the fact that neither of them do much work related traveling, they have two automobiles. They dine out out 3-4 times a week together for lunch and visit various game farms 4-6 times a year in addition to their regular month-long year-end vacation. They also have several expensive gadgets and other items gathering dust in storage. Sadly, Susan’s health has taken a nose-dive as she was diagnosed as pre-diabetic with heart conditions and several other weight related conditions for which she is taking medication that does more harm than good. They have a live in domestic whom they pay about R2000 ($280) per month excluding board and lodging. . This same domestic makes them omelets filled with salmon, cheese and other expensive ingredients for breakfast. They do their grocery shopping at the most expensive retail outlet in the country and buy all sorts of exotic and expensive foods which often get discarded due to expiring. In five minutes, I would be able to show *Reginald and *Simone just how they could justify the price of Herbalife, however the truth of the matter is that they have far too expensive priorities and they make expensive lifestyle choices.

As per the dictionary, expensive means high priced or costly

I am going to challenge you to question this definition though. In my humble opinion, anything that offers a like amount of value cannot be expensive.

More than 80 million people have achieved incredible results on Herbalife. I am sure that they will tell you that Herbalife is not expensive.

It would be interesting to know how many of these people have avoided having to undergo expensive medical procedures due to taking Herbalife.

  • How expensive is a coronary artery bypass procedure?
  • How expensive is it when a family loses a breadwinner due an obesity related death?

Robert Kiyosaki always says “Don’t say that something is expensive, rather ask, what can I do to afford this”

I think Robert sums it up nicely with this statement. At the end of the day, it is all really about priorities and not the price. I trust that this post has given you some food for thought and that it will help you to reach the most sensible decision when it comes to your health and your weight.
