It is tough to be a modern woman now. Balancing career, marriage, motherhood, home life and everything in between. Starting from buying grocery regularly, cook everyday, set the table, feed the family with a smile, try to satisfy everybody and her grudges, clear the table and wash up.
In a family of 2 parents and 2 kids the average number of meals, including all kinds of snacks is 15-20 per day. In order to reduce the pressure on the housewife, a lot of processed foods, yogurts, mousses, packaged snacks, muffins, sweets, etc are bought and keep at home. Another dubious solution is to send the whole family to the nearest fast food joint instead of cooking a proper meal.
Herbalife Pudding Formula 1 is the best solution!

It can be both a meal or a snack. 5-7 Herbalife puddings can be prepared to consume during the day, drastically reducing the need to buy and prepare food, while at the same time providing the family with healthy and tasty meals.

29th September is World Heart Day! It is an important day for raising heart-health awareness!
How healthy your heart is? Since World Heart Day is fast approaching, it is high time to make changes to our lifestyle and educate people about heart disease and ways to prevent it. Supporting heart health includes a combination of exercise, a heart healthy diet and heart supplements.
First, we look at those 30% factors which affecting our heart health. Your genes, gender and descent. If you have a family history of heart disease, you are automatically on a course to develop the disease yourself. However, much of the reason that multiple generations in a family have a particular condition is that the family chooses lifestyle habits that make them more prone to a certain disease. Men have been shown to have higher incidences of heart attack than women, and they also have the heart attacks earlier in life than do women. Therefore, men must especially watch their heart health, even earlier in life, to ensure a long, healthy life. Last factor, certain nationalities have sometimes shown a predilection for certain conditions and diseases. An excellent example of this is the Japanese, who typically have lower blood pressure and chances of heart disease than Americans.
Well, there are 70% factors which are within our control, our lifestyle. Here are some easy and simple ways to do that:
Heart Health Nutrition / Supplement:
There is really no such thing as a heart healthy diet! What we’re talking about is well-balanced nutrition which is recommended for everyone. The reason we think it’s a heart healthy diet is because of the consequences associated with unhealthy eating which have a direct or indirect influence on heart health.
Take plenty of fibrous foods such as whole-grain cereals, potatoes, and bran to help you lower the risk of heart disease. Avoid fat products. Eat more of fruits and vegetables – they are a good source of fibers, vitamins and minerals. Reduce salt as much as possible in your foods to maintain your blood pressure and sugar level under control. Include fish in your meals at least twice a week. Monitor your calories intake and it is always good to know how much fat, salt and sugar the product contains. This will help you choose a diet with less calories.
Having Herbalife Formula 1 shake everyday provides well-balanced nutrients and Herbalife Heart Health Set (Omega 3 Fish Oil with EPA & DHA & NW Formula) an easy solution for taking care of your heart, nourishing your arteries at the cellular level* For more details, please check out the product info here.
Quit Smoking! Almost one in every five people die each year because of smoking. The chemicals in tobacco smoke not only damage blood cells, but also weaken the function of your heart and blood vessels. If you are a smoker, the best thing to do is to quit right away.
Alcohol contains more calories. Drinking regularly and over a long period of time, can increase your blood pressure which is the main cause of heart disease. It also weakens the heart muscle, and this can lead to heart failure.
Keep your body fit by doing regular exercise. Simple physical activities such as walking, running or swimming increase skeletal muscle strength. This also helps reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels to prevent heart disease. Make it a habit and spare at least 30 minutes of your day.
Obesity is the global epidemic now. Nearly 49% of all Malaysian are overweight. This leads to developing health problems such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and more. Hence it is a must to maintain a healthy weight. You should check your body composition (body weight, body fats%, visceral fats, muscle mass) at least once a year. If you are overweight, take precautionary measures like eating fewer calories than your body needs and doing aerobic exercise for 30 minutes daily.
All of these things-heredity, gender, lifestyle, diet, supplementation- affect your chances of developing heart disease. In order to prevent cardiovascular disease and improve your heart health, it is important to take charge, to do research and know what your body needs for optimum health, and then do act upon that knowledge to better your heart health today.

Most doctors will tell you that you should gain anywhere between 11-16kg through out your pregnancy. You should aim to gain about 1-3kg during your first trimester, although more often than not most women find that they lose weight their first trimester. The culprit to this is morning sickness. Some women suffer from such a severe case of morning sickness they can not keep anything down. Chances are your doctor will not be too concerned if you lose a few kg that first trimester as long as you gain steady throughout the next two trimesters.
Your second trimester is where you will probably put on most of your weight. Most women put on about 0.5kg a week, so roughly four or 2.5kgs a month which brings their second trimester weight gain to about 5-7kgs. Some women put on more while others put on less. Do not be surprised if you put on a lot of weight one month and not so much your next.
For the 7th and 8th month you will should probably continue about 0.5kg each week or so. Look to gain between 3-4kgs those months. Most women find that their weight gain slows down in the 9th month. You might find your weight gain coming to a end as your due date draws nearer. This can be a sign that labor is on the horizon. Or, you may find that your weight gain continues especially if you are retaining a lot of water.
So where does all this weight go? It doesn’t really make sense that you should gain between 11-16kg if your baby is only going to weigh around 3kgs. Let’s break down where the extra weight goes.
First, you have your baby. A average baby weights about 3.5kgs. Some can weigh more and some weigh less. That amniotic fluid that your baby has been swimming in for the past nine months weighs about 1kg. Figure in about 0.7kg for your breast enlargement and 0.5kg for your placenta. Your uterus, which started off about the size of a golf ball has grown to weigh about 1.6kg. Your body should be producing about 4kgs of extra blood by the end of your pregnancy and about 3kgs of fat. Let’s not forget the extra fluid of about 1-1.5kgs that your body might be holding on to. All this equals to the grand total of about 11-16kgs.
Now keep in mind this is just a estimate and not a guarantee of how your weight will fall. There are women who wind up having a 4.5kgs baby and others who have a 2.3kgs baby. The key is to maintain a healthy weight gain throughout your pregnancy. Your body needs extra calories and it is best for you and your baby if those extra calories come from food that has a lot of nutritional value such as fruits, vegetables or protein. Staying away from junk for will help you curb your weight gain.
When it comes to taking the weight off, do not be surprise if your body hangs on to it especially those first days after delivery. Once you are home keep this in mind that it took nine months to gain that weight so gives yourself at least a good nine months to take it off.
