    Im in weight loss challenge and been changed further what I eat.

    I am trying to understand what they low glycmic(sp) foods.

    I think it has to due with not making my blood sugar spike.

    But over all how does it really affect me and good or bad.

    The only thing I know about Herbalife products is they have been banned by Agencia de Seguridad Alimentaria and Agencia Espannola del Medicamento (similar to FDA here in Spain), because they've found many of them are the cause of hepatotoxicity in lots of people who have used them.

    Actually I know than the EMEA (EU drug agency) is studying to ban them Europe-wide.

    I hope it would be helpful...

    Take care icon_biggrin.gif

    Why not get an explanation from the horses mouth? This reference also gives a large database of foods.

    I am not sure what you are asking for with regard to herbalife, but investing in your own ability to cook and plan meals will be immensely helpful for long term health.

    I've taken time to research this for the poster.

    Here's an explanation to your question from Wikipedia.
