Has anyone used Herbalife instead of Optifast

My surgeon's preference is optifast, but I was wondering if anyone has used Herbalife shakes instead.  I have had those before and they are not too bad.

I used Tony Ferguson for my pre and post-op shakes and soups. There is a much better variety of flavours and they taste quite good. That being said I have recently tried the chocolate optifast and they are quite good. Cheers Leisa

I've never tried the Herbalife shakes so I'm not sure on them. I did try the Tony Ferguson shakes  and though they tasted nice they made my blood sugar levels go crazy! If you have a dietician maybe you could ask them about the Herbalife or even your doctor maybe.  I  ended up doing the opti  as I didn't think there was anything else out there that I could use.

Protein taste vary but I hated Optifast.  Recently I bought some Herbalife Cream Chicken Soup which is pretty tasty.  If it fits into your nutritional plan I say go for it!! Ms Shell
