Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important for overall health. A key element in this mission is establishing patterns that produce a healthy body weight. In America, obesity rates are increasing and Americans are slowly becoming more concerned with nutrition. Watching what you eat can help your body be more healthy. During day-to-day activities, many Americans find themselves extremely busy. Is becoming increasingly common for Americans to seek out quick alternatives in regards to food. This pattern leads to the consumption of more fast food in a typical American diet. Most fast food items tend to be packed with more calories than food prepared at home. Another problem is the fact that consumers lack a clear idea of what exactly is in their food. This leads to a lack of information on exactly how many calories, fat, or cholesterol they are consuming.
An article provided on Herbalife site talks about a new solution that may be available to Americans looking to watch what they eat. As of May 2018 chain restaurants across America will be required to have calorie counts listed on the menu. By having calorie counts readily accessible to their customer’s consumers can make better choices and what they choose to eat. Unfortunately, these calorie counts are only estimated as variation is typical in these environments. However, they are significantly better than the guessing game consumers have had to play in the past. The website on Herbalife advises that people watching what they eat should do everything they can together’s much information as possible. They also believe that people should use as much common sense as possible when it comes to nutrition.
Herbalife was founded by Mark Hughes. The company originated in 1980 and has grown exponentially since then. Herbal life currently estimates that they employ about 8000 people across the world and they boast net sales of $4.488 billion as of 2016. The company also has 3.2 million independent distributors. Herbalife is organized in a direct selling multilevel marketing model. Mark Hughes began the company in February 1980 by selling weight management products from the trunk of his car. His earliest product was a protein shake. The establishment of herbal life was inspired by the early death of Mark Hughes’s mother. He claims that her unhealthy approach to weight management inspired him. He also believes that she developed an eating disorder in order to address weight loss.
