What I'm not keen on are the lies they tell to sell it. Today I met my local dealer. We had a good discussion (it was more argumentum ad nauseam) but it made me chuckle. I won't spend ages deconstructing why herbalife isn't the "healthy" option it's made out to be...most of you are clever enough to check the ingredients and understand that it isn't a substitute for food.
Most of the discussion ended up being proof by assertion, Bob (didn't actually find out his real name so I made one up for him)
Me: Could I not do that without herbalife?
Bob: No, herbalife is safer than eating low calorie
Me: I'm pretty sure herbalife is low calorie
Bob: No, it's about creating a calorie deficit
