    To those wishing to join HM:
    be careful, it is a money hungry business. I was on it years ago...and got suckered in. Yes, I lost my weight but 1) they did not want me going to the gym to do weights or cardio and, even if I did, I wasn't eating enough food to support this so I felt extremely faint if I even tried; 2) unfortunately the location I went to in Ottawa, the sales person failed to mentioned that I had to purchase supplements every week which do nothing for you; 3) later on, I requested to quite the supplements, they told me that I had to have them and that it is what helps with my weight loss; 4) too expensive!!!! Seriously, HM is a money hungry business. You spend too much money there and if you stop, you gain much more weight back because you have starved yourself. I've seen it happen to quite a few friends, family and coworkers.

    Once I stopped going, they would send me letters with unmarked postage and call my house from a private number to solicite me back. I'm sorry to say that many people have had problems with this company.

    I have tried many different diet places (weight watchers, herbal magic, la weight loss and south beach). Your best bet to a healthy weight loss and life style change without supplements and not hurting your bank account would be weight watchers. I didn't like LA weight loss either because it is on the same page as herbal magic. You should not have to rely on their bars whcih are a total rip off! REally expensive when you sit down and do the math!!! And with weight watchers, you are encouraged to excercise and I never felt faint doing so.

    anway, that is my input on the subject to help you save money to not be taken and to lose the weight in a healthy manner. good luck to all trying to lose weight and turn their life around to be healthy. I think that is great! icon_surprised.gif) I just had my first baby and am trying to lose the weight... I find it hard right now, but am just eating healthy and exercising and its working.

    I think what's too bad with Herbal's that it differs with every center.

    See, I made them write on the contract that I would TRY the pills...but if I decided not to take them anymore, that my contract would not be voided.

    My plan is to try and cut down the pills.
    Chromium I know is good for you (if you do the research).

    I'm very pleased at this point. I've known a lot of people who kept it off. I see a difference in me that I didn't see before, with other diets. I'm changing my life...not because of Herbal Magic...but because I wanted to do so. I'm eating things I've never eaten before... I'm trying new recipes every other day... This is my life now. This is not in the SHORT TERM... it's my life. and I like it. I feel in control.

    Hello update to my post of Feb...i am on my maintenance now and have reached my goal of 68lbs with HB...i have been off my blood pressure meds since march and i feel absolutely fantastic! its sad to read some of the stories which some people have had a bad experience with HM, ive had the outmost 100% best monitoring, encouragement etc with them, 100% better then the other weight loss program i was on twice (WW) i totally enjoy the one on one, they always take the time to listen to me and dosent matter how long it takes, paying for the supplements was never an issue for me, they are safe and healthy (from what a friends dr said after testings) i learned alot with them with food planning, cooking (the recipies are delicious) my husband has lost 20lbs just eating the meals i have been preparing while loosing my weight...just to say i WOULD recommend HM to anyone who wants to learn to eat right without counting calories or points....

    Is there anyone still reading this discussion? I joined at HM end of January. I have basically been stagnant since mid April! The supplements are too expensive for me to maintain. I am still down 30 lbs, but have a total 110 to lose!

    I don't think too many 'clients' there have that big a loss to work towards, the staff are good but all skinny little things that have never faced a challenge like this! I know I am emotional eater (pigged out tonight after being up 1.6 lbs from last week).

    I need something that is similar to the WM-2000 as I have found when I am on it I do way better, with less cravings!

    Does any around here have any suggestions? HELP!!

    I joined Herbal Magic 3 weeks ago ( down 12.4 16"!) and I live an hour and half away from the closest centre. I found this board when I googled 'Herbal Magic Recipes' . I am just looking for some people to talk to about recipes/weigh-ins and such. Just wondering if anyone is still on this board?

    Hi there - I joined HM a week ago today. Won't guess on the weight loss so far, but don't expect more than a couple of pounds a week. Bought both the recipe books and they look really good. I've made a few things out of there so far and no one around here is complaining yet. I'm not going to make separate meals for me from the rest of the family (hubby and 2 teenagers) we'll all eat the same thing. I think we ate fairly healthy in general to begin with but snacking at night and portion size seem to be my downfall.

    Went out twice over the long weekend and didn't feel like I fell off the plan too badly at all. I definately didn't stick to the choices they give for you eating out, but compared to the amount I would have eaten just a week ago, I think I did okay, not going to worry about it.

    I'm 43 and plan to lose just under 40 lbs by early January.

    Hi! Tomorrow wil be 1 week for me on the program! So far I'm loving it! I find I'm very repetative in what I'm eating, but thats ok for seems to work. Last night was the first time I made soemthing different..I made a veggie Turkey soup....and was totally starving about an hour after dinner.
    I went for a weigh in this morning, and I'm down 8.4lbs so far. I'm srue this won't keep up for long, but its a great motivator to start icon_smile.gif I'd love to keep in contact with anyone who is doing this reading thses stories, and also look forward to sharing tips or appreciate any advice. icon_smile.gif

    I started HB this week. I was on it 9 years ago and lost 40 pounds. I have put it back on over time by not changing life style habits. Want to lose the same amount of weight and stick with it this time.
    Would love to share receipes. My challenge is that I am up very early in the am (before 5:00) and have a long day. I am struggling with breakfast recipes as I don't have time to cook in the am and need something this is easy to prepare, preferably the night before.

    I lost 75 pounds on HM and kept it off for over a year on my own so far. I have never been solicited by my HB, I am friends with one of the girls who signed me up...she has her own weight issues and is back on the program herself and I know they will gladly hire people who have been through the program because you will understand a clients struggles and challenges, I was offered a job there. I have my hubby following the program from my book without any of the supplements and he has just started but is losing while going to the gym. Yes it is expensive but I tried WW and had two babies after and gained all the weight back...they all require money some are more expensive than others but some work for different people more than they work for others. If I was spending that kind of money I was going to make sure I got my money's worth. They say you can go to the gym just not intense workouts. Treadmill, bike they are all one point in it I was running 45 minutes a night on the treadmill (havent done it for a long time now though) and was losing. I had surgery in the middle of my weight loss and was still losing. My body got to a point where it said no more and I was happy there. Honestly I am not built to be 128 pounds they figure I should be with my height and age. I am quite content and feel happy and healthy where my body told me to quit.

    My HM counsellor explained to me that if you did not use a fat free dressing that you could mark that as one of your daily fats instead of using a fat-free dressing and using up your free exchange. Hope that helps.
