Herbalife Study Sheds Light on Weight Loss Goals

Herbalife recently sponsored a nationwide survey of 1,000 adults that revealed men and women differ not only in their strategies, but also in what motivates them to shed excess flab.

The survey shows that the main factor driving weight loss efforts for women is appearance—nearly 40 percent were motivated to lose because “I don’t like the way I look.” Looks matter to men, too, but feeling out of shape also ranked high—“not feeling healthy” was the top reason that drove 27 percent of the guys to take action.

Even though the prevalence rates of overweight are about the same in men and women, the survey showed that women get dissatisfied with their weight much earlier in the game than men do. A gain of 5 pounds or less was enough to motivate nearly 18 percent of women to step up their shape-up efforts, while nearly the same percentage of men said it would take a gain of more than 20 pounds or more before getting serious. The tipping point for the majority of both sexes is 10 pounds.

Herbalife is a global network marketing company that sells weight-management, nutritional and personal-care products intended to support a healthy lifestyle. Herbalife products are sold in 73 countries through a network of more than 2.1 million independent distributors.

AdvoCare Provides Founding Grant for College Football Assistance Fund

AdvoCare provided the founding grant to help establish the College Football Assistance Fund (CFAF). CFAF is dedicated to the support of football players who have sustained serious injuries through college football. More than 20,000 college football injuries occur each year. The average medical cost for the most common injury—knee injury—is more than $10,000. The costs associated with neck and spinal cord injuries are dramatically more.

The organization was established in 2010 by a group of collegiate coaches and athletic administrators concerned about the limited resources available to injured football players. Assistance will be provided to aid in medical costs for these athletes.

AdvoCare International LP is a premier health and wellness company based in Carrollton, Texas, that offers world-class energy drinks and nutritional and skincare products along with a rewarding business opportunity.
