Herbalife 2nd-Quarter Net Up 20% on Broad-Based Sales Growth


Herbalife Ltd.'s (HLF) second-quarter profit rose 20% as the nutrition company saw broad-based growth in sales volume.

The company also raised its full-year earnings outlook, now seeing a profit of $3.88 to $3.98 a share on year-over-year revenue growth of 15% to 17%. It had previously targeted per-share earnings of $3.58 to $3.74 a share on revenue growth of 12.5% to 14.5%. 

Shares were up 5.7% in after-hours trading to $54.65. Through the close, the stock was down 26% in the past three months. 

Herbalife sells a range of products, including weight-loss shakes and fitness supplements, operating through a wide global network of independent distributors. In May, the company said it would buy back the rest of the $427.9 million remaining in a stock repurchase plan in an effort to counter a share sell-off started when hedge-fund manager David Einhorn dropped in on Herbalife's first-quarter earnings conference call, and questioned the company's financial reporting. 

Mr. Einhorn, of Greenlight Capital Inc., is known for short selling, or betting on a decline in shares of companies whose business practices he questions. 

On Monday, the company added another $1 billion to its stock buyback plan, available over the next five years. 

In the latest quarter, Herbalife reported a profit of $133.4 million, or $1.10 a share, up from $111.2 million, or 88 cents a share, a year earlier. 

Sales jumped 17% to $1.03 billion, with growth across all but one of the regions in which it operates, and particular strength in the Asia Pacific region, which is now its biggest sales generator.
The company had projected earnings between 91 cents and 95 cents a share, on sales growth of 9.5% to 11.5%. 

Gross margin narrowed slightly to 80.3% from 80.6%. 

For the current quarter, the company sees earnings of 97 cents to $1.01 a share on sales growth of 10% to 12%. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had recently predicted earnings of 99 cents on revenue growth of roughly 10%.

Autolysis : Rejuvenating the Body Cells

Assalamualaikum readers! Have you had your shake for sahur today? Alhamdulillah. It's the 10th day of Ramadhan. We'll be entering the second 10 of Ramadhan. Yesterday during an event at Pullman Putrajaya, I learnt something new. It's called autolysis. Do you know what is it? If you know alhamdulillah, if not, I'm gonna share some with you here. 

Short and sharp. Autolysis is process to rejuvenate our body cells. In other the process will reformat our body to the ideal condition. The speaker yesterday said, the first 10 days 10% of our body cells will be renewed. The next 10 days, 66% of our body cells will be renewed. The final 10 days, 100% of our body cells will be renewed. That's one of the advantages of why fasting is 30 days. Amazing isn't it? That's all from me for this post.

Neptune Krill – The Omega-3 Plus Added Benefits


Omega-3 fats are important for cardiovascular, joint, and mental health. The most common source of Omega-3 fats is fish body oils. Neptune Krill Oil is a new source of Omega-3 that offers some benefits that fish oil does not.

Phospholipids – Neptune Krill Oil is rich in phospholipids. Found in all life forms, phospholipids are the prime building blocks of life. The most pivotal function of phospholipids for life is in maintaining the integrity of cell membrane systems. Dietary phospholipid intake on the part of most people in the West has declined, mainly due to increased food refining and processing. Phospholipids are not present in fish oil.

Antioxidant value – Neptune Krill Oil has an antioxidant capacity 47 times greater than fish oil.

Cholesterol – Neptune Krill Oil can help maintain healthy LDL and HDL cholesterol levels within the normal range. Claims that fish oil can’t make.

Liver Health – The liver is the workhorse organ of the body, and it depends heavily on the membrane phospholipids to optimally process newly absorbed nutrients, and detoxify thousands of potentially toxic incoming chemicals.

Why You No Worry??

Hey you, why you no worry??  You should you know. The statistics looks scary isn't it? Example now, if I am walking around town, 8 or 9 out of 10 are fat or big in size. Fat is one case, fat and unhealthy, that's the worse. Why is it have to be like this? Can't we all live in a healthy lifestyle? Yes, we can. It is not wrong to be fat, but it's wrong for not taking care of our body carefully and to keep it fit and in shape. Latest I heard from my mom's customer, she's a nurse at a local hospital. She said that youngest diabetes patient is only 5 years old! Isn't it worry enough? How is it possible? Yes, it's possible. We cannot blame our parents, but we can blame our eating pattern. 

Most of us didn't take eating seriously. We just eat and eat and eat until we didn't even realize that we've grown bigger in size and unhealthy. Yes, it would not take 1 or 2 days or a month or two to see the results. The results will be shown in the next 5 to 10 years. Example like me last time. I was having a very bad lifestyle even though I'm not smoking or drinking those alcohol, because I'm a Muslim. Everyday my meal would be big portion of rice, one serving of chicken or meat and one serving of vegetable. Plus my favorite drink, iced Milo, yes, very delicious because of the milk especially. That's my meal every day for lunch sometimes dinner. Breakfast is like optional to me. My sleep pattern was bad, I slept at 3 or 4, wake up at 7 or 8. Means what? Not enough sleep. Because of the games and movies, you know, staying in college, have many free time, download latest movies and watched it. It's free though. It's takes me just one year to gain 10kg. Amazing isn't it? That was me before. It's all history now. 

It all changed since my mother keep pushing me to take the shake, well, I rejected it for the first one year because I'm not into all those kinds of sort of "supplements". That time my ignorance of health was as hard as rock. At last I surrendered because that time I was looking so sick. I just take the shake for two weeks, fully monitored by my mother, the results was amazing even though I was not so excited back then at first. But at least I can wear my jeans which I sized 34", it's good enough. Before it was 36". Of course I can wear smallest was M size that time, originally I wore XXL or XL like that. My health and energy became better, alhamdulillah.

My weight didn't changed much but my shape does. How did I notice it? When I went back to the college, my friend, Jemin, said to me that I looked slimmer. My head think this, "Is it??" It's a good sign, isn't it. So, from there onwards, I never stop taking my shake every day. Until now, entering my 4th years consuming the best food, daily balanced nutrition, Herbalife. Thank you Allah, Thank you Herbalife. Thank you my coach who is my mother and all my family for you support.And this is me, tadaaa...















It's all begin with a DECISION. It's all up to you and yourself. The key point here is that, please do take care of what you are eating. Eat healthy, live healthy. Make sure to drink enough water daily to keep your body hydrated. That's all for now. Thanks for reading. :)

**Herbalife is food and it does not claim to cure any sickness or diseases. It's only logic if we give our body good food, our body will react and repair itself.

Fasting with Herbalife nutrition part 2

Ramadhan is not an excuse to stop our weight loss and just simply eat whatever we like. In fact, this is the best month to lose more because we have not been eating all day long and most definitely the best way to keep up our energy levels and hunger levels under control so that we don’t end up eating all the wrong kind of foods just before you go to bed. Sticking to the Herbalife weight loss programme is actually the most healthy option that we could choose, not only will it keep us on track to lose weight but because it’s high in protein it will also keep us feeling fuller for longer enabling us to make healthier food choices all round. Remember protein keeps us feeling fuller for longer so focus on the protein, eat fat and it turns to fat so avoid that, drink plenty of fluids to keep you hydrated and use your vitamins to keep you healthy. When we’re starving hungry we make impulse food choices and 99% of the time these choices are the wrong ones.

Sleep and Rest

Possibly the most important factor in well-being is getting enough sleep and rest. In order to be physically fit and to feel your best, sleep and rest must be considered just as important as eating fresh foods and exercising regularly. Do you know the difference between sleep and rest? Sleep is the biologically necessary loss of consciousness accompanied by deep breathing as well as a slowed heart rate and metabolism. Rest is simply taking ten or twenty minutes to stop working, stop stressing, and consciously slow down and relax. Rest is the opposite of activity, the balancing element to a hyperactive lifestyle.  Sleep and rest are equally important for good health.

So, remember to get enough sleep.
