Apart from the perennial complaint that we are all too tired and too busy to get in shape, we also fear that our bodies are just not ready to get into the kind of shape we may want. Surely you know that diet and exercise are key to making lasting changes to your body health; but sometimes a little something ‘extra’ may be needed to really get things moving in the right direction.
A boost to your metabolism and an increase in your overall energy are known to help individuals lose weight, gain muscle and get in shape. Herbalife® Total Control is a known metabolism booster made of all natural ingredients that can help you achieve the level of energy needed to regain control of your body and lifestyle.
How does Herbalife® Total Control Work?
Total Control contains extract from green tea, oolong tea and black tea. Studies have shown that green tea increases thermogenesis and thereby boosts metabolism. This is what Total Control was designed for; to raise your metabolism and your energy levels.
Total Control also contains Yerba mate, a herbal which has been shown to "lessen the tendency towards obesity induced by a high-fat diet", according to research in mice. Another vital component is ginger, which soothes the digestive system and facilitates further weight loss.
According to Herbalife’s directions, take one tablet three times per day: one with breakfast, one with lunch and one with a mid-afternoon snack.
Does Herablife® Total Control Work?
As with most supplements, the success or failure of the product depends on a number of individual factors. Some will find that while it helps them stay alert and boosts their energy levels, it does not work as effectively as a hunger suppressant. Others will find that their energy levels stay elevated throughout the night, making it difficult to sleep. Still others will experience precisely what the product is designed to do: increase metabolism and energy while controlling hunger.
Heather Nelson states that,
“Total Control is by far the best energy supplement I have found. It really does increase your energy levels without leaving you ‘jittery’ or feeling like you’re going to have a cardiac episode like other ephedra and/or caffeine pills. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is ready to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Incorporating Total Life into a healthy diet and moderate exercise routine has helped me loose an additional 10 pounds so far.”
How Much Will I Lose?
Because the primary aim of Total Control is to give you added energy, the amount of weight lost will depend on what you choose to do with the extra energy. Whatever feelings of alertness and vigor that result from taking Total Control should be channeled into more exercise or committing yourself to healthy eating and activities to maximize weight loss.
Are There Any Side Effects?
There have been reports of consumers experiencing a number of side effects upon taking Total Control, the most common being a feeling of jitteriness. Others also report that taking the pills causes their energy levels to rise so much that they cannot sleep.
A. Lee experienced both benefits and drawbacks after taking Total Control. He started by taking 2 pills. Although his energy was significantly increased, he was still able to sleep at night. However, he advises:
“Be careful with this pill. On my second day I decided to take the recommended three pills. Huge mistake. I felt off after I took the third pill. I wasn’t jittery or shaky, but I felt hot, my pulse was really fast and I was light headed. When I looked at myself in the mirror my face and neck were bright red. I had to put a cold cloth on my face and take deep breaths to calm down. Needless to say, I didn’t take any for a few days. Another problem I have with this pill is that it doesn’t suppress my appetite.”

Problems and Complaints
The most common complaint about Total Control is that it raises energy levels so much in some individuals that their sleep patterns are disrupted. It is important to remember that one tablet contains the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee.
Herbalife® Total Control contains an advanced formula free of ephedra and citrus aurantium that can help you achieve your weight loss goals by raising your metabolism and energy levels. Because it is made up of tea extracts and ginger, it may cause you to feel somewhat excited, which may in turn lead to disruptions in your daily sleep cycle. Don’t take it in the afternoon, otherwise you may not be able to sleep.
