How long does F1 and F3 lasts?

Q: Can the starter set last for 2 weeks?

- weight of F1 bottle : 550 grams
- serving size : 25 g per serving (2 heaping tablespoons)
- servings per container : 550/25 = 22
- e.g to lose weight, you need to consume shakes twice a day, which means you'll be consuming 2 servings of F1 each day. 22/2 = 11 days. 1 bottle of F1 will last for only 11 days? not necessarily.
- i have tried making my shakes using 2-3 scps F1 for each shakes and it can lasts for 14 days. how is that possible? this really depends on how u scoop. more on that below.

- weight of F1 bottle : 240 grams
- serving size : 6 g per serving (1 tablespoon)
- servings per container : 240/6 = 40
- it should lasts about 2 weeks or more depending on how many scoops u need.
- for F3 u may need 1, 2 or 3 scoops depending on ur height and bmi.
- e.g let say u only need 1 scoop for each shake, and u consume 2 shakes per day (to lose weight). 40/2 = last 20 days. 1 bottle of F3 will last only for 20 days? again.. that is not necessarily true, especially when you know how to scp..



how many bottles u need, depends on how much you scoop and how u scoop. some people don't stick to the 2 heaping tablespoons for F1. some like to put less, some like to put more. and another thing is, we don't have the same scooping method.

i won't force you to scoop a certain way, this is your decision. you may know how much bottles u need, once you've taken HL for a month. but i assure you there will always be extras left. it will be impossible for you to finish both F1 and F3 at the same time. i think this HL's strategy, to keep the consumer buying more and more products. :))

1 scoop = 1 tablespoon

back to how you scoop. there are 3 ways to scoop your F1 and F3..
- heaping scoop
- flat scoop
- 3/4 full scoop

heaping scoop: you put your spoon in the bottle and just take a big scoop out, without knocking it on the side and leveling it. it would look like a mountain-shaped.
flat scoop: you put your spoon in and level it
3/4 full scoop: you put your spoon in and knock on the side to discard excess powder.

this is how a 3/4 scoop will look like. look at the picture below.

FYI that picture is the promotional photo from Herbalife. as u can see, the contents of the spoon is not full at all. its not even a heaping scoop, and also not a flat scoop. that is what i call a 3/4 full scoop. ok?

refer above pic to see the difference btwn heaping scoop, flat scoop and 3/4 full scoop. i've drawn the difference for a better understanding. sorry for the excessive watermarks. some people like to steal my drawings. i know, my drawings can be really cute! :))


Lluvy asked several questions regarding 'scooping' too. Here's our conversation...

Lluvy: As for the scooping, i do not take heaps or flat scoops... i just scoop up and try to level it but i would say it's about 3/4 full. Boleh kan?

Adieha: isn't that the same as flat scoop? :D

yo scoop up then you level it nicely to fit 1 scoop = flat scoop

you scoop up but not too full.. meaning it's half  but there's a slight mountain-shaped on top = 3/4 full scp. or you could use the flat scoop technique, and then knock off about 1/4 of the powder out, you will get 3/4 full scoop. choose whichever is easiest for you.

it doesn't matter whether you use heap / flat / 3/4 scoop.. coz this is really up to you. if you feel like saving on your F1 + F3 powder, you can either you flat scoop or 3/4 full scoop.

Lluvy: The scooping tuh, sebenarnya is 3/4 full scoop. Nak try berjimat a little (although 1/4 balance tuh doesn't make much of a difference kan? lol).

Adieha: are you sure there's no difference? if each time you scoop your shakes 3/4 full, you will end up with 1/4 balance from each scoop, right? in every 8 scoops of F1 or F3, you will get, 1/4 x 8 = 2. you have manage to get an extra 2 flat scoops.  correct? byk dah tu boleh jimat. :D

Lluvy: Hahaha, i didn't look at it that way! But thanks for pointing it out to me! :D

Adieha: ur welcome!


do u know.. the measuring spoon that u got from ur IBP and SNP is actually a 4 in 1 spoon. u can use the spoon, to scoop ur F1, F3 and teamix. you can read about herbalife measuring spoon HERE.
