10 Reasons Why Shaklee’s Cinch® is an Exceptional Value

Clinically tested† and specially formulated to help you break the diet cycle so you:

keep muscle you have

burn fat you don’t need

lose inches you don’t want

1. The Real Deal

With the Cinch Inch Loss Plan, which includes a regimen of protein-packed shakes and energy-boosting teas, you will lose inches and pounds. Period. Our medical doctors, nutritionists, and scientists have drawn on years of sports and nutrition science to develop a plan that works. In fact, those who participated in our clinical study lost an average of 16.3 pounds of fat, 4.1 inches from their waists, and 2.6 inches from their hips over a 12-week period.†

2. Easy on Your Wallet

Why pay for calorie-rich fast food that can add more inches to your waist when you could have a tasty, wholesome, protein-rich Cinch meal replacement for a fraction of the cost?

Meal** Cost Calories Protein (grams) Fat (grams)
Cinch Shake (1 serving) in 1 cup of nonfat milk $2.84 270–280 24 3

3. One Word: Leucine

Our tasty Cinch shakes, Meal-in-a-Bars, and snacks are Powered by Leucine™, a muscle-retaining amino acid that helps you keep muscle while you lose fat and inches. Why are muscles important? Muscle = Metabolism. This translates into more calories burned and fewer inches on your waist. Good? Yes! It’s the key to long-term success. In fact, those who were tested in a clinical study lost fat, pounds, and inches while retaining 100% of their lean muscle mass.†

4. Pleases Taste Buds, Satisfies Hunger

Not only do Cinch products taste great, they’re packed with protein so you feel full and not deprived. More than 90% of participants in a study reported that their energy levels were either “very good” or “great” while on the Cinch Inch Loss Plan.† The program provides loads of nutrition and includes our Cinch 3-in-1 Boost™, which helps reduce cravings by retaining normal blood-sugar levels, and two flavors of Cinch Energy Tea mix to help keep you feeling great all day long.*

5. Packed with Goodies—And Then Some

Every Cinch shake and Meal-in-a-Bar is high in protein and provides a healthy serving of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. When mixed as directed, our shakes—available in four great flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and café latte—deliver 24 grams of protein per serving while each Meal-in-a-Bar contains 20 grams. Choose from Berry Almond Crunch or Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. Many people continue to use the shakes, bars, and the tea mix after they lose weight simply because they enjoy the great taste.

6. Grab and Go

On the go? Crazy schedule? Back-to-back meetings? No more excuses. Just throw a Cinch tea stick, Meal-in-a-Bar, or one of our convenient single-serve shake packets in your briefcase, purse, or gym bag and enjoy when you want.

7. Thank Yourself Now—And in the Long Run

Team Building Tips from the Pros

If you are serious about building your Shaklee business, you should learn from the pros.

Find someone who has built a successful business and listen to what they have to say. There is no reason to reinvent the wheel when there are many people out there who have already figured out how to make it work. And usually they want you to succeed – they are not your competition, they can be your mentor.

What kinds of tips have I learned?

Commitment. To be successful you need to be committed. If you are thinking of Shaklee as a part-time enterprise to generate some additional household income, then you may not need the same level of commitment that a person wanting to make a financially rewarding change in their lives. Like most things in life, you get out of it what you put into it.

Do Something Every Day. Make it a habit to contact at least one person every day. You are going to hear a lot more “noes” than “yesses“. So you need to get them out of the way. Just think if you talked to one person each day that would be 365 people that heard your message. And if only 15% were actually interested, that could be over 50 new members in your organization. Just think what that could mean for your business!

Be Creative with the Marketing Tools. Shaklee will provide you with an incredible number of tools to use to build your business. But the most successful will “take something you like and make it your own”. So if you see a picture that inspires you, or that you think explains Shaklee products or the program, use it in your marketing materials. You can use that picture in your flyers, emails, presentations, and web sites.

Make it Personal. It is also important to make your message personal. People want to work with individuals they know and trust more than an impersonal company. Shaklee is a company built on personal relationships. Use your picture, your story, and your enthusiasm as tools to your advantage.

Make a Pledge. Anyone who has successfully made a significant change in their life knows that the best way to reach your goals is to tell others. If you want to lose weight, if you tell other people you can get their support and just as important you feel like you can continue when it gets tough knowing that others are watching. Make a pledge to reach out to a set number of people, make it happen, and tell others of your success.

Tell a Story. Some of the most powerful marketing tools are stories of success. If you know someone who changed their health – or the health of a family member – invite them to tell you their story. Then pass it along. The story can be about making a difference in your child’s life, helping a parent by giving them information on various products, or even a story about how you or someone you know made a difference in their financial well-being through Shaklee. Everyone loves a good story.

Remember that you aren’t in this business alone. Build relationships with your team and with your customers and you will be a long way in being a success.

Have fun and good luck!

I am an Independent Shaklee Distributor based in Southern California.

Shaklee is a company that is in all of the right businesses for our time:

  1. Health and Wellness


  • Living Green



  • Healthy Beauty



  • Nutrition



  • Home Based Businesses



Shaklee has been in business for over 50 years – since 1956. Their selling program of selling directly to their customers through Independent Distributors is a proven model that works. Instead of paying for wholesalers, retailer, and advertising, the profits go directly to the Distributor building their busines.

Is Shaklee a pyramid scheme?

First, Shaklee products are great to use, to live a health life and to live in a green environment. I know this because I have personally been using Shaklee products for almost 20 years now myself and can tell the difference.

Secondly, you don’t have to develop your own business in order to purchase their products. If you want to just be a consumer – and we encourage you to try out the products for yourself – you can join as a Member and receive the Member Discount of 15% on all of your purchases.

Third, if you do want to buuild a business you can choose how it will work best for you. There are many Distributors who want to earn a few extra dollars each month and know that the extra $300 or $500 or even $1,000 each month can make a difference in their lives.

Fourth, on the other hand if you want to build a large, profitable, and successful business, Shaklee gives you the products and the tools to make it happen. I know some of the top Distributors in the company and they enjoy an incredible lifestyle because of their work over the past 30 years to build their business. So I know it can happen.

Lastly, it all depends on how much work you want to do. As with most things in life, there is not such thing as a free lunch. If you work hard with Shaklee, you can earn the rewards. One story that made it clear to me was hearing from one successful Distributor that she was giving herself a $20,000 a year raise each and evrey year by building her Shaklee business. Just think of asking for that raise at your regular job!
