WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — When Antonio Lang of Greensboro discovered Herbalife products in 2010, he said he weighed nearly 400 pounds.

He decided to become a Herbalife independent distributor after he lost 100 pounds in his first year on the products.

Lang said he now weighs about 265 and maintains a healthy lifestyle. In March, he gave up his job as a distributor to become a packing line lead at Herbalife’s plant in Winston-Salem.

“This is a dream for me, to be able to manufacture the product that helped me to lose the weight,” Lang said.

Herbalife Ltd. officially opened its $130 million Winston-Salem plant Friday, providing tours to a group of about 70 people, including government officials, vendors and the media.
