It’s that or the diet shakes, or something, its CEO says.

The head of Herbalife Ltd. vowed Tuesday that the Los Angeles nutritional products company would emerge unscathed from a Federal Trade Commission investigation stronger than ever.

"I think it's going to clear the air, and I think it's going to be a very good day for Herbalife when this is all cleared up," Herbalife Chief Executive Michael O. Johnson said in an interview with The Times, shortly after the company's annual meeting at its downtown headquarters. "I'm a great believer that the truth will prevail to the positive for us.

"If they come to us and say, 'You could have done this better,' we'll fix it. There's nothing structurally wrong with this company."
