Advocare 24 Day Challenge Results

Hey everyone! It is time to share my advocare success. 

Before sharing my success I want to share about what exactly the 24DC is. 

The first ten days are called the Cleanse Phase. Cleanse phase supplements include: 

prodHerbalCleanse

Herbal Cleanse is designed to help eliminate waste and prepare your body for optimal nutrient absorption.* You may enjoy weight loss as well!*

There are three components of the Herbal Cleanse: Fiber Drink – which is mixed with 8 oz. of water (And is COMPLETELY disgusting!!!! But you only have to drink it 6 times), Herbal Cleanse caplets and ProBiotic Restore™ Ultra Capsules. AdvoCare recommends using Herbal Cleanse every 90 days.

prodOmega

The second product you will use in the Cleanse Phase is OmegaPlex®, which is a high-quality blend of essential Omega-3 fatty acids for overall wellness.* Omega-3 fatty acids are essential components of heart, nerve, muscle, skin, bone and immune health. As with all of the AdvoCare products, OmegaPlex® meets high standards for safety and efficacy so you can be sure you are getting some of the purest Omega-3 fatty acids on the market.*

prodSpark

AdvoCare Spark® Energy Drink Mix is a fantastic source of energy, nutrition and mental focus.* It is sugar free and formulated with 21 vitamins, minerals and nutrients that work synergistically to give long-lasting energy.* Simply mix Spark with 8 oz. of water and enjoy!

I also took an optional supplement:

prodCatalyst

Catalyst works to feed muscle, not fat, leaving our body more toned and better defined.* Catalyst contains branched-chain amino acids, which help support endurance and strength in conjunction with exercise.

Catalyst can also aid in preserving muscle and energy levels during times of calorie restriction, and can help support post-exercise muscle repair and recovery. 

I have also heard Catalyst nicknames Liposuction in a bottle 🙂

For the Max Phase (Day 11-24) I took the following supplements:

prodMNS

MNS Max 3, provides you with a foundational level of appetite control and energy.

prodMRS

Every morning for breakfast during the max phase I mixed 8 oz water, a meal replacement packet and 1 frozen banana. So delicious! 

During the max phase I also drank Spark and took the Catalyst Supplements. 

Now for the nutrition! A nice thing during the challenge the nutrition stayed the same and it was super simple. 

Breakfast: 1 serving protein, 1 serving complex carb and 1 serving fruit. 

Snack: 1/2 serving protein, fruit, veg or complex carb

Lunch: 1 serving protein, 1 serving vegetable and 1 serving complex carb.

Snack: 1/2 serving protein, fruit, veg or complex carb

Dinner: 1 serving protein, 1 serving vegetable and 1 serving complex carb (optional).

Snack: 1/2 serving protein, fruit, veg or complex carb

Advocare 24 DC Pros:

Energy: I felt a lot of energy during the 24DC!! One reason for all the energy was the clean eating. Second because of the Max Phase!!

Digestion: I stomach and digestive system definitely enjoyed all the clean eating. 1 day off of the challenge and I ate not clean food and my tummy was hurting! 

Money: I realize that the 24 Day Challenge bundle is a bit pricey but it was totally worth it and I saved a lot on not eating out. Scott and I are very bad about eating out so this challenge has helped me with that. Also if you are a coffee drinker or happy hour goer during the challenge you are encouraged not to drink coffee or alcohol so you save a little there to. 

Advocare 24 DC Cons:

Very Hard: I’m not going to lie it is extremely hard!!! Talk about mega chocolate craving!! You always crave something the most when you aren’t supposed to have it right?! You definitely have to plan in order to be 100% successful. 

Money (again): The 24 Day Challenge Bundle is not cheap but I will admit it was 100% worth every penny…. even those nasty fiber drinks 🙂

Pop Craving: I’m so used to having at least one pop a day so it was very hard not to have any. I honestly think I drink pop for the carbonation so that is what I missed. It is just so refreshing. The Spark drinks gave me tons of energy so I wasn’t missing caffeine. The Spark drinks even kept me up while I was working overnights and doubling!!

Now for the good part!!

The Results!!!

I don’t feel comfortable sharing any photos, but I will tell you that I lost 5.5 lbs and a total of 9 inches. 4.5 of those inches were from my hips!! I know that if I would have 100% stuck to the eating I would have lost a lot more but like I said it’s hard and oops happen 🙂 Starting a new job with new hours didn’t help!

I love the advocare products so much that I decided to become a distributor. You can visit my website and order products. I’m also planning on doing another 24 Day Challenge starting May 1st and I’d love to have a group to start with!! More info to come on the May challenge!

I’m so happy to have jump started my weight loss journey and I can’t wait to continue. Since November 2013 I have lost a total of 15 lbs! I still have a lot more that I want to lose but it is a start 🙂
