My AdvoCare Challenge Day 24 Update!

I am so proud of myself!  I just completed my 24 Day Challenge with AdvoCare. This is my follow up and thoughts post.

I've lost 14.5 pounds!! But, more than the weight loss, I feel GREAT!! I have extra energy.  I am more AWAKE during the day.

The AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge is designed to either kick start your diet or to help you if you are experiencing a plateau.

So, what's in the Challenge Pack?

Each 24-Day Challenge includes:
  • One box of Herbal Cleanse-Citrus
  • One bottle of OmegaPlex®
  • One box of AdvoCare Spark®-Mandarin Orange
  • One box of AdvoCare Spark®-Fruit Punch
  • Your choice of one box of Meal Replacement Shakes - Chocolate Mocha, Chocolate, Vanilla, Berry or Non-Dairy Dark Chocolate
  • Your choice of one box of MNS® Max 3, C, or E
The cost is $190.25  Worth every single penny!!

Days 1-10 Cleanse Phase
The first ten days are about cleansing your body of toxins and preparing for optimal nutrient absorption, and you may enjoy weight loss as well!*
  • Herbal Cleanse-Citrus: helps to cleanse and detoxify your body.*
  • OmegaPlex®: essential fatty acids for increased overall wellness.*
  • AdvoCare Spark®: nutritionally-advanced energy*
The Cleanse Phase The Herbal Cleanse is an orange drink. It's on the thick side, but guzzle it and your done.  OmegaPlex is a couple of easy to swallow pills.  Then there is Spark. Ohhh how I love my Spark!! LOVE this stuff.  Spark starts my day off with such energy!!  Seriously, as I drink my 8 ounce Spark drink I can literally feel my eyes open and the yawns and butt dragging are gone before I finish my drink. Spark is liquid GOLD!! (Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win your own box of Spark!!) Bonus it tastes GREAT!!!  I just ordered a box of Watermelon flavor. Doesn't that sound delicious?? I'll let ya know.  The orange flavor and the punch are 2 thumbs way up!

I tried to eat better, more fresh veggies, less fast food.  More water. Okay more water is a lie. I didn't drink water before.  NOW?!  Now I drink a gallon of water a day.  I carry my huge jug with me everywhere.  If I don't drink my water I wake up with a headache!  WHO knew my body would like this water stuff??

The Herbal Cleanse is not harsh. I wasn't tied to the bathroom. I didn't have to learn where every bathroom was between home and San Diego. This was a gentle but very effective cleanse.

Days 11-24 Max Phase
Give your body the best tools you need to achieve your next weight management goal during days 11-24!*
  • Metabolic Nutrition System (MNS®): Your choice of Max C+ (appetite control), Max E+ (energy), or Max 3 - for weight management, appetite control and overall wellness.*
  • Meal Replacement Shake - your choice of chocolate mocha, chocolate, vanilla, berry or non-dairy dark chocolate: Complete nutrition in a great-tasting shake!
  • AdvoCare Spark®: nutritionally advanced energy*
Day's 11 through 24 were also easy. The Meal Replacement Shakes are delicious. Like drinking a really creamy glass of chocolate milk. Filling! Whenever I feel the need to pig out I have a shake and I'm back in control. The Metabolic Nutrition System comes in a strip.  Each strip is packets of supplements. Each packet is marked with the time of day to take the supplements. Making it super easy to follow.

None of the supplements made me jumpy or made my heart race. This entire system really works together for optimal success.

ActoTherm: Based on an exclusive blend of botanicals including cinnamon, gotu kola, ginger and peppermint, this time-honored AdvoCare original product has been reformulated. This new version features a sustained-release to aid in preventing a spike and drop-off of energy throughout the day.*

BioTherm: A unique weight-management aid developed by AdvoCare that combines oolong tea, effective botanicals and B vitamin, biotin, to support weight control.* BioTherm helps your body convert fat into energy.* Biotin is also used by the body to facilitate the conversion of food to energy. It acts as a coenzyme in several metabolic reactions that aid in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and the conversion of amino acids from protein into energy.*

CorePlex®: An optimal formulation of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and trace elements needed by the body to promote and sustain long-term health and well being.* By combining this synergistic blend of 36 nutrients, CorePlex supports healthy bone structure and growth as well as provides optimum nutritional support for healthy muscle, connective tissue and skin.*

OmegaPlex®: A safe, convenient and easy way to get the omega-3 fatty acids that may be missing in your diet. OmegaPlex contains a concentrate of at least 500mg long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, 300mg EPA and 200mg DHA. Omega-3 fatty acids such as those present in OmegaPlex help support cardiovascular health in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.*

ProBiotic Restore™ ULTRA: Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that confer health benefits on the host. Our bodies must maintain a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria and harmful bacteria to work at its best. The multi-strain probiotic complex in ProBiotic Restore ULTRA provides six high potency strains - three species of Lactobacillus and three species of Bifidobacterium. Two billion colony forming units (CFU) ensure full coverage of both the small and large intestines. ProBiotic Restore ULTRA helps replenish normal beneficial intestinal microflora to support healthy immune and intestinal function, while aiding good digestion and enhancing weight management programs.*

Calcium Plus:An incredibly effective way to ensure you receive enough calcium to keep bones and teeth strong and healthy.* Calcium Plus delivers two types of highly absorbable calcium, combined with other minerals, vitamins and botanicals.
Amplify A.T.: A revolutionary formula that combines two potent and unique natural ingredients that produce advanced nutritional benefits.* These two super-nutrients, astaxanthin and tocotrienols, are the real secret behind the power of Amplify A.T. For anyone who wants to fight the aging process, Amplify A.T. can help by strengthening the immune system, maintaining healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range, and providing excellent nutrition for joint health and mobility.
