Sometimes I would wish I could lose weight— not only easily, but in a way that is healthy. You all know I am very anal about what I put into my body and how I am very anti all those weight loss gimmicks. So when I heard about Advocare’s 24 day challenge and the results people were getting from them I decided to do homework. I spent countless hours researching the products Advocare sells and soon came to the realization it is far from a gimmick. Real people are losing weight and becoming more healthy by incorporating Advocare products into their daily lives. So in preparation for my awesome trip to Cancun this month, I have decided to join the 24 day challenge and share my journey with you. That’s right, pictures will be shared and my honest results and opinions will be posted.
I received this awesome cleansing kit. The Herbal Cleansing kit is designed to help eliminate waste and prepare your body for optimal nutrient absorption in just 10 days. During the 10 day cleanse I took three of the products that were sent to me: the Herbal Cleanse, OmegaPlex, and Spark Energy Drink.
Herbal Cleanse is designed to help eliminate waste and prepare your body for optimal nutrient absorption. There are three components of the Herbal Cleanse: Fiber Drink – which is mixed with 8 oz. of water, Herbal Cleanse caplets and ProBiotic Restore™ Ultra Capsules. AdvoCare recommends using Herbal Cleanse every 90 days.
A high-quality blend of essential Omega-3 fatty acids for overall wellness.
Spark Energy Drink Mix:
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.*
Taking a combination of things sometimes makes me nervous as I tend to forget what I need to take when and get overwhelmed. However that wasn’t the case with Advocare. In my 10 day cleansing kit came a booklet that literally outlines what you need to take and when. It also has meal suggestions to help you eat healthier in the process. Food options to help you eat cleaner: fruits, veggies, and lean meats (chicken, tuna, turkey, etc).
After the second day of the cleanse, I noticed my energy levels were up and I honestly felt healthier. As the days went on I started to feel like my old, much younger, self. I found myself participating in all the running around chaos my kids do on a daily basis and even looked forward to running on my elliptical. Especially while drinking their Spark Energy Drink. So yummy!
I didn’t really notice a huge difference until my husband pointed something out. We hardly see each other on the weekdays due to his hectic work schedule and while at dinner the night before our flight to Cancun I noticed him looking at me. Not the normal looking a husband gives his wife while sitting across from one another, but more like a stare. After a few minutes I asked him what he was looking at and he said “your face, it looks thinner.” Then he of course quickly said “not that it was fat before.” Nice save, husband.
When I got back from Cancun, I was going through all my photos and he was right. I lost about 5 pounds on just the Advocare Cleanse alone. My jeans fit better, there was no bloating in any of the dresses I wore while on vacation and yes, my face looked thinner and healthier.
Throughout this cleanse process I realized that while I still ate healthy and exercised daily, my body was missing something— water! I never drank enough water and Advocare really helped put those much needed fluids back into my body! I have only done the 10 day cleanse but I am really looking forward to my results after the 24 day challenge!
If you are tired of those same old diets that give you no results and are really looking for a lifestyle change that eases you into it, I highly recommend Advocare’s 24 day challenge. You can start with the 10 day cleanse that is only $32. Please visit the Advocare website to learn more.
