Cha-Cha-Change!


AC_logoblue-pms2748

Over the next few weeks I will be participating in an Advocare 24 day Cleanse/Challenge . It is just time for a change. Last Fall I gained 40lbs in a very short amount of time. Since I have been able to loose about 20-25 (depends on the day) of it, but I still want to lose that last 15!

I am super excited to chronicle my time doing the challenge- the good, the bad and the ugly!! I promise I will not try to hardcore promote these products- but it is something I believe in 100%! I believe in the products so much that I decided to become a distributor as well!

I have never been someone to struggle with weight. I have always been able to eat pretty much whatever I want and stay between 120-130 which has been a good place for me. However, after 2 kids my body composition has just changed!

I have heard of these fad “diets” before and I have always been super suspicious. No sugar? No processed food? NO WAY! But now I realize I really need a change. I am sleepy ALL THE TIME. I am a chronic Pepsi drinker. I eat a ton of processed food.

This is what made me start looking deeper into the 24 Day Challenge by Advocare. I have had friends who use/sell Advocare for years but I never truly looked into it. After doing my research and praying about it, I decided this was the plan for me!

It is really about a lifestyle change! The 24 Day Challenge is the perfect jump start to this!

The 24 Day Challenge is broken up into 2 Phases: The Cleanse Phase and the Max Phase.

AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge: 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

AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge: 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+ for maximum appetite control,
Max E+ for maximum energy, or
Max 3 for appetite control and overall wellness.*
  • Meal Replacement Shake – Complete nutrition in a great-tasting shake!
  • AdvoCare Spark: nutritionally advanced energy

 

Each AdvoCare Products 24-Day Challenge includes:

  • One box of Meal Replacement Shakes
  • One box of Herbal Cleanse
  • One bottle of OmegaPlex
  • One box of AdvoCare Spark – Choose Flavor
  • One box of AdvoCare Spark – Choose Flavor
  • Your choice of one box of MNS Max 3, C, or E 
In addition to using the Advocare Products I will also be adhering to these guidelines. I am a little nervous about putting these restrictions on myself, but I know this is the start of a great, healthier lifestyle!
