Starting January 1st I am doing another Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  And I’m inviting YOU to join me.

My husband did the challenge first two years ago.  I was skeptical and thought I would just continue to eat healthy and work out along side him.  When I had only lost 3 pounds in 24 days and he lost 15 and looked like this…I knew I had to try it.  Since that first challenge two years ago he has lost a total of 45 pounds and has kept it off!

I have great results as well.   During my last challenge I lost 12 pounds, 5% body fat, 5 inches, and a pant size!  And felt truly amazing!

My Mom lost 25 pounds during the course of the challenge.  She has completely changed her lifestyle, continued with the products, and has lost a total of 60 pounds.  So proud of her.

My friend, Lauren, also tried the Challenge after reading about how much I loved it.  She had some pretty incredible results herself.  And after continuing the products for a year and a half you should see her now.  She looks incredible!

i am on day 13 of the advocare 24 day challenge.  so far i have gone down a size in jeans (finally back in my skinny jeans!), lost 2 inches in my hips, an inch around my belly, and a couple of pounds as well.  a lot of friends have asked what the diet looks like on the advocare challenge.  it’s not some gimmick-y diet.  it’s truthfully clean eating.  here is an advocare sample menu:

 

breakfast:  chocolate meal replacement shake (i LOVE these.  i have a major sweet tooth and i look forward to one every morning).  on days that i don’t have a meal replacement shake i’ll have egg whites with spinach and maybe some fruit.

mid-morning snack:  banana with a tablespoon of natural almond butter.

lunch:  salad topped with chicken.  i vary it up by adding different fruits or vegetables.

afternoon snack:  apple and natural almonds.

dinner:  a grilled chicken breast with lightly steamed vegetables and brown rice.  another favorite has been turkey chili or i make oven chicken fajitas and serve it over brown rice and black beans.  i like doubling servings for dinner so i can have leftovers for lunch.  i’m not one who likes to eat salad for lunch every day. :)

when you sign up for the challenge you’ll receive a sample menu as well as a list of food items allowed and not allowed.  like i said before i was eating similarly to this for a little over a month in conjunction with working out 6 days a week with little to no results.  the advocare supplements have really helped me kick it up a notch and see some exciting results.

just wanted to do an official post with some FAQ information so that i can refer to it when people ask me about it.

also, i chose the MNS3 packets (for weightloss) as well as the chocolate shake:

in the beginning of july my husband and i got motivated to get healthy.  we were eating way too much fast food and takeout, drinking alcohol, and hadn’t really exercised in a year.  court decided he was going to do the advocare 24-day cleanse after a friend of ours had done it.  i opted out because quite frankly i was VERY addicted to my diet dr pepper (we’re talking 4-6 sodas a day) which obviously isn’t on the advocare cleanse.  i planned to workout and eat healthy along side him.  court’s 1st day was july 9th – he began working out 7 days a week during the cleanse phase, eating lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and drinking a gallon of water per day in addition to taking the advocare products.  when the challenge was over he had lost 15 pounds and made some pretty dramatic changes to his body.  i have to say i was very impressed – in our eight years together i had never seen him workout for more than a period of a month and his healthy eating had never lasted more than a week.  his amazing advocare before and after:
