Losing weight quickly is a task that is pursued by millions of people. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a system, a pill, a real quick fix where the pounds would just fall off in a day or so? Wow, I think we could turn that product into some cash, huh? We want that quick fix, but the reality is that it takes time and patience to get our bodies to the place where we need them to be in terms of our weight and health. However, anyone who is beginning a weight loss program needs a good, healthy, energy igniting program that will give them a launch into their new health, wellness, and weight loss goals. Advocare’s 24 Day Challenge is just that program that can give you the needed boost, quick and healthy weight loss, and give you a big win and a head start toward your overall wellness goals.
The 24 Day Challenge has been used by thousands of people and has proven a reliable and healthy weight loss system. The first ten days are focused on cleansing your body of toxins and preparing your body for optimal nutrient absorption. Many report significant weight loss in these first days. The products used in this initial phase are the Herbal Cleanse, (which is a mild cleansing of your system – not a harsh cleanse where you are afraid to leave the house…:) I will, however, include the fact that the Herbal cleanse drink is the only part of the plan that people worry about because of the texture and citrus flavor of the drink being a little bland. Well, I solved that problem by mixing it in part, and sometimes totally with orange juice rather than water. That does the trick for me – no problem. And remember, this is a VERY IMPORTANT part of the program.
Also, in the first ten days you will take the OmegaPlex Omege 3 Fatty Acid supplement. These are in pill form and look like a traditional vitamin. The other product in the first ten days is everyone’s favorite, Advocare’s SPARK. This product that thousands of families, including mine, keep in their homes at all times. it’s is Advocare’s best selling product. It’s a sugar free energy drink that sharpens mental focus and brings energy to start the day or to get you through that afternoon slump. Well, does it have caffeine? Yes. About the same amount as a cup of coffee. However, coffee doesn’t contain 21 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients designed to give a healthy, balanced source of energy as does SPARK. Advocare developed a real winner with the SPARK product.
As for days 11-24 – the MAX Phase, you begin the MNS supplements, once again in pill form as a traditional vitamin would look. With MNS you have the choice of MNS MAX C, for added appetite control, MNS MAX E, which targets energy levels, and MNS MAX 3 which is an all around weight loss, energy, and wellness supplement. I normally would use and suggest the MNS MX 3 for the overall well rounded benefits.
Another product that is introduced during days 11-24 is the Advocare meal replacement shake. This is another product that I keep in my home at all times. With 24 grams of protein, 26 vitamins and minerals, and only 220 calories, it’s a great way to start a day or even as a lunch on the go.
(Here’s how I use the Advocare shake. It comes as a powder in Advocare’s great packaging. Some people try to mix it up by stirring or in a shaker, but I always use a blender. I put part ice, part water, then I usually throw in a banana, which adds a bit of calories, but obviously try healthy. Then in seconds I blend it to the consistency of a milkshake, pour it in my glass, pop my straw in it, and I’m out the door. I’m a chocolate lover and the chocolate flavor is great. I’m going to be honest and say I’ve never tried the other flavors. I’m sure they are good as well, but I keep going back to what I love…chocolate).
You also continue to use SPARK for the extra energy through these last 14 days. What is happening during this time is that you are putting the right kind of nutritional supplements into your body and getting on the path of greater wellness.
So what do we eat on the 24 day challenge? You’re eating veggies, fruit, clean carbohydrates such as rice and oatmeal, and meats such as salmon, tune, chicken, eggs, or very lean beef. Just remember, no fried foods. Click on -for the food suggestions for Days 1-10. For days 11-24, use the same procedure for – Days 11-14.
Okay, surely there is some sort of exercise involved? Well, certainly Advocare encourages exercise during this time, and you will get the best results this way, however, many people lose a lot of lbs simply through the implementation of the nutritional and weight management supplements of the 24 day challenge. If you do choose to exercise and haven’t been doing much of that lately, it’s always advisable to get clearance from your doctor as to the amount of activity that you should start with. He may want you to do simple things such as more walking, or even allow you to take part in the beginner’s portion of the new Advocare Workout Series found on page one of this website. These workouts are only 24 minutes long and a beginner would only do each exercise in 10 second increments followed by a 20 second rest….pretty good deal to get started.
To see my video review of this DVD program ad more info about the 24 Day Challenge, you can check out our YouTube video at Brian’s 24 Day Workout series comments. Also, you can check out my post about this workout series on this site at 24 Day Challenge Workout Series. Just use good judgment and common sense as to your level of increased activity during these 24 days. Turning up the level does help, but be certain it’s ok with your Doc!
“If you ran across this post through a Google search, know that I don’t give positive reviews on products that I don’t believe in. My wife, Annette, and I have used these products for several years. She is mother of five, and very busy Health Care Administrator and uses the healthy weight management benefits of many of the Advocare products 365 days a year.”
Here she is with my daughter, Karis, before one of the High School dances (you know, the ones that dad wants to attend, but is out voted!) The teenage girls in the neighborhood are found getting into my wife’s closet and borrowing her clothes. She always manages to stay trim. It was fun some time ago as she and my two daughters got her wedding dress from 24 years ago and each tried it on – almost made dad cry, but the dress fit Annette perfectly. She will not budge in her commitment to the benefits of the Advocare line of products.
Ok, the price. Honesty compels me to admit that this program is cost prohibitive to some people on a limited budget. It’s not a $29.95 infomercial special. It’s the real deal – a comprehensive strategy that Advocare put years of research into, and it is worth every penny. The $190 price seems high until you experience the results of the program one time.
The weight loss is going to vary with how closely you stick with the program, if you are careful with your diet, and if you add additional exercise, etc with the plan, even if it’s walking. It’s fairly easy to drop 10 lbs, but some drop 15-20 and even higher. That just depends on you. but you will have the right nutrition, the right fat burning mechanism, and your body will be ready to be trim. This thing is a win-win-win.
Below you will find some testimonials from some great folks about the Challenge if you would like to hear form others on the topic.
So, there you have it. A few negatives that are easily overcome, but overall, one of the finest weight loss and wellness jump starts that you are ever going to find. and it’s backed by Advocare’s great reputation and team of Doctors and Health Experts.
