Advocare 24 Day Challenge – Day 15

April 22, 2012

See my eyeballs?

Still vibrating.

Today marks my 5th day on the second phase of the Advocare 24 Day Challenge. (Previous Posts: Day 1, Day 6)

Two carry overs from the first part of the Challenge are the Spark Drink and OmegaPlex.

I am still amazed at my energy level after drinking a Spark. Yowza.

One new addition is the Meal Replacement Shake.

I used the replacement shake at breakfast. Mine was vanilla.

Another new addition to this part of this phase is MNS Max 3. This consists of a “strip” of supplements that you take at different times during the day. There are 4 separate pouches that you take.

It’s a lot of pills. LOL

Included in every strip pack of MNS® Max 3:

MNS Max 3 Contents:
Before Breakfast Color Packet
Calcium Plus – 2 caplets
ActoTherm SR – 1 caplet
ProBiotic Restore – 1 capsule

Before Lunch Color Packet
Calcium Plus – 2 caplets
BioTherm – 2 capsules

White Packet
CorePlex – 3 caplets

White Packet
OmegaPlex – 2 softgels
Amplify A.T. – 1 softgel

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.*

The synergistic combination of ingredients in 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®Supplementation with an optimally-formulated multivitamin can help decrease the prevalence of insufficient vitamin and mineral levels in adults, improve their micro-nutrient status to levels associated with a reduced risk for chronic diseases, and improve their quality of life and ability to perform daily tasks.* CorePlex is 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®OmegaPlex Omega-3 Fatty Acid Dietary Supplement is 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.* These critically important oils even help regulate the body’s inflammatory processes, support healthy joints and are important for the maintenance of healthy skin.*

ProBiotic Restore™ ULTRAProbiotics 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. When this balance is disturbed, it can have significant negative effects on our health including poor digestion and absorption of nutrients. Our immune systems are under daily assault from environmental factors, physical and emotional stress, inadequate rest and poor nutritional status. Additionally many individuals do not consume adequate dietary fiber, drink enough water or exercise regularly, which often results in occasional problems with elimination. Even though some individuals supplement their diets with probiotic products, all probiotics are not equal. 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: Bones and teeth need far more than calcium alone to stay strong and healthy. They need a balanced array of minerals including magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper, boron, silicon and potassium plus vitamins C, D, K and more. Calcium Plus is 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.* It provides excellent support for skin too, by vitalizing the appearance of skin, helping to reduce the formation of wrinkles and maintaining healthy skin tone.* Its ability to help reduce muscle fatigue and muscle damage while enhancing muscle recovery provides an edge to any athlete.*

Now on to the nitty-gritty. The scale has not moved since my last post. I am still hanging at 149 lbs. But…

My clothes are fitting better.

I have a ton of energy.

And that is awesome.

It takes you actually wanting to adhere to a good nutrition diet and tone up your body. Many people think that sense the program is only 24 days that it’s not practical. Think about it; it takes about 24-30 days for humans to actually pick up a habit on a consistent basis. If this became one of your daily activities 24 days out of the month, how do you think that your body will feel and look? Great of course!

I love the Spark! I used to drink a lot of soda and have completely replaced it with Spark a couple times a day.

think good abs are made in the GYM?

Think again, it all starts in the kitchen! the 24 day challenge is not a get thin quick scheme it is a all natural supplement system that helps gear your body up to receive the good and get rid of the bad and toxic!

Try to measure your inches lost rather than focus on the scale, if you are eating right, following the Advocare guide and exercising your scale will reflect 0 when in reality you may be losing 10 lbs of fat but adding 10lbs of muscle so either way you are making a 20lbs difference in the positive direction for your health!!

I was just wondering are there any more posts about your advocare challenge? I see one for day 15 and then no more posts. Just wondering what you thought of it and if you are using the products still? I am trying to decide weither to use them or not. I am such a skeptic with things like this.

Thanks so much,
Dana
