If you follow me on Instagram (if you’re not, do it!), you may have noticed a few posts about AdvoCare. And, if you’re like me, you’re probably a little curious about it.
I’d actually been curious about Advocare for a little over a year, and, after not liking how my jeans fit for the last time, I bit the bullet and signed up for the 24 Day Challenge once I noticed a friend selling it. After my first challenge, I lost 16(!!) pounds, a pants size, and lots of inches.
A few days ago, I had a crazy spur of the moment trip to Mexico added to my calendar (yes, really), and so I’m hitting my products hard and tightening up my diet to continue seeing the results.
Here’s three reasons why I picked Advocare (and why Advocare may be a great pick for you):
I’m competitive. When I was on the Challenge, I felt like I was competing every day. Even now, I feel like I’m winning when I prep my meals or kill a tough workout. The nature of the Challenge, as well as the length, made it a perfect fit for my competitive nature.
I needed a kick in the butt, but not a quick fix. While the 24 Day Challenge requires you to adhere to a supplement program, it doesn’t promise a get-fit-quick scheme without also changing your diet and incorporating consistent exercise. This forced me to acknowledge and change my habits in order to be successful on this program.
The suggested nutrition is solid, and it doesn’t require you to starve yourself. This is big. Advocare advocates (that’s fun to read out loud) a whole foods, primarily plant-based, non-processed approach to nutrition. I. Love. This. This means the nutrition plan can be tailored if you are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, whatever. It teaches you to eat whole, nutritious foods, a nutrition strategy that is both widely accepted and easy to maintain.
