I'm on day 9 of 24 on the ADVOCARE 24 Day Challenge and I am already down a little over 10 pounds. I am shocked! My husband has lost 13 pounds. I'm not even at the half way point in the challenge, so I'm super excited to see how I finish.
I'm not going crazy at all, I'm just eating healthy and exercising an hour a day. And honestly all my cravings are gone. I have never followed a simpler program. And best of all, I feel GREAT!
Its laid out pretty simple for you, tells you what to eat and when. And there is even food suggestions, so it takes out all the guess work.
An example of my day is:
- Breakfast: Meal Replacement Shake blended with frozen berries in the Magic Bullet. This is packed with so much protein and is so filling, I don't even think about food for hours after drinking this.
- Morning Snack: 2 Rice Cakes with Cream Cheese and No Sugar Added Del Monte Peaches.
- Lunch: Wheat Pasta with a little Olive Oil and I usually add some tomatoes, green onions and a little Parmesan.
- Afternoon Snack: Raw Almonds.
- Dinner: Usually a salad and I mix it up between just a veggie salad or make it like a taco salad and add some beans in there and salsa. Or sometimes I will bake a potato and add salsa to that.
- Breakfast: Meal Replacement Shake blended with a banana in the Magic Bullet.
- Morning Snack: 3 Hard Boiled Eggs & Raw Almonds.
- Lunch: Either Grilled Chicken, BBQ'd Salmon or Turkey Breast along with a veggie and either pasta, rice or potatoes.
- Afternoon Snack: Low Fat Yogurt & Rice Cakes with cream cheese.
- Dinner: Usually the same as lunch or sometimes I make him a Veggie Omelet with Turkey Sausage.
So as you can see, we are eating and we are eating good. And it's great we don't have to cut out pasta, rice, potatoes, cheese, etc ... Along with this we are drinking lots of water, and we have 2 Sparks a day. And seriously, if you have never tried Spark, you must! It will be your new best friend, I promise you.
I will check back in soon, but wanted to get a update out here.
