One month ago, I embarked on a personal challenge. After being introduced to AdvoCare products and researching them at length, I decided to take the 24 Day Challenge, a healthy eating and nutritional supplement plan. As my clients know, I never recommend an exercise or give nutritional advice unless it is something that I have done first and agree with. The evidence behind the AdcoCare nutrition challenge was convincing, but I needed to experience it for myself. During my challenge, I didn’t change my exercise routine. I followed the nutritional recommendations that AdcoCare provided but didn’t change my eating habits much. I simply controlled portion sizes, made sure that I ate breakfast daily, and focused on clean eating. Below is a snapshot of the success that I experienced.

While I wasn't concerned with weight loss during the 24 Day Challenge, it was great to see a decrease in body fat, especially since most people begin the challenge with this goal in mind. The results that impacted me most were increases in lean body mass, increases in strength (specifically a 44 lb increase in deadlift), and an incredible increase in energy. As an endurance enthusiast, I'm used to losing muscle mass and strength when I train hard. For me, weight loss has always been synonymous with energy loss. I was amazed and impressed with how much my strength improved and how healthy I felt during the 24 days. If you're curious about these products and results, I'd love to share my experience with you further.
