My friend did it a few months before her wedding along with the beach body work outs and she looked amazing on her wedding day! Big dfference with the exercise and adding the vitamins and plan. the spark energy drink thing she said was very tasty and gave her crazy energy for her workouts.

I recommend you stick it out with P90X first.

How long have you been doing it?  Do you do it every day?  Do you skip/miss workouts?  Are you eating enough protein (40-60g) within 30 minutes after each workout?  Are you really pushing yourself as far as you can every time you work out?  (I push myself until I literally cannot do one more rep because my muscles are completely exhausted.)

I saw results with P90X within 2 weeks.  Four weeks in I was feeling pretty great about myself and other people started commenting on my new image too.  It is my absolute favorite workout program and I highly recommend it.

@SoontobeMrsKB:  I did it and loved it! I lost 15 lbs and 32 total inches and it was much easier than I thought! I’m actually planning on doing it again! My FI did it after I did and lost 15 lbs in the first 10 days and lost 25 by the end of the challenge. I was super bitter lol but hes a guy and they lost weight much easier than we do lollol

I am doing the 24 day challenge starting in January.  I’ve had friends do this in the past and have seen amazing results.

@SoontobeMrsKB: i did the 24 day challenge….well, it turned out to be more of a 14 day challenge actually.  the first 10 days for the cleanse were great.  i felt fantastic and my body was happy.  then i started the max phase which is where it all went downhill for me.  let me preface this with saying i work out 5-6 times a week, drink 1.5-2 L of water a day, and eat vegetarian 70% of the time and clean as much as possible.  after about 2 days on the max phase i felt “off” but didn’t think anything of it. day 3 more of the same but progressingly worse.  day 4 it got to the point where i was so dizzy/lightheaded, i couldn’t see straight.  my eyesight was all fuzzy and my head felt super heavy.  scarily all of this hit hard while i was driving.  thankfully, i was getting ready to park my car in the very near future.  i ended up going into work because i was near by and got 2L of fluids via IV and hung out for about 4 hours before i felt safe enough to drive…..i realize this is just me but just wanted to highlight the fact that “fixes” like advocare do have side effects as well.

I did the challenge and had to stop mid-way because once I finished the cleanse phase, the new supplements gave me migraines. Other people didn’t have the same problem so it may have just been my sensitivity but when I was on it, I loved it. I’m ready to do the cleanse again!

Sometimes when you make a drastic shift in your diet, your body has a hard time catching up.

I haven’t tried specifically Advocare, but on other supplement diets, I have gotten dizzy/foggy in the head, and have gotten massive, almost scary awful headaches (and I never get headaches). 

I’ve seen some bloggers talk about Advocare and… at the risk of sounding like an ass, I don’t get what the big deal is. I’d rather just eat healthy and drink veggie juice than drink some mystery powder that’s packed with fake sugar just to shed some water weight that will ultimately be put RIGHT BACK ON the second I stop the supplements. *shrugs*

I did it and would not do it again.  While I did lose some weight I’m positive it was from the diet you have to follow. No bread, cereal, crackers, white potatoes, or pasta. No milk or yogurt. It’s pretty restrictive. If you normally eat those items, cutting them from your diet for a month will make you lose weight without 200$ worth of pills.  The meal replacement shakes were a waste of money as they made me nauseous and I stopped using them.   I know a person who swears by advo but after trying it myself I say waste of money.

My fiancé and most of his office did it a couple months ago but like someone else said, I think it’s the diet more then pills that make you lose weight
