Hey guys, welcome to my Advocare review.
Well, not exactly, this is probably not going to be what you were expecting to find.
Instead of just filling the page with all of the typical stuff you find in a company review, I decided I would tell you why I choose Advocare products and what Advocare has done for me.
If you came looking for yet another boring technical review of Advocare, sorry to disappoint but that’s just not how I do things here on Next35.com.
Don’t worry though, I am not one of those who only focus on all the good things about Advocare either, there are something I don’t like and we will discuss those in detail below.
Afterall, my goal is not to get you to whip out your credit card and buy anything or join Advocare, (you won’t find any affiliate links on this page) my goal is simply to share my Advocare story and if you have any questions, I’ll be glad to answer them.
Great let’s get it going!
My First Experience With Advocare Products
I actually joined Advocare as a customer a little while back and I got started like most people do, with the Advocare 24 Day Challenge after reading a ton of Advocare 24 Day Challenge reviews.
At the time I had let my weight spiral out of control to the tune of 285lbs, which for my height put me right around 100 pounds overweight, needless to say I was desperate to find something that could help me get back on track and take my life back.
Quick fix diets and fads were my thing at the time so when my challenge arrived and I sat down to read the 24 day challenge guide, I could quickly tell that this was something entirely different than what I was use to.
At first, the thought of following a somewhat strict diet and making sure I took the products at the right times during the day was kind of intimidating because at the time I pretty much didn’t have any structure in my diet and really did and ate what-ever sounded good to me at the time.
I won’t bore you with all the details of my first challenge but I will say that it was difficult for me to stay on track at times because it was a complete 360 from what I was use to but I could really tell a difference within just a few days of starting the challenge which is what kept me motivated to see it through.
On day 25, I could tell I had lost some weight but had been avoiding the scale until I was finished with the 24 day challenge, I ended up losing almost 20 pounds but more importantly could feel more energy and the most important thing for me was that I felt like there was a chance for me to regain control of my health and my life which was huge for me, I had not felt that in a long time.
That Advocare 24 Day Challenge was my first experience with Advocare products and since it went so well for me, I decided to really take a deeper look into Advocare and see how I could continue using the products and also which products would better serve me as I traveled down my path to better health.
Day 25 and Beyond
After doing what seemed like days worth of research on Advocare and their products, I decided to join Advocare as a distributor, I knew I would be buying the products on a regular basis so it made sense to join for the discount and the opportunity to promote the products down the road if that is what I wanted to do.
I really didn’t know anyone in my area who was using Advocare products so I just picked someone from the list of distributors close to me to join under and I couldn’t have chosen a better sponsor, she instantly welcomed me into her team, introduced me to everyone she could and helped me picked out the products that would help support my overall health goals.
My original goal was to focus on the Advocare weight loss products at first then start to add in wellness products but after speaking with my sponsor we agreed that mixing in a few of wellness line products from the start would ultimately product better results in the long run.
The products that we decided on for me are:
• Advocare MNS 3
• Advocare Spark – I love the watermelon and the grape flavors
• Advocare Catalyst
• Advocare Arginine Extreme
I have tried several other Advocare products but for me these are the ones that best support me and my long term health and fitness goals.
As the weight continues to come off and I get closer to my overall goals I will be adding in some of the Advocare performance elite products to really take me to a whole new level of fitness.
Sorry, kinda got sidetracked there, let’s get back to my Advocare review and talk about why I love the company, the products and then talk about a few things I would change if I could.
What I Love About Advocare: The Company
- Advocare is a company that not only sponsors many sports teams in nearly every sport but they also give back to the community and to numerous charitable organizations.
- Advocare offers a debt buster program to help their distributors get out of debt, this may not seem like a huge deal to some people but for me it was, it shows that Advocare cares more about the people who chose to work with them than just what they can produce in sales.
- Advocare offers a ton of training to their distributors to keep them informed on the products and to help with their ongoing growth and personal development.
- Advocare’s 10 Guiding Principles – really shows what the company stands for and what has guided their phenomenal growth and success. (See The 10 Guiding Principles Below)
- Customer Service is always available to answer any of my questions, I have always gotten right through to a live person who was more than willing to help me however they could.
What I Love About Advocare: The Products
- Advocare puts all the nutritional information about every one of their products including full ingredient lists, directions for use and what the product is for on their website for everyone to see.
- All Advocare products are made with quality and safety in mind, that was one of the biggest deciding factors for me when making the choice to join Advocare.
- Advocare has a lot of non-paid professional athletes who use and endorse Advocare products to stay at the top of their game, if the products are good enough for a professional athlete then they are surely good enough for me.
- Price is very competitive to what I would pay for a similar product of the same quality at my local health and nutrition store.
What I Would Change About Advocare If I Could
There are not a lot of things I do not like about Advocare but there are a few, these are what I would personally change if I could.
- Product selection– it seems there are close to 100 different products in the Advocare catalog, it’s great to have a good selection but to me it seems like a lot of the product are very similar and the selection could be slimmed down a little to avoid confusion over which is the right product.
- Product being sold elsewhere online – I hate when I see that people are selling the products either through their own personal website or through online auction sites, which is allowing people to buy Advocare products that could potentially be out of date or potentially harmful, I wish something could be done to stop that.
- No samples available – I know a lot of people who want to try Advocare products but other than Spark there really is no way to give potential customers a sample of the products.
- Never sponsor my Bulldogs I live in Georgia and support my Bulldogs, Sanford Stadium would look good with big Advocare banners next to all the Chick-fil-a banners.
My Advocare Review – Final Thoughts
I decided to write my version of an Advocare review to share why I choose Advocare and why I love the company and their products and hopefully to inspire some of you who are on the fence about whether or not Advocare is right for you.
I honestly believe that I Advocare products have played a huge role in changing my life and have helped me to get on track with my health and fitness goals.
Today I am active in the gym 4-5 days a week, try my best to eat right and ensure that my body is fueled with the proper level of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to support my continued weight loss and overall health improvements.
I am not where I need to be but move closer and closer to my goals everyday, I have all of the before pictures and plenty of the progress pictures to post here on my blog, once I have my after pictures ready I will do a full post on my results using Advocare products so that everyone can see my truly amazing success story.
It was me who made the decision to turn my life around and finally do what I needed to get healthy but it was Advocare products that gave me the energy and spark to accomplish all that I have, I am truly blessed to have found Advocare and am thankful for the opportunity to be a distributor for this great company.
