Advocare WASTE of Money

Was excited just like I would be after listening to a car salesman.. I didn't think of the obvious guidlines. This product helps you lose weight bc you don't eat, you don't gain weight bc they don't push excersize so therefore you are being led to believe it is the PRODUCT, it isn't it's because you don't eat at all. The cleanse is a JOKE, I have not done anything except *** bc well you drink tons of water trying to follow guidlines. I could do that with a stool softner and it would work quicker and better than the "cleanse system"... The push the vitamins.. great but I can buy more for cheaper cost at a Wal-mart or Walgreens and be better. Oh and how since your so tired bc you eat nothing with energy boosting you are told buy Spark, drink Spark blah blah No.... you pay outragious amounts of money for what you could do by buying Fish Oil, Centrum and Metamucil... and eat properly.. SCAM.... It is a 300 dollar placibo package, you think it's the product when it ISN'T its not wanting to go away from the product bc you don't want to feel like you wasted your money but in the end and you lose 4 lbs in 24 days when you could spend 50 dollars and work out and lose more.. I hate spending money on myself and not my family and in this isntance it was a waste COMPLETLY...

I tried it and I hate the taste of the pills and they are too big. Also the drink is awful and I really didn't see any results.

I would rather stick to juicing and fresh vegetables and fruits.

Vitamins can be bought cheaper. Never again.

#941539

just completed the 24 day challenge. I lost 16 pounds.

Pretty happy. I will tell you that I would have lost the same amount of weight with or without buying the challenge kit. When it all comes down to it. It's simple.

You don't need any supplements to lose weight if you eat right and exercise. These products are no different from any product you by at a GNC or any Dietary supplement store. Not a GNC plug either (their prices are way too high). I know that people will state that you cannot flush your system without these supplements.

I say bologna. If you eat enough green vegetables, fruits, and fiber you will surely flush yourself of any toxins from eating incorrectly. At the end of the day if you just eat right and exercise you will gain your best results for losing weight. One last thing.

I never refer to eating right as a diet. I feel that diet has a negative connotation and sets you up for failure. If someone ask if you are on a diet.

Say NO, I just eat right. I am telling you it will help you maintain a healthy way of eating.

#937358

Dude your insane. I don't even know why I'm spending my hard earned free time responding, but here goes.

1-your mentor/coach was a bozo and didn't tell you what you should be doing(coach you on the correct steps to follow). 2-You eat 3 meals per day and several snacks between and the products are amazing I've been on them for 4 years and I'm a trainer and would recommend them to anybody. And yes I've tried a lot of the "normal average other vitamins out there) You do eat, quite a bit. If you don't your not going to burn calories and up your metabolism.

Yeah you could spend a lot less at some *** store and save some $$ but these r quality products and you get what you pay for. Go buy *** and your gonna get ***/ or just plain/OK... Products. Why don't u next time find a good coach who will build you up right and explain everything to you correctly.

It's very simple program just takes a lot of planning and effort :) Then you would be totally happy.

I have helped literally 20-30 people in the last.4 years loose a lot of weight AND inches and some of them didn't even have to workout to get the results. I Will put any of my challengers up on a pedestal for what they have accomplished :)

It helps many people! It may not of helped you but your body is different.

#927485

#1: this "$300 placebo package" costs WAY less than what you stated. Not even close to $300.

#2: I'm sorry you didn't eat much, I ate A LOT during the whole challenge including the cleanse.

Basically every couple of hours. Drank a lot of water too! Whoever gave you the idea that you shouldnt eat is COMPLETELY wrong. Maybe that's why you didn't lose anything...

Your body NEEDS nutrients and you will actually gain weight by not doing so.

#3: the scale doesn't always give you the answers you're looking for. The first challenge I did, I only lost 7 pounds but an overall TEN inches. You should have measured yourself and went by that rather than the scale...

#4: this program absolutely DOES push exercise.

These aren't magic pills. You need to put in a little bit of effort yourself if you want to see results.

I'm just saying that its not fair that you give these products a bad name when you clearly didn't follow the directions.

#923597

I lost 12 pounds on the Cleanse and total of 28 pounds on 24 day challenge. I thought day 3 and 4 were tough.

I had a little headache and was drained but after that I've felt incredible. And I don't understand anyone starving on the diet. I've ate more food than ever. Just a different eating schedule than before has made all the difference.

Was a life changer for me and nope I'm not a distributor.

#884038

I think you possibly did not follow the directions correctly. Because I ate.

I ate a lot. Every 2-3 hours I was eating and I was FULL. and I did *** a lot because I was drinking a lot of water. This is SO good for your body to drink water whether you are on the cleanse or not.

I am not sure if my 10.1 pound weight loss during the cleanse was better, or the cravings I got rid of while doing the cleanse (dairy and sugar). Maybe you should just do the cleanse and see how you fair following the directions...

#816912

This is most definitely NOT a scam!!! Most likely you

Had a bad experience because the person coaching you

Probably didn't explain anything to you not guide you

In the eating process.

You are suppose to eat and if you

Didn't nothing would work. All that would do is cause your body to starve.

So I'm sorry you didn't have a great experience but I did several fitness Challenges where I had a trainer and good delivered to me and it took Me 3 months to get the same results in less than 24 days with Advocare.

It's nutrition. Sad you weren't informed!

#783184

I ate really healthy for several years, and had lost the first 40 pounds or so by the time I started this, but had plateaued and struggled for over a year before finding Advocare - I was biking 30 miles a day, lifting 5 times a week, swimming 5 days a week... maybe overtraining but that is what it had built up to in my futile efforts to crack that plateau.

The diet certainly plays a major role, so I can't say it was just the products, but Spark is a definite boost. I can't say what is the definite cause... but I know I lost like 4 stubborn inches off of my waist in less than a month, along with 14 pounds. I have a six pack.

After 10 years, I have that back, and I had only used this for a month. And most impressively: I am doing it in the dead of maybe the worst winter in the upper-Midwest in several decades! Anyone who deals with REAL winter knows exactly what I mean. Smashing a plateau in January is unheard of.

For now, I like supplementing with Advocare. It has helped me get the results I wanted. I still want to lose another 8-15 pounds (we'll see), and they are going to be the hardest, so I'm restocking today in hopes I can keep making progress. But so far, it has definitely outperformed anything else I tried in helping crack a stubborn plateau (including pre-workouts and post-workouts and protein powders and all those other things which, scientifically speaking, work; but may not work for everyone).

And p.s. I have lost no strength - I have actually been training hard right on through and have gotten stronger while dropping weight fast. For me, and for those who actually put in any WORK to lose weight (and it will take a lot of that, there are no magic pills), this is not an expensive product. Not compared to how many hours you can work fruitlessly trying to lose weight, when following this strict eating plan (and supplementing with Advocare, I think, helps prevent deficiencies when you cut back on diet - that is the point, and it is why I have lost weight AND maintained strength and energy) can give such rapid and impressive results.

And they have been impressive, for me; I don't post pics but I do look good, and that is not something I would have said even four weeks ago.

So please give this a shot if you are desperate, as I was. It is an investment in your body (what could be more important?), and a relatively small one at that, and if you follow it to the letter, it just might change your life and outlook, as it has certainly changed mine.

#779274

All products like this whether mail-order food ***, drinks, pills are just scams. Another thing; you don't need cleanses.

Your own body cleanses itself; that is what a liver and other organs or for. Just because you *** from some drink doesn't mean you are cleansing your body any better. The people who invent this stuff make the money off the *** public that by it who lose their money in the process.

Eat healthy, drink healthy and exercise daily.

Buy a good pair of sneakers and jog or walk each day. Don't waste your money on all the gimmicks out there.

I did the 10 day cleanse with no problems, definitely need to drink the fiber drink quickly or it turns to a jello consistency.

However three days into the second phase of the 24 day challenge my face, neck, chest and back began to get very warm and red like I was sunburnt. I started to feel very itchy and my face began to tingle like it does right before it goes numb.

Obviously I knew i was having an allergic reaction so I took Benadryl and went to sleep.

The fourth day I woke up and my face was swollen, not horribly but enough to cause concern and go to urgent care. I told the doctor I had just started this new phase and while looking at the ingredients he noticed the crazy amount of niacin in the product. Side effects in high doses of niacin yep that's right redness of skin especially in the face and neck, itchy, numbness/tingling, and dryness in the skin.

So Long story short I'm on medications for a week and will not be using this product again. **Definitely consult your physician just in case u may be allergic to something in these products!!!

On a different note I know several people who use advocare products without any problems.

You are right that you can obtain the same nutrition results in other ways. Yes, you can be eating all those things that you indicate.

And yes, part of why you lose is because you are drinking more water, cutting out alcohol, fatty foods, etc.

However -- that's what the Advocare Cleanse plan does, it helps you break those habits, maintain healthier habits while on a structured plan. Once you are done, usually most of those habits will stick.

Is this neccessary to lose weight?

Nope!

Is this the ONLY way to lose weight and start a path towards getting healthy, and maintaining healthy habits?

Definitely Not! Everything you need to start (including the supplements, eating plan, meal replacements) is laid out for you, and it will most definitely kick start you will 5-10 lbs lost and healthy habits.

So, yes it definitely works. If you don't like it, and want to use another method, go for it!

Reality check on Advocare...

The complaints against Advocare as a biz is not justified...your success and or failure is up to you, its no different than doing mary kay or discovery toys, or anything else (i've done both btw). either you are made for that kind of work or you aren't. Don't bash the company if it didn't work out for you. use your head and don't buy so much product, you chose to buy the product, you chose to put yourself in that situation. I don't sell it, but I do use it and it works.

Funny how many people bash advocare because they are too poor to afford products. No one gives a *** about your peasant life style, if it works and you can afford it, great, if not stop *** and get a better job.

I made advisor in 3 weeks, I have many connections in the gym and many friends that train with me, as well as mentors who are champions in their sports, I have never approached a single person I don't know about the products because I truly could care less, I make about 500 dollars a month from advocare, I only did it because I wanted the 40% discount, everything else just sort of came to be. If you want help getting started with your business email me at obaidin46 at yahoo.com I can give you advise and tell you what worked for me.

#602523
@PissedConsumer602381

First you chide others for their comments about the high price of Advocrap, and then you announce that you only signed up because you wanted the 40% discount! LOL!

You make $500.00 per month? Right... With over 95% of people losing money with Advocrap, the only way you can be taken seriously is by providing verifiable tax returns, profit and loss statements, etc.

BTW - The correct phrase is, "COULDN"T care less", and NOT "could care less". The two phrases mean completely different things.

Based upon what you have written on this website, you are one of the LAST people anyone should be taking nutritional, or business, advice from.

#519180

Yes you are right. Your success depends on how much you can bug your family, friends, friends of friends, co-workers etc.

to buy these silly products. You can do all of this without this goofy pills and powders. Remember snake oil salesmen? This is a modern version of that.

And there will be many on here who will defend it as there are many who bought the oil. I believe that probably half of the people on here who defend it know it doesn't do squat. They just have to save face because they are invested and don't want to look foolish. And WTF is Kickstart for Kids?

Seriously? A caffeine drink for children?

Wow, hilarious how the *** people on here bash advocare and their reps, then cry when someone bashes their own stupidity.

If you can't afford advocare, shut the *** up and stop crying. It's worked out very well for MANY people. I'm an advisor, I never approach people because I could care less if someone wants to buy products from me, I just wanted the 40% discount. Without approaching anyone, just from the people under me I make 500 dollars a month, while that's not much, it's still a lot considering it's FREE MONEY. People see me work out at the gym, and ask me what I'm on, simple as that.

Don't cry about a company or their reps when all you know is what you google'd in 4 minutes.

Email me at obaidin46 at yahoo if you have any questions.

#531019

Any company that uses religion to sell products is shady to me. I'd be more interested in the products if they sold themselves, and didn't have to rely on saying the company is christian. Selling is selling--whether you use sex or religion to sell your product, you're still using something other than the quality of the product.

#466630

Jeff....you said that perfectly! "All because a company says its Christian based, doesn't meant its represents Jesus"......GREAT POINT!

#446558

If you have done your research you would know that most products that contain protein, do not just contain soy, they are a blend. Just wanted to point out your lack of research.

#445892

Really? What other nutritional company test for over 200 toxins, impurities, and banned-substances?

Why do you think Olympic athletes, NCAA and other pro athletes use AdvoCare because it works, its safe and it is the best nutritional supplement you can put in your body period! There are other brands you can purchase at your local supplement/vitamin store that has over 14% arsenic along with other toxins in it and people are drinking these. This is a proven fact on consumer reports. Do your research before you make comments that are not true, I have.

I personally have helped several people with their sports performance, endurance, weight-loss and becoming debt-free. Again, do your research....

#415763

What a *** this guy is. Just keep spamming your friends with Advocare ***, if you have any friends left outside the company.

I see these hacks annoying people everyday on facebook. Now I know why my Dad threw the Amway people out on their *** when I was a kid.

#401623

Hey Anonymous - you are great example of all the class and dignity of an AdvoCare rep. Keep that attitude you will go a long way. I am sure you are just attacking the other lady because you were fired from the same truck stop.

#400278

It's funny that you all latch on to the truck stop comment and the Christian based company as if every single person in Advocare is a Christian. Which is certainly not the case but the fact is AdvoCare is the best.

Do I drink Spark cause it's the best? NO! I drink spark cause it brought me out of debt and pays my college tuition w/o any financial aide. That's why I drink spark.

Now back to Christianity if you want to see what Jesus can do for your life and on top of that hang with Champions, get in the company go to "success school" and get your world ROCKED! Can't prove me wrong until you do it.

Advocare can't be the best. ....and i know that because they don't even manufacturer their own products.

Clearly, the best nutritional company would start with world class manufacturing which they do not. In fact, they don't even use world class contract manufacturers. They're also not the best because their reps attack other people's character, as you do, when discussing another subject.

Why would anyone buy product from someone who is as ignorant about their own products as Advocare distributors. GOOD LORD!!!

lol...so sad how many miserable people are on here. I paid 3k to hit advisor, and sold all the products at a discounted rate.

At the end I lost about 100 dollars from my initial investment, and ended up with a 40% discount rate. I have 3 people under me who I didn't approach, they met me at the gym and inquired about the products I use, then a week later became distributors.

I make about 300 a month on advocare, and I never approach anyone. While some may consider this a failure, I take it as a huge success, you get what you put in, I put in hardly anything, and came out with a steady income that will only get bigger if I chose to put more effort in

You can claim the ingredients or whatever your vag has issues with, but at the end of the day all the ingredients are disclosed on the website, if you're too much of a fool to be able to comprehend simple english, then you should prob not worry yourself over critiquing products :P

#602534
@PissedConsumer602386

So, which is it? In one post you said that you make $500.00 per month. In this post, you say that you make "about" $300.00 per month. Is it the drugs that you take? The hits to the head? If simple math is that difficult for you, why in the world should anyone accept your advise?

You got yourself caught up in the mlm sales pitch, dropped a bunch of cash on ***, and now you're trying desperately to recoup some of your losses by scamming others.

It doesn't take more than a third grade education to know that if someone can give you a 40% discount that they are charging you at least 40% too much to begin with!

You would do well by hitting the books instead of the weights. Education is your friend, embrace your friend!

Dear MR. Charles,

The average start up business enjoys these statistics:

First Year – 85% success

Second Year – 70% success

Third year – 62% success

Fourth Year – 55% success

Fifth Year 50% success

The average income (after expenses) is $45,000; about equal to the Gold 3 Star .44% in Advocare.

The Ohio State University in 1999 found that only 26% of newly established restaurants failed in the first year with a further 19% and 16% failing in the second and third years respectively.

Again, Advocare has a failure rate of over 95%!

Anyone who has not partaken of the "kool-aid" and possesses ANY common sense can see that mlm is a failure of a business model and should be avoided at all costs.

Dietitians and nutritionists need at least a Bachelors degree in order to become licensed.

Why in the wold would anyone want to get their nutrition advice from an uneducated salesman who's main motivation is to get people to "sign-up"???

#410111

Wendy...."Nobody, in their right mind, would get involved in a business with a 95% failure rate."

Any start-up business has a 95% failure rate, Advocare just requires comparatively minimal initial costs. And immensely reduced opperating costs. So what's your point?

Direct Marketing will ALWAYS work. Its a numbers game and if you are focusing on the losing numbers, that is what you will get.

"(0.44%)...make a "reasonable" income...." What is "reasonable" to you? To them? Keep in mind MOST people are involved with Advocare AS CUSTOMERS, and not interested in taking the business side seriously.

Finally, NAOMI, you can contact me for information on the products. They are simple and vitamin-based. You pay more, but what you pay for is a SERVICE attached to the product. A person who you can call for information, a person you can talk to about nutrition. A person who has seen results on the products. chuckan_18@***.com.

Sincerely,

Charles

#408701

Acording to Advocare's income disclosure statement less than half of one percent (.44%) are ever able to make a reasonable income selling their stuff.

With all these people saying they are making bunch of money one of two things can only be true; the few people making money are posting all over the net under different names or every body is lying - fake it till you make it.

If Advocare's income disclosure statement is wrong then they are facing some serious legal repercussions.

So, which is it? Who is doing all of the lying?

#408472

i love advocare and i have been doing it for four years and every year my income goes up. our income is $80,000 a year for the last 2 years. it does work and like everything else there is a system to follow and if you don't follow it, it will not work.

I have financial freedom.

#402738

Naomi, your best and only option (unless your doctor states otherwise) is to eat right and exercise.

There is no magic pill, powder or potion that will cause you to lose weight. No matter what sellers want you to believe.

Your best bet is to go directly to your doctor and take their advice.

I have been in fitness and supplements a lot longer than 8 years, and I can tell you that Advocare is a waste of money.I am currently an Epidemiologist Division Director, and conduct research daily, and can tell you that this product does not stack up to many others. I also was in a special duty assignment for 8 years in the military before I got into medicine, and currently am very active in combat sports.

I am very educated on what I put into my body, and Advocare is not a product I would endorse to anybody.

There are much cheaper, more effecive and less riskful products available. If any Advocare person would like to have an educated conversation about the suppliments, medicine, or why I don't advocate this product, feel free to ask, I don't hide.

#355052

Judging by your writing style, you either lack any higher education or refuse to use it.

If you're making a profit selling Advocare, prove it. Otherwise, you're just blowing smoke. (BTW, a profit can only be shown after all expenses are paid)

If you truly did research the company, and still made the choice o get involved, you're a fool. Obviously you only found what Advocare wants you to find. Nobody, in their right mind, would get involved in a business with a 95% failure rate.

As far as mlm being the "business of the future", that statement alone proves just how misguided you really are. Direct selling worked in the 1950's. It's since been replaced with much more effective modes of selling. In order for direct sales to be of any real significance today, customers will have to completely change they way the shop and buy goods.

To cap off the lunacy of your post, you seem to honestly believe that this was a good forum to place a sales pitch.

MLM does fails over 95% of the time. This is a proven fact.

Advocare products do nothing but empty your bank account, cause you to loose friends and family and act a fool by trying to convince people that you've found a "magic formula".

Advocare- not for ignorant people

Advocare is a great product. Back in Xmas I began my weightless journey of exercising and eating healthy. I worked hard and did extensive and intense workouts to lose 35lbs by April. I was 160 at 5'9 and had been 195. Over the summer I creeped back up to 170 with unhealthy splurging. By august, I had been exhausted and hungry for 8 months. My mother was recommended by a friend to use advocare to help her type 1 diabetes since starting she has cut her insulin in half. I, having already had my success, said *** no. To support my mom, I reluctantly agreed to do the 24 day challenge. I have lost 12 lbs and I'm not thinking about my next meal or napping after school. I have been able to tone up my flabby arms with the same exercises I've been doing since December. We've met alot of people at the business end that have had success but also some who pulled out and got their money back so all these bad reviews sound like an ignorance to the instructions and training videos that are readily available. It's a great product and it's changed my family for the better.

I started Advocare 4 months ago and I have never felt better. I started with the 24 day challenge and continued with the program.

Am I where I want to be? No, but I am on the road there. I have lost 1 pants size and my energy is through the roof. I know there are skeptics to anything out there, but my challenge to you is this, just try it.

You don't have to sign up you don't have to ever use it again. I will bet you that once you try it even just a couple of the products you will be a believer and you will FEEL and SEE the difference. All products are not created equal, I know that no one at Walmart or GNC has ever called me to check and see if the products I bought are working or how they make me feel or if they aren't that I could turn them in for something different? Show me one time that has happened and I will stand on my head.

Yes this is a marketing business, and??? Why is this frowned upon? Sharing products you love and believe in and use every day, this is wrong? Isn't that what every business should be built on?

My plan may not end up being your plan but I promise Advocare has a plan for you. Also do you know how many people in America are overweight, and in financial trouble? Way too many! My friend was paid $8,000 last month as a Advocare distibutor, yeah who wants to be a stay at home parent and make $8,000 a month and make her family healthy????

UM, ME that's who!!! If that is not for you then move on and find what works for you.

If this may be for you please contact me or go to my page. www.advocare.com/15039****

Not all products are the same. An independent test was done on many products made by many companies, including those off store shelves.

No Frank, to think they are just as good is ignorant. Study shows you don't usually get what is posted on the bottle. Advocare came out one of the top 2 companies.

You do get what you pay for from Advocare. Don't knock it if you haven't tried it.

Your post is a fantastic example of ignorance. Please, prove me wrong by replying with proof of your claim, "Advocare came out one of the top 2 companies."

#519407

I really is too bad that some people such as Frank seem to think that just getting the same product elsewhere will give you the same result. Some people bash others for wasting money on all kinds of things.

MLM has changed some people who wanted change and not helped people who didnt want it enough. MLM's are truly a You Do You Get type of business.

It sounds like you may have been given products and didnt use them according to the instructions. My best friend lost 50lbs and has kept it off for 4 years. My wife just did her 24 Day Challenge and lost only 15lbs but lost 4 dress sizes and 25 inches.

We believe that other companies and products probably work but Advocare works for us period. Im sorry that you may have had your bad experience but maybe you should look in the mirror first and you may just find out why it didnt work for you.

#351932

People dislike mlm for a reason. A lot of reasons actually. A lot of very real reasons.

If you want to waste your money on Advocare, that's your choice.

But remember this, there is no "magic pill" that will help you lose weight. There are no ingredients in Advocare products proven to work. What "active ingredients" Advocare does include are not in sufficient quantities to do anything but take your money.

The only safe and proven way of losing weight is my eating right and exercise. All of Advocares weight loss "programs" include directions on changing your eating habits and exercising. THAT is where the results come from.

If Advocare actually had a product proven to help you lose weight, do you really think that it would be kept a secret known only to this within the Advocare "circle"??? It's all over the news and around the world if were true.

If you insist on using nutritional supplements, buy them from a company that is not mlm. You'll save yourself a ton of money and what is sold on store shelves is just as good, if not better, than what you'll buy from any mlm.

#803319
@PissedConsumer351932

You are incorrect. For example, the Meal Replacement Shakes are a perfectly balanced carb to protein ratio.

That results in hormonal balances, therefore a slender physique. Also, Advocare IS all around the world, now. It's been around for 21 years, and is now in the Top 20 Largest Companies by the Direct Sales Association. Our products are in every NFL locker room and is on the "march to a billion dollar company" this year.

It took Nike longer to reach a billion dollars.

Just a thought that you should probably do a little more research before making assumptions. :)

@PissedConsumer351932

That's where your wrong Frank D.. Last September I was over 310 lbs and started with the 24 day challenge..

To date I have lost 70 lbs and still losing.. I have tried all kinds of products and diets and Advocare has literally changed me and my family's life.. If people could get our caliber of products then why is it that we have professional athletes that endorse our products and are compensated with our products? I currently make 5k/mo as a distributor just by sharing what Advocare is all about..

With this company I have changed many lives..

Believe it or not.. We"re the real deal...

#351675

Frank D., I see you continuing to bash Advocare in these forums and I'm wondering what your experience has been to make you take so much of your own time to find arguments against it?

I'm very skeptical about Advocare right now but I am trying the products to see whether they are something that might benefit my clients. So far I've had some very good success with their Spark product (substituting it for my coffee) so I'm now going to try the 24 day challenge.

In terms of money spent, you really need to look at it in terms of whether you get value from the product or not. Someone can sign up with a 24 hour fitness for $19.99 per month and have it be a complete waste of their money as they never go, it doesn't fit their lifestyle, and they don't get any healthier. The same person can pay $600 per month for a personal trainer and get excellent results. And that $600 per month will be the best money they've ever spent because they've found a way to improve their health that works for them and their lifestyle.

It's not good enough to just bash a product because it may not have worked for you. Not everything is for everyone. I've looked at your references and I am not impressed with your arguments. Again, I just started trying Advocare products. I actually came to this forum to see what the detractors say about the products as I often get better information this way than listening solely to those who like the product. So far though I've not seen anything other than a dislike for MLM's in general.

My AdvoCare Sponsor Lied to Me!

My AdvoCare sponsor lied to me in an effort to get me to spend $2100.00 on products that I ultimately couldn't sell. He told me that there was no risk involved, anything I couldn't sell I could return for a full refund--no questions asked. Turns out, AdvoCare doesn't give refunds, they only do exchanges up tp $250.00. The only way to get a refund is to resign as a distributor. Well that was an easy decision. I never would have spent the money if I knew I couldn't just send the products back. I'm now going through the convoluted process of filling out forms, getting them notorized, and shipping all this stuff back, where I'll have to await their assessment of the condition of the products to see if I get my money back. Stay away from these people. The products are not worth the headache or the dishonesty.

Unfortunately you had a bad experience and it stinks that the person who told you this did lie but Advocare as a company does not promote that type of behavior or marketing strategy. I myself.

Not a distributor, just a consumer who had hones coaches and have succeeded following the program.

I have not been forced in any way to purchase the Advocare products unless I wanted them. Hopefully you have gotten or will get your money back but the products are worth it if you follow the program.

#842232

screw scientific proof, people want to lose weight advocate is a good place to start, its more about using a method to change your dieting habit, so is there scientific proof god exists...*** no, but millions of people will stand by saying without a doubt they know he does

#783228

Some of these people kill me. My father is a distributor, he also is a teacher at a high school and a head football coach so during about 7 months of the year he is too busy to do anything.

He is making $2000 a month from advocare with only being able to work the business a few months a year and he has only been in for 2 years. I agree with the posts that say it's take hard work to make money it's not just given. Sadly there are those that will pressure people to spend all this money on product. However, making an advisor order roughly $2,100 I think puts you at a 40% discount on anything you want to personally buy plus you make 40% off of everything you sell.

So it actually faster and smarter to do so. You can they sell that product at a price you choose and make profit. The key is not to push it on people. About 4 years ago me and my father were out town and met this amazing couple who had a little advocare tent set up.

They us free spark and their business card and said to call if we were interested or had any questions that was it no pressure. ( this couple was at $11,000 a month when we met them today they are currently at $25,000 a month)For the next year or so we would go to their website that was on the card and buy spark( which my family and friends think is amazing). Then one day my dad decided to give them a call. They drove 2 hours to meet us and talk about the company.

That day he became a distributor and we started trying more products if was playing college football at the time and HAD to put on weight. I tried just about everything GNC offered and nothing would work. So finally I tried the performance elite products (musclegain and post workout recovery, and corplex. And along with doing my football workouts I put on 25lbs of muscle in 35 days and all my maxes in my lifts went up.

My dad hasn't been under 200lbs since high school. Just a year and a half ago he was 245lbs.He took a 24 day challenge and lost 12lbs and never felt better in his life he continued to take the MNS packs with has your vitamins and appetite suppressant and this like that in it he got down to 185lbs and has kept that weight off and hasn't gained a pound back. He said the best thing is he can still eat whatever he wants he just gets full faster so he doesn't eat as much. I myself have been a advocare distributor for 7 months now and even with my dad already have all my family and older people we know as customers forcing me to go out and meet new people and develop relationships I am making $600 a month and that's with me having classes and a job.

I have NEVER heard any customer I or my dad has sold product to complain. But I have heard a ton of "these products or amazing". Some people run the business in a bad way and force it on people but don't let those few make your decision about how you feel about the company. It is a great opportunity to become healthy and if you so choose you can run the business and make money.

But trust me when I tell you if your expecting to just get a lot of money for doing nothing your wrong. It takes a good amount of work and it helps a ton to be a people person. If you do want to run the business but don't want to pressure friends and family have a mixer at your house or anywhere and invite is many people as you want. We brought in the people we met that first got us started to come talk but if you have a good knowledge of the products and their purpose you can do it yourself.

Buy some product ( I suggest spark) and give everyone there a free sample or two. Explain the products and how everything is all natural and has the informed choice label on every product. Explain what all the major products do and why they are so much better than the other companies products then explain the business opportunity to them and how all of that works. Allow them to ask questions.

Would be best to have the website pulled up so you can look at it if you can't answer a question. Then say thank you for coming tonight if you have any questions or want to get into the business give me and call and give all of them your business card. That way you can explain the entire business to family and friends or even coworkers and you havnt put any pressure on them. You even said to call later if your interested so they know your not expecting an answer right then.

Tell them some people aren't cut out to run a business like this so if you don't want to or don't feel your cut out for it that's completely fine. This like this are how you get leads without pressuring people. You can also buy one of the advocare water bottles with the logo on it and take it with you places to drink spark. People will see it and ask what it is.

You can then explain what it is and what company makes and if they want to know more then you have another lead if they don't seem to care after you explain what it is or if they don't ask more about it I should say then you leave it alone. These are all things my family does to try to share these amazing products and the business possibility with other people WITHOUT pressuring anyone to buy anything.. With that being said if you are thinking about taking advocare products why not go ahead and buy a distributor kit? It's $79 you get $50 worth of samples, a book explains the business, a product guide, I believe it also comes with a DVD on how to be successful, and you get your own website where you can manage everything for if you decide to try to run the business.

Also you start off getting 20% all products you buy yourself and after you sell or buy $500 worth that goes to 25% then eventually you can get to the top level of ADVISOR in which you get that 40% off and make that 40% on what you sell. Some independent distributors may lie but advocare doesn't. Go to their website and read all about it. It's changed my family's life by making us all healthy and also by providing some income.

This may be strange to some, but what sold me was not completely the products (before I tried them) what sold me was the fact that they have spokespersons/endorsers like drew brees and Jason written and many other famous athletes that do it for $0!!! What athlete or celebrity do you know that would take time out of their schedule to do commercials and other promoting things for free, not getting paid a dime.

They do it because they take the products and they work.

Hope this helped

#783788
@PissedConsumer783228

Good grief!

First off, Advocare pays their endorsers. If you can't get a simple fact like that right, then everything else you say has lost credibility.

Second: 99% of people investing in Advocare lose money.

The entire multi-level marketing industry shares this failure rate. People fail because the system is severely flawed and only benefits the very few at the top of the pyramid.

One example of how it's flawed is this: each and every time you sign up someone within your "circle of influence" you have created a direct competitor to yourself. Sales teams in a proper business model maintains territories in order to protect commissions.

Mlm completely undermines this basic concept and therefore hurts it's sales force.

Lastly, you (and others) wrongly attribute the health benefits you perceive to the products when in fact there is absolutely no scientific proof that these supplements do anything but cause your bank account to "lose weight".

Here is a bit of common sense for you - we all know that putting chemicals and highly processed foods into our bodies will hurt us. Maybe not immediately, but certainly down the road. Yet, for some crazy reason, you honestly believe that putting the very same chemicals and highly processed products into your body is "good for you" because someone labels them as "supplements". Educate yourself.

You need it. (you also need to learn how to use paragraphs!)

#979562
@PissedConsumer783788

You are clearly the one who needs education.

First: Advocare pays Drew Brees for his endorsement which is less than a quarter of what he could make from Gatorade, Nutrisystem, Powerade, etc.

All of the other endorsers ARE NOT PAID. They only receive product, but they could simply go elsewhere if they choose to.

Second: I have been on Advocare for 5 months and have lost 45 pounds. I have been eating right for over a year but I am unable to exercise due to having fractured my spine several years ago.

My dieting efforts only helped me lose 5 pounds in the previous year.

Third: I have a friend who has PCOS and a Hypothyroid condition. She has been trying to lose weight for YEARS. Since starting Advocare, she is down over 80 pounds and about to run her first 5k.

Fourth: Advocare has been around for over 20 years. I have been in it for only 5 months, so it is safe to say I did not get in at the beginning. I currently have only spent $79 for my distributor kit which gave me $50 worth of product, so you could say I have paid $29. In return for my purchase, I get a discount on product that I use and believe in.

This easily equates to well over the $29 I paid.

Additionally, I have made close to $5000.

All of my team members under me (with the exception of 4 who choose not to sell) have made their money back as well. You know nothing of these products and clearly don't understand indentation to start a new paragraph.

Great explination Rw. I believe i know your dad and he got me started and what a great guy he is and very honest and laid back.

#740020

Of course eating healthy and exercise will yield results. I chose Advocare because I wanted to see better results and guess what the products did just that.

The 24 Day Challenge really jump started my weight lost and I continue to take the products. And no I'm not making money off Advocate...

#740075
@PissedConsumer740020

Good nutrition does NOT come from chemicals and Advocare is full of man made chemicals.

You are not getting healthy, you are slowly poisoning yourself.

Advocare Scam

They sing you up, place big orders on your account so they get a bonus, It may work for some people, but if you use the same product every day (that has atificial flavor and food dye that are terible for you body) its bad. Just like anything you need a balance. Start a healthy diet, eat good, fruits, vegtables, grain's ect. If you want to help people help them for free ( its called charity or just help them without them handing you thier wallet!) pyrmid scam!!! It has split some of my family apart becuse they are not interested, no there selling makeup? Yeah energy drink and makeup, thats the wierdest two none realated things Ive heard of, they just want your money...GO ORGANIC!!!!

All u advocare croonies are idiots. These products have nothing to do with ur weight loss or new found energy.

Ur mind is the most powerful tool that can make u lose weight and have energy as long as u diet properly and excercise regularly and are disciplined in staying in shape. Millions of people in the 70's, 80's, 90's, and early 2000's never had this *** and knew how to stay in shape and lose weight the ole fashion way of diet and excercise.

Visalus and Herbalife are the same *** products as Advocare. Only reason Advocare is more popular is that they have better marketers and big name celebrities getting paid big bucks to advertise Advocares products.

#772444

I took this product for 24 days (the 24 day challenge) and it absolutely worked for me. I lost 8 lbs during and then 17 more later.

#738241

I love the way someone calls a multi-level business model a pyramid scam simply because they were unable to be successful at it.

I've tried exactly 3 multi-level systems, none of which were successful, but THEY DO WORK for those who are good at it.

Trust me. Sales...if you aren't good at it, then it won't work.

Another big help in MLM is to already have a lot of contacts. Not talking about your facebook friends here, though that can help too. My favorite band's manager advertised the AdvoCare system and a bunch of people bought it.

Everything that doesn't work for you is not necessarily a scam.

Besides, the initial post looks like it's from someone who didn't actually try it.

I am a consumer of AdvoCare (Not a distributor) and I am currently on day 6 of their 24-day challenge. I've lost 11 pounds and I'm not hungry and I feel good. Can't say I feel better than before I started, but not worse, either.

I started at 301 pounds, so I have a lot to lose. It might not be nearly as effective per pound lost if you are only 20 or so pounds from your ideal weight.

So far, I recommend it. It's something like $168 on Amazon if you don't want to deal with a distributor.

Good luck!

#738346
@PissedConsumer738241

MLM enjoys a 95% failure rate for those that invest in it - that's what makes it a scam.

If you did your homework, you'd understand this fact.

You'd also know that none of Advocare's products have been tested and that they're full of chemicals.

But hey, you have some weight to lose. so...

#827428
@PissedConsumer738346

95% of every type of company fail in the 5 years buddy. Plus, the investment with AdvoCare is $79! What an investment :-).

#723710

A friend of mine became a Distributor and went to the seminar about how to build her business in Texas and I became a distributor just to get the discount on the products. I have no interest in selling the products as I am not a salesperson and I don't care to start another MLM adventure.

That said, the product Spark is ok, but I am bothered by the artificial flavors, colors and sweetener. I don't think they say it is a supplement but I know my friend gets quite a buzz and huge energy from it!

Of course, if you drink 2 or 3 servings a day it is going to give you energy. I don't think the products are worth the money.

#720672

Not to mention you'll not have any friends left after 8 months of cramming this down their throats!!! :grin

#680813

My friend sales this stuff and they want everyone to sell because everyone who sales underneath they make a profit on. Did they lose weight?

Absolutely, but they changed their whole diet. When you go from eating out and processed foods to veggies and dish of course you will lose weight. DUH! I took

The supplements for a whe and no difference was made.

It's almost a cult following but when you are making loads of money off of people then I could see why they would promote it.

Exercise people! Get your nutrients rom food and FDA approved vitamins.

#645051

The products work, the business model works the variable is weather or not the person is going to work. There is no product or diet or work out ect that is going to work if you sit on your *** and eat pizza, drink beer and eat Oreos and the only exercise you get is to walk to the bathroom and *** that *** out.

AdvoCare does not claim to be a miracle pill, you have to eat right, and no that does not mean to eat like a *** bird to loose weight and take the products to help fill in the gaps in nutrition the food does not supply. Spark gives you added energy, other products they have help you control your appetite and cravings. Also they promote working out, you have to work out to burn calories to. People that aren't *** understand this stuff.

Good Sponsors/Distributors should understand and help people they get started on the products understand this to. Bad Sponsors or Distributors who are out for a quick buck or look to cut corners and lie to try and get more sales are the ones who give this type of business a bad name.

Also the business work if you "talk" to people and follow up i.e. not sending our mass emails or facebook blast and expect to get paid.

You have to work. Its a numbers game you have to talk to a lot of people and work on yourself, work on how you talk to people ect. You will get paid and paid good if you work.

If you quit or failed its your fault and nobody else's. Don't blame your sponsor or the business model blame yourself.

You didn't do the work or put in the time and effort or work on yourself or do your research on how direct sales works.

So stop bashing AdvoCare.

Advocare is awesome

Advocare is fantastic. Sorry but if you didnt like it you did something WRONG. It is very easy to follow and the products are amazing. Most people who say it didn't work are lazy and just want a magic potion that instantly gets rid of fat while they sit back and do nothing. Sorry Thats not how it works, nor do they lead you to believe that, these are supplements to ASSIST you while you work out. And the company is great and offers amazing business opportunity to EVERYONE. Thank you for listening,I will happily go drink my delish Advocare shake. Good day!

Someone didn't do something wrong because they had a reaction to Advocare due to side effects. Just because it worked for you doesn't mean others need to be put down critically since they were fantastic for you.

I don't want to judge you for judging, but if we don't know the stories of others, doctor's scientific proof on the ingredients, and how it's affected people in a negative way, means we don't know beyond the shadow of a doubt, and shouldn't say "well people are wrong" if they don't like Advocare products. You have no proof, and these people have major scientific proof from their doctors regarding the ingredients.

I'd listen. Glad it worked for you, and you have no side effects, but I'd advise you or anyone to see a doctor first.

#898450

ADVOCARE ROCKS!!! It has given me and my husband back our life.

Down 53lbs. since March and husband down 63lbs. I am down 3 pants and 2 shirt sizes and he is down 5 pants and 3 shirt sizes. I am no longer diabetic or high cholesterol.

I have tried every thing all my life with no success. With Advocare it gave us the will to change our old habits. We are truly blessed.

Advocare works.

#825964

I just finished the 24 day challenge yesterday. Followed all the guidelines and worked out 6 days a week.

About the last week or so I had gained weight and weighed more then when I started.

Eating better is always a good choice but the ridiculous amount of "supplements" you take is absurd. I didn't pay all that money to gain....I could have done that on my own.

#992312
@PissedConsumer825964

I have no affiliation with Advocare and never met you - so I am only guessing, but perhaps working out so much; you did actually lose weight, but gained muscle? Muscle weighs more than fat.

It's possible, but you would be the one to judge that by how you look, feel, and how your clothes fit. That just is a very real possibility.

#707971

Fruits and vegetables are a lot cheaper than supplements, and they are proven to help lose weight through peer reviewed literature. There is no science backing advocare.

#440306

heather,

According to Advocare all of their products work for everyone. Obviously, this is not the truth.

You trusted some store clerk for dietary information and they were wrong. Did you learn your lesson? No! You went to some uneducated Advocare rep. and fell for the hype.

Why you lost weight has everything to do with changing your diet and exercising and NOTHING to do with the products you're wasting your money on!

#440154

i spent over 400 at complete nutrition on products that the sales person told me would work amazing not only did i not loose weight i was sick half the time. then they refused to refund any of my money.

i spent 200 on advocare and dropped over 30 pounds and felt amazing enough i joined for the discount. not all products work for everyone and all nutrition companys have products that suck ***

#415696

My sister tried the plan and followed it to a T....she is not lazy at all. She gained a pound.

she discovered she has Hashimotos...My husband tried it as well and it did not work for him. It does not work for EVERYONE...many situations where it might not work...

#588738
@PissedConsumer415696

I have Hadhimotos disease also, and as long as my thyroid levels are in the correct range I don't have any problem losing the weight with these products , but if my levels are out of range I don't lose and may gain like your sister no matter what I do. She should try again once her thyroid levels are where they need to be.

#588753
@PissedConsumer588738

Or, stop taking advocrap and start eating right.

There is absolutly zero scientific proof that Advocare does anything other than empty your wallet.

Advocare is a waste of money

Can't emphasize enough how little value there is in buying Advocare products. Seems like yet another multilevel marketing plan to fleece customers, lighten wallets with nothing remotely close to any effective products. The distributor claims there is a 100% money back...

AdvoCare Complaints

I think it is SO funny that people complain about AdvoCare just because they didn't follow the success system and they did not follow the instructions on the 24 Day Challenge. Every person that I have revealed the product to has lost at least 10 lbs on the Challenge and people need to realize that it isn't a quick fix, it is a lifestyle change. If you want a quick fix or cannot follow instructions, don't use AdvoCare or put the company down because you don't know how to follow instructions or read labels or have enough will power to get to the body you want. AdvoCare builds FIT people, not skinny people.. so don't try to bad mouth AdvoCare just because you cheated on your diet!!!

First of all, I was a rep when the company was very young and Charlie was still running things. There is ALWAYS a refund on products consumers purchase...and Advocare promotes 100% refund on all products.

Second, in order for products to work as expected, it is up to the rep that sold the products to work diligently with their customers to insure satisfaction.

This sell-and-split attitude gives any company a bad wrap (even though Advocare deserves the bad wrap). You (rep) cannot say people don't follow directions, you have to guide them - you're an *** and shouldn't be in the business.

I find all these comments funny.. I've read through and done the research on these product.

I have seen positive effects of advocare that's why I'm trying it... And before anyone would like to call me ignorant I would like to state that i have always been an active person but due to steriods(from being asthmatic) and a *** diet I have put on more weight then healthy. Ww DOESN'T work for everyone... Doing the diets yourself DOESN'T always work....

This is a great program for some people...

If you DON'T want to use it or try it then don't... Your life your decision but don't make people feel like *** because they chose to do something that would work for them....

If you people actually did any research none of you would be using Advocare! The stuff is full of man made, synthetic, chemicals. Y'all need to check out the Facebook group "Advocare:the truth".

Missy, there is no reason to assume all disgruntled individuals that have used this product are "the fat people". Those "fat people" could possibly be future clientele.

People are going to have opinions. As a distributor for this product,rather than be extremely defensive and lash out, you should share your success story and motivate future consumers. I am of the "fat people" clan whom has used Advocare in the past. I have been thoroughly pleased with my weight loss and improved health.

After marriage and children, I again am using Advocare to assist me in my diet regime.

After a couple of days of taking MNS,I have noticed an increase in energy that has helped me through my workdays and evening workouts. I am not looking for that "over the top" body, I am creating a heathier one.

Motivated you fat cow. No wonder you husband cheats

#479262

sorry Frank, but Missy is right! Its no longer quality its quantity in the food market, look at all the chemicals used to mass produce products and mature them as fast as possible!

so they can get multiple crops or quicken there investment buy getting them to slaughter quicker... and Chris, you are so full of ***! 50 lbs in 17 days? did you copy that from the guy who posted on the body from Vi?

or are you him? dip ***

#479257

Advocare truely changed my life forever! This product is legit!

In order to be the best, you have to use the best! The background, The people who put there names behind the name, speaks volumes! I am still within my 24 day challenge, at day 10 I had lost 7.5 inches and 13.5 lbs! I have been battling back pain for the last 12 years at best a 4 out of 10 the docs said, its the best its gonna get.

8 days into my challenge I was pain free and still pain free!!! I will be forever grateful to Advocare! and the people who got me started! You not only lose weight, shed inches, feel Amazing, but more so, you become Healthy!!

I am a proud user, and distributor of Advocare, and the products ARE for everyone! Your body will thank you! and on a note to the ones being neg. towards our product...

either you are going on hear-say from people who chose not to follow the program, or people who dont have the will power to keep there hands out of the junk food and away from there mouth! or they are the ones buying from places like ebay where all they get is the product and no info on how to use it!

These are the people bad mouthing Advocare people like this, you will fail! and its nobodies fault but your own!!

#460849

I tried the 24 day challenge. I feel great.

Altough I do not have wait to lose, it was a great kick start to a summer work out and I feel much more lean and tone. As for ending up in the hospital due to dehydration?.. the guide clearly tells you that you should being drinking large amounts of water to move the products through your body for best results.

My advisor recommended drinking atleast a half gallon a day. In order to be successful it is necessary to read the directions.

#451649

Advocare works, I lost 10lbs on the 24day challenge and I didn't even exorcize or follow it EVERY day, I totally slipped some cake into it, and I'm not sorry either. My wife did the challenge and she lost 18lbs.

Shes also a type one diabetic. How the *** you got a low blood sugar is beyond me because most diabetics on this system feel the best they've ever felt and have no issues with it. It actually corrected her blood sugar after taking the shakes in the morning, its all about following the diet and snacking healthy and appropriately, rice cakes with some peanut butter were good snacks, preserves instead of jelly. Its not a hard diet you just have to find good alternative foods.

and if you actually incorporate exorcize then you'll lose more...the cheaper route is doing a cleanse, MNS and spark...and if you want to eat *** foods, get the carb plus...there *** works. Try it at least.

#450699

I can't say that the 24 day challenge is good or bad. My husband lost several pounds on the challenge but I had to quit during the cleanse.

I have a HUGE concern with Advocare and cardiology patients. If you have cardiology health problems, PLEASE consult a physician before doing the challenge. I, unfortunately, did not and I regret it. My fault.

It works for some and not for others. If you are in good physical shape, then go for it. It is truly all about healthful changes in diet. The challenge works great for many people because probably before the challenge they were not eating as healthy.

Not all but some. It really makes you aware of healthy changes. But - the same can be said of many highly recommended diet plans like WW where they focus on food awareness and healthy eating (lifestyle)changes that can be sustained.

It is all a personal choice but I can't fully endorse it since I feel you should be getting most of your vitamins and nutrients from your food, i.e. you need to eat better!

Advocare hidden no return policy

I just bought over $450 of product from Advocare, and when disappointed with it, was just told that there is no return. This must by how they make their money -- once you buy a product, they will never give you your money back. My distributor was supposed to tell me...

well there is a guarantee. you can send back UNOPENED products if you're a distributor.

if you're just a retail customer you can get the distributor you bought it from to reimburse you, and THEY can send it back and be reimbursed. so whoever you're talking to is lying or doesn't know what they're talking about

@Jodie like I already said you have the WRONG Advocare because 1 Advocare out of Texas isn't even in Canada its only here in the U.S. Advocare Int. Doesn't even sale beds.!!

#279291

Advocare doesn't even sell hospital beds or medical supplies of any nature for that matter.

#219408

Jodie, you do have the wrong company. The company you posted about is www.advocare.com .

The website you gave is for a company in Canada.....Advocare Intl is in Carrollton, TX.

I didn't mean to imply you did this maliciously, just that you posted under the wrong AdvoCare.

I'm sorry to hear about the problems that you had with that company.

#219272

Carol...yes I do have the right company....his name is Ronald Pocklington and his company is registered under advocarecanada.ca is his web...he is a *** artist ..so be careful

#219271

No Breanna....I dont have the wrong company....he is registered as Advocare and he is a *** artist...Did you read the comments on this page? Check his web site @***.ca ...hes a joke ...I would not be making these comments if it wasnt true

#218399

You know, the company you posted this for is not the medical company? This is a nutritional supplement company and not the medical supply company?

#206441

I think you should let the police know what happened, and tip them off to a possible fraud.

#206357

No I didnt call the police,because I thought they wouldnt take me seriously,, but I may contact the paper ,just because it may help..I did however let CCAC know what had happened, and they now have blackballed him with any kinda business

#206281

Perhaps you should contact The Toronto Star? Did you call the Police?

#206269
