Advocare - Weight Loss Pills Review

Buying advocare was the most expensive dieting "attempt" I've ever encountered. While I agree your success has everything to do with each person and how they follow the system... I also have no idea how a person is supposed to seriously take so many pills in one day. Your not hungry because after you take all the pills, your so nauseous that food doesn't even sound half way good. I lost weight on it. But I also wasn't eating either because I felt so sick. Deffinately not something I'd recommend to anyone I know.

The only complaint I have is the information available through some of the distributors. For example, I received my challenge and followed the little booklet...

which is not completely accurate. I have a friend that got me started on this and I turned to him with my questions... boy was I surprised. Here's the scoop: You have to eat every 2-3 hours meaning the snacks are important.

Fruits, Nuts, Vegetables are perfect for this. If you do as I did.. which was attempt to drink all of the water, take all of the pills there was no room for food. LOL --- Your body needs to be "trained" to eat correctly.

If you skip all your meals your metabolism never starts. The pills help jump start your metabolism but that is taking the "food" into consideration. My advise, to eliminate not feeling well, drink your water slower, make sure you eat all 3 meals plus snacks in between. Personally, as long as I am eating several times, I feel invigorated and I've also realized my normal aches and pains have been alleviated.

That said, you do not have to do the Spark if you don't want to.

It is PERFECT when you are feeling sluggish and need a boost of energy. Eliminating this will definitely make more room for food :-) Don't give up.

If you take the products correctly, they most certainly do work. Too bad no one offered you guidance so you could have had better results

Advocare is just another gimmick. Any plan will work if you stick to it. Best plan to use is VERY simple and FREE... "EAT LESS AND MOVE MORE". I was convinced to not only buy the product but to spend $2100 to become an advisor. I was promised to get help unloading the...

Eating less shuts down your metabolism and yes u will lose weight when u eat less, but you will gain weight the second you start eating a normal amount. Your body deserves good nutrition.

2100 investment to reach a 40% discount level and you have that discount for life. My life was changed by Advocare and I have helped over 40 other people.

The products work if you use them correctly. I am so sorry you had a negative experience with this company because it has truly changed my family's life

Ineffective Product Review

I am an advanced athlete of 34 years and 48 years old. I used the arginine extreme and bio charge to evaluate it and compair it to my supplements of choice. For the two weeks that I used the products I made recordable gains in my strength training and mostly in my endurance training. I am not an Advocare affiliate. I would however endorse the product in the elite line.

please people, stop laying and saying their isn't sugar in spark. Listed on the canister (I have one right here) under "other ingredients" is SUCRALOSE which is known as SPLENDA.

Which isn't good for the body either . The only sugar that's good for the body, is natural that comes from fruits.

Waste of $280 or bucks as you call them. If you are going to post a review as a consumer, the least you could do is be clear and concise.

How about putting supporting information for other consumers that are clearly on this site to read helpful reviews, not half-*** reviews. Did you work out on a regular basis (typically 3-5 times per week)? Did you eat healthy during your supplement stacking, or did you continue to eat McDonald's and Burger King everyday? Did you take the supplements as directed as well as water intake?

These are the things you should post but I do appreciate the suggested flavors that everyone knows and likes so much.

P.S. If you spend $280 on a gym membership and trainer you still have to quit eating McDonald's everyday. Plus your still wasting your money. Go to YouTube and search HIIT training.

HIIT, along with a simple push/pull workout regimen, will go a long way. This will help you lose weight quickly along with healthy dieting. Supplements are only a short-term fix for weight loss.

A healthy lifestyle and eating habits are what really work in the long run. Just trying to help out.

Awful Return Policy | Advocare review

I became a distributor of Advocare several months ago to use a 20% discount and purchase their Spark and MNS products. To save on shipping costs I ordered a few months worth of product and contacted Advocare care to see if I could exchange or return unused product which was not working. The only way to return any product is first if it is unopened and second to send a notarized resignation of your distributorship. You do have the option to do a ONE TIME exchange for something which IS NOT OPENED. Completely unacceptable for product this expensive indicating they do not stand behind their product line. I will be submitting my resignation today.

It's not necessarily that you aren't doing something right. But first...GET OFF THE SCALE!

You're only supposed to be on that scale 3 times. Day 1, Day 11, and Day 25. DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT weigh yourself in between. I did and I cried and cried when I hadn't lost any weight.

BUT...if you did your measurements and took your pictures on Day 1, then when you take your measurements and pictures on Days 11 and 25, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Part of this also depends on how much weight you have to lose? If you're already active and looking to lose those last 10 lbs, you won't lose much. BUT, if you're very overweight, you may lose more pounds or inches than a much smaller person.

I lost like 9 inches, but only 8 lbs on my challenge, following it to the letter.

I had an experience with a distributor who didn't return an email on my request for more information and wanted to charge me $240 for the 24 day cleanse when it's listed for much less than that on the website. She claimed her "14 spots for the 24 day challenge were filled and paid for". Maybe point your distributors in the direction of a business class or two, especially if this is a "career" for them. I expect more from a company like this. I would much prefer to purchase this from a retail location instead of having to trust another distributor.

The standard 24 day challenge is much less than $240...and it does include the cleanse in that bundle...however...challenges can get up to $240 if you purches the extras (catalyst, thermoplus, extra shakes, etc) your distributor may have done this to you and did not inform you. Which is not the right thing to do...and they should also be in touch with you every few days to be sure you are having success.

Everyone's body is different and sometimes you have to change something throughout the 24 days. I hope you aren't too discouraged and are now getting the help and answers you need.

If not you are welcome to email me teamsaettel.advocare@yahoo.com I will help in any way I can...even if you need in touch with our home office. Best of luck!

Just so you know if you didnt get your email approved by advocare you are in violation of your distributor agreement.

Actually there is a 10 day cleanse that retails for about $35 and then the 24 day challenge. Maybe get your facts straight before assuming your distributor is scamming you....

I'm so sorry to hear of your experience. There is no way the 24 Day Challenge should be that much.

As a distributor myself, I make sure to attend classes, ask my mentors questions, and relate to what the consumer would need instead of making them feel like I'm just trying to sell a product. Advocare, if sold the proper way has steps you can take whether you want to be a regular customer, become a discounted customer, or be a distributor. No one should EVER pay over the price posted by Advocare itself. In order to get the discounted prices you must have paid into the company but that's only if you really love the products or want you sell it.

It makes me so mad when people take advantage of others to make a Buck.

I work under some of the best mentors and highest ranking Distributors and we have weekly meetings and attend any training we can for the company. I wish everyone took it as serious as our team but sadly they don't. I bet in your case, the girl selling bought a bunch and tried to package it with some plan for recipes or something to make it seem legit but we have special groups we add you to after you purchase and there are recipes, people to cheer you on, snack ideas, and general facts and tips.

I sure hope one day you will give it a second chance with someone else because it's a fantastic company if not should by someone else's stupidity. I'm so sorry you had this experience.

If you aren't going to commit to the lifestyle change of getting healthy why begin? I know personally this saved my life. It's even endorsed by all of my doctors at the MAYO CLINIC which is one of the most elite teams in the world for medical care. For the first time in 31 years I feel like I am living instead of just surviving. I'm no longer in medications to survive. I've lost 27 lbs in just 2 months! It works. There will always be critiques and critical bad remarks. Some people may nt get results because of wrong product, not committing fully. You have to have to have to change your bad habits! I went off advocare 1 month and didn't gain the weight back. Because I kept the lifestyle. But I felt icky because I need to vitamins. So, think about one thing. Try it and committ. Get with the good head advisors. Not just a distributor. See for yourself. If your gonna become a distributor you will see it is like a family! Love advocare and te advocare people!

This makes me so happy to hear! I'm a distributor and I'm seeing a bunch of negative comments on here but I feel it's the distributors not backing their customer's needs.

I'm so happy to be a part of this team and I try to reach out to as many people as I can asking the way. Thank you for the positivity.

That's because this website is here to illicit bad reviews. Advocare is a great company with great products.

I have made a huge change in my lifestyle and how I feel since starting products 2 months ago.. Love Advocare and what it has done for me, AND what is going to do for me and my family in the future.

Maybe your just jealous because somebody doing something to help people . It's not about the money I been on this 24 day challege and lost 10 pounds and still on it .i have 15 more pounds to go its been a little over s month and I don't crave sweets or junk anymore .

I am a advisor and now a distributor . And you know what . I give out free sparks to my co workers especially when we are on the night shift . I am not in for the money believe me I love my job .

And do well at my job and if i didn't I would quit 30 years ago .. I want my co workers to get Heath and off the soda and junk foods . And my kids are eating heather now too . And if it wasn't for one of my daughter picky about do the challeges I would never done it .

Some people have to be steer in the Right direction ..

and me myself would never try and sell something that don't work .. That why I could never be a car sales man lol ps everybody not in for the money ok ..
