New Year New You AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge / Max Phase / Day 21

on January 26, 2015

Sunday’s are just such busy days that I don’t worry too much about trying to prepare fresh…it’s more of a “free for all” or “take care of yourself” kinda day 🙂 Hubby and lil’ princess took off to VA so me and the boy headed out for a movie…meaning there are no donut treats for tomorrow but I will be making them sometimes in the next few days (gotta be able to tell ya how to cook them in the oven rather than stovetop) 😉

Day 21 / Max Phase
Spark + Before breakfast pack (+Catalyst +Thermoplus opt)
BREAKFAST: Meal Replacement Shake (Chocolate w/ 1/2 tsp PB)
**I TAKE BOTH OF MY “WITH MEAL” PACKS AT BREAKFAST (But you can split them between two meals or both at either)
SNACK: KIND bar (between services)
**30 MINS BEFORE LUNCH CONSUME YOUR LAST PACK
LUNCH: “Big” salad (grilled chicken, boiled eggs, broccoli, tomatoes, cucumber, almond slivers & bacon bits)
SNACK: Almonds, apple and organic cheese stick
DINNER: Left-overs
**IF YOU HAVE OMEGAS LEFT YOU CAN TAKE 2 W/ DINNER but this is not a must

Studies show restricting carb intake can:
– Reduce body fat more than calorie-restricted low-fat diets
– Lower blood pressure dramatically
– Lower blood sugar and improve symptoms of diabetes much more than low-fat diets, which also helps you burn more fat
– Increase your good cholesterol (HDL)
– Lower triglycerides significantly more than low-fat diets
However, there can be a DARK side to low carb dieting. Whenever you lower carbs in your diet for more than 5 to 7 days at a time, it can lead to a downward spiral of metabolic problems including:
– Suppressed thyroid output (inefficient conversion of T4 to T3)
– Decreased testosterone production (women need this to burn fat too!)
– Compromised immune system function
– Slower metabolism and adrenal fatigue
– Muscle loss
– Slower fat burning and weight loss plateaus
– Leptin resistance (50% LESS fat burning hormone production)
Ya, pretty much everything you want to avoid.
And every one of these negatives side effects can be even MORE damaging if you exercise intensely 4 or 5 days of the week.

So even though lowering carbs can be a lethal weapon in your fight against fat, you have to be careful and use low carb diets in “smartest” way possible.
