AdvoCare Max Phase (Group) / Day 11

on May 20, 2015

May 21st / Day 11 / Let the MAX PHASE begin!
Oh but WAIT…have you re-weighed and measured yet?
I have felt fantastic, full of energy and motivated to keep going but I ain’t gonna lie I was a lil’ bit disappointed when I stepped on the scales to discover I’d only lost 3 OUNCES! Hold up, I’m NOT done yet—-I remeasured and to my SURPRISE I’d lost INCHES (woooooohoooooo) I lost a total of 4″ (cumulative of all areas measured with 1 1/4″ being off my waist!) I told ya’ll my clothes felt better ❤

Now, as soon as you’ve written down all your number…store those scales in the closet and pretend they are broken! Then go have you SPARK! (This is my faaaaavorite time of day) and take your first MNS pack (w/ optional Catalyst/3 and ThermoPlus/1).
Within 30 minutes go ahead and mix up that shake for breakfast (ok, so you don’t HAVE to drink you shake for breakfast, you can drink it for whatever meal works best for YOU)
My first day of the Max Phase did NOT go as I wanted to simply because I had a 1st grade field trip w/ a cookout at the park (not just a bust on the eating but it was COLD and I like to have froze too death lol)

BREAKFAST: MRS (Meal Replacement Shake – Mix w/ 8 oz of almond milk or water for LESS calories and feel free to add a couple frozen strawberries, ¼ banana and 1 tsp PB or ¼ c frozen berries of choice) WITH YOUR 2 “WITH MEAL” MNS PACKS (you can split these two up into separate meals but I prefer to go ahead and get those outta the way all at once)
**30 minutes BEFORE LUNCH you need to take your last MNS pack
SNACK: Oatmeal Cups/2 (PIN chocolate covered katie)
LUNCH: 2 Turkey hotdogs (no bun), large spoon of slaw (⅓ c?) and handful of Sun Chips :/
SNACK: Piece of grilled chicken w/ slice of tomato wrapped in large leaf lettuce
**I will generally have a 2nd SPARK! on my way to get the kids from school, this is a great time to consider taking more Catalyst/3 and ThermoPlus/1
DINNER: Spaghetti w/ homemade sauce, turkey meat and GF noodles

Let’s talk a lil’ bit about these optional add-ons.
Catalyst is an Amino Acid Supplement (you get amino acids from your protein sources). It’s a blend of essential branched-chain amino acids and L-glutamine that supplies your body with muscle-building components and sustains your muscles during exercise and reduced calorie intake.* Whether you’re trying to lose weight or gain muscle, Catalyst helps repair and protect muscles.* And it works great in conjunction with other AdvoCare® products like Spark™ Energy Drink and one of the Metabolic Nutrition Systems (MNS®). Other amino acids in Catalyst like L-arginine, taurine and betaine help fuel and maintain your muscles to support endurance and strength.* Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, Catalyst helps you retain muscle and reduce fat for a more toned and better defined look.*Helps maintain muscle mass during exercise & weight management* Aids in preserving muscle and energy levels during times of calorie restriction* Helps repair & protect muscle tissue* I have found the added bonus with Catalyst is reducing signs of cellulite and adding a lil’ boost of energy (not the kind that makes ya wanna run around the yard but just enough to help keep you going and not get draggy). AND the best thing I’ve discovered about it is it works great for curbing an evening sweet tooth…I kid you not! You can basically take Catalyst as many times as you want but I take 3 whenever I have a SPARK! and/or if I get a sweet tooth in the evenings that brushing my teeth won’t cure 😉

ThermoPlus is an awesome metabolism booster! ThermoPlus® supplement is an innovative weight-loss enhancer that contains key botanical extracts to help support efficient metabolism and suppress appetite.* Together, they provide powerful support for stimulating fat oxidation and healthy metabolism when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.* Use it with a Metabolic Nutrition System (MNS®)for enhanced results.* Supports the body’s ability to convert fat into energy* Promotes a healthy metabolism* Contains oolong tea and sage extracts to support weight loss* Works great in conjunction with the AdvoCare® Metabolic Nutrition Systems (MNS®)* You can take up to 3 of these each day HOWEVER, when I first started on ThermoPlus I took 3 at one time…I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS! It made me feel awful! I suggest that you start with taking ONE before breakfast for a couple of days. Then add in ONE before lunch for a few days. If that seems to go okay then try taking TWO with your before breakfast SPARK! I truly do not feel that anyone NEEDS a third Thermo added but if after takng them a couple of weeks you still feel you need some extra boosting add in a third (but not all 3 at once). When you first start these you can literally feel your body “heat up” once your metabolism starts kicking, it’s actually very invigorating lol~
