    Advocare Supplements

    Just curious if there are any Advocare junkies out there? My brother-in-law got me started on Spark energy drink, and by drinking spark I've consumed a heck of a lot less pop. The only real turn-off is the modified multi-level marketing scheme which is a huge turn-off.

    I know that their performance supplements are used by a lot of big-time teams like my Titans and apparently the Oklahoma football team uses them.

    Just looking for any insight into Advocare, thanks in advance.

    Re: Advocare Supplements

    I used to take Spark. Liked it, but at times felt a little weak and dehydrated. But probably becuase I wasn't consuming enough water along with it.
    I haven't taken anything else by them, but have a few friends that take their performance products. They seem to like them.

    Re: Advocare Supplements

    It's good stuff, but the marketing is irritating. I was a distributor for quite a while, but did it just to buy things, not really to distribute.

    Re: Advocare Supplements

    My fiancee and I did the 24 day challenge starting in February. I lost 18 pounds during that challenge and she lost 9. We have kept it off. We are eating healthier since then. The only thing I still use is the Meal Replacement Shakes. She still uses Spark. I became a distributor just to get a discount on those items. I'd be happy to answer any questions about it.

    Re: Advocare Supplements

    My mom was into the whole Advocare thing when I was in elementary school. I was on a competitive gymnastics team, and my mom had me use Spark, and it seemed to help me focus my energy in spite of my skepticism.

    Keep in mind, that is a testimony from me in elementary school 10 or 12 years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if the placebo effect was what was really going on, either.
