I started off 2019 hoping for a boost toward my health and wellness goals, and decided to turn to my old friend Advocare for help. I first used Advocare products in 2013 and have used their 10 day Herbal Cleanse 3-4 times, each time with positive results. I chose the Advocare Herbal Cleanse not just out of familiarity, but also because it’s inexpensive and allows you to live without TOO MANY restrictions.
If you order the Herbal Cleanse, you receive a 2 small bottles within the Herbal Cleanse box that includes the probiotic restore capsules and the herbal cleanse tablets. You also receive a box of 10 packs of Fiber mix as a part of the cleanse. The directions are simple for each product. You take 2 restore capsules every morning 30 minutes before breakfast and 2 herbal cleanse tablets at night 30 minutes before bed with a full glass of water. The fiber is to be mixed and drank with 8 oz of water. I will go ahead and tell you that the Fiber is the one thing people have trouble getting past with the Herbal Cleanse. It’s powdery and hard to choke down. Never fear, I have a trick that totally helps! The key is to buy some orange flavored Advocare Spark. Spark is their energy mix – I’m a long time user of it as well. If you mix your fiber drink in water with orange spark it tastes like orange juice with pulp, which is totally tolerable!
I used this guide as somewhat of a checklist while being on the Herbal Cleanse. Like I said earlier, the cleanse is not super restrictive in what you cannot have. They just want you to make smart healthy choices in your diet. You can have lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, and complex carbs. They want you to limit or avoid soda, alcohol, creamy sauces, sugar, candy, fried food, processed food, and white flour. The last page of this guide mentions several examples of what you can have under the categories of protein, vegetables, complex carbs, and snacks.
Having used the Herbal Cleanse before, I felt prepared and knew what to expect going into it this time around. The first night after taking the Herbal Cleanse tablets I did have a slight stomach ache, but I hadn’t drank much water with the tablets. I had no other issues after that first night and drank a full glass of H20 when taking any of the supplements. I ate clean for the duration of the cleanse except for 2 meals in the 10 days. One of my favorite clean meals to make at home is the Turkey Chili I posted on my instagram account with the recipe. As long as you plan ahead, it really isn’t that difficult to stay on track with your diet for only 10 days.
Again, I was pleased with my results at the end of the cleanse! I lost 4.6 pounds but really I just felt better. I felt less “fluffy” and bloated and was able to main good energy levels all throughout the day. I didn’t take measurements but I did take before and after photos I will share below!
Advocare is sold by individual distributors. I purchased mine from my friend Ashly, owner of The Balanced Prep! If you aren’t an Advocare Customer, you can use this link to help you get started. If you become a preferred customer you can get up to 20% off of your order! I mentioned that the Herbal Cleanse is inexpensive, it retails for $38.95 preferred customer price of $31.16. If you buy the Spark as I suggested (TRUST!) that costs $24.99 or $19.99 for preferred customers. Spark is a great alternative for morning coffee, if you’re looking for one! If you are a preferred customer, you can get the Cleanse and Spark for $50. It’s recommended that you do the Herbal Cleanse every 3 months to reset your system. I got the results I had hoped for using the 10 Day Herbal Cleanse and I’m sure I will do it again in the future. If you’re looking for something to help jump start your journey to accomplish your goals, I highly recommend the Advocare 10 Day Herbal Cleanse!
