Day in the life: AdvoCare max phase {details + eats}

Max phase is the last 14 days of the 24 day AdvoCare challenge. And each day is the same in terms of what you should be eating and what supplements you take.

The max phase supplement is the MNS 3 –> from the AdvoCare website:

MNS™ 3 is our most comprehensive system. Not only will you benefit from appetite control, you will also receive the best core nutrition as we have added CardioQ, Calcium Plus and an additional OmegaPlex® to this system.* MNS™ 3 offers sustained-release energy, which means energy that will last throughout the day.* And with less than half the caffeine of MNS™ E and MNS™ C, it’s a fantastic alternative for anyone looking for a lower-caffeine MNS™ system.* For energy, appetite control and overall outstanding core nutrition and wellness, MNS™ 3 is your answer.*

Basically, it is a great support of the nutrition you are putting in your body with clean eating, and helps to make sure that your body is running on all cylinders.

I love it because it helps me control my appetite, gives me a TON of energy and helps me increase my athletic performance. I notice that I don’t have that afternoon energy slump. I am not thinking about raiding the vending machine or the fridge at home. I can lift heavier weights in bodypump and have a faster pace when running. Seriously, what’s not to love, right?

Anyway, I know that the AdvoCare challenge can sound overwhelming, so I wanted to share a typical day of the max phase with you to see what it exactly entails – pills + food + snacks + workout.

Here is a typical (for me) max phase day of eats and pills ..  .

Not too earth shattering, right? That’s what I like about it. Good, clean food that makes me feel better and top of the line supplements to help support my body.

I am on the last week of my 24 day challenge, but if you are interested in doing a challenge, we have another group challenge coming up in November.

And you guys, this one is amazing timing – you start AFTER Halloween and end BEFORE Thanksgiving. <—if you have been thinking about doing a challenge, now is the time.

You won’t regret it, I promise (AND AdvoCare has a money back guarantee), so seriously, do it. Smile 

Email me (running4cupcakes@gmail.com) for details or questions.

And last AdvoCare thing. . . they just released this:

  1. That chicken salad looks awesome. I love the idea of doing a challenge like this, especially since my pants are a liiiiittle tight these days haha. I don’t know about all the pills, though, stuff like that tends to make me super jittery. The pre-Thanksgiving deal sounds pretty good, though. I may email you about some pricing questions!

    • I wasn’t sure about all the pills when Katie convinced me to do this, but they aren’t that bad. I don’t get jittery from them or nauseous (which happens to me sometimes with vitamins). I suck at swallowing pills, so I take them very slowly with a lot of water. It’s definitely helped my energy level a lot. If you are thinking about it, I would say go for it!

        Agreed – the pills aren’t the most fun but totally ok and tolerable. Can’t wait to hear your full 24 day recap!

    • KT

      The only thing I can tell you about all the pills is that I hate taking pills and if I can do it, anyone can. I’ll email you some details!

  2. If you can take that many pills, anyone can! I know how you feel about those things 😉 And yes, this one IS perfect timing… My Pumpkin Spice MRS comes tomorrow and I cannot wait to try it!
