Advocare 24 Day Challenge Meal Plan Ideas

In order to have a successful AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge you need to prepare!  

Preparation is Key!  So this post will help walk you through how to meal prep for the 24 Day Challenge.

There is no right or wrong way I guess I’m just going to show you what I do and what works for me so improvise if you need to!

24 day challenge meal plan ideas

AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge Meal Prep

Step 1.  Decide what meal prep containers to use.  Don’t spend too much time on this.  I went ahead and purchased containers that had 3 sections to keep the food separate and for portion control.

I got them on Amazon:

If your doing the 24 Day Challenge this can be very helpful.

Step 2.  Decide on what foods your going to add to your meal prep containers.  My suggestion is a 3 part container so you can put your protein, complex carbs, and fruit in three separate sections but that’s up to you.

Step 3.  Shop for your healthy food items.  Here is a post on grocery ideas.

Step 4. Prepare your Containers for the week.  I like to do  3-4 days at a time to keep things fresh but you can also do a week.

Step 5. Prepare your snacks and make them easily accessible whether you work at home or in an office make sure and have them handy so when your hungry you have a healthy snack to grab.

advocare 24 day challenge meal prep

Make sure and follow the 24DayChallenge-Daily-Guide for a list of food ideas and what is suggested in terms of portion sizes.

A good rule of thumb is to use a fist size portion for your protein, veggies, and fruit.

Protein:

eggs- either hard boiled or made in a cupcake tin pan with veggies and egg whites

Healthy Nut Butter- put on a piece of whole grain toast or fruit

    The AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge Guide

    in 24 Day Challenge Instructions

    The 24 Day Challenge Guide

    It’s important when starting the challenge to have the guide book or at least have access to the NEW Updated NEW 24 Day Challenge Guide.

    Here is what the 24 Day Challenge Guide will help you with throughout your journey.

    It will give you a daily follow along for what to take, eat, and do throughout each day of the 24 Day Challenge.

    Here is an example of what the AdvoCare guide looks like for days 1-5:

    10 day herbal cleanse phase updated

    So the Challenge Daily Guide helps in a number of ways.

    It not only shows you what you are doing throughout the day but it has a place for check marks for each item done, water intake, and a physical activity fill in at the bottom.

    It’s also helpful in reminding you about snacks which is a big component of the 24 Day Challenge.  You don’t want to go too many hours throughout the day without getting some kind of healthy food in to keep your metabolism going.

    Protein is very important during the 24 Day Challenge and it’s great to get this protein in on all of your meals and snacks if you can.

    Below is the 24 Day challenge water guide and food portions/size recommendations to go by throughout the 24 day challenge.

    For the water recommendations, divide body weight by 2 and that equals how many ounces of water you should consume per day!  It’s very important to get that water in!

    24 day challenge instruction booklet

    Here is a picture of the

    AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge Guide Book the MAX Phase

    24 day challenge instruction guide book

    Again what’s great about this 24 Day Challenge guide book is that is shows you step by step what to take and do throughout the day of this second phase the MAX phase.

    The MAX phase is a 14 day phase of the 24 day challenge that focuses on the MNS system (Metabolic Nutrition System).  This is the fat burning weight loss phase of the overall program.

    The MNS system builds up your metabolism while burning fat and building lean muscle.  You are getting high quality nutrients along with high quality weight loss products all in 14 day strip packs to make it very convenient.

    24 day challenge food guide suggestions

    So I hope this post helped you get a better idea of what is in the guide book and how you use it during the 24 Day Challenge.

      The AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge App

      in 24 Day Challenge Instructions
      24 day challenge iphone app

      The Advocare 24 Day Challenge App Review

       

      Advocare has made it even easier to take The 24 Day Challenge! They have added an app for the iphone and android!

      This is a great way to keep you organized and on top of your daily routine during the 24 day challenge.  Below is a 24 Day Challenge App Review to give you a better understanding of how it works.

      There are a number of screens that walk you through the 24 Day Challenge App that help with portion sizes, food choices, pre and post measurements, product guidance and more.

      The Advocare 24 Day Challenge is a 24 day program designed to take the toxins out of your body and replace your system with high quality nutrition so that your body will function properly and more efficiently.

      When this takes place and your metabolism rises and you gain more energy.  Many people experience weight loss including a lower fat percentage and loss of inches.

      The 24 Day Challenge App Review:

      • When starting the app, it is very important to put in all of your pre challenge measurements which includes pictures of your “before photos” so that you have a starting point to reference.

      Make sure and take accurate measurements so you know exactly where you were at the beginning of your journey. Below is what the pre and post assessment screen looks like on the 24 Day Challenge App

      24 day challenge app

      • Next, you get to choose your product starting place for the 24 days.  Most people start at the cleanse phase which is the first 10 days of the challenge and follow with the MAX Phase which is the following 14 days of the challenge.
      • There is also has a calendar where you can put your start date so you can stay on track with the health program!  This is Very handy!
      • The following screen gives you a list of what products you are taking throughout the challenge so it can keep you straight on when to take your products and what they are for.

      For example, Advocare Spark can be taken in the morning and then again in the afternoon if needed.   So it is important to type in the app which products you are using so you can get notified appropriately.

      24 day challenge app review

      • Keeping track of your water and food intake is easy with this app as well. Not everyone takes the exact same products on the 24 day challenge so it is important to only enter in the products you are taking to get the correct notifications.
      • The portion guide is a great reference in case you forget.
      • The 24 Day Challenge Grocery List will give you some ideas of what foods to get ahead of time to be prepared

      advocare app for iphone

      • Entering your food choices throughout the day can easily be imputed in the breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack screens.

      The great thing about this screen is that you can add items under protein, veggie, complex carbs, fruit, or custom, so you can make sure your getting all of the food throughout the day that is needed to be successful.

      • This screen gives you food suggestions in each food group.  You can also see my Advocare 24 Day Challenge Meal Plan for more suggestions.

      food suggestions app

       

      • If you are doing the Advocare workout series , you can easily enter this in as well.

      You can just click on which dvd workout you finished and your set.  Again in this section you can also enter in other fitness regimens as well including custom workouts.

      •  I also love the community screen where you can connect with other people on the challenge and join or create groups of people to connect with!

      This is a great feature for people who are doing group challenges.  This way everyone that has the app can easily communicate with each other and give each other encouragement and answer questions that may arise

      • You can also assign a coach which is usually your Advocare distributor that you purchased your challenge from.  The coach is able to view you daily logs, posts, and assessment data to make sure your on track.
      • Your friend settings are more optional in terms of what they can or can not see.
      • Last but not least is the post challenge measurements and “after photos”.

      The Advocare 24 Day Challenge App Review:

      I have been following the app during my second 24 Day Challenge and have found it very helpful!  I think for any new person doing the challenge this is a great app and pretty easy to follow.

      You can set the notifications on so you can get pushed updates that pop up to remind you of what to do.

      Click to get the app for iphone or for Android

      *If you’d like to start the 24 Day Challenge feel free and email, contact me, or click below.  I can help you through the app and also set you up with my 24 day email coaching series as well.

      I am available at all times to answer any questions that may arise and help you with a custom meal plan to get you going.
