Which AdvoCare MNS should you take?  There are 3 different MNS (metabolic nutrition systems) that all offer different function depending on what your looking for.

The MNS MAX 3 as stated above is primarily more for both energy and appetite control.  It also has less caffeine for those people who may be sensitive to caffeine.

Can you combine mns 3 with thermoplus? I am trying to loss 30 pounds .

Tabatha Rutledge - November 20, 2017

I sometimes forget to take the packet 30 mins before lunch…im wondering if it is okay to take it with supper occasionally in the in case that I do forget.

Joey - June 17, 2017

I took all of the packets at once cause I forgot to take them when said to, is this ok???

Barb - May 15, 2017

I am taking MSN3, the 1st packet before breakfast, is there caffeine in these pills?

Elizabeth - March 13, 2017

I was supposed to start my MNS 3 tomorrow, but just found out I am pregnant. I need to lose weight so bad, and was wondering what is safe to take whole pregnant?? I’ll obviously clear it all with my OBGYN, but what is a no go per advocare?

jonathan - October 5, 2016

Tomorrow is day 10 for me and then on to the max phase. So far so good. Before Advocare as part of my morning I was taking:
-Fish Oil
-B12 pill
-Vitamin C
-Garden of Life Alkalizer & Detoxifier

I guess I wanted to know if I am overdoing it with what’s already in MNS 3, or if I should stop taking my daily vitamins. Or continue what I was doing prior to doing Advocare?

    Joanna Bostwick - October 5, 2016

    @Jonathan-If your doing MNS don’t take all the other supplements because you will be taking too much. MNS is really all you need for the day. A lot of the stuff you were taking are already in MNS. Hope that helps!

Stephanie - April 27, 2016

I am on the Max phase of the 24 day challenge. On your website I noticed that the white packet is the omegaplex. In the booklet it says to take omegaplex with dinner. Am I taking too much? Or do I just take the ones in the packet? I also realized that it says to take the color packs with breakfast but the booklet says to take both with lunch. Am I doing something wrong?

    Joanna Bostwick - April 28, 2016

    The OmegaPlex is taken with Dinner and during the day during the MAX phase. One color packet is before breakfast and the other color packet is before lunch. Take both white packets with a meal or lunch. Hope that helps!

Ashley - February 21, 2016

I tried MNS 3 last year and really liked the results but it upset my stomach really, really bad. Do you have any other suggestions of what I should try (c or e) or what I could leave out from the pill strips that upsets stomachs?

    Joanna Bostwick - February 22, 2016

    @Ashley-the supplements you take on an empty stomach 30 min prior to food you can move up to 15 min prior, if that doesn’t help go to 10 and so on. If none of those work try taking with food.

    Anita - June 1, 2017

    So I am currently taking these and I believe that the green pills are what upsets the stomach as well as my coworker who also has the same issue. What works for me is to make sure food is on my stomach at least 30 minutes prior to taking the pill that states that it should be taken with breakfast or lunch.

Ford - January 5, 2016

Can I take my MSN Max3 and the 10-day cleanse? Or will they not help eachother?

    Joanna Bostwick - January 5, 2016

    @Ford-MNS MAX is the second half of the challenge the first 10 days is the cleanse so you would do Cleanse then MNS phase but not at the same time. Cleanse gets your body ready to absorb all of the vitamins and nutrition in MNS.

Jo - January 1, 2016

I only lost 2 pounds 2 inches around waist on this challenge. Really upset & disappointed. I do hour & half of cardio each morning, hard cardio! Then I do hard/fast interval weight training for 2 hours every other night.
My diet is very very healthy, lots of greens & absolutely no sugar. I wanted to lose atleast 10 pounds & atleast 3 more inches around waist, & 3 around thighs.

    Joanna Bostwick - January 2, 2016

    @Jo-Sorry you were disappointed. This is why it’s really important to have a coach helping you along the way. There are a number of things that can be tweaked to help you have better success depending on your body, foods you eat, water intake, etc.. Not everyone loses weight. Some people add more muscle which changes the way your body looks even though the scale may not go down a lot. 2 inches around your waist could be great depending on your current body composition. There are also some add on products that may have benefited you. Remember this is a jumpstart to a healthier you and a lifestyle change not a “diet” for 24 days.

vicky lopez - December 13, 2015

Have high blood pressure can I take MNS 3

Jana - December 10, 2015

I am seeing that OmegaPlex is in the MNS packets and the guide is saying to take OmegaPlex during dinner. Do I take OmegaPlex twice (at lunch and at dinner)

Betty - November 18, 2015

My strip packet does not mach the picture on this page? I do have msn 3

    Joanna Bostwick - November 18, 2015

    @Betty- I changed the photo-CardioQ was added and AmplifyT was taken out. You can see new picture under the post you referenced.

Betty - November 18, 2015

There are 4 in the strip
It’s confusing
Take the first 2 in the strip then the 2 white at lunch?
Can take the thermcare any time?
After 24 what diet do I follow?

    Joanna Bostwick - November 18, 2015

    @Betty-On the packets it tells when to take the MNS. Take color packet 30 min before breakfast and one 30 min before lunch (doesnt matter which one). Take both white packets with a meal preferably breakfast or lunch or one at each.

Vicki Hernandez - October 13, 2015

I am currently on the MNS-3. I am seeing good results and feel good! Do you have some suggestions for which supplements to continue taking after the 14 day packets are gone?

Thank you!

Roquel - September 29, 2015

My baby is now 13 months old and I’m still nursing her at night but am desperate to lose 10 to 15 pounds before then end if October. Which products do you suggest I try? I was told it’s safe to use the msn3.. I need to know what to purchase for maximum results!

    Joanna Bostwick - September 29, 2015

    @Roquel- Here is the recommended nursing products.
    But-you can take the product sheet to your doctor and ask if the MNS would be ok for you. Also- from whats listed I would start with Spark, Catalyst, and meal replacement shakes. All three products are amazing and do help with weight loss! If your eating right and working out plus using those products 10-15 pounds is very doable! You can purchase here.

Stephanie Rye - September 4, 2015

I’m on my 11th day & already lost 6 pounds.. Going by the book & changed all my eating to 6 meals a day! I also lost inches around my hips & thighs … I feel amazing im also doing 30minutes a day cardio ….

Alyssa - August 12, 2015

I started the 24 day challenge. I only got to day 6 because I got sick an i never started back up. This was 3 weeks an 2 days ago when I stopped. I have enough cleanse to start completely over with the challenge from beginning. Is it ok to do that? Or what should I do?

Carole - August 8, 2015

I truly enjoyed reading all the comments and your feedback. I didn’t really lose any weight on the cleanse and am just starting the MSN3 phase. I am praying I’ll lose some. I have a good 30 lbs to lose… :-(
I may also continue with the MNS3 once I’m finished with this one.

    Joanna Bostwick - August 9, 2015

    @Carol- Thanks for coming to my blog! I’m glad you enjoy it. The cleanse is really not designed for weight loss BUT many people do lose weight due to the cleanse products, eating healthy, and adding lots of water. MNS3 phase is more of the weight loss phase. Don’t get discouraged about the 30 lbs. You can do this!! Continuing with MNS is a great idea.

Jill - July 30, 2015

I am half way through my challenge and 8lbs down, I want to continue to lose weight after the challenge. Should I keep up with the MNS 3, or can I supplement some of these with generic brands and keep up with the diet and either thermoplus or catalyst?

    Joanna Bostwick - July 30, 2015

    @Jill- Great job down 8lbs! I would continue on MNS 3. I would not try generic brands they just dont have the same quality. There were numerous reports out lately about how many of the generic vitamins don’t even have what the bottle says in them so it’s not worth it to even try. It all depends how much more weight you would like to lose. The person you bought the challenge from should be coaching you through.

Amanda - June 23, 2015

Do most people loose the weight in the cleanse or max phase

    Joanna Bostwick - June 23, 2015

    @Amanda- it just depends. I would say MAX phase but there are some people who lose a lot during the cleanse as well. The 2 week MAX phase is designed for weight loss though. The cleanse phase gets your body ready to lose the weight. If possible, it’s best to do them both!

Caren Goodwin - April 29, 2015

Hi Joanna , I’m just beginning my 12th day and feel confused about exactly when to take these packets!! Also, is coffee allowed after the cleanse period? And is yogurt, cheese and such Ok?

    Joanna Bostwick - April 30, 2015

    @Caren- hi! The MAX phase can be a little confusing but what you are going to do is follow the packets on when to take what.
    This post will walk you through that:

    To clarify- Color packets are before breakfast and before lunch, white packets are during breakfast and lunch
    Coffee is now allowed in moderation and dairy is now allowed during MNS Max phase.

Rachel - April 1, 2015

We’re a large day hab center in NJ. We would like to open a wholesale account with you guys. We think the products will do great!! Please get back to me at your earliest convenience.

Thanks Much,
Waiting to hear from you:)

Joanna - March 9, 2015

which product/pill has the caffeine in the MNS packet? can it be skipped? I have sensitivity to caffeine and might get heart palpitations. Please advise.

    Joanna Bostwick - March 9, 2015

    First I would say make sure and check with your doctor about taking the MNS. But the supplements you would need to remove is the ActoTherm SR which is the 1 darker pill in the first strip for before Breakfast. The second 2 would be the BioTherm which is in the second strip before lunch and its the 2 darker brown caplets. Hope that helps!

Jenny Stous - October 20, 2014

Do I have to take both white packs at the same meal or can I separate them?

Gina - October 14, 2014

This stuff is amazing. My husband and I completed the 24 Day Challenge and are continuing with the MNS 3. I have lost 20 pounds (so far) and my husband is down 32. We take them every other day now because they are a little spendy. But so worth it. We have never felt better!! And we are continuing to lose.

    Joanna Bostwick - October 14, 2014

    Great to hear!! It’s a great product and it’s so nice to hear from so many people who are having incredible reaults! Keep up the good work! Joanna

Sher O'Neill - October 8, 2014

Is max e or mns 3 better for weight loss?

    Joanna Bostwick - October 8, 2014

    They are both great for weight loss. Max E is more for energy and Max 3 is for both energy and appetite control. If you have never used MNS I always suggest starting with the MAX 3.

Jessica - September 27, 2014

Hi, I’m on day 13 of the challenge and am also trying to get pregnant. What about MNS is not ok? Should I stop taking them?

bruce Jones - September 8, 2014


    Joanna Bostwick - September 9, 2014

    Bruce-Thanks for stopping by. There are 5 people on my team that have lost over 100 each. NOT in 24 days of course but for each of them their weight loss started with the 24 Day Challenge. All I can say is the average weight loss is 10-15 lbs during the 24 Day Challenge. Thanks-Joanna

      jake graham - April 17, 2015

      I personally lost 50 pounds while on the 24 dsy challenge. It was alot but i had alot of excess weight. I folled the book to the last detail ate everything it recomended and had great results.

roxy - August 27, 2014

can you do another box of mns3 after your done with the 24 day challenge if you want to continue loosing weight? I lost 10 pounds and want to lose 20 more.

    Joanna Bostwick - August 27, 2014

    Roxy-Yes you can. A lot of people continue on the MNS after the 24 days until they reach their goal weight. There is no problem with that.

sonia - May 13, 2014

Can you combine the MNS MAX E and the MNS MAX 3?

    Joanna Bostwick - May 13, 2014

    Sonia- I assume you mean take them both at the same time? No you can not. They have some of the same products in them but the MNS MAX E has products for more energy and Max 3 has products for both energy and appetite suppressant. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Chelsi - May 9, 2014

Thank you so much for this break down! I am currently on the 24 Day Challenge, and I was curious to know what each pill was, as well as a description of each. This was very helpful!
