Emily's Favorite Advocare Weight Loss Products

(Refer to my Advocare Website for more Info: www.joinemily.com)

Catalyst is one of my Advocare Products because helps me retain muscle and reduce fat for a more toned and better defined physique. These pictures were taken 24 Days apart. You'll notice that it only took 24 Days to “chisel, cut, and tone” my physique: That's why Catalyst has earned the nickname of “Butt-Be-Gone-Gut-Be-Gone.” I thank Catalyst for the transformation in my muscle tone from Day 1 to Day 24. I also was very thankful for Thermoplus because I was unable to workout during my initial weight loss quest because of my Scoliosis. Thermopolus burns fat calories! I took it 30 minutes before my main 3 meals, and it burned about 900 calories per day. (It just heats up your intestines to burn calories, so there are no cardiovascular side effects). Go to www.joinemily.com to see these products or to order product. Rest assured that I will provide you with excellent customer service. I will give you individualized help and support with your Advocare Products. Questions? Call me at (509) 910-5972.

Why use Advocare Cleanse?

Advocare's 10 Day Cleanse is "Gentle & Uneventful" but Effective!It is the 1st 10 day phase of the "24 Day Challenge." (see my before/after picture at the top of this page) The 24 Day Challenge is a "Metabolic Reset Button!" For more info, go to www.joinemily.com

WHY ADVOCARE'S CLEANSE? Most cleanses only target your colon, but your liver and kidneys are also your “toxin filters.” It’s kind of like the “lint trap” in your clothes dryer. When you clear your lint trap off, the little holes in the “screen” of the lint trap are cleared so the heat can go through the lint trap and dry your clothes. Metabolism is heat. That heat (metabolism) is more effective at metabolizing (burning) fat once your organs get cleansed.

The 3 Components of Advocare's Herbal Cleanse Box
1. Fiber Drink: is like taking the”lint off the lint trap” after every load of laundry! It gently cleanses, allowing heat to transfer so your metabolism is raised, which is necessary to burn fat!
2. Herbal Cleanse Tablets: is like an “S.O.S.” pad - more deeply cleansing the intestines and colon.
3. Probiotic: Probiotics are good bacteria, these are the highest quality on the market – formulated to survive through the hostile environment of the low PH/high acidic stomach, so it can make it safely to the large & small intestines where it needs to be to kill the bad bacteria. Probiotics metabolize toxins & carry them out of your system! Probiotics also metabolize vitamins for your body!

Your "Carb Bucket"

We all have a "Carb Bucket!" In order to avoid storing our carbohydrates as fat, we need to make sure we keep our carb intake under a certain amount at each meal/snack. Let me explain why: When we eat carbohydrates, our bodies break the carbohydrates down into little sugar molecules and break them down into our bloodstream. As we increase the amount of carbohydrates we eat at "one sitting," our blood sugar levels increase for the next few hours. If a blood vessel becomes crowded with sugar molecules, the blood vessel wall will be damaged. As a "protective defense" against this "overcrowding," our bodies release a hormone that "packs up" the blood sugar and carries it away from the blood vessels. This hormone is called Insulin. Insulin is a fat-producing hormone, so eating too many carbs at one time will produce fat by triggering insulin. Yikes! I like to think of insulin like our body's "ambulance." It "comes to the rescue" if you overcrowd your blood vessels with sugar molecules (from eating too many carbs - I'll define "too many" below). However, it's also a "double-edged sword;" although it rescues your blood vessels, it also produces fat! Insulin is what lowers your blood sugar, but if you eat at least 10 grams of protein with your carbs, your body will release less insulin because the protein slows down the carbohydrate break down! So follow the "30:10 Rule!" That means, whenever you have a meal or snack, keep your carbohydrate intake to less than 30 grams, and and be sure your protein intake is at least 10 grams. The result will be maximum fat-burning power, and it will allow your metabolism to stay fired up so you don't produce or store fat!

Great Snack Ideas!

A lot of people ask, “Do I get to eat on the 24 Day Challenge?” The answer is a resounding YES!” In fact, it is the key to maximum success for anyone wanting to lose weight and keep it off! Eat 200-300 calories every 2-3 hours! But what should you be eating? Follow the “30:10 Rule” - keep your carbohydrate intake at 30 grams or less, and your protein intake to at least 10 grams. You do not have to eat carbohydrates, but you do have to eat at least 10 grams of protein at each meal/snack (every 2-3 hours).
