      @ Laura,
      You can take 4-6 a day. During Phase 2, 2 pills are already in your strip pack.

    I read you should take 3 catalyst before breakfast and then 3 before lunch. I only have 1 bottle so I wouldnt have enough to do that for the 24 days. What should I do.

      @ Lindsey,
      Adding another bottle would be ideal. Otherwise, you will have to take 3 capsules once per day.

        Should I have a complex carb during lunch and dinner then? Or just have it once during the day? In the meal plan is said during breakfast and lunch and optional at dinner.

    Good morning.

      @ Mike,
      Would stay away from pickles during 24 Day Challenge. Natural peanut butter with no sugar added is okay as snack if you continue to lose. Lunch ideas are here.

    Can we use avocado oil during the cleanse phase? Or should I just stick to broths and no calorie olive oil sprays? Also, are mushrooms ok?

      @ Angie,
      Small amount of olive oil or PAM. No broth. Mushrooms are okay.

    Does the 24 day bundle include everything you need for 24 days or do you need to buy additional products to complete the challenge as plan is written? From what I see you only get 1 box of 14 count shakes which does not seem like enough for 24 day.

    I just started the cleanse today. The person I bought the products from indicated I should drink a shake every morning. I see you indicate that you shouldn’t do the shakes until after the cleanse. The shake is mixed with water. Is this OK?

      That is Best By, not an expiration date. Discard if they don’t look fresh.

    I’m confused about what I am supposed to eat for breakfast for days 1-10 because I have seen 2 different eating plans. One eating plan says to have a piece or bowl of fruit for breakfast and then 3 eggs, oatmeal , or fruit for mid or ing snack. While another eating plan has said to have a protein, carb, fruit or veggie for breakfast and then a protein, healthy fat, fruit or veggies for snack. I just don’t know which eating plan to follow.

    I am a graduate student and take generic adderall on a daily basis (amphetamine salt)- is this ok to take during the cleanse phase of 24-day challenge? I would cut out the Spark as they are both stimulants.

      Im not a doctor. But I was on adderall for ADD for 8 years and got off it during my 24 day challenge. I havent had it since. The spark is amazing. Of course check with your doctor, but just my experience. I have been adderall free for 18 months!!!

    I have 2 advocare products that expired in August of this year. The herbal cleanse and the mns max 3 shake.

    Are these still ok to take or should I discard them?

      The date is “best by” so for the freshest, would be good to stay close to the date, but many products are good well after.

      For best results, the only tea advised is decaf.

    Does Advocare help lower your blood pressure? I have heard this from a few distributors.

      @ Kim,
      Advocare does not make medical claims. I can talk to my own personal results. Healthier Advocare eating plan, lost weight and exercise helped me lower my blood pressure.

    I had started the 10 day cleanse and now have a terrible cold. Is it okay to continue the cleanse while taking cold meds or wait until I’m better?

      @ PHyllis,
      Look at ingredients in over the counter cold meds. Many cough syrup contains a high amount of sugar.
