    two questions:
    1) Is squash considered a complex carb? In one area it says veggie and on the great foods pdf its considered a starch.

    2) On the Advocare great foods pdf its has some veggies such as leafy greens, broccoli, asparagus as unlimited food but in the actual book its lists that leafy greens are two cups and all other veggies are 1 cup…. which is correct?
    Thanks!

      @ Luke,
      Zucchini and summer squash don’t need to count as your carb, but butternut, acorn, etc. would count just like a half sweet potato.
      If you eat extra veggies, like greens, cucumbers, celery, asparagus without dressing, etc. you can increase your portions.

      @ Eva,
      For best results sick with leaner cuts of protein. Chicken, turkey, fish. Pork tenderloin would be acceptable if you need to use pork.

      @ newtothis,
      It is best to avoid deli meats as many of them have filler, high sodium content, and some even have sugar.

      2-3 hard boiled eggs.Ground turkey is fine. Small amount of olive oil on salad is best.

    Is Honey allowed? Or almond butter or almond milk? Is there a specific type of english muffin that is allowed? I am a very picky eater and just bought a challenge. I don’t eat pork, seafood, or chicken and i’m limited on vegetables i like. I am having a hard time planning a menu for the challenge. any suggestions for someone that eats like a 5 yr. old would be greatly appreciated!

    1- I did the cleanse but had terrible headaches & drank coffee with sugar and cheese everyday among with spark
    2- Today was day 11 & ate bread
    I’m having a hard time so my question is should I quit & start all over again with the cleanse

    This program is so confusing..The instructions that came with the program says you can have complex carbs for lunch and another for dinner if needed. Some ppl have no complex carbs, no whole grains ect… What exactly are you suppose to avoid on the cleanse because although i have been following the instructions it seems as if that is wrong. The cleanse phase food seems like the same food as Max phase….protein, complex carbs, veggies, fruits????? very frustrated

      @ Crystl. Mix it really well with a little extra water and chug it. It will thicken if you let it sit.

    The instructions say for breakfast, if you don’t have the MR shakes, to have a protein, carb, and veggie. So why do all suggestions say to eat a hard-boiled egg and fruit for breakfast, or oatmeal with fruit? Need more suggestions for breakfast options please!

    I am getting a lot of mixed information concerning complex carbs and the cleanse phase. I have followed the links you have provided to other comments like mine, but I am still not understanding. For example, is it okay to have 1/2 and avocado at lunch with a lean protein and 1/2 cup of roasted butternut squash with dinner (so 2 servings of complex carbs on cleanse)? The guide that comes WITH the 24-day challenge kit says that it IS okay, but then the link to the grocery guide on this website says it is NOT okay for the cleanse, but okay for phase 2. Can you please help shed some light on this if it is okay or not?

      If you are losing quickly, should not be a problem. Otherwise 1 per day.

    This may be a stupid question, but in the book when it says 1 serving of protein is 4-6 ounces, they mean for one meal?
    Because when I go on choosemyplate.gov like they suggest, it says that amount is a daily recommendation. Meaning, I should eat only 4-6 ounces of protein a DAY? or per meal?

      @ Maggie,
      3-4 ounces at lunch and 4-5 ounces at dinner of lean protein is a good guideline.

      @ Maggie
      I’m really glad you asked this question, the handout is not clear at all on on how much protein, especially if you compare with choosemyplate.gov. This is the most confusing diet plan I’ve ever followed! Relieved to see I am not alone.

    Can you have all natural peanut butter during the cleanse phase as your protein? Are boiled eggs okay for breakfast during the cleanse phase? I am looking for quick meals as I have a hectic schedule. Thanks!

    I’m looking at days 11-24 and I’m overwhelmed at the amount of food suggested to eat! 3-4 eggs??!! I can’t eat that much food! Fruit and the meal replacement for breakfast, no need for morning snack-just spark, lunch of protein & veggie, afternoon snack and dinner is plenty for me. Will that be okay? Also, can I start having coffee again on day 11?
    thanks!

      For best results, drink Spark and water.
      Eat what is comfortable for you, there is no rule on eating 3-4 eggs.

    I just started this today. I had 2 boiled eggs and the fiber drink and more water. I really wish they had a menu plan I can follow. I don’t have time to make all these different dishes and I work. I have been on the computer researching this and I can’t get a straight answer as to what to ear and not eat. Confusing to me as well.

      For best results, have a hard boiled egg and some fruit so you are not so hungry later. You can wait a bit if you want.
