Advocare Cleanse FAIL

I just decided to quit the cleanse. I don't consider myself a complete failure, obviously I could have done better on it, but I have my reasons. And it's not for everyone. Several ladies have had great results and I think it is awesome!

1. That fiber drink makes me sick to my stomach. The drinking aspect wasn't terrible. I mean I'd rather chug a coca-cola but I could get it done. However, a few hours later I was sick to my stomach. You drink it the first 3 and last 3 days.

2. I had to get a boob ultrasound. I don't think it's anything serious and I will keep you all posted. Let's just say the anxiety from this last week had me not caring about what I ate. I didn't get too crazy but I just didn't care about the cleanse with that going on.

( I wanted a booby shot the morning of the ultrasound and I even wore my shirt a little low to celebrate them)

3. The first 3-4 days of the cleanse was awesome as far as "being regular" goes but since Friday... I'm struggling. I'm even holding onto a little weight I lost and I'm pretty confident it's because I need to go to the bathroom. TMI but wanted my experience out there!

4. I think the main working aspect of the cleanse is the clean diet. I failed to follow it every single day. I cannot be that strict and function normally and still be a nice person. Like no salad dressing? No thanks!

5. I'm going to stick with a healthy lifestyle. Eating better & working out. No more weight loss tricks or special diets. I need to be me to succeed. I don't want to live a life with out sugar or french fries. I just need to eat them in moderation.

6. I would like to say that I do feel better and I can tell a difference in my body. My face and upper body feel thinner. I tried on some clothes yesterday and just felt really good. Was it the cleanse? Maybe, either way I am excited to keep working hard and seeing more changes.

I plan on maybe still taking the probiotic pills until Wednesday but I am done with that drink. I will post my results and measurements on Thursday with everyone else and best of luck to those still keeping on!

What was your cleanse experience?


  1. You did great girl... Who cares.. one day the cleanse is over and you are back to "making healthier choices". It is all about that. You rock and I adore you.

  2. NO biggie, girl, you deserve a pass on this! You did much better and got much farther than I think I would have.

    BTW- that 'booby' pic of you is so pretty! I love the head tilt!

    And I hope you bought that maxi, it's awfully cute!

    When do you get your results?

  3. Shelli, I love how honest you are. You have to do what is best for you. Still excited to see your results.

  4. I just started the cleanse today... And I will be honest- I know I'm going to cheat daily! I can't deprive myself or I will go nuts! But I think for me - I just need a key to eating healthier. & all you cool kids are doing it, so I had to try!!

  5. All that matter is what works for Y-O-U! You are not a failure or a quitter. YOU ARE FREAKING AWESOME!!! You are beautiful inside and out and honest, what more can a person ask for!! xo

  6. Girl I totally agree! I didn't even try the cleanse because I knew I wouldn't be able to follow-it. I absolutely CANNOT eat clean every meal every day. It just isn't me. I become a total bitch when I am hungry and I am pretty sure my husband would have forced some pizza down my throat before the 10 days were up! lol. Keep up posted about the ultrasound. I had to have one a couple of years ago. I have SUPER cystic breast tissue so they constantly feel lumpy!

  7. I am done with that drink! LOL

    Love you girl. You tried and it wasnt for you and i call that SUCCESS.

  8. i admire you for trying anyways! i am sure you will still see results from it but you have to do what is best for you. which includes being a nice person! :) way to go girl! and btw i love that dress. and i am ALL about celebrating boobies!

  9. dont worry about not finishing! The important thing is that you feel good! And that dress is super cute!

  10. Well I think you look super cute so who needs The cleanse =)
    I hope your ultrasound goes well and that it ends up being nothing. I once found something odd and had to have a boob ultrasound too. Scary! It ended up being nothing thank goodness. So I know how worried you must be.

  11. #5? Exactly how I live my life!
    Hope the results of your ultrasound come back clear!

  12. I would so much rather just watch my calories/clean eat than give up things like salad dressing! No way Jose! You need to do what is right for you, not because everyone else is doing it! I think you look great in that maxi, btw!
