Thru the years I was mostly against using supplements but I have come to understand that Good Products can help overcome weight loss obstacles, especially plateaus and enhance performance & recovery.
I have never really had an issue with weight loss . . . that is once I figured out the formula that worked for my body, however in my 40's I noticed that the equation had changed & I was not able to gain or lose as easily as before.
Now at 51, the equation has once again changed. In fact, the scale stopped moving completely, my muscle mass started to diminish and recovery from long runs etc was taking longer than usual. Not to mention, my continued struggle with dehydration. I tried all my "tricks" but nothing seemed to make a difference.
After being introduced to Advocare, I slowly started to see some progress. There have been several products that have helped me and the first one I would like to highlight is a product called Catalyst.
It's like I woke up one day and noticed less muscle definition, to which I worked very hard to get and maintain. I realized I needed some help. That is where Advocare came in. I started with the 24 Day Jump Start and eventually added in the Catalyst. I finally saw some movement on the scale plus I noticed my body started looking better with regard to definition. Catalyst is a grouping of amino acids that assist with creating & maintaining lean body mass. The most important part of that is helping to retain muscle.
Don't get me wrong . . . I'm not trying to be 9% body fat . . . been there, done that . . . Not impressed with what you have to do to get there. I just want to maintain what I already have & assist my body in fighting the aging process.
So I took a chance, after research & advice from some people really familiar with Advocare and in my age bracket. I think that part is important too. No one really knows what your going through unless they have experienced it too, so I reached out to Mia for her advice.
I ordered it, tried it and have added it to my daily regimen. With the injury I sustained in January, I was even more concerned about muscle erosion but I feel that with the addition of my Advocare products I have been able to maintain. I've actually felt really good despite the injury and attribute that back to consistency in my diet and Advocare.
If you have questions, feel free to ask me. I'm ALWAYS here to Help!
