I'm on Shakeology and I was very skeptical at first because I don't like gimmicks. And maybe I'm looking at this with a skeptical mind set but to me Advocare doesn't seem to all that great.

In advocare you have multiple products to purchase from but they of course will put a pinch in your pocket. Shakeology is one product (various flavors) and you have multiple recipes to keep your taste buds alive.

Check out the blogs that rate and comment on Advocare. See what the public has to say. Do the same for Shakeology. I haven't seen to many negative reviews for Shakeology. That doesn't mean they don't exist.

In an economy of penny pinching, I want one product to render as much variety as possible. I'm not buying Slim Fast or Special K because it takes a pantry full of products to make the program work.

I hope I've helped.

That definitely helps. Thank you for responding. I like the fact Shakeology isn't just chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. I am excited to try them all. I did compare nutritional values and Shakeology was better, hands down. I'm curious how it tastes and was curious what others thought. Also considering the coaching route but I want to try the shakes. Love the fitness programs and will probably purchase more.

thanks again!!

Hi

I am actually doing more research on this questions as well. I tried Advocare in the past and there was so many products, all of which were expensive and I felt like all day I was drinking one of their products, taking a pill, or drinking more.... but the people that are apart of that company have good hearts and seem to want to help just as the beachbody groups does.

I am completely committed to beachbody now because it is the packaged deal: support, fitness, rewards, nutrition...I love it and I love being a coach with so many tools available. I definitely recommend the shakeology and beachbody over advocare just for the simplicity, yet effectiveness of the whole system.

Hope that's helpful
Sam

I tried advocare for over two years, it was expensive, a waste and they had me taking 48pills a day. I bought the distributor membership and etc, a complete waste. Shakeology tastes better, I have more energy and have seen more results with beachbody than I ever did woth advocare.

I used to be an Advocare distributor. I liked the protein/meal replacement shake, but once I tried Shakeology as a part of a friend's challenge group, I fell in love and stuck with Shakeology. Shakeology kept me from getting hungry and had fewer calories than Advocare.

Yes, the capsules really did get on my nerves, too! I did not get the needed results with the 24-day challenge pack, but Beachbody products deliver!

I have never used Advocare, but I have tried alot of diet pills and slim fast and have never had the feeling that I have with Shakeology. Don't get me wrong I was very skeptical with the cost and kept having excuses of why I shouldn't buy this. I then had a friend tell me every time you go out to eat you spend $10 for a meal or more and that is true. Shakeology is $4 for a meal replacement. I normally drink mine in the morning and if I miss it or eat breakfast instead I notice a difference. I am hooked and LOVE it. I really like the chocolate better I do have tropical strawberry and just got this one in, but the chocolate you can mix so many different things with it. I Love the way it gives me so much energy and I don't have craving for sweets that much anymore. I LOVE Shakeology because everything I need is in my shake and I HATE taking pills so that is another reason I chose Shakeology. I am not a pill person. Hope I answered some of your questions as a Beachbody coach.

I just started AdvoCare - I LOVE it!! Almost done with the 24 day challenge and feel like my life is changing drastically for the better. I think everyone is looking for something different, so it's up to you. Let me know if you want to try it emoticon

I was also an advocare distributor..But I just never could get behind it. as a trainer, nutrition/health coach it is important for me to teach sustainable lifelong healthy living.. I don't like artificial crap and I don't think people should have to be spending $500+ a month and be popping handfuls of pills a day..That's not sustainable and Advocare teaches nothing about healthy eating.. it's take our supplements and you will be healthy. My upline was proud of the fact that she didn't have to workout to be "in shape".

and as far as the compensation package and growing your business. BB is so much easier and has so much more training than Advocare.. I'm a thinker and it seemed that with Advocare they didn't want to teach you, they wanted you to be robots and use their language and do everything your upline told you to do.. plus I don't want to have to have a bunch of "inventory" on hand and have a weekly meeting to grow my business.. People do what's best for them..and I'm SO GLAD I listened to my gut and went with Beachbody.. I'm also glad that my bad experience with Advocare didn't ruin me on MLM companies..
