Here is what Mark and I ate during days 1-5 on our phase 1 cleanse with Advocare. You will notice we ate ALOT, and still lost weight!
Anytime you see “fruit smoothie” it is always made the same: half a blender full of ice, two servings of fruit ( one for each of us) two tablespoons of chia/flax blend, and enough orange juice to make it mix well ( usually half a cup)These were very low calorie healthy smoothies. Some flavors we did were strawberry-banana, pineapple-honeydew, Orange-pineapple, strawberry-orange-banana, raspberry-honeydew-pineapple, tried one with cantaloupe and we didn’t care for that.
Also, when you see meat portions mine are 4 ounces and Marks are 6 unless stated otherwise. Each day we had various supplements we took also.
