If you have been looking for the best weight loss program for some time, you may have heard quite a lot about Beachbody and AdvoCare. The two are quite popular right now. Of course, the crucial key to any weight loss program is self commitment. Whichever workout program or dieting plan that you follow, if you can’t hold your commitment to avoid eating unhealthy foods and exercise regularly, you are not going to reach any satisfying result. With a strong, unweaving commitment, most likely, you will be able to successfully cut down several pounds from your body weight regardless of the workout program or dieting plan that you choose.
Still, different people have different needs and conditions. Because of the differences, some programs can be more suitable for you than the others. Thus, it is quite important as well to understand the differences between different weight loss programs to find the one that you can follow properly. Below, we are going to see the comparisons between a Beachbody program, the 21 Day Fix, and the AdvoCare program, the 24 Day Challenge. The two are similar that they offer fairly quick durations, but they put emphasize on different aspects.
Take a look: Beachbody vs Weight Watchers.
Now a multinational corporation, Beachbody LLC is an American company that is based in Santa Monica, California, United States. Beachbody’s products and programs are incredibly popular because they are marketed through various ways. They use direct response infomercials, e-commerce, and multi-level marketing. They also have individual sales consultants that are known as coaches. With such broad array of marketing strategies, no wonder that their products and programs are so popular. However, this is not only reason. Beachbody also can help you to achieve various goals. Not only weight loss. There are also products and programs for fitness and muscle building. Thus, it will be very easy for you to move to the next goal after your weight loss purpose is achieved.
Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix Program
The 21 Day Fix program comes with seven 30-minute workouts. In this program, exercise plays a pivotal role to enhance your body health and to boost your mood. Of course, exercise has been scientifically known to improve the body composition and decrease stress. And, of course, by exercising, you will be able to burn down all calories that you have so that they don’t turn into heavy fat cells. So, don’t be lazy! Move your body!
The program also comes with a basic container system, which does not require you to weigh and calculate foods, count calories, or sum weight points. You only have to determine your specific calorie range on the first day. After that, you will be given a particular number of containers that suit your calorie range. These containers are color-coded for vegetables, fruits, proteins, complex carbs, healthy fats, and oils/seeds/sweet treats. As long as the food fits in the corresponding container, you can eat it. In other words, you can still eat your favorite foods and drink your favorite liquids; you just consume them on controlled portions. So, your diet will be fun and challenging instead of tormenting.
The program is designed to last for 21 days, putting the focus on controlling your diet and exercise. The trainer is Autumn Calabrese, and she will inspire you to work hard in every exercise and to stay committed in following the diet plan. There is no pill or fiber packet to eat. Optionally, you can insert Shakeology into your diet plan. This protein shake is great to curb your hunger pangs on snack times, though not required. The program can be repeated as many times as you want.
AdvoCare International, L.P. is an American company based in Plano, Texas, United States that sells supplements for daily nutrition, weight management, energy, and sports nutrition by using the direct selling business model. So far, the company has distributed their products across the United States through a network of about 60,000 independent distributors. While the marketing is not exactly a multilevel marketing model, the compensation plan is indeed based on that. AdvoCare has also sponsored various sports teams and tournaments, and also contracted many celebrity endorsers.
AdvoCare’s 24 Day Challenge
In the 24 Day Challenge program, there is no exercise included. Instead, it focuses solely on the diet and supplemental support. The program classifies foods into three categories, which are proteins, carbs, and fats. It then lays out the times when you should eat each food category. There is also a list of foods and beverages that you should avoid, which includes all alcoholic drinks.
The program consists of two parts. The first ten days belong to the Cleanse stage, which is a high fiber diet. This stage does not aim to cut down your weight yet; instead, this stage aims to get rid of the toxins in your body. However, not all people respond well to this stage, partly because of the supplements and pills. Meanwhile, the net fourteen days belong to the Max Phase stage. What is crucial in Max Phase is food intake timing. It is aimed for weight loss.
As mentioned above, there are supplements and pills that you have to consume in this program. These supplements and pills are intended to help you lose weight. The length of the program is 24 days, and you should wait for 90 days before you can run the program again. After the program period is over, you should continue the food intake timing. An energy drink, Spark, is included, but it contains sucralose (an artificial sweetener).

In general, Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix is more recommended. This is because it comes with a healthier, balanced approach. A healthy way to lose weight is by stopping unhealthy eating habits, managing your diet, and exercising properly. Besides that it can effectively cut down your weight, it also enhances your fitness and possibly develops your muscles. AdvoCare’s 24 Day Challenge may seem convenient, but relying on supplements and pills is not exactly healthy.
