From June 1st to December 16th 2018(2 days after my birthday) I spared no calorie while I dined at amazing restaurants, spent time with lovely friends, and traveled to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and my first trip to Australia. During this duration I must have put on 30 pounds of blubber. When I got back from Australia I looked myself in the mirror and was like I have to do something drastic in order to regain my physique. I decided to kick off an intermittent fast and so far I am having amazing results. I’m now 2 weeks into this method and the last time I checked I had lost 8 pounds, but even more by now since I don’t weigh myself everyday. I now look into the mirror with more confidence knowing I am shedding pounds instead of gaining them. My pants fit better and I have more energy. The way the fast works is like this you don’t eat for 16 hours! That’s it… You still get to eat what you want from 12 pm to 8 pm and then nothing. You can have coffee, tea, or water to suppress your appetite, and I even enjoy alcohol like vodka soda water or red wine. I cut out beer from my choices and drinks loaded with sugar. The first day was rough, but now my mind set is on track and I see myself staying the course, with a special occasion meal from time to time that happens to fall outside of the 8 hour interval to accommodate my friend’s schedules.

24 days and the challenge is over. I lost nearly 13 pounds! My measurements around my belly shrank to 35.5 inches, my chest was 42.5, bicep 17.5, and my quadricep is now 24 inches around. My reasons for taking on the 24 day challenge brought to us by Advocare, were a two prong approach. I was and I am currently looking for products that I can recommend on my blog caseynolan.com, and I wanted to lose weight. The 24 day challenge seemed to be introduced to me at the perfect time so I jumped on the opportunity. I spent the last few weeks documenting, photo taking, and mentally focusing on this event in my life as a serious positive change. I would like to thank my long time friend Nick Ritz for turning me on to the Advocare products that have made an impact on my life. The combination of supplements, meal plan, and exercise helps people like me and you suppress cravings for alcohol, caffeine, and junk food. The first several days were the hardest part as I encountered many opportunities to indulge in eating and drinking, but I kept telling myself how important it was to stick to the plan for 24 days. I tried to weigh myself at least every other day as this activity helped stimulate my desire to stick to the plan as best as I could. As I saw my weight drop first a pound, then 2 pounds, then 4, then 7, then 8, then 10, then 12, and finally 13 I cannot begin to describe the level of satisfaction and happiness that I experienced. For me my health is my wealth, so getting into shape and feeling sober, less sluggish, and overall more aware about my surroundings and enjoying my life on a different wave length makes me want to continue on with this life style. I will continue to use and support the Advocare products. I am a firm believer in everything in moderation including moderation. That is why I can safely say that taking the 24 day challenge is a perfect catalyst to achieving your fitness and health goals in a way you can still enjoy great meals and cutting out alcohol if you’re a drinker. I am more than happy to share the details of my experience with you and if you have any questions about the products or would like to order the 24 day challenge, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me on Facebook, Instagram or by email.

I stepped on the scale last night and weighed in at 218 pounds. That’s 10 pounds lost since starting the 24 day challenge. I couldn’t be happier. It hasn’t been easy, but the results are more than worth it.
It’s been a great day overall. I got a call from my friend who told me about the challenge and he cleared up my questions about meals and when to take the supplements. I played 27 holes of golf, ran over 2 miles and did 4 sets of leg exercises including squats (my favorite, really). I weighed in at 228 pounds before my work out and 227 after. I’m going to enjoy some deep sleep and get ready for tomorrow at work. I forgot to mention I cooked my own meal and will add pictures tomorrow.
Summer is here and I’ve been eating like it’s Thanksgiving. It’s already the 4th of July, so let’s enjoy the LONG weekend, but after that it’s time to take our health a little more seriously.
I’ve decided to take a challenge, the 24 day challenge by Advocare. It’s already worked for a few of my friends who I trust so it’s time to give it my review. I picked a date July 7, 2017.
