21 Day Fix vs. 24 Day Challenge

FIND ME ON A NEW WEBSITE! CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE SUPPORT YOU NEED!

Today I want to introduce you to my favorite workout: The 21 Day Fix!

Usually people assume "Oh, 21 days…that must be like the Advocare 24 Day Challenge." And I just want to shout from the rooftops NO IT'S NOT! :) As a health coach, I love when people decide to take control of their health and wellness…no matter WHAT program they choose to go with. I will not bash a program on my site because I don't agree with acting like that! I have friends that sell Advocare and I truly believe that we can all get along :) What I DO want to accomplish today is to give you a breakdown of the 2 programs so that you can make an informed decision about what's right for you. Because that's what it all comes down to…what's right for you? What will help you lose weight?

21 Day Fix: This program comes to you from Team Beachbody. 
  • Included is 7, 30-minute workouts. Exercise is a crucial part to body health as it helps to boost your mood, change your body composition and decrease stress levels. 
  • This program comes with a basic container system. There is no weighing food, calorie counting or weight watcher points. You figure out your specific calorie range on day one, then, based on that number you are given a specific number of containers you are allotted throughout the day. These containers are broken down into the following: Protein, Veggies, Fruit, Complex Carbs, Healthy Fats, Seeds/Oils/Sweet Treats. If the food fits in the container, you can eat it. Love Greek Yogurt? That's a red container. Want a bagel? That's a yellow container. How about wine? YEP IT FITS!
  • Program Lengths? 21 Days.
  • Focus? The focus is food AND exercise. Autumn Calabrese is your trainer and she will inspire you to work hard during the exercises and to keep following your plan in the kitchen! After all, weight loss is 70% Diet, 30% Exercise!
  • No pills, no fiber packets. Optional: Shakeology! This is highly recommended, but not required to achieve great results. 
  • Program can be repeated as many times as you wish because it is based on a healthy lifestyle! 
  • Price? $60 without Shakeology, $140 with Shakeology


24 Day Challenge: An Advocare Product
  • No exercise program included.
  • The food program is based on 3 food categories: Protein, Carbohydrates and Fats. The program lays out when you should eat each category. 
  • There are foods listed that you should avoid, including all alcohol.
  • There are 2 parts to this program. The first is a 10 Day "Cleanse" but it's not intended to give you side effects. It's a high fiber cleanse, which unfortunately, not all bodies respond to well. The focus of that first 10 days is to rid your body of toxins. The second phase is 14 days and is referred to as the Max Phase. 
  • Timing of food intake is crucial to this program. 
  • This program involves supplements and many pills. The pills and food you eat are intended to work together to help you lose weight. 
  • Length? 24 Days, may only be done once every 90 days. 
  • Post challenge, you have options to continue all the supplement usage or just continue with the knowledge of eating certain foods at certain times. 
  • Spark is provided (an energy drink). Unfortunately, this contains the artificial sweetener Sucralose. 
  • Price? Around $200. 

Both programs have helped people lose hundreds of pounds! Both companies offer support systems to their customers as well.

As you can see, there are positives and negatives to both programs. Personally, I favor the 21 Day Fix because I found it to be easier and more natural. It fit easily into my day and helped me to include more fruits and vegetables. At this point, I have the container sizes memorized!

I do have friends who have had some success with the 24 Day Challenge too. You need to decide which program fits YOUR lifestyle the best and which one you'll stick with. Both programs will encourage food changes and education, and that's why they're both so popular!! 

If you need help figuring out which program is best for you…fill out the form below! I have had experience with both and I can help you figure out which fits you.

  3. AWESOME comparison of these 2 programs. Thanks for this! Question...I loved Advocare Spark. Is Beachbody E&E a similar (comparable) product to Spark? I'm a new coach trying to learn all I can!

    1. The new Beachbody Performance Line's Energize would be what you're looking for; it's not a replacement FOR E&E, but it is ASTOUNDING––– Spark is made, as the author said, from Sucralose, which is fake crap. Energize, and the entire Performance Line, is NSF Certified, which is actually a REALLY big deal. It is certification that it uses top of the line materials and is approved for use in sports. Know how many Advocare products are NSF certified? Zero.
