Okay, so we received some samples of AdvoCare Shakes in the mail a little while back and, being the motivated, hard working reviewers that we are, instantly tried the shake and wrote the review so that you could know exactly how we rank them! Okay, that’s a lie. They sat there for a few weeks and finally someone picked one up and said “guys, why haven’t we reviewed these yet?!”
This is bad because Advocare is a pretty good in-between shake. Here’s the review.
At $39.99 for a 14 day serving, Advocare lands somewhere in the middle on price. It comes to around $2.85 per shake which certainly isn’t bad (though a bit inconvenient to be ordering a new package every 2 weeks).
These shakes contain 5 grams of fiber as their form of hunger blocking. Fiber is probably the best way to approach appetite suppression, but I guess this didn’t seem like enough because after the shake most of us weren’t really all that full. About the same as a Slim Fast shake from our experience.
With 24 grams of protein this almost leaves the ‘meal replacement’ category and moves into protein shakes. Plus it doesn’t quite have enough of your RDI to supplement the replacement of a full meal. Ranging from about 20-25% of it, when we usually want to see at least 30-35%. It’s calorie count and sugars are a bit high at 220 and 12 grams respectively.
Advocare comes in the old standards of chocolate and vanilla, but they also have a berry which is the one we tried. It was okay, but we figure if they can do this well with berry, they probably did really well with vanilla and chocolate. Most of us said that we’ve tried better, but we have also tried much, much worse. They do well at covering the vitaminy aftertaste that some shakes have.
