Complaint / review text:
LetвЂ™s get down to the nitty gritty. Advocare is not perfect, but it is a solution to the sugar problems out there! I rather support Advocare than Pepsi or Starbucks (which IвЂ™ve spent plenty of my earnings consuming their drinks to keep up with my high stress work environments at the hospital)! In my desperate need of energy, consuming those drinks helped facilitate my weight gain. IвЂ™m not putting all the blame on them because I chose to drink those sugary drinks. But in my desperate need of energy, they were readily available. Luckily, I found Advocare for the alternative! So, please get ANGRY with Pepsi, Starbucks and similar types of companies. ItвЂ™s because of them, people like myself chose Advocare! I find that Advocare consumers want to slow down their sugar consumption to not ONLY help decrease their weight gain, type II diabetes, and a whole bunch of health issues but to PREVENT it too. Unfortunately, just eating вЂrightвЂ™ is not out there anymore! Try finding anything in the market without sugar: fruits and veggies included. Even the most natural, organic, non-GMO sugars wonвЂ™t help (including maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, etcвЂ¦). YouвЂ™re still consuming SUGAR (aka fructose)!! Working in healthcare, I see it first hand that Type II Diabetes is still on the rise. IвЂ™ve entered this particular diagnosis in so many patientsвЂ™ charts and it is sad!
I even avoided Whole Foods for a good wholesome fruit drink because there is still a lot of sugar in those вЂњon the goвЂќ fruit juices that they sell (Evolution, Naked, Odwalla, Boathouse). These have just as much sugar as SODA! I was so close to having gestational diabetes (diabetes while pregnant), because sugar is so hard to avoid. Try avoiding sugar sometime, its almost impossible! DonвЂ™t get me wrong the average healthy person needs some sugar but youвЂ™re already consuming it with fruits and vegetables!
In other words вЂњThank You AdvocareвЂќ for the alternative!
As for the many complaints of rude and unknowledgeable Advocare distributors, if there is a company with perfect service reps, cashiers, managers, etcвЂ¦ PLEASE enlighten me!!! I have worked with even rude nurses and doctors, but does that mean they ALL donвЂ™t know what theyвЂ™re doing or they are ALL working for selfish reasons? They could have just had a bad day or even a bad week! We hear the side of the person complaining but do we hear the other side of the story? DonвЂ™t judge a company by just reading one-sided stories! You donвЂ™t know what that personвЂ™s health history is or dietary background because they never revealed their whole medical history or medications, so please donвЂ™t read too much into what they say!!! They need to be their own health advocates, and if they donвЂ™t know what they can or cannot consume, or what they are allergic too, it is their responsibility not the company's!
