It's spring, and
that means that bathing suit season is right around the corner! Better
weather means more opportunities to exercise outdoors. It might also make some of us realize that we hibernated
a little too much over the winter causing weight gain making
us feel flabby. Maybe you skipped a few workouts due to bad weather or
illness, or affective disorder derailed your workouts and caused major cravings (Craving Carbs? Blog Post) that...

there is ONE thing you SHOULD do EVERY DAY if you're serious about losing weight
and losing belly fat…………………..it’s drinking the Complete Protein shake every day for breakfast!
One of the benefits of drinking a LynFit
Complete Protein shake isn’t how inexpensive it is ($1.42 per serving), but the
fact that it boosts your metabolism 25% and off-sets those not so good eating
days we all have from time to time. This is my personal secret to helping
Did you know that we only need 1/3 of the food we eat every day? Yet, we all seem to continue to over-eat
even though we know it’s about decreasing calories to lose fat!
The biggest obstacle
that STOPS weight loss seems to be controlling our hunger monster! This causes us to snack all day! The problem
isn’t the snacking, it’s what we snack on that causes us to gain weight.
We tend to snack on foods
that are best left for weight gain like; yogurt, nuts and yes, this
includes almonds! Not only do thes...
If you have been exercising and not seeing the results you
hoped for or maybe you even gained weight (which is actually very common). numerous
research studies have shown that individuals who start on exercise
programs actually subconsciously eat MORE calories due to the fact that
exercise also stimulates your appetite. When it comes to exercising for
weight loss and transforming your body, not all programs are created
equal. Who wants to spend all of
that time in the gym to gain weight or grow you...
FROM THE HEART February 12 2013, 3 Comments
Every day people ask me… were you ever fat? Ha, that's a
funny question to me because I came from a very inactive family who did not
take part in anything active. My family watched NASCAR races and if you
have ever been to a race you know there isn't a healthy food in sight! It's
french fries ,beer and hot dogs and you sit through the whole 3-4 hour race! I
was plump already and as I became a teen I just kept growing! I lived for
food and when life got tough I ate my way through the pain! Eating my feelings
not seeing the changes you want to see even though your spending hours in the
gym………“ I’ve got GOOD news for you: It can be easier than you think. If you’re
still carrying or storing excess fat around your mid-section (aka your Insulin Band) you need to make some adjustments in your routine. Just
a few small changes to your workout could help you SKYROCKET your metabolism to
force your body to burn fat in as little as a few workouts. In fact most of
my clients say they feel better after their first workout!
It’s cold and flu
season and everyone is running to get the flu shot. That’s not the only thing you need to do to
stay healthy! Every day we are infected with viruses and IF our immune systems
are strong enough they will fight them off and we will not get sick BUT if we
are under stress, become anxious or aren’t eating or sleeping right, our immune
systems won’t be strong enough to fight off these harmful viruses. I’m not saying that I am for or against the
flu vaccine, BUT have you ever asked yourself …if the flu shot work...

Please don’t shoot the messenger! I don’t make the rules…..I just report
them! All day long I hear “It was just a
little” I only have “it” once in a while.
The reality is that you still need to lose weight; you are having it too
much! My message to anyone who wants to
lose weight is…give the food or drink up for 30 days and then decide if its’
hurting your weight loss or not. We all
seem to underestimate our bad behavior and overestimate our good behavior. It’s true!
Start keeping an honest f...

process in your body system. There are actually quite a number of supplements

(Please don’t shoot the messenger! I don’t make the rules – I just report
We all seem to
underestimate our bad behavior and overestimate our good behavior. It’s true!
Start keeping an honest food journal and be honest with yourself. Start writing
down every single thing that goes in your mouth, as well as how much and what
you put on it.
There are so many new
fat burners on the market – but newer doesn’t always mean better. Before you go
out and spend your hard-earned money on some hot new herb you can’t even
pronounce, be sure that you have done your homework.
The first thing that
you should be concerned with is: Will it hurt me? The next good question is: If
it works for me, can I live on it? If you
can’t live on it, you probably shouldn’t take it at all. If it does work, but
you have to stop taking it, why bother at all? Whatever gets you to your goa...
Rule #1: Always do your homework.
Never buy a supplement on impulse. Here are some questions to help you make the right decision:
Do I need it? Have you been diagnosed by a medical doctor with a condition which may be helped by this nutritional supplement?
Is it going to hurt me? What are the potential side effects? Medication interactions?
Is it safe enough to give to my children? I tell my clients that if it’s not safe for kids, it may not be all that safe for adults either.
Is it high quality? Higher-quality supplem...

A huge mistake people make when attempting to lose weight is that they try to boost their metabolism before they build it. Many people begin using supplements as the first step in their weight-loss program; however, if their metabolism isn’t built strong enough, these supplement...
Keeping your metabolism supercharged is the answer to keeping the extra pounds from making it to your stomach, hips and thighs. If your metabolism is in high gear, it will burn the extra calories instead of storing them as fat.
I am NOT saying that you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight. In fact, the opposite is true: You need to eat and exercise a specific way to keep your metabolism supercharged.
There are a few tricks to getting your metabolism to speed up. Some will see and feel results overni...
Is stress affecting your body? The answer to this question is a big “YES! The number-one complaint that I am hearing these days is: “I am under so much stress and it is causing me to overeat. I am storing fat around my midsection; what can I do to de-stress myself so that my body doesn’t suffer?”
First, we all need to get in touch with our bodies so that we can recognize what it feels like to be relaxed and how it feels when we are stressed.
The first thing I like to ask a person is are your shoulders (trapezoids) u...
Being hungry and craving sweets are two of the main reasons people fall off their diets. In many cases, the real reasons for cravings sweets or thinking we are hungry is because we don’t feel good. I refer to this as a funk, and in some cases, depression. There is a scientific reason for this. The good news is that knowing why you crave comfort foods can also help you resist them. The solution is getting you to feel better and properly nourishing your body to stop cravings before they begin. So, what’s behind the cravings? It all sta...

“I'll start my weight-loss program after the holidays.” So many people say it, but that attitude can kill you. Literally. Every time you indulge in high-fat foods, you damage your veins and metabolism – often permanently. For many overweight people, the havoc wreaked by a poor diet can take years to correct. To avoid such lasting problems, employ these five tricks that will rev up your metabolism and force it to burn fat even when you’re not eating perfectly (say, when you’re surrounded by cookies, cakes and eggnog).
The average person gains 7-10 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
It is easy to put on weight, but it’s not so easy to take it off come January. The holidays are not a license to throw your healthy lifestyle out the window. Rather, they should be a time to be even more aware of how you treat your body. Here are the top six ways that stars stay so fit through the holidays.

What would you say if I told you that your energy drink contained a half-cup of sugar, excessive levels of caffeine, unidentified stimulants, red food dye and taurine, among other health-harming ingredients? Many of the most popular energy drinks contain ingredients you wouldn’t put in your car – so why would you put it in your body?
Energy drinks are supposed to provide mental and physical stimulation for a set amount of time and are mainly used during periods of strenuous physical activity and to quench thirst. Unfortuna...
