What You Can Do Right Now To Lose Weight March 03 2015

On my blogs and in my newsletters I post about the most effective ways to lose 1 pound a day, even with a slow/hypothyroid metabolism. I provide delicious recipes and supplement ideas to help you overcome the cravings and lack of energy from time to time that we all struggle with. This year, due to some horrifically cold weather and lots of snow, people seem to be struggling more than ever.

I don't know about you, but I struggle much more when it's cold outside. The only thing I want to do is eat and sleep. That being said, I still want to fit into my clothes when spring finally rolls around. I would like to tell you about 4 things I never stop doing no matter how much I may want to. They keep my metabolism running fast, making it harder to gain weight while making it easier to lose.

  1. Get up and move every day, no excuses. I walk for 60 minutes daily - period. It's the only way I nail the 10,000 steps that our body requires. This weather is the perfect example why I suggest everyone own a treadmill and not rely on getting to a gym or going outside.

  2. Drink my shake after my 60 minute walk. I hate my Protein Shake cold so I make it the night before and keep it in the refrigerator, allowing me more time to sleep in. I use a small milk frother to make it fluffy and delicious. Just like those fattening, expensive beverages that we all like from places like Starbucks. If I crave milk or cream in my coffee I use a little of the pre-made shake in my coffee instead. 

  3. I also struggle with dinner this time of year because I crave comfort food. Slimming salads are not appealing so I reach for chicken soup for my metabolism or a sauteed salad to satisfy my cravings and fill me up. This type of eating allows me to stay on course while eating as much as I want without feeling guilty. You can find all the recipes you would ever need in my book, The Metabolism Solution.

  4. I never stop taking my supplements. If I did, my cravings would win and I would struggle to function or even get out of bed for that matter. Every LynFit supplement was created to solve a real-life problem. I battled with making sure to keep the quality high so you can actually feel the difference while being 100% safe.

    One of the most popular questions I get every day is, "what do you take and how, when, how much?".  Here is my current routine. This is a real-time, real-life look into my life. Warts and all. I pray that this helps you feel better fast.

    4:30am: Thyroid medicine

    4:45am: Walk at least 60 minutes on the treadmill

    5:45am: Melt-fat mochaccino shake. I never add any type of milk, fruit or anything that adds calories. I battle with weight enough so I never add additional calories.
    (1) LynFit Accelerator, (1) LynFit Cutting Edge, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit D3-Boost

    Off to see clients......

    9:00am: (1) LynFit Daily Power Shot pre-workout

    9:15am: Metabolic boosting workout group. I do the metabolic workout Monday, Wednesday and Friday religiously because it's only 30 minutes and I like the way it tightens, tones and reshapes my body fast without bulking. I also need the metabolic boost it provides compared to all the other workouts. You can learn more about the metabolic workouts HERE.

    10:00am: My brunch/lunch. (1) LynFit Chocolate Lean Bar with hot tea. Yes, I should have a shake but I have a Lean Bar instead unless I've been really bad with my eating.

    1:00pm: Green apple and small (kid's size) fat free, sugar free yogurt. This is my indulgence.
    (1) LynFit D3-Boost, (1) LynFit Pure Omega 3, (1) LynFit Carb Edge (I'll take 2 Carb Edge if the cravings are really bad).

    If I'm on the road and afraid I'll forget, or I'm struggling with food cravings or low energy/depressed, I'll take the Carb Edge at 10:00am with my brunch/lunch.

    I focus on work, not food, by staying super busy. If I need a mental work break I'll work on my projects or charities.

    3:00pm: Stretch to relieve physical and mental stress while overseeing my kids' homework.

    6:00pm: (2) LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse (3 - if hormones affect my regularity). I'll have a huge serving of Ciambotta on a bed of lettuce or sauteed salad with shrimp or tilapia. Some nights I will skip the protein at dinner to avoid chicken, which slows/stops my weight loss and causes my body to gain weight fast.

    Here's the kicker; night is the worst time for me, no matter how much I eat. So I leave a little wiggle room for myself all day by keeping my food clean and staying busy. Learn more about Metabolism Mind Games in "The Metabolism Solution".

    7:30pm: After dinner (yes, I know my meals aren't spaced 3 hours apart - I live in the real world too) I have a small tea cup that I put ¼-½ cup of water in with (1) scoop of Complete Protein Shake. I eat it with a spoon like cake batter that we all love - chunks and all. I love licking the spoon and this satisfies my insatiable sweet tooth. If the weather is nice I'll go walk the dogs instead. This helps me lose the 5 pounds I inevitably gain every winter.

    9:00pm: By 9:00pm I'm fighting to stay awake so I take (1) LynFit Lean Sleep and dive under the covers with my dogs.

I'm all about total transparency and letting you see how human I am. I'm no different than you. The most important thing I can teach you is that when you fall off; and you will, learn how to get up fast and brush yourself off, forgive yourself, and start over at your next meal. I hope this helps you battle your way through the remaining winter days.

Tomorrow is a new day and provides a new start. Just don't wait until a few days from now. Do.......it.......now. Your someday is today!

No Excuses, Stay Strong!
