Green And Lean: The Metabolic Boosting System Works March 17 2015
Every once in a while I will receive an email from someone that just really hits me where I live. It may be from someone who is going through, or has gone through, similar circumstances to what I had to overcome. Other times it may be an email from someone who feels completely alone in their weight loss journey and needs to know that they are not peculiar or weird. In fact, if the truth were known, those people are probably more like the majority of us than they'd ever know. And then there are those times when I receive a letter or email from someone who has come full circle - from searching for the right answers to finding and utilizing them to reach their personal goals. All of these; the ones searching, the ones needing assurance, the overcomers - That, is what I live for.
Today I'd like to share one with you that I recently received that really hit home. It reinforced to me that I am doing what is intended of me. I think when you read it you'll see a lot of points that will fit into your own life. Here's Leisa Hipsher's story.....
"My name is Leisa Hipsher. Most of my adult life I have been health conscious, watching what I eat and moderate exercise. Always being interested in the latest way to stay "healthy" caused me to cycle through several diet programs. While I was never clinically obese, I would fluctuate up or down a size through my 20's and 30's. Then my lifestyle changed. My new career required traveling. Eating in hotels and restaurants became the norm. To offset those calories I would try to balance it with the current fad of shakes and smoothies. But moving up 2 sized was inevitable. This, along with now being in my 40's resulted in the new hunt for the latest "fad". What I found was the perfect solution.
Lisa Lynn was being interviewed on Better TV and I was intrigued with her straightforward system. She emphasized the cornerstone of her program was the delicious Complete Protein Shake that she used for Martha Stewart when she was her trainer for 13 years. Martha even helped her develop the yummy taste. Well, I was hooked. Being a shake girl most of my life, I knew I could make this work. Lisa became a huge resource of information and explained why I would fluctuate between sizes. Most of my protein shake choices were soy based and used fruit. Lisa explained how and why using whey protein is the best choice for losing weight. Her philosophy was not a fad, but based on science. I began her Metabolic Boosting System right away.
It fit perfectly into my busy lifestyle. I don't have to think about meal planning; she's done it for me. I have a shake for breakfast and most days also for lunch. I love the Alkalinity Shake recipe found in her book, "The Metabolism Solution". Putting the ingredients in baggies makes it effortless. All I need to do is throw them into a blender along with the Complete Protein Powder and I've got a delicious green smoothie with no fruit. If I'm traveling I will make them ahead of time and keep in my cooler. How easy is that? She even has safe supplements and metabolic workouts that are fast, effective, and make it easy to stay consistent.
For someone who is almost 50 with a stubborn metabolism this is fabulous. Lisa is the real deal. And if Martha thinks "it's a good thing", then that's good enough for me.

Biggest obstacle: Sugar, but I have learned how to offset it with Protein Shakes and quickly get back on track.
