7 Signs You Need A Metabolic Boosting Detox

Our body is an amazing system. It was designed to thrive and protect us from disease. Unfortunately, we are human and develop some destructive, unhealthy habits, including not eating right, not moving enough or exercising, and not getting enough sleep. Unfortunately, when you combine these destructive, unhealthy habits with unhealthy stressors that can't be controlled (such as chronic stress) along with toxins in our food and air that can bog down our bodies natural detox system, our metabolism (how fast we can burn calories) severely slows down.

Cleansing and detoxing regularly can help your body reboot and reset and get your metabolism running back up to speed quickly... if you do it right and support your body in fighting for you. The problem is that most of us don’t realize we need to cleanse. Sometimes it can be hard to know when the time is right, so here are some key warning signs you need to detox as soon as possible... the right way.

But first, put down the so-called healthy green juice or any fresh-squeezed juice for that matter. They spike blood sugar levels, causing weight gain, belly bloat, and slow metabolic rate.  All of these interfere with the detox process and make it harder to stick to your healthy habits due to the increased hunger and cravings that almost always win out when we try to eat cleaner.

Look for these 7 warning signs that are telling you that you need to detox!


You might feel bloated all the time and notice your clothes start feeling super-snug, and it’s been harder to lose weight and keep it off, no matter how hard you try or how much you exercise. If you're like me, you might struggle with uncontrollable hunger and cravings for the wrong kinds of food (like carbs and sugars), making it harder to eat healthy and lose weight.

Most foods today are full of chemicals, preservatives, sugars, toxic oils, and other processed junk. This chemical load on the body can cause it to hold onto weight longer and resist weight loss—even if you’ve been eating what you think is clean most of the time.

You'll want to detox your body with a metabolic boosting whole body detoxifying cleanse to help remove the toxic load, release water retention, and prepare your body for quick weight loss and long-term fat-burning. 


Trouble concentrating or remembering important details? Maybe your brain feels like it’s in a fog more than usual, or you can’t focus on the things you want/need to. Add to that the bloated, “I can’t fit in my clothes overnight feeling... "? This can be quickly alleviated (24 hours or less when you do enough of the right things).

You need a metabolic boosting detox whole body cleanse that replaces any junk in your diet with more green vegetables, along with metabolic boosting (higher quality and purer) Complete Protein versus the so-called healthy, higher carb foods and inferior proteins such as oatmeal, bread, potatoes, rice (these whole foods rapidly spike blood sugar levels, making your body resist weight loss), vegan protein shakes, pre-made protein shakes, and as warehouse-purchased proteins.

Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein (and eating more fish versus chicken or other sources of supposedly healthy proteins like cottage cheese) combined with lots of fresh or frozen leafy greens provide superior nutrition while helping you clear out the fog by lowering blood sugar levels and boosting metabolism 25 percent. Remember, your body and mind are connected; we are all one system, and when we detox we help bring back the mental clarity and productivity we've been lacking.

While you might think menopause or the male version andropause are the cause, the reality is we need to incorporate cleansing into our daily health habits more so than when we were younger. That’s why these high-fat diets such as Paleo® and Keto® aren’t working. They may actually be making things worse due to overloading the body with excessive amounts of high-fat protein. Unless you're a pro athlete, you don’t need more than you need.


Gas, bloating, constipation, irritable, angry bowels, and even acid reflux are all signs of indigestion that is caused by overloading our body with too much of the wrong kinds of food and not enough of the right ones. When we live and eat in an unbalanced way, we throw our good gut bacteria out of whack. 

Most cleanses work off the laxative effect, which causes more damage to our gut versus healing. Over-cleansing can cause rebound issues that get progressively worse after over-cleansing. The health of your gut is also hard-wired to your immunity and metabolic rate, so cleansing the right way is critical... your health depends on it!

When our immune system is compromised, it’s hard to withstand the daily attack of viruses, pesticides, herbicides, and free radicals in the environment. Even food sensitivities become worse. Often, this is why getting sick often includes chronic aches and pains, autoimmune issues, and a host of other health ailments you might not associate with toxic overload: headaches, allergies, unbalanced hormones, poor healing, lack of energy, and many more. These are all signs your body is begging for a cleanse.

A metabolic boosting detoxifying cleanse can help build your immune system back and get you back on track, as well as helping you lose seven pounds or more in seven days, without harming your health... it improves it!


Having trouble getting out of bed in the morning or exercising? Maybe you feel overly moody, constantly negative, and irritable. These are signs your system may need a reboot, AKA, re-boost.

A metabolic boosting cleanse can help restore you to the happy, healthy, full of energy, young, youthful state, no matter how old you are.


If you’ve been going through (or have gone through) a stressful event or live under chronic stress, your body becomes like a toxic waste dump. What most people don’t realize is that our bodies require even more nutrients during times of stress. This is why we need a daily dose of super high-quality nutrition that doesn't spike blood sugar levels. This is also why juice fasts fail and not eating is never a good idea. There is a right way to cleanse and detox that reduces the toxic load on our bodies and boosts our metabolism without starving or living off water, while living in stressful conditions.

Stress can take a tremendous toll on your health, weight, and emotional state. When your body isn’t getting enough of the nutrients it needs, it’s also not prepared to handle the stress life throws at it. It sets us up for illness and opens the door for disease to take root. The combination of stress, lack of proper nutrition, and poor health is a warning sign that you could greatly benefit from a metabolic boosting cleanse that detoxes body, mind, and turbo-charges the spirit.

By cutting out excessive toxins and stimulants (like high fats found in red meats, egg yolks, cheese, and yes, even chicken and turkey), as well as excessive sugars found in fresh juices, creams we add to coffee, preservatives, excessive caffeine, and of course the worse liver clogger and health offender... alcohol, you can reduce the physical stress on your body. That makes any emotionally taxing events easier to work through.

For church fasters’ who fast regularly, this metabolic boosting fast makes fasting easier because it simplifies it and allows us to keep our spiritual antenna to God up with less or no interference. Most fasts are so complicated that we tend to focus on what we can or can’t eat, defeating the whole purpose of physical and spiritual healing. If you are already in toxic overload (you'll know because you weigh more than you should) and you overindulge in too much sugar (even if it’s from fruit) can prevent you from maturing spiritually and reaching new levels by becoming closer to God. In my world, we call this food drunk. It’s very common when Christians or anyone who gives up alcohol or unhealthy foods to replace them with natural sugars (like fruit juices and creamers) which can negatively affect our bodies by spiking blood sugar levels, setting us up for a debilitating crash.
*Note: Juice, including the so-called freshly squeezed juices, are so good at spiking blood sugar that it's why fruit juice is given when we give blood... it spikes blood sugar levels rapidly quick. Our bodies and our minds are damaged when blood sugar levels spike. Belly fat increases and we bloat quickly.

You can read more about this in my book, The Metabolism Solution.


Do you toss and turn or feel wired at night? Stress also makes sleep hard for many of us, and trouble sleeping is a sign something needs addressing. The right cleanse and detox can remove the physical factors that may be interfering with a good night’s sleep. That’s also why you want to swap out that blood sugar spiking, liver clogging drug you’ve been relying on to sleep for a natural version like LynFit Lean Sleep instead.

Everyone who tries LynFit Lean Sleep says they had the best night's sleep ever and felt less bloated. Many people don’t realize that Lean Sleep is pure melatonin which acts as an antioxidant and improves immunity without clogging your liver. 


A metabolic boosting cleanse will not only cleanse your physical body, but it can also provide a spiritual cleanse when you’re seeking a deeper connection with God or need a breakthrough on something that’s not working in your life. The Bible recommends (and we’re often called) to detox not just our physical bodies but also our minds (this is where all of the trouble starts by the way.. also known as stinkin' thinkin'). So while you're physically cleansing and detoxing make sure to do a mental detox. You’ll be detoxing your negative thoughts and fearful feelings, which keeps peace in your spirit, mind, body (notice I said spirit first), faith, and love in your heart, replacing all of that negativity that steals your joy. Try this metabolic boosting detox cleanse for as long as you can. Even a few days a week or month can make you feel better physically, mentally, and spiritually!

I suggest writing and saying these affirmations daily while you're cleansing to detox the mind...

The Bible doesn’t suggest we be strong, it commands it! "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -- Joshua 1:9

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. -- Philippians 4:13

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. -- Romans 12:1-2


While the 7 warning signs above may be some of the biggest warning signs, there are other signs that scream, "it’s time to cleanse!!!!" These might include:

  • Chronic joint pain and muscle aches (arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis)
  • Acne, skin rashes, puffy eyes, or other skin problems
  • Headaches, allergies, and sinus congestion 
  • Mood swings and irritability, even over small things
  • Autoimmune issues

Our bodies need time to reset, rejuvenate and restore to reboot and recharge. If you’ve been feeling like you need a restart to reset your health or mental state, a metabolic boosting detox all-over-body cleanse program can bring you a sense of renewal quickly.

This is exactly why I created the Metabolic Boosting Cleanse & Detox Kit. It's a 100 percent natural plan that’s so good for you that you can live on it for life. Try to follow the metabolic boosting cleanse for 21 days straight to allow your whole body (and mind) to detox. You’ll turbocharge your health and cleanse your system with the right clean superfoods, and none of the junk that clogs your body and blocks weight loss.

Happy, healthy cleansing... be prepared to feel great and you can expect to lose a pound per day of 7 pounds in 7 days!
