Question:

I can't have gluten or dairy, and the gluten and dairy-free substitutions made me gain weight. Can I follow the Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day System? Help!
— Mary M.

Answer:

Yes! Dairy and gluten are both the enemy when it comes to boosting the metabolism and losing weight, so the LynFit Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day System has always been gluten-free. All of our products are micro-filtered to remove all traces of lactose. Lactose prevents fat burning because it spikes blood sugar levels due to the sugar (lactose) it contains.

LynFit is the cleanest, leanest nutrition program, making it the healthiest possible way to lose weight and improve health.

Question:

I feel so much better. I have more energy and I have fewer stomach problems since I'm not eating processed carbs like bread, rice, or pasta. But what can I eat to substitute for these foods?

Answer:

I'm so very glad to hear you're feeling better, and I know how you feel being more energetic. I get sick a lot less too, and my metabolism is much better without these foods in my diet. Replacing these foods is easy! Here is what I do:

Replace bread with lettuce, used as a wrap. Or, think outside of the breadbox and stuff a pepper or tomato instead.

For rice, I use Riced Cauliflower, and I like it much better. Season it the same way. You'll save lots of calories and carbs.

You can substitute pasta with all kinds of spiralized vegetables like zucchini, celery, or yellow squash. These taste better and won't slow your metabolism the way gluten can. Spaghetti squash is always delicious as well.

Get creative, and you'll be amazed at what is available to you. Check out the Veggie Spaghetti and Turkey Meatball recipe in my book, The Metabolism Solution.
