Healthier Ways To Detox Without Hurting Your Metabolism

Let's be honest, overindulging happens. The holidays have just begun, and they don’t end with the New Year. Our body doesn't know that it's Thanksgiving or Christmas, so it doesn’t make special provisions when it comes to gaining weight, becoming inflamed, or getting food hangovers that can include just about every health issue from allergies to digestive issues. Overindulging takes us off our healthy lifestyle track. 

But don't worry, you're human, so brush yourself off, forgive and forget, and treat your body with a little TLC by cleansing and detoxing the right way. Doing it the right way won't slow your metabolism or cause more stress. Physical stress can increase cortisol levels, which makes it feel impossible to lose weight and block fat burning.

Getting back to feeling more energetic with fewer aches and pains and convincing your body to drop those excess pounds is easier than you think, and is very good for our body when we do it the right way.

Let me help you cleanse and detoxify in the safest, easiest, and most effective way, making it good for everyone, especially if you have any type of thyroid issues.

Today is the day to get back to feeling better about yourself physically and mentally. DO NOT PUT THIS OFF UNTIL AFTER Christmas or New Year's. The damage you cause your body not only causes weight gain, but it also ages you and can often lead to disease that needs medical intervention. This can be avoided if you take proper care of your body by regularly detoxifying it, or better yet, living a leaner, cleaner lifestyle. The LynFit Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day Plan has built-in health benefits many people don't realize.

  • It has an automatic built-in cleanse that's safe and effective

  • It promotes a healthier way of life, knowing you're human, and there will be overindulgences, which is why it's one of the best ways to not only lose weight but also keep it off. It makes room for these overindulgences (that's one of the many reasons why you drink two shakes daily on this plan). It also is the best way to promote healing and reduce inflammation, so your aches and pains begin to fade as your body detoxes. (I should mention that if you've been eating very poorly, it sometimes gets worse for a couple of days before it gets better as you detox. But 99 percent say they feel better the same day they start.)

If you come from the old school of thinking that it's not enough food, it's time for a little brutal honesty. We only need 1/3 of the food we eat, and our world has become so accustomed to everything that we have lost sight of how little we really need. We are more overweight than ever before in America, despite the diets available, and it's time for an about-face to make America healthy again, and I wanna help!

The most important thing to remember when cleansing is making sure you are doing it safely and providing nourishment for your body and your brain (both the brain and heart are a muscle). You must provide your body with the specific nutrients it needs to stay healthy during and after the intense part of the cleanse, or you've done more harm than good.

The most important nutrients are protein and essential fat (aka omega 3). Note: it's not the kind that comes from olive oil (which is omega 6 and can cause inflammation), but the kind we are deficient in, which is only omega 3. This is also why doctors are suggesting we supplement with omega 3 daily to offset our excessive intake of omega 6 in our diets. 

It's not that easy, however. Most omega 3s add more toxins to our body and are not fresh enough to continue to the level of nourishment needed, which is why we here at LynFit take things a step further and create our omega 3 in small batches and harvest omega 3 from small fish (sardines). They contain fewer toxins than those that are found in common store-bought omega 3s.

We don't stop there either! We make very sure that every trace of toxin that might be present is microfiltered and molecularly distilled for the absolute purest form of omega 3 you'll ever find. We work very hard to keep costs low, so you and your family can afford to live on them, which is suggested.

LynFit omega 3s are THE ONLY omega 3s clean and pure enough to use while you cleanse and detoxify. In fact, most fatty fish like salmon (listen up salmon eaters) is NOT clean enough to consume during the cleansing and detox process. They contain lots of impurities and heavy metals, so if you're feeling any of the following symptoms, you should seriously consider cleansing and detoxifying your body.

  • Fatigue (especially if it’s chronic)
  • Aches and pains
  • Sluggish bowels
  • Repeated infections or colds
  • Allergies
  • Bloating
  • Cravings and hunger, despite being overweight
  • Puffy eyes or bags under eyes
  • Brain fog or mental confusion
  • PMS or intense menopause symptoms
  • Skin rashes or issues

The list can go on and on, but I’m sure you're getting the point. Everyone should cleanse and detoxify in today's world of overabundance. I suggest that all my clients maintain their cleanliness by making cleansing a weekly ritual by choosing one day every week (I suggest Monday's because of weekend fun) where they cleanse as a way of life. It's the best way to reduce aches and pains, slow down the aging process, prevent metabolic slow down (aka anti-aging), anti-disease, and anti-weight gain protocol you'll ever find.

This plan makes it easy, and you don’t have to sacrifice on flavor because our Complete Protein Shakes, Lean Bars, and supplements (including our omega 3 fats) are specifically designed to make sure your body gets the nourishment it needs while you cleanse and detoxify. Research has proven that an over-burdened body is almost always the underlying reason our bodies become out-of-balance, causing our hormones to become unbalanced, wreaking havoc on our health, making us gain weight, increased cravings and hunger, and feel tired all the time. 

That's why the Metabolic Boosting System is effective 100 percent of the time if you follow it. It's a natural way to address the underlying issues that negatively affect our health. And, if you're a fan of Keto-style eating, the Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day method is a cleaner form of Ketogenic eating because it's not saturated with unhealthy fats the way other Keto diets are. Not only that, it's so good for you that you can live on this method of eating because it's the cleanest, leanest, and MOST nutritious way of living that not only takes the weight off but keeps it off too — for life! That's why we say #LiveLean.

Things to Do and Things to Avoid

  • Detox and clean up your cleaning products, and swap out the household cleaners you use. Start using a more natural approach -- Castile soap as a household cleaner, for dishes, clothes, and just about everything. You'll save time, money, and protect your body and environment.

  • Take note of the toxins you are eating and putting on your body (swap skincare for LynFit Skin and Hair Care). For starters, they are 100 percent natural and free of nitrates, sulfates, and harmful ingredients that aren't good for you or the environment. Unlike most products today, these skin and hair care products will get you the results you seek, whether you're trying to improve the health or your hair, nails, and skin. Our conscious-clean skincare can help!

    For me, it's reducing eye puffiness through this holiday over-busy season, and thank God for Antioxidant Eye Cream that helps me get rid of the puffiness and dark circles that seem to go hand-in-hand with stress and the holidays.

  • Drink and eat from glass instead of plastic. Imagine living in a world where we all were more thoughtful about over-using plastic.

  • Eliminate as much EMF exposure as possible and get outside more. We are all surrounded by PCs, laptops, and cell phones that require WiFi. And the more time we spend in nature the less EMF exposure (a great excuse to get to the beach).

  • Cut out alcohol, coffee (unless you can drink it black or with Complete Protein Shake or Sinful Chocolate Sauce as your creamer), cigarettes, refined sugars, processed foods, and all saturated fats. 

  • Eat a leaner, cleaner diet, like the one suggested in this article. The simplest, healthiest, and least expensive way to detox yourself at home is to follow the Metabolism Boosting Lose 1 Pound Plan and make very sure you're taking the Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore daily. In fact, if you feel your body has become super-sensitive/very toxic and your symptoms are severe (above a 3), you may want to take (3) mid-morning and again at dinner, for a more thorough detoxing. The faster you detoxify, the better you'll feel. 

  • Drink pure water, or lots of organic green tea (hot or cold) that's free of chemicals, and stop sports drinks and sodas.

  • Avoid all detoxes and cleanses that are sold in stores, including juicing, because they harm metabolic health because of the blood sugar increase that most cause due to the level of pesticides found in juicing (yes, even organic ) due to the excessive amounts of produce used to create just one glass of juice. Even organic veggies contain some chemicals; it’s unavoidable, as rain that falls on them can’t be purified... just sayin :)

  • Avoid all other proteins except the (2) Metabolic Boosting Protein Shakes suggested for breakfast and lunch. If your life is busy, we suggest adding an additional Complete Protein Shake to equal (3) daily versus having fish or chicken, allowing your body to detox and purify itself.

    Keep in mind that LynFit products are specifically designed to be purer, so they can be used for cleansing. We don’t add fillers or gluten, inferior ingredients, or preservatives to them, which is what makes them so pure. 

  • Avoid all salad dressings and sauces and use herbs and spices, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, Daily Wellness Liquid Drops (in place of store-bought oils in dressings), or flaxseed oil that's cold-pressed.

  • Avoid all supplements except the ones suggested in the Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Plan as they are all designed for cleansing and detoxing. The following supplements can also be used and are encouraged to promote healing detox and cleansing more efficiently while saturating your body, especially your master gland, the thyroid. Every cell and system in your body is cleansed and stays vibrantly healthy during and after your cleanse.

    LynFit Thyro-Boost is a great way to combat the harmful effects of stress on our bodies and contains one of the best anti-stress botanicals, called Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha helps to combat stress before it gets the best of us and also balances hormones in men and women’s bodies, which is why men and women should both be taking it twice daily. It's an adaptogen and works with the body's intelligence and won't cause harm if our bodies don't need it.

    You would have to consume 20 pounds of produce to match the nutrients found in (2) dropper-fulls of Thyro-Boost. It is non-GMO, organic, and purer than the vegetables we eat every day. 

  • Start your mornings every day with fresh lemon juice in warm or room temperature water. Drink (1-2 cups) of lemon water upon rising before drinking coffee, tea, or anything else. This is a simple way to flush your digestive system and rehydrate your body. Drinking lemon water is an inexpensive, quick, easy, and natural way to flush your liver.

    While we sleep, our liver is hard at work restoring and regenerating, so drinking enough water (all the time), especially in the morning right when we get up, helps facilitate this process.

    Lemon juice is also known to stimulate stomach acid and bile production. Lemons are high in vitamin C and contain potassium, which also helps support the immune system. Drinking lemon water is a delicious, gentle cleanse that everyone can and should do daily. 

While some cleanses suggest saltwater-flushing or celery juicing, we don't because they are not good for the metabolism, especially those with high blood pressure, blood sugar issues, or struggle to lose weight.

This plan is better, not only because it's an easy way to flush or cleanse your bowels, but it also works faster, is more cost-effective, and can be lived on. This cleanse will help your colon and digestive system by forcing a bowel movement when you take the supplements as directed and add (2 dropper-fulls) of Thyro-Boost (hypothyroid, take 2 dropper-fulls, twice daily) and (2) Pure Omega 3 or (2 dropper-fulls) of LynFit Daily Wellness Liquid Drops (either before bed, as it helps sleep, or used as a salad dressing) daily.

This is a popular method for lots of people when it comes to kick-starting the beginning of their clean eating program, and as a way to rid the body of that “heavy” feeling, which makes it easier to stick to your plan.

When you begin using the suggested supplements, it helps rid the body of toxins naturally and helps with waste elimination, which ultimately gets the digestive system back on track. These supplements provide the nourishment needed, like b vitamins, vitamin c, and many more that are easier for the body to digest and assimilate (use) versus trying to get nutrients from our diets that are over-processed and void.

That's why it's always best taking the supplements suggested as soon as we wake up, on an empty stomach. Also, drink the lemon water before we do anything else (you can boil the water first, then drink when warm or room temp). Try to drink the lemon water when it’s warm (drink the whole 1-2 cups) within five minutes. If you drink it too slow, this won’t encourage a bowel movement. You should feel the need to go within 30 minutes if you’ve taken the Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore and consumed all the vegetables suggested every day. 

The results can vary due to stress, toxicity levels, daily activity (are you walking enough?), or consuming enough of the right vegetables. Some people may have repeated, loose stool for several hours after, but this is actually a good sign that your body is ridding itself of stored toxins. This can be adjusted, if needed, by using Lean Bars with Prebiotic Fiber, eating an apple, or, if needed, add some Sunfiber to help regulate things, so you can function. You don't want to stop the cleanse, however, as it blocks the system and keeps toxins and our bodies clogged inside. Because of this, make sure you plan your time and situation appropriately.

You may want to do the first few days on a weekend. Once your body is cleansed, the not-so-fun side effects begin to slow, so you don't need to worry about this every day. 

My favorite part of this cleanse is the simplicity of it and the fact that I don't have to worry about food for a few days. The smoothies and soups are as delicious as they are nutritious, so when I’m done at the end of the day, I can comfort myself with foods that are good for my body and share them with my family!

Here is Your Short List of Must-Haves for Cleansing and Detoxifying

  • Complete Protein Shake Advanced: While all LynFit Shakes and Lean Bars are good for weight loss and cleansing (in addition to metabolic boosting because they are lactose-free, low-carb, and low-sugar), non-GMO, organic Complete Protein Shake Advanced also contains very little sweeteners. We only add a micro amount, so the high-grade whey is palatable. You'd never drink it if we didn't, and the benefits are well worth the tiny amount of Splenda used. Not to mention, it doesn't spike insulin levels, which is far more harmful to our bodies.

    It's lighter and slightly easier to assimilate, and less sweet for those of you who prefer shakes that way. I love it because it froths, and I add it to my organic black coffee, eliminating the need for sugar or milk if you're still using them.

  • Thyro-Boost: Yes, even if you don't have thyroid problems, your body and health needs it. It makes sure your thyroid stays nourished, so it keeps working optimally, preventing the metabolism from slowing down when trying to lose weight. It also helps our bodies deal with stress and works as an anti-anxiety. This is safe to take with almost all medications, but if you have a specific question, you should ask your prescribing doctor.

  • Pure Omega 3 and/or Daily Wellness Liquid Drops: Since you'll be avoiding all dietary fats due to their rancid nature, your body will still need daily essential fatty acids (not omega 6s), and they need to be pure, which is why we ONLY suggest Pure Omega 3 and/or Daily Wellness Liquid Drops. Not only for your cleanse, but I recommend taking these every day to nourish, protect, and prevent any health issues like dry eye, achy joints, and brain fog, to name a few.

  • Lean Bars: For me, Lean Bars are GAMECHANGERS! They remove the excuse of not having the right thing to eat available, or not wanting to drink a shake. They provide the metabolic boosting, healthy protein our bodies need to prevent metabolic slowdown. They contain 4-5 grams of prebiotic fiber, which helps keep you feeling fuller longer, kills cravings, and also keeps your body running smoothly while also boosting immune health systemically, starting with gut health. Not to mention, they help keep our skin tight, and yes, even the skin on our face!

  • Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore: If you're not buying the Lose 1 Pound P Day kit that includes the Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore, you'll want to buy a few bottles to have around so you can and take (2) daily with dinner to keep your system cleansed, detoxed, and running optimally.

    Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore is one of the most underutilized supplements we sell. It's not a laxative, even though it has some laxative-like properties. Although eating healthy food is the first step in good nutrition, we can only get the value of the nutrients if your body is able to absorb them.

    Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore has plant-based enzymes specifically chosen to help improve your body's digestion, so what you eat is absorbed and utilized (burned off) as fuel versus stored as fat. This is also why it helps create natural energy, preserve lean muscle tissue, and fuel brain function, which happens naturally when our bodies can properly break down what we eat. Sadly, our digestion becomes impaired by our diets, and also as we age, which is why we need to add safe supplements like Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & RESTORE daily versus once in awhile. It's not only safe, but it's suggested because it also restores gut health!

    Did I mention that Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore also provides liver support, helping to protect damage that incurs from consuming alcohol? Proper cleansing is all about detoxing our liver, so it can do its job.

What are you waiting for? You can be losing weight and feeling great! As we prepare for Jesus' birthday, our bodies and minds will be ready too!!
