How To Avoid Weight Gain

Worried about holiday weight gain and the additional stress it can bring? Don't worry; we have your back and are here to help!

The holidays are fast approaching, and 'tis the season I refer to as “The Sugar Season.” It kicks off the moment Halloween candy hits the shelves or online stores, due to COVID-19, changing the way we shop and eat. The Sugar Season and its high carb sweets and high-fat foods extends from Halloween to Thanksgiving, all the way through Christmas, and extending into the New Year.

Suppose you're already stressing about the holidays and the weight gain associated with them. Here are three simple tricks that can help you navigate these unprecedented times that have increased stress, leading to insatiable cravings for all of the wrong things.

It's important to note that the occasional sweet treat or your favorite food/dessert is certainly acceptable, especially if you're using our famous Metabolic Boosting System that provides maximum strength cravings-killing support and nourishment for the whole body. What you may not realize is that this protocol is strategically designed to make room for our favorite foods we all love to eat. That's also what makes this NOT a DIET but a lifestyle that's leaner and healthier and much more sustainable (meaning a diet that you can live on and maintain your weight loss and the health benefits that go along with losing weight).

It's important to note that many of us who were once overweight have damaged metabolisms that have been affected by hormonal imbalances like insulin and cortisol levels that lead to erratic blood sugar levels and excessive belly fat that's difficult to lose, also driving hunger and cravings, making it difficult to stop eating when we're full, leading to overeating.

It's our body’s biology and is simple science. For me, understanding how our metabolism works was my game changer, my aha moment that led to my weight loss after unsuccessfully trying every diet on the planet and spending excessive amounts of time in the gym. You're not alone; I’ll be following these guidelines right along with you. It's how I lost 40 pounds and kept the weight off. I’m living proof this LEANER LIFESTYLE WORKS, and it will for you too!

Back to eating our favorite foods ... while it's okay to eat the occasional treat or dessert, if you're not careful, they can derail your weight loss. I do believe life is way too short not to create room for your favorite foods. It's crucial that you take the necessary steps to protect your health that can also allow you to indulge without wrecking your health and fitness goals. 

No doubt the sugar-filled, high fat foods will soon be surrounding us all over the next few months. We will all need as much hunger and cravings support we can get. 

None of us need more sugar in our lives, so we need to do our best to limit it and a healthy, nourished body is the best prevention when it comes to killing cravings and blunting hunger before they become a problem when you choose to overindulge. Following this protocol is the best way to avoiding weight gain or new fat cells from forming that throw off your hormones and make it even harder to lose weight. The steps I'll lay out here help blunt or even block the unhealthy effects that it has on your body. This includes weakening your immune system, in addition to making it easy to gain weight and preventing you from losing weight.

For maximum strength weight control, you’ll want to take your nutritional supplements consistently as suggested. This time of year I add a third dose, and I’d recommend that you do too.

Focusing on weight management is the best way you can take better care of yourself, which directly correlates with a stronger immune system, and the right self-care does more than just make you feel better. It can also boost mood, reduce aches and pains, and make it easier to lose weight and burn off stubborn belly fat.

What most people don't realize is that all the nutritional supplements found in LynFit's Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day System do much more than help you lose weight. They are all derived from natural, plant power ingredients that make it easier to lose weight and avoid cravings for sugar and all the wrong foods. They also improve health; here are a few:

  • Natural botanical ingredients
  • Antioxidants
  • Bioflavonoids
  • Herbs
  • Electrolytes
  • Green superfoods
  • Amino acids (Vegan Complete Protein provides plant-based Complete Protein)  
  • Prebiotics, probiotics, and post-biotics (non-dairy kind). More on post-biotics later.
  • Biotin for hair, skin, and nail health
  • B12
  • And, of course, all the “classic" vitamins and minerals that work together synergistically to address the underlying issues that can block weight loss and fat burning, make our bodies ache, and affect our mood

It doesn't matter what your goal is, this system can help you improve every aspect of your health. If you follow these steps they will help you prevent weight gain through the holidays, even if you're not eating perfect or hitting the gym like you should be.

You'll love the side effects of this Metabolic Weight Loss protocol loaded with all of the superfoods your body needs to lose weight and much more. They also help improve energy (without stimulants), boost mood, while killing cravings before they begin.

If stress or the weather make you ache more, or you have arthritis, it also helps manage inflammation, manage cortisol levels, and rebalance out-of-control hormones.

This specific protocol of nutritional supplements, which includes replacing two meals a day with a Complete Protein Shake, provides a modified form of intermittent fasting that allows you allow you to STOP taking huge handfuls of vitamins. You'll be trading them for a more robust, smarter, more strategic nutritional supplement protocol that works. It's also THE MOST efficient way to take better care of yours and your family’s health and saving you a ton of money! We all need that, right?

Here is how they work. This cheat sheet will show you how much and when you should take of each nutritional supplement, and which ones you may want to stock up on for maximum strength appetite support.


LynFit's Metabolic Boosting Complete Whey Regular Protein is the cornerstone and BEST when it comes to metabolism-boosting and protecting your health. It naturally and safely...

  • speeds up metabolism 25%.
  • manages cortisol levels (stress hormones that are elevated for all of us living in today's world).
  • turns off hunger and cravings.
  • removes the decision-making that can be tricky, especially this time of year. There's no need to spend time you don't have counting macros/calories, or making tough decisions that get most of us in trouble.

Simply and deliciously replace two meals every day with a Complete Protein Shake, made with water, instead. Don't add fruit or any type of milk (see the Metabolic Boosting Lose 1 Pound Per Day Plan free download for specific directions).

ALL of LynFit Nutrition's Complete Protein Shakes boost metabolism, but the Original does it best. If you're wanting to bring your A-game and lose more weight, choose the Original Complete Protein 80% of the time. It's okay to integrate; in fact, it's a good idea to use the others as well every 3-4 meals or so. But use the Original more than any other for best results.

Drink it as the first meal of every day to “break the fast” with the most efficient boost. This should be 12-14 hours after your last meal of the previous day. For example, if you ate dinner at 7 pm, have your shake by 9 am the next day, or as close as you can. If 14 hours is too long, start at 12 or less and work your way up to a minimum of 12 hours, which your bodies is designed for. This is the best for every aspect of your health and strengthens immunity.


Take Accelerator Advanced and Cutting Edge as soon as you wake up and again at lunch time. I personally take them three times a day, making sure to take them the moment I open my eyes every day. I then carefully space them out every 3-4 hours, so my body gets the nutrients it needs and my metabolism gets a steady supply of the specific nutrients needed to accelerate weight loss, fat burning, and preventing my metabolism from slowing down.

Accelerator Advanced (also known as Keto Carb Edge) blocks 65% of the sugar and unwanted carbohydrates from being stored without causing gastric upset or issues. It primes and creates an environment within your body that makes it easier for you to lose weight. It's science, based on your body's biology.

It kills cravings, blocks hunger, and boosts energy and mood naturally!


Cutting Edge is our most popular thermogenic fat burner, and for good reason!
It works especially well when you cheat. When you overeat on fats, carbs, and sugars your blood pressure and pulse begin to rise, signifying that blood is rushing around your body. So are the unhealthy sugars, fats, and blood sugar-spiking carbohydrates. This is how your body becomes saturated with unhealthy sugars and saturated fats, and also exactly why you should be stacking Accelerator Advanced with Cutting Edge to cover both bases. This is especially true when you aren't eating as clean as you should be.

Accelerator Advanced handles sugar and carbs and Cutting Edge takes care of fats, including stored fats that can begin to circulate when your blood moves them. Yes, if stroke comes to mind, you're right; which is why and how Cutting Edge can help protect your heart. Here’s how...

Cutting Edge contains the non-stimulating amino acid L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine binds to the fatty acids that are circulating in your blood. Not only from the foods you eat, but also the stored fat (that pudge you can grab on your stomach, hips, and thighs). It grabs it and transports it into the mitochondria, which is where it's burned off. Mitochondria are in lean muscle tissue, which are the metabolic furnace or the powerhouse that burns off excess fats, sugars, and calories.

Most people assume that because they are eating healthy and exercising that they are also burning off stored fat or the fatty acids they ate; however, your body requires the proper amount of L-Carnitine, CLA, choline, and other helper-nutrients in order to do its job efficiently. That is why supplementing is CRUCIAL if you're serious about transforming your body, improving its health, and staying strong.

Cutting Edge also preserves lean muscle tissue, ensuring your metabolism continues to stay “fired up” and preventing new fat cells from forming. Energy and mood are improved due to your body working the way it should when it's nourished properly. This supplement protocol makes it easy to do just that!

Take (1-2) Accelerator Advanced and (1-2) Cutting Edge in the morning, as soon as you wake up. Take them again 3-4 hours later (mid-morning) and again early afternoon. Make sure to take (2) of each, each time, if you're over 200 pounds, or feel your body can handle it.

During the holidays, if your day goes long along with your festivities (eating and drinking), it doesn’t hurt to take them 30-minutes prior to indulging, whether it be food or alcohol. This helps protect your liver from becoming fatty as well.

Steps 3A and B are your evening and nighttime fat management nutritionals. They won't affect sleep the way the more robust morning supplements can due to the b-complex they contain that may, or may not, affect sleep. It's smarter to be safe versus sorry and be strategic about what you take and when.

That's also what makes our plans the best. They are strategically designed protocols that take the guesswork out of doing it yourself!


Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore has more health-boosting benefits than we have time to list

It makes sure that what you eat is digested properly, nutrients are utilized efficiently and prevents the not-so-good calories from being stored as fat. All the while protecting and improving whole-body health, starting with gut health, which is where health begins. A healthy gut means a stronger immune system, and none of us can get enough of that insurance right now.

Take (3-4) Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore 30-minutes before (or with) dinner or your last meal of the day. It's better to take it in the late afternoon or as soon as you remember versus skipping a dose. 


Even if you sleep well, YOU SHOULD STILL be taking Lean Sleep if you're trying to lose weight and want to burn off stubborn belly fat.

Lean Sleep is more than a natural sleep aid. It is one of the best antioxidants on the planet, which helps improve health while you sleep. This is when your body detoxes and needs protection most.

Lean Sleep also helps regulate cortisol levels that can STOP you from losing weight and burning fat! 

No matter what your goal is: whether it be weight loss, fat burning, or you want to become healthier, these steps are the healthiest and most efficient way, making it faster and easier to reach your goals.

If you don't need to lose weight, you can do what thousands do: follow the system as described and use the Complete Protein Shake as a snack or meal replacement. My husband loves the simplicity and ease of this plan, and despite the fact that he can eat what he wants and doesn't gain weight, makes his shake with four scoops or milk of some sort and planter butter (lucky!). 

It's the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to protect your health, leaving you more time to LIVE YOUR LIFE and do what you love to do!
