Lose Belly Fat Fast — Lose 2 Inches In 2 Weeks With These Simple Steps
Belly fat is dangerous to your health and makes your body resist weight loss. The good news is it's the easiest fat to lose... if you do these three specific things!
- Reduce your intake of calories, carbs, and fats
The easiest way to do this is to replace your current breakfast with a LynFit Metabolic Boosting Complete Protein Shake 12-15 hours after your last meal. Example: If your last meal was at 6 p.m., try to wait 12-15 hours before you break the intermittent fast. This helps bust through weight loss plateaus and accelerate the fat burning process.
- Boost metabolism, prevent metabolic slowdown and force your body to burn fat for fuel... melt it.
A decrease in calories signals your metabolism to slow down unless you trick your body by providing it with the specific nutrients it needs such as raspberry ketones, forskolin, B12 and 6, and white kidney bean extract. They help lower blood sugar levels and make the fat cells easier to be burned off as fuel. It's the same way Miracle Grow® makes plants grow faster— supplementing with LynFit Accelerator Advanced with Raspberry Ketones makes losing weight faster and easier.
Add LynFit Cutting Edge to the Complete Protein Shake and Accelerator Advanced and watch the fat from your stomach hips and thighs melt off.
Bottom line is... if you can pinch more than an inch from your stomach your body is going to resist weight loss and will require an aggressive approach to jump-start the process.
Taking LynFit Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore at dinner time to help your body digest your meal will force your body to use the calories for energy versus storing them as fat while reducing that bloated feeling caused by sluggish digestion. It also helps to control blood sugar spikes, so your weight and fat loss stay in high gear. Raspberry Ketone Cleanse & Restore will also help restore your gut flora to boost health and weight loss.
- The last and most important step when it comes to losing weight and convincing your body to burn stubborn belly fat is taking 1-2 LynFit Lean Sleep around 9 p.m., or before bedtime. This is the most overlooked step, despite it being so critical when it comes to creating the right environment for belly fat burning. Belly fat cannot be burned off if cortisol levels are out of balance and Lean Sleep helps balance and control the stress hormones that cause your body to burn off belly fat to be reduced. You'll also be preventing hunger and cravings before they begin. Prevention is always the best cure!
This system works synergistically to jump-start your weight loss and convinces your body to melt off that muffin top that's negatively affecting your health in every way. If your weight loss is stuck, it's time to address that muffin top. Until you do, your weight loss will feel like you're driving with the brakes on. Belly fat doesn't stand a chance against this approach!
Here are the Top Ten mistakes you may be making when trying to lose belly fat:
You're not getting enough sleep
From scrolling through social media to having a late-night coffee, there are plenty of ways we unknowingly keep ourselves awake at night. Aside from feeling tired and groggy the next day, not getting the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep each night can affect weight loss.
When we lack sleep, our body’s hormones get thrown off balance, which can impact our hunger levels the next day. We all have two hormones that affect our appetite: ghrelin and leptin. When we don’t get enough sleep, our ghrelin levels (the hormone that makes us feel hungry) rise, and our leptin levels (the hormone that makes us feel full) drop. This means that when we’re awake, we tend to eat more but feel less satisfied. Try going to bed a little earlier than usual to avoid this imbalance, and remember to remove any distractions that might prevent you from nodding off.
You're doing the wrong kind of workout
Doing only abdominal-focused workouts, like crunches, won’t help you banish the bulge. Belly fat is simply where your body stores energy, so you need to take a whole-body approach to tackle it. All of LynFit's workouts are metabolic boosting. HIIT training (High-Intensity Interval Training) is a great way to burn fat and get your heart rate up. Squats and lunges with upper body included are all examples to try.
You’re consuming too much sugar or fat
If your diet consists of adding sugar and cream or almond milk or a lot of sports drinks, sugar-sweetened drinks like fizzy pop and flavored waters, or sugary foods like chocolate, cakes, and cookies, it will make losing weight harder. While whole fruits and some vegetables (carrots, winter squash, tomatoes, etc.) are undoubtedly good for you, they can also sometimes cause weight gain if you eat too much as they have high levels of natural sugars in them. Sugar is sugar is to your cells. By now, I'm hoping that oatmeal and all grains are no longer part of your diet.
You're not eating enough protein
Protein is great for fat loss. It helps build and preserve lean muscle tissue and can increase the amount of calories you burn. It’s also a great source of energy that helps you feel fuller for longer, so you’re less tempted to snack. Good sources include chicken breast, tuna, eggs, milk, and chickpeas. If you’re finding it difficult to avoid snacks that are high in carbohydrates, try substituting them for an additional LynFit Protein Shake or Lean Bar. Remember to also opt for the leanest sources of protein. Some sources can be high in saturated fat—even chicken if you're eating more than three ounces.
You're feeling stressed or anxious
Feeling stressed can wreak havoc on our bodies. It can cause our body to produce the steroid hormone cortisol, which can make you crave sugary foods that provide instant energy and pleasure. Short-term bursts of cortisol are necessary to help us cope with immediate danger, but our body will also release this hormone if we’re feeling stressed or anxious. When our cortisol levels are high for a long amount of time, it can increase the amount of fat you hold in your belly. Hence, the reason you need Lean Sleep!
You're expecting a quick fix
It’s easy to become impatient and frustrated when you’re trying to lose weight and haven’t seen the results yet. Be realistic—you won’t see the results overnight... unless your 100% committed to the plan.
Your brain’s wiring plays a huge part in resisting changes in lifestyle, and it takes time to establish new habits—up to 12 weeks. Stick with it for at least eight weeks, and you are guaranteed to notice a change.
You can lose one pound daily, or more, but those results depend on your commitment to doing what you're supposed to. Slow weight loss is usually human error unless you have extreme blood sugar issues. This is the only plan you'll lose weight on, so stay on track by not allowing your "stinking thinking" to get in the way.
You're not tracking your progress
There are some great apps and wearable tech devices available that make it easier to stick to your plan. They can help you monitor your goals, your food intake, and the calories burned during exercise. If these aren’t an option, write down a meal and exercise plan. This will help you stick to your goals and remain focused.

If you bite it, write it! If you drink it, ink it!
You're doing too much
Your body needs a healthy balance of exercise and rest. Doing too much prevents the body from shifting excess fat. Exercising without rest can impact our levels of the steroid hormone cortisol and cause an increase of stubborn fat stored in the belly. Not allowing your body to recover can increase the risk of injury too, so make sure you factor in rest days to your
plan. If your life is extremely stressful, stop stimulating with exercise and do Lean Core and Recovery Stretch along with moderate to low-paced walking until the scale starts moving again.
Often, weight loss will be stopped if you don't have the right exercise balance. With all the different tips out there, it can be tricky to understand exactly which exercises work the best. HIIT is great for fat-burning and will get your heart rate up, but I’d also recommend including strength (resistance) exercises like the ones found on Fit in 5 Metabolic Workout as well.
You've lost motivation
One of the hardest parts of losing weight is maintaining the lifestyle changes you’ve made. It’s difficult to stay motivated all the time, especially if you’ve slipped up along the way. But don’t let this affect your end goal. If you’re feeling particularly unmotivated, ask a friend to join you for your workout and then cook something healthy for dinner together.
The absolute best way to keep your motivation boosted is to work on perfecting your metabolic boosting skills discussed in this article by being 100 percent committed. Being 100 percent committed equates to losing a pound per day, no matter how stubborn your metabolism is!
